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

Love's Possibilities

You never know what is hiding behind the next door

A journey we've begun That is loving and true  My heart in need of care  You then took the cue We were just good friends  You'd wipe away my tears  Unsure where this would lead  And now you've promised to calm my fears With my eyes tightly closed  I jumped and then fell  Taking a huge leap of faith Leaving behind my utter hell Now with my hand in yours You pull me from the dark  Safe,...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

You!

Cherish every moment

  Sitting quietly filling in time  watching the room  answering when spoken too  Asking myself,"Is this really what I want?"  Then you walk in  and my answer is clear  "YES" it is  For every moment spent together  makes me smile and feel so cherished and loved.  Your smile  your touch the way you pull me close  and oh so much more  These are the moments  I cherish and hold on...Read On

Lightning Bugs

Love should be more than a flash in the dark

Like Fire Flies dancing in the night, Desperate lovers flit about,  finding each other in random glory.    Two become one, merging their luminescence In a brilliant flash of radiant bliss,  Bravo, to them I say,  filled with joy that they've found their mate.   But all too soon their lightning dims  and they part again,  Dancing in the dark until a new pair  meet and glow anew.   ...Read On

My eyes wanders on your face...

Whenever my day turns to darkness Bringing me sunshine in your presence The salve to heal my broken soul are A written poetry you made for me Looking at the laugh lines in your face Itching to touch them with my lips Followed by my tracing fingertips My own poetry are written for you Beard that tickles when you kiss Playfully making me laughing and Wishing to feel that passionate kiss...Read On

Forest

Have I seen this tree before? Or have I circled back? I wish I’d thought to mark the spot To keep myself on track   I saw a bird That looked like moss Grayish mossy green Hopping on a lichen stone The pattern stayed with me   What can I leave And save myself Thus still remain intact? To make me shine in memory To polish up my lacks   What way to guarantee that I Can be...Read On

Kiss

Lips touching lips... that is a kiss...

Fluttering of wings Rat racing inside Short of breath Weakening knees That's how I feel every time   Conflicting minds Complicated feelings Constricting pains Presence missing That's how I feel right now   Wishing you are here For me With me Together That's what on my mind today   More than just a kiss But a soulful touch of Someone special.    ...Read On

God Gave Me You

Be thankful of your special love

Who would have thought We would find each other in a place like this But God had a plan When he brought us together We were so different at first I was so guarded but you patiently showed me I could trust again But looked deeper than the surface You teach me more every day About life, myself and love The passion we share is unlike anything I have experienced I thank God every day...Read On

Play

For my beloved . . .

Sit beside me at the play Your fingers laced with mine Kiss me as the lights go down Willing captives for a time Join me in this curtained world Created and made real Scenes portrayed and taking form Like stars at dark revealed Tendrils reach and wrap around Enveloping our thoughts Lifting us into their realm Fantasy with tickets bought   The love we share Feels deepened Plush seats, the...Read On

Waiting

Wishing you were here right now...

Sitting quietly on my bed  listening to the rain outside  I glance at the clock  wondering where you are Tick the minute's pass But still nothing ... messages sent, go left unread  I wonder what happened ... Is it something I did? but more likely outside forces. But all I really know right now is  that I want you  I need you  I love you  and I am really worried  feeling a...Read On

Questions of the heart

Standing together....

I fall for you  a little bit more  with every kiss with every word But in that lies my greatest fear I love the look of your smile and the gentle way  your lips brush against mine  to say Good morning or Good night The way you look at me  making me smile wide  and causing my eyes to shine  Oh so bright... But still I question  why me and not her  because to me I'm not...Read On

Dig Your Roots

You gotta dig your roots-Florida Georgia Line

I grew up in a small town  And no matter where I am  I remember where I come from  Country music is the soundtrack to my life  Falling in love under the stars  Taking our time  We were both nervous and shy  The first time we made love under the stars  I saw fireworks  And it wasn't even the Fourth of July  But summer faded into fall  And you were gone  So now I'm left with...Read On

Her

Internal battle for answers...

  Not realizing how late it was she starts walking, Heading anywhere Just needing time to think And maybe, make a decision. The winter sun dips behind the trees And the darkness sets in Her footsteps echoing against the ground Silence… She shivers, nervous Not just about her surroundings But at the self-doubt, she’s feeling She’s scared and no one’s there All caught up in their...Read On

Perhaps - II

Can we really heal?

"Time heals all wounds", you said to me. "Perhaps", I replied, doubtful. You were right, of course. Even after the years together, Even after all the sharing, Even after all the intimacy, Even after all the laughter, Even after all the tears, Even after the sudden ending. Even after the ebbing, hollow conversation which followed. You were right, of course. Time does heal all wounds. ...Read On

Better

NOT about Verbal

It's probably better I heard myself say It's probably better To leave it this way   I'm good at ignoring Like nothing is there I'm good at pretending That nothing is there   Farewell to whatever I've archived our chats I can't quite delete them I'm still a pack rat   Bon voyage, bye-bye The wind waves my scarf As I stand still watching The ship leaves the dock....Read On

Who is the right one ?

Looking for not just a lover  But a friend and soulmate  Someone who makes them...Read On

Right Where I Need to Be

I'm right where I need to be -Gary Allen

Life pulls us in so many different directions  But we always seem to find right where we belong  Even if the miles separate us  I know right where I need to be  I know I belong to you  Right where I need to be is in  Your arms  But with the distance I know   Right where I need to be is in your heart  Miles apart I still I know  Right where I belong     ...Read On

After All

He was never coming back She could accept that now The fights, the love The joy, despair Had seen their final round She let the calm flow over her Unable yet, to miss No mental checks of what he’d do Her thoughts began to drift Who was she, before him? She never really knew What was she, without him? She could learn that too So much she never noticed Living as she had She vowed...Read On

Walk with Me

My heart was filled with anticipation The future held so many promises Yet, we could not create that passion Always fearing it was given in other premises I wanted to believe that I had found her The grand relation for me to nurture and grow That with time she would be the special lover That would make me yearn for tomorrow Too many harsh words were spoken Too much time wasted not...Read On

My Better Place

You give me a reason to smile

Drifting back and forth With no real direction Or clear path in mind Searching for something But what was missing I couldn’t figure it out Then you came into my life And the fog began to clear. You make me smile and laugh and make me feel special We share stories As you teach and guide me Giving me back my faith and hope. And when you take me in your arms  pulling me close as...Read On

Voices of Love

Just a little something for my love

Kindle my world, gleefully say, Your loving heart lifts my spirit each day. Was painfully yearning, a deep dark hole, Now eternally burning, mending my soul. Name of yours, lips echo each night, Visions of us dominate my sight. In your arms, your soul cradles me, Hearts beat as one and forever to be. Vow is promise, lovers were blessed, Keeps us sane to forget all the rest. Numerous...Read On

Each day still learning and fall even more.  The look in  your eye as you smile so bright Then you call me "Yours"  and that makes my heart soar. From this moment on  knowing my life will be different, ...Read On

She Comes To Me

She comes to me when I try to sleep My head filled with flashes of light A tempest of color Scared, alone, cold, tired, I cower. She comes to me when I think What are we doing here? We trudge through We listen to what they say We do what we are supposed to do. She comes to me when I cry The world so cruel So much pain So much suffering It’s not just mine, we share it all. She comes to me...Read On

Lithograph

I need to know if there's some depth  in you that just can't be reached.  I can feel this tender core helplessly flexing around me, the sacred and profane  reilluminated into one.  A flash of lighting against the window, just a moment of violent skyward glows and your body is suddenly still and visible, a bright lithograph of all sensual mystery. And if I said I loved you, would that...Read On

Flare

Your heart pounds against my ear  in the suddenly still aftermath, an oceanic rhythm in skin, rising to a quiet warm crest. I could be listening to music from another life, I can't tell if it's mine or yours, it could be the soft waves reaching the shore of some unknown old country. It tells of all that's unseen now. The marks that will live on this flesh, I only sense their new fire in...Read On

Five More Minutes

Wish I had me a pause button - Scotty McCreery

We all want five more minutes We want a pause button for the good stuff Eight years old catching fireflies Mama yells time to come in We yell five more minutes Sixteen years old on your front porch Kissing good night Your Dad flipping the light switch Interrupting our good night kissing We say five more minutes Eighteen years old last home football game We wanted five more minutes ...Read On

Without Them

For her

The touch of Whispers in your ear Gently spoken Raising hairs   The caress of Fingers against your cheek Silently caressing Stirring passion   The pressure of Tongue against your lips Insistent cravings Kindling hunger   And yet,   Waiting for the Return to ardent arms So willing to embrace Intimately close   Hungering for the Scent of their essence Enveloping...Read On
