Dancing Upon The Clouds

In nightly joy, my love and I take flight on wings of love, and dance upon the clouds

Come stand with me on the cliffs in early morning As the sun rises over the edge of the world, And watch as the sea birds leave their rocky perches High up on the crags, to soar out over the sea, Floating in wide lazy circles on the warming air, Or skimming just above the waves, free as the wind, And tell me that you do not envy their freedom, Unbound by those forces that bind us...Read On

Flavors of the Storm

every season is different

I am the storm. I can be gentle, I can be torrential. I have many flavors. I am the gentle summer rain, The light soothing breeze, The warm embrace That brings peaceful friendship. I am the refreshing spring shower, The tingling chill, the sudden wetness That licks and tantalizes the new buds Into a luscious and vibrant flowering. I am the hard winter downpour, ...Read On

The Vampire

The vampire tried to bite me, in a dream I had once  Instead, he bit my finger I woke up with my heart pounding  My finger hurt The vampire was someone I adored  He glided through my days like a slim, dark silhouette  He was always quiet – quiet, I thought Because he was elegant and reserved  But quiet he was, because he had no soul I tried to kiss the vampire one night  We...Read On

Scream

In the dark, I found my light

Tears falling down my face, and I feel like a disgrace. It is dark, cold and lonely. Feeling the monster inside me, it's killing me, and I am powerless. The dream that never was. This killer taking my soul, my faith in love, I want it back. Screaming but not heard. I hate having you near, and not be able to say the words. A bottle stronger than me. Now, in the corner I only guess,...Read On

Love's Zenith - an acrostic poem.

A song of eternal love

What can I say about my darling love? In beauty of form, beyond divining, Lovelier far than the fairest flower, Like Helen, she could melt the hardest heart, And her dear face would launch ten thousand ships. Nowhere have I seen wonders to compare, Dull he would be who could remain unmoved, Even the birds sing of her divine grace. Life in her presence is true happiness, ...Read On

Into the wind

What the wind took... wont ever be the same

Every time things seem serious, we pull away. Yet we know nothing is serious. nothing in this place is real. Meeting you left me in a dreamlike state. always in a daze... then I woke. Scared, with a monster under my bed, shivers up my spine. Being with you faded away, into yet another dream. Let's cast this into the wind and live once...Read On

I Feel Loved

I feel loved, whenever I receive a text from you. I feel loved, when we go on long walks on the beach. I feel loved,  when I smell your aroma. I feel loved, when your warm breath caresses my face. I feel loved, when your arms wrap around my waist. I feel loved, when you treat me like your princess. I feel loved, when your kisses smother me. I feel loved,  when...Read On

The Other Familiar

One last companion piece, this time for my second Lush poem

My touch once turned you to stone, folded the intricate universe within you when longing couldn't keep me here anymore. I still read your pages by candlelight to see if the words revealed more to you, golden glows flicker against ink that may as well have been blood. You wanted me to memorize every night, to see my own silhouette in loops, slants and hexameter flows. But this map is a...Read On

Now

Do we?

Do we now know When passion has passed After unwinding Our limbs’ tangled mass? Long after the lure of the words To and fro The mental gymnastics Propelling us prone After seeing the image In each other’s eyes Through a mirror of fantasy Step into life What we’ve created By acting it out Do we want to move forward Now that it’s now? What do we know, and What more is there? But harder...Read On

One Love Only

A few lines to the one who lights my world and gives me joy

One Love who Gives to me Such joy and more, The one for whom I've Sworn to cross the dark Styx Else grow wings, and fly to heaven, To rest beside one, who most gentle fate So kindly has sent, from henceforth to be mine. My angel, in her dear arms alone can happiness again Light my dark world. Humbly I crave some sign That she returns my love, my own true mate ...Read On

Marked Again

A companion piece to my first poem published on Lush.

I wonder if you still feel me inside, if the winter traced along and marked your being as it did mine because certain threads still remain That convinced me our limbs could curl and spiral together, your frame indistinguishable from my own, never to part or know the cold in our bones or be in another's shadow ever again. And anything that was ever held close, every beam of light...Read On

I Am Machine

Do you feel as time goes on that you have have begun to die? Twisted and decayed, Our minds start to go, My conscience dying along with everything else bit by bit. When you dream you can no longer fly, Everything you thought you knew, flew away from you. The blows you take, only feel like small stings. I am machine, I feel nothing, Automatic, non est humana. I am beyond caring,...Read On

This Moment

At this moment  I deposit  in my soul  these words  words that live  forever tattooed  in my heart  and in my mind  because if they only reside  in my mind  I run the risk  of them being forgotten  and if you are in my heart  there they never fade  I know you loved me  I know you did  I know I am  the most important  thing in your life  because you've shown me so  I admit that I loved...Read On

Left

being left what happens

What happens when the heart is left Behind beating All alone What happens when the loving ends The hurting starts And the dream is lost What happens when the words stop The silence begins And the pain sets in What happens when the love ends And the road ahead of you just stops What happens when you are left...Read On

The Treck Back to Love Again

The survival of those who had their love and trust betrayed

Return to me my precious one And I’ll return to you in spades. Come with me towards the sun Where neither love nor passion fade. The trip we’ll take through loves lost lives, Include those on lush whose hearts lie dark. Those with hearts cut deep by loves knives. ‘tis true time heals but the cut leaves it’s mark. Return to me my precious one And I’ll return to you...Read On

I know

I know you are hurt. That you think you are ice. A thousand walls put up, Soldiers guarding every small cracks, Ready to defend the Enemy of memory, of what use to be, of new, possible love. I know you think you are Frozen forever, That you cannot truly love again, As before. I know you think you are monstrous, A beast, Undeserving of love From anyone and everyone. ...Read On

101 Words: Unsaid

Think it’s best left Unsaid How you stroked the depths of another Finding release While I slipped under slumber’s spell Ten thousand miles away I should let it go Unspoken How the beast that pummeled her raw Marks you as a man and Trains the primal desire that will take me When summer sets and autumn arrives again. ‘tis not a secret when things Unmentioned Are known...Read On

Message in a Bottle

In a bottle to the sea, my dreams are placed.

You're my friend and I am pleased. Be in my thoughts and in my heart;  happiness is within our grasp. A heart so pure, writes these verses, and they will be tossed. Into a bottle they go, at the sandy shore, hoping my dreams to grow. Distances I do not see, and in my life,  a beacon you are. This message to the stars, perhaps to give us a chance. Otherwise ... it's just time. Longing...Read On

A Walk

A Walk on the Beach

"Take a walk with me," I say Holding out my hand Your fingers touch and mesh with mine We head out on the sand Where the water meets the shore Its grains so cooly packed Leaving pointed footprints Trailing from our backs You look at me expectantly As if I need to talk I see the worry in your face Believing something’s wrong Now I start to wonder How to calm your fears Erase the...Read On

Dun

I stand before you crying Hanging my head in shame This isn't what I wanted My love is not a game My intentions are to leave To slip into the mix And live among the chaos What's broken can't be fixed And as I turn to walk away You reach out and grab my hand I stop, completely frozen and, now, I understand Nothing Absolutely nothing Your hand is ice cold Mirroring my heart I no longer...Read On

Today I am free

Free in love, individuality is what opens true self love, and a wonderful place

Today we are free, today we woke up from a beautiful dream. One wants a love story, which only happens once in a lifetime and we wonder... is that possible? Today I was strong, today I smiled, I laughed, and I did not cry. Today we are free, today we woke up from a beautiful dream. A memory tattooed in my heart, your name runs through my being, and your voice a beautiful melody sang. ...Read On

Stop Playing With My Heart

Stop playing games I was yours I trusted you Gave all of me Devoted my mind, body, heart and soul You never wanted it You played your games You broke my heart Waited to hear the truth As it never came I only had love for you Now it is once again buried deep inside Reasons unknown to me  You kept up this charade I know the truth I forgive you Now I give you one...Read On

Sylvia

Ariel’s hoofbeats pounding Along the trail she flies Escaping Hughes and heartbreak The sorrow in her life And as the beast moves faster Head down, she trusts her guide A veil of calm descending On the world that rushes by Mane through fingers grasping Loins grip to the ride Holding onto sanity By verses in her mind Together they are moving Towards something, yet away Creator of such...Read On

21...

The Ace and Queen, never to be paralleled by 1+1=2

Cars, music, and wordplay, this is how things started. Together in the distance, but never in real life.   First you needed me, then it was my turn. Both in times of need, bonded in a game of 21. Blackjack, and for the time of the game, we won. Now reality faces us. No more cards. We will never be more complete than 21 The deck is finished, the game to an end. On to the sunset you...Read On

Touching Leaves

The winds bring to me, whispering kisses and soft touching leaves of sensual love breeze romantic carousel  and wisp of floating stars in your hair, scent of you being there. Like a choir of trees the sycamores sing as your lips lay bliss on my fingers bring,  stirrings in the midnight hollow  where boughs confess my happiness. The winds bring to me,  my undying words and prose, ...Read On

Freedom

Walking in the shadows Never fitting in She is searching Capturing memories But never living For she's alone The desires in her mind Haunting her endlessly Clouding her reason Is it normal To give yourself Never being in control Is it accepted To need freedom Bound in ropes Is it a sin To worship another As He uses your body Will she be cast aside Hated Never understood ...Read On

The Moment

Did the moment pass you by. Too late, and the moment is gone. You had a moment, the two of you had a moment, didn't you. But it slipped away. Smiles shared, true happiness glowing from both as you lived the moment. The room, the meadow, the world, melted away, and you were there, in the moment. Complete, utter happiness in that moment. Was it at the bar where she brought you a...Read On

May I?

May I sit here by your side And just watch you be?  May I linger for a while Enjoying you with me? May I see you make that smile That you used to do?  The one where you look silly That we named after you? May I breathe the air you breathe As we share vintage wine? And may you tell the joke you loved That you told all the time? May you let the game blare on With decibels galore That...Read On

Signature

Your lips can be the signature, writing your name on me over and over again on every page between the shadows, the loving contrast to my darkness. Swaying together beneath Heaven's lid, the sky's silent infinity pierced by the starlight covering you and I, I'll think about it much later on, the innocence in such moments. The inescapable gravity that pulled your lips to mine, how...Read On

Kiss-a-me

Bring softly to me into the night carry me awhile to the edge  where the cornflowers grow, miracles from dew and sun bright and we over the moon in love. Walk gently into my soul and stow away the key to my heart, kiss-a-me free loneliness never part wishing you wishes and wishes you the sea of tranquility. As the tides bind and potpourri snows halos, walk gently into my soul  and...Read On
