The road untravelled

Sometimes I look down the road untravelled, The one I didn’t pick, That day I started this path I am on. There are times I wonder If I made the right choice, Would the other road be less difficult, Be wider, smoother, have fewer curves? Perhaps it would. I opted for the unknown, A path I knew would hold its challenges, Be hard to walk at times, Steep hills to climb, Bumps to avoid,...Read On

Trade Wind's Ballast

Te quiero pase lo que pase

In the distant caravel upon a sail The trade wind's ballast, As silence of dawn spawns, Footprints on my shadow.  I give thee alms of far reaching prose, On parchment of my soul, Your beauty be-told. And like the combs of the bees, Succulent sweet you bring me, As soft breezes sow your pollen of love, The trade wind's ballast. Te quiero pase lo que pase. (I love...Read On

How Does One Let Go?

How does one let go of her eternity.

How does one cry so many tears? How does one hurt so bad? How does one feel so empty? How does one live without one's soul? How does one move on from the one she has never been able to move on from? How does one close her eyes to sleep when in her dreams she only goes to him? How does one let the other half of her soul go? How does one turn from her heart? How does one breathe without...Read On

To Have and to Hold

How do I compare you to the warm summer's heat? Your skin clings to mine as it moulds into me The mid-summer night's storms send shivers through my body  As you hold me close to you in your strong arms Holding me in a loving embrace. Your warmth spreads through my body like a burning inferno As you trace your warm hands over my glowing face. You've never shown such fiery thirst, But...Read On

And She Breathes

The world continues to spin Even when you ache for peace Nothing is static or still Tightening your grip is frivolous Time does not stop passing So curled under the covers She finds her own calm And she breathes Needing just a moment to exhale To let go of all the pretenses A moment to just be free But the brain can't cease to think Nor can the heart cease to feel So head on her pillow...Read On

Until The End

If ever there was a time for you to fight for us it's now We've lost the light that burned so bright somehow The sparks are dying out Strangers in the night-time, strangers in the day So many things to talk about But there's nothing to really say You were my best friend I thought we'd be together until the end We used to talk for hours about our favourite things You'd tell me pretty...Read On

Nothing

My soul will always search for you.

I woke today, it was dark and grey, the sky matched my heart. Broken now and torn apart, nothing left. I sit on my bed, my hands on my head, face down staring at the ground, I see nothing. I tore it down and wrecked it all, now I lay in a ball, I hear nothing. Time stands still, my world at an end, caused by my sin, I feel nothing. Emptiness, covered in dust left to dwell, I scream and...Read On

Heart's Desire

Afraid of the unknown Dancing at twilight Red moon above Lonely, alone Entering danger Quiet peace gone Giggles exciting Darkening clouds Lightening flashes Ocean line high Getting up Fear no more Heart's desire Freedom...Read On

The Moth To Your Flame

The look that I notice, When I’m stroking your hair, That moment of wisdom, You give to my ear. The boy that was hurt, But grew into the man, The rage that you feel, That I now understand. The touch of your hand, As it brushes my skin, The tremble you give me, Comes deep from within. The darkness that takes you, Quiet tears that you cry, I wipe them away, But inside I...Read On

Sunshine And Leather

Souls always searching one another.

Upon my porch I stand, coffee in hand, I look out over the land. Flowers in bloom, I look up at the full moon, stars shining bright, what a beautiful sight. I breathe in deep, his scent hits me causing a smile, I knew it all the while. Sunshine and leather, the scent gives me such pleasure. Through time he has traveled seeking my heart, we will never part. Closing my eyes, memories alive...Read On

The Pencil

Something so insignificant Can create too much Can create Can destroy Can write stories Can draw masterpieces Can spark new conversations: Love connections; Hate filled letters... Can turn thoughts into something tangible, Hopes and Dreams Become real! But, In an instant It can be all erased In a flash! So many different things Can disappear....Read On

Little Acre Composed

The woos of still in silence, awakening thoughts As I reflect on the hollowness of my life, The millstone of my mind grinding poetic prose As you rest in a little acre composed.  Shedding the cider of my tears,  Genuflecting at the Midnight Mass, And the chorus raining downs halos,  As you rest in a little acre composed.  God's going to give me a searchlight, To lay a wreath...Read On

Lost Love

For the one I lived for.....

My mind is restless it is Longing to be with you You came like a cool breeze, left like a storm Withering my soul and my form I am searching for you day and night I am fighting this battle with all my might Beguiled by your charm Ignorant of your adultered love I loved you like there is no tomorrow Now left heart broken, in deep sorrow I know life is not the same anymore ...Read On

A Once Empty Whole

With her I've become whole

Nature abhors a vacuum Yet this whole remained unfilled Sapping the strength I muster Testing the endurance of my will A need long left unanswered Reassurance continually sought Persistent emptiness prevailed In spite of all I had wrought A certain caring unattended In unintentional neglect In opposition of the need Love hoped it could correct One heart found that heals Calming turbulent...Read On

Piece by Piece

Sad moods overwhelm me sometimes, The ache of the loneliness I feel, Covered up for my friends, If only they knew. I have an emptiness inside you see, Always present, always there, A wound so deep it can’t be healed, But I hide it well with a laugh on my lips. I see couples holding hands, Kissing as I wander past, I smile to myself but cry inside, Why can’t I have that? ...Read On

Wrapped Up In You

The precious joining of two hearts…

I'm all wrapped up in you babe As we're lying side-by-side Our arms and legs entangled There's nowhere left to hide Tender words are being spoken As our hands pet every curve And our hearts are pounding wildly Our passion's touching every nerve It's here alone that I’m at peace When the two of us are one All the world just drifts away And every angst becomes undone When our...Read On

The Loneliness of Solitude

The solitude of one man's desire to be with a woman for the first time!

Sound of silence all around me Tears upon the fringes of my sanity So alone on this path I walk Searching for a partner to ease my soul Lost in wilderness In hope of finding someone To hold me, caress me, play with me To ease these emotions of sadness Tears that fall from these crying eyes Stain the cheeks upon my face Imperfection is my gift in this world Ugliness to some, freak to others ...Read On

The Great Asterisk

It wasn't but a lyrical, When I had but a thought unwritten, By the tides of the moon, I embraced you, Yet I still loomed, the great asterisk. A verse, a stanza, anything admitting, A comma of true, Wishing you to stay the course, Of this poet, a dark choice. When I was but ink in the well of the quill, Something for me to eye before I inked, I was but a lowly noun, a...Read On

He's Not Mine

That time of morn again, The time when I wake up, Just for a second I think he’s next to me, And then I remember, He’s with his wife. He’s with her, Waking up next to her, Her skin warming his, His lips kissing her good morning, Touching her when he should be touching me. That time of day again, The time when I have my lunch, The stolen calls he makes, Telling me he loves me, ...Read On

Destiny

Have you met your Destiny?

Life goes 'round in a circle Never quite complete Then one magical day You find the one you were destined to meet Fate brings you together Two halves of a whole You'd always been alone Now forward you both go Two hearts to beat as one Two minds in perfect sync When one would possibly fall The other pulls them from the brink Your names are now written Upon each others souls...Read On

On The Cusp

I'm on the cusp of whatever you really are, the truest center, the barest particle. I've been close before, but never like this, where all my secrets are yours and each one disrobes me, leaves me naked beyond clothes just carelessly fluttering to the floor. You stay beyond the fleeting, the mystery of contact after searching past skin, the heart's often intangible realm. I...Read On

Cease To Be

Today I cease to be.

What happens when you cease to be, fade away into the grey. The world goes dark, you lose your spark. Your dreams fade away, into the dark they stay. Your heart stops beating, the words repeating. Your body shakes, your soul aches, your world quakes. Your breathing quickens as you feel your soul slipping. The shattering sound as you hit the ground. Upon your knees you cry, feeling like you...Read On

Laurel

God of light Whose ego shone Boasting of his strength God of love Who with his bow Plots now his revenge Which power greater Gold or lead? Desire or to despise? Arrows do their targets find Pierced hearts must now comply One chases while the other shuns Entreat; retreat; pursue Matched equally Her fragile lead Holds between the two Yet passion’s heat cannot be quelled Light’s...Read On

Soft, So Soft

Soft, so soft the skin on your cheek, with the down of desire so silky smooth to the touch. I lightly stroke you with the tenderness of a lover transforming your tears to smiles, tracing down your face from each bedewed eyelid to your lips, tasting the salinity of loss. I fulfill. I am the one to bring you forth and bear you up into the heights of passion, with a forgetfulness of...Read On

Vibrations

I feel them begin in my spine traveling up Sometimes black and sometimes brightly hued Days cold, my soul safely shriveled in its cup I need you more than ever to keep me glued Feet planted, purple painted toes dug into the earth I feel, hear the wind blow through trees bleak, so cold My mind often like a ship out at sea, it just needs a berth Some say I was born this way, a soul that...Read On

The Death Of A Friendship

A friendship dies.

The death of a friendship is an ugly thing, you feel its cruel sting. The spot they held feels empty and cold, missing are stories untold. The times you shared, the way you cared, memories lost, all just tossed. The death of a friendship is hard to swallow, it makes you want to scream and holler. Everything undone, as you watch the setting sun. Promises made, promises broke, the...Read On

I Love You

I love you for the man that you are and for all that I have yet to see, I love your precious heart that loves me the deepest I've ever known. The heart that loved me when others left me cold, Those who left and never looked back without the slightest thought. You saw my beauty and my flaws as well, Kissed them and held me and comforted my broken heart, We forged a friendship dipped in...Read On

Word Songs

When the quill sings my word songs, And the heavens bless me, night long... Whispers of ghost I have toast righteously As the verses define me in slightly undress. With raw nakedness of my poetry, I wish you my fond adieu, And may you walk in my shoe, Feeling steps of raw emotion. ...Read On

Love Will Come For You

A hurt and lonely woman hopes for love to return...

Our hearts feel your pain, though we’ve not ever met Their corrosive words, try their best to beset Their duplicitous ways, easily get you down Know less effort’s needed, to smile than to frown Don’t give up my friend, don’t let yourself cower Too many turn sweet, into undeserved sour You will love again, so be patient and wait It’ll come by surprise, leave open your gate Your words...Read On

Only You

One day you'll tell me softly, Tell me the rest of your dreams. What kind of world is waiting At the end of this dark path. Will the voiceless voices Disappear when your love appears? Laughing when your love Shines upon my wounds, And continues its endless journey. I know of the headway, Yet I still have a reason To keep on going, As I embrace you in my arms. When I let you go, Something...Read On
