Scattered Pages

A sad start doesn't mean you can't have a happy ending

Majella rests by the cherry tree, a diary by her side. Her lover is gone, now she'll never be his bride.  A broken heart can linger, hurt far more than broken flesh. Some are never mended, Never able to start afresh. Dark stormy clouds surround, The pages, the wind betook. Rain drenched the love in a broken old book. * * * Stormy winds scatter  the miserable leaves  of a tired old book;...Read On

After the spark

I can’t be what you need. I watch your lips as they form a smile, tell a story. But I will never kiss them For I am not for you. My heart is not only mine. I gave it away long ago. Wrapped it in colourful paper and laid it at the feet of my lover. Freely. Willingly. It has been tended well, nurtured and allowed to grow. How could I do any less with his? People talk about the...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

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

Patient Fingers

A brief love affair that happened only in my mind...

The last time you wore that blouse, there were eight buttons done up. I remember, because my fingers trembled with nervous energy. They were fixated on them. No, mesmerized by them. Begging to undo them, button by delicious button. Eight buttons. Eight. I see you're wearing it again today. Oh, miracle of miracles! Today there are seven.  Only seven. The eighth button...Read On

Look how the stars shine

Always with YOU!

Sitting here every night looking up above at the sky Thinking of the man I love so very much. Feeling his presence in my heart always Wishing and praying he could be here. Holding my hand Gazing up above with me Looking at these beautiful stars so bright God created for us to enjoy tonight and every night.  Standing here looking above at these beautiful sparkling lights Shining down on...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

This Never-Ending Cycle

One look was all it took Before I felt myself fall again. It happens all the time, This endless cycle. I fall, I break, I heal. You come, you smile, Whisper to me your sweet poisonous words. I get sucked in, and the cycle starts again. How you have this hold over me, I'll never understand. This addiction, The need to be near you, The need to hear your voice, To feel...Read On

I cried

I cried for you today. For the last goodbye. For the loss of what we had or could have had. For the feeling that I once felt but won't ever feel again. I cried for knowing that what you once felt for me you'll feel for another. For the things you told me you'll tell another. For the what you gave to me you'll give another. For the intimate things you know of me you'll know...Read On

Shadows on The Wall

Shadows on the wall, lovers embrace Towards each other, face to face. His hands on her hips, hers in his hair, Moving in a rhythm that only lovers share. His teeth bite her nipple, making her moan, Her nails rake his shoulders, making him groan. His hand in her hair, causing a sigh As the other traces up her thigh. Her hand reaches down and encircles his tip And...Read On

Sunset

That one perfect moment.

Breeze on the deck, Rocking in a steady rhythm, Waves crashing on the side. To and fro, Up and down, Holding on the rigging, Fingers interlocking. The sun dipping low, My head on your shoulder, Sighing contently. As the rain sprinkles my cheek, Pleasured smiles dancing on lips, As the sun dips below the horizon. One moment to hold, To remember...Read On

Whatever She's Got

Whatever she's got, you want

She's complicated She changes her mind constantly But She never changes How she loves She loves unconditionally When she falls It's hard and fast She falls head over heels When she hurts It's a deep hurt When she gives her heart away It's forever, but be gentle with it When she kisses you You will know everything she feels When she touches you, it Will have you seeing stars ...Read On

You Could Be That Girl

You could be that girl

  You could be that girl that Steals his heart You could be that girl that Makes him wanna settle down Or You could be that girl that Is his best friend You could be that girl that Is his little partner-in-crime You could be that girl with that rebel potential  A little bit of a bad girl or an angel  Or You could be that girl that He turns to when his life gets crazy And he...Read On

Colors

I feel in color

Color my feelings and shade them in. Paint my heart and lips red. Brush my mind with bright colored strokes. Prisms of light touch my soul when you color my skin. Crimson prints your fingers leave on my heart. Sunbursts bloom in my eyes when thoughts pass through. New colors discovered over time. Rainbow shades never seen before or again. Invented, imagined paint shades color my life....Read On

Going Through Old Photos

‘Smile’ he said, and I smiled Oh, baby, I was so wild And free and nothing Nothing Could hurt me Or so I believed So I smiled for him Making jokes about how I’d break The camera lens Not knowing that I’d break Not bend Not a matter of if but when And baby, I remember that day Like it was yesterday It was...Read On

My Everything

My Heart Is Yours

I fell in love with a boy who turned out to be my whole world. I allowed myself to give him everything. He had my heart, He had my soul, He had my mind, He had my everything. I wanted him to have it all. Though I was warned be careful who you give your heart too. While growing up, I was raised right. Don’t be dumb, don’t hand your heart to just anyone. My mama spoke to...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. He came into...Read On

Good Ol Fashioned Love

simpler times

Tell me about the good old days When promises were made and kept, And passion grew with every day, with every little touch.   When forever meant forever.  When love was all you needed and wanted. Making love was slow and never rushed because of work coming first.  When couples prayed together.  When faith and trust in someone grew every day. When love was forever.  I just want a...Read On

Your Love Kissed My Soul

A broken heart can be mended.

Your love beheld my heart so battered and bruised.  Your love cried for my spirit so broken and abused. Your love kissed my soul,  its warmth pierced my heart, melting the deep sadness, allowing sorrow to depart. Your love enshrouds me; Protects me from the past.  Brings forth my trust again and the faith it will last. Your love is potent,  so rich and so pure.  Its brightness blinds...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

Adrenaline

Adrenaline rush, Shaking my core. Pounding heartbeat, My spirits begin to soar. Your gaze shy and deflected, Still sets my breathing raw. Beautiful and radiant, Your glow leaves me in awe. Closer we near, our bodies shaking, Through fear, our minds quaking. We approach as strangers, Unwilling and timid. But once our eyes meet, Our souls connect, The bond between...Read On

Forest

Have I seen this tree before? Or have I circled back? I wish I’d thought to mark the spot To keep myself on track   I saw a bird That looked like moss Grayish mossy green Hopping on a lichen stone The pattern stayed with me   What can I leave And save myself Thus still remain intact? To make me shine in memory To polish up my lacks   What way to guarantee that I Can be...Read On

My Love Did Sometimes Wander

Just another poem of love, infidelity, commitment, remorse and whatever...

My love did sometimes wander, And my thoughts did often roam, From the one who held them dear, And gave my love a home. But I was young and restless, And my heart would long to play, Never thinking of the one I’d hurt, When my love would go astray. They say if you play with fire, You sometimes will get burned, And though the lessons were often hard, The lessons did get learned. For I know...Read On

To My Love

For she who moves me

As I lie in bed, you come to me Your body next to mine. Enfolding me in your arms, Your heart a furnace against mine. How did it start? A gentle poke, a kind word. Time reveals you, You become a presence. Like a negative you develop in my mind. Words waft between us, Innocent ethereal words. The image develops now revealed, Unfolding, as flower spreading its petals in the sun. ...Read On

Here

This is where I put things  Everything that has no other place  Here's a tiny spate of gentle rain  Coming at the end of a hard spring  And here's that moment  I sat beside her  Studying the lines of her face  While the world was burning down  To nothing we could use anymore Here are all the silences  Between the words we gave away  And here are the remnants of my heart  ...Read On

Voice

She said... Words grouped together, amounting to written promises scribed in black and white... White spaces in between thoughts That is what we’ve exchanged for a while now. Now, we swap words on screens with no expression, sans inflection, but with a mutual understanding, a union grounded in respect, in love, with an undeniable chemistry. And then you offer your voice. You...Read On
