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

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

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

Dark Seas

She's swimming in dark seas Asking people to tell her what she forgot. Time marches backwards. There's dark seas in her eyes and heart.   She's on her hands on knees, memories coming. They're swirling at the speed of light. Freezing cold water ,the color of midnight. Hypnotic and flashing at the speed of light.   Thunderous waves crash endlessly, Hearts explode anytime she...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

I want you

it's never enough.

I want you for an hour I want you to be mine I want to lay down naked so our bodies intertwine I want you for a weekend I want to take it slow I want to kiss your body so that every inch I know I want you for a whole year I want to know you well I want to make you feel so good you fall under my spell I want you for a lifetime I want you to be free I want to make you wanted so you want to...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

I Love You

Hey, I Love You! I just want to be there for you Want to share all your sorrows and joys and pleasure Want to protect you for my entire life Want to take your hand Walk across the park side by side With a lot of happiness across my heart With a casual talking Be amazed by how you see me I want to take you by hips Drop you on the bed Kiss you on the lips And make love...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

Luna

Random midnight poem

What is it.. About the moon..  To look above, She makes you swoon. She is so hypnotic, Mystery and unknown beauty. In some ancient language, She speaks of an eternity. Lovers share that same moon, Some nights tears are shed, Crying for the sun, To erase the memory of why we bled. Others lie embraced, Grasping at the light, Touching that eternity, That's only felt...Read On

Ocean's Roar

Gazing at the shore Above the ocean's roar I look upon the moon And long for her once more Waves go rushing in I see her face again And wonder if she'd change My loss into a win It's doubtful now I know Still I did love her so But feelings fade to gray When loving cannot grow Saltwater mists I feel Near shores that still seem real Without her smile so bright My ship has shown its keel ...Read On

Sloe Gin Of Autumn

It wasn't but a moment ago in time, Of frost and dew...honeysuckle vines And the slow gin of Autumn.  Days it rains, mainly on the plains, In Savannah between songs of birds. The thrill is still there. Our first house and yellow balloons, Gravel path and tea garden, With a willow tree. Grandchildren swinging on an old tire, Lemonade treat in the heat And band aids for their boo-boos....Read On

Our Hearts Beat As One

We sat looking at each other Like two teenagers At the back of the balcony What I wanted was obvious You wanted it too So badly, we craved it My arm went on your shoulder I pulled you to me We both knew what was next Our eyes locked together Our bodies leaned closer Our hands moved into position It was time, overtime really We played at it long enough We loved each other ...Read On

Why is the Coffee so Bitter

Its sometimes hard to decide to re enter into that relationship isn't it.

Why is the coffee so bitter,  Morning light so very stark, Why do dust modules dance and flitter, And the dogs do that morning bark? I look across my empty bed, No sign of weight on the pillow, Not a hair from your handsome head, Only the leaves brushing against the window from the willow. A single tear always forms,  The aching emotion hiding behind the eye, As a memory of the...Read On

Lonesome Me

While in this state of confusion this delicate illusion  Of you and me What once was and what was before, can be nevermore Cause now there are three You hide, I seek, you expose all, I peek At a version of you that not all will see Your rapturous beginning and our prolonged ending May just have taken root with me She offers you the unknown far more than I’ve shown ...Read On

Did You?

Did you my love, ever really feel the need? The pull of me... Across your aching belief That love, pure love is not what we make But the depth, the hunger, that everlasting ache Promises you made never meant to fulfil The taste of the end so bitter so still So I ask you today this hour this night Did you ever see a future when you held me so tight? You whispered my name as you came...Read On
