Back to the Violet Coast

A poem to Melissa, the Honeybee Nymph (and my writing-partner in the UK)

The nine muses sing 'round the fall faerie ring While we dance in a circle of stone And the embers glow red as we dance with the dead By the sidhes where the faeries now moan Our arms slowly raise to the Goddess we praise While the passions we share rise anew And my lover is filled with the nectar I spilled 'Pon her lips as she kissed at my dew The smoke from the fire where...Read On

At your feet

Deepening love

There is a very thin line between hope and despair. Yearning is a feeling with which I have become very familiar.  Everyday tasks are infused with thoughts of you.  Questions are asked of myself, no answers come forth.  It is all so hopeless, but then a sentence, Words gifted from the ether Bring you into my presence, and all is well.  It's imagined love, but what romantic...Read On

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

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

A new year

A journey is easier when not taken alone...

 A new year starting, Blank slates laying ahead. Hearts full of hope, Dreams of what may come, Worried of turmoil to be faced. Like all others, She knows not what will pass, Yet she meets the new year With smiles, Knowing she doesn’t meet it alone. Facing the unknown Can be exciting or scary. She feels at peace, With her love by her side, She can deal with anything. All...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

Lock And Key

There's never been a start or conclusion, only a lock waiting for a key, whether buried beneath earth as hard as frozen clay, or as unknown shapes spiraling just out of reach. You are already as familiar as the cells coursing through the rivers inside me that cannot end until we truly begin, until we chart the specific turnings. A pulse beating softly against mine, morning's first hints...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

In The Dark

A knock on the door, as soft and hesitant  as your first touch winters ago,  when I was falling apart,  when my secrets could keep me safe from what comes after we turn the lights off. It would be wrong to give so much of myself away,  just to summon the heat  of you so near again. To take all I am in the dark  and hope it's enough to not cast a shadow  over what we were supposed to be. ...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

Submerged

I've always wanted to know how to reach you, to forget each divide within us that is a dark ocean populated with dangerous new species, depths we may not know how to chart alone. I don't want to stay on the surface anymore, where rippling reflections are torn by tides colliding and forgetting how to merge, where waves pull us apart before a sound can leave our lips. I've been to blame all...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

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

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
