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

A Dedication To My Lover

A tribute to my second mother, lover and confidante.

We met here on Lush, over two years ago Our hearts for each other beginning to grow, Seeing each other for the very first time Drinking gin and tonic, garnished with lime. Like a mother who brought me from depths of despair Loving me tenderly and brushing my hair, Sharing her husband in times of my need Bringing me to orgasm, and doing their deed. Her sweet smiling face...Read On

Romeo and Juliet... Revisited

A modern look at Romeo and Juliet

Let me tell you a story about two young lovers,  A tragic love story, been told by many others. The servants of Montague, and of Capulet, Fought for their Masters, sometimes until death. Escalus warned them not to breach the peace again, Or he would see to it, every one of them was slain. The feud between the houses started long ago, Neither would surrender, or let the hatred go. ...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

Self-Confidence

Girl, Darling, My dear friend. Please don't do this. This, whatever you are doing, Just stop. You don't need a man to define you, Much less, a man to make you strong. You don't need a man to tell you, Just how beautiful, you really are. And you especially, Don't need a man, to tell you how sexy you are. Fuck that. Instead, walk to your mirror, And say "I am...Read On

Keeping Quiet

these words are from long ago

If the sound of me saying, I love you, will make you angry,  I prefer never to speak of my sentiments. If the feelings cannot be returned, my heart will also let you go, and I will forget the beauty of us. Others said this can not last, but to my regret, I turned a deaf ear, the thought was imperishable. Although, I must admit circumstances have always made this bitter sweet, and caused...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

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

Be Still

It is easy for chimes To whisper music  When the wind blows It is difficult  For music to overflow  When no wind is stirring No one can make  A song in the night  With a soul that is trouble It is easy to sing  When one can read  The notes by daylight When all things go well  You can weave songs  Of beauty wherever you go Rejoicing  In the flowers  That grow upon your path But,...Read On

Patchwork Hearts

Over the course of one's lifetime our heart changes shape,  it evolves and transforms.  Once untouched,  unbroken in its entirety  an unblemished, whole beauty. Somehow beyond our comprehension,  defying all we know of logic,  through heartbreak it becomes  even more beautiful,  weathered and worn,  so delicate yet so strong.  I think of my heart as a frayed edge quilt,  wove of...Read On

Beautifully Flawed

To, Tony, the one who taught me to see the world differently.

They say that the mirror never lies. In the mirror I saw every imperfection. But is the world's truth really within the mirror's unforgiving reflection? Or does beauty lie in the eyes of the beholder? I grew to hate my body's imperfections. In the reflection I could only see scars, flaws and countless shortcomings. Was my reality in the beholder or mirror? Inundated with...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

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

Wings Of Time

The silence wakes me in the early morning hours As the moon shimmers through my window  Listening to the wind softly crying  Whispering gently in my ear Sitting beneath the stars, sparkling and so bright  Sensing the mystery on this silent night  My thoughts running endlessly  On the wings of time Let us take this moment  Maybe I can make you smile  Bring a sparkle to your eye  And...Read On

In Love With My Best Friend

I treasure our magical moments we call pillow time Lying vulnerable as we each let our walls down A place where our fears have nowhere to hide We reached out to each other not wanting to drown I didn't fall in love with you between thrusts  Or as you gripped the sheets calling my name It wasn't even the red rose petals scattered Although your endless charm put many to shame It was as we...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

Brick By Brick

I can remember every hurtful criticism spoken in a moment of anger by past lovers. With each one I added another hard brick. One more brick in the wall around my heart. A fortress designed to shield my heart from pain inflicted by those who declared their love. Intimate betrayals hurt worse than anything. I have always worn my emotions on my sleeve, so brick by brick, I built a wall...Read On

The River

Dedicated to my beautiful SydneySider

Fresh dew upon the green, Moist against her skin. Ageing trees cast shadows, The gentle breeze creeps through. Swirling hues of liquid, Lick at her fingertips. Beaming sun’s reflection, Still no answers she finds. Whispered, silent wishes, A river of lost dreams. A glint of hope remains, She calls for love once more. Soon her prayers are answered, He is there, in her dreams....Read On

Love's Shadow

For those who inspire and encourage me to write... thank you ...

Love is but a shadow  In the shadow of evening Where sunlight sinks Drowning In reflecting silver Of moon and stars Their light A beacon for Lovers  To begin Are you her? She who follows Silent Through cloister hall passage To my door Not a knocking enter Just a knowing glance Drawn in by our fire No words Eyes greet My blush glows brighter Than the candle's flame ...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

Rhythm Of Love

The new dawn is in its morning-glory And the joy of a new day begins  Longing to have each day's promises The clouds billowing in the sky endlessly  From above, you look so beautiful Shrouded in mystery clouds Where the wind is rising and passing softly by  It begins to whistle a sweet melody  Openly   Eagerly Everywhere birds are singing in the trees  Leaves dancing in the breeze ...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

My Drug Of Choice

A sweet fragrance Swirling around  Filling the air  That I breathe Your scent  Makes me wild  Your kisses  Make me shiver Thirsty for your loving touch  Your gentle arms providing comfort  Filling a deep desire from within  As we melt into one another Weakening to your embrace  Feeling your breath, your warmth  Leaving me breathless  And overwhelming my senses Our bodies absorbing...Read On

Soulmate

For those of Lush who have found a love denied by fate

How do I know you are beautiful, When never have I seen your face? How do I know that I love you, Having never felt your embrace? How do I know you smile, When you hear me whisper to you? How do I know that you need me, Having never been there for you? I have never Held you. Or kissed your sweet, Tender lips. I have never Caressed you. Or danced in your Moonlighted bliss. But somewhere...Read On

Writer’s Block

I cannot write. The words won’t come, They do not flow, they do not run. No musings glowing on my screen, Nor rhyming couplets to be seen. I sit and stare, then stare and sit And that’s about the size of it. * I’m trying write, my words are stuck Type, delete, yet still no luck. My thoughts of you a jumble now. I’d like to say, but don’t know how. So I pick...Read On

The Shadow

Only dreamers Standing in the shadows  Free of judgment and rejection  Masking their fears  Their eyes are  The window to their souls  Where all of their secrets hide  The cries of their hearts  Cannot be seen  And their tears  Cannot be touched  Sometimes the shadow  In the dark comes out  Walking towards  A wishful dream The storm raged  In their hearts  Lightning flashed  Through...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

Love By Keystrokes

Romance by chance

Our love consists of keystrokes  From our computers or iPads You're the most amazing bloke These feelings make me feel glad Years now we're together In our computer thing We're each other's cyber lover So many emotions this brings Yet we've never met Only shared photographs Feelings of happiness and no regret We share tears and lots of laughs Sometimes there're fights Mostly days...Read On
