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

May I?

May I sit here by your side And just watch you be?  May I linger for a while Enjoying you with me? May I see you make that smile That you used to do?  The one where you look silly That we named after you? May I breathe the air you breathe As we share vintage wine? And may you tell the joke you loved That you told all the time? May you let the game blare on With decibels galore That...Read On

Coincidences

...I don't believe in them

I don't believe in coincidences I do believe in love I think we've been put together By the man from up above Whenever I see you near My heart begins to flutter I think you are the one my dear We go together like jelly and peanut butter I know about the others I've seen them hang around like flies Simply put, I see their true colors I've heard all their lies So when they...Read On

She Did

Without trust and honesty there can be no real emotional attachment.

Grey and dreary was today She sat in sad, utter dismay Her world had gone all astray Two lovers had come her way One dark of night, one light of day Slow and smooth was his pursue He spoke of honesty, just not true Soon he would cast his darkest hue Webs he wove only he could undo Her heart he broke, through and through She slid her hand in his to dance Hoping to...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

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

Lightning Bugs

Love should be more than a flash in the dark

Like Fire Flies dancing in the night, Desperate lovers flit about,  finding each other in random glory.    Two become one, merging their luminescence In a brilliant flash of radiant bliss,  Bravo, to them I say,  filled with joy that they've found their mate.   But all too soon their lightning dims  and they part again,  Dancing in the dark until a new pair  meet and glow anew.   ...Read On

Undo

some things you just can't undo

. Water runs over stones Making its way down the trace. Flowing where it is meant to go. It cannot undo  The molecules of itself  Left behind on stones and soil. You are like that warm wetness  Flowing over the stones  That were once my heart Leaving words and hopes  Meant for another more perfect way... That path where  Your everything rests  All the time.

I Don't Love You

Maybe one day I'll be able to say that I don't love you.

Maybe if I say these words, That will make them true. Maybe if I concentrate, I'll get over you. Maybe when I see you with him That will be enough. Maybe when I know you're happy Things won't be so rough. Maybe I just have to wait For these wounds to heal. Maybe then I can forget The way you make me feel. Maybe you'll come back to me, Though I start to doubt it. Maybe...Read On

Questions of Love

Is love but a fleeting feeling? Or something that is true? Is it just a passing emotion? Why is it drawing me to you? Is love about finding beauty? Why is there so much pain? Can it truly mend a broken heart? Can it make me whole again? Is it love that bonds us together? Or desire that controls our minds? Can my love be a soulful promise? Or did I just simply waste your time? Is...Read On

Mercy

there are no words

The surprise is I was not surprised when you stepped into my path. Visions of hot, striving bodies flashed through my mind. Your mouth owning open and willing lips. Your fingers twined with mine. Your erect length pinning me to crisp white sheets. My entire being enthralled, captured, at the mercy of your body Every moment perfect. Every breath shared between us. ...Read On

Whatever the hurt and pain That we carry deep inside Let it be healed and resolved May all of our tears be dried For hearts that are shattered May they feel real love again Get past the tears and heartbreak Let our faith in love begin May we believe in ourselves Identify and conquer our fears Lift ourselves back up again Smile and wipe away the tears Show others the strength of...Read On

Completion

know me

... Dawn bleeds into the stars. My arms enfold you, heart wooing you  to taste my desolate beauty. These kisses cover your heart in silent words. Oh beloved, this is a deep rich thing, this awakening, this forever rising. I breathe my longing into your flesh faster and  deeper... pressing you  until that moment  you become utterly uncontrollable. Mists rise...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

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

You Should Be Here

Semper Fi

It's been thirteen years since you left this world. Some days the pain is so intense like that first day without you. I remember all the dreams we had for our future.  I remember your gentle touch and how intense our lovemaking was the night before your deployment.  I remember the last time I heard you say, "I love you"  I remember your mama's tears when we got the news  I remember...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

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

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
