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

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?

The Soldier and the Lady

a reworked traditional tale, or song for Christmas...a time for love x

Beneath a spreading Christmas tree, A little soldier stood, And the little soldier kept watch from, The turrets made of wood. And as the children played around, The spreading Christmas tree, The little soldier kept watch, As still as he could be. And far across the room, One little child took hold, Of a little dancing lady, All dressed in clothes of gold. When the clock...Read On

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

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

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

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

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

Moths to Flames

Why are moths led by flames, eternally drawn in to burn?

Entranced by the beauty of the fiery flicker. Moths to flames drawn to burn, but why? Mind ensnared and heart beats quicker  leads the moths to dance and die. Never understood what was the draw, how or why such a course was flown. What formed such a fatal flaw, the moth's fate already known. Until the day I met my flame and found a way to understand, when her voice called my name ...Read On

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

Come

One last dance to hiold you close.

Come dance with me a final time; I'll dance you up to heaven's door. We'll waltz around the moon and back and tip toe o'er the stars that soar. The lightening will enhance our steps as thunder rolls to set the beat. The Milky Way will be our guide while gentle breezes lift our feet. Come dance with me, I'll hold you tight and never ever let you fall. One last embrace, one final kiss, to...Read On

It Could Be Sweeter

I'll keep your touch like a secret sewn just beneath the skin, so when you run away, I don't have to be quite ready to go let you go. And I wish it could be sweeter, the taste of your kiss and breathing you in, I wish it didn't hurt us to be closer than this. I was too passive to chase and claim with the same raw force you could so easily sweep me away with, the force that others...Read On

Valley Of Hallelujahs

It wasn't but a raindrop but to me it was a tear As I felt the ebb tide of your breath slip away  In dreams I cried and your dying eyes sighed With a last kiss I prayed silently  In memories of moments ago Then the heavens caroled a love psalm blue  Songs sung true and songs of you  Beneath grey clouds the angels crooned And then your halo glowed like a tiara  Resting upon your golden hair...Read On

Evidence

There's evidence left behind, I wish there was more that I could hold on to. A memory's surge is sweet, flashing with intimate stills that only you and I know exist, but sometimes recollection isn't enough. I've already curated what I can. Your smile as I opened the door, the intensity shimmering in your eyes when you began to unfold before me, the warmth that hung in the air after,...Read On

When I Stayed

Nothing seems to stir outside tonight, amplifying the stillness we share, your head cradled in my arm's crook, hairs slightly tickling with each breath. This is when I'd usually leave, gather clothes from the floor's pile that are tangled in all the ways we just were together. I would usually move like a thief throughout the dark house, noting how our possessions would mesh together...Read On

Love Letters

Once long ago, I wrote many many letters, a journal, and now... I reminise on the foolishness of it

My dear love, my beautiful destiny: Today I want to imagine a new day, no matter if it is with a beautiful blue sky and bright sunshine, or delicate gray clouds with raindrops born of them... but I imagine that all day with me you are. Today upon waking, you provoke in me a smile, remind me of what we have, as I think of you in every little thought of the day and every tiny moment...Read On

Silence

The sound of silence...

The silence of your voice is deafening Its absence deeply felt is extreme Your thoughts are a jumbled mess I cannot decipher what you mean The haunted look within your eyes Fills me with a profound ache Your body shaking and the copious tears Are often more than I can take Your obvious dejected posture So heartbreaking to see I really wish that you would Unburden yourself to me ...Read On

Mountain Man

For my wonderful

Like a wild river, Need and desire rage through his veins. Rushing, demanding and powerful, Endlessly seeking the great wide open. Like the forest trees, He dominates his environment, Tall and strong,  Protecting the small. Like the wind, Free, a force of nature. A powerful and fierce gust,  Or a warm breeze to comfort. Like the mountains, Wise, with endless secrets. Peaks...Read On

Not Real Love

More brain dribble

I crept in where you lay I just wanted to play On this sunny winter day You know I won’t stay It seems that I can’t Listen to you rant I sigh as you pant I listen to you chant I discovered something new I care more for you No matter what I do My love always turns blue It’s true You knew I’m not for you Yet you play along Singing my love song Telling me I am strong Your lies are wrong ...Read On

Our Love

You know my every secret, The darkness of my past. More than any other, Yet still you held me fast. You told me everything, But I loved you still. Nothing in your life, Could stop the love I feel. All the little kinks, And all the crazy bends.  We talked and talked, Became the best of friends. I shared my life, You shared yours. Families came next, They became ours. There were...Read On

Obsession

obsessing over his girl

She gave me a look A look that can melt anyone A soft and a seductive look with the eyes gleaming, Where one can see the realm of the universe, A look one can be so obsessed with The red lips, soft as cherries And opened so little Awaiting to be tasted Eyes so deep and cheeks so chubby, Where one can get lost with And never care for a home. I don't know what's there in her That I'm so...Read On

Remember

Written for a very dear friend and her memories

You belong to another Yet you shared yourself with me Our brief moment in time together Set me on a path of self-discovery For the first time in my life I finally felt unchained, set free To simply enjoy things To learn how to be me You somehow brought me out Of my self-imposed shell Now I honestly look forward To getting to know myself well Our brief moment in time together...Read On

Lost

Today I sit here  watching the rainfall  the soft pitta patta  of the raindrops  hitting the ground,  match the tears  that run down my face. Remembering the moments  we shared that made me  feel so special  the softly whispered words  the gentle kisses and hugs  you gave, when you sensed  I was feeling nervous  which made me feel so safe. Now I sit here  trying to make sense  of what...Read On
