Redeemed By Love

Sliding slowly towards the edge of the abyss, My mind begins its descent into the darkness, The pit of hell that constantly lurks out of sight, Like a shadow on the edges of consciousness, A nightmare place of unutterable terror, Where jeering demons await, hungry for their prey. Like a condemned man on the way to the scaffold, I see the leering faces of the mocking crowd Calling on me to...Read On

The Day Is Done

A romance in blank verse

The day is done and we are still yet one The sun sets soon and roams its way to dawn When we may once more feel our love renewed Enraptured by the passions we've both shared To watch the setting sun with arms entwined Is heaven down on earth when you are near We nod our heads together once again And murmur verbal bouquets to our ears No question that our lives are bound today And have...Read On

Just Want To Know

He drifted in her life and made her feel whole, but grew silent like a lamb.

Just want to know if you still care Removing my blindfold, how do you dare. Letters stopped coming, how can that be My mind is telling me what I can see. Just want to know if you still care You were always excited knowing what I would wear The excitement drew as you had visualed Seems as though, everything fissiled. Mornings together brought each of us pleasure A life full of love to...Read On

The Waiting Game

The ocean is frigid and deep; sunken ships await my entrance My head is bobbing above and below the tide as I gasp for air Quivering lips turning blue…legs kicking and arms flailing…eyes desperate I fight to stay above the surface but then begin to wonder Is the struggle to survive worth the fight?   I have been playing the waiting game to no avail Reality is fading into false...Read On

No One Dies Of A Broken Heart

It was a heart attack the doctors said, Brought on by overwork and too much stress; He was never going to die in bed, It is true, but I would hazard a guess That this was only part of the real truth, And there was much more to it than they thought. Of course, he wasn't in the flush of youth, And at times seemed a little overwrought, Always burning the candle at both ends. He had been so...Read On

The Sad White Swan

Evelyn stared blankly out the large window Holding the golden curtains open   The white sparkling gown hugged her delicate form gracefully A skirt of layering feathers enveloped her Evelyn was nothing less than a beautiful white Swan   Hearing movement from behind her Evelyn remained still She was trapped in a beautiful disaster “Lie to me,” she said softly   A slight sigh...Read On

Cinders

Passion, Burning, Fervid flame, Hungry, Thirsty, Knows no name.   Life with zeal, Hear the bells peal, Dedication, Devotion, Everything real.   Will nights of lust, Chaotic desire, Wondering, Waiting, Fuelling the fire.   Nights of anguish, See it languish, Lost among the flames, Burnt too far, Cinders.   Angry shouts, What went wrong? Tell me, Can we mend this song?...Read On

When We Danced the Waltz

The bright sun slowly rising from across the horizon A new day beginning to unveil and show itself The crisp air was chilly the birds beginning to sing A beautiful day approaching intertwined with strong emotions   She slowly walked along the trail away from her cabin She hugged herself with the quilt wrapped around her shoulders Walking into the field of long grass she stared ahead...Read On

A love resounding

Wrapped up in her love, where did it come from?

I hadn't noticed her before, So busy was life around. And so we talked, flirted and more. We chatted. laughter abound. Waiting for her to arrive. Not something I had planned. Looking at her and feeling alive. Dreaming of walking hand in hand. Dressed as she likes. Lingerie partly hidden. Up her thigh her skirt hikes. Touching, not unbidden. Her lipstick loud, scarlet and shiny. A finger at...Read On

Symbolic Things Prepared

A diamond is a girl's best friend It's given when one gets engaged A diamond worn until the end Worn forever during each stage Marriage vows tie a couple together The ring symbolizes their love Their love will be forever The rings worn fit like gloves Symbolic things prepared A service filled with love Vows that are declared Arranged from up above Cherished words said Their lives begin...Read On

Madness or Passion? EPIC It became

He loved her until the very end whether he got her or not

The mango grove with a lass called Paro perched on a tree among thick bush of leaves that Devdas could not see bleeding she came down as a stone was pelted sweat and spattering rain divulging her femininity fully wetted sweetness exuberant youth and defiant peaks of two about to mature fully globes,  areolas and perked up nipples too un-kempt hair and a cut on her forehead Devdas...Read On

A Girl's Lesson

In Memory

You bring fireworks with sparkling lights That seem to last the entire night As you take me round the stars so many times If I beg you stay till morning? I just hate to face the dawning Of another day without you in my arms You know secretly I ponder That there really is such wonder In all that you are teaching me to do As you take me this way that way I scarcely find a breath to say You...Read On

We Always Go On

You used to worship and love all parts of me, do you still? Easy to do when things were tight firm and new Staring in my mirror I see So many scars, flaws, surely you do too? Approaching from behind a kiss placed at the base of my neck Shh, stop, now's not the time I feel your lips travel and taste their way down to a scar on my arm Lingering, I try to pull away from you Hands turn me to...Read On

Only Philistines

The winds spawned a glacier of darkness, creeping, Creeping slowly through the narrative of my gloom, While I became detached from reality, Lost within the earth stones of my chosen. So I courted the doom with blackened ink, feeling, Feeling the sins of my recently departed, And a ghost whispered, “Why don't you come in?” While hemlock dripped poison into my pen. As I looked askance from...Read On

The Other Woman

My dear, I can't help wondering what I've done, You've become so cold and distant these days, And yet we always used to have such fun, Happy together in so many ways. You could have tried a bit harder honey; I asked you not to be late home last night, It was only our anniversary, And a simple gift would have been all right, Flowers, and perhaps a bottle of wine, And we could have ordered...Read On

The Game

Love's a game of players  Though not all quite the same, The most dangerous players of all Are those addicted to the game They move quickly through the others  Collecting hearts along the way, Not caring who is left behind  As long as they can play  Thinking they are skillful  Pretending to be real,  Know how to make you want them,  know how to make you feel The tactics that are used...Read On

The Sand Scatterer

The glint gave a momentary shutter To my awakening eyes from dreams Brought on by the sand scatterer As my lids lay heavy upon the seams And as ash in the hearth gives heat Your breath silently transgress As I feel my pulse rejuvenate  Awaiting the destiny of my fate Of years past when I was outspoken As a lumbering back wood poet  When I couldn't count the trees Because of the footpaths ...Read On

Never said Goodbye

What i would give for one more moment...

    It has been so long since you have been gone.  However each day I still miss you so much.   Hearing your  voice once more would mean the world to me. A funny story that makes you laugh or simply words of comfort.    Feeling your arms wrapped around me  pulling me close whispering sweet nothings  letting me know it will be alright.   But I wasn't there when god called...Read On

O Birds

Unrequited love...

O birds, sing of my love; chant my passion and hopes To the one beside me, he who saw what happened to me I complain to him then he smiles and makes me grow fonder of him O birds, describe to him my state of sleeplessness and my tears The birds warbled the sweetest serenades from the treetops The branches danced with the melodies, and the heart was infatuated And the breeze rose gently...Read On

In Remembrance Of A Blue Tattoo

With words I became anemically shallow Defaming my name of poetic fame By being obscure and arcane In remembrance of a blue tattoo Like rancor suckling my last breath A dark simmering in my chest My mind poisoned my pen As a bitterness swept my somber Yet in good deeds I rekindled our love Between my defining tribulations With shards of your splendor As you inspired my prosing With a...Read On

Nothing Will Be Safe Again

Nothing will be safe again. For in that magnified moment where we are an irreversible two, we've also become something much deeper than just ourselves. And for better or worse, all that has ever haunted me will somehow become yours, A silent contract made, signed with the body. I'll see the mistakes you've made, you'll be imprinted with the echo of how I once hurt you, there can be no...Read On

Smokin Gun

Too hot to hold

It's midnight and your cellphone rings They say, "Hey Baby"  You think to yourself   Do I want to pull that trigger   On a smokin' gun Is it worth just wrecking your bed or   Do you want more than   Just a smokin' gun and the regrets   You know when the morning comes They will be gone and You will be left there all alone They are just like a smokin' gun, too hot to hold You need more...Read On

The Last Kiss

The first was breathtaking. But the last was monumental!

The first kiss began with flirting, loitering lips Soft with tenderness and tentativeness A spark that sizzled across open mouths Let wanting, wondering, waiting for more Like succulent fruit from the forbidden tree   The second was full of hesitation yet hungry Your thirst for my lips was evident By your every movement and salacious moan The kiss was demanding yet subtle With...Read On

An Ancient Flame

The feeling blossoms like smoke from wood shavings. You watch it almost curiously, as if to say, "Oh, look. Something's starting." But where there's smoke... The feeling fans the flame into a red flower. A rose is harmless, after all. But when you look again, the fire is an inferno, Like those of old, which no rain, not even time, Can possibly put out.  ...Read On

French Kiss

My first terza rima, expressed with simple love

It's just a chance we live, we die in France. It could be anywhere that love may thrive But this is where we did our lovers dance. Our lustful joys will flourish, still survive, A lovers touch caresses, filled with fun, And shares a fervor vibrant, so alive. In light still bright, we see our poem's done, And share a pledge that we will make tonight, True promise these two lovers are...Read On

Romance on the Railway

Come follow the tracks to my heart

Each night beneath the kindly moon’s soft radiance We make again that joyful connection of love Vulnerable in our emotional nakedness As we bare the most profound feelings of our hearts All too soon the hour of parting is upon us Catching us unaware in our communion The whistle of the passing train is the sad signal That we must reluctantly say goodnight, sweet dreams Come away with me on...Read On

Retrouvailles

The joy of reuniting with someone after a long separation...

Your thoughts arouse sweet temptations, sending A wave of quiet rapture rippling through my heart, My body yearns for your delicate caresses, The last dance we had lingers on my mind. You make me quiver, I go weak at the knees, The sparkle in your eyes enthrals me, The midnight calls to murmur sweet nothings Saying, 'I love you' in your mellifluous voice. I remember the dulcet tones...Read On
