Lessons Learned

When will I learn.

Lessons learned, pages turned. Tears cried, and wiped away. Stains on my heart, we always part. Lock it out, scream and shout. Promises made, promises broke. The pain so thick I might choke. Turn the page, step out of the cage. Head held high, I will not cry. Wondering why, never knowing. Just the same, some kind of cruel game. I didnt run, I was pushed away. ...Read On

And Stanzas We Sing

Using words, my wings, and stanzas we sing, crossing over life's pages of poetic sensuality, and my soliquey. Kissing your lips in rhythm and sublime, while in tall grass beneath honeysuckle vines, listening to a cappella rhyme. In shadows of the lunar moon, as loons swoon, the evening breeze rushing softly,  as you bring me love from an aria above. With scent of a golden rose in your...Read On

...of serenity

As poetry is my salt and life but a short visit, as fiddler bows last waltz. In still, I feel a quiver's breath, like a feathered swallow, at the sill of my gable. And with a silence of serenity, your spirit awakens me with a shadow of a kiss. As the sirens by the sea, lay down a bed of algae, as fiddler bows last waltz. Over half moon arising, my sweet lover, Galileo, ...Read On

She and He

it's been awhile. Just a little rambling ❤️

She was flawed Not yet bloomed  Charming pink  Scent of swoon He was spring She was dew He the sun She the moon He the bee She the bird He the seed  She the earth...Read On

Write About Butterflies

You wanted me to write something for you that could cut deep and soothe all at once, but you know that I don't ever believe in ever penning half measures. I don't want to write about butterflies or go on about how fates meet. You have loved me at my worst, that's exactly where I should start. How you saw something shimmering through the countless broken fragments that still...Read On

Combustion

Relearning sexual chemistry

Autums last leaf fell Winters lies setting in Pretty white coat covering Lonely heart it's kin Burning embers lost spark Something lost in remission Spring trying to rekindle Pushing life in transition Distance between us covers More than just miles Talking brings no answers Distrust still causing trials Your loving touch has Turned into faded image Intimate...Read On

The Corners of My Heart

Excuse me please, but who are you to know the corners of my heart? Do you live in there and see it as each wall contracts endlessly? Who are you to say if I love so and so and what business is it of yours to judge me? Don't you know the universe hears each and every plea and there will come a time for all? My hope is that those searching will learn to love themselves first. You can't look...Read On

Another Night Without You

I slide into bed tonight The cool sheets against my skin I release the breath I’d held I roll onto my side The top of my foot gliding along my calf My hand rubbing the empty spot next to me I bring the pillow to me Tugging it up against me and into my side It does little to replicate you I rest my head upon it as I would your chest My arm sliding across it ...Read On

Time's Up

Many months have passed Since she went away Although she said goodbye When she did not stay This time I knew she'd come back I have been here waiting Wrapped up in your love I gave up on hating That woman You gave your promise "Till death do you part" But she doesn't want you And it breaks my heart And soul I remain beside you As I have done all along Reaching for your hand When they...Read On

The Essence of Me

In a world full of wrong, I give the essence of my love

Sometimes the hardships of love are countless But it is ever changing and always formidable Bringing a smile to the ones who are sincere It is not meant to overpower but to accompany To complement and allow to blossom To some whom engage in an unmatched love The ones that love with money and are frivolous and ignorant of the perverse reality they have created they are detached,...Read On

What Is Love To You?

Once upon a time... Isn't that how stories start? Well, once upon a time I thought real love was Red drawn crayon hearts, Butterflies and goosebumps, Friday night movie dates, Kisses in the pouring rain, And Tiffany boxes Full of sparkly things. I saw true love like a story With a perfect ending everytime. Over the years I have learned Love is not like that at all. True love...Read On

Songs For You

I once arranged songs for you, plucked from a collection that hums through my nights, melodies that summon nothing but the beats and codes we found. The first is about a last kiss, just one before I go, and that always and forever are hands on clocks too different to keep on turning together, to keep from hurting each other. Another has no words at all, an instrumental river of warm...Read On

Sticky Wickets

Silence within a moment's breath, I hear the shadows dance On my pulse. As a fluttering butterfly soar, Caressing the noontime hour, Alighting on your breasts. Spreading pollen of dream dust, Like a cloud of woolly pillows On sticky wickets. I see the beauty of it all, As my ink dips in the well, Writing in my idle while.  And when the kiss is on the wind bellows, ...Read On

Staring at the Truth

I stare at the truth The truth I didn’t want to believe I cannot take my eyes away Away from the happiness I see My eyes weep as does my heart My pride damaged It’s all so clear The distance explained What was I to you? Was it a game? Was I a convenience? A crutch to get you through Do my tears fall in vain? If you saw them would it affect you? Would...Read On

For Better or Worse

I may be a complicated, difficult, often times short tempered, dare I say shrew? I know I'm a mess, but for better or worse you agreed and signed on the dotted line. Did you really think in light of recent events I could love you less? I'm almost insulted by things said and most recently done by you. Taking care of each other, I read that somewhere. I'll force you to see it yet. Twenty...Read On

Come Take Me Home

Why stay for reason when reason is timeless?

I want God to come  And take me home Because being with you  Is better than being alone In a crowd, In a room, Or in my bed I would much rather be  With you, wherever, instead But now you are gone  Far away from me Against all my will  For us to be free Your starry soul  Spent and sent away To a world of secrets  No longer ours to betray How strange the...Read On

Afternoon Delight

The moment that I saw it A grin lit up my face  It was as if Across the miles I felt your warm embrace How odd and lovely To receive Some mail that’s not a bill What joy it sparked At long day’s end To garner such a thrill! Encased in thick cream envelope With three stamps on its front Smiling at the taped-down flap I opened it at once So sweet to see you write my name! The words...Read On

Rewind

I only go back later on, after a flurry of skin, clamoring limbs and lips racing to some unseen line. After you fall asleep is when I remember little things. I rewind again to see the way a smile in candlelight radiates your entire face, curves unnoticed before . A trick of the flickering light, a photographic anomaly, tiny pockets aglow in dimples bloom across brilliant irises and remind...Read On

I Just Want A Man

'I just want a man who cares for me' said the lonely little chickadee. 'I'm so alone, come live in my home and I will care for thee.' 'I need a woman but never a wife’ spoke manly Brutus through his bite, 'I'll live with you and all that you do, just love me tonight.' 'Then take me, sir, love me tonight. Help my lonely heart take flight. We'll make a home 'n' I'll not be alone the rest of...Read On

You Are Gone Again

Sometimes breaking up is the right thing to do

You are gone again How many times will I allow you to stomp on my heart? When I see you with another woman my soul rips apart. I can no longer permit tears to fall from my eyes  Like drops of blood from my heart as it cries. You are gone again Your words flow like honey, thick, slow and sweet  You tell me that you’re sorry and that you will never again cheat. Why can’t I just say “no” and...Read On

I Want to Tell You

With a little help from my friends . . .

It is the hour When from the boughs The nightingale’s high note Damn it! Oh god! That’s Byron (I say) The words are not mine It sounded so good I thought it inspired Now I’m depressed I need something new To express how I feel Since I met you Yet each time I write And think “that sounds cool!” Turns out it’s something I studied in school I’ll try it again Breathe deep and stay...Read On

The Warmth

The light had all but gone, Extinguished by cruel words, And harsh moments. Her feelings numbed, And thoughts disregarded, The candle snubbed out again and again. Rare glimpses into her sad life, She hides so well, It almost doesn’t exist. Life is like this, she lied again, And took those lies in,  'Til they became reality. The smile she wears, Is open but darkly shaded, Ready...Read On

Broken

Time to pick up the pieces and move on

On the highway of life We have ridden for awhile But no longer do thoughts of you Make me want to smile Anger, pain and resentment As I see you sitting there Ignoring me and everything Anymore, I just don’t care I’m searching, seeking a way out To make this somehow fair Because thoughts of forever Fill me with despair How did we get here? To this angry place Now all I can...Read On

Will I Find a Mature Promiscuous Woman

Will I find a mature promiscuous woman if I search for one today? One who wants an elderly man in a bedroom kind of way?  I do not wish for fidelity, in fact the opposite is true, Are there women over sixty who have my point of view? Oh, to have a woman my age, as promiscuous as can be, One who loves the menfolk with velocity.  I would share her with other men of like-minded views,  And...Read On

Runes

You feed like I want to, air palpitating with signals, symbols that cannot be seen, only traced by curious tongues. I want it to be marked upon skin and bone, carve the runes out slowly before you go. So I know how to be taken. Have you noted the changes yet? The differences that are told, etched from beyond another's walls, the way a face begins to tilt like petals following the...Read On

Forbidden Love

Once in a lifetime, a Juliet I must be.

A forbidden love Not meant for Hallmark many say its not sent from above labeling this type of love as Dark No binding ties no boundaries no barriers hidden, yet it flourishes as a sunrise all behind closed chambers A forbidden love distance, commitments stabs the soul of your ladylove yet both know no impairments Many times these sentiments are truer stronger than conventional...Read On

Stepping Stone

I know of what you speak I have been there you see. There was a day not so long ago when I looked like you as he looked at me.    Our eyes caressed each other gently and his world is what I was. I remember it so clearly he could never get enough.   Standing in his presence as he tended to his business. He would glance across the room it was me there in his vision.   He could guide me...Read On

One More Question

Leap of faith

Time is drawing closer Will eyes stay blinded by fear Reality means full exposure Second thoughts may appear Ready to remove our masks Once caused by distance Too much love to leave this task Undone in the hour of coexistence Setting sail to where tangible meets fantasy Will dreams wake to true faces A bold plan, is it just fallacy Excitement abounds as a heart races ...Read On
