Free Fall

Free Fall

As always

When we connect

I feel

I free fall into you

I am afraid of heights

Yet I am eager to jump

And free fall into you

I look in the darkness

I see nothing

I feel you

I let myself free fall into you

I feel the rain on my face

I welcome its living loveliness

I feel you

Gently coming on my face

Outside my window

The whisper of the wind

Beckons me to free fall into you

 As I so yearn to

I do

I love snow

You are the sweetest of snowflakes

I fantasize about you

Free falling into me

This free fall I so love

I never want to end

I will forego orgasm

If I must

Just let me keep free falling

With you

Eternally on this journey

Bubbles and Childhood

Bubbles and Childhood

Children blow bubbles
Creating carefree coloured worlds
(Spherical rainbows)
Which the breeze blows away
Towards the sun and sky
And evermore

Ephemeral worlds
As innocence and childhood are
In a world
Where children blow bubbles

Dark Dream

leave a comment »

Dark Dream

Dim dreamscape



Dark skeletal trees

Crows peering down

From a starless sky

Your face appears

Your eyes seem sad


You keep looking at me



Perhaps disdainfully even

Coal black icicles

Beneath your eyes

Frozen tears?

And then

The stark dark realization

I am looking at the mirror

In my soul

Those frozen tears

Are not from your eyes

But from mine

My heart melts with sorrow

The light goes out

And with it hope

I am not feeding the crows anymore

For there’s nothing left of me

Would You?

Would You?

Would you like to walk with me

would you like to talk with me

though I’ve placed my bet


Would you like to dance with me

would you take a chance with me

now that we have met


Would you like to hike with me

would you like to bike with me

though the road is wet


Would you like to roar with me

would you like to soar with me

now we’ve paid our debt


Would you like to race with me

would you like to place with me

though we’ve not run yet


Would you like to weep with me

would you like to sleep with me

now’s no time to fret


Would you like to sail with me

would you like to wail with me

though that’s all we get


Would you like to fly with me

would you like to cry with me

now we take the jet


Would you like to bend with me

would you like to end with me

though we have just met


Would you like to fly with me

would you like to die with me

now the sun has set

In a moment’s lapse
At times
I leave

I am not
What I am thought to be

I live
An echo from the past

Full moon
Silver night
Soft snow
Fresh tracks
Scented spoor
Quickened heartbeat
Rush of blood
Within my veins
An instinct that will not be denied

I breathe
The moment

A wolf howls

I wonder

Am I really me?

You Are

You are a raindrop
Like none other
You beckon to a ray of sunshine
A rainbow

You are a snowflake
Like none other
You join a myriad others
A wonderland

You are a teardrop
Like none other
You fall to the Earth
An ocean

You are an eagle
Like none other
You soar high in the sky

You are a white dove
Like none other
You carry an olive branch

You are a star
Like none other
The sun sets and skies darken

You are an angel
Like none other
You dwell in my heart

The Blindness

The Blindness

©Regis Auffray (August 26, 2002)

When the bird came
it landed
on the church steeple
it did not move

People said a lot of things
it was watching the village
it was a messenger
it was an omen

Three days later
it lay dead on the ground

The bird’s eyes were white
The people said a lot

It had been blind
It had come from the dark
Satan had sent it

No one
will go to the church now

The priest sits outside
he looks at the village
like the bird did

People say a lot
he is blind too
he never closes his eyes

I think a lot too
I think
we are blind
I think
we don’t know what we see
