Broken Sonnets for a Departed Lover - I

Night can be the loneliest time

Waking at three in the morning, my eyes Damp for some reason, I lie silent in the dark Listening for the familiar fall and rise Of your soft breathing; but only the stark   Emptiness of absence surrounds my frail Vacuum. My heartbeat throbs like your cock Used to, while I can only weep with hatred at my stale Desire. My brain screams at me, begging me to mock   My ridiculous...Read On

Where Apostles Now Rest

In shadows of an illuminating moonlight Feverish touches to excite Eager bodies entangled, as flowing streams sail throughout the night Love showers soar on an ardent clandestine flight Burning desires sinking as passionate flames persist to ignite With soft caresses kissed to your skin This night fate and destiny of our union blend Midnight yearnings echo a lover’s slow dance As doves...Read On


Your scent all around me

My beautiful feeling of eternity Your voice screaming pleasure but saying nothing I am waiting for your hands to find the light in my soul As we share the sheets of our love. Our skins hurt as they have been wrenched apart I miss you in every room now you are not here  I walk between the orchids and the roses  But yours is the only scent I feel  It has surrounded me since the first day ...Read On

Strings Of Rachmaninoff

In the twilight my eyes gone bleary, strings of Rachmaninoff filling my ears fueling my mind's wistful inquiry, and my poetic monogamy. And as a ghost, not so cheery, smiles and tears alternatively flow, my weakened heart grows weary, as sunlight fades and stars glow. Shadows at dusk silhouette my heart as sins remain and your love departs, tears rain down in my inkwell's pond staining...Read On



  Glancing shyly up at you from under my lashes I get lost in the depth of your brown eyes It’s like I can see into your soul which twines with mine perfectly The way you gaze at me makes my heart skip a beat It’s like you can see into my soul as well I long to feel your strong arms embrace me and keep me safe and warm I long to wrap myself around you and hold you tight to me. I dream...Read On


Map of Love

exploring the delicious touch

She lies beneath him As he explores the curves of her body Like a traveler studies a map A map unfolded for for his eyes only No GPS required to Find the treasures he seeks Her treasures are for him only His strong hands explore her curves Slow and steady never in a hurry He Learns what makes her gasp and moan Her likes and dislikes her highs and her lows He smiles when she quivers and moans...Read On


Phoenix Love

Not two but one

As we walked through the flames of time Searching for Our true one  Love   Hand in hand Coming through Stronger Renewed Pure Not as two But as one Love   Phoenix sings Wingspread  Warmed by  Love As one we rise Song of love Sung to the Gods Mortals giving praise Circle complete Love As we walked through The flames of time Soulmates reunited Brought through time ...Read On



A rewrite of a much older poem

I knew the shape of your face as well as my own,  but true contact marks us deeper than skin,  beyond flesh and vapor into the ether, realizing that we can never go back to a world's beautiful axis without being  suspended inside its crippling inertia. When pulled into eyes like glowing oceans, the strobing tetras in mysterious dark waters, vast enigmatic depths below such a...Read On


A Night Out

Inspired by a song from the Stereophonics

It’s 7 O’Clock in the evening, Getting ready to go out shave and shower done, She puts on her make up, standing looking in the mirror with her lingerie on Slips into her dress, we are ready to impress   It’s 8 O’Clock in the evening, Paying our entrance fee, no membership renewal required Head to the bar, have a good look around, Get our drinks, take our seats and wait to be found  ...Read On


Echo in the Mirror

In silence, I sit and I stare at a ray of sunlight It’s forced its way through the cracks in my window blinds. Blinds meant to block the glow, Meant to keep the radiance out. But, it finds a way to penetrate Cascading down, Etching shadows in the ripples of the wood floor. It wants to rouse me To open my eyes and breathe life into my soul. I run my fingers through the beam, My skin...Read On


Casket for my love

I buried my love down deep in a casket, I couldn't keep For a day or two, I did gently weep, crying softly, sure my heart t'would break I wiped my tears, staining filigree lace I walked on muddy rivers edge,  looking for a vow to keep, Something to remind me of my youthful beliefs All I found was decay everything is made to fade away, To turn to ash with the passing of the day....Read On


This Moment of Afterglow

Loving session ended, time for reflection

If I could take this moment now, And put it in my pocket. To cherish once more should love escape How might I then review it? Could I catch again that sky above, As ‘bible black and starless’ as Dylan’s ever was, Creating the deep, deep, dark that Could not hide the blanket on the terrace Where you lay, legs and arms out wide, On offer to the sky? To the world? No, Only to me....Read On



Our tease is coming to an end...

Surrender to my touch As I surrender to yours. Our tease is coming To a shattering climax, As we surrender our bodies and souls. It will come fast and hard. So hard. Clothes ripped and torn, Pushed against the wall. Eyes screaming, Full of lust. Desire. Taken as the candles flickers. Again, And again. We hold each other's key, Knowing we are claimed....Read On

Akimbo To The Stars

And when the hour is at its rest, over the sunset as the Autumn's night shines through my slats, akimbo to the stars, and jelly jars. Of everything you mean to me, and moonlight tea with sweet kisses from your lips like ginger snaps, akimbo to the stars, and trading cards. Dancing to the wind-borne echoes with the strings of the mandolin, akimbo to the stars, and you my puffin. ...Read On


Her Perfume

Her love was intoxicating like her perfume

Her perfume captured, My nose unawares With a sweet intoxicating, Smell just like lavender. That knocked against my chest, That touched my heart As it pulled me with my heartstrings, With a strong tungsten rope. As it propelled, Me on a soft breeze As it strikes the sails on my boat, Guiding me to the window of my soul. From where I stared, Unashamed from the harbour  Across the sea, As...Read On


The sting

The lash

The sting of the lash the feel of the leather and you seem to be able still to hold it together   The heel and the toe the feel of the leather and now perhaps not so together   The pinch of the clamps the feel of the steel and now you can no longer feel   The pull of my fingers the tug of the chain and now all you get is the exquisite pain   But it is the feel on your ass ...Read On

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Do you remember your younger days?

Skipping on your way home  on a crisp spring day crossing the half empty plazita the flowers blooming  the birds happily chirping   Suddenly, "OMG, OMG" your eye gleam and sparkle your heart skips a beat all while the races  you feel your cheeks flush   In the distance you see Him the only one whom takes your breath the one whom makes your words stumble the only one yours...Read On

Not absent from my heart and thoughts

There is an absence which resembles presence, a loss which is less than loss should be, because though absent from my arms my heart is full of you.   Your scent lingers, and I keep your soiled knickers  under my pillow to remind me as I play .   You are my Lode Star, yours as I never thought  to be for any but am for you my twin compasses other half.    ...Read On


Not just the now

When beauty adorns the morning sky  And joy is rich as  sweet alloy Not just the now As within the sheets she lays In quiet sweet surrender  Her body stilled  Replete and filled  What joy as she released her musk That did build again since dusk  My heart aglow  The passion burning  My deep desire  Resplendent in my hands  Her olive skin awash with scented seed To reach out and touch  I...Read On

Love shine a light

Love shines a million times brighter than the sun

Let love shine a million times, Brighter than the rays of light That beat down upon us From the midday sun. From the four corners, Of my beating heart That I wear on my sleeve  As time stands still.   Light up a firework, As the magic that’s within  Explodes to bring forth A brand-new day. To carry forth my love, As it flows downstream Towards the might river Before entering the ocean of...Read On

Editor's Pick


I didn't know it could hurt back then, we were drunk on bliss and sweet wine, glowing in ways the young always do, a raw light through us that can be almost too dangerous to touch. It was all instinct and velocity, we'd come to know it as a sacred rush, as wanting more than one can really give, so we'd reach below and find the kind  of fire that made us feel as if we belonged. It was never...Read On


She spoke my name

There is power in a whisper

She spoke my name  She spoke  my  name A simple thing and yet... It released within me  Such depth of feeling. Oh May I plumb its depths!  Rich in expression A symphony of sound an explosion of peace and joy. The beauty of a wild meadow planted in my heart.   And what of how I speak her precious name?  Her name is but the whisper  On my heart that keeps her close. Her name  Her...Read On

Love Of My Dreams

From the cachet in my mind's chrysalis A rebirth of regenerated passion emerges As a brightly colored butterfly takes wing So my love filled heart does sing In the warm sunlight of the morn On gentle breezes of the day My soul takes flight in search of providence The elusive love of my dreams Of the Mistress behind the veil Whose eyes make the sky seem pale With words my heart to sail...Read On


Words to help and heal

In the depts of my soul's greatest longing A voice spoke, words to help and heal. Words to melt this heart of mine,  Softly spoken, so divine. Whispered deep within my soul. Words I've often longed to hear, From my dictionary, erased by fear. Words which came with such delight, Words from which my fears took flight. Simple, soft and warm inside, Beauty rare, restores my pride. ...Read On

Blushing Red

Chance Love

A new beginning

  Both having insecurities That stem from broken hearts And issues in their past   Both are pleasantly surprised By the depth of emotion And how quickly it grew   How through a simple glance Deep into one another's eyes they are able to tell, oh so much   Or how being held close Wrapped in one another's arms Makes them feel so safe and secure   The brush of their lips ...Read On


My Creed

To glimpse a heart, a gift most rare A beautiful spirit not rushing away. Submissive yet open, radiant and calm, In quiets confidence she dwells A chosen lifestyle of beauty rare A balance of power driven by care To bend the knee and give of yourself  Is the greatest gift to bestow on "one" My hearts desire is to know you more  To possess what I cannot have It is not fair for me...Read On


Beyond the Stars

I can not breathe For you have taken My last  breath I am shaken  My love was pure Untouched by hate Spontaneously given Yet never a mistake  Worlds are colliding Beyond the Milky Way To create a paradise For us I pray Nights are so long I crave so much To hear your voice A simple touch  Heartbroken Torn apart My best friend Why must you depart My world is empty My heart is shattered...Read On
