Worthy

Like so many women She always tried to be perfect, To be everything to everyone, A wonderful wife, A resourceful employee, A trusted friend, A hot lover, A good daughter. In the middle Of trying to play all these parts, Be there for everyone, Somehow she forgot herself. She rarely took time To do things for her, Or love herself The way she loved others. Setting...Read On

What I Want

My very first piece. Honest opinions highly regarded.

To have love, to have been loved To want and to be wanted Is this what it is to have lived? Is this who I am, or am I without a path? A nomad in this world, a wanderer, a Ronin Are not the best destinations found without a map? To follow free will, a whim, or a myth Does knowing what to want defeat all purpose? It is the journey I need, not the trophy awaiting Am I in this alone? 7...Read On

Still

I want to still the blinking fragments,  ones that time will want to break apart,  like ashes and snow swirling through the faint  cold sigh of every January wind. I could keep you so close to me,  cling to seconds otherwise edited or stolen  by memory's shuttering lens,  none of the narrative would be lost or  translated into unreliable histories. We'll be able to remember what soothes...Read On

Relapse

Difficult times should embrace hope instead of fostering hopelessness

Lying By myself To myself Alone in our bed Lying Dying Deep in my head Dreams By you Of us Unspoken word Cherished Perished Only silence heard Addicted By you To you Fuck without touch Addicted Conflicted Love you too much Wasted By you For me Pray for relapse Lusting Thrusting Someday perhaps...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

Soft, So Soft

Soft, so soft the skin on your cheek, with the down of desire so silky smooth to the touch. I lightly stroke you with the tenderness of a lover transforming your tears to smiles, tracing down your face from each bedewed eyelid to your lips, tasting the salinity of loss. I fulfill. I am the one to bring you forth and bear you up into the heights of passion, with a forgetfulness of...Read On

Wrapped Up In You

The precious joining of two hearts…

I'm all wrapped up in you babe As we're lying side-by-side Our arms and legs entangled There's nowhere left to hide Tender words are being spoken As our hands pet every curve And our hearts are pounding wildly Our passion's touching every nerve It's here alone that I’m at peace When the two of us are one All the world just drifts away And every angst becomes undone When our...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

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

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? Have...Read On

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

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

Come

One last dance to hiold you close.

Come dance with me a 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 lightening 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 and never ever let you fall. One last embrace, one final kiss, to...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
