So Much More

So much more lives in me than you'll ever know of,  even though you once drew so close to me,  whispering that I only know how to  look at the outside of things. But, when we're here as tangled resting skin,  you always seem to be just out of reach. My fingertips navigate every inch of skin  and know  these curves and valleys  do not belong to a stranger. Maybe that's what hurts...Read On

You Were Here

You were here, You were locked between my legs. Now spring has turned to fall, But the memory remains. My lips were swollen from your kiss, Stained from all our love, Now my lips are left to reminisce The sweetness of your thrusts. Making love out by the sea, How long ago it seems That you drove one thousand miles To love me in the spring. The rain drizzled on your face, ...Read On

Trembling Bridges

Into misty swirling drifts of doubting  creep the feeble fears that feed regrets remorselessly until the dawning. Droplets of lovelorn dread bedew your flesh while the shadows cover your vision of what might have been but is no more. Is there no pathway to regaining your bearings and rebuilding  the mansion of memorable embraces once found but now unredeemed  since the shade crept in. ...Read On

Free Falling

Free falling, Down through the air, Worry is nothing, I live without a care. I know your arms, Will catch me when I fall, Make my landing safe, Your love will hold me. Your sweet cushion, Your gentle embrace, I'm your only mission, The love shows on your face. No playing safe, We don't need to, All anyone needs is to see, That for you I was meant to be. I will fall...Read On

Before a Marriage Proposal

Thoughts before asking her to be my wife...

It was warm today in our house by the sea, the smell of chili, bread rising by the fire. Outside, the wind was howling. Birds shivered on the wire and a few leaves dangled against the coming storm before falling to the piles of death around us. Beside me, you were slicing broccoli and did not see me take a breath and step away with a carrot in my hand and go to...Read On

Enlightened By You

I am having trouble Getting the words To come out right. To come out right In a way that truly Expresses my thoughts. Expresses my thoughts On how much you have Enriched my world. Enriched my world By opening doorways and Allowing me to explore. Allowing me to explore New experiences and dreams In this great big world. So with all my heart, With every inch of my being I devote myself...Read On

Gone Alone

It happens too often

Something happened today, Strange in every way, You up and left, You’ve gone away, Again today. What did I say? Why didn’t you stay? Was it all pretend? No beginning or end, I should have known, You weren’t my friend, You weren’t anything then. Who are you? What did I do? Will I ever find out? What filled you with doubt? Did you know all along, What this is about? Imaginary clout. ...Read On

Of Reds and Browns

In Autumn days, of red and browns,  My dear maiden of dreams, I reach, With dried corn stalks and gourds  And acorns on the ground. Of jack-o'-lanterns smiling,  Laying dormant until Spring  And nutmeg kisses you give to me, Sweet jasmine scent in your hair. Soft breezes whispering poetic love, As wind-songs blow in the air, Joyful jubilation and sensual wiles, Beneath the...Read On

Music, Dance and Spices

My life is full, Wondrous and bright. And I am thankful For it all-- Friends, Lovers, Family, Sisters, Brothers, Big and small, Old and young. But most of all I am thankful for you. You guide me, Protect me, Love me, Cherish me, And always feed My lustful desires. Now I sit here Thinking, dreaming, hoping To be the bright spark In your day, Your want, Your need, Your desire. Together we...Read On

This Boy and this Girl

The thrill of strangers, falling in love...

This boy (and this girl) Are in the first Flush of love. His heart Beating hard To hold her hand (in his.) (This boy) and this girl Are in the first throes Of desire, Walking together on the beach, And listening to the waves Crashing, calling out to one another, Love Love Love. (This boy) and (this girl) Are in the first expression of passion, Craving the saline tang Of each other's...Read On

Presence

The light your presence made pulls away from my heart, lingering inside and swelling for years, the spaces between promises growing like rings loosening from our fingers. This ghost knows me well, so please do not reach for me anymore, the trails I've made are not yours, your steps only make tremors when walking along darkened roads. In the distance there are still glimpses at the edges,...Read On

There, Not There

Walking down a long hallway, Glancing furtively about, Feeling the loss, She is gone. Floorboards creaking with each step, Rooms empty and dusty, Furnishings missing, She is gone. Crying out to the corners of the house, Echoing in the dim light, Drifting dust motes, She is gone. Twilight is coming quickly now, Darkness is leaking in, Eyes are searching, She is gone. Sleeping in tangled...Read On

Together

She walks her life through light and shadow, Night and day, With His warm whisper in her mind, Her heart.  As dawn breaks, He is there, Greeting her, in her thoughts, Putting a smile on her face,  Her body on fire, Knowing she is His,  That they will talk later. Her good days get brighter, Her darker days vanish When she spends time with Him. Laughter and joy fills her Along with a...Read On

Left

being left what happens

What happens when the heart is left Behind beating All alone What happens when the loving ends The hurting starts And the dream is lost What happens when the words stop The silence begins And the pain sets in What happens when the love ends And the road ahead of you just stops What happens when you are left...Read On

Cliff Diving

Words cannot do justice to how you make me feel, It is like going cliff diving, You make me nervous, Maybe a little scared, Not in a bad way, Just a tiny bit apprehensive, But then you take me, I just jump, And I am in your arms, Like the wind, Cutting through the air, Just sailing on through, Adrenaline coursing through me, Falling into the deep blue waters, Ready to feel...Read On

Epicenter

It was something so very simple, only complicated by memory's kindling when we sought out what torches would light the way back to each other. So I'll tell you what I remember, no sugary wistful longing because I'm already too tempted to mythologize you and I into something else. You'd rather know I was clutching the raw epicenter of this instead. I remember your hand reaching out,...Read On

Fragile and Broken

I never asked

I never asked for anything, I really didn't want you to know. Didn't want a commitment, Wanted to take it real slow. Just wanted for us to talk, To share and to learn. To become friends we could count on Before anything else would burn. I didnt want a week or a month, No, I wanted so much more. Wanted to build something to last. Something we could hold on to. Wasn't...Read On

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.

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

Wildfire Eyes

Your wildfire eyes, Your burning desire, Everything I see through them, Your want, Your need, Your lust. Your wildfire eyes, Hold your dreams and your nightmares, The bad fuelling you as much as the good, Your pride, Your power, Your force. Your wildfire eyes, Always burning, Always smouldering, It is those with which I have fallen in love, They are the gateway to your soul, ...Read On

Castle in the clouds

“Everything you can imagine is real.” - Pablo Picasso

At her castle in the clouds She hides when life gets hard. There no sadness exists And he awaits her, always, His arms open to hold her close. When chilled to the bone Curled on his lap her warmth returns. Mad, passionate love they make, Consumed by each other’s bodies, Desire and lust driving them Into endless moments of ecstasy. Like a skilled musician ...Read On

young lovers hand in hand...and time...

Sonnet 4 Hand in hand, young lovers walk Down to where the stream doth run, Mouth to mouth, young lovers talk Of love, and watch the setting sun Oh, to be young star crossed lovers, Oh, two be entwined as one, But deep beneath the earth that covers Love that is love, long since gone Hand in hand, young lovers walk Down, to where the stream doth flow, Time...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

Kiss Me Awhile

Kiss me awhile if you please And evermore the moments to pass Until Heaven's Gate In moments alone my mind roams Of past summers and sweet Merlot The love we share Blow softly the whispering words In pretend it's not a dream Caressing my soul As we dance on tomorrow's day Over beyond our sunset's The chariot arrives to take us home Kiss me awhile if you please...Read On

4 AM. Whiskey Blues

Its dark, 4 AM, and I am drinking again. Trying to wipe her away. Sitting in the gloomy shadows, Not a sound to be heard, but the memories of her, tick around in my head, like some movie playing on repeat. Nothing seems to erase her from me, her laugh, her smile, her words. Another day - another drink. These tears they pour out right. She's been off and running. Doesn't seem she cares...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
