Awakenings

For my inamorato for reigniting the flame within

It is hard to remember my life before you  Back to those days that were tough to get though  Claiming nothing was missing was clearly untrue I now see I was blinded by a distressed point of view When we collided I was shocked to realize  Feelings I missed now took me by surprise Promised love unable to get past all the lies  Hope now appeared mysteriously before my teared eyes  ...Read On

Winter's Stillness

Why weren't you my destiny?

She's stuck in winter's stillness, stalled at Christmas time. Fog wraps its wings around her and hugs her while she cries. The love she found, she'll never own.  The Christmas gift she craves.  Destined to be without her.  To another, his love, he gave. Another already wore his ring. She'd arrived late to the revelry. Seemed someone else was living her life.  Why couldn't he have been...Read On

Life's A Dance

the song may be over

Life is a dance  You search high and low for that forever love you read about  Then he comes out of nowhere and steals your heart from the word hello  You pray he is your destiny part of the grander plan Then suddenly you watch him walk away ,breaking your heart as he goes  Yet, you wouldn't regret a minute of the dance you shared for a brief minute in time  You learn from...Read On

Nonentity

I wonder what lies beneath

Would it be okay If I stopped to say I know you Not your name That has now changed But you're still you So many before Walked out that door Just to again return Pretending to be A different somebody Some will never learn If you can't be you You can't be true So really, what's the point I shake my head At all you've said And roll up another joint Dumb myself down Dress up like a clown...Read On

Memories In A Box

A pressed flower in a box Memories stored away I opened up the lock All I see is that day Everything was great We were two of a kind Meeting you was fate Our love was hard to find Moments shared together Our love was such a pleasure Life couldn't be any better These thoughts I did treasure You gave me a ring that night I accepted and we shared a kiss Everything...Read On

We Remember

When I am ashes upon the shelf Will you remember me When you feel your skin tingle Will you remember me When you sense a breath in your ear Will you remember me When you see my toothbrush by the sink Will you remember me When you see my pictures Will you remember me I saw your name written in a book And I remembered I inhaled the scent from your clothes And I remembered ...Read On

Our Turn

And every time I hear that same old tired music I see her face again Lit by whatever screams light In a crowded southside club Everyone was dancing and beautiful Because everyone dancing is beautiful Songs about whatever lasts forever Because something always does – Be it heartbreak or love – And I had to lean in close and whisper Something about love and fucking Just...Read On

Spilled Champagne

Love kills softly and slowly, Like a disease it enters, Filling you with its ugly decay, Creeping and crawling away. Sheathed in concerto, Singing passion with gusto, Lying whispers to the heart Intoxicating your mind, until nothing sane remains. You fill your voids, and dig your hole, Like worms it wriggles into your core, It eats at your membrane, gnawing away, Leaving you with...Read On

Supermoon

A bit of serenity

Am I lost Within the explanation Outside our destination Have I found A common inspiration Devoid of complication Could it be Just my imagination Of mutual admiration Where to next Without hesitation Maintained by predication Now I see Among the sublimation My own lucid fascination Come with me Enjoy this libation And peaceful acclimation...Read On

Christmas Letter

Another piece in the Muse files, Dedicated to my heartbeat Deana.

Dear Santa, I need a moment in time.

As my world spins

Written on an emotional election night...whether you smiled or cried...may God bless us all.

Kneeling at his feet, Cheek resting on his knee, Quiet and inhaling his peace, While outside the banshees scream. Hatred bubbles and roils, Tempests howl and rage, Shrieks of anger and of bitterness, The inmates rattle their cage. His hand pets my silken strands, A gentle glance across my cheek, My eyes close with pleasure, My heart sighs in relief. This man is...Read On

Beautifully Broken, Perfectly Imperfect

"They make you fear your imperfections, but in fact, they are the diamonds of your being".

Love me, not for beauty, love me, for my deformity.  When I'm... Blanketed by darkness,  traversing sorrow's cavernous depths - a transmission of once healing light  now punctured, weeping silence. Love me,  could you still? Love me, through self-loathing, imprisoned by vulnerability and despair.  With your adoration, extinguish disparaging belief. Love me,  when cold...Read On

Dia De Los Muertos

A celebration of death of an old life

Staring at my own reflection  The face revealed is dead inside  Eyes have become cold and shallow  The spirit that lived there has died  I've let you do this to me  There’s no one to blame but myself  Believing in what should be love  I put my own life on a shelf  You took all I had to offer  And gave it a sly little nudge  But it wasn’t you loving me For it’s only you that you love  There...Read On

Lost In Love

Just nod if you can hear me

Why did you come here What is it that you fear Why do you vanish And then suddenly reappear Why did you pick me Did you think I'd not see The weakness in you Or this living hypocrisy Perhaps you saw it in me Itching and begging to be free Welcomed with open arms No longer some huge mystery Here we are, together at last Stuck trying to erase the past Now I have a partner To help throw...Read On

Grace

You move with a grace I could never possess, the hem of a skirt caught in a faint breeze, bare legs revealed as the wind rose in its almost silent seasonal symphony. And as where my heart is fitful, drawing restless thunder, yours is the calm before every storm I long to know. You can summon hardness from the soft, find smoothness along stubble with delicate wandering fingertips...Read On

The Magic Must Never End

This man, in darkness and night, in shadow and light

This man is my light in darkness and night Drawn to him Yearning for him Hoping my needs would couple with his And they did After dead ends encountered After dread doubts dispersed When the magic flowed out of his heart When his touch set me tingling with delight He made me his own Once for all He tells me just how I complete him And I know he accepts all I give In return he fulfills...Read On

Over The Sea

Over the sea Awaits his love Steadfast and unchanging Her word of loyalty A comfort to him Through the darkest of times A Northern Star One fixed point throughout the instability Over the sea Awaits his hope The promise of a new love and a new life Ever present and patient Whispered promises of fidelity and loyalty Through the rugged landscape And the elemental mistress that is...Read On

Yesterday's Smile

Like the steps to the rising dawn I'll be with you in song Bear with me my earthly wile As I reset the memories Of my mind's kaleidoscope With a fragrance of a dearin' smile And would thee seek a morrow's kiss If I sought your verse bliss On the other side of yesterday's sun As I reset the memories With flowers upon your pillow When the sun shines, my sweet fawn...Read On

Allow Yourself to Spin Widdershins

Release yourself into the winds, Allow yourself to spin widdershins. No better time to be alive, Allow the best to yet arrive. There is no fate, no destiny, Don't cast your lots, sing out, be free. Your sails unfurl and move you out To serve your dreams, to dance about.  Caressing breezes trace your face, You feel the grace in its embrace. Stay trapped in life as freedom sings About...Read On

Tappin' My Shoe

At times my rhetoric fails me When I'm pitching woo And tappin' my shoe While sippin' homebrew As the June bug flies But my heart is in its place As I kiss your finger tips And ask for your wed With a golden band ring When not tongue-tied As the June bug flies When I'm pitching woo And tappin' my shoe...Read On

Sending Off

What's the score?

Is it fate How we relate When things are great We celebrate We shift and spin Honoring our win Ignoring our sins The darkness within There is no pain For me to explain No way to complain When we've gone insane Going day by day Is there any other way Should I simply stay Is it time to walk away Perhaps a little nap A voyage sans map No arms around me wrap No love to fill the gap Until ...Read On

A Full Moon's Harp

Letting loose with a chortle of glee Of happiness in our martial whimsy Like life's carousel spinning our love And acorns falling from a tree As you hug me beneath the blowing leaves When the honey bees hum most tenderly I'll be kissing your lips to catch-me-up And with a gifted line we will twine our time As our love of life takes a shine Feeling the vibrations of the full...Read On

Sonnet — Heartbreak

Tell me truthfully how it came about, Explain to me where things went so astray, That joyful certainty should turn to doubt, Those bright flowers of love stained by decay. My aching heart is full of unnamed fears, Dreading to hear the unforgiving truth, Assure me that all will not end in tears That time itself will be unable to soothe. Speak words to prove my disquiet baseless, ...Read On

Believe In Soft Winds

I believe in soft winds and hat pins to stick Wind up widgets and gadgets that click And scratch off lottery tickets I believe in love words and incense scent With little soft kisses and silly sniffles And an embroidered hankie I believe in love and conceptual sins Making whoopee in compilations And harken the herald to the Man above I believe in wedding bells and wishing...Read On

Shattered Heart

My crazy love...

When I look back I feel I shouldn't have let you in You made me feel wanted You held my hand in my miseries I felt I found the one I craved You rekindled in me the lost passion Together we dove into the infinite ocean of love Finding in each other our refuge You meant the world to me I only saw you in the crowd Every second I think about you Without you I couldn't survive Why do I always...Read On

First Whisper

Dedicated to Enchanted1

Ever since that first whisper, you've been hard to resist The love that nourished from our friendship ended up difficult, to consist Our love grew strong and without boundaries when you came to me with just a whisper I have now followed you and gave you my mind, body and soul, and that will never be a blur.  We burst into energetic lovers, enticing, mesmerizing... sensual love making. ...Read On

A Poetic Flair

When stanzas of love Cleanse my shallow soul The cinders on the grate will flare And to those I have offended Leaving suspended by string With a poetic flair I make my amends Now washed of my sins With non toxic words And romance on the horizon  I'll be writing new letters With a poetic flair...Read On

Love So Far Away

So far away but our love has never been stronger.  So far away from each other but I feel you next to me.  I think of you every day in every way.  Every heart beat is just for you.  Though we will never meet I will never let you go.  Every morning I whisper 'good morning, my love' but not to the man lying next to me.  Even though I'm not your wife I pray she makes you happy.  I'm...Read On

Dance Me

Please, dance me to heaven.

Come dance with me one final time; I'll dance you up to heaven's door. We'll waltz around the moon and back and tip toe o'er the stars that soar. The lightning will enhance our steps as thunder rolls to set the beat. The Milky Way will be our guide while gentle breezes lift our feet. Come dance with me, I'll hold you tight in love's embrace, you'll never fall. One last love's glance,...Read On
