The Hampshires ( A Short Poem by James J)

In the Hampshires a young boy rides his bike
The rickety spokes keep turning tire tread
On the pond a fowl paddles soft and slow
Raindrops ease down the withered clock tower

In the Hampshires an old man sits quite still
The crumbling stairs support his whisky cup
The barn hides rats in its dark wooden walls
The wind carries the scent of a deep rain

In the Hampshires an old dog lays restless
A velvet chair holds his dusty worn bones
On the sill a crow awaits its next meal
Echoes as soft as a whisper are heard

Burn In Love Tonight ( A Poem By James J )

My soul is on fire with desire

My scars are burning as your lips press against my chest 

The chains that have held me prisoner for so long

Are being unlocked and unwound 


I can feel your breath all over me 

Filling me with a rush of passion 

I could hold you in my arms 

for an infinite eternity 


I envy the hearts that you’ve adored before me 

You could tear me apart, piece by piece 

You could give me a thousand scars more

And they would be my favorite tattoos 


Our bodies touch as our eyes hold our fears 

Your heart is safe with me love

I will protect you and adore you  

We can burn in love tonight
