Verses Tossed

When the frost is on the verses tossed, In disregard of other woes, Like fractured doilies on broken limbs cry As moaning sun set and crimson moon crest. There I scribe of ever-sheen green eyes, Absolute in my elocution queues, When the wind in its arabesque rise Beneath the crescendo posing prose. With garland kisses lying upon your chest,   When the frost is on the...Read On


A Sailor's Siren

The sea calms my barren soul not a single light shines at this silent hour waiting for my sailor upon the rocky shore the same waves which took to him my plea a message in a bottle, in it my heart and love Daily I await for his return at the old pier for the man who brought back my light Our last kiss with a fearful sigh I gave waving a handkerchief to the wind When the sailor for...Read On


A Love Rekindled

A poem dedicated to someone special

You are like a songbird, chirping its song in the morning sun. I heard your call, and it lead me to you. You broke down the barriers, Smashed the wall that surrounded my broken heart. A heart surrounded in a wall of ice by queens so hurtful. Paining me with words and promises, lies and deceit. Now, the beat of my heart thumps once more, Breaking free from these chains around it. My eyes...Read On


Good Morning

Each morning with you is a treasure

Soft music plays, Starting new days. Slowly open eyes, Each dawn a surprise. Stretching like a cat, No linger time. Drat. Still, I smile to my core, It is you I adore. I turn to see your face, Each curve of yours I trace, Admire your soft smooth skin, Need you ere the day begins. Gently caress along your hip, Soft kiss on your sleeping lips. With just one view, you fill my heart, I see...Read On



Bourbon scented pumice voice Breath and whispers  Beckoning Glass of amber Melting ice Misted liquid Lightening Varnished table Leather booth Dimming lights Surrounding me Molded ceiling Lacquered white Crystal fixtures Sparkling Rough blue denim Sex of hands Connected minds Enlivening Burn of liquor On our tongues Desires bared Kissing me Mercury eyes Crescent moon November...Read On


Her rock

Sometimes she wants to scream and shout, Cry out her frustrations to the world, Questioning why she got stuck With a body so broken, Having to struggle every day of her life, Not to give into the pain, Endless cramps and agony, The bane of her existence. She tries to stay strong, Rarely letting on how hard she fights Just to get through the day. Most of the time she can push...Read On


Moody Monday

Sing me blue, sing me true, When all is gray and new mown lay, Marigolds going to make it shine. Spoon-feed me love On moody Monday. Like flowing silk, milk of honey, Lips of sweet glowing flowers, On your face a blushing rush, As smiles of your kisses touch my soul. Whisking me away, effervescent showers, When all is gray and new mown lay, As raindrops fall a bow of harmony, ...Read On


Shattered glass

Restless and reeling, shaken and stirred, My heart it is bleeding, my tears undeterred.  So silly, so flighty, irresponsible too. Yet so real, and so valid, so wrapped up in you.  Who does this I wonder? Who falls in two weeks, For your whisper, your murmur, your kiss on both cheeks? You banged on my heart with suede words and soft feathers, And I responded with shy, unreal dreams of forever....Read On


Quietly watching

She watches as he sleeps, His face so at peace, An innocence only found When all thoughts are turned off, No worries, no concerns, Only rest and stillness. His breath deep and even, She gently runs a hand Across his rugged cheek, Ever so softly, Not to wake him, But needing to touch. A part of her longs to wake him, Feel his lips meet hers, His caress across her naked skin, ...Read On


My dreams

I am a dreamer

In your arms I will sleep soundly My life at times can be... put on pause to allow my soul to heal to allow my dreams to resurface and believe in love once more to open my heart to the promise My head on your shoulder I close my eyes and see where my desires lay they search for a true love that is more than an illusion that's a lasting feeling that inundates all my heart...Read On



Release me from your hold over me!

Silence is all I hear since you've been gone. No one to hold my hand, to wrap me up in their arms, That warm embrace of comfort, everlasting friendship. No one to catch those teardrops that fall from these watery eyes, Splashing onto the cold, hard floor beneath my feet. No smile to wake up to and greet me with lips so soft and tender, Nothing but the bedsheets at my side to grasp...Read On

Paris X

I undressed you with my eyes And we made love above the Rue Cremieux Your lips tasting of wine and cheese Fingertips trailing down your arm Feet never touching the ground Your hand capturing mine Before I was lost on the autumn breeze And again in the shadow of the Bataclan I remember your laugh and the joy in your eyes Mirrors capturing the star washed sky And the...Read On


A Kindred Spirit

They meet by happy chance, as life confers, And promptly comprehend deep certainty.  Fate's singular congruency occurs,  And both are gladdened by sweet destiny. Time passes as they open up their hearts, Send interlocking dreams and hopes to share. It matters not how separate their parts, All words and actions prove how much they care. It's understood that life is but a quest, Creating hope...Read On


The Valley Note Revisited

A continuation of a recent one

Someone asked me to tell the rest of this story, I can only give away the segments that remain. Some were scribbled over too many times with bleeding ink, some may have been burned without me one autumn evening. I know that some of them flew off into the night as I drove away, away to my small apartment while you stayed in the same house, hidden among the valley and pines. You're the...Read On


Forever In My Heart

Wherever I go you are there with me. Love notes tied with a ribbon and Old Spice cologne in the air, Songs like Embraceable You We would dance to all the time. Me making breakfast and You telling me you loved me. Holding each other tight as We watched old movies together. I lie in bed trying to sleep and still Hearing you whisper to me it’s alright. Your clothes are still in...Read On


The Fury Under My Skin

The chasm in her heart

A river of wretchedness will eternally choke the haunting chasm you chiselled in my heart. You wore me down then, tore me down to the thinnest layer of my flesh. The fury under my skin can never be unleashed by anyone but you.  You made it.  You earned it. Why did you torment me? Tempt me with  your sweet love.  Your faux love.  You mistook need for love. I loved you too much and I...Read On


Eternal is Love

It is wonderful to hear both melodies in sync.

It is madness. Feelings of passion, longing in your absence Dreams of you while still awake. The clouds may cover the sun forever; the sea may be drained instantly; the earths axis may un-align; yes all of that can happen. Death can cover me with its funeral robes, and even then the flames of this passion will go on. Yes it can happen! It is unwavering and real and with this...Read On

Trembling Bellows

...tears and rending vellum

Conceived by unwed winds And seducing eyes, The lantern hides your clever disguise. Bow silently my cello With mournful mellow trembling bellows And kiss my knobbing. Raising your thighs At dusk tides pendulum, Wending through tears and rending vellum For in webs behind my station My fantasies are rationed, Obsession with a ghost I fair. Like a tempest with a feather, Her...Read On



You don't really listen to the things I say. When I try to talk you seem so far away. And the clouds outside are dark and grey... I'll be better on Wednesday. I know you are troubled and I know it hurts, But sat here wearing one of your old shirts... I stupidly dream of our yesterday. But I'll be better on Wednesday. And I know things turn to shit! And it will...Read On



The days are getting shorter, Darkness slowly taking over. The chill of the air a reminder Winter is nearing. Curling up small She remembers the sensation Of his warm skin Pressed against hers. How his fingertips feel Tracing across her body, Caressing and slowly exploring Every part of her. She aches, Longing to be with him, But tonight she is alone, No protective arms...Read On


Afternoon Delight

Words cannot describe it, but this is close.

You are my afternoon delight,  Mine to enjoy until daylight. You set my world ablaze, And I lost myself in the smoky haze. Your fingers glide along my skin, Perhaps loving you is a sin. I will endure my fate, I cannot turn back, it is too late. If I go to hell, I will dance until I hear your silver bell. Ringing loud and clear from your lofty perch, You have been the end of...Read On


Closed Door

What remains when things are unsaid.

Words that are spoken when nothing is said The sounds that we hear, we should have listened instead A deafening silence has become our cocoon On this road that we’ve traveled we arrived way too soon A need ever-present now certainly lost In life’s forward motion had we measured the cost So we go day to day passing each other by Never taking a moment to even ask why In this time of...Read On



Hidden from others view Secrets sweetly sublime Visions shining brightly Glowing within his heart No one knew about her Filling a yearning ache Tinging his lacking life Subtly filling his needs  Still recalling her voice Never forgetting the tone Joyous ways they enmeshed Thinking thoughts so alike Smiling as they grew close With every passing day Finding more to be loved Sharing all that...Read On


It Was Always You

So I hid my love away Like mail that arrives in far flung lands No return address....Neither lost not found I felt more love for you than was ever shown And you held on with hope, waiting, Only one day to let go. As you walked away I waited for you to look back Then I worried that I'd blown my only chance. You moved along to that bleach blonde girl Simple, not so complicated...Read On



There is no where she would rather be Than in His arms, His warmth not just heating her body, But her heart, her very being, As it sinks into her, Creating a place she feels safe, Somewhere she can just be, Putting aside everything else. Curled up in His embrace, Her mind goes still, Stress and worry drift away. He is her shelter, All those things seeming too hard to handle ...Read On


Puzzle Girl

She's a puzzle girl with short grey hair, soft as a feather Don't try to understand her, she'll just quote you the weather Play with her mind and you might get a glimpse of her long legs Play with her heart and she'll throw you away like yesterday's rotten eggs Her pieces are mismatched and some have sharp edges and sides She looks for that missing piece to smooth out things and slow down...Read On



Apart but not separate

I see you across the canyon, Unable to hold you tight. I can't help with your distress, Try as though I might. Feeling your hurt inside me, I reach out with my mind. Trying to make you hear me. Thoughts of ours in kind. I love you more than words, And how I hold you dear. It's only the distance between us. Soon I will be near. I know today's a rough one, Your struggle obvious, I yearn to...Read On


The Duet

A song written by two

The keys and strings beckon Sit beside me and play We’ll compose a melodic embrace That will convince you to stay Hands on black and white keys Fingers wandering strings A haunting melody ensues That our hearts softly sing Soon notes become breath Rise in measure and time In a rhythm that builds And ties your heart to mine Pitching, bending and reaching Ever climbing the scale ...Read On


King For A Day

A royal conquest fuels a desire for battlefield survival

Secreted elixir, Chamberlains’ lust, Primal rhythms pilot his thrust, Masculine Eros, royal driblet, Measured commander, penning couplet. Leaving the fields of the slain uncollected, Gaining on she, this ripe queen unprotected, Scheming for days, his desire effected, She waits in her chamber for love intersected. She of patrician, he of high state, Her ravenous beauty she uses as bait,...Read On
