Sigil

We seemed to be words and skin, just seeking passage, some part of you may never return to me. It could have been no other way, our roaring need, this incandescent edge. Something opens in you when longing grips, clenches around so tight, I can only answer the call in shivers. Even with the knowledge that I cannot be touched the same afterwards. To see you glow so bright as you...Read On

Late Coming Love

Oh my love, I have lived a long and full life, Knowing in equal measure both joy and pain. There have been triumphs, and some disasters too, But fate has been kind, granting many blessings, And in the scales of fortune, more good than bad. Entering now on the twilight of my years, I spend my time reflecting on life's journey, And my thoughts turn at length on old memories, ...Read On

Old Pewter Can, 1862

In a tin can is a letter I penned, On the Tennessee River near Shiloh, While laying mortally wounded.  Shot by a Yankee in uniform of blue, In a peach orchard... 1862. As I cast my eyes to Heaven above, Waiting for the last twang of a harp,  I feel your breath upon my soul, Carrying me home to Old Dixie  And the pecan fields of home. And when the good Lord has roll call, I'll...Read On

Freedom

It's okay to be me.

An attraction between individuals. May it be GLBTQ. A man. A woman. A transgender. Or all, whatever. Shouldn't matter. A heart connection. Is a heart connection. An attraction. Is an attraction. There is already too much control... Humanity is not really free... Who has the right to say for me? What is right. What is wrong. My thoughts and feelings are mine. Mine alone, not yours or...Read On

A Cry In The Dark

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say,  But what do they know of the way I feel,  With no word from her as night follows day,  No sign to show that she hears my appeal,  Just a cold silence that cuts like a knife.  She vowed that her love could not be numbered,  That we would be one to the end of life,  Her love so strong it could not be sundered.  She said it would...Read On

Are You Ready To Dance?

Are you ready to dance? Allow me to help you up, Your steps will be unsteady, Do not fret or worry, I’ll let go when you are ready. Are you ready to perform? The lights are bright, Shining in my eyes, I look to him for support, As he’s helping me to rise. Are you ready to dance? A smile upon my face, Raised on pointed toes, Taking a deep breath, My eyes begin to close. Are you...Read On

The Barrel Key

A home for an old key.

Discarded, thought lost One time it meant more Presently old and worn Cast aside in a drawer Forgotten through years Its value diminished Tarnish eclipsing A once lustrous finish Stem and shoulder chipped Bow battered and worn The latch set corroded Long since forlorn Unexpectedly found Warmth comfort and trust Held now in her hand “Keep it safe please, you must.” My guardian, she...Read On

The Wait

Dreaming of a lover...

And so on, towards the year’s end, Time devours all, And lovers seek salvation, in the arms of lovers. The grandfather clock in the hall ticks, And she sips tea, through scarlet lips, An auburn curl, loose across her cheek; She watches raindrops, Running down the pane. And somewhere he, To the roar of breaking waves, And the light of a guttering candle, Writes...Read On

My Vow

I pledge my love.

I will follow you through the trials of life and walk right beside you as your loving wife. I have seen your strengths and your weaknesses, too; and, I hope all that I am, I will compliment you. I hereby accept your token of love, blessed by our Father from His throne above. I take your arm as I face life with you; becoming as one where we started as two....Read On

Drunk Sentry

"Mixing memory and desire..."

Drunk tonight, I see Memory will not be still— As desire will. Desire silent, I thought myself free awhile— Of your departed smile. But you are there, love, For memory, drunk like me— Yet sees more clearly. That Boston evening, I half-tricked your bra away— Baez, Dylan, play. Your young professor Sucked each secret, perfect breast-- How could you protest?...Read On

Gone Alone

It happens too often

Something happened today, Strange in every way, You up and left, You’ve gone away, Again today. What did I say? Why didn’t you stay? Was it all pretend? No beginning or end, I should have known, You weren’t my friend, You weren’t anything then. Who are you? What did I do? Will I ever find out? What filled you with doubt? Did you know all along, What this is about? Imaginary clout. ...Read On

Love poem

There are a few lushies, who found their way into my heart. I hope they realize, this is for them.

You have entered my life Through a keyboard and screen And you've entered my heart Before I even had seen How you look on the outside But I really don't care For you showed me your soul By the things that you share And I think you are awesome And I know that you will Be around when I need you When I'm feeling a chill That you'll hug from a distance But the warmth will...Read On

Positions

So many positions to try

Naked, skin on skin Lips, on hips, moving in The first position, you on top Moving, shifting, bodies drifting Bodies entwined Positions changing, turning, playing Your lips on mine, sweet sixty nine Filling me with wanton lust Your beating chest against my breast The second position, me on top Riding, grinding, open, exposed Your fingers help to bring me close ...Read On

Down An Old Gravel Path

Alone at taps, Down an old gravel path. Signed, sealed and delivered, By a tandem of believers With six white corsages. And I in my sanctum berth, Lay in a garden of granite, Pushing up dirt, Down an old gravel path. As you molly-coddle a tear, In the still of an angel's breath,  Sitting beneath a magnolia tree, Sipping widow's tea. Like quiet dandelion seeds blow,...Read On

Epicenter

It was something so very simple, only complicated by memory's kindling when we sought out what torches would light the way back to each other. So I'll tell you what I remember, no sugary wistful longing because I'm already too tempted to mythologize you and I into something else. You'd rather know I was clutching the raw epicenter of this instead. I remember your hand reaching out,...Read On

I Love You So

I love him for who he is.

I love you so much more each day, I'm glad you decided to stay. We have a love that will not fade, I feel so good, no more afraid. You protect me from life's hard fray and make me feel our love's okay. With all the ways we yearn to play, and all decisions we have weighed. I love you so. You hold my heart in every way, I listen close to all you say. There's nothing in our lives I'd...Read On

à la mort

As close as a beetle's eye, I scribble amore,  Silently sifting sand in my dreams,  Prosing with a sluice of swill. As Goth is to still, my quill scribes, Of bamboozling phantoms and ghosts. Grasping naught my sorrows, As a shadow overcomes a pantomime, With mythical kisses, in poetic lines, As close as a beetle's eye, I scribble amore. Now that winds of spiritual wings,  ...Read On

Demon

Once By the flame flare in your eyes With pupils drawn I realized As you lit that cigarette Fire taking hold Upon its end Tendril smoke curls up And out Tobacco sulphur scents Swirl 'round That You would never let me go You’d taken hold Within my soul Sometimes for better Knowing worse Fully merged Both charmed and cursed I’d felt the change Come over me You would care  For all my...Read On

Tasting you, teasing you

How I love to please you

Tasting you, teasing you My lips trail all over your body My warm mouth caressing naked Shoulders, torso, feet, thighs Tasting you, teasing you Pausing, breathing, kissing between your thighs Waiting. Waiting for your hips to thrust upwards Pleading, needing Tasting you, teasing you My lips upon you, your moans soft and needy My tongue caresses your folds Thrusting at...Read On

Spring Lover

Winter is gone and spring is here. My flower is longing to bloom. First my arms burst through the soil. Then I pull myself up to hear the birds. Against my face I feel the cool breeze. Allowing the sun to feed and nurture me. My arms unfold from my succulent stem. It’s time to reveal my flower to him. I allow my petals to fall open. The mystery of my beauty is exposed. ...Read On

Crimson Kiss

Not yet, your voice fluttered, look closer... Our lips shuddered with promise, anticipation's ephemeral stillness gripped all else inside the dream. I'm not usually swept into immediacy but I was already dreaming in a field of fragrant orange and yellow flowers, of crimson locks glowing in the sun. The slight curve in a shy sweet smile, shadows making little silhouettes across freckles. ...Read On

Poetic Acorn

With a sniffle-wiggle I sneeze, as pollen, like winter's snow blow,  brushing away a tear  upon a poetic acorn. The mendacity of it all when meadows are shorn, by a scythe romancing a bee,  with a failing smile. There you hum in memories,  a spiritual kiss of mummeries',  for in my ear, an angel thralls.  God's everlasting diaries. And when the hushing grippe  laid down...Read On

Heart Flutters

A heart flutters Sit, wait, watch wonder Window sill a bird mutters Eyes please open, see Fingers touch, pulse strong Light return to me Hours, days, each pass Smells assault, from this place This surely not the last Beep, a small change Sounds, a voice says my name Feet running, feelings range Relief, guilt all mixed up Back to me, the bird leaves Confusion, I offer you a cup ...Read On

Tears

My tear falls silently, Escaping the corner of my eye, It’s not alone, followed by hundreds. Finally I moved away, Away from the arms I’ve known, The love of my life, my one. Your touch fired my passion, As you took me on, When no-one else wanted me. I'm scared of being alone again, Though this is so wrong, Fuck I’m confused. At that doubtful place now, Torn between staying...Read On

Muted Hob

Beneath my shawl, old bones of me,  the pendulum of my fob stirring my tea  as dusk becomes a shrouded nigh,  in scribes I prose, bye and bye. With a snickering grin, the Osage poet, on the crest of the river Styx,  as the tide in the inkwell swells, poetically between Martyrdom and Hell. Now with curse of broken stallion,  my penis lay wilted about my thighs,  dripping not, but...Read On

Love Me, Master

Master, you had me on my tiptoes, So close to heaven, that I could reach out and touch it.  Then you took it.  Snatched it from me.  Showed me how horrible you can be.  You understood me, said you loved me.  You were just playing a game with me.  I am just your puppet.  Building me up to knock me down. Again.  There is no love for me in you, master.  I wish I hated you.  ...Read On

All day long

My heart jumps  When I think of you It does that  Every time I do And I can only Think of you So my heart jumps All day long I warm up When I think of you I do that  Every time I do And I can only Think of you So I'm warm All day long I miss you When I think of you I miss you Every time I do And I can only Think of you So I miss you All day long...Read On

Tale

Ashes gritty gray The kindest heart battered Assailed by sneers  Adorned in tatters Dreaming improbably Days end to end Invitation omitted When enchantment descends She enters the ballroom In her splendor aglow Heads turn to see her A sight to behold Bewitched and bewitching As they take the floor Yet the warning was given To midnight, no more Their dance not of steps So smoothly...Read On

Goodbye To You

Our love is true, our love is never ending.  A love like that should work perfectly.  Ups and downs, of course, we will have.  The best times will always be in my mind.  So why do I lay here crying in my bed? I feel for you but you're not there.  Reaching out my arm I feel the empty space you left behind.  We could never make it work the way it should.  The bad always in my mind and...Read On

Fuck off, please.

Ever have one of those days where nothing goes right?

How I loathe you. I was fine, I had accepted my fate. I accepted a life of merely existing, decades ago. It was unnerving to plunge that dagger in my heart. I thought I had murdered it. Sure, it beat. But, it didn’t feel. It couldn’t hurt me anymore. I had won. I was the victor. How sweet to claim the prize of ‘no more pain’. And then, You. You, with that fatal smile. You,...Read On
