Sing It If You Want To

maybe something beautiful in this earth won't let me die in a gutter called winter and summer will enslave me with this terrifying magic making my skin itch like it's half electricity and half not there and I'm sorry to make you say your name again but I just can't  hear you darling now that the guitars are melting and then of course there's the damp music of that...Read On

Defying Gravity

Feeling a softness of your breath Enamored by a tell-tale touch Using a willow stick I pen prose With a velocity of ink's tempo Defying gravity As my mind follows footsteps Of lost loves left behind Where the winding river flows Over shells and stones Defying gravity   Crossing over to forever sounder On pebbles made of pearls Shedding light on my philosophy Enamored by a...Read On


He had no fear of the coming apocalypse choir  Feeling the gossamer touch of an angel's blush As she whispered in staccato bronzing his fire  Sweet two-lips of eternal desire  In origins of a dew dawn  ...Read On

He Saw Scrimshaw

He saw scrimshaw of poetic designs   With words defining his mind's kind   As the tides washed upon the sands Giving promise of a new day's find As the gods of seven gave a week To reach the pentacle that he seek   A siren of the sea kissed his lips   And with her love that he would keep   He saw scrimshaw of poetic designs   With words defining his mind's kind        ...Read On



Why am I staring at my phone?  Endlessly checking my email and searching for other signs?  Inexorably drawn together,  our bodies, hearts, and our minds.  Am I really making myself this crazy, when you're right there in my heart?  Two people who never met, our souls bound together but our bodies so far apart.  I can't seem to get you out of my mind.  And I'm more than happy to dance with...Read On


Ineffable Beauty

I want to fall in love With you Blinded And when I do I want to see you Your image, your essence, your beauty Everywhere I look. I want to fall in love With you Deafened Only hearing my heartbeat As it races Craving your embrace Awestruck by your reality. I want to fall in love With you The thoughts inside your head The scary places Where no one else ventures They are you They...Read On



Flesh yearns to find its voice first before recognizing unguarded need, willing itself to learn the language, but your body told stories before me. And although men and women have staked their unique claims on you, have cautiously circled one another as bloodthirsty conquerers. A part of you always belongs to me. It may be something as faint  as whispers among the storm, your scent...Read On


Me and You

Love is a treasure

We are experiencing this journey together Going from being one to being an us We are learning new things everyday Like what each other likes and dislikes We are enjoying being together without being in a rush Taking our time being a couple Dreaming of a future together Sharing our hopes and dreams Sharing our fears and desires Discovering what turns us on ...Read On


Brain Betrayal

I will never understand or heed the voices bouncing around and ricochetting trying to lead Damaged connections and tissue warp any sense I ever have of me Self-worth not the only issue Fighting with myself at night Wanting all and nothing I can never find the light Value others see in me Perhaps they are blind And cannot clearly see I've just been cast In a life I never chose Each time...Read On



Dry lips I kneel still Your presence is all around. Intoxicating me. Slithers. The drop slithers down my forehead. Earthquake. My skin turns crimson Painted by your palms. Rough brush strokes. One. Two. Three. Do you want more? Slithers. My chin is the drop's precipice. To fall or to follow? You belong to me. Eyes. They speak my willing yes. Callous hands on my body. I stay. I am here....Read On



My view on love.

There are many forms of love. Love of family, friends,   And the one it desires. Love is overwhelming, Cunning, smart, manipulative, Difficult to understand, Frustrating, and maddening. It can calm you, or harm you. Make you crazy, and hurt. Make you feel human. For love does not discriminate, Does not look at race, Sex, religion, or ethnicity. You can’t chase love, For love...Read On


Sleeping into tomorrow's dawn, timeworn But now gray about the brows, I interface   Before I cross yonder to another place On a path to green pastures and longevity As a I enter through the golden gate With you as my guide and eternal bride We share God's sweet ambrosia   As the red clay of Georgia leads us home  Born upon-a-time when I scowled at spirits Sleeping into tomorrow's...Read On


Say it Again

Loving the fact knowing that you love me

Lying here in my bed, Next to my lover. Whilst our legs get intertwined, With our arms around each other  Whilst we hug and embrace. We had just made love. Combing my fingers, Through your soft and silky hair. Whilst I softly kisses you On you’re forehead. Hearing you whisper something, On your breath. Not quite hearing  What you had just said, Wanting you to say it again. You say it...Read On


All I Need To Know

All I need to know

In this fast paced world All I need to know is  That rain or shine  You love me  Life gets so busy  The distance can be so hard  All I need to know is  At the end of the day you are waiting for me and  We can get all wrapped up together  To discuss our day  All I need to know is  At night  I get to fall asleep against your chest  After we share a few minutes of passion  All I...Read On


The Wolf

Dark nights of oblivion We shared them in silence We lived them in the shadow. Nothing prepared us. You sank your teeth in my flesh Feasted upon my weakness I heard you whispering, breathing on my skin and I couldn't say no. But in the comforting warmth of the night, oh such a forgiving mother, everything is different. The moon does not violate things with her light. Not like the sun,...Read On


We Have All the Time In the World

For my own lover

We have all the time in the world It is not denial But acceptance of a higher truth My eyes look upon you and know We will go on No matter what they say It is the only way to live our lives  To the fullest With each day that passes To live without seeing an end To love without crying again To laugh without doubting  And win We have all the time in the world    ...Read On

Sugar Runs

Orgasms are like an apotheosis with glee As if a phantom in disguise as you dream Like dryads of a full moon hidden in trees While stars twinkle in a kaleidoscope sky Occasionally rung like wind chimes hung As the sweetness of sugar runs  ...Read On


Even though sometimes you make me mad I'll still always love you Even though you make me feel sad I'm still happy I said I do Life is not always a bowl of cherries But love is always in the background Our love is extraordinary Sometimes I just don't want you around Life happens and things don't go our way We're lucky that there's always tomorrow A chance for a new and brighter day A new day...Read On


The Halloween Party

Our first meeting Cara...(thank you Marylyn wherever you are)

To think I nearly didn’t go To that party where we met The thought of us not meeting That’s a thought I must forget   Who knew on that spooky night I would meet my life long mate Something must have made me go I think they call it fate   I went with that girl Marylyn She called me on the phone Wanted me to go with her But I ended up alone   I came over and I spoke to you You...Read On


Your Presence

Your love has freed me from the past, It has opened my heart. It shines like the sun Pours over me like rain  Rages within me like a storm It refreshes me again and again  Your love means everything  ...Read On


The Things I Wish

The things I wish, Number only a few, A happy future, For me and for you.   That I could wake up One dark grey morn, And all light I need, Situated at my side.   To feel against me, The touch of your hand, Love, you don't know How much that is in demand.   The powerful caress, Of hands not my own, Writhing and pulling, Eliciting a moan.   But the things I wish, Not soon...Read On

The Calico Fields

The hummingbirds word beautiful memories As my mind returns to the calico fields of cotton Where the river flows soft rhythm of treasuries Befitting my wife of the Shenandoah  As I recite the Lord's Prayer From the oaken wood of my rocking chair   With a Tierra befitting her Halo   We share a spiritual sip of Heaven Hill Kissing with a sweetness of the julep As my mind returns to...Read On


Snow drift

Dreams of Aspen and fresh falling powder cuddling by the fire all melt like so much errant snow You know the seasons will change yet you're always surprised when hearts do Better not to rely on the weather because Mother Nature can be unforgiving Dress in layers against the elements and protect against the chill Because it's hard to recover from frostbite and Summer is too far away  ...Read On

Twisted tongue

Today, I decided I’m done. Twisting my hips away From your once loving tongue in anguish. My words, terse over breakfast Gentle nudges and sighs, won’t last. I ask it straight. Why? You’ve known me Forever. My me-ness? My mind and persona, direct as a pact. Tell me! You, the guilty one here flinched, Why has your tongue taken a life force of grit? Watching you flush; fork hovering Mouth...Read On

Breath Of Catcher's Net

As I sigh a breath of the catcher's net Of golden butterflies befitting a crown Giving wings to spiritual dreams As your lips manifest on my chest When the Tierra of your halo glows With a teardrop of dawn's soul I pray the Lord give me sleep Entwined in love of our keep As I sigh a breath of the catcher's net  At rest in metamorphosis  ...Read On



This was the very first poem I wrote way back in the eighties

The tears I cry fall from eyes that one time had forgotten how to weep how to sigh        from love misbegotten Freely flowing remembering pain feeling once again easily now like dew thew fall after mournings reign My heart is hurt this final time an ending to a game it's over now I've lost again A player never more but the bittersweet memory how to cry reopens a rusted door...Read On



What will I do without you?

I hear your name above the wind The wind that blows around me, so cold I never thought that I'd be out here all alone I never thought that you'd leave We once had it all but things fell to the ground I am standing out here, so alone and afraid Do you miss me? Do you need me? I am lost without you Life is cruel when you fall so hard in love and then see it all end I wrap my arms...Read On


She spoke to me

She spoke to me long before I heard her voice She spoke to me Her heart poured out volumes And not by choice And I saw her pain But it couldn't hide The beauty and sensitivity Of the soul inside She spoke to me My heart heard her plea She spoke to me My mind embraced the possibility Dreams of holding her close My arms provide comfort and protection Together at last Our hearts have made...Read On


On Monday Night - Part I

First kiss, first bliss...

Flaming skies change to evening, hot and heavy and damp. Lazily yielding as sunlight dies, Waking is the same as dreaming to a genie in her lamp. Dripping in faux humanity her exalted demon was queen. Yet, in her nudity, she is but a woman, not a fiend, and subject to fluidity. Warm, wet, shadows and the sound of a busy city wander through open windows, greeted with enmity. At first...Read On


Rima Oris

It's no wonder that the bow is almost shaped as a heart, or a pair of lips so taut from the ache in anticipation. This should be obvious by now, our skin animated from contact, a silent contract that survives past what bodies remember. I'll touch you and that lives in a moment I can't fully grasp, I can only recount certain frames. You'll pour through the words,  touching each one as...Read On
