You Are

You are the brightest rainbow After the darkest storm has passed. Bright stars in the midnight sky, The ones I look at when missing you. Hoping that I will see you again soon. A silent moon, on a starless night, Guiding my heart safely home. Tiny whispers on the wind, Telling me you love me again. The gentle warmth of the summer sun, In my garden. An unending field of roses, ...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

Word Songs

When the quill sings my word songs, And the heavens bless me, night long... Whispers of ghost I have toast righteously As the verses define me in slightly undress. With raw nakedness of my poetry, I wish you my fond adieu, And may you walk in my shoe, Feeling steps of raw emotion. ...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

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

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

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

Pain's End

For Matthew K. (7/17/91 - 7/8/07)

    There's something about the way you left me I never thought I'd have to deal with this reality And I have to deal with the fact you're not here But I can't seem to shed anymore tears.   You made this hole in my heart And sometimes I have to remind myself to start Breathing.  Over and over; day after day. But the pain refuses to go away People claimed it would...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

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

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

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

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

Messy Love

Love is a word that defies definition. It is more beautiful than even the most vivid imagination can envision, it is spontaneous, combustible and messy, very messy. Love is not limited by an elementary arrangement of four simple letters. The limitations only arise from our ability to feel the billions of elements that combine together to become one. The definition would have to...Read On

A sad goodbye

With a broken heart Her tears run down her cheeks, Shocked, Devastated, How one moment in time Can change everything. She never imagined It would end this way. He was her ever after, Or so she thought. Cruel twists of fate Made it differently. She can’t do things half-way, Part time. If she can’t be dedicated, Give what He deserves, What He wants and needs, She can’t take...Read On

Seasons

The snow has stopped falling, though my heart remains cold. The day you went away, the tears I cried Flowed like tiny rivers down my cheeks, Like icicles, impaling my heart. I reminded you of someone you once knew, that hurt you deeply, forever changing your future. The seasons change, one blending to the next. I found beauty in your soul, that I didn't want to let go. I loved you, offered...Read On

And I Wish

And I wish I had you here singing your melodious songs to me, Your sweet voice just echoes in the hollows of my mind, And I wish that I could feel your soft breath upon my skin, Teasing and caressing me at once, And I wish that you were here, Making tender love with me, And I wish that you were mine, In every way, But your voice is just a memory, That is playing in my mind. And I...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

Sonnnets to the Vast Unknown

acceptance of life's mystery and the vast unknown

1 Even in this bright and silent sunlight giving me another day to breath and see another dawn, another noon and night, another chance to wonder what will be and question all that comes into my mind and ponder what I’m doing here today, looking at the sky as if up there I’ll find some meaning, some answer, something I can say with any certainty what lies around the bend. And then...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

Stained

Storm’s scent informs me that it is time to go. Drops and drips moisten torn places barely dried-out, dampened,  drenched from the prior encounter... encounters. Pressures graduate from drizzle to downpour. In its midst, I wait for the  you in me to  un-claim,  unbind from the right now exchange... exchanges. Forces subside to a recurrent rhythm.  Your omnipresence is a whet ...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

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

Drink Deeply

Conversant erotica converts...

Lesson 1). A Ritual Cleansing: And rain from the Mountain King Shall wash down on you as a nourishing honey mead, Nectar of the Gods, While from the shadows his thunder rod will rise exposed. You'll offer your cave as shelter And bring forth sweet glistening honey dew for his enchantment And forevermore bind him in your spell. You'll milk his steely shaft and sanctify...Read On

What Is Love?

Learn to understand the word 'Love' before you say it to someone.

What is love? It's much more than a word Four letters long It's powerful in many forms It's often spoken By people in many languages But some still don't understand It's true meaning A fluttering heartbeat Those clammy hands A rush of blood inside Butterflies in your stomach Some believe it's desire A few think it's lust It's neither of those things It's much deeper It's a trust between...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

Ocean's Roar

Gazing at the shore Above the ocean's roar I look upon the moon And long for her once more Waves go rushing in I see her face again And wonder if she'd change My loss into a win It's doubtful now I know Still I did love her so But feelings fade to gray When loving cannot grow Saltwater mists I feel Near shores that still seem real Without her smile so bright My ship has shown its keel ...Read On

Other

I am your lover You insignificant other Your plaything, your muse, your toy Ravage me with your words Devour me with your hands Make me give in to your every demand What you don't get from her you can take from me Half truths and omissions are the reality of my affair What I was looking to gain I suppose is somewhat unfair I long for the affection, to be held, to feel wanted I...Read On
