first, click on the Fortress of Solitude to finish growing the series


man reaches for the stars
and gets violently burned in the process
man reaches for the stars
wearing the latest in earthling technology
and discovers a further star
man reaches for that star
until his bones break
man induces labor to reach for the edge
a task for the children
man and his race explode
the edge is a bit farther away than first calculated

man reaches for the stars...

name a time in your life when DESIRE overwhelmed you, desire welled up in your heart so headily that it felt like bursting, like a morning heart attack and an early grave, a moment when your desire for something or someone nearly killed you...then really killed you

Desire... for the one man I truly want overwhelms me every day, every night, each and every moment in between.

The panacea for my aching mind, body and soul is your gorgeous tum... x

desire for something is a wave to ride on the way to that thing.
Sometimes seemingly slow, obstructed by the damndest things, but, it takes you along and keeps your heart beating in your great, long journey to...

Great music.
Hey...they even had a picture of "you" on the cover.

I should show you the flower I draw as my trademark, it's truly evil...

I think the death of my triplets is the only thing that came close to that, with the burning desire that they live... it nearly killed me that they didn't.

Speaking of being killed, my blog has been killed on Blogger. I am recreating from scratch at, come check me out there!

I just might have a little Superman fantasy...


Elle said...

I'm not sure I've ever desired something that much, and that, in itself, is kinda sad.

Molly Rene said...

I'm with Gucci Mama on the Superman fantasy.

I can't remember desiring anything that strongly in a really long time. I'm pretty content with everything--especially now that I discovered that Golden Girls marathons run nightly.
