Bliss

Bliss 1

Smooth silk
Envelopes
Our frenzied flesh
Your strong hands
Part my thighs
The taste
Of our lust
Savored on
Soft bitten lips
Wicked desires
Realized
Again and again
Leaving
Lingering sensations
That pulse
Through the depths
Of my soul…

Sometimes It Snows In April

 

There are no words for the loss of the electrifying and timeless artist known as Prince.  One of my favorite songs by Prince is the little known “Sometimes It Snows In April.”

It is a different and beautiful sound, not what we have come to expect from him.  His lyrics made all the more poignant on this, the 21st day of April.  Yes, sometimes it snows in April and now that snow has melted into tears.

Prince Piano

Sometimes It Snows in April

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,
Just after I’d wiped away his last tear
I guess he’s better off than he was before,
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
I used to cry for Tracy because he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don’t pass you every day
I used to cry for Tracy because I wanted to see him again,
But sometimes sometimes life ain’t always the way

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
A time for lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy’s tears
Always cry for love, never cry for pain
He used to say so strong unafraid to die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture I realized
No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad
Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy’s there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he’s found the answer to all the April snow
Maybe one day I’ll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
But all good things, they say, never last

All good things that say, never last
And love, it isn’t love until it’s past

Tempest

Your scent
In the air
Like the rain
As it approaches
Silently
Hidden in the clouds
Your hand
Suddenly at my throat
My heart beating
Fiercely
With the passion
Of the storm
Building
Within you
