Love Poems


Removing the mask

She wasn’t looking, Not expecting anything, When she found him, Or perhaps he found her? Maybe it was meant to be, Maybe a mere coincidence, Whichever, it changed everything. He broke down the walls Around her fragile heart, Tearing apart pain left by others, Erasing the power Of old words spoken, Leaving them meaningless, Replacing them with his own. He simply wanted her, ...Read On


Just Close My Eyes

Just close my eyes and she’s here with me now, Just close my eyes and I’m with her somehow. Washed into my life like a wave rolls to shore, Her softness enchanting, touched deep in my core. The beauty she held was without any limit, She gathered me up and surrounded me in it. Safe in her arms I learned she was mine, Her warmth and her wisdom, her gift over time. Slowly I loved her,...Read On


Shaded Blue


You have so many shades of blue I never really know what to do When the blues have gotten to you What shade of blue Has today brought you? Is there anything that I can do? Is there anything I can say? To make todays shade Of blue go away? Who am I anyway? Just a girl you let stay, While waiting around for her all day? It may seem unfair You allow me to care Yet you're fully aware You...Read On



One day after You had left My mind still black And blue I stood beneath the shower spray Erasing thoughts of you Circling now Just waiting To try to slip back in Block it Stop it Make it drown Again Again Again The stall is thick With shampoo steam Fragrant cloying heat My stomach twists With fresh disgust I pull in air to breathe The tile is warm I feel the grout Roughness on my back...Read On



You found me when I was down and out Slowly seducing me until I couldn't do without You seemed to offer something better Your touch as soft as a downy feather I loved to feel the rush through my veins Even as I ignored the warnings from my brain But as each day passed, to get my kicks You always demanded a bigger fix We always used to laugh and giggle While I ignored that sometimes...Read On


Lost In A Daydream

It's easy to get lost in a daydream of you and I. Imagine just the two of us in an exotic setting, wearing just a sarong around our hips. The sun empowering our bodies and the nature around us. The ocean and island sounds that send harmony to our ears. As amazing as it might be, My favorite fantasy doesn't need a beach or a backdrop. All that I need is you. Just you and me and...Read On


Your One

He is unaware but he has my heart, A pulsing, singing piece that is his, Pounding out how much I feel, To my ears only I guess. I watch from a distance as he goes through pain, My arms want him there to hold, Why can’t people see he is so much more, But then again, why can’t he. To make him feel something, to know there is love, If only he’d turn my way, I can be strong for a man...Read On


Like Pebbles on a Beach

I feel your touch upon my skin A breath escapes my lips A sigh of pure pleasure Seizes your attention, as we Are lost within our kiss. Like pebbles, touching, on a beach. Your fingers find my weak spot  The hairs on my neck, stand proud With tenderness and love I feel your tongue caress, and Over sensitive skin, it trickles down. Like water, over pebbles, doth flow. ...Read On


A Better Sung 'Morrow

Gomen'nasai (I'm sorry)

In my visionary of passing I see,  Like a sparrow with a looking-glass. From atop a crest of a splendid alp,  A pantomime of a paper moon, In shallow waters of dreams, I rest. Beneath afar away pagoda, A path to eternal quest, With shadows in my tea, As light of my eyes swallow. In nearness I feel your caress, Sweet petals of my swoon, A pantomime of a paper moon. And...Read On


A Sad Existence

Sign the papers!

Twelve years you've lived with my friend However, we're still legally married This is ongoing and not the end This is a lot to be carried This broke me to have a break down While you and your whore play house You still always come around You're technically my spouse You and your slut never go away You still help to pay our bills You still cheat and you stray I think this gives you...Read On


First Kiss

Lost inside of the endless daydreams Evocative interludes Throughout the day Taunting each of my senses.  The look in your eyes says, "Follow Me". Your touch leaves no room for resistance I hear your heartbeat Palpations heavy.  Matched only by intense heavy breaths Your heart matches mine in sound Our passion is the same Your scent envelopes me and lingers long after you...Read On


Hide Away

It hit me in the night, I left every door open and still nothing, I’m such a bloody fool, To think he might, but no. I will remove myself from more harm, Cover my feelings and hide, It is the way to be safe, I’ve learned, No more, ever, ever, ever, never ever. Thought I was safe in my secret world, But it crept up on me somehow, Didn’t even notice til it was too late, And now it...Read On



As the summer draws near, the air thick with memory, I'm drawn back to you. The naked lines of your flesh, glistening from hot rain, sticky sweet lips hush me. As we pulled off the road, close to where you stay but never seem to live, fireflies swirled around the darkness gathered in us. Pulled so close to me, we emit our own kind of light, glows from trembling galaxies, your eyes were...Read On

Treasured Dreams

I don't fear the night As it comes writhing in And embraces me  In its welcoming arms.  The whisper of darkness Anchors my dreams  When they're soaring Through the opaque Mist of my mind. Treasured memories Edge into my soul, Fueling dormant desires Aching to be set free again. I fear the light And its insistent sunshine As it kisses my body awake With warm strokes of a new day,  And I...Read On



How could you?

You're a lying son of a gun You said I was the one I see you're having fun We're absolutely done How could you do that With my best friend You're a fucking rat This is truly the end I caught you together You both deceived me I was under the weather Now I'm absolutely free A liar and a slut You two should be happy We were in a bit of a rut This is making me unhappy She bought me...Read On


I Miss You Crazy

Do you ever miss me too?

Do you ever miss me  while you're busy with your life?  Do you wonder if I miss you? I do and My Heart Breaks. Do you ever need me  in the middle of the night  when you can't sleep?  I'd hold you,  stroke your hair  until you closed your eyes.  Watch your sleeping face and  softly kiss your lips.  Then My Heart Would Break. Do you ever think of me,  want me by your side? If I could ...Read On


It Could Be Sweeter

I'll keep your touch like a secret sewn just beneath the skin, so when you run away, I don't have to be quite ready to go let you go. And I wish it could be sweeter, the taste of your kiss and breathing you in, I wish it didn't hurt us to be closer than this. I was too passive to chase and claim with the same raw force you could so easily sweep me away with, the force that others...Read On

Your Final Gamble

The ranked outsider when we met, How did I earn your backing? Not believing myself worth the bet, My confidence too lacking. But you knew it was inside of me, That something others had missed. As they were all discounting me, I made your final list. My confidence still jaded, How could I be your one? With you my self-doubts faded, It was together that I won. I became the man you thought...Read On


Struggling with the loss of love...

I held her in my arms On that January day She took her last breath Then she was taken away. I watched her eyes dim The light went out fast Her body went limp Now all’s in the past. It’s been over a year I’m still angry at life She was my best friend My beloved wife. It’s a flawed fucking system Ensures pain will exist So cruel and so callous Just a name on a list. I can’t believe in God...Read On



Whatever you are,  however I flicker in you,  passions shivering down  to the barest root. The same animal broke us from each other,  one you've promised may come to help us  move openly together, fold into one forever. Raw joy streamed through our entirety,  gooselfesh resting still to naked eyes,  but even the most patient lens  doesn't glass everything or touch  some tiny contours to...Read On


Wisteria Drifting Down

Wisteria petals lately drifting down,  The past renews, the city draws me back To haunts, remembrance, loving aches resolved, And yet she still invades my fretful thoughts, A laugh that echoes off the stuccoed walls To fall among the steps we left behind. Tripping cobbled streets on skipping feet, That shared a space, embracing, dancing softly  As a treat, a joyous, sweet delight. ...Read On


Just Dare

Ever been scared to open your heart, To leap into that unknown place, Not sure to give your love away, To look in the mirror, a doubt on your face. Ever been addicted to a fainthearted man, To give your all with feelings of hope, Not ready to lose what you desperately need, To stay despite not being able to cope. Ever been hurt so badly your soul is scarred, To promise there won’t be...Read On


Until The Grass, Settles At Last.

...sorrow of painful cries.

While clutching a broach to my chest, skirmishing with the Johnny Rebs at the battle of Shenandoah Valley, near the Blue Ridge mountains... 1864. As tall as I could, I stood among fallen comrades, in meadows of shadow woods, tasting the blood being shed and the sorrow of painful cries. The burst of cannon rolled like thunder beneath a noonday summer, with the breeze of a...Read On


The Raspberry Farmer

You were a man Of average height Light green eyes And thinning hair Light green eyes And bitten nails She was slight Her flowered dress And knitted sweater Soft curled hair So ladylike She was your second choice She knew She never was, would be the one Life, not death would part you In some ways Far more cruel Leaving her With the pretty little house Worth $4 million Or so In those...Read On


Shared emotions with the moon

I watch the moon through the window, and the moon looks down and sees me, I raise my hand and with it my glass, showing to him my whisky. His face has always looked so sad, its scarred surface portraying,  a loneliness I understand, our joy for life delaying. He used to be part of our earth, before we were separated,  remembering the comfort of being whole, not fractured and...Read On


When Is It Time

When is it time to walk away, when he ignores you for days? When is it time to guard your heart, when he would rather talk to someone else? When is it time to give up,  when he treats you like you're nothing? When is it time to take things at face value,  when he steadily walks away from you? I wish I had the answers to my questions,  I wish you'd see how this back and forth...Read On


Gazing Hell

To gaze upon hell as your deliverance.

Heaven was sold as a beautiful place;  filled with the golden light serene.  I travelled there with the fullness of grace;  ready for places I was yet to have seen. Heaven was there as a shining testament; to all I had done and all I had known.  Heaven was there as a glowing reminder;  of all things that I rejected once grown. I was never a dangerous sort;  heaven was made for girls like...Read On

That Something

There’s something about your face  That makes me want to laugh  In a kind of mean-spirited way--  Maybe the freckles half-obscuring your skin  Or the fluffy uni-brow  Perhaps also the distinct crook in your nose  They make me want to giggle and poke at you  Like a child fascinated by something ‘different’  I don’t know why, but I want to laugh  When I see your face. There’s...Read On


She who?

It never fails...

Why does it always have to be That other she instead of me? Or anyone really Why's it gotta be she She is not nice She is not mean She is the past Our future is unseen She's not your Queen. You take the blame At every false claim You played the game And changed your name And now you know It will never be the same. But you try. Why? You try, fail, cry, And I want to know why! I...Read On



We seemed to be words and skin, just seeking passage, some part of you may never return to me. It could have been no other way, our roaring need, this incandescent edge. Something opens in you when longing grips, clenches around so tight, I can only answer the call in shivers. Even with the knowledge that I cannot be touched the same afterwards. To see you glow so bright as you...Read On
