Love Poems


The Dance

The dance

The dance is a slow one  A country melody playing in the background  No need to rush  Enjoy the dance  Touching softly Kissing lightly  Learning as you go  Step by step  Slow and steady  Holding on tight to your special one  No looking back in the past  No fear  The dance is only the beginning of  A beautiful journey ...Read On

Kickapoo Chorus

As the fallows gave into the trees And whispers of wind howled A shroud of the moon fell a dark siesta As the owls winked a covenant Of my awakening with a somber hoot In due course as I ride a crooked voice So aptly refrained in oaken woods  Swooning you an opus as fireflies rain down A chandelier as if coach lights feigning near In quaint sonata as my lips praise your bosom And as I feel...Read On


What Is Love?

What is the mystery called joy?  A question I've often pondered,  During the long hours of the night.  Too oft in my melancholy Joy seems to be beyond my reach,  A mirage that fades into dust  Just as I think I can grasp it.  So life becomes a denial  Of all that I so vainly seek,  Leaving me alone in the dark,  Clutching at straws, and each false dawn  Bringing me nought but bitter tears. ...Read On


12 Red Roses

You are perfect just like a red rose

Roses are red, Violets are blue How many red roses Shall I get This Valentine’s Day. A single red rose, It was love at first sight From the first moment  That I laid my eyes on you. Two single red roses, This goes to show How madly and deeply  In love I am with you. Three single red roses, Is the absolutely perfect  Way to say those, Three little words “I love you” Four single red roses,...Read On

Halo Of Wintergreen

I never heard the rain of shadow fall As if pollen of snow in Autumn called On the pane of my mind's sorrows As you touched my lips with a smile With a wee hint of melancholy As we danced a waltz of love Before the crecendo kiss On the pain of my mind's sorrows As darkness turns to tomorrows And the violets shed tears Anointing your halo of wintergreen Before the furrows freeze ...Read On


The light of your eyes

Each encounter with you is like love of itself, Always glorious, unexpected, and totally unprecedented.   As I walk towards you, there is no light for my path. Save that which burns in your heart, and shines through your eyes. They calll me, guide me, captivate me. I am drawn to you Mesmerized, the light of your eyes  dancing within me,  in time with the primordial rythym of...Read On


Up on the Moor

  Amidst the battalions of wind turbines marching across the moors. I saw my love,  Her hair blowing in the wind, As wild as her heart is passionate. The moors are cold as she searches for her Heathcliff. When she sees him, She runs and skips towards her love  At one with the rugged beauty. We come together  Coats flung on the ground  Bodies stripped,  warmed by the heat of the other’s...Read On


Dancing In Exquisite Sweet Togetherness

Eyes dancing bright with the pure fire of inner light We meet and combine in our journey to the stars,  In the soft velvety darkness of the long night,  And unite in exquisite sweet togetherness. Limbs and bodies dancing in intricate patterns,  We ride upon crashing waves of divine rapture,  In the ineffable joy of mutual passion,  And play among the pastures of a bright new world. ...Read On


This Kiss

Just a kiss started it all.

A kiss A touch Leading to a magical place.   Enjoying the journey of Discovering what sets the passion on fire. Getting all tangled up together  On this journey together is so much sweeter Than ever we expected.  Just think A little kiss started it all.  ...Read On

Be My Valentine

Meeting your soulmate

Just thought that I would, Take a moment and write This very special poem, For that special someone in my life. Looking back it was only just a year ago, Sitting in the pub minding our own business  Not knowing that just around the corner That we would bump into one another  Total strangers that hadn’t even met.

Several months had quickly gone past Since I had heard whispers calling my name And I had written them off as stressfulness   Due to my wife's unexpected passing     For she had been in the path of an influenza That was taking lives, and she became weaken And gave up her mortality for a slab of a stone Among other rocks in a field where she now rest And as the winds were howling...Read On


The Sweetest Thing

I'm surrounded by you You're all the noises in the world - The torrential rain The gentle breeze The crack of thunder And the butterfly's wing   I know you And how you know me Every hitching breath Every moan and sigh Every different way you cry   When I take you Everything ceases In those moments Only we two exist - My heart the drum beat Yours the flutter of the solo ...Read On


The Pennance

I turned my key in the door There she was on the floor My vision of beauty  Doing her duty Her naked form  A wonder to adorn Her sin, neglect  She knows to expect My intense consternation  Some pain and pleasure, a heady concoction Her penance was paid Absolution was made  The rebel was tamed  Without being maimed  The look in my eyes  Carried my disguise  I have nothing but love  For...Read On

How many ways do you touch me ?

You nurture within me

You nurture in me:   The song of a lover The vision of a poet The inquisitive questions of a child  A heart for a tin man  Courage for a lion A new mind for a scarecrow You have planted within me: Courage, so that I can speak my deepest thoughts Love, how to keep my heart safe, so that I can  boldly tell you how I feel You have awoken my mind, so I can tell you, who you are  But most...Read On


What’s In A Dream?

What’s in a dream? Should I only dream of you at night,  Or, can I dream of you during my day? For,  you fill my mind with goodness, love, laughter and joy My thoughts are also of you unclothed  Lying on the sheepskin rug in front of the fire  Waiting to make love with me  Perfection in your naked frame  I watch the glint in your eye The smile on your lips  Your legs parting A bead of...Read On


Almost Unknowable

You don't need to say it all yet, tell me what you find there now. When I sharply inhale your name, fold it deep into the lungs, the heart's unique signature, until the letters are a chant growing far beyond itself. With skin as soft as moonlight,  bones beneath rearranging, rising along the smooth iliac crest,  pulse singing against the clavicles.  Tell me what it means now.  To be...Read On


Yours Always

The pleasure of knowing you

Everyone needs love to pick them up, I rejoice at your tender and gentle strength. In moments of darkness, I ask, “Who am I, that you should care in the way that you do?” Then, I realise that I am purpose made for the pleasure of knowing you. The way your mind melds with mine, My heart has become your home, The way you fit within my arms and against my body. The more I see, The more I...Read On

Follow That Booty

The wiggle of her walk is hard to resist.

I’m sorry. I apologize for staring. But I couldn’t help myself. Your butt looks so nice in those jeans. I’ve been walking some distance behind you. My eyes cannot tear themselves away. From the motion of your hips. The smoothness of their sway. Gives the perfect bounce to each cheek. I just can’t look away. I know it’s not polite to stare. But you have a nice derriere. I don’t...Read On


Nurture (sonnet 2)

Your care is what I need

You, nurture within me,  The song of a lover,  The vision of a poet  You quicken within me, the gift of humour  So that I can brighten tarnished times    Be with me as I live out my life  As I dare to be authentic,  in a world of fake news Alive, trembling with possibilities, of hopes and dreams   As we sing of our love,  Let us rejoice in the splendour of our passions Fill our hearts with...Read On

Shattered glasses in my hands I close my fingers around them, embracing the pain.  Welcoming the scraps in my veins. They are my memories of you.  Memories of silver tears, cried in silence In that dark corner.  Quiet. Sigh soundless. Quiet.  Spike wires of you around my flesh.  Every little inch is an image I would wish to leave behind.  Yet... Each and every of them sink  their little...Read On

Falls A Leaf

Resting in my arms the dawning of an angel At the whispering zephyr of a tree  Bowing the boughs of a cello oak While misting September falls a leaf In your eyes of eventide evermore sleep  As the moon's halo cries      ...Read On
