Picnic of Sorts

one ethereal afternoon . . . .

I guess I must have drifted away You moved your hand to shade my eyes I stepped up into the clouds reached down to pull you into me We left that world far below on the outskirts of yesterday I loved how your blue gingham dress  fluttered between my fingertips With every moist and heaving sigh you shimmered like an oasis of lights The afternoons were longer then You whispered in...Read On

Thinking of You

a little doggerel for a special friend

I was thinking of you today In words I prob’ly shouldn’t say. Or, if said, just in a hush Because they’d make most people blush. Or maybe Yiddish; what the heckie Say I was playing with my schmeckie. And though you’re really far away, I still want to jump your bones today. And now I’m growing such a stalk If I stand up, I can not walk. I'll keep poking into things: The backs...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

Always in my Heart

For the one I love...

His smile infectious and captivating Women swooned over by his charm His radiance as bright as the sun He is the heartthrob of the moment A girl as bright as the moon Ignorant of his fame  Fell hard for him She has no escape Her life got a new meaning All she wanted was his love But he got carried away Left her, blaming his insecurity She let him go, hiding her tears ...Read On

How Can It Be Me?

How can it be me, When I don't know where I stand? How can it be me, When I shy away from love's demand? How can it be me, That you choose to call your love? How can it be me, When I stop my good for bad? How can it be me, When I have gone wrong before? How can it be me, That deserves such love from you? How can it be me? Because darling, I just don't see....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

First Kiss

Do you remember that feeling of the first kiss?

The affectionate feelings, as you walk side by side. Wondering if he will do it, and how it will feel if he does. Daydreaming, wishing, attraction. The stop at the front door, awkward pauses and fidgeting. Unending conversations, actually talking about the weather. Heart pounding, nerve racking, anticipation. Not wanting to be too forward, not wanting to leave without it. So nervous...Read On

The Door That Was Closed

“You know my heart is breaking,” “Crying, it hurts, please stop.” she said. I realized at that point, That is the farthest thing from the truth. Breaking is bad, nothing bad is here; Just us, just the truth, just finding it. It is the area that has been locked away; Shut so that you can protect it. I found the key;  You didn’t even know it existed, You forgot...Read On

Waiting For Spring

Sometimes, we all feel like a sentimental idiot. But we do feel...

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Hard sunlight upon crystal snow, A frozen realm where love won't grow. Daffodil shoot in stasis now, A sleeping bulb, e'er green its brow. In witching hour, this heart is caught, With no light now or lesson taught, And no fruit brought from springtime bloom, Existence only winter gloom. ...Read On

Keeping you

Keeping you, I hold you in my hands. The keys I press and depress all the lettered buttons at my disposal, and you’re still here taking all I have to give every damned expensive word and thought. You don’t even know how much I’ve given. How much I’ve needed to give, keep giving to you words you’ve always asked for these words on paper; love, desire. but I’m...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

The Dilatory Replies of Ruby

The life of a not so secret mistress..

There could never be a Silver Bullet Quite efficient enough for the likes of Scarlett. She would have already calculated angle, trajectory and speed For the most efficient of her brontide crescendos. The reducing flame for Cadmium is grey and opaque. How fitting. So just what will be the final heart stopper to the trilogy? Will dandy Rhett be left to take his southern...Read On

Whispered Kisses

In the serene gardens Of midnight, Flowers bathe in The light of your Gentle touch. You whisper kisses Against my skin And in the depth of My whimpers, I fall deeper into Your soul. My name sounds  Like music as  It caresses The soft flesh Of your lips, And the urgent devotion Of your passion Rips across the sky Like summer thunder Setting fire to the night. Your arms embrace me Like...Read On

Gift Of Om

The fissures of my prose not last, Like cracks of glass my darken past And when dusk lay dust at my pillow, I scribe of my ebony-green eyes. With musing wick of my quill stick As the tallow drips, Surrounded by the lit halo As a shadow to a mime's kiss. Shedding light of my romance, My verses trumpet seduction As the moth's wings flutter, Upon my chest bearing crystal. ...Read On

Again and Again

My mind has untied the ropes mooring me to reality. Again Pinging from light to light, finding universes and galaxies of new ideas forming. Again Tossing about like a ship, swimming, dodging waves. A web of threads and rope pulling me along. Again Laughing and cursing, I try it all. For now I have no need of sleep. I'm busy, my mind spinning so many plots and plans. Again Journeying...Read On

The Thousand Faced

Of love found, of love lost, of love found again.

I see you in the aethereal light And in the deep solemnity of night, Goddess of a thousand names and faces, Ruling over many times and places. I often pass you on the streets by day But only seldom do you glance my way. You hide behind unblinking, glacial eyes, Out on those city streets when in disguise. Yet I know your smile and your tender kiss, I have watched your...Read On

Lust over Love

What makes her worth it, what makes me not

Is it the way she bucks and arches her back when she's reached her peak, Is it more satisfying than the moan of your name coming from me What makes her worth it,  What makes me not? Is it the way she rides you till you fall asleep, Or offers herself to your mouth as your next meal to eat One night you fill her lusting mouth so neither of you have to speak, But the next night...Read On

The Train And The Tunnel

A metaphor of erotic sex and love

The train had been coming for years, always passing through the tunnel with loving care. Its steam and smoke adding to the tunnel’s love for it, hugging the walls near. It passed so close to its walls it seemed to be scraping them, and providing them with noise, rubbing and loving the tunnel. The tunnel loved the train. When the train entered the tunnel, its big round light was bright,...Read On

Hands of Time

People say time heals you, Recovers what the past had the nerve to break, But I see that before we were through, There was that time at the lake. I wouldn't have known what to do, About this attraction between us two, Had you not slipped alongside me, Then whispered "You'd better be free." Your beauty overcame me, Your simple airs and grace, Everyone we met could see, That allure upon...Read On

Heaven And Earth

You are my heaven, I have searched the earth High and low Looking for you To capture my soul I am yours and you are mine Two flames unite as one When I am with you  Heaven is where I am Looking in your eyes I see the world in a new light You're my heaven on this earth You are mine as I am yours So my search on the earth  Has come to an end For you are my heaven to...Read On

Goodbye

my goodbye

Goodbye my love,  Goodbye my heart... I hope that she will love you like I do... Goodbye to my soulmate,  Who made me open my eyes,  Who taught me where I stand... Who showed me what it means to feel beautiful,  I hope that she sees,  Just how wonderful you are,  I hope that she understands you... But most of all I hope that she shows you just how special you truly are. ...Read On

Questions

The night is alive with feelings laid bare The question is where do we go from here Humble beginnings of fumbling and groping Have become passionate yearnings for something and hoping This is not the end.  The night is alive Tomorrow reaches out with open arms...Read On

The Power Of Conversation

Having that talk isn't always the best thing

The power of conversation Who needs a church Love and lust Doesn't always work I explain That I've felt rejected Now you hate That you neglected The love I feel I put down in rhyme But I've established Maybe is no longer mine? I don't know I think its over Can it work now You were my four leaf clover It's one sided Is what I told you You hated yourself ...Read On

I Love You

When I dream, I dream of you Because you're the one person I adore. Trust me, this is true. You're the only one I can fall for. I'm sure you already knew, Because when I'm around you we can soar. The words 'I love you' are long overdue. I'm not alone anymore. We had problems but we pulled though, Because we both know what our love stands for. We always look at each...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

Spun Sugar and Caramel Cream

…and tufts of wild grass that whisper all day

Playful bright pinks and soft pastel blues, Tangerine sherbet on the horizon infuse A palette of evening hues Which your heart and soul embrace with delight, The majestic display of the eventide light. Watching a consumed sun cast its last dying rays Igniting cloud wisps in an empyrean blaze, A final act of the day, That washes gold sunlight so warm on your skin That you eagerly relish it like...Read On

Making a Memory

A kiss for luck as I climb shakily into the saddle. Your smile giving me the confidence I need. You look so at home and so at ease. The bright sun makes the beach golden. We sit atop your chestnut ponies. Walking them slowly. Wet hoof prints scuffling through the sand. They wait patiently for our cue. We talk and laugh. I've never seen your angelface light up this way. So full of joy. We...Read On

Treasured Dreams

I don't fear the night As it comes writhing in And embraces me  In its welcoming arms.  The whisper of darkness Anchors my dreams  When they're soaring Through the opaque Mist of my mind. Treasured memories Edge into my soul, Fueling dormant desires Aching to be set free again. I fear the light And its insistent sunshine As it kisses my body awake With warm strokes of a new day,  And I...Read On

The day we said we'd never forget

Meeting my love for the first time on the sand dune , in stormy skies

The day has passed The one we said we'd never forget We thought it would last After that day we first met The sun setting on the beach Storm clouds rolling in darkening the sky Below the dune, just out of my reach I run to you and want to cry Finally, our lips meet Our skin touches, our hands clasp Our bodies on fire, you can feel the heat You won't let me out of your grasp The skies open...Read On

Ode To A Real Woman

She isn’t petite and bouncy Like a Bugeye Sprite Or a cheerleader Darting around corners   But bouncing with every bump in the road. And she isn’t long and lean Like an XK 120 Or a marathon runner Eating up curves and distance As if they were made just for her. And she isn’t high maintenance Like a Masaerati Or a starlet wannabe Needing attention even if...Read On
