Perfectly Sweet

As I sit in my old chair, your gaze has me transfixed. My heart lays enchained in front of me. Body unable to do the simplest task. Yearning and pleading to you, the kiss. So sweet, so irresistible, flawless. I know it is dangerous, I know it will cost me everything. Like the series of old, she compels me and denies me. Those lips calling to me, kissing a hurricane would be...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

Loose Caring

the Hearts Betrayal

Caring Lost, Who cares about the Cost. Why Bother anymore , When things get lost. The Heart brings Pain, Holding cares within. Lose the Feeling, Then you'll start healing. Why does the Heart feel Pain, Not even Healed by the Rain. Why should it be there, When without, Is...Read On

Typhoon

I watched you enter happily, A cool breeze from the west, You met my good friend easily, The gentle sun spot she is. The two of you started harmoniously, No sign of a storm, I saw the weather fronts move, Collide and become one. Things took a turn for the worst quickly, The weather began to frown, The sun started hastily, To decide it should come down. When you became a wrecking ball,...Read On

Tempestuous

A cautionary tale. . .

A yen for intrigue and risk is how it begins The line being blurred between folly and sin Casting open a virtual Pandora's box Not taking into account the monumental cost.   Our initial encounter taking place in the air Desire's heady aroma proving too much to bear Pheromones, whiskey, cologne, all serve to beguile Provoking me to conjure up my feminine wiles.   With no other...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

Ecstasy

Without a word you open to me and enfold And I can do no other than merge with you And we become one as we hold So tightly that yes we are one not two; And I reach, reach so deeply inside. Your limbs, your mouth, your being Engulf me as again and again I slide Into your depths. We are fleeing To that glorious paradise, that warm sea Where the being that we are ...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

Treehouse Of The Round

'Neath shadows and shrouds  As we share dalliances of sin In my ebullience and moment of truth Given my proclivities of poetic couth A new found vigor poetically sound With silent moments and my pen Bopping' in your womanhood In a treehouse of the round While sipping hot ginger gin Giving you all-my-got As we share dalliances of sin While our feet hit the ground  Running...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

Walking in the Fog of Passion

Come awake, Shake it off, After so much time Lost in dreams that never came true. You have spent your senses  In words to the air, Throwing your reason Into the dust bin Of your consciousness. A cleansing rain of honesty Washes away The fog of besotted lust Unmet and unreturned. Words have power, As you full well know, Manipulating  And playing with them  In ascending  Stairways of...Read On

I Love You!

A poem for a special person in my life.

I lay awake at night Thinking of you You're constantly on my mind A video playing on loop I never planned this I'd hoped one day to find that special someone Like a tidal wave You crashed through the barriers around my heart Walls I erected to protect me After so much pain I'd experienced Knives jabbed into my heart Ripping at it from ones I trusted Piece by piece You slotted it back...Read On

Rhythms

Being... And watching... Separate from all... Yet a part of each... As your heart... Keeps time with those you desire... A background melody... Yearning in a rhythmic dance... To which only the composers... Can feel the music... Feeling the symphonies within... Their hearts and minds... Seeking new boundaries... Bodies aching with each pulse... Dancing in slow motion... Bodies twined... In...Read On

Hide Away

It hit me in the night, I left every door open and still nothing, I’m such a bloody fool, To think he might, but no. I will remove myself from more harm, Cover my feelings and hide, It is the way to be safe, I’ve learned, No more, ever, ever, ever, never ever. Thought I was safe in my secret world, But it crept up on me somehow, Didn’t even notice til it was too late, And now it...Read On

Naiad

Glitter water flowing Sun flecks on her skin Dancing with the river As graceful as a nymph Free from care and troubles Smooth unfurrowed brow The visage of an angel Whose serenity is found On land her heart weighed heavy Life’s burdens bearing down Afloat, her tresses streaming Dressed in her aqueous gown Moving with the current Cleansed of tragic stain Watching her is joyful...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

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

Lightning

This cacophony of sound, Echoes all around, As the bolts come crashing down, Makes your smile flash a frown. The flashing of the light, In the deep depths of the night, The rumble of the thunder, Mirrors the crumbling of plunder. The lightning heightens everything, Every twitch and every feeling, The almost supernatural, Its this place so rural. The God of Thunder watches, As he plays...Read On

Abandonment

Reflections of what you have left behind

I await your return, like a puppy left alone in the dead of night The eyes that shed teary waterfalls, of abandonment The beating heart, that once leapt into bundles of joy Now resolved to curling up, to provide warmth in this harsh of winter's night You walked away without words, leaving me without warning of no return The thundery crashes of noises around me, that offer shaking instability...Read On

Descended From These Fathers

A poem I wrote about my wife seven years before I met her

I am left here descended from these fathers Caught in the glare of sudden Illumination. Oh, you know the fathers I mean The ones who chant In the catacombs of heart Giving voice to low murmurs That hold time together With wattle, And daub, And spittle, And hopes. Dwellers where dreams Get laid to rest prematurely They sang of you in low tones That rumbled up faintly Through limestone...Read On

Learning from a bad break up

User, I can't tell you how much it sickens me to think of how you use people. Brings tears to my eyes and puts a knot in my stomach. Using your sexuality and others desires of you, to get what you want and make you feel better about yourself. All the while you burn those around you, filling their heads with desire like the Pied Piper, calling to them like the Sirens from Odysseus. ...Read On

Forever Love

You opened my eyes to your love, lost and alone till you came and picked me. Over everyone else you showed me a better way to live and love with all my heart. You're my everything, my true love, my world, a breath I take, and my soul. Nothing will stop me from loving you for the rest of time in this place. Wrapped in your embrace tightly, holding me forever in your arms. ...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

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

The Masterpiece Between Us

Every finger brushing skin Like the soft glide of paint on canvas Every sigh or moan, a melody, To which we will dance, And I will find my muse along your curve In your eyes I read a poem, No… An epic to rival Odysseus and Romeo who died for Juliet The blue of an ocean far more vast Much brighter light through yonder window to your heart That will guide me through it well Alike to the rest...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

Secret Love

Love can be a wonder...

Heavens made love and hope, Angels sing and a sweeter coat. People believe that mates are made, People believe of such fates. Younger still was oblivious, Various souls made so cautious. An array of souls displayed, Love is always young not fade. Ends are not always, Never leaving here you stay. Time goes on but the sense is strong, In a heart you’ll live so long. ...Read On
