Moonbeam Poet

As for as winds blow and whispers bring new sings and rhymes of spring,  the bees that be, buzz honeycomb trees as nectar drips sweet love,  I will be a moonbeam poet  and you my evening primrose. My words yearn for you  as my pen wiggles on grinning paper and soothing wine of my treats, sipping your nectar.  With blossoming red lips and soft fingertips swaying in midnight shadows,...Read On

Player

The play's the thing . . .

You’re so good at what you do They just fall in love with you All your words are so sincere Everything they want to hear You read them like you would a script You melt hearts by kissing lips Loving tender ardent phrases Warm sweet deep meaningful gazes You draw them in You lead them on They want to be your only one It’s just a game A bedpost notch You reel them in They’re hooked; they’re...Read On

Giving Up

It is never going to happen. Believe it. It is not going to happen. Nope. How long are you going to yearn. You have wasted so much time. They don't care. They never really cared. They let you think they did, but they didn't.  Never going to happen. You are standing outside, in the pouring rain, metaphorically. But being soaked by the rejection, and it will never happen. Not sure if they...Read On

The Dormant Silt-bed of my Life

I long to hold you, And read you the Maximian Elegy Written for the now immortal Mildred. I long to hold you in the soundless forest And whisper in your ear All that I want to say But say it in a language You don't understand, Letting my kisses translate the words Upon your lips and eyelids and ears. I hope for the day that you might Swim naked in the peaceful spring Which lies deep within...Read On

My Kitten Wakes

He watches me wake.

I watch as you stir from your slumber deep, just as a kitten rising from its nap. The gentle flutter of your eyes in sleep as from your slumber you try to unwrap. So slowly your eyes open as you wake; you stretch as though to reach to claim the sky. A delicate sound made then as you take a cleansing breath released as a deep sigh. But, then you notice, too, that I am there, and reach for...Read On

Letter

Burned before reading

I hold in my hands A letter from you - Words on paper Not read - Heard - Hearing, hearing Needing quiet - I fold by half And yet by half again - Your words piling upon themselves Tumbling - Sliding together - Tighter - Folding and folding - Pressing away from me - Meaning less Hearing less Curves and lines of words fold Lines fold into curves fold into lines fold into curves And at last Fold...Read On

Love

Love is not a silly game, Love is not a game that I play. Love is not just a word I use carelessly, It's not just a word in the dictionary. Love can make you feel empty or fill your soul completely, It can bring you to your knees or fly you higher than the clouds. It can totally break you or fulfill your whole being, It can last forever or it can be fleeting. Love can come when you...Read On

The Kite

Whatever the ties of strings that wind  the threads of life gently in the breeze twining love songs and caroling, whatever the ties will sing most poetic rhymes of spring. And I as the poet with the pen bring my torch from dawn of charcoal with my lips of moisturizing dew, the words of everlasting true shining my shadow on you. As the sounds of time pass by  and the ball of twine...Read On

Thrill kill

You are my heaven and my hell

You thrill me, You kill me. You plunge your knife deep into my heart, Every time you walk away, say goodbye and shut the door. Things are going great Until they fall apart again, And I find myself sitting in the dark with a drink in hand, Wondering just what the fuck went wrong. Shaking my head, Laughing at my own stupidity, I should have known better than to fall in love with you. No...Read On

My Song

The sadness of that song you sing Is another way for my life to begin I just don't wanna cause no more pain I just want your life to begin again Without me tearing you apart It's time for me to move on and Sing my song to someone else My song started with a cozy feeling Inside that caused butterflies to fly What a feeling, soft hearts of unbroken love I cant escape the past...Read On

Her Solitary and Shimmering Excellence

5 short poems written days apart for a rare and sparkiling comet

I. I encountered her at midday Moved to write, I tried to think of an image An idea, an analogy That I could use to compare To her humble, solitary, shimmering excellence. I pondered her all day in silence Until I got on my train home Still stirred - still silent Awed by her graceful existence. II. How many men Fall in love with her weekly? Does she know - In another age - In another...Read On

The Horizon

I see you wandering just over the horizon, Your faint, familiar shape walking away from me.  The air is damp and full of moisture,  The dew is heavy on blades of grass. It clings on, not wanting to let go. I feel the same way about you, and yet I cannot run after you and beg you to stay with me. The pastel colors of the horizon stay etched in my memory. The peach and pink colors remind me ...Read On

Unspoken Love

I wanted more than coffee, but it was not to be;.

Oh, the waiting is sometimes more than I can stand. I yearn to see his face, his smile. I yearn to hear his voice, his laughter. He does not know how I feel nor dare he ever. He is married, so am I, but that does not stop the yearning, the desire, the need to feel his touch and warm embrace. A quick hug, a shared coffee time, chatter about life, a hug goodbye, till next time. All...Read On

Become As One

When our lives are done, may we leave together as one.

Knowing you are always there makes my life seem complete. I feel so secure in your arms that I am afraid of nothing. That aura that I see surrounding you sooths my empty aching heart. It fills it full of love to overflowing, showing my pride to the world. Whether we are in the same room or separated by time and space, your life force envelops me and allows my mind to laugh. I feel...Read On

A Lover's Doubts

raw emotional thoughts

What do I do with this hurt inside. How do I make things alright. Nothing seems good anymore. I feel lost and alone in a sea of people. Don't want to move, don't want to stay. Just want to be gone. Wish his voice didn't make me want him. Don't want to like him right now. I am still hurt and angry. Didn't want him to call. Didn't want to hear his voice. The voice that feeds a...Read On

Pineapple-Moon

Words alone of my breath fail to express the ways I adore you and just the who you were,  as I compose final chapters of our seasons and the inkwell runs dry. Until the blowing winds carry me to infinity and the last of the stirring leaves fly,  on my drying parchment I will scribe as my tearing eyes cry. It wasn't but an autumn ago wild geese flew over and beyond our livings...Read On

Stumbling Through Visions of Her

What do you know?

What do you know of drunkeness? Have you stumbled down city streets Drunk on her voice  Drunk on her eyes  Drunk on mere minutes of her time? Have you stumbled through visions of her lips Dying to be drunk on them too? What do you know of drunkeness? What do you know...Read On

Small Talk

I'm terrible at making small talk, the fumblings with introductions, the polite dance around countless casual conversations. It makes me nervous to merely graze the surface. I'm better one on one, whether on a silent walk through the cool spring night when your hand slips into mine, or when you lie so close that every breath warms my face. That's a language I can understand, ...Read On

Happy Birthday To My Dearest Wife

Happy birthday to my dearest wife. As you waken each morning, I'm here. Peaceful hope is my wish for your life. Please, just know this. I'll always be near. Yes, I know our voyage has been rough, But the good always outweighed the bad. If our pathway through life has been tough, Recall those sweet moments that we had. Tomorrow may not have time to spare. Have faith, we'll handle all that...Read On

Our First Kiss

Wanted this first kiss for so long.

Stares at my lips Fingers caress my cheek He leans forward Such longing Eyes closing He moves nearer Feeling his breath Mingle with mine, so close Both panting His fingers Tracing through my hair Pulling me in Hearts pounding Lips getting closer For our first kiss Pulling me nearer Lips barely touching So soft, just grazing Tip of his tongue Traces...Read On

As Black As Her Hair, and As Smooth As Her Skin

I see her Standing in a poem God wrote. I stand too, uneasily and nervous. I look at her - I look away. What poem is this? I order another Guinness. I fiddle with the straps of my hoodie I try to regain my footing. "Drinking Guinness is like drinking bread!" Someone in the bar makes commentary. "I could get drunk on Guinness I love it so much," I say, And I take another sip. "I bet you...Read On

I Remember

Alone in the night, the poet is filled with longing for his bride far away

Some lines for my sweet love Lying here in the inky dark, In the warm embrace of the night,  My mind moves, and I remember, Other nights like this, back home, with you. But I am far away, alone, Beneath an unfamiliar moon, And foreign stars, unknown patterns Shining down on my loneliness. You begged not to come, and leave you, Though it was just for a brief space, Soon to return...Read On

With Lampblack

It seems to me in dreams I see on distant horizons my Fata Morgana, and with lampblack and tales of the sea I scribe on parchment's scroll. Of beautiful be you bring to me with green eyes and starry skies,  emotional tides of sensuality and soft breeze of sea tomorrows. The whispers of promises we spent and where there are shores on forty winks, we kissed in last summer's swoon  ...Read On

I Am Here

Honor her and complete her.

Gazing out to the distant shore, Wondering from whence her comfort may come. It is my honor to aid and assist her every need. My lady, my deepest most profound respect and admiration, my duty, to complete you and compete for you, to repel your enemies, and to fulfill your needs, whatever they may be. I am here. I have been here awaiting your request, your need. I am here. Ask and it will...Read On

Making Love vs Sex...

A kiss is always better kept in the soul, that one that only touches the lips ...

The human body, beautiful, and perfect, only as He intended. The soul... immortal essence, life giving. Man, divine creation, strong and courageous. Woman, Taken from him, his peace, his breath. Sex, raw, lustful sinful, delicious, empty, and hallow... Love making... tender, sweet, meaningful, complete. Sex is not bad, but when used just for "experience" or pleasure. It...Read On

Marooned

I wish I could tell you my thoughts and let you in on the secrets I carry close to my heart, like cherry blossom's kiss to the spring. I wish my hands could travel along your skin and you could feel the need they have for you, like hummingbird's call for the flowers nectar. I wish I could let my soft lips seek yours and whisper the passion that flows through my body...Read On

Upon My Sleep

The midnight hour as I rest upon my sleep and you in cuddle of my embracing arms, soft breath of the swooning willows bough...  apple dumplings taste good even in dreams. As streams of kisses lay on my chest and your hands gently bask my stones, on fields of quilt my limbs sway... apple dumplings taste good even in dreams....Read On

For Us

Dreams and fantasies can come true.

I want to see you in every sexy position. In every setting, Our sullied minds can imagine. I need to see your beautiful eyes, Glazed over with wanton lust. To see your face contorted, twisted, With the pain of pure pleasure. Satisfaction etched deeply, In every part of your being. I wish to sate your every desire. I want to be the man you want and need. I want to make...Read On

Have You Ever?

... So deeply

Have you ever loved someone so deeply, so intensely, that you feel them deep in your soul? Have you ever loved so deeply, that your waking thought is of him, that you feel their breath on your skin? Have you ever loved so deeply, that you imagine his body close to yours. Can you feel his touch? Have you ever loved so deeply, when you close your eyes, you can see his smile? Have you...Read On

Rainy Day Kismet

Gingers have no souls. In gleeful dismissal our souls formed into one.

The rain was falling on that fateful day As autumn weather forced me to stop by. Beside a window watching trickles play, Whilst stirring tea, she heaved a heavy sigh. Side glances to her face at somber rest; Soft, cradled in a dainty hand, her chin. Thick locks, of titian, formed a wavy nest; Inspired my sense of wonder, and a grin. She surely had a soul, I smiled within, For beauty such...Read On
