Our time

Time spent together, shared in the most intimate way. Words themselves fail to capture their full meaning. In an ideal world we are all that we can be here for each other. Miles apart, closer in my heart than I had expected. It crept up on me so subtly, and pierced my inner self. Shattering all, it was a drastic realisation. The idea of love came to me and I felt each sharpened...Read On

Light And Dark

Every gust of wind is an icy blade, cold fingers crossing and dragging along everything that made my heart beat for you. I know how to keep it all inside, and let others write my side of the story, because I'm already too busy sealing myself away, stitching closed all the places that once wanted to let someone inside, where I could give what was left of me. The sides that were light and...Read On

I See Her

Inspired by today's trip

Loading up my camper Looking at my bed I see her Moving down the highway My mind now flowing free I see her Canyons attract my gaze Chaos combined with beauty I see her Mountains loom around me Mysteries hidden in them I see her Dark Clouds on the horizon Depth beyond my vision I see her Raindrops upon my windshield Reminding me her wetness I see her Wind blows...Read On

I Thought You Should Know

The logical part of my mind has tried to understand you to no avail. You're an anomaly. (Not in a bad way) A star that shines more brightly  than the rest, or a wounded bird that has taught itself to fly again. You're a puzzle, a riddle, an enigma. (But not in a bad way) Your story contains so many delightful contradictions that cannot be, and yet... you are undeniable. You...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

Lust is not forever

His breath against your lips, hands interwoven, ankles together. Skin burning against skin, You can forget just for a moment. Your past falls away, you are scar free You can ignore the whole world And the life that awaits you after you leave his bed Instead, there is just this gentle kiss His cologne is all you smell, his lips are all you taste His skin is all you feel, brushing against...Read On

Four Remembrances

Remembering being young and in love...

Cafe, dancing girl, rich girl and Romeo, Cigarettes, whisky, cheap and grainy video, Neon, moonlight, long past midnight In Paris where, Syncopated second line And dancing to the ragtime, Make her head spin, And she though always splendid In silk and lace, Hides her beauty in another place. -  Riverside, fairground ride, laughing girl and Romeo With little...Read On

Faith In Love

I'll fall in love again

Broken hearts and open wounds are my reward for love. Holding hands and treasured memories, Causes my heart to soar like a dove. When I am thinking of you, and thinking of me, I know my love was true. But you went new places and saw new faces, And you wanted someone new. So I'll bandage my heart and be on my way, Shedding a tear for the past. It's time to move on...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

In the Eye of the Storm

Here you’ll find me, Waiting in the eye of the storm, Here you’ll find me, Waiting because that’s my norm. I hope you bring safety, To keep away the pain, I hope you bring safety, Because alone I can’t take the strain. Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m right, Maybe I’m wrong, Help me through the night. I beg you give love, Because I’m running low, I beg you give love, I can’t...Read On

Love's last quatrain

Occasionally, even little pigs may recognise pearls amid their sty

I built a poem from Lego bricks Perfection! Not a hole to fix Each room I filled with emptiness Each plastic rhyme with hopelessness * Hey, lover! (who builds poems from sticks) I built a poem from Lego bricks He read, his face - a doleful mask - Proclaimed I had not met the task * 'To beat the wolves, my lover dear Do more than to the rules adhere I built a poem from...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

Day Dreaming

I'm sitting looking at my lap top, But yet not really seeing it. My mind is racing through The many conversations we've had. Some long and Some just a hello, how are you. I've only known you a short time. Yet it seems like I've known you forever. We met by pure accident, Or yet was it meant to be. We became friends instantly And began to chat every day. Some conversations were serious,...Read On

Thoughts

She needs to be held, Feel protected and safe, Like she matters, Is treasured by him. She wants to be seen, To be heard, understood, Her feelings respected, Not made to feel guilty for them. She longs for his desire, To share passionate kisses, Tremble for him As he enjoys her body. She tries to please him, Make him happy, even proud, But she can only be herself, Anything...Read On

for a special person who knows who she is

A new year rolled around And tomorrow it’s time To send a little note; Maybe something in rhyme. That I love you, you know; You have known all the time. Do I dare to believe You’d be my Valentine? ...Read On

Retrouvailles

The joy of reuniting with someone after a long separation...

Your thoughts arouse sweet temptations, sending A wave of quiet rapture rippling through my heart, My body yearns for your delicate caresses, The last dance we had lingers on my mind. You make me quiver, I go weak at the knees, The sparkle in your eyes enthrals me, The midnight calls to murmur sweet nothings Saying, 'I love you' in your mellifluous voice. I remember the dulcet tones...Read On

Your Hands

The light from the stereo fights the darkness. Music? Anything will do. It isn't meant to entertain, merely to muffle my cries from the neighbor with her ear to the wall. The thought of your hands is maddening. I crave them beyond all reason. The feel of them on my breasts, kneading, pulling, twisting, pinching as pain and pleasure become indistinct. Your hands, demanding access, prying open...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

Attraction Divine

Rays of long blonde curls Scent of sweet perfume Attraction followed distraction Drowning in blue almonds Butterfly in tummie whirls Lust contracting womb Her fingers taking action Sliding through my Venus highlands In union tongues twirl Weir of lust torn down Flooding fingers in reaction Glistening like diamonds Hungry tongue ready to unfurl Head disappears under her gown...Read On

Treaty of Taonga

Because the dance of words can be as erotic as sex itself..

And I rage for Tino Rangitiratanga How strange it is that I remember a line I read so very long ago. "Bees in Mykanos hum in a minor chord" And I am still here in this unsteady place of ebony water and bull kelp. From where I stand with spine to rope, I catch her in the act. Head tossed to a throaty warble- eyes closed- Undisturbed by silence or squall, undisturbed by the...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

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

The Many Faces of Look

We look with our eyes but see with our mind.

The Many Faces of Look There is the look that you get when you are bad Then when you are good too There is the look you get when you are sick Then when you are feeling great There is the look that you get at night Then the look in the morning There is the look on your lover face when making love Then when you are cuddling afterwards There is the look you get when...Read On

Silk

The ties that bind...

It isn’t silk binding your wrists It’s opportunity It isn’t leather around your ankles It’s a welcoming It isn’t a metal bar parting your knees It’s encouragement It isn’t linen arching your back It’s authentication It isn’t cotton pervading your mouth It’s silence It isn’t just suppression It’s cotton saturating your impertinence It isn’t just endorsement It’s...Read On

The Great Asterisk

It wasn't but a lyrical, When I had but a thought unwritten, By the tides of the moon, I embraced you, Yet I still loomed, the great asterisk. A verse, a stanza, anything admitting, A comma of true, Wishing you to stay the course, Of this poet, a dark choice. When I was but ink in the well of the quill, Something for me to eye before I inked, I was but a lowly noun, a...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

The one that haunts your dreams.

The One That Haunts Your Dreams I'm the one that haunts your dreams The one that teases your fragile mind Such a dark and charming mystery Where nothing is as it seems With me excitement you will find Washing away your mundane misery I tease and tantalize your senses I fill you with wonderful pleasure You dream of my dangerous touch With my delicate kiss your skin it tenses With me of a...Read On

Kisses I send You

So happy you're back

Wanting to run

Tonight she wanted to run. Far away, never return. Overwhelmed by the past  Memories burning like acid  Stinging and destroying in its path  Corroding, disintegrating Maybe it was wrong to return, Seeing it all over and over, Remembering what was once hers, But never to be again. She thought she could find her own quiet corner, Co-exist, hidden behind thin veils, ...Read On
