Tapping's Of My Heart

In still, the shadows hint the stirring of trees,  Coming of the dusk, insuring hours of hark, As my pulse quickens in lusty fashion And I in my candor, reading Annabel Lee. Sloshing of the tides upon the rocks slop And I in nightshirt take big chill, Of the visitor in my day dreams, Caressing the passion of my be. In mist of clouds, my seeing eyes blear, As I adjust comfort on...Read On

The River

Dedicated to my beautiful SydneySider

Fresh dew upon the green, Moist against her skin. Ageing trees cast shadows, The gentle breeze creeps through. Swirling hues of liquid, Lick at her fingertips. Beaming sun’s reflection, Still no answers she finds. Whispered, silent wishes, A river of lost dreams. A glint of hope remains, She calls for love once more. Soon her prayers are answered, He is there, in her dreams....Read On

Sauter

This is for me, read if you wish

Out on the ledge, I sit and I wait. Unknowing which way the wind will blow Behind me is safe and a land of familiars In front lies adventure, love, and freedom Above me a sky streaked with beauty and colour Below me sits yesterday’s life that I’ve lived To jump and to fall takes me back to the past Nothing gained, nothing lost, just where I was then To jump and to fly, like symphony on...Read On

You Are

You are the brightest rainbow After the darkest storm has passed. Bright stars in the midnight sky, The ones I look at when missing you. Hoping that I will see you again soon. A silent moon, on a starless night, Guiding my heart safely home. Tiny whispers on the wind, Telling me you love me again. The gentle warmth of the summer sun, In my garden. An unending field of roses, ...Read On

Heated Pool

Leaving work early to meet you at the pool. Needing to beat this awful heat. Driving quickly. Sweat dripping down the back of my neck. Hurriedly changing into my trunks. Catching my reflection in the mirror. Not as trim as I once was, but you'd never complain. Showering. Thinking about seeing you in the pool. Scanning the chaotic scene for you. Kids doing underwater handstands. Moms tending...Read On

The Shift

Then one day, everything changed...

There comes a time as you travel this life When you come to a fork in the road. You're unsure of where you're going to land As you head on to places unknown. The journey is filled with both excitement and angst, Change is hard and is not tension free. But still you're aware you need a big change And that it’ll take you where you need to be. As the months have passed and rolled...Read On

Neon Fantasy

Violet eyes Under sunlit skies Blink for silence, Kiss of violence. Ride the skyline On the neon nights A Glossy shine For something divine. Venus opens On the carnation, Calls your name From the end of the station. A long journey Across the milky way, But the sky is turning It’s here to stay. Bright lights A mask of dreams, Sexy sights Catch the screams. Black leather; Leads us...Read On

What I Want

My very first piece. Honest opinions highly regarded.

To have love, to have been loved To want and to be wanted Is this what it is to have lived? Is this who I am, or am I without a path? A nomad in this world, a wanderer, a Ronin Are not the best destinations found without a map? To follow free will, a whim, or a myth Does knowing what to want defeat all purpose? It is the journey I need, not the trophy awaiting Am I in this alone? 7...Read On

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

Offer New Love

If you loved me then  But don't love me now, Did you really love me At all. If you touched my heart But won't touch me now, Did you really touch me At all. If you gave me trust But can't trust me now, Did you really trust me At all. If you cried each night But aren't crying now, Did you really need me At all. If you took my hope But are hopeless now, Did you really use me  At all. If you...Read On

London Love

To J; you are my darling, my love, my mon amour. I love you. We danced slowly during dawn in Scotland Pink, blue, lavender with the golden sunlight  Peeking it’s way through the beautiful morning hues We kissed beneath the blanket of stars in London  The dark indigo sky wrapping itself around us  Kisses so gentle, sweet, so very full of love Sipping petit noir’s avec de la crème in...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

Aurora

For someone I know

You've already unmade one world to tether yours to another,  all of the numbers and names,  a river's cold cleansing hush to me of details far too dangerous to hold. A lens cracking from the strain of trying to see there has to be more to you,  instead of devotion turning me into a cautious ghost,  blind to all of time's afflictions. Unable to let anything else out or in,  so...Read On

Green

for Intense One

I call out for you but you are not there. Perhaps You think the grass is greener Somewhere else. Maybe it is newer, Brighter. The dew clearer, The blade shinier. These may be true But I am sweeter, Truer. And I love you. I don't understand Why you don't answer, When I call for you. Please don't trample  On my heart. Don't throw me away. This grass Wants to keep growing,...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
