What Do You Crave?

When she's everything you crave.

“What do you Crave?” Was the question she asked, And the answer was simple I knew. “Your soft hand in mine, To hear the beat of your heart, And to gaze at the stars beside you.” “The touch of your hand, The light in your eyes, Your soft smile that lightens my heart.” “The curve of your hips, The sound of your sighs, And your kiss when each new day starts.” “The scent of your skin, The...Read On

Words

His. We. Us. Seemingly small, Insignificant words. Yet as they are spoken, They tear down walls, Sink into her soul, Disarming, As she comes apart, Unable to withstand Their power. Tiny words of promise, Stirring deep within, Speaking to her very core, A longing, A need, To belong, To be loved, Desired, Not alone, Someone by her...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

Sleep, My Love

Sleep, my love, for you do not yet know the storms gathering just beyond the shore,  the sweeping violent tides that are oblivious  to flesh and our fragile ties. I can see the clouds reaching,  joining one another like disfigured lonely hands and limbs finally finding a home. The way such gatherings perfectly merge  together often makes me wonder  if nature imitates us or...Read On

Knowing Euphoria

Know euphoria, know the joy, Play with life as if it's a toy. Watch the sunsets, wait for the dawn, Know that someday your lives are gone. Let no worries enter your sight, Play in daylight and in the night. Childlike jubilance fills our days, Petals of rapture line our ways. Ardor keeps our hearts in its grip, Life if a pleasure, join the trip. Skipping down the paths of glory, Taking time...Read On

I Can Be Your Best Friend

I Can Be Your Best Friend You said all you need is a friend. Well girl, you don't need to look too far. I'm here for you till the end. In my eyes you're a star. I could be your friend. I could be your lover. I could be your best friend. I could be there forever. Tell me what you've been through. I'll learn from the past. I can handle anything. If not, I'll learn fast. You can...Read On

Angel Of Innocence

You're a study in contradiction, Strong yet battling deep affliction, Hippolyte meets Euridice. You can bring the sun with a single glance, A knight would lower down his lance Your token, he would make all the world see So why are you so sad inside? What demons are trying to hide? How can I just help them go away? I'm here and I will never go. Let them just fade and know, ...Read On

Shattered

I was whole,  A whole person  Before you came along. You caressed my smooth skin,  Admired my silky softness.  Kissed and licked  Then declared, I am yours to keep. Everywhere you touched  Left marks.  Marks I knew would never disappear, Yet I loved them all the same. Each day that passed,  You left more marks,  Marks of love, you said.  I embraced them, embraced your love. ...Read On

Om Of Presence

What shadows fall on my poetic slumber, Of you smiling with acorns in your hair. In silence as the sycamore breathes, Of autumn's umber and blowing leaves And frosted doilies on the dew. With winds whispering of verses unheard, The om of presence and the wooing wow, With a kiss on the brow of my love so fare. From nocturnal birds and caroling words, And we alone 'neath earthly tones,...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

Now Was Once The Future

Now was once the future, Our dreams that we should be living, Now was once every hope and prayer, Now was our vows constantly filled. Now is now, Our dreams crumbled behind us, Now we pray new hopes and prayers, Now our vows lie in the dust. The future is the future, Our dreams different from before, Now we hope and pray separately, Now, new vows are being written. The past...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

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

My Private Getaway

When I am sad or scared I go to a private place A cabin I visit often with you To talk or play Sometimes just to sleep the day away As we snuggle and cuddle and smile and talk You behind me and me wrapped safely in your arms The fireplace so warm The soft music playing We watch the snow falling The lights twinkle on the valley below We lazily hug and share soft kisses ...Read On

For You

How it started

Saw you from afar at first Didn't know this would happen You came closer, your beauty became clear I couldn't help but stop and stare Closer still, your scent, captivating Then we touched innocently My whole body heated to extremes Did you feel it too? Our eyes met more often The longer gazes made me nervous You brushed my leg as you moved by My breath caught and I...Read On

Versions

In one version of the story, this was the night I lost you, where nothing about my heart could surge through you anymore, registering only as a stranger's gaze. Your final touch was like a stone, cold screaming throughout me from the contact of one fingertip, it's why I only knew how to pull away from every embrace after. The wind howls as headlights vanish down the driveway, down the...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

Land Of Caribou

Missing my eternal sleep, by the touch of a halo  and swallowing my pride, by turning over a leaf in the land of caribou. With the nib of my pen and scribbling new threads, becoming sentimental on falling snow. For whom the heavens shine, romantically incline, sweet kisses and wine, and cuddling my woo. Beneath the midnight sun  in the land of caribou, with dreams...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

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

A moment of peace

Hold me in your arms And don’t let go. Engulf me in your warmth As I curl up close, Listening to your breath, Your steady heart beat, Feeling myself calm As I lose myself in you. Naked skin against skin, I want to nuzzle your neck, Drink in the scent of you, So familiar, Like coming home. Let me just be for a while, Exist inside the cocoon Of your embrace. No stress,...Read On

Pineapple-Moon

Words alone of my breath fail to express the ways I adore you and just the who you were,  as I compose final chapters of our seasons and the inkwell runs dry. Until the blowing winds carry me to infinity and the last of the stirring leaves fly,  on my drying parchment I will scribe as my tearing eyes cry. It wasn't but an autumn ago wild geese flew over and beyond our livings...Read On

I am

When you cry I'll be your shoulder and kiss your tears away, When your hurt I'll take your pain away. I'm your friend at your side. When you feel lost I'll find the way out for you, When you feel the darkness closing in Just reach out your hand, I'll be your light at the end. I'm your sunlight in the sky. When despair moves into your heart I'll replace it with my love, When the river...Read On

Oasis

I was distraught when you first left me, I cried myself to sleep. I couldn't tell which way was I was going, As I headed off through a burning desert sun. I found I was never sleeping, No matter how many times I counted sheep. I can't say you never wanted me, Because I am pretty sure you did. I loved you and you loved me, But things were stolen away from us. You...Read On

Strange Flowers

Through a coupling in which we opened like strange flowers, the moments after are pure, even fragile. Something that almost betrays the seemingly ceaseless frenzy from before. It's only love, this new stillness, this cloudburst of things too swollen to remain contained. To breathe you in, a pheromone haze guided by impulse's velocity, that same attraction becomes ...Read On

A Rose Inside My heart

A Rose inside My Heart When I don’t see you, for a day or two I get an anxious feeling My mind and thoughts are all askew I find myself daydreaming I can’t think straight It’s hard to concentrate I cannot sleep I lie here wide awake And my feelings grow stronger Every day that we’re apart You’re like a flower that grows inside my heart You’re like a daffodil...Read On

2nd Love Letter, Thank you MLS

LS, here is to eternity

My LS, LOML, They say that throughout our lives we spend days, weeks perhaps months or years looking for someone who can see our true essence, to let us know, we do not travel alone, and their mere presence, brings us the brightest smiles. In you I have found my own sanctuary, my own salvation. These are signs of real love, the ones where nothing else matters, that their presence fills...Read On

A Deep Abiding Sadness

'Twas a deep, abiding sadness In a chamber locked away, And I took it out to ponder At the dawning of each day. It became my raison d'etre As my loss became my pain. Just a secret kept in silence, I would not display the stain. No one knows just what I felt When her life rejected me. But I can't allow my grief To keep sailing this sad sea. Watching frolicking and laughter, Children playing...Read On
