Waiting

they know who they are.

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

Reminisce With Me

Reflections of days gone by...

That impassioned look, The mere thought of your smile, Your sassy ways and your classy style, How I love you! Yes I dream of you all the day long, Your sensuousness, the crazy laugh, Your glowing eyes and sexy curve of your back, How I need you! I look for your mouth And your sweet, bitten lips, The fire burning inside that I just can't resist, How I want you! I remember...Read On

More than a friend

What started as friendship became more, much more

It started with a comment, a simple review, but it led you to me and me to you. We talked, we laughed, we found common ground, and before we knew it, a friendship was found. We explored our likes, our dislikes, our hates and our fears and realized that we weren't afraid to shed tears. You told me about you, how you wanted it all, and you helped me to stand, so proud and so tall. ...Read On

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

Ceremony

It always comes down to rooms like this Dirty with moonlight and music too sad For the occasion of her thigh Pouring out of slow breathing sheets Only her scent touches me now In the wake of moments already lived Yet hovering in dark time Like places we could go back to River of sinew, flesh and bone Flowing through a rapture of touching Soft animals nourished...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
