Do Soulmates Even Exist?


When will I find the one?

That’s what people wandering wonder;

they worry over love, and finding their soulmate,

never considering that

we are capable of loving many

over a lifetime, and


all at once.


My heart is full to swelling,

and I wish it wasn’t

because it makes it

harder to be true to the one that

I want to be the one


The one

I see myself bound to for eternity.

Chordae Tendineae


Pluck me a melody from the sinews of your heart—

be mine

own Orpheus; private poet,

sing me your soul.

Tell me you’ll give me adoration, heavy—

more than mine arms can carry,



I promise I will dance for you like


cherished wife.


I promise I will strip for you like

prostitutes do,

but for the low, low price of

one true sweetheart.


Pluck me a melody from the sinews of your heart

when I wake up bathing

in mine

own vomit, cos I gone and done it


got stupid

over the love of a lyre.

Viscera in Danger (revamp)


Their need is visceral. Oh!

Pretty blonde girl,

fresh trailer park trash,

junkyard dogs snarl and quarrel over your flesh—

tongues wag to get at your bones.

Twelve years old, and

your marrow is aromatic.


Mother’s a full-time drunk, and you

only got a part-time daddy.


Good luck, babe;

welcome to Contaminated Manor.

Find your place in the Court somehow


letting them taste you.

You Cannot Have Me As You Like (revamp)


I know,

I know,

I’m such a drag—

sucks you

cannot have me as you like.


Menthol ciggie makes my mouth pertty

dirty, but the

whiskey makes my tongue taste like

Sunday morning


Are you really so disgusted, or just

pissed I make you



So I’m not Lady-like.

I’m Woman-like. And

you’re a fucking drag,



Such a fucking drag—

sucks you

cannot have me.

Turn the Night On- Christine Ray & Stephen Fuller

Christine Ray and Stephen Fuller are a writing match made in Heaven. ❤

Brave and Reckless

Won’t you stay,

My love?

Outside snow falls steady

Gusted by north wind

Tapping at our window

Inside these walls

A fire burns


So softly

Spread your

Raven hair

Upon my pillow


So gently

We will unfold

Our layers

Like origami flowers

Reveal the

Treasure at the core

Offer it like pearls

That dissolve

On our tongues

Won’t you stay my love?

turn the night on


Won’t you stay my love?

Turn the night on


Won’t you stay,

My love?

As bitter winds blow

and frost grows in ferns

Across the window

Inside these walls

A fire burns


So softly

Fall into my

Chocolate eyes

Across the pillow


So gently

I will rub

My hands across

Your silk skin.

Offer the

Tenderness in your core

In small gasps

That dissolve

On our tongues.

Won’t you stay my love?

Turn the night on


Stephen Fuller…
