Love Poems


She Waits

She waits for her man whose gone to sea.

She stands on the hill overlooking the ocean deep. The tide rises slowly as over the rocks it creeps. She keeps watch for her man, he's a long time out to sea. She blessed him as he left saying this is where she'd be. She pines for his kiss as she yearns for his loving touch. Her heart breaks every day because she misses him so much. She longs to be in his arms, safe and secure again....Read On


Stay With Me

Begging him to stay the night.

I took a chance, professed my love, my heart beat fast and free. Tomorrow will decide our fate... tonight you stay with me. I feel your arms encircle me, your lips so close to mine. I trace your hips, your back, your face... remembering each line. My spirit soars, my mind now laughs, as happy as can be. Tomorrow will come soon enough... tonight you stay with me....Read On


Broken Again

The pain of losing your love

Boxed up and forgotten, A passion neglected for so long. Un-used and alone, Worthlessness took over. Then I met Him. The softest kiss upon my lips, I felt his strength that moment. His words unlocked hidden desires, Doubt crept in. Then I accepted Him. He opened my eyes, Gave me my value. Opened my soul and poured his in, My wall came down. Then I adored Him. Your heart is mine he...Read On


Walk With Me

Take my hand and walk with me Along paths we’ve not yet covered Destinations of which we have dreamt And hope one day to discover. Cadillac Mountain overlooks Frenchman Bay Acadia’s carriage roads call The Merced River flows past El Capitan And Yosemite’s Upper and Lower Falls The Grand Canyon’s floor becomes our bed Under a blanket of stars in the sky The expanse of the heavens laid...Read On


Love Is...

Love breathes life into me, And makes me feel alive. Love is a friendship, a union. Hearts bound for an eternity. Love is waking each morn, To your kiss which brings me comfort. Love is wanting to know and hear, Everything about my day. Love nourishes my soul and warms my heart, As we waltz together through life. Love is knowing my faults, And never pulling away. Love is not saying a...Read On


My Private Getaway

When I am sad or scared I go to a private place A cabin I visit often with you To talk or play Sometimes just to sleep the day away As we snuggle and cuddle and smile and talk You behind me and me wrapped safely in your arms The fireplace so warm The soft music playing We watch the snow falling The lights twinkle on the valley below We lazily hug and share soft kisses ...Read On


Those Two Words

Those two words, how often have I heard them and felt relief? How often have we all heard them and been brought hope? The pain each time I hear those words, they sear my heart with grief. Thoughts of beginnings and ends, my soul I twist into a killing rope. I swim out beyond the shore and waves, now beyond your reach. Salt water fills my ears, the sound of your words I try to drown. I look...Read On


Welcome Home

I sit very still and not make a sound Trying not to let my breath show How he effects me How my fingertips burn How my body shakes How wet my pussy is dripping How badly I need his touch When he walks into the room I continue to try to read Knowing how he is making me feel How much I need and want When he comes to me And I look up into his eyes He smiles and winks ...Read On

The L Words

Remember when it was just us, old friend? It was me against the world Only you were by my side For the years we spent together You and I. Until Love broke into my life, Playing to the rhythm of my heart. She came between us And showed me something new Dared me to dream of more. I admit, I forgot Of you For a few. The times we met Were passing, fleeting visits, then She was always there...Read On


I want you! I need you!

I want you, I need you, but you still walked away.

I want you. I need you. More than life itself. Our fingers to interlock. Entwined hand in hand. To taste your lips upon my own. So soft and tender to kiss. Our two hearts beating together. Our eyes drawn to one another. I want you. I need you. But you left me in the cold. Shivering from loneliness. Teardrops that never fall. I cried for you. I called out to you. But you still walked away....Read On


My Christmas Wish

My Christmas Wish It’s the most wonderful time of year The air should be filled with Christmas cheer Trees and houses adorned with lights The twinkle of children’s eyes so bright Santa knows who’s naughty and nice He has his list and checks it twice If only he and his magic reindeer Could bring you to me, so we could be near I’d wrap you tight in love’s warm embrace ...Read On


The Meeting

A meeting of one sided feelings.

The waiting is always more than I can stand. I yearn to see his face, to touch his hand. I need to hear his voice and see his smile... just to spend some time with him awhile. He dare not ever know how deeply I feel because my love for him is very real. I yearn for his touch, his lips, his eyes. He is so passionate, so caring and wise. He is engaged to my dearest friend so my love for...Read On


The Underlying Need

Words of encouragement for my beautiful princess...

There it is, Hidden in the dark recesses of your tender heart. Yes, it is there that you find the craving, the absolute need. It has held you captive since the very beginning, When you were but a fragile, little girl, This vague yet overpowering desire for something just beyond your grasp. The years have flown by And my girl has blossomed into a beautiful, vibrant woman. And yet...Read On


Heart Of Gold

You have a heart of gold Your love is pure Your touch so real Dreams of you lying on the beach You are my lover You are my husband You are my beautiful world You are every breath I take I look for you in the horizon You are the sunset You are the stars I am proud to know that your heart is filled with gold You touched my heart with yours Turning my heart...Read On


On Amorous Occasions

Like a porringer my mind ladles verses of chowder, Sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet, Over wallops in the road and all things told. As the quill spoon-feeds my quest, At hour I lay me down to rest, When my eyes fall bleary  Searching for pages of my chatterings. And with a harbinger of thought I caress, The hollow in the well of my chest As you kiss me upon the cheek. In...Read On



My insides are bruised, Slightly twisted and abused, As I take another drink, I get lost, turn around, I get found, Trying to heal, looking everywhere, I take myself to the brink, to the edge, Still believing in illusion, Trying to forget everything, Wipe the slate clean from start to finish I am paranoid and dejected, A loose end unprotected, A little wicked and unhinged. If I...Read On


Take Care Lover

My arms long to hold you My lips to taste And make you mine You are but a heartbeat away But yet so far So very far from me Make me yours Never leave me wanting your touch again We have found something special Take special care For it doesn't come often And is so very dear...Read On


Love In The Dark

We have never been 'together' But we have loved like the greats Never needing any titles to describe our love We are free and love with abandon Your heart beats against mine It feels like it's beating in my chest In this dark room we escape to be together Alone Ourselves No pretences in our hearts as we shed expectations with our clothes Naked I bare myself to you My soul to you The real me...Read On


A Friend's Feeling

I get so restless, thinking about you.  What we can be,  What we can do. It's crazy,  It's just wild.  When I see your name,  I smile. This has never happened before,  To me, it's new. But, I know what I want,  And sweetie, it's you. I'm glad you are my friend, I appreciate you.  Everything you did,  Everything you'll do. I tried so hard, to be just your friend.  ...Read On



The end That's where it starts At that moment you walk out of my life You look back at me Wanting me to stop you One foot out the door And the words get stuck in my throat. 'Don't go' I want to shout 'Stay just one more night' But how do I love you without losing a piece of me? You stand there still Wanting me to beg just one more time I turn away And one last time you follow me 'My other...Read On


Just Once

Meeting one's online lover just once

I often wonder How it would be To have our worlds  Intersect for a while Your world and mine This world and real life And to be with you To have us be as one Just once We'd initially meet In a public place Such a better idea, At least at first The conversation Of much more than strangers Somewhat awkward, As we introduce ourselves In a very different way Each searching ...Read On



I stand here empty I have given you everything All of me And now I'm empty You never asked I just gave That's just what you do when you are in love You give without expecting Take from yourself to make the other whole You take until there is nothing left Until you're drained Wanting Empty My love for you could move mountains Shake oceans Destroy the world But for once my love for me has to...Read On


He Runs His Hands Down My Body

He runs his hands down my body. He pulls at the ends of my shirt.  He pulls me close, kisses me lightly.  He pulls my shirt up and over my head. I feel light and heavy at the same time.  I kiss his neck lightly. I run my hands over his back  I pull at his jeans to bring him closer. He runs his hands down my body. He grabs my waist and brings me close. He pulls off my jeans and...Read On



Sometimes I wonder,  wonder if I'll always be alone.. Sitting somewhere, watching the people walk by with their loves with them,  yet no one is near me.. Is it my looks?  What makes me get skipped over every time? I ponder in my head, the things I could do differently, how to change the way I look,  then I decide - well, no,  if he doesn't like me for me,  then screw him... ...Read On


Whispers Of Vermillion

Erstwhile, but a thought, A shenanigan ago, Without least the jargogling, On my window pane a quiet still, A carousel doily of frost. Like a shadow passing over my sill, Whispers of a vermillion fly-away bird, With verses for my inkwell to be heard. Silently stirring curds and whey of memories, Of how we danced winter's chill, And with thunder of baton, Croutons of rain...Read On


Words and A Thank You

A heartfelt thank you to everyone here, both authors and readers and those who run this site

The power of words, an often very familiar subject matter for poetry and prose. The choice of words and the community of Lush is what I wish to examine for a short time here. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, the choice is a never ending list. For from now I'll just use the word rose. I know some words have power over me, my feelings, my mood and can even incite some fear. How has this come to be?...Read On


Simple Ceremonies

Shall I pour or shall you A cup of shared  remembrances or renewing  an old affair A simple ceremony of life and loving We have so many do we not So many simple ceremonies in our lives Sharing good times and bad Sharing the ceremonies of hope and fear and death and joy Such joys we share in simple ceremonies A welcoming hug a kiss a sigh a loving embrace as we live and before we die ...Read On


Our Firsts

I remember every word Of our first conversation Giggles and blushing Accompanied by a swarm Of the first of many butterflies You would make me feel Eventually the first flutters Became the first "I love you" Saying goodnight impossible Leading to the first ache As we wished for more time Though distance hurts Our time will come If we never lose hope We will share our first kiss And...Read On


A Wish For My Lover

To be with you this holiday

Here we are at the holidays Even though you’re an ocean away How I'd love to be with you today Thinking of you on Christmas Day I see us in our house by the sea Snuggled in front of a fire You drinking wine and me iced tea Holding you is all that I'd desire We'd have a small tree And exchange presents This would be our reality This would be pleasant I’d be in a dress with heels...Read On


Only Me

I couldn't decide what my heart had wanted, I couldn't multiply and divide myself into two. I'm only me. I love you both so deeply. I'm so sorry for the mess I've made, My heart's been bleeding. I see a monster when I look in the mirror but I'm only me. Maybe I am the fucked up one and I don't know shit about love. I thought I had found my safe haven with you, Now it's gone forever. I...Read On
