    I can slip away in a crowd
    and make love to you in
    broad daylight
    because people have long
    ago, stopped 'seeing'
    me

    your realm is the
    fifth dimension of
    my inner space...

    I am naked, yet I cause no
    scenes because, somehow
    plain truth is hidden
    in the sway of
    my carriage, in the
    lilt of my speech

    no, I do not bold face
    lie

    But no one wants to
    deal with who is
    'real me'

    my cloak of
    miscommunication,
    covering my true
    nature in complete
    invisibility
    is more comfortable...

    and so

    with no shame
    I go to you
    to speak in
    my real voice
    saying as little
    as I please
    knowing we are
    communicating
    in the perfect
    language of the louds/softs
    of silence, if we choose
    because you look at me
    see my nakedness
    and call it pure honesty

    when you extend
    your understanding
    I feel the power
    of your integrity

    we make crazy
    love in public,
    privately

    for undiscerning
    eyes
    will never see ~

    this is

    very revealing, indeed.

    making love (crazy!) in public....privately.

    I 'see', ms. a.....I certainly see!

    no gaze can penetrate the barrier that cloaks the true nature of who we are
    while we make passionate love,
    to them we appear simply as talking to one another
    yet
    in a another world
    where time stands still
    we are involved in orgasminc pleasure
    for no one sees
    they ignore us for we are really not here
    and they are blind to what reality truly holds
    for to see us clearly for who we are
    and witness the love we make
    one must look through the beacon of the House of Lights
    in order for revelation to occur....
