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

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

Retrouvailles

The joy of reuniting with someone after a long separation...

Your thoughts arouse sweet temptations, sending A wave of quiet rapture rippling through my heart, My body yearns for your delicate caresses, The last dance we had lingers on my mind. You make me quiver, I go weak at the knees, The sparkle in your eyes enthrals me, The midnight calls to murmur sweet nothings Saying, 'I love you' in your mellifluous voice. I remember the dulcet tones...Read On

Piddling With A Hainted Heart

Piddle: (Intransitive verb) to waste, to throw away, to abandon. [A Euphemism]

Just because she doesn't cry, Doesn't mean a thing. What she's piddling with Is a hainted heart. Sometimes tears Can't cause a river Deep enough for a woman To dip her haint of a heart in --Not when she has lived too long In such a short time. What is the purpose of a tear If not to soothe? For her there is no soothing. A woman can grow dry Inside Like burnt leaves, Discarded among dead...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

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

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

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

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

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

A Lion and His Queen

For my Daddy/Dom

Though hurt over and over He stood proud Fierce, Strong He stood His ground. Many kept at bay, His growl and Loud roar sent many away, scared. Women cast aside, all his prey, all unworthy of his praise. A lone lion, cautious and guarded, but all this protection was futile and in vain. Soft, regal and strong, she bared her heart, and in doing so, un-shielded him. For the first time He...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

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

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

We Are Not Poetry: A Sorrow Song

Life is not poetry.

You my love are so well read. And, you read me like no other. I was print Now I am the curls and curves of script Written across the sky. The words you speak reach out to me, As the movement of your lips hypnotize. Your heart’s sound next to mine Creates a loss of memory. I can feel nothing but The letters your tongue forms Against the delicate surface that is my skin. You...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

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

You’re My Delilah

This poem is a song, written to the woman I love.

Oh, my soul, my heart’s troll. You’re so nasty,  You’re so dread, You’ve got me  Drowning in devil’s sin. You’re a strumpet in my bed,  You’re an itch that won’t scratch. You’re my Delilah, You’re Eve with an apple. Oh, my soul – Wrapped between your thighs, Lost in your honey drip. *** Eyes so flirty, Making me dirty. You’re magical, You’re delicious, ...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

Song of the Succubus

Some myths say that a Succubus was once an angel whose heart was broken.

He wants to save me  With his sweetness  Envelope me  In the warmth of his love  He sees a bird, rare  A broken wing  A hidden spirit  Lost  Caught in the fear  Of possible flight With his prayers  And the touch of his hands  An infusion of his spirit  The curve of his smile  The music in his voice  The feel of his heart  Beating next to mine  As he leads me in this dance  ...Read On

Awakenings

For my inamorato for reigniting the flame within

It is hard to remember my life before you  Back to those days that were tough to get though  Claiming nothing was missing was clearly untrue I now see I was blinded by a distressed point of view When we collided I was shocked to realize  Feelings I missed now took me by surprise Promised love unable to get past all the lies  Hope now appeared mysteriously before my teared eyes  ...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

Simply Red Confessions

Almost a year ago we met, good friends we became, conversations we exchanged, admiring you in the distance. Pleasantries between us became our norm Complimenting each other but never more than that. In a place of words, statuses and appearances are "Taken" just like you, so I remained silent, until now. A chat window appeared, our cordialities were exchanged, Until the words I longed...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

Snuggled deep under my warm covers I can feel the weight of my eyelids. Sleep so near, yet just out of reach. Sshhh, listen closely do you hear it? Hear the sound of my heart beating. A sound so simple yet it is such a gift. Each beat is the beautiful sound of life So I ask just as I drift for one more day. Sshhh listen closely to hear its beating I could get helplessly lost in its...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
