This is a writersliftwednesday blog, sharing the works of fellow writers, poets, artists and persons random. All re-blogs will be linked appropriately to their authors and creators.

Writing is no easy calling and nothing easy was ever worth doing. Support each other by sharing, liking and commenting.

(1) feeling a yearning for ecstasy / just slightly out of reach / … until it’s not. “Urges,” by Susi Bocks.

(2) I smiled because the night / had not long begun and / moon was young again / I didn’t even knock. “Her Soft Light,” by Paul Vincent Cannon.

(3) “Scorpio Season,” by Tom Bell. Tom is on YouTube sharing his musical talents with the world and a very cool sub of Sassy Scorpio Tarot. I couldn’t help but hear the layering of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in this very unique piece. “One Eye Shuffle” is also one to give a listen to.

1. “Urges,” by Susi Bocks via I Writer Her

lust takes hold
an uncertain future
plays out delightful scenarios
there is an engorgement of the senses
looks exchanged, bodies trembling closer

once hips begin to undulate
pulsing bodies find themselves
like waves crashing
into each over and over
again and again

instinct takes over
desire is paramount
and tensions are strung tight
feeling a yearning for ecstasy
just slightly out of reach

… until it’s not

2. “Her Soft Light,” by Paul Vincent Cannon via parallax

Moon was not in my sky,
she was out somewhere with
pisces, meeting new faces,
I could hear her laughter cascading
across the atmosphere and I
determined a direction,
her soft light leading my curious
heart, which lead to, of all places,
the seventh house, and
I smiled because the night
had not long begun and
moon was young again,
I didn’t even knock.
