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

Freedom

Voices accusing. Fingers pointing An unforgiving world of strangers The guilt and blame are crushing This world is my prison with no escape There is nowhere safe left to hide For you For me Loneliness is like a creature  From which I can't run Where I go it waits Where I hide it lurks In you is my hope found You light my darkness Define my purpose  Because of you ...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

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

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

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

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

How to Care for a Rose

In bloom.... for now.

A rose should not be awake to hear crickets and the rustle of Midnight's breeze as rain drops dance on leaves and eaves In the quiet moments you can hear a whisper But then it's gone but not forgotten A rose she needs things she's really just a shrub lucky enough to have beautiful moments between dying and death She needs room to breathe yet such tender care Leave her too long ...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

The Many Faces of Look

We look with our eyes but see with our mind.

The Many Faces of Look There is the look that you get when you are bad Then when you are good too There is the look you get when you are sick Then when you are feeling great There is the look that you get at night Then the look in the morning There is the look on your lover face when making love Then when you are cuddling afterwards There is the look you get when...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

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

Lost Without You

I am lost without you... Lost in the darkness, I call out your name, But I can not find you, I shiver in fear. The fear is polarizing, Causing me to freeze, Not knowing what to do, Or where to turn. I sit here crying, Needing to be rescued, Wanting your tender embrace, To make me feel safe again. I sit alone for hours, As night turns into day, And I realize I am still alone, My fears...Read On

Soft, So Soft

Soft, so soft the skin on your cheek, with the down of desire so silky smooth to the touch. I lightly stroke you with the tenderness of a lover transforming your tears to smiles, tracing down your face from each bedewed eyelid to your lips, tasting the salinity of loss. I fulfill. I am the one to bring you forth and bear you up into the heights of passion, with a forgetfulness of...Read On

Lust is not forever

His breath against your lips, hands interwoven, ankles together. Skin burning against skin, You can forget just for a moment. Your past falls away, you are scar free You can ignore the whole world And the life that awaits you after you leave his bed Instead, there is just this gentle kiss His cologne is all you smell, his lips are all you taste His skin is all you feel, brushing against...Read On

Drowning

what breaking up feels like

I hear his voice whisper, "I've met someone else, you see." And my heart gave a lurch and my body jerked, and tears fell like rain. It is always the same this sweet little stabbing pain. This twisted little knife that love welded. So he cut the tether that held us together, Set me adrift in a sea with no end, Where storm clouds of loneliness loom and the thunder of I wonder who. ...Read On

Silk

The ties that bind...

It isn’t silk binding your wrists It’s opportunity It isn’t leather around your ankles It’s a welcoming It isn’t a metal bar parting your knees It’s encouragement It isn’t linen arching your back It’s authentication It isn’t cotton pervading your mouth It’s silence It isn’t just suppression It’s cotton saturating your impertinence It isn’t just endorsement It’s...Read On

Dream

I wish... I wish...

In the still of the night, As I lay down on my bed. Feels the blows of the wind, Hears the tick of the clock. Sleep took over, As I close my eyes. Feels your touch in my skin, Hears your voice in my ear. Is this Neverland? My mind wonders As I dream. Where I can be with you, Where all things possible. Rune03.25.15...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

Two Cubes Will Do

It wasn't willy-nilly, our love we confessed And listened to birds caroling the eve of our wed. I believe in prayers of golden rings, Of sixty years the short time wed, And the knitting yarn you wore with charms... Jack and Jill chimes. Hey barkeep! One more please. I believe in rainbows with stairs and banisters to hold on to, rocking chairs with chariot wings  and silly little...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

Echoes

Echoes of a loved one lost....

ECHOES The echoes of you, linger within the bedroom The once lively surroundings, of your voice and smell of your perfume The smoothing shapely perfection, of your arched spine Our legs crossed as lovers, our bodies intertwined Your touch, your smell, the way you awoke my inner desires My heart performing a double beat, faster than it requires The succulent lips so soft to kiss, as I...Read On

Love Is...

Love breathes life into me, And makes me feel alive. Love is a friendship, a union. Hearts bound for an eternity. Love is waking each morn, To your kiss which brings me comfort. Love is wanting to know and hear, Everything about my day. Love nourishes my soul and warms my heart, As we waltz together through life. Love is knowing my faults, And never pulling away. Love is not saying a...Read On

Kindred spirits

Somehow, It is like we just met, That it was only yesterday We started this journey we are on. Yet at the same time I can’t quite remember How life was without you, As if I have known you forever. A funny, little paradox, But perhaps that is why Our bond is so strong, Like old souls meeting anew. Though every day, There is also something to learn, To discover about the other,...Read On

Wanting

An expression of loss

  I sit here wanting words when what I really want is you-- not the sound of syllables, or the right ring of rhymes, or the cleverness of making metaphors that bounce off the imagination. Poetry is what cannot be stuffed into words. It’s buried underneath like a muffled cry hardly heard, a silent hand reaching up into the sky from under mud. Do you hear my cry? Do...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

All I Need

I have all I need

Together, all our love  this night, was for our children’s dreams. Their tiny toys  and bits of sweets, safely wrapped beneath our tree. Rewarded by their innocence, their joy of life, and their sweet repose. It warms my heart,  and it warms yours, too to give them all of those. Our family sings and loves and laughs  on this Christmas eve. And with them in their happy place, The...Read On

Only Words

I love how only words can transform the mind and emotions

Only Words II People say they are only words, nothing more, Author, Poet Yet, you capture my heart and transport my mind with those verbs and nouns you spew so freely, your adjectives painting the grandiose or sublime. To love-drenched beaches and torture-dungeons alike I readily go with you without fear, stranger. You lift my spirit one day and drown my soul the next, fill me...Read On

One August afternoon

Memory

To yearn for you is futile, now, Though it may cosset memory; You passed that day down to the brook, But glanced, glanced just once, back at me. And all that August afternoon I dreamed myself beside you there, Your pale legs in the swirly rill, And on the moss your body bare. Traitor to your invitation, I wished away my summer day. Oh, Ellen, by such cowardice, Not you, not you did...Read On
