Against My Window

When I sent her a song of love She released a turtledove  Into the air it flew with a coo As she autographed my heart And when she sang a melody Her fingers played strings of harps  Beyond the sunset of her smiling kind As the turtledove nest against my window And in the melancholia of the dusk Everything was all starry-bright When I sent her a song of love Over...Read On

Never Finding

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Biting steel but soft Are his eyes as they shine In the darkness where Wanting is still a Perhaps. Lips curved and strong, Breaking smile, Breaking me, Breaking heart When I wake to a room Without him. Lines of his jaw, Harsh and tempered with life Where the dreams of his soul Make their mark on...Read On

Lunacy

Love's predation can be cruel

Its covert voyage has disguise Under currents harbor decree Stalking flow to all the humbled Intent on catching those lonely Glimmer lures the weakened ones Hope’s reflection of what might be Cunning waves then crash down upon And pull all screaming out to sea Wicked tides rip each from their life Confusing ebbs quash their plea Tumbled drunk by teary oceans Much too salty to clearly see ...Read On

Sugar On My Fingers

She's always new and beautiful, When she holds me tight, At the break of day, In the dead of night. She wraps her legs around me, Leather, silk, and lace. When I've been a naughty boy, She puts me in my place. The lady is an angel, In a sensual state of grace, My essence and my Mistress, The one to whom I race. She's the sugar on my fingers, The honey on my face, OH how my body lingers,...Read On

Fractured

"Forgiveness is the final form of love" ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

Imprisoned by a reign of darkness, a turbulent storm has breached our seams. I am enfolded in the echoes of these fractures, stranded in this bittersweet stillness, where it feels so very wrong to remain. Rolling thunderclaps have shattered the solace as faint shimmers of lightning arcs illuminate the sweeping chasm that separates us, a distance carved between motionless bodies once...Read On

Allow Yourself to Spin Widdershins

Release yourself into the winds, Allow yourself to spin widdershins. No better time to be alive, Allow the best to yet arrive. There is no fate, no destiny, Don't cast your lots, sing out, be free. Your sails unfurl and move you out To serve your dreams, to dance about.  Caressing breezes trace your face, You feel the grace in its embrace. Stay trapped in life as freedom sings About...Read On

New Love

Don't you wish you had a new lover if you don't?

When the deed's been done, it's fun to lay with you, in the afterglow, of what new lovers do. It's what new lovers do, every chance they get. and we do it too, so hard, so sweet, so wet. So hard, so sweet, so wet, is what we have become, ever since we met, joined at the hips as one. Joined at our hips as one, as well as at our thighs. That I love to lay with you, should come as no surprise....Read On

We Remember

When I am ashes upon the shelf Will you remember me When you feel your skin tingle Will you remember me When you sense a breath in your ear Will you remember me When you see my toothbrush by the sink Will you remember me When you see my pictures Will you remember me I saw your name written in a book And I remembered I inhaled the scent from your clothes And I remembered ...Read On

Animals

Only love can calm the beast within us all.

We are animals with urges, and desires we can't control. Everything about us, completes our heart and soul. Not whole until we know, what we are is true, and our urges and desires, can be kind or sad and cruel. What gets us through the night, or through a long, dark day, is bound to be alright, to keep Hell's hounds at bay. A man is incomplete, when defeat's a breath away, and there is...Read On

First Whisper

Dedicated to Enchanted1

Ever since that first whisper, you've been hard to resist The love that nourished from our friendship ended up difficult, to consist Our love grew strong and without boundaries when you came to me with just a whisper I have now followed you and gave you my mind, body and soul, and that will never be a blur.  We burst into energetic lovers, enticing, mesmerizing... sensual love making. ...Read On

Winter's Stillness

Why weren't you my destiny?

She's stuck in winter's stillness, stalled at Christmas time. Fog wraps its wings around her and hugs her while she cries. The love she found, she'll never own.  The Christmas gift she craves.  Destined to be without her.  To another, his love, he gave. Another already wore his ring. She'd arrived late to the revelry. Seemed someone else was living her life.  Why couldn't he have been...Read On

I Am Yours, You Are Mine

Love can be found in the least expected places

Everything in my life seemed upside down  Days filled with loneliness deep enough to drown But suddenly you came into my life picking me up and holding me tight  And everything that was wrong suddenly became alright At that moment I smiled because of you I had known  That my heart had finally found a special home You have been by my side through times bad and hateful  And Darling...Read On

Our Turn

And every time I hear that same old tired music I see her face again Lit by whatever screams light In a crowded southside club Everyone was dancing and beautiful Because everyone dancing is beautiful Songs about whatever lasts forever Because something always does – Be it heartbreak or love – And I had to lean in close and whisper Something about love and fucking Just...Read On

Beside You

She sleeps like an angel in the early morning after.

Lying still beside you, in the early morning hours, my love for you is blooming, like a field of wild flowers. Like a field of wild flowers, swaying in the breeze, my heart and soul is dancing: mind and body are at ease. Mind and body are at ease, with the perfume of last night, when we did the dance of love, and got the movements right. We got the movements right, each and every one, as...Read On

A Full Moon's Harp

Letting loose with a chortle of glee Of happiness in our martial whimsy Like life's carousel spinning our love And acorns falling from a tree As you hug me beneath the blowing leaves When the honey bees hum most tenderly I'll be kissing your lips to catch-me-up And with a gifted line we will twine our time As our love of life takes a shine Feeling the vibrations of the full...Read On

Every Day's Thanksgiving

I give thanks everyday for her love sweet love.

I'm thankful for the love, I've known through the years, and the passion I've been shown, to love away my tears. She kissed away my tears, my fears, my pain, my doubts. Giving thanks for all her love, is what today's about. What Thanksgiving is about, is giving back to her, tenfold what she's done, for what we are and what we were. What we are and what we were, all comes down to love, and...Read On

So Much More

A love that never quits.

Her smile, her touch, her breath, her kiss - is what I'm longing for, But all of her is what I miss. She's so sweetly so much more. She's the one who can complete me, when the pieces just won't fit. And did I forget to mention, I'm in the thick of it? I'm never going to quit her. Bit by bit we're growing strong. Whenever we're together, we sing the sweetest song. A song of love and...Read On

Nonentity

I wonder what lies beneath

Would it be okay If I stopped to say I know you Not your name That has now changed But you're still you So many before Walked out that door Just to again return Pretending to be A different somebody Some will never learn If you can't be you You can't be true So really, what's the point I shake my head At all you've said And roll up another joint Dumb myself down Dress up like a clown...Read On

In Cahoots

In my bedroll with poetic aspirations 'Neath a starry sky and blanched moon All alone with hardtack and biscuits In cahoots with shadows on the plains As the sage blows across the lands Listening to my mind as I define Cowboys and Stetson hats As the prairie dogs bark While chanting a yippiee-ki-yay Breaking a string on the fiddle An the cactus flowers blossom I'll be...Read On

Grace

You move with a grace I could never possess, the hem of a skirt caught in a faint breeze, bare legs revealed as the wind rose in its almost silent seasonal symphony. And as where my heart is fitful, drawing restless thunder, yours is the calm before every storm I long to know. You can summon hardness from the soft, find smoothness along stubble with delicate wandering fingertips...Read On

Lost In Love

Just nod if you can hear me

Why did you come here What is it that you fear Why do you vanish And then suddenly reappear Why did you pick me Did you think I'd not see The weakness in you Or this living hypocrisy Perhaps you saw it in me Itching and begging to be free Welcomed with open arms No longer some huge mystery Here we are, together at last Stuck trying to erase the past Now I have a partner To help throw...Read On

Believe In Soft Winds

I believe in soft winds and hat pins to stick Wind up widgets and gadgets that click And scratch off lottery tickets I believe in love words and incense scent With little soft kisses and silly sniffles And an embroidered hankie I believe in love and conceptual sins Making whoopee in compilations And harken the herald to the Man above I believe in wedding bells and wishing...Read On

A Candle's Reflection

With a candle's reflection in the mirror of my mind If I could see you now and feel your blush That I would raise the curtain for all to see A metaphor of an angel that you bring to me And with a whisk I would stir distant trails Of sleigh bells and good eggnog cheer  On fallen snow and mistletoe With a candle's reflection in the mirror of my mind Flowing softly like a...Read On

Sending Off

What's the score?

Is it fate How we relate When things are great We celebrate We shift and spin Honoring our win Ignoring our sins The darkness within There is no pain For me to explain No way to complain When we've gone insane Going day by day Is there any other way Should I simply stay Is it time to walk away Perhaps a little nap A voyage sans map No arms around me wrap No love to fill the gap Until ...Read On

Sonnet — Heartbreak

Tell me truthfully how it came about, Explain to me where things went so astray, That joyful certainty should turn to doubt, Those bright flowers of love stained by decay. My aching heart is full of unnamed fears, Dreading to hear the unforgiving truth, Assure me that all will not end in tears That time itself will be unable to soothe. Speak words to prove my disquiet baseless, ...Read On

Spilled Champagne

Love kills softly and slowly, Like a disease it enters, Filling you with its ugly decay, Creeping and crawling away. Sheathed in concerto, Singing passion with gusto, Lying whispers to the heart Intoxicating your mind, until nothing sane remains. You fill your voids, and dig your hole, Like worms it wriggles into your core, It eats at your membrane, gnawing away, Leaving you with...Read On

Sixty Four

Even 100 years would be too short with a women as sweet as her.

I'm sixty four and I still want more, of her warmth and love. We've been together forty years, and still that's not enough. Another forty would survice, until we learn to fly, HIGH in heaven - from cloud to cloud, above a deep blue sky. She still tugs on my heartstrings, when she walks into a room, because of the pure joy she brings, that's never out of tune. Because of the sweet songs...Read On

Love So Far Away

So far away but our love has never been stronger.  So far away from each other but I feel you next to me.  I think of you every day in every way.  Every heart beat is just for you.  Though we will never meet I will never let you go.  Every morning I whisper 'good morning, my love' but not to the man lying next to me.  Even though I'm not your wife I pray she makes you happy.  I'm...Read On

Tonight's The Night

He gets up the courage to ask her a question.

I got my saddle, off I ride. I'll have my baby by my side. Tonight's the night I've waited for, my insides shaking to the core. We'll talk of nonsense, weather, too; about tomorrow...what we'll do. The moon will brightly light our way as I plan what I want to say. By nature's stream, we'll stop and rest, I'll pull my baby to my chest. While looking in her eyes of blue I'll tell her that...Read On
