Wildfire

You came like wildfire

You came into my life like a wild fire  through the dry mountains My heart was drier  than the California Mountains  after a long drought It looked beautiful all green from outside  but was drier inside When you came ablaze  I became yours  you became mine You burn within me  like the fires of the mountains  you have sparked my desire like no one could The...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

From A Pintle

Viewed from a pintle of the looking glass Perhaps I gave too little in samples Poetically in words it was too simple Enough is enough for some people As an ampule of my ink dribbles  And the nib of my pen fiddles All my love in a chalice thimble Enshrined in gilded hymnals  When your breasts pillow my mind Feeling the everness of your divine And my poetry begins to shine With prayers of...Read On

What He Did For Love

What he did for her just because he loved her...

I lie awake missing you Wishing you were here With the news I got today You could help calm my fear. I found out today my love That within me our child grows Ye shall reap what Ye have sown Or so the adage goes. What do we do now? Everyone will know That it is yours, not his When I start to show. How could we let this happen? It shouldn't have gone this far There is going to be...Read On

The Bay Window

When the aperature of my life blinds out the light  And the sirens wink in my waking sleep, I look out through the bay window and see dying kelp As the tides come in on my epitome, Washing away marrow of my bones Lying alone in a box of man made sins With sea chest of confessions scribed with squid ink, Now the sirens caress my wilting image Of remembrances of shadows I have...Read On

A Premonition

Beautiful, Let’s sit, and watch, And listen… To the wind whispering across the water. And feel our flesh, desperate, On each other, With no one but the earth to bear witness. Avenging angel, With her hazel gaze, She smells of the sea, and the sun's blaze. Immortal prince, With his blood red eyes. Entombed in earth, She awaits his rise. Bound by crimson, ...Read On

What He Heard

There is a big difference between what a woman says and how a man interprets it.

I love you she said, I want you he heard. I want you, she said, I need you, he heard. I need you, she said, I love you, he heard. Put your arms around me, she said, Protect me, he heard. Please hold me, she said, Take me, he heard. I’m afraid, she said, Don't leave me, he heard. I hurt inside, she said, You hurt me, he heard. I’m feeling insecure, she said, ...Read On

Pars pro toto

erotic alloy

Pars pro toto. Midnight overature... misnomer concerto. Maestro's, domanatrix baton. Operatic collaboration. Saint Andrews Cross. Inebriated, open inhibitions. Ascertained celebration. Like frost on a mirror, erotic alloy. Precum but droplets on their tongues The eye of vermouth, the olive of truth. I stand, endpin... mahogany cello. Adagio Saraccus Montebello. ...Read On

Fortunately Forrest

Just a shadow I spread of myself, In Fortunately Forrest I stance, 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods. Casting but a nuance of me Under shade of the tree, Wisp of stirring breeze Laying kisses upon my lips. In soft silence, whispering prose, Daydreams I suppose, In time, my mind flight's, Gifts of love I compose. 'Neath the sycamore bounty woods, In arabesque the...Read On

A Long Time Of...

Where once the breezes blew, The winds of times now ail, and new storms brew, Standing lonely hours of truth On bed of my lies, (mediocrity at best...) As your eyes of cat deceived me But I paid the price. Isn't that the way fools spin excuses And spots never fade, (maybe stripes...) Leaving the good of my got crying? On bed of my lies, In my new anointed life of deceit,...Read On

In my arms

For you all...

Here I lay in my bed Cuddling up under my blankets Thinking about you... Wishing Wanting Longing to be near. Able to take your hand Then wrap you in my arms. Just so you know That some one is nearby And you're not facing anything alone!...Read On

My treasure

My treasure

You stood there at my side, when others walked away, not wanting me to be a part. You lent me your ear, when others turned their heads. You lent me your shoulder, when others would not. You took me in your arms, when other pushed me away. You wiped away my tears, when other looked away. You calmed my nerves, and eased my pain, when other enjoyed it. You kissed...Read On

Locked Box

How many years has it been? How many years have passed since I've seen your face?  How many sleepless nights have crowded my life?  On tear smeared pages I write to you my bride. I'm a bottomless pit, an empty hollow of flesh, devoid of all emotional ties and boundaries. That night on the road has left me broken. Taken from me before your time. Food has lost its taste from my lips. ...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

A Little Love Note for You

There will be a time when The precious words will Not form from my lips But, I will still feel them. There will be a time when You will not see me But only feel me And all the love I have There will always be memories Every touch, the caress in the night And the laughs in the lifts But it will happen no more There will never be a moment I don't wish to be back in your arms You...Read On

Thorn

Our lust once divine Our love still a treasure Our souls for ever as one Our beings each others support I want you to be mine I crave for your pleasure I lied, your lust undone I fucked up, my life cut short You I want to enshrine You were my Zephyr You I see moving on You I no longer want to distort My feelings thorn to twine My being wanting closure My mind urging its all foregone ...Read On

Laurel

God of light Whose ego shone Boasting of his strength God of love Who with his bow Plots now his revenge Which power greater Gold or lead? Desire or to despise? Arrows do their targets find Pierced hearts must now comply One chases while the other shuns Entreat; retreat; pursue Matched equally Her fragile lead Holds between the two Yet passion’s heat cannot be quelled Light’s...Read On

Mooncurve

A curve of moon Cast shading Across your sleeping face A distant train Was whistling Sound alone through space Awakened deep in nighttime A chill slipped in the room I pressed myself against you To chase away the gloom And just by merely sleeping Lying next to me My fears evaporated Almost magically Relaxing then beside you The train whistled once more I drifted back to sleep...Read On

I Did As You Asked

I forgot the sound of your voice Its calm and sexy tone  Speaking beautiful words of love, No longer resonates in my ear. The image of your face So handsome and alluring  With eyes that shine so bright,  Is now but a blur. My body doesn't ache For the feel of your skin on mine,  And your magical touch  That so easily filled me with ecstasy. Your enticing scent  Won't stir in me again, ...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

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

Preparing us for what may be our fate The inner voice has...Read On

The Worst Poem Ever

I warned you it's bad.

I am a nerd. That much is clear. Yet every day, I find you here. The love of my life, Maybe my future wife. But before I make this lass my bride, I'll write this geeky diatribe. I don't need the Dragon Balls or the sacred Shikon Jewel. You've already made my wish come true and made me a blissful fool. I would turn down Aphrodite, I would break the Jedi Code, Give up my Batmobile And...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

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

Yonder

While crossing bridges As the prose goes Yonder as the Rubicon flows Never looking back But poetically sounder A passing dalliance shows Keeping my eyes straight ahead When the fire burns in my chest With pebbles of kisses For a love not to be Without floundering While crossing bridges Yonder as the Rubicon flows...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

Beauty

Inspired by two of my great passions

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder I beg to disagree Beauty comes from within It is there for all to see The things that I find beautiful are so very rare They seem so real to me What draws me so to them? They exist so naturally Beauty can be found in people and the natural world Soleil, mountains, rivers They bring my heart such peace And I know my heart is hers What is...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

You Are Mine

They are words to be carved into the marrow, not carefully inked on skin, but another could feel it thrumming through your wrists or if fingers lace with unleashed hunger around your neck It lives in the blood and speaks against any and all premonition, all those who approach the delicate places you've gradually revealed to me. It would be wrong to tell you that I love you, to...Read On
