Love Poems


The playroom in the Seraglio


In the seraglio of the Sultan, the eunuchs keep a watch, lest Sappho's love should dull the edges of our desire.   I submit because I have to, sold to the harem as a slave, but my longing is for the scabbard, not the sword.   We play at cats' cradles, and with our dolls of rags, and we laugh and giggle, like little ones at play.   It is not just their manhood sacks that...Read On

Learning to embrace the season between storms

On this lush island, Suitcases unpacked, We trade our pallid Greenwich fogs And stinging coastal mists For drenching, Rainbowed cascades Under which we play And slake feral thirst. We tangle in solandra vines, Skin saturated In tropical deluge Yet aflame With touch sparked Chain lightning. Even the night's deepest thunder Can't suppress desperate whispers Wordlessly invoking Downpours...Read On


Virgin Lips

Virgin lips I have tasted         Not a drop was wasted.   Somewhere in this world I met a girl With a curl. The girl With the curl Threw me in a whirl. It was her Virgin Lips I have tasted The hunger in me Making sure not a drop was wasted....Read On


The Charade

To My First Heartbreak

When I first met him, I was lost in his eyes    With eyes so blue and so bewitching Little did I know he was playing a masquerade Hiding his emotions behind a mask. In his eyes, I saw the seduction And his desire of wanting me It was at that moment of my lost innocence Making all my dreams come true. At first, I felt his affection His touch was like a fiery sensation. I showed him my love...Read On


Over the horizon

Longing to be with the one that I love

As I lay here on the beach, As the waves brake upon the shore I dream and wonder What is just over the horizon. Closing my eyes, Dreaming of what lies beyond the horizon Over where I just can’t see Fearful to move close knowing, It’s always just out of reach. The thought that feel it beckons me close, The chance of a new life Is an offer I can’t refuse A world in which I am reborn,...Read On


The seraglio of the Sultan

An historical imagination

In the seraglio of the Sultan, the Orientalist imagination  saw a hotbed of all the lusts, as sensual houris competed for the bejewelled sceptre, of the munificent Padisha. It its pavilioned splendour, in courtyards paved with gold, the concubines whiled hours away, awaiting the call to arms, anointing with all the perfumes of Araby, their alluring charms. But as the sword of lust cleaved...Read On



Cold December day Warm December day Two souls awoke Walking in different worlds Miles apart They reached out From a spark To a hot ember Both caught fire Life in it's folly Forgot the spell Two souls In love forever Distance means naught As does time Be it miles or Millennium Two will  Connect  ...Read On



You leave me breathless

You leave me breathless, Every time we are together You are everything that, Is good in my life. You just don’t realise how special, You truly are to me I pinch myself, I can’t believe your mine It’s just like you walked out of a dream. The moment that we speak, It’s like for a second I lose my voice I am so speechless, lost for words Upon hearing your voice it’s so beautiful. It leaves...Read On

The Evergreen Gorse

There was the who, the who of my heart, a who we will not depart of abstract flipcharts, and evergreen gorse.   A gauzy shadow our wake, with a kiss of the who, but the who was you, as dew fell on the yew,   my lady of cordon bleu.      ...Read On


The sea is calm tonight

For my love

The sea is calm tonight, upon its ripples, the moonlight seems to dance and play, as we are wont to, when time and chance allows.   Across the vast expanse, out into night’s endless bay, you lie there for me, so very far away, except my thoughts  have you here, liquid in my arms.   The sun will rise, the night will pass, but the sea will be there still, and I can sink into...Read On


She's the one

She's is the one that I love

She’s the reason, for the smile That I have across my face The brightness and the sparkle That I have in my eyes. She’s has got the key to my heart, The key that I gave her With the unconditional love That I have for her. She is the reason for my happiness, She’s the exclamation mark  In the sentence, the happiest That I could put down in words. She is my angel, So very beautiful  It...Read On


Will You Wait For Me

Will you wait

Will you wait for me? It was the question Spoken in a whisper in the dark. The answer was yes, I'll wait for you, No matter how long I'll wait. She dried her tears after the call Telling her the news. She knew. He was gone. Before the call She felt her heart slowly breaking. But she smiled Through the pain Recalling the special memories. The nights of love, The passion they shared. ...Read On


The Surfer's Song

For my love.

My lover beckons me in the morning bright My lover calls to me in the pale moonlight Her song for me she sings.   She takes shape deep out to sea as she makes her way slowly to me. Her song in my ear it rings   On my board, I sit in wait gazing at the sea Like a siren's song to a sailor She calls out to me.   As she comes closer, I feel her rise I feel my need, growing in size....Read On



For my love.

Across the deserts of lust, for lust is a sort of desert, there is an oasis, lush and verdant, where we lounge.   With rippling fountains, in a courtyard, where sherbet and pomegranates  are to be found.   I want to lie there with you, in your arms, on your breasts, to forget the desert heat, in your lush oasis.   And there, an hour or two, we shall forget the heat, the...Read On

A Treasured Memory

A treasured memory you are I think about you often Shining like a bright star Together we were awesome I hung on your every word Your words always quite sweet This practice was absurd Causing a fast heartbeat My love for you was true I keep it in a safe place I only had eyes for you I liked looking at your face Like a needle in a haystack I found you there I loved all your feedback And...Read On

Bitter Sweet

Bound by catechisms of erstwhile poets Resting in orchards now covered by loam Bearing bones in Valhalla's stone ossuary Giving me the seeds that sewed my oats To be a better man than poets on thrones And as I scribe of bitter sweet's remorse Oracles ring down a chorus of fornication Poetically conceived in my coronation Scribing memories of a first love's heart Mesmerized by her...Read On


Love at first Sight

Is possible, because it happened to us

After only being introduced a few weeks ago Neither expected or hoped it would feel this good   They talked for hours and hours Yet it seemed like barely a few minutes   Talking about anything and everything Each learning more and more about the other.   As they looked into each other’s eyes They notice how they shine and sparkle.   Holding one another hands Because it just feels...Read On


When I Am Without You

When you're around, I smile a lot more

Sometimes the only thing that can make me feel better  Is imagining you and I together When you and I are together  Hours seem like seconds But when we are apart A day feels like eternity to me  When we are not together I want to feel your arms around me hugging me  I want to feel you brush your lips over mine and kiss me  I want to look in your eyes and see you smile I would just like...Read On


Scanning the horizon

For my love

Upon the far horizon  the clouds gather fast, the storm approaching  swiftly, I feel the rain’s splash    Sheltering from the storm, I wish I was in your arms, safe and warm and comforted, enamoured by your charms.   As, when a child, I cuddled, and loved my teddy bear, so it is with you, As I wish that you were there.   The longest night ends, the morning always comes, And...Read On



A pair of swans strolled through curtains of white and pink blossoms like lovers hand-in-hand. Petals were strewn around them their path tracing a poet's pattern of love. Leaving a single feather behind....Read On


Backroad Song

Driving down a backroad

Driving down a back road Looking for a quiet place to  Give into our passion Leaving the big show  Both feeling the rush  The natural high  Looking to add to the memory  That the show left etched on our soul Finding that perfect place  In the middle of hay field  The passion so intense  We give in and the passion  Could set the world on fire         ...Read On


After Midnight

I go on walking after Midnight

I go on walking after midnight Under the moonlight With my handsome knight We are in the moonlight When my knight Frighten me only a slight In a flash of a light He turns to me with feverish eyes so bright And tells me that everything will be alright My handsome knight Looks at my neck as if he wants to bite I try to put up a fight With eyes so bright I cling to him with all my might Then...Read On


On the cliffs

For my love

The sea is calm tonight, the moonlight ripples with the tide, and the night engulfs us, and we sleep, cuddled and warm.   The storms of the day are passed, the dark welcomes us to her arms, your heart beats next to mine, and we two are as one.   No longer on the cliffs, no more the far horizon, just you and I here, and love to surround us.   With the morning will come a...Read On


Always be you

From their first meeting they felt like it was meant to be until fate stepped in

She had a long emotional day Now it was time to go home But first she had to catch the train And walk a little way to her door.   Once inside she dropped her bags And laid on the couch Until she heard a whisper “Darling, come to me... “   Seeing nothing as she looked around She closes her eyes once more… After a moment or two a feathery touch brushes a strand of hair away from her face....Read On

Scones Today

Beyond the sunset of canopy sky neath a paper mache moon   And a shadow's eye as romance is in the chords   Of a harp's sonata and a moonbeam's theme   With kisses from your lips like egg cream   And a saucer cup full of gambol's love   As dulcet is stirred with lovely words of scones today   And I declare with chocolate eclair you as my troth  ...Read On


Sunshine and Showers

For my love.

Down in the hollow, the skies are grey, the rain, it raineth every day, and then some more, until my eyes are flooded, like the fields.   Nothing there grows, except the puddles, and they stream down my cheeks, in torrents, wetting my breasts, and trickling down.   The mountains look on the river, which flows down to the sea, and there I stopped and dreamed a while.   I...Read On


Is it quiche Lorraine Perhaps snuggle of romance On a cloud's futon following the rain As peenie wallies pepper the sky Losing verses of rhymes as you giggle my ear With a scent of Lambrusco following the rain Feeling the mist of your warm breath As petals of orchids kiss like lovers do Or is it quiche Lorraine Perhaps, following the rain    ...Read On



Time is echoes and snapshots afterwards. In the fevered dark with a bare heart still drumming against my own, scared and almost unknowable, your heat thrumming everywhere, I think that nothing will ebb away. That we'll emit this strange hallowed energy forever, that we can press tightly together until we see no true end or beginning to the other. And all that's mysterious and sacred about...Read On

Shakers Of Sand

Like a caravan my memories traverse Over dunes of my mind's thinker And shakers of sand. On an escalator to the ascending moon With footprints in Arizona, Shooting a Tequila. As the Sonoran sun falls And the Red Centaury sleeps, As we kiss neath a zephyr's touch And the hackles of the saguaro. From the edges of the auberge noire, The night’s sands slip away, Leaving...Read On


Kiss from a rose

I receive a kiss from a rose

A kiss from a rose, On a beautiful sunset night As the sun casts down, It’s golden rays of light. Upon the cotton candy clouds, Turning them bright red; fire red As they dip into the sea, Disappearing over the horizon. As the waves crashing, Upon the cliffs  Breaking the silence, As my English Rose kissed me. As we held each other, In a lovers embrace Locking lips as we kissed, Sealing...Read On
