Play

For my beloved . . .

Sit beside me at the play Your fingers laced with mine Kiss me as the lights go down Willing captives for a time Join me in this curtained world Created and made real Scenes portrayed and taking form Like stars at dark revealed Tendrils reach and wrap around Enveloping our thoughts Lifting us into their realm Fantasy with tickets bought   The love we share Feels deepened Plush seats, the...Read On

Flare

Your heart pounds against my ear  in the suddenly still aftermath, an oceanic rhythm in skin, rising to a quiet warm crest. I could be listening to music from another life, I can't tell if it's mine or yours, it could be the soft waves reaching the shore of some unknown old country. It tells of all that's unseen now. The marks that will live on this flesh, I only sense their new fire in...Read On

A Poisonous Thorn

He's now a poisonous thorn....

The days go by They turn to weeks The weeks to months With tear stained cheeks Most days are good I get by just fine Even though... Your still on my mind Then suddenly It hits me again Takes me back To the anguish within The pain I feel I cannot explain So deep within It just will not wane I struggle still With how this could be How you could do this  So deliberately destroy me ...Read On

Perhaps - II

Can we really heal?

"Time heals all wounds", you said to me. "Perhaps", I replied, doubtful. You were right, of course. Even after the years together, Even after all the sharing, Even after all the intimacy, Even after all the laughter, Even after all the tears, Even after the sudden ending. Even after the ebbing, hollow conversation which followed. You were right, of course. Time does heal all wounds. ...Read On

Flow

What makes your pulse quicken? Could it be that unspoken bond, unfurling between us like a soft coil invisible and yet tangible in these tender moments? As I look into your eyes, you are all that exists to me in this moment. All other senses muted imperceptibly as my pupils take still frames of you to keep with me when we’re apart. The lights dimmed low hands grasping for each other...Read On

Shadows In My Gin

In conversations with mutual acquaintances And dust mites taking flight in spite Casting but a shadow in a pantomime sort of way Scripting in long-hand words poetically concave At a sensual hour in residence of a spire As bells chime a chorus of zephyrs' choir In communion with castaway poets As a spirit within the tower touch my soul And as her tongue unfurls and lips kiss my fold ...Read On

Better

NOT about Verbal

It's probably better I heard myself say It's probably better To leave it this way   I'm good at ignoring Like nothing is there I'm good at pretending That nothing is there   Farewell to whatever I've archived our chats I can't quite delete them I'm still a pack rat   Bon voyage, bye-bye The wind waves my scarf As I stand still watching The ship leaves the dock....Read On

The Extra Mile

Forest

Have I seen this tree before? Or have I circled back? I wish I’d thought to mark the spot To keep myself on track   I saw a bird That looked like moss Grayish mossy green Hopping on a lichen stone The pattern stayed with me   What can I leave And save myself Thus still remain intact? To make me shine in memory To polish up my lacks   What way to guarantee that I Can be...Read On

...And Whatnots

As an umbra of prose cast dots and whatnots On a valiance of dusk as my lips succor remorse A shadow of myself lust in tomes of omnibus 'Tween dark pages of ominous Suckling in a nest of your breasts I confess The showers of love these midnight hours Giving gust to the winds on due course Casting dots and whatnots  ...Read On

Triangles

Triangles are a shape They are a symbol They have three sides You, her and I.   Three years, three sides O how the time flies What started off as just friends Found us in a war zone of lovers First she and I Then my foolish heart wanted more Complicated is the word For you, her and I.   Three lives thousands of miles apart Found each other in one familiar spot Only to find ...Read On

Sleepless Nights

Lying here snuggling with the nightie you left in my truck.

Rolling over in my bed. Looking at your smiling face on my phone, Remembering the nights we have spent together. The feelings we shared, All the gentle touches, Soft kisses, Both big and little smiles, Hearty laughs, Painful tears, Enjoying the high you give to me. Hoping it never ends, Enjoying the view, While soaring over the clouds. Your sweet angelic voice calling my name. Bringing me...Read On

Right Where I Need to Be

I'm right where I need to be -Gary Allen

Life pulls us in so many different directions  But we always seem to find right where we belong  Even if the miles separate us  I know right where I need to be  I know I belong to you  Right where I need to be is in  Your arms  But with the distance I know   Right where I need to be is in your heart  Miles apart I still I know  Right where I belong     ...Read On

Broken Promises

Empty words and broken promises are the only memories I have left of you

We said it was forever - said we'd never part, I knew it was a line, but I still gave you my heart.   Said you would stay, promised you would, You chose to walk away, I knew you would.   You're not there anymore, my dearest friend, I hate to say this, but it is our end.   By day you're one person, by night another, Neither of them has anything to do with each other.   I sit here...Read On

Lover

I dance to you and tempt you with my heat. Smiling, your eyes crinkle in that way I love. I lose my head as I swirl with the music. I feel you watch me use my hands to motion for you to come closer so I can  whisper in your ear.   Silky words causing sensations so swift and sensual that you pull me on top of  you and we kiss and talk in each other's mouth. Intimacy, a language we pretend...Read On

Dig Your Roots

You gotta dig your roots-Florida Georgia Line

I grew up in a small town  And no matter where I am  I remember where I come from  Country music is the soundtrack to my life  Falling in love under the stars  Taking our time  We were both nervous and shy  The first time we made love under the stars  I saw fireworks  And it wasn't even the Fourth of July  But summer faded into fall  And you were gone  So now I'm left with...Read On

Diligere

An exploration into online friendships and relationships, despite distance.

You have seen me for all that I am. Covered in the darkest, unfathomable essence of the night, I have bared all of my soul to you in the softest of tones. I have given you access to all of my memories. The most vulnerable pieces of me were yours for the taking, and placing my trust in you to the forefront, I let you explore. I was scared and frightened, that you would see the damage and...Read On

All Of You

I want to memorize your scent, Like the moment before it rains.    I want to memorize every sound you make,  So when I hear that rhythm play, my body aches.   I want to memorize your taste,  Like fresh strawberries on my lips.    I want to memorize the way you look,  So every time I close my eyes, I see perfection.    I want to memorize your touch, Like sheets draped over my bare skin.    I...Read On

Prison of Emotions

A desire for a friend that cannot be fulfilled, is like a prison of emotions.

I feel it deep inside. Bubbling and spinning around. Emotions that are building.  Trying to escape their prison. Trying to make a sound. Emotions that battle for control, of a torn and battered soul. Trying to do the right thing, when the wrong thing feels so right. Trying to be a gentleman, when the curve of your bare thigh crosses my sight. It should never be this hard,  to maintain...Read On

Kiss

Lips touching lips... that is a kiss...

Fluttering of wings Rat racing inside Short of breath Weakening knees That's how I feel every time   Conflicting minds Complicated feelings Constricting pains Presence missing That's how I feel right now   Wishing you are here For me With me Together That's what on my mind today   More than just a kiss But a soulful touch of Someone special.    ...Read On

Crawling Back

Everything seems Out of my reach Like Water spiralling down a drain An empty promise of rain Conversations from yesterday Music playing too far away Half awake, half asleep It doesn't take much For him to seep Easily into my mind Thoughts spin and drift And effortlessly lift And I turn, intending to Fill the cavernous rift With a snowdrift of sugar Only to feel emptiness...Read On

An Angel Left Her Wings

Every person knows how it feels when you lose that special angel.

I have this little angel. For me, she left her wings. She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings. She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs. She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have. Her face, it is so perfect, she's sweet and soft and pure. Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure. She tries her very hardest to please and do what's...Read On

I can't do that, but I can do this
