Please Tell Me That You Can Stay

First love poem of the month...

I watch you lie so quiet and still, You really are a lovely sight, So many dreams you helped fulfill, As I recall our previous night. As the morning sun begins to rise, I watch you lie silent on the bed, A soft glow dances upon your eyes, The pillow softly cradles your head. The morning sun bathes you in light, As you slowly start to awake, My thoughts soon turn to delight, As I think of...Read On

Our Love

Until you find it, you don't realize how much love can change your life

Our love so new, yet so familiar My carnal need for you is so raw Our love demands my full attention It is a pure emotion without flaw Your love is a comfort to me Pulling it over me, covering me A familiar blanket protecting me Finally from restraint, I am free Your love eases my suffering My very own medical miracle Comfort where there was only pain Making the long nights bearable ...Read On

The Right Words

Are words enough... To explain how your gentle touch Literally takes my breath away Or how just the sound of your voice Makes butterflies flutter inside me Are words enough... To explain how I feel myself fall in love all over again with every kiss we share To even begin to explain the extent of the longing and love that I feel for you Are words enough... To convey to you that my...Read On

Carry Me Far Away

Further from the things of man...

I wish the tide would lift me up And carry me far away, Further from the things of man Than those who wish to stay. Drifting slowly from the shore Far out into the sea. No more broken promises, Now just the waves and me. No more pain and sorrow, No more footprints in the sand To fade away on the ebbing tide And leave my pain on land. Just a hollow vessel now, Floating forlorn on...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

My Love For Simplicity

A poem dedicated to my love, Simplicity

How often does love confound us?  How often does love perplex?  How often does love confuse us? And how often does love cause stress? I've loved enough times to realize  It's often far too complex.  The battle of wills  And the pain it instills  Often turns joy into vex. What I long for these days is more subtle It's something so easy to say. I long for a love with no trouble  Just a...Read On

Seize the Day

Life is a book, and each day a page.

So long ago, When my days ahead were an unwritten book,  I put my pen to page, and wrote the words   'Seize the day'! And seize them well I did... I lived and played, and worked and slaved,   For nothing more than to seize the day.   And so it is written, on page after page... By my hand, Those three words lay scrawled.  Cascading from page to page.   From day to day. Written in...Read On

Wild Heart

Looking for inspiration Only a few words  Listening to the sounds  Wobbling and shaking  There is music  In the wind  Songs of birds  Soft and sweet  The sun is shining  Bright and warm Wherever I am  Whether it is  Far or near  You are with me  Close to my heart  I am a dreamer  And you have a plan  For there is  A far better love song  Melodies of pleasure  For you and me Whisper softly...Read On

Warm Sunshine

As we drink our fill of the warm sunshine

We linger awhile upon the grass Where chequered shadows of clouds doth pass, Shrouding the sun and its warming rays reach Before passing on to let the summer heat preach. How quiet it is, this peaceful scene, As though all were lost and no longer seen. Washed away with the last heavy rain So that you and I are all that remain. A sight more beautiful could not be seen Surrounded...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

Chiaroscuro

Escaping from darkness into the light can be a long process ending in euphoria

Like da Vinci and Michelangelo I struggle to find the balance of light and dark This darkness hides inside my mind, blocking out all receptors of light And right now I’m too much the coward to turn around As you torture me with touches, tender and tantalizing   A patchwork of thought eats at the reclusiveness of my heart A deprivation of light designed to evaporate my dignity ...Read On

I Do Not Love You

We love as though a lifetime had been spent just waiting.

I do not love you like a whisper on a breeze, Or softly as the warm summer rain. I am consumed each day by a ruthless hunger, That glows like a burning ember buried deep inside. We exist like a fire in potentia, Waiting for the breath from that first kiss To ignite an unforgiving and unrelenting blaze That will devour us both once it is set free. I do not love you like the...Read On

Butterfly Wings

We must learn to crawl Before we can walk Day dreaming someday We could finally fly Life is unpredictable Hearts easily are broken The dream of flying At times almost forgotten We can become lost Simply numbing the pain Hiding in our own cocoon Afraid to feel the hurt If we are willing to try again To let ourselves feel love Despite the risk of failure Then anything is possible ...Read On

I Do

Dedicated to my favorite couple, they simply do.

Because after a while There are no words Nothing that has not already been said In every octave With every tone Fast and spelled out for you S L O W L Y We have been soft with one another Desperate in our love making I have taken your hand You have taken mine We have placed the fingertips of the other On pulse points Stroked hidden places And pleaded "love me" Felt the heat it generates...Read On

Let Me Be

  From above thunder rolls A gentle melody whistling in the wind Light raindrops sprinkle a little Let me be, your choice of shade Embracing you with my presence   Water is drifting in the streams Different time and places Floating endlessly  Let me be, the peace Within your soul This magic and love we share Silently dancing through your thoughts Hear me as you breathe Let me be,...Read On

Silent Moments

Some things exist only in the silence, in the spaces in between the noise stolen moments in life's chaos where true love simply exists. When life's constant noise stops finally we get to just breathe. It is in these rare moments when we realize life's fragility. Love, for me, was always fleeting. Finally, I found a beautiful man whose soul hears all of the words I could never begin...Read On

A Teardrop's Silence

Overwhelmed, our vulnerable hearts fill up, fragile from the weight of emotion, yet there is no collapse or implosion, only the soundless falling of a single tear. A drop in the ocean without noise or ceremony, I can feel it reverberating somewhere in the voice that I know and a stranger's cold echo lies the silence of letting so much of myself go. Letting them go is a release so profound,...Read On

Serendipity

He became her serendipity

He had me from hello, such a simple word Little did we know that it would change our world I can't believe how short it's been since our first friendly chat When we said goodnight at last, I thought that was that But our talks did not stop there, they only grew to be more Could this really be the man I had always searched for How can love happen so fast that we don't even know it The...Read On

Genesis

Love’s moment of creation

Plucked from her branch, perfect apple sweet, In the heart of his own paradise. Her centre a havoc of lustful heat. His voice a litany of vice. The act forbidden, her body unsung, As his teeth broke her porcelain skin. The flavour of her lingered upon his tongue. Ravaged innocence their cardinal sin. Dazed euphoria caused her mind to spin, Revelled he in the joys of curious woman....Read On

A Step Into The Dark

Trust begins with a step into the abyss

The early days are a heady mix of joyful repartee.   Affection and our playful words, we share with hopeful glee.   With eager hearts and bated breath, we share a secret kiss.   We bask in newfound lust fulfilled, And ache from each caress.   Plans and hopes we offer up, In hope that we shall see,   That truth and honest heartfelt words Were spoken by me to thee.   The...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

Dance with Me

you know what i want.... dance with me, dearest....

You tell me, "Come close," and I cannot resist. The music and my desire are all for you. My hands touch your waist and slide under your shirt...... your skin like fire under my seeking hands. Mouth kissing.... tongue tasting the corner of your mouth, your chin, your neck. My clothes have fallen away except for the black stilettos that drive you crazy and...Read On

Messy Love

Love is a word that defies definition. It is more beautiful than even the most vivid imagination can envision, it is spontaneous, combustible and messy, very messy. Love is not limited by an elementary arrangement of four simple letters. The limitations only arise from our ability to feel the billions of elements that combine together to become one. The definition would have to...Read On

Four Little Buttons

Whispering Into your ear Sweet things that  Makes you weak This hunger  Within me You follow  My every move As my hand  Flowing over you Working my way  Going down  There…There…  To beyond  What awaits me there My body moves  With a sensual motion My fingers a feather  So light and soft A touching kiss  To mark the time See the glowing  In your smiley eyes Feeling...Read On

As He Sleeps

As he sleeps next to me I wonder, Does he understand what I see When I look into his gentle eyes Every time he says he loves me? As he sleeps next to me I wonder, Does he realize he rescued me, Not from the perils of the world But from hurt even I couldn't see? As he sleeps next to me I wonder, If he loses himself in our embrace? Does he feel butterflies like I do  As his kisses trail along...Read On

My Loving Addiction

How I love her.

I'm addicted to this feeling,  My need to have you near. Like a soothing warmth, it's in my heart, and it casts aside my fears. I'm enchanted by your smile,  and your sweet and tender eyes They keep the darkness from my soul  Even in the darkest night.  I'd be lying if I told you, I longed not for your touch, But it's not your scent or soft caress That my heart needs so much From the...Read On

Desires Of The Heart

Kissing hello to the moon A loving breeze lingering  Swirling in and out of leaves  Playfully in the evening light  Setting up the mood  Giving a thrilling sensation  Passionate and tender Surging in the lover's heart  Revealing the inner hunger  Swaying slowly  Into its seducing delight  For the fire inside  Wild and teasing  Dancing in places Reflection of shadows  Brought out by the...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
