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

You

Worry too much...

Brighten the day, Lighten the load, Inspire the mind, Provoke giggles. Sing like an angel, Smile and the world is right, Deliver hope always, Excite with delight. Strum the heart strings, Awaken strong passion, Dust off old thoughts, Give rise to new ones. Make me wonder, See the beauty in all things, Worry way too much, Spice up life....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

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

A Wisp Of Mint

As if a dream, an opus it seem An opus of romance we shared In haze of summer daze Now I suffering melancholia For it wasn't but a fortnight hence Before the calling of last tense And sometimes past I gasped Of times together we spent  And now all is naught  Hovering above my closing eyes The shadow of a broken halo  A lost breath in disguise As love cries, my balling sighs Now...Read On

Love Is Like a Mirror

Nothing is more mysterious than love.....

My heart is like a mirror Which only contains your reflection Your lips promise me love Your eyes promise me affection If your picture begins to fade Memories remain fresh and strong They make my heart beat faster And my lips utter your song It's such a wonderful feeling Knowing you're so close to me I couldn't imagine life without you It would be unbearable for me The state of my mind...Read On

Letting Go (Holding On)

The hardest part of love is letting go

I started to let go of you For I knew I couldn't hold on. You kept on walking away from me, Your stride was just too strong. I said goodbye to the times we shared And the memories we made. I watched you grow more distant... I watched our friendship fade. I wiped away my tears for you. I knew they would hurt you to see. I tried to keep a brave face on So that you wouldn't feel guilty. ...Read On

Where Did You Go?

No goodbye just gone.

We met online and had a thing One day you just left We never ended our fling I'm really not impressed Emotions you let decide Your decision had no regard for me No more sadness or tears cried I suppose we're both now free I loved you each and every day Today perhaps a bit less I wish you did it another way I guess you were stressed Each day we chatted about life Sweet words crafted...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

How I love

A self promise, and a total surrender

When making love it is with, Abandonment. Tenderness. Desire. Sensuousness. Where love meets, Truth. Responsibility. Fantasy meets reality. How I want love, Joy. Closeness. Ecstasy. Completely. ...Read On

The Om

The om of my all-knowing see even in writing of sensuality, casting shadows on my epitome, my yen taking wind of many sins. And I in dark of my all alone and in quest the everlasting la,  as the whispers in sing bringing silence to my ears. From whence I have sung with revelers of my glee, lost in my Apollo the om of my all-knowing see. With breath of my whew  and séance with...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

Simple Warmth

The chill is setting in  I feel the loss again my life is good I know but I still miss her so It was no goal of mine never meant by design my heart is deep in pain because it's been in vain No more of the laughter that always came after  our sessions of frolic my heart's melancholic How did it end this way what did I ever say nothing seems to matter worlds are going to shatter The winter...Read On

Fragile and Broken

I never asked

I never asked for anything, I really didn't want you to know. Didn't want a commitment, Wanted to take it real slow. Just wanted for us to talk, To share and to learn. To become friends we could count on Before anything else would burn. I didnt want a week or a month, No, I wanted so much more. Wanted to build something to last. Something we could hold on to. Wasn't...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

Sweeter Words

A sprinkling of kindness  makes for sweeter words and better Octobers. When the frost is on the ground. Predawn of the day. A chill in the air  mincemeat with spice like your morning kisses brings happiness to my eyes. When you offer me your lips and smile, along with a cup of coffee. On the apple tree outside, aside the red silo we carve in the bark "I LOVE U," Along side...Read On

sighs

seek passion

this is not a sudden storm  though it may appear so  to those who casually observe.  this is a sigh  like morning's first breath,  deep  and long  and full of you.  its aroma  is every sweet memory  we ever made,  original caresses   hidden among the comforts  of familiarity.  this sanctuary is fertile  nourishing the need  to create new moments,  new sighs,  new orgasms  which will never ...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

She Dines In Early Afternoon

Each lunch she hopes she will meet the man of her dreams

She dines in early afternoon— stirs coffee with a monotonous hand and stares about the room. She watches as she sits alone— a decimal point among the moving figures knowing she’s unknown. She looks into the faces with a stare— hoping one might hold a glance that asks: who are you sitting there? She often wonders should she nod and be alluring, or should look away as if...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

Know That I Am Here

It has been some time and I am still here. Did you think like the others I would go? It will be some time more before you know How much you have meant and how you are dear. Asking for little I stand by your side, Giving with nothing expected from you. Offering friendship is all I can do Because it is all that you will abide. Off in the distance the end will draw near For such as I who have...Read On

A flame

A single candle Flickers in the dark, Its mesmerizing dance Drawing her in. Memories Of her lover’s touch Evoked. The warmth Reflecting off the candle, Like the skin Of her lover, Pressed against hers, Warming her. The candle’s heat And brightness Only paralleled With what she sees In his eyes, As their bodies join In unison. Strength of memory Almost too much To bear,...Read On

Will You Gambol?

Will you gambol along with me? Frolic with glee galore. Playfully romp across the fields of freedom. Frisk about with no thought of embarrassment, No blushes of shame, Cavorting with your lover, Liberated by eager spirits of joy. Will you? I am here and we could be open And happy once more, Just take my hand, We can be released from our existential Madness, Our emotions on exhibition,...Read On

Walking in the Fog of Passion

Come awake, Shake it off, After so much time Lost in dreams that never came true. You have spent your senses  In words to the air, Throwing your reason Into the dust bin Of your consciousness. A cleansing rain of honesty Washes away The fog of besotted lust Unmet and unreturned. Words have power, As you full well know, Manipulating  And playing with them  In ascending  Stairways of...Read On

Euphoria

....panacean touch of a beautiful soul

Loneliness...undo your fist, Let me go. Euphoria is calling. Like a grabby leopard, Melancholy clasped my senses... Chewing me ceaselessly. Wake me up with your panacean touch, Make me believe it was a nightmare! Let me savour the elixir from your lips, Heal my wound, glue the broken pieces again. Euphoria, hold my hand,  Take me away from this gloomy world, To the moony island...Read On

'Neath Our Wings

With God's shadow 'neath our wings In oceans of new moan grass Raining down a gilded glow  Sharing wedding bells quell While caroling a marigold sing Whispering songs and compose In waves of caressing meadows  On a carpet of romantic clover As the morning tides swell  On this day our bands of gold  And gilded vows of prose As bobbin of life's thread begins  With God's shadow 'neath...Read On

Simplest Love

If the simplest love were a spice, My love for you would be a sumptuous buffet Leading you to forget that you were ever hungry. If the simplest love were a color, My love for you would be a vast rainbow Which would illuminate your path to joy. If the simplest love were a tone, My love for you would be an orchestra That would play the soundtrack of your heart. If the simplest love were...Read On

That Something

There’s something about your face  That makes me want to laugh  In a kind of mean-spirited way--  Maybe the freckles half-obscuring your skin  Or the fluffy uni-brow  Perhaps also the distinct crook in your nose  They make me want to giggle and poke at you  Like a child fascinated by something ‘different’  I don’t know why, but I want to laugh  When I see your face. There’s...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
