nice shoes

NE suggested a slightly different take on my audio clip below; ever the benevolent dictator, I've replaced the clip with the newer version.

— 

Tonight is a time of hunger, when the wolf is close enough to the surface that I can feel the cold yellow eyes looking out.

is it ever enough, a bit of blood, the ungentle allure of the forbidden – 

is it ever enough, lips parted, eyes closed, breathing it, drowning in it –

is it ever enough, cutting against the grain instead of with it, as if the welling of need can be stemmed by nipping at the heels, chasing tail instead of heart?

I don't think it is. 

— 

May I suggest – this is best listened to alone.

the princess and the leash

dark was her hair
    'round bout her waist
soft were her kisses
    so carefully placed

 —

We are reasonable men, are we not? Reasonable fellows, given to speaking of reasonable things.

Reasonable, that is, except in affairs of the heart.

D'jaevle, Obedience

a poem, like a cage

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ on January 25th, 2008 by D'jaevle

But I am patient, and I understand something fundamental about the dichotomy of your role. It's not me your fighting. It's the coiled desire you keep so tightly in check, the sliver of need I've awoken.

It is surrendering to your desire you fight against.

And my firm grip, my gaze as it watches you, my words that detail the way I will lay you out as a feast, the knowledge I will follow through, despite your own fears – these are just the first steps.

— 

'Don't Feed the Words' said the sign.

D'jaevle, Signs

favored by the sinners

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ, Poetry on December 31st, 2007 by D'jaevle

   You are faith,
        favored by the sinners
        forgiven but not forgotten
        first to be filled
 
           last
               to flinch.

     in silence
         sentenced.
 
     in stillness
         left

     you belong here.

Happy new year, children.

I am off to the city of sin, to enjoy a week of decadence.

Here, a small gift.

Listen.

the lost children

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ, Poetry on December 7th, 2007 by D'jaevle

 

I prefer the greedy girls
    the lost children
        who have forgotten not
           how to play
              or pray
                 or
                   may
                       be
                           they have
                                  but they're good at pretending otherwise

 

Sometimes I see my words as sharp, covered in jagged edges, a sweet, warm and jagged pill.

D'jaevle, Unfinished

Please, resist.

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ on November 25th, 2007 by D'jaevle

We treasure that which hurts us most.

  the greater the sacrifice
    the deeper the wound
       the darker our desire to take the hand that wields the knife.

Turn out the lights. Close your eyes. Listen.

And then tell me.

Will you struggle?

I'm hoping you will.

Paths

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ on October 10th, 2007 by D'jaevle

If you could see the path in its entirety, knew the broken stones upon which you would stumble, the shade you rest under, the dark promise at its end – would you still walk it?

Close your eyes – no peeking now! – and listen.

my sins for yours

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ on September 24th, 2007 by D'jaevle

I slumber beneath your heart.

I breathe in your pulse and slip into your blood stream, each word a need you no longer have to deny.

autumn

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, General Musings on September 12th, 2007 by D'jaevle

This was the view I enjoyed from the back porch this weekend.

 

I'm off to the Shenandoah mountains for a long weekend of reading books in a place where I can taste the approaching Autumn; it has always been my favorite season, and I am ready to embrace it.

Here, some rambling thoughts that might amuse you while I am gone.

good girls go to heaven

Posted in Captured - The Spoken Word, Crimson Writ on August 31st, 2007 by D'jaevle

I first learned the intricacies of sex through the written word. Voice followed text, and I became a disciple of language.

If I can bring you to your knees with my voice alone, imagine what is possible when I have you in front of me.

I don't need to touch you to make you wet.

I just need your faith.

The last of my three recently recorded audio pieces, this one is best experienced while alone.
