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

Ether

When SHE forgets to bring me home cigatettes.

Salt sugar, stark dark as taillights drift and float upon fog. A scent in the ether, either you or I hear foghorn ferrules and now the time has come. Tell me I am not alone? Not the only one?  Brass engines hum with numbing heat  As noxious as a fucked upon sheet  As aware of pressed leaves in a forgotten book.  But look...  Twinkled candles matched your eyes as  At our party, clowns...Read On

Heart of Roses

A colorful heart of roses, Around my neck I wear. Representing the love  I have for you. The first rose meaning I love you dear. Secondly is the sun and the moon and the stars stolen from the skies. Thirdly, is my heart  In which I so gently give. Lastly is my submission. Loving my heart of roses, I wear them near and dear to my heart. Touching them softly when I think of you....Read On

Ocean's Roar

Gazing at the shore Above the ocean's roar I look upon the moon And long for her once more Waves go rushing in I see her face again And wonder if she'd change My loss into a win It's doubtful now I know Still I did love her so But feelings fade to gray When loving cannot grow Saltwater mists I feel Near shores that still seem real Without her smile so bright My ship has shown its keel ...Read On

Writer’s Block

I cannot write. The words won’t come, They do not flow, they do not run. No musings glowing on my screen, Nor rhyming couplets to be seen. I sit and stare, then stare and sit And that’s about the size of it. * I’m trying write, my words are stuck Type, delete, yet still no luck. My thoughts of you a jumble now. I’d like to say, but don’t know how. So I pick...Read On

May I Love You?

Man seeks permission to love and is sweetly rewarded

May I Love You? May I stop here before you, And linger a while? May I ask you to dance, And get a big smile? May I reach for you gently, Your palm now in mine? May I place my hand here, Right at your side? May we step so very slowly, then quickly like this? May we speak in hot tango, Our moving, sweet bliss? May I dare to catch you, And hold you like this? May...Read On

Nothing But Lies

Lies, it’s been nothing but lies Black words etched into my bleeding heart Contaminating the past Memories crumbling, falling apart Those summer evenings we lay Together, gazing at the stars Whispers of endearment Plans for the future afar Are blown away with the storm Amidst them, my heart and soul Left with shattered pieces, I wonder If I’ll ever again be whole I...Read On

When She Kissed Him ...

what someone feels when they're being kissed ...

He felt a moment of ecstasy, and a feeling of joy from his heart when she kissed him. It was a pure joy, like magic, which can't be explained but can only be felt. He was like a man who got superpowers. He smiled, forgot his fears, his problems,  his joy, and even himself.  He forgot the whole world, feeling like he was outside the universe and nothing can...Read On

For one brief moment

For one brief moment, I curl into myself, The ache and need is building. For one brief moment, The need for comfort is overwhelming, To be touched, To be held, To be special; if only for this once. For one brief moment, The air behind me changes, I feel warm breath on my neck, Followed by soft lips. For one brief moment, Hands glide along my back and into my hair, Fingers grip...Read On

Melody, Memory

You are the music that plays in my heart...

Whenever a song plays on the radio, I don't know why... A tear falls down from my eyes, It hurts so much to continue listening, You're the first person that comes to my mind. And if I sing along with it, I don't know why... The memories of our happy days flash back, Wishing it would not be so painful to see you change, Wishing you were still the man you introduced me to. And when the...Read On

What's Wrong and What's Write

Dedicated to daddysweetheart

I write what I write, I write just to spite, 'Cus it's my release, And sometimes I'm a fright. I write things for him. I write about sin. Some sex and some lust, And the shit between. I write about love, And I write about me, Exposing myself, For the critics to teehee. I don't care what you think. Maybe you think that I stink. I probably do.. Sometimes I write when I drink. ...Read On

Chat window

You are but a dream to me. A small piece of brightness that I close my eyes to see. A voice in the night, that I will never hear. Just a screen name to cling to. Sign on for that thrill, the kind word, the gentle hello.  (The fantasy I reach for,) A diversion from a lonely life a few stray exchanges to keep me sane. I imagine your voice, your face, your hands all of which, I've never...Read On

Everyone has love to give and everyone wants to be loved
