I Am A Lover Of Words

A word after a word after a word is...

I am a lover of words.  I like  What they do to my tongue. Each letter  Whispers its own tune  To me,  When spoken together  A song. Like love,  How it opens the lips,  Extends the tongue,  Closes with a kiss,  Sounds hopeful.  How the letter O,  When accentuated,  Can leave you breathless.  The entire face must work together  To form it. Fuck…feel...fight…fun…  How do...Read On

Sweetness

And this is what satisfaction tastes like...

My love for you is Sweetness Like honey suckled Directly from the comb Sweeter than sweet Unadulterated By exposure to mere air We lay upon raw silk Cleansed By the sweat of our own bodies Floating on the scent that intoxicates And the tastes that call us Back for more So sweet Is your touch That I am set anew Each time you reach For me Anticipation A fire spreading Beyond just heat...Read On

Never Forget

Everyone looks back today, Remembering such great loss, Knowing how much is owed by so many, To so very, very few. But I find myself thinking, Not of what I owe to many, Just of what I owe to one, What I owe to you. You saved me before I knew it, Before you went to war, You saved me from a hard life, Saved me from being poor. I look back as an old woman, To that distant love affair, We...Read On

Damaged Goods

Not an ending, but a beginning.

Now, That you have made love to me, Why do you withdraw? My light in this sea of darkness, That which flows around me And that which flows within, Why do you speak of endings When this is our beginning? Why do you issue warnings, Add addendums to explain That which is you? You and I need no excuses, No apologies, No confessions. Do you not know There are no souls Recognizable, Standing on...Read On

Comfortable

For every person that has ever settled for comfortable, may they find amazing.

Comfortable... It is the word that has always described me. Comfortable in my skin, with my femininity. Comfortable in who I was as a sexual being. Then without warning, you simply happened to me. I was unaware of all the things in life I did not know or even begin to understand. You came to me and touched my heart, just by gently holding my trembling hand. Kissing you was like...Read On

And You Will Know

One day he will find you  He will be the one across the room  Or behind you  Out of view  But you will feel him  Your heart will flutter  From recognition  A familiarity  A wish  Beyond your comprehension  You will remember  Something you had not realized  You missed He will look into your eyes  You will see the rawness  Of what he desires  He will not blink  Or hesitate ...Read On

How Do You Know

These questions are not new to me or you.

How do you know when the senses lie  And the heart deceives?  It is only a mere smile thrown in your direction,  A manipulation of phrases  Already heard  That quickens your pulse.  And yet,  His name dances off your lips. What words are not spoken when eyes meet  And lock permanently together?  What static flows between two warm willing bodies  And stands hair on its end? How do...Read On

American Cinderella aka Route 66 Heartbreak

You're not a true cowboy until your heart gets tossed into the desert.

Cinderella, oh Cinderella, I heard you went to the ball. You pranced and danced, twisted and shook your booty. In grand fashion, my Cinderella, you tripped the light fantastic. Dolled up, long legs and juicy red lips, you went grinding on the prince, twirling and parading in the spotlight. I saw you driving down Route 66 in an old Chevy, top down, wind in your hair, with...Read On

Tell Me A Story

Give me your gift.

Reality is heavy  Duty is steep  Tell me a story To help me sleep It doesn’t need a hero  A middle or an end  Just start with the words  And let us begin Give me fear  And hate and pain  Sometimes, crying  Releases the strain Make me laugh  And dance and sing  Get lost in the music  Forget every damn thing Give me love  Passion that endures  If only for one night  ...Read On

Reservations for Two

Lying naked wrapped in your arms Your body so warm against mine It is easy to imagine in that moment That just maybe I can still be saved Lying there I can picture the jagged pieces That make up my tenuous existence Being delicately pieced back together Bound tightly by our invisible bond I listen to the sounds of you sleeping Slow deep breaths that each speak to me Quiet whispers...Read On

Leningrad

I never know what they mean! *LAUGHS!*

There's a kind of rush-hush in the pale night sky...  I can write my name in my smoky breath.  And the moon comes up and mocks my faded sigh.  It's midnight lost in Leningrad...  I'll be late home again.  Her flat is cozy and it's warm.  I never meant to cause you pain.  I never meant you any harm.  And may God forgive me  Because you won't.  And may God forgive me.  Because I don't. ...Read On

Her Fight

We all battle our own demons. I am just a girl and this is my demon.

Silently she faces her personal war She did not choose this battle It was chosen for her. It is hers now and only she can choose to fight back. Illness tries to rob her of her future Joy and hope are muffled by pain and fear Her inner light may sometimes flicker But she fights hard to let her light shine. Now curled alone on her bathroom floor she begs for the pain to please stop. ...Read On

I Will Love You Tomorrow

The greatest part of me came alive in your embrace. I found my footing while looking into your eyes. I finally let myself breathe when your deep kisses took my breath away. Together walking hand in hand my fingers effortlessly filled the spaces between your fingers. I lost myself as I became consumed through the act of saving ourselves from ourselves. I held my breath while ...Read On

Bitten

For Jason, my Cariad

Skin intact, until I met you A heart to match, and then I let you Shot through the sky with the force of a rocket Always by your side, in your ear, or your pocket You reached for my hand, but instead grabbed my soul With each day that passed, you tightened your hold Never thought I would love you, never thought I would blush Never thought I'd lose you, and it'd hurt me this much...Read On

Sometimes To Write Of Love

A poem about love.

Sometimes to write of love, tender feelings, longing and desire. But is that love? Sometimes sweet but often bitter. Or is it passion, a battle fought, a war of attrition? Love? Is it surrender or victory complete or mutual annihilation? Does love possess the soul or auction the heart? Is there fair exchange? It is torment and exhilaration, being one, becoming fractured. The pieces...Read On

There Is No Love Without Pain

A poem.

Love is life’s cruel mistress, And life’s crowning triumph. Love embitters the soul, yet conquers the heart. Love is never easy, And will die without toils. It is langour and sweat, the power and rejuvenation. Love brings this man to his knees, pushes his face into the dirt. It gives light into his darkness, and delivers joy to his world. Love grows in the wound and the healing. It is the...Read On

Tear Drops

Tears are the full of words too difficult to speak.

Tear drops are like snowflakes No two are exactly the same, Each one has a different meaning A different place from which it came. Some tears celebrate new joys Others the pain of a sad ending, Tears can come from pure delight Or come from your heart mending. Each falling tear drop is unique Slowly falling without a sound, But silently telling it's own story Inside it, pure emotion...Read On

A Do Over

Lovers should never pay For the mistakes of our pasts Damage done by others Meeting you was by chance Finding a love so beautiful Was purely a miracle  Love is a gift given with care Sometimes opening a new world The possibilities seem endless Past abuse and unspoken fears Faded slowly thanks to your love Each kiss soothed my soul The past can not be changed Do overs are not promised...Read On

Brown Eyes

Seduced by mystery.

Dark brown eyes of mystery, what hides in your soul? Do you hold joy or pain? Does a heart of love hide there? Dark brown eyes of mystery, why do you stare at me? What do you want with me? Will you steal away my soul? Dark brown eyes of mystery, why do you mesmerize me? What is your temptation? Will you hypnotize my heart? Dark brown eyes of mystery, what feelings do you hide?...Read On

Moments Captured

Dreams can begin so innocently Sometimes a little selfish in nature Magic moments so big and small A journey into time together Seeing the same vision in its beauty Where special times are shared That changes into a joy-laughter and love Where lives change and souls are touched Spirits so honest, true and free Searching all the wondrous places Hoping and believing there...Read On

No

This was painful. But if it helps someone, then it is well worth the pain.

No. I can no longer and will no longer subject myself to the disrespect of being your consummate whore, your lover, your cover, your bitch who meets you on the other side of town. No, I can no longer and will no longer be down with your abuses, your excuses, your fucking reasons why I am over here and you are over there with her in the clear. No, I can no longer and will no longer...Read On

The Perfect Moment

Your sadness sparked my interest My only goal was to make you smile Our lives were each their own chaos But our love was in destiny's hands Conversations about life's turmoils Slowly blossoming into a friendship Taking turns supporting one another Helping each other to find their smile Trust and commitment built slowly One brick at a time we began to craft A trust that could...Read On

She’s A Devil, She's An Angel

A man loves a woman.

She says she loves me so, she conquers my bravado. But she teases like a tart, from her I cannot depart. Without her I’m a shadow. She makes me see red, then rocks me in bed. She can twist and dance. I’m lost in her trance, seduced by her spread. Sometimes she’s a devil, sometimes she’s an angel, but you see, she’s all mine, and my heart is just fine. She’s stuck in...Read On

Love’s Pleading Salvation

A poem of love and passion.

The labyrinth of the heart  is full of hopes and dreams,  entrapments and schemes, and dances to a blues harmony. The heart bleeds and scars, it writes the novel of life of defeats and victories, and sings an ode to the soul. I feel a hot breeze burning, conflict of power and submission, blood sizzling through my veins, conquer and be conquered. Lost under a black moon, ...Read On

A Poem for You

He writes a poem ...

I wanted to write a poem for you.  I've never written one before.  I've seen that little book you keep,  the cuts and pastes of your life, a collection of words.  I've seen the pictures and the artful curve of your script.  I've seen you nurture it when you thought there were no eyes.  I want to be a part of your book.  I want to be a part of your life. I look into your life.  I...Read On

Words Don't Come Easy To Us

A labour, not of love

What use is distinction,  Between twilight and dusk? To ordinary people like us, They are one, They are the same state of affairs  We find ourselves in, time and again; You whisper these words  And I struggle  To hear your honest intent: I fear there will be trouble when we meet Tempt fate,  Dare the devil, We have no love for each other,  But we have something else to squander, No...Read On

The Right Words

Are words enough... To explain how your gentle touch Literally takes my breath away Or how just the sound of your voice Makes butterflies flutter inside me Are words enough... To explain how I feel myself fall in love all over again with every kiss we share To even begin to explain the extent of the longing and love that I feel for you Are words enough... To convey to you that my...Read On
