When You Weren't Here

Thinking of an online lover who wasn't signed on

It's been a few days now A busy time of year And I've missed you I signed on Hoping to say hello To catch up To smile To laugh Perhaps more? Passing a little time Reading some stories Thinking of our own Our first time The sharing Of secrets Shifting boundaries Over time New adventures That sometimes  Surprise us The comfort  Of sameness But each time  Still special  In...Read On

Your Rosebud Lips Wore Pink

A true love.

I spotted you across the room; your wide smile drew me in. I watched you for a short while, your face, your eyes, your grin. Your eyes sparkled in the dim light, your rosebud lips wore pink. Your hair danced when you looked my way I caught your eye, I winked. A wink is such a simple thing, yet made you notice me. If you would care to be my friend, I would grasp the...Read On

In the Eye of the Storm

Here you’ll find me, Waiting in the eye of the storm, Here you’ll find me, Waiting because that’s my norm. I hope you bring safety, To keep away the pain, I hope you bring safety, Because alone I can’t take the strain. Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m right, Maybe I’m wrong, Help me through the night. I beg you give love, Because I’m running low, I beg you give love, I can’t...Read On

Clinging

I find myself clinging onto you, Onto everything you are, Everything you were, Everything I miss. You have moved on, Yet my heart is stuck, And that it something, I cannot defeat. I gave everything I was to you, For you, In the hope of you, And now I am lost. So I cling to the memory, Of you, You I still love, Though you no longer love me. You let go of everything we were,...Read On

Salt Of My Spice

Dusk of the coming soon-moon And shadows of nearing dark, Give me comfort of beams In hollows of returning swallows Of my musty bookshop and reams. My soul untethered of bounds  And mind liberated from decisions, In verse my pen sails On paper of coming tomorrows And salt of my spice be.  Darkness I hark prose of tales Beneath candles of lit wick,  In reality I stand my...Read On

The Shattered Gem

Most pleasing to the eye and the soul. Your entry was like a swan, pearl-like  on a glimmering pond. Gliding your way into my heart as a friend and a jewel to be treasured. Polishing your luster so it sparkled with a purpose. For I knew that you were delicate and needed tender care. I was there. Time, time was never a worry as your worth was beyond measure on earthly scales. I...Read On

Sentinels

We're more than just a simple collection  of skin and synapses reacting to one another,  more than the blackness sweeping over  after a star's collapse. After a constellation enfolds,  you are the burst of light,  existing only in a space of seconds,  to cover me with your radiance  and the vapors lacing the still air. The beauty we make together may not stop  time's violent bloom...Read On

Falling Star

I am falling for a fallen star, That I watch burn through the night past me, A light so bright and enticing, That I cannot look away. A light like the sun, But not painful to the eyes, Years of love gone on, Years of watching over us. It is not every day you see a falling star, Nor every day you fall, Like a whole new dimension, Or compass-bearing. The enormity of this...Read On

Now in the Winter of My Life

Sometimes memories are all that is left...

Now, in the winter of my life, I look back over our years together  We have raised our children to adulthood We learned to communicate without words  A glance, a smile, a wink and holding hands  A soft touch on my shoulder or back Your lips on my warm cheek, or your fingers  Brushing back a stray lock of my hair  A quick pinch or pat on my derriere’ Our expectations and...Read On

Fortunately Forrest

Just a shadow I spread of myself, In Fortunately Forrest I stance, 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods. Casting but a nuance of me Under shade of the tree, Wisp of stirring breeze Laying kisses upon my lips. In soft silence, whispering prose, Daydreams I suppose, In time, my mind flight's, Gifts of love I compose. 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods, In arabesque the...Read On

None Other Love

The poet describes his love for his lady fair, a lady truly beyond compare

There is no other love, my love, that could to you compare, Such is your beauty beyond price, so delicate and rare. For you are of women nonpareil, your looks so sweet and fair That I would gladly give my all, and worldly wealth forswear To gaze once more upon your face, and stroke your silken hair. I have travelled far and wide, crossed many a storm tossed sea, And sojourned long...Read On

Navigating Layers

You can be inked on my skin,  marked on my heart, tattoos and unseen etchings with our names, all our words said in the other's ear Like a secret that knew precisely where to tear open the other,  whispers traveling along breezes I can feel you in,  the currents coursing through this vessel. Whether I become transparent to you in time,  or become like towering walls covered in dark...Read On

Intervention

There are times I do not know where I stand, There are other times that I do, But when I find myself around the beauty that is you, I find that I need to be given a helping hand. I love that I love you, But I hate that I love you too, I find myself constricted, And wish your words were listed. You confuse me but captivate me, Throw me and hold me, Keep me and control my mind all day,...Read On

Come My Love

The poet invites his lover to fly away with him to celestial fields where they can play eternally.

Come dearest heart and take my hand, So shall we skip down to the strand, And there my darling we will sing, Of love eternal murmuring. As by sweet breezes gently fanned, Our footprints printing in the sand, Two hearts together will take wing, United by a wedding ring. Such lovers there have never been, Nor such devotion ever seen, From ocean depths unto the sky Love...Read On

Snow-angels

Days sometimes hit us, Specially as the snow covers the ground. The world dark and frozen, People huddling together to stay warm, Looking forward to celebrating A time of light in all the darkness. Once in a while, On days like that, She is struck by the memories. Things from her past, both good and bad, But most of all, Remembering those loved ones no longer here. When...Read On

Imperfect Perfection

Love is rarely perfect.

Love weaves a web of loss through my core as I covet you. Perpetual days of torment, unfinished thoughts of you taunt my past and future. Silent cries ride the back of an impossible avowal, always only a wish. My heart wails in your absence, I miss you incurably, I will wait patiently for you. You are not mine, yet I can't let go. My sorrow is a waterfall. A torrent, a flood,...Read On

Forbidden Love

My heart aches I cannot believe it But I think I have fallen for you I know it cannot be That I should not feel this way Yet every time I take a breath You are on my mind We are so far apart Yet so close It feels as if I tried hard enough I could reach out and touch you These feelings that I feel I am sure are forbidden Still they exist I cannot hide them They burn within...Read On

Butterfly Wings

We must learn to crawl Before we can walk Day dreaming someday We could finally fly Life is unpredictable Hearts easily are broken The dream of flying At times almost forgotten We can become lost Simply numbing the pain Hiding in our own cocoon Afraid to feel the hurt If we are willing to try again To let ourselves feel love Despite the risk of failure Then anything is possible ...Read On

Mountain Dreaming

Together always, no matter how far apart...

Sitting on the veranda feeling alone,  missing her love, who is away for work. Longing for the moment he will return. She leans back, closing her eyes and starts thinking about a mountain ranch  filled with horses and a flowing creek which leads into a swimming hole. "Come on, let's go in," she hears him say, as he begins to strip down to his togs.  Turning, she looks in his eyes as she...Read On

Holiday Wishes

A wish to be with you this holiday,  A sleigh ride in the crisp air. Sweet kisses in this magical sleigh, The wind blowing at our hair. Warm cocoa shared it's very hot, To be with you and hold you tight. The warmth of the drink hits the spot, I love being with you tonight. We walk along the town square, Looking at holiday windows. Children squeezing their teddy bears, The temperature is...Read On

Adoration Sent

Distance can't keep us apart

Passion created upon a keyboard, Edited, amended, honed to perfection, Patient construction dripping with sex, Oozing lust, declaring desire. Craving your words I wait, burning, Enslaved by promises, yearning for more, Emotions ignited by voiceless whispers, Body consumed with smouldering need. The distance between us has no meaning, Continents, time-zones, kilometres, miles,...Read On

The Collide

Our worlds collided with your words, Gravity and force pulling me into you.  I had never read something so beautiful, So deep, piercing my soul. You blew me away with your talent, Then became part of my heart. Our worlds collided, If only for awhile. I never expected you, Never knowing I would love you so deeply. I loved and desired every part of you, Inside and out. ...Read On

Write a love song

You went away

On the radio each day Since you went away The songs are about you Just you, And they leave me blue. Those tunes and words We once shared and loved Now haunt me Only me, Because you’re free. After all the sweet lines The wind and strings The times we held hands Beguiled by the bands, Why leave for different lands? Like a bird on the wing You left to do your thing...Read On

Mystique

How could I describe you, With your ethereal mystique? Words could not do justice, Or manage to compete. Your form is of wondrous beauty, The like which no words can describe, Your voice sounds like an angel, But just a whisper from above. Your soul dances with mine, To a slow and rhythm-less tune, Courting and embracing, Losing track of time. Your love comes in waves, Ebb...Read On

Unanchored

Drifting without course Unanchored and unmoored Caught up in his wanton breeze I let go and drop the oars I boldly face the breeze Give in and to feel release Fall into his tide Reckless, without heed The shimmer of the sun Casts diamonds on the sea I dip my toe to see the ripple And because it pleases he His sparkling diamonds call to me To fall into his boundless deep...Read On

Gulfs

I'll always wonder if you can feel me through the air, through the floating whispers in winter's coldest night winds  when I graze the soft skin of your cheek as you sleep,  the smile curving lips as you dream will be me. Silently reaching and pulling the blanket  over your warm tired frame,  smoothing away locks of hair  that have fallen over your face,  eyes opening to find mine. Asking...Read On

If You Loved Me...

"If you loved me" I should run to your beckon and call. "If you loved me" the words filled my soul with desire, "If you loved me" the words turns my body to fire! "If you loved me" - your words were just selfish demands. ...Read On
