Calliope Tree

Like a carousel turning counter clockwise on an axis of fond memories,  the effervescence of you  beneath wind chimes that sing and calliope tree. In silence your kisses blow enchanting my sins, like sherry stirring my emotions  of soft breath from a decanter and scent of yesterday's wine. Now in caress of carousel rhymes  and sing-a-long times of sugaring kisses, we slide upon...Read On

The Sun Dies Away

Setting in the west, the sun dies away. It rose once upon a time, once when we were young. It rose and our faces turned toward it, seeking the soothing rays of satisfaction. Grasping, clinging together, we sought the ways of light, the ways of edification and sweet adoration. We sought each other, two hands bound into one,  founding a friendship and a simple centering  of understanding,...Read On

Uncoupled

Uncoupled from expectation, I believe I can be everything that you deserve, be the shapes in your eyes where the light strikes to illuminate them as vibrant and potent as the torches that hang in our night sky. Just slow this down, I'm only winded from the chase, not from when our hands join and our steps are harmonious taps along the road. The sound is like concentrated rainfall,...Read On

Self-Confidence

Girl, Darling, My dear friend. Please don't do this. This, whatever you are doing, Just stop. You don't need a man to define you, Much less, a man to make you strong. You don't need a man to tell you, Just how beautiful, you really are. And you especially, Don't need a man, to tell you how sexy you are. Fuck that. Instead, walk to your mirror, And say "I am...Read On

Places Near

As Chopin is to nocturnes your melodies are to me,  with ringing chandeliers and whisperings in my ear of candles and lark  and far off places near. Under spell of romantic interludes  and angels gliding in mid air, wearing tiaras of love and ambrosia kisses.  you my Hosanna beneath moonlight  as Chopin tickles the keys....Read On

I Was Always Strong

No. Nothing is wrong. Go away. Go away. Please...don't stay. Is it time to get up. Is it that time again. To get up. It's dark inside. Is it time to get up. It's time for me to think. I need to think. I need to let my memories bathe me, and rush over me, until I feel nothing. Nothing is wrong,  and I feel nothing, because it's not my time to care anymore. It doesn't matter. It isn't...Read On

Life’s Highway

True friendships will surely transcend.

Roughened pathways and trails we travel. Trials and tribulations, we try to unravel. Souls touched, hearts associated. Paths crossed, memories dictated. Connections made along life's trail. Sometimes continue, sometimes fail. Hearts touching, sometimes at high cost. True friendships made, are never lost. Highways traveled, be they short or long. Leave...Read On

Did You?

Did you my love, ever really feel the need? The pull of me... Across your aching belief That love, pure love is not what we make But the depth, the hunger, that everlasting ache Promises you made never meant to fulfil The taste of the end so bitter so still So I ask you today this hour this night Did you ever see a future when you held me so tight? You whispered my name as you came...Read On

Tick-Tock

Hearing tick of tocks on winter's snow like a blanket of silk the sins blow,  as my whispering pen scribes  green eyes and rising tides of my thirst. More ticks of tock my words sow on thin ice of my darkening scrolls,  reaching out with a kiss I behold  words of spiritual thine. Laying my tongue upon swooned flesh as the scythe shears the winds,  on the toll of my farewell jesters...Read On

Out of Place

The insecurities in me make me feel...

Confused, unknowing what to do. where do I go? Chocolate box, drown in it? It too can kill you. Breath... Scream... Yes I am alive, but why? The situation before me, my heart uncannily vulnerable, wounded, bleeding... Feeling alienated, a weirdo on my own, on my knees crying. Breath... Scream.. Yes I am alive, but why? Efforts, accomplishments, lost loves. Do I even matter?...Read On

I'm a believer

You only find that person who can love the real you once and it has nothing to do with age

Wake up, blink sleep out of your eyes, look around and see, it is a whole new day and I am here to stay. The sun is up, blazing burning bright, It fades the darkness if only for today. You only get one chance, one moment to make a dream last, So take it, grasp it between your hands, take a breath, close your eyes, take a leap. What does it hurt to say okay, give love a fair chance, we...Read On

Other Side Of Good-Night

It is not my alone that sings melancholia  on the other side of good-night in the parley on my own get-togethers, for in words I verse silently discerning  of my angel lost in nirvana.   On wings of dust and puffed candles  they alit and kiss me in darkening grotto,  as my obelisk quills my sins  the yens of thirsting quests. Oh! what praise I shrill composing ambiguous  betwixt the...Read On

Harem

The king, his harem Riding into the desert Forever searching. Looking high and low Searching for more gold, foolish Women to behold. They, in hungry greed, Can never be satisfied Riding all night, hard. Hoofbeats pounding sand, Lotus scent filling the air Draped in rarest silks. Lovers kiss and tell, Madness barks at the moon and Their gold gleams brightly. My...Read On

Screen love

Internet love is real, and as such, can become painful

Modern day, Electronics, full days. Love, who has time? We all do. Distance becomes no obstacle, as a soft click of the board, and you are within reach of anyone that you connect with. It is an era in which you fall through a screen and your heart becomes addicted to spend hours waiting for them to connect... a smile as you see the name flash on. You suffer because you know you cannot...Read On

In the eye of the storm

She lives in the eye of the storm, Trying to keep things together As the world around Is torn into pieces, The forces of nature Causing havoc in their path. She can do little but breathe, Trying not to panic, Keep her emotions in check. The small things in her control She has tried to do, Hoping the damage stays manageable. There is no telling If the storm will move on Or hit...Read On

Was'ents Aware

In my memories I reached back into the archives of my dreams, as if I had lived the essence of you  and the rising tides... eventfully they do. All the while with smiles you cast upon the meadows down below, in tall shadows of our evermore with gentle kisses coming my sway, as clover dance and blow. And I was'ents aware of butterfly sails on wings of colors they do tell and...Read On

This Never-Ending Cycle

One look was all it took Before I felt myself fall again. It happens all the time, This endless cycle. I fall, I break, I heal. You come, you smile, Whisper to me your sweet poisonous words. I get sucked in, and the cycle starts again. How you have this hold over me, I'll never understand. This addiction, The need to be near you, The need to hear your voice, To feel...Read On

Blank Page

Where will my story go?

Sitting staring at the pages my mind at ease, but empty. The past written down, The present... me here. My quill upon the clean page, A smile upon my face, The breeze, soft and crisp. It is the cool of spring. These words are dedicated to those people who were in the early chapters, companions of my life.   Good, bad, teachers, angels, but eventually executioners in my past. ...Read On

Trembling Bridges

Into misty swirling drifts of doubting  creep the feeble fears that feed regrets remorselessly until the dawning. Droplets of lovelorn dread bedew your flesh while the shadows cover your vision of what might have been but is no more. Is there no pathway to regaining your bearings and rebuilding  the mansion of memorable embraces once found but now unredeemed  since the shade crept in. ...Read On

On Wind Songs

On wind songs I pray love so true as the leaves fly and skitter,  in meadows of the fall  and winter near after. On wind songs sigh of green eyes  and the fires of December we touch nuzzles,  sweeping kisses on our flesh. On wind songs of absolutions my glorious winged shadow,  hallowed be your words of our sacred vows. On wind songs carousel  and the calliope sings, as our...Read On

Peace

With you I know peace

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

Dragonflies In The Light

A Poem For A Dear Friend

You say you're gonna go. Can this really be? I understand your heartbreak, but please! Take a moment just to breathe. Such a loving soul with a caring heart; I can't bear us growing apart. He caused the pain, that's put you in such a rut; I love you more than every Pizza Hut. Please don't go, don't break, don't leave. You are beautiful, Lucky, to me. Please don't let this be the end;...Read On

Missed opportunity

Has she lost her everything....

She arrives home logs into her computer slowly her smile turns into a frown. Her love has been trying to get her leaving so many messages as she keeps reading She feels her eyes well with tears as the messages, get sadder, she feels his breaking heart. If only she had not overslept and been in such a rush to get to her appointment. Or had phone credit she could have stopped all this...Read On

Sleep

Sleep my love, Close your tired eyes and Rest your head upon my chest. Close your eyes as I keep you safe, From harm, I softly sing into your ear. You are my heart and my loving angel, I promise to keep you out of harm's way. In me you've found a forever home, You won't ever have to leave. Sleep my love, Never leave these arms for too long. I vow to take care of you so tenderly. You're...Read On

Framework

I once told told you how a touch could flutter through time, become a seed, an explosion of stars to paint your universe with light. If I can give that to you, it's worth burning through all I am to know that fire isn't really the end, that you will still curl around the ashes until I form anew. In the framework of singed flesh you've carved your language, seared the most sacred...Read On

Fools Mortals Be

What fools mortals be when dreaming fantasies and copulating as if play things on strings,  perpetually in own animation  as life's sensuality has passed them by. What fallacies their lives bring sings  when in thoughts they lie beneath the truth,  as I scribe of soft thighs and green eyes  on pages of dark lore. What silhouettes fall on the wall  half shadows before the calls, ...Read On

Too Little, Too Late

Tendering offerings of worthless lovelorn flora simply to soothe your own heart won't get you to the end of your journey to forgiveness.  Trappings of sympathy without the tea of human kindness are like petals  of blossoms  wafting away in the wind. Your loss my friend, so decide that the character of your personality must change. You must grow and perhaps become the person worthy...Read On

On The Mantle

It wasn't but a breath as far as dandelions puff beneath the moon of the equinox, yesterday's kiss and blessings we wed  as we dance in happenstance. And on the mantel of our vows gazing into the midnight hours,  of coming tomorrows embracing our faith. Would you rhyme with me a little melody of quite hours and wild flowers scent on nature's quilt of white linen,  in meadows of...Read On

letting go

Will always love you from a distance

I was yours, I felt safe I trusted I was wrong. Love songs played, Sweet words were spoken, A heart was opened, And shattered in the end. Time in a dream, You gifted me, Abruptly woke me, In a long cold night. This heart is in pain, As I am a burden, A weight drowning you, So I will let go. Once I feel well, I will run away, A time for reflection Is now here… I am not like them, I...Read On

Still

Time, the healer of wounds.

The other day I heard, What once was "our" song,  As it played on the radio. This time though, it was different, The sadness and pain were gone, I didn't immediately think of you. Halfway through the song, The memories came, And I paused for a minute. To remember the way things were, The chats, the teasing, the fun we had,  And a smile tickled my lips. As the last note played, And the...Read On
