DEAR GOD

Is there

actually

anyone there?

Anyone

to listen,

anyone

at all?

Calling

for help,

for guidance

--no reply.

Anyone

up there

--no.

GIVE IN

Your arms

wrap around me,

your voice

in my ear

--I tremble

against you.

My knees

get weak,

I can't think,

I can't speak

as your lips

touch my skin.

You control me,

you own me

with your

fingers on my neck;

the simplest touch

makes me

give in to you.

FOR MOUI

The new friend

I've known

for years,

just now

realised.

A voice

over the phone,

a shoulder

when needed,

a confidant

with secrets,

a conversation

over coffee.

A new friend

of many years,

finally seen.

MY FRIEND

For Crystal

A shoulder

to cry on,

a hand

to hold to,

a friend

to learn from:

You have

always been there

either for

just a talk

or to share

our fears.

You have been

my shoulder

to cry one,

my hand

to hold,

and most of all

my friend.
