To Show My Love

I went all in I showed you my hand No feelings were hidden You now know where I stand I exposed my heart Now how do I show I feel I have no way left To display what you know My love is bursting out My heart is ready to sing But how else can I show When I’ve done everything I’ve kissed you with passion I’ve said all I could It feels like there should be more Though I know you understood ...Read On

The Night Belongs

The night belongs to you, its spectral glows upon your frame reminds me that there are pieces, fragments of you with me that I won't be able to give back. Such pain once made us dangerous. It's become something much more that will bind us together. And I'm always waiting for your touch  to take me out of the dark, that's when you'll tell me everything. But I don't want the mystery of...Read On

d'Artagnan's Ghost

Of Alexandre Dumas three musketeers In dreams passing of the night's shade Echos of lust and romantic embrace And I shaking a dawning new reveille As the dew lay upon the spawning morn And I trussed up in my fuss The beating of your heart's rhythm While feeling your breath's sweet melody Whispering a poetic rum's brew While kissing away the hermit's boo Embracing the dawn of a new day...Read On

Weeping Brooks

Walk softly stirring not weeping brooks Of petrified bygones and memories Where spirits danced among evergreens Above the shoals and big branch waters Cascading over rocks by grace of earth's sod Of times when this land was of woods Where the Cherokee dwelled And the salt licks stood Now making love in heaven's teepee  ...Read On

Breath Of Cayenne

Sayeth the windchimes at nine Will thee be mind, if so kind? While flattering the ghost As breath of cayenne brushes the host With a touch from pungent lips In real time of a Zephyr's kiss As twine of kind unravel the dream  About the brow of my poetic mind Sayeth the windchimes at nine      ...Read On

Pania of the reef

A poem based around the New Zealand Maori myth of Pania of the reef

Still and silent stream in the midnight dark Resting amongst the flax is the night sky beauty herself Quenching a thirst from the sweet, still waters Winds that whisper vows and carry the faintest of spells Her eyes are deep pools of wintery water Playing in the shallows feels safe, any deeper and you risk drowning An otherworldly beauty emerges from her secret stream Such an ethereal...Read On

The Toast

The glasses raised The toast is made The glasses clink Connection made The perfect toast  A moments wishes made Words of life  Of possibilities untold  The taste of wine The glance of love The sharing of a fragrant hue  Oh what becomes of  This glance of love  This certitude When lovers meet and time stands still The toast The glance What else can fill the cravings of my heart,  but you ...Read On

Fears

Love is stronger than fear.

Around they swirl, Faster and faster. Closer they draw, Loathing, self-doubt and insecurity.   Tottering on the edge,  I can't seem to resist. Their seductive pull, Luring me in.   NO! His voice rings clear. Hands strong and firm, Pulling me from the brink.   Mine!  Beautiful!  Strong! His words break through. The fears that swirled, Fading quickly away.   Calm and safe, ...Read On

Reverb

From a series of sonnets

After we are a tangle of limbs braided, our heat encased within blankets and our still, feverish forms, I try to listen to the endless  beautiful code that your heart makes. You're always trying to tell me something whenever we're not using words. This live wire between us speaks.   I hear you more in the reverb, breathe you between the beats, no matter how my fingertips touch. No matter...Read On

Intent

Don't touch without intent Your fingers graze my soul A scar's path in its wake My heart's not for rent Only passion and zest Will I accept these days Arouse me with words Rise above the rest Pieces of my heart I hold close and protect Darkness lurks deep inside No more pulling apart Another change to mend Broken wings time to heal Our future not certain Certainly, not the end Sin now...Read On

Ballad for a Derelict Soul

I play dangerous games with the dark Like never knowing the difference Between the flicker of starlight and a thousand-mile string Of cheap motel signs Where you pull off out of a mule-kicked life And end up dancing alone in a room reeking of bleach With the afterimage of the girl working that liquor store You stopped in so many miles and hours back Who barely noticed you standing...Read On

Ink Of The Thorn

As December's frost warms my porridge My fortunes wed in a thimble of prose Whittling kibbles of poetry beans In bittersweet of my scribbling harvest With verses from a potpourri sewing basket As my eyes blink still of night Between winks of an angel's tear Winter born with ink of the thorn With the fragrant of her bud On silken bed of snow Like soft cashmere on a petal of rose On...Read On

The Eden Garden

Light finally reached my eye. Colors. They appeared.  Where were they before?  The wooden gate was open now..  I sneaked inside and closed it back as it was.  The dew of the morning  Covered my skin.  A refreshing embrace.  It was my private spring.  I cupped and collected the colorful tulips  Filling my heart with their velvety rainbows.  The called me, they sang to me And full of trust...Read On

Metamorphic Transformation

With eyes like chatoyant gemstones That of metamorphic transformation Giving renaissance to my pen As you rise from metamorphosis Spreading silken wings of pollination  With colors of the Lepidopteran As your kiss touches my lips In poetic arabesque On petals of new life With eyes like chatoyant gemstones Of onyx in earth tones...Read On

Her Ultimate Kiss

I believe the title reveals enough to steal a readers heart right from the very start.

Her ultimate kiss was  the first one that she gave. It's the one I will remember even when I'm in my grave.   So sweet and soft and gentle filled with promise, joy, and bliss. There's no forgetting or regretting a tender kiss like this.   It was innocent and passionate with the hope of more to come with the hint of mint and honey upon her lips and tongue.   Love was safe...Read On

Snow Capped Escape

The final journey of his mission has ended in Finland with his lover...in dedication to Sensual_Tom

Forever in your loving embrace Alas, this is the final week of your journey. Fingers entwine, just like lace Turning to me, assuring that you will be worthy. Trudging through the snow capped mountains Exploring nature and winter conditions. Your lips over mine, suppressed like drinking from a fountain Whispering your love and fidelity, from your own admissions. Hand in hand, we trudge...Read On

You Wore The Moonlight

You wore the moonlight like a secret, a closely guarded confession  to bloom against your skin. I was too afraid to touch then, already not knowing how to let go before this dangerous rubicon  of contact where our hands meet. Even then, I was already clinging too jealously. But you were interested in little things that I have trouble remembering that would in time become everything. I...Read On

Are They There

With fingers so numb

And after we're gone who'll remember to care Despair waiting there for the loss all will bear For the loss  For the loss They show love and despair We will never return But remember to care Knowing despair that is already there When the chill sets in will they share that they care When their fingers are numb and their heart is still bare It's despair It's despair It's...Read On

In Want

How can I be in want When you are there by my side  Yet, want is there Resting calmly, gently and full of latent passion   For when I touch you  And our bodies collide All time stands still  And our union complete   When I taste you  My hunger satisfied  My thirst quenched And my heart is stilled    Our breathing  Our hearts  Our bodies  One in finding that secret place...Read On

Pipes Of Heaven

With thunder sounding a yowling As if a devil was shaking a wake In the mode of good cheer As pipes of the heaven speak A chorus of God spoke I in waistcoat beseeched by sins With my gullet full of dry gin As a brume swept a fog of kind A soliloquy of a tremble rushed in On cobblestone of the Wayfarer's Inn As the embers in grate warmed my nog The coal in the hearth glowed gold...Read On

Thin ice

Love is Like walking on thin ice.  You're aware of the cold water underneath but then you see the other shore And think... I can do it.  Just before falling into the deadliest waters.  Love is The most beautiful, poisonous flower.  It seems so perfect,  So spotless. You reach for it and think...  I'll avoid the thorns. Just before one tiny, little one stings you.  Love is A painful memory of...Read On

The Voyeur Note

The song flowed through me as I once moved through you, deeper than any known note, without pride or question. It sang of something so distant, a bond I wanted to touch or torch, maybe I was just jealous, craving a tie so sacred. Maybe it just proves that my heart is too voyeuristic. I can almost feel it with my fingertips, on the precipice of what I have lost. I can almost sing in a...Read On

Mini-break to Scotland

A night I will never forget.

A mini-break in Scotland You planned it from the start One thing on your mind that night You planned to steal my heart   You found the perfect way With the story that you told To pop that special question With a diamond set in gold   A cosy little restaurant A table set for two How was I supposed to know You’d make my dream come true   Our love is something we can share It’s...Read On

Poetic Kaleidoscope

From the kaleidoscope of a poet Music has broken my heart's violin What remains is the silence of the strings As swans shed tears on a ballet pond Of dead choruses in my ear As the silence of dawn breaks With a resin of snow falling Harps of the heavens sings A love song calling In silence as the winds call A zephyr's kiss on a rose's dew           ...Read On

New & True

Cuddling by a warm fire in the coldest of winters with the one you love can be very sexy indeed.

  Delighted to be here by the fire with you with nothing else to say with nothing else to do but to hold you near to endear you to my heart which won't be the end but will be the start of a night of love to renew our vows.   After all these years I'm certain you know how -   how to make love sing better than the band that sang Twist & Shout  and I Want to Hold Your Hand.   ...Read On

Starry Eyes

Sending electric pulses through my whole body

Big starry eyes Show midnight skies So full of dreams Oh how her heart beams My heart pitter patters ‘Tis me who matters How can it be I just loved thee? A high school crush Turns me to mush Those big brown eyes Are full of our skies To love and to play Every day Two kids on the beach Always in reach Those big brown eyes Now fill my eyes With tears of sweet joy You know, I’m the boy ...Read On

In the Stillness

In the stillness I reach for you, gripping the sheets where you once lay, holding the pillow that you once laid  your head upon close to my chest. Jumping up, I walk to look out into space,  shivering slightly, still dreaming of when I felt safe with big strong arms wrapped around me,  muscles bunched up under my soft delicate touch. Dreams are all I have now. In the stillness I can...Read On

Image of you

I am silent.  You move around the room,  touch, breathe, live... And I watch you.  I bite my pencil,  Filling pages with your shade, with your essence.  Sometimes I'm so lucky  I feel your eyes in mine... And I blush.  I look down, I keep writing  as you sit next to me.  Scarlet is the color of my cheeks As the object of my desire smirks.  And in those moments of silence  I feel the...Read On
