Love poems and poetry is a hugely popular section, proving romance isn't dead! They are literary compositions written with an intensity or beauty of language more characteristic of verse / poetry, than of prose.

Intent

Don't touch without intent Your fingers graze my soul A scar's path in its wake My heart's not for rent Only passion and zest Will I accept these days Arouse me with words Rise above the rest Pieces of my heart I hold close and protect Darkness lurks deep inside No more pulling apart Another change to mend Broken wings time to heal Our future not certain Certainly, not the end Sin now...Read On

Ballad for a Derelict Soul

I play dangerous games with the dark Like never knowing the difference Between the flicker of starlight and a thousand-mile string Of cheap motel signs Where you pull off out of a mule-kicked life And end up dancing alone in a room reeking of bleach With the afterimage of the girl working that liquor store You stopped in so many miles and hours back Who barely noticed you standing...Read On

Reverb

From a series of sonnets

After we are a tangle of limbs braided, our heat encased within blankets and our still, feverish forms, I try to listen to the endless  beautiful code that your heart makes. You're always trying to tell me something whenever we're not using words. This live wire between us speaks.   I hear you more in the reverb, breathe you between the beats, no matter how my fingertips touch. No matter...Read On

Are They There

With fingers so numb

And after we're gone who'll remember to care Despair waiting there for the loss all will bear For the loss  For the loss They show love and despair We will never return But remember to care Knowing despair that is already there When the chill sets in will they share that they care When their fingers are numb and their heart is still bare It's despair It's despair It's...Read On

Florally Speaking...

Say it with flowers!

I hear roses are red, and some violets are blue, which has nothing to do with  how I feel for you. Wisteria’s purple Queen Anne’s Lace is white. I hope that you know that I think you’re alright! Gardenias sure smell nice, sexy and sweet, but when it comes to those qualities you’ve got them beat. Paintbrush is orange (and for that there’s no rhyme) But in your busy life I   hope for me...Read On

Fears

Love is stronger than fear.

Around they swirl, Faster and faster. Closer they draw, Loathing, self-doubt and insecurity.   Tottering on the edge,  I can't seem to resist. Their seductive pull, Luring me in.   NO! His voice rings clear. Hands strong and firm, Pulling me from the brink.   Mine!  Beautiful!  Strong! His words break through. The fears that swirled, Fading quickly away.   Calm and safe, ...Read On

You Wore The Moonlight

You wore the moonlight like a secret, a closely guarded confession  to bloom against your skin. I was too afraid to touch then, already not knowing how to let go before this dangerous rubicon  of contact where our hands meet. Even then, I was already clinging too jealously. But you were interested in little things that I have trouble remembering that would in time become everything. I...Read On

Snow Capped Escape

The final journey of his mission has ended in Finland with his lover...in dedication to Sensual_Tom

Forever in your loving embrace Alas, this is the final week of your journey. Fingers entwine, just like lace Turning to me, assuring that you will be worthy. Trudging through the snow capped mountains Exploring nature and winter conditions. Your lips over mine, suppressed like drinking from a fountain Whispering your love and fidelity, from your own admissions. Hand in hand, we trudge...Read On

The Bluebirds in My Heart

How the bluebirds came to roost

There's a bluebird in my heart that Wants to get out,  But I'm too tough for him, I say, stay in there, I'm not going To let anybody see You - Charles Bukowski -    When loneliness became a part of me In such a way that others could not see. My heart forgot to feel, it hurt so much, And locked itself up tight against a touch. The bluebirds came to nest, they lost their way. They...Read On

Pania of the reef

A poem based around the New Zealand Maori myth of Pania of the reef

Still and silent stream in the midnight dark Resting amongst the flax is the night sky beauty herself Quenching a thirst from the sweet, still waters Winds that whisper vows and carry the faintest of spells Her eyes are deep pools of wintery water Playing in the shallows feels safe, any deeper and you risk drowning An otherworldly beauty emerges from her secret stream Such an ethereal...Read On
