Where Were You

Where were you  When the love died Did you notice Did you care We are passing like ghosts  Unaware An empty hollow feeling  An echoing shout of sorrow Of loss Fills my very being Bounces off the chambers Of my abandoned core. You encompassed Inhabited Were indwelling for so long But have now vacated And the source The reason The purpose for the change Escapes my vision My seeking My...Read On

Bed Of My Cries

Fractured memories make me cry, When the dew is on the yew And my tears have not dried. As your soul sets sail On a cold sea in November, Leaving me with fractured memories With no words to utter, but a prayer. But in dreams when I lay me down On bed of my cries, I count the memories In the vase of your ashes....Read On

Gray Clouds

Sometime dreams so long ago an opus of romance we shared, in haze of my narrowing days now all that's left is   melancholia.   It wasn't but a fortnight hence and sometimes past I gasped,  of times together we spent  before the calling of last tense. And the shadow of the falling hovering above my closing eyes, love cries on my balling sighs lost breath in disguise. Now times...Read On

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

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

Arrivederci, Rachmaninoff

If I were to run from myself,  Where would I go to lay low? A shadow of my contralto,  In a crescendo, dare I say. Arrivederci, Rachmaninoff,  What better keys to tickle ivories. And what better words to crow, In my betterment if I cry, Infatuated by beautiful eyes,  A symphony of bliss. All things told a world of sticks  And the went of the nigh,  Like a hush of a heavenly host,...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

I Want to Tell You

With a little help from my friends . . .

It is the hour When from the boughs The nightingale’s high note Damn it! Oh god! That’s Byron (I say) The words are not mine It sounded so good I thought it inspired Now I’m depressed I need something new To express how I feel Since I met you Yet each time I write And think “that sounds cool!” Turns out it’s something I studied in school I’ll try it again Breathe deep and stay...Read On

Paths

How she has changed me or freed me... or both

Two paths starting far apart In time and space they do depart One older, wide and straight As if it fears it might be late The other younger, wild and free Just going where it wants to be These different paths one day converge Will they cross or will they merge? The answer now is very clear There is only one path now from here Will the straight and older trail Be the one that...Read On

Unanchored

Drifting without course Unanchored and unmoored Caught up in his wanton breeze I let go and drop the oars I boldly face the breeze Give in and to feel release Fall into his tide Reckless, without heed The shimmer of the sun Casts diamonds on the sea I dip my toe to see the ripple And because it pleases he His sparkling diamonds call to me To fall into his boundless deep...Read On

If It Isn't Me

If it isn't me you're looking for, Then you're just playing with my heart, If it isn't me you're looking for, Then I need a new start, If it isn't me you're looking for, Then it is time for me to go, If it isn't me you're looking for, Before you ruin a work of art, If it isn't me you're looking for, I need to know quite soon, If it isn't me you're looking for, Then I'll sit and...Read On

Paths II

Inspired

Dancing on her path, Dizzy from her winding pace, She crashed right into him, Falling in to his warm strength. He took her by the hand, They let their paths converge. The steady liked the rocky and the rocky liked the steady, That is how the separate paths were merged. They had to cross some rivers, And almost lost their way, Through the darkest nights, When tears fell like the rain. ...Read On

Our Universe

In your precious eyes I see our future, A lifetime to share together. The sweetest love without an ending,  It seems as though time has stopped for us and The universe just keeps right on spinning. Now forever linked, we sing a soulful melody, One starts as the other joins in harmony and Each heartbeat beats as one. Our love is stronger than steel, Reaching from the heavens to All...Read On

Presence

The light your presence made pulls away from my heart, lingering inside and swelling for years, the spaces between promises growing like rings loosening from our fingers. This ghost knows me well, so please do not reach for me anymore, the trails I've made are not yours, your steps only make tremors when walking along darkened roads. In the distance there are still glimpses at the edges,...Read On

Fading Away

I feel you slipping away, Your love is disappearing with each breath I'm taking. I stupidly believed your lies and alibis, Mistaking everything you said for the truth. I gave you all of me, then you've left me with only heartache. Your love is fading away. My heart grows colder, beating slower. I believe that Love is a sick, cruel joke only for those who wish for torment. You never made time...Read On

Valentine

I can’t go very long these days before I get the desire to see her Her eyes, her smile her body I feel an ache, a craving eating away inside of me An itch that I can’t scratch myself I need to feel the touch of she who cares for me and has a similar ache within her self I tell myself I’m my own man again  and I've got places to see and wander through alone Before...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

Cyberlove

is that all there is

Deep in my heart, I know it is too much to hope for ...... So I just take it one moment at a time, And savor those moments. I revel in them. I roll them around on my tongue and I accept them on my palete, like a fine wine. So sweet. So fleeting. So real. But so momentary. Like music; the passage played with such clarity, such passion, such emotion. Then gone. Off to be part of...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

Footprints Of Caravans

Rowing gently on my oasis, Like an inkwell of my mind Leaving footprints of caravans, As my poetry turns to lust. With a branch of the palm As turbines time the wind, Your kiss fills my plate As my prose turns to sin. Rowing gently on my oasis, Leaving footprints of caravans Of oarsmen in the sand....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

Same very Bed!

Dealing with bodies ignoring the soul.

We live together, so close to each other So deep the loving; in between Yet, how close we really can keep together? Walking alike, yet; the path is unknown. Think alike, yet; don’t think us as one. Being prisoned by walls, don’t make us shout out of hatred- Dealing with bodies ignoring the soul. Boundaries of bindings being torn into pieces; Yet a bed is the destiny at...Read On

Breath

Take a breath. Look at me. See my heart. It beats for thee. It took a while For me to find Someone like you, Someone to call mine. I've had it rough. Can't you see I've been crushed? But that's not what you see in me. You're the girl I've been awaiting. So, palms sweaty, My whole body shaking, I will fall. These times are hard, But baby, just maybe, We can conquer all And prove...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

Paroxysm

Paroxysm: a sudden attack, convulsion, or seizure, usually of an emotional or medical nature Call an ambulance, Call a doctor, Call someone who can make me better. "Push fifty epi, On my word, With a little luck we might save this girl." You said "Its over," You broke my heart, People seem to have this down to a bloody fine art. "Whatever caused this severe convulsion, ...Read On

You're Just A Memory

Best of luck to you.

When a relationship ends  The healing can finally begin You were once lovers and best friends You got underneath each other's skin The love was once there Now it's all gone You lose faith and don't care There's nothing left to hold on No tears as this is best A final goodbye is said A dead relationship laid to rest Happiness is now up ahead You're now just a memory Tucked away neatly in a...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

Calliope Tree

Like a carousel turning counter clockwise on an axis of fond memories,  the effervescence of you  beneath wind chimes that sing and calliope tree. In silence your kisses blow enchanting my sins, like sherry stirring my emotions  of soft breath from a decanter and scent of yesterday's wine. Now in caress of carousel rhymes  and sing-a-long times of sugaring kisses, we slide upon...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
