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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fading Away

I feel you slipping away, Your love is disappearing with each breath I'm taking. I stupidly believed your lies and alibis, Mistaking everything you said for the truth. I gave you all of me, then you've left me with only heartache. Your love is fading away. My heart grows colder, beating slower. I believe that Love is a sick, cruel joke only for those who wish for torment. You never made time...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

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

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

My Love For Simplicity

A poem dedicated to my love, Simplicity

How often does love confound us?  How often does love perplex?  How often does love confuse us? And how often does love cause stress? I've loved enough times to realize  It's often far too complex.  The battle of wills  And the pain it instills  Often turns joy into vex. What I long for these days is more subtle It's something so easy to say. I long for a love with no trouble  Just a...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

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

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

Always in my Heart

For the one I love...

His smile infectious and captivating Women swooned over by his charm His radiance as bright as the sun He is the heartthrob of the moment A girl as bright as the moon Ignorant of his fame  Fell hard for him She has no escape Her life got a new meaning All she wanted was his love But he got carried away Left her, blaming his insecurity She let him go, hiding her tears ...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

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

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

For A Moment

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

Faith In Love

I'll fall in love again

Broken hearts and open wounds are my reward for love. Holding hands and treasured memories, Causes my heart to soar like a dove. When I am thinking of you, and thinking of me, I know my love was true. But you went new places and saw new faces, And you wanted someone new. So I'll bandage my heart and be on my way, Shedding a tear for the past. It's time to move on...Read On

Unbroken

We walk towards each other  Tentative in our steps Wondering if we've hurt the other Our hearts have been in such a fret Quiet words are spoken As hearts sadness begins to lift Yesterday my heart was broken Because I thought you'd gone adrift I am sorry, it's my fault Don't be sorry, the fault is mine I never meant to hurt you  The words are are spoke in chime Do you want to...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

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

Paradox

Beyond the time We should have ended Braced through trials We should have lost Betrayed by those We’ve since unfriended Benefits Versus the costs Reaching out Where understanding Doesn’t seem What we will find Surprised that we Have stayed together Unlike in life Unlike in mind Long suffering We perfect our demons Train them to bay Outside for show Yet past the...Read On

Confliction of Emotion

I'm destroyed... Yet I'm living I'm weeping from endless torment... Yet all I want to do is smile I'm a rotting corpse... Yet I'm as alive as one can be I have so much pent up anger... Yet I'm as calm as a morning breeze I love you so much... It hurts to see you in so much pain My jaded gaze isn't enough to heal you, I know, But I can at least try to help with...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
