Treaty of Taonga

Because the dance of words can be as erotic as sex itself..

And I rage for Tino Rangitiratanga How strange it is that I remember a line I read so very long ago. "Bees in Mykanos hum in a minor chord" And I am still here in this unsteady place of ebony water and bull kelp. From where I stand with spine to rope, I catch her in the act. Head tossed to a throaty warble- eyes closed- Undisturbed by silence or squall, undisturbed by the...Read On

Pieces of We

Un-pretty little pieces.

Pieces of We I hold your heart in my hands, and it is my own. A broken thing, fragmented and beautiful. A fiercely delicate, dangerously sharp work of art. It is an exquisite glass sculpture. A rich jewel of life and goodness and truth. It has been dropped and stepped on until it's all jagged edges and wicked angles and shards of sweetest, painful love. It is my own heart of...Read On

Word Songs

When the quill sings my word songs, And the heavens bless me, night long... Whispers of ghost I have toast righteously As the verses define me in slightly undress. With raw nakedness of my poetry, I wish you my fond adieu, And may you walk in my shoe, Feeling steps of raw emotion. ...Read On

The kiss

Why so scared? Why so meek? Why so shy? Why so weak?

A small fleeting glance, a tentative peek, A tell-tale glow appeared on her cheek. She endeavoured to act coolly, to be super calm, To wipe off the moisture that had formed on her palm. But her cover was blown; she knew that he’d seen her, Her redness increased; the blushing got deeper. Why so scared? Why so meek? Why so shy? Why so weak? Her hand touched her face; she chewed on her lip,...Read On

Trinket

These are the trinkets that remind me of you, These are the small things that pull me through, For you there is nothing that I wouldn't do, What I'd do without you, well I have no clue. That picture in that frame over there, I remember that night when we lived without a care, If I move it from the wall it looks bare, Just please know my heart you share. The simple necklace on the...Read On

For A Moment

for K

Let me love you for a moment, For an hour, for a night For all time. Forget everything else, It's just you and I In this moment. Please let me have this With you. Let me be yours and you Be mine just for right now. I won't tell anyone, This will be our secret. Let me love you The only way I know how. Let me love you, Just for one moment. Accept it, cherish it. ...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

Seasons

The snow has stopped falling, though my heart remains cold. The day you went away, the tears I cried Flowed like tiny rivers down my cheeks, Like icicles, impaling my heart. I reminded you of someone you once knew, that hurt you deeply, forever changing your future. The seasons change, one blending to the next. I found beauty in your soul, that I didn't want to let go. I loved you, offered...Read On

Malice

Sometimes old haunts come back for more....

I bought into a lie because I needed to believe, Everyone needs a reason to go on,  Something more than just an unknown unproven God. The truth is, you're just the ghost of a girl I buried a year ago,  I tried so hard but in the end, Like in the song, It doesn't even matter. I am feeling strangely numb,  Couldn't find it in me to love what wasn't real,  So when you walked right out...Read On

Thoughts of You

Sunshine warms my tummy I'm lying on my back Robin's singin 'bout blurred lines Dogs are chasing cats And always you are on my mind My ever lovin' man Warms me like the sun that shines Since winter days when we began You, my tree, so tall and proud Protect me from the forces When the rains fall from the clouds When tears flow like river courses You, my rock, so solid in...Read On

Beautiful girl of mine in the palm of my hand twinkle in my eye Sir, my love my Master Come to me to my darkness be my captive Captive I am willingly Come My red rose as the blood in my veins boils I want and crave you as moon wants the distant sun My darlin' if you hunger for my power my manliness my strength be mine again and again I come to you as...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

Write a love song

You went away

On the radio each day Since you went away The songs are about you Just you, And they leave me blue. Those tunes and words We once shared and loved Now haunt me Only me, Because you’re free. After all the sweet lines The wind and strings The times we held hands Beguiled by the bands, Why leave for different lands? Like a bird on the wing You left to do your thing...Read On

Stained

Storm’s scent informs me that it is time to go. Drops and drips moisten torn places barely dried-out, dampened,  drenched from the prior encounter... encounters. Pressures graduate from drizzle to downpour. In its midst, I wait for the  you in me to  un-claim,  unbind from the right now exchange... exchanges. Forces subside to a recurrent rhythm.  Your omnipresence is a whet ...Read On

Love By Keystrokes

Romance by chance

Our love consists of keystrokes  From our computers or iPads You're the most amazing bloke These feelings make me feel glad Years now we're together In our computer thing We're each other's cyber lover So many emotions this brings Yet we've never met Only shared photographs Feelings of happiness and no regret We share tears and lots of laughs Sometimes there're fights Mostly days...Read On

Another Sonnet for my Cyber Lover

Thoughts while looking at the moon

Some nights when looking at the lovely moon and I am here so far away from you, I close my eyes and shove aside all gloom and wonder if, like me, you’re looking too. I think about your eyes and what you see and how at times like this we seem to touch. And though I wish that you were touching me, and how I want you in my arms so much. Who knows if we will ever meet each other? ...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

Snowflakes

Snowflakes in our hair, Teardrops in our eyes; My hands on her waist, her lips on mine We smile, we talk holding hands later; the moon shows up, in this dreamy theater holding hands we walk, not bothering staring people; this is all I want, this is all I...Read On

If this isnt love?

If this isn’t love then, tell me why I’ve lost the twinkle in my eye If this isn’t love then, why do I miss the beauty that lingers in your kiss? If this isn’t love and I’m not stuck, why in heaven cant I wake up? If this isn’t love and I’m ok, why won’t the shadows drift away? You’ve moved on but I am stuck, I’ve been abandoned by Lady Luck I think of nothing but your face, the rest...Read On

Out Of The Shadows

A love poem for an on-line lover

In the shadows  For 16 months A secret we kept, Even from friends In this other world Who was to know That your comment On my story Would see us Move so quickly To create our own The conversation Was so natural The curiosity,  Subtle at first, Words unspoken Building anticipation, Filling the space Between our words And so began Our gentle dance Of mutual seduction ...Read On

A Lovely Thing

It wasn't but a lovely thing on porch swing some time ago, when I first held your hand when we were teens and the fireflies wink. Then we went steady and you wore my class ring,  many springs ago at the prom  listening to Johnny Cash. It wasn't but a lovely thing, then you took my name and with champagne we danced, on porch we kissed. And then in winter's snow  you left me...Read On

Chains Of Temperance

In my new calling over the horizon Hauling my chains of temperance, I'll be swatting prose with a set of feathers While sipping fermented ambrosia, And doodling my quips on memories, As the nib of my penis cry lost inspiration Gone are the pebbles and beaches of palms As grains of sin mark my sigh, It wasn't but a fall I slipped from grace And my prose became a farce ...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

They are Still There, Just Hidden

Those smiles. Those names. Those looks. Those gestures. Those touches. You know the ones, You fell in love with. They are still there, They touch you. In ways you never, Expected, Wanted, Needed. You didn’t want to see. You didn’t want to feel. You didn't want to remember. You didn’t want to need. But some way, Some how, Some force, Some time. It hit you like a wall....Read On

Though Dreams are Dim and Distant

Remembering the place where young lovers met

(Note: This poem was written many years ago and recently found) Though dreams are dim and distant I remember: Across the field the swallows swept the grain, And Autumn on the hillside lay to slumber, While shadows browsed like cattle ‘til evening came. And when the sun set low behind the grove, And the early evening air was still and somber, My mind to other days began to rove. I...Read On

Scream

In the dark, I found my light.

Tears falling down my face, and I feel like a disgrace. It is dark, cold and lonely. Feeling the monster inside me, it's killing me, and I am powerless. The dream that never was. This killer taking my soul, my faith in love, I want it back. Screaming but not heard. I hate having you near, and not be able to say the words. A bottle stronger than me. Now, in the corner I only guess,...Read On

Color Me This Holiday

Color me red and color me green Colors of the season for some Agree or not, just get what I mean Symbols are just that to more than one Snowflakes, bells, crosses and creches Meaning to some but not to others Holiday/Christmas lights, parties and dresses Friends, laughter, love, hatred can't smother Isn't now the best time, is another better Give a kiss, a hug, share a laugh or two ...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

Ocean's Roar

Gazing at the shore Above the ocean's roar I look upon the moon And long for her once more Waves go rushing in I see her face again And wonder if she'd change My loss into a win It's doubtful now I know Still I did love her so But feelings fade to gray When loving cannot grow Saltwater mists I feel Near shores that still seem real Without her smile so bright My ship has shown its keel ...Read On

It Wears Away

It wears off, it wears away,  The newness, the newfound awareness, The luster, It wears away And they go away. Once you were special. So were they. Once you were something bright, shining Like a star In the night. No more. It wears off, it wears away, The glow they saw in the sky Was you once, But you have dulled, you have faded away. Did you change, Did they change, Did we just see...Read On
