How I Need Thee

Tell me, Am I to be compared to a flower  On a summers Morn. Laid down in the softness of grassy banks, My petals, slowly unfold As your stalk, grows strong and demanding. Glimpses of each other Across inches of space Accompanied by a hint of desperation, And a burning fire within. This feeling,  of unfettered lust, Falls on stony ground  Amidst the torturous numbness of separation. I want...Read On

Ocean Waves

From experience

Ocean waves Born of the wind Swelling in size Traveling hundreds, thousands of miles Living for days, weeks, longer At last casting upon a coast Dissolving in spray against a rock Or painting a portrait upon sand Their essence never gone It will exist forever But in a changed form As does our love  ...Read On

Interlude

The Magic Flute ... Illustrated by Lee Zimmerman

Her lips wrap around the instrument giving life The flow of the music from her flute is playing The notes are like the air she needs to breathe Her finger tips softly caressing the keys The melody it produce lingers in her skin The same blood flowing within her veins Her hair swaying as she plays the flute The music is giving life to her burning soul The pleasure of watching her plays the...Read On

To Speak Of Passion

I want to speak of passion and all of its untold edges,  the barely tangible ones  that touch like a summer mist, the ones that spring forth  to take us in a furious storm. But to speak in such a way where all sings of intimacy  and the deepest intensity,  I have to touch upon everything,  not just the fire in your eyes,  I am searching for what  will survive beyond the flames. How you...Read On

Everlasting Friendship

For a spiky haired kid who took a chance on a friend

I wish you could see what you mean to me Where we have gone and where we will be We were two souls connected in the night An email that started a friendship so right  Tears, laughter, and naughty things  Fun times, joys, and stories of ping's Hush Little One and Seduction by Slumber These things we write without encumber  Seeing through the chaos in my head Helping me see what needs to...Read On

From Alan

A poem for a Lost Friend

"Write what you know you think you feel, write just for yourself.  Write the way you learned from me, and write for everyone else.  Sometimes they will love it, most often they will not...  Worry about that later, but for now just give it your best shot.    Poetry's a puzzle and we find our only way  To try to say the things we often fail to really say...  If I have taught you...Read On

Amazing Sweet Grace

I had grasped my last straw And my eyelids closed I heard the cries of an angel As I passed on my way to Valhalla And it broke my heart For she had been in my dreams A lifetime it seems As I stepped from the escalator On the top floor of Shangri-La Many, many miles on high I lost all fear as my wife smiled My lover, my soul mate of sixty years As she kissed me with everything dear...Read On

Someday

Someday my Love.....

Someday my love..... You will look up From your screen Finally see me Realize what I mean   Someday my love....

You will finally see How very much I loved you How much you need me   Someday my love.... You will come to terms With how poorly you treated me...Read On

My Loving Addiction

How I love her.

I'm addicted to this feeling,  My need to have you near. Like a soothing warmth, it's in my heart, and it casts aside my fears. I'm enchanted by your smile,  and your sweet and tender eyes They keep the darkness from my soul  Even in the darkest night.  I'd be lying if I told you, I longed not for your touch, But it's not your scent or soft caress That my heart needs so much From the...Read On

To Love Again

The words  I love you Escaped his lips Without emotion. It was just an utterance Meant to capture And invade my heart, With thoughtless lies, False truths, And shattered promises. I should have known, As I danced in the shadows  That the reality he Offered was a dream, A nightmare actually  Leaving me Unable to trust, Unable to love, Unable to be  Comfortable within. Until I found you And I...Read On

Whatever Passes Through

Just the taste of your skin,  like steam rising from a raging river, it's a heart helplessly on fire, the sound of a star roaring  through a still night sky. Whatever passes through here, I can promise this, you have woven all  seasons into me. Your delicate fingers once drew  maps in all possible directions. The image of such a touch alone  is more immediate and visceral  than any poetry...Read On

Change Is Hard

Dedicated to those who helped me through this storm.

I'm starting to lose sight of all the things I changed for good, all those things I left behind are flooding back like I didn't think they could. I don't want to revert to the person I used to be, but it's hard to hold on when I have lost everything key everything that was worth fighting for, that meant so much A genuine smile will not my lips touch it's hard to laugh through tears that...Read On

A Soul's Fool Heart

Frittering not the tallow 'neath the fallen dusk As my prose fails to describe the silence of it all Shedding darkness of my soul's fool heart In a collection with my mortal perception With soothing touch and talc of heartfelt dust  Sweet as your breasts upon my chest With a brush of the feather I pen my sins As your lips touch my poetic immunity Drowing curses of yesterday's omens...Read On

Unconditional Love

A love like no other she had experienced...

She hid away from the world Protecting herself from pain  But life was passing her by.  But that was until she met him  Someone who dared to be different..  Strong in confidence, poise and charisma  Choosing to live by their own rules.  He made the time for her  Guiding Supporting  Protecting Generally just caring about her  His support giving her courage  Helping her become strong...Read On

Is it Better?

They say it is better to have loved, and lost, than to never have loved at all. Do our hearts have to choose?   It is better to have loved?   Loved the feeling of electricity from the first time our fingers laced Loved the taste of your lips when they melted against mine Fire in my eyes, as I looked into the lust and cherish in yours, the moment we became one Belonging to you,...Read On

First Contact

Longing for that first contact, first love, that I still seek to fulfill my lonely life.

My body aches Screaming inside Searching for that missing thing A human touch That feel of a woman's hand Touching my manly skin Contact from another Upon this lonely soul I've searched for so long In hope of finding someone Who'll look upon me With eyes of true sincerity Not see the disability That I hide with such shame Or the lack of self-confidence In my daily struggle to survive I...Read On

Forlorn Lover

When promises are made to be broken... A heart...

By the shore in the middle of the night, She always sits at the big rocks, Waiting for her lover to come,  Who promised to be there. By the shore in the middle of the night, She is always singing sad songs, That would make herself to tears, For the lover who never comes. By the shore in the middle of the night, She always looks up at the moon, Asking him of her heart's fears, For the...Read On

Moment's Interlude

With poetic encore and a moment's interlude I compose prose with sensual desire On green carpets of soft Fescue Before the dew and the haze of the sun   And as the symphony of musical sensuality Move my baton of spiritual host I feel your breath upon my script With a stanza of love like butterfly wings    Like a ballet on glass of a shadow's dance Across my inkwell of thoughts and recants...Read On

The Miles Between Us Are Just Numbers

Neither time, nor distance, nor anything can keep us apart because love is everything

The miles between us are just numbers, They are excuses to keep us apart The miles between us are just numbers, But what I want is your heart.   The land between us is rugged and far, I will travel though… travel to be in your clutch. The land between us is rugged and far, I will walk it my dear… walk it and feel your touch.   The sea between us flows and rolls violently, I...Read On

Shield On Her Heart

If all of us would only leave our hearts uncovered who knows what happiness and bliss we could find.

  She's kept a shield on her heart, for too many years, through too many nights, through too many tears.   There are too many times, when she wouldn't let go. Sometimes, it's a crime, when your heart tells you NO.   If she'd let me in, I'd heal the bruised heart, that was broken in two, to solemnly start, a new way of feeling, a new way to be, to muster her trust, and  to...Read On

Limerence

Whatever guided you and I first  seemed to be simple chemistry,  tiny atoms immediate and forever,  seizing one upon one another.  Our secrets helplessly spilled,  not every one of them at first,  we were too careful then  at what we could relinquish  even though we wished  to just give it all away.  It was as if a little more pain would  make the entire heart follow next.  And we...Read On

The Venetian Map

"...for she had eyes and chose me." ~ William Shakespeare

You'll sail through my blood,  the first time I've ever  been so entirely consumed,  an exotic element to you as  you pulled me away from monsters  As if the telling of those tales  spilled war's memory from me.  There will be no solidarity to me, love,  no origin without cracks or foreign blood  coating my restless blade.  But you come to me without pretension,  with ceaseless devotion...Read On

Clinquant

Clinquant: glittering as gold; glittering with tinsel; showily ornate   I see you from a distance, Standing by the cinquefoil With golden circlet upon your head.   Cleanse me with your clemency, And let me see your heart, As I see your glittering soul.   Let clarion sound, Hear the coloratura, Coalesce with me and let us coruscate together, Let our dalliance continue evermore.  ...Read On

I Wish I Never Met You

A silly, little poem by a silly, silly girl

I wish I'd never met you, I wish you weren't still here.  I wish I didn't have these thoughts, I wish you'd disappear. I try to toughen up, And pretend like I don't care. But the truth is, I still think of you, In my mind, you're always there. How do I go on like this?  Wondering like I do,  Do you think of me at all?  Do you miss me, as much as I miss you?  My body still reacts, In...Read On

Then There Were Two

When you finally get what you have been dreaming of...

I walk alone along The sandy moonlit shore Wishing, dreaming Longing for something more   The full moon Shines brightly above Almost mocking me Here without my love   Always so far Seemingly forever apart From the wonderful man Who holds my heart   Listening to the waves Crashing against the rocks below I wonder, will I ever Get the chance to know?   What it feels like To...Read On
