Love Poems



I've always wanted to know how to reach you, to forget each divide within us that is a dark ocean populated with dangerous new species, depths we may not know how to chart alone. I don't want to stay on the surface anymore, where rippling reflections are torn by tides colliding and forgetting how to merge, where waves pull us apart before a sound can leave our lips. I've been to blame all...Read On

True Love

Show the world you love yourself.

It all begins with you. Love cannot be taught, It should be felt from within. True love is one sided Selfish if you will, Beginning with self love. Adoring ones self is fine, Not appalling. Cherishing this fact Is the key. Lips speak volumes. Souls cast auras. Mirrors reflect images. Hearts emanate feelings. Eyes reveal souls. Hearts bleed When bruised or broken. Scarring...Read On



This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Lost where ice-bright stars are flung, Where roiling incense spices night, Where wraiths are mist around the throat, ' Tis here where tears burn. In velvet silence humming, Sigh of gentle rumbling smile That cross'd the gulf between us, stretch'd, Returns now, leaves me cold. Ache of inner,...Read On


The Kiss

Eyes lock. Rapid breathing. Hearts racing. Palms are sweaty. Fire ignites us. Parted lips. You lean in. I lean in. Ready, so ready. Our lips touch. My heart flutters. Light and sweet. Passionate and needed. You hold me. I hold you. Desperately we hold each other. We don't let go. We want the moment to last forever. As we become one....Read On


Oh My Soul

In quiet contemplation Finding the wisdom to finally rejoice, Oh my soul. Admitting the waste, Reviving the love that never left, Responding with celebration When hearing of the happiness Offered. Once shared,  Simple satisfaction and delight, It was right, But foolishly allowed to melt away. Once said it lives, Exists deep inside, Oh my soul. That will never die, Cannot leave as long as...Read On

It should be peace I’m thinking of While watching her sleep All the way to the end Of everything, Her breath rising and falling, Air whispering to the silence As if no one were there to hear. But life is marching through Her still body, And I wonder if her dreams Are full of stormy things Like the secrets hearts Only tell other hearts Or that...Read On


Beds Of Oak

In the seasons of harrowing depart Many winters and pale moons I confess Hungering sweetness of your touch As cold lips trace my standing wick Six feet under with a stone door In our decent of clay 'Neath mulch we are parted Alone in twin beds of oak With brass handles And sealed with a kiss In the seasons of harrowing depart...Read On


Days, Weeks and Months

The relationship between lovers can sometimes have deep secrets

I sit in the darkness alone and lonely  I don’t miss you like I should I’ve known what was coming  That someone new was in your life  For days, weeks and months It was obvious that you had  Someone else to love and warm your bed  The hugs were absent  The kisses dwindled  The sex had completely ceased You no longer touched me softly  Or held me in your arms tightly  You...Read On



Hand upon hand. Hot breath on my neck. I shiver, knowing what will happen next. I try to speak. Nothing comes out. I want to kiss you. You hold back. Anticipation is killing me. Gazes lock. Lips part. We move closer. Closer. Closer. Our lips melt. Tounges touch. Lips travel. travel. travel. I gasp. I try to pull away. Not wanting to give in. I close...Read On


This is not my beautiful house

Its not really like I had planned to change,Time really just moves on and so does our heart.

Bittersweet memories they fill this two story house bittersweet tears oh we wanted everything It seems we have it now, all that is missing is us you and I Laughter and love time is moving on it is sometimes faster than we like You are getting older and so am I My heart has made a change Your heart remains the same you say This house is beautiful everything I ever dreamed of but something...Read On


Just a man?

She speaks of him Like he lit the sun, As if he shines Like all the stars on the sky. His voice velvet to her ears, Words spoken Going straight to her heart. It seems like He is the centre of the world, Like he affects her As the moon does the tides. Maybe he is just a man, But he lights the warmth in her, The twinkle in her eyes. His voice brings her calm, Fills her with joy....Read On


He Released Me From My Cage

for my cruel, devastating, amazing Daddy

Well played, tamer of lionesses  Every deception so obvious from out here But I lived and loved every lie, back when I was under the spell You turned the light on, and I can see all the wires Just because I know how the magic is made Doesn't stop it being real magic You can turn the lights out again if you like I'll believe in it still, I promise You trained me to be the digital to...Read On


Centipede Shoes

Lazy hours breezes blow Of soft winds whisper As hummingbirds hover In warmth of the sun  The rabbits tipping hats Half sleep in my daydreams Of tresses caressing my sleep Filling my life with merriment Visions of you in my wink At lay in wild-wood stems And petals of gems  Composing with my pen With your smile I wile  Beneath the oaken trees And fawns in fun The touch of...Read On



I am, but just a person...

So much pain. The darkness that looms over you Threatens to bury your entire world. I want to be your light. I am, but just a person Simply just a passerby... But your pain, I do clearly see And I do clearly feel I know it hurts And my tears do fall, For the pain that you feel. I want to be your light. Your screams, I do hear. My heart wrenches in pain, I know I...Read On

Take Me

Take me now To a place I have never been before. Show me the way. The way to your heart. Lead me. I will follow. Take my fears away. Take my curiousity away. Take my doubts away. You are the one. The one that I want. Find me. Search me. Take me....Read On


A Window To Your Heart

I wish that I could climb into your heart if just for one day I wish I could know you the way you know me What I would give to just have one day just a kiss I wish I could live inside your heart and make you feel complete If I could hold your hand and look into your eyes then you would know that everything I said was true and that the moment we met everything changed I want to live in your...Read On


Hints And Flashes

Time moves and unfolds behind your eyes,  I see myself when those fragile colored orbs begin to blossom and constrict  before you pull away from me. If I am to be nothing more than  a bright flash across your sky,  hold on to that split second  where I am pure energy. Where I make the above an intricate patchwork  of electric veins singeing the oxygen,  strobing across the land and...Read On

The Romantic Heart

“I was made and meant to look for you and wait for you and become yours forever.” ~ Robert Browning

Yearning for my soul’s twin Waiting for like to find like I sit very still Letting incompatible souls Rush past me in haste Patience is not a virtue As it almost drives one crazy I stop my fretting Remembering it will be Worth the wait The feeling of someone Missing in my heart and arms Is like phantom pains Knowing it will pass When the void is filled Seeking the Right One Where...Read On



She wears a mask to hide what she feels inside A smile on her face whether she is happy or sad She knows it's no use, He knows her very well For He is the one who holds the key, the key to her soul He knows her needs, wants and desires He knows her dreams, nightmares and fears He knows she craves structure and a place in His life She wants to know she will be His forever...Read On


In Flight

Paitently awaiting at the gate

Touch in flight Crazily drive the interstate United is late Patiently awaiting at the gate Catching a glimpse Dare hesitate Sultry legs Make me ache Gently sheer draped Mind escapes What lies beneath Tongue longs to taste She makes me wait Awaited kiss In my midst Our lips touch Pure bliss Deep breaths Tongues twist Lost in this So missed Smell of lust Seducing touch Trails on your...Read On



The drought has lasted for so long, this mist relieves the dread, as odors rise  to lift our spirits smelling the cleansing rain. Aspirations lost for so long, she let them drift away, inhaling perfumed hope that comes with the rain washing love's angst away. Both citywide and countryside relax,  as soft drops of future growth drip gently down  upon all uplifted faces  raised...Read On



Sometimes she wishes for snow, A pure, soft blanket, Millions of beautiful flakes To fall and hide the ugliness, Cover up the hurt, The scars and pain she carries. A clean, white surface, Nothing seen, What was there, gone. A moment to breathe, To forget, Feel a quiet peace freeze all. But sooner or later, The snow will melt, The ugly reappears, The dark still as evident. ...Read On


The Fort

The safe haven of a kitten.

I'm alone, in my fort. The tears streaming down. Built to be a shelter, for me alone. I let him in, though my heart breaks. My mind wants logic, my heart wants protection. My body, defies it all. It is his and his alone. He knows, this Knight of mine. He takes control of his possessions. My parts are in turmoil, an internal battle. He comes unarmed, so one may think. ...Read On

Beautiful Grief

For once I’m wishing for snow, That this dull, grey sky Would send down its soft revenge So I could hear these thoughts of you In the kind of peace that sifts over us Like angels shedding their beautiful grief. Yet there are no angels here but us, And the biggest sadnesses of all Are the ones that make our hearts swell Beyond the size of our bodies. We keep...Read On

Love redeemed

The heart forlorn, merciless  Tender desires ravaged by time, dispirited  Yet in solitude a glimmer of hope, glinting  Held wretched in a sad melody Time’s passing, meaningless  A dream beheld in despair, sorrowful  Ascending into dejection, melancholy  The future pensively dreadful A spirit disconsolate, regretful  Cherished memories withering, vanishing  Their decaying images...Read On


A Way To Forget

Together, over the years, half a lifetime, half a life, our life,  together. She was first among equals, the best woman, the answer to all I had dreamed of in my time. The sparkling gem set in the gold setting of womanhood. A work of feminine art and  of the incarnation of kindliness, a kindred spirit, in one incomparable soul. She was. The past lives on in memories, but not as...Read On



What a beauty love can be...

To be given love Is to experience the most beautiful, The most fought, And the most precious of all things. To experience love  Is to know the true meaning of living, The true meaning of beauty, The true meaning of happiness, The true meaning of fear and pain. To know what is most precious,  Is to love,  And be loved. To know how painful and scary It is to lose something...Read On



Tomorrow never ends when I'm with you, Tomorrow never loses its thrill, The day to come holds my hopes and dreams for us, The future keeps us going through it all. Tomorrow never fades from my conscious, Tomorrow drives us on through today's pain, The world lets us discover its eternal secrets, As we run along hand in hand. Tomorrow is only taken when we're dragged apart, ...Read On


My Old Friend Pain

Welcome back my old friend pain I forgot how you demand my attention  Nothing compares to the way you feel The paralyzing strength of your grip  For in your absence my old friend I find myself forgetting the dance we do Tonight you make your presence known As I grip the covers and beg for relief To live a life in pain is no way to be but escaping you seems impossible because even on...Read On
