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

How Much Is A Heart Worth?

questions you may ask but never get an answer to

How much is a tear worth as it rolls down my cheek? How much are too many, too many to count? How much is my heart worth when it was given to you freely? How much is my soul worth when you chipped away pieces of it? How much are days and nights spent in endless agony and pain worth when you totally walked away? You left without a tear for me in deafening silence. ...Read On

If thou would be here with me

Man wishes the woman of his dreams could be with him

If thou would be here with me Wearing silk eggshell flows I would have played Pachelbel’s Cannon Taken your hand as if a sweet rose Roaming ‘cross the dance floor In sweet flowing elegance The candle lights flickering Illuminating your face Every delicate feature Alive in its grace… Your heart beat I’d know it As it races like mine Look to each other And see the divine Your...Read On

Forever Love

You opened my eyes to your love, lost and alone till you came and picked me. Over everyone else you showed me a better way to live and love with all my heart. You're my everything, my true love, my world, a breath I take, and my soul. Nothing will stop me from loving you for the rest of time in this place. Wrapped in your embrace tightly, holding me forever in your arms. ...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

A Kindred Spirit

They meet by happy chance, as life confers, And promptly comprehend deep certainty.  Fate's singular congruency occurs,  And both are gladdened by sweet destiny. Time passes as they open up their hearts, Send interlocking dreams and hopes to share. It matters not how separate their parts, All words and actions prove how much they care. It's understood that life is but a quest, Creating hope...Read On

Happiness

Love isn’t always pretty Or polite, Nor is it easy. Yet within the depth Of the very soul There is nothing we crave more, Need to be fulfilled. Lust is a force of life, Of nature, In essence the survival Of humankind. Desires drive us, Give new energy, A release of power. Two halves of a whole. As love and lust meet, We find our peace. Two pieces of individual strength, ...Read On

Baritone Of Prose

With a whispering brogue I the baritone of prose Soft shoeing with a smile With lines of poetic hue Shaking out with the grins And vibrations in the still With the quietness of a quill As your breath caresses And I in my interlude  Behind shadowed doors As the fever slowly rises Feeling your soft sighs Suspended by love strings 'Neath a crescent moon  I the baritone of prose...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

If

If I were...

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

Marked Again

A companion piece to my first poem published on Lush.

I wonder if you still feel me inside, if the winter traced along and marked your being as it did mine because certain threads still remain That convinced me our limbs could curl and spiral together, your frame indistinguishable from my own, never to part or know the cold in our bones or be in another's shadow ever again. And anything that was ever held close, every beam of light...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

Cruel Duress

She won't accept cruel censure by duress. Bestow it not upon this priceless jewel Who fills my soul with happiness and bliss, And will not be denied sweet love's renewal. No other lady shows such strength and charm. No gentlewoman holds my heart's delight. We shall rise upward never knowing harm Because our love is pure and knows no blight. Her sword of power forces cowards out, With every...Read On

Love Words

Words I love to hear...

Whisper to me softly As you hold me close Sweet gentle words of love The ones I love to hear the most Cradle my head Against your warm chest As I lay within your arms The place I love the best Gently kiss my brow Running fingers down my spine Tell me that you love me Words I love to hear all the time Hold me in your arms Snuggled safe against your side As we both allow ...Read On

Flyaway Robin

Those with wisdom beyond the sea, They are ones I feel most comfortly. When soft breath caresses my soul, The words of gospel I compose. Breaking bread with sensuality, And my swooning mind digest The beauty of your flesh. Oh what a bless on this earth, When a flyaway robin lay nest, And you grew into ambivalence, Before the wind took you away. And your sympathetic words of a bird,...Read On

Wind Strings

Like wind strings on a kite as petals weep, silently soaring above love song serenade, with sails and memories poetically swelling my heart, from a distance of a dream my kisses reach as if sung-strum melodies,  on a bow of a rainbow. Like winds strings on a kite when the grass turns over, a dewdrop will sigh as you lay beneath the grass, alone but not forgotten as petals weep,...Read On

Out of Place

The insecurities in me make me feel...

Confused, unknowing what to do. where do I go? Chocolate box, drown in it? It too can kill you. Breath... Scream... Yes I am alive, but why? The situation before me, my heart uncannily vulnerable, wounded, bleeding... Feeling alienated, a weirdo on my own, on my knees crying. Breath... Scream.. Yes I am alive, but why? Efforts, accomplishments, lost loves. Do I even matter?...Read On

Truly A Find

OK, so this is actually the first poem of the month...just wasn't sure I liked it...a 67Goat poem.

I have met so many women, Some with model looks. Others were so very bright, Had knowledge found in books. So many times a woman, Has stood out from the crowd. Hanging on my arm, She really made me proud. But over the years, as time has passed, I've come to understand. Most of those relationships, Did not work as planned. But now that I am older, And somewhat more mature. I have a...Read On

Missing You

Love lost

My soul reaches for it's other half, My heart cries for its mate. My mind says your gone, The mysteries of fate. Without you there is no sun, Only tears and pain. My life closes around me, In misery I see only rain. I tell myself no more, Will I cling to your love. No more crying out to you, No begging God above. It is but an addiction That I have fed too long, And I'll just have to get over...Read On

Reaching Out

love poem

Reaching out, knowing you're there, Knowing that you always care Always my shoulder to cry on, my comforting pillow, You remain steadfast, like a tree, my pussy willow Through the good times and bad, You hold me when I am sad Your warmth and affection is my own safe retreat, Your sweet love nourishes me, until I am replete Hear me baby girl, my lover, Know there will never...Read On

You are the Tree

For you my Cinner, you are the Tree. You are Strong.

The tree is standing. The wind is near. The rain is coming. The tree is strong. Stronger than it knows. The wind is here. The rain is here. The tree is bending. The tree is swaying. The tree is holding on. The storm has come. The wind is whirling around. The water is rising. The tree is planted deep down. The wind has gone. The water has receded. ...Read On

Delight In the Night

A lone patron becomes her focus for the night.

As the rhythm strikes, I sway to the beat For the man in black, As our glazed eyes meet. With a suit well pressed, He’s under my skin. As I twirl and grind, I’m dancing for him. A soloist tryst, Now a pas de deux. My face wears a mask, Which he can see through. My hands are fevered, Stoked by fire within. Fingertips, his touch, Alight on my skin. Graceful dips and twirls ...Read On

101 Words: Aunty Rose

Aunty Rose is on the prowl

Aunty Rose, Aunty Rose, How old is she? No-one knows. Thirty Two? Thirty Nine? All we know is she looks real fine. Although she's older than our Mum, Can't tear our eyes from off her bum. We see her training down the gym, But in other ways, she keeps trim. Those lovely legs, so strong and lean, A queue to spread them - boys so keen. She chooses one, a lucky bloke, Taken home, allowed...Read On

Lantern in the dark

My world died as I felt you remove yourself. My heart was torn from my body, By a rusty teaspoon of broken promise and unfulfilled want. The world was no longer for me, Just for those lucky enough to still have a soul. My spirit whisked onto the funeral pyre of futility, Thinking that this vacuum would be my sole habitat forever. I never saw it coming. I was as blind as Sulla, ...Read On

Bound

I must ask if I am bound to you, if knowing your exact place nestles you further into my heart. Or were we merely predators following invisible pheromone trails, obvious to the ancient nature of marking territories for the hunt. Does that bind you always to me? It's all the same in the end, foreign blood splashing the ground, prey shivering between our teeth. our naked borders will...Read On

Be Happy

"Be happy," he said. Like it's that simple. Like I haven't been trying.  Like saying "be happy" erases that I'm being put on the back-burner again being used as a back-up plan a last-resort when there's nothing better to do Saying "be happy" is supposed to change that he pissed me off again. "Be happy."  I want to be happy.  So desperately that I push too hard,  ask for too much,  move...Read On

My Box

Where I go to when I need to be safe, you may have heard it called subspace, I call it My Box

It is dark in here. It is safe. It is wonderful. Nothing can get to me. OH NO! He is here. He needs to leave. He was not invited. He is from the past. He scares me. Get out of my safe place! Wow, You’re here! How? Why? I am confused. “I have you” he says. There is light, You put holes in my box. You changed my darkness Now there is light. I close my eyes. You’re in my box!...Read On

Rise and Fall

Spring will come and go, Summer and autumn too, Winter will roll around, I'll still be looking out for you, Everything I do, I do in pursuit of you. The sun will rise and fall, The tides will go high and low, People will laugh and cry, With every day that goes by, Every moment I see, My eyes will search for you. I may have lost you once, But I won't lose you again, I'm...Read On

Willows Weep

When willows weep they sing lullabies, Like sensual dust as you lay sleeping, Of psalms and poetry.  Bringing tears of joy and happen stance, Every lasting prose promenading in dreams. The visions of one's soul.  In relevant ways main stays sway poetically, On gifts of engagement and seasons of the heart.  Eternal spring. Sharing embraces of sweeping soft breezes,  As if boughs...Read On
