When he held her hand

They lived a happy life

When he held her hand, She was a young girl. They walked and talked, And often he'd take her for a twirl. When she became a young woman, He got down on one knee. He asked her to stay and become his wife, She smiled and kissed him, and they started their life. As husband and wife they lived their days, Raising the children, and giving them praise. Still he held her middle aged hand,...Read On

The Collide

For someone who is always on my mind.

Everything dims around me, a bulb's filament fading fast, the light along warm bodies cautiously receding when we reach for one another, our naked shapes like two darkened continents afloat, struggling to collide in our new forms. Consuming me now as much as the first time I tried to unravel your mysterious layers, the clues and fissures bringing us closer to entwining, closer...Read On

Back to the Violet Coast

A poem to Melissa, the Honeybee Nymph (and my writing-partner in the UK)

The nine muses sing 'round the fall faerie ring While we dance in a circle of stone And the embers glow red as we dance with the dead By the sidhes where the faeries now moan Our arms slowly raise to the Goddess we praise While the passions we share rise anew And my lover is filled with the nectar I spilled 'Pon her lips as she kissed at my dew The smoke from the fire where...Read On

For Al

Wherever you are.

Thank you my friend for saving me When I was drowning. Your kindness touched me Like morning dew kissing a rose. Your generosity flowed, Like sand in an hourglass Shaken by the universe. You were there when  I needed you. I can still see your face, Though I never held your photo. You were drawn by my beauty, Basking in ethereal light. I miss seeing your blue jacket, The...Read On

He Sings To Me

He sings to me, songs of love As he comes to me at night Singing sweetly in his low voice Each note, he hits just right His hands are lightly calloused But his touch is light as air His fingers gently caress my skin And wander through my hair So tender are his lips on mine As he claims them for his own He whispers softly into my ear "No more will you be alone" He holds me...Read On

Musings From a Submissive

Who you are is nothing short of wonderful  You let me be my independent self We wrote each other for hours  Yet still I remained ambivalent  Then I heard your voice:  Confident, nonchalant, humorous  A smile danced across my face as I listened to your every word And as we talked it became quite clear,  I would be yours, and only yours Even when you command, By no means harsh...Read On

My Soul

Two rambling rovers we would be, The world was ours to roam, you see. We spent our lives in ecstasy, Enjoying life so gay and free. That was the map we made before, To travel wide from shore to shore, And open every secret door. Each hidden path we would explore. The future may be blocked by fate, And something might just close the gate. Your given span may be too strait. Tomorrow's plan...Read On

The Shadow

Only dreamers Standing in the shadows  Free of judgment and rejection  Masking their fears  Their eyes are  The window to their souls  Where all of their secrets hide  The cries of their hearts  Cannot be seen  And their tears  Cannot be touched  Sometimes the shadow  In the dark comes out  Walking towards  A wishful dream The storm raged  In their hearts  Lightning flashed  Through...Read On

When you have all of this ... You have it all

Sweet whispers and touches

When you feel his hands on your body His exploration of your curves When you hear him whisper in your ear  How much he desires and loves you You know, that this is the beginning A need, a lust, a want, a desire, a yearning When his lips touch yours so softly Tasting your passions delight When he caresses your back gently Letting his hand glide over your derrière You know, this is...Read On

Old Friend

To my life-long friend, I'll never forget you

Old friend, has it been that long ago since we made all those plans? *** How we would grow old together, laughing our way through life, doing all the things we loved so much. *** You did all the foolish things, yet no one dared call you a fool, for you saw through the real fools, and you let them pass. *** Life has a way of evening things out, but you drew the short straw and never...Read On

The Light of My Love

My life's sole purpose is to live out my days bathed in the light and warmth of my love.

My life's sole purpose and my single aim, In ceaseless wandering the wide world o'er, Far greater in import than worldly fame, Great riches, or e'en philosopher's lore, Has been a tireless and resolute quest, For my lost love, the one beyond compare; Of greater worth by far than all the best Men's hands have made; a love so sweet and fair That I would gladly go...Read On

Your Eyes

for Bleak Messiah (Cory)

I see your eyes and I want to swim endlessly into them, Drowning in such sweet delight. Just looking at your picture makes me gasp. Glimpsing into your soul, desiring you so. Warm, sensual, inviting. They are mirrors to your emotions as I never want to stop looking into them. Your face is just exquisite, One I could never tire of. I want to kiss it, caress it and Cup it and...Read On

Giving up Control

This poem is about learning to let go and enjoy the ride.

I was a bundle of nerves, my body acting as if it were a live wire. Jumping upon silken sheets. All I could feel was your rough hands pressing down on my lower back, trying to hold me. Relax , was the only word my ears could process over my own muffled screams. Turning my face away from the pillow beneath me I tried to breathe. But it was hard with the pressure of your heavy body...Read On

Longevity

A poem with a silver lining

The warmth of your breath, a soft caress. I feel your heart, beating in your chest. My breath on your neck, and then my lips. I hear you sigh, floating in bliss. A kiss, a touch, a moan, a sigh, they’re all wrapped up in you. Each time we’re together, it still feels brand new. How do you make me feel this way? My thoughts always wander; you hold so much sway. Over my...Read On

Touched by Grace

Love comes into my life in my twilight years, and by its grace, lifts the darkness from my soul.

By what strange quirk of fate, I joyful ask; That happiness so sweet from out the blue Should come and bless the twilight of my years. Every moment that in her love I bask Holds such delights, my life she does renew. Amazed am I that she should take my fears And soothe them all away. The mask of pain Lies broken at my feet, and in its place Bliss so lambent, that...Read On

M’s First Tie: Epilogue

There will be no more parts to this story.

M’s First Tie: Epilogue A story of love, I have dedicated. Most was true, some I fabricated. The beginning and middle is all I will share. To scribe the ending, I could not dare. The ending is of unspeakable torment. It lives inside me and is never silent. I discovered something time cannot heal. This aching thing, that I must conceal. Two long years, of constant aching. All I...Read On

Sic Luceat Lux

Thus let the light shine

Too long in love with easeful darkness, Replete with sorrow, filled to the seam. Plucked from its depths to bask in light's caress, As if slipping supinely into a dream. Poured forth from my lips my soul as sultry prose, From a heart as heavy as weathered stone. Words softly whispered, cadences a hundredfold, From naught but love, and flesh, and bone. The warming amber of dusk’s...Read On

Nightmare's Cure

She is my cure for life's past horrors.

I begin to write subdued and meek but ever grasping the ring I seek. As we circle back a final time I grab the ring. It’s finally mine. I was told the ring would bring reward, that the quest could end in death by sword The modern sword a mortar shell. Hit the ground or run like hell. Tuck and roll as I hit the ground to distant exiting chopper sound. Extracting wounded...Read On

For You

Delivered upon as agreed . . .

Dearest darling, Separated for far too long,  days blurred into weeks and weeks faded into months. Incessant passage of time, missing the feel of caressing your cheeks and your emotional depths. I yearn to once again be transfixed, stationary engaging between us ours innermost feelings and to reinstate in terms probationary hopefully to reignite our most torrid dealings. ...Read On

Dream

what a person experiences when he can't have the one he desires most ...

It was all over his mind, he started dreaming again. He started dreaming about her, all about her, and nothing else. His thoughts were clear, and filled with her. One moment he thought about the life he wanna live, and the next moment he realized that she was his damn life! He wasn't in control, his dream took over him completely. He couldn't imagine a life without her, ...Read On

Horizon's Aim

Gasp my arrow, against wetted angst... pinned.

Swept all else to backdraft voids My past… flowing close to following Never-the-less eros prevails As pain takes backseat to hearts hollowing You, the keeper of steps forward Filling the now-empty with your sensual ache Regret not experiences taught Proffered lusts promised, mine to take Fever's heat, drying saline blur  Taking to the street on sleek machine Your tight lines, skin-tight...Read On

My Love a beyond Compare

For my mysterious lover, who is beyond compare, a love sonnet.

To sing her praise, all other loves I'd shun;  And when at last we're wed, upon her head;  Sweet kisses I will shower, one by one;  Then stroke her hair, so lustrous, and so red.  And in her lovely ears, throughout the night,  I'll whisper tender words, and when she speaks  In tones like sweetest music that delight  My smitten heart, and which her love bespeaks,  For me, so from my eyes...Read On

Trailing

About last summer

Sometimes you're only fading mist clinging to windowpanes, trailing my every second as you have before. As if we're still encircling the same unforgiving, violent mirrors of one another. I just wanted to stay wrapped up together, the knowing rhythm of our bodies perfuming the dark, the warmest place I'll remember, tracing bridges I've been meaning to mend. But it's not time to go yet, to...Read On

You Were There

Though one angel was lost, another one remained.

On the darkest day, a day of uncertainty and confusion like no other, I was lost, no direction to be found. I was flying blind, no instrument to guide my way, no beacon to help me pass the rocks thrown in my path. *** I was grasping for answers, trying to find my lost angel. She lost her wings, flying too close to the sun, too close to the danger, too far from my reach, too far from...Read On

Silent Moments

Some things exist only in the silence, in the spaces in between the noise stolen moments in life's chaos where true love simply exists. When life's constant noise stops finally we get to just breathe. It is in these rare moments when we realize life's fragility. Love, for me, was always fleeting. Finally, I found a beautiful man whose soul hears all of the words I could never begin...Read On

One brief word

Just one brief word would be all that it took to restore happiness

All I can remember is your angry voice, That is all I hear when I try to register you in my head, That and nothingness. And then I wonder, have you now made your choice Totally to exclude me from your life, as if I were dead, Or worse, meaningless. Is this the meaning of your silence? But then How could you blot me out of your mind so easily, I ask, And get angry too. ...Read On

It Matters Not

The lamenting heart cannot stop…

I'm lying here in the dark Morning has yet to break My vision is not in sight So my hand reaches out for you A deep sadness rolls over me And like the tide, it sweeps me away The love of my life has arrived But alas, she's just not quite here yet On my side now, I grab the pillow And crush it to my chest Through the thick, dense fabric, I feel it My heart pounding wildly...Read On

He Calls Her

Priceless

Dormant, she sleeps until awakened by One who steps in through vision and dreams Dream's Master He calls her unto Himself Neither slave nor a strumpet is she Then gently she's set upon potter's wheel Again, with a sigh must He mold, sift and shape Tools now by His side unseen by the common He begins, steadfast in mercy and grace Undaunting this task Quest now set in love...Read On

Like a child in the rain

Thoughts on the ending of a love affair

A dull ache, like some half-remembered pain Is all that remains of what we once were Together; but that is in the past now, And I am left like a child in the rain, Cold and alone, peering through misted glass, Eager to glimpse the light and life within, Craving the warmth of love, but all in vain. Forgotten now is the laugh in your voice, The touch of your hand, the...Read On
