Christmas In My Parallel World

Not being able to be together on Christmas Day.

I wake up  This Christmas morning You're beside me In my parallel world  Still asleep Your hair tousled Over your bare shoulder Your breathing soft A slight glow on your face From our night before I smile at the memory Of who we were,  At the warm comfort Of who we are And at the promise Of who we can be As I watch you sleep You're waking now Your eyes twinkling Your mouth opening To...Read On

The Second Meaning

Treading in the lake Listening for a soft whisper To drift over the horizon Until it reaches its breaking crescendo And echoes through the hills and valleys You feel powerless I am consumed by you Wanting to immerse myself In all that you are Shared cries from longing lovers We are shared heart beats Awaiting the...Read On

No words spoken. My Dream

A dream that came true

It’s late at night here at home, When suddenly I felt so all alone. “Nothing to do”, I heard myself say, Might as well just call it a day. As soon as I’d laid down on my bed, Strange thoughts began to fill my head. Some were good, some were bad, Some were other dreams that I’d had. Then someone must have been very kind, They put something wonderful in my mind. A picture began to...Read On

Never Again

Never again will I give my heart, Never again will I let it loose, Never again will I believe that someone could love me, Never again will I trust someone new. Never again will I be so stupid, Never again will I see so freely, Never again will I try to embrace that part of me, Never again since you broke my heart....Read On

Love's Revelation

A song of eternal love to the one who has given me her heart without reservation

The realisation has at last dawned on my dull and tardy mind That you have given me your heart wholly without reservation To the exclusion of all others. How could I have been so blind That I could fail to see the profound depth of your adoration The bounteous gift of love. Forgive me for being so unkind To doubt the sacrifice you have made without equivocation. These poor lines...Read On

Longing

Twinkling lights all around, Making the darkest time of year Lighter, brighter, Shining along with stars above On velvety Christmas skies. Warmth and beauty surrounds her, Songs of joy, Of peace on earth and to mankind. She sighs, bittersweetly, Part happy, part sad. She loves this time of year, When the world slows, People remembering To take some extra time For those they...Read On

When I Wake Up

When I wake up, I find my eyes searching, Longing for the eyes that make it okay, My hazel eyes looking for your chocolate brown. When I wake up, I find my fingers wishing, Wanting your hair to curl softly through my fingers, Wiping away all the pain from the ones that came before. When I wake up, I find my skin cold, Awaiting your touch to make its coolness warm, And feel your...Read On

Burn Again

I wonder if she notices, In certain times when darkness softens And the hard edges of silence Turn our whispers crystalline When she curls my body Into the silk parenthesis of her arms Laying tiny rivers of breath on my skin, How I crumple like an unread love letter, Old, yellow parchment Peppered with the mad scrawl Of some wild, hungry heart Gone destitute...Read On

The Distance Between

Shall I desist and let it go, or should I beg on bended knee to be forgiven. For what, I ask it over and over again, and still no answer comes, none makes sense. Hard to comprehend, hard to decide, knowing I have done nothing, and yet, I did something else why the distance the irreconcilable distance you place between us. Stars are dying, have died and yet have not left the night sky....Read On

Say Something

Say something, Because I'm giving up, After all the hurt and the heartache you caused me, And I'm still under your spell. Say something, Because my heart can't take any more, I loved you with all I was worth and more, I loved you instead of all else. Say something, Because my soul feels torn in two, Its like one part is me, And the other painted blue by you. Say something, ...Read On

If

In my heart ... The answer is I would

If I saw you tomorrow Would I give you my heart If I knew all the answers  Would I still ask the questions If I knew how much I would love you Would I still love so deeply If I thought I would get hurt Would I still choose this path Well tomorrow is here  I give you my heart I know some answers  But I have more questions I accept the hurt, for the love is greater I'm walking down...Read On

Lonely is the night

Lonely is the night' when you are not in sight I reach out for you I cry out your name who knew I could be so lonely who knew I would ever care so much but here I am lonely and longing for you I want your smile I want your kiss Your hand Your touch When I am alone in the night laying in the dark I'm thinking I'm dreaming, dreaming of you Your love I crave Your love I desire everyday...Read On

Window Pane

In utterance my quill scribes, Deepening dark romance  And footsteps meandering On cold stones of my fame.  Chilling the ink within my well Of swallows without voices And yellowing of my tomes, Sensuality betaking my soul. Night the halos sighed  Bequeathing me your splendor, Whispering translation of your love, Smiles returning my way. Then you cast off to greener lays,...Read On

Delicate Movements

I'll hear you calling out to me no matter where I am, the voice that can pass through walls, flicker among the candle's glowing wick before spreading deep below to crack through winter's ice. Marking the places we've imprinted entire lives on, lived before and after one another, energies that are the pieces we gave of ourselves, memory's residues mingling to make our shared worlds. ...Read On

The Sadness is Here Again

It's a happy time of the year,  I know you're busy at your job. For me there's lots of tears, You act like a complete snob. You shut down and run out of here, Do you even care how I feel? You're like a magician and disappear, For me it's an emotional ordeal. I say it doesn't bother me, What am I supposed to say? Your actions hurt to some degree, These are the days, I want to runaway. ...Read On

Fragile and Broken

I never asked

I never asked for anything, I really didn't want you to know. Didn't want a commitment, Wanted to take it real slow. Just wanted for us to talk, To share and to learn. To become friends we could count on Before anything else would burn. I didnt want a week or a month, No, I wanted so much more. Wanted to build something to last. Something we could hold on to. Wasn't...Read On

Frozen

I'm frozen. I cannot be thawed, It's forever winter for me. For my heart has been overtaken. I cannot feel my hands, They have stuck to my sides. My feet have stuck to the ground, I have lost all I loved. My soul speaks to no one, There's no one for me to miss. All have gone away, My mind is forever in stasis....Read On

Shards Of Glass

a few words about broken dreams

It is all just broken shards of glass now. The colors that shone so brightly are dull and dead. The patterns had made such beautiful images, how I miss them. Each image was a promise of endless bright days and nights to come. Now it’s just a jumble of jagged lines. There is no one with me to hear, but I bravely speak. “I should pick them up, try to clean up the mess.” I try, but they cut...Read On

My Bell Not Rung

Within cornices my established plum,  Nestled about my bookshop nest,  In sanity my bell not rung,  Melancholia the whippoorwill tweet. In scintilla my scribing ink flows, Fantasia of the erotic choir fold With kisses of sweet peppermint, Clanging the hour of hanging moss Scoring my writ of sensuality, Courtier of composing quill, Sweeping desires in my lust, Tiara Askew, my...Read On

Prisms

If the moment arrives where our hands unclasp, I would rather see you leave without a word, to never once glance back at the embers covering me as you exit. I would memorize everything, dissect every syllable and pause when your eyes could no longer meet where mine have always remained. Looking for possible codes and clues, buried like poisoned roots spreading. Turning every hallway...Read On

How Can It Be Me?

How can it be me, When I don't know where I stand? How can it be me, When I shy away from love's demand? How can it be me, That you choose to call your love? How can it be me, When I stop my good for bad? How can it be me, When I have gone wrong before? How can it be me, That deserves such love from you? How can it be me? Because darling, I just don't see....Read On

They Are My Feelings

Why is trust so lightly valued. So easily tossed. Into the wind. It takes but a callous comment, To hurt a feeling Or trample a heart. Maybe it should not have been So easily given, Right from the very start. When asked to stop! When hope is involved. To have those tender feelings Brandished about, Like a useless old rag. There is something precious lost, Never to...Read On

Like Prometheus

You would affront the Gods?

Warily you wander Much fonder to believe No conjurer can deceive Your heart cast in stone Alone, your defenses Inured by pretenses I cannot resist And insist that you yield To the magic I wield I cast an eye So wry, to be your foil Like a snake, you coil I lie in wait To sate your smolder If you would be but bolder I watch you rise So wise to my wiles You will truck no denials ...Read On

The ever recurring cycle of the heart

I am cosmic dust I spread across the sky You are a glowing nebula Your beauty makes me cry I’ll be a brown dwarf I’ll not be seen, nor be heard You are a twinkling pulsar In heavenly tales, you’ll be referred Of you, murals they’d paint You’d brighten up their lives Of me, they take no prisoners And thus cast me to one side The warmth you bring to me The way...Read On

Alone

Alone under a tree Time passes by As I wait for you To return. You promised me forever You said, you would be true Where have you gone I wish I knew Cologne on the wind As the leaves rustle above Voice lingering in my ear You are everywhere but here You said, twelve It’s half past one I guess I have lost You for good Please, come back to me Love me, like you said You...Read On

Carried Away

Sometimes I wonder where my love went When they were carried away, Wondered if their heart found Somewhere new to play. I look at things they love, See tears in my eyes, Touching at memories, Glancing over subtle lies. I remember the boat they left on, Sailing away into the sun, Promising times would follow, And they would be having so much fun. Sometimes I wonder if my love...Read On

Somniloquy On A Midwinter's Eve

Sonnet #5: In trimeter and Spencerian rhyme

Shivering, reviling Fading horrid nightmares, Shoot straight upright, smiling. Lust, love, and dear despair Rendered naked and bare, Lurk beneath Winter's ice- Trapped in nearest nowhere. Just a roll of the dice From wine and sacrifice, A grand soliloquy- Apologies, paradise. Purest ventriloquy. Heat within burns again, Pricks like pins, tastes...Read On

Numbness

Nothing really matters since you've been gone. Only numbness remains, A reminder of once was between us. I've given up all hope of your return. Vague memories form and take shape, Before dissipating entirely. It feels so long ago now. The sound of your voice, I can barely remember. I see you have a new love now. Does she know about me? I know you act nonchalantly, I...Read On

Unit

I thought that you knew, We worked better as a unit, Two of us as one, Not adding a stupid third wheel. Its like when you learn to ride a bike, (Cough)   Not  when you become one, Your training wheels are good to start, But eventually two wheels is enough. Like a plug and a socket, A necklace and a locket, Two things fit together just right, Kind of like a switch and a light. So...Read On
