Self-Confidence

Girl, Darling, My dear friend. Please don't do this. This, whatever you are doing, Just stop. You don't need a man to define you, Much less, a man to make you strong. You don't need a man to tell you, Just how beautiful, you really are. And you especially, Don't need a man, to tell you how sexy you are. Fuck that. Instead, walk to your mirror, And say "I am...Read On

In Love With My Best Friend

I treasure our magical moments we call pillow time Lying vulnerable as we each let our walls down A place where our fears have nowhere to hide We reached out to each other not wanting to drown I didn't fall in love with you between thrusts  Or as you gripped the sheets calling my name It wasn't even the red rose petals scattered Although your endless charm put many to shame It was as we...Read On

Still

Time, the healer of wounds.

The other day I heard, What once was "our" song,  As it played on the radio. This time though, it was different, The sadness and pain were gone, I didn't immediately think of you. Halfway through the song, The memories came, And I paused for a minute. To remember the way things were, The chats, the teasing, the fun we had,  And a smile tickled my lips. As the last note played, And the...Read On

Have You Ever?

... So deeply

Have you ever loved someone so deeply, so intensely, that you feel them deep in your soul? Have you ever loved so deeply, that your waking thought is of him, that you feel their breath on your skin? Have you ever loved so deeply, that you imagine his body close to yours. Can you feel his touch? Have you ever loved so deeply, when you close your eyes, you can see his smile? Have you...Read On

Ghost

Still haunting me

I thought I had laid you to rest my love, Buried you six feet under me. It feels like you hadn't left at all, that Not even a second has passed between us. I can feel you go through me, Every cell and through my whole body Of consciousness, every pore. You are my ghost of what we had and I thought you left permanently. You're my ghost and shadow, Every thought of mine...Read On

This Never-Ending Cycle

One look was all it took Before I felt myself fall again. It happens all the time, This endless cycle. I fall, I break, I heal. You come, you smile, Whisper to me your sweet poisonous words. I get sucked in, and the cycle starts again. How you have this hold over me, I'll never understand. This addiction, The need to be near you, The need to hear your voice, To feel...Read On

Sleep

Sleep my love, Close your tired eyes and Rest your head upon my chest. Close your eyes as I keep you safe, From harm, I softly sing into your ear. You are my heart and my loving angel, I promise to keep you out of harm's way. In me you've found a forever home, You won't ever have to leave. Sleep my love, Never leave these arms for too long. I vow to take care of you so tenderly. You're...Read On

Harem

The king, his harem Riding into the desert Forever searching. Looking high and low Searching for more gold, foolish Women to behold. They, in hungry greed, Can never be satisfied Riding all night, hard. Hoofbeats pounding sand, Lotus scent filling the air Draped in rarest silks. Lovers kiss and tell, Madness barks at the moon and Their gold gleams brightly. My...Read On

Jealousy

A love so big, Yet, hate seems to consume it all, Burning it to the ground. These feelings, Mixed emotions. It's so confusing! What do I do?! Leave me be! But please, I beg, love me too? How do I describe my feelings? How easily they can change when you are the factor. How do I start? Where do I start? This jealousy is ugly and rude. The green monster cannot...Read On

Storm

There's a storm brewing in my heart tonight. You are the vortex that fills every breath that I take. It is your essence that I love and truly adore, watch out for There's a storm brewing in my heart tonight. I'm missing you harder than the concrete Under my feet and I feel leaden without you. The storm sends tears down my cheeks like warm rain As my emotions intensify with each...Read On

Guiding Light

Shines bright through the night fog.

A night journey home, tall flickering light shines bright through the night fog. Guide us through the remnants of once majestic vessels; broken and laced across the shallows, as if a reef. Love destroyed long ago. Torn apart and smashed into 1000 shards of Suspicion, Resentment, Lies, and Whores. A reef of grief. Each sunken barbed fragment, a shard of once whole Love, ...Read On

Tuesday

Just a note to somebody I'm having an affair with...

You are so hard to handle... I can't talk and I can't think... I could light a candle Or just have another drink... (Don't give us away...) What more can I say? Don't give  us away... Complicated fairy, Oh god how I love your shine... Life is so contrary... And I know that you're not mine, but (Don't give us away...) What more can I say? Don't give  us away... ...Read On

Missed opportunity

Has she lost her everything....

She arrives home logs into her computer slowly her smile turns into a frown. Her love has been trying to get her leaving so many messages as she keeps reading She feels her eyes well with tears as the messages, get sadder, she feels his breaking heart. If only she had not overslept and been in such a rush to get to her appointment. Or had phone credit she could have stopped all this...Read On

Family, Friends, Lovers

For my special friends

We're all good friends and often talk on the phone, But together, individually we feel all alone . In life’s great big puzzle, we’re each missing a piece. We keep searching for it, and that will not cease. We all help each other though each passing day. Our love is real, and that will not sway. Together, individually we get lonely and blue. With the touch of a phone...Read On

Walking Among Daffodils

Lines written to the love of my life after a lifetime of happiness together

It was a day just like today, I remember, The beginning of spring, a day of fresh beauty. Vanished were the harsh and bitter winds of winter. The landscape dull and heavy under a sullen sky, And the very earth hard like iron, cold and dead. But that was all forgotten now, just like a dream From which we had awakened into a new world, Redolent with hope and promise, lifting...Read On

Uncoupled

Uncoupled from expectation, I believe I can be everything that you deserve, be the shapes in your eyes where the light strikes to illuminate them as vibrant and potent as the torches that hang in our night sky. Just slow this down, I'm only winded from the chase, not from when our hands join and our steps are harmonious taps along the road. The sound is like concentrated rainfall,...Read On

The Winner Takes It All

Listening to Abba. Popular music often mirrors life. That's why it's popular. The winner takes it all. You thought it was moving right along. And really, You were only Treading water, While she was rescuing another. Another heart to fill her emptiness, The emptiness you knew was there, And wanted to declare You could touch, And succor. But  The winner takes it all. You were too slow,  And...Read On

Did You?

Did you my love, ever really feel the need? The pull of me... Across your aching belief That love, pure love is not what we make But the depth, the hunger, that everlasting ache Promises you made never meant to fulfil The taste of the end so bitter so still So I ask you today this hour this night Did you ever see a future when you held me so tight? You whispered my name as you came...Read On

Destined

This is when soul mates are destined.

I pledged to you my love, my life. I'd always planned to be your wife. Even though your face I never saw, the stars foretold, there was no flaw. I felt your restless search for me. I held my heart outstretched to thee. When born we were destined to meet, two lives alone with one heartbeat. Then walking down life's path you came. I knew twas you, yet not your name. I felt you near...Read On

Marks of love

Silent whispers of the wind Rustling long straws on a shore, Twinkling specs of sunshine Playing on the surface Of an ocean of billion drops, Salty like tears shed throughout time Into its endless vastness. Waves breaking against the beach, Sand filled with memories Of footsteps covering the soft blanket. Steps, small and large, Made by countless people Leaving a mark for a moment...Read On

Love Reborn

The poet sings of reconciliation, and the renewal of vows of love

My dearest wife, it has been such a long winter, Hard and bitter, draining the heart and soul of hope. It has been doubly hard for you, so much sadness, Almost too much to bear, with the illness of friends, And frozen pipes, and the children's difficulties, Such a long catalogue of woes, you look so tired, New lines of care on your face, and fresh streaks of grey Staining the...Read On

A Place Out of Time

someone else thought it good enough to be here, so here it is.

Lost Speak and be Heard, I hide in Shame, The Death of Desire, And I am to Blame. A Voice is Silenced, It's Death screams out, My world torn apart, Left in Doubt. Hope and Despair, War from Within, When will it finish? Where does it Begin? Acceptance and love, Could have been mine, If I hadn't been Lost, In a Place out of Time....Read On

Peace

With you I know peace

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

My Yearning

This is a poem of a silent love.

The waiting is hard for me to stand. I yearn to see his face or touch his hand. I need to hear his voice and see him smile. I want to spend time with him for awhile. He dare not ever know how deeply I feel. My love for him is so very real. I yearn for his touch, his lips, his eyes.  He is so passionate, so caring and wise. He is engaged to my dearest friend.  My declared love...Read On

I'm a believer

You only find that person who can love the real you once and it has nothing to do with age

Wake up, blink sleep out of your eyes, look around and see, it is a whole new day and I am here to stay. The sun is up, blazing burning bright, It fades the darkness if only for today. You only get one chance, one moment to make a dream last, So take it, grasp it between your hands, take a breath, close your eyes, take a leap. What does it hurt to say okay, give love a fair chance, we...Read On

A lifetime of love

Time of spring, Shy, little smiles, Stolen, secret glances, Blushing cheeks and butterflies, The beginning of youthful love. The first kiss, Fumbling hands, Racing hearts and hormones As two young unite. Moving into summer, Passion and desire, Heat, bodies on fire, Lovers knowing each other’s bodies, Every little secret, Bringing the other into paradise, An ocean of pleasure,...Read On

Accept Me

A love letter to my husband

I'm odd, I laugh, I cry and I sin. You take me back and love me again. For both of us that is a win. At night you cradle me in your arms, a hand on my hip. I know at any time I can reach out a finger and brush it along your soft lip. You accept me now knowing my failures, quirks and needs. You welcome me back making me love you more now, than when our marriage was just a seed. Stay with...Read On

Silly girl

Silly girl, When will you finally learn? You don’t really matter, You never did. For a moment in time You believed, Again, That someone really cared. Silly girl, Have history taught you nothing? It is never about you, It is about someone, anyone. You have no real value, A mirage in the dessert, A wonderful fantasy for a minute, But fake, not real. Silly girl, Stop giving...Read On

Trembling Bridges

Into misty swirling drifts of doubting  creep the feeble fears that feed regrets remorselessly until the dawning. Droplets of lovelorn dread bedew your flesh while the shadows cover your vision of what might have been but is no more. Is there no pathway to regaining your bearings and rebuilding  the mansion of memorable embraces once found but now unredeemed  since the shade crept in. ...Read On
