The Queen Of My Heart

Lines of remorse for my shortcomings as a lover, and a pledge to devote my whole life to my love.

My dearest one, I love you more than any words can express, And only when we are together can I be fully whole. My sad heart aches for you in your distress and unhappiness. For anything that casts a shadow over your precious soul, Stealing away all the enjoyment and delight from your life, Makes me unhappy too, for you are the chief source of my joy, And I bless that day when you consented...Read On

A star of hope

The darkness surrounds her, Silence making the voices in her head scream louder, Impossible to ignore as they gnaw at her soul, Tearing and clawing, bringing destruction. Invisible shackles only she can see, feel, Grow heavier in the dark. She can hardly move, hardly breathe, As the weight is pressing on her chest. All she can do is lay still, just be, Search...Read On

Come Fly With Me

Lines to my lover in her dark distress.

Oh my dearest one, what means this anguish, That clouds in pain everything you say? A dark shadow its baleful wings has spread Over the fair beauty of your pure soul, Driving out all the joy and happiness That I thought we had found, so free from care, Playing like children at the dawn of time. We had something so pristine, far above That granted by fickle fate to so few, A...Read On

Widow's Dew

Until the widow's dew and I lay me down to rest  as shadows cross over my pen, we will be like garden peas  from seed to pod in our infinity together in life's garden of it all with undying ink. And through autumn of our years with rains and snowfalls  beneath the umbrella of love I will kiss your loveliness,  as the dusk closes my eyes  until the widow's dew, and I lay me down...Read On

A Lovely Thing

It wasn't but a lovely thing on porch swing some time ago, when I first held your hand when we were teens and the fireflies wink. Then we went steady and you wore my class ring,  many springs ago at the prom  listening to Johnny Cash. It wasn't but a lovely thing, then you took my name and with champagne we danced, on porch we kissed. And then in winter's snow  you left me...Read On

You

Darkness Loneliness Abandoned and wrecked, Lost in my own mind. Scars lace my skin like bracelets, Tears have stained my cheeks countless times Bitter and cold, That's what I was becoming. You were lost too, Like a lamb finding its way to God Only you couldn't find your way And you became disoriented. Just as I hit the abyssal emptiness, I thought it was the end I thought I could no longer...Read On

Calliope Tree

Like a carousel turning counter clockwise on an axis of fond memories,  the effervescence of you  beneath wind chimes that sing and calliope tree. In silence your kisses blow enchanting my sins, like sherry stirring my emotions  of soft breath from a decanter and scent of yesterday's wine. Now in caress of carousel rhymes  and sing-a-long times of sugaring kisses, we slide upon...Read On

The Sun Dies Away

Setting in the west, the sun dies away. It rose once upon a time, once when we were young. It rose and our faces turned toward it, seeking the soothing rays of satisfaction. Grasping, clinging together, we sought the ways of light, the ways of edification and sweet adoration. We sought each other, two hands bound into one,  founding a friendship and a simple centering  of understanding,...Read On

Uncoupled

Uncoupled from expectation, I believe I can be everything that you deserve, be the shapes in your eyes where the light strikes to illuminate them as vibrant and potent as the torches that hang in our night sky. Just slow this down, I'm only winded from the chase, not from when our hands join and our steps are harmonious taps along the road. The sound is like concentrated rainfall,...Read On

Self-Confidence

Girl, Darling, My dear friend. Please don't do this. This, whatever you are doing, Just stop. You don't need a man to define you, Much less, a man to make you strong. You don't need a man to tell you, Just how beautiful, you really are. And you especially, Don't need a man, to tell you how sexy you are. Fuck that. Instead, walk to your mirror, And say "I am...Read On

Places Near

As Chopin is to nocturnes your melodies are to me,  with ringing chandeliers and whisperings in my ear of candles and lark  and far off places near. Under spell of romantic interludes  and angels gliding in mid air, wearing tiaras of love and ambrosia kisses.  you my Hosanna beneath moonlight  as Chopin tickles the keys....Read On

I Was Always Strong

No. Nothing is wrong. Go away. Go away. Please...don't stay. Is it time to get up. Is it that time again. To get up. It's dark inside. Is it time to get up. It's time for me to think. I need to think. I need to let my memories bathe me, and rush over me, until I feel nothing. Nothing is wrong,  and I feel nothing, because it's not my time to care anymore. It doesn't matter. It isn't...Read On

Life’s Highway

True friendships will surely transcend.

Roughened pathways and trails we travel. Trials and tribulations, we try to unravel. Souls touched, hearts associated. Paths crossed, memories dictated. Connections made along life's trail. Sometimes continue, sometimes fail. Hearts touching, sometimes at high cost. True friendships made, are never lost. Highways traveled, be they short or long. Leave...Read On

Did You?

Did you my love, ever really feel the need? The pull of me... Across your aching belief That love, pure love is not what we make But the depth, the hunger, that everlasting ache Promises you made never meant to fulfil The taste of the end so bitter so still So I ask you today this hour this night Did you ever see a future when you held me so tight? You whispered my name as you came...Read On

Tick-Tock

Hearing tick of tocks on winter's snow like a blanket of silk the sins blow,  as my whispering pen scribes  green eyes and rising tides of my thirst. More ticks of tock my words sow on thin ice of my darkening scrolls,  reaching out with a kiss I behold  words of spiritual thine. Laying my tongue upon swooned flesh as the scythe shears the winds,  on the toll of my farewell jesters...Read On

Out of Place

The insecurities in me make me feel...

Confused, unknowing what to do. where do I go? Chocolate box, drown in it? It too can kill you. Breath... Scream... Yes I am alive, but why? The situation before me, my heart uncannily vulnerable, wounded, bleeding... Feeling alienated, a weirdo on my own, on my knees crying. Breath... Scream.. Yes I am alive, but why? Efforts, accomplishments, lost loves. Do I even matter?...Read On

I'm a believer

You only find that person who can love the real you once and it has nothing to do with age

Wake up, blink sleep out of your eyes, look around and see, it is a whole new day and I am here to stay. The sun is up, blazing burning bright, It fades the darkness if only for today. You only get one chance, one moment to make a dream last, So take it, grasp it between your hands, take a breath, close your eyes, take a leap. What does it hurt to say okay, give love a fair chance, we...Read On

Other Side Of Good-Night

It is not my alone that sings melancholia  on the other side of good-night in the parley on my own get-togethers, for in words I verse silently discerning  of my angel lost in nirvana.   On wings of dust and puffed candles  they alit and kiss me in darkening grotto,  as my obelisk quills my sins  the yens of thirsting quests. Oh! what praise I shrill composing ambiguous  betwixt the...Read On

Harem

The king, his harem Riding into the desert Forever searching. Looking high and low Searching for more gold, foolish Women to behold. They, in hungry greed, Can never be satisfied Riding all night, hard. Hoofbeats pounding sand, Lotus scent filling the air Draped in rarest silks. Lovers kiss and tell, Madness barks at the moon and Their gold gleams brightly. My...Read On

Screen love

Internet love is real, and as such, can become painful

Modern day, Electronics, full days. Love, who has time? We all do. Distance becomes no obstacle, as a soft click of the board, and you are within reach of anyone that you connect with. It is an era in which you fall through a screen and your heart becomes addicted to spend hours waiting for them to connect... a smile as you see the name flash on. You suffer because you know you cannot...Read On

In the eye of the storm

She lives in the eye of the storm, Trying to keep things together As the world around Is torn into pieces, The forces of nature Causing havoc in their path. She can do little but breathe, Trying not to panic, Keep her emotions in check. The small things in her control She has tried to do, Hoping the damage stays manageable. There is no telling If the storm will move on Or hit...Read On

Was'ents Aware

In my memories I reached back into the archives of my dreams, as if I had lived the essence of you  and the rising tides... eventfully they do. All the while with smiles you cast upon the meadows down below, in tall shadows of our evermore with gentle kisses coming my sway, as clover dance and blow. And I was'ents aware of butterfly sails on wings of colors they do tell and...Read On

This Never-Ending Cycle

One look was all it took Before I felt myself fall again. It happens all the time, This endless cycle. I fall, I break, I heal. You come, you smile, Whisper to me your sweet poisonous words. I get sucked in, and the cycle starts again. How you have this hold over me, I'll never understand. This addiction, The need to be near you, The need to hear your voice, To feel...Read On

Blank Page

Where will my story go?

Sitting staring at the pages my mind at ease, but empty. The past written down, The present... me here. My quill upon the clean page, A smile upon my face, The breeze, soft and crisp. It is the cool of spring. These words are dedicated to those people who were in the early chapters, companions of my life.   Good, bad, teachers, angels, but eventually executioners in my past. ...Read On

Trembling Bridges

Into misty swirling drifts of doubting  creep the feeble fears that feed regrets remorselessly until the dawning. Droplets of lovelorn dread bedew your flesh while the shadows cover your vision of what might have been but is no more. Is there no pathway to regaining your bearings and rebuilding  the mansion of memorable embraces once found but now unredeemed  since the shade crept in. ...Read On

On Wind Songs

On wind songs I pray love so true as the leaves fly and skitter,  in meadows of the fall  and winter near after. On wind songs sigh of green eyes  and the fires of December we touch nuzzles,  sweeping kisses on our flesh. On wind songs of absolutions my glorious winged shadow,  hallowed be your words of our sacred vows. On wind songs carousel  and the calliope sings, as our...Read On

Peace

With you I know peace

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

Dragonflies In The Light

A Poem For A Dear Friend

You say you're gonna go. Can this really be? I understand your heartbreak, but please! Take a moment just to breathe. Such a loving soul with a caring heart; I can't bear us growing apart. He caused the pain, that's put you in such a rut; I love you more than every Pizza Hut. Please don't go, don't break, don't leave. You are beautiful, Lucky, to me. Please don't let this be the end;...Read On
