A Tempest Of Lust

I proffered my body, and gave you my heart

Your love was warm, like deep summer time, Passion personified, could your body be mine? You stood there and watched, beckoning me, To make love to you, to set my cravings free. You saw my thirst, and offered the ocean blue, Took all I could give, the moon, the stars, even the sunset too, You measured my lust, by how deep I would fall, And judged my need, by how low I was willing...Read On

Cyber Love or Cyber Games

Is it love or just a game.

Words that you write To your keyboard lover Could it be a tad trite When you're together Love found on a screen Best to keep as a fantasy Keep it to a particular scene You must keep your sanity Do you share your life To make it seem real Life of a real wife Maybe best to conceal If in pain should you share Should you just stay in the moment Do you think the other really cares Do you...Read On

...of Marigolds

The woods unfold with meadows, and brooks, bound by gardens of marigolds. With a basket of sonnets, and a faraway moon, we play amongst the shadows. In copse of trees, needles dance, on the rind of a knotty pine,  as rust turns to dusk. As a halo of light,  and a banner of rays swoon down,  a glowing night of soon be. On a whisk of wisp, sensual bliss, with a smile, we kiss,...Read On

To My Love

For she who moves me

As I lie in bed, you come to me Your body next to mine. Enfolding me in your arms, Your heart a furnace against mine. How did it start? A gentle poke, a kind word. Time reveals you, You become a presence. Like a negative you develop in my mind. Words waft between us, Innocent ethereal words. The image develops now revealed, Unfolding, as flower spreading its petals in the sun. ...Read On

Our Secret Garden

The beauty and passion of the garden

The evening breeze, wafting over orange blossom Mixed with the aroma of blackcurrant leaves The birds and the bees, in midst of garden’s bosom A gift for you, a spray of freshly-cut sweet peas The thyme and the rosemary, oregano and tarragon A herbarium of love, a sweetly scented verse Words crafted for you, my lovely paragon Written ere the day ends, and sealed in a purse Give me...Read On

...Over Shantytown

If wishes were moments in dreams of sleep Tweaking in rhymes so deep, sort of speak With a moon glow over shantytown Feeling your breath, a silent wisp I would have volumes of pages to keep And press flowers to wile away poetic hours Leaving trivialities where they belong If stanzas were bold in print with your scent I would have gilded petals past tense As your caresses...Read On

Shake My Willows

The effervescence of you In the quiver of my mind Beneath a copse of trees, Down a path, a distance dream And a scent of love,  As you dance pantomime Like lilacs on satin sheets, Your smile adorns my memory Of drifting forest leaves, And the whispering night breeze  Shaking the willows  As my muse sleeps  On the midnight clover Next to my chest Embracing my telltale heart...Read On

From Sipping Shallow Tea

Skipping over the monotonous lines Of black roses and molting quills  The melancholia at dusk Saying sayonara to my past harks From sipping shallow tea As ebony has turned to scrimshaw And words are fairer than air With a bust of your stature I stare On the mantle of my new found soul Scuttling chapters of gray tomes As your kisses rekindle my life And my wrought is now naught ...Read On

Come Back To Me

Just a silly love song

When you are tired Or just feeling empty When you've had enough Come back to me. When the disco's over And your eyes can see You are all alone Come back to me. When nothing makes sense And the world becomes mean I am here with open arms Come back to me. If ever you're afraid That there is no such we Wait just a minute longer Come back to me Quiet the noises Slow your heartbeat Move a...Read On

While I Steal A kiss

Oh! What mortals you and I  With poetic elocution  Before the fat lady sings As she warbles off key  On a symphony's love song Breathing scent of flowers And wild weeds at lusty hours  Feeling warmth of your breasts While dancing on panes of grass  Like a weathering spring Beneath showers of a mist  On paths of new mown While I steal a kiss Before the fat lady sings As she warbles off...Read On

Riders In The Sky

Its either do or die When all is said, And poetically spoken  About tokens of halos. Threading the needle of life  Into the storm of the eye,  On the plains of yens, Only angels can fly. Stirring desires of fires,  On flatlands of sins, Like cyclonic winds Grabbing reins to my heart. As if riders in the sky, Thunder saddles up, When all is said, Only angels can fly....Read On

'Neath Our Wings

With God's shadow 'neath our wings In oceans of new moan grass Raining down a gilded glow  Sharing wedding bells quell While caroling a marigold sing Whispering songs and compose In waves of caressing meadows  On a carpet of romantic clover As the morning tides swell  On this day our bands of gold  And gilded vows of prose As bobbin of life's thread begins  With God's shadow 'neath...Read On

Shattered Truth

Broken hearts heal slowly...

Deliver me This package broken shattered by false illusion a sledgehammer of deception. Mistrust leaving scars created on loves jagged edges. Emotional cuts so deep can't be medicated or,  covered with your tepid bandage of false covenants. Living in fear of yesterday's choice's, mind blocked in a  mental prison sentence. No trust without forgiveness no pardon without purge. We do our...Read On

Hylas And The Nymphs

Their cunning voices coyly soothed my fear. Their whispers damp and cool, a subtle treat.  They tempted me with pledges, in each ear, To sate my every bliss, most welcomed feat. The charms of ageless beauty drew me nigh. Pervasive sparkling visions swelled my dreams. Soft dainty fingers stroked, eyes met my eye, Lest I resist such sweet seductive schemes. They trusted I could not...Read On

Lost Forever

What if your soulmate was never born? Not a political statement, but in the dead of night, I wonder.

I miss you in the dead of night the soulmate that I'll never know I miss you in the morning light the love that I can never show I've waited and I've stopped to look a secret, an unfinished book a whisper in somebody's ear the thought, the overwhelming fear what could have happened,  why did you go? someday I would have loved you so If I could, I'd make you warm, and simply hold your hand...Read On

Petals In The Wind

As the pendulum of the metronome 'tocked At my humble writing desk Devilishly aroused, with an instigator's brush With the rhythm of the ticking clock Bewitched by a musing's kiss With a serpentine's wish And sensuality well defined You caress the evergreens of my mind Like potpourri and a wafting aria  Your touch, warming my blush As a shadow in the dark Melting my tallow As the ink...Read On

Twinkling From A Jar

By far, my midnight star With a light twinkling from a jar As if hanging from above On the corner of a rainbow In proximity of my sleeping dreams And like a Grand Harp of a zodiac's swoon I feel your soothing caress As your breath quilts my flesh Laying your head on my chest With dawn on the horizon And dew like snow In fields of lilies beneath a willow A warming...Read On

Grand Love

Just another silly love song

You told me to run But never said how far I'm still running Chasing falling stars You told me to fall But never where to start I'm still falling With a loving heart You told me to call But never what to say I'm still calling Asking you to play You told me you'd wait But never said how long I'm still dancing Singing silly songs You're always with me Isn't our life grand We're still...Read On

Merely to Cherish

Is one allowed merely to cherish, Or must one also offer their love. Do the two walk hand in hand As we did once in better times. So simple yet complex When we plumb the depths Of definite devotion. And there was a deep devotion For me. At least, for me. I still cherish the thoughts, The memories Of time spent Touching  Together and across The void. Still cherish. Would it ever...Read On

Bordering Crocuses

With a longing for sentiment This old 'losopher dabbles in paint From the easel of my soul And the landscapes bordering crocuses  With a pallet of prosing words As your lips seek my caress On the futon beneath the oak Where the windmill grinds Beyond the tip of your brushing blush As you bare your alabaster wear Laying in seasonal comfort While touching me with a kiss With a breath...Read On

Poetic Fancy

With a will of my quill I spun  A dream from the dusk just past As your breasts soothe my flesh I dreamt a lyrical tune... Antebellum Lea Of poetic fancy and delightful tea As she smiled with blushing cheeks Kissing my chest on the plains of my heart As her fingers caressed my penis... Antebellum Lea Beneath a wash of the morning dawn With golden rings we will wed As...Read On

Cosmic Corruption

I came in from the storm, seeking shelter from disgrace, My heart racing faster than a cannonball in space, My weary brain asleep on a bed of nails, Resting in a coffin full of ice and fine lace. Waltzing Space Odyssey, twirling round and around, Everything and everyone a moulded candlelit blur, If only for a moment I'd stop time enough to breathe, Find some needed gravity and feel...Read On

The Voyage

The boat sets out gently propelled, By the currents of time, Making its way towards a meandering River. The currents draw it onward, Inexorably towards faster waters. Past shoals and rapids ever forward, Pausing only to embark a companion, To share the voyage. Strange lands glide past, Exotic landscapes where one companion departs, Only to be replaced by another. Ever faster flowing past...Read On

Your Eyes of Love

What he does to me.

As I look into your eyes I feel loved for the first time in my life. True peace and contentment from the start as our eyes meet and hold. You consume my mind with passion's kiss as fireworks crackle while I close my eyes to meet your tender lips brushing against mine, pushing harder. Your arms holding me so tight, as if you are afraid I might try to escape. But, why, when I too, am...Read On

Moths to Flames

Why are moths led by flames, eternally drawn in to burn?

Entranced by the beauty of the fiery flicker. Moths to flames drawn to burn, but why? Mind ensnared and heart beats quicker  leads the moths to dance and die. Never understood what was the draw, how or why such a course was flown. What formed such a fatal flaw, the moth's fate already known. Until the day I met my flame and found a way to understand, when her voice called my name ...Read On

Nightmare Within A Dream

Ever have a nightmare while you are inside a dream....

A waking nightmare Cloaked within a dream Can it possibly be As real as it seems?

He Took

What my love took from me.

He took so many things from me, he took my life and set me free. He took my tears from strife and pain and taught me how to live again. He took my fear of trust and hope and taught my spirit how to cope. He took my memories of shame, to show me I was not to blame. My broken bones from beatings gone, he soothed with touch and patience's song. He took my thoughts of suicide and vowed...Read On

Flowers of His Love

He gave me gifts of love

  My love gave me a flower, right before my first real kiss. A morning glory of such depth, I sunk in its abyss. He held me close and promised me protection all my days. We watched the stars, the Milky Way, while in his arms I lay. My love gave me a flower, on the day that he proposed. On bended knee he handed me a gentle little rose. Through tear filled eyes I pledged my love as he did...Read On
