Thursday photo prompt – Peace – #writephoto

couch

Snuggle in bed, peace at last
Noise in the city, such contrast
Breeze uplifting as leaves sway
Perhaps a sweet dream as I lay
A place I call my own, hope no one will trespass

I’m on my own coming today
I made my bed, it’s full of hay
The trees protect me from the sun
The bed and pillow from birchen
Life is cool and peaceful in my own hideaway

After my nap I’m back in form
Back to work where I could perform
Challenges to take with no fuss
Happy to serve, that’s a bonus
Then a Chinese meal with friends, hope there’s no storm*

Photo-Fiction #95 – The siren call of desire

hqdefault

The siren call of desire
Wrecking my whole existence
Scorching me like a fire
Satiating me in every instance

Every fragment of my being
Still longing to be with you
The ecstasy that you bring
When you’re away I’m blue

What have you done to me?
My yearning swelled to a roar
To all my being here’s the key
You hit me right to the core

Your wild ways and salty language
Make me foolish with craving
You’re my complete package
To you I absolutely cling
