What Is Love To You?

Once upon a time... Isn't that how stories start? Well, once upon a time I thought real love was Red drawn crayon hearts, Butterflies and goosebumps, Friday night movie dates, Kisses in the pouring rain, And Tiffany boxes Full of sparkly things. I saw true love like a story With a perfect ending everytime. Over the years I have learned Love is not like that at all. True love...Read On

broken pieces

meeting someone new that wants you even when your broken inside.

He found her broken so he tried to fix her He found all the colors of life underneath her So many things he wished to teach her So much love he had to give her His heart spoke to hers, please be mine But deep down inside he wondered if her hurt was too much to put aside Would his love speak its mind, could he make her heart work one more time?...Read On

The Willow Grove

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Light dances upon the rippling surface of Deep, cool green waters that Pool at the feet of the willow grove. Sundrops kiss your smiling face As shimmers of gold grace your skin. The summer sea breeze Carries a giggling melody through The coastal valley where Butterflies flitter From wildflower...Read On

Windows

The windows to you remain so close to me  as you sleep in the cradle of my arms,  shut so tight in the dark. I wonder what different planets you've molded without me. If I'm there by your side or a different  version of us exists in those private realms. If the imperfections we've carried into this home  have been chiseled and sanded away,  smoothed over to be the ideal joining  we once...Read On

Vampire Moon

Forever... and then where?

The roses tattooed across your tan thighs, Undying ink beneath your smooth skin Will remain, remain Until we die, And then, where will we be? The pier, deserted But for you, A vision in your tight black dress, Red lips, dark hair, Each time I look at you, You haunt the salt white boards There, beneath the vampire moon. And what of you, my love On...Read On

Winter Fields

two lovers in a field as snow falls around them, walking, clinging close to one another...

So you gently fall around me, Like so many dark stars, You break a sky of white. You fill my dreams, And the fields where I walk, Are silent now. Snow, kiss me, you are gentle As a lover, in white sheets, You are as soft as her breast, Caught in snow tight lace. We should turn back she smiles, We might freeze, But I could live here forever. This is a...Read On

Venus

Last night I stood transfixed as I watched the moon chase Venus across the sky. Darting between the clouds, an impossible arc, only to fall short of her beauty. And I watched in total wonder. Does she not know he is old, dull and scarred? Her eyes see only wisdom, far beyond he countless eons he has shined. His scars subtle reminders of the gallant battles he has won. ...Read On

Submerged

I've always wanted to know how to reach you, to forget each divide within us that is a dark ocean populated with dangerous new species, depths we may not know how to chart alone. I don't want to stay on the surface anymore, where rippling reflections are torn by tides colliding and forgetting how to merge, where waves pull us apart before a sound can leave our lips. I've been to blame all...Read On

As You Desire, As You Request... My Fire

And so as you request, thy desires I offer to fulfill to thrill.

I present to thee as ye to me,  A history of form and function,  A perfected him before perfect her,  We both do dare this juncture of dance  Where layers lay bare to caring stare and circumstance, And strum of digit, hum of lips,  Sips from dripping honeyed hips, Our offered symbol, confident trust,  Swaying thus a gentle thrust,  As God intended, all is splendid… harmony. ...Read On

Stronger

Always me... always me that has done wrong. Well you are wrong, mr perfect.

Time stood still As you walked away from me All I could hear were your footsteps Confident, happy, relieved Time stood still As you uttered those words “I don’t want you.” But my heart will not break this time This time I walk away With my head held high Knowing that I can do better That I have done better I will survive this And be better for it I will find that special someone That...Read On

Poisoned Fruit

I am poison So I’ve been told Dare taste my fruit If you are bold. You’ve been warned About my charms So sweet, so sly Of how it harms I’ll reel you in I’ll take my prey Devour you whole Then run away I mean no harm Partake of me But you will never Be set free I’ll use and use I’ll only take That’s what he said GO! For your sake I’ll only hurt I’m hard to love Don’t even...Read On

Meet Me On A Wild Street Corner

Running away with love...

Meet me on the wild street corner on a rainy night, When the wind howls and the midnight train Calls it’s lonesome song, Meet me on the crossing with your possessions packed, Your hair tied back, And tell me that your fears are gone. Steal a rose from your garden, To hold against your heart, And let your wild eyes speak of love and passion, And we shall tell no one...Read On

Love Is...

Love breathes life into me, And makes me feel alive. Love is a friendship, a union. Hearts bound for an eternity. Love is waking each morn, To your kiss which brings me comfort. Love is wanting to know and hear, Everything about my day. Love nourishes my soul and warms my heart, As we waltz together through life. Love is knowing my faults, And never pulling away. Love is not saying a...Read On

A Fresh New Start

A short poem for the woman I love

When I first saw you  I knew it was true,  That I would fall  In love with you. For four whole months  You loved me true,  How could I  Be over you? I tore us apart,  With regret in my heart,  But now we’re here  At a fresh new start. You trust me now,  That I see.  Implicitly, explicitly,  Compassionately. It is now my turn  To repay your patience,  To love you forever, ...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

Out Of The Shadows

A love poem for an on-line lover

In the shadows  For 16 months A secret we kept, Even from friends In this other world Who was to know That your comment On my story Would see us Move so quickly To create our own The conversation Was so natural The curiosity,  Subtle at first, Words unspoken Building anticipation, Filling the space Between our words And so began Our gentle dance Of mutual seduction ...Read On

Walls

Unnecessary barriers erected like dispatches from discarded partings unwelcome at my window. Remorseful, I repair to rooms where I prepare to escape what I've laid bare. Refused musings eliciting remorseful borders, mordant, ordered, conforming to my contortions. Her shelter I seek, affording glimpses of adoration of succour of warm harbour yet seining in...Read On

A Sailor's Siren

The sea calms my barren soul not a single light shines at this silent hour waiting for my sailor upon the rocky shore the same waves which took to him my plea a message in a bottle, in it my heart and love Daily I await for his return at the old pier for the man who brought back my light Our last kiss with a fearful sigh I gave waving a handkerchief to the wind When the sailor for...Read On

Dribbling through Juicy land!

All it intends to make a flood of love through your honey land!!

It’s craving within, like stones carry fountains. It’s biting me within, like woodchoppers chop. I live, I walk, I do, yet no fun. Yet nothing to have, until you are there beside me. I feel the rushing waves, I see the falling stars. I hear the murmurs, I dream the desires. When you put your lips on mine, it’s drizzling honey. When you put your tongue into mine, it’s digging...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

Across A Shimmer

Your face is just a shimmer across the water,  a rippling mirror that always tries to find  wherever my reflection chooses to hide,  in the gaps a lens could never quite capture. Where nothing but a cavernous quiet reverberates through the heart's chambers after the final  footsteps across a breaking bridge. I'll never hear the weight of what we were collapsing,  cracking roads and...Read On

First Kiss

Do you remember that feeling of the first kiss?

The affectionate feelings, as you walk side by side. Wondering if he will do it, and how it will feel if he does. Daydreaming, wishing, attraction. The stop at the front door, awkward pauses and fidgeting. Unending conversations, actually talking about the weather. Heart pounding, nerve racking, anticipation. Not wanting to be too forward, not wanting to leave without it. So nervous...Read On

Amaranth

Stares hooked across the room Uneasy touching, exploring, pushing Backing up, Amaranth in bloom Confidence rises, juices gushing Sexual explosion, revel in heat Lust rushing through bodies burning Increasing passion play, Amaranth so sweet Two minds, as one, loving, yearning Souls entwined forever to infinity Lustful rage replaced by love Settling bodies, Amaranth to eternity...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

In Silence

The Flutter

His love rescued me, From a life of emptiness, A thought of resignation, To my married fate. His love is gentle with me, It learns my weaknesses, And builds them up, Opening my eyes to his world. His love is patient with me, Arms steady as I doubt, Standing firm, never leaving, Waiting until I am there. His love is strong for me, When I have no strength of my own, It holds...Read On

Opposites attractively

mood changes everything that's meant to be or not to be

  Sex has a nasty way Of getting in the way Of getting close To the one you love. Love has a gentle way Of having sex In many ways To the one you love. Put these two together Sex and Love, I mean. Souls bound by tether In love, not obscene. What is beautiful is why No matter who or whom Blending and unending Are Circles of...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

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

These Arms

These arms, must hold you and Never let go. There is an invisible, permanent tether attached from me to you. That cannot ever be broken or pulled apart. The material is stronger than steel or iron for it is made of love. Hold my hand so I may kiss yours again and again. My lips shall never tire of you or of all the places I have never been. If you are not within reach of me you are too far...Read On
