JAEDE Street

She calls to me
I trying to remove the subconscious blanket of a dream
Running to catch this elusive creature – she
Before time dangles her out of reach

Playing on my addiction to her
She toys with me a bit
Before inviting me in
But indeed I step in . . . I step in

Of food and sleep – I am deprived
They gladly stepping aside
As I offer myself to her
Yet again . . .

Pain of withdrawals almost too much to bear
Then I feel it going in
As she slowly enters my veins
Bliss seeping through my entire being

Reality fading to black
As her universe slowly into focus – comes
I-slipping into illusion
Admiring how it fits me like a glove

Her world melding with mine
As time ceases ability to define
I partake of her until I can no longer drink
We becoming one

Sweet feeling of complete surrender I embrace
Before the light of mundane reality
Does early dawn wake
Chasing my mistress . . . CREATION . . . away

I’m a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my
internal landscapes, wherein, i explore; survivor issues, spirituality and sexuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share.
