If You

Just thoughts

If I were to leave, just disappear As swiftly as the Ocean breeze Would the Stars still shine as bright? If my presence was not felt, unseen, A drifting scent that weaves into a mist Would the voices of Nature still be heard? If the prints I make were to be erased, As the sand covers them without remorse Would the birds continue to migrate? If I were suspended, caught between...Read On

Abandonment

The Magic of it All.

Do you know what abandonment is? It's crazy I need to explain it. It can take on many forms. Come in many different ways. Most assume it is leaving. Did you ever think of the silence? You forget; It's the absence of something. Something you need. Something you crave. What are you missing? The touch. The feeling. The magic of it all. The touch, Where did it go? The feeling,...Read On

Vocation

Lust Eruption of sexual heat Love Bonds two hearts entwined Fear Kept truth inside Guilt Building till I burst Truth Cutting like a knife Shattering The heart I love Burst Into a million parts Sorrow Turned own heart lone Frantically Looking for pieces Mending The heart with love Vocation Till I die and beyond... ...Read On

wide awake

I close my eyes but I can't fall asleep how can I sleep next to him when I despise him thinking of the right way to tell him that I do not love him anymore even though he’s the reason for my tears it still pains me to know that my love for him has faded away I tried to hold onto his love but it slipped away from me if only he was there when I needed him the most to hold me ...Read On

Sonnets for the New Year

Sonnets written on New Year's Day about the disintergration of love

Tenderly, I think of you, lovelier than I have ever known. Your eyes sing, your voice dances, your hair, fluffier and wilder than when gypsies laugh and fling their hearts like tambourines and a fiddle plays. You dazzle me, but like a rainbow I can’t reach, a star I can’t touch, a riddle I can’t penetrate--someone I don’t know. Our words, when we speak, ricochet. Gestures I...Read On

Another Day In The Life Of Miranda

Wind carrying her true love's whispers Forever calling out her name The once quickened pulse that skipped Now beating dispassionately in her veins A smoldering candle on the nightstand Extinguished of its flame Rose petals scattered earlier with precision All that remains Now laying trampled upon the floor Just another day in the life of Miranda Not worth dwelling on anymore As she...Read On

We Frolicked Through Times Most Euphoric

A poetic form of six stanzas with six lines and a final triplet.

As we frolicked through times most euphoric  With true love and enduring ebullience, We both viewed sentiments quite fallacious When we saw they were so meretricious. We continued life's dance with a passion Avoiding all arguments spurious. Was it hope that we saw as spurious, Losing all our sense of the euphoric? Do not worry my love, it's true passion That fills us with such...Read On

Love in Old Age

United in bliss, my lover and I escape to a world of eternal youth and rapture

I pray you, do not trample on my dreams. Though you may only see this outer shell, A frail thing of flesh; this outward reality, Is of no greater substance than the air, Masking the real truth that lies within From the unperceptive gaze of the world, Blinded by the harsh glare of common sense. Outwardly I may be on the dread path That leads to mortal decay and old age, My...Read On

Tension In The Mellowing

Though lovers reach their autumn, their tale will still be told.

There's a tension in the mellowing; A striving in the firelight; A beauty in the darkening air; A gentleness in the autumn fury. Aging love, steadfastly kept, Is still a thriving, broad-shouldered youth. Well-worn hearts are entwined in ivy, Bursting with berried, passionate joys. These ancient days of soft caresses Are forceful in the dying day, And aching limbs still spring with happy...Read On

History's Symmetry

Someone from years ago.

You learn to no longer trust any flicker emanating nearby, sweeping over mysterious blueprints each time, memory is the victim of histories crashing and splintering into one another, as these engines tremble, begin to grow venomous. You should have known better, love, than to rewrite such delicate narratives over and over, losing track of scribbled pages inked on the skin and walls...Read On

You row away

A man watches his love leave

This boat trip was once beautiful, but now you row away. Is there anything more that I can do to make you want to stay? I gave all the love I carried and made you feel so wanted. Did this love just smother you, or did you just take it for granted? Could I have done things differently? Was there any more to give, or are we destined now to part, so you finally can live? ...Read On

True Love

Show the world you love yourself.

It all begins with you. Love cannot be taught, It should be felt from within. True love is one sided Selfish if you will, Beginning with self love. Adoring ones self is fine, Not appalling. Cherishing this fact Is the key. Lips speak volumes. Souls cast auras. Mirrors reflect images. Hearts emanate feelings. Eyes reveal souls. Hearts bleed When bruised or broken. Scarring...Read On

The start

A story of a beginning. A birth, a new love, a new desire...

This is all before I was born Into the real secret of soulful existence, The return of innocence, And the eye of the storm of love. This is before healing, And the gift of beauty, And eternity. This is a magical tale of fact and fiction, Of memory and dream, I cannot tell you where the cloud ends, And the blue sky begins. A song spins around a central pillar, ...Read On

I

How I see

I am parked, I wait for you to come sitting in this lot I see you in a red dress, in red 5" heels with the perfect smile I see your brown beautiful eyes  shy smile sexy ass and legs I walk up to you  take you in my arms  stop you in your track  kiss you on the lips I look at your eyes  your breasts  your beautiful body I tell you that you are mine  I want you  ...Read On

Together

The poet is only alive when united with his love

Your absence becomes a void in my aching heart, Your presence fills my happy soul with golden light, Your silence cuts me like a sharply piercing dart, Your letters give to me the greatest of delight. I love you above all else, more than words can tell, I would give my all for you, everything you see,  I am nothing without you, just an empty shell, I am full to overflowing when you...Read On

Braid

One reason I love the winter

We were so quiet afterwards,  still radios tuned to soft white noise,  keeping one another close while looking for words to form. Until then, we're faithful companions to love's lonely skin,  fingers lazily interlacing,  naked bodies spooned together,  our heat trapped beneath blankets. While I look outside, the curtain a thin layer of blue gauze,  the city's...Read On

Sometimes A World

Sometimes the world is not enough, Sometimes a house is not a home, Material things don't count at all, When people exist with no joy. Empty hearts bleed little hope, No love or feeling runs through veins, A shadow cast o'er men in pain, As the world revolves again. A falling tree in a wood, If not a soul is there, Does it make a sound, As its branches crack on the ground? ...Read On

Storm

Being with you Is like savouring the sun Through the gaps In the clouds In a storm Only there for the briefest of moments Gone away again Too soon Leaving me Eagerly awaiting your return Unpredictable And unique as a snowflake The thunder sounds The flash of lightning The rain crashes and tumbles The wind blows But as you reappear The sadness I felt Falls down around me...Read On

The Bitter Sweet Impact of Fantasy to Reality

If he only knew how much he affects me...

Did you know that I already looked at your picture last night before I went to sleep? As expected you don't look like the man in my imagination. You looked good and tender as your words in our conversations. And I slept last night with you in my thoughts. I lay in bed with a pillow beside me assuming it was you, Your widely spread arms enclosed me from behind, ...Read On

Tormented Heart

I totally deleted you from my life; Seeing you around only caused me strife. Made it so I’d have to look to see if you were here; I am trying to protect me, After so long the urge made me look; There you were like I have fucking e.s.p. What are the chances the only time I look you are there? I rack my brains; I have no idea why I should even care. I don’t understand what I see...Read On

Yearning

First poem submitted to Lush

Alas! Dear love,  Thy pains engulf the bitter strings. My heart trembles for you, Faltering, a sea of woe. Kill love! It's guilty vice! Eternity's repose. Gnawing, my ever waking hours. My nights, a devil's cavalcade. Peace, for but a moment. Alas! Dear love, I burn. Yearning. Desires forsake. A moments death in angel wings....Read On

Red Crayon Heart

When new life is created The heart is the first validation The soft sound of it beating A miracle of man’s procreation Then as young children in "love" Hearts in red crayon we very proudly drew Given to our valentines and crushes Heart was a metaphor for feelings that were new We associate the heart with love Yet it keeps our bodies living Even beating when partially broken Our...Read On

Beloved

I I remember meeting you during the Christmas holidays many years ago. A fire burned in the fireplace but you had a glow that tugged at the moth–in-me. Behind your cherub mask your dark eyes darted, searching, I suspect, for affirmation of your beauty, and beneath the bell tones of your laugh I sensed the broken pieces of your past. II And now,...Read On

Provinces

Sometimes you almost get too close

We charted the lonely contours along one another,  provinces that may have been better left undisturbed,  because the shape of lands can lie as longing bodies do,  familiar horizons weathered into strangers. I'm still on fire when I'm near you,  our forms helpless elements reaching and scorching,  sweeping around the damage we'll cause one another. When the starless sky settles, ...Read On

Show Your Face

You show your face and fill my eyes with tears  That fall like gemstones as my heart does quake With humble thanks that you have lost your fears And let your visage grace, 'tis for my sake. No more must I with bated breath request That you reveal your beauty to my sight, You simply filled my thirst and I was blessed Because I now am quenched with pure delight. I never more shall feel that...Read On

Freedom

There is a constant pressure To do great, to be perfect, To fit a certain mould, From society, from ourselves. She knows she could never reach perfection, No mould ever quite fit. She keeps searching, Trying to find someone, He who could like the woman in her, The thinker and intellectual, Yet also cherish the girl, Who needs to be held and protected. She hides so much inside, ...Read On

Light Bringer

She was an afterthought, one could assume, Just a throwaway bit of loose baggage. Accepting the offer, not to presume.  Astonishing brightness came out of gloom.  Her female love betrayed, took a new road,  Believing that his was the only page To be read in the book of this new code, Admitting addiction, submission owed.  Who could expect it, the call was a strain,  From one who...Read On

Look how the stars shine

Always with YOU!

Sitting here every night looking up above at the sky Thinking of the man I love so very much. Feeling his presence in my heart always Wishing and praying he could be here. Holding my hand Gazing up above with me Looking at these beautiful stars so bright God created for us to enjoy tonight and every night.  Standing here looking above at these beautiful sparkling lights Shining down on...Read On

Nightshade and Blackberry

Sonnet #2: In hexameter and Petrarchan rhyme

Hunted in starlight, haunted, consumed by shadow; Night overwhelming, all bodies awakening. Fluttering eyes blink like butterflies, blackening- Onyx with enlarged pupil, piercing the window. Darting swift, sharp like icicles, through ebb and flow, The storm has come, and the ropes are fast weakening. Gasping, grasping, and breathless efforts quickening... Awake again and twice...Read On

Lantern in the dark

My world died as I felt you remove yourself. My heart was torn from my body, By a rusty teaspoon of broken promise and unfulfilled want. The world was no longer for me, Just for those lucky enough to still have a soul. My spirit whisked onto the funeral pyre of futility, Thinking that this vacuum would be my sole habitat forever. I never saw it coming. I was as blind as Sulla, ...Read On
