Winter's Stillness

Why weren't you my destiny?

She's stuck in winter's stillness, stalled at Christmas time. Fog wraps its wings around her and hugs her while she cries. The love she found, she'll never own.  The Christmas gift she craves.  Destined to be without her.  To another, his love, he gave. Another already wore his ring. She'd arrived late to the revelry. Seemed someone else was living her life.  Why couldn't he have been...Read On

Love's Possibilities

You never know what is hiding behind the next door

A journey we've begun That is loving and true  My heart in need of care  You then took the cue We were just good friends  You'd wipe away my tears  Unsure where this would lead  And now you've promised to calm my fears With my eyes tightly closed  I jumped and then fell  Taking a huge leap of faith Leaving behind my utter hell Now with my hand in yours You pull me from the dark  Safe,...Read On

Life's A Dance

the song may be over

Life is a dance  You search high and low for that forever love you read about  Then he comes out of nowhere and steals your heart from the word hello  You pray he is your destiny part of the grander plan Then suddenly you watch him walk away ,breaking your heart as he goes  Yet, you wouldn't regret a minute of the dance you shared for a brief minute in time  You learn from...Read On

Dancin' the Blues

Dancin’ the blues Is a complicated business; First, you focus on the rhythm, Then you try to feel How your partner moves, Fumbling to sway with his groove: Most of all, you strain to blend with All the glory of That music, In three or four pressurised minutes, When you concentrate intensely On all these elements.   If you can surrender To the beat, your partner, That music, ...Read On

Tender Heart, Keep Still…

my first poem...please be gentle Tender heart keep still You've been through a lot Of soul wrenching pain and heart rending spell. Torn, slashed, and tattered Seeking refuge was all that mattered Tried to look in all direction Hoping to find divine intervention. Then an angel in disguise Came along to your surprise A kind heart, so thoughtful Bring healing to your soul. Sweet words...Read On

US

Feel it ... Love

I walked through the garden And I looked for your hand  I felt it slowly in my palm  It warmed me and I was content It was love I had been waiting for  It was your love that found me  Two hearts uniting in ardor Beating together a life to explore Your strength surrounded me Our laughter could be heard  Two happier people you never did see It is love by definition of the word No longer...Read On

Perfection

the way you feel inside me is perfection

I watch your beloved and intense face and touch the edge of your mouth as you slowly slide your erect length into my longing. Breath ceases as a moan is pressed from my throat. All is perfect. , Of course, the earlier kisses, desperate and wild, were perfect. The laughing chase as we ran to the bed leaving a trail of clothes behind us was perfect, too....Read On

Quarry

Bulky, unwieldy Awkwardly arranged Plunked on the paper Like big clods of clay That is how words Appear now to be When I want to convey What you mean to me Needing to craft Nuances of thought Instead a Neanderthal Pounds with a rock Inadequate language Inartfully clubbed Unable to voice Prayerful facets of love Chunks great of speech Plunge hillside down When I seek precise beauty...Read On

Tempest

Upon the midnight, perilous ocean-deep, pour forth and set the world ablaze

A petal falls and comes to float Upon a lake of placid still. Like gentle sway of empty boat, Oblivious to early morning chill. Upon the surface it skims along, Mirrored reflection in tranquil glass. Deaf to melodious dawn chorus-song, A fleeting moment, come to pass. The wisps of cloud that streak the sky, A temperate blessing of heaven's grace. Glowing glorious, canvas upon high....Read On

Invisible Ink

I have invisible ink tattooed on me. I will no longer keep silent, I now share my secret. I'm a survivor and those who know Without me saying can tell perfectly. I don't look for pity, only salvation. I'm no longer ashamed to admit this. Each time I tell someone else I do not know, I become stronger, with every breath that I take. I was lost and alone and I lived in my own prison of...Read On

When he held her hand

They lived a happy life

When he held her hand, She was a young girl. They walked and talked, And often he'd take her for a twirl. When she became a young woman, He got down on one knee. He asked her to stay and become his wife, She smiled and kissed him, and they started their life. As husband and wife they lived their days, Raising the children, and giving them praise. Still he held her middle aged hand,...Read On

Words Can't Describe

My feelings defy description...but I'll try...

I tried to tell you how I feel, But the words just didn’t work. How can I express what you mean to me? If I were an artist, I’d paint you, With fine lines and bold color and great movement To illustrate your physical grandeur. If I were a musician, I’d sing you, With swelling crescendos and intricate chords and complicated harmonies To communicate your creative spirit. If I were...Read On

Choices

At some point she stopped listening When he would talk to her Displaying a delightful smile Through boredom thick as tar Wondering how she got here Become the walking dead Catching just the tail end And so she’d nod her head Feigning her compassion Planning what’s for lunch Playing with her earrings Glancing at her watch Inserting mental earbuds Blocking out his voice ...Read On

My Aching Soul

I am so full of love but tonight my soul aches. It is twisted and contorted, tied up in boy scout knots. My love for him is a force of nature. The moons of our galaxies causing a gravitational pull never meant to be understood. Holidays are dedicated to happy red childlike hearts. Country songs bellowing of broken hearts and dreams. But what about my aching soul? It is the...Read On

Hidden Inside

Even the pain we hide deep inside finds its way to the surface....

There are dark and hidden parts of me Parts I don't let even you see I have cracks and broken edges Memories I would love to set free Oftentimes the ones we trust Leave the most damage behind I try my best to box up the pain Tuck it deep in the back of my mind When you look in my eyes I wonder Do you see the fear I’m trying to hide Maybe If I can conceal it well enough You will see...Read On

One last time

Always be mine...

By your bed, I stand and stare, wondering if you’re aware. In my hands I hold a card, buying it had been so hard. Beneath your eyelids I see pulses, then awakening, fluttering lashes. You blink: one, two, three and now I know you see me. Your tongue pokes and licks along cracked, dried lips. You gaze up into my face a tiny smile now in place. A dry cough, then you speak ...Read On

Stained

Storm’s scent informs me that it is time to go. Drops and drips moisten torn places barely dried-out, dampened,  drenched from the prior encounter... encounters. Pressures graduate from drizzle to downpour. In its midst, I wait for the  you in me to  un-claim,  unbind from the right now exchange... exchanges. Forces subside to a recurrent rhythm.  Your omnipresence is a whet ...Read On

Be My Valentine

For Simplicity, My one. My only. Forever

I asked you to be mine Not just you heart nor simply your soul I wanted all of you, from your blond, tussled hair  To those cute little toes.  I wanted your love, your passion, and your devotion when all others who claimed to return those things failed you.  I wanted your trust. Your belief that I would stand by when all others fled. I wanted you to know I would not be like them. I...Read On

The Way I See It

In pain we scare, In pain we hide, In pain we cry, In pain we lie, In pain we fear. Enough of the scared, Enough of the hiding, Enough of the tears, Enough of the lies, Enough of the fears. When will it ever be enough? Take away the fears, Take away the need to hide, Take away the need to cry, Take away the need to lie. Take away the need to be full of fear.  Let...Read On

Blondie's Song

This one was just sort of for fun.

“Let’s ride,” she said, or rather said I And he lay down beside me, prick aimed at the sky My magnificent cuckold of destruction and death Draining my soul and stealing my breath. “Get on little girl!” I felt obliged to correct him Growling softly and sinking my teeth in Little perhaps but the girl had long fled Drowned in a shower of powder and lead. “Let’s ride,” he said,...Read On

What You Don't Know

When all that we have is my love...

You may not know   for I won’t tell just how much you've cast your spell   Stolen moments borrowed time shared jokes happy lines   Thoughts of you makes my heart race awake and alone I imagine your face   With just your presence makes me feel anew for all I want is a moment with you   Each word you sketch a perfect reflection who can blame those that steal your affection...Read On

Foundation

Foundation Going through the motions, with no ending in sight. One looks toward the heavens, in the hope for insight. The sun rays cast down, as the earth hesitates. It struggles, it breaks, Yes, ... even making mistakes. Wait, start over, holding the line. Achieving the outcome, that becomes one's in time. Remember to nourish, shelter and love. This is the foundation, for what you...Read On

Adrift

Misplaced in a waking world of silent dreams

The city burns down around my footsteps Consumed by the fires of inattention Discarded and forgotten  Like a gentle whisper upon a breeze Fluttering away like the cold ash of the morning after I pass through this place  Walking, hoping Dreaming A lost soul drifting on currents of concrete and glass Rudderless, amid the focused and determined Misplaced in a waking world of...Read On

no more

sometimes there is an end

your hands caress and pull, showing me the power  of my feral desire for you. I beg you to fuck me,  to burn me alive, to melt my boundary walls,  to make me the thing you would choose. as your body enters mine and your mouth takes  all there is of me, I feel my life drain away to be replaced  by some unknown numbness. oh, the pump will continue to beat  and a...Read On

Afterglow

She’s a rare bird, untamed and wild Who makes me smile With the intensity of a climax Fierce and raw and savage And strangely tender, too. Funny how freeing it is To be on the business end of a leash Proudly paraded around the park in pink panties. Oh, in a perfect world, Where judges were but wisps of cotton candy That would be my chosen place… A bird, (I said) but...Read On

Bruised Heart

Our Love stands strong ... Take your lies and move on

A bruised heart, a tear falls I sit in silence looking at the walls Thinking how deep my love is for you How all of our promises were given and true A single word, a sentence so vile All were delivered in guile Why must one hurt another's heart It was done to try to tear us apart Through the lies and deception I see It was done out of hatred we both agree A jealous path never ends...Read On

The Cusp of a Breaking

Prophetic...

In love - feral, unbroken, and unaccustomed to your ways of thinking, of loving, of being, my resolve is suffocating - drowning in a sea of assumptions. Assumptions, sorted presumptions have a way of distorting what is true. What may be true turns into misconceptions, misapprehensions, and misinterpretations. Ultimately, Miss-Understanding stands strong at the threshold. ...Read On
