Indefinable

One day spent with someone you love can change everything. Mitch Albom

You were born this way. You can try to outrun it, pointlessly deny the truth or make up excuses and mask the true nature. It is always present in you But it remains indefinable. You cannot, however, change who you are. You were born this way, fiery desire echoing inside, a constant ache within felt deep in the core. Passion burns like fire, a blaze seemingly foreign yet consuming your soul....Read On

My Love For Simplicity

A poem dedicated to my love, Simplicity

How often does love confound us?  How often does love perplex?  How often does love confuse us? And how often does love cause stress? I've loved enough times to realize  It's often far too complex.  The battle of wills  And the pain it instills  Often turns joy into vex. What I long for these days is more subtle It's something so easy to say. I long for a love with no trouble  Just a...Read On

A Lifetime Of Love

A couple reflect on their life together.

A couple together for many years They reflect on their life together A life filled with happiness and tears A lifetime of being each other's lover Years of special occasions and holidays Children that are grown now Their love for each other fills their days Years ago they renewed their vows Sickness has entered their home But their love gets them through it Her husband has...Read On

Bonded

choose love above everything,

A simple meet in an unlikely place with many against them Two Hearts together united as one Two Lovers with the same destiny Two souls fighting to find one another for a kiss an embrace Nothing will stand in their way They chose their own path A white rose a red rose bonded thru fire cleansed with pure water One choosing to kneel the other to guide cherish and protect and in...Read On

The Grievance

Though lovers be lost love shall not. ~ Dylan Thomas Read

How to deal with life? When a heart is made to pieces,  when disillusion breaks your world. I never imagined crying a deception. It is said that time does not exist. It is said that it is all a process, that everything passes us by, that time is not consensual. No more kisses, no more tender moments, no more love making. The music is gone. In your arms I felt deceptively happy, though it...Read On

The Train And The Tunnel

A metaphor of erotic sex and love

The train had been coming for years, always passing through the tunnel with loving care. Its steam and smoke adding to the tunnel’s love for it, hugging the walls near. It passed so close to its walls it seemed to be scraping them, and providing them with noise, rubbing and loving the tunnel. The tunnel loved the train. When the train entered the tunnel, its big round light was bright,...Read On

Away For Days

I know the reasons you had to leave me Maybe it's the best for now, I can be free I look over at your side of the bed At first I cried, then I let myself be led I'd known him for years, he's a good friend I wish I could tell I thought about it in the end Sad and lonely, missing us, I tried I was weak, gave in to a need, I lied When you'd call, ask was I sleeping well I'd tell you no I...Read On

Your Hand

When the night comes for dreams...

Tell me what to do, My hand is your hand. Where do you want them, Touching, Caressing, Grabbing, Rubbing. Tell me what to do, My body is yours. To command. Do you want it, Aching? Wanting? Needing? Cumming? Tell me what to do, I am yours to command. Say the words I am longing to hear. My body moves to the sound of your voice. My mind reaches yours. My body aching to...Read On

Love In Many Colors

Love is so many colors Many different shades So much to discover The colors just cascade Love is so powerful It needs to be cherished It can be very colorful And even very blemished Finding love is a treasure It's like finding fine art Two people that find pleasure They've found love in their hearts Two souls who meet by chance They know they were destined to be They embrace their...Read On

...of a by-and-by

With a landscape stretched on a taut canvas  A poetic dimension in lyrical verse As a thousand ardors bring me to this place With a gilded sonnet tied in a bow To paint your portrait with a soft touch While the crickets play their cellos In four strings of a concerto As freckles smile on your lovely face Wiggling your hips in Belgium lace A romantic swoosh of a breeze blow For that's the...Read On

Gluttony

The pleasure of exploring ....

Craving for you, You mouth watering, So sinful thing. Yearning to taste you In my mouth Again and again. So many days wanting, Seeing you everywhere. My mind goes ballistic. The pleasure of exploring, Aching every minute. Needing to have you. Lusting thoughts of you, Just to have you For a quick taste. Greedily looking for you  everywhere. Disgusted not being  Able to have you. ...Read On

Poetic Incarceration

Seeking to break out of poetic incarceration  By approaching words most carefully As coffers of my mind dwell in archives  In my deliverance masquerading as a bard Yet desires of lust hold me in obsession As love takes shine with kiss and admiration Dancing on pages of this poet's imagination  Stored in verses the four suits of the year Autumn, Spring, Winter, and Summer near ...Read On

Down From Above

Walking the brook stones wading up to my knees Feeling the cooling tingle the coming of breeze While sipping the broth of amber tea With a sweet essence of you As ripples of love ring down from above For whom the boughs brings pinecone words Aerating a poetic umber of forest leaves...Read On

One Stop Solo

Awake me from my last sleep While I rest on pillow-down Anointing me with your love Before the cataracts blind me Dimming the lights as I gasp So that I can see you As my breath becomes shallow And when the spirit at the gate Rings down for my number I will whisper with a kiss As I pass... To everlasting tomorrows For things will come to past When the Good Lord ask...Read On

Do You See The Moon?

Love is a shared dream...

I wonder if you see what I see When you look to the sky at night Do you see the moon that I see Is it full, mysterious, and bright I wonder if you feel what I feel In bed before you go to sleep Do you feel your heart beat Does our distance cause you weep I wonder if you consider what I do Thinking of when we first meet Do you believe this love is strong Or will it cower and retreat ...Read On

Edge Of A Silent Tomorrow

Like a raven's breath I will pass On the edge of a silent tomorrow Into the jaws of inequity Before the shroud covers my gasp And when they carry me away Just whisper a loving kiss With no damp corsages And feeling no sorrows For I became a better man When embracing our life of sin...Read On

Someone, Someday

Sweetest darling, I hope that someday Someone will love you every bit as much as I once did. And I hope she'll give you the things that I wasn't able to. If doesn't work out and when you're gone from her, I wouldn't want her crying over you. Or not able to smile for days, like I did. But since I know that she will, I hope at least this time you'll go back to her. Saying just how much you...Read On

What You Don't Know

When all that we have is my love...

You may not know for I won’t tell just how much you've cast your spell Stolen moments borrowed time shared jokes happy lines Thoughts of you makes my heart race awake and alone I imagine your face With just your presence makes me feel anew for all I want is a moment with you Each word you sketch a perfect reflection who can blame those that steal...Read On

Parallel 49

Only imaginary lines separate us...

Not a wall, just a border Barrier to enter is much shorter Allowing us some deserved order Our International Date Line. Yes, it’s a real thing You tug on my heart string Takes the edge off my sting I cannot stop smiling. You and me belong Why did this take so long? Now hear you in every song Are you listening? Things have a time and place We were not in a race I now see your pretty...Read On

Anfractuous Twining's

For destiny will be in her green eyes On attic-salt of her anfractuous twining's In the still of the midnight choir  Over bannisters shining Flowing silently like soft waters In proximity of her sensuality On a pond of frozen dreams As breezes blow through her hair While she dances in meadows at dawn Until the morning's bell rung On attic-salt of her anfractuous twining's...Read On

As You Sleep

I wonder if this goes by in a blinding flash for you, the tranquil sleep gripping your warm still body now. How you rest here almost motionless, legs seamlessly braided with mine, chest rhythmically rising and falling like some beautiful engine I don't understand... I don't think I'll ever know. I know you more than anyone here, though. How you were pure motion earlier, wrapped...Read On

She Cries

She cries silently in the dark, Holding her pillow so tightly. Husband sleeping next to her, oblivious to her heart. He forgets, he forgets that he loves her, forgetting to ever show her anymore. A part of her dies as she puffs on a cigarette, with mascara running and Hot tears burning on warm, pink cheeks. It was long ago when their wedding vows were said in front of all, a beautiful...Read On

Scars

Maybe I was never inside of you. We rush past and back through ourselves, reaching for some mutual light, some radiance that will not let memories turn from nectar to poison. Even if we leave, I'll hold on to some things... Kissing where scars made signatures on skin, a deep story told through each one, it doesn't matter how they came to be, I still jealously cling to the taste. How each...Read On

Inextinguishable

“To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.” Pablo Neruda

We are the slow burn. The sudden collision of our energies kindled the fledgling sparks, a convergence that made us hunger for a friction that would lead us to a luminous ignition. Alight with lustrous flare and nurtured with ferocious need, these flickers will cling, entire. Interminable heat building to a blaze that will consume. So when you ask me to never let...Read On

M.y.p.l

There is something so elegiac, so darkly beautiful in the approach, elegant strings hovering softly, rippling through the still night air. I hear endless messages in the dissonance. I think of snowfall caught in your hair, moonlight glistening in silken strands, eyes aglow with some forlorn memory that ebbs away as your hand slips into mine. It's not so wrong to have met here, in...Read On

Give Me Your Hand

Know the power of your own touch

Give me your hand that I may bring it to my chest so you can feel how strong and how fast you drive my racing heart. Give me your hand that I may draw it to my cheek so you can feel how you cause my face to redden and warm with desire Give me your hand that I may place it in my own so you can feel how you cause my fingers to liven with tenderest touch Give me your hand that I may rest it...Read On

Six Degrees Of Imagination

In six degrees of this poets imagination But a moment apart in separation And a decimal's breath from a kiss  With a phantasm cubic equation  Using a geometric T-Square In lassitude seeking your touch  As the sand rings down my eyes Rowing gently in my dreams  On the wings of enchanted love  In six degrees of this poets imagination...Read On

Soft Side Of A Dream

Blinded by a moment's heavenly spent Daydreaming optics nearsighted I vent While in still waters of a poetic ripple A silent soliloquy of a wood thrush While on the soft side of a dream  In the wind chimes of my mind With sentiment of love painting with a touch  On the canvas of an easel with a blinded brush...Read On

We Really Should

After a bit of reflecting....

Perhaps I went A little too far But touch me not Keep me in a jar By the door Waiting for more Is it right Or am I wrong To sit and hum That silly song In my head After all I read I hate to admit You may be right With you in my head Dreaming all night I was wet But that's all you get Just a thought If you were near I would beg That you stay right here. Somethings growing Is it showing?...Read On

Perhaps...

Maybe I see things differently

Perhaps I told you This once before Perhaps I love you Perhaps nothing more Perhaps I forgot to say This isn't a game Perhaps you'd hear me Perhaps without blame Perhaps one day You will understand Perhaps there's much more Perhaps the Master's Plan Perhaps next week You'll see he's not man Perhaps I will wait Holding Master's hand Perhaps my Master Is simply the Tao Perhaps you'll...Read On
