Broken

Time to pick up the pieces and move on

On the highway of life We have ridden for awhile But no longer do thoughts of you Make me want to smile Anger, pain and resentment As I see you sitting there Ignoring me and everything Anymore, I just don’t care I’m searching, seeking a way out To make this somehow fair Because thoughts of forever Fill me with despair How did we get here? To this angry place Now all I can...Read On

We Are The Ones That Will Make This Day Real (Revisited) or Part 2

a forever love reawakened

Menorca. The shimmering heat of passion again, The rat tat tat Of Latin passion, Where a black cat, and a black beetle, Share the same path with me, In the heat of the summer sun. I walk, Remembering (us) So many years ago. And still I love your smile, And your eyes, so full of desire, And your laughter (which is us) And forever (which is us too.) Fiesta. ...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

Faraway Falls

I hear the fall of faraway falls, the rushing of rapids and my pulsating soul shhh-ing me.  Oh! the beauty of it all like life's salt shaker,  raining down seasons of year... then its Autumn. What love we snare  from fables and lore and I in dreams,  of the falling of the falls. I see snow on God's green turf life a quilt of warmth,  the meadow lay dormant  as the frost gives in....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

It Was Always You

So I hid my love away Like mail that arrives in far flung lands No return address....Neither lost not found I felt more love for you than was ever shown And you held on with hope, waiting, Only one day to let go. As you walked away I waited for you to look back Then I worried that I'd blown my only chance. You moved along to that bleach blonde girl Simple, not so complicated...Read On

Fallen Hard

This is one of the many love songs I have written... It's the first one I'm really sharing, I have only shared certain lines to 1 other song, but this is the first whole song I am sharing with anyone besides me... You came along, Walked right into my life, You sat down, Made yourself at home, In my heart. My weaknesses my flaws, You seem to love it all, You laugh with me, You...Read On

Blank Page

Where will my story go?

Sitting staring at the pages my mind at ease, but empty. The past written down, The present... me here. My quill upon the clean page, A smile upon my face, The breeze, soft and crisp. It is the cool of spring. These words are dedicated to those people who were in the early chapters, companions of my life.   Good, bad, teachers, angels, but eventually executioners of my life. ...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

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

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

Rebuilding

She wants to feel whole again, But she doesn’t know how. She needs to regain her happiness, Feel she has some worth Though life has made her think differently. Where do you start When everything is in shatters? He saw her struggles, Said He would lead her. With a kind and firm hand, He helps her breathe, Find enough calm to start rebuilding. Piece by piece...Read On

With Whispers We Are Guided

With whispers we are guided on our quest  While moving down the trail to tranquil peace. Our hearts have heard the murmur of a guest. Until we reach our goal it will not cease. We two, as lovers, bound eternally Will make our way to earthly paradise. Thus, pointing out our path internally, Our guide has always given true advice. Preparing us for what may be our fate The inner voice has...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

Vampire Moon

Forever... and then where?

The roses tattooed across your tan thighs, Undying ink beneath your smooth skin Will remain, remain Until we die, And then, where will we be? The pier, deserted But for you, A vision in your tight black dress, Red lips, dark hair, Each time I look at you, You haunt the salt white boards There, beneath the vampire moon. And what of you, my love On...Read On

The sad clown

In memory of a gem, may he rest in peace.

Once in a while The world gets gems, People who shine, In talent, wit, intelligence and heart. He was one of the few, A clown to make us smile, Always bringing laughter, Hope to those in despair. But who makes a clown smile When his world gets too dark? A broken spirit and fighting body, Who lights his way back? In the end no one could. The clown sleeps, Tired of pain,...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

Perfect

I’m looking in the mirror, trying to figure out If the way I look now works or not. I feel uneasy, it doesn’t look like me I wipe off the lipstick and let my hair flow free. I told you I wear jeans and that sometimes I slouch But now I look like someone you’d fuck on the couch. You’ve never seen me, I’ve never seen you This is a big deal for us two. I walk on the street; it’s...Read On

Doubt

Tell me; don't tell me

Pecking, pecking At my brain She has a smile so pretty - Tapping, tapping In my head I have to know: "who is she?" Searching, searching On the net - What is their connection? Scrolling, scrolling Through the blogs Tortured by the tension - Looking, looking Instagram Is that his arm around her? Show me, show me Facebook friends The answer in a post there - Say it, say it Pinterest page What...Read On

Silence

The sound of silence...

The silence of your voice is deafening Its absence deeply felt is extreme Your thoughts are a jumbled mess I cannot decipher what you mean The haunted look within your eyes Fills me with a profound ache Your body shaking and the copious tears Are often more than I can take Your obvious dejected posture So heartbreaking to see I really wish that you would Unburden yourself to me ...Read On

Light

Light like the sun Light like the spring Soft touch of his light Feels like a dream Light as a breeze Light on my feet He makes my heart dance Spin in his heat Light shines so bright Light shows me the way Even in darkness His light shines a ray Light as a feather Light in his hands Warm desire is felt From way deep within Light as a whisper  Light footsteps...Read On

Counting Stars

We lie here, Side by side, Looking up. Vast dark sky, Lit by tiny points, Twinkles everywhere. Cat and Turtle, Unexpected sisters, Big and little. You hold me, Safe by you, Trusting. - Cuddled against you, Held by your side, Held in your heart, Counting stars. You came from nowhere, So did I, But I like nowhere, It brings me good things. I wouldn't be without you, Batcat of...Read On

Desire unrestrained

It's only getting harder The longer this goes on.  Who knew our encounter Would evoke feelings so strong? In me at least.  This can't be wrong.  Inside, outside your beauty is clear.  The question is where can I go from here.  Yes, I'm addicted to you. ...Read On

Love Through The Wires

Sometimes, dreams come true, People find each other, Across the wires, That connect them over the distance. They fall for each other, Head over heels in love, But they will never touch, But their minds will. Where hands can't touch, Skin won't meet skin, But minds will find solace, Together deep in love. This love is the case for us, We lovers over the wires, Feeling...Read On

The Death Of A Friendship

A friendship dies.

The death of a friendship is an ugly thing, you feel its cruel sting. The spot they held feels empty and cold, missing are stories untold. The times you shared, the way you cared, memories lost, all just tossed. The death of a friendship is hard to swallow, it makes you want to scream and holler. Everything undone, as you watch the setting sun. Promises made, promises broke, the...Read On

Words and A Thank You

A heartfelt thank you to everyone here, both authors and readers and those who run this site

The power of words, an often very familiar subject matter for poetry and prose. The choice of words and the community of Lush is what I wish to examine for a short time here. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, the choice is a never ending list. For from now I'll just use the word rose. I know some words have power over me, my feelings, my mood and can even incite some fear. How has this come to be?...Read On

When you Love

it always lives within

When you love You give your heart and soul Unconditionally, it's something you can't control You spend your waking moments thinking of him Knowing that soon In his arms you will swing At night when I lay in my bed It's images of our love tryst I remember and blush a faint red In my dreams you wander at night I toss and I turn reaching for you, to hold on tight When I...Read On

The Distance Between

Shall I desist and let it go, or should I beg on bended knee to be forgiven. For what, I ask it over and over again, and still no answer comes, none makes sense. Hard to comprehend, hard to decide, knowing I have done nothing, and yet, I did something else why the distance the irreconcilable distance you place between us. Stars are dying, have died and yet have not left the night sky....Read On

Touch Of Lingo

As the touch of lingo sheds to light, Like sea meadows, the umber waves of wheat. And there I will settle and tattle my tweets, For thee my love I shuck the corn And compose a poem from stalks of many. As the touch of lingo sheds to light,  The whiff of a breeze from your auburn hair. And there on the plains of Abraham we kiss,  Poetically dancing in the moonlight of bliss, ...Read On

Walk With Me

Take my hand and walk with me Along paths we’ve not yet covered Destinations of which we have dreamt And hope one day to discover. Cadillac Mountain overlooks Frenchman Bay Acadia’s carriage roads call The Merced River flows past El Capitan And Yosemite’s Upper and Lower Falls The Grand Canyon’s floor becomes our bed Under a blanket of stars in the sky The expanse of the heavens laid...Read On
