Quarry

Bulky, unwieldy Awkwardly arranged Plunked on the paper Like big clods of clay That is how words Appear now to be When I want to convey What you mean to me Needing to craft Nuances of thought Instead a Neanderthal Pounds with a rock Inadequate language Inartfully clubbed Unable to voice Prayerful facets of love Chunks great of speech Plunge hillside down When I seek precise beauty...Read On

Osculating

The feeling of that first time...

You   Lean down and softly bend my head back, placing your soft warm lips on mine.   Me My hands drift to your face, holding you tenderly as your lips touch mine. Oh, what a sigh.   As I sigh my lips part, and for the first time the tip of your tongue touches mine.   Our tongues dance, discover, and give, breathing each other in.   My head is spinning as you break the kiss,...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

101 Words From Me

The Way I See It

In pain we scare, In pain we hide, In pain we cry, In pain we lie, In pain we fear. Enough of the scared, Enough of the hiding, Enough of the tears, Enough of the lies, Enough of the fears. When will it ever be enough? Take away the fears, Take away the need to hide, Take away the need to cry, Take away the need to lie. Take away the need to be full of fear.  Let...Read On

Tempest

Upon the midnight, perilous ocean-deep, pour forth and set the world ablaze

A petal falls and comes to float Upon a lake of placid still. Like gentle sway of empty boat, Oblivious to early morning chill. Upon the surface it skims along, Mirrored reflection in tranquil glass. Deaf to melodious dawn chorus-song, A fleeting moment, come to pass. The wisps of cloud that streak the sky, A temperate blessing of heaven's grace. Glowing glorious, canvas upon high....Read On

Invisible Ink

I have invisible ink tattooed on me. I will no longer keep silent, I now share my secret. I'm a survivor and those who know Without me saying can tell perfectly. I don't look for pity, only salvation. I'm no longer ashamed to admit this. Each time I tell someone else I do not know, I become stronger, with every breath that I take. I was lost and alone and I lived in my own prison of...Read On

You're Just A Memory

Best of luck to you.

When a relationship ends  The healing can finally begin You were once lovers and best friends You got underneath each other's skin The love was once there Now it's all gone You lose faith and don't care There's nothing left to hold on No tears as this is best A final goodbye is said A dead relationship laid to rest Happiness is now up ahead You're now just a memory Tucked away neatly in a...Read On

Words Can't Describe

My feelings defy description...but I'll try...

I tried to tell you how I feel, But the words just didn’t work. How can I express what you mean to me? If I were an artist, I’d paint you, With fine lines and bold color and great movement To illustrate your physical grandeur. If I were a musician, I’d sing you, With swelling crescendos and intricate chords and complicated harmonies To communicate your creative spirit. If I were...Read On

Loving Me

for the longest time I wondered why why no one ever quite understood me why I was the one that never had all the interest why I seemed to be such a mystery why I figured I’d always be alone until you came along the way you understood me took interest in everything I am knew every secret without being told wanted to be with only me and I realized yours was the heart meant to...Read On

Afterglow

She’s a rare bird, untamed and wild Who makes me smile With the intensity of a climax Fierce and raw and savage And strangely tender, too. Funny how freeing it is To be on the business end of a leash Proudly paraded around the park in pink panties. Oh, in a perfect world, Where judges were but wisps of cotton candy That would be my chosen place… A bird, (I said) but...Read On

Choices

At some point she stopped listening When he would talk to her Displaying a delightful smile Through boredom thick as tar Wondering how she got here Become the walking dead Catching just the tail end And so she’d nod her head Feigning her compassion Planning what’s for lunch Playing with her earrings Glancing at her watch Inserting mental earbuds Blocking out his voice ...Read On

Bruised Heart

Our Love stands strong ... Take your lies and move on

A bruised heart, a tear falls I sit in silence looking at the walls Thinking how deep my love is for you How all of our promises were given and true A single word, a sentence so vile All were delivered in guile Why must one hurt another's heart It was done to try to tear us apart Through the lies and deception I see It was done out of hatred we both agree A jealous path never ends...Read On

Dark Place

Deep Dark Feelings

Sadness is masked by a world I create,  I pretend to be happy in this place. I wonder if some could really relate, I'm sad with tears running down my face. I feel very alone and confused here, Like I just feel like screaming. I just feel like I want to disappear, Often fantasizing and dreaming. I'm very cold and very sad, I'm here, but so far away. I just get so very mad, I just am hopeful...Read On

Celestial Music To My Heart

You are someone unique and very special, so never let anything or anyone change you.

Long ago I sat on the roof Listening to the stars' melody My heart, I thought was theft-proof Until you sang your rhapsody Turbulent was my very essence I now grow in peace and tranquility At the very thought of your presence my inner song plays with certainty The stars above shimmer brightly As a kiss we share with simplicity I feel my heart burning ardently Cocooned in your arms safety...Read On

Prefer to Love And Suffer

for one day it will be....

I love, because love is life, because if I love, I may receive love. I prefer to love and suffer, than to suffer never having loved... Just kiss me! A kiss with a maddening passion, a kiss which seduces me, with all your moisture, bite me with passion... I prefer to love and suffer, than to suffer never having loved... Just kiss me! I am yours, surrender me with your lips,...Read On

Forever Written In Stone

Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it. ~ Brave

Something happened for the very first time with you; there was a pull to be a part of your world,  to be one with you. Emotions overpowering; consuming my heart and soul,  running longer than a rolling stream, higher than a mountains peek. Embedded in my very being,  etched in my mind,  features of your face I longed to memorize. I see you when the sun rises and sets,  dreams and...Read On

Caught

How could you?

You're a lying son of a gun You said I was the one I see you're having fun We're absolutely done How could you do that With my best friend You're a fucking rat This is truly the end I caught you together You both deceived me I was under the weather Now I'm absolutely free A liar and a slut You two should be happy We were in a bit of a rut This is making me unhappy She bought me...Read On

Pressures graduate from drizzle to downpour. In its midst, I wait for the  you in me to  un-claim,  unbind from the right now exchange... exchanges.

Blondie's Song

This one was just sort of for fun.

“Let’s ride,” she said, or rather said I And he lay down beside me, prick aimed at the sky My magnificent cuckold of destruction and death Draining my soul and stealing my breath. “Get on little girl!” I felt obliged to correct him Growling softly and sinking my teeth in Little perhaps but the girl had long fled Drowned in a shower of powder and lead. “Let’s ride,” he said,...Read On

Another World

Stars. Billions of them. Suns, solar systems, galaxies… Possibilities. Other worlds. Other lives. Could there be a world like ours, somewhere out there, hidden among the glittering pinpricks that dot the night sky? Could there be another you , another me , lovers so close, they feel as one? Do hearts flutter when their hands touch, eyes light up at first sight of each other? Are...Read On

Belief

Sometimes it's hard to be yourself...

I dreamed that all my wounds had healed, which freed me to move on. My confidence was coming back, I'd thought it all but gone. A smile, a laugh, an opening up, a glimmer of some hope, But my epistemic self still said I was a dope. * Not sure if I was was worthy, was sadly my belief And a brave face was the one I wore, despite the mental grief. Suppressing it, I steeled myself and...Read On

My Old Friend Pain

Welcome back my old friend pain I forgot how you demand my attention  Nothing compares to the way you feel The paralyzing strength of your grip  For in your absence my old friend I find myself forgetting the dance we do Tonight you make your presence known As I grip the covers and beg for relief To live a life in pain is no way to be but escaping you seems impossible because even on...Read On

New Horizons

I know you think I'm crazy. Maybe that's because I am. About life, about this moment, about you.

Letting go of dreams unexpecting, never searching, cautious but welcoming new and beautiful destinations. Long time of self discovery, of new adventures, of new beginnings, of new horizons. Storms, darkness, tears sadness and loneliness. Under the stars, hidden are the scars. The moonlight over my skin, high, lonely soft clouds. My mind adrift, lost broken into a million things. In...Read On

All of You

To my Valentine; Love means wanting to know all of you.

When I say I want you  I am trying to say… I want all of you. Not just the jagged bits Or thread worn pieces Left like debris in a storm I want your whole heart I want to know your soul I want all of you Not just your lips But your deepest kiss Not just your limbs Intertwined within mine or your arms and hands Interlaced holding mine I want to feel the weight Of your body pressed Fully...Read On

Tempestuous

A cautionary tale. . .

A yen for intrigue and risk is how it begins The line being blurred between folly and sin Casting open a virtual Pandora's box Not taking into account the monumental cost.   Our initial encounter taking place in the air Desire's heady aroma proving too much to bear Pheromones, whiskey, cologne, all serve to beguile Provoking me to conjure up my feminine wiles.   With no other...Read On

No More Cyber Relationships

Cyber relationship ends

Not the girl to make you smile I don't even want to be friends Not going that extra mile There's no love in the end Days wasted in the shadows Not knowing the real deal This existence was shallow Thankfully it was not real Tired of being a door mat I'm real with feelings Tired of being picked at So happy I'm now healing We talked most days Hardly any apologies You were always...Read On

What You Don't Know

When all that we have is my love...

You may not know   for I won’t tell just how much you've cast your spell   Stolen moments borrowed time shared jokes happy lines   Thoughts of you makes my heart race awake and alone I imagine your face   With just your presence makes me feel anew for all I want is a moment with you   Each word you sketch a perfect reflection who can blame those that steal your affection...Read On
