Wildfire

You came like wildfire

You came into my life like a wild fire  through the dry mountains My heart was drier  than the California Mountains  after a long drought It looked beautiful all green from outside  but was drier inside When you came ablaze  I became yours  you became mine You burn within me  like the fires of the mountains  you have sparked my desire like no one could The...Read On

Stellaire

The ever recurring cycle of the heart

I am cosmic dust I spread across the sky You are a glowing nebula Your beauty makes me cry I’ll be a brown dwarf I’ll not be seen, nor be heard You are a twinkling pulsar In heavenly tales, you’ll be referred Of you, murals they’d paint You’d brighten up their lives Of me, they take no prisoners And thus cast me to one side The warmth you bring to me The way...Read On

A kiss

One single kiss is all I need

A kiss is all that I desire, a simple brush of lips, as I caress your smiling face with gentle finger tips. I glide those fingers 'cross your cheek and o'er your risen chin, then down your sweet and slender neck, your cool and perfect skin. Your eyes are closed, your heart beats fast, my breath upon your face, as I edge slowly closer, 'til your lips and mine embrace. I draw your...Read On

The Morning Review

Lovers and poets and tea

If you’re going to live out contradictions Put them all on the same page at least? I did, I did! I rage and plea But oh, I spill my tea. In all the fume and excitement I forget almost This ecstasy dyes out the daily planner And makes my hours a wash. Did you see the rain? The sky collapses And putters, putters, and the laundered specks Drizzle past pebbles as out the pipes they fly. Oh,...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

Grasshopper Shoes

What poets scribe of beauty and serenity my shadow moonlights in prose, of dead silence and hungering lips and phantoms rehearsing. In loveliness I see peaches in trees, blue bonnets on bumble bees and grasshoppers wearing shoes, as I lust for your honey-comb box. On whirlwinds calliope  as our love reflects on life's written pages,  the path to happiness chimes carousel...Read On

As The Moon Rose

Who was watching as the moon rose, Who still gathers bowls of primrose. Just the one whose soul is dreaming That her joys shall keep on streaming, Will be raining down upon her, If she only lives with honor. She accepts the world of beauty Comes to those who follow duty. Oaths are made to those we cherish Knowing faith will never perish While the stars continue glowing, As the...Read On

Stranger

First time I saw you My heart beats like crazy It makes me feel alive again From that day on Your always on my mind Feel strange  I cant get you out of my head Every time I saw you You make me smile Out of words  I don't know what to do What should I do? Every time you speak I always listen Your voice music to my ear Whenever you ask  I cant give you an answer ...Read On

Love Is

love is not about control, love is about freedom x

“Love is” (Love is) not about control, Love is, about (freedom) Love is, not about knowing all, Love is about craving the secrets. You watch a bird feeding on the lawn, And know it is beautiful, And desire its beauty. But you cannot know its inner soul, It is no less perfect. Inside, it has its demons Its demons hidden so well, That if you think You...Read On

All I Need

I have all I need

Together, all our love  this night, was for our children’s dreams. Their tiny toys  and bits of sweets, safely wrapped beneath our tree. Rewarded by their innocence, their joy of life, and their sweet repose. It warms my heart,  and it warms yours, too to give them all of those. Our family sings and loves and laughs  on this Christmas eve. And with them in their happy place, The...Read On

The Fort

The safe haven of a kitten.

I'm alone, in my fort. The tears streaming down. Built to be a shelter, for me alone. I let him in, though my heart breaks. My mind wants logic, my heart wants protection. My body, defies it all. It is his and his alone. He knows, this Knight of mine. He takes control of his possessions. My parts are in turmoil, an internal battle. He comes unarmed, so one may think. ...Read On

Is It Futile

Is it always going to be useless? Will she ever really understand? Has the truth been lost in the mist of misunderstanding? Tomorrow, she will get it. Tomorrow, she will get me. Tomorrow, she will know all. Tomorrow, I will not feel the futility. Until then Until that time Until she understands Until she gives me succor I will continue. Go on. Make do. Never give up, never give in. ...Read On

the ocean

Her diagnosis should be crippling It should cause her to live in peril Sad and angry at the unfair world It should have jaded her but it didn't Seeing her mortality in black and white It finally allowed her to set her heart free For once she allowed herself to live life Every moment appreciated and savored Collecting beautiful memories just in case Meeting him was by chance and so...Read On

Patchwork Hearts

Over the course of one's lifetime our heart changes shape,  it evolves and transforms.  Once untouched,  unbroken in its entirety  an unblemished, whole beauty. Somehow beyond our comprehension,  defying all we know of logic,  through heartbreak it becomes  even more beautiful,  weathered and worn,  so delicate yet so strong.  I think of my heart as a frayed edge quilt,  wove of...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

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

Bed Of My Cries

Fractured memories make me cry, When the dew is on the yew And my tears have not dried. As your soul sets sail On a cold sea in November, Leaving me with fractured memories With no words to utter, but a prayer. But in dreams when I lay me down On bed of my cries, I count the memories In the vase of your ashes....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

Becoming yours

You knew I would be yours You knew I would belong to you In my heart I knew that was true I was stubborn from the start I denied the feelings of my heart For I knew I was yours I thought I was in control I willing submitted, you established your rights You gave me time, to clear my mind I listened to my heart, and knew I was where I belonged I took my place under you Safe...Read On

Ghosts

Ghosts of the past brush near her as she returns to a place of her past. Fond memories clouded by pain, the hurt she cannot seem to escape. Stuck in darkness, the hollow storms roar, tearing at her as she curls up, in wane she tries to find some shelter, but the stormy darkness is in her very core. There is no way to hide from herself. She waits in silence in hope to gather strength,...Read On

Declaration of love

Dedicated to my great love NickC

"When you find me, You hold my hand. Sometimes I see a crow; He squawks and my ears burn. Why does love find all of us? No it does not. It is a thing innocuous, Holding and holding. But it is not there or here. It is a cloud, A mystery. You love me, And so do I." "When you find me, You touched my heart. My love for you is like the ocean; Wide, deep and untamed. ...Read On

Silver Lining

Out of hardship, they found happiness

We met at a time when we were both facing difficulties, after having being hurt and shedding many tears. One day we started talking, learning, sharing, and growing closer as we gradually become friends. We started sharing more personal details as we grew even closer. Now we comfort and support as we are each other's confidant. Then one day we pulled one another closer, shared a...Read On

Your Perfume [poem]

I’m thinking of last night and this in particular: that kiss under thread-swinging mistletoe just after you were the last to say you had to go. Our lips touched and held a second too long, I felt. Lips unpursed I could tell this meant more. I drowned in the smell of your mulled breath and the wet taste of sugar sweet on your lips. Haste forgotten in the perfume of that embrace. ...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

The Brightest Star

The Brightest Star during a moonless night Is a flame that flickers bright The flame burns deep Deep within the skin and soul A flame that burns with great heat Emotions are the fuel for this Fire Anger, hate, loneliness, and mistrust Mixed with passion, love, and lust Deep within they simmer And they wait For the spark That will ignite them forever The flames of...Read On

Valentine Haiku

I'm nomadic in Searching for the one who is My all, everything. You've awoken The sleeping dragon called quest, In that we journey. The warmth of your soul Touched me in unknown ways and In beauty unseen. You soothed my soul as We collided into one Most beautifully. You set me on fire, Flames fed by desire as you Feed me hungrily. All my thoughts run to You. Hold me...Read On

Are

In due-course of my poetic ramblings  I wish to be a better scriber among poets,  calling on sensuality and endearing phrases and the twinkling of who your eyes are. Writing of many sings in words and rhymes  there is romance that keeps me entranced, like a libretto whispering silently in my ear  prosing the few I hold dear and in truth are. As moonlight in timpani of my...Read On

Until

A never-ending love, eternal's gift from you, Like a thread on a spool forever we are twining As the silver lining of our wed quilts our spread, And when the thimble runs over with kisses The buttons that we sewed told our true,  I will be there to share a string to tide me over  Until my life unwinds and the bobbin goes quiet, Burying me with your needle....Read On

Coincidences

...I don't believe in them

I don't believe in coincidences I do believe in love I think we've been put together By the man from up above Whenever I see you near My heart begins to flutter I think you are the one my dear We go together like jelly and peanut butter I know about the others I've seen them hang around like flies Simply put, I see their true colors I've heard all their lies So when they...Read On
