When Shall We Wake?

Dedicated to my friend, Alan, and all those with a poetic heart

When shall we wake?  Shall we wait, wringing our hands, Until our last child smiles no more? Shall we wait until he’s gone to war?  Shall we wait, with a self-righteous tear,  as last he feels his mother's love, And ends his life  in the streets of our City’s  empty heart? When shall we wake? Shall we wait, clicking our tongues  as the newsman tells of the old woman who suffered in the...Read On

Crucified For Your Love

To the the love of my life.

  Sometimes I feel like I’ve been tortured by your love, Whipped, nailed, scarred, and dragged through the streets. Sometimes I feel like I’m bound forever into submission, For the painful sacrifice I’ve made for your love. Sometimes I feel I played the fool for a heart so cruel, Begging, pleading, and bleeding for your passion. Sometimes I wonder if I’ve won the battle but lost the...Read On

Amazing Sweet Grace

I had grasped my last straw And my eyelids closed I heard the cries of an angel As I passed on my way to Valhalla And it broke my heart For she had been in my dreams A lifetime it seems As I stepped from the escalator On the top floor of Shangri-La Many, many miles on high I lost all fear as my wife smiled My lover, my soul mate of sixty years As she kissed me with everything dear...Read On

First Light

Love at first light

We leave the kitchen a mess of spilt milk, crumbled bread crust, and honey dripping from a forgotten jar. Breakfast is on crumpled sheets clenched between tight fingers and crushed under the weight of two. Your heavy breath whispered between hard kisses sinks beneath my skin and warms my soul. I can taste your scent in my mouth as if licked from your hot skin: hints of orange peel body...Read On

Everlasting Friendship

For a spiky haired kid who took a chance on a friend

I wish you could see what you mean to me Where we have gone and where we will be We were two souls connected in the night An email that started a friendship so right  Tears, laughter, and naughty things  Fun times, joys, and stories of ping's Hush Little One and Seduction by Slumber These things we write without encumber  Seeing through the chaos in my head Helping me see what needs to...Read On

Interlude

The Magic Flute ... Illustrated by Lee Zimmerman

Her lips wrap around the instrument giving life The flow of the music from her flute is playing The notes are like the air she needs to breathe Her finger tips softly caressing the keys The melody it produce lingers in her skin The same blood flowing within her veins Her hair swaying as she plays the flute The music is giving life to her burning soul The pleasure of watching her plays the...Read On

In Love We True Completion Find

What means this palpitation in my breast, This savage wild elation in my mind? What power is this o’er my soul imprest That my sentient will is undermined, Leaving me prey to inchoate desires, Feverish with overwhelming yearning? Can this be love that has lighted such fires That my very soul with lust is burning? Against this force I have no sure defence, And a thousand darts loosed from...Read On

My Loving Addiction

How I love her.

I'm addicted to this feeling,  My need to have you near. Like a soothing warmth, it's in my heart, and it casts aside my fears. I'm enchanted by your smile,  and your sweet and tender eyes They keep the darkness from my soul  Even in the darkest night.  I'd be lying if I told you, I longed not for your touch, But it's not your scent or soft caress That my heart needs so much From the...Read On

I Wish

Wishing someone was near

I Wish Wish you were with me this sleepless night.  Wish I knew what you thought in dawn's light.  Wish I was in your arms that held me so tight  Wish I can honestly believe we will be alright.  Wish you were not gone so far out of my sight.  Wish I knew if I still bring you so much delight.  Wish I send above to the stars shining bright.  Wish we were dancing under pale moonlight.  Wish to...Read On

If You Really See Eurydice

Stolen kisses beneath the Oak A flash of a breast in the moonlight Tentative touches under the cover of darkness Muted pleasures as we veil ourselves in the forest Aphrodite-like perfection masquerading as Artemis Summer longing turns to Autumn lust Winter’s icy kiss becomes the whispered vows of Spring Libation to Apollo as we unite in a field in full bloom Playing joyful songs as my...Read On

Paperclip

I fell for his voice first As it flew through grey smoke Through loud cursing laughter Over clinking glasses A small gig, a small bar Just him and a guitar I saw On a hot summer’s night Through flickering dim light The captivating sight Of his body Edgy alley-cat grace A lazy easy pace The hungry-dangerous Smile on his stubbled face He called me his princess It fuelled the incess- -ant need...Read On

Your Love is Like the Snow Drops

Love is in the air in the early spring

Your love is like the snow drops, standing on parade, Your kisses are like the crocus, lighting up the glade   I would pick you, if I could and put you in my pocket, Else I would snip your fair bloom, and put it in a locket   You are my posey, your fragrance sweet yet beguiling, Like the dainty narcissus, you always leave me smiling   If someone came between us, they would know my ire,...Read On

A poem for a Lost Friend

"Write what you know you think you feel, write just for yourself.  Write the way you learned from me, and write for everyone else.  Sometimes they will love it, most often they will not...  Worry about that later, but for now just give it your best shot.    Poetry's a puzzle and we find our only way  To try to say the things we often fail to really say...  If I have taught you...Read On

Passion's Two Faces

It rolls in through windows doors and hearts left open It roars through walls knocking you flat Which is it, a plus or a poison? Many have felt its pull Wrapped in magic wings Bringing a light, a reason To finally sit up and live All seems brighter Your heart's weight is lighter Breathing deep, you revel In a feeling, that stays even in sleep Passion and love, oft mentioned Hand in hand,...Read On

Invisible Ink

I have invisible ink tattooed on me. I will no longer keep silent, I now share my secret. I'm a survivor and those who know Without me saying can tell perfectly. I don't look for pity, only salvation. I'm no longer ashamed to admit this. Each time I tell someone else I do not know, I become stronger, with every breath that I take. I was lost and alone and I lived in my own prison of...Read On

Deep in her heart!

She knew he was hers...

The moment she spotted him from across the room Goose bumps rose on her arms. But why? What was it, the way he looked? His tanned muscular body With blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. Or was it his smile And the way it brightened the entire room.   No, it was more … His laughter The way he pulled her close Holding her letting everyone know She was his!   No, to her he...Read On

How I Need Thee

Tell me, Am I to be compared to a flower  On a summers Morn. Laid down in the softness of grassy banks, My petals, slowly unfold As your stalk, grows strong and demanding. Glimpses of each other Across inches of space Accompanied by a hint of desperation, And a burning fire within. This feeling,  of unfettered lust, Falls on stony ground  Amidst the torturous numbness of separation. I want...Read On

The Moonshine

Let me tell you about the sun and the moon...

  The sun falls for you The moon falls for me It gets sad knowing The sun kisses you The moon knows the warmth The sun's presence beside you The cold it gives in her absence Knowing you'll wait for her coming Loving you is like going to the moon Knowing it's hard to breathe but Keeps going even without oxygen It's hard to breathe without you The sun rises for you The moon rises for me...Read On

Love Kills

the slide from love to hate

  They say it’s blind, Maybe, maybe not. But it blinds!   In the name of the father, The mother, One’s country. God!   We protect that, which we love, From suffering, from harm, from hate, Against all.   Beyond reason, beyond sanity, Beyond our own life. And in defiant defence is where we fail.   We are all one in our desire for love, The stronger our love, The more we...Read On

Forlorn Lover

When promises are made to be broken... A heart...

By the shore in the middle of the night, She always sits at the big rocks, Waiting for her lover to come,  Who promised to be there. By the shore in the middle of the night, She is always singing sad songs, That would make herself to tears, For the lover who never comes. By the shore in the middle of the night, She always looks up at the moon, Asking him of her heart's fears, For the...Read On

A Soul's Fool Heart

Frittering not the tallow 'neath the fallen dusk As my prose fails to describe the silence of it all Shedding darkness of my soul's fool heart In a collection with my mortal perception With soothing touch and talc of heartfelt dust  Sweet as your breasts upon my chest With a brush of the feather I pen my sins As your lips touch my poetic immunity Drowing curses of yesterday's omens...Read On

Fallen Angel

I have to make my stay worth my time...

Face raised up to heaven,  Anguish in her heart.  She has to content herself  Looking up to heaven above. For she is now a fallen angel Where any place will be hell. As she bows down her head,  Tears fall from her eyes.  She is fallen, her black wings  Are the proof for that.  As black as the raven crow  With tarnish on a dark soul.  She is a fallen angel now. She shakes her head as her ...Read On

Choose the kind of poison For your own entertainment.  Tell me your most secret desire, Your want and needs, I would gladly serve them to you In a platter on your sit. I am here to make...Read On

Set her heart free

Sometimes reaching out into the world is all it takes, but others it needs more

She looks in the mirror wondering why her deepest desires never come true. Is she unattractive because of her size  or maybe it's her personality? She just doesn't know.   Maybe she should accept the opportunity offered  but that just makes her sad  because she knows deep in her heart  that is not really her and honestly never really was.   Her thoughts drift to him.

Change Is Hard

Dedicated to those who helped me through this storm.

I'm starting to lose sight of all the things I changed for good, all those things I left behind are flooding back like I didn't think they could.

Soul Keeper

Love can touch you in ways you can never fathom. Yours forever!

I remember the day we first met, your smile caught my attention  It was like a fairy tale not written yet, our chemistry sparked tension   From that moment we knew, we can't do without one another Slowly shedding my fear to start anew, I waited for our time together   You were different from others, you made me realize my worth We became friends and then lovers, I didn't have second...Read On

What am I?

I’m dictated as an emotion, Lurking deep inside of your head. My targets subconsciously chosen, Once done so I'm difficult to shed. So much of your human behaviour, Is influenced by my compelling effect. History books full of accomplishments, And others you’d rather forget. I give you the power to move mountains, Or destroy others with a barrage of hate. The extremes of mankind’s...Read On

Finding Love Again...

It always returns to find you...

Our hearts feel your pain, yours is filled with regret Their corrosive words, tried their best to beset. Duplicitous ways, easily got you down More effort’s needed, for a smile than frown. Don’t give up my friend, don’t let yourself cower Too many turn sweet, into undeserved sour. You will love again, so be patient and wait It comes by surprise, so leave open your gate. Your words now...Read On
