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

Anfractuous Twining's

For destiny will be in her green eyes On attic-salt of her anfractuous twining's In the still of the midnight choir  Over bannisters shining Flowing silently like soft waters In proximity of her sensuality On a pond of frozen dreams As breezes blow through her hair While she dances in meadows at dawn Until the morning's bell rung On attic-salt of her anfractuous twining's...Read On

A Fresh New Start

A short poem for the woman I love

When I first saw you  I knew it was true,  That I would fall  In love with you. For four whole months  You loved me true,  How could I  Be over you? I tore us apart,  With regret in my heart,  But now we’re here  At a fresh new start. You trust me now,  That I see.  Implicitly, explicitly,  Compassionately. It is now my turn  To repay your patience,  To love you forever, ...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

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

Four Elements

Feet splashing in streams, Tripping along with bare feet. Sharing the pleasure. Soaking wet clothing, Drenched with the water of life. Skipping in the rain. Moisture in the soil, Saturating nourishment. Smiles at the blooming. ~~~~~ Clouds across the sky, Blown by winds unseen by eyes. Storms appearing soon. Breathing in the air, Our atmosphere is heady. Sweet exhalations. Lovers...Read On

Notes From the Frontline

It was a moment of weakness You caught me in; It was nothing but a frenzy of emotion, Taking me down. Yet you think so much of yourself now, Don’t you? You see it as a coup, When it was nothing more Than good timing for you (And the worst of it for me). Trying to deflect Your acrimonious scoldings; Hoping to escape the Sanctimonious speeches. What could you do When I just stopped listening...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

A Pawn No More

“Every pawn is a potential queen.” ~James Mason

I will play the pawn  For others no more. Never again be used  To settle a score. Make a lover jealous Or fill a void. Valued only for how I can be employed. So easily manipulated, Sacrificial and weak. Passive accomplice To the havoc they wreak. Yet, somehow survived To cross the board. The endgame nears, I’ve earned my reward. Promoted to queen, Most powerful piece. ...Read On

Escaping Reality

Lovers breaking the chains of reality.

Reality quickly disappears Taking away all our fears Daydreams so very sweet Surf crashing at our feet Palms clasp hand in hand Toes nestled in soft sand Gazing into each others eyes Happiness will be our prize Soft music drifts on the wind Images and sounds combined Past wounds healed gone away Hearts warm now safe to play Simultaneously higher we climb Hallucinations held fast...Read On

Kissed You Naked

I kissed you naked

I kissed you in the hallway and kissed you naked on the floor, I kissed you in the kitchen and kissed you naked near the door, I kissed you in the morning and again by silvery moon, Kissing you naked always causes me to swoon. So leave your scanties in the hallway and your bra upon the door, Place your nipples on the counter and your feet upon the floor, Sex me in the evening beneath a...Read On

Compass

A small poem about a compass

Life is a thirty two point compass, all heading in different ways. You make the choices that you do and live like this your days. Each decision leads another thirty two, because you can always then go back. But the path gets more complicated, as the turns begin to rack. When our compasses intertwined, an orbit they did make, Each decision made together, and the same...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

With Whispers We Are Guided

With whispers we are guided on our quest  While moving down the trail to tranquil peace. Our hearts have heard the murmur of a guest. Until we reach our goal it will not cease. We two, as lovers, bound eternally Will make our way to earthly paradise. Thus, pointing out our path internally, Our guide has always given true advice. Preparing us for what may be our fate The inner voice has...Read On

Thinking of You

a little doggerel for a special friend

I was thinking of you today In words I prob’ly shouldn’t say. Or, if said, just in a hush Because they’d make most people blush. Or maybe Yiddish; what the heckie Say I was playing with my schmeckie. And though you’re really far away, I still want to jump your bones today. And now I’m growing such a stalk If I stand up, I can not walk. I'll keep poking into things: The backs...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

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

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

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

The Thousand Faced

Of love found, of love lost, of love found again.

I see you in the aethereal light And in the deep solemnity of night, Goddess of a thousand names and faces, Ruling over many times and places. I often pass you on the streets by day But only seldom do you glance my way. You hide behind unblinking, glacial eyes, Out on those city streets when in disguise. Yet I know your smile and your tender kiss, I have watched your...Read On

Penance or Punishment?

Which path should I take?

Five years ago I made a mistake, one I shall always regret. A mistake of the heart, not of the flesh, but irrevocable in its guilt and shame. For five long years I've been on my personal Elba, such is the fate to which I am damned. No closeness, no love, no sign of emotion from my companion, only ice. I know that my own deeds put me here, my actions sealing my fate forever. You...Read On

Cabaret Girl

A predatory stripper uses young men

The backstage pass Came as a surprise You wanted to see me I had to surmise Our eyes were locked During your set While you stripped bare My appetite, whet I was only eighteen Never been to a show You, twenty-three Used to the flow Young men were your passion In cabaret bars Where you'd flaunt your wares Building memoirs I pushed through the curtain Of your dressing room You stood...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

Between Us

You wandered through the years,  from heart to broken heart,  the light once placed so gently inside you  becoming fanned fires getting ready to torch,  sweep over with nothing but love. There was a dark divide between us at times,  a quiet we did not know how to occupy,  but words can be as damaging as prolonged silences, sounds shaped around what we can say better  with the breath...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 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

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

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

As You Desire, As You Request... My Fire

And so as you request, thy desires I offer to fulfill to thrill.

I present to thee as ye to me,  A history of form and function,  A perfected him before perfect her,  We both do dare this juncture of dance  Where layers lay bare to caring stare and circumstance, And strum of digit, hum of lips,  Sips from dripping honeyed hips, Our offered symbol, confident trust,  Swaying thus a gentle thrust,  As God intended, all is splendid… harmony. ...Read On

New revalations

to a friend who has opened a door for me....

My control your desire Your pain My pleasure Our trust in each other Punnishment for pleasure Tears of pain becomes Tears of pleasure Bound and gagged Lust for more Temptation to become sore My thrill your wish My climax your goal Chained together our souls My command you must obey I am the Master as you are the slave you feel controlled but safe.......Read On
