Icarus

Bright speck, cast against the backdrop of blue. Ascending, unconcerned of the drop that would drench all. Escaped from the cankers of life, Suspended, An updraft of support. Wax pain, and tears  Bereft of wings. Connection in wane, where we once as one stood. Bleating against the span, Your back faced to me. Indifferent now,  Shadows cast where all was sunshine. Fists beat...Read On

My Demons

Everyone battles their own demons.

They are indistinguishable Too closely defined One Fear, one pain Clawing their way Ripping my soul Unrelenting Unforgiving His love is a light in itself A flickering light in my hell He saves me each day Day after day after day Healing my soul Unshakable Never wavering Each night the battle begins The pain and fear so loud Demanding my attention Tearing my soul apart My demons to battle...Read On

A Beautiful World

My world was covered in grey Beautiful color drained from it Worry and pain filled my mind Every rule says it was poor timing But the minute he walked into my life The colors came flooding back to me His words, whether typed or spoken Eased my worries, soothing me Calming the persistent waves of pain Love had always been romanticized Fine wine, beautiful art and fancy words His love...Read On

The Darkness

Tonight I feel the oppressive weight of darkness A blanket of silence and darkness covers me The silence punctuated only by pain's staccato Pain is now my companion, my bed mate Tonight the pain pales in comparison to my longing I miss all of you, the sound of you, your touch The tears trail effortlessly, silently, as my heart cries Loneliness can be felt physically, much like pain...Read On

My Gift

A simple kiss

My beach is beckoning. The tide is swimming out. Seagulls soar above, calling out our names. *** With sand beneath my feet, gazing out to sea, seaspray carries a kiss from your lips to me. *** Tides ebb and flow. Each day more will follow from my lips to yours, wrapped in a memory or two. *** On our sandy paradise, hearts full of longing. Salty breeze on our faces, ...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

Catapult

We don't really fall in love

They say that people fall in love I beg to disagree It’s really more a catapult: You’re launched, then flying free Swirling, twirling through the air The world around you spins Like nothing you have ever seen At heights you’ve never been You catch your breath Such beauty! Surrounds you and within Your happiness just radiates You feel your life begin Whether you are young or old The...Read On

Day Dreaming

I'm sitting looking at my lap top, But yet not really seeing it. My mind is racing through The many conversations we've had. Some long and Some just a hello, how are you. I've only known you a short time. Yet it seems like I've known you forever. We met by pure accident, Or yet was it meant to be. We became friends instantly And began to chat every day. Some conversations were serious,...Read On

A Brief List of Things I'm Never Going to Say

We were eating on the same side of the table again because she likes it like that but I like the other side because I get to see more of her face but I never say this and sit where she asks me to because of how she gets this smile that makes the air feel like something else but still made of air like air you don’t mind being inside of And I never talk about ...Read On

Freedom

Voices accusing. Fingers pointing An unforgiving world of strangers The guilt and blame are crushing This world is my prison with no escape There is nowhere safe left to hide For you For me Loneliness is like a creature  From which I can't run Where I go it waits Where I hide it lurks In you is my hope found You light my darkness Define my purpose  Because of you ...Read On

Still There

You’re in my every thought You’re in my every dream You live in my heart Why won't you leave? You’re like a nasty cobweb Clinging to every part of me You’re not welcome here any more Yet you’re in every poem or story I read Why won't you go away? You are always haunting me We were so in love Yes, you said you loved me And I loved you We planned a life together You said you would never leave...Read On

Blue Hearts

In better times I bought two hearts Both were lapis blue One I set in my glass case The other, gave to you I thought it sweet We each had hearts And they were both the same Though yours went in a little drawer With papers and loose change The drawer was in a wooden stand In your entryway And where you placed your front door key The end of every day When you died I took the heart To have...Read On

Invocation

Grazed by your eyes As though you have touched me Watching your lips While words emerge softly Speaking to me Telling me more I just want to stay here Letting them pour Silken, like scarves That trail through my mind They calm, yet excite As I try to slow time And prolong this night To capture its passing As cel by cel I live it while watching So keenly conscious Of each matchless...Read On

Giving In

A message from a new pet to her Master

I saw you from afar And watched as you played Just thinking about it made me wet So afraid of being hurt again I’m hiding far away Protecting my heart from old regrets You look like fire I might get burned But your body calls out to me anyway Words like a cool breeze Sexy things you say to tease Pulled me right in and made my heart race Trying hard to keep my distance From...Read On

Arrange this Night

Arrange this night around us Its shadows and its lights Turn it into something Of which poets often write Add stars and gentle breezes That shimmer and that play And just a curve of crescent moon A bright slice left from day Stay with me while the phases Of varied darkness pass As we cherish our connection While dew forms on the grass....Read On

The Shortest Forever

I'll love you forever We'll always be together. Your words stole my heart A promise never to part. I'll always be true My fears shared with you. Shared secrets, my soul to bare Now I know, you'll always be there. Knowing each other intimately Two people as one, for all to see. By collar and chain, bound for life You took a vow, made me your wife. Baby, there's no need to worry Who...Read On

Bubonic

Out, out, damn flea!

It spreads faster than the plague In medieval times It’s the flea aboard the rat Bearing your demise You see those around you fall Perhaps you will be next? How can you protect yourself From this horridness? Shall you avoid all contact? Stay away from friends? Never trust an embrace? Never hold a hand? Live a life so sanitized Insanity prevails? But this is not the answer To craft a...Read On

This Violence of Affection

How I long for you, my sweetest thing. Only your balm of love, might ease the sting. My trembling heart, such a sweet affliction. It's the price I pay  for my new addiction. No time that passes, no distance travelled, can make me whole. I've come unravelled. What have you done  to touch me so? Might I beg a kiss  before you go? Now, alone to think, questions abound. Have I lost...Read On

Laurel

God of light Whose ego shone Boasting of his strength God of love Who with his bow Plots now his revenge Which power greater Gold or lead? Desire or to despise? Arrows do their targets find Pierced hearts must now comply One chases while the other shuns Entreat; retreat; pursue Matched equally Her fragile lead Holds between the two Yet passion’s heat cannot be quelled Light’s...Read On

Fuck off, please.

Ever have one of those days where nothing goes right?

How I loathe you. I was fine, I had accepted my fate. I accepted a life of merely existing, decades ago. It was unnerving to plunge that dagger in my heart. I thought I had murdered it. Sure, it beat. But, it didn’t feel. It couldn’t hurt me anymore. I had won. I was the victor. How sweet to claim the prize of ‘no more pain’. And then, You. You, with that fatal smile. You,...Read On

Shall We?

Draw me near and cheer me Grace me with your smile Let a veil encircle ‘round Concealing us, a while Let me lean against you Strong and warm and there Radiating sureness Shielded from life’s glare And as your chest enfolds me Comfort’s warmth does rise Catching at the core of me Lighting in your eyes A shifting of emotion Glints through this tender calm Convergently occurring As...Read On

Paradox

Beyond the time We should have ended Braced through trials We should have lost Betrayed by those We’ve since unfriended Benefits Versus the costs Reaching out Where understanding Doesn’t seem What we will find Surprised that we Have stayed together Unlike in life Unlike in mind Long suffering We perfect our demons Train them to bay Outside for show Yet past the...Read On

Upgrade

I moved you out Like cathode ray Huge hulking presence Surrounded in dust As you departed You scratched the shelf I felt the dig I pried you off Unwanted Ungainly Not even a charity Would take you away I had to pay I dusted And I waxed the scratch Replaced you With a slimmer model But sun had bleached Around your base And there Your image remains....Read On

The Search for Diamonds

A dedication to the love of my Life Deana. May she continue to shine brightly though the night.

The Search is all too familiar. The path ever so tedious. Treacherous obstacles block the way. Strength is lacking but desire is strong. A heartbeat skips, waves of emotions surge. Rose colored hands bear fruit. The history of the struggle embedded. The goal is forever wanted. Faltered misstep are unacceptable. Dangerous the path. Greatest the reward. Perfection is clarity. ...Read On

Grace

You move with a grace I could never possess, the hem of a skirt caught in a faint breeze, bare legs revealed as the wind rose in its almost silent seasonal symphony. And as where my heart is fitful, drawing restless thunder, yours is the calm before every storm I long to know. You can summon hardness from the soft, find smoothness along stubble with delicate wandering fingertips...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

In My Dreams

"All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them!" Walt Disney

You come to me in my dreams Each and every night  Wrapping your arms around me Holding me so tight  You whisper softly in my ear  Sleep now darling, sleep Take from me my strength  No more need to weep We've survived so many things  If they really cared they'd see How the hurt they've caused  Left their love a lost memory  Come to me in my dreams  I'll take your pain away Let me love...Read On

United we stand

For you…

    Although all our real lives are separate and so very different We are drawn together online Sharing stories about our day Our hopes and dreams for the future and insecurities from the past through listening and encouragement we make each other better people But lately, it is like a fog has appeared And you’ve grown distant quiet and guarded And it is obvious you are struggling...Read On

Sand Castle

Dreams are made of sand...

Sitting alone by the shore, Doodling names with mine. Dreaming of being with me, Wash away by the waves.   Sitting alone by the shore And playing with the sand. Building on my own, A sand castle in the sand.   Sitting alone by the shore, He stops by to help me build My sand castle in the sand, A wave broke and washes it away.   Sitting alone with him by the shore, He chooses...Read On

Brain Betrayal

I will never understand or heed the voices bouncing around and ricochetting trying to lead Damaged connections and tissue warp any sense I ever have of me Self-worth not the only issue Fighting with myself at night Wanting all and nothing I can never find the light Value others see in me Perhaps they are blind And cannot clearly see I've just been cast In a life I never chose Each time...Read On
