True Love

I am saved from the darkness of depression by the constancy of her love

To the one without whose constancy and love I would be lost forever in despair. ***** Inexorably I can feel myself falling Into the darkness that always lurks, sinister And out of sight, there at the corner of my mind, A place of demons and unnameable horrors, Where my worst nightmares wait, eager to claim my soul. Like a condemned man on the way to the scaffold, I see the...Read On

Mind over matter

Day after day Pain rips through her body, Relentlessly Pecking away at her soul, Her sanity. Sharp stabs, Like a dull knife Sinking into her flesh, Crippling cramps, Tensing every muscle. At times She feels defeated, That she can’t take it anymore, Wanting to give up, Give in to despair. But as darkness falls, A small voice in her mind whispers, Reminding her of the paradox,...Read On

Piece of My Heart

I gave you a piece of my heart Forevermore You gave me a piece of your heart Such treasure The greatest gift I ever received Then you pulled it back You didn’t tell me I was too blind to see Blinded by a love I had never known before A love I will never forget A love I will never regret You were my dream come true And you were true And real And genuine I came to you across the miles...Read On

The Bay Window

When the aperature of my life blinds out the light  And the sirens wink in my waking sleep, I look out through the bay window and see dying kelp As the tides come in on my epitome, Washing away marrow of my bones Lying alone in a box of man made sins With sea chest of confessions scribed with squid ink, Now the sirens caress my wilting image Of remembrances of shadows I have...Read On

Dream Angel

So many times I think of you, It's like a dream come true. I never want this dream to end Because you're so sweet, So kind, So...Yummy in so many ways. I just want a little taste, A tiny lick, A nibble, To taste your sweetness. When I think of you, I just can't help myself. I must love you You're like a little kitten Who needs some loving. To be looked after, To be held. I wonder if you...Read On

Is Love Dead?

I'm so sad. Is our love dead? So confused. Don't know what to do. My heart is breaking over you. Leaving pain and doubt. Hurting the ones we truly care about. Although I will never feel any regret. Not since the first day we met. I don't know what to do. Have no words to say. The last thing I want to do is stay away....Read On

True Beauty

Beauty comes from within...

From out of the Mists She comes like a dream A living, breathing fantasy If you know what I mean. Flowing, long wavy hair Kind of reddish in hue Cute button nose Eyes of cerulean blue. Long, elegant neck To high, plump breasts Don’t you just want To lay your head upon her chest? Tiny, narrow waist To gently flared hips I know where I’d like To take a few nips. Legs that...Read On

You Are Mine

They are words to be carved into the marrow, not carefully inked on skin, but another could feel it thrumming through your wrists or if fingers lace with unleashed hunger around your neck It lives in the blood and speaks against any and all premonition, all those who approach the delicate places you've gradually revealed to me. It would be wrong to tell you that I love you, to...Read On

Love Words

Words I love to hear...

Whisper to me softly As you hold me close Sweet gentle words of love The ones I love to hear the most Cradle my head Against your warm chest As I lay within your arms The place I love the best Gently kiss my brow Running fingers down my spine Tell me that you love me Words I love to hear all the time Hold me in your arms Snuggled safe against your side As we both allow ...Read On

Walking Away

I still miss you so much I think about you every time I look at the sky Some days I can't even function without crying I scream I get angry I hate myself I miss you most in the spring For every flower has lost its color Every blue sky seems so gray Every bird seems to mock me with our song I miss you during the summer For the sky reminds me of your eyes The warm breeze is your breath...Read On

Time

Your time is up and you are at the pearly gate Waiting for St. Peter to decide your final fate Will you be judged on all the things that you have done Will it be on the things that you could have but left undone I didn’t have enough time or it went by way too fast Too late for excuses your final die has been cast Your mind is racing through all the good deeds in your life Then...Read On

When I Stayed

Nothing seems to stir outside tonight, amplifying the stillness we share, your head cradled in my arm's crook, hairs slightly tickling with each breath. This is when I'd usually leave, gather clothes from the floor's pile that are tangled in all the ways we just were together. I would usually move like a thief throughout the dark house, noting how our possessions would mesh together...Read On

Adam and Eve--From poems of Farewell

Adam saying farewell to Eve

Our garden is overgrown. The grass is tall and weeds choke out the sun. We stand here in the shade looking for a path through all of this, seeing, how, in our innocence, and frightened of aloneness, we held each other’s hearts too tight, and now, it hurts so deep in us, this holding on, we cannot speak. The fruit you offered me that afternoon was good-- ...Read On

Drifter

Not lost

Somewhere, I lost it But I’m glad it’s gone No need to fret Over what I’ve done wrong There is a freedom When you don’t need to try A certain freedom To just say good-bye No effort needed Nothing missed Light of heart Contented to drift Fine if you’re here But not for too long Fine if you’re gone I’ll just move on How did I get here? Not really sure Will this go on? Will my...Read On

Sshhh

Snuggled deep under my warm covers I can feel the weight of my eyelids. Sleep so near, yet just out of reach. Sshhh, listen closely do you hear it? Hear the sound of my heart beating. A sound so simple yet it is such a gift. Each beat is the beautiful sound of life So I ask just as I drift for one more day. Sshhh listen closely to hear its beating I could get helplessly lost in its...Read On

Red Umbrella In The Rain

An acrostic poem of love and pain

Red umbrella in the rain Empty drops of searing pain Danger comes from threats above  Undermining thoughts of love Makes me want to will away Bleeding that may come her way Random cries of tender grace Etching hearts without a trace Lilting voices singing out Lending faith with every shout Anguish spreading over me  Ill prepared as we might be Nonetheless I feel your grief ...Read On

The Mystery Of Love

What is the mystery called joy? A question I've often pondered, During the long hours of the night. In my melancholy, too oft Joy seems to be beyond my reach, A mirage that fades into dust Just as I think I can grasp it. So life becomes a denial Of all that I so vainly seek, Leaving me alone in the dark, Clutching at straws, and each false dawn Bringing me nought but...Read On

As Time Slips Away

Tick tick tick tock....

Ticking of the clock Marking time as I wait Releasing a shuttered breath Wishing my fears would abate More minutes tick by As my anxiety mounts Wringing of my hands First impressions count Clock hands have moved Many minutes have gone by A loud knock at the door Breath released in audible sigh Clicking of heels As I walk across the tile Reminiscent of the ticking clock ...Read On

I Am In Love With Your Words

Your words are always an adventure.

I’ve watched you, Addicted to the loveliness of your mind, The adventure of your words, The beauty you give to those who can’t see. The sky is your canvas. With the universe You create, Always something new. Your chosen words are textures That can be felt. Each letter dances gracefully, Flutters over my skin. Sensation ripens To a vista of colours, Some are emotions I've never felt, All...Read On

See her

There are days She feels so lost, So alone, Wanting to cry out, See me! See all hidden inside, All the passion, Desire, love. Understand That below a quiet surface Deep waters run. Yet no words escape her lips, The silent screams Only echoing in her soul, Tormenting her. She longs, Deep and profoundly, To be swept up, Found by him That will desire her body, Want to cherish,...Read On

Song of the Succubus

Some myths say that a Succubus was once an angel whose heart was broken.

He wants to save me  With his sweetness  Envelope me  In the warmth of his love  He sees a bird, rare  A broken wing  A hidden spirit  Lost  Caught in the fear  Of possible flight With his prayers  And the touch of his hands  An infusion of his spirit  The curve of his smile  The music in his voice  The feel of his heart  Beating next to mine  As he leads me in this dance  ...Read On

Desperate for her love

Lying here alone The dark feels so heavy and cold I can feel all of my insides so ripped out and torn The air is thick with my pain and despair I need you to hold me I need you to care Take me in your arms again and make my icy skin warm Kiss me again and again and make me forget it all Touch me and make me surrender to you Strip me and let your lips see me through my fear ...Read On

Supposed To Be

A promise...

Our hearts beating together In a rhythm as old as time My body cradles yours As it pulses deep within mine I hold you close to me Not wanting this to end When I am within your arms It is so easy to pretend Pretend we belong to each other That we do not have to lie As you remove yourself from within me I turn away, quietly begin to cry “Please don’t,” you say, I promise you ...Read On

Threshold

I wasn't prepared To love you I wasn't prepared To stay I've tucked and I've rolled Myself through The lion's share Of my days One foot out the door Purse in my hand Keeping all parts of me safe Watching for signs That things have gone south Ready to make my escape So let me stand  At the threshold Still in But not far from out Accept I'm my best Close to freedom Rather than...Read On

Utopia

That night we didn't realize, We were making memories, While finding our Utopia. Lounging in the green grass, Under the twinkling stars, That blanketed the sky. Hours passed by as we Held hands and talked about Our love, our lives, our future. So many unspoken promises. I knew right then that, My heart would follow. It was that night that We consummated Our forever love. Kissing,...Read On

Follow Your Heart

Pondering over the hours we have desired each other, I realize the stupendous desire I have for you. Our love is like a drug, lusting for you Your touch Your tender kisses Succumbing my desires for you Drives me insane. Enhancing my addiction for you. Knowing if I follow my dreams, I shall take that step, Move forward, follow my heart although I will break others. ...Read On

The Last Lyre

The moment our eyes meet, a caterpillar gets thousand colour's wing. The moment you whisper my name, all birds stop tweeting. The moment our fingers interlace, the rose buds open up petals. The moment you pull me closer, a high-tide swamps all walls. As you caresses my back, the rivers wait breathlessly. A cyclone strikes my senses, as your face get closer to me. As...Read On

Ode de Love

Let’s write of love And make sure it rhymes There aren’t many words It won’t take much time Love fits like a glove An oldie but goodie Love comes from above Like bird crap on your hoodie Of course, love and dove A traditional pair And how about shove With some pulling of hair? Shove from above Is a favorite of mine And love I dream of Though bad grammar, rhymes fine. ...Read On

Fatuous Love

Innocence In a worldly woman Of just a certain age. Some see a girl. Some see a woman. Some see what they want to see. I've never really seen her. Online friendships are defined by the innocent anonymity. And her worldly innocence Is so compelling To me. Seeking so little and finding so much, In the tenuous corridors  Of virtual electronic hallways, Where we share our simple Yet...Read On

Ravens Caw

What the ravens see When veil of dark soon comes over me In my eternal sleep I will dream of thee As I rest in silent quarters of my box With whispers of your lasting love Carrying me down the long trail To the meadows and falling springs Of staircases to distant shores  Beneath the chandelier of stars And here we kiss the night I pass Then you weep and teardrops fall  ...Read On
