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

Echoes

echoes of you stir in my mind shadows and thoughts of you swirl around in my memory like mental leaves floating and falling softly, gently gliding surreptitiously and in my mind images of your face appear randomly although it is hard to remember what it looks like anymore the soft timbre of your voice even though I have not heard it in so long echoes of...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

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

In My Dreams

He comes to me

In my dreams You come to me every night You walk up to me With your arms wrapped tight Your soft lips Kiss me ohh just right You whisper my name In my ear sweet knight Of love you speak Of futures so bright I cherish each dream And days in your sight The soft caresses of my body tonight Your touches that Make me quiver inside Such passion we share Our bodies ignite Like...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

The Mask

I must wear a mask To hide the pain From loving and missing you. I tell everyone I am fine. But inside, I'm dying. I do not smile. For my smile is a facade. It is me grimacing. You are my secret I cannot tell. I may be a fool, but I Still love and miss you. The mask I wear, I wear it so well. I long for the day I'm free from the pain Of loving you. The day...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

Two Snowflakes

As we sit on this cold hard ground Another Valentine’s Day upon us A snowflake falls before me They say no two are alike We were always like two snowflakes So different in every way But bound together by an unbreakable force That nobody understood We shared everything Our ups Our downs Our dreams Our wishes We were always there for each other To laugh with To cry with To...Read On

For Al

Wherever you are.

Thank you my friend for saving me When I was drowning. Your kindness touched me Like morning dew kissing a rose. Your generosity flowed, Like sand in an hourglass Shaken by the universe. You were there when  I needed you. I can still see your face, Though I never held your photo. You were drawn by my beauty, Basking in ethereal light. I miss seeing your blue jacket, The...Read On

Ghost

Still haunting me

I thought I had laid you to rest my love, Buried you six feet under me. It feels like you hadn't left at all, that Not even a second has passed between us. I can feel you go through me, Every cell and through my whole body Of consciousness, every pore. You are my ghost of what we had and I thought you left permanently. You're my ghost and shadow, Every thought of mine...Read On

Mirrors

For Elliot

I looked into the mirror Of my soul, Saw that it was cracked and broken. I hobbled along only half alive, Tiredly As I sat upon my cemented bed of hope. It had been a long time since I felt it. Love had forsaken and forgotten me, Taken too many pieces of my heart, Leaving me with only pain and regret. Looking down at my hands, Something had fluttered Into my weary vision. ...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

You are gone

Whispered kisses on my cheek. A grin plays on my lips; so coy and so meek. My muscles are sore. In the heat of passion I begged for more. I stretch my body giving you a show. You aren’t really there, but how could I know? The touching, the kissing, making love until dawn. Now come this morning you are gone. My back has gone cold. Longing to be someone you’d hold. My...Read On

Snapshots

Recalling moments in time with one's true love.

Years ago you caught my eye, A soul so gentle and kind, I oft recall your first words to me, A snapshot in my mind. Playing and laughing, time stood still, Our spirits allowed destiny to consume, We felt that bond that tied us both, A snapshot of two lives in bloom. Our first kiss, indeed electric and full of need, I recall my hands roaming through locks of hair, That first day, my...Read On

Seasons

The snow has stopped falling, though my heart remains cold. The day you went away, the tears I cried Flowed like tiny rivers down my cheeks, Like icicles, impaling my heart. I reminded you of someone you once knew, that hurt you deeply, forever changing your future. The seasons change, one blending to the next. I found beauty in your soul, that I didn't want to let go. I loved you, offered...Read On

Your Hands Your Eyes

I watch your hands as we talk I watch your eyes as you look at me I watch your hands as they reach for mine I watch your eyes as they look through me I feel your hands as they touch my face I feel your eyes as they follow me I feel your hands move along my body I feel your eyes as they undress me I feel your hands remove my clothes I feel your eyes as my body unfolds I...Read On

Forsaken

There's a piece of you  Here's a piece of me  Where do I fit in Why can you not see    Parting words each day  To stay safe, stay strong  Mantra in my head  I've tried for so long  A strength for you to see  Keeping away my fears They're fighting inside me  I hide behind my tears  Finding a peace within  In your arms I am whole  You are my twin flame  I feel you in my soul  Waiting, arms...Read On

Does He Know It's Over

One of the hardest parts of life is deciding whether to walk away or try harder.

When we sit across from one another, in quiet contemplation, do you wonder what I'm thinking? When you see me admire a happy couple with a glimpse of sadness and envy in my eyes, do you ponder why? When we have sex, as I'm laying there barely participating, does it cross your mind I could be thinking of another? When you choose porn over me because you desire more than I can give,...Read On

This Path

This is the road I am destined to wander until the day I die.

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. The golden glory of the sun is just a distant memory now. I traverse this waking nightmare Under the celestial gaze of a billion starry watchers, They who glitter in my tears with icy blue-white sanction As I lift my face for hostile acknowledgement of my failings. The path I’ve trodden through...Read On

I Cried Again Today

I cried again today I do most days as I awake Questioning why I stay Tethered unhappily to life Tears and panic set in I struggle and thrash about Trying to quiet my mind I listen to the calming sound Your voice whispering the words Calming the inexplicable anxiety I feel I hear those names and feel safe Tears and shaking soon abate I remember why I wake Hearing the names of those...Read On

Shell Game

Now you see it . . .

She stands before you So sincere Her heart is on display Cradled in her outstretched hands Held so tenderly You melt to see her standing there You want so to believe And to accept her offering Your hands begin to reach And as you do she pulls away Saying, "you must play the game" And takes you to a table Where sit three shells, all the same She sets one shell atop her heart And...Read On

Reflections

Reflective Thoughts...

Natural light shines in, lending a soft warm hue The walls, a climate of cool, pale blue A reflection, tarnished and flawed Naked and exposed, there is no fraud Bruises are many, scars are more Healed, faded, mending but ever sore A friend of years, a lapse in thought All was lost, for a moment of naught A misguided trust, a lover untrue So many said, but who...Read On

Thoughts I should not have

I shouldn't, but I do

You give me thoughts I should not have, it happens when I see your av, or when I read the things you write. I know I should not, but to fight, it is impossible for me. I guess I should no longer be here. No, I have to leave this place, where I cannot avoid your face. But I just can't, I need to stay, don't have the strength to go away. I need to see that you exist and it would hurt...Read On

The beauty of the Fall

The perfect autumnal walk

Come with me on my autumn stroll, And see the beauty that I behold; Summer’s love has taken its toll As Autumn’s tale does now unfold. Every colour, each coppery hue, Every tint fills me with wonder; They make me dream, think of you Yet the little leaves are cast asunder. From little acorn to rich ochre berry, I pluck a morsel for you to cherish; Yet while the colours are...Read On
