Wanting

As I think of you ...

I said it was only lust as we walked hand in hand. The feel of your palm against my palm melts deep within me. Makes me rub my palm to yours even harder.  As I wanted more. I said it was only lust as we kissed lips to lips. The feel of your lips against my lips ignited a fire deep within me. Makes me kiss you even harder. As I wanted more. I said it was only lust as I wrap my arms around...Read On

Sadness

Does time really heal, even a shattered heart?

She isn’t devastated anymore. She isn’t rolled up into a tiny ball, Unable to get up, to leave the house. She sleeps, dresses, eats. There is a smile on her face more often, At times it even reaches her eyes. She isn’t torn apart with grief now, Shattered by the goodbye out of nowhere, But the sadness still lingers inside. When darkness falls, Little voices...Read On

Those Two Words

Those two words, how often have I heard them and felt relief? How often have we all heard them and been brought hope? The pain each time I hear those words, they sear my heart with grief. Thoughts of beginnings and ends, my soul I twist into a killing rope. I swim out beyond the shore and waves, now beyond your reach. Salt water fills my ears, the sound of your words I try to drown. I look...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

I Remember

I remember falling asleep curled around your arm as you drove  Telling myself it was wrong because you weren't mine I was with another yet it felt so wonderful with you I remember waking up your hand on my leg fingers lightly stroking The gentle touch of your lips atop my head made me smile Pretending to be sleeping so it wouldn't end I remember the clarity and peace that...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

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

Little words

Words can be brief, but their echo goes on forever...

Some words carry within them So much meaning, such depth, Modest, little letters put together, Becoming almost sacred in their meaning. A single word can hold magic, Make me tingle with delight, Feel proud and at peace, Make my heart beat out of my chest. Home.. Want.. Mine.. Love.. Small words that mean everything When spoken by a special someone, He that holds my heart, ...Read On

Two

my heart has chosen for me

You did not stop to wonder why Just knew my heart was sad. Many busy in the streets No time to make me glad. Too hurried Too rushed To make my heart Calmed and hushed Many turned their back to me As you reached for my hand. Many on the beach Don't really see the sand. Too insignificant Too small To be that important All in all One bought a diamond But was another made my heart sing....Read On

Everlasting Anymore

A short poem /w light imagery

What's everlasting anymore My heart's a weathered shield My arm without the strength to hold It's fallen in the field And so I dream of days of yore And long for simpler times But as the shining moon doth glow I'll find you on my mind And if I found the words to state Or yet eternity could sate A harrowed mind and swollen heart Broken yet to fall apart And it is this harrowing Keeping me...Read On

Your Angel

One moment with you is all I ask of you. Give me an hour, a minute, a day. Let me love you with all of me and all I am In that moment. Let me be your angel, Covering you with my love, Wrapping my wings all around you, Keeping you safe from harm. Take this time, enjoy it, treasure it. Feel this love, taking it When you leave. Let it radiate over every pore, Seeping deeply into you. Let me be...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

Offering

i am worth the price

You are awake And I come to you With my skin tasting like peaches And my heart  Offering you everything.  Brittle stars sparkle  In quiet and awestruck joy  As you touch my body  And call forth wetness  From this stone. Open flesh begs your entry. I move against you Meeting every caress, Every thrust, Until we both smell like Sweat and sex. You drink me in  ...Read On

Just Once

sometimes in life we are given...

 Just Once I want to touch your body Pretend that it is mine. Just Once Kiss your lips as our tongues Tangle in a dance as old as time.   Just Once Lie next to you as close as can be Feeling your arms, your love, wrapped around me.   Just Once Have your body, over, within mine Feel our hearts, beating in time.   Just Once Lay spent and replete In my...Read On

Luna

Random midnight poem

What is it.. About the moon..  To look above, She makes you swoon. She is so hypnotic, Mystery and unknown beauty. In some ancient language, She speaks of an eternity. Lovers share that same moon, Some nights tears are shed, Crying for the sun, To erase the memory of why we bled. Others lie embraced, Grasping at the light, Touching that eternity, That's only felt...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

i want you

I want you, No I need you, All I do,  Is think of you. I want to be there for you. I want to care for you, I am ready, To be with only you. I want to make this work, I will do everything in my power, To make you happy, In every hour. I will give you my heart, Please choose me, And give my lonely heart, Some company....Read On

One Stop Solo

Awake me from my last sleep While I rest on pillow-down Anointing me with your love Before the cataracts blind me Dimming the lights as I gasp So that I can see you As my breath becomes shallow And when the spirit at the gate Rings down for my number I will whisper with a kiss As I pass... To everlasting tomorrows For things will come to past When the Good Lord ask...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

Just a Glance

Oh how we fall in love, at one touch, at one glance

Just a momentary love affair, As wicked as any, Just a glance across a crowded room, A stranger catches my eye, And steals my soul. I am forever lost, In her deep blue eyes, I am forever lost, In the hint of a smile, I am forever lost, lost in her beauty, I am forever lost, lost in her dream. And that is the agony, and beauty Of living, That you...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

Here And Now

Usually in song of idle-while thoughts soft tones dancing of aspirations and amore As gift of winds watch over me in tunes and with kisses you sigh I love you Feeling the breath of silent breeze send  swing low the boughs of willows you bring And with that I will take my adieu  near the well waiting for you With swishes of soft tones dancing  in arabesque on life's carousel On...Read On

Gaze

...Let yourself slip inside...

Hands reach for each others chest, fingers gently entwined. Hearts by gentle beats defined, soft palms, come together, to form a nest. Rise and fall with each and every breath, shallow and of peace bereft. In a heave of calmness, let yourself go, let comfort assume control. Feel my pulse within yours, feel my breath fill you, head to toe,. Converge in me and I converge in you. Linked...Read On

Caring for her Sir

With a soft whisper into the night, Feel better, my Sir...

He always looks after her, Cares for her, Making sure all her needs are met. Tonight, as His face is hot with fever, She looks after Him. It is her time to care for her Sir. Gently she caresses His hair, His head cradled in her lap, Soft words of comfort and love whispered. Hot soup, drinks, medicine and cold cloths, She gladly gets it all, Hoping every little thing helps a bit. ...Read On

The Collide

For someone who is always on my mind.

Everything dims around me, a bulb's filament fading fast, the light along warm bodies cautiously receding when we reach for one another, our naked shapes like two darkened continents afloat, struggling to collide in our new forms. Consuming me now as much as the first time I tried to unravel your mysterious layers, the clues and fissures bringing us closer to entwining, closer...Read On

Tall Grass

Now that tall grass covers my shadow And I on the other side of refrain,  Whispers of my quill come caroling While in vagabond shoes scribing yore, You sit on a cushion of lily pad With scent of honeysuckle zest  Beneath the yew on bank of dawning dusk, While I in vagabond shoes whisper melodies And gone are the gables and growing ivy,  In awe of your brimming smile  ...Read On

Beautiful Dreams

Searching for sleep It evades me Eludes me Defying logic In the quiet moments Thoughts of you Fill my heart Vivid in my mind I close my eyes Hearing your voice Tasting your kisses The taste of ecstasy You feel like home Comforting Welcoming Familiar If I let my imagination Run freely Our soundtrack Plays music in my heart Images flash Steamy showers Breathtaking kisses And...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

My Christmas Wish

My Christmas Wish It’s the most wonderful time of year The air should be filled with Christmas cheer Trees and houses adorned with lights The twinkle of children’s eyes so bright Santa knows who’s naughty and nice He has his list and checks it twice If only he and his magic reindeer Could bring you to me, so we could be near I’d wrap you tight in love’s warm embrace ...Read On
