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

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

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

This Never-Ending Cycle

One look was all it took Before I felt myself fall again. It happens all the time, This endless cycle. I fall, I break, I heal. You come, you smile, Whisper to me your sweet poisonous words. I get sucked in, and the cycle starts again. How you have this hold over me, I'll never understand. This addiction, The need to be near you, The need to hear your voice, To feel...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

The Sound

When I hear the sound of your voice on the phone it excites me. When I hear the sound of your heart it makes mine race. The sound of your breathing calms me and warms my insides. The sound of your footsteps brings a smile to my face. The sounds of your clothes against your skin as they come off; Get me aroused. The sounds that you make as we make love, making me want more. ...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

She has a date

When I learned Ruby had a date.

It starts with an idea; sublime torture... the bluntest of instruments. Think of apricot marmalade, with a touch of crimson cayenne, spread slowly about a nipple and over the folds of an areola. Think of the sun making it melt and wafting its scent to the bees. Think of the sweat that bleeds salt and distills the pepper to pucker. A bee hovers and buzzes seeking...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

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

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

Unit

I thought that you knew, We worked better as a unit, Two of us as one, Not adding a stupid third wheel. Its like when you learn to ride a bike, (Cough)   Not  when you become one, Your training wheels are good to start, But eventually two wheels is enough. Like a plug and a socket, A necklace and a locket, Two things fit together just right, Kind of like a switch and a light. So...Read On

Goodbye

my goodbye

Goodbye my love,  Goodbye my heart... I hope that she will love you like I do... Goodbye to my soulmate,  Who made me open my eyes,  Who taught me where I stand... Who showed me what it means to feel beautiful,  I hope that she sees,  Just how wonderful you are,  I hope that she understands you... But most of all I hope that she shows you just how special you truly are. ...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

The Collide

For someone who is always on my mind.

Everything dims around me, a bulb's filament fading fast, the light along warm bodies cautiously receding when we reach for one another, our naked shapes like two darkened continents afloat, struggling to collide in our new forms. Consuming me now as much as the first time I tried to unravel your mysterious layers, the clues and fissures bringing us closer to entwining, closer...Read On

Patchwork Hearts

Over the course of one's lifetime our heart changes shape,  it evolves and transforms.  Once untouched,  unbroken in its entirety  an unblemished, whole beauty. Somehow beyond our comprehension,  defying all we know of logic,  through heartbreak it becomes  even more beautiful,  weathered and worn,  so delicate yet so strong.  I think of my heart as a frayed edge quilt,  wove of...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

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

Remember

Do you remember when we met Or have you started to forget It's been so many years ago I wonder if it's yes or no You took me to your secret place Above the mundane world in space A tower built to watch for fires I thought my love would fill desires You never left my heart you know Not even when you let me go And pledged your troth to someone new Rejected I still pined for you He flashed...Read On

Winter Tanka

Venceré

With trust in her all goals may be achieved,  Because her faith can conquer all your fear. Forgetting all the times you may have grieved Your life will leave behind all throb and tear. With gentle touches bravery will grow,  To persevere when doubting may arise. A woman's soul is full of strength, and so,  You find your courage deep within her eyes. With modesty she fills your heart with...Read On

Poetic Fancy

With a will of my quill I spun  A dream from the dusk just past As your breasts soothe my flesh I dreamt a lyrical tune... Antebellum Lea Of poetic fancy and delightful tea As she smiled with blushing cheeks Kissing my chest on the plains of my heart As her fingers caressed my penis... Antebellum Lea Beneath a wash of the morning dawn With golden rings we will wed As...Read On

Impressive

Impressive. I am trying to be impressive. I want you to be impressed. Please, understand. I need you to think highly of me. I need it so much, because you are perfection. And I want to impress the perfect lady, The perfect lover, The perfect one for me. I want to impress. It is not certain yet. Not certain because we just met. We are tentative, groping, and searching. Trying to find...Read On

Sadness

Does time really heal, even a shattered heart?

She isn’t devastated anymore. She isn’t rolled up into a tiny ball, Unable to get up, to leave the house. She sleeps, dresses, eats. There is a smile on her face more often, At times it even reaches her eyes. She isn’t torn apart with grief now, Shattered by the goodbye out of nowhere, But the sadness still lingers inside. When darkness falls, Little voices...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

Alone

Twisting and turning, Longing, Her heart aching, Body restless, The bed too big, Too empty, Without Him. His protective arms Aren’t wrapped around her, His warmth, Big, safe body, Not here, Next to her, A shield against the darkness. Sighing, Every part of her, Crying out for Him, Missing Him, Needing, Not sure if she can sleep Without Him. Tomorrow, He will hold...Read On

Like A Sparrow

Like a sparrow I spread my wings, caressing with prose my words sing with quill and feather my verses ring, love songs caroling in the breeze bringing me to my knees. I saw a sparrow fall, high above the trees, as it fell from the blue pudding sky. I pen these tweets true to you, keep warm the nest until my return, like a sparrow I flew beyond the clover with wishes of kisses...Read On

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

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
