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

Marked

First poem in years

I got you through the winter, willing to be the steps behind you, the traces and threads of what broke you untie, the closer we get to where you came from. And anything that was ever special, anything about me that ever illuminated your eyes may already be leaving cell by patient cell, frame by frame. So I drove the coast alone, by trees swaying in wind, trying to tear free...Read On

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

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

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

Touching Leaves

The winds bring to me, whispering kisses and soft touching leaves of sensual love breeze romantic carousel  and wisp of floating stars in your hair, scent of you being there. Like a choir of trees the sycamores sing as your lips lay bliss on my fingers bring,  stirrings in the midnight hollow  where boughs confess my happiness. The winds bring to me,  my undying words and prose, ...Read On

A Do Over

Lovers should never pay For the mistakes of our pasts Damage done by others Meeting you was by chance Finding a love so beautiful Was purely a miracle  Love is a gift given with care Sometimes opening a new world The possibilities seem endless Past abuse and unspoken fears Faded slowly thanks to your love Each kiss soothed my soul The past can not be changed Do overs are not promised...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

Like A Sparrow

Like a sparrow I spread my wings, caressing with prose my words sing with quill and feather my verses ring, love songs caroling in the breeze bringing me to my knees. I saw a sparrow fall, high above the trees, as it fell from the blue pudding sky. I pen these tweets true to you, keep warm the nest until my return, like a sparrow I flew beyond the clover with wishes of kisses...Read On

The Tide Rolls In

It's sunset and the sky is red, By sunrise I'll be found as dead. I'm waiting as the tide rolls in, Regretting all that might have been. Not caring if I see the light From all the stars or moon tonight. My story is an ancient one Of love that's gone, a life undone. With shivers I am supine here, The coldness tells me death is near The waters surge about me now, I feel the chill, I touch...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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Afternoon Delight

The moment that I saw it A grin lit up my face  It was as if Across the miles I felt your warm embrace How odd and lovely To receive Some mail that’s not a bill What joy it sparked At long day’s end To garner such a thrill! Encased in thick cream envelope With three stamps on its front Smiling at the taped-down flap I opened it at once So sweet to see you write my name! The words...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

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

Hunger

Lust feeds on desire Like a fire on wood Souls gaze and admire Their kittens are their food Tongues hunger for succus Exploring bodies lit Lips, thighs and anus Tits, nipples and clit Flesh hunger for more Individuals want to be one Crevices ever so sore Increasing pleasure like none Vaginal geysers squirt Figures in quaking shifts Souls continue their flirt Lustful hunger on drift...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

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

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

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
