She spoke to me

She spoke to me long before I heard her voice She spoke to me Her heart poured out volumes And not by choice And I saw her pain But it couldn't hide The beauty and sensitivity Of the soul inside She spoke to me My heart heard her plea She spoke to me My mind embraced the possibility Dreams of holding her close My arms provide comfort and protection Together at last Our hearts have made...Read On

She

On Monday Night - Part I

First kiss, first bliss...

Flaming skies change to evening, hot and heavy and damp. Lazily yielding as sunlight dies, Waking is the same as dreaming to a genie in her lamp. Dripping in faux humanity her exalted demon was queen. Yet, in her nudity, she is but a woman, not a fiend, and subject to fluidity. Warm, wet, shadows and the sound of a busy city wander through open windows, greeted with enmity. At first...Read On

Rima Oris

It's no wonder that the bow is almost shaped as a heart, or a pair of lips so taut from the ache in anticipation. This should be obvious by now, our skin animated from contact, a silent contract that survives past what bodies remember. I'll touch you and that lives in a moment I can't fully grasp, I can only recount certain frames. You'll pour through the words,  touching each one as...Read On

Reminiscence

It was getting stupid, so I left, I was upset though, I wept. But I missed her, I missed her a lot, Should've thought what I had, what I had got.   Maybe I was right, maybe I was wrong, It didn't matter, I left it too long. I kept looking in, as the months went by, I could see her, but couldn't say hi.   I thought it was love, and I threw it away, I dreamt of her, meeting again...Read On

Resolve

You kept my tears as souvenirs. Played upon my darkest fears. Held my heart in contempt. Used me till I was totally spent. Yet I continued to come back for more. No matter how many times you slammed the door. I only wanted to be held by you, Nothing mattered till I knew. How you really felt inside. It was then I finally cried. Your indifference in the open, unable to hide. The nature of...Read On

Moving In

Thank you for moving in with me, I'm so happy.

I’m just a girl who fell in love For that I feel no shame I told you that I loved you You said you felt the same   I asked you to move in with me To spend our time together Live our lives and share our dreams And ride out stormy weather   That night we drank Champagne We snuggled down real tight We got so very cosy It was such a special night   I gave you two of my keys With...Read On

The Night Everything Changed

Our lives were perfect We lived a normal life I was happy when we met I enjoyed being your wife We loved each other always Enjoyed living our lives Everything changed one day That night when we died We went out to an affair Everything was alright The evening turned to a nightmare We were both filled with fright Chaos and screams heard People running for cover Our minds were blurred I...Read On

A perfect 10

Miss perfect but not as it seems

She was a perfect ten, Oh boy didn’t she just know it  Turning heads whenever she enters a room Male or female she just didn’t care, Knowing her looks got her everything  Looking in the mirror, Noticing the natural beauty That she is. Not requiring makeup to enhance Her beautiful facial features  Beautiful long locks of hair, With natural blonde highlights. Wearing short skirts that,...Read On

Your Poem

Showing my love and feelings for someone special

I thought that I would write A poem about  The feelings that I have for you There ain’t a moment In the day that goes by Where I’m not thinking  About you Every second of every minute Every minute of every hour Every hour of every day That doesn’t go by without  Having you on my mind When I first saw you,  I was afraid to meet you When I first met you, I was afraid to kiss you When I...Read On

Time's Delicate Folds

Reaching you will unmake us, it is the end and start of our impossible divide, placing our every mistake in a clouded hourglass and hiding flaws in time's delicate folds. All of these moments have their own weight like stones of different shapes and sizes, decorated in glyphs and runes of the languages we lost, each can build a road and towering castles for us one day. I've broken time...Read On

A Kinda

As the Yeoman of the clouds sails a marshmallow sky A kinda unwinder of my mind-spring wound tight As dandelion seeds blow and honeysuckles trumpet The Forget-Me-Nots grow at half past Autumn On the slide of a night's rainbow we kiss As the heavenly stars of chandeliers glow We tie the knot with Forget-Me-Nots And when the Yeoman calls for sprinkling rain A kinda unwinder of my...Read On

Poem #437

everybody is driving home from work maybe one of them is that quiet girl who doesn't really fit inside her skin glasses that hide obsidian eyes she has faith in love stories but no faith in love everything that happens in the world always happens to somebody else no one told her she's pretty today or that her eyes are like dark jewels some drunk angel lost in the alley behind...Read On

Contralto

I may keep this all inside where  my heart can still see you. In time I will become more dreamlike to you, more akin to abstract faith rather than flesh and bone. Maybe I'll last longer this way. You'll miss me the same way I'll miss you, it'll only be allowed to come in fragments. To pour over you  as an undamaged coda. A fall breeze that will sweep your locks just like my...Read On

What Matters

Pieces of me scattered all over the place. Evident in all that I do. I can't even hide, without revealing part of myself. Both words and deeds bear my fingerprint. Lucky enough, to pick up some friends along the way. No longer possible to be truly alone. Entwined in hopes and in thoughts. Revealing what truly matters. Winning the lottery would be nice. But the real treasure you'll find, ...Read On

Gone

Gone but not forgotten

Fell in love for the first time with Montgomery Gentry playing in the background A night of passion that didn't last but The memories remain Montgomery Gentry became a part of the soundtrack of my life Windows down music turned up loud Driving down the back roads Raised a little hell to Hell Yeah Bonfires and long nights Dancing under the stars Then all of sudden in a blink of eye...Read On

With The Whiting

With the whiting of the clouds I blew a wafting marshmallow And a sweet hint of dew on the petals of a mornings' sunflower As the knees of the bees genuflect while spreading sweet pollen And the shadow of you dance on my chest with love's silhouette While the Gods in heaven blow on cue a summer shower choir And the honeybees raise their umbrellas Before the grapes ferment a ambrosia's...Read On

Metamorphosis

  How great my darkness,  A nightmare of my own She is a light to metamorphasize my soul   How bright her light is,   A myriad tiny flames, expanding to a whole Transforms my darkness and captivates my soul   How deep her fire is, How rich her presence and warm her smile How vast her love, to energise my soul    ...Read On

The sweetness of your lips

The melancholy beauty of the fall

The olives and the ochres of withered blades, Of conkers and hazel all through the glade Dark evenings, too soon the clock going back, Squirrels secreting their nutty snacks A ring of fairies dancing on the lawn, Appearing in the early dawn     The cool breeze brings a dash of rain, Like tears on the window pane A double rainbow a lucky sign? Watching with your hand in mine   ...Read On

Crumble

You can reach out to find me But I may not be there Think what you want of me But I just might not care Put a strain on my heart And it just might tear My body may be here Yet my soul, nowhere No call for help Not even a flare Dying so suddenly It just isn't fair The ending of "us" no longer a pair And all I can do is sit there and stare Watching as it vanishes into thin air No...Read On

No good for you

If I'm such a douche-bag you don't need me in your life. I've got greater aspirations than to be the source of your strife. The seeds that were planted, destined to die from neglect. Any possibility for a future, irrevocably wrecked. The foundation too weak, to endure the strain, of words said in haste, bristling with accusation and disdain. So smile as I leave, you've lost nothing at...Read On

Promises

Promises made should not be broken.

It's said love demands a lot from you But reality suggests it's not at all that true Two very simple things in love are a must Devoted loyalty and a faithful trust Trust in your love make sure it is deep The returns you get are yours to keep The stronger the bond the harder to break Has to be when there's so much at stake Loyalty plays such an important role A soothing kindness to a...Read On

Better way

I heard it again, "We can still be friends"! That cringe worthy phrase uttered, when a relationship ends.   They never mean it. Yet everyone pretends, that the band aid will hold, till your heart mends.   Your in-box remains empty, the phone deathly silent. Yet you puff out your chest, and flash a grin clearly defiant.   Beat me up, tear me down,  ignore my feelings and anything I have to say....Read On

The Dark Language

The dark language our bodies have learned may not survive beyond this night, this whirlwind of feral flesh,  maybe that is the way we need it.  You will ask if we are more than a body ceaselessly penetrated, more than lustful vessels writhing. This is where the very soul is pierced, the vague entity that tells us this  is some connective tissue that we  are not meant to understand. We...Read On

Crush

What can I say, that hasn't been said? How can I describe, what you do to my head? what can I do, to take my mind off you? I close my eyes I see you there, drifting to sleep, I smell your hair. And then I dream  we're together. But I wake alone and it's worse than ever. Longing, to know your touch. Never, wanting anything so much. Hold me, kiss me, love me,  then dismiss me. Play with...Read On

Offer

I look at you and my heart races my mind yearns to know if how my eyes perceive you is real and how close we'll ever grow You exist just beyond my reach as I try to catch your eye a foolish dream, a wishful thought culminating in a sigh I know you've seen how I look at you as I laugh and flash my smile but there's more to me than an impish grin and a hint of mischievous guile I offer you...Read On

Folded Flag

Memories are forever

  A folded flag is all that remains Someone came into my life and totally changed me He showed me what love was and gave me hope for a future He was gone too soon He left before we could have our dreams come true  One last night of passion before he went to help  One last night of being tangled up in the sheets together  One last long kiss That's why he is a hero  He knew the cost...Read On

"Rorschach"

Originally written 8/27/2015

My heart is an inkwell, overflowing with feelings I've known. Occasionally revealed by my pen. Both a gift and a curse, this fuel for my words. Spilling everything both real and pretend. Does any of it matter, or am I wasting my time? Pouring it all out for deaf ears, and stone hearts. Will it ever be enough, these memories, shadows and echos from my mind? Or will it continue to matter to...Read On

Penance

Paying the price

Swishing through the air, Thwacking, biting, stinging, burning. Spreading heat across milky globes, Squirming, anticipation building. Swooshing, striking again, And again, And again. Turning globes pink,  Spreading fire, glowing red. Yelping, whimpering, crying, Falling tears rain down. Pausing, waiting, listening, Holding still, craving. Speaking softly, pleading for more, ...Read On

Vanishing

Vanishing. We are no longer one, we are now two.

Vanishing. My love for you. Vanishing. We are no longer one, we are now two. Vanishing. Into the pale moonlight. Vanishing. 20/20 vision is always perfect in hindsight. Vanishing. In search of something new. Vanishing. Chasing rainbows from now on. It's just me living life without you....Read On
