Simply ... Us

When I cry, it is your, ... nature that gives me hope. When I laugh, it is your, ... smile that gives me joy. When I think, it is your, ... being that gives me thought. When I breath, it is your, ... essence that replaces air. When you drink, ... it is my spirit that quenches your thirst. When you see, ... it is my beauty that gives you sight. When you listen, ... it is my...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

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

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 Love For Simplicity

A poem dedicated to my love, Simplicity

How often does love confound us?  How often does love perplex?  How often does love confuse us? And how often does love cause stress? I've loved enough times to realize  It's often far too complex.  The battle of wills  And the pain it instills  Often turns joy into vex. What I long for these days is more subtle It's something so easy to say. I long for a love with no trouble  Just a...Read On

Kindred spirits

Somehow, It is like we just met, That it was only yesterday We started this journey we are on. Yet at the same time I can’t quite remember How life was without you, As if I have known you forever. A funny, little paradox, But perhaps that is why Our bond is so strong, Like old souls meeting anew. Though every day, There is also something to learn, To discover about the other,...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

Winter Tanka

the storm within

Winter Tanka Your breath never changed When I touched your feet with mine Laying in our tent You underneath your blanket Like the moon behind her veil And I, more restless than the wind ...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

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

One August afternoon

Memory

To yearn for you is futile, now, Though it may cosset memory; You passed that day down to the brook, But glanced, glanced just once, back at me. And all that August afternoon I dreamed myself beside you there, Your pale legs in the swirly rill, And on the moss your body bare. Traitor to your invitation, I wished away my summer day. Oh, Ellen, by such cowardice, Not you, not you did...Read On

Treasured Dreams

I don't fear the night As it comes writhing in And embraces me  In its welcoming arms.  The whisper of darkness Anchors my dreams  When they're soaring Through the opaque Mist of my mind. Treasured memories Edge into my soul, Fueling dormant desires Aching to be set free again. I fear the light And its insistent sunshine As it kisses my body awake With warm strokes of a new day,  And I...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

Sense of Love

The Seventh Sense

My lover comes to me All my senses aware She is the only one No other can compare The sight of her warms me A soft glow upon her face Her eyes wistful and calm This vision that I embrace. Her aroma fills me The sweet smell of her hair Wafting of her perfume Smell of love in the air. The sense of tender skin Soothing by lovers touch The feeling of soft silk Alabaster smooth as such. ...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

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

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

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

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

Music of My Heart

You are the music in my heart, A beautiful, sweet melody. The most precious tune - that is you, A song I've never known and now I know every note. A playful, soulful song and I hear the notes play softly All through my heart and head, As I hold you close to my body. Our two souls become one. Your love for me is never ending, As my love for you is forever. All my life I've waited for you,...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

Drink Deeply

Conversant erotica converts...

Lesson 1). A Ritual Cleansing: And rain from the Mountain King Shall wash down on you as a nourishing honey mead, Nectar of the Gods, While from the shadows his thunder rod will rise exposed. You'll offer your cave as shelter And bring forth sweet glistening honey dew for his enchantment And forevermore bind him in your spell. You'll milk his steely shaft and sanctify...Read On

Pain's End

For Matthew K. (7/17/91 - 7/8/07)

    There's something about the way you left me I never thought I'd have to deal with this reality And I have to deal with the fact you're not here But I can't seem to shed anymore tears.   You made this hole in my heart And sometimes I have to remind myself to start Breathing.  Over and over; day after day. But the pain refuses to go away People claimed it would...Read On

Pieces of We

Un-pretty little pieces.

Pieces of We I hold your heart in my hands, and it is my own. A broken thing, fragmented and beautiful. A fiercely delicate, dangerously sharp work of art. It is an exquisite glass sculpture. A rich jewel of life and goodness and truth. It has been dropped and stepped on until it's all jagged edges and wicked angles and shards of sweetest, painful love. It is my own heart of...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

He Wants Me?

Can this be real? Are the feeling true?

We meet and chatted I was looking to score You turned the tables In a quest for more Confused and unhinged I followed along Wanting to redirect Longing for my comfort zone The conversation continued With fantasies of hope We talk about futures The thought to elope I always wanted to wait To make sure it’ll last. But the thought of Your penis Of...Read On

Oh My Soul

In quiet contemplation Finding the wisdom to finally rejoice, Oh my soul. Admitting the waste, Reviving the love that never left, Responding with celebration When hearing of the happiness Offered. Once shared,  Simple satisfaction and delight, It was right, But foolishly allowed to melt away. Once said it lives, Exists deep inside, Oh my soul. That will never die, Cannot leave as long as...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

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
