Saved by Love

Compassion triumphs over despair

I was spinning, spiraling, losing  control of all that was earthly.  The result of betrayal, of treacherous  plans, of schemers who prey on naivete. The darkness approaching, enveloping  me in its quiet seduction. Nothingness.  So easy to allow the blackness to take  over, to sleep the sleep of the defeated. I lay in the bosom of self-pity, lay there  awaiting madness,...Read On

Thank you

You fight the clouds. You make the sun shine. You bring me hope, You make life seem fine. You fill me up, You make me right. They way you smile, the way you type, I love the way you hold me tight. Without you I feel alone, and scared, You gift the demons in my head. I can't explain what to do to me. I'll always be glad that you're...Read On

Through A Glow

Through a glow cast by dreams,  words will slowly bloom your heart open,  leave me wanting nothing more than to know the next line of your story. Formless we first meet,  unraveling in the dark until  finding the other's light,  unstoppable once those unique  illuminations circle and join. You'll touch upon the places I've built gates around,  guards standing silent and as tall as the...Read On

Calliope Tree

Like a carousel turning counter clockwise on an axis of fond memories,  the effervescence of you  beneath wind chimes that sing and calliope tree. In silence your kisses blow enchanting my sins, like sherry stirring my emotions  of soft breath from a decanter and scent of yesterday's wine. Now in caress of carousel rhymes  and sing-a-long times of sugaring kisses, we slide upon...Read On

Tall Grass

Now that tall grass covers my shadow And I on the other side of refrain,  Whispers of my quill come caroling While in vagabond shoes scribing yore, You sit on a cushion of lily pad With scent of honeysuckle zest  Beneath the yew on bank of dawning dusk, While I in vagabond shoes whisper melodies And gone are the gables and growing ivy,  In awe of your brimming smile  ...Read On

Into the Distance

I gave you the best of me, And we were happy, For a moment in time. When our souls embraced, And we glimpsed a reality That no one could understand. But I didn't care, Because all I ever wanted was To stay in that moment, For all eternity. With you. With your love. But along the way, Doubt crept in And seized me. Took hold of my emotions, And toyed with my heart. Made me question, Made me...Read On

Finally Free

Looking to the love beyond...

The steady gentle sound Of the softly falling rain Fails to completely mask The deluge of my pain Drowning in hurt Wallowing in despair Where was the one Who was supposed to care Out in the world Suddenly, irrevocably alone Nobody and no place To even call my own A single solitary tear Slips unbidden down my cheek Angrily I swipe it away Must never show that I am weak ...Read On

Nothing But Lies

Lies, it’s been nothing but lies Black words etched into my bleeding heart Contaminating the past Memories crumbling, falling apart Those summer evenings we lay Together, gazing at the stars Whispers of endearment Plans for the future afar Are blown away with the storm Amidst them, my heart and soul Left with shattered pieces, I wonder If I’ll ever again be whole I...Read On

My Shenandoah

My emotions run deep when in my obscurity beyond the shadows of the wall,  calling of the ague my thoughts of sensuality. Like tumbling waters over stones And the wilding of my offerings,  feverish kisses I scribe, hungering for you. It wasn't but a touch ago in meadows of flowers I held you so  And caressing your skin, I got the ague. Now the rapids of life wash over me  and...Read On

The Simple Truth About Love

why do we complicate love?

The simple truth about love, the more you know someone intimately, the clearer you see their faults. It's that simple. This is the simple reason why so many marriages fail, why children get abandoned and why friendships do not last. Intimacy goes beyond sex, it is a simple touch of a hand, a caress, or the wiping of a tear It's that simple. This simple gesture opens doors, ...Read On

A Sad Existence

Sign the papers!

Twelve years you've lived with my friend However, we're still legally married This is ongoing and not the end This is a lot to be carried This broke me to have a break down While you and your whore play house You still always come around You're technically my spouse You and your slut never go away You still help to pay our bills You still cheat and you stray I think this gives you...Read On

Tempt me

Come to my beckoning call. Drink from my water's mouth. Whisper words of passion. Tempt me with touch. Lay me down on my mother's earth. Show me the ways of man. We move to the dance as old as time. Cries of passion carrying on the night's sky Entwine us body and soul; For when the dawn breaks, We must part, For this is a forbidden love....Read On

To Reach You

You may open the windows one night  to feel the wind wrap around your body,  to breathe in an essence that traveled  across vast oceans to reach you. You sense me there,  flying and spiraling through the dark cold,  searching for a way back with only a map of winding stars,  each night their steadfast glows reflect  along the endless depths of rippling waters. When the sun sinks below...Read On

You are back

You are back and that's a fact my heart nearly stopped I got up and jumped danced around with joy You are fucking back and that is so grand A month of crying Wondering what if but last night I saw your name, first and last emotions rising I thought I had lost you have no idea but not a day went by not an hour or a minute that you were not on my mind Told you before when I fall, I fall I...Read On

Blank

An empty canvas Left untouched Nobody cares to leave a mark No emotion No future mapped out Just days sitting, collecting dust. Weeks passing, Still untouched Until one day A beautiful man came And painted a pretty picture Filled every space No corner left alone Finally feeling complete Apart of something great That beautiful man Was you....Read On

As it rains

To lie here with you

To wake with you on this rainy morn Your lips finding their way along my spine So gentle the trail you lay Deeper within, my soul glows. Kissing my lips, take that sparkle Ignite my interest, keep me near Keep me interested, I'll never stray Share my interest, broaden the mind Hold nothing back, I implore Make a point, get to it Romance the mind, the body shudders Flow...Read On

Currents Surrender

You've become the only current in me, infinite and unguarded with every embrace that makes it impossible to really know where you end, where I begin. I've become threadbare inside this, unable to know continents by their shapes, forgetting all the territories you've claimed because a name's memory cannot form alongside a scorched earth policy. There's a certain peace in such...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

Naked Under Your Eyes

To know he knows me even with his eyes closed

Sitting with the blanket at her feet, a cup of cocoa, and a book in her hands. She lies just under the facade of proper. You know the girl I mean… A smile so sweet, it melts you. A word stronger than most. Yes she is the one. The one that craves direction, needs control like the air she breathes. To all she is a rock, and a totem, to you she exudes submissiveness from her pores like...Read On

Voice

i am no one a disembodied voice calling endless through the night whispered from top mountain peeks to drift down the valleys only to settle  with the morning dew I am everywhere i fill the air around you cradle you in your sleep with sounds so soft they touch your dreams invading your waking moments with fleeting thoughts that can not be grasped within your dreams follow the river my love...Read On

Gray Clouds

Sometime dreams so long ago an opus of romance we shared, in haze of my narrowing days now all that's left is   melancholia.   It wasn't but a fortnight hence and sometimes past I gasped,  of times together we spent  before the calling of last tense. And the shadow of the falling hovering above my closing eyes, love cries on my balling sighs lost breath in disguise. Now times...Read On

Saucer's Quarters

Then I heard the chirping birds  in sink of saucer's quarters, a blue chill of cold waters and a sound I can't recall. Like a prima donna's aria in echo beneath moon bright and cello, smooth as silk and soft words evening breeze through her hair. The wind-sail of dusk's crown, harbor light green eyes of she in blue chill of cold waters, sipping Glenfiddich listening to birds....Read On

Coming Of Dew

Thee of silence the winds whisper Without a symphony Or methadone ticking Kiss me now, kiss me do Only with a sigh Remember me true And coming of the dew Lay thee rest 'morrows dawn Gathering leaves down of nest Kiss me still kiss me blue Remember me with melancholia tears...Read On

Red Socks

I felt the winter's chill As frost lay silently on my window pane In condensation with my conversation I spoke to your shadow as you refrained  But as the tallow spent And the humidor of the hearth warmed Your breath raised the hackles of my lust About the nether parts of my mortality As moans sighed from the campanile And your thighs gave rise I gathered from the embers Moments to...Read On

Favorites

Sleeping in on a Saturday... A bird chirping a sweet song Wind whipping through my hair The smell of fresh clean laundry A rainbow glowing across the sky Dancing to my own beat The thunderous applause of the crowd A crispy apple Juice running down my chin The heat of the sun on my back The crunch of freshly packed snow under foot Laughter, laughter, laughter! The excitement on...Read On

Message in a Bottle

In a bottle to the sea, my dreams are tossed.

You're my friend and I am pleased. Be in my thoughts and in my heart;  happiness is within our grasp. A heart so pure, writes these verses, and they will be tossed. Into a bottle they go, at the sandy shore, hoping my dreams to grow. Distances I do not see, and in my life,  a beacon you are. This message to the stars, perhaps to give us a chance. Otherwise ... it's just time. Longing...Read On

Proof

Fill this out, if you don't mind . . .

I tried to research sources I could find no proof I tried to seek out references I guess they all had moved I thought up some trick questions They did seem answered right And who says "lie detector test" As a date some night? I wish there were a sure-fire way To leach out the truth Instead of just believing When you say "I love you."...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

Waking to a dream

The gaping chasm beckons, tempting me to just lean a little, Feel the calm from below, the chill that numbs all thoughts and feeling. No more pain or confusion. What a blessing, no more illusions. The silence of emptiness creeps up through my toes, Starves my capillaries. My skin purples, and my heart slows. Catatonic bliss... My tired mind craves that gift. A familiar...Read On

Passionately Loving You

When you find THE one

    Passion, for passion's sake In and of itself Can be great   But Passion when There is also love Seems to elevate that feeling So very high above   To add new meaning and depth Make it seem more A passionate love like that Will never seem a chore   It can see all consuming Yet perfect in its ease Two people loving each other As passionately as they please   From...Read On
