Repose

Together, in our own way

My back against you Fitting there Your hand curves to my breast We breathe together in a bed Your head against me rests We try to do this When we can It’s going on for years And then we live our separate lives But neither seems to care This is us This is our way Routine within routine We meet, we kiss, we love, then sleep We pledge ourselves, then leave I think this has us satisfied...Read On

Night and Day

Thoughts of an absent lover

This is a first effort at publication. Please be gentle. It is twilight – that wonderful time between day and night That the French call l’heure bleue – the blue hour. As I look out over the water, the infinite horizon where it meets the sky I wonder if you are looking at the sky now thinking of me As I am thinking of you and remembering Your kisses and caresses, your...Read On

The Teardrop

Tears are not always a focal point of a deep loss

This is my last and final farewell   The teardrop that threatens to well up in my eye The audible tremble and length of my sigh I cry out with the pain held tight inside my soul The loneliness of love lost, taking its toll   The teardrop that washes softly across my blurred vision Remembering the cutting a part of my heart with precision It now lies before me in thousands of tiny...Read On

Passionately Loving You

When you find THE one

    Passion, for passion's sake In and of itself Can be great   But Passion when There is also love Seems to elevate that feeling So very high above   To add new meaning and depth Make it seem more A passionate love like that Will never seem a chore   It can see all consuming Yet perfect in its ease Two people loving each other As passionately as they please   From...Read On

Five More Minutes

Wish I had me a pause button - Scotty McCreery

We all want five more minutes We want a pause button for the good stuff Eight years old catching fireflies Mama yells time to come in We yell five more minutes Sixteen years old on your front porch Kissing good night Your Dad flipping the light switch Interrupting our good night kissing We say five more minutes Eighteen years old last home football game We wanted five more minutes ...Read On

Broken

Sometimes you need to stop loving...

Dear heart, I beg you, please stop beating, How can I love him, after cheating?  Please forget his tender kiss, Where once was love, please abyss? Dear heart, forget him – he caused this aching, So fragile now - the nights of waking. He was not true, he chose to share, All my love – he did not care. Dear heart, I know you’ll never heal, No other man allowed to steal. Never will you...Read On

A Birthday poem to a special friend

My way of saying Happy Birthday

I don’t want to make this sound like mush  But you’re really one of the best on Lush You raise me up when I am feeling down  Ensuring smiles replace my clouded frown  You write like an Angel, scribing your lines  Your words so clear, silken poetry, so fine  Your heart lifts mine with well-chosen words  Your stanzas sing like a chorus of birds  You’re always funny and you’re...Read On

My Left Hand

For all the times it felt like a brand, Laying there across my hand. Shouting don’t ask, don’t try, This woman is not free to buy. Not that this was always planned, But it still lays there on my left hand. Stopping me from running by, And losing my tough guy. For this reason I abide, But refuse to become a Stepford bride. Standing at the altar like a frump, Hiding my almighty bump....Read On

Chasing The Starlight

I was like chasing the starlight Looking for the love that is right I’ve fallen in love not once but thrice Somehow it brought tears to my eyes Scarred and scared to open up the door But falling in love is what I am looking for I cherish the feel of being loved Make my heart soar like a dove Simple acts of thoughtfulness Words laced with sweetness Coupled with sensuality...Read On

Miracles

Many miracles of all sizes surround us They happen to ordinary people everyday, We don't realize it when we see them Each miracle appears in a different way. It may be the frail old lady in line Waiting at the local grocery store, Whose doctors just found a cure For a disease they never saw before. Or remember the ragged homeless man, Who begs for money on the street? He is newly...Read On

Feisty Mouth

I've got a feisty mouth.

Does my feisty mouth defy you? Does it turn you on? Does it make you want to gag me When I won’t follow along? Does my feisty mouth enrage you? Does it make you curse and plead? Does it make you want to spank me As I am bent over your knee? Does my feisty mouth tease you? Does it make you throbbing hard? Does it take you to the brink and back And leave you wanting more? Does...Read On

Doubt

Tell me; don't tell me

Pecking, pecking At my brain She has a smile so pretty - Tapping, tapping In my head I have to know: "who is she?" Searching, searching On the net - What is their connection? Scrolling, scrolling Through the blogs Tortured by the tension - Looking, looking Instagram Is that his arm around her? Show me, show me Facebook friends The answer in a post there - Say it, say it Pinterest page What...Read On

Fragmented, Too

Alone, empty. Apart, void. Separately, fragmented. Individually, nothing. Not thinking, not feeling, not caring, just...existing. Existing, yes, but in the basest sense — not truly being. Together, we are no longer empty, void, fragmented. We are replete. We are meaningful. We are whole. Together, we are everything. Together, we are....Read On

Cinders

Passion, Burning, Fervid flame, Hungry, Thirsty, Knows no name.   Life with zeal, Hear the bells peal, Dedication, Devotion, Everything real.   Will nights of lust, Chaotic desire, Wondering, Waiting, Fuelling the fire.   Nights of anguish, See it languish, Lost among the flames, Burnt too far, Cinders.   Angry shouts, What went wrong? Tell me, Can we mend this song?...Read On

What Is Necessary

There are only a few things necessary to life.

It is not always necessary  To be in the presence  Of the one that makes your heart beat faster  The one that ignites your passions  Defines your needs  Whose touch remains  Long after his body has departed It is nice to know that he simply exists  Is somewhere  That in a limitless world  Your One has come forward  And places himself in your path  Meets your eyes  Does not blink ...Read On

Please beg me

My fingers touch your hair As you kneel down In front of me Obedient, tamed, fragile Like a lamb Waiting for me For inspection For discipline I wonder tomorrow If people in your office Will notice The bruise on your wrist Left by the rope Your swollen lips Caused by my Sucking, biting, thrusting And your hoarse voice From all the Moaning, screaming, whimpering Tonight Am I too harsh? Is...Read On

Falling

A passionate addiction will always have risks...

Our love This connection Is a free fall Something We both want And need But Is it worth The risk Maybe Our chutes Have Already deployed The decision Has been made And We are floating Back down To earth Safely And no harm Will come to us Maybe But we wonder Will we land In an open field This once Escaping injury Deciding Never to Go up To soar again But we know Life Has No guarantees So Do...Read On

The Exquisite Consequence of Desire

Led by desire

Your smile always shatters me A million shards of longing The unbearable desolation Of your absence soon forgotten   Vanished to your incandescent kiss Oh! How you fill this emptiness Your beauty is dark sorcery Let loose chaotic ecstasy   The devil’s smoulder in your eyes Unspoken invitation Your touch ignites exquisite ache Silk whispers, captivation   Tonight you are...Read On

Better...Because of You

May everyone have someone who is an inspiration, be that person for someone else, or both.

Because of you, in so many ways — I am stronger... I am better. No longer am I weak and tethered; Your acquaintance released my fetter. ~ Your quick wit makes me laugh; ...I am happier. Your unfailing support bolsters me; ...I am more confident. Your gentle advice nudges me; ...I am more productive. Your unerring perception enlightens me; ...I am healthier. Your...Read On

How I Need Thee

Tell me, Am I to be compared to a flower  On a summers Morn. Laid down in the softness of grassy banks, My petals, slowly unfold As your stalk, grows strong and demanding. Glimpses of each other Across inches of space Accompanied by a hint of desperation, And a burning fire within. This feeling,  of unfettered lust, Falls on stony ground  Amidst the torturous numbness of separation. I want...Read On

Chasm

You sit across the table Not looking at my hand Which rests upon formica Revealing upturned palm Sweated glass of water Drip-stained coffee cups Congealed fat drops on a dish Witness us discuss our love Your words amid the clatter Of cheap silverware and plates Fall in with that background In an undistinguished way I see you catch the server's eye A check in tray arrives You reach into...Read On

From Alan

A poem for a Lost Friend

"Write what you know you think you feel, write just for yourself.  Write the way you learned from me, and write for everyone else.  Sometimes they will love it, most often they will not...  Worry about that later, but for now just give it your best shot.    Poetry's a puzzle and we find our only way  To try to say the things we often fail to really say...  If I have taught you...Read On

Just Imagining

Imagining US

Just imagining the sound of your voice makes my heart beat faster. Just imagining the thought of your breath on my neck sends shivers up and down my body. Just imagining the thought of being in your arms around me weakens me at my knees. Just imagining the meeting of our lips for a passionate kiss gives me goosebumps. Just imagining your hands caressing my body does...Read On

'Til The End Of Time

Love is out there

On a warm summer morning You came into my life Your words were well chosen So as not to cut me like a knife You gave me sweet praises And words of advice You asked if we could meet  If I thought it nice You told me I charmed you That I caught your eye's delight Never did I think it was More than just your plight I played with my words And gave them double meaning You took on...Read On

Then There Was You

Rethinking what is meant to be

I never believed in fate That anything might be preordained Meant to be I am full of contradictions Both rational and romantic Even spiritual sometimes But not in a religious sense My spiritual experiences were The result of beauty The symphony, paintings, words The golden light of Tuscany Paris at dusk Those were my transcendental moments But then there was you ...Read On

The Web

Here between the great false dawn of the reflected city From our kitchen window—Friday night— And the weedy dark of weekend’s oasis; Here, our cool-cocktailed nights, between The small truss of parenthetical sleep Slept, naps napped, love made; Here, within the grotto, the inlet, the sheltered rock ledge Of an unanswered phone or your penciled list; Here against swimming bits of television...Read On

His Hands

Let me tell you the truth Give me your hands The answer lies in my heart How you've touched my life Just how special you are What my heart wants to say It does matter who holds me It is your hands that touch The strings of my heart Take me in your arms Undress me slowly Touch me gently Glide all over me Teasing me All I can do is giggle When we make love It...Read On

My Latin Princess

To my muse who inspired me to once again dip my pen into the well

My lovely Latin Princess,  from my dreams you visit me.  With grace and flowing eloquence   your verse has set me free.   My soul was filled with emptiness   deep as space could ever be.  Until I heard your whispered words   come from across the Sea.   Your classic poise and beauty   were a balm to my cold eyes.  Such perfect breasts, slender hips   and inviting golden thighs.  ...Read On

Song of Weeping

I stand looking at the soft, breathing sea. The breeze feels like your hands on me, warm and loving. Then you are there. Your body like heaven to my senses. Your lips on the nape of my neck. Your heart flowing over me in waves that match the rhythm of the sea. My body calls to you as you suddenly retreat.... teasing.... tempting..... My heart longs to chase...Read On

Your Love

For you Bill, because you have restored me.

You found me hurting, alone and afraid My life had gone wrong, was all that I said. You wrapped me up tightly, in your arms so strong You made me feel safe, and made me belong. I told you of all the bad things I had done You held none against me, not a single one. You lifted my chin and made me smile once more On the pain of my past we closed the door. The birds sing again and...Read On
