Winter Weeds

In the Autumn of the past year,  Laying down between laurels, You went home to whiter cotton, Leaving me in sorrows of tears And winter weeds in the rock garden. Like an angel you sang me in sleep, Songs of love we use to dance to, Whispering your sweet halos  And brushing back your red hair, With stones of blue, in your coronet.  Wiles of the devil played ruse on me, Taking you...Read On

I Will Wait For You

I’d like to simply ease your mind...

The struggle is significant and exhausting, Growing more intense with each passing day. Though our love expands and blossoms, We're still so far away. The distance is but miles, Not the gauging of our hearts. We love each other with all we have, Should it be measured, off the charts. But alas, we know it is not yet time, As we await for His green light. Though we wish today was ...Read On

Butterfly Milk

Of 'morrows happiness, Sushine tears aglow,  Beautiful webs of silk, Green clover and mint, Vanilla rain falling And marshmallow skies With candles. Sprinkling confection, Caressing me awake, Like hints of treats,  Candy in your hands,  Whispering in sweets And butterfly milk  With straws. Falling pollen of snow, Resting on your wee nose,  Loving you is easy When honeysuckle...Read On

Sleepless Nights

Sometimes there’s something even better than sleep…

It’s exactly as it should be... Wrapped up in your arms like a beautifully adorned present Bodies entwined, The very definition of togetherness, of love. Yes, this is my goal, my dream of the future, my destiny. But, for now at least, it’s merely a vision Of what I want with all my heart Instead of what I have already obtained. And so it is that I find That sleep often eludes me....Read On

Missing You

A love poem to sex with another woman

It has been far too long since I felt Your sweet, soft lips against mine. Since our breasts mingled and danced Yours and mine, pressing into the other Pressing into each other A soft padding Each girl a pillow for the other How long has it been since I held Even a soft hand in my own? Let alone caressed Your curves and mounds? I can hardly remember What it feels like anymore It has been...Read On

Butterfly

A tiny poem about a tiny insect. Dedicated to him, with love.

I'm like a butterfly. Swirling in your lovely warmth. Your imagination is the magic dust That lifts me off the earth. Your loving adoration is the color of my wings, Bright and vivid as the blooming flowers of spring. The mystery and complexity of my design, Are born from the curiosity of your wonderful mind. Fragile and soft in your tender care, Wild and free in the summer breeze. I'm...Read On

Nuanced Ambiance

A ripening unveiling of sweet perfume and wanton hues

Polyphonic offerings exchanged Affecting a softening to pangs That rearrange demeanor in chords Harmonize an orchestration towards relief Like some parched penstemon Pang for wet realize Offering its fuchsia trumpet To the Gods of symphonic thunder This bashful hue of scarlet Invades the paler cheeks Doles out a parsimonious frequency Where claritas rings and chimes the heart ...Read On

The Commissioning

Sometimes we are called to do a little bit more...

As I gaze upon her, just take in the beautiful woman before me, I must confess, there’s a sadness that overtakes me. This lovely girl, this incredible creature, this woman I love with a heart of gold Doesn't even realize who she is, what she has to offer. And there it is again… I can see it in her countenance, in the words she chooses, the way she speaks, How her shoulders at times...Read On

My golden haired lady

This poem is dedicated to one I love

I woke up today and my first thought ran to you, I went to work and my daydreams were about you, I came home and my first deed was to see after you, You are the one my soul love since thousands of years. You wake up and think first of me, You goes to work and daydream of me all the time, You come home and first of all you run into my arms, I am your soul mate over generations...Read On

Stay

When you are finally gone, Removed from my life, It will seem like none of this was real. It will have felt just like a dream. Every moment we spent together I treasured, The moments more precious to me than gold. The time we shared was so rare, I don't want to say goodbye. You were so kind and truly cared. I'll miss your voice, The smile you gave and sweet laughter. Your eyes gazing...Read On

Sloe Gin Of Autumn

It wasn't but a moment ago in time, Of frost and dew...honeysuckle vines And the slow gin of Autumn.  Days it rains, mainly on the plains, In Savannah between songs of birds. The thrill is still there. Our first house and yellow balloons, Gravel path and tea garden, With a willow tree. Grandchildren swinging on an old tire, Lemonade treat in the heat And band aids for their boo-boos....Read On

Penance or Punishment?

Which path should I take?

Five years ago I made a mistake, one I shall always regret. A mistake of the heart, not of the flesh, but irrevocable in its guilt and shame. For five long years I've been on my personal Elba, such is the fate to which I am damned. No closeness, no love, no sign of emotion from my companion, only ice. I know that my own deeds put me here, my actions sealing my fate forever. You...Read On

The Darkness

Tonight I feel the oppressive weight of darkness A blanket of silence and darkness covers me The silence punctuated only by pain's staccato Pain is now my companion, my bed mate Tonight the pain pales in comparison to my longing I miss all of you, the sound of you, your touch The tears trail effortlessly, silently, as my heart cries Loneliness can be felt physically, much like pain...Read On

Six Kisses

How I feel About HER

Six Kisses. Oh, whatever have we gone and done? It started as a bit of harmless fun, And now I find I'm hanging on your every single word Cursing the fact that you are really someone else's bird. I never fucking meant to fall in love, And let your light illuminate me like the stars above, And when I'm shining now I shine for You, My love for you is honest, pure and true. "Where do...Read On

Long-distance love

She would walk through light and darkness, Climb endless hills, cross treacherous rivers, Just for a moment in his arms. There is nothing she wouldn’t do To feel his soft caress, his lips on hers, Know she is finally home where she belongs. But sometime life has its own plans, Even though their hearts beat as one They are oceans apart and have to remain so. Distance can be hard...Read On

Remainders

For an old family friend

I stay dressed in mementos, linked to each reason ghosts give to the remaining, they’re a lullaby hibernating deep inside, dormant until the right season nears. I keep trying to find ways to bring us back, where we'll be ready to know one another again. Your hand, nervous and soft in mine, the winds seeping through our clothes and bones, a song in my ears I used to know but it’s been...Read On

Long Distance Long

Oh, how I love thee...

Laying in their separate beds in different parts of the country, they each hug their pillows close imagining it is each other as they send sweet messages of love. Both wanting, longing to go back to yesterday when they were together, sharing soft passionate kisses as they held each other in the same bed. Now they close their eyes as they drift off to sleep. They remember each other’s...Read On

Caliban

I am the beast that you feel in the night bold girl walking alone in the dark self assurance in your every stride when you return to your home I watch for you I am the whisper you thought that you heard the word that did not quite register at first Your name, spoken low, silent as a spring wind the name I cannot resist saying as a means of worship I am quiet and motionless as you saunter by...Read On

The Tide Rolls In

It's sunset and the sky is red, By sunrise I'll be found as dead. I'm waiting as the tide rolls in, Regretting all that might have been. Not caring if I see the light From all the stars or moon tonight. My story is an ancient one Of love that's gone, a life undone. With shivers I am supine here, The coldness tells me death is near The waters surge about me now, I feel the chill, I touch...Read On

Love's Angst

Waves

I wish I could make it easy, Easy to love me, Love me. That is the way the lyrics go, But nobody will, Love me. Maybe the hurt will leave, If I stay in the waves, Wash away. If I float away, Into the deep, Get lost. They won't love me, I won't let them, I fear. More hurt could come, More heartbreak, No. But I should just rest, Rest in the waves, Let love just find me....Read On

Waiting

for Joe and Mike

I'm waiting for your return, Daydreaming. (Your arms around me.) Looking into your soul, Basking in the warmth of your glow. Your touch, I need. Lovely smile I adore. Sweetest and deepest kisses, I live for. Soulful eyes, Gorgeous face  I love to stare at. So much to touch. Kissing your lips, Eyes and cheeks, (Having you in close proximity to me.) Strong,...Read On

This Quiet Business

We speak in whispers too soft For the angels to overhear I feel them watching, listening, Waiting for us to give up the secret of touch But this is no business of theirs Nor even of this tepid air, redolent With the raw perfume of desire And the salt strain of necessary love It’s no business of the sky Nor the moon and stars This is a private hunger Gathering...Read On

History's Symmetry

Someone from years ago.

You learn to no longer trust any flicker emanating nearby, sweeping over mysterious blueprints each time, memory is the victim of histories crashing and splintering into one another, as these engines tremble, begin to grow venomous. You should have known better, love, than to rewrite such delicate narratives over and over, losing track of scribbled pages inked on the skin and walls...Read On

Rocking Chairs Of Blue

My grandfather to my gran.

Simply because I care, Of things I haven't forgotten. Leaves falling in autumn And honeysuckle dew. Freckles on your nose And rocking chairs of blue.  Simply because I care, Of things I haven't forgotten. Cards on Friday nights, Rand McNally Atlas, Pink bubble gum And your emerald green eyes. Simply because I care, Of things I haven't forgotten. Music on the radio, Little...Read On

A lover's knot

A knight is enticed by his lover while a battle rages outside

A gentle knight, to win a lady’s hand, Made his bid, boldly took a stand. His sword once wielded fiercely in the darkness, Succumbed to his lady’s touch of softness. Instead of giving counsel to his king, The sweet smell of arousal enchanted him. While outside a battle raged on through the night, His mind was filled with her sensual delight. This warrior who...Read On

Eros Innana: The Descent of the Goddess

In ancient Sumerian mythology, Innana (precursor to Aphrodite) descends to the Underworld

Eros Innana By Bethany Frasier (via Calliope) From Sapphic Tales, the Innana cycle The song of love has echoed long A chorus through the ages And bards have offered words enough To fill a million pages From harlots moans to poets rhymes The chorus has been lifted And ever have the gods allowed Desire to be gifted Oh fairest femme in all ideals Art thou the single thought That...Read On

Afterglows

What I thought of during this year's fireworks.

Moonlight filtering in through curtains, to paint tangles of us spilled together, the sways of her body humming in the afterglow. I can barely move during the stuttering frames, frail limbs and muscles collapsed near you. Unable to leave with the cold knowledge that desire can make extinguished wreckage of what we both want. Something beyond us binds two together, promising...Read On

Tiara Askew

A tear and a seed blow,  Planting and new grow, Gentle as trees bearing fruit And my muse... Tiara Askew.  In words, pollen divided  Like honey is too sweet  On beds of toast, Ever spreading romance. Hearkening my sayings  Of Georgia pines and saw grass,  I carry about me my soul,  Composing sensuality I compose. Crooning, the bloom of flower, Opening petals, caressing the hour, ...Read On

Spend My day

I show emotion when I hear love songs, Read romance and watch dancers sway. Listen to whippoorwills call, And say good cheer. That is how I spend my day. I show emotion when I whisper In someone's ear and scented lobe, As shadows fall beneath the magnolias, When buzzing bees are making honey. That is how I spend my day. I show emotion when it rains silently, Of violin strings...Read On
