“Love & trust; butterflies dancing the jitterbug of intimacy” JD Butler
enlightened, child-like & open, a huge lotus in full bloom, full of all the goodness in this world, his beautiful, broken body without any malevolent, preconceived notion’s designed to use & abuse.
He stole Psyche away, saving her spirit in the process, magnetic pulses strobe lighting his way ahead, kinesthetic mind & limbs – delightful fullbodied jolts, his presence filling up the many holes in her senses.
a mere mortal woman; barefoot, pedicured nails flashing glimpses of autumn in-between the dirt, her toes digging in, surrounded by jealous sister’s who would pick & pull her apart given half the chance.
She struggles, resisting all that is good for her, sidestepping melodies with fragrant twists & turns; allowing old fashioned vintage love to lead her astray, before two left feet trip up & over, falling into his arms.
in full swing, is the opposite of temptation & betrayal, so she stays & sways to his tune soul breathing, learning to trust a backbeat into grace.
