Love Poems

Love poems and poetry is a hugely popular section, proving romance isn't dead! They are literary compositions written with an intensity or beauty of language more characteristic of verse / poetry, than of prose.

The Cut

The knife cuts smoothly, but it cuts all the same

For Justine The world’s sharpness, like a cutting knife, Is smooth and deadly, and it seems no harm Is done to Love, now soft and warm, Until, in the way of things, there is strife. Then after the the cutting - Love to life  – I lean upon you, Dear, in my alarm, And feel safe as if guarded by a charm Against the stab of fate, and of life And after the storm passes, here is still The...Read On

Our Banjo

Of a silhouette on my mind's lampshade On the futon of a soft crouton's pillow  Laying me down to sleep on our plushette In our hammock of a rocking chair With dreams of steps in an eternal garden On the river without time as our love ages Like fine wine as ribbons twine in your hair And as the dusk of winter fell a snow On flakes of newborn shawls We kiss away the blacken wrath Of...Read On

Layers of Love

A tiny clench of the stomach, Confirming that -  The 'look' is returned Mouths, gasp open across a crowded room. The sudden glance away Afraid, not wanting to blush - An inner smile triggers The earthquake on luscious lips. Too shy to pursue To see if -  A few steps towards the kitchen Driven to the safety beyond. A tap on the shoulder Frozen in time -  A glance over the shoulder and...Read On

Together

I need you to know  how truly precious you are,  that when I feel lost in darkness  you are my North Star.  I need you to feel  you'll always be safe in my embrace,  that I'll let nothing ever harm you  or wipe the smile from your flawless face.  Soon all the hurt and pain  will be a fading memory,  because I've glimpsed a future where  you'll always be together with me.  Sharing new...Read On

Falling Away

Without you, there is no me.

I look out into the dark abyss of my shattered life. The pieces adrift on the miasma of broken dreams. My body trembles with the loss of loving you. My mind a foggy haze of what was and what will never be. My tears streak the midnight blackness as I close my eyes to my memories. My heaving bosom and quaking breath the only movement, the only sound. I look to the dark sky stretching out...Read On

Pagliacci Tears

Spinning yarn of lore fables Of a rustic fool on a string Attired in my clown regalia Crying with Pagliacci tears Of your infidelity By charming a costume patch And you with foible of panache Like the Devil's mustache Sipping wine from a carafe With a soul of Armageddon Giving my heart contusions As my words fade into obscurity Sinking in my drunken euphoria By letting myself...Read On

Why Would You Love?

Love for love's sake

If you must love me, let it have no motive Except for love's sake only. Never say 'I love her for her smile—her look—her way Of loving, and her pleasure — or for a trick of thought That falls in well with yours, and with it brought A sense that all will be right one sweet day'— For these things are fleeting and, Beloved, may Change or be changed—and love, so taught, May be untaught in...Read On

No Other Place

Our passion stirred

  When I think of her, my heart burns When I think of her, my cock stirs When my heart burns and my cock stirs  I have no other thoughts to yearn When she dreams, her mind does glow When she thinks, her core does flow  When her mind does glow and her core does flow  There are no other thoughts to know When we caress, our hearts are heard  When we kiss, our passion stirred When our hearts...Read On

Better To Forget

We did it all for love.... After winter's first breath exhales like the softest phantom pain, something brought you back to me down in the valley where no one remembers what we have lost, no one remembers our names in  slow motion corteges of bodies and endless shimmering lights. I may have taken it well enough after the last time you left, it was better to not remember how you looked in...Read On

How do I love you?

Counting the ways

For Justine How do I love you? How shall I count the ways?  Is there depth, or breadth or height,  or aught that to measurement yeilds?  How should I begin to measure it?    Shall I love you by quota, to the mark of the day, or by the standard or some man-made measurement?  Would that be right, or do?    I love you purely, or as pure as passion allows a woman like me to love. ...Read On

A gift from afar

The beauty of the season is in one's heart

A carpet of pure snow flakes do here lie Among the grass, icy dew dissolves, The fractals, each one unique and fleeting Colours, a prism in which the light evolves   A little bird, ‘gainst a thorn his breast yields Hark! His winter song, his feathers are rent Blood from his heart, soak’d that we may see On crimson path, the winter – heaven sent   Nought but the silence of the...Read On

As she goes

The memory pains as the hour pleased

It wouldn't have lasted long anyway as years of experience made clear. But the end came to it so abruptly. It was suddenly all ended, that love. And how strong the scents were, what a voluptuary bed we lay in, as we pleasured our bodies together. An echo from those days of indulgence, came back to me, a passing memory, something from the flames of the life we shared: I raked over the...Read On

My Yap

At times my yap dosen't fit to tight For I get loose in my verbal strings  Often not expressing my love  By falling into an abyss of dark With an albatross of rum at my neck Poetically framing my obtuse pen With arcane feathers of sin Laying waste to a sweet as yee While the devil inspires my fires With brandied crepes Suzette        ...Read On

Cupidity

Take everything away. Leave me With vacant, desolate and hollow. I want blank I want cold, smooth, frozen fields of snow Virginal Pure and untouched. An empty canvas Awaiting a palette of color. Calling out to me Naked in raptures thoughts Love As each brush stroke falls....Read On

The longing persists

Desire and fulfilment elude me

    Her eyes meet mine in dreams     Where what was lost is found;     What does not appear     Is the wind's singing     Which was her voice,     Sweeter and more plangent     Than birdsong at dawn          Let me be no nearer     In the dream kingdom     Of loss     Where what was is no longer     And what will be is not yet:     And all our dreams burn down     Like paper.     No...Read On

Saudade

You touch me and it's like a memory that I have yet to make, a nostalgia I should not yet know. There was a word for this, something that encapsulated  an entire history that may be impossible to write about. I can feel it before your hand withdraws, the stone that my heart will become, the ache to be enveloped in your heat if only for another moment, even if we both know that's not enough. ...Read On

His Touch

He entered and I couldn't breathe I looked into his eyes and felt relieved The silk of my skin was what he craved from the start.  Mine was to be a piece of his luscious, personal art.  He decided I was his. He chose to take me.  I wondered why, but then I stopped thinking... I just wanted to be.  My clothes disappeared under his nails  And there I was... Naked.. My whole body ready to...Read On

Her

Passionate Kisses Smouldering gaze punctuated with long walks Wind swept hair and mischievous smile Tender heart and calming presence And I suddenly find myself wondering when she started ruling every waking thought of mine I forget myself when I think of us I look at the sky muttering a silent prayer in her absence to protect her and keep her safe With yearning in my eyes and my...Read On

Just a little fun

Just having a bit of fun with this one

I pop out for lunch, Or maybe it was brunch. I go to the local, But it was quite vocal. I order some food, Hope it’s going to be good. I talk to the old dear, Ask for a nice cold beer. I take a sip, it was quite bitter, But it was quite a heavy hitter. I spot this girl from afar, From my pedestal at the bar. She seems kinda nice, Hope she ain’t cold as ice. I decide shall I make a...Read On

love itself is dead

Love, like all organic things, grows, and dies

They told me, my darling, they told me love was dead, And brought me bitter news to hear and saltier tears to shed. I wept as I recalled how often you and I Had tired the night with talking until the sun was in the sky. And now that our love is lying, like death across my breast,          a handful of grey ashes, now long ago at rest Still is that clamant voice, the memories awake; For...Read On

On Way To Paradise

With petals of a Burmese parasol hung On the way to paradise near Rangoon Ancient sampans swayed on river Yangon With strings of a saung-gauk song Rising above the tropical mist   With an essence of lychee tea water Where I fell in love with my inamorata On this side of the Asian quarters Neath a pagoda of a lotus moon As golden bells toll a dawning rung Where the lanterns were strung On the...Read On

Before Skies Were Gray

Before there was us there was you

Before there was us there was you And when you were young all was new. Do you think about that. I still do. Before there was us there was you. *** Before there was us there was me And when I was young I was free. But I dreamed about you on my knee. Before there was us there was me. *** Before I brought tears to your eyes They had visions of stars in the skies And they...Read On

Blonde On Blue

Two colours,nothing more, and yet they invoke a world of beauty.

Out of the fields of night, A flower; fragrant, fair and new Emerges in the mystic light To blossom blonde on blue. Beneath her eyelids darkness dwells, A restless darkness, deeply warm. Whispering words of love it tells Of passion's all consuming storm. The sun, above her now ascending, Caresses the land where she was born, With the breezes all attending, He grants her the colour...Read On

The Silence That She Loves

A hymn to the goddess Meretseger

Upon the rippling desert sands How silently she stands, How solemn, how lonely, how serene As she has ever been. Daughter of the Sun’s distant youth, In beauty and in truth, What peer has she among the fair, But then, what does she care? At evening, as the Sun declines, In warm and supple lines Of pale vermillion hue; She is a goddess born anew. With all the subtleties of shade ...Read On

My Dark Angel

In my cups hounded by ghostly boos' fasting With the Devil's dictionary at my foot As my pecker squirms a shadow's casting Of whores present and basting  In the alcoves of my mind's ossuary As Mephistopheles stokes my cock's shovel On a freight train bound for Hades As a lonesome whistle turns the wheels Roll on big steam engine to my past Carrying the soul of my dark angel   With...Read On
