Aquatic Love Story

Aquatic Romancer:

It’s your captive dancer

I’m afraid that in the moment of seduction

Having been stung by love’s poison

And strangled by emotion

Chained, locked, and dropped to the ocean floor

forgotten in her devotion

in my blurry vision . .

I might have sent the wrong impression . .

The truth is

While I’ve been kept prisoner

in your windowless tower

And your copper wire

penetrates deeper and further

in the blood black subterranean

My hunger has reached a desperate station

You

know your skin

glitters in the sun light

And your eyes

glow like moonlight . .

So what’s the reason for

Keeping me in the dark?

Screaming

I only want yours

I beg you remove the blinders from my eyes

so I can see you in all of your glory . .

–     Aquatic Love Story

Don’t Cry

Heaven is a hospital

where we suffer in silence

faces pressed down patients

pillow talking after dark

and we whisper promises

we tell the truth

the doctors there

serve the sick rosewater

to wash their wounds

yes that’s where

I’ll find you

we’ll be laughing

bleeding

lying still

pressed against the plastic

we’ll be together forever

waiting for our next codeine pill

we’ll forget the world while

our blood pools and dries then revives…

The bandages are made from cotton and

the needles from steel

White linen..

and your soft face..

White roses stand in glass bottles

in every window sill..

Helium balloons tied

in a silk blue bow tie..

Ribbon on my wrist

where they left me bleeding

drowning deep in my madness

it’s a high point, feeling nothing

teetering on tippy toes

in my cotton gown..

I squeeze your hand

and in suspense

you feel for my waist..

There I find you acting

as my sole guardian,

the gentle handler in charge of

my frozen heart,

tending to the blood,

sweat, and the rot..

In the evening

at my bedside

turn off the candles

lean into the metal cradle

move the hair from my face

kiss me good night

kissing your hands

tied inside delicate lace

I’ll float to outer space

and sink into golden sand..

Separated (Your Black Princess)

Separated —-

I still remember the feeling

and your voice

at the center flinching

in the middle

of your telescopic lens

cross hairs

pierce into me

have you forgotten?

Didn’t you say

Don’t be shy in front of me,

and,

it’s yours

and . . . .

from under

your smoldering eyes

and heavy body

little drops

didn’t you

poison me

and then

put me on top . . ?

I want to stay that way

sweet skin

burning

we kiss to kill the pain

I need you everyday . .

so waiting for your return

i won’t complain

i’ve waited this long

already…. trembling

mumbling your name

blindly insanity

i promised i’ll love you

as long as the winter is cold

you gave me freedom

so violently

left my heart choking

on empty light

lock me in, I’m devoted, floating

crown on my hair so

it’s your time to bleed

I go deep, dripping down my cheek

signed and sealed

the one in the silk dress

— your black princess

Silver Lace

Sweet like suicide

leaking from the inside

torn heart

blood drop at needle point

ink blot

satellitium of swords

titanium rounds

wrist wet soaking

ice

rinks

silver

sphinx

lotus

pillow

you know us

now you know us

stuttering

on your coca lines

It was crunch time

now so magnanimous

Known in LA London Soho

Beijing Soho

Midtown RoRo

Effortless I’m in Tokyo

Crash in on your show

shout out Kabuki-cho

now take some more

like I’m a fucking ghost

Feeling so right

no time for date night

I’ll meet you at the port

and when I’m out in town

let’s talk over dinner I can

give you top like I’m a fucking cop

then I give you none like I’m a fucking nun

less you with the funds and the Porsche

then son it’s all yours

seashells seashores

ho hum come all the time yum

silver lace and a dime

like I’m a wedding rhyme

like an angel’s sigh

Lolita cried

like Cleopatra eye

Chariot whip nine

bridles i’m immortal

win a trial by fire

unlimited power

It was reckoning hour

 

Gang / Kissing you from R+J

This week I recorded At the end of the week, and after having much needed sleep, I recorded Gang and also a sing along with one of my favorite tracks from the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack from 1996. I am not sure what they have to do with one another beside the common theme of painful love. In Romeo and Juliet, the Montagues and Capulets in the 1996 film are portrayed as mega-rich property owning families whose young men behavior causes strife and conflict all over the city in some kind of anarchistic passion play of family loyalty.

Brother i’m for the gang

i’m from the south

I offer it up

From my back to my mouth

I know you’re feeling tight

worked all night

Have to treat your brothers right

Already know the price

i am faithful i am yours

for the gang

lock the door be on my knees on the floor

don’t know my name any more

In the gang on all fours

I’m a dog

Steady eyes and no surprises

you move slowly

do you feel the light?

pay a human sacrifice

orgasm in Arabic

Google and Wikipedia offer a few different translations:

هزة الجماع

النشوة الجنسية

رعشة الجماع

The 1962-1963 ELIAS English Arabic dictionary (XIII printing) gives us:

انتعاظ

تهيج جنسي

and هزة الجماع again.

 

 

 

The 1979 Al-Mawrid Al-Muyassar by Dar El-Ilm Lil-Malayeen (which I must have been particularly fond of when i was a little girl for its photographs and illustrations) forgoes an entry entirely.

 

 

Do you know any words for orgasm in Arabic? Colloquialisms? Slang? Please tell me! Even if they are not scientific words, certainly words worth knowing!

I’d like to do research on the concept in Arabic and Islamic sources.
