Courage

Face your demons.

The ocean's tides beckoned me closer  while the shiny shell lured you away. The revelation of  your folly cultivated my  sadness. Did you think she shone brighter than me? How easily you  denied me and snatched away what  you had  promised me. You alone  own the failure of what was us. You won  the morbid prize. I suppressed inner carnage; An internal struggle, a fight for...Read On

I Miss You

for Robert. (Lynar)

Do you feel me missing you Across the miles? All the while I ache and long, For you to say The words I need to hear... I love you. I miss you. Do you feel the Wetness of my tears, As they fall down my cheek Over and over again? Sliding down, trickling down. A tiny river they have become. I love you more than anyone. I miss you. I miss you as sure as my heart...Read On

Your Eyes

When I look into your eyes Which I have done a thousand times My heart starts to beat faster Just like a roaring thunder in my ear. The eyes that seems to be beguiling The smiles which are very charming Seems to draw me ever closer Like nothing else seems to matter. As I slip into your welcoming arms A prisoner of your tender charms Strong emotions surged with pure bliss When...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

Loving You

When we are together Or when you are away My love for you grows With every passing day This treasure of you is Found within my soul How much do I love you No one can really know You've brought me a joy I've never known before With each smile and touch I cherish you more and more Whenever you say goodbye And when it's time to part Know I hold you dearly Deep within my heart ...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

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

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

The Way You Always

Missing You

The way I always felt your touch even before you touched me. The way I always felt your breath on my skin when you spoke to me. The way I craved your attention when you were busy. The way I longed for you when you were away. The way I felt safe when you touched me. The way I felt when you held me. The way I felt when you gave me your attention. The way I felt when you were all mine. You...Read On

Zone d'ombre

You felt it  So did I We both know what it was A sound that isn’t heard  Signals the end of love A mating call reversed Coupling undone A sound that isn’t heard That says we’re not in love A note that speaks of emptiness Like an abandoned home Not of an open spaciousness But something there, then gone With each two, it is different Never twice the same But clearly recognizable When...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

To Speak Of Passion

I want to speak of passion and all of its untold edges,  the barely tangible ones  that touch like a summer mist, the ones that spring forth  to take us in a furious storm. But to speak in such a way where all sings of intimacy  and the deepest intensity,  I have to touch upon everything,  not just the fire in your eyes,  I am searching for what  will survive beyond the flames. How you...Read On

I know

I know you are hurt. That you think you are ice. A thousand walls put up, Soldiers guarding every small cracks, Ready to defend the Enemy of memory, of what use to be, of new, possible love. I know you think you are Frozen forever, That you cannot truly love again, As before. I know you think you are monstrous, A beast, Undeserving of love From anyone and everyone. ...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

Shackles

Peace found thru Him.

I am ready... ready to throw off the shackles. Shackles of self-restraint, ready to share a secret or two. Secrets, secrets of my soul, secrets which I need to let go. Letting go of demons, demons which consumed most of my life. My life has always been for others, always being a quiet good girl, drowning inside. Drowning and wondering of my direction, is my compass aligned with my desires?...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

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

I Miss You Crazy

Do you ever miss me too?

Do you ever miss me  while you're busy with your life?  Do you wonder if I miss you? I do and My Heart Breaks. Do you ever need me  in the middle of the night  when you can't sleep?  I'd hold you,  stroke your hair  until you closed your eyes.  Watch your sleeping face and  softly kiss your lips.  Then My Heart Would Break. Do you ever think of me,  want me by your side? If I could ...Read On

Our Firsts

I remember every word Of our first conversation Giggles and blushing Accompanied by a swarm Of the first of many butterflies You would make me feel Eventually the first flutters Became the first "I love you" Saying goodnight impossible Leading to the first ache As we wished for more time Though distance hurts Our time will come If we never lose hope We will share our first kiss And...Read On

Why?

Do you, like me, sometimes ponder why things happen to be? Do you ever pause to consider what really is the cause? Do you ever wonder or marvel at what really is amazingly clever: why two separate people become entwined to love and mate? In this mystery play with its cast of millions how come my needle was plucked out of the hay? I ask, what did I do ...Read On

Maiden Smile

And the winds howl a distant mourn Down below a hellacious blow  Faraway, faraway a lustful tune While a tempest yawns a fare-thee-well As the open eye of the storm winks a kiss In the valley of the noonday brume Caressing your breasts Your maiden smile bliss I'll be singing a love song for you While whispers bring me to my knees As the buoy bell rings an echoing moan ...Read On

Love's Deception

How do we move on?

How to deal with love, life and time When the heart and spirit are made to pieces When disillusion breaks your world I never imagined crying such deception It is said time does not exist It is said it is all a process That everything passes us by That time is not consensual No more kisses and sweet caresses No more tender moments made No more love making in the rain The music from my heart...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

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

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

In the Sweet By and By

The day that we met I felt in the air A change in the wind The breeze in my hair A man who had come From far, far away Who would teach me to laugh To live and to play Our time spent together Flew by so fast One moment the first The next one the last You treated me well I felt like a queen Who would have thought Fate to be so mean One day I realized I was as free as...Read On
