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

Dark Matters

Something familiar hangs between us, a certain palpable charge hinting at a wealth of untold histories, a spark that becomes a violent light. Perhaps too beautiful to last, too far away to hold, but I still see all of you, I still know you in the dark. You'll hold on long after we part, I'll feel it all over my flesh like beautiful phantom limbs, something too sacred to let go of. A mark...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

Favorites

Sleeping in on a Saturday... A bird chirping a sweet song Wind whipping through my hair The smell of fresh clean laundry A rainbow glowing across the sky Dancing to my own beat The thunderous applause of the crowd A crispy apple Juice running down my chin The heat of the sun on my back The crunch of freshly packed snow under foot Laughter, laughter, laughter! The excitement on...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

Lost Cyber Friend

Should the passing of a friend into the cyber darkness remain so emotionally intense?

Not huge, this wound my heart endures this hour Not like the gaping hole a blade might leave Nor even close to wounds from rude gunfire Yet hurt, I truly am, and I do grieve. Her memory finds me when all is quiet When life’s endless demands are held at bay When I have shut my book, turned off the light In predawn hours before the break of day Her endless joy, her boundless zeal for life ...Read On

Is it Better?

They say it is better to have loved, and lost, than to never have loved at all. Do our hearts have to choose?   It is better to have loved?   Loved the feeling of electricity from the first time our fingers laced Loved the taste of your lips when they melted against mine Fire in my eyes, as I looked into the lust and cherish in yours, the moment we became one Belonging to you,...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

Supposed To Be

A promise...

Our hearts beating together In a rhythm as old as time My body cradles yours As it pulses deep within mine I hold you close to me Not wanting this to end When I am within your arms It is so easy to pretend Pretend we belong to each other That we do not have to lie As you remove yourself from within me I turn away, quietly begin to cry “Please don’t,” you say, I promise you ...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

True Colors

You've shown me your true colors. I needed you, and you weren't there as I held my arms out to you. You forgot all about me as countless tears fell, My heart breaking again and again. This went from a beautiful fairytale to my worst nightmare. I thought you were different than all the others before. I love you and I always will. Tears run down my face as I'm missing you. You closed yourself...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

Morning Glory

Good morning  Morning glory My cherished flower child. Eternal In your glory My ageless treasured one. Exquisite In your glory My burning dancing heart. Electric In your glory My precious joyous dove. Majestic In your glory My laughing soul's delight. This morning May your glory Betoken what may come. The lustful passions spreading From dusk until the dawn.  The earnest loving laving...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

Summer Love

Our love is like a butterfly

You walk through meadows, below enchanted skies, Nature’s ephemeral beauty, so little time; Each bloom a sweet receptacle for the butterflies, So your lips impart - their nectar onto mine. Summer breeze, relaxing, the faintest warm caress, Smiling florescence, its pollen soon released; Carried yonder field, winter’s stagnation redressed, The psyche, a fleeting, colourful caprice. ...Read On

Why Her?

She asked me why her?

She stares at me intent eyes pleading, question lingering and her very core hanging on my answer. Why her, she'd asked, her gaze unwavering reading my expression, looking for signs of truth? Of hope? In silence I search for words to capture the surge of bliss that rises within me because she asked. How do I describe such a visceral response I feel in...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
