the ocean

Her diagnosis should be crippling It should cause her to live in peril Sad and angry at the unfair world It should have jaded her but it didn't Seeing her mortality in black and white It finally allowed her to set her heart free For once she allowed herself to live life Every moment appreciated and savored Collecting beautiful memories just in case Meeting him was by chance and so...Read On

Until

A never-ending love, eternal's gift from you, Like a thread on a spool forever we are twining As the silver lining of our wed quilts our spread, And when the thimble runs over with kisses The buttons that we sewed told our true,  I will be there to share a string to tide me over  Until my life unwinds and the bobbin goes quiet, Burying me with your needle....Read On

Those Two Words

Those two words, how often have I heard them and felt relief? How often have we all heard them and been brought hope? The pain each time I hear those words, they sear my heart with grief. Thoughts of beginnings and ends, my soul I twist into a killing rope. I swim out beyond the shore and waves, now beyond your reach. Salt water fills my ears, the sound of your words I try to drown. I look...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

Once It Was Perfect

Our time together.

Once it was perfect. It started out so hot. Through September and October. We were never caught. Just last December the most intense of all. I thought we finally understood. If we set our priorities yes we would. Unlike in November. When you didn’t think we could. Then January came. It went downhill again. So all of my style. I used then. It took another month. ...Read On

A Lovely Thing

It wasn't but a lovely thing on porch swing some time ago, when I first held your hand when we were teens and the fireflies wink. Then we went steady and you wore my class ring,  many springs ago at the prom  listening to Johnny Cash. It wasn't but a lovely thing, then you took my name and with champagne we danced, on porch we kissed. And then in winter's snow  you left me...Read On

Stripped

Desperate for her love

Lying here alone The dark feels so heavy and cold I can feel all of my insides so ripped out and torn The air is thick with my pain and despair I need you to hold me I need you to care Take me in your arms again and make my icy skin warm Kiss me again and again and make me forget it all Touch me and make me surrender to you Strip me and let your lips see me through my fear ...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

Nightmare Butt-Fuck Song

I loan the naughty version of the Nightmare song below to WIlliam S. Gilbert

When you're lying awake as your butt starts to ache And your sphincter's so sore that it makes you whine, You deserve a rebuke for shoving that cuke Way up there, where the sun can’t ever shine. If you'd used a small carrot your anus could bear it And that, I am sure, you now realize. But up your hole narrow you inserted a marrow Ora vegetable of some similar size. ...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

moments to memories

memories

So much has been made of natural selection And the ladies on Lush cause many erections Now I'm content with what I have And loving her won't cause rehab I dream of her as much as sex And worry about what comes next To have her beside me is all that I need She's hotter than the stories that I'm here to read Back in my wild and wicked days I thought that I knew more than I did ...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

Soft Side Of A Dream

Blinded by a moment's heavenly spent Daydreaming optics nearsighted I vent While in still waters of a poetic ripple A silent soliloquy of a wood thrush While on the soft side of a dream  In the wind chimes of my mind With sentiment of love painting with a touch  On the canvas of an easel with a blinded brush...Read On

Across A Shimmer

Your face is just a shimmer across the water,  a rippling mirror that always tries to find  wherever my reflection chooses to hide,  in the gaps a lens could never quite capture. Where nothing but a cavernous quiet reverberates through the heart's chambers after the final  footsteps across a breaking bridge. I'll never hear the weight of what we were collapsing,  cracking roads and...Read On

I Remember

I remember falling asleep curled around your arm as you drove  Telling myself it was wrong because you weren't mine I was with another yet it felt so wonderful with you I remember waking up your hand on my leg fingers lightly stroking The gentle touch of your lips atop my head made me smile Pretending to be sleeping so it wouldn't end I remember the clarity and peace that...Read On

101 wasted words

We have tonight, my lover said, To write a poem A poem to write Without a wasted word? said I Said I, said I, said I * Precisely so, my lover said,  A hundred words And one besides 'Tis not enough, I fast replied 'Tis not, 'tis not enough * If love were true, my lover said, You'd need but three Just three would do But I would die for you, I said For you I'd...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

Ghosts

Ghosts of the past brush near her as she returns to a place of her past. Fond memories clouded by pain, the hurt she cannot seem to escape. Stuck in darkness, the hollow storms roar, tearing at her as she curls up, in wane she tries to find some shelter, but the stormy darkness is in her very core. There is no way to hide from herself. She waits in silence in hope to gather strength,...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

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

My Song

The sadness of that song you sing Is another way for my life to begin I just don't wanna cause no more pain I just want your life to begin again Without me tearing you apart It's time for me to move on and Sing my song to someone else My song started with a cozy feeling Inside that caused butterflies to fly What a feeling, soft hearts of unbroken love I cant escape the past...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

Was'ents Aware

In my memories I reached back into the archives of my dreams, as if I had lived the essence of you  and the rising tides... eventfully they do. All the while with smiles you cast upon the meadows down below, in tall shadows of our evermore with gentle kisses coming my sway, as clover dance and blow. And I was'ents aware of butterfly sails on wings of colors they do tell and...Read On

Outside

Thinking about the world outside while being in bed with his love.

Outside, people sweat and cannot sleep; and far away, bones grow thin and weak and gums bleed; and, always, somewhere, men are fighting just to keep the dirt they live on, their friends, and the chance to smile; and everywhere, at night, men and women cry and curse the day and ask in darkness; is it better to live like this or die? But when I look into your face, a smile swells in...Read On

A Lover's Doubts

raw emotional thoughts

What do I do with this hurt inside. How do I make things alright. Nothing seems good anymore. I feel lost and alone in a sea of people. Don't want to move, don't want to stay. Just want to be gone. Wish his voice didn't make me want him. Don't want to like him right now. I am still hurt and angry. Didn't want him to call. Didn't want to hear his voice. The voice that feeds a...Read On

Peace

I have found my peace within...

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

Valentine's Day is Over

Poems don't rhyme anymore

You remember the day we met? Once upon a time, down all the years Up along the road .. By my Uncle’s gate Riding your bike back from the town On the wall watching you go by Keeping the smile from my lips Ever the James Dean wannabe .. My persona cracking as you stop Your eyes, your smile, your laugh .. How we danced without music Each stepping to...Read On

A Sailor's Siren

The sea calms my barren soul not a single light shines at this silent hour waiting for my sailor upon the rocky shore the same waves which took to him my plea a message in a bottle, in it my heart and love Daily I await for his return at the old pier for the man who brought back my light Our last kiss with a fearful sigh I gave waving a handkerchief to the wind When the sailor for...Read On

Today My Heart Went Wandering Astray

Today my heart went wandering astray. Containing muscle, valves and blood behind a cage of bone, tissue and flesh. My heart should be able to stay. Unwilling to be restrained, I feel it reaching past my ribs. Unbidden in its search of the food that it needs. Leaving behind a mass that so easily bleeds. Today my heart went wandering astray. Organic brain matter a poor custodian of something...Read On
