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

Four Remembrances

Remembering being young and in love...

Cafe, dancing girl, rich girl and Romeo, Cigarettes, whisky, cheap and grainy video, Neon, moonlight, long past midnight In Paris where, Syncopated second line And dancing to the ragtime, Make her head spin, And she though always splendid In silk and lace, Hides her beauty in another place. -  Riverside, fairground ride, laughing girl and Romeo With little...Read On

Walking in the Fog of Passion

Come awake, Shake it off, After so much time Lost in dreams that never came true. You have spent your senses  In words to the air, Throwing your reason Into the dust bin Of your consciousness. A cleansing rain of honesty Washes away The fog of besotted lust Unmet and unreturned. Words have power, As you full well know, Manipulating  And playing with them  In ascending  Stairways of...Read On

Love's Destruction and Question.

a poem about loves aftermath and questioning it.

A Pit of despair, Is it worth to repair? Mend it, Make it whole. Is it worth more, Broken or fixed? Shattered into Pieces, Waiting til it ceases. Ceases it beating, With pain Fleeting. Love bring Pain. Which the heart Causes. Is love worth the Pain? Can it be healed by the Rain? What can heal the Heart, Surely it can't be Love. Which is a pain from the Start....Read On

Yearning

Love grows and flourishes with much care and understanding.

Yearning Cheltenham ***** Rain falls over sun-parched land and runs down through the meadow Young flowers sing its coolness brings a nurturing earthen kiss Grow and mature while you're pure Frolic amidst your brethren What I held close A fresh picked rose Peek down from clouds in heaven A wrenching heart Words when we part To find within her reason A thumping beat what...Read On

Simple Warmth

The chill is setting in  I feel the loss again my life is good I know but I still miss her so It was no goal of mine never meant by design my heart is deep in pain because it's been in vain No more of the laughter that always came after  our sessions of frolic my heart's melancholic How did it end this way what did I ever say nothing seems to matter worlds are going to shatter The winter...Read On

Peace

I have found my peace within...

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

The Red

The red flows along the floor Crawls away to leave in peace The broken glass that fell with it Sits cold against the floor Alongside the lovers flesh The two bodies lay still More alive than they had ever been The grapes of love forgotten In the heat of...Read On

The Lady of Shallot

Onion a bird in a gilded cage

The Lady of Shallot Like an onion, you'd have me peel Knowing full well how I'd feel. Swooning, my head it would reel As naughty glances you would steal. Layer after layer must fall off Until at last all clothes I doff. But for you is that enough? What more is there left to slough? I'd stand naked from toes to chin Before you, Sir, in my bare skin. With my...Read On

There

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. There's a whisper on the night winds As they kiss my naked skin; There's a fire within the starlight For this empty heart to win. There's an urge within my longing, Deep desire to be with you; There's a passion in this aching For the things I want to do. There's a tingle in my fingers, And a...Read On

The night is alive

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

Restless

Twisting, turning, she can’t find sleep. Tired, yet restless, All her thoughts are with him, Longing for his kisses, His touches that awaken her body And reaches inside her soul, Making her come alive. Her insides feel like a smouldering volcano, Molten lava in her veins. She knows he can’t be with her tonight, He can’t bring her to the edge, Then letting her body erupt, ...Read On

Life’s Highway

True friendships will surely transcend.

Roughened pathways and trails we travel. Trials and tribulations, we try to unravel. Souls touched, hearts associated. Paths crossed, memories dictated. Connections made along life's trail. Sometimes continue, sometimes fail. Hearts touching, sometimes at high cost. True friendships made, are never lost. Highways traveled, be they short or long. Leave...Read On

Kissed You Naked

I kissed you naked

I kissed you in the hallway and kissed you naked on the floor, I kissed you in the kitchen and kissed you naked near the door, I kissed you in the morning and again by silvery moon, Kissing you naked always causes me to swoon. So leave your scanties in the hallway and your bra upon the door, Place your nipples on the counter and your feet upon the floor, Sex me in the evening beneath a...Read On

All of You

To my Valentine; Love means wanting to know all of you.

When I say I want you  I am trying to say… I want all of you. Not just the jagged bits Or thread worn pieces Left like debris in a storm I want your whole heart I want to know your soul I want all of you Not just your lips But your deepest kiss Not just your limbs Intertwined within mine or your arms and hands Interlaced holding mine I want to feel the weight Of your body pressed Fully...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

Love In Waiting

Love from afar

She was there all along, Like the rhythm within a song. Her melody playing behind your eyes, Hummed in silence without knowing why. Patiently waiting for you to see her, The pain of loving you she would willingly endure. She consoled herself with your voice from a distance, Leaving no doubt she suffered by her resistance. Each moment stolen twixt night and day, Left...Read On

Recognition

Dreams can come true.

I stare into the a face of a`dream She knows not that I even exist I watch her daily, waiting Hoping, she may notice me I am but a regular guy Few would know that I exist I watch the crowd, waiting Hoping, others may notice me I stroll the street looking for love Those I see know not that I am here I watch intently, waiting Hoping, love will notice me I stare into the...Read On

Patient Fingers

A brief love affair that happened only in my mind...

The last time you wore that blouse, there were eight buttons done up. I remember, because my fingers trembled with nervous energy. They were fixated on them. No, mesmerized by them. Begging to undo them, button by delicious button. Eight buttons. Eight. I see you're wearing it again today. Oh, miracle of miracles! Today there are seven.  Only seven. The eighth button...Read On

To Capture a Raven's heart

The capture of a reluctant heart

there was once a man who use to watch a raven fly day by day he watched her climb he watched as she dipped her wings way up high once he even heard her cry once she flew close enough for him to see the colors in her eyes and he began to ponder why she cried because in his eyes her spirit shined so day by day he watched her fly 'til he begin to hear her the loneliness in...Read On

Imagine Me

Imagine what I'd do, if I could get my hands on you.

Soft lips, soft skin, soft heart, Soft smile, soft kiss, lips part. Her eyes, sparkling,  Her breath, ragged, Consuming me, making me weak, taking. Her voice, breaking, Skin, sweating. Begging. "Please." She winces, and falls to her knees. Trembling hands. Clutching, squeezing, touching. Leaving. She watches. Longs.  "Come back." You belong....Read On

The Collide

For someone who is always on my mind.

Everything dims around me, a bulb's filament fading fast, the light along warm bodies cautiously receding when we reach for one another, our naked shapes like two darkened continents afloat, struggling to collide in our new forms. Consuming me now as much as the first time I tried to unravel your mysterious layers, the clues and fissures bringing us closer to entwining, closer...Read On

Carried Away

Sometimes I wonder where my love went When they were carried away, Wondered if their heart found Somewhere new to play. I look at things they love, See tears in my eyes, Touching at memories, Glancing over subtle lies. I remember the boat they left on, Sailing away into the sun, Promising times would follow, And they would be having so much fun. Sometimes I wonder if my love...Read On

A flame

A single candle Flickers in the dark, Its mesmerizing dance Drawing her in. Memories Of her lover’s touch Evoked. The warmth Reflecting off the candle, Like the skin Of her lover, Pressed against hers, Warming her. The candle’s heat And brightness Only paralleled With what she sees In his eyes, As their bodies join In unison. Strength of memory Almost too much To bear,...Read On

June Morning

Words felt, then spoken

I chose to say "I love you" Uncertain how you felt I chose to tell you, not so I Could keep you for myself I chose to say I love you Cradled in your arms Together, lying in your bed My thoughts securely warm I knew then that I loved you  June breezes swirling through Your shadeless windows open On that morning in your room I felt the words so gently Sunlight streaming in The fragrance...Read On

Genuflection Of A Swallow

Its a longtime it seems, not so many teardrops ago, Genuflection of a swallow.  When the soft winds sung and wedding bells rung, And now the wrens have made their nest. In the old church steeple that shadows my final rest, There the kisses of the rainbow fall on my shoulders. Lasting memories our golden rings, Its a longtime it seems in eternal dreams. When you laid me down in...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

Cold And Dry

It’s that empty place inside; from it I always try to hide. But it follows me around; to my mind it’s tied and bound. My heart bleeds like it has been stabbed; sweet memories are now stained with sadness. Left not knowing what to do or why; hopelessness I’ve got no will to try. You are not who I thought you were; but I don’t know, I haven’t heard. Incomplete and left to wonder; all...Read On
