Lost

I thought I needed more. But what I lost, Was ten times greater. I thought that his needs, Would be worth the risk. My need was nothing, I learned, Compared to my despair. Thought I had conquered acceptance. But my heart is finding, I have no clue what it means. The depth of this pain, Has taken me to my knees. This throbbing emptiness. Worse than any I have ever known.   ...Read On

Storm

Being with you Is like savouring the sun Through the gaps In the clouds In a storm Only there for the briefest of moments Gone away again Too soon Leaving me Eagerly awaiting your return Unpredictable And unique as a snowflake The thunder sounds The flash of lightning The rain crashes and tumbles The wind blows But as you reappear The sadness I felt Falls down around me...Read On

She needs

She needs to be held, But not just by anyone. She needs to be held By him that wants to hold her, Keep her close, Protect and care for her. She needs him to desire her, Not be there out of obligation Or for a brief moment. She needs him to miss her Like she misses him And hurry back when he can. She needs to feel safe with him, Know that he holds Both her heart and body with...Read On

What's Between Us

There is a distance that can be mapped along skins, the geography between us when parting, when our words unintentionally carve cold spaces that can trace a dark side we just found the existence of. Places left scorched and unattended, I try to remember what burned there, what bound lonely flesh too closely to tell apart. Maybe I need the tension between us, like invisible cables...Read On

Dance Me

Please, dance me to heaven.

Come dance with me one final time; I'll dance you up to heaven's door. We'll waltz around the moon and back and tip toe o'er the stars that soar. The lightning will enhance our steps as thunder rolls to set the beat. The Milky Way will be our guide while gentle breezes lift our feet. Come dance with me, I'll hold you tight in love's embrace, you'll never fall. One last love's glance,...Read On

The Dark And Endless Night

The dark and endless night of my soul  stretches out before me. Empty hallways echo with silent intent for the loss of my dreams. Jousting with my dreadful doubt again is my fragile feverish fear. Questions bounce from side to side now on the walls of my mind. Songs dwindle and die with a whimper as notes are brushed away. My thoughts are tentative and credulous when pondering your acts....Read On

The Winner Takes It All

Listening to Abba. Popular music often mirrors life. That's why it's popular. The winner takes it all. You thought it was moving right along. And really, You were only Treading water, While she was rescuing another. Another heart to fill her emptiness, The emptiness you knew was there, And wanted to declare You could touch, And succor. But  The winner takes it all. You were too slow,  And...Read On

Heart Storm

When the Heart cant decide...

Lightning zips across the sky As I stand inside The bright light arcs I continue to hide I hear the thunder boom Feel the house shake Is this weather a sign? Of the steps I should take? The storm sounds so angry As it continues to scold Makes me reconsider Having my feelings told Now comes the hail Along with the wind I wonder with whom Tonight I will spend Storm has finally passed...Read On

To Break Or To Be Broken

I’m not one who likes the business of heart-breaking, Perhaps it is because I’m used to my own heart being broken, I’ll sit and wait for the text I know is coming, “I loved you, but the chord's no longer strumming, I’m leaving in the morning, I trust there’ll be no mourning” But personally I find its delivery painful, It all seems slightly woeful, The instant severance, Leaves me...Read On

Secret Longing

How does it feel to be left wanting? To know what you need, but it’s just out of reach. No one to confide in, that safety net is gone; Do you feel big and strong, or do you feel meek? When she holds you at night, does your mind wander? Do your dreams betray you in your sleep? Warm in your arms do you dare tell her? In the end you know you only sew what you reap. What do you think...Read On

Moonlight

Love for some friends

By the moon I sit to seek your glory, The white rose I see creates a new story. Seasons are many, Their reasons few in between. What remains is that I always Love you! For all to see, No matter where we're at, No matter the time But this moment That we seek. For this moment In the moonlight, I'm loving you, No matter what they say No matter what they do. Your the one whom I love, My...Read On

She

On Monday Night - Part I

First kiss, first bliss...

Flaming skies change to evening, hot and heavy and damp. Lazily yielding as sunlight dies, Waking is the same as dreaming to a genie in her lamp. Dripping in faux humanity her exalted demon was queen. Yet, in her nudity, she is but a woman, not a fiend, and subject to fluidity. Warm, wet, shadows and the sound of a busy city wander through open windows, greeted with enmity. At first...Read On

Have You Ever

Have You Ever... Have you ever sat and wondered why your life turned out the way it did? Have you ever sat and wondered what youi could have done differently? Have you ever sat and wondered if you would ever find mr/mrs right as opposed to Mr/Mrs right now? Have you ever sat and wondered how to change the outcome even when the odds are stacked against you?

She Is

I can't. I don't. I won't. Figure it out. I have no doubt. She is. What words. Can't describe. I try. I want. I need. To finally find. No peace of mind. She is. Still nothing. Words can describe. I search. I wander. I beg. For some phrase. All is a haze. She is. Everything. I can't describe. Higher than heaven. Stronger than expression. More descriptive than writing. I struggle...Read On

My Voice

Hear My Voice

You perceived my kindness as weakness. Now my strength is perceived as selfish. You perceived my silence as compliance. Now my voice is perceived as vile. You perceive my friendliness as reconciliation. Now my explanations are perceived as lies. You perceived my actions as needy. Now my actions are perceived as self-centered. You perceived my love as a reason to control. Now...Read On

Words

Words have become of great value, In my life without intimacy. Words that make me beautiful, Worthy to see and admire. Words that set me on fire, Whispered in my ear, or cried out in passion. Words that stimulate my imagination, A shiver running down my spine. Words that excite me, And make me yearn for fulfillment. Words that echo in my head, Hours after they are spoken. Words that make...Read On

Almost Unknowable

You don't need to say it all yet, tell me what you find there now. When I sharply inhale your name, fold it deep into the lungs, the heart's unique signature, until the letters are a chant growing far beyond itself. With skin as soft as moonlight,  bones beneath rearranging, rising along the smooth iliac crest,  pulse singing against the clavicles.  Tell me what it means now.  To be...Read On

Through His eyes

It is wonderful And scary at the same time When someone sees you as special, As someone of great value. On one hand it makes you fly, Find belief and joy, Pride in that you matter. At the same time, The worry is there, Of not being able to live up to it, Afraid you will fail or disappoint. He sees her In a way she doesn’t understand. She is a bit of a broken soul, In a broken...Read On

i want you

I want you, No I need you, All I do,  Is think of you. I want to be there for you. I want to care for you, I am ready, To be with only you. I want to make this work, I will do everything in my power, To make you happy, In every hour. I will give you my heart, Please choose me, And give my lonely heart, Some company....Read On

One Night of Grace

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Hush and soothe this night away; Kiss the velvet skies to day; Hum a lullaby of peace And let my love for you increase. Smooth my cheek and rest awhile; Sing a heart song, sleepy smile. Hold me closer, kiss me soft; Sweetly hold my dreams aloft; Ease away the tautened worry; Send the nightmares...Read On

Raw reflection

From the taste of his lips…. to her soft sensual touch, Thoughts rush her head… of passion, so much. The spark in her heart and the glint of his eye, On the bed…skin to skin, naked they lie. Pent with desire, their love overflows, Kissing his neck ….his longing so grows, From his neck to his chest…. with her lips she does trace, His hands free to explore...Read On

Soft Petals

I would never want to keep you  from the eyes of everyone else, but you're just out of my reach,  a reminder carved into me about  the distance between skins. Someone else always sees  what I first saw in you,  never the infinite layers beneath,  never the immutable heart I can feel  beating so perfectly with my own.  It seems no one cares to see that side of me,  I'm all flesh and lies...Read On

Rainy Day Kismet

Gingers have no souls. In gleeful dismissal our souls formed into one.

The rain was falling on that fateful day As autumn weather forced me to stop by. Beside a window watching trickles play, Whilst stirring tea, she heaved a heavy sigh. Side glances to her face at somber rest; Soft, cradled in a dainty hand, her chin. Thick locks, of titian, formed a wavy nest; Inspired my sense of wonder, and a grin. She surely had a soul, I smiled within, For beauty such...Read On

This Gift

It is a gift, I really wanted to give it. I want all that it means. I'm new, in an old way. I know the procedure. I know the elements.  I know the desires. My gift is special. It is one of a kind. It is irreplaceable. Though it feels insignificant, Imperfect, insatiable. I want it to complete me, Not to leave a hole. Not in my heart, my heart is overflowing I can't tell...Read On

Moths to Flames

Why are moths led by flames, eternally drawn in to burn?

Entranced by the beauty of the fiery flicker. Moths to flames drawn to burn, but why? Mind ensnared and heart beats quicker  leads the moths to dance and die. Never understood what was the draw, how or why such a course was flown. What formed such a fatal flaw, the moth's fate already known. Until the day I met my flame and found a way to understand, when her voice called my name ...Read On

If I were a poet, I would pen for you the poem of ages, words from perfection itself, flowing from paper to your heart, carrying the awe of my love If I were a painter, I would create for you the lover’s work, the universe would be my canvas, for only the entirety of creation, could hope to contain my love If I were a writer, I would author for you the final epic, the end...Read On

Signature

Your lips can be the signature, writing your name on me over and over again on every page between the shadows, the loving contrast to my darkness. Swaying together beneath Heaven's lid, the sky's silent infinity pierced by the starlight covering you and I, I'll think about it much later on, the innocence in such moments. The inescapable gravity that pulled your lips to mine, how...Read On

I am

When you cry I'll be your shoulder and kiss your tears away, When your hurt I'll take your pain away. I'm your friend at your side. When you feel lost I'll find the way out for you, When you feel the darkness closing in Just reach out your hand, I'll be your light at the end. I'm your sunlight in the sky. When despair moves into your heart I'll replace it with my love, When the river...Read On

Coming Home

This long trip has been a blessing. Each mile bringing me closer to you. Will you forgive me for leaving? I'm not sure what you will do. I sought my fame and fortune. Time and distances pulled us apart. I know now you are my riches. Can you still allow me in your heart? My mind drifts to those magical times, Where we walked and talked as one. How we'd face each day with hope. ...Read On

It Could Be Sweeter

I'll keep your touch like a secret sewn just beneath the skin, so when you run away, I don't have to be quite ready to go let you go. And I wish it could be sweeter, the taste of your kiss and breathing you in, I wish it didn't hurt us to be closer than this. I was too passive to chase and claim with the same raw force you could so easily sweep me away with, the force that others...Read On
