Rising before me, are your eyes,.. like the stars
Embracing the light, while reflecting the moon
A room filled with people, ...yet it seems we're alone
Closer you've pulled me, as we dance to one song
Hearing old music, that we knew long ago
For, you and the night, have been here all along
Over the moon, where we wanted to be
Reaching for stars, in our own magic way
The questions I’ve asked, I know you have heard
Here and hereafter are just steps apart
Each step brings me nearer....be still, gentle heart!
Some things are intended, that we never part
The place I belong, is always with you
All things I have longed for, I've had from the start
Reaching for stars, .... I climbed over the moon
Stars shine in your eyes, as we dance to old tunes

Without words I follow you
Into the willow's sheltering shade,
Leaves softly swaying sweet welcome
Limbing a tree serenade;
Overhead song birds keep vigil
Watching love between man and maid.
Tambour rythym of two hearts
Racing, impetuous and free,
Yearning for love's sacred moment
Secretly shared with a willow tree;
Two lovers tryst, my husband with me.
October 5, 2014
Her eyes float like butterfly’s
Every time he passes by
It is love in his eyes
So much that he cries
Her eyes glow when she sees him
Enough to be the sun
Ruther than the dazzling blue they are
Matt’s eyes for Sharon
Are sweet and with out bitterness
Now they have fond each other they wont let go
That sultry night
Heavenly Hot He came
Endearing and Exciting
Like a summer scented waft
Oceanic eyes all over me,
Vulnerable and virtuous to his kiss
Enchanted by the moment's bliss
All I am I gave to him,
Forbidden fantasies He fulfilled.
Face to face We bid adieu
Away He sailed in distant waves
Iridescent shadows of his smile
Reminisce memories of last embrace.
Not for the contest,but inspired
by Regina Riddle's Romance contest
a fiction write
Fighting again – what a shock
Our love seems to somehow be blocked
Really, let’s fix this mess
End bad feelings, distress
Every trial we’ve been through
Remember how much I love you
M oment by moment the hours tick by,
I n each one I wonder and ask myself why,
S ince you have left me I feel so alone,
S o utterly empty when I should have known,
I nviting you into my heart wasn#t wise,
N ot when I knew you had other ties,
G one now the laughter of warm Summer days,
Y ou took them all with you, not wanting to stay.
O nly you coulld get under my skin like you did.
U ntil you came along I was just a big kid.
T hen I met you and everything changed,
E xcept for the fact that you were estranged,
R ecently leaving a home and a wife,
R evealing to me you still wanted that life.
I n all that you said and all that you did,
B ut I wanted you so I put in my bid,
L ike a fool I gambled my all and I lost,
Y ou were honest with me and well worth the cost.
Don't ever let yourself get caught up in an affair.
When it's over it's just not worth the pain and embarrassment.
If someone is married they are off limits and if you are married you are not free to sample the other stuff out there.
You could lose everything for a cheap, very temporary thrill.
Let cooler heads prevail and don't let your loins think for you.
This poem was written to convey this message.
It is , however pure fiction so don't feel sorry for me. ;)
For Aye, Aye And A Mistress Contest by Debbie Guzzi
A tender smile, a fleeting glance
Missed beats of hearts and minds in trance
One feels a sense of something whole
Rest warm and soothing in the soul
Outshining aura’s brilliant glow
Upsurge of passions soon bestow
Strong flowing currents charged with fire
Now fanned and fed by love’s desire
Emboldened hearts combine to share
Surrender fears…lay each soul bare
Soon bond as one, their love declared.

Altruism sprinkled with lots of hopes and loving care
Reaching for the sun and spreading warmth to many souls

Energetic grandchildren are fertilized with play
Neila My Forever Love, The Gardener of My Dreams
©2013 Rick Zablocki
The first time witnessing the twain mountain peaks,
High above the echoes of our heart beat,
Erected I stood, in awe I stare, with eyes devouring nature’s beautiful souvenir.
Below the Twin crags fingers softly stroll along a sweat drenched path.
Inch by inch digits artfully tread around a shallow furrow.
Racing heart beats are like the wings of a thousand sparrows.
Down in yonder valley two fingers gently creep.
Skin shivers on the mound where the fescue freely grows.
Along the cleft, in the distal knoll, a tributary streams.
Near the wet land is a cave, a place of fertile dreams.
Desire drives daring digits to dive deeper into the warm unknown.
Tell me lover, tell me more about the birds and the bees.
How did the stork bring mother a girl like me?
Every time you’re next to me, what is it that I feel?
Blazing like a fire is this tension in my blood.
Enthralled me with your touch
Engulf me in your love.
Serinade me with these words: "I love you, oh so much."
I caress you in my arms
and your beauty alarms me...
your soft skin disarms me
and your musical voice charms me...
I lose myself within you
everytime our lovemaking begins a new...
And I knew in that moment
that I had to vent my sentiments
I love you and my essence would plead too
that I drink you, I eat you, and I breath you
...I need you!...
By Soul's Floetry
Dazzling and inherent beauty
Inspiring ability within
Animating my e-motion
Maximizing my passion
Onto gravitating excellence
Needed to have my precious
To your lips, I find LOVE...
Upon your face, I find LIFE!
Living with you all through the years
I lived a life that would meant forever...
Promises will be fulfilled,
each day that we're together
So many dreams will be accomplished
with a love that never ends!
Between rainfall and the glint of night pearls
enchanting is air, a minty cologne
where toes go barefoot to wade and unfurl
into a pour of lips glowingly sewn.
Touches ripen the aftertaste of dew
catching a stardust with beguiled ardor
heady the flight of promises renewed
even the mist hums an intimate lore
drenched in words,”You are my forevermore…”
Regina Riddle's Romantic Acrostics
Time and fate must have connive as they
Remembered: You and I..
Unforgettable are your shining blue eyes,
They are more beautiful than any stars.
Heartbeats then spring in swings of summer blooms.
Accident, they said it before,
But I believe, our rendezvous: a tiger lily style.
Opposite we are, yet our chemistry a perfect mix.
Up down to cold fire situations,
These differences brought about strengths.
Firework feelings fish to
Oceanic tides as you and me come close in rhyme.
Reasons, a candle lighted dinner of bridge and grudge,
Enveloping us both in warmer lights.
Verdict of love is a truth about forever risk.
Encountering solitary hearts to thrive
Round sick health raptures stroking eternal love.

Like a candle,
you sacrifice yourself...
In every tears you shed,
I know you suffered
Giving me warmth, hope and life
How noble is your love!
To die and lose yourself,
just to pull me away from darkness
I love you darling for your devotion and unconditional love
We've had a special relationship since the day we met
I've only to ask for help my dear and you've been there for me
Lying with you everyday you whisper tender words in my ear
Later we'll make love and I'll fall asleep in your loving arms
Lovely romantic gifts such as chocolates, candy and flowers
Over the years you've given me to show how much you care
Valuable than gold are the memories we've shared my love
Evermore to be in my heart and remembered each year from now
You're my sunshine in the morning and my stars at night
Our first kiss is one that I'll remember the rest of my life
Until I met you I didn't know what it meant to be loved
As I walked towards you down the aisle on our Wedding Day
Looking very proud as you stood there in your black suit
Waiting for me to join you at the altar with a smile on your face
As I stood beside you there, together we recited our vows
You and I were now joined as one, as husband and wife
Since that day we've been on a journey side by side for life.
Valentine's Day is very special to us because it was the day that my husband proposed to me as well. It's a time for Lovers.

A heart for your glove,
Friend with some flare,
I’m the one, which is true.
Sailing across the ocean blue,
Right before your eyes,
Behind your path, below the skies,
Like a forever friend you know.
A guardian with special glow,
Bridge not me before my start.
Over previously broken heart,
Troubled days and nights are gone.
Water washes your heart at dawn.
I want you to believe my words.
Will you listen to singing birds?
Ease all the ills of your soul.
Your heart is my only goal.
Mind not, my passion will console.
Can’t get you out of my head
Oh pretty woman
Under the moon of love
Reach out I’ll be there
Sometimes when we touch
Hopelessly devoted to you
It must be love

Always, I will find no end
Remember with you, there's no room for loneliness
May I hold you tight
As it is the last?
Give me your love,
Give me your trust
Existence of sufferings,
Days of sorrows
Days of turmoil
Or in whatever wave or storm
Now and forever, you'll never be alone!
L ips sending me
O ver the moon with
V isions of
Up to the sky where there millions of stars
I've noticed you because you're so bright!
Now deep at the ground where the precious diamonds reside,
I believe you're the precious gem of my heart!
I know you stand out among others
Very sure this love of mine would be forever...
Endless vows and sweet romance
Right there where God gave us a second chance!
So our dreams would be fulfilled to accomplish our fate
Every falling star would be a sign of love that springs within our hearts.
SUMMON the deity of love to become visible
HEAR the cry…of a man’s lost soul!
ASCEND and occupy the throne of my wishes
KEEP all the stars together to fulfill my dreams
EVICT the forces of loneliness and heartache
SUPPRESS the strength of sorrow and grief
PERNICIOUS intentions must be cancelled
EVEN our self-serving and selfish motives must be deleted
ACQUIRE all the divine power inside your wholeness
REAP all the feelings of a good harvest
EXTRACT the juice of a good heart and pureness
“let our heart and soul be nourished!”
Blue and wide is the blanket we have spread absorbing the sun's heat,
Enamored as Romeo and Juliet we feel what they felt: an increasing heartbeat;
Anticipating soft touches, followed by ardent kisses until moonlight arrives...
Cuddled as they were, we ignore the glances of everyone taken by surprise.
Hushed words must remain whispers, if we are to satisfy our sensual needs.
Bottles filled with messages are brought in by rolling waves, is ours still unread?
Lovely seagulls gather on splashing rocks, watching a lonely lady who weeps,
Another heartbreak for someone who was happy in life, now completely sad;
Knowing the pain of betrayal, she will learn by error not to trust anyone again.
Enticed by desire, we must roll back onto that soft blanket and revive romance,
Totally unaware of our surroundings, we lose ourselves and become intense;
Beholding what others never do, we know that faithful lovers always win.
There's exceeding joy, an indefinite yearning to explore love in ways so new,
Neither the distant stars nor the close moon refuse to shine on a blanket for two;
Grand as ever is their presence, luminous and breath-taking is their gleam...
Onward they will slowly move, while we still embrace and continue to dream.
P act with wild love, suchlike riot act of flames on sun.
A ttract and magnify love, subtract pain.
C ontroling motions of sexual act, as I pact you overreact.
T iny sweet taste of vanilla extract, silencing your sensual
speech act,enabling the act of you being pact.

Tell me my love, against the rain, against the dark
If always inside your heart
True love has been truly marked
And it will never sink no matter what
Never will it fade, never will it banish
I will never leave you even in darkness
Can't you see my love for you is endless!
Transfer your warmth=passions' embrace.
Ravished love,yet patience refrain.
Embellish the scent that allures me in.
Moistened lips,lay a silk shine.
Breathe your candy apple perfume.
Lavished bliss in satin sheets.
Elusive light on sheltered moments.
Descent of night,still hands entangled.
Loathe the end,''Must the sun rise?''
Eager for unwanted despair to cease.
Groveling eyes that weep.
Solace sweet rosemary cheeks for days of tempted impulse.

Secrets of love within your heart
Truly shown in your eyes every time you smile
And the moment you give me a kiss
Rolling thunder to my heart exists!
Win or defeated, conquered or triumphed
Always faithful, allegiance is sure
Rely on me, whenever you fell and wounded
So many nights I pray that you come back
to continue the love we left behind...
Night seems so long
And loneliness strikes like a storm
Running away from miseries
Closing my eyes can't hide the emptiness
I know, I can't be with you
Sorry, I can't stop loving you
Saying my prayers that may time run so fast
Up to the moment when fate reaches your heart
So that when I find you again....
'your love will ease all the pain!
The bluest skies, don't seem so blue. And the stars seem a little dimmer too. Now that your around , you put 'em all to shame. Let me break it down 'cause what I'm tryin to say is, no one gets me, like you when you kiss me. Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band. I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue. I've never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you. You know i love u with all my heart and we got the realest relationship ever and im happy ! And i see that some girl is goin to call out my name all because you wont talk to her because of me lmao she can fall back for real ! haha but i guess we gotta get to sleep and i get to be so lucky to wake up in the mornin laying right next to you love you baby and I always will.
Charles is my man, and cool as can be
And I know he truely loves me
I feel the same about him, with all my heart
I have my times when I want to rip him apart
But he would do anything for me
And I think he is faithful to me
But if he is not, what man is?
It will soon come to light,
But there will be no fight
I would gone and let him go
And tell him so long
Hope you have a good life
Cause I am not willing to pay that price

Wanting relentlessly so passionately me.

Tenderly so gently how you love on me.
Softly so sweetly you kiss me.

Ever so gently kissing me.

And dry your tears because my heart would really break!

Yesterday I found a tear stained love letter All the promises how it all would be better
My eyes are very clear and dry now
Troubles of then are troubles of now
Seemed so long ago those days surreal
So I found a letter of tear stained love unsealed Far back in the recesses of my broken heart
Away from the lock and key emotions restart
Now tears flowing growing from a fruitful life
It was not meant that you were to be my wife
Looks can be deceiving giving the benefit of the doubt
As to set it free if it returns it's yours it never was it turns out
Though as cliche as the love crying in the rain
They're with me even today just memories unlike you
Here to stay is another keeping promises away from the blue
To see the tears of joy streaming down my face
Stay awhile witness the arms of a loving embrace
Oh I found a tear stained love letter
I think it is from you trying to make things better
Believe me it was kept all this time with care
In the locket of my heart to one day share
Yesterday I found a letter of tear stained love
Passion with true love I sincerely seek,
As I set my eyes on you ,my voice quavers,
Sweet sensation runs through my spine as I was
Stunned by your personality and zeal for kindness which is
Inspiring and full of affection that can melt a stone heart,
Over a wire gauze of pride ,weakness and emotion,
No lady has ever made me feel this way-tantalizing!.

My thoughts are often filled with longing
Yearning for a love to call my own
Thinking of strong arms to hold me;
Hands so loving they touch my very soul.
Overjoyed by his attentions I turn to face my love.
Unabashedly, I give myself to his lips
Grasping his very essence towards me,
Hungry and demanding; we become one.
To him I am his dream, the one he has long
Searched for; meant to be his love forevermore

In The Mood For Love Again
Insomnia comes on again
Night slows the pace of nature
The show girls hit the clubs
Hide from love
Ethereal sounds fill the air
Music comes from everywhere
On Tuesdays drinks are free
Only police can keep the peace
Drunks walk the streets like zombies in a sleep
For hours finding nothing there
Ordinary couple’s watch their children slumber
Remembering when they themselves were younger
Love would fill their waking hours
Over bridges and past the mighty towers
Vigilance and light would guide them on their walks
Eternity was always with them in their secret talks
As they found their favorite bar
Geared up to party near and far
And give the night a chance to find romance
Intrinsic in loves eternal dance
Night clubs fill in that void to love again once more

May Heavens bless you today,
Young Lilly of Yoruba tribe.
Like sun shining upon caked sheabutter,
Is your resurrecting touch on my cheek;
For joy returns speedily to my moody heart,
Even as you wrap me in your nursing hands.
Cold of loneliness once froze me up,
How warm is the sweet smile on your face,
And when you shroud me, like shell its snail;
Newness replaces my sloughing age;
Goddess of love can not be kinder,
Even when I think my sun is eclipsed,
Rising it is, because you truly care.
Youthfully you gaze
Our hearts are ablaze
Uniting us in spirit
Awesome is this feeling
Rich in my heart
Embracing my being
Moments shared with you are such a pleasure
Your love my darling, I really do treasure
Visions of you, my hearts thief
Astonishingly excites me, beyond belief
Lost in your bliss, I’ll always be
Elated by your presence, naturally
Nourishing my heart, we blend seamlessly together
Twined like rope, infused with love forever
Insatiable is our love, memorable are our nights
Noticeably missing when you’re not in my sight
Everlasting is our love and intertwined are our hearts.

Dear wife I dedicate love for you in more than one word.
Excitedly you call me your dear husband with sincere love.
Delivering laughter and passion, that we share every day,
I adore every part of you, even words that seem unheard.
Cause my dear wife; I have selective hearing they talk of.
Actually, even when I don’t admit, I hear all that you say.
Telling you each day, I love you; seems not enough to me.
I have love and respect, for the love that comes from thee.
Only the Angels in heaven know my true feelings in esprit.
Now I display eternal love, placing it upon Heavens marquee.

FELICIA (dedicated to the efforts of all on the HIV/AIDS scourge)
Rapturous ecstasy emanates from the town
Everyone, everywhere spoke of this damsel
She has just newly packed into town
Gossips could be seen around in their clusters:
"Who is she and where is she from?"
More to that, like a magnetic attraction
Felicia draws the attention of residents to herself
Wives are holding tight to their husbands;
The surely of Felicia is surely a threat.
Not even with her skimpy skirts and dresses
Felicia cuts the image of an angel
With her flawless grammar and sense of humour
The bulge of her regions make lookers apopletic
Her steps typify the menacing walk of a cat
She has all it takes for men to turn around
Society people want to have a taste of her
Women desire her to boost their ego
The mighty, the influential and intellectual inclusive
A King once offered her half of his kingdom
A Governor dangled a mouth-watering contract
A Vice Chancellor even offered her 'Medicine Admission'
Felicia suddenly became cheap and accessible
Initial ego and applause faded into thin air
She went up for the Goliaths to chew,
She came down for the crawling to lick.
She offered her body, a ransom for all
Promiscous men were happy to have their fill
Gloom, sorrow and tears soon pervaded the town
The toll of death was rising by the day
Surviving men depict postures of 'Somalian famine'
Their blood almost drained to the marrows
There was a peculiarity in their deaths
Only those who pitched tents with Felicia are victims
Soon the mist began to clear
I then could see beyond the ordinary
I'd ransacked every material available for clarity
The word of knowledge then came from ABOVE
The second name of FELICIA is AIDS

Beautiful girls go bouncing by
Each suit designed to catch the eye

Catch rays while lounging on the sand
Heavenly bodies to be sure

Laughing, teasing, acting coy
Attempting to attract a boy
Neath their amber colored glasses
Keeping score as each boy passes
Emotions rising like the tide
Trying seriously to decide
Between the varied beach-boys who
Intentionally show off near you
Never letting on that they
Get giddy when you look their way
Oh if you'd just come out and play
