Nancy

The loss of a lover as they fall away...

Oh Nancy, won’t you tell me, Of the things that you see, In the land that you live in, That we call insanity. You speak of songs never sung, And ships which never sailed, And write to me from distant lands, In letters never mailed. You cry at night for the one, Who lost a love so dear, And say I am so far away, Although I sit right here. Oh Nancy won’t you...Read On

I See Her

Inspired by today's trip

Loading up my camper Looking at my bed I see her Moving down the highway My mind now flowing free I see her Canyons attract my gaze Chaos combined with beauty I see her Mountains loom around me Mysteries hidden in them I see her Dark Clouds on the horizon Depth beyond my vision I see her Raindrops upon my windshield Reminding me her wetness I see her Wind blows...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

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

Lament of a Man in Pain

A poem I wrote when I was between relationships, trying to decide how to handle the transition

Whatever I do, Wherever I go, Someone I love, or someone I know, Gets hurt, by me, so what can I say? When my every move, and my every way Is painful to Someone. I wish that I could be the good man, That people around me keep saying I am. I don't see how it could be that they see, What I can't see, a way that I can be. It's not who I am. Why should I try, to love anyone, When there is...Read On

Heaven Sapphire

Adonis awaiting your command mi-lady...

Beyond a mortal man impassioned far, At these voluptuous accents, he arose, Ethereal, flushed, and like a throbbing star, Seen 'mid the sapphire heaven's deep repose, Into her dream he melted, as the Rose  Blendeth its odor with the Violet -elixer sweet: Meantime the frost-wind blows Like a lover's quarrelled rage Against the windowpanes; MidKnights' Moon hath set Within your...Read On

Lies

Why do you pretend to care? Your eyes are full of lies You swore you would never lie again Yet you broke your promise to me You put on a brave mask Thinking no one can see your true self But I know you’re secretly afraid Always trying to be someone you're not You pushed everyone away Now you sit there alone and scared Not a soul around you To listen to you cry ...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

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

I Love You

I love you always and forever my love, Put your hand in mine and don't ever let go. Let bathe you in my kisses for the rest of your life. I love you more than all the stars in the sky and  I will love you past the day I die. You loving me is beyond my wildest dreams, My heart is yours and yours alone. Karma has paid me back ten-thousand fold, You're all I've ever wanted and so...Read On

Your Hands

The light from the stereo fights the darkness. Music? Anything will do. It isn't meant to entertain, merely to muffle my cries from the neighbor with her ear to the wall. The thought of your hands is maddening. I crave them beyond all reason. The feel of them on my breasts, kneading, pulling, twisting, pinching as pain and pleasure become indistinct. Your hands, demanding access, prying open...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

Unit

I thought that you knew, We worked better as a unit, Two of us as one, Not adding a stupid third wheel. Its like when you learn to ride a bike, (Cough)   Not  when you become one, Your training wheels are good to start, But eventually two wheels is enough. Like a plug and a socket, A necklace and a locket, Two things fit together just right, Kind of like a switch and a light. So...Read On

Upon My Sleep

The midnight hour as I rest upon my sleep and you in cuddle of my embracing arms, soft breath of the swooning willows bough...  apple dumplings taste good even in dreams. As streams of kisses lay on my chest and your hands gently bask my stones, on fields of quilt my limbs sway... apple dumplings taste good even in dreams....Read On

Through His eyes

It is wonderful And scary at the same time When someone sees you as special, As someone of great value. On one hand it makes you fly, Find belief and joy, Pride in that you matter. At the same time, The worry is there, Of not being able to live up to it, Afraid you will fail or disappoint. He sees her In a way she doesn’t understand. She is a bit of a broken soul, In a broken...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

The one that haunts your dreams.

The One That Haunts Your Dreams I'm the one that haunts your dreams The one that teases your fragile mind Such a dark and charming mystery Where nothing is as it seems With me excitement you will find Washing away your mundane misery I tease and tantalize your senses I fill you with wonderful pleasure You dream of my dangerous touch With my delicate kiss your skin it tenses With me of a...Read On

Waves

I wish I could make it easy, Easy to love me, Love me. That is the way the lyrics go, But nobody will, Love me. Maybe the hurt will leave, If I stay in the waves, Wash away. If I float away, Into the deep, Get lost. They won't love me, I won't let them, I fear. More hurt could come, More heartbreak, No. But I should just rest, Rest in the waves, Let love just find me....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

Moving On

Learning how to live again after letting go of love

Moving on is easy? O I wish this were so. Flying inside my glass jar, With lid screwed tight, Nail holes allowing Barely enough oxygen, Forcing me to forget My natural existence, Else anxious thoughts Thrash my wings Removing precious air. Moving on is easy? O I wish this were so. On the cold, hard bottom Do I lay down to rest. Tossing and turning, My mind is alive with Hauntings of what...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

A Long Time Of...

Where once the breezes blew, The winds of times now ail, and new storms brew, Standing lonely hours of truth On bed of my lies, (mediocrity at best...) As your eyes of cat deceived me But I paid the price. Isn't that the way fools spin excuses And spots never fade, (maybe stripes...) Leaving the good of my got crying? On bed of my lies, In my new anointed life of deceit,...Read On

She has a date

When I learned Ruby had a date.

It starts with an idea; sublime torture... the bluntest of instruments. Think of apricot marmalade, with a touch of crimson cayenne, spread slowly about a nipple and over the folds of an areola. Think of the sun making it melt and wafting its scent to the bees. Think of the sweat that bleeds salt and distills the pepper to pucker. A bee hovers and buzzes seeking...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

Presence

The light your presence made pulls away from my heart, lingering inside and swelling for years, the spaces between promises growing like rings loosening from our fingers. This ghost knows me well, so please do not reach for me anymore, the trails I've made are not yours, your steps only make tremors when walking along darkened roads. In the distance there are still glimpses at the edges,...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
