The Venetian Map

"...for she had eyes and chose me." ~ William Shakespeare

You'll sail through my blood,  the first time I've ever  been so entirely consumed,  an exotic element to you as  you pulled me away from monsters  As if the telling of those tales  spilled war's memory from me.  There will be no solidarity to me, love,  no origin without cracks or foreign blood  coating my restless blade.  But you come to me without pretension,  with ceaseless devotion...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. Setting...Read On

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

Fallen Angel

Trapped within a terrible dream I dream my pet lay not by my side My thoughts race with a chilling scream The void she fills won't be denied Heaven, hell and purgatory And every realm in between I scour...unforgivingly With raging fury never seen With my every step, the ground does quake Both gods and demons dare not test Why a mortal man, is in their wake I'm a man possessed, by his quest ...Read On

Relapse

Difficult times should embrace hope instead of fostering hopelessness

Lying By myself To myself Alone in our bed Lying Dying Deep in my head Dreams By you Of us Unspoken word Cherished Perished Only silence heard Addicted By you To you Fuck without touch Addicted Conflicted Love you too much Wasted By you For me Pray for relapse Lusting Thrusting Someday perhaps...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

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

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?

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

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

come with, my love

faded love gets a fresh start

28 below freezing Winter winds howling Whistling through naked trees Spindrifts of powder dance 'cross empty streets Gray moon reflections Echo off blankets of white There's no one in sight 'Tis the beautiful season of death 'Twas full of color and life Just a few months before Blankets of green Growing strong by the sun Forest critters gathering Winged creatures singing Trees...Read On

He sits and waits

An old man remembering young love...

He sits and waits In the doorway of the cafe Shaded from the heat of the summer sun. His chin hunched upon his stick, He sits and waits And he looks, Watching beautiful young couples passing by, Arm in arm, In suits, and loose ties, shirts grimed with sweat And tiny patterned summer dresses, Slung over beautifully curved frames. He smiles a wry smile, ...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

i want you

I want you, No I need you, All I do,  Is think of you. I want to be there for you. I want to care for you, I am ready, To be with only you. I want to make this work, I will do everything in my power, To make you happy, In every hour. I will give you my heart, Please choose me, And give my lonely heart, Some company....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

Warrior Angel

A classic struggle of love and belief

For every fallen angel Every one that is weak For every angel darkened There are a thousand or more That are tasked with mercy Each brimming with hope You are the enemy A trafficker of hate You are toxic evil Causing angels to weep A demon in disguise That seduces the weak You are not their love Nor are you their fate And you do not know me We have not yet met I am the fool that Treads...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

Happiness

Love isn’t always pretty Or polite, Nor is it easy. Yet within the depth Of the very soul There is nothing we crave more, Need to be fulfilled. Lust is a force of life, Of nature, In essence the survival Of humankind. Desires drive us, Give new energy, A release of power. Two halves of a whole. As love and lust meet, We find our peace. Two pieces of individual strength, ...Read On
