I'm leaving now, but here is a reminder
'Twill bring to you the days we walked through rain
So when you wish to feel my hand in yours
Or stroke your dripping hair-- Then kiss the rain
Though leaving now, I wish I could be with you
So when you feel o'erwhelmed with grief or pain
And long for my caress upon your face,
The rain will touch instead-- So kiss the rain
Whenever you have tho'ts of this sad parting
And salty tears your lovely cheeks do stain
To feel the tears for you I'll surely have
Do this, and I will too-- Go kiss the rain
Whenever you are longing for my presence
And times that we went strolling down the lane
I'll whisper soft endearments on the breeze
So heed the sighing wind-- And kiss the rain
If ever you should pine to hear me speaking
The thunder might burst forth with glorious main*
While drops that fall are sure to be my tears,
To feel them wet your skin-- Just kiss the rain
* Power or Force
This long awaited date -
a hoedown it’s to be
shy smiles as we head in
we touch hands nervously
We allemande left and do-si-do
Then both head ladies chain
and breathlessly we meet
in each other’s arms again
We swirl in sawdust on the floor
to the tune sweet Bye and Bye
Evocative is the patter
as the gold moon rises high
An anticipated moment
as the fiddle fades away
Your denim and my lace
soon lie buried in the hay
Sweet echoes of the evening
fill passion in the soul
Upon the amber straw
we both have lost control

Amidst this greenery and purple heather
Azure blue skies grace our naked souls
Beneath the Cullins on the Isle of Skye
Two in love sharing adventurous goals
On our tartan blanket facing each other
Noses in touch sharing kisses aplenty
Rapid they are in teasingly smother
Tongues now fence, complimentary
Wandering hands on porcelain skin
Gracing, caressing, she sighs as I do
Arching her back, her breasts in rise
Pert to the air, this soon to join two
Slowly in kissing crawl, to her lips I
Caressing undulations, blushing she
Our eyes meet, for they tell no lies
In loving clasp she welcomes me
Rhythmic we are in this rustic place
Seismic groans of wonderment cry
Skin to skin of loving abrasions
Two fused astride my manly thighs
Gyrating hips in sensuous grind
Internal flows await their desire
Passionate kisses now frenzied
Fusion of two in wanting transpire
My heart is set in love for thee
I sha'nt be satisfied
Until thou come along with me
The swells of life to ride
My heart is set upon thy face
So lovely, so sublime
Could I but drink thy charming grace
'Twould end my earthly time
My heart is fixed on that of thee
I find it ever true
I would thy servant gladly be
If serve I could for you
My heart is fixed upon thy voice
With silver tones and clear
To hear it oft would be my choice
Throughout my ev'ry year
My heart is set upon thy smile
Upon thy sparkling eyes
For thee I'd walk the extra mile
And comfort all thy sighs
In all, my heart is wholly placed
Within thy tender hands
To hold or break as well thou say'st
Upon life's shifting sands

"Playing With Fire"
The heat of the fireplace
enhances the spark,
we know our love
will not fade in the dark.
We kissed amongst
your presence alone
brightened my midnight.
Nothing can extinguish
your warming touch,
a lasting impression
that meant so much.
Bound to be burned
As we played with fire,
we could not resist
and gave in to desire.
This kind of scorch
I was lucky to find,
and neither of us
ever seemed to mind.
We were both engulfed
by passion's flame,
and we only have
each other to blame.

O love, my love…where in this lonesome hour
Can my heart with sweet abandon find you there?
If chance upon the wind, you do float as lotus flower
Would on my earthen bed you gladly fare?
I am your silent lover…though cloaked in gentile guise
With lips, mine own affection would I treat you
And in the twilight’s gloaming your embrace there would I prize
If fate would look away while there I greet you.
O suitors, I commend thy will to win her proffered hand
While exile finds me close enough to see
Yet mark this, would be lovers, her hand there you may find
But her gentle heart was offered first to me.
~Christopher Thor Britt
There you speak an unspoken word
within the laughs and the cries,
and I hear what goes unheard
deep in your ever-bright eyes.
When I notice you winking
there are no hidden lies,
I know what you are thinking
deep in those ever-bright eyes.
When you look right into mine,
so warmly, like the sun's rise,
I can feel them brighter shine
deep in my ever-bright eyes.
Our hearts are forever contained
in a part of us that never dies,
the soul has always remained,
deep in our ever-bright eyes.
A true-love gone to tears,
As lost-love came to be.
Sandy writes her heart out,
Through her love of poetry.
Her ex and her children,
Moved to a different state.
When left all alone it caused,
Her aching heart to break.
With a flood of memories,
Of the past and all its’ hurts.
She embedded all her pain,
In the stanzas of her work.
Her heart channeled through,
The writings of her pen.
Describing the life of love,
That she was living in.
She had found true-love,
But the love did not last.

love of romantic poetry.
it loudly and
l`m a miss
and l miss
you inside out
I miss you like
bees really miss
water for my thirst
food for my hunger
scratch for my itch
want to take
to you like
duck to water
you draw me
to you like
moth to light
you are my cake
my cup of goodies
my hot ice-cream
at night my moon
daytime my sun
your love my light
take a seat
I sold that heater
for your heat
you bathe in milk
l bask in your presence
a sublime quench
what she did not
say is that we`re close
strangers on the net!
Was it all a sweet dream or just reality?,
I sit and ponder that very thought,
During the daylight and in the nighttime,
Wondering, were we ever there or not?
A crescent moon smiled down on me,
Shedding it's white light upon the ground,
I sat amongst the petals, waiting patiently,
And it was there, that me, you found.
Lavender flower petals I did pluck,
As I was seated atop the green hillside,
Does he love me, or does he not?,
My love for you, I could not hide.
I only saw you as a dark silhouette,
A shadow that walked upon the ground,
Among silver stars and a midnight sky,
Your gentle voice was the only sound.
My darkened silhouette was no longer alone,
While yellow fireflies around me dance,
When you came to join me atop that hill,
In the meadow's softly illuminated romance.
I was embraced within your arms,
As your most tender kiss met mine,
On that one warm summer's night,
When our kindred spirits did entwine.
So sad was I when the time came to part,
As the rising sun shined golden upon my hair,
Although, what a beautiful dream it was,
When I awoke and found you there.
Waking Dreams Contest
Lovebirds sing a duet up in the clouds
tulips pucker up to kiss the butterflies,
I am surrounded here by serene beauty
with the tears of heaven in my eyes.
Where bright rainbows never fade away
and stars twinkle in the moonbeams,
yet, what is all of this beauty worth
if there is no one to share my dreams.
Still, you shall find me there someday
and maybe want to stay for awhile,
making sure that my tears in heaven
accompany only laughter and a smile.
My fingertips lightly travel
down these worn piano keys,
the memories now unravel
as I hear your favorite melodies.
I reminisce within my writing
about a time that used to be,
when your arms were so inviting
and they would hold only me.
The quiet whispers on the breeze
the first kisses that were soft,
we sat underneath the willow trees,
as my heart then sailed aloft.
I can still smell the roses, red
their petals pressed upon the page,
where your old promises lie dead
they have not withered with age.
I am daydreaming of the past
when our love seemed to be true,
a relationship that will not last
but, back then we never knew.
Isaiah Zerbst's contest - "A Daydream"
Based on the painting. "A Daydream" by Sir Edward John Poynter
It’s twilight time; we’re lying on the sand
Beneath a splendid sky, limbs intertwined.
I only have to close my eyes and then
I’m taken to this place inside my mind.
The scent of you, your breath upon my cheek,
The whisper of your eyelashes on mine;
The long and tender kiss that leaves me weak.
I’m taken to a place that is divine!
But you are far away. . . I don’t know where.
I know my fantasies cannot come true.
yet never have I ceased imagining
Since being taken hopelessly with you.
For Black Eyed Susan's Contest "Taken"
As the castle walls loomed up to the side
They met for the first time eyes open wide
Lost on the journey, not knowing what they’d find
But unlike a fairy story, their love was not blind.
They risked all they had for an hour or two
Not knowing what would happen, neither one knew
They shared a drink, and words so easy on the tongue
Not realised those words would be love before long.
Their castle they love and will never forget
The love that they found, they will never regret
The knight on his steed the girl by his side
When he offered her love he didn't take her for a ride.
She took his love; she kept it close to her heart
He suffered with her when they had to part
But they both knew it was a temporary thing
When the time is right she may wear his ring.
He must approach her parents and ask
To climb the walls of the castle what a task
But the castle where they met its doorway he knew
It was via her heart and he just had to walk through.

Her eyes are a sparkling dew inspired shade
So blue they mist with a passionate side
They stare with a loving glace on my face
Gorgeous, tender eyes, ones that come and slide
She looks at my body, a lustful sight
Brings my heart to a boil all sinful like
The love we have is our stare together
Our passion is smart, two as one alike
There’s an alarming feeling of grandeur
Kindness is a part of our lives so free
Romanticism brings delight to mind
Our sweet hearts are bringing intimacy
We hold hands together, symbol of love
Our kiss is fire, a mission of passion
Intrigue finds its way back into our hearts
Returning a love which is for certain

Diamonds In Your Eyes
Your eyes like diamonds
Sparkle now at me
Can I take that as a sign
That we two are to be?
Your eyes like diamonds
Their glare blinds my every thought
My strength is draining
This my love has wrought.
Your eyes like diamonds
Is it that you feel the same
A sparkle in your heart
Struck now by Cupid’s aim?
A delicate face, soft and white it glows
Eyes of passion exist, planted on her
She lives with supple pink lips, made to kiss
No way would I ever come and suffer
She doesn’t have an obvious nose, it’s small
Her small hands do run smoothly down her face
An influence to my heart is expressed
She moves on with a good amount of grace
I always desire to kiss those sweet lips
My finger runs down these lips of glory
Down to the perfectly formed lovely chin
Where there are tales of a romance story
There are moments when her eyes flash with pride
And her hair blends in with her rare beauty
The whole package is wonderful and true
I will forever love her, my lady
Entered into FRANK H.'s "WORD PORTRAIT" contest
To all those reading this, to all those that are awake
Take with you my love, it is there to take
Keep your spirits up; be they topped with a mixer
Raise a glass to all, for love is life’s elixir
May the New Year bring you blessings, blessings all around.
Even if it costs you, pay out for another round
I wish to all the best for you, I pray it will come true
And not only that, I have some plans especially for you.
You know who you are; at least I’d like to think
So raise a glass to us, go and have another drink
It will keep you calm until we meet and knowing I love you
Until we meet again, and watch the flame of love burn true.
The aborigine boy, his poor young heart was yearning
For the young raven haired girl, a passion was quickly burning
He was to carve his first boomerang to prove he was a man
If it returned back to him, he would carry out his plan.
He took the mulga branch and checked it was just so
The angle was correct, he couldn’t wait for his first throw
He split the branch and picked the piece that he knew would work
He had learnt from his ancestors, his walkabouts he never did shirk.
The branch he split, he took a stone and carved his mulga with care
He wanted it to fly and return, then win his maiden with raven hair
He inscribed it with his love and painted it with ochre of red
He took it to the outback and threw his first throw with a dread.
The boomerang did spin, it twisted and then dropped
The young aborigine felt his love and life, had suddenly stopped
He tried again he flicked his wrist it spun up heavenward
It spun it’s last spin and once again it was then floored.
His love was slipping away, a man he was not to be
His raven haired love, his bursting heart would never see
He tried and tried and then with a long last flick of his wrist
He had learnt the way he saw; he pounded the air with his fist.
His boomerang started to turn; it started on its first return
He danced as he watched it, and he felt his loins begin to burn
He jumped up and down waiting; he saw a glint of red
He knew he had done it, when it smacked him in the head
He had learnt to make his weapon
But his plan did not quite hatch
In learning to make the boomerang,
He forgot to learn how it to catch…
Inspiration came from Seren Roberts Poem 'Always To Return'
A glimpse of you as the sun shines
On your face in the place
Where I envision you sometimes
With me in your embrace
The scent of you the sweet perfume
Love it much when we touch
A melody a sweeter tune
Dance with me it's just us
And as long as we both shall live
We'll have each other's love
To one another freely give
Sent from Heaven above
And I will always care for you
Forever will be nice
The beauty that I see you through
It must be paradise
ONLY FOR THEE
What sweet song shall your eyes sing to me?
What harmonious music shall your heart bring to me?
What song today will bless the fact that I awoke?
And what rhythm will you urge after the robin spoke?
What angelic sound shall bless my ears?
Music only this man who loves you hears
With every syllable is born a beautiful note
As you make E minor and A major float
What flute like sound shall you induce?
And what harmony shall your lovely voice produce?
What church organ sound will be your choice?
You, my sweet, born with a golden voice
So tell me my sweet, or rather sing me a song
Any song that could never be too long
Sing of happiness, joy and being lonely for me
But please, most of all, sing forever only for me

silky smooth hair
covers my face
hands on your head
we pick up the pace
tongue rides the groove
that runs down the spine
you moan ever softly
I'm crossing the line
tugging your hair
I kiss the back of your neck
all defenses now gone
what did I expect?
now under the sheets
things start to unwind
as I stroke you so slowly
your hips start to grind
sweat pooled beside us
let's rest for a few
I'll stay here forever
just staring at you...
I see your name here and there
Suddenly, I can’t get you off my mind
I catch your fragrance on the air
Remembering when your lips touched mine
I feel your presence all around
In the night and the sunshine, warm
I would give all, and all again
To hold you once more in my arms
~Christopher Thor Britt
As the sun grew brighter each day
You let your light strike far away
To let my heart feel the beating
Of a love that is unending
I wake up just to see you laugh
As if I lose all that are tough
Like a star I fell just for you
In my days, hug me like I do
The dark cold night is my distress
When you are far from my caress
I long to see your face so bright
That the world stops at my sight
Be with me 'till I have no fears
Until the clouds empty its tears
The sun goes down but not our love
Conquer the night, put on our glove
I have the courage to alter
Just to save you from another
Stay for a while in my arms
I now hold you a pearl in clams
For me you are exceptional
Shining among girls in global
Just be with me till the world ends
To see how colors of love blends
Some people say I am insane
Yes but I take you as my lane
That refreshes me as I heave
And hope not to see you leave
I must embrace you tightly dear
I long that you will calmly hear
Words of love that touches my heart
And pierce me like a flying dart
Her words peal through my fatigued brain
They ricochet in epicycle like a torrential rain
My riddled brain cells jostle in appealing fantasy
As they transverse the trance music banging in ecstasy
Her words resonate classical moments, when,
We are in one of those escapades, as we often yen
We are in one of those romantic postures,
And I feel the prickly feeling of pleasures
Her words echo the dreamy moments, when
I feel her caressing hands on my body, then
In deep pleasure for her numerous wanks
My lower tube responds with poignant spanks
At the climax she feels the prickle pleasure
In knowing how obsessed she’s become, for sure,
That, I wield an utmost control over her
And have become her enduring catalyst as a lover.
For Black Eyed Susan contest, In a Hotel Room
Tonight we play our favorite duet
to an audience of celestial stars.
Variations over years; a song we never forget,
stroking familiar notes within each bar.
Andante: pianissimo: slow caresses as whispers,
giving attention to those sensitive keys.
Each to the other, a part we deliver;
Entwined we perform with such ease.
Allegro: increasing our synchronized tempo
as our chorus delightfully sings through.
Vibrating heartstrings deeply now flow;
enjoying our art as if new.
Vivo! As the beat of two hearts now race.
Crescendo! Intensively, climax is reached.
Pausing in arc at this euphoric place;
echos in afterglow; encores in dreams.
'The Windmiller's Guest'
I faced him, with my back to love
Above the village street.
And, told him, 'No', that I thought of
Adventures less concrete.
This land ship held no hope for me
Of life beyond this place
And, with my answer I could see
The look upon his face.
His pipe he held unsatisfied,
Still, love his only view,
Like roses past their bloom had died
And lost their fragrant hue.
The dark of the night sky: clear, unlimited space
Lights and a bright white moon, of clouds no trace
The mood suddenly changes, the lights are faded
The vault of heaven is raided, the azure invaded
Realization in a flash, the barren moon stands abashed
Now fainthearted, lily-livered, her quiet joy is crashed
Hide not your face behind clouds the color of yellow dirt
I know your phases, feel your moods, I know you`re hurt
Battered, barren, lonely, evanescent orb of night
From your cursed dance peace you`ll never find
But I`ll be your fire eater, one who devours the sun
Artemis, Luna, Diana, your true name knows none
I’m taken by your beauty
And I’m taken by your smile
I’m taken by your lashes
When they flutter over mine
I’m taken by your full lips
And I’m taken by your eyes
I’m taken by your body
When so close to mine it lies
I’m taken by your fingers
When they’re running through my hair
I’m taken by your embrace
When our bodies are both bare
I’m taken by your whispers
Of words laced with passion sweet
I’m taken by your kisses
Better far than any treat
I was taken by you then
And I’m taken by your now
I’ll be taken to heaven
And I think you know just how! ;)
Eileen Manassian Ghali
I draw purple contours
to capture your shape,
but lines fail to show
the color of your heart.
I ask for interpretations
of what your heart says,
just as Picasso spoke
to his inspiration.
I’ve seen Fall
as a beginning and ending,
and your presence in purple
shadows past visions.
Mere scratches on paper
portray more than lines,
and projections of you
tell more than words we share.
Here I am, compelled again
so powerless to fight…
A captive of intense desire
and needing you tonight…
Resistance just an afterthought
I’m way beyond that now…
Entangled in this fantasy
that captured me somehow…
Your pleasure takes my breath away
Oh please don’t let this end….
An avalanche upon me now
and soon it falls again...
Fingertips play upon your skin
An oiled caress of tranquility
Tea lights dancing like fluted whims
Relieving the days hostility
Your muscles bound in tensions vice
Neath kneading hands must yield
Surrender now you braids of strife
By my tempered force to heal
My hands pause in deep listening
Over the landscape of your ravaged terrain
Anointing oils of clove left glistening
My touch the oasis for your pain
Your body ignored too long for touch
These hands hold a vocabulary of moves
To soften all those hardened edges
When flesh cries out to be smoothed
Like watercolor poetry you melt
With moans to be envied by lovers
Nurturing pleasure and comforts pelt
With emotions yet to discover
Pressing lightly upon your temples
Bathing my fingertips in your hair
I hear you sigh with slightest tremble
The sullen purging of buried cares
Such love is this received
Unmatched but by its giver
For no rapture given nor ache relieved
Then to love him with the tips of my fingers
Your dreamy bold curious unstable eyes
Juicy lips mounted with sober plausible sexy ties
Though silent yet propulsive pensive piercing voice
Curly hair, bare shoulder possessing fervid demise
All is enough to drive my sincere soul over flies
To you alone
My heart is sold
As the days go
Your beauty grows
As time flies by
i have to sigh
When you walk by
And catch my eye
I cannot think
Or even blink
As it may seem
Only a dream
To you alone
I have to sigh
And just walk by
Your beauties glow
All I want is to be with you
Baby that is a fact
You know I want to sleep with you
One day we will do that
Until then I am satisfied
With fantasizing 'bout
What it's like to enjoy the ride
Before I turn you out
Let me be the one that you love
And I the one you need
And be there to remind you of
The things that you should heed
Everywhere you need to go
Let me take you there please
Let me the only one you know
Be that which you believe
Let me be the one that loves you
When it's time to look to others
When it's time to sew seeds
Let me be what you desire
And all throughout the day
I will be what could transpire
If you would let me stay
I walk alongside the seashore crimson,
Reflection of the twilight of sky,
That precedes the raunchy and beamy night,
Moon shines and stars dance around.
Sickle of moon slivers my heart,
Playing hide and seek, discover my soulmate,
Under vastness of expanse and seductive wind,
Cover of colourful leaves, earth amatory.
The twosome go bawdy and carnal,
Holding me in his arms, gets me close,
I feel his breath on my neck,
And his skin next to mine.
Gazing at his face in moonlight,
These moments are special and divine,
Sultry and aphrodisiac, enamoured in love,
As if never to part, till death in unison!!

THE EYES OF REVERENCE
Not like a mother’s life for her child
Nor anything crazy or wild
Just a man’s love for the woman who saved him
And secured the walls before his life caved in
Not like a sister’s love for her brother
But a lover of mine like no other
The warmth of her hand when mine grows cold
A woman worth more to me than platinum or gold
Not like a lover you love and finally leave
Just a woman who makes me believe
I now have a belief that a woman can love me
And doesn’t hold the threat of losing her above me
Just a man who sees a woman whose eyes tell a tale
Her eyes reflect a concern I find reverent and regale
A lady who never wavers when I do something dumb
a woman who forgives my need for drugs and wretched rum
not like a mother, a sister or relative of any kind
just the kind of lady I thought I’d never find
a person to say softened things that put me at ease
and the words “forever” and “love” are my only pleas

I’ve looked for love for many years
I’ve wondered where love’s been
I’ve longed for love to find me
I’ve wondered if and when
Love must have took a wrong turn
Love must have lost its way
Love seemed it wasn’t coming
My heart grew fainter by the day
There were times I thought love came
But it wasn’t really true
It was the shadow of the sun
It didn’t compare to You
You’ve opened my eyes to see now
The most radiant of light
A love to shame the fairy tales
A King more valiant than any knight
And all that time I looked for love
I needed only look within
Love was with me every moment
Love is found in Him
When He brings my earthly love
He will be strong and true
And he will know that God is love
And he will love me too
I hate going to school
BUt, I love going to the pool
I hate when I get worried
I always start to scurry
I hate school lunch
But, I don't mind the brunch
When I eat the chicken patty
I act a little bratty.
No More Elementary
PLAY SOMETHING SOFT AND GLOW
Put on the music
put that candle's wick aflame
turn down the lights
and let's share a romance only you and I can claim
put on a slow song
and take my hand as we stroll to the beat
i'll lead you to the way they dance in Heaven
and the two of us will both feel the heat
lay softly against the rug in front of the fire
now think of a place of peace where we could go
embrace me and face me so you can see my lips
as we kiss by the fire's glow

I watched her walk into the light
With hair so long and black like coal
Her beauty's such a great delight
With breast that look like two young foals
I look her way she gives a smile
The likes of which none can compare
I melt within, while my heart takes flight
There's something about her that is so rare
I walk her way I cannot rest
Until I find out who is this lass
She speaks with words that are undressed
Her eyes peer at my soul as though through glass
We spend all night in a deep embrace
Of words and thoughts til mornings light
She has within her such a grace
This lass I'll love with great delight
I’ll to the Isle and stay awhile
You know, it was just a caprice
to be with you and seek for peace
but now your smile doth me beguile
My sweet, our love can never cease
When I saw you. Epiphany!
come rain or shine you must be mine
Oh now dear love give me a sign
may I enter felicity
My love is not ephemeral
and nor, my love, ethereal
it is my dear ineffable
but is in fact quite physical
