The White Line

I am coming back to you.

It stretches on forever as it travels to and fro; it travels 'round the mountains where the glacier lilies grow.   It rambles down the backwoods through the hills and through the vales; it navigates the desert where the lone wolf sadly wails.   It commutes through the city streets and countryside as well; it cruises 'round the lakes and streams and through quaint little dells.   ...Read On


Following Hope III Final

He walked with purpose today as his heart began to race The sweat began to form on his forehead He rounded the corner and the cafe' was in sight He looked down at his watch to check the time She would be here in less than five minutes He took a seat facing away from the door He smelled that scent as she walked towards him Her hand briefly touching his shoulder as she passed He stood...Read On

Rowing Boat

Drawing us to where reeds sweep, and bowed willows gently wither weep

The sun ascended to its apex high Traversing dawn’s rich clementine sky Burning off the morning veil Of misty haze so thin and frail That it hung amid the old oak trees Motionless without a breeze Ethereal as a silken shroud And humid as diluted cloud That rolled in from the verdant shore To creep across the forest floor Drawing us to where reeds sweep And bowed willows gently wither weep...Read On


Do I still belong?

For those questioning where they fit...

    I don’t know what has changed But something has In the past few weeks, Because you promised You would always be there But when that was tested You were nowhere to be seen.   So now my heart Which was so full of love, Is doubtful and unsure As many questions Are left unanswered Leaving me wondering Exactly where I belong?        ...Read On


You Could Be That Girl

You could be that girl

  You could be that girl that Steals his heart You could be that girl that Makes him wanna settle down Or You could be that girl that Is his best friend You could be that girl that Is his little partner-in-crime You could be that girl with that rebel potential  A little bit of a bad girl or an angel  Or You could be that girl that He turns to when his life gets crazy And he...Read On

New galaxies were born tonight The angels sang on high All lovers took to bended knee New colors filled the sky The forest creatures stared in awe The birds were mute as stone The waves were frozen at their crest A weeping willow moaned Hand in hand we flew above The quiet earth below The buck who saw our shadows pass Bowed to honor his loved doe Verdant carpets spread 'neath our feet...Read On


Following Hope

As the wind blew the leaves and the branches swayed in the breeze He knew that he only had one chance at love He took a deep breathe and proceeded down the walk She monopolized his thoughts and found it hard to concentrate He missed deadlines and forgot important dates Why was she so much different than the others He knew this was his only chance at making a good impression There she...Read On


My love for you is true and sincere With scented flowers of hollyhocks As the soft winds blow With the pinion of my pen Encompassing a shadowing shrine For your everlasting beautiful divine On a stone's tablet I define While scribing in poetic tongue With the lips of my yum I toast the host you have brought As dusk pass upon the shawl  Of a dawning's awakening We will kiss a morning's dew As...Read On


See Me

It’s hard to move through the currents of a life Buffeted from one side or the other, no matter your choice Even harder when you face adversity others can’t see   My sense of me is heightened, here on the stage I pour my heart into this expression Unless you know my narrative, I appear uncaring   One observant, out of the corner of my eye, motions I dance for him, he who sees me I...Read On

First Love

A true story of my very first love - remembered with fondness

Let me say these things now, as I Throw these words down on this electronic canvas.  Words that are written in internet ink, and Words that have stayed in my head, Stagnating and idle, Clogging up my life, and my soul... For far too long. Words that I should have said when I was young, But these words did not come easy then. In my silent and unforgiving shyness  I could not utter those words...Read On


We Got Issues

We met around sunset on a Monday night, we exchanged numbers and the rest was up to us.

Under a star-filled night, Two strangers meet for the first time Not knowing what to expect. They begin talking Finding out each others' Deepest secrets, Worst fears. Crying together, Laughing together, Falling together, Hearts beating as one Their lips falling closer and closer. Hands shaking, knees weak, Butterflies in their bellies, Dancing around to the buzzing of the bees....Read On



Your eyes sparkle, backlit by love’s joy Full lips part, spreading into a warm smile. I walk toward you, arms and hands ready To hold and caress you once more. We embrace. On tiptoes, you snuggle into me. I inhale your familiar light fragrance, Golden hair pressed against my cheek. Pulling you close, I’m in heaven. It’s two years since we first stood here Nervous, on wobbly legs,...Read On


The Curve of My Back

An often missed erogenous zone blooms forth

  It only took a glance from your hypnotic eyes Your voice deep, in my ears, so mesmerizing The warm of your smile igniting my heart like flowing lava The dulcet caress of your sizzling, callused hand along The curve of my back   I hear your whispers in rustling leaves and the swirling wind Heaven is your breath that flows between your supple lips Hearts racing in unison,...Read On

Enamored by the tinker As chimes quell a rumination And the incense whisper Waftures of poetic adoration As the winds of my mind Scribble a soft mellow On a quilt of green Of our love's bailiwick Enamored by the tinker    ...Read On



I think we'll last

Fortune smiles on me.  I'm blessed.  Alone with my thoughts,  I peer at the image displayed  On my laptop; your smiling face  Calling to me from the glowing screen.   I study your features  For the thousandth time: Kind eyes that shine with inner radiance, Skin, creased from a lifetime of laughter. Lips that have whispered, "I love you,"  Then sealed the moment with a tender kiss. I love...Read On

Love Is Wonderful

When you're down  Everything is lost You wear that frown You feel double-crossed Your loved one is there They wipe away your tears When all you feel is despair They're with you for many years They comfort you in pain Make you laugh and smile They take away the strain Those other people are juvenile Other want to rain on your parade The love you share is just amazing It'll go on for...Read On

Deep Bend Willow

Penning your splendor with poetic ardor With a touch of a shadow's smile Kissing beneath a deep bend willow As the moon winks with an eclipse On a warranted token of our love As a picayune of locust fiddle A waltzing twiddle of our robust   As shards of stars blink   With a touch of crystal raining down    We dance on a luminous fescue crown   In the gardens of our sundown Kissing...Read On


"Without You, I Can Be Me"

You are dangerous and forever must remain an unrequited love...

When you entered my life I was lost Aimlessly wandering Confused, empty and afraid But from seemingly nowhere So effortlessly And oh so painlessly You filled me with your love I fell in love with you And you made love to me. You called to me And I could not resist You or your temptation For you did not hide from me  Who you truly were There was no dance of seduction It was plain to see The...Read On

Old Thirst

Each Other's Lifeline

My hand in yours We walk together Through life's doors Both our lives better Knowing we care In everything we do Together a unique pair I'm so glad I found you A bar out of the way Next to a jukebox Meeting you made my day It was about one o'clock I knew you were for me You were newly divorced A beer and a glass of Chablis A bit later there was intercourse I just knew you'd be my guy I...Read On


Chasing Blues

Rough fucking and dirty secrets.

You chase my blues away, along with the white fluffy clouds of self-doubt.   So positively and lovingly, I feel like I can’t live without. The sound of your voice, your vital presence and my heart bursting like I have no choice.   And then you drop me. No calls, no contact, leaving me to wonder where exactly I am at.   The power of a narcissist, another rocky patch. But...Read On

A Spell Of Caffeine

At a phantom of the professing clock While falling under a spell of caffeine With a silkiness of cream moistening my lips As the aroma wafture a new day rising Sipping the joe with an eagering smile As I contemplate your rationally From swooning eyes and morn wise  Given my dubious past of obscurity   And as my phobias take a hiatus From the crumbs of day old dread And the nether lands...Read On



All was lost, I was undone

A thousand poets could endless write and never find words to capture the sight of heaven in eyes of deepest blue, that I adore and inspiration drew. They beckoned me closer to the edge of love's unstable rocky ledge, where my fate was sealed with a single kiss as I quenched my lips in clinging bliss. A smile as warm as the summer sun and all was lost, I was undone. I am yours, my maiden...Read On


Just A Dream

Am I just a dream Will I fade away Like the fog in the morning sun Or am I a lasting dream For many nights to come How I want to be real Only for you Be more than a dream More than a foggy mist How I long to be real Real for you To make your wildest dreams Come true I'm sitting here quietly thinking How your sweet words have played their part Somehow I knew that they would When I...Read On


The Elephant on My Chest

It's all about forgiveness

There is an elephant on my chest, where my heart should be. It sits and presses itself heavily on to me.   It’s trunk occasionally reaches down and pulls at my stomach, snatching away my appetite.   Before the elephant landed with a thud, we laughed, loved and enjoyed life a little more than we should.   Then suddenly the elephant shifts to one side. It slowly packs up its trunk...Read On

Cheer With Me

A watershed of my mind came to me in thought Immersed in wonder as I felt your warm breath  As randomly your fingers touched the bristles My heart quelled a love true With an amorous briar of scent as my credo Fire on my grate's libido kindled desires As your kisses rained down a summer's sweet Like a cacao And when the fire ebbs a midnight tide Surfing winds of lust poetically inspired I...Read On
