Smoke

Day Dreaming

My body shines with twinkled sunbeams in groves. Fire is lit in from souls of men, a passion never lost. As your eyes see through me, holding me never dropping even when turned away in a never ending struggle to catch breath. Moment’s pass the world turns, as moon and sun become one and there twilight kisses turns the world to sleeping embrace. Birds turn to chirping bugs and...Read On

Rattling Windows In Winter

Windows tend to rattle When the frigid winds of winter arrive. Sycamores waving limbs While seasonal change is stirring the air. Glistening whiteness drifts As fallen snow spreads over the rooftops. Bright sunlight gleams briefly Peeking through the gray clouds floating above. Watching our breaths puffing, The city sounds and smells are now muted. Skipping through clinging flakes...Read On

You

searching

I sought you before I knew you existed When we kissed you never resisted To see you to dream of you was all in my mind I finally found you can life be that kind You have made me so much better than I thought I could be And I still can't figure just what you see in me But you have taken my heart and my soul And for the first time in my life I really feel whole...Read On

Patient Fingers

A brief love affair that happened only in my mind...

The last time you wore that blouse, there were eight buttons done up. I remember, because my fingers trembled with nervous energy. They were fixated on them. No, mesmerized by them. Begging to undo them, button by delicious button. Eight buttons. Eight. I see you're wearing it again today. Oh, miracle of miracles! Today there are seven.  Only seven. The eighth button...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

The Siren song

The darkness calls Like a Siren’s song, Pulling me in, A place to find rest, No more pain, No more tears, No more hurt. Oh, how I want to go, But I know I can’t. I have to stay, Shackled, imprisoned, A broken body, A wounded heart, A spirit scarred. I long for the darkness, For peace. One day it will embrace me, Let me rest. But not tonight....Read On

We Smile In Photographs

Remember Donnybrook in the dark? We wandered around the park Looking for sticks for battleships or Toy soldiers you painted line-perfect stark. Remember Chinese food and Chilean wine with TV? The shows I watched you hated. "The Hills," the thrills, the ups and downs. We were rollercoasters, but we made it. Remember zombie movies watched with guns? "Imagine if you tugged...Read On

Angels of Light and Love

thank you, my angels

Into the dark I stumbled On a scary, forbidden path. As my soul was totally broken And pain doesn't even describe  What I was feeling. You're an angel Bringing me into your light Putting your wings around me, Giving me shelter and your love. You lifted me up In my darkest hour. Angels sent to me in my time of need. Strangers who became friends, Loving friends coming to my aid. Beautiful...Read On

Dreams by the sea

He said, meet me underneath the moon, Let it cast its' spell. He said, we'll do things we've never done, The stars will never tell. He said, meet me at the Milky Way, Let's dance amongst the stars. He said, I could stay 'til Saturday, Or Forever in his arms. He said, meet me by the sea, Where the ocean meets the shore. He said, he'd have me as he pleased, On my...Read On

The night is alive

The night is alive Our feelings laid bare. Many questions arise But they are for another time. I paint my name in the darkness A shimmering hue.  I pray it appears. Do you see? My sky is yours as I take you for mine....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

My Heart Rests

Breaking up is never easy to do.

Confusion Disillusion Misconceptions Delusions Illusions to my eyes Punishment and lies I hold my head and sighed Quite often I do cried Weakness, I can't abide it Strength, I will find it For I cannot Endure Any More My heart aches breaks Shudders Shakes It's like Devastation From my heart Evacuation Running away Coming back How dare I move on So attack I dared and cared When I did so...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

Sign On The Line

I need you to sign this contract, Before I commit to love you, Because I know from second hand news, That it isn't what you do. You play around with feelings, Betray none of yours to me, You want me to believe that I'm "The One", But you admit to others, you'd rather be free. I am not the first you have come to "love", And I sure as hell won't be the last, So why do I put...Read On

Again and Again

My mind has untied the ropes mooring me to reality. Again Pinging from light to light, finding universes and galaxies of new ideas forming. Again Tossing about like a ship, swimming, dodging waves. A web of threads and rope pulling me along. Again Laughing and cursing, I try it all. For now I have no need of sleep. I'm busy, my mind spinning so many plots and plans. Again Journeying...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

Infinite

It's cosmic, baby

In one breath that was ours I let go and fell away. I dipped into a dream From which I never wished to wake. Swept up into the breeze, On a warm summer afternoon A wish upon a dandelion Sent me drifting in the blue. Wings magically appeared,  So I soared into the ever high, I skimmed the soft horizon, Moving swiftly towards the purple night. I'm floating past the clouds, ...Read On

Some, Walls

passing through you.

I think I may live with too many walls around me. The thought of him Still gives me butterflies... He lingers when I least expect it. Maybe I have lost myself? I have perfectly framed images In my mind of you, Faces of your love surround me But, my tears ... My tears are so real  My heart feels  When I think of you. No hiding, Just clear moments of once was. Maybe he is...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

What will never be

Your skin on my pillow  My tears on your breast Your child in my arms My love for your child Your eyes lost in mine My eyes lost in your soul Your laughter in my heart My heart in your life Your life in my hands My hand in your hand That will never be But yet I shall dream and wish  and hope and want What will never be ...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

à la mort

As close as a beetle's eye, I scribble amore,  Silently sifting sand in my dreams,  Prosing with a sluice of swill. As Goth is to still, my quill scribes, Of bamboozling phantoms and ghosts. Grasping naught my sorrows, As a shadow overcomes a pantomime, With mythical kisses, in poetic lines, As close as a beetle's eye, I scribble amore. Now that winds of spiritual wings,  ...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

My Baby Is In Pain

My baby is in pain. I hate that. I can't feel it. But I do, I do. I feel it. My baby is in pain. My little lover is hurting, and I want to ease it. I need to solve it, resolve it. Make it better. It is so cruel, for her, for me. She feels the pain.  And my mind and heart  feel the pain, the pain. I hold her close,  and she cries, and the tears form in my eyes, and I feel the pain. ...Read On

Dream

I wish... I wish...

In the still of the night, As I lay down on my bed. Feels the blows of the wind, Hears the tick of the clock. Sleep took over, As I close my eyes. Feels your touch in my skin, Hears your voice in my ear. Is this Neverland? My mind wonders As I dream. Where I can be with you, Where all things possible. Rune03.25.15...Read On

She Waits

She waits for her man whose gone to sea.

She stands on the hill overlooking the ocean deep. The tide rises slowly as over the rocks it creeps. She keeps watch for her man, he's a long time out to sea. She blessed him as he left saying this is where she'd be. She pines for his kiss as she yearns for his loving touch. Her heart breaks every day because she misses him so much. She longs to be in his arms, safe and secure again....Read On

Threshold

You may only get to see what I want to show you, I cannot name this heat, this pull between us, but hands can ask the body anything, its darkest and sweetest yearnings laid out through the beating within your veins. Within a flowering threshold surrendering the deepest secret you've owned, whispered to me in the most hesitant timbre. But you shouldn't already know the words before...Read On

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

Maybe next time

I'll be waiting for you my Princess

Sitting on a corner, Clouded mind by the thoughts of you. Am I missing you? Your kiss, Your hug, Time when we were together. Can’t help it, we're too attracted to each other. Should I keep on waiting for your love? I could feel you tried, And I have tried, We tried, maybe we give it all we had. Maybe we didn't.  Silent tears on my cheek. Should I take another step ...Read On

Alone

Alone under a tree Time passes by As I wait for you To return. You promised me forever You said, you would be true Where have you gone I wish I knew Cologne on the wind As the leaves rustle above Voice lingering in my ear You are everywhere but here You said, twelve It’s half past one I guess I have lost You for good Please, come back to me Love me, like you said You...Read On
