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

Song

Sometimes a song can take your breath away

Words Notes follow You My heart Torn wide You Still No breath You Chill  Inside You Blush Of heat You Heat  Does rise You Gasp  Of wonder You Sweet  Surprise You Turns To knowledge You Then believing You....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

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

Will You Gambol?

Will you gambol along with me? Frolic with glee galore. Playfully romp across the fields of freedom. Frisk about with no thought of embarrassment, No blushes of shame, Cavorting with your lover, Liberated by eager spirits of joy. Will you? I am here and we could be open And happy once more, Just take my hand, We can be released from our existential Madness, Our emotions on exhibition,...Read On

My Silly Friend

My silly lady friend stopped by, My silly little friend, My darling friend who is away so often now Living her life. Working, Studying, And loving. And being the precious jewel she is To the world. And to me. She stops by when she can, When the world allows, When her life Allows her the time. And sometimes she spends the time with me. With me, The one who adores her little butt. The...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

Show Your Face

You show your face and fill my eyes with tears  That fall like gemstones as my heart does quake With humble thanks that you have lost your fears And let your visage grace, 'tis for my sake. No more must I with bated breath request That you reveal your beauty to my sight, You simply filled my thirst and I was blessed Because I now am quenched with pure delight. I never more shall feel that...Read On

Alone

I don't often write poems but I this is one of my better written pieces. It was written awhile back and has never been shared before. Sitting I wonder what happened to us. From friends to lovers and back again, Ever repeating the cycle. Shared conversations on every topic. The one I trusted with everything, Opened myself never considering the pain to come. Feelings of love...Read On

Pars pro toto

erotic alloy

Pars pro toto. Midnight overature... misnomer concerto. Maestro's, domanatrix baton. Operatic collaboration. Saint Andrews Cross. Inebriated, open inhibitions. Ascertained celebration. Like frost on a mirror, erotic alloy. Precum but droplets on their tongues The eye of vermouth, the olive of truth. I stand, endpin... mahogany cello. Adagio Saraccus Montebello. ...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

Light And Dark

Every gust of wind is an icy blade, cold fingers crossing and dragging along everything that made my heart beat for you. I know how to keep it all inside, and let others write my side of the story, because I'm already too busy sealing myself away, stitching closed all the places that once wanted to let someone inside, where I could give what was left of me. The sides that were light and...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 One

One day I will find him, The one that calms my soul. The one that makes me crazy. The one that wrecks my pretty little life. The one that bring passion and all its colors. The one that was made for me. The one that I submit to. The one that wants only me. The one that makes me see how beautiful I am. The one that shows me how to be happy. The one that sees all of...Read On

Fortunately Forrest

Just a shadow I spread of myself, In Fortunately Forrest I stance, 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods. Casting but a nuance of me Under shade of the tree, Wisp of stirring breeze Laying kisses upon my lips. In soft silence, whispering prose, Daydreams I suppose, In time, my mind flight's, Gifts of love I compose. 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods, In arabesque the...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

Just Once

sometimes in life we are given...

 Just Once I want to touch your body Pretend that it is mine. Just Once Kiss your lips as our tongues Tangle in a dance as old as time.   Just Once Lie next to you as close as can be Feeling your arms, your love, wrapped around me.   Just Once Have your body, over, within mine Feel our hearts, beating in time.   Just Once Lay spent and replete In my...Read On

Just Another Day

This date just does not add up to us.

My Valentine A word that is so misconstrued in the world today, Life and the world has us looking the wrong way. We never celebrated like the rest of the world, Our day is everyday and that's what it should. To say that I enjoy the cliche part of the holiday is false, Hallmark would say that it's just for us. Now this is not to say that I do not adore my wife, She is my soul mate...Read On

Yonder

While crossing bridges As the prose goes Yonder as the Rubicon flows Never looking back But poetically sounder A passing dalliance shows Keeping my eyes straight ahead When the fire burns in my chest With pebbles of kisses For a love not to be Without floundering While crossing bridges Yonder as the Rubicon flows...Read On

Our Story

This story doesn’t have A true beginning And I don’t know if it Will have an end   With love it is hard To pinpoint the exact minute It surpassed lust and Encompassed your heart   We were close friends Who had never met Then we were lovers Who had never touched   Soul-mates But living separate lives Perfect together But a million miles apart   In the middle of the  ...Read On

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

Simplest Love

If the simplest love were a spice, My love for you would be a sumptuous buffet Leading you to forget that you were ever hungry. If the simplest love were a color, My love for you would be a vast rainbow Which would illuminate your path to joy. If the simplest love were a tone, My love for you would be an orchestra That would play the soundtrack of your heart. If the simplest love were...Read On

My treasure

My treasure

You stood there at my side, when others walked away, not wanting me to be a part. You lent me your ear, when others turned their heads. You lent me your shoulder, when others would not. You took me in your arms, when other pushed me away. You wiped away my tears, when other looked away. You calmed my nerves, and eased my pain, when other enjoyed it. You kissed...Read On

Learning To Trust

This is hard to tell myself I need to trust in myself again To trust the people around me again To Trust the ones I loved For the ones to come after Until I can I will be alone... They tell me it takes a lot of Courage Faith and Love I believe I have Faith and the Courage Love will come later If and when it does I will be ready ...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

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

Those Two Words

Those two words, how often have I heard them and felt relief? How often have we all heard them and been brought hope? The pain each time I hear those words, they sear my heart with grief. Thoughts of beginnings and ends, my soul I twist into a killing rope. I swim out beyond the shore and waves, now beyond your reach. Salt water fills my ears, the sound of your words I try to drown. I look...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

Shake the Dust

Time to shake the dust off… Dance with me baby, dance To shake the dust from your skin Let it move, and bend again Move your head, side to side, So the world is blurred And the dust will shake from your hair, Let it flow, let it fly Breathe with me darling, breathe To blow the dust from your lungs Breathe the dust from the furnace, To breathe fire again, like the dragons, Like...Read On
