What Is Love?

Learn to understand the word 'Love' before you say it to someone.

What is love? It's much more than a word Four letters long It's powerful in many forms It's often spoken By people in many languages But some still don't understand It's true meaning A fluttering heartbeat Those clammy hands A rush of blood inside Butterflies in your stomach Some believe it's desire A few think it's lust It's neither of those things It's much deeper It's a trust between...Read On

moon shine

the night sky sings a sad song.

I hide... every day. from hurt, from love, from myself. when my body longs most to feel your breath, to share your space, to be owned by you, I remind myself  why love cannot be, why joy is perilous,  why I will never be enough. the full moon breaks  into a million faceted pieces  and falls from my sky. .......Read On

Forever

You've been in my heart each day since we met. So many years ago that was and yet I still remember each day we spent together. I wish I'd known it wouldn't be forever. Searching your name on the world wide web, No trace of you anywhere, perhaps you've wed. I ask friends about you, they just say forget her; But what can I do? My love is forever. The age old traditions of bygone years...Read On

Odd Fellow

In my midlife boon without any remorse, all spruced up in my cock-corset ties, pillbox hat, blue menthol lyptus  and scented balls. Wishing it a clit with a concussion   and the heebie jeebies filling my tank, as I sparkled with bustle and long lashes decked out as a wench with highfalutin shoes. As my penis gets a spontaneous eruption, when the fans unbutton my pants ...Read On

The Great Asterisk

It wasn't but a lyrical, When I had but a thought unwritten, By the tides of the moon, I embraced you, Yet I still loomed, the great asterisk. A verse, a stanza, anything admitting, A comma of true, Wishing you to stay the course, Of this poet, a dark choice. When I was but ink in the well of the quill, Something for me to eye before I inked, I was but a lowly noun, a...Read On

White Knight

Even vagrants live by some golden rule That love makes one act like a fool Or that money isn't what makes the man I'm just a poor boy wearing a poetic heart On weathered sleeves unraveling apart And I just don't seem to give a damn My love for you is like no other What you certainly won't get from any ol' lover It's the kind you read about in fables I am your white knight with greying...Read On

Lament of a Man in Pain

A poem I wrote when I was between relationships, trying to decide how to handle the transition

Whatever I do, Wherever I go, Someone I love, or someone I know, Gets hurt, by me, so what can I say? When my every move, and my every way Is painful to Someone. I wish that I could be the good man, That people around me keep saying I am. I don't see how it could be that they see, What I can't see, a way that I can be. It's not who I am. Why should I try, to love anyone, When there is...Read On

Heaven Sapphire

Adonis awaiting your command mi-lady...

Beyond a mortal man impassioned far, At these voluptuous accents, he arose, Ethereal, flushed, and like a throbbing star, Seen 'mid the sapphire heaven's deep repose, Into her dream he melted, as the Rose  Blendeth its odor with the Violet -elixer sweet: Meantime the frost-wind blows Like a lover's quarrelled rage Against the windowpanes; MidKnights' Moon hath set Within your...Read On

Gone but not forgotten

Remembering a very special Lush friend

You were not the first to friend me but you were the first to friend me in your own special way Like a searchlight in the night You led me to safe harbor We laughed and shared some fun You asked that I be gentle For you I did comply I told you I would not judge We shared things that bared our souls Together we did connect As short a time as we had together I can tell you...Read On

Twin Flame

“Lovers don't finally meet somewhere, they're in each other all along” ~ Rumi

I wonder if you too recognised how effortlessly we breached the surface, burrowing into more intimate clutches as though we had always belonged. How we danced beneath a curious calm during the swift but gentle tensioning, finding comfort in the magnetism  that enraptured us – a balance of delicate forces to which we beckoned no resistance. As we strayed across the threshold we...Read On

Letting Go (Holding On)

The hardest part of love is letting go

I started to let go of you For I knew I couldn't hold on. You kept on walking away from me, Your stride was just too strong. I said goodbye to the times we shared And the memories we made. I watched you grow more distant... I watched our friendship fade. I wiped away my tears for you. I knew they would hurt you to see. I tried to keep a brave face on So that you wouldn't feel guilty. ...Read On

for a special person who knows who she is

A new year rolled around And tomorrow it’s time To send a little note; Maybe something in rhyme. That I love you, you know; You have known all the time. Do I dare to believe You’d be my Valentine? ...Read On

Messy Love

Love is a word that defies definition. It is more beautiful than even the most vivid imagination can envision, it is spontaneous, combustible and messy, very messy. Love is not limited by an elementary arrangement of four simple letters. The limitations only arise from our ability to feel the billions of elements that combine together to become one. The definition would have to...Read On

I wanna be

I wanna be the girl he's scared to lose. I wanna be the one he tells "I love you, baby" to. I wanna be his baby. I wanna be his best friend. I wanna be the one he loves. The one he can't live without. The one he can't walk away from knowing I'm mad at him. The one he can't fall asleep without my voice being the last one he hears. The one to always love him. I wanna be his cuddle buddy. I...Read On

A sad goodbye

With a broken heart Her tears run down her cheeks, Shocked, Devastated, How one moment in time Can change everything. She never imagined It would end this way. He was her ever after, Or so she thought. Cruel twists of fate Made it differently. She can’t do things half-way, Part time. If she can’t be dedicated, Give what He deserves, What He wants and needs, She can’t take...Read On

Love's last quatrain

Occasionally, even little pigs may recognise pearls amid their sty

I built a poem from Lego bricks Perfection! Not a hole to fix Each room I filled with emptiness Each plastic rhyme with hopelessness * Hey, lover! (who builds poems from sticks) I built a poem from Lego bricks He read, his face - a doleful mask - Proclaimed I had not met the task * 'To beat the wolves, my lover dear Do more than to the rules adhere I built a poem from...Read On

And I Wish

And I wish I had you here singing your melodious songs to me, Your sweet voice just echoes in the hollows of my mind, And I wish that I could feel your soft breath upon my skin, Teasing and caressing me at once, And I wish that you were here, Making tender love with me, And I wish that you were mine, In every way, But your voice is just a memory, That is playing in my mind. And I...Read On

Friend

A true friend is a gem.

What is a friend you ask. A friend is near, a friend is dear. They hold you while you cry, and never tell you lies. They're truth, love, and tenderness. They're firm, strong and tell you when you do wrong. They help, they care, they share, they're rare. They're a treasure, a gem, they are there till the end. They don't judge and when mad they don't budge. Good friends are hard to find,...Read On

Freedom

Voices accusing. Fingers pointing An unforgiving world of strangers The guilt and blame are crushing This world is my prison with no escape There is nowhere safe left to hide For you For me Loneliness is like a creature  From which I can't run Where I go it waits Where I hide it lurks In you is my hope found You light my darkness Define my purpose  Because of you ...Read On

Upon My Sleep

The midnight hour as I rest upon my sleep and you in cuddle of my embracing arms, soft breath of the swooning willows bough...  apple dumplings taste good even in dreams. As streams of kisses lay on my chest and your hands gently bask my stones, on fields of quilt my limbs sway... apple dumplings taste good even in dreams....Read On

Starr Crossed Lovers Whose Mood Turns to Doom

My poetic tribute to fatuous fate and infatuation.

Behold six pairs of doomed lovers, Slain by their own hands or by another. With poison, knife, serpent and lust. Ah! But whose marriage really went bust? Heloise and Abelard. Both were brilliant. He was unmanned but still proved resilient. Paris and Helen launched ships and war The greatestthe Bronze Age ever saw. Antony and Cleopatra: Westwed East. They had grand aspirations, to say...Read On

A Pawn No More

“Every pawn is a potential queen.” ~James Mason

I will play the pawn  For others no more. Never again be used  To settle a score. Make a lover jealous Or fill a void. Valued only for how I can be employed. So easily manipulated, Sacrificial and weak. Passive accomplice To the havoc they wreak. Yet, somehow survived To cross the board. The endgame nears, I’ve earned my reward. Promoted to queen, Most powerful piece. ...Read On

A Long Time Of...

Where once the breezes blew, The winds of times now ail, and new storms brew, Standing lonely hours of truth On bed of my lies, (mediocrity at best...) As your eyes of cat deceived me But I paid the price. Isn't that the way fools spin excuses And spots never fade, (maybe stripes...) Leaving the good of my got crying? On bed of my lies, In my new anointed life of deceit,...Read On

Nancy

The loss of a lover as they fall away...

Oh Nancy, won’t you tell me, Of the things that you see, In the land that you live in, That we call insanity. You speak of songs never sung, And ships which never sailed, And write to me from distant lands, In letters never mailed. You cry at night for the one, Who lost a love so dear, And say I am so far away, Although I sit right here. Oh Nancy won’t you...Read On

Lies

Why do you pretend to care? Your eyes are full of lies You swore you would never lie again Yet you broke your promise to me You put on a brave mask Thinking no one can see your true self But I know you’re secretly afraid Always trying to be someone you're not You pushed everyone away Now you sit there alone and scared Not a soul around you To listen to you cry ...Read On

I See Her

Inspired by today's trip

Loading up my camper Looking at my bed I see her Moving down the highway My mind now flowing free I see her Canyons attract my gaze Chaos combined with beauty I see her Mountains loom around me Mysteries hidden in them I see her Dark Clouds on the horizon Depth beyond my vision I see her Raindrops upon my windshield Reminding me her wetness I see her Wind blows...Read On

You are the conflict that tears me in two. You are my friend, and I love you.  I love you for your imaginative ways, Your tender displays and, well,  no particular thing. You know, if I could sing, I'd sing about you....Read On
