Voiceless

i dont know how to say these things that the diamonds rolling off our skin are only rain, crossing us in tiny rivers of light that we are always rising but never weightless that she steals into my dreams to light quiet fires I dont know how to speak of dry leaves lifting off the pavement on a carpet of wind or how the sun only loves us a few hours at a time and how my...Read On

As my world spins

Written on an emotional election night...whether you smiled or cried...may God bless us all.

Kneeling at his feet, Cheek resting on his knee, Quiet and inhaling his peace, While outside the banshees scream. Hatred bubbles and roils, Tempests howl and rage, Shrieks of anger and of bitterness, The inmates rattle their cage. His hand pets my silken strands, A gentle glance across my cheek, My eyes close with pleasure, My heart sighs in relief. This man is...Read On

Magic Hour Musings

Sometimes the most vulnerable and real feelings are revealed in late night magic hours

It wasn't easy to get you to this point  But it was worth it because here we are So patient was I waiting for the walls to come down I don't think you know Walls were not meant to keep us  Away from what we desire or to protect us They are there to challenge us to work  Harder for what we want To fight for what lights the soul So many nights we spent questioning Slowly discovering each...Read On

For Words Alone

Can one find love on the internet?

Can I love someone, Never seeing their face, Without their touch, Or their warm embrace? Can I love someone, Never seeing their eyes, Without their caress, Would it be wise? Can I love someone, Never seeing their smile, Without their kiss, Only their writing style? Can I love someone, Never...Read On

moon shine

the night sky sings a sad song.

I hide... every day. from hurt, from love, from myself. when my body longs most to feel your breath, to share your space, to be owned by you, I remind myself  why love cannot be, why joy is perilous,  why I will never be enough. the full moon breaks  into a million faceted pieces  and falls from my sky. .......Read On

A Million Kisses

Kisses are a way to communicate A unique language all their own Kisses are also a crafted skill One you can practice and hone Each kiss we give away to another Serves its purpose when placed You can never get that kiss back Once given, it can’t be erased A soft kiss on the forehead Easing an ailment or a disease A lover’s kiss placed on your neck Making you weak in the knees Maybe...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

A Dent in Our Bed

For all those who's loved one is away from home...

It’s two in the morning A nightmare in my head. I reach across for comfort And find a dent in our bed. Where are you tonight? Why can’t I hold your hand? Are you in another town, city, Another state, or a foreign land? How long must I wait Until you are near? Another day, a week, Will it be a month, or a year? How long will you stay? How much time to I get to enjoy you?...Read On

Who Am I

You lied to me, spinning tales so grand You treated me badly, leaving scars on my hands You promised me things you hadn't the right to You let me love, hate you and told me we're through You made plans time and again and never showed You tried to appease me but your excuses never slowed You made me laugh and once upon a time loved me You were smart and funny, and made me feel so free ...Read On

Dream

I wish... I wish...

In the still of the night, As I lay down on my bed. Feels the blows of the wind, Hears the tick of the clock. Sleep took over, As I close my eyes. Feels your touch in my skin, Hears your voice in my ear. Is this Neverland? My mind wonders As I dream. Where I can be with you, Where all things possible. Rune03.25.15...Read On

Tomorrow

If only ...

Can't have you right now Occupied at the moment Trying to survive this life Dream keeps me awake Snakes whispering love Monsters dress as lamb Devil pretending angels Want to end this dreams Let me dream about you Freedom to spend time Sample your sweet lips Luxury of intimate touch Opportunity in your arms Let me do the dreaming Escaping my nightmares Make the day fun at least Put my...Read On

Those Three Words

Let me say something, other than those three words, to describe how I feel about you.

Must I say those words? Those three words, That are often used And often, are not used correctly. Can't I just say When I think of you, Butterflies swarm in my tummy, Warmth fills my body, from head to toe. When I see you, It is like I am floating, I am dancing, I am singing. When you hold me, You become the center of my world, My gravity, You keep me bounded...Read On

Kiss

Lips touching lips... that is a kiss...

Fluttering of wings Rat racing inside Short of breath Weakening knees That's how I feel every time   Conflicting minds Complicated feelings Constricting pains Presence missing That's how I feel right now   Wishing you are here For me With me Together That's what on my mind today   More than just a kiss But a soulful touch of Someone special.    ...Read On

Away For Days

I know the reasons you had to leave me Maybe it's the best for now, I can be free I look over at your side of the bed At first I cried, then I let myself be led I'd known him for years, he's a good friend I wish I could tell I thought about it in the end Sad and lonely, missing us, I tried I was weak, gave in to a need, I lied When you'd call, ask was I sleeping well I'd tell you no I...Read On

Slow Dancing at the End of the World

now, just when the city is beginning to burn the shape of what we become, leaning together, shadow and haunted angel, neck tasting faintly of salt slow dancing to one more hopeless song about the end of the world holding on like the dream of another heartbeat I should have been something more than the sum total of the ruination of this unmerciful tide of...Read On

Painful Words

The painful words leave lasting scars

We have all heard so many painful words Cruel words said in anger the replay won't stop How come they know exactly what to say Their words make our self worth rapidly drop The painful words stay ingrained forever When it is quiet they play as if on repeat Making our hearts break all over again Eventually we think we deserved the defeat After so many painful words we build walls Trying...Read On

Losing A Friend

His stairway to heaven ... I lovingly remember you

When I woke this morning, you were gone The news came, and my heart broke My friend, my love for a friend Gone in an instant. How could this happen, We were just together Dancing and laughing Loving and hugging You were so close to me A caring friend, love that was safe I smiled at you, and touched your face We stood together in a long embrace Shared our lives, our future hopes...Read On

Broken

It's always going to be you.

I see a pretty doll with a broken smile.  Sad 'cause she's been missing you for too long a while.  I respect your decision, and your reasons why.  Doesn't make this any easier to accept, though I try.  How can you just push me away? You too, must be hurting, a little more each day.  I know why you did it, although I think you're wrong.  I'm feeling so angry, how can you be so strong? ...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

Sweet Summer Rose

Ode to a rose

Sweet summer rose, surviving autumn frost,  How come you hang on, when all the rest have lost? Why does your bloom linger so? You know it’s time to go. To spread your petals,  Releasing your soul, lying where they settle. I will tend and prune you in the morn,  Lest I catch my finger ‘pon a thorn. I know that drop of blood will feed you,  Bring out that deep, intense scarlet hue....Read On

Drifter

Not lost

Somewhere, I lost it But I’m glad it’s gone No need to fret Over what I’ve done wrong There is a freedom When you don’t need to try A certain freedom To just say good-bye No effort needed Nothing missed Light of heart Contented to drift Fine if you’re here But not for too long Fine if you’re gone I’ll just move on How did I get here? Not really sure Will this go on? Will my...Read On

On Fire

Whenever I think of you...

You whispered my name My heart beat faster The hairs on my skin rose My nipples hardened I turned Knowing you'd be there Standing so near You were intensely looking at me My heart skipped a beat My skin heated up I quivered I raised my head  Looked into your eyes You moved closer You stopped an inch away From my lips and whispered My Heart My gorgeous heart Kiss me My...Read On

Time

There is never enough time.

Please. I need you. I start to cry, It's never the right time. Time is the eater of my wants, My desires. My need for you, My desire for your touch. I want you in my arms, Your skin under my hands, Your taste on my tongue. Yet time does not allow that. It prevents me from having you, Playing with you, Feeling you slide gently inside me. Making me moan, My head...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

Your Rosebud Lips Wore Pink

A true love.

I spotted you across the room; your wide smile drew me in. I watched you for a short while, your face, your eyes, your grin. Your eyes sparkled in the dim light, your rosebud lips wore pink. Your hair danced when you looked my way I caught your eye, I winked. A wink is such a simple thing, yet made you notice me. If you would care to be my friend, I would grasp the...Read On

Chameleon

You're a chameleon changing your spots Saying the words you think should be heard Pleasing every one and no one, your heart rots That's fine, of course, whatever, how absurd Taking on hues and tones of those around you Blending, never calling attention your way Losing yourself or never knowing who Nothing changed until that autumn colored day Who are you? Whomever you want, I can be her and...Read On

Siren Sappho

A beacon to lost lesbians

Homeward I sail to the shores of Lesbos Sappho is my Siren Once outward bound I faced away And saw not home and comfort My course was plotted by others’ hands To learn the worldly way And seek what others sought before Our nature to betray We did not know the sails we set Were sewn by hands so foreign That we would lose the memory Of lands where we were born And now...Read On

Between You and Me

That's between you and me, I whispered, smiling; But others can guess That I find you beguiling. Your kindness and caring, So boundlessly expressed, Aren't likely to cause Any feelings repressed. I look here often To see if there might Be a note from you To make my day bright. But when there's not, I still know, you see, That you're out there Thinking of me. When that note is here, A...Read On

When you love You give your heart and soul Unconditionally, it's something you can't control You spend your waking moments thinking of him Knowing that soon In his arms you will swing At night when I lay in my bed It's images of our love tryst I remember and blush a faint red In my dreams you wander at night I toss and I turn reaching for you, to hold on tight When I...Read On

Naiad

Glitter water flowing Sun flecks on her skin Dancing with the river As graceful as a nymph Free from care and troubles Smooth unfurrowed brow The visage of an angel Whose serenity is found On land her heart weighed heavy Life’s burdens bearing down Afloat, her tresses streaming Dressed in her aqueous gown Moving with the current Cleansed of tragic stain Watching her is joyful...Read On
