Broken Again

The pain of losing your love

Boxed up and forgotten, A passion neglected for so long. Un-used and alone, Worthlessness took over. Then I met Him. The softest kiss upon my lips, I felt his strength that moment. His words unlocked hidden desires, Doubt crept in. Then I accepted Him. He opened my eyes, Gave me my value. Opened my soul and poured his in, My wall came down. Then I adored Him. Your heart is mine he...Read On

Lyra

As the year turns over and some things are put to rest, I made a list just for you. You always did love the things that were just ours to hold, beautiful vignettes that lit your eyes, dark scenes that clipped your heart. I'd list last new year's eve, your finger hushing my lip before saying what can't ever be taken back. "Let's keep this simple and just enjoy this...Read On

He's Not Mine

That time of morn again, The time when I wake up, Just for a second I think he’s next to me, And then I remember, He’s with his wife. He’s with her, Waking up next to her, Her skin warming his, His lips kissing her good morning, Touching her when he should be touching me. That time of day again, The time when I have my lunch, The stolen calls he makes, Telling me he loves me, ...Read On

My Shenandoah

My emotions run deep when in my obscurity beyond the shadows of the wall,  calling of the ague my thoughts of sensuality. Like tumbling waters over stones And the wilding of my offerings,  feverish kisses I scribe, hungering for you. It wasn't but a touch ago in meadows of flowers I held you so  And caressing your skin, I got the ague. Now the rapids of life wash over me  and...Read On

New Beginnings

For Hunter, with love...

It started with a simple hello Only a few short weeks ago Each day we would talk a little longer A bond between us growing stronger You are on my mind day and night It may be wrong but feels so right Your words are so loving and warm You ooze with romance and charm I can’t wait to see the man who holds my heart Knowing that we both need a brand new start In two weeks...Read On

The Wait

Dreaming of a lover...

And so on, towards the year’s end, Time devours all, And lovers seek salvation, in the arms of lovers. The grandfather clock in the hall ticks, And she sips tea, through scarlet lips, An auburn curl, loose across her cheek; She watches raindrops, Running down the pane. And somewhere he, To the roar of breaking waves, And the light of a guttering candle, Writes...Read On

Flowers of His Love

He gave me gifts of love

  My love gave me a flower, right before my first real kiss. A morning glory of such depth, I sunk in its abyss. He held me close and promised me protection all my days. We watched the stars, the Milky Way, while in his arms I lay. My love gave me a flower, on the day that he proposed. On bended knee he handed me a gentle little rose. Through tear filled eyes I pledged my love as he did...Read On

The Distance Between

Shall I desist and let it go, or should I beg on bended knee to be forgiven. For what, I ask it over and over again, and still no answer comes, none makes sense. Hard to comprehend, hard to decide, knowing I have done nothing, and yet, I did something else why the distance the irreconcilable distance you place between us. Stars are dying, have died and yet have not left the night sky....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?

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

There Was A Time

The end of a relationship, sadness

There was a time Was it a crime I tried to so hard Defending my heart But you slipped in Made me care When many others Would not dare You knew I didn't Need all that I was avoiding All of that crap I wanted to Be left be Men like you Are not for me But you gave chase Relentlessly So obsessive Demanding me But truth be told You are distasteful The way you are now Seems just hateful ...Read On

Can I Watch?

Will you tease me as I watch you maturbate?

Can I watch... ... as you slowly unbutton your blouse, one button at a time Teasingly spreading the material apart, offering a glimpse of your skin Sliding it off your shoulders in slow motion, one hand at a time ...you turning around, unclipping your sheer lace bra Letting the straps fall way from your back, before you toss it at my feet ... you pulling your belt through each loop...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

My Heart Rests

Breaking up is never easy to do.

Confusion Disillusion Misconceptions Delusions Illusions to my eyes Punishment and lies I hold my head and sighed Quite often I do cried Weakness, I can't abide it Strength, I will find it For I cannot Endure Any More My heart aches breaks Shudders Shakes It's like Devastation From my heart Evacuation Running away Coming back How dare I move on So attack I dared and cared When I did so...Read On

She was Far from A Virgin

Thoughts before sleeping

She was far from a virgin when I first met her But every time is a first time for me. Every kiss,every sigh,every tear is a new beginning. She was far from a virgin when I first met her, now I see myself in her eyes in everything I do. Our hearts,our souls,breathe one life. I was far from a virgin when I first met her, only a schoolboy playing childhood games. Now knowing who I am...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

Tiny Woods

In heather of tiny woods Gift of nature Your beauty glows Honeysuckle shows In tranquil forest near And jasmine scent Silent whispers of bees Whispering honey flow From combs in trees Cascading smiles And wildflowers scent Like dryads in shadows Crescents of your green eyes Showing beacons happiness And love's caress Trickle down stream Cascading dreams In heather...Read On

Borrowed

A scratchy old 78 pithily portends the poignant resolution of a passionate affair

You say I'm merely borrowed Like in some old cliché Of a song recording sorrow In some other place, on some other day Well let me tell you, Miss I have no more time, no more love than this Please accept the half I have to give Though sad, this is the life I live * I'm not a book off some old shelf Pen, sweater or a coat I'm a person, something like yourself Just trying...Read On

Snow-angels

Days sometimes hit us, Specially as the snow covers the ground. The world dark and frozen, People huddling together to stay warm, Looking forward to celebrating A time of light in all the darkness. Once in a while, On days like that, She is struck by the memories. Things from her past, both good and bad, But most of all, Remembering those loved ones no longer here. When...Read On

Where Sleeps His Love Tonight?

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Where sleeps his love tonight? Is she under canopies of deepest midnight velvet, Or graced beneath the weeping willow's sweeping arms? Does she lie in shadows of snowy mountains, Or rest beside a murmuring brook of gentle dreams? Sleeps she in an angel's gaze, Lost palaces of ancient days...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

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

I Was Always Strong

No. Nothing is wrong. Go away. Go away. Please...don't stay. Is it time to get up. Is it that time again. To get up. It's dark inside. Is it time to get up. It's time for me to think. I need to think. I need to let my memories bathe me, and rush over me, until I feel nothing. Nothing is wrong,  and I feel nothing, because it's not my time to care anymore. It doesn't matter. It isn't...Read On

Old Pewter Can, 1862

In a tin can is a letter I penned, On the Tennessee River near Shiloh, While laying mortally wounded.  Shot by a Yankee in uniform of blue, In a peach orchard... 1862. As I cast my eyes to Heaven above, Waiting for the last twang of a harp,  I feel your breath upon my soul, Carrying me home to Old Dixie  And the pecan fields of home. And when the good Lord has roll call, I'll...Read On

It's Been Awhile

It's been awhile since you were here.  Hello. How're you doing.  I'm happy to see you. Happy. Yeah, you look good. Looking good my lady. Always looking good. Always did, always will. Such a choice woman. Pure perfection. To me. Special. We had a special thing going on. Remember that. Remember us.  We were special. Of course.  Yes, of course I still adore you. My own sweet one.

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
