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

Baby it's cold inside

Baby, it's cold inside. I am in great need in a cold land Where bedded warmth covers me In my dreams like desert sand Buried, wholly safe and free.   Before screens, which to the world show Only glass echoes of my heart's beat, I come naked and alone to know How I may give off my inner heat.   Phantoms summoned rise in my mind, ...Read On

Gift Of Om

The fissures of my prose not last, Like cracks of glass my darken past And when dusk lay dust at my pillow, I scribe of my ebony-green eyes. With musing wick of my quill stick As the tallow drips, Surrounded by the lit halo As a shadow to a mime's kiss. Shedding light of my romance, My verses trumpet seduction As the moth's wings flutter, Upon my chest bearing crystal. ...Read On

Out Of The Shadows

A love poem for an on-line lover

In the shadows  For 16 months A secret we kept, Even from friends In this other world Who was to know That your comment On my story Would see us Move so quickly To create our own The conversation Was so natural The curiosity,  Subtle at first, Words unspoken Building anticipation, Filling the space Between our words And so began Our gentle dance Of mutual seduction ...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

I Thought You Should Know

The logical part of my mind has tried to understand you to no avail. You're an anomaly. (Not in a bad way) A star that shines more brightly  than the rest, or a wounded bird that has taught itself to fly again. You're a puzzle, a riddle, an enigma. (But not in a bad way) Your story contains so many delightful contradictions that cannot be, and yet... you are undeniable. You...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

Sense of Love

The Seventh Sense

My lover comes to me All my senses aware She is the only one No other can compare The sight of her warms me A soft glow upon her face Her eyes wistful and calm This vision that I embrace. Her aroma fills me The sweet smell of her hair Wafting of her perfume Smell of love in the air. The sense of tender skin Soothing by lovers touch The feeling of soft silk Alabaster smooth as such. ...Read On

Double Dawg

All smiles from my easy chair, Double dawg by dogs that dare And strings from my heart. As my soul inclines on the wicker straw, Four letter words from chirping sparrows. Beneath the image from my pane, Drawing a hand of a Yarborough, And there upon a lead of glass,  Your eyes observe. Double dawg by dogs that dare, As you wander about my mind's tomorrow, A sachet...Read On

Calescent Love

Undeniable love and affection Is felt where feeling is found. Two people discover connection and Explore a love profound. Strong feelings consume them. Love and passion are felt. Love forms at the stem. Together their hearts melt... Heat and desire Burn in their hearts, Calescent, just like fire... Slowly, then faster, ignition starts. Passion is felt here, Bodies entwined together....Read On

Color Me This Holiday

Color me red and color me green Colors of the season for some Agree or not, just get what I mean Symbols are just that to more than one Snowflakes, bells, crosses and creches Meaning to some but not to others Holiday/Christmas lights, parties and dresses Friends, laughter, love, hatred can't smother Isn't now the best time, is another better Give a kiss, a hug, share a laugh or two ...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

Life's Hallway of Doors

Us....again

I watch my hand grasp at the knob of a familiar door In the moment … how I arrived here is unclear I had only turned to look back, to see if I could catch a glimpse, just heartbeats before Sure I had been moving forward, confused that my outreached hand lands here In the moment …how I arrived here is unclear Everything feels like it always did, as if that door was never closed to me Sure...Read On

Good Morning baby

To Jane, with love

Every morning as I awake I turn and watch you sleep. I slide out of bed and go to the kitchen without making a peep.  Coffee, toast and fresh fruit I place on your breakfast tray. I walk back in and I see that smile that says, let's play.  I place the tray to the side and to the edge of the bed you go. Face down and ass up I massage your cheeks nice and slow.  A nice little slap as I...Read On

Lament of a Man in Pain

A poem I wrote when I was between relationships, trying to decide how to handle the transition

Whatever I do, Wherever I go, Someone I love, or someone I know, Gets hurt, by me, so what can I say? When my every move, and my every way Is painful to Someone. I wish that I could be the good man, That people around me keep saying I am. I don't see how it could be that they see, What I can't see, a way that I can be. It's not who I am. Why should I try, to love anyone, When there is...Read On

Day Dreaming

I'm sitting looking at my lap top, But yet not really seeing it. My mind is racing through The many conversations we've had. Some long and Some just a hello, how are you. I've only known you a short time. Yet it seems like I've known you forever. We met by pure accident, Or yet was it meant to be. We became friends instantly And began to chat every day. Some conversations were serious,...Read On

Clinging

I find myself clinging onto you, Onto everything you are, Everything you were, Everything I miss. You have moved on, Yet my heart is stuck, And that it something, I cannot defeat. I gave everything I was to you, For you, In the hope of you, And now I am lost. So I cling to the memory, Of you, You I still love, Though you no longer love me. You let go of everything we were,...Read On

Silver Lining

Out of hardship, they found happiness

We met at a time when we were both facing difficulties, after having being hurt and shedding many tears. One day we started talking, learning, sharing, and growing closer as we gradually become friends. We started sharing more personal details as we grew even closer. Now we comfort and support as we are each other's confidant. Then one day we pulled one another closer, shared a...Read On

How Can It Be Me?

How can it be me, When I don't know where I stand? How can it be me, When I shy away from love's demand? How can it be me, That you choose to call your love? How can it be me, When I stop my good for bad? How can it be me, When I have gone wrong before? How can it be me, That deserves such love from you? How can it be me? Because darling, I just don't see....Read On

Heaven Sapphire

Adonis awaiting your command mi-lady...

Beyond a mortal man impassioned far, At these voluptuous accents, he arose, Ethereal, flushed, and like a throbbing star, Seen 'mid the sapphire heaven's deep repose, Into her dream he melted, as the Rose  Blendeth its odor with the Violet -elixer sweet: Meantime the frost-wind blows Like a lover's quarrelled rage Against the windowpanes; MidKnights' Moon hath set Within your...Read On

Frozen

I'm frozen. I cannot be thawed, It's forever winter for me. For my heart has been overtaken. I cannot feel my hands, They have stuck to my sides. My feet have stuck to the ground, I have lost all I loved. My soul speaks to no one, There's no one for me to miss. All have gone away, My mind is forever in stasis....Read On

They Said to Me

Heinlein was wrong. Music is a harsh mistress; not the moon

She said to me, “I am leaving you, so you can play music without guilt.” I looked at her, and then I went to play a concert. They said to me, “We are taking away your job; you can’t afford to play music.” I looked at them, and then I went to rehearsal. They said to me,”You haven’t any heat in your house; you can’t afford to play music.” I looked at them, and then I put on a sweater and...Read On

Land Of Caribou

Missing my eternal sleep, by the touch of a halo  and swallowing my pride, by turning over a leaf in the land of caribou. With the nib of my pen and scribbling new threads, becoming sentimental on falling snow. For whom the heavens shine, romantically incline, sweet kisses and wine, and cuddling my woo. Beneath the midnight sun  in the land of caribou, with dreams...Read On

Love Is

love is not about control, love is about freedom x

“Love is” (Love is) not about control, Love is, about (freedom) Love is, not about knowing all, Love is about craving the secrets. You watch a bird feeding on the lawn, And know it is beautiful, And desire its beauty. But you cannot know its inner soul, It is no less perfect. Inside, it has its demons Its demons hidden so well, That if you think You...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

Spun Sugar and Caramel Cream

…and tufts of wild grass that whisper all day

Playful bright pinks and soft pastel blues, Tangerine sherbet on the horizon infuse A palette of evening hues Which your heart and soul embrace with delight, The majestic display of the eventide light. Watching a consumed sun cast its last dying rays Igniting cloud wisps in an empyrean blaze, A final act of the day, That washes gold sunlight so warm on your skin That you eagerly relish it like...Read On

Coincidences

...I don't believe in them

I don't believe in coincidences I do believe in love I think we've been put together By the man from up above Whenever I see you near My heart begins to flutter I think you are the one my dear We go together like jelly and peanut butter I know about the others I've seen them hang around like flies Simply put, I see their true colors I've heard all their lies So when they...Read On

The impossible dream

I have been “not enough..” I have been “too much..” I have been “if only..” But deep within my very core I always longed to be “just right..” Becoming his opened my eyes To something new, Made me see what I needed, What was possible, Giving me what I thought only lived in dreams. He touched me and my body ignited,  Flames flickering over my most intimate parts, Want, need, a...Read On

White Knight

Even vagrants live by some golden rule That love makes one act like a fool Or that money isn't what makes the man I'm just a poor boy wearing a poetic heart On weathered sleeves unraveling apart And I just don't seem to give a damn My love for you is like no other What you certainly won't get from any ol' lover It's the kind you read about in fables I am your white knight with greying...Read On

Lies

Why do you pretend to care? Your eyes are full of lies You swore you would never lie again Yet you broke your promise to me You put on a brave mask Thinking no one can see your true self But I know you’re secretly afraid Always trying to be someone you're not You pushed everyone away Now you sit there alone and scared Not a soul around you To listen to you cry ...Read On
