Dreams Take Me Away

The wind whistles Against the window  Of my soul  Closing my eyes  Dreams take me away  Where beaches rest A light breeze stirring  Its warmth so gentle  The moonlight winks  On the crest of a wave  Waves kissing the shore  With soft slow kisses The pulse of my dream  Like wings  Beneath my heart  Carrying me away  Through time and eternity  Clouds dancing  Swirling around  The midnight...Read On

I Know Where Your Heart Lies

I know where your heart lies. It lies with me, always. In the deep of night, When the whipoorwill calls. And in the glory Of the morning sun. As the dew on the roses settle. It lies with me as I am sleeping, With every heartbeat that beats within me. I know where your heart lies. As the clock ticks the minutes. The minutes turn to hours and Hours turn into days. I...Read On

A Dedication To My Lover

A tribute to my second mother, lover and confidante.

We met here on Lush, over two years ago Our hearts for each other beginning to grow, Seeing each other for the very first time Drinking gin and tonic, garnished with lime. Like a mother who brought me from depths of despair Loving me tenderly and brushing my hair, Sharing her husband in times of my need Bringing me to orgasm, and doing their deed. Her sweet smiling face...Read On

A Teardrop's Silence

Overwhelmed, our vulnerable hearts fill up, fragile from the weight of emotion, yet there is no collapse or implosion, only the soundless falling of a single tear. A drop in the ocean without noise or ceremony, I can feel it reverberating somewhere in the voice that I know and a stranger's cold echo lies the silence of letting so much of myself go. Letting them go is a release so profound,...Read On

Romeo and Juliet... Revisited

A modern look at Romeo and Juliet

Let me tell you a story about two young lovers,  A tragic love story, been told by many others. The servants of Montague, and of Capulet, Fought for their Masters, sometimes until death. Escalus warned them not to breach the peace again, Or he would see to it, every one of them was slain. The feud between the houses started long ago, Neither would surrender, or let the hatred go. ...Read On

Have You Ever Loved

Have you ever loved someone with your whole heart No matter how broken, believing their love can heal you Have you ever needed someone to feel so alive Needing them more than you need air to breathe Someone to hold the broken pieces of your soul In hands that can mold them and make you whole Have you ever been so lost in fear and pain Knowing only their love can soothe your soul ...Read On

Beautiful Dreams

Searching for sleep It evades me Eludes me Defying logic In the quiet moments Thoughts of you Fill my heart Vivid in my mind I close my eyes Hearing your voice Tasting your kisses The taste of ecstasy You feel like home Comforting Welcoming Familiar If I let my imagination Run freely Our soundtrack Plays music in my heart Images flash Steamy showers Breathtaking kisses And...Read On

Wild Heart

Looking for inspiration Only a few words  Listening to the sounds  Wobbling and shaking  There is music  In the wind  Songs of birds  Soft and sweet  The sun is shining  Bright and warm Wherever I am  Whether it is  Far or near  You are with me  Close to my heart  I am a dreamer  And you have a plan  For there is  A far better love song  Melodies of pleasure  For you and me Whisper softly...Read On

Please Tell Me That You Can Stay

First love poem of the month...

I watch you lie so quiet and still, You really are a lovely sight, So many dreams you helped fulfill, As I recall our previous night. As the morning sun begins to rise, I watch you lie silent on the bed, A soft glow dances upon your eyes, The pillow softly cradles your head. The morning sun bathes you in light, As you slowly start to awake, My thoughts soon turn to delight, As I think of...Read On

The Right Words

Are words enough... To explain how your gentle touch Literally takes my breath away Or how just the sound of your voice Makes butterflies flutter inside me Are words enough... To explain how I feel myself fall in love all over again with every kiss we share To even begin to explain the extent of the longing and love that I feel for you Are words enough... To convey to you that my...Read On

Keeping Quiet

these words are from long ago

If the sound of me saying, I love you, will make you angry,  I prefer never to speak of my sentiments. If the feelings cannot be returned, my heart will also let you go, and I will forget the beauty of us. Others said this can not last, but to my regret, I turned a deaf ear, the thought was imperishable. Although, I must admit circumstances have always made this bitter sweet, and caused...Read On

Holiday Wishes

A wish to be with you this holiday,  A sleigh ride in the crisp air. Sweet kisses in this magical sleigh, The wind blowing at our hair. Warm cocoa shared it's very hot, To be with you and hold you tight. The warmth of the drink hits the spot, I love being with you tonight. We walk along the town square, Looking at holiday windows. Children squeezing their teddy bears, The temperature is...Read On

Messy Love

Love is a word that defies definition. It is more beautiful than even the most vivid imagination can envision, it is spontaneous, combustible and messy, very messy. Love is not limited by an elementary arrangement of four simple letters. The limitations only arise from our ability to feel the billions of elements that combine together to become one. The definition would have to...Read On

Our Love

Until you find it, you don't realize how much love can change your life

Our love so new, yet so familiar My carnal need for you is so raw Our love demands my full attention It is a pure emotion without flaw Your love is a comfort to me Pulling it over me, covering me A familiar blanket protecting me Finally from restraint, I am free Your love eases my suffering My very own medical miracle Comfort where there was only pain Making the long nights bearable ...Read On

Warm Sunshine

As we drink our fill of the warm sunshine

We linger awhile upon the grass Where chequered shadows of clouds doth pass, Shrouding the sun and its warming rays reach Before passing on to let the summer heat preach. How quiet it is, this peaceful scene, As though all were lost and no longer seen. Washed away with the last heavy rain So that you and I are all that remain. A sight more beautiful could not be seen Surrounded...Read On

Serendipity

He became her serendipity

He had me from hello, such a simple word Little did we know that it would change our world I can't believe how short it's been since our first friendly chat When we said goodnight at last, I thought that was that But our talks did not stop there, they only grew to be more Could this really be the man I had always searched for How can love happen so fast that we don't even know it The...Read On

I Do Not Love You

We love as though a lifetime had been spent just waiting.

I do not love you like a whisper on a breeze, Or softly as the warm summer rain. I am consumed each day by a ruthless hunger, That glows like a burning ember buried deep inside. We exist like a fire in potentia, Waiting for the breath from that first kiss To ignite an unforgiving and unrelenting blaze That will devour us both once it is set free. I do not love you like the...Read On

Beautifully Flawed

To, Tony, the one who taught me to see the world differently.

They say that the mirror never lies. In the mirror I saw every imperfection. But is the world's truth really within the mirror's unforgiving reflection? Or does beauty lie in the eyes of the beholder? I grew to hate my body's imperfections. In the reflection I could only see scars, flaws and countless shortcomings. Was my reality in the beholder or mirror? Inundated with...Read On

My Love For Simplicity

A poem dedicated to my love, Simplicity

How often does love confound us?  How often does love perplex?  How often does love confuse us? And how often does love cause stress? I've loved enough times to realize  It's often far too complex.  The battle of wills  And the pain it instills  Often turns joy into vex. What I long for these days is more subtle It's something so easy to say. I long for a love with no trouble  Just a...Read On

Butterfly Wings

We must learn to crawl Before we can walk Day dreaming someday We could finally fly Life is unpredictable Hearts easily are broken The dream of flying At times almost forgotten We can become lost Simply numbing the pain Hiding in our own cocoon Afraid to feel the hurt If we are willing to try again To let ourselves feel love Despite the risk of failure Then anything is possible ...Read On

Silent Moments

Some things exist only in the silence, in the spaces in between the noise stolen moments in life's chaos where true love simply exists. When life's constant noise stops finally we get to just breathe. It is in these rare moments when we realize life's fragility. Love, for me, was always fleeting. Finally, I found a beautiful man whose soul hears all of the words I could never begin...Read On

Self-Confidence

Girl, Darling, My dear friend. Please don't do this. This, whatever you are doing, Just stop. You don't need a man to define you, Much less, a man to make you strong. You don't need a man to tell you, Just how beautiful, you really are. And you especially, Don't need a man, to tell you how sexy you are. Fuck that. Instead, walk to your mirror, And say "I am...Read On

Dance with Me

you know what i want.... dance with me, dearest....

You tell me, "Come close," and I cannot resist. The music and my desire are all for you. My hands touch your waist and slide under your shirt...... your skin like fire under my seeking hands. Mouth kissing.... tongue tasting the corner of your mouth, your chin, your neck. My clothes have fallen away except for the black stilettos that drive you crazy and...Read On

Four Little Buttons

Whispering Into your ear Sweet things that  Makes you weak This hunger  Within me You follow  My every move As my hand  Flowing over you Working my way  Going down  There…There…  To beyond  What awaits me there My body moves  With a sensual motion My fingers a feather  So light and soft A touching kiss  To mark the time See the glowing  In your smiley eyes Feeling...Read On

As He Sleeps

As he sleeps next to me I wonder, Does he understand what I see When I look into his gentle eyes Every time he says he loves me? As he sleeps next to me I wonder, Does he realize he rescued me, Not from the perils of the world But from hurt even I couldn't see? As he sleeps next to me I wonder, If he loses himself in our embrace? Does he feel butterflies like I do  As his kisses trail along...Read On

If

In my heart ... The answer is I would

If I saw you tomorrow Would I give you my heart If I knew all the answers  Would I still ask the questions If I knew how much I would love you Would I still love so deeply If I thought I would get hurt Would I still choose this path Well tomorrow is here  I give you my heart I know some answers  But I have more questions I accept the hurt, for the love is greater I'm walking down...Read On

When the night sounds Are all you hear  Dance with me tonight  Under the stars above  Where the sparkling sky  Twinkles like diamonds Enchant me  With your charming words  Take me to a place of bliss  To an endless adventure  Where dancing smiles  Create a lingering kiss Comfort me in your gentle arms  With two hearts beating as one  A fleeting touch of our hands  So soft and...Read On

Genesis

Love’s moment of creation

Plucked from her branch, perfect apple sweet, In the heart of his own paradise. Her centre a havoc of lustful heat. His voice a litany of vice. The act forbidden, her body unsung, As his teeth broke her porcelain skin. The flavour of her lingered upon his tongue. Ravaged innocence their cardinal sin. Dazed euphoria caused her mind to spin, Revelled he in the joys of curious woman....Read On

only a shadow

anyone else will only be a shadow

just when I think I am finished, that I can move on, I hear you speak. once again I become a part of that pulsing river flowing warm and dark into itself. my heart longs for a rhythm that will never be again . and perhaps never was. . but dreams still call as I seek that kiss that will equally satisfy... that heart that knows mine and thinks it is full of...Read On
