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

What He Heard

There is a big difference between what a woman says and how a man interprets it.

I love you she said, I want you he heard. I want you, she said, I need you, he heard. I need you, she said, I love you, he heard. Put your arms around me, she said, Protect me, he heard. Please hold me, she said, Take me, he heard. I’m afraid, she said, Don't leave me, he heard. I hurt inside, she said, You hurt me, he heard. I’m feeling insecure, she said, ...Read On

Typhoon

I watched you enter happily, A cool breeze from the west, You met my good friend easily, The gentle sun spot she is. The two of you started harmoniously, No sign of a storm, I saw the weather fronts move, Collide and become one. Things took a turn for the worst quickly, The weather began to frown, The sun started hastily, To decide it should come down. When you became a wrecking ball,...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

Silence

The loss of a lover

I rolled over in my dream I felt the silence of your promise to me to love me forever your forever only lasted a breath your love was a lie to get me to open my heart so that you could scoop out what you wanted and leave... what you desired not so as I toss in longing of my tortured dreams the sheets of my life twisted and damp I wish you nothing for nothing is what you left me with...Read On

The start

A story of a beginning. A birth, a new love, a new desire...

This is all before I was born Into the real secret of soulful existence, The return of innocence, And the eye of the storm of love. This is before healing, And the gift of beauty, And eternity. This is a magical tale of fact and fiction, Of memory and dream, I cannot tell you where the cloud ends, And the blue sky begins. A song spins around a central pillar, ...Read On

The truth of it

You are the conflict that tears me in two. You are my friend, and I love you.  I love you for your imaginative ways, Your tender displays and, well,  no particular thing. You know, if I could sing, I'd sing about you....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

Shamans Lair

Enter a world of sensuality and mystery

Enter my lair of sensual desire Where following my lead ignights your desire In my world of flames there's no right or wrong Heaven or hell beckons you on You tense and you whimper as I enter your ass With no thoughts of wanting these feelings to pass Pleasing me is all that you need And that makes me happy, by all means proceed I know that I've led you to this world of sin So...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

You Are Mine

They are words to be carved into the marrow, not carefully inked on skin, but another could feel it thrumming through your wrists or if fingers lace with unleashed hunger around your neck It lives in the blood and speaks against any and all premonition, all those who approach the delicate places you've gradually revealed to me. It would be wrong to tell you that I love you, to...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

Bringing Parables

Dead shadows sow no seeds, Nor dew freeze fallen leaves. But words of poets spoken, Forever bringing parables, Restoring my faith in romance, Of psalms and Heaven all above. And when I plant my troth on your lips, Let no bellows blow apocalypse As we kiss 'neath the apple tree, Forever bringing parables....Read On

Words and A Thank You

A heartfelt thank you to everyone here, both authors and readers and those who run this site

The power of words, an often very familiar subject matter for poetry and prose. The choice of words and the community of Lush is what I wish to examine for a short time here. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, the choice is a never ending list. For from now I'll just use the word rose. I know some words have power over me, my feelings, my mood and can even incite some fear. How has this come to be?...Read On

Welcome Home

I sit very still and not make a sound Trying not to let my breath show How he effects me How my fingertips burn How my body shakes How wet my pussy is dripping How badly I need his touch When he walks into the room I continue to try to read Knowing how he is making me feel How much I need and want When he comes to me And I look up into his eyes He smiles and winks ...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

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

The Worst Poem Ever

I warned you it's bad.

I am a nerd. That much is clear. Yet every day, I find you here. The love of my life, Maybe my future wife. But before I make this lass my bride, I'll write this geeky diatribe. I don't need the Dragon Balls or the sacred Shikon Jewel. You've already made my wish come true and made me a blissful fool. I would turn down Aphrodite, I would break the Jedi Code, Give up my Batmobile And...Read On

No Au Revoir For Now (But Somehow I Knew)

for jamie.

I wanted you to have the option, and hoped you wouldn't take it, I want you to be happy, and excited and free to love, I want you to love me, and to do so of your own choosing.  I want you to be dangerous, and risky and sometimes mysterious. How is it that you can never be if you haven’t even asked what I want from you? Ive been quiet, Ive done whats expected, Ive lived...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

The Ace and Queen, fading memorie on a mantle

Cars, music, and wordplay, this is how things started. Together in the distance, but never in real life.   First you needed me, then it was my turn. Both in times of need, bonded in a game of 21. Blackjack, and for the time of the game, we won. Now reality faces us. No more cards. We will never be more complete than 21 The deck is finished, the game to an end. On to the sunset you...Read On

If

If - the biggest word in the English language

If things were different, I would be on that plane, Flying halfway around the world.  If things were different, I would find a way, To live in that cabin in the woods. If things were different, I would spend every night, Wrapped in your arms. If things were different, I would wear my collar with pride, For the world to know I'm yours. If things were different, I would shout from...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

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

The Red

Wanting to run

Tonight she wanted to run. Far away, never return. Overwhelmed by the past  Memories burning like acid  Stinging and destroying in its path  Corroding, disintegrating Maybe it was wrong to return, Seeing it all over and over, Remembering what was once hers, But never to be again. She thought she could find her own quiet corner, Co-exist, hidden behind thin veils, ...Read On

What Do You Crave?

When she's everything you crave.

“What do you Crave?” Was the question she asked, And the answer was simple I knew. “Your soft hand in mine, To hear the beat of your heart, And to gaze at the stars beside you.” “The touch of your hand, The light in your eyes, Your soft smile that lightens my heart.” “The curve of your hips, The sound of your sighs, And your kiss when each new day starts.” “The scent of your skin, The...Read On

Five More Minutes

Wish I had me a pause button - Scotty McCreery

We all want five more minutes We want a pause button for the good stuff Eight years old catching fireflies Mama yells time to come in We yell five more minutes Sixteen years old on your front porch Kissing good night Your Dad flipping the light switch Interrupting our good night kissing We say five more minutes Eighteen years old last home football game We wanted five more minutes ...Read On

As You Desire, As You Request... My Fire

And so as you request, thy desires I offer to fulfill to thrill.

I present to thee as ye to me,  A history of form and function,  A perfected him before perfect her,  We both do dare this juncture of dance  Where layers lay bare to caring stare and circumstance, And strum of digit, hum of lips,  Sips from dripping honeyed hips, Our offered symbol, confident trust,  Swaying thus a gentle thrust,  As God intended, all is splendid… harmony. ...Read On
