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

You Were There

Though one angel was lost, another one remained.

On the darkest day, a day of uncertainty and confusion like no other, I was lost, no direction to be found. I was flying blind, no instrument to guide my way, no beacon to help me pass the rocks thrown in my path. *** I was grasping for answers, trying to find my lost angel. She lost her wings, flying too close to the sun, too close to the danger, too far from my reach, too far from...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

Warrior Angel

A classic struggle of love and belief

For every fallen angel Every one that is weak For every angel darkened There are a thousand or more That are tasked with mercy Each brimming with hope You are the enemy A trafficker of hate You are toxic evil Causing angels to weep A demon in disguise That seduces the weak You are not their love Nor are you their fate And you do not know me We have not yet met I am the fool that Treads...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

He Touched My Heart

He touched me through love and taught me to love.

He touched my heart as he passed by, and brought me peace before he died. He rocked my soul and gave it life through future's storm and bitter strife. My heart was colored by his thoughts he shared with me through trials bought. He taught my voice to sing again which had been stilled from where it's been. My feet learned how to dance on air, he held my hand and took me where the stars...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

My Song

The sadness of that song you sing Is another way for my life to begin I just don't wanna cause no more pain I just want your life to begin again Without me tearing you apart It's time for me to move on and Sing my song to someone else My song started with a cozy feeling Inside that caused butterflies to fly What a feeling, soft hearts of unbroken love I cant escape the past...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

The love that could not be

Dedicated to a very special person. She cannot be in my life, but she'll always be in my heart.

I was lost and I had stumbled But she caught me when I fell And when my demons got me She dragged me back from hell I fell in love completely With her eyes, her words, her voice But real life came between us And I had to make a choice I had to sever the connection Undo the bond we thought would stay I had to hurt the one that saved me And had to push true love away Yet...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

The night is alive

The night is alive Our feelings laid bare. Many questions arise But they are for another time. I paint my name in the darkness A shimmering hue.  I pray it appears. Do you see? My sky is yours as I take you for mine....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

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

Evidence

There's evidence left behind, I wish there was more that I could hold on to. A memory's surge is sweet, flashing with intimate stills that only you and I know exist, but sometimes recollection isn't enough. I've already curated what I can. Your smile as I opened the door, the intensity shimmering in your eyes when you began to unfold before me, the warmth that hung in the air after,...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

When I Stayed

Nothing seems to stir outside tonight, amplifying the stillness we share, your head cradled in my arm's crook, hairs slightly tickling with each breath. This is when I'd usually leave, gather clothes from the floor's pile that are tangled in all the ways we just were together. I would usually move like a thief throughout the dark house, noting how our possessions would mesh together...Read On

Urgent

Our urgent skin mingled together, a flash of violet and white flashed across the sky, danced along your intricate form as we began to reach out. Our hands were so uncertain then, hearts booming in tune with thunder, muffling the very first gasp we ever shared together. I wanted to press into you, into the mysterious thrum of two colliding. I close my eyes to absorb everything. The sound...Read On

Fabric Of My Soul

The pain of someone breaking your heart ...

Your tore at the very fabric of my soul ripping out my heart from within Tossing it upon the floor like a piece of rubbish before stomping on it Crushing all hope of finding true love by your cruel torment and lies Left shaken in the corner of our room a timid kitten shaken to it's very core Your vile words echo throughout my broken mind wallowing in the shame of reflection I see before me...Read On

Butterfly Wings

You don't know where I go afterwards, after a piece of me is left inside you. Some dim, frost-sheened winter glade or an endless beach of infinite grains where stars ignite against the still ocean, motionless in perfect celestial glows. And I won't be able to  tell you this is a memory, we'll still speak with touch even after descending from such furious passion unleashed. I won't tell...Read On

Always I

I write an email that will never be delivered. I continue the story that I know will never get an ending. I think of you each day though it breaks me a little more each time. I pray for the day you return, while knowing you never will. I wonder if I ever cross your mind, then doubt I ever do. I know I should forget you but it’s impossible for me to do so. I said I couldn’t forgive you...Read On

The Lie

Why did you do it? Was I not enough for you? The things you did and said, Hurt me so I must go through it. I gave you my all, My love, my life, and you took them. Only to stomp on it with your words and actions. You claim to be my best friend and my lover, But you are my enemy, my enemy of my own feelings. I love you, I want to devour you; I want to sink my teeth in...Read On

Mountain Man

For my wonderful

Like a wild river, Need and desire rage through his veins. Rushing, demanding and powerful, Endlessly seeking the great wide open. Like the forest trees, He dominates his environment, Tall and strong,  Protecting the small. Like the wind, Free, a force of nature. A powerful and fierce gust,  Or a warm breeze to comfort. Like the mountains, Wise, with endless secrets. Peaks...Read On

Insatiate

Your touch once almost told me that creatures  must find each other for some comfort, farther than what flesh can fortell, to press beyond where we have grown cold through the tender inlet where desire flows. We reach a burning core soon enough, that beautiful, dangerous human flash  which brings us back to ourselves, which will bloom far beyond us. And wherever we move from here, your...Read On

Whatever Passes Through

Just the taste of your skin,  like steam rising from a raging river, it's a heart helplessly on fire, the sound of a star roaring  through a still night sky. Whatever passes through here, I can promise this, you have woven all  seasons into me. Your delicate fingers once drew  maps in all possible directions. The image of such a touch alone  is more immediate and visceral  than any poetry...Read On

Our Love

You know my every secret, The darkness of my past. More than any other, Yet still you held me fast. You told me everything, But I loved you still. Nothing in your life, Could stop the love I feel. All the little kinks, And all the crazy bends.  We talked and talked, Became the best of friends. I shared my life, You shared yours. Families came next, They became ours. There were...Read On
