Deeper…Still (Spoken Word Poetry)

Hi everyone!

Tara, one of our fellow poets, asked me if she could record this poem.  What an honor!  It’s very special to me when a reader sees such a value in my work.

So, I’ve provided Tara’s version, and my version.

Thank you Tara!




You feel it,
Don’t you?

The natural cooling,

The evaporative effect
Of sweat
Now glistening,
Your skin…

A direct
And immutable result,
Of passion,
Physical connection…

And release.

Releasing you…

And you…


There is nothing
Like it,
In the human condition…


But in this
Past passion moment,
As we fall back
To earth,
And reality,

I want you to know…


I need you to accept
And more fundamental,
And important reality.

Our passion…

Our embrace…


Our sex…

Our perfect love.

But I beg you.

Don’t stop here,

Don’t stop now,

We can

And must

Go further,

To a deeper,

More important,

And satisfying place.

This is more
Than sex.

We need,

We need to go

To that final place
Of commitment,
And trust,
And overwhelming love.

We need to go
