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

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

Aroused

I don't often become aroused at what I can't see Except when it's beauty of the forest and fallen leaves As the breeze whispers halos about my neck The boughs dance on the honeycomb trees And kiss my memories of wildflowers and you As your soft breath lands on my soul And the buzzing of the bees loom With keynotes of love songs past...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

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

Mini-break to Scotland

A night I will never forget.

A mini-break in Scotland You planned it from the start One thing on your mind that night You planned to steal my heart   You found the perfect way With the story that you told To pop that special question With a diamond set in gold   A cosy little restaurant A table set for two How was I supposed to know You’d make my dream come true   Our love is something we can share It’s...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

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

In Abstract

Often as not, I masturbate to sound. Like the whisp of a spirit. Progressive jazz or blues. I cum for you too, in my abstract.  Your penis flexed, smooth unconcealed. You walk past your window, starring at me. Exhibitionary daring. I drip overtures, in my abstract.  Mahogany soft cellos and violins. Where do I begin. Bring to me my wanton pleasures,  as you skin back your...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 Leaving

Is the time we are together worth the pain of being apart?

A single rose you spied At the tail end of summer I promised you that I would come. I packed my bag and left my grey In trails of pallid cotton candy To take the first train out of Bedlam. You meet me at the station Formalities straight up and neat But your scent Richer than remembrance Left me breathless on my feet. There is a ride I don't remember Food I could not...Read On

Starr Crossed Lovers Whose Mood Turns to Doom

My poetic tribute to fatuous fate and infatuation.

Behold six pairs of doomed lovers, Slain by their own hands or by another. With poison, knife, serpent and lust. Ah! But whose marriage really went bust? Heloise and Abelard. Both were brilliant. He was unmanned but still proved resilient. Paris and Helen launched ships and war The greatestthe Bronze Age ever saw. Antony and Cleopatra: Westwed East. They had grand aspirations, to say...Read On

Little words

Words can be brief, but their echo goes on forever...

Some words carry within them So much meaning, such depth, Modest, little letters put together, Becoming almost sacred in their meaning. A single word can hold magic, Make me tingle with delight, Feel proud and at peace, Make my heart beat out of my chest. Home.. Want.. Mine.. Love.. Small words that mean everything When spoken by a special someone, He that holds my heart, ...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

Remember How I Cried

Remember how I cried  When first I heard your voice? Remember how I died When last I was your choice? Forget the way my world Was torn asunder then. Forget the way it swirled, I lost my where and when.  Just know I cannot wait, Just walk with me once more. My pain must soon abate,  Love me, I still implore. The honey of your tone Was sweetness to my ears, And you and you alone  Could bring...Read On

A Place Out of Time

someone else thought it good enough to be here, so here it is.

Lost Speak and be Heard, I hide in Shame, The Death of Desire, And I am to Blame. A Voice is Silenced, It's Death screams out, My world torn apart, Left in Doubt. Hope and Despair, War from Within, When will it finish? Where does it Begin? Acceptance and love, Could have been mine, If I hadn't been Lost, In a Place out of Time....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

Borderline-Blue

In my borderline-blue as teapot whistles, On a winter's morn of winter's cold And frost on the prose of last night's quill, My thoughts of killer-green eyes As a simmering steam shows A shadow of you, To cast out my melancholy. With a kiss of the scent And a wild lemon zest, You caress the old bard's soul  With a wisp of a daydreams mist,  On the shores of borderline-blue....Read On

Hide Away

It hit me in the night, I left every door open and still nothing, I’m such a bloody fool, To think he might, but no. I will remove myself from more harm, Cover my feelings and hide, It is the way to be safe, I’ve learned, No more, ever, ever, ever, never ever. Thought I was safe in my secret world, But it crept up on me somehow, Didn’t even notice til it was too late, And now it...Read On

The Warmth

The light had all but gone, Extinguished by cruel words, And harsh moments. Her feelings numbed, And thoughts disregarded, The candle snubbed out again and again. Rare glimpses into her sad life, She hides so well, It almost doesn’t exist. Life is like this, she lied again, And took those lies in,  'Til they became reality. The smile she wears, Is open but darkly shaded, Ready...Read On

My Loving Addiction

How I love her.

I'm addicted to this feeling,  My need to have you near. Like a soothing warmth, it's in my heart, and it casts aside my fears. I'm enchanted by your smile,  and your sweet and tender eyes They keep the darkness from my soul  Even in the darkest night.  I'd be lying if I told you, I longed not for your touch, But it's not your scent or soft caress That my heart needs so much From the...Read On

Regards to the Sincerity of the Nameless

For a time, there was nothing but joy with her.

Well, I've been waiting so long. For someone just like you to come along. I've been through so much wrong, trying futilely to remain so strong. I've been through so much wrong, waiting for someone like you to come along. As the Darkness, it comes over me Swept away, where No-one can see Dwelt in here, for I cannot breathe So I strived, so hard to get out As the Darkness, it entangles me...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

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

Free to Soar

I love you baby...

Looking in the mirror she sees a reflection of her past self. A shy, broken lost insecure girl who lacked self confidence. But that was before she met him. A man that proves to her that all men aren’t the same. He is sweet, kind and gentle although he can be direct, and rough and she still feels safe in his arms. Slowly they get to know more about one another he tells her about...Read On

4 AM. Whiskey Blues

Its dark, 4 AM, and I am drinking again. Trying to wipe her away. Sitting in the gloomy shadows, Not a sound to be heard, but the memories of her, tick around in my head, like some movie playing on repeat. Nothing seems to erase her from me, her laugh, her smile, her words. Another day - another drink. These tears they pour out right. She's been off and running. Doesn't seem she cares...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

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

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 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
