Midnight Secret

*Midnight Secrets*   

In the dark, I came alive 
I found my way 
~into the light

Camouflage in lace, my skin glisten, 
Towards the wind, I listen! 
Skin of envy and gold, 
My limbs suddenly unfold, 
Gracefully I follow the air,
I found myself without a care, 
Every moment, every feeling felt erotically insane, 
Seductively, the night whispers my name, 
A freedom flight 
~into the night.
My breast, not of a little girl 
Beyond the hazels, into another world 
My life until this point had been a riddle 
My fingers slither, a play without a fiddle 

Circles with motion, 
Vibrations and self-soothing lotion, 
I touch my self gently, 
Thinking of you relentlessly,
Looking around, 
The night echoes a whimpering sound, 
I want to see, and embrace the secrets inside me,
I squeeze the damp enigma charcoal sheets-
Moaning and moaning, repeatedly. 
Tucking my silk pillows, groping my knees,
I rub my lids slowly, satisfactorily complete, 
Falling back into the realm of counting sheep.

If My Love For You Was Greater

if my love for you was any greater the trees would  line up in poetic forms ...awe you in sonnets written... allow winds to cool your face...  to trace it with natures hand. all the oxygen that covers all the waters rise, supercharge the breath of my emotion. mountains would melt, shed their peaks like tears of joy. even the arid deserts serve up fruits,  their prickly pears peeled on a platter. sunset would pause and sunrise hurry... ...exist in a paradox to herald your presence. petals would climb their stems  regroup to bloom again. butterflies re-cocoon  emerge as glorious fairies  for all children to adore. the skies would willingly  shape, etch,  paint,   frame my exuberance. the planet would swell, the galaxies expand. in the endless depth  of my singular love  i hold you dear, safely contain you  in my tender smile, for now, forevermore. 16~10~2014 Sponsor: Rhonda Johnson-Saunders Contest Name: Your Most Romantic Poem of 2014

In The Stars

       Written in The Stars 

Two hearts bleached by the sun
        A poem's - fallen wish
               The Love 
            Of A Life Time

Majestic beams fall from heavens medow
Two hearts sewn by the constellation
Under the moons glow 
         You and I
Staring up into the Starry Sky
Tonight we sit under the dazzling diamond dust
Our eyes feel and meet tonight 
Stars twinkle a poem of each paired heart
Listen................... The God's Whisper!

What Is Love? 
They asked
A wish so gentle by the stars 
Greeting young couples heart  
Poor but, in love
Mockeries of old shadow
Light embracing this Auspicious moment 

-Aster Flares-
Intrigued by a sad lovers tale
Two souls forever rich- 
Sharing eternity through celestial bliss
Gravitating  in a world owned by the stars
Unfortunate turn of events, 
Romeo & Juliet
Collapsing stars rising with a hymn 
From the moment they fell
Only to reveal how beautiful-- 
-- the stars in the dark
Ever so wealthy, around Orion's Belt
Taking notes of every rhyme, every heartbeat

Stars fall every eve entering the atmosphere
Seeping through the soul making love a part of light
Illusion of permanence
Fireflies Flaring up  
A love that lives last longer than moments
Zodiac unfolds the lines
The stars tell you, who you are 
Gaze upon the infinity
Follow the Northern star
Beneath your peaceful splendor 
They will bow
The evening star, 
"My Star Of Love"  
Like glitter dust upon a timeless shore
Never will the memory of love be gone
Look up at the stars,
For some where out there 
I read about YOU in a poem.

The Trail of a Raindrop

Sudden rain brought me under your umbrella for the first time. For the first time you were so close to me with your fragrance. The umbrella was not big enough to cover both of us. A raindrop was trickling down your forehead. I was following it's trail without listening to you. Your words couldn't touch me like the raindrops falling outside. The trail of that raindrop uncovers some secrets for me, your eyes were bluer than I thought and your dimples deeper. I discovered a beauty spot below your left ear lobe. Today,I know about all your beauty spots.... But still now in a rainy day I want to walk with you under the same umbrella.

All Women Are Precious Gems

My love, the world is ours,
its reflective sapphire oceans,
its turquoise pine tree forests,
its topaz colored days,
its moonstone lit evenings.
My love, I'm certain it's us.

The amethyst citrine painted sunset 
called our names right from its onset.

You are my never ending wide open sky
with a red orange coral moon up high.

So radiant is your glow, a sparkle in flight
how you shine - a spectrum of colors like light 
through a crystal clear white garnet.
Your hair like flowing strands of  pearls, crests
lightly to sit brightly on your opal shaded breasts
with their dark red inviting rubies set.

Your emerald green stare gentle with its powers
like diamond brilliant rays during sun showers.

Your divine allure
so true and pure
oft blinds me
and when I see
I see only you
like the jade dew
covers the morning lawn
on a sardonyx dawn.

You are the gem drives my joyous life,
the precious stone keeps my dreams alive.

You are indeed a jewel rare,
"who" I ask "could compare?"

The Silence Of My Lust

There was sweat on my brow, beads of them as I approached her. I was a young man, still green. She was a mature woman like the long blades grow free in the lush of nature. My hand in hers she took me into her warmth. Nervous, shy you could hear grass grow in the quiet of my fear in the silence of my lust. I knew nothing. As we rolled in the dew of sex as I fumbled and groped, I in some instinctive wisdom entrusted myself fully to her. She set our bodies in a fluid motion my virginity now neatly cut. We spent days as I explored the fresh sweet air of 'us'. It was then I became a man. Learned how you hold a flower how you manicure the stem how you water the soil how you delicately hold the petals. It was then I became a gardener. A gardener worthy to tend a garden so vital. It was then I learned how to love a woman. 30~12~2014 Armand

Just a Bit

he enters the room coyly she tugs her skirt just a bit enough to reveal her shapely legs tossing back her golden tresses she shakes her head just a bit hoping to attract his eyes tiny shift of the derriere she takes long, gentle strides just a bit has he seen her yet? bending to reveal cleavage she winks as she pours champagne just a bit a taste of ambrosia from a vixen “Sometimes less is more,” she says in a deep, sensual tone “Just a bit, I saved the best for you.” in the mirror she sees his eyes they follow her just a bit before he saunters to her side he kisses her hand warm and soft just a bit camouflaged emotions become clearer other partygoers stay inside he coaxes her with flashing green eyes just a bit as he leads her to the lakeside pavilion a vision in the moon’s soft light she moves closer just a bit and whispers demurely in his ear “Your place or mine?” they giggle just a bit "Should we call the babysitter?"

My view on seduction, is that what you're asking me? Specifically love, my thoughts on loving a woman, that's what you want to know? Have you ever seen the image of a woman in the ocean while walking along the beach? You know how the shape is all there but void of definition. You know how the shape is sort of broken, how the lines are not distinct. I wonder if that is what we men have done to women, they who we treasure most. How often do they have to hide as a replica in order to protect our egos. To take a back seat because we have a need to drive the car to be in control. So if we don't allow them to be whole... but you know what else, what if they are perfectly defined the fault is in how we view them. What if that is them we have no role, no blame to assume. What if that is exactly the way they want it to remain, shadows of different intensities. What if they want to be a series of reflections. What if the ripples in the water are of their making. I want to hold a woman. Hold her completely defined. learn more about her everyday because I hold her like a book I'm reading. I will tell you this I don't have a need to know everything. If she wants a locked room that she has the only key to, that makes sense to me. Still I want her heart, her laugh, her tears I want the feel of her flesh and I want her defined. I want to see her not just her likeness. I want her smile I want all the expressions of her face. So you're walking along the beach. The relationship is new for the most part you are with her facsimile but if you look down you can see her feet, not just her impression. I can build from that. She is steady she is with me. You want my view on seduction? You have to accept a basketful of contradictions, you have to read the book accept there will be constant re-writes you have to at least see her feet from day one. If you want to make it to the top you have to start at the bottom don't forget there are some great stops on the way up. Seduction? love between two people that's important. You wouldn't treat your career lightly. Get it right. Make sure she leaves footsteps along the beach. That is how you seduce a woman... ...listen to her ...respect her interested in her career ...her wants, her needs ...her opinions ...remember ...don't talk a good game act.
07/10/2014 Sponsor Justin Bordner Contest Name The Heart Of Seduction I understand this is a extremely different view of seduction and might not fit what Justin is looking for. This is his contest and I wholeheartedly respect that. For my taste this poem is very seductive. In it I share what I believe it takes to seduce a woman.

My Whole Body Shivered

I watch your lips move as you speak, your tongue curls against your teeth. I feel your smile as we share a look. I want to know your likes, your dislikes. What are your hopes and dreams? I want to hear you laugh. Walking, your hand touches mine, we play with the simple touch of each other's hands. I don't tell you but my whole body shivers. An hour passes, it feels like seconds. We lie looking up, I look but all I can see is you. I don't tell you but my whole body shivers. Your face is etched permanently on my eyes. Your stare is gentle. I feel sand under my feet. I hear waves against the rocks. I don't tell you but my whole body shivers. We are standing at the steps in front of your house. Sitting holding hands. We never moved from that first spot. It was my heart that traveled miles. An angel slowly dims the lights. Day turns into night. I don't tell you but my whole body shivers. You lean an inch. I lean two. My heart like a bonfire ignites. I swim a blissful ocean. Our lips touch. We move closer. Our mouths slowly, ever so slowly, meet and part. We kiss. I say good night. I walk away the fullness of you embedded in my heart. I didn't say - but you know - my whole body shivered. Love above all else Love Armand

The powder of white sand holds her flesh close to his musk pelvis as she gasps with the murmured waves trembling on the coast of a fragrant mouth against a manly tongue, and they lay on hidden grass in an old Ipanema cove where rippling strokes fondle the east and north of her sylph-like curves: amidst the liquid Brazilian dusk, her flowing hair sinks from the lapping of crest in rhythmic grinds; tanned fingers exploring a soft canal of a nymph's heightened pleasure… by the sea- bend, he pulls her creamy thighs like a driftwood sailing afloat upon each quivered abandon while they melt under balmy trees… without the need to speak.

The Color Of Our Blood

oh how i love the color red red is love and love is red. i painted a moment used a palate with every shade of red,  only red. that is the color of our love, of pain of lips of blood of skin all and more is our love. used a  palate of reds painted a moment painted you, and with depth of color i captured you. perfectly! i never spilled a drop, my brushes, my knives, my hands, my eyes, they all served me well. moments are not easy to create. how precious they are, difficult to inhale fully but even strained  i would always take you all in. the fullness of you all in. i would never spill a drop. me? i'm all in. my creation takes form stands and walks, i follow, paint, not a drop  do i spill. when you offer gifts they need to be special they need to be - well thought out. oh! how well thought out you are. oh! what moments we have shared. life, so kind to us, the time we've spent. if a philosophy teacher, if one asked me, "what's it all about" i would say "you" i would ace that test. nothing exists in its full majestic glory until i experience it with you. i would lift the sun every morn draw it down every eve illuminate the sky fantastic. every morn. every eve. a lover's night under the moon, part the clouds if like curtains they blocked our view, if like a wall they blocked our light. now, my moment painted i observe. my hand nowhere to be seen it was you guided this piece. you and me my love surrounded in red  against a red background  and not a detail unclear. our hands holding. our lips touching. you are my breath the beat of my heart neatly painted in red, perfect! it is us, our love is red every shade and every tone is we. 05~12~2014 Maurice Yvonne

My Love Knows No Form My Love

one with the music  a vestibule for magic  love fills the night air Let my aura deep red spill onto the page,  I an instrument in the name of poetic rage,                                                L                     O                   V                    EVOL...VES Into a voice deep and vibrating, with words feathered and lulling. We are love... Love!, nothing and everything. With you in the serenity of nothing that my love is everything.  scampers a bright moon  gifts liquid life a lit view  watch them rendezvous i wrote you a star covered night built you a sun with a dimmer light i turned it down warm and low called it a moon, made it glow i rhymed you an early morning hush so quiet you could hear a person blush i sketched a fully carpeted globe dressed it in a thick soft robe i painted it in greens, blues and a palette full your own flower garden with no weeds to pull i sung some words, some harmonized notes strummed you a new world, one that floats ...a pyramid each and every word, romance... I  do know my true love  it will make you  light headed but free. Space is that way, you know but you'll adjust. A small price  to pay these days for liberty. A chance to live in a world of ours, just us together and lives of all kinds. Maurice Yvonne

Drenched In One Another

Yes I can still see her... through rose colored glasses, imagined! In fact, She is gorgeous. I remember saying... or at least thinking out loud ...You take my breath away, She was a perfect site to behold; I am sure men literally fell like pins at the alley, as she entered a room ...and yet she was gentle, unaffected by her physical beauty, she had so much love in her heart. Naked our needs locked. I can't remember ever having felt anything or anyone so soft. Her skin against mine I was at the foot of the horizon. Her blue eyes true cleansed my sins. Her hair flowed like a sheet of fine black sand, like a tapestry made from a beach ebony in color. . Trapped in love I pulled her to me by her thick dark mane, blanketed her pear shaped breasts. Her lips seared mine as we shared a small Scape of air. She punished me over and over again with her lingering touch. Does ecstasy ever end if you play it over and over in the annals of your memories like a looped tape. Her lips were my lips my tongue was her tongue, no space separated us. I have touched the first day of spring, tasted the first snowflake of winter. heard the leaves change color on an autumn day, I have even witnessed summer remove her golden robe, watched it fall to her feet and stared as she stood in all her glory. I have done all of that but when she spread her wings this goddess when she held me, my life stopped beating, and for just an infinitesimal moment of time I knew what my heaven would be. I was free. Free in the rapture of the moment. We sunk into one another and danced a tango of infinite sex. Nothing mattered anymore, she had tore out my heart, fed it to me and it tasted like the ambrosia of kings. The gates had opened, the angels had fled, and I wandered through a mass of sexual satisfaction. My mind was in a tailspin of romantic imagery. Her voice swept me back to consciousness as a single tear rolled down her cheek and fell on to her smile. We were both silky wet and sported the scent of fresh dew in the morning. We whispered, as our words tip toed through the air like a majestic overture. We were drenched in one another, strangers, young and in lust. I have no memory of when she finally left. It must of been hours or was it days, the freedom of unconscious love knows no time. I had explored every crevice of her body, we had feasted on one another, no parts left untouched. I thought it would never end I'm not sure it ever did. She was an unframed masterpiece I do know I thanked the Angel of Fire out loud. I'm sure as I did, even though she was no longer there she answered. She had left, me unbound from the packaging that had enslaved me. It was her gift to me. A gift, I store safely the deepest regions of my passion.

Inner conflict dissolves under your lunar eclipse
playing across my fingertips and lips 
tracing the hoodoo of your hips,
causing me to burn down into cinder-sticks
reborn as a Baton Rouge Phoenix
by the gravitational pull of Jupiter
orbiting in your eyes.

Rising above the ashes,
siphoning-off the swamp,
I collide in a slippery mudslide
of euphoria, until steam blows off
and only spring water remains
raining upon soil sprung apart
by the Trident of Hermes,
exposing for us naked iron
to place into a flame
dancing along liquid-skin language.

The extraction of you being the exception,
leaves behind a hole
to bury our fortresses of tragedy
grappling in our roots;
now broken-apart by our roots,
until the last crumbling stone 
sprouts into untainted sheaths -
rigid - yet willing to bend

with the mending currents
of change. Becoming cleaner within, 
hanging onto a truth to be found 
in the wholesome speck of dirt 
longing for my fingertips and lips
to feel the hoodoo in your hips;
a complementary dish of duality
alongside your whispers bleeding 
into the blood-waves of my heart
merging with your lunar pulse.

A Unicorn spell

Opening wings spreading out
one pure beautiful image in beholding 
Gracefully embracing inside visions 
greeting Mother of pearl shimmering rainbow hues
Her horn sparkling tipped diamond 
Under the moonlight silver gleams 
Her silhouette reflecting light 
Princess wearing golden horse shoes 
One mane in softest satin silk 
Regally standing mustang wild 

Magically colored purest washed from the ocean foam 
Cascading hair scenting of burnt honey 
Eyes penetrating in baby blue awakening 
Her long lush lashes flutter and glisten 
Upon her lips last rosebud's dew 
Her coat in white like slushy snowflakes 
reflecting glass shards of crescent cradles
She roams the fields singing to the prince
it is only love that will finally set her free 
from a curse cast on her beauty 
by an evil wizard 

To be the only winged unicorn 
of it's kind in the world 
flying into softest cushioned clouds 
She dances and sings,then she stills 
In distance she listens to the sound of a flute 
And there She sees a gorgeous young man 
lying on carpets of evergreen 
along with his father,and mother the queen 
Her melodic voice like that of a jeweled string harp
hypnotised the prince 
He ran and ran after pink butterflies which led the way 
They took him to her 
They glide above them 
then to the promising celestial sky 
they flew away baby blue 
infinite their love. 

As if He knew her in another lifetime sweetly
His eyes where glued. Into her own 
He knew he loved her and had to hold her 
Never to leave him all by himself 
regally standing mustang white

His eyes were fixed into hers... 
To her he went with joyful tears 
His lips brushed smoothly her every fears 
As then he whispered behind her ears 
You are a unicorn and I'm a man 
but with no other my.heart will share 
I ll make you mine if you say yes 
The first winged unicorn as a princess 
Then he kissed her upon her neck 
and a strong wind just pushed him back 
From a white horse. ,fair lady She 
had now won over her destiny 
The prince's lips removed the curse 
Now she is his ,as he is hers 

Overflowing his heart 
in sweeping golden joy 
forever on deep sands 
living always together 
in everlasting happiness

The Love Letter

My dear, 

   I shall meet thee in the summer of thy heart,

   where we once walked head to each 

   elegant upon the world....

And had not a care but for little winds of love

   winking there in the dreams of trees,

   laying upon me to so delicately,

   tickle with your autumn hair,

   always so soap-scented you

Touch me where I had not known

   the ease of such wonder in your eyes,

   splendor only for a great king ----

   but I a hopeless romantic muse,

   with little empty pockets blessed

   with thy precious petal,

   am richer than any lord!

I shall wait for thee in our golden glade,

   the heart which flows the waterfall....
   by the dawn of your sweet embrace,

   in the summer of thy heart,

   I shall wait....

   (Love, K)

Sleepless in sweatpants and t-shirt
You peaceful beside me
in your cupped hand a poem
A tribute to a single ripe persimmon

No such fruit remembered
from the spirals of our past
to be relegated now
to the realm of poetry

You fed me plump strawberries
        not persimmons
when we never wore
sweatpants in bed

Now I recall the passion
of our early poems
when our bodies loved one another
On our lips the sticky juice

I hear exotic sensual tones in your voice
Aged bodies     wrinkles left in the dark
scattered amid seeds and lost bites of persimmon
Plucking from time's grasp     a nourishing repast

A sonnet for a piece of fruit     
One significant poem melding yesterday    
tomorrow    into any and every day
Mellow orange faded from the red of the past
The first flush of strawberry passion still in our veins

You dreamed of feeding me a persimmon
while I lay sleepless at midnight

Starstruck in your deep Beauty

In your beauty, striking jewels within your light 
If I where to go into another world 
Searching behind each and every fold 
Wrapped up inside my mind 
There is a never ending vision, of thought 
Over half of it one forgets 
in a short space me not 

Flowering time one stands out striking 
It draws from the gentle wishing well 
inside the rainbow colors her 
all shades of a promise 
sprinkling softly in her mist 

The heart began singing music to me 
as the soul saw your guiding light 
I would never break your heart love 
one silent promise, made into oneself 
at that very moment in time 

I felt it 
so very special 
remembering the sweet pretty birds in song 
Magic capturing that very moment 
our souls inside out sharing 
When the heart fell at your feet 
it was truly amazing 

You're my dove wings 
sweetly touching 
Flying this heart deeply in love 
with your peace the drunken spirit is floating 
intoxicated in your space 
falling softy emotions swoon 
Savoring feelings explode outside reality 
your amazing beautiful in my eyes 
dazzling the mirrors of dream

It Is The Scent Of Your Soul

In my arms secure I delicately brush back your hair, Touch your skin almost imperceptibly   Your eyes vanish into mine. I feel miraculously lost in your splendor... but... it is the scent of your soul... In my arms guarded you graze my lips with slender fingers Kiss my body, soothingly knead my shoulders, you inhale my gaze, steal me, lead me to your dominion but... it is the scent of your soul... Fusion of companions luscious in the air Voices that harmonize in the sounds of pleasure Willingly unconscious in a flurry of delight On an adult merry-go-round of fervent assimilation  but... it is the scent of your soul... your beauty unmatched violet colored eyes, sun embraced hair, an unblemished china white complexion, lips that dance in sync with spring, but... it is the scent of your soul... your primal allure unparalleled that bedroom draw that you possess  your fragrant heat that screams a man's desire those womanly parts, a body perfect entices... but... but, still there is no measure. The strength of your kindness, your giving nature, your nurse like instincts, the pure drive of your convictions. I would sacrifice all else nothing matters more... it is the scent of your soul that owns me.

Wild pure and free love

I am just a country boy at heart
mustang free wild at spirit
Awakening to the bliss birds singing love piercing into a soul
Treasure gem in the promised land
dewdrops are falling rubbing them into my fingers 
wind breathing her voice whispers silver 
I hold so much love deep inside for you
stroking gently as it touches softly 
your one amazing woman to me
sweetly inside the land of milk and honey
touching finger caress in the morning sun 
Golden dreams in her I smile rising queen of the east
To she who bows me humble 
so full of grace inside treasure deeply smiling 
Then as I look across the mountains 
captured in deep thoughts within beauty wow
White clouds in the sky racing to dreamland
darling hop on the magic carpet 
whisked away in a breathless heartbeat
I fall away into a distant dream starstruck paradise Shangri-la
garden of eden your my seventh heaven love

Darling with you I can see a great vision
together in the great golden cased thoughts

Banter in the bedroom

The cares of the world waft away like
the vague images of a forgotten dream  
when he climbs into bed beside me.  

And my comfort is found in the warmth 
of a slight up-curved smile relaxing across 
an unshaven face tickling me with a
hundred kisses as I squeal to his delight.  

A calloused hand urges the small of
my back gently forward as I fuss in 
mock protest of his boyish game.  

His eyes gleam indulgently making my 
heart swell with such regard I 
choke back joyful tears and throw 
my arms possessively around him.  

With a knowing sigh he draws me in, 
cradling me in his capable arms 
sworn to provide and protect.    

Then he buries his face in my copper-red 
hair breathing its henna scent, and 
holding me tight, he whispers my name,
swearing love that will never relent.

Winter Proposal

With my soul at peace and my thoughts at rest,
standing in this winter wilderness,
I whisper words of heartfelt bliss.

Come with me and walk this path.
Together we tread against the freeze,
and find the warmth of tender grasp.

My devoted being shall forever be,
a place of strength against chilled winds,
a brilliant light only you have seen.

Our lives have met in this quiet space.
Let sky meet land and rivers merge.
Forever, harmony I long to taste.

We have summoned light from darkest days.
Heat returns to melt still ice.
Each day length now brings stronger rays.

The deepest snows cannot hide the facts.
Beneath these layers life holds fast.
Newfound joys spring from bleakest past.

Let's rebuild life from broken dreams,
Where life restarts with each new spring,
the snows will melt to feed fresh streams.

Like this land, my passion runs free.
Walls have come down with earnest words.
My unblinded eyes now see.

I ask for your hand without ounce of gold,
or shiny stones dug from filthy earth.
My eternal love cannot be bought or sold.

Under peaks reborn of volcanic scars,
In night's serene and  starkest silence,
I pledge love to outlast the multitude of stars.

Solitude I turn from on this ride.
Today and tomorrow let's walk in stride.
Promise to be my utopian bride.

Stay with me, hold my hands so tight.
Stay with me, I need you here by my side.
Stay with me, until the clouds get dark.
Stay with me, I'll take you somewhere we can hide.

Stay with me, you are the only one I want.
Your breath,your smell that make me high.
Stay with me, I want this room to burn on fire.
I'll let you win this broken heart if you'll stay with me ,tonight.

Stay with me, I need you here by my side.
Stay with me then hold my hands,'til clouds get dark.
Stay with me, there's somewhere else that we can hide.
Stay with me, I'm begging for a one night stand.

This life isn't be this way before,
When I met you, I broke the rules.
I became free and saw the light.
So please stay with me ,tonight!

Stay with me, the time is short.
You'll be gone soon in open door.
Stay with me until my eyes were closed.
So I can save the memories when you stay with me, tonight.

Tea For Two

I love to watch the tilt of your tender-tipped fingers
cupping the teacup's rounded heat,
the way you would gently cup my breasts,

your hands coiled lovingly around their warmth.
The roil of boiling water, the fluid swirl
of aromatic amber flowing over delicate flowers

as spiralling steam scents the room sensual,
rose-redolent and perfumed with jasmine flowers.
Lustrous light turns the day liquid: our private gilded hour.

Lemon sunlight slivers sharpen our eyes to each other.
Your fingers move with practised, deft fluidity,
absently caressing the chintzy china;

the air heavy with heady scents of the orient,
a tingling-brisk kiss of bergamot upon your lips.
I watch you lingering, filtering the fragrant leaves,

your fingers frisking the fragile porcelain,
florid and swelling with heat;
your lips dipping to sip sugared gold.

Once More

As the evening crept in
whisper of pines unfolded slowly another story,
every single instant seemed one decade;
unknown stars above blinking endlessly,
hand in hand ,our hearts unbridled themselves
and then escaped somewhere into darkness,
old moon unveiled the amazing mountains
every tree inundated by oozing silver;
under this autumn sky
enchanted by immense beauty
our speechless,unbounded moments
as four eyes met in love once more;
unabated passion about to explode moment
into fragments of pleasure
unlimited,boundless and never ending;
we inhaled fragrance of love
unfurling like a rose every second,
I thought of the universe for a moment
even though it seemed oblivion to us.

August wind, glass moon,serendipity... two chairs gazing at each other in tender flow. Hundred miles away, clouds gather to fondle the opening and closing of after- midnight refrains, both trespassing a continental divide to awaken upon scrolls of ramblings united by the sorcery of mystic spaces between humid lenses. On such lit evenings, I will surrender to the maleness of a trembling heart ; your cheeks swollen like yeast…a shaven head, the blue of your shirt buried in my cellar unbuttoning the heaving pauses between the nearness of our skin… Chairs grind in wanton anticipation of palms touching my hair… you whisper, “ I adore you beyond words.”... and I; I falter while a glint climbs into the almond of my Oreo eyes… The scent of hours lingers as we wrap our fingers into morn, owning a body language in play of charades… Your mouth hushed, searching the curves of my spine glazed by soft bites of an August wind brushing our lips…until the slide screen fades off, and we are dissolved into a paradise inhabiting unborn stars. In raw enchantment, our warmed glances wait for a next time, as if a tarot of angels had known about serendipity.

Would you marry me smiling

Your words has made love to me under a spell
I feel just so alive inside your love sweetheart
flying echoes within beautiful songbirds singing in the valley 
Magic  whispers you're a dream stirring silver waves silently 
enchanting warmly upon a November breeze
Oh baby over and over honey in the mind golden turns 
crystal drops splashes of happiness
Sweetest child of eternal beauty shining brightly 
on one treasure sparkling jeweled gem everlasting memory complete
Looking across the mountains searching destiny I call your name 
haunting wolf howls alighting our souls unite as one body 
Our hearts marry together sparking ignites purity
Then looking out towards the ocean hills crumbling
they begin unfolding out this vision towards the sea
I fall crashing into your space thousands of miles away
in this nutshell smiling a Renoir dream classic
your an attractive intelligent  lady kiss me quick
Who is now holding high position of royalty inside four chambers
A picture hangs sweet kissing a diamond among'st maidens
desiring  hot one rose blushing red each petal crowning
emotions of passion pure in white forever burning flames
blue inside touching you softly in a feathered touch
 In gentle soft warm flickers each a beat
gently in the wildest dreams softly sings our song
Take my heart and join it with your's darling
walk with me upon golden sands 
dancing with joy finding such a queen
I sweetly surrender to you this soul
my pact true our lovers path 
forever and always holding hands 
our destiny divine and beautiful sings

this is something I spent quite some time alone writing just finished it today

The Write of You

Inspired by the write of you
creamed through a paper sieve to cup
with both hands the leavings that you trail
 the write of you

like the chewed edge of hand pressed paper
like the apostrophe of lash on the cheeky page
I ogle the syncopated semen-antic drop of
 the write of you

how often does the wonder of you flash
across the film of my eyes unable reach
for I am so enchanted with the coffee-au-lait
 write of you

Love At James Bond Beach

Making Love In Jamaica At The Iconic James Bond Beach It is a sun splashed day;  the air is silent with the sound of waves  the ocean is moving to the rhythm of crying gulls.  The fine white sand underneath our feet is warm. The crashing waters from a small wind sculpted waterfall swims  into the arms of its mother sea. It is a private beach at a spot in the world  where the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meld. It is a wanting sensation of hot then cold, that teases the senses. The beach is deserted it is only me and the love of my life.  The golden rays of light from the bright morning star  lives in the flow of her platinum blond hair.  In her eyes I can see the bright clear ocean,  with a piercing love glare that beckons me.  Her red lips, her light drenched skin glows  with the beauty of this perfect Jamaican day. Without a thought I grab the back of her head,  jerking my lover's whole body towards me  locking her in the strength of my grasp  inviting her to quench my desire. I bite her lips before engaging in a deep passionate kiss  remove her barely there bikini from her statuesque figure. She embraces me as I lift her in my arms  naked for all the Gods to observe.  I set her down under the refreshing flow of the rushing waterfall.  She attempts to pull at me, but I deny her, hold back both her arms and use my mouth  to suckle her, all the time absorbing the beating waters  that kneads my flesh like so much dough. Suddenly I set her free.  She pounces  like a lioness  a lioness in heat  famished  for the taste of flesh. The world dissappears  I find myself willingly trapped in a void of marvel. Nature's voice conducts  an orchestra of emotions. We writhe in the ecstasy of touch as a series of divine strokes finger paints portraits of rapture.  We dance slow to the precise notes  of a symphony of love into the arms of serenity. In one fluid movement our bodies become one. There is no end to the flavors we consume. Cooling waters flame our sins.  We explode like a building imploding gracefully to the roar of a white sound. Finally we pass out  naked, locked in each others arms.  When we awaken we find ourselves lying on  the fine white sand beach. Tattooed  in the telling shades  of a Jamaican suntan. 02~11~2014 Sponsor: Justin Bordner Contest Name: Make Love To Me In That Ancient Place

Burning Passion

Touching fingers off 
deep fire melting tips 
sweetly burning brushes 
inside warmly walls 
Within four chambers 
echoes whispering silently 
softly desires warm when skipping a beat 

Oh you talk the words 
of the sweetest golden honey 
intoxicating mead 
The drunken spirit dancing 
swoons just in thoughts alone 
In what you said darling 
I blame you smiling 
you're a regal beauty 

Whom I will kiss 
hovering gently over your fingertips 
softly holding one's vision 
A flame left under the silver moon 
dancing with you're shadow of my soul 
one firefly beaming beautiful 

In the night sky a light from you 
shines in each passing new moon 
takes a step closer 
just to know all the right words to say darling 
I'll kiss you till you're calm and then you would be mine.. 
or maybe i'll wait for the star 
to shine upon that beautiful day

warm solar love

a soul orbits 
looking into space
searching beyond
staring at 
an orange full
cold  moon
rising peacefully
into the sea of tranquility
floating air labored
softly gasping for breath
exploding stars
lights up
the sky

wrath of the sun's light
bombards this earth
explosive  fireworks 
pulsing inside  
emotions erupt
bursting solar colours
feelings flare beautifully
flashing the beginning 
of a strong orbiting cycle

magnetic crochet
strongly pulls
gently sewing together
embraces warm rays 
kisses sweetly
with her soft fingers
weaving love deeply
blissfully into 
one's heart

Only you babe

Tasting delights softly captured
in a keyhole of thoughts 
warmly smiling
radiates within one porthole 
Outside the mind
opening this heart sweetly yawning 
twilight dawning .

Clouds shades red blushing desire
fading to amber 
going further out from the sun
turning shades 
from gun barrel grey to black 
setting our scene.

kissing outside in 
thinking of your beauty love 
Licking deeply tongues on fire 
warm fluttering rays
hotly kissing each beat
burning passion erupting inside desires.

Forever Romance

they say that the stars that hang out with the moon at night are for lovers when you walked with me held my hand my heart pittered and pattered to the sound of puddles hugging the falling cloud drops i was sure you could hear it i was shy and you must of known because with your hand you calmed my doubt they say that the rain that hangs out with the sun on a bright day is for lovers i was oblivious to the rainfall warm and dry and wrapped in your reflection your reflection that decorated the small pools of rain that filled the holes along our path that heated me beyond my boiling point i was sure you could feel it i was scared and you must of known because with your hand you cooled my fear they say that the fireflies that hang out with the flowers at night are for lovers i knew i would always be with you like a snowflake frozen on my shoelace on a summer day when we sat the following day we sat on the soft kelly green clover on the highest of hills with the line at the end of the sky like the horizon forever joined forever romance

One Autumn Night

one late night in the grip of a super moon, captivated by the elegance of  
the season in an even slumber with bulbs sleeping on the brink of winter. 
we surrender our senses to the alluring view and feel of this exclusive new.
autumn in its evening gown, its hibernating blooms, its brittle bark and rusted grass
in repose with sleeveless branches against a midnight sky and in a hovering haze. 
wrapped in a multi colored coat of changing leaves and scattered acorns to gather
we walk on air enticed by the flow of a cooling breeze in the warmth of what is we.

Orient Express: Collaboration Poem By JaDazzle Jan Allison and Darren Watson

We hear the engine whistle 
The hissing of the steam 
The hairs on our necks begin to bristle 
As we meet the arrival of a dream 
We didn't think we had a chance of winning 
Entering just for fun I guess 
but thanks to simple poem we are grinning 
As we board the Orient express.
London to Paris, what a dream come true
I never dreamed the sparks would fly between us two
The fireman stokes the boiler; and releases a jet of steam
The guard collects our tickets and we begin our dream
Days and nights together on this magnificent train
Travel through beautiful places, seeing new terrain
Enthralled at the elegance and beauty of the carriage
Will our trip together end up with our marriage
Looking so handsome in your new dinner jacket
Glad you won this holiday; it must have cost a packet
The ambiance of the surroundings is utter bliss
We seal our relationship with a tender kiss
Holding hands so gently we share a vintage wine
Sitting in the Pullman coach you rest your head on mine
Velvet blue sky and shining stars start to cast their spell 
The romantic seine has such stories to tell.

In Paris we visit the galleries of fine art
Holding your hand I realise you have captured my heart
We pass through the Arc De Triomphe and climb the Eiffel Tower 
Now I surrender to your feminine power
Retire with me to the Napoleon suite 
Sharing in the splendour of this romantic treat
Promise to be my Mam'selle Josephine 
Or expose my heart to Madame Guillotine  

You look so beautiful and smell divine 
I kiss your lips, They taste of fine wine
We are lost in the flames of passions fire 
As we quench the thirst of true loves desire
Our bodies rise and fall as we entwine
Oh I’m so glad that you are mine
All those feelings denied and for so long suppressed 
Come to the fore aboard the Orient express.

Passion abates we are wrapped in each others arms
Darren wants more so I succumb to his great charms
Our fire ignites with desire and great passion
Hour upon hour – this man I can’t ration
Finally we reach the end of the line
Our love making session has been so divine
Arm in arm we head out of the carriage door
So hopelessly in love – who could ask for more

Romantic Ramblings about the Ultimate Man

You’re the finest man I have ever seen
You are handsome and strong
Full bodied
Beautiful to the eyes
Alluring to the hands
Your lips
Send messages
“Come and taste
And never thirst again”
Your eyes
Changing hues
Like the sea
The sky
In between
Iris pools where I love to swim
Liquid pleasures draw me
The depth….unfathomable
I dive deep
Deeper still
Till I am breathless
Needing to resurface

Your mind
A garden
Laden with fruit
For my hungry soul
I devour your wisdom
It is sweet to my mouth
Honey clings to each word
and sweetens my inner soul
I can listen spellbound
As you expound
The mysteries
Of existence and time
The intricacies of the world above
And the world below
And the world within
Oh…the world within
The best of them all

How you enter it with confidence
My little world
You stride
Confident and bold
I worship the ground you walk on
I worship you...body and soul
I stop breathing
With your proximity
Afraid that my breath
Will betray me
forming itself
Into a perfumed message from my heart
confessing my idolatry
So I keep silent
I hold my breath
I look away
Overwhelmed by your beauty

You are the ultimate MAN
The incarnation of
Every woman’s fantasy
Your body a haven
Your arms the walls of safety
You protect
A bastion of strength
A fortress of comfort
A perpetual knight 
To my damsel in distress
You hear my unspoken cries
And come galloping
You whisk me away
To your castled heart
Where you allay
Every fear
With that smile
the drawbridge to your soul
The royal seal
You’ve sealed me with
“All is well
I am here
I am...HERE.
Lay in my arms
Put your head on my chest”

Oh...that slow easy smile
That rivals the sun
For it cannot compete
With the heat
Your smile births in me
The sun scorches from outside in
You scorch from inside out
I melt
With that sweet smile
Oh what of your touch?
A brush of your hand
And I grow faint
And your smile broadens
Sending flares
For you know
I’m prepared 
For your entry to my inner sanctum

You are the ultimate in creation
Desire’s ultimate desire fulfilled
Passion’s passionate plea
For perfection...
You are
And here is the mystery
You are here with me
In me
In my body soul and mind
You reside
You reign...supreme
Never to be dethroned
But to be adored
And my muted celebration of praise
Is heard only by the stars
But you will see its sparkle 
Here in my eyes
When our two worlds
Flaming into paradise

You're my lady, made for me

You're my lady, made for me!


I swear to you there could never ever be!

In this whole world, as far as I could see!

Someone else who could be my soul-mate!

Except you, most precious gift of my fate!

Before we even met, I had known you forever!

Since times began, we had been apart never!

From nothing, you changed me to everything!

My queen of hearts, just with you I am a king!

You are my world, you're the love of my life!

You are my sweetheart, O my prettiest wife!

Let me yet once more get down on my knee!

To say you are my lady, who is made for me!

Melting Into You

Come my darling with the nightsky
in your hair
And the rose buds on your lips
With eyes of infinite grace that
drowns my sorrows
As if eternity had lost my soul in its 
timeless beauty.

In a web of passion I'm entangled
by your love
By your silent breathing through
the helpless night
As if the moonlit sea was drifting
its sweet waves back to me.

Like the dew I melted into your
soft kiss
It was a sweet death I'd die
a thousand times
Never to be found again
For in your soul I breathe!

The Maiden of My Love


Gliding joyfully through pleasures dens place; adorned afresh in her lovely bareness

Natures sweet child; the lady of my dreams this woman that, I adore; such purity 

Lying afore the fireshearth parting, her long silkened legs; she always knows...

Softly with a smile and her breast, rising amid this familiar desire; her beauty ~

Falling in love

Falling in love; and in such a freezing winter?

That fire ignites anytime! Just with a splinter!

Love never withers; it blooms in all seasons!

It brings us spring when our lives it brightens!

The warm flames of love don't scorch anyone!

They only melt two hearts to make it just one!

Love is so blind; it doesn't see any reasons!

The naive and the sage, both alike it stuns!

Cupid's arrow strikes even the wisest wise!

It pierces the heart, but enters thru the eyes!

Sage and philosopher, scholar and the saint!

Struggle to define love, in words quite quaint!

Poets and the writer can only tell how it feels!

When just in a glance, you fall head over heals!

Your soulmate carries your name in invisible ink!

Love strikes at the first sight, before you blink!


The best place for a poem to live is in the heartbeats of those who love it!

Blessed are the poets whose verses are read, not on papers they just sit!

Last Night When you Were in Deep Sleep

Last night when you were in deep sleep I scribbled a poem on your bare back, a page so soft--with love bites and moles I used them to cut the t's and dot the i's; my finger tips' softly turn created ripples in a placid lake where you prepared to take a dip in your dream, my words followed you in that unknown land secretly to know your destination. I remembered to forget every scribbled word as it was my gift to the sleepless night, she was picking up each word one by one and kept them in her lap of silence. For the first time,you never knew how a poem was born and lost in the silence of night. © kash poet (kashinath karmakar) =====================================

New Stars Are Formed

Strange colored skies climb northernly this night
Calling our future with wild deamons eyes
Abscure as the creatures who answer the call
Wild are the answers of the reasons and the faults
Certain as the well swept winds
Alluring in it's grasp fought negatively through single wins
I pray twords the skies and it curdles and swims
Thoughts twords the sun and it scorches my rims
Carry me far enough I can be within your sights
Stash us away and the sun will be bright
Motors may break but oceans will be light
I will stay on the coast and wait 
The award I will do is make the evening a minute late
Parched is the gulf as the single minute breaks
Great is the second docks a seperate mans gate

The Earths crust slowly begins to crumble
It quivers, then quakes, it slowly opens, the rivers break
A star is born somewhere, a beautiful new star
Great is the struggle, born from the heavens a small light it makes

The new star pulls, it turns, then it feeds and it's fuel it burns
Gently it orbits following all things it understands
The new star bends it dances it stands
Tancing outwardly as creations comprehend

A continient wavers as the new star binds its brand
It feeds off of our oceans as our tides wash in
It goes just as softly forward and back
As the rays of its placement barrow up to the sun
We watch very carefully because it's damages are already done

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Under those wild blue skies.
Her favorite fruit was chocolate 
covered cherries.

As the skies fell somewhere in time.
She drifted down from the clouds. 
To be dropped into his arms alone. 

He always loved the way the juice  
dripped off her plump red lips .
As he caught the drips on his tongue. 

Capturing some unknown secrets.
As he licked her juicy red lips .
She felt the thrust of his lust in her.

He so loved that childlike wonder in her.
As he looked into her dreamy eyes.
The stars made love to the universe.

As the skies of blue drift over time.
The night stars formed a mystery.
They were full of love, beauty, and lies.

You're a maiden so hot burning thoughts 
whom melts ice inside deep waves salted 
unfolding ocean swells kissing your feet 
For once spoke those hot lips the truth shining 

Sunshine pleasing warm beholding to

Love is like pure sparkling magic gem 
unpredictable true and marvelous 

Magic silk covers batting eyelids 
enchanting soft lovingly flowers 
beautiful petals held within the shell 
Let the rose live forever and the sun 
shines always endless times glistening gold

How Far Will You Fly

How far will you fly?
Cross continent? Moonward?
Across the room?
When will you depart?
Through which gate?
Let me fly with you.
You won't even notice me,
On the wing,
Clinging for life (and love).
Why do you flee me,
choosing a destination
from which it will be
to book a return?

Wet sex

double climax
never felt more alive. ,

A Dream

A Dream
I patiently waited for you all the day long, my beloved. Even the tired, orange, afternoon sun long ago drifted off to sleep. Nighttime arrived in a hurry shoving away the short-lived evening, With rhinestone stars dotting a shimmering, dark, velvet sky, And a pale, silver moon shyly venturing on the horizon.
After the lamps were all lit, I struggled to stay awake, But my heavy eyelids drooped as I was weary from the long day. So forgive me, my lord, as I unwittingly succumbed To the potent spell of the Sandman’s magical dust; And sly Morpheus sneakily captured me in his soothing embrace.
Come share with me this dream of tranquil enchantment, In a watercolor field of delicately perfumed lavender and clover. And I in peaceful repose await your arrival, my lord, To gently awaken me with tender kisses, sweet as nectar. I look for you, my dearest love, in a dream!

One More Look

One final look, one final glance such deep brown eyes, I'm in your trance. Those full blush lips, revealing that perfect smile. I so need sleep, but I think I'll dream awhile. That radiant skin, vibrant, glowing and flush. An angel at my side, so much more than a crush As I close my weary eyes, I know when I awake, you'll be right there, but first one more look I'll take

You're Always Special Love

In your arms I will find peace
Yes....and bliss too my love
You're casting magic falling under you 
a spell shining in beauty

No magic....sweetheart...just love......
you just make me feel it.
As you dazzle my insides hot
I would have you so close 
to burn up next to you ...
more and more each day!
Soul melting deeply warm 
blushing flutters kiss deeply
Oh I love you smiling ....
makes me feel special
so so special

If I could just bottle that smile 
each time I put my lips to the neck 
drunken in your sweet beauty 
Oh you make me so....
no words to say sweetheart

Now baby I just gave you 
It all upon a silver platter 
Oh your love is like the waves 
that come lapping on the seashore ....
I love the feeling 

Beloved reaching the stars 
I kneel a lamb
to the light of my life
As you paint in thoughts cherished each word
I just don't you came to make me change
I just don't you came to make me change

Never stepping back

Treasure Shining

A silver creeping mist 
falling one cloud 
capping the mountain

Like a great waterfall 
in a faraway distance 
I began dreaming gold

Inside the vision silver fingers 
pointing out spears slowly 
crumbling forward 

Embracing one pure gift
relic treasure memory of love
Warm sweet glowing jewel in deep beauty
Happiness inside shining diamond  
joy beaming your sunshine baby a star 
lighting one gem brightly dazzles a pearl

I drew with a 6/stepping up waves to 9 syllable count then we reach cloud 9/9/9 10 is the perfect ending 10 out of 10 a mad way I am trying to draw a jewel

Morning has spoken

Most beautiful honey 
deep inside the pot 
sweetly stirring thoughts
feelings velvet satin fluttering soft
touching sweetly emotions smile

Breathing in the fresh morning air 
misty capped mountains speak
echoing winds carries 
deep inside a faraway treasure
brushing across each warm skipping beat
falling dew upon the ground
thinking of you as an amazing dream 

Spirit of your beauty flies with me
dancing warm waves upon this soul 
within the loving you 
Paradise on distant sands
golden in a faraway land
across many distant seas

I lay my heart
upon the sands 
just for you my love 
Good morning most beautiful 
is when you smile

True Blue Moon

These thoughts are crystal clear in feelings
towards a beautiful gem 
dazzling aurora of lighting color
falling into loves sweet 
everlasting touching a dream
The fondest memories come flooding back
walking along the golden sands 
with my dog buster 
him dancing around 
floating lovingly on natures breeze
Tears begin rolling down the face
looking skyward 
a full moon face in her pearly white attire
Winds blowing quite strongly across the ocean
touching inner humming whistles
Silver reflections of her face shine 
dancing in each and every single ripple
Light of truth is a burning torch
forever warm and loving 
forgiving always to the end
is this real I ask myself over and over
Watching you sleep smiling deep inwardly beautiful
putting my nose to your hair loving how it smells
for me baby the sweetest scent of you
Knowing smiles upon your angel face
this dream is it real pinching myself
Sleeping beauty I thought in that moment
A fairy tale breathing ever so slowly lowers and rises
deep gentle soft fluttering warm breaths
as i watch you sleeping 
One prize for a king who is lucky in love 

one I spent a while writing, finished it on a walk last night looking at a full moon

You Are So Beautiful

Soft notes of a clarinet playing
‘You are so beautiful’, stirs memories
of holding hands and making plans
in the dimly lit atmosphere, so close, 
the scent of your after shave 
left me breathless for a moment.

My long locks softly wrapped themselves
around the scarlet lei you bestowed around
my neck with a tender kiss to each cheek.
Lighting and music melded into magic.

When you cupped my face
in your masculine hands I could feel 
the current flowing between us in
unknown wattage that swept through my body
like bolts of lightning as my entire being
tingled in the nearness of your aura.

They say ‘warm hands, cold heart’, but
I found this to be intrinsically untrue.
I will never forget the passion exuding from 
your warm heart, with those warm hands!
Our first kiss spoke to me assuredly as
the material world vanished and 
we were alone, alone in the darkness, 
alone in our world.

Tick Tock Tick Tock

                      Tick Tock Tick Tock 

Tick, tock, tick, tock, goes the sound of my clock
I am waiting, waiting, waiting.  Waiting for time to expend
Never have I known time to go so slowly

Exhilarated!  The subject of my tormented dreams will appear
Miles separate, but wires, contaminated with the sweet whispers of our lips
Fingers touch keys and memories of silk ignite the flame of passion 

O clock on the wall!  Why extend my eagerness to be fulfilled
Time!  Why is it you seem to stand still, but still 
 I am waiting, waiting, waiting 

My love, please fulfill?

love you more

You came to me a broken mess
You still aren’t fixed the way I was hoping yet
But girl don’t hide your scars and flaws
Because they’re making me love you more 

It’s always been more than getting you into bed
Damn I can’t believe some of the things I’ve said
All these romantic, soft and cheesy things
But I want you to know and love isn’t an easy thing

Strip you down so to keep you warm I have to hold you tighter than ever
Hear the rain tapping on the window I hope it gets louder and wetter
Girl I’ve never been happier
Softly kissing on your neck like a romantic Dracula

Staying up late
Talking about random stuff just happy being with each other
I know how you like to be touched babe
So I sneak under the covers

Touch you in ways you’ve never been touched before
Baby you have no reason to be insecure
You’re the most beautiful girl in the world
But your flaws are making me love you more

I love waking up with you wearing my shirt
Taking care of each other sharing the hurt
You heal me and I heal you
Girl if I can find a way to love you more I will do

I remember

Someone once saying to me
I always wished to meet some like you
To you one writes poetry from the heart and soul
opening up from my very being 
Looking into the sky spirit of a kestrel dancing
on warm waves of air brushing deep
Just sharing writing sitting on the riverbank 
alone with my old pal buster my dog
listening to the mountain stream rumbling past
I see with you love a great vision 
love inside deep you told me
tears falling joy I had a beautiful soul
or is that not what you want 
confused I am our friendship
Then you said I had a heart to match and once said 
It just totally blew me away into heaven
feels  I am still not good enough 
I give you all inside off me
Love you are so very special 
to sail away in heartbeats off thoughts 
amazing each moment spent thinking about you
Into the clouds of silver lining treasure dream
opening in front off you
Holding most precious jewels first glance
crowning you this ocean's queen
Holy grail such a gem lights up smiles
beaming warm vision painting beauty
The sparkle in those beautiful mirrors 
dazzling stars just shone a whole new world to me 
Their is such a thing as love I feel it complete
at the very first sight instantly
I found it with you

beauty in the eye
that of the beholder

sweetest darling
played using
the silken cords
on a spiders web

weaving together
feelings touching tender
soft and so
very beautiful
fall weak
at the knees

emotions churning
unbelievable softness
like those of a child
in tenderness

how this world
from so many colours
drawing from your eyes
looks and shines
amazing beauty
full of adventure

love it shines
in the light
of a thousand candles
flickering dancing
sweet gentle breeze
in the soul 

softly landing
floating spirits
loves beauty

Star Gazer

When she smiled at him ----

   the world could wait,

   with its myriad of contradictions

   and infinite postures to feigned joy;

   there could be no deceit in her light....

That gorgeous assurance that he was as alive

   as the vast heartbeat of the cosmos;

   what a whetted pulse to quicken and burst

   upon the shoulders of stars,

   and saddle comets to flame....

   ride the rays of the sun....

As a child again under the spell of ice cream,

   shiny-toy and heroic dream;

   the world could wait,

   (when she smiled at him)

Baking Chocolate

For shame I write again
And indulge your memory 
Doting on you baselessly,
As though you’re a man
For shame, I have no remedy

Because as a child, I could never know
And as I am, you couldn't trust my word
That I know you and I know hardship
Because while there was always milk for me
You are have always been
 baking chocolate

And though I didn't know how unpleasant it would be
I faithfully escorted that dry dust to my mouth
Because you already owned me, 
and my passion was arcane
I forfeited to you
To become fortitude, your stronghold
I gladly wed the night; I gladly wed your savagery
Soliloquies decorating the shrine in my heart
For you, my one good thing 

I have no capacity to abandon
And I don’t know how to love conservatively 
And as easy as spitting you out could be
I let you fester, 
I let you make a home in me 

But even now, I can still taste you in my mouth, 
Where years should’ve made you disappear
 And you’re nauseating
You’re the bitter product of bitter chocolate
I’m older now
 and my youth won’t erase you
Nor passing moments, nor justified rage
 And my heart is empty plastic
In my own hands
And  you marauded me

I hate you more than there are words for
My resilience has long melted away
Yet you always have a hand on me
And I can’t make you leave

Eternal sunshine’s burning me
My lips remember, my lips grieve

For shame,  I can’t forget you…

Eden Calling

A ferocious storm battering outside  
heavy winds howling a wolf
angry breaths pelting rain bullets hurl
whistling apple of these eyes
dreaming inside the howling moans
feeling your caress deeply touching  
away our souls in another world kissing
mist falling down weeping inside
dreaming always with you by my side 
A deep sigh of pain yearning loves voice
distant tears weeping from the heart and soul
floating with light into another world
blinded by everything one sees
queen off the rainbows mist 
through lashes bouquet colors
sensing many emotions deeply felt
crying happy crying sad crying glad 
dreaming always with you by my side

In the end

Oh darling I will always bow down kissing your beautiful cheek
do place your sweet dainty head to my heart it speaks
singing in song listen to the music echoing deeply
Fluttering dances honey, do you feel it pulsate
as in the deep pumping blood a tune sings
Filled red with desires beast gasping upon breaths
peeling back the skin it flows warm to the soul
Around the body goes your arms sweetly
then your mouth and lips taste mines honey
Fills inside warm golden whole love
burning turf upon the fire 
Lighting up the flames inside passion licks 
hotly power held embracing such amazing beauty
Tightly grasping your eagle claws 
holding you such pure divine thoughts
Tightly we burn our energies together
softly whispers forever a treasure 
now that we spark from across waters
Our distant souls in the flames burn for each other
Uniting flickering lashes dance always 
flirting so very beautiful love 
Are you baby casting magic spells ore me 
because its working 
The heart just keeps beating faster for you honey

Forever loving you

Sounds of a great mountain roar
trembling echoes 
a shaking voice,
flooding down the face
a river of tears 
inside each drop, 
treasured sparkling crystals
pearl jewels weep.

Brings new life 
as joy sweetly blushing 
desires your beauty ,
Crowned queen of the flies bouquet colors,
a butterfly dances 
floats upon a sun lighting rays,
touching inside with warm wings 
sweeping an angel.

Sweet gently skipping desire 
hot pulse beats star lighting passion ,
glows behind the jewels,
baby you shine beautifully bright 
warm when the thunder roars ,
beast of reality natures lion.

Loves arrow strikes 
deeply blushing red
under a pink moon ,
sweetly embracing together 
kissing forever spirit of the night
always uniting under your love,
when our dream becomes true
into eternity hand in hand 
one masterpiece 
walking to paradise 
adoring the picture within you.

Usher me by, the power of the tidal wave, for beneath
You’ve crushed my heart and soul, washed away is resistance.
I’m a vanquished current, swept within your riptide.
A hurricane survivor dashed against your coral reef,
Rough, ridged left bleeding into the flowing surface channel.
A liquid fluid stream eloping drowning, swallowed whole by
The raw elemental essence that is your sweet loving.
Usher me by, the winds breeze that stirs the pines in the
Mountains highest, oh how tenderly does it whisper mine name,
Echoing against the Alps divides, cascading down drafts collide
As a rock land slide, into your embracing earthquake.
Tumbling, boulders clashing, slashing our sharpened edges,
Bumping, destroying the valleys smooth textures beneath
Love’s lush evergreen sheets of beauty.
Usher me by, the banishment's of the star creation above,
Wipe the heavens clean, undo every collision before the
Existence of mankind let us write our own timelines legacy,
For life began, when you moved my inner soul by speaking
My name in poetic verse.
Usher me by, whatever thy spirit commends me,
For I am yours eternally, abandonment's servant a slave
Giving myself willingly unto bondagement’s indentured
Usher me by, passion’s flame for I burn as kindling fire,
A living spiritual spark, given fuel by my lover’s desire,
Vanquished underneath his torrents storm, and merging
As a whirlwinds flash of lightening striking against the vows
Of the everlasting vaults of heaven themselves, for our love is

Heart fuel

Opening up 
with a moon smiling tonight
sparkling stars mingling with white clouds 
Searching for the soul's dream
stands a wonder before thee very eyes 
flaming hot vision

The one whom sparks electric
who will forever and always burn 
softly inside out 
a candle sweet aroma scenting blossoms 
whispering fragrance off beauty

Silver echoes deeply 
within precious silent 
soft humming whispers 
sweet singing to a rose
blowing warm petal fingers soft inside waves
who will always sweep 
sweetly across the ocean 
Touching deepest sands 
warmly we hold hands
Living in the land of eternal youth 
always pure free as the driven snow 

Dewdrops shines 
in your sunlight rising 
Sparkling beautiful forever
smiling a little something 
wrapped up inside just for you
pulling on the strings warmly

dazzling the very light beyond beauty

The mouth falls wide open
barely able to close
words become faint smiling
upon a trail of fairy dust whispering
silently as it sprinkles

You landing with me enchanting
take me to you're paradise
as the gates slowly open 
breathing in your air

That wonder in the sky
has always been love 
how I saw you 
Faraway princess

Cupid's Golden Bow

Cupid's golden bow and arrow in hand 

always hits the target to the tightest degree

shedding his green skin like the chameleon he is 

the frog began drowning non-stop smiling as

he fell deeper into ocean colors of all shades a pearl

in a deep pool of beauty bathing so bright

he felt an electric bolt filled with deep undercurrents

string sparks fly in the first kiss with all feeling and intention


String sparks sizzilin' fly in the first kiss and bring  

dazzling amazing golden warm struck straight

but oh so gallant and oh so wonderful


In the heart on fire within passion hot

underneath the stars sailing of into space

inside floating around thoughts off the first mate

desires your affectionate smiles, laughs, and grins 

sings in the mind's eye grace of a thousand swans in flight

into another space over the Milky Way jewels sparkles a star

tender doting to the soul's eyes

floating to you bouncing inside waves

steaming hot seductive lashes 

floating through those curtains we join souls

uniting tender wooing and wonderful woven passion 

softly we forever kiss my love as desire always lays with you


I need and crave your love to take me to the edge of the night

dancing in my dreams struck deeply while 

turning this world upside down

into a golden paradise ball with all bells and whistles

that I've wished in my life


Cupid's golden bow and arrow in hand 

always hits the target tight and perfect

Always!  Always!  Always!  Always!

i wove you a poem

I had a dream.
In the dream I wove you a poem.

I used the fiber of my character 
to create spools of silken thread.

Then I dyed them 
in the colors of my imagination.

I reinforced 
each and every single strand 
with the strength of my love.

Spun the spools  
from the intricacy 
of my spirit.

Enamored by your vision,
I pattern every part of me,
every memory,
into every filament of my fabric.

I initialed my woven piece.

like the moon that hugs the sky at night. like a flower uncut that scents the garden bright a rare one of a kind number the warm embrace of slumber i wake you hard with full regard skin on skin to the bone, the grind, the screaming moan, climaxes like dominos fall rapid and jaw dropping catch breath whisper in the dark the euphoria of a notion (i hear you think "the time has passed long enough time enough I shall not wait a minute longer I need my breath to run fast and hard I need to try to catch this air but I don't want to" in a deep base i link) reply whisper in your heart "comme un arc de ciel like a rainbow tu touches mon coeur you touch my heart danse avec moi comme des cygnes sur un lac dance with me like swans on a lake" a melody in the language of romance serenade the sweet taste of light like the moon that hugs the sky at night bonne nuit ma chérie, en pensant à toi, que ta nuit soit calme et douce. dors bien.

Dancing with Joan Jett

Dancing with Joan Jett
Dancing close with Joan Jett is so wild, it’s 1989 and we go head to head. I’m the teen kid by the juke box and she is my wet dream in black leather, one foot in front of me. Pure bloody ecstasy. Garage music blares out of the speakers and we spin around, my arm catching her waist. Closer we draw; a kiss. First of many. 
Joan and Nick. Who would have thought it? Rock n roll music heroine meets a Lancashire lad in an intimate spit and sawdust gig venue in a nameless town. It happened, was happening now. 25 July 1989. A day before I was eighteen. 
By chance I got her gig ticket, last minute rush. Left my crap job and mental northern town and took the train to see Her, Joan Jett. My teen rock goddess singing live. How many guys wanted a piece of her? And a few gals too. Black leather, boots and an awfully short skirt...
And that black hair. Joan looked like a Goth. Her music wasn’t as dark and was more accessible. Darkness would come later, lots of it. 
For now, I danced close with Joan Jett. My head in her hair, eyes shut. Holding her like there was no tomorrow. Another kiss and I was smitten. No one would ever believe me, if I told them: ‘Hey, I danced close with Joan Jett. And we kissed...’
Never mind what happened later... that’s our secret. Yes I still do love her, am in love... 
...with Joan Jett.

Darling - For Tami n Al

Darling, you are beautiful, 
  With your skin, hugged tight to your bones, 
  And your eyes softly, lightly - closed. 
  Long lashes brush your cheeks, 
  Peace settled on your brow, 
  I am in love with you, like this - right now. 
Darling, you are so beautiful, 
  Frail and Fragile in my arms, 
  Close enough that I can keep you warm, 
  Your thin fingers splayed on my chest,
  You feel like heaven in my arms, 
  Asleep, you hold my heart in your palms. 
Darling, if you could only see yourself somehow, 
  See the light that shines inside your soul, 
  You are like a thousand radiant stars,
  A white washed moon, lighting up the dark,
  Every dream I ever had inside my heart,
  You are so beautiful - it hurts. 
Darling, when I look into your eyes, 
  I see a forest of beauty inside,
  Brilliant Autumn light - sparkling through the trees,
  You have this ability to awaken the best of me,
  I love how soft you look when you are asleep, but-
  I love it best, when you wake up and smile at me.
Darling, the whole world revolves around you,
  Like midnight moths to a fire,
  They are all vying - crying to touch you,
  And I can not place blame on anyone of them,
  I can’t help but touch you myself again and again,
  You are more beautiful than the brightest flame. 
Darling, I am lost in your beauty, 
  The magic of your smile, the lilt of your laugh,
  It is music played on crystal glass, 
  Angel’s harps plucked couldn’t sound so perfect,
  Head thrown back, diamond tears in your eyes, 
  I am filled, bursting inside with what feels a million butterflies.
Darling, your head resting gently on my chest,
  The short ends of your hair brushing my face, 
  I never knew how empty I was, 
  Before you filled my soul - so completely,
  You awaken every desire within me,
  You are so beautiful, you are so beautiful, you are so beautiful. 
Darling, you are wrapped around me, and I around you, 
  I see nothing in the world but you,
  The universe could beg for my attention, 
  But all I would see, is you lying here in my arms, 
  The most beautiful thing in all the world. 
  Darling, you are so beautiful, so beautiful, so beautiful.
Darling, you are so beautiful it hurts.

Magnolia Song

(for The Beloved and in honor of Arthur Rimbaud)
… the magnolias are far away – still, I sing, begging them for bridges to brood with stanzas of butterflies in the suffocation around and heat mocking the sea where once we walked the shore beneath the cruel commas of hawks showering seraphimic curses, pink roses upon storms flung upward from spotted, inverted baskets, northern Iranian mountains aching praying wandering the cavern between the olive-minuet of your eyes and mine absconding their color from above and knitted by anguished waves stumbling, floundering into lunar mercury, the slant of scouring rain throwing blue into our faces in cadences dribbling from lemons and leaves of tea, strong with riots of black peppers hurting our tongues along the central street of our knowing, speaking silence without riddles yet wrapped about our shoulders with brazen mysteries hovering above the staring magnolias which now have crowded in... … though I still sing and always will... … of you...

I fell in like with you

Inspired by one of my favorite bands, Rise Against, and the song is called,
“Ever-changing” (Acoustic). Please listen to this song if you don’t know of it. It’s raw &

“Have you ever been a part of something? That you thought would never end. But then, of
course, it did.” –Rise Against

“I fell in ‘Like’ with you”

With her smile
I melted unto oblivion’s redemption
Candy coated perceptions, windows’ gap
Seeping brilliance refreshment

Uncertainty resolution, polished
Absorbed into closeness sun
Yet these eyes still…see
Butterflies taking notice, missing you…as you stood in front of me

Strong, yet soft legs
Foundation of my face to rest upon
A cremated sin 

Yet, elongated moments of silence
Created abruption’s new face

The face of change
When she turned to me and said
“I’m not sure, anymore”

Emotional lullaby, rocking me to sleep
New battles with spectral flashback
Trying to get under my skin, a drunken tick facing demise

Phoenix’s sunrise, rejuvenating my recycled defenses
Yet, today, these rays just aren’t bright enough to burn sadness away

And with these sounds of storm clouds & Fall on horizon’s breath
These grounds are so familiar, yet bittersweet
This heart doesn’t want to be enlightened by karma today

It wants to be held for how it shines now

Denied…distance wins again today
Slavery whipped punishments in miles and blocks
This must end

Because I try to keep lines open to get a call from you
Yet all I hear are booty calls with busy signals

And yet something has kept me here too long
But can they leave me, if I’m already gone?

Something has kept me here too long
Karma’s laughter

But, through it all, I will shine


How I wish my mere presence can bring joy’s tear to her eye

Sadly though, now, the lines are drawn
Yet I wonder if this feeling is gone
Have the best parts of this…come and gone?


Maybe I’ll never know the truth

Perhaps she was misguided by jealousy’s deprivation
Deteriorating heart’s splendor

While I fell in “like” with her

Perhaps “Better Man 2.0” appeared from Cloud 9’s fallacy

While I fell in “like” with her

She held onto the past

As I, drawn to waterfall’s edge
Allowed myself

To let go…and F

BloodRed Silk


Crimson lace and black tie bows, afore this reflectless glass...

Laboring breath while untying her negligee to reveal, these lovely breast ~

Reaching for my palms with trembling hands; placing them atop her heart 

As wanton she stares; gazing deep within my eyes amid this silent desire

Pulling her close her neck to bare her nipples in flames; quenching my thirst...

Soft Creamy Chocolate Delight's


Driving through Santa Monica as stopping at a light; standing upon the corner

The most beautiful of girls; waiting with a smile to cross unto the other side...

Hourglass her reflection in diamonds while catching my breath, as the world froze 

Icicles of desire piercing my spirit to grasp these hearts; she felt the vibes ~

Sweet Shannon


All I wish and all I dream; sweet milky cream...

In this taste of your beautiful wet lips; nectars

Aneath these flavours swirling; your soft silk breast

Betwixt the warmth of your cry; pleasure of your sighs

And all I wish and all I dream; cherry screams...

Walking with you

The icy wind blows through
blushing our cheeks,

Eyes stinging and watering,
and mouths tinted purple.

Snow flurries whirl around us
nipping at our ears;
making our breath white and heavy.

So, we pretend to smoke.

But wide grins give away our game
With hearts purging laughter,

We look long at each other,
Eyes glinting sincerely happy sighs.

City sidewalks stretching out
Before concrete winterlands,
And you and me walking,

Holding and swinging our hands.

With you in autumn evening

The sweet songs of birds, We hand in hand across the lawn, Pansies white yellow and violet Tossing their heads in the breeze. Somewhere the sound of falling leaves. The sound of squirrel cracking the walnut. Calm weather warm sun, White fluffy clouds forming different shapes, A passenger flight in the blue sky, Sun born in the horizon and about to fade in the horizon, Both our heartbeats echo inside of chest, Shutting and opening of our lips, Your unkempt hair flying backwards, Yellowish west sky. Heart shaped fig leaf's shadow. If I could stop this world from spinning, I would do so, Just to be with you In this autumn evening.

Fingertips - Michael J, Falotico -



I reach in the dark with my hands stretched out the window.. 
My fingertips feel your vibe as the breeze that carries you starts to grow..
I close my eyes so tight and can almost feel your breathe.. 
Only way to hold you without taking a step.. 
With my mouth wide open I can taste your kiss.. 
What I can't see or touch is left in my head to miss.. 
Certain nights can almost feel the sensation of your tummy,
being shaking in pleasure.
The warm salty taste that forever is my treasure...

by~ P.D:

Finally! I feel your breath, I got you all to myself.
Some how thousands of miles feel only a square foot away.
Imagining you in arms distance comes with a tasty delight.
Please my darling rest your weary head on my legs!
Slowly massage your  fingertips upon my shoulders. 
In hopes that I may give you more to explore.
I surrender and value your gentleness ~ wanting more.
I want to feel you with my eyes close'
Gliding your fingertips with a touch only I desire; 
Your tenderness ignites me with an eternal fire. 
Greedily we will feel not wasting a single thought, 
including deep breaths~ you nor I cannot stop. 
Switching and opening the kisses you treasure!

Since First I Saw You

Since first I saw you, it was your eyes,
mesmerizing, your gaze transporting
me to a realm, not of fantasy, real,
where young men go when cupid’s
arrow takes root.

Since first I saw you, it was your lips,
captivating, holding me frozen 
in anticipation of our lips brushing
for the first time.

Since first I saw you, it was your voice,
a crescendo, light, invigorating, 
each word you speak intensifies 
my hearing, enveloping each
note, time ceases as I hang motionless
savoring, memorizing.

Since first I saw you, it was your hair,
long, flowing, gently rising above
your shoulders as a slight breeze
passes through sending waves
of your essence my way. 
The sun magnifying each strand, 
highlighting the minute
variances of invigorating color, 
creating a halo effect, a portrait of
your beauty forever imprinted.

Since first I saw you, It was you,
my love forever more for you,
only you.

A Note to the Indian Princess

The aunites gossip back home
About how you've grown
Out of your white cotton frocks
And into red silk saris

They talk about how you're ripe for marriage
About how quickly boys flock to you--
Your family's rich and you are beautiful.
Like a princess but with none of the excess.

Their perfect Indian girl is rather simple.
But, the real you they can never comprehend.
Those brown khol-rimmed eyes with
That understated nose ring confuses them.
They'd rather ignore your luscious red mouth.

Those soft lips were like velvet as they brushed across my lashes as you pretended to blow sand out of my eyes one drunken night on a Konkan beach.

Both too scared to be the first to say anything
We just sat there drunk and giggling

When the aunties speak of you
I can't help but imagine
Things that leave
Little to the imagination.

I am a woman
And you are a woman

We're on the same page.

The boys will wait.

Winters Love

    The winter of my love is here,

her cheek's glisten, in smile's and tear.

    Cold wind's blow, her love to me,

I feel her breeze, her breath i see.

    Her close touch, that keeps me warm,

her soft voice, from lips conform.

    Forever her love, for me will be,

This WINTER'S love, together so free.

Jungle Love

Your sweet nectar
wraps around my senses
like jungle vines
steady drums beating
Your heart near mine

Your strong hands
hold me suspended
by my waist
Just enough pain and strength
against my supple skin
For my taste

The musk of your
sculpted body and the forest
has me going wild
But yet, the tender way you
protect me, reminds me of
Being a child

A safe familiarity
with a strain of animalistic
Your invisible hold over me
leaves me arrow poisoned
Unable to function

My long dark hair wraps you
with smells of coconut and ocean Sun
your locks full of mud and enemies
together, my warrior
We make One

Luna's Light

A silver path shimmers
Across the sea and leads
To you lovely Luna lady,
Clustered by Cumulus clouds
And embraced by an indigo sky,
Enchantment emanates
From your glowing eye.

Lovers wrapped in moonbeams
Reflected by the sandy shore
Share kisses in silhouette shadows
In the magic of your rising,
In the soft music of the waves,
In the beating of passionate hearts.

She Shines

She shines
from the inside-out,
lighting up the atmosphere
with her radiant smile,
gleaming like an exquisite, rare gemstone
that I was lucky enough to have found.

And even luckier still,
how I was able to keep her
without possessing her like an heirloom.

No, I truly believe it has always been up to her,
whether to keep me or not.


Talking for hours through the night
as if we are still in highschool,
finishing each other's sentences,
never becoming bored.

During all of these years together,
there is only one blemished memory-
that rainy afternoon,
exactly 2 weeks after our honeymoon.
To this day, I cannot remember how it actually happened,
but I have such a strong recollection
of coming to,
feeling the shards of glass in my forehead-

and the hand.

That pale, wondrously sculpted hand,
flung onto the rich black soil.... out of place-

so wrong.

Cannot remember the moments before the hand,
nor the moments right afterwards.
But the memory of coming to and seeing the hand,
is etched into my brain with clarity.
How the blood ran down my face.
The smell of earthworms and wet leaves under my body
as I lay helpless and broken,
thrown from the car like a ragdoll.
Can recall exactly how the warm drizzle felt
falling gently onto the back of my neck.

Oh, all of these fulfilling years, 
before and since this one moment.
This one and only blemish.

She shines,
from the inside-out,
lighting up the atmosphere
with her radiant smile.

No regrets.
We still talk for hours on end,
all through the night
until dawn breaks,
finishing each other's sentences....

....even though she has been dead for 20 years.

How I Met Your Mother

I once vacationed in the company of silence,
It was an unconscious scene bestowed upon
Although I had a calling that answered my 
A myth of joy existed outside this career, 
I was left drowning in limbo, without an 
But there was a witness, who studied my trail 
without cause, 
And without apprehension, she helped to resurrect the 
the location of destiny; 
Allow me to reminisce on such. 

For it was in a previous portrait, that I encountered 
a dozen roses; 
Of these that I held, there were none that exceeded 
a brief touch,
A momentary scent that never returns; 
Now understand with this expression, it is not a
boast I intend to create, 
For I was seeking that gentle grip, in hopes of it never 
I continued a cold failure, never realizing the warmth of 
victory that smiled ahead. 

I settled on the peak of solitude, as my faith passed
away in obscurity, 
And yet, beyond these frozen eyes, there existed a 
narration of fate, waiting for my company; 
For you see kids, I’ve walked past the casual frame 
of your mother, 
And misplaced my sight, I’ve missed her spirit by 
petty inches, 
And when there was a vision of opportunity, my space
was occupied with trivial games. 

Then one day, I discovered a possession that linked 
heaven and earth forever, 
An umbrella your mother left abandoned; 
And yet, it was through her innocent misfortune, 
That I discovered her abstract songs, played upon
by the perfect key, 
Her heart that sits in prosperity, from the charity of 
A collection of beauty, your mother gracefully 
By the time we crossed into cupid’s lair, I knew 
already, the verses of duality were written true, 
And with that, the perfect stranger discarded her 
Leading Renee into popularity; 
Hello became the endless quote, we spoiled into 

As the task of life left this page briefly open, 
I responded with a mutual exit, confirming these 
lips of joy, 
And with revelations of challenge forever slayed,  
I peacefully fell, forever breathless.

Now I enter a new day with nervous breaths

A return of innocence

The red balloon that you want to win
In summer’s carnival

That hand you want to hold
But can’t
Those goosebumps that embed an uplifting silence

Pacing by the phone,
Echoes of ringtones and comfort greetings

A deep blue sky during autumnal Saturday mornings

Where, now,
I find myself standing by a solitary chair
In a school dance

As “Right here Waiting” plays in 500 watt flirtations
Hoping she accepts this dance

Living for the remembrance of you

Romantic palpitations reaching towards handwritten memories

Living for your remembrance of me

This 13 yr old heart
Towards a smile of irrevocable consequences

Caressing ivory keys upon resilient sunflowers

Awaiting our smiles to rendezvous unto willful sunrises

Our solemn faces against shoulders
Swaying to a never-ending stanza

Missing you, like The Police,
With every breath I take

For One Day

If I had only one day left with you,
I would ask that day be in God's own time,
one day, a lifetime, every moment
an expression of love,
every hour a new adventure.

twenty four hours to slowly pass
with you at my side,
a never-ending dream,
always giving thanks,
one day left with you, 

would be eternity.

I Once Loved the Sun

In those younger years
I made a friend of the sun
And allowed her to bathe me
In brown creamy skin

In those younger years
I ran across a beach
And played with the sun
Let her sprinkle freckles
Upon my healthy golden cheeks

In those younger years
I had my way 
With the sun
Took her in so many 
Different positions
Under the burn of her sultry touch

In those younger years
I  traveled to exotic climes
Just to enter my sunshine heaven
And soak up her glow

But the cave I now inhabit
Shuts out all the warming rays
The cave in which I hide
Repels all her sunny ways

The cave I made from earth and  
Never lets her kiss within
The cave I excavated
Collapses upon my daily sins

In those younger years

I once loved the sun

Last Summer

My memories of you were never really lost

Though fading more in every season's turn 

But I’ve found at last the nook in which they hide

Deep down in forgotten quarters of my mind

In a spark my thoughts repaired

The bleaching color of your smile

and now you are so clear within my heart

I realize with the breathing summer air

That our memories are scattered everywhere

I see us soaring with our kites

And our beings dancing with the sultry breeze

Within a glance I also see us in the sand

With love prints we have left behind,

Along with the yearning waves

For the promised kiss they'll cast to shores


When I peek at our once-shared bungalow

My memories there strike me with awe

How our love fuels us through the night

And how your craving touch tickles my heart

The way we fill each others crevices

Detonated pleasures sleeping in our flesh

And the way we sway in frenzied heat

'Til we reach the skies in sweet delight

But one night the envious heavens make a plot

With the conniving rain they extinguish our flame

I don’t know how to recover from pain

When you are taken by the jealous rain

But I know your spirit still exist

As to our appointed star still shining in the west

Sinew torqued and bowed as he pressed the weight Of drudge claimed goods to be stacked and stowed. The lady claimed that his omnipresent proclivities Would neither build strength of character nor stature. Laugh, she did, as she knew the wolverine has left the den, To build his muscle with more willing obstructions. The starving dog follows the master who feeds him: And she, the mistress, always leaves flesh on the bone

We Danced in the Kitchen

Hearts mangled by grief
Lost in separate mazes
Cooking a half-hearted meal
A turn of the head, a quick glance
Trembling hands reach out...
Right hand in left, a gentle waltz
to sweet soul sounds on the radio
We danced in the kitchen

Then hold-your-baby-so-tight
Swaying to Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes
'If you don't know me by now'...
Tear-soaked necks and shoulders
Melting into each other
Melting and blending into one
We danced in the kitchen

Oh how we danced
How we danced to the moon
How we danced to the dawn
How we danced in the kitchen

Sweet Jesus let it be so
Let it be so again
Let the music play on
Let us dance one last song
Let us waltz one last waltz
Let us dance in the kitchen

Memories etched in the sand

Sifting warm sand 
through my fingers,
shimmering fine grains 
glitter my palm.
filled with life’s memories
of nut brown days
of summer.

A soft silk breeze 
formed dunes
with our dreams 
that summer
when we danced to the stars.
My heart laced yours
listening to the sea
undulating waves of emotion
as we kissed 
on the velvet strand.

I still hear
the rhythm of the ocean.
Waves tumbling in unison,
a sweeping sound 
gently caressing
as we lay silently 
listening to sand
shifting over stone
to the faint chiming
of seashells.

My first love
a sea salted embrace
on a breast of sand.
The memories
forever held
in the sand
in glitter on my hand.

Flower Song

My petal love
tonight we sing
our souls fill with joy
I poet
have flowers and song for you...

Wine and dinner awaits
a most alluring Spanish moon
has risen over the sea
it is burning
suspended in center of sky
shining on all of the earth...

So sweetly comes the night air
I have roses and carnations
divine for you
small violets with lure of passion
and poignant tone
sweet chocolates for you to choose...

After dinner we shall stroll
down to the seaside
where no one shall see us
and what we have come here to do...

Your voice of fallen air
in zone of wonder in ardent dusk
marches playfully through my ears
as the night falls around us...

It is your orchid my love
my shepherdess of milk white dreams
later tonight my beloved
I will make bouquets of water
kisses upon your breasts and thighs
all with the fragrance of these flowers
I will savor you with joy...

The creator has created you
so you can nourish me
A laying tide of inarticulate air
breaks in front of us
the sea in foam
A symphony beautiful some god has forgotten...

I need your fragrant love
like the flowers need the water
we will see and hear the darkness go
perhaps see the morning light play
come my beloved petal
we live the dream of love tonight...

Intoxicating wordless Sound

Seeking the solace in its voice
As it sings and serenades.
Intoxicating wordless sound
Carried along on air currents,
Transforms wind to song.

Mellow notes with breathless voice
Plays like a lovers embrace.
Deep earthy sounds perceived by ear.
Romancing my heart through song,
An alluring sound from the flute.

It's a slow soft introduction,
To intense sultry seduction,
Entering worlds
Of heart pumping productions.
That have on more then one occasion,
Lead to total physical destruction.

And still we go there,
Cause we've moved beyond the point,
Where either of us care.

It's all about taking our time,
And getting things just right.
So we can enjoy the rapturous flavors,
Of reaching our climactic heights.

Mmmm baby kiss me one more time,
Mmmmm baby kiss me three more times,
Just one more time!
Baby kiss me again.
Let's see how many laws of gravity,
Our love making can bend.

Cause I swear!,
We are flying.
Flying to places,
Not even the sun and moon could go.
Transcending the heavens,
To only a place,
You and I could know.

Some would call it a miracle,
I just call it us,
Doing what comes naturally,
Enjoying moments of passion,
Till we both combust.

Loving and Breathing (Dilemma of The Broken Hearted)

Inhaled at the age of innocence,
with a breath that lies between stars,
with immortal depths that have no
ending as my lungs forever expand,
Exhalation has become unachievable,
due to the obstruction of faith
of a boy for his very first dream,
Chest heaving as a heart aches,

Is love a tree or the deepest ocean?
My breath or my reason for holding?
The questions unanswered since the 
dawn of man and emotion alike,
Thus the bittersweet conclusion
appears that love equals the two,
Yet how does such beauty create
a pain that suffers from insomnia?

Expendable only to a few torn souls
who have breathed the sweet intoxication
of love, and caressed the linger of its enticing
aroma, and suffered the sting of its departure,
Leaving hearts which cannot withstand the
agony, to exhale affection for everything in
its entirety, crushing the hope of such youths,
yet this warning takes nothing from its appeal,

For to breathe love, is to touch enchantment,
As romance itself in but a breathe shared 
between two spirits rewarded for persistence,
With the risk of being proven fallible,
which leads to tears and pain entwined,
Must we not embrace the risk as reward?
For those as myself, who answered "no"
are condemned to the most fragile breathing,

For each breath hurts like the last
One love, one lost, one breath in all,
Breathing her in as if she has become
the last breath of oxygen in my life,
For she has, she has become my only,
due to a choice made for the perfect love,
Yet my painful irony has become, breathing
and loving, with each one, keeping 
the agony of the other alive forever

Romantic Musings

Romantic Musings

Would he every come along
intune, as it were, to her heart’s song?
Will poetry be written
by he, of her heart, surely smitten?

She stands quietly
on the edges of hope
forlorn of love to one again meet

Would beauty be seen
in eyes, still fresh, from lasting sorrows?
Would he look beyond
wintered years, seeing new tomorrows?

By day she dreams
with poetic musings
penned wishes petitioning love to greet

Woodland Romance

"A woodland path in the dappled sun hushed and quiet"

As creamy blue cloud rests on tall tender trees
Peeps of early morning sun still awakes  dossing greens
Dull dews are yet to vanish from their sheltering leaves
Silences of monastery still arrest woodland paradise
The songbirds are yet to reveal songs schedule of the day
The echoing breath of nature
Still nurture patient under slumber's custody
Only four naked legs print love on woodland moldered leaves
A perfect sanctuary for lucky cupid and Venus
As calming breezy strokes of nature
Lull perfectly braided hairs
Affection breathes rhythm to drumming tongues
Sweeping feelings conquer trembling flesh
As lips gently explore one another
Keen tender arms stroll awaiting avenues
As soft sweet moans arouse jealousy among woodland beings
'I love you' falls from ecstasy driven tongues
A perfect world is created by conjoined spirits
Where comfort nourish mind and soul
 It's now evening
 As weary sun leisurely walks home
A head still rests on sweeter-than-mattress subtle laps

The Devil Wears Armani

The Devil wears Armani
By Steven Cooke

She was eighteen, I was thirty two
She was an unread poem,
I was yesterday’s gift.
Her heart she gave gladly,
Her beauty mine, to enjoy.
Given away in youthful sacrifice,
The Guilt was all mine.

But I take this gift,
For business is good,
And I seek many rewards.
What was love for her,
Was ego to me.

This man, her dream,
My dream, the pleasures of the night.
Her attraction, my Armani suit, my Astin Martin.
My attraction, just another bloom,
Found on the florists shelf.

So follow me, for Chanel no 5 Paris awaits.
Young beauty with eyes, so blue
And hair, so fair,
Who men desire
And women, love,
Come, your catwalk demands.

Look into my eyes, and see your future.
You will see my strength.
I will see my deceit.
You will see my friendship.
I will see my betrayal.
You will see your perfect love.
I will see a naked fool.

But do not judge me,
For my disciples are lined up.
Flashing their Cartier time piece, on life’s bar stool,

Intoxicated by their illusions,
Waiting, with a fashion house web.
To claim the next face,
The next soul, looking for love.
Just As the deserts wait for rain.
It is ordained

For the dove will find no love hear.
Only the thief, 
Who takes her beauty, and plunders her love.
Who will tarnish her soul,
And steal her youth.

Only false Honour left
 Kept in, A Gucci hand bag,
Full of lies, for friends to envy.

So look again my love
Choose wisely,
For the devil wears
Armani tonight.
And Prada will be his next victim.
Can I buy you a drink?
Love the dress.

Awakening Sunshine Morning

In loving warm tenderness
outside crystalised dew 
reflecting rainbow colors shine
shining frosted glitter sparkling love
beautiful upon the ground 

Looking towards a blue sky
brushed with pearl white clouds 
Dreaming in a plane's vapor trail
destiny calling within a path 
golden sun warm smiles touching deep
mixed with bird songs magic appears

A fresh cool December breeze blowing 
caressing the brow, thoughts baby 
whispering winds sings out in one union
rising up from the chimneys, smoke signals
Silver dancing wisps in warm turf fire

Romeo and Juliet (Our Story)Pt 2

Years and years have been lost to time, thousands of days,
 nights, and morrows seen and despised out of immense ache,
The Juliet of my early youth is no more, transformed into a
stranger, yet my love dies not! Though I plead and beg for
her to recall and rekindle the love affair of many moments ago,
She bears news of her plans of wedded bliss to another, news that
I curse my eyes for seeing, ears for hearing, and heart for knowing
is true! With desolate heart and soul, corrupted mind, and disregard
of future as that of a mad man, I fall to my knees and scream,
"God and heaven alike, I defy and deny you both! For no
father of mine would rip asunder my motivation for humanity!
Nor does any paradise remain alive without her presence!"

Be it his decree that I hurt for eternity both alive and deceased
then be it my decree that his life and love never was!
Thus I have become what I am, with no rue nor shame,
For I am not the tender Romeo that once lived and breathed,
No more do I dwell in her heart or mind, and no more do I wish
any essence of a Romeo dwell inside my soul, for my Juliet
is buried and lost in abundances of new days. No day, nor night,
nor morrow is good for me, Sans trust, Sans faith, Sans morality,
Sans love do I wish to have or hold, Dead but still breathing I am,

Condemned to memories and dreams of  elated yesteryears, 
denying my own will, but loyal to that promise which cannot
be broken by even the cold lifelessness of heartache, I shriek,
and yawp, and yell, and raise my voice beyond the sting of pain, as
I wake each night, bleeding the same sound from my lips,
"Juliet!, Juliet!!, Juliet!!!" Repeated until my eyes are dry and
my voice is drained to the most silent of whispers, I force out,
over tears, over ache, over agony, over all, in one last breath,

Oh Your Beauty

Attractive girls portraits (23) Your beauty extends Into the heaven Whispering secrets of Happiness and affection. You look up at me and smile With crinkles in the Corners of your eyes. The smooth beauty of bare skin, Soft stroke of hair like feathers. I'm lost in the smell of Your hair & skin, Your eyes pierce my soul. Gaze upon me With those eyes again, I'm longing to be lost In your embraces. You are exquisite fire, A smooth burn of wild beauty. Your curly, long, light-burgundy hair frames An exquisite blend of exotic beauty. Your touch sends me over the edge, A longing which no verses can describe.

lonely coffer spill out it’s smokey dispatch.

Letting pathos glow inside carrion’s beat,

I would endeavor this note reach a messenger

with quick feet, so that you would read it before

I became nothing more than a ruin,

damned by it’s own occasion.

I would speak with a gentle urgency,

through teeth like embers of brimstone.

" Let not your tender humor steer you

in a direction that would wilt us both. 

Fan the flames that have consumed me,

It’s a burn that fuels our passion

I love you and the pain that you bring,

you are the brightness in the sky,

and the darkness of night.

You are the sting of broken flesh,

and the sweet release of blood that flows.

You are the healing of my blackened benevolence,

and the anger in my wisdom.

You are my second eye, 

and my heaviest anchor.

You are the spark,

and the kindle.

You are my Queen.”

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

Begging Lips

Oh dearest 
most beautiful divine darling 
Like an angel uplifting love 
the ground begins crumbling 
underneath these feet 
floating I am to you 

In every warm breath kissing 
sweet sun setting delight 
you're always making me smile 
Even in the darkest night 
you're my fire fly 
blazing hot a dream 

When I am a fallen angel 
your love reaches down and picks me up 
Straight from out of the darkness 
that enveloped my being 
Whom rouses the spirit high 
empowering the mind 

Deeply dancing around this soul 
joyous music now sings 
smiling pure milky white 
would love honey 
just to kiss you

Slain lies the heart of innocence, a vanquished warrior
Of passions flame, melted is his shield of honor, this
Gladiator whom sacrifices all for pleasures desire.
Cutting deeply, do the knives of betrayal, leaving raw
Wounds exposed to the chilling air, of sorrows fallen
Hero, whom elups forth crimson tears of emotional
Regrets, in this arana of the broken hearted lovers.
Steels weapon of faith, melts in the weakened
Hand, as strenetith medusa turns upon him, shifting
Him unto the stone heart of loves lost soul, leaving
Behind a monument of gray.
The concurred romantic ceases, the last true bard
Writes no more, this lytrical man journies through
The valley’s of the shadowed heart, clinging upon
The light of hope, yet unarmoured this soldier
Battles blindly in the dark.
Maidens fall before him, kneeling, yielding,
Their inner being unto him, but the reddest
Rose petals possed before him turn blackish,
Unto his memory of faded elegance.
The wind still whispers her name in the
Darkness, the stilled frangrace lingers upon
The breeze, the softness of her fleshes coreses
Lies beyond his warmth finger tips.
But one another worthy shield maiden will
Revive this fallen foe, and no force in heaven
Or in hell shall separate these beating souls.

It is the pure mystery of amethyst
that inhabits my world
It glows in dawn light along
 receding shadows.
Cool, enticing it embraces my soul
Adds those  fresh dimensions to trees 
in  rain-swept meadows.
Everywhere, I see its shades repeat –
in the marbling of shells -sheen on a bird’s wing- 
veins in a rock - flower petals -
I wrap myself each morning in its lighter shades-
 cool,  lavender chiffon, and you come to me
the magic of amethyst in your kiss.

Happily Ever Disaster

I looked up and there you were
My prince
My fairytale
My happily ever after

You stood by my side
You made me strong
You made me believe in you
I trusted you

I looked up and there you were 
My enemy 
My deepist fear
My worst nightmare

You brought me down
You broke me apart
You made me give up my hope
I loved you

I looked up and there you were
My living hell
My darkest night
My happily ever disaster

I'm saying fairwell

A First Stolen Date-w

It was a stolen date on a late winter evening
Placing rosy dots on her cheek with a hug
A secret told to the senses instead to ears
Then found the right place for the kisses,
Kisses stamped one after the other like tears.
The real ones that I could not hold them back.
There were brief, swift and before were done
The floodgates open for everything else
Starting with a comma then a question mark
Followed by an exclamation point learning
The basic spelling that all lovers should know.
I began the kiss and she begged more at the end.

Love declares His Love

Love they say is a many splendid thing-

Love wove for me
Such a fine necklace
All gleaming with tiny droplet pearls
That hung from a sheer gossamer thread
Dazzling in clear beauty
Glistening in the morning gold of the frosty morn

Love sings for me the finest song
From the golden throat of a nightingale
Like the sounds of many violins
Stringing a tune of lonely times and long lonely nights
when he waited and listened to the wind for my whispers
Of loving response

Love shines and twinkles in the midnight hour when
Declaring on heavens evening robes where
Jewels dance across life’s moving screen
Love declares His undying passion
For me

Then dawn rose from a heart on fire
It lit the garden with morning sun
Radiant-wearing the finest perfume
And colors of the rainbow bowed
In memory of our first lost embrace
The King waits anxiously-
For my smile and my heart.

A Message from West Texas - Recited

She sent me a message while I was walking Mr. Reilly,
She said “Look up, and tell me what you see.”
I thought I would impress her with my poetical ways so I answered,
Bus zooming by…
Brown leaves on the sidewalk ahead,
And a shadowy figure that Reilly and I will soon pass,
The smell of the Indian bakery warming my insides on an autumn evening.
“I love fresh bread,” she said, “What do you hear?”
Crisp slate grey sky,
And the wind gently shaking loose more tan and brown leaves,
And cars sliding by,
Each with its unique sound of tires on asphalt,
 Creating its own steady hush.
She then messaged, “You’re very good at this,
I’m going to read that again!”
but I went on…
A few drops of cool rain,
The rain here, even when it’s pouring,
Seems to be made of a lighter liquid.
It’s not the hard thick drops of a West Texas down pour,
And it’s almost disappointing when
I don’t have the residual layer of dirt on my windshield after the rain,
They say there is thunder in the springtime,
But I suspect they don’t know what real thunder is,
Here in California.
In the West Texas springtime,
When entire sky is filled with all the mountains,
That are missing from the landscape,
You can feel the power and,
The threatening posture of the storm,
But you take up the challenge and face the lightning,
And it fills you with excitement,
And if you have a lover,
It is during these storms that your fantasies come true.
Silver flashes across your lover’s skin,
Passion filled faces caught in the strobe of lightning,
And the pounding rain beating on the windows.
The mix of cold wet air, 
And the sweaty heat of deep kisses and breath.
They don’t know what they’re missing here,
In California,
But I do,
And maybe someday I’ll have her.

Is It Love

Is it love that makes me choke on my thoughts
Whenever I am near you?
Is it love that makes my hands so clammy
Whenever I want to touch you?
Is it love that makes my heart erupt
Whenever I think of your smile?
Is it love that makes me surrender 
Whenever your voice is singing?

It is Love

If you name a poem something cheesy like--- Venus --- it Will only get twenty reads

"What's your story?"
she questions,
"you seem interesting."
in eyes
I reply, "NOW."

often people become confused
by such a unique response
not this one

she's a beauty
shiny minded stone
lives warm under veins
lacks definition of alone

alone she stands
tallest green blade
each time the oily blade passes above

she stays the same
tingling pulses exhale her pores
she'd rather sink
than have to think the way of worldly whores

malice skips her
no ripples in the lake
dripping from her face
sunshine slips across tangerine cheeks

gold flows throughout waves 
streaming locks
sky clear eyes surprise those
choosing to be consumed 
by her entice

hands free of envy
no webs to spin
hips unmolested
thighs slick

be warned
she will divide you
no voodoo 
or silly twisted games
though safe may escape you

the girl
baby of zero maybes
she knows

as clarity lent us its giant umbrella 
her lipstick smacked my tongue 
from there
we never looked back

Only if

beautiful lady
holding you
ever so gently
in the softness
of beauty

as the violin plays
touching souls
under a full moon
i dance
with you

silver shadows
dancing a waltz
black velvet

in silken 
soft feelings
in loves melody
singing out
in your earthly

my spirit rises
in beating wings
the heart 
on the drums

reaching high
hands out
in a flash 
of light

i hand you 
the moon
flashing stars
in loves 

as the sun 
kisses the moon
a dancing groom
my night

Burgundy and scented candles
dinner at eight
pacing with clammy hands
she is running late.

She usually does
arriving bathed in candlelight
always the muse
capturing the essence of night.

I let her sip from my glass
the wine was for me
the room becomes a spinning world
of forests, castles, clifftops and restless sea.

Promises are spoken like shooting stars
falling to earth upon our lips as kisses
romance by scent and touch brings such wonder
like a verb dancing in the center of a noun.

Some nights I have this dream
that she writes of me in prose
sitting on her bed with writer's hands
on pages on which the torchlight glows.

Perhaps next time we'll picnic in a park
even if it's a moonless night
I'll bring a glass jar full of lightening bugs
to provide us with a romantic torchlight...

A Disturbance

This beating heart keeps haunting me in the dark,
When the sun walks steps to the surface, painting a glowing fade
I try to forget, no I do not need to pursue the missing element
For the element may have a substitute, mirroring characteristics of it, as well
But why does this aching not depart?
What pumps through these chambers is a sickness, tearing me apart
And in the night, when breathing doesn’t exist in presence,
Silent and still, except for the beating of this heart
This heart is isolated, and it screams woe with every thump
Surpass the disgust of it and hunt prey till successful
But the bait fails to attract my desire, and I am once again defeated
And the nibble, which also teases my wretched heart, leaves me beaten
The element persists in mystery, and I sense how unattainable it is
If only I could seek means of expressing how strongly I covet you
Your everything, but in importance, your scarlet ardor
Oh, how I would decease the beating of my disturbing heart for the life of your striking love,
But then, where would I go?
I feel as if my movement would perish without you, my love
So I wait, hands on the clock now ticking louder than my horrid heart
My heart battles time, impatient of the day I can obtain my element
But perfect element, I shall wait for you.

My Heart

My heart is wound around your heart.
Mine is sustained by the beat of yours every day.
My dreams are wrapped around your dreams,
As I find peace in your arms and ways.

My vision is colored in life’s beauty
And you were the one to show it to me.
My happiness grew out of the knowledge
Of the life you built with me.

You taught me how to love this world 
Amid all the tragedies that befall a life.
And you taught me to find God’s way
When he brought you, my soul mate, into my life.

desire becomes
the heart's need
passion it breathes
in embers

flames sparking words
relights ablaze
burning red
from the mirror
of one's soul
touching smiles

a dream
forever beautiful
igniting in the deep
embers burning
wild feelings

food of love
melting softness
eternal desire
a second heartbeat
feeding the fire
deep burning flames

a temperature rises
burning red passion
a single rose
in these ashes

Autumn's Breath

 i gather my thoughts
like a squirrel
scurrying to find nuts
as it rustles
through leaves
on crisp lawns

the air is warm
as am i
when wrapped 
in thoughts of you

i can almost feel your touch
press against me
a breath of air
touches there
as autumn breathes
slightly cooler
then you

memories twirl 
in my mind
like these little leaves
as they spiral down

suddenly i am blushed
more than the trees
as i remember 
our first kiss

i look at the branches
slightly quivering in the wind
as did i back then

as i watch the sun fade
slightly redder than i
the ground and trees
mirror her reflection

i marvel at the beauty
and wonder
why does everything
so beautiful have to end
soon these trees
will be stripped of color
stand naked 
in blankets of white

autumn breathes again
somewhat cooler than before
i shiver beneath her touch
and my thoughts fade
with the night...

the scent of autumn fills the air
as i head back home
i can hear the crackle
of fresh burning wood

you await by the fire
your lips reach towards mine
i tremble within
i feel your breath
against my flesh
and i remember
autumn's breath
and blush as i think
perhaps there is beauty
in being naked
beneath blankets of white

held within wings

a blanket 
begins unfolding
treading on dreams
softly a mist
begins creeping
in the soul
without shadows
echoes falling silent

walking without colour
in a distant fog
i see the sunshine
glistening dew
upon leaves
cherry lips
blossoming red
sparkling in essence
something beautiful

tears begin
falling deeply
shed in happiness
how much 
it all means
touching love
one soul
is the butterfly
within wings
folding them around
your heart

Hidden or Forgotten----A Valentine

I found it safely tucked away, Held deep within her private things She put it there, with lock and key Intended, not, for eyes to see? A cherished thing?.... Forgotten, ...when? Or was it not?...Perhaps and then.... Does it tell of secret love? Another spring, or just a whim? A treasured time, a change of fate? The date it holds, confuses me Revealing now, "what might have been?" When sleep upon her eyelids came And took her fairness far from here What held her name, with antique flair Of lilacs blooming, roses paired With lacy hearts, and cupid's spear This tells me secrets, something dear... Someone loved her, someone cared long before my Grandpa dared

A kiss worth its taste

She’s too tough for hallmark’s corruption,

                too cool for an easy rhyme.

If I were to bring her flowers, 

I’d have to buy a package of

Reese’s cups, and a bag 

of licorice to construct

a bloom worth savoring. 

She craves the originality

of a still dreaming sun rise

popping its back against 

the morning, wiping 

cloudy sleep out of 

the eyes of our 

lambent sky.

The calm of hot tea’s

embrace, as the warmth

of its revision surges

down a chocolaty wasted


The purity of a love 

sweetened kiss, 

in the arms of life’s poetry.

If I were to bring her flowers,

I’d bring them with that embrace;

A kiss worth its taste.

Promenade    and step!
He as Romeo    she as Juliet
Whirled about wildly in the dance
Met they both – just bumping – by chance

Promenade    and step!
Look away without fear
At she ‘neath white mask
Would she dance with him    dare he ask?

On suffocating, noisy crowd!
Each with secrets
Each yearning    
Protected as by shroud

Promenade    and step!
Music so lively
Champagne and wine
Drunken dance    three quarter time

No telling saintly from infamous
Nor telling dark from light
Careless dancers
Candles so bright

Promenade    and step!
Bold  and free from alarm
Costume and voice their only charms
Two now met in each other’s arms

How could I ever be in such a state?
Years ago I watched your lips as you spoke
They were so beautiful
Naturally red they oozed sexuality
When you smiled and when you pouted
My eyes were drawn to you
Years later my mind still wanders
Remembering a special minute
A minute lost in the veils of time
I still see your lips in my dreams
I have kissed them and million times
Yet I never tasted their sweetness
I imagine they were blessed by the gods
Given the slightly touch of ambrosia
Is it possible that my memories are mistaken?
My fantasies twisted by emotions
Maybe It is better that I never kissed those red lips
Maybe a moment in time is better remembered
Who knows how that one kiss
The one that never took place would have turned out
At least, since the kiss never took place
I have my memories and no matter whether or not it happened
That kiss and those red lips showed me what love could be
Even if it was only in my mind.

The Shifting Sands

The Shifting sands
Kingdoms of Dunes
Desolate sands
No life. Low tide
Landfalls now twixt mud and sand
And then the seals appear
Their sad calls staying in my memory

I walk the dunes
Why am I sad?
I’ve just returned
Alive and not wounded

The girl I left behind
A friend I thought
No commitment
No declaration of love

The enemy advanced
I was hard pressed
But while in deep despair
I thought this was my end
I realised then
I loved her

But when I came to her
She’d found another
she said “Just a one night drunken stand
So ashamed
Could I forgive?”
Logic says I should
I made no promise
Nor did she
My ego’s not so sure

More seals arrive
Floundering on the mud
They call to me and say
“Forgive her? What’s to forgive?
You had no right
You do not own her.
Go to her now and beg forgiveness,
Declare your love.”
I walk the dunes
Why am I sad?
I’ve just returned
Alive and not wounded

I go to her posthaste
To beg forgiveness
“What for” she cried
“Because I turned my back in wounded pride” I said
“I have no right to judge
Can you forgive me
I love you please take me to you heart.”
Oh Joy unbounded
She forgives me
And offers me her heart

Kingdoms of Dunes
Desolate sands
No life. Except us two Low tide
Landfalls now twixt mud and sand
And then the seals appear
Their sad calls staying in our memories
We walk the dunes
I am no longer sad I’ve returned
To meet my love

Night Poem

It waits...
A prickle about to lodge
In the heart of a Mighty Light

Above the low-dipped setting sun
The Knightly Night prepares to come

To lift me like a rising fog
Up to greet the countless stars -
That twinkle at a Sun's descent.

The horizon painted with lullaby
Of colours and their somber tune
Day's bed is laid behind blue mountains
And quietly it goes to sleep.

Inside the womb of a Sleeping Day
Begins a fierce protest 
of dreaming thoughts
Now stirred awake.

Then out of the thick and cluster
And whatever dangers of flight await
Newborn wings of thought emerge
And rise and rise and rise
Captured by the winds of Night -

To wander heights
To kiss the skies
To dance to the gentle humming
Of spirit drums -
Wings beating
A duet with the breeze.

So when day comes breaking through
Dawn is greeted by what was writ
At the festival of it's eve.

With merriment's ink: 
A Kiss; 
A dance; 
A song etched deep: 
Art carved out of sky.

i leave for you
one petal 
of a feeling
wrapped up 
inside emotion
among'st the sweet
cherry blossoms

droplets of dew
in misted eyes
fall unto 
the ground
in a prayer
one said

just before 
the sun 
it went to sleep
warm within
the bones
feelings melting together
from happiness within

beautiful soul
colours of a rainbow 
bouquet colour
written in the stars
a birth 
of an angel

does one's 
destiny call
as the moon winks
to you oh princess
shining out 
a delight

wishing so kind
flickering candle light
one sparkling treasure
scented purest
of jasmine
dripping honey
like morning dew

golden paradise
sweetly smiles
i wish for you
upon your beauty
the face of the world
that of happiness

my smile 
upon you
a happy face
oh one

smiling down softly
a star winks
casting silver shadows
precious feelings

Emotion lights up

Silver this chalice...
Placing it atop the mantel
Stoking passions fire which burns
Red the wine while night spreads its 
Cloak and frost becomes the glass 
That another autumn's repose; bare
These branches dripping to grasp
Visions which etch her beauty's name
About the rose clad windows pane
Adorned with day two heart's...
She claims; waltzing up this path
Sage the vase where petals fall 
Joyous shadows upon the twineful wall 
Pirouetting amid silent streams; light 
Her knock her voice a souls delight...
Gold the chalice of, my beautiful beloved.

Forbidden Love

Dear  Forbidden  Love 

I am here to say good-bye.
I know that we are through.
But I had this on my mind...
I wanted you to know that I still loved you even though time has passed.
I know I tried to forget about you, but real love doesn't fade that fast.

I missed you so much I can't explain it so I wont even try.
If there was a way I'd find it if it meant being by your side.
So why should I try and hide it?
My love for you can't ever die.
It can only grow stronger for you. 
This is true for a fact my love for you it is so deep that no man nor beast could understand it in the very least.

Our love was unbreakable.
It went beyond the unthinkable.
It went past the sun, moon, and stars.
But even so even it was lost at some point.

Our love was forbidden.
A heart breaker in itself.
Two star-crossed lovers with no one to reach out for help.
This is why I must say good-bye my forbidden love~

Strawberries And Champagne

Gay held the moment we had longed for, at last...
A tad bit tipsy atop the moonlit grass; shyly saying 
She wished or needed to go, pooh; smiling turning
My head away as she did; so much better she said
While then we toasted this night, our night; fleeing
Awkward nerves pretentious worry; both nineteen
Virgins trying to break through, love's desired gate.

in potions 
of feelings 
our stars 
cross path 

Magically flowers 
blooming blossoms 
enchanting out 
bewitched wide eyed 
dazzled completely 
blows the mind 
a lucky star

The Superman

I have babysat a roomful of six year olds, 
my heart beating louder than a pack of screaming hyenas.

I walked out with them quiet and safe in their parents arms.

I improvised a speech to an audience of millionaire entrepreneurs 
that ended in a standing 'O'.

Often I danced with titanic sharks, 
and even French Kissed Killer Whales.

I have slept deep in the grip of ink black jungles 
on mid summer nights, no dream.

Once I hung on with two broken arms
five hundred feet above my demise, without a whimper.

I skated through fields of dead bodies
in not just one but two very nasty wars.

Played tag with the devil and in the end hung 
his left horn above my fireplace, 
yeah my fireplace I owed him that.

I swam naked on the crest of a waterfall
from the top of its peak to the concrete sheet at its bottom.

Many times, I have partied with death,
her bones drenched in the fluids of our perverse acts, 
but not once did she leave the party with me on her arm.

But please,

p p p please,


please don't,

make me talk to my EX-WIFE again!

hold my heart

fountain of beauty 
and love 
Cascading down the walls 
of my heart,
dark forests rise 
in motion 
to salute you 
In the creation 
of waves, 
bowing to your world 
A motion 
of great grandeur 

On the heather 
clad hillside 
With ragged rocks 
among'st the heather, 
sweeping out 
towards the ocean 
A vast wilderness 
of water 

In a tranquil 
peaceful setting, 
romancing the very stones 
I am the moss clinging 
Mystical paradise 
Mirror of life 
and existence,
dreaming of you 
under a hawthorn bush 
In the aroma 
of blossoms, 
kissing the sea 
in the parting of lips 
Moist in a dream 

My nostril flare 
within aroma's scent
Sweet as would be the taste, 
like my breath exhaling 
Rippling winds 
passing by, 
whispering to me 
sweet nothings
Walking along 
a primrose path 
from the enchanted forest 
I make my journey 
to you my fairy queen 
Speaking to you in 
ancient tongues, 

through the melody 
of the harp 
Underneath the fairy tree, 
played on each string 
attached to my heart 
deep inside
 plays sweet music  
burns you the desire 

In a chain 
of daisies 
Dreaming underneath 
the sun, 
in the gentle touch
 of its beauty 
Touching me 
with your wand, 

the touch 
of an owl's feather 
Sparkling light
 touching beautiful 
my dream emotion 
Rainbows of color 

Loves so vast, 
you can be 
my fairytale 
Walking with you 
loving  like the breeze 
Holding your hands 
in my heart 
pining on
 your return

Beating love

In the inner depths 
Like a flower 
warm touching emotions 
Dressed in dark 

in the embers 
A loving devotion 
Sparking in dreams 
Not being able 
To do without 

In the clouds 
A gentle sigh 
Within feelings 
At one with 
the silver lining 
Shines beauty 

Lifting the curtains 
Sparkling emotions 
A dazzling jewel 
Smiling happiness 
Raising the spirit 
To the highest 

A whisper falls 
upon the breath 
The soul sings out 
In it's breeze 
Gives wings 

Love you take 
The very breath away 
The heart flies 
In the spirit 
of you 
Without wings 

Floating heartbeats 
Banging on the drums 
Within emotions 
For you 
my dream

Enchanted Princess

Enchanting beauty
of royal birth
shining brightly 
as the sun
like Repunzel’s
flowing curls 
of luxurious 
golden hair,
like Belle’s 
delightful smile
a magnificent
crown of glory 
quite elegant 
and refined,

As enduring 
as Snow White’s
  unconditional love 
ever precious
a handsome prince’s
noble dream
like Alice’s 
a life’s journey 
beyond the mind’s
in Neverland’s realm
under the spell of
Tinkerbell’s magical 
pixie dust,
A mysterious 
quite alluring
as Tiana’s
magical makeover 
come to life
like Ariel’s 
a whispered
softly sung
to quiet
inquisitive child,
A journey 
of a lifetime
born of Mulan’s 
courageous spirit, 
ever powerful
as Pocahontas’s 
everlasting loyalty 
and strength,
like Jasmine’s
wondrous splendor
and heart of
pure gold,
ever effervescent 
fairy tale 
faithfully retold,

An odyssey 
of mythical change
just begun by
a valiant daughter,
young Merida
a jubilant soul
before her time,
a free-spirited 
first-born child
forever brave
and daringly bold, 
bond on a quest 
of endless surprise
before dawns 
the second sunrise,

A Sleeping Beauty
ever captivating 
in endless sleep 
ever profound,
lovely Aurora
a shining jewel 
rarely seen
at last is found,
a priceless pearl
forever blessed
quite delicate
forever bond,
awakened in bliss
born of her heart’s 
beckoning call by
true love’s first kiss,

A wonderful
ivory princess
delicately adorned,
a blissful sparkle 
twinkles in her eyes
as two hearts
joyfully embrace,
a royal wedding
a dream come true
as love’s soul mates
are joined together,
before one and all
happily ever after
at Cinderella’s
grand ball

Say My Name

Curiousity is definately an understatement,
an obsession, or crazy desire. More like it.
The smell, the sound, feel or taste.
All senses working as one to create it, 
a higly addictive state of mind, full of haste.
Anyone can or can't, make it happen or work it.
Expressions, and high emotions 
or is it just the motions?
Is it your surroundings that create, this 
vindictive passion?
Or is it words that get this fantasy going?
It's a different motivation for everyone, 
result is the same.. I want you to say my name.

lost in space
standing at 
the crossroads
between Heaven
in that of hell
i stand 
a lone fiddler
from the dust
of ashes 
one breathes

a towering
heart burning inferno
which got burned
scorched hell
drawing magic
in a memory bank
now opening
the curtains
etched on 
chamber walls

i play 
a sweet tune
as the embers
begin breathing
drums begin beating
like the phoenix
a yearning inside

one soul
i arise 
from the ashes
light of love
sparkle and shine
remaining in embers
awaiting loves call

My Soul to Hold

My Lover,

Take my soul—once more,
Forget me not, as daisies trodden on
Which on the hill is found.
I am a weary way-worn traveler,
Onward bound to my native shore,
Desperate seas I roam alone,
Waves of clouds I chase away,
Island mist upon my face,
Let us meet—once more.
Grasp love’s newest breath,
Say you love me true,
Warm and freely I give to you,
My soul to hold—once more.

Dreams will never cease, 
I dream of our walk together
the lane of rustling shades
The holding of our hands
That gave simple but immense pleasure
The lying on the beach with star filled night
The misty night with moon
That paled in our love and fervour
I hold all these of you my dear
Dream never cease will never cease
I will never allow it to cease
So what if you are gone
The blast has taken you away
But my dreams are in tack
Never to leave you away
You will help beat my heart
You will help me live
You will breathe along
To make my life mammoth
We will live for peace
We shared those thoughts in serenity
We dreamed of all those tranquility
Now we live through them
With no qualms…….sunkan

Morning Sunshine

our hands are interlocked like threads in a soft cotton shirt

such an easy feeling of bliss

the polariod picture forever saved in my mind

the sun shining ever so cautiously through the curtains not to disturb the moment

your hair radiates a beautiful dark amber a color for the heavens

thoughts of complete satisfaction and happiness run rampant in my head

can we lay here together forever keeping the truest emotion in our hearts?


if not

we can revisit the moment for it is a new journey we found together

it can not be taken away from us because it is embodied in me...

everyday in your heart

No matter how bad my day has been
I always look forward to seeing you again
you make me happy when i'm sad
you can make me forgive when i'm really mad
It's because of this I will never give up
I will never lose hope
When you feel as though your world has fallen apart
Just think of me and i will be in your heart
If things always seem to go wrong and you start to lose hope,
Just take out this poem and read it again
And no matter how bad your day has been
You will find that you still have my love deep within

softly touching (I feel a stir...)
upon keys
a piano speaks
in cello
fluttering chords
tugs strings 
deep within
(a deep tingling sensation within...)

sadness flows (My eyes tracing...)
dancing with emotion
feelings flowing
a river
joining hearts
flowing an ocean
in salted emotions
(a focused soul with open arms...)

our world (I embrace with joy...)
so much suffering
powerless to help
on baited breath
shawled within crying
fluttering so gently
a floating breeze
each string cries
(as my heart flutters above oceans...)

as the piano speaks (I hear a soft whisper...)
softly telling 
the story
a wounded sparrow
cries a songbird
fluttering broken wing
(as my fingers reach out to caress...)

so soo beautiful

a lighted candle
perfumed lavender
softly in a breeze 
i blow you a kiss
from the moon
stars they wink
saying goodnight

 to wonder
in the night
upon the face
lighting up in the dark
with a magical
soft smile

shines out beautiful
glowing feelings
 flickering caresses
deep emotions
warm in candlelight

softly whispering
a flower in spring
in a daisy chain 
in its circle
will you be
my angel

touching deep 
innermost depths
touched deeply
played on cupid's harp
the sweetest words
became music

cast in a spell
tugging at the chords

An Offline Hello

An Offline Hello

Whatever happened to hello?
Meeting and shaking hands
That moment of sharing yourself
That was a big part of life
There were no strangers
Just friends you haven’t met
Conversation used as an ice breaker
Learning more about the person as you spoke
That was an eternity ago
Before the invent of smart phones
Constant contact with the internet
Naked pictures and Facebook pages
Embarrassing videos from when you were a teen
Slander and gossip posted in a moment of anger
A million pages of someone with the same name
Not all of it true
But it must be since it is on the web
One time go back to the old days
Meet face to face not screen to screen
Forget that you have the ability to text
Sit down and just talk
Get to know each other
Take time to learn their history and mysteries
For once don’t look them up on-line
The real person is so much better
They just want a simple hello

Lithaniel and She

The dark wood is breathing blue,

   and sense do I a sweet sound

   of larks and their legendary love,

   and sweeter scents still do I

   drink of Apollo's bidding,

   'neath forest roof and billowed sky,

   Lithaniel upon her woody heights

Aloft  'neath crest of moons,

   and a yawning lake of crimson trim,

   wedded and blushing,

To sunsets red as soft sylph lips,

   and dawns to dream of her beauty;

   easy solace stretched out in all her glory 

Many times have I entered her house 

   once bitter,

   guilty of lesser climes,

   drunk with evil;

Yet for the unfailing footpaths 

   winding with lilac copses,

   ' et le gentil colline'

   sobered a fool and his silent darkness,

   tamed to truth at last

No joys for my labors,

   nor dull love gives me pleasure

   with her arms empty to another,

   a 'new' perfume to rouse envy;

Lithaniel's decor of sheen forests

   and rolling solitude remind of her;

   my hands touch leaf and wind,

   yet not she....

Her soul in the shadow of all things,

   her sweet breath in the waves of fields

   and birds in flight grin of loss -----

   such sorrow to grieve her while she lives!

Never could I have her always

   as sure as my sight does see

   beauty arrayed and stretching to lime seas;

   love must go its way....

   hazel-eyed with tears....

No pain could I hold her still,

   us now too wild with death ----

   kisses gray with ancient love,

   her hand cold and unmet

Lithaniel I must leave,

   as her ----

   as she of old loves,

   dreaming in the woods....

   yet I dared to ask her,

   many a memory past

   ' Come, walk with me once more? '

Once more we walked Lithaniel's

   summer purge, cruel to a point

   with bright hope at noon;

Children, and mothers and fathers ----

   and a white and black swan 

   leaning still as two in swanny kiss;

Some new love is more the day,

   fresh as spring rain,

   the sun seldom takes leave

   blinded by old clouds, but clear to smile

   as a baby's glee;

We have wandered too far.....

   there is no soul to each,

   no soft peck and tickled whisper....

The world glows as some planet-god

   no more,
Though I held her for a time,

   in some strange wind,

   she is gone -----

   forever walking the setting sun

And Lithaniel weary with sleep

   (the company of moons I keep)

   Keeper of the elder love,

   to soft shadows and sleep

  (night shall be my gracious host)

 (A finale to an old flame)

She and the Bumblebee

Lady, with blossom buds in thy hair....

   how fortuitous for me the day is sweeter 

   in the shade of your presence;

   what tall stock thy stem, and flowered

   your bulb of precious petals,

   crimson as the weeping rose....

Longing thy eyes, and bright with hope

   so quickly we became friends,

   laughed 'til after hours,

   deciding the fate of the world,

   holding hands in some cozy little cafe....

   pulling away....

   quick blush smiles,

   the patter of rain....

   two inflamed hearts....

But she wants to know what he wants....

   (he does not know) but has grown

   lost in her eyes, and her 'gentile' smile

   (he wanted her to be happy)....)

To adore her a little more,

   before she would leave and find Prince Charming....

But she said she was an ordinary woman,

   with ordinary needs....

   a flower among many, waiting

   for her little bumblebee;

He must take her pollen just so,

   and have none other in his flight....

   and rest so buzzing upon her feminine delights,

   and crawl gently into her heart

   the leap of a King....

   what a Queen to find ----

And educate the dark of his mind,

   she so easily (wonderfully)

   so displayed in the simplicity of a cafe,

That her one flower among numerous found,

   what a fate in the midst of romantic bloom....

   but I had flown no more (with broken wing)

   though buzzing, rested upon her soul

   (and poised an answer of a man with ordinary needs)

   (I, a little bumblebee....)

bewitched by beauty

i feel 
this flowing
like a fountain
you are judging me
on somebody else
but it's certainly 
not me

so i begin 
to draw 
for you
paint a picture 
of your beautiful face
this is so hard
to really explain
as you
mean so much
to me 
your sweet honey

i am soft 
deep inside
with a big heart
smiling at the world
but all i want to do
is be every thing
to your sweetheart

loving you 
was my breeze
feelings just 
keep floating
emotions leaves
fall unto 
your ground
gently touching
softly the heart singing

it shines out
glittering gold
you are beautiful
upon the crown
you are my jewel
queen of
enchanting oceans
its you baby
i want 
draped around
my neck

lips on lips

per chance we happened to touch
your hand barely feeling mine

a wisp of air disappeared drew us near
so flesh to flesh were we

a tornado spun us face to face
and the mildest of earthquakes
shook us and locked us
!lips on lips!, 

if there were a heat wave
drove us crazy, and we
you and i, actually kissed

would you?
would you be terribly angry?

The day when we walked an autumn park, hand in hand, what joy the feel of your breath
ignited in me - the gold in the colored leaves. the aura surrounding you. the red that floated 
to the ground like the fire that flowed from your fingers through to my veins. The trees 
multifaceted in hundreds of shades were the perfect backdrop. 
The autumn day could hear my heart, it was beating so loud. I wanted to hide with 
you, with just the touch of your hand, with just our eyes locked on one another, and 
freeze the euphoria I felt when we walked one day an autumn park hand in hand.

alone lips cold
awaiting warm softness
in shades of blue
a warmth
within emotion
happiness falls
on a dream

as the blood 
flows red
one rose
blooms out softly
in petal
soft feelings
gently rains
touching softly
the cheeks

a wind whispers
kissing the moon face
in shadows
of silver light
upon clouds
following dreams
emotions roll
within one soul

love i see you
rising morning
warmly dressed
covered in
the dew 
of morn
touching underneath
one's eyes

alone one soul
kissing upon 
the heart
of a rose
yet to bloom
crowning soft petals
love an emotion

i wove you a poem uncut

i had a dream and in the dream i wove you a poem
i used the fiber of my character to create spools of silken thread
dipped in the juices of my passion i dyed them in the colors of my imagination
and re-enforced each and every single strand with the strength of my love

spun the spools from the intricacy of my spirit
designed a pattern to the rhythm of the music of my inner thoughts

enamored in your vision
crystal beads gather on my brow
as i toil your finely bred gift
as i braid every part of me
with every memory
into every sliver of fabric

sew in the loving glow emits my flawless dreams
and with my boiling blood initial my woven piece

my work at an end i awake
you lay there a wingless angel 
smiling as if you heard a bell ring
your boundless warmth embraces me

without a touch 
with just a hint 
i kiss you
so not to disturb your sleep 
and whisper
 'thank you’

If Not For Love Then What


She could feel his heart beating against hers.
 Fueled by their love she drove a stretch of his fabric 
and consumed his breath as if it was hers.                                                                       As they continued to touch lips
she held on to him as one holds on to hope.


For his part and without reservation 
he believed that this union would last a lifetime 
and beyond if possible.He knew that he would hold on 
to this belief until his last moment.


As outsiders watching we felt their sincerity.
 We suddenly understood 'forever'. 
A sense of our existence, our purpose.
Love is all encompassing.
 In this case two destined lovers, lovers for life. 
Few experiences are more inspiring than that.

Ignoring Love

She loves to
ignore me.
Does she love me?
Yes I believe so, our love
is imperfect -like most, predicated on
imbalance, a victim of
poor timing, but living the old
lie of immortality… it really
an untruth?  Is it mortal?
Will it one day die?  I pray not.
At the end of all of it and everything
-it’s all I can give,
deathless love is rare, I have nothing
greater to offer, a love that will
outlive my life, outlive all things…..
I need to refocus, this doesn’t matter,
you see –she still ignores me.
I think she takes pleasure in it,
she does it so well.
Does she love me?
…..I think so, maybe

far away

coming out

with the sweetest
most beautiful words
a soul 
of such beauty

shining at
the rainbows end
my god
never let

tipping one's hat
i smile to you
if ever i did
i would adore

you hypnotize

melting in the deepest

one with yours
beyond words

crashing onto

kissing you passionately

Forbidden Fate

Every night I lay awake
I think about you all the same
Your eyes like stars
Your mind like mine
Your smile so gentle
I don't know why
I should have to suffer this
Pain of rejection that you give
Because you said one time
There was never a chance
Oh how I wish to hold your hand
And dance away the night alone
With you, my love
My hearts yours to own
Just say the word
I'll be there
I'll do my best to answer your prayers
I'll do my best to make you smile
Even if just for a while
I long to hold you so very close
And I shed a tear for this verse I wrote
Cause I know that we will never be
Together forever as I know we should be

answer love

Holding within 
the hands 
Bizarre feelings 
In a coil 
full of emotions 
In the nature 
Of it 
what would 
Shakespeare say 
Is it to be 
Or not to be 

In answer to 
A thousand questions 
Challenging within 
Wandering lonely 
In many's 
a town 

Dreaming in heather 
Lying on the hill 
Staring into clouds 
A host 
of silver stars 
One cross 
to bare 
Different shapes 
And forms 
Finding love 
is to be 

Into dark clouds 
Carrying feelings 
With us 
A soul speaks 
From hidden depths 
The black dragon 
Monster of 
The deep 
Fire scorching 
Within the chamber walls 
Burning deep 
not to be 

The present 
Of passed sins 
Bestowed on love 
Or not to love 
One question asked 
I arise 
to this almighty challenge 
Arise love 
Humbling word 
The soul 
Pulls all strings 

Heartbreaks easily 
Will love again 
When embers light 
A blazing inferno 
To be found 
In heaven 
Also hell

A Gamers Romance

I met a man on xbox,with whom I did play,
we killed zombies almost every day.
I liked his voice right from the start,
it set off a spark inside of my heart.
He's considerate and very kind, just the right sort,
the kind I don't mind.
He says things to me
I've not heard before,
the kind of stuff that I'd like to hear more.
He lives a couple of hours away from me
but we might meet up,I'll wait and see.
I like his accent and his voice,
in fact,it would be my accent of choice.
I think our accents are quite similar,
so it feels comfy to me,known,familiar.
He has asked me out,to a gig,
not a small one but one quite big.
The florist came with a beautiful bouquet,
the very best roses,I hasten to say.
He makes me laugh and he makes me smile,
feels like we've known each other for a while.
So could this man be right for me?
only time will tell,I'll wait and see.

souls connect

touching souls
in labored breath
finger caress
the cheek
smiling into
your beautiful eyes
running though
one's hair
fingertips of  emotion

falling to you
as you breathe
into the ear
crashing lips
tasting divine
sweet tasting honey
exploding feelings

as your fingers
play on the chest
coursing sensations
take one's 
breath away
as thighs embrace
the waist
these arms
fall around you

palms upon 
the back
as i hold you
touching hearts
you already do
to lay with emotion
upon the sand
underneath a moonlit sky
i kiss 
lips upon your hand
softly princess

dropping to 
the knees
kissing your feet
looking into your eyes
fluttering lashes
i see a star within
sparkling beautiful
it is then dreams
become reality
one dream
in the deepest ocean
comes true

Getting Serious

I wonder: 
Can I look into your eyes and mean it 
when I say that knowing you 
will make me never long for another?

Let me say (instead?): 
There is (with you) a greater degree 
of contentment and commitment 
than I have ever allowed or enjoyed.

I could say: 
My love for you is focused as logic, 
giddy as champagne, warm as a hot tub 
and bright and burning as a laser.

More honestly: 
The strain of love’s a medley of changes – 
no lullaby, but a rising, swelling dedication, 
that bridges to an unwavering march.

Surrounded by elaborate and colorful pageantry
that winds a route completely impromptu
for which we are totally unrehearsed,
our hearts, drumming within the cavalcade,
synchronize to the parade’s harmony,
while we hold each other in steadfast step.

A Night of Pure Love

Drooling for my luscious garden,
Your tongue licks
My sweet smelling mist.
Fingering my pink petals, 
I moan.
Whispering and screaming.
Drunk and delirious.
Raw from lust,
We lie together.
Lazy, languid, dreaming
Of days to come.

within one's eyes

rising from cold bones
breaking loose
from iron shackles
in foggy darkness
coming out
of twilight shadows
i saw you

eyes burning red
passion within
opened hands
in awe
held to the lips
beautiful soul
kneeling before you
a goddess
clad in sunlight

sparkling lady
the angels chant
sweet smelling skin
that of rosewood
a dancing soul
inner eye
glowing red
passion within

deep inner being 
lips they curl
pouting as if kissed
sweetly craving 
a yearning within
the deepest chamber
cradling you love
within a warm glow

as darkness
is washed away
they beg 
to kiss
lips moist 
upon your soul

floating feelings

flying high within
floating on
wings of love
beating on the walls
softly like those
fluttering wings
butterfly feelings
emotions kiss
when i laid
eyes on you

becoming one world
a dense fog lifts
an oasis
of paradise
drinking from
the cup
you became
my addiction

hooked like a fish
fighting this 
loving feeling
as the feet
landed on shore
hook line and sinker
you got me

walking the sands
of life
your hands
in mine
stepping into 
the setting sun
tonight we dine
awaiting morning
in a rising sun
eloping with you
to a golden paradise

awaking desires dream

at the sight
of his approach
But her instincts tell a different story

Why do such feelings
exist in a broken frame
opening the book 
of scrolls
Gallantly polishing armor
knees upon emotion
hands out
for a gesture

Her iridescent hands reach out to his
blowing blessings
to his soul
and his

Breathing your air
holding such beauty
existing in fairytales
Drawing the blade
defending one
a shining reflection
fair maiden

the clouds
a red thread
lining their souls
Maiden of the East chants a water spell

Becomes a quest
within dreams
embracing loves grail
Orbiting space feelings
looking into
the moon face
Stars sparkle 
winking at venus
so blessed
in inner beauty

Watchful spirits bless the brave and gentle
star-crossed distance

in a frozen moment
casting shadows
falling backwards
i lay myself
on the sands

warm in the hands
in the scent 
of ocean
staring into
the sky
romancing the stars
dream building
for love
a castle

voices whispering
in babbling water
to the shore
sounds of the sea
as the moon smiles

lights up deep
in a happy face
i embrace emotion
written in the stars
a twinkle
in the eye

lighting up a dream
as the sands
begin crumbling
lost in falling grains
an unheard 
crying voice

no one to share
as the wind 
the cold lips
i am gone
you never
saw me love

looking behind
i was long forgotten
out of love

kissed in the ocean

a white mist 
begins engulfing 
every breath 
eyes clouding 
deep inside 
the wrinkling sea
within begins
to crawl

fluttering waves
caresses softly
touching walls 
butterfly kissing
deeply speaking 
inwardly emotions 
tenderly cry out

blue awakening
senses floating 
a drifting heart
blossoms on
paradise shores

lightly colors emotion
a soulful tune
sings with music 
enchanting mist
magical feelings
sprinkled sweetly
falling sugar 
coats honey

moistly kissing
the most beautiful lips
tasting cherries
bursting desire
ever so deeply
drinking from 
the cup
of love

a dream horizon in a faraway land

That Girl I Love

Many people think that love is fake,
I'd beg to differ,
I know it is real,
When you finally find the right one,
You may always be in pain,
But look when you love someone you accept the pain,
That's what I've done for you Jennifer,
I've taken the pain,
And I've given it,
But the wait for you is worth it all,
Forever and ever more

purest light

a light shines inside
embracing wishes
i sail within feelings
opening the sails
emotions melting 
each time
closing these eyes
all i want
is you love

under this skin
crawls a dream
you and i
in paradise
as the moon 
peeps out
from dark clouds
floating past unveiling
a milky white smile

sparkling winks
lighting thousands
of stars
one bright star
shines the brightest
a distant dream
holds out hands
to Venus 

clouds cry 
weeping in happiness
falling emotion
sweet beautiful love
this world orbits
around feelings
circling you
softly in dreams
smiling inwardly
washing away darkness
light within

alighting warm

to know 
i see
the writings 
on the wall
a stepping stone 
in the right direction

as each stone 
comes tumbling down
you will begin 
to see me
as feelings grows
each stone 
warming in emotions
stumbles to the ground

in beautiful light
you enter 
my heart
forgiving the past 
letting you in
as within mends
beginning to get warmer
leaving the cold behind
i begin to see you

a light 
in the distance
with a glow 
warm and wanting
the loves 
back in my life
to sweep you 
off your feet

climbing over 
the wall 
like ivy
holding you 
a dream
an unbelievable

Skies and Sea

i raced through a thousand gardens 
picking out the weeds 
catching all the falling leaves 
making strides through grass and trees 
keeping going getting lost losing sleep 

i slept on a thousand mossy rocks 
waiting for you to come and race me to the end 
where the forest meets the road 
until you'd find me pulling ferns off their stems 
and then i'd pull at you. 

you crept through a thousand haunted faces in the crowd 
you watched them watching you 
while they were watching me 
i watched them too 
i listened for your eyes but it was too loud 

i found you under a thousand blazing stars 
staring me down straight to the gut 
crossing over from you to me, 
somewhere in between the skies and the sea 
you found me

Always, Almost, Here

Carve the face of the sleeping moon in a 
Pebble of bone and set it in silver,
Adorn another finger.
I see his soft, peaking profile when my
Hand lies where you should be.
An inward smile unfolds inside me and
Gently calls my eyes to close so I can
Imagine you, here, for a while.
Beneath my palm, the pillow is the
Velvet curve of the back of your head,
And the cold blue wall is the bricks of
Your back, where my kisses would fall
Between your blades.
I could lose a whole week to the sound
Of your laughter, that iridescent song which
Lingers in my hair like a perfume or spice.
I tell my ears I can hear the lyrical
Tide of your breathing, and I long to be
Drifting on those languid waves which
Soothe the shore.
I'm sure your love which lives in me
Recalls the very essence of you, mirrors
Each facet, so you're
When I put my mind to it.

A Grown And Sexy Lullaby

I can sing you a lullaby that could comatose an insomniac
Like the landing of a butterfly a rose would welcome this contact
My voice sprinkles her with relaxation the sandman could'nt match
Her eyes twinkle with admiration like birds when their eggs hatch

The soft aroma of vanilla intertwined with jasmine fills the air
A few coronas as a summers night wind blows through her hair
Time seems to stop as if a deity entered the scenario
Those eyelids drop as a cello escapes the stereo

Her pillow overjoyed exhaled feathers that would shame a peacock
A sparrow was deployed from heaven with such a divine restock
A sleeping beauty in a trance only broken by pure intentions
A dream with visions of romance she'll probably never mention.

My Sweet Camel Toe, Where'd you Go

Where'd you go?
oh where did you go
my precious camel toe?

played me like a fiddle
with your bubbly middle
you're such a skanky hoe
but I love you so
camel toe

we had magic
we had fire
purple sweatpants my desire
come back camel toe

victory! camel toe
you're the villain 
you're the winner
with your puffy 
wedgied center

you're my sassy hoe
you're my Christmas snow
gone like cold wind blows
with your return
my member grows

I miss my camel toe
where'd you go?

A Love Poem For You

love  and let 
love find you

See me without your eyes

See me without your eyes!


Beauty is in everything that I behold all around!

I am just lost! Tell me when you have me found!

You say someone is ugly, I will aver that's lovely!

Your senses are earthly, missing what's heavenly!

We are more than a body, mind, heart and soul!

Ignore what meets your eye! See me as a whole!

If you take me for how I look, you are not for me!

When I need you most as I age, your love will flee!

See me without your eyes, if you like what you see!

I will believe in you, each other's we're meant to be!

A message from across the pond

It felt like Christmas 
on that late September night 
in the airport waiting anxiously 
for you to step off the plane.

I'm still recalling 
that first time I saw your face 
and all the things you ever said, 
they still fill me full of life.

And I wonder why, 
as I close my eyes to sleep, I still
feel happy, though our love is
forced to wait.

So I say your name 
out loud for all the stars to hear 
and for the wind to whisper to you,
everything will be alright.

And I hear your voice
in the morning rays of sunshine
breaking through the night storm
giving me courage

to face another day 
of being parted, having to hold
our hearts at bay until the time
our promises are made

Chocolate Covered Cherries


Slowly tracing the milk chocolate softness, of her smooth velvet thighs

Lying upon her breast as she hugs gently, the pillow amid her sighs ~

Smiling in flavours of strawberries lingering, wetness; vanillas extract...

Facing the Moon

It is a beautiful sunset The dusk of night slowly enters This chilly winter night It’s not about seeing The moon rise splendid in the sky Like a light of love high above Shining warmth to the shivering bare branches Upon the first flakes of snow Tumbling to ground Inhaling the fragrance of fresh air all around Like a delicate scent lingering Her perfume captivates my desires Lingerie on the corner bedpost It’s not about seeing, or desire It’s about my heart longing For her eternal flame The cold winters nights Hide not the warmth Firewood glows, illuminating our night Her playful kisses Upon my cold open lips Make this a moonlight delight As I delve into her hips
Notes: I call this a Mirror poem based on the one done by Charmaine Chircop, and thus the inspiration for this poem! Her poem is called " FACING THE SUN "

Take me to the countryside

Take me to the countryside 
where all the daffodils grow
fresh perfume saturating the air
dispersing sensational aroma
in the atmosphere.
Take me to the countryside
to inhale the balmy fragrance
of mother earth,
to walk on grassy lands
and hold each other hands.
Take me to the countryside
to gaze at the swaying trees, 
and listen to them humming breathlessly 
 in the chilly breeze.
enchanting birds singing in the gusty afternoon,
dancing vigorously to their melodious  tune.
Take me to the countryside 
where all the natural things grow,
tangerine, oranges , banana and  kiwi fruit.
homemade yogurt ,sweet yam
and fresh milk from grandpa’s lamb.
Take me to the countryside
to coalesce with earthy peasants, 
to run up and down the cornfield 
and waddle through onion beds.
Soak me in nature, 
and replenish my aching soul
purge my agonizing wound,
and distill my sorrowful tune.
My soul yearns for spiritual fulfillment
to drown the chaos from the external environment,
mineral water and running streams,
strumming guitars and melodious flutes
are singing harmoniously,
and whispering the truth.
lead me to a place of comfort,
a place where I can breathe,
a place of beauty and incomparable dreams.
Take me to the countryside
to mingle with the animals,
to go horseback riding,
and camp on the mountain top.
Take me away from this hopelessness,
to a place of peace and quietness.
Take me away from this desolation
and find away to solve this confusion.
I want to be free,
free from this burden and misery,
so take me with you before you leave.
When I close my eyes and count to three
at the sound of the whistle
I charge you to set me free.

A seed of love planted in the soil of my heart

I sailed unaware into 
the ocean currents 
of her life:

smitten, I 
desired to ride 

them with her;
the ocean ways, a 

seed of love 

planted in the soil of
my heart had taken root 
and grew--only to perish 

a young hope 

that's fleeting:
though I loved her, 

still wounded

like a careless 

In spite of 
this and myself, 
I looked 

for encouragement
in her stare; 

at the outlines 
of her graceful 

I did wonder: 
she was 


a Helen of Troy, a prize, 
on whose loveliness 

so richly gorged! 

But never was 
a lonely man 
more wretched 

I was, 

as she could 
not return my

with equal measure of feeling.  

I would be more
glad had she been 
unwedded to another,

could easily be within 
my desirous 


In time, I 

her again;

and love, or the 
appearance of it--like 
an aborted 


flushed down the 

with her parting 
as well!

               awakes, striding seamlessly towards the
              trajectory of daybreak. Abed, passionately
                  attended by orectic thoughts; of whom
              early on was created from man’s thoracic cage.

      Without the least trace of compunction; exfoliating the 
    Saccharine damped canal with the tongue. Combined oils 
and aroma lingers on the lips. Though the stiffened, unbridled, 
      solid thick muscle would supersede the tongue as the
      warm tightened canal adjusts to its width inextricably.

                           Waterfalls pouring profusely
                               Eyes trudge backwards

Watching you

Your eyes never opened after that last long kiss

You pulled the dark curtain of sleep about you

Your body fitted against mine in perfect configuration

And your hand upon my arm about you

We always fitted well in all things

What was it that you said?

“Do you know why God put those spaces between your fingers?”

And when I shrugged, you fitted your fingers between mine.


Watching you alone with yourself within your slumber

I came to realize that love can only be appreciated

When we imagine what we would be without it

And in that moment of my pondering

I discovered many things.

Your touch was more profound than a million hands in applause

And touching toes to be sure you were there 

Was a communication far superior to internet


I determined then that a kiss was indeed a luxury

And a moonlight whisper has more power

Than all the chants of protest across the world

Walking hand-in-hand had far more meaning

Than any three car garage

And your head resting upon my shoulder

Lightened all the weights of a troublesome life

And without you life itself would fade into obscurity


The complexities of life never altered the simplicity of us

We drove 200 kilometers just to eat at The Fat Duck at Bray

We camped overnight in the ruins of the old Cathar castle

In the hills beyond Limoux where we found the cave 

And when your father welcomed us into his home

But commanded that I sleep in a separate room

You told him, “He is my life now, you must understand”

And we slept at the Albergo al Viale and drank wine at breakfast


And all the wonders of my life were there

Lost in that nocturnal womb where I could not go

And when moonlight filtered through the limbs of trees

And decided to dance upon your face

I also learned that God could promise me nothing more

For my salvation was beside me and the gates of heaven

Opened with your eyes of morning

And my soul would come home again for another day

Call her "Tempest", for hers are eyes of storm.
Winds of passions held at bay, a torrent of tears uncried,
fires bound in those confines yearn to flash unchained into the night;
and peace is seldom found behind the clouded walls in the eyes of storm.

Her face reveals no inference nor her manner does supply
the slightest indication of the tumult found inside.
Her twisted tresses hint with subtlety
the wants,
the needs,
the fears,
the hopes,
the sorrows 'neath veils of lashes bound.

A sharpened tongue and razor wit, iced cold with frigid stares
are evidence more of the battle fought within erstwhile founts of tears.

The clouds spiral ever faster and the waves mount higher still.
The tormentuous seas have victims claimed, for none have yet them tamed.
Within those eyes of Tempest rage the unsettled memories
of sailors many and those to whom the task proved beyond reach...
for yet has one to brave those eyes and weather well the gale...
to find the calm I know is there within the eyes of storm.

I thought once to be a face undaunted her winds and rain.
Methinks I once caught sight of sun amid her skies of darkened gray.
I know the calm is in the heart of this hurricane,
'though I doubt it is I who'll find the peace deep within the eyes of storm.

Yeah. call her "Tempest", call her "Storm" call her "Calamity",
but fear not the rain,
nor winds,
nor waves she'll hurl in direction thine,
For somewhere beyond her wall of clouds 
is Eden in the eyes of storm.

Take me to Duck Heaven

In that glistening azure pond
I had a favorite
A duck
I called

A quacker kind of 
Recognizable by the 
Atop her bobbing head
She swam aloof from
The rest

And refused all bread
Thrown her way
Even the finest bits
Collected from week old 
French bread

Leftovers from the
Down the road
The one managed by a
Kick boxer from the Bronx
The one that
Refused entry to
But kindly gave me
All the crusty crumbs I 
Could bag
For my 
Duck feeding 

And I am not embarrassed 
Not so macho
To say
I loved that duck
My Tawnablu
In ways I can never

But let me try
To put my affection
Into words

Just this once:

Tawnablu,  my pretty Canard
Quacking so hard
I want to ride your back
Down a stream 
Without end

Tawnablu, my epic Canard
Quacking so hard
Take me, wild beauty
All the way to 
Duck Heaven

Twilight Lovers

Lovers whispering in the softness of the night.
Two entwined hearts, 
misted in sweet promises.

Floating together in the warmth of love.
Embracing the other's soul, 
desiring each others hearts.
Lips touching, 
adding heat to the swirling mist around them.
Delicious heat only lovers can know.

The hot flames of lust, 
igniting their bodies, 
inflaming their hearts.
Passion carries them through the night.
Destined for all the tomorrows on the twilight together.

Silent, The Castle Doors


Stillness held the flower, in distant gazes spilling from their palms...

A cats meow, resounding atop timeless rafters; peering at the stage

About a sixteenth century romance; dramatica, close the castle door

Hush the crowd betwixt breath they keep; frozen in this their heart

As Juliet lifts her tearful blade and Romeo's love, now fast asleep; dreams

Not weep as time does part to gather once more; aneath these stars...

Some Fine Wine

As I sip,
A burning slithering between my throat and belly,
Thoughts whisper,
Wrapping themselves around the
Thumping heart.
No one        -nothing-
Can do that.

Yet it aches;
The burns surrounding
The pulsing flesh
Of my stomach.
Is it heated with desire?
Sometimes after, it can come to pass,
And I find my mind
Trudged in the darkness;
Slightly warped-
But still;
The individual remains.
And then, (perhaps)
Whatever it is 
That gives me reason to be more than just skin,
Is touched only slightly-
Like sand between toes,
Silk against cheek,

A burn in the belly-

And my mind tosses itself into a pit.

Rose Wine

Your strong hand 
beneath my head
my Love in your Blood
turned from friendship
did spread
into More
the first time you
took my Hand
and traveled every
line, of my Flesh land
the way you reflect your soul
Into my Eyes, 
makes me forget my small stature
shape, size
in this world
I wish to carry your 
future child
be it boy or girl
be them strong of spirit
Smarts of street and class
leaders of Eminence
Sweet mixed with Sass
I see this future
as I fall head first, spilling
into your secure embrace
like a single bottle of Rose Wine
Down to the last Taste

Within shivers
Hot like

Phantom yet
Passes her
So shyly
Dark tresses
Diamond like
Halls grow dark
Haunts her

Of tentatively
Walks within new 
Cursed within
Like shards pang
A lullaby 
I can
No longer
Hold her so
Yet so far

In Solo

A curious drop of orgone dusk; making way to peek amid the curtains...
Hush the breath rising in slivers of delight; a manifold cat crowing

With blood dripping from the vine; candlelight shadows and the clock chimes

Black rubies twined atop pentagon lines; vanilla incantations of silk desires

Parting red lips to stoke this fire; deep the moans bewitching cradle

Resting now the dawn which waits; within her arms love set ablaze... 

Nightfalls curious drop of time; beyound the curtains in that sublime

Whereupon her bosom it does lie; casting spells while taking tithes

In this my heart she surely knows; outside the window a proxic cat crows 
Aneath blood and blue rubies dripping from the vine; such silk incantations...

The seasons of us

when winter comes and skeletons of trees

stand starkly upon the snow

i will think of you

and your head on my lap before the fireplace

skating on the gaunt, deep pond 

where we made love on brighter days

hot chocolate and fired brandies

and standing at windows while flurries fell


when it is spring again and trees bear promises

as islands of snow die slowly in their shadows

i will think of you

when all was alive again and you believed in us

within the world of nest-making and streams going home

making bouquets of foothill flowers

constantly profaning the word “forever”

and imagining that winter was forever gone


when summer is upon me with sweltering wrath

i will come to the forest where we walked and

i will think of you

where we were prone beneath the well dressed limbs

in a canopy above us, fitted into one another like lovers

by the quarry lake where you were covered in beads of water

and the sun loved you and glistened upon your body

where i looked at you as one would view sunsets or miracles


autumn will come with all its dark omens and i will walk 

upon the crisp leaves made spectacular by death

and i will think of you

where the earth wore its gaudy colors while ours had faded

into the murky hues of uneasiness and fear

and soon the trees will awaken alone and naked to the world

and i will understand their plight in a box called home

where once laughter lived and life was wonderful


there was a time before seasons and sentiment

when small, gentle hands covered my eyes with giggles

and you gasped, “oh, i’m sorry!  i thought you were someone else!”

i smiled then and replied, “i am.”

it was the spring of us that led into the caldron of summer passion

before time and treasons took their toll

before reality and reason tore the glitter from our eyes

and our autumn came that condemned us to our winter

My Beloved

Hey Mr. Editor,
It's not very often we hear true stories of enduring Love that grows with time. I can 
hear the cynic groan as I write this, but it's a good human interest story and I 
thought a good one for the coming of spring, a time of new birth and new beginings. 
There is a couple who met while in school, years ago.  After graduation they both 
were seperated by thousands of miles; both got married to different people 
sometime later and raised their young families.  All this time their love remained 
silent, waiting, yet strong.  Today, their children are adults and about to venture on 
their own lives. Reconnected once more, perhaps by fate, they have planned to wed 
very soon.  I was asked by the Bride-to-be, a dear friend, to write a poem on her 
behalf which she would read to her Groom at their Wedding Ceremony. I was truly 
honored and graciously obliged. It's titled,"My Beloved.  Thank you for your 
consideration of my request.

My Beloved, Today, I can not say that dreams do not sprout wings! Nor will I ever accuse time of being an adversary Not when I know that within its grasp lies our past, present and future Today, my heart is full and overflowing with abundant joy! Gazing into your beautiful soul, I glimpse love’s sparkling reflection Streaming like a river, endless, into vast ocean tides And I stand in awe of God’s everlasting love and providence The sweetest portion of which we have come to taste! For so long I have waited! How I have yearned for this moment When I would pledge life and love to you; become one flesh, one heart! One heart that will bleed no more as nothing can stand between us I will lose myself in you and you in me forever! No longer will dreams haunt our lonely nights And I will not have to walk this side of Heaven without you When I consider the paths which we have traveled I marvel and smile, as now it is clear - they were leading us to, this day! In the silence of a thousand nights my prayers to heaven took flight And though seasons of yesterdays came only to fade away Time, it seemed, had shelved my fervent plea ‘Til sweet destiny obliged, leading me to the one who holds my heart My Beloved, my husband, my best friend, and companion, Our love has arrived; our single journey begins today!

Against the wall I was his devi
Pressed tight beside his soul
Skin so hot it burned through mine like a fever
Warming my muscles
Warming my pulse
Fueling my movement
Touching my body he was my sher
Braving my imperfections 
Lips so thirsty they tasted mine with frenzy
Spinning my thoughts
Spinning my surroundings
Driving my feelings
It was…
Underneath the materialistic piles
Cotton, polyester, and satin
He saw my secret nature
Underneath my pigmented eyes
Crushed Lala and gloomy brown
He saw my Élan vital
Underneath my damaged Pericardium
He found my beating heart.

Her Beauty, In My Dreams


The warmth of her breast weighing joyfully amid my palms...

Arms about my waist; smiling as gazing into her eyes to find this

Beauty that we share; butterflies dancing in my heart while chasing

A breath; nothing has changed yet all is the same and everyday, is new ~

Time stills its frame while untying her negligee; a mirrors image

Twined in this love as satin falls unto the floor; about these fragrant kisses

Capturing hearts aneath reflections cast betwixt, chains of silverish hues...

Rose petals strewn atop the scented pillows; insatiable to quench 

This candlelights thirst; a poetics witness unto, desirables rivers of pleasure ~

Murmuring lightly loves silkened voice into the wanting sea; her warmth

Weighing joyfully amid my palms; and her breast, thus now glistening...

Whispers upon a morning breeze

Whispers upon a morning breeze
gently caresses the awakening flowers
and leaves on the flourishing trees
just like a lovers warm soft tender touch
after a night of passion
and making love
now just smouldering embers
between two kindred hearts
who discovered the true meaning
of giving sharing and caring
and beauty
in the sanctity 
of sacred eternal love.

Love's Fashion Model

Darling, May i dress you
     In alphabetic Bytes that Mold
     and caress your Manly form?
     May  i drape you in a Fantasy
     made of Words and Nature's imagery?

We would wander thru a quiet cove
     where turtle doves could make a melody
     and i would find a sandy bank
     and weave myrtle leaves and flowers
     around your neck, into your hair.
     Around your waist I'll thread some tender vines
     strewn with apple blossoms sweet; 
     and with subtle sage plucked from the water's edge
     I'll dress your thighs and slender legs.
     Across your chest a sash of fiddle ferns
     will make your grab complete. 

And then I'll lie beside you in the quiet
     afternoon; the breeze will bless the stirring
     of our passion and the sun will keep us warm. 
     There the birds will be our serenade, the bubbling
     creek their instrument. And with myself...I'll cover
     you...where' ere the flowers have not done.

     May I drape you with a fantasy
     Made of words and nature's imagery.....
Darling....may I ...un-dress you....

Inside out beauty

Hi princess sparkling treasure
always touching forever beautiful 
hearing from you a song sings 

Thinking of you all the time dreaming
each message looking upon your crowning beauty 
Tonight I smiled looking into a pearly white moon face

Full dreams around you darling
picture perfect in my mind
I will with love, open my heart and soul to you

When darling your arrow pierced the heart 
Cupid you play with all strings 
picture shining out from the dark 

A Hollywood  star in my eyes 
with your smile feelings of being touched 
by wings of an angel warm

Purest lady of light smiling 
diamond cut gem
as you bowl me over in heartbeats

Give Me Back My Shirt

You stole my shirt again
The one with stains
Beneath my armpits

You lied and said 
The shirt somehow fell 
Into your suitcase

A dark black shadow 
That hurled itself off a cliff
And landed inside your
Sad blonde soul

And when you sleep alone at night
In the naked stretch of your wine-soaked skin

Do you smell my harsh manly aroma
In the pillow of your theft?

Do you wet yourself in the taste of 
The baby felons we might make?

Do you imagine yourself wearing 
My body
Upon the sharp thrusts of my 

For a liar, a thief, a fetishist for 
That revives memories 
Of lust long faded

You stole my shirt again
The one  that has faint traces
Of your drool, in the way you 
Drip yourself upon me 
In the hot slumber of your 
Babbling incoherent dreams

Give me back my shirt
It was a present from my sister
Who rarely bought me anything
Except for a blue cotton candy 
Vivid blue
Like your icy sullen eyes 
In the childhood 
Of my lonely

Frog croaking

Sitting on his little lily leaf feeling alone
legs dangling over the side wishing
scratching his head top for that magic
with his tiny webbed fingers frowns
missing something above smiling
Hair brained every single second sparks
electric thoughts in warm glowing joy
through the sunlight beams happiness
Dew shining in your jewels
sparkling magic visions enchants
a blossoming dream begging that kiss
The eyes popping out
gasping awaiting his summer sun
arriving a gem sparkling awe all over beauty
Golden wonder whisked away this heart
our souls when joined sang sweetest music
all honor and love bows in bliss
sunlight your colors utopia rainbow inside dreams
In a chariot within your light
bathing in the sweetest senses
Lips off a spirit flies with the butterflies
dancing within your beauty 
shining one amazing treasure princess
I want to runaway elope with you
dancing with you a ball within dreams

i will forget you

just as i have forgotten my first kiss

and third grade teacher

you will be forgotten

and sent into the backyard of my mind

and forbidden to return


i will turn away from the push cart

with purple asters 

and ignore gazebos and river walks

i will not go where people mingle in twos

and where apple blossoms touch the air

i will be too busy forgetting you


nothing will be related to you

not the key hook you forced into the wall

or the tablecloth you scorched

because you turned for a kiss

everything will be what it is

without a remnant of what was you


i will forget you

even when dreams resurrect us

and you take vengeance in your absence

i was forgetting you with another

but saw the baby robin peak from its nest

and excitedly said, “carol, look!”


i will forget you

through every temptation and hint

daisy fields and haystacks

the first green suggestion of spring

you returning to bed for “just a minute”

i will forget you


but not just now

The field

Soft breath winds crossed the field

Wildflowers bending in its reverence

Cottoned clouds in their endless journey

While the brook chattered over rocks

It was a secret place

Discovered on a Sunday walk

And later our place for picnics and passion

In the warm days of spring and new beginnings


Carrion crows gossiped from the stand of pines

Tall grasses hissed around the breeze

From somewhere a ewe called for a lamb

And the sun was gentle and generous

You would be there, on your back, eyes upward

Smiling at all that was 

Wishing that every day could be so wondrous

Until the splendor brought your tears of elation


And there was me . . . . sole witness of true grandeur

Found within the curve of your lip or winsome half smile

You were more glorious than the boastful clouds

More radiant than the sun against the brook stones

Far more gentle and fulfilling than the calming breeze

More easily loved than all of creation

For as the earth will one day consume me

So did you so long ago

I tried to embrace you
as a steep descent of a river
with an array of steps
and you only sprinkled lightly on me.
But I was wet all over
enjoying your warm impact
before you became cold in plains.
White as the snow of
a single night.
Your eyes black as 
moonless night
your lips red as 
the berries of the rowan tree.
Your body soft as the foam of a wave
Chaste, clean and sweet as
a river- a jet of water emanating
From your lips.
Lest I remain adrift
To kiss those inviting lips.
Before you become a cataract,
with strong currents and deep holes
Or may later become *Sete Quedos
of turbulent power but beautiful.

I Will Not Understand

The ocean sparkles
in the morning light.
We sip hot coffee;
you cough, turn your head.
Eyes say more than words.
Ties connecting us
dissipate in sunshine.
Waves which wash ashore,
this white-flecked water,
underscore your silence.
Last night, in humid darkness,
velvet-feeling black, we joined --
made pacts that daylight violates.
I will not understand your shame.
You will not see my heart-hurt face,
nor will you long remember
my already half-forgotten name.

Royal Highness

Love to dance with your mind 
then as the curtains raise open 
I give to you batting lids 
this singing note raising tunes 
in the highest places 

Land of forever young 
so wild and carefree 
where the butterflies they float in vision 
in a galaxy one million miles away 
your in my soul's quarters 

Offering this sacrifice 
silently blowing a gentle hum 
on sugar coated echoes 
inside angel whispers 
silver coating clouds within thoughts 
lined with you beautiful 

In the shadows one savors your light 
seagulls cries mixing with great ocean waves 
hauntingly calls on the magic inside lapping 
treading onto deep sands 
enchanting every single thought 
Rippling reflections of a warm sun 
gentle with her rays dancing on air 

Pushing out this boat 
raising destiny's sails 
Forever shining regal 
glows warm always on the golden sands 
inside paradise one dream 
crowning you the hearts champion

My 3AM Wake Up Call

You’re a 3AM
Wake up call
With another sob story
About the latest boy 
Who pumped you
Then dumped you
And left you 
In a sweaty lonely pile
Upon another 
Empty bed

And you cry 
Baby girl tears 
All over my phone
And you wonder why handsome
With shining white  teeth
With full heads of curly black hair
With six-pack stomachs
And  tight muscular
Rear ends 
Can not be more like 

“Just like you,” 
Baby girl says
“Just like you.”

And you cry 
Baby girl tears 
All over my phone
And you wonder why reckless
Who party all night
Who down countless vodka shots
Who shout “muthafukka,” “dude,” "beotch,"
And other raucous
Victory chants
Can not be more like

“Just like you,” 
Baby girl says
“Just like you.”

You want me to empathize
You want me to criticize
The nasty boys 
Who took you for another 
Cruel and pointless ride

You want me to father you 
In a way he never did

But I’m sorry
Baby girl
I’m sorry

I can’t

Because I admire and envy those 
In the prime of their life
Not yet defeated
Not yet haunted
Not yet beaten 
By the disappointments that

They are a national treasure
A precious resource

From the exuberant crude shouts of
Irrational wild boys
Come the builders of shelter
The providers of sustenance
The conquerors of enemies
The explorers of frontiers

From the exuberant crude shouts of
Irrational boys
Come the daring adventurers
The first one into the burning house
The last one out of the burning house
The one still standing when everybody else

From the insatiable loins of such
Irrational wild boys
Come the fierce wild girls
Who dance insanely upon tables
Who run naked through the streets
Who make love without limits
In open fields
Upon damp grass
All through the night

From the insatiable loins  of such
Irrational wild boys
Come the fierce wild girls
Who cat-fight for their lover
Who kill for their children
Who wail passionately for their dead

From such boys
Baby girl
From such boys

You were born into the world

My crazy baby girl
You were born into the world
Like father, like daughter

And if I could be that young wild boy 
The one that you hate
And love
In such a maniacal way

It would be an honor to be with you

An honor to hold you
An honor to love you

Until my dying day.

My Beautiful One

You’re an enduring eclipse of quotidian winsomeness, 
Existing in front of all others, compelling the aforesaid into your shadow: 
My Beautiful One… 
Surpassing their talent for beauty, 
By allowing the world to witness your gift for it: 
My Beautiful One… 

Rejuvenating a word once relegated to becoming depthless, 
Its affects near fleeting, Beautiful showed few signs of standing peerless as it once did, 
Though within your presence, Beautiful is brought back to its quintessence, to its inception, 
Shown the miracle it was conceived in, you’ve promoted its ordinance even over that of the beholder’s vision: 
My Beautiful One… 

In your arms, embosomed by you, Beautiful is free from its superficial cellar, 
No longer just vernacular, the “B” word for pretty, or merely our lexicon’s adornment. 
No, My Beautiful One… 
In your face, Beautiful finally returns nature’s true reflection, 
Your facial features burn incandescently and uncontrollably, fueled by a lifetime of beauty all in one place. 
My Beautiful One anoints Beautiful with her grace, returning its virtue, 
Granting it renewed potency…thought lost for always…

No More Breakfast

I gave up breakfast
Not because I needed
To lose girth
Nor any extra

Nor because the time wasted
In feeding
Could have been better 
To solve the problems of the

Not because the eggs 
Are high cholesterol
And the chicken sausage
Created from
Hapless victims in their 
Sharp metal cages
Who never knew a
Better life

I gave up breakfast
Not because 
I hold any grudge
Against sunny beaming faces
Babbling cheery “g’morning” 
In the dark  demented winter of 
An empire in decline

Nor because 
The aroma of fresh cooked
Serves up wistful memories of 
Childhood innocence 
Raped by the scam of
And insatiable adult

Not because the grapefruit
Citric acid 
Contributes to gout
That precipitates
Kidney stones
And leaves  a grown man
Crying in a simulacrum of 
Childbirth pain

Not because
Nor because

No more need for morning meals
When your awakening kisses are 
For my soul

And your warm perfume
Sprayed upon my lips
Transcends any butter roll

No more need for a morning beverage
Nothing orange, tomato, nor lemon

And your golden breasts are my 
Made from flesh
Made from Heaven 

I've got all of you in the morning
It’s a feast of your skin and hair
And the breath of your love 
In my open mouth
And the taste of your love
In my open mouth
No croissant could ever compare.

I gave up breakfast
To make love

A Curly Kind of Love

Straightening her 
Tangled blonde hair

Taming her
Golden locks

In front of a

That lied 
And lied again
About her

Don’t you know

When I play with them at


Wrapped round my fingers
Feeling your original curly sin

Those curls are a pleasure
My curly friend?

As they tickle my 
In their

Proper blonde
Into a wild naked disarray
Curls and more
A field of windswept

I want to bury my nostrils
Into the heady bare

A Miracle Angel

I love the sweet thought of your arms 
softly circling around 
the neck touching deep
Looking into your eyes jewels
shines inside this mind

You're the sunshine 
golden enchanting dewdrops
awakening with each new day 
Melting warmly milk and honey
together is so sweet to the tongue
So are the words of endearment
to the heart gently sings sweetly
melting beautiful warm honey 
drunken inside golden mead
kissing your beauty love 
when the coins fell into place 
One beholding joy 
happiness a jackpot treasure forever
will shine all over you always 

If only I could appear lost 
found within your dreams 
needing you my love 
Like the air one breathes 
gasping hot finding paradise 
with you who gave me wings to fly

Have you ever danced with yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
Somehow, it just felt right,
Although it was dark and it was late.

I checked the weather forecast of my heart
And the climate of my soul marks: “Happiness”,
An unbelievable sense of joyfulness
That will stay within me, even if we are apart.

Because we were made for each other,
“apart” simply means “I’ll be right back”.
It’d be silly to turn our backs
On this great combination of lovers.

Lovers in love, now and forever.
Sharing dreams and goals that we know will come true,
Since anything is possible if I am with you,
Sharing a life in which fate brought us together.

Have you ever smiled at yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
And it feels perfectly right
To be yours and to enjoy being under your spell.

(What I’m really saying is: I’m in love…
 What I’m really saying is: I love you.)

On meeting most beautiful

On meeting most beautiful 
adoring maiden kisses in thoughts
Deeply inhaling one warm 
breath a sip off the finest old grog
auld mountain dew breathing pure
Golden leaves sweetly float dancing twirl
Shining inside vision sweet
walking hand in hand on golden sands
waves unfold a carpet blue 
to white ebbing thoughts pure crashing love
Against the deepest walls warm
soft light silent echoes whisper true 
sweetly melting emotions 
Brewing kisses clouds peach fading out
to shades of grey tuning kiss
Silver treasuring thoughts I love you
peachy beautiful dream gem
dancing petal flowers one red rose
I have visions of you dancing in my
dreams as I sleep most wonderfully
on soft clouds in the azure sky
At times I gaze skyward on days
bright and beautiful seeing your
face in the sky and feeling always
your most wonderful presence
like texture and scent of most 
sensual red rose petals gently
landing on the sweet dew ground
On meeting you most beautiful
maiden my thoughts always turn
most instantly to love and happiness
with my emotions and my soul on
fire in storms of unbridled passion and
pleasure I can only say I love you
forever and forever

The Most Beautiful Scent

The most beautiful scent I can imagine is you
L'odeur la plus belle que je peux imaginer vous est.

I breathe the scent of your body 
Inhale, the scent excites my senses
Exhale, in anticipation of my next breath

I breathe the scent of your body
Your scent is born of passion
Its purpose is to ignite

The bouquet is unmistakably yours
I recognize this scent anywhere
Blindfolded in a crowded room

It is a scent that only I detect
It is a scent that drives me
It is you. It is beautiful

And long after you have left 
I breathe your lingering scent on my body
I breathe your lingering scent on my pillow
I breathe your lingering scent on my lips

Song Cry

A song of a blind bird,
stale and cry.
hymn of a song in hormony to fly by,
is sure to set  feet.

Note by dexter fold arms to sheeps,
foil and cope,
with the mild do throttles to thirst,

like symantec of dirtection,
as the heaven snips to the moon rites of memories,
learning time motion of tears,
my heart flirts with literature ,
like hope to a good well.

note of notice,
just luck of verbal communication,
to conscience of intelligence of just words,
and tone turn to lust,
and lust turn to light moods,
where did i leave my capitavite?
in this room.

like a flower to dawn,
we rise together, 
morning to sweep of shore,
like a pastor store in barrels, 
for the fruit of yesterday to pour,
for todays taste ,
of years to past,
of course it was a good year.

like tinkle bell to a warm  berry,
my wish is sit next to you.
to reach is to bring towards,
 to be patient is to remain of stone.

i'm pasting my self with this meal.
to bring friendship to a new conclusion.
will you sit eat with me and bring in the New Year.
or will be know as our anniversary a reason to write.
I mean a reason to continue to write was left to be written!!!

Two Hearts full of Love

I am a heart full of love
that shook the pilars that held her colussium up
her heart filled with sorrow,
I swing such fury toward her heart and soul
she cowards away from me,
in fear of falling in love and not knowing what is in black
and not searching what is in the light of pure white.

I am a heart full of love,
she runs and takes the long dirt road,
through the raging mountains of the quiet countryside,
as the meadows of lilacs slowly die when Spring comes,
the blooming of the rose,
like the blooming of my heart,
a blossom on a cherry tree fall and harbour in the wintertime.
I swing toward her, she falls in fear of wanting attention and love.
Lost in the midnight twilight,
the flaming torch guides her through the dark holes of meaningless souls.
and like a frightened hummingbird,
she flees away from the secrets of falling in love.

A heart full of love ready to love,
it is diffcult to feel and to show,
but as if a rose that blooms in Springtime
my love is ready to bloom.

Pettles lay along a darkened atmosphere
lit up only with four wax candles
a portrait of a woman hung over a mantel piece
in honour of my one true love.

As the twilight shine though my bedroom window,
I show a heart full of love,
to take and to hold for eternity.

And as she slowly moves forward,
she takes me home with her,
and opens her chest and shows me her heart
with a glass of red wine and charming cigarette.
She sheads tears of pain and sorrow on my broud shoulder,
I curise her hair, silk laced hair,
shining against the twilight and the moonlit sky.

My heart full of love,
so divine, so original
a one of a kind.

We make love in the midst of the twilight,
as my dream girl is now reality and my pain is no more,
her pain is no more.
Too show such love makes a man feel free
and his soul lighter.
She holds him there,
as the sun rises over the mountains.
The birds sing a tune of cheerfulness,
and they talk about everything beautiful and kind,
that is still left in this cruel and empty hearted world.

Romance and love shared
with a heart full of love,
smile and kiss upon smooth lips,
feel me against your tight body,
and love me till the morning
when Blue eyed Death is staring us in the face.
and we go with him,
and play a game of risk,
and together forever,
onto a diffrent world
we shall love each other forever,
for you and I both have a heart full of love.

Never Enough

I always love more,
and it kills me in the end.
I always give more than I receive
even though I cherish each smile like it alone
was responsible for moving the world,
it was never enough 
and I was never enough,
but we both knew the teams weren't quite even
and each was playing by a different set of rules.
So I gave you all I had and
took out a loan to give you more-
leaving my heart hungry so I could make sure
there was always enough to fill yours-
and you gave me what you had 
and I cherished each glance like it kept the oceans churning.
I pawned my soul and shed my skin-
leaving my bones cold and aching-
so yours would never feel hollow.
And I gave you everything I had
and loved you with all my strength
until my heart gave out-
and yet I still managed a few more beats
for good measure-
And you gave me what you could but
it wasn't enough
and still I cherished each ounce of your love
like it was the last breath ghosting across my lips
in one final offering to you-
"I love you."

Consumer Complaint

Stop resenting me
For the way I shop
The things I do 
To make sure 
My  food is fresh

I confess I feel blueberries
In my fingers
To make sure they are firm
Not too ripe

I confess I shake 
Cans of spaghetti and ravioli
So that I know 
The sauce is not 

I confess I pull  frozen waffles
From the back of the freezer
Less likely that they thawed
And refroze into 
Oddball shapes

I confess I smell trout
Before I buy it
Placing it against my nose
In the most unabashed 

Spare me your hate 
About my consumer habits
When I know it has nothing to do with

As long as I bring you warm release
In the darkness of your desires
Pull your tangled hair the way 
You like 
Bite your darting tongue 
In mad hunger 
Deep appetite

As long as I reawaken the 
Primal animal hidden 
Turn your heat into a river
For a long passionate

As long as I attend quickly to your
Every lusty command
The craving of your nympho

Then  I can squeeze french bread
In quiet and peace
I can sniff cantaloupes
Without suffering ire 
Or grief

I’ll take you tonight 
In that filthy way 
You like

Until then

Leave me alone 

I’m shopping.

I love you
By Lawrence M. Nunez

The first time I saw you,
 I remember the day,
Seem like just yesterday.
a bounce in your step,
A smile on your face, 
a twinkle in your eyes.
Without a word, 
You said I love you.

The first time I met you,
I remember the day,
Seem like just yesterday.
Introduced by a friend,
a warm embrace,
a gentle squeeze.
I was way too nervous 
To say then I love you.

The first time we kissed,
I remember the day,
Seem like just yesterday.
You held my hand,
I looked into your eyes,
Without a cue I stole a kiss.
Right then and there I knew,
I had to say baby I love you.

But keeps it to "Goodnight."
Because love would mean some falling,
and she's afraid of heights.

Radiant in soft glowing skins perfection unto, allurings wishful eyes


All whom have been so enchanted in their knowing; desiring her silkened touch...


She my twin sister although one would rarely guess given, my long golden hair 


Emerald eyes yet, both, gifted in the physique of a goddess; bequeathed at our birth *


Sharing a lifes delicious common interest in this our love for, beautiful girls ~


Candles aligning the walkway as gently she takes my hand; paradises passage


Hourglass desires within a rose petaled fragrant bath; laced, amid vintage red wine... 


Waiting in this their loveliness, the joy of our arrival; these, maidens of our craving


Fondling and playfully enjoying one anothers beauty, as dreaming, of our love ~

Cheese monster

I remember 
dancing for joy 
Sitting on an open shelf 
This beautiful maiden 
Strolls into the shop 
As my eyes whistled 
She picked me up 

Holding me in her hands 
Smiling down at me 
Oh I love 
Words had trembling effect 
with this cheese 

Taking me home 
You took a little bite 
A little taste
Out of me 
Lips softly grin
bursts in flavour 
Almost cheesy 
Licking delicious 

Opening a door 
You placed me 
on top shelf 
Felt like royalty 
Lights out wow 

The last face 
I remembered 
Ever so beautiful 
Weeks pass 
Feeling almost 
out of date 
Left in the dark 

A smell started 
in fungus hair 
Taking over 
almost septic 
Crawling green 
in mildew 

Beautiful maiden 
Awaiting you in dreams 
You open the door 
Squealing out 
in the fridge 

All I done 
was shout cheese 
Smile darling 
I am 
all yours 
Sweet love 

Thrown in a bag 
Broken hearted 
with the rubbish 
That's me done 
With cheese 

It was so sad 
The green hairy 
old monster 
Began crying 
Now smile 
for cheese 

As you will not like 
To see the ugly side 
Of the green 
hairy old 
Cheese monster

Let Me Come Over

Oh, baby, let me come over 
I could show you  a world
We could both fade into
Show you things like nobody else could

We could roll the dice and play all day
Fly past the angels and ride the rainbows

Come walk with me through the raindrops 
Let the sparks fly where they may 
As we walk through the sunsets together  
It's all I wanna do with you 

Yes I think we could try 
Learn to fly ~ come be with me 
Because I really need you now
I wanna hold your hand 

I wanna make you feel wanted 
Wrap me up in your love 
We could fly so high, where 
Angels touch the sky 

I just want to feel wanted 
Let me be the one you run to
I feel you on the edge of my fingers 
Tell me, are you really there

Should I know better then 
to call you out like I do 
I don't mean no disrespect now 
I just want to keep coming around

Was I Dreaming

Hell when the wind blows over
howling fiercely cold in different voices
twisting inside the whistling tunes in torment
One from a past long buried a ghost appears
wishing in beats of hail reliving the past darkness

Then the thunder roars reality
as the lightning lights up a December night sky
flashing inner vision my coming fate awaits 
such pains returned the awful nightmare awakens
looking up such sadness gripping the heartache
small crystal balls sparkling rain down

Alone I light my candle wishing 
black a ring around the wrists 
I tighten steel begin to pray to God
within the pain of swelling wrists
smiling feeling peace in innocence 

Tears fall in such shattered dreams
with a promise full of happiness love 
As you began to know me 
I felt our future bright together
golden sands our spirits and souls danced 
Into the realms within a fortress crowing queen
we both wished that day to stay here together forever

I wake on the sand
Right near the beach
You have yet to awake
Far out of reach
And Daybreak has arrived
A beauty unlike any other
Comparable only to us, girl
And how we love each other

So I gaze up alone
Marveling up at the sky
The warmth of the sun
Drying my eyes
I'm reflecting on us
Oh how each other we trust
I'm just so happy we're together
And I think to myself,
Just as this sun, we'll last forever

Then returning to be with you
I lay again now
Place my hand gently
On your warm tender shoulder
While I think of our lives today, love
And how they'll be when we're older...
I know there'd be no other way
So "I Love You" I make sure I say
To you, each and everyday

Little Symbol Checker

Keen amoungst the lore lays symbols laden with, inmeshed. The lines collasece, they weave and dress, and form assembles we attest. Now best, we seek, through learning eyes, the ever changing shape's surprise, to thrive and die, the feast of pies, the ripe enchanted taste of fries. Sweet potato, no doubt. Least you a lout... And the list goes on, endlessly. The step and pop of rhythm's grace, astounding taps to set the pace... And chase, the spin, the grip, release.. The shapes and sounds abound with fate. And all the while our times compress. the heart beat sets the pace in chest. the breath goes on without our mind. Leaving behind... Leaving behind... That once-born dream. The sun explodes... what but love could derive a meaning from that event?

Ice Cubes

I stole you
in that morning breeze

Sip of that freeze sip 
You hold my crown

My vision is shaken
I am taken
Yes No I am heartbroken
My eyes were overtaken 

Binoculars were my four cousins
In all seasons
In all exclusive reasons
I was puzzled

Puzzled between giggles tripled by the thought of your sizzles 
Sprinkles of your four packed dimples
Your figure figures reasons of male gaze figures of speech. 

Nka fo motshwara nje, u zo zwa bathi

Thoughts printing words 
Followed by definitions of your sizzles

Let me dance your ice to melt away the coldness 

You don't belong in the fridge ice block 
Your eyes are sweating tears 
My arms are the warmest

Let me hide you in her belly
Run you down her salty thighs
Melt in slow motion to the motherland

I stole you 
in that morning breeze

Everything for you

Everything for you

I fought the world for you
She wrote poetry for you
I tried to sing for you
I was happy for you

Structure exclusively for you
Declared my love for you
Patient too much for you
I love roses for you

Planted trees for you
Night stayed up for you
I read books for you
And I'll die for you

Cloud Nine

When you touched me, sparks ignited love 
holding hands, everything shone perfect 
through your hair, golden shining halo 
Appearing most beautiful angel 
that ever held this vision, in front 
of these eyes, melting snowflakes 
Through windows, one gem whom shines 
with a shimmering sweet hum 
lighting the golden pathway 
on shores together we babe 
walked hand in hand as one 
United our spirits sang 
floated with the souls, danced a couple 
Watching you care free so beautiful 
waving your arms, sweet through these eyes crowned
Rising the soul in gentle heartbeats  
Loving you in blue clouds, white fluffy

Love Poem Number 2

The first time I glimpsed your beautiful smile,
I couldn’t believe you were real, my ideal!
Your beauty captured my attention and soul ,
I could sense it immediately, you make me whole.
Now the distance between us and every moment apart,
is so painful and sad, it blackens my heart.
For you, my heart longs, your gentle, kind touch,
Your smiles, your pure love, its all just too much,
For my lonely sad soul to be far apart,
I crave you, I need you, you are my sweetheart!
Now that you have come into my black and white world,
Color abounds, and rainbows unfurled.
A new joy in my heart, for love once again I am filled,
A new hope, a new faith, happiness re-instilled.
You are my true joy, and hope for forever,
Im thankful for you and Im glad were together.

These were all former PIMs -- "poetry in motion" entries

desert stillness shrouds
their adversary lairs
twilight's muted thunder
betrays the nearby
stealthy moon

pale gold ribbons
fiery soft skies
sea haze streaks a thin mountain path
as day begins

kitchen pans, pity, pungent cheese
and garden lace -- the matriarch
dripping decay
with her mild gentility

winter snow, ice
slow spring melt
rain-drowned torrent ocean bound flow
placid river drift
debris of desire

drifting memories
of lakes
water lapping against land
heartbeats floating on the breeze
the water reflects your face
look away

the chalky moon
creases midnight clouds
blue shades of lovers
walk a powdery sky
chortle at the other's close proximity

Tell Me Why


Tell me why?
Tell me why?
Tell me why?

Was it, because I was too nice,
I was too much of a gentleman,
or was just too much to handle?

Was it, because you were young?
Was it, because you couldn't find your heart,
in all that darkness?
Was it, because you just didn't feel the love?

Why me?
A man like me, deserves no pain,
no heartbreak.
So, why me?

I pray and ask the Gods,
But an unresponsive god never speaks to me.
He sits there and watches... watching what?
Nothing, but a heart being torn to shreds.

Was it, because I was too careful?
Was it, because I loved too much?
Was it, because one half of the heart couldn't fit the whole?

I ask you, because I still love you.
Come to me, my beautiful,
stop this nonsense,
I cannot make you love me,
but I sure can try to show you love.

Do not blink,
do not take a gift sent down from the Gods
for granted.
Appriciate what you have,
appriciate me, because one day,
when you need a shoulder to cry one,
you will not be able to find me, anywhere.
I will be lost,
in a fool's dream of romance and love,
that will never come on my front doorstep.
Still dreaming of the possibilities of you and I.
My heart is with you always,
but I will soon expire,
so do not wait too long.

Secrets Men Share About Women

I will tell you deep dark secrets
That only men share
In private conversations
Where no flower is allowed
To bloom

A woman can be like a video game
Makes us feel like boys again
Yet we sweat and toil 
Huff and puff
A man’s work 
Dedicated to scoring points
Until we hear her 

A woman can be like a  lawnmower
Fill her up 
With the sweetest oil
Grasp that fragrant hair
Tightly in hand
Pull her forward
In a rough yet tender way
Until a lingering kiss 
Ignites her motor
Rewards us with
Those powerful 
Lets us know
“Job well done.”

A woman can be like a roller coaster
Ride her up
Ride her down
Wild excitement 
Abject fear
The perverse delight in
Wondering if we will 
The  perilous journey 
Or be
From the track

And my woman
My love 
Washes me  in her
Most private
Perfume sins
Whispers obscene 
In harsh gasps
Hot breath bullets 
That shatter my brain
Is a living contradiction
Bringing obedient 
To share our love
Primal desires unleashed
In communal ways
That would  have made 
Karl Marx 
Renounce his creed

My woman can be like a fountain
A watery refuge from 
The steamy oppressive night
Hit the right switch
And she’s a squirting delight
Close your eyes
And you can almost hear
Dancing music 
Synchronized to 
The contractions and expansions 
Of her gushing love
Resuscitates your 
Weary body
Heals your tormented soul
Bathes you in the 
All that is good
All that has any meaning 
In this

There's Not Much More to Say

Now night hangs heavy
over me.

And meanwhile,
I am alone.
Lost in the past.

Why do I stare at you, in my mind,
with your dark eyes living velvet
in which I lose myself?
My fate's contained in yours.

Let us be extremely frank
and speak the truth about ourselves --
share our anxieties together --
discuss between us what sort
we can't be any longer,what sort
we now desire to be.

Fallen out of love with self-conceit
we shall not regret the loss.

They stand before me in uniform columns

A mixture of snapshots and Polaroids 

As testimony to the time of us

Each is a witness to a moment that was

When I clicked you into permanence

And sanctified an instant never to be denied

There is the shaded image of you asleep

Your hand resting easily on the pillow

And I remember wondering where you had gone

In the passage through your dreaming


You are there with funny face and clownish pose

Sitting pensive and aloof beside the River Po

Lifting a toast, as if to us and all tomorrows

Somber and dejected on the day the canary died

You are there, made as forever as a statue

Immortal upon flexible plastic

And indelible upon my memories, you are there

Each photo a recollection, like ashes of reality

Engraved upon my soul in kisses and promises

You are there because I am your inheritance to you

Wishing Well Emotions

Wishing well of dreams
You Illuminate colours
Whom Impacted the heart and Soul
Regardless of the outcome
My little Orchid
With your velvet frilled lips
Touching soft petals
Fresh kissing air your beautiful scent
Rippling Inside a hair breath
Warmly whispering with the ghosts
Completely lost In Love
Hurry because the cave man
Will awaken from his cold winter sleep
As the frozen tears of sadness drift across oceans
Indian ocean of dreams regrets
In colours of dripping tears
Memories come to haunt heart and Soul
Let come what may my mermaid beauty
My Love maid of the moon weeping silver tears
In beauty's moon before Taj Mahal
In sorrow a mermaid tear stained face
Long dark waterfall a shaking comb runs through
My heart breaks at sight of tears In beauty's eyes
My Indian Madonna weep not enough my tears be shed
An Indian Orchid In heart of Soul's anguish
A siren song forever sings sorrow's heart
My sorrow runs forever to you a river wide
Your mermaid heart feels the song of my storm laden Soul
My heart now lost within a wishing well of dreams

Falling In Like

I love it when you hold me close, and always want to play.
How in the morning you message me; on every single day.
When you call me every night, before I close my eyes-
Or always tell the truth; never any lies. 

When I get to see your passion with every story that you tell,
How even when you’re angry, those feelings never dwell. 
I love that you protect me, from everything around;
That even when I’m lost, I know that I’ll get found. 

I love that whenever you start to drive, you make me kiss your cheek.
How my stomach gets butterflies with each sweet word you speak.
That you cuddle me for a moment and then turn on your side,
That all of your accomplishments and family give you pride. 

I love that you support every decision that I make,
That even if you’re embarrassed of things- you’ve never acted fake.
How you always want me to be happy, no matter how I feel.
That even when we make things up- it’s never been more real. 

How you always make these plans, that often tend to change;
When you smile at my senseless jokes, and when I’m acting strange.
That you always say I’m pretty, even when I don’t think that it’s true-
How you think that I’d want anyone else; when all I want is you.

Only in You

Through the lonely woods, I may head,

Upon the autumn leaves, I may tread,

At the secluded horizon, I may stare,

And only you, I may see,

In those symphonies of silence,

In those melodies of calmness,

In those euphonies of quietness.


By the silent lake, I may lay,

Till the twilight fades, I may stay,

Then in reclusive silence, I may walk,

And only to you, I may talk,

Through those toungueless emotions,

Through those wordless attachments,

Through those voiceless sentiments.


In the lone meadow, I may wander,

Along the untrodden paths, I may waver,

In companionless seclusion, I may hide,

And only in you, I may find,

The depths of oneness,

The bonds of togetherness,

The cozy feel of coalescence.


In the wilderness of emotions, I may die,

At the merciless daggering, I may sigh,

Through a million wounds, I may bleed,

And only in you, I may seek,

The balm of love,

The warmth of affection,

The heal of inseparability.

Cool Beauty

Hailstones falling from the sky 
blown by a cold icy cutting wind
bouncing off the ground
clouds black to grey shawl 
winter takes hold 

The ground takes shades of white 
snow capping the mountains peaks
First snowflake falls 
gently melting settling on one finger

Thoughts drifting away inside the soft touch
Petals caressing heart and soul singing 
a choir chanting pulling strings 
blowing warm breaths clouding steam 
frozen whisper of time
feelings flutter into your space

Dancing to loves tune 
weaving our silken soft emotions together
ribbons of light piercing a single teardrop
holds beautiful love in high esteem

I will take you my love higher
to where the heart darling 
will always and forever 
surrender to you without pain 
The snow queen smile, cracks ice

If I had lied like everyone else who achieved their goal,
I could have spared myself an useless headache,
and it seems late to realize that my honesty caused a mess!
There was a table for two sweethearts
in the finest restaurant, my first date supposed to have been perfect
with all the enthusiasm and the sorrounding athmophere:
a boutique of roses and scented candles! 

The girl's name was Amenda with big eyes of sapphire,
the boy's name was Andrew a little outspoken but funny;
everything went smoothly, the food was superb and the waiter
with an Italian accent was humorous and helpful,
but happened next is something nobody would believe.

Amenda had too much wine and started to talk non-sense
asking me, " What kind of work do you do?" 
I promptly replied, " I am a chief ! " and boasting with pride,
silly words flowed from my mouth, " You should see me
in my uniform...everybody loves it! "  Amenda with angry eyes
yelled, " Everybody...including the dumb blonde
and the red headed who order food just to see you? "
I jolted as if in a powerful earthquake, " How do you know that? "
But she with a malignant glance exploded, " I saw them
flirting with you while they waited for their order! "  

" Oh, pretty boy, you brought me here to listen to your aspiration,
I must be stupid enough to believe everything you say? "
I stood up, pushing back my seat and swore, " I never intented to lie,
Amanda...I am sorry for getting you upset, and if my honest caused a mess,
I apologize with all sincerity. " Ah, you even mention the word sincerity:
here's you reward, fool! " And splashing a glass of wine all over my sharp suit,
she left...while the crowd started to laugh, thinking it was a movie scene.  

Here's my deepest reflection on telling little, white lies,
" Guys, on your first date...don't say what you actually do for a living,
invent a profession that brings in tons of money, like a surgeon or attorney;
go ahead and have fun, and the more excited you get her,
the more she'll believe you...who wants to be a loser on his first date? "

At First Glance

**At First Glance**

Friday night lights blind,
Fans thick and in full throat.
our team is in position, primed.
Everyone praying they don't choke!

I'm grooving thanks to Jose' & Jack,
my voice hoarse from acting a fool.


Before I continue
let me just tell you 
what caught my eye!

A ginger,
let's say five nine,
white denim jacket, stunning!
Long hair twisted in design. 

Lights reflection flashing
brightly from her crimson hair.
I stare,
shorties unique with much flare

At first glance I was hooked
and I don't even have her name.
I make my way across the field 
to be known to this grande dame.

Where was I?
oh yeah, the ballgame!

They won with a great aerial attack,
there will be parties all night at school.

the crowd dissolves, she stands alone
I approach! 
Not shy, I cast the first stone.
my name is! you are?

My voice deep like a trombone,
nervous, I'm out of my comfort zone!
She breaks the ice, 
saying something witty
"why'd you take so long?
"I noticed you to silly!"

"Do you have plans tonight?
would you like to join me?"
There's a party on the south side,
just over the railroad tracks.
I grab her hand, "lets take a ride"
Twas my angle of attack!

From a sea of faces,
she stood alone.
Lost in her eyes,
my oasis.
Under her control.

Like a game of "Where's Waldo",
romance found by chance!
Never thought I could fall so hard,
At first glance!

The Beautiful Melt

All those sentimental Christmas songs with romantic pretty lines like "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" or "As Long as you love me so, let it snow let it snow, let it snow" - I'd love to take the feeling of nostalgia each lovely phrase invokes and wrap it around me like a warm woolen cloak. But words do not suffice, and imagination, no matter how sweet, will not see me through a long cold winter's night. I look up at a sky ablaze with stars. They cannot match the light within your shining eyes. I want to BE with you, snuggled by a fire, the steady glow of your adoring eyes on mine; the touch of your fingers on my face; and the touch of my own fingers, trembling, as I trace your smile before you lean in for the softest, smoothest kiss. Oh, for the beautiful melt of the season as the warmth of REAL sensations soak into my skin. No, a mere fond memory simply cannot do!

The sun did not rise with me this morning. The cold, grey mist was there Embracing all the places We had been the night before. The music, too, was gone; And emptiness enfolded me Like silent fog On city streets. Were you ever here? Did we sing a song And dance in the moonlight . . . Embrace, laugh, and Hold each other? I cannot find you now.

Towards Our Love

Leave your fake hill 
And come with me 
To my dream mountain 
Of ecstasy.
Engrave your name 
On every stone 
That builds every part
around my untouched heart.

Leave your house of uncertainty
And come with me 
To my large castle of belief
And just believe,
Believe in me,
Believe in us,
In every step we could take,
Towards the truth, 
Towards the reality,
Towards our love.

Being Depressed Is My Way of Living

If it’s that easy to lose you… then go
People always leave, trust no one even yourself
I love myself for losing you
You can’t deny the fatal truth.. I don’t love you
I’ll never regret the decision to lose you
My soul won’t rest until I forget you
The longer I live the lesser my heart beats for you
You’ve decided to leave me, I’ve decided to hate you
People pretend to love you, turn your back
They wish you to disappear
In my life I trust no one, cause this life is based on lying
I never thought that I would cry when you leave
My heart was strong when you were around
But since you left it weakens by the moment
You made my world rain with sadness
What’s the meaning of friendship if eventually they’ll leave?
I live in a world full of sadness, so why should I be happy??
I’d wish to die than seeing you leaving
I’d wish to die than living like this
I wish to be hopeless, cause I suffer when I hope that you’ll come back
I’d wish to be blind than seeing you leaving 
I’d wish to be deaf than hearing you cry
I wish I had no tongue to taste the bitterness of loneliness
My middle name is misery 
My first name is hopeless
My last name is treachery
I thought it was a dream come true meeting you
But no it’s not a dream, it’s my personal hell
My blood is cold, my heart is stone 
My veins are crumpled, my soul is crushed 
My life is gone with you
I can’t eat, I can’t drink
I can’t see, I can’t hear 
I can’t talk, I can’t walk
I can’t live my miserable life
I see another girl, I feel nothing for her
Where are my feelings? They’re gone with you
I’m just like a rolling stone
You were my twilight, now darkness followed your absence
And everything is dark
I'm lost, I can’t find my way
I'm lost in this place, and this place is my life
Just save me from my misery 
Just let me fade away
My breath is taken
And my heart stopped beating
My heart is cut in splits
No wonder why its so cold
Cause your still here
I'm running out of choices 
I'm running out of clues 
There’s nothing I can do to make this go away
You are like a scar in my heart, that’s tearing me apart

Pure Beautiful

Still shedding tears over you 
how this heart stopped and kissed your feet
it's so hard to erase those happy memories 
I hold them so special in my heart 
the sweetest thing 
anyone has ever done to me in my life 
just took my breath away totally 
madly in love 

I wished to spend the rest of my life with you 
saying yes we smiled together 
just painting my feelings 
always so sweet 
Rubbing my arms 
when I was cooking 
or even coming up behind my back 
hugging into me 

Now am I lead to believe 
it was all a dream 
when you asked me 
what is love 

I answered you in honestly how one felt 
then you turned kissed me 
Softly holding my head in your two hands 
my eyes when they met yours 
the heart will forever lovingly adore 
in that one moment 

softy stroking 
fingers gently holding to the cheeks 
you looked me straight in the eyes 
the most beautiful stare 
I have ever seen 
saying I love you 
oh how this heart melted 
alive in your energy

Snow White

Oh darling
daydreams and night  
you have become an angel 
floating into dreams 
so beautiful they sing

Pure petal wings flutter
dressed in the color of snow 
They dance inside warm love melts
shining a faraway star 
winking in the night sky 

Whom embraces the outer body sweetly
I open four chambers to you
holding all keys out 
My queen warmly holds the soul

One kiss from you 
smitten I would say smiling 
I will always smile in loves grace 
Wishing that I was holding you right now

Wow what a dream baby
out off this world 
you're so beautiful in these eyes 
dazzling mirror reflections blinding

I was held in a butterfly trance 
floating warm heartbeats of breath

Dancing vision of beauties light 
dark jewels sparkling star luster treasure 
Princess pearl of the night sky 
alone wolf cold moon in shadows of life
smiling beautiful silver lining thoughts 
dreaming of your smile
The happiness in special moments 
your eyes such mirrors dazzling me
in you I found a beautiful soul 
floating with the spirits

Halos with open eyes standing aside, fruitful vines; the purity in this their love...

We Need the Dreaded Autumn

Gray haired orchards are still smoking in birds
Our inner plains revolt in signs of the zodiac
The longing creaks in white petals
Northern winds plan spreading of harvest 

We need the dreaded autumn...
Foals still wash their manes in dreams
The echo of romance spreads withered leaves
Last night I dreamed storms in daffodils 

Nature’s nightmare tumble tumult
Bucks thrust hunger in wolves
Snow stormy hour entangles in hair
Frost bites the sweetness in hives 

Gray haired orchards are still smoking in birds
Our inner plains do not believe in dreams
The echo of romance spreads withered leaves
Last night it felt like snowstorms in daffodils.

Queen Vampira's Maidens

Knowing that it was Beautiful Virgins which She Loved; these Delicious Maidens ~
No greater Desire their Taste; burning as flames Stirring in the den of Her Heart *

Into Her Chambers was I led; Voluptuous Ladies of Her Beauties longings...

Bare amid the Mansions walls the attire of such Loveliness; their Choosing ~
Enchanted by Her presence and Spellbound within, Her Sensuous Oceans Eyes *

Rejoicing in Wild Abandonment of Luscious set forth by the Rivers of Her Voice...   

Withdrawing to leave myself Alone, upon Her Majestic Queens delightful Request ~ 

Playfully Giggling, while as exiting as if something Wonderful, was Soon to Become * 

Offering Myself a beverage as Her Smile Glowed these chains; My Rushing Heart...

Enthralled, as Her Beauty spoke amid still Whispered tones, but only, Deep Inside ~

"Love can be a Haunting sometimes," She said, "Soaring through Veins of Beauty" *   

"Burning Divinely its mark this Rapture; should one We Taste, such its Perfect Lips"... 

Royalties Beauty then Caressed My Soft Breast; Her Warm Breath on My Yearning Neck ~ 

And I Adorned in Desires Perfumed Negligee; A Virgin of Want; Wishing to be Set Free * 

Becoming A Princess of The Night yet more unto Me to be, A Maiden, of Her Beauties Love...
Eternals Rapture Kissed My Veins, as Her Silkened Lips claimed, My Dreams; Sweetened Reprise ~

Soft and unafraid

Against the cold ladder she rests
which run up the red aging bricks

on a gray September day

Did this sylph belong there 
in her;
snug light blue jeans

enticing top………

An ode to the most beautiful girl on the planet

Who is that babe?
Who is that fox?
Who is that prettiest girl I have seen?

Truly beautiful on the inside and out.
Oops, was that too cliche?
I don't want to 
scare her away.

I draw near.
And what a surprise!
So does she.

And then I remember.

Then I Can Die

If all I did  was made you feel so real
Among aortas of much needed love
With silky shoulders of stern Pacific layers
Disturbed by memories of wings...

If I defected life and accepted  wrinkles
Of heated rhythm in tempera of love
Although the shyness of a maiden wouldn't vanish
I long to get to know you in your destined life...

If all I did was made you stop and watch me 
Smiling from a frame of wooden Jacaranda wonders
Then I can die forever in immortality of love -

Oh just how that smile, just blew this mind away

Kissing you on the brow softly emotions

Soft gently nibbling the air in your every breath 
gasping gorgeous waves deeply brushing walls

silently dreaming thinking faraway 
Paths cross always you're forever inside floating

Sending you my destiny warm light filled with sparks 
generating from the heart  flying without wings

Rising sun kissing honey

Chain of Sorrows

Maybe darling, you have fallen down  
or got lost, sweetheart on the way home  
to find our path, would you rather die alone without  
rather than be stuck on this earth to someone like me
An overwhelming deep sadness inside mixed with pain  

Banished as stupid while questioning 
in my sanity I felt the ache  
I saw the demon sit at my table blocking me
Falling heavy laden I lay back crying alone  
totally heartbroken saved myself enough money  

Achieving one great goal heading east
You who brought the sunshine warm feelings
flooding back, in pure clear emotions, dreaming of you  
Love you were all my focus, in every gentle care  
Softly in tenderness finding things very hard cut  

Please understand, tears keep falling love  
everything I care about forever remains  
Truly beautiful, did you take the wrong road to me
whatever cost I was left to carry the burden 
Price tag of my past sins thrown on the fire to burn me

I forgive you as one wanted to  
spend the rest of his life with only  
You sweet baby complete, if it means, me going through  
Hell's fire to find our path, holding hands with peace within 
one a spirit chants freedom, thanks to you darling love  

An angel of mercy appears soft  
cloaked in the warm feathers, within light  
saving me in your arms, sweetheart wrapped 
up together, talked  love, you kissed me 
Soft for me, under the rainbow bridge  
A promise when we held each other,  you would marry me

A Toast of Love

Blood of my heart 
flows into you 
the sweetest wine 
sparkling light 
shines upon you 

In this open 
chapter of life 
I hand you 
a silver chalice 
The treasure 
from the heart 
straight out cut
of it's chambers 

Laying it bare
before you 
In offering to you 
your lips 
Heavenly divine 
the mouth's temptation 
all but a breath away 

Tongue the molten shrine 
trickling in emotions 
like the sea 
Upon the rocks 
warm and invite me in 
drink from the vine 

Lusting its taste 
lovers seeking 
the pleasure 
You love the wine 
do you love me 
You answer 
love's toast

Love Poem Number 1

Looking into your eyes, 
on the first day we meet, 
I knew right away when my heart skipped a beat,
It flutters and pounds from Your beauty and care. 
It longs for much more, a world we could share.
You bring such a smile to my tattered, worn soul
A happiness lost, so long, long ago.
A hope, a prayer, I offer to He,
I ask for a gift, your smiles at me.
A smile that grows as we are together,
A smile that shows our potential forever.
You bring me such happiness and pure heartfelt glee,
All this and much more
just being with me.
You are so amazing, so beautiful , so pure.
Your company, your heart, your smile all my cure.
I thank God everyday for hearing my plea
I thank God most of all for you next to me.

has renewed my life.
You are my loving wife.

Boney Bonny Dames and Old Money Games

Until I've seen, Melbourne days
	was not just emptiness in play
I know I'll see
What I didn't see,
the September soaked symphony
	of Vivaldi vines climbing,
jacaranda booms,
tremolo spilling eaves

Until you know this suburban kid's righted the wrong
I'll verse on my way, you as the bridges in my song
Making choruses of dreams that could soon belong

And urban princes and their Porsches
Lost in winters, cold in summers
They adore to ornate you, over muskwood and glassy silvers
But can they look up to the night,
And know wonder in the sight?
In that blue-hued veiled Van Gogh I see your stars

These hardened hands carrying letters I send
	will wear me down to some sorry end
And this I know
But I'll go knowing
the Chapel charade was the pretty noise
	of sonnets chasing sunsets,
drunk Welsh poets
tearing tails for London wisps

Until it comes, a northern boy without southerly blues
The swaying Yarrans, sparkling flutes, Victorian flues
Keeps Flinders Station stepping full of over-priced shoes

And boney bonny dames, old money games
Skirts for winters, surgeons for gains
They climb to lower you, for fifteen lights upon their names 
But can they look up to the night,
And know wonder in the sight?
In that blue-hued veiled Van Gogh I see your stars

Heavenly Nevermore

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere 

with the moon 
and its stars

To give it a whole world
because the sun

doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign 
of the entire universe.

Porchswings and Fireflies

There will come a time
when this moment shall pass
and we will be alone
to enjoy what we missed
making up for the years we gave to others
will be first on our list

yes, the time will come
to sit on our porchswing
and watch the fireflies
light up the night sky with their glowing frames
saying i love you as i look into your eyes
and gently speak your name

As time passes on
the seasons change without much notice
but we don't mind
for we remain the same
in our world of porchswings and fireflies
nothing changes
except the seasons
they go unnoticed...

Every Second We're Away

Every second we're away,
We grow stronger everyday
Until that day will finally come
When we know it's okay
And we will rest in each other's arms
In peace from God above,
No longer missing one another
Because we're together;
Built forever in each other's love.

The Dimples on Your Cheek

 I wanted to sleep
 Without writing any word 
For your smile.
 I wanted to pretend
 I am not touched by your beauty and your style.
 To convince my words,
 I had to show your picture to my heart.
 That is when 
I noticed the dimples on your cheeks.
 Trust me,
 It made your picture the purest art.

She played Chopin
And played it wonderfully well.
She would be quite beautiful -
Young, vivacious - I could tell

From my window I could see her,
Though only her dark, flowing hair.
There was a violin on the piano.
Another musician there?

I yearned to see her face,
To complete the lovely sound with vision.
I would gather courage, go next door,
Knock – this my bold decision.

When I rapped the music stopped.
I waited, restless, eager to see
The form, the face I could love so well,
And hoped she’d (at least) like me

When at last then my obsession appeared
She was all I could ever hope for,
Standing there, smiling, greeting
This stranger at her door. 

I begged her pardon, but couldn’t resist the urge
To see who was playing Chopin so well,
That she truly must like the great Pole.
She was disturbingly amused, I could tell.

I was about to introduce myself
When she declared, “I like Chopin just fine.” -
 Her tone of contempt forever dashed my ardor -
 “It was Romance, by Anton Rubinstein”

Fire Horse

Cast thy stone, like a fire climbing a tree, highly strung, its fuel you need, powerful, can carry a heavy load, no question, a Fire Horse you be! Inconsistent by nature, procrastinate but not in love, your alluring beauty defined by a coat, to cover with lust and a heart of gold, fire burning inside, unbridled and afloat. Motivated by a strength of will, like the painter, color shining, to create a picture from canvas, it comes alive, the masterpiece is never blinding. Fire Horse, free-willed, extraordinary, an independent soul, sometimes forgetful are you, your loathe of waste, drives you arbitrarily, unwinding beauty, unenvious, you're never ice blue. Oh ye Fire Horse, searing smoke in isle atoll, galloping across the sea of life, fire heating the shore, flames of love rising, burning within your soul, a tsunami of devotion, your mane ablaze evermore!

The First Bite

Young girls and dangerous men
Lost of self into that mysterious realm
Like death
The experience of a love that drains
Its excitement
First bite, the feel of teeth
Against the nerve in the neck
Wondrous oblivion
He was a vampire I'm sure my first 
A much older man 
Who led me to his lair
Darkness--candle’s light 
Smokey sandalwood incense
How I was drawn to him
Black eyes and silver hair
We saw each other only
In the night
He cooked couscous and cassolet for me
And never ate
His eyes glistened as he watched 
Then he'd bite and bruise my neck
One morning I awoke 
And he had disappeared
Just left me there in tears
Left me there innocence gone
Shhhhh...My heart still pounds 
When I think of him
Though it's been years

St Stephen's Day

All year you were doing it

And refused to tell me why.

Each coin given in change

Was dropped into the empty coffee can

And by July, another can was needed.

December brought the Christmas tree

That you decorated with care

And when I asked what gift you wanted

You were annoyed

“We’re not buying anything,” you announced

With that special tone of finality.

Christmas night we sat together

Under blankets on the sofa

And you were happy

And I was lost in awe.

On December 26 you leapt from bed

And shook me awake.

“It’s Saint Stephen’s Day!” you proclaimed

Playfully poking your finger into my side

“Saint who?” I asked.

So all the coins were poured from the cans,

Counted and divided into packages

Of equal amounts before you pulled me

Onto the streets and into dismal alleys

“This is Charlotte,” you told me 

And gave her one of the packaged coins.

“This is Thomas,” you later said

And presented him with another of the packages.

You knew all of their names 

And I couldn’t understand how

These residents of alleys and park benches and bushes

Were known to you like old friends

I even noticed that Thomas was wearing 

That sweater I was missing from the closet

“In Italy,” you told me, holding my face

Within your hands.

“St. Stephen’s Day is a time of giving.

Isn’t it wonderful?”

And in that moment I didn’t know

If the day was wonderful

I only knew that you were.

Right to love is right to life
A choice to hate is definitely an invitation of death
True love is a blessing but otherwise could be a curse
A life deprive of love is worse than a life sentenced to death in the court of law
Love is a tree of life and fruits are enormous blessings
In love is abundant wealth and good health
In love is everlasting peace and sound mind
In love is boundless joy and immeasurable happiness
Seek to love always for our world to remain alive

Lingering within my wanting bosom her soft silhouette; silkness ~

Gliding gracefully atop of utopias knowing luxurious

Intimate vanilla creams carpet; tantalizing in sheer perfumed lace...

Delicious dreams rising  amid flames as tasting her strawberry dates ~

Intoxicatings mesmerizing kiss; beauties, glistening moist lips

Entwined in the den of loves, billowed passion...

I am running away eloping
with you sweet love  
inside the mind 
Silently breathing ore sighs 
A golden whisper blowing honey
melting treasure treats
softly in the wind silent warm
Blowing on precious pure beauty

Touching petal feelings 
fluttering without wings
sweet carrying emotions from the soul
Dancing within music one song forever

Glowing warmly desires 
sings gentle satin drumbeats
in a cotton echoing harmony
Always chocolate kissing nibbles 

In every single thought that whispers
love endearing each heartbeat
skipping gasps 
Sweetly grasps the soul
warming  echoing sighs deeply loving you

Desire dances on a pedestal of love.

An eclectic flair of hard wired emotions 

playing on a fiddle of gypsy strings 

creating tension with every note.  

hanging in the air waiting for a sound

so pure, so innocent, so delicate.

so perfectly  exquisite for the moment

that it is often remembered for a lifetime.

CAK  7-5-2013

Love seems to be a main topic
of many that write for Poetry Soup.
It seems to linger on the outskirts of ones mind 
and whatever that means to the person
at the moment, it was a significant
part of their past.  
Good, bad or indifferent,
it is seldom forgotten.

This Thing Called Love

Twas just the greatest treasure,

that Mankind has ever found. 

Yet its bounty is not hidden inside a chest, 

nor buried underground, 

It won,t be all piled up and shining in a mound, 

You won,t need a key to unlock it, 

in fact it,s not even bound, 

Yet it can be found, 

by just about anyone, 

from a panda to a hound, 

You do not need x-ray eyesight, 

nor ears that hear the slightest sound, 

No, this thing-a-ling almost anyone can bring, 

In fact its all around. 

It comes from deep, deep, deep inside, 

with blessings from the Man above, 

It comes sometimes in an instant, 

sometimes it nestles in like a glove, 

What is this one thing, 

that makes you want to sing, 

and live peacefully like the dove, 

It introduces all Queens to her King, 

Why of course, 

this thing is Love.

Oh, how I would love that, starting today, you would become my skin
So that I could take you places where I have never been.
We would ride from rose to rose, our souls floating in the wind,
And when the time to rest comes, I would lie on your chest,
And we would meet again underneath this same strange sky.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that not even a dream
Could have been more tender.

Oh, how I would love to be perfumed by your breath,
And to know that there will be no parting,
That parting that makes us leave each other at a certain time,
Since people think that Love requires a moon
To allow its honey to run freely through our hearts.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that not even a dream
Could have been more tender.

Oh, how I would love to turn you into my guitar,
So I could hug you freely and make my poem out of you
And have your loving words become the caresses of my night,
So that the breaking dawn would compete against our light.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that it’s no dream,
And I would tell you that I love you.

A Beautiful Girl

Serenity, this late autumn's joyful early morn
Quietly watching, the red candlelight's aglow
Incense petals its tiny yellow flame, reaching
Unto these perfumed remnants of the night..
As but a gentle whisper she sways; removing
Her blue negligee; sliding from velvet beauty
Fortuned be the waiting floor; soft silhouette
Kissing, her silk breast; the warmth; her love.

Details | Free verse | |


It’s all one long poem.
Ephemeral love.
My evanescent queen
Seasonal spirit.  Elemental creature
Sculpts creation; As we define dominion
The space has mastered us
Terminable yet eternal
This amaranthine ghost
A dimensional drift.  Consciousness shift
Consumption and means to exist
float apart in a universal rift
I destroy families
Tearing apart
 every home as I go.

Her Arrival, Herself

She arrived.
Meet her,
Boiled egg, naked smoothness white
Like marble, reliable and strong.
O svelte composure of demureness,
Burst and strut through
In the last quarter of the year
To us.
Border line, rain and sun
In battle, drench an already saturated earth
With querulous mingle.
And I am not earth bitterly
To harvest warm dimpled kisses.
Should I dare,
Descriptory massage,
Almond rounding of your eyes
Received and stored in a lid
Lubricated with tears, and contained. Those eyes
Belong to stellar-clad skies
Scudding pedagogically for the Magi,
Myself, they move, and I learn
A lovely pencil of nose, yours,
Yet domicled above lips
Unselfish to reveal snow-white melons
An opening of fresh rose bud,
With the fragrance raw.

The gait is contagious
Not to me. But I wish
I could see disrobed her figure eight
That would never be mine.

The soft breakables of the valley
Would be adored to wetness and excitement,
Fantastic, incited not by me
Who cannot enter that palace
Preserved in the garden
Of her thighs.

for Chiugo, my elder brother's wife.

Roses, Rubies, and Strawberries

Mi fantasma dulce

Send me a rose
This Valentine's Day
A single red

Reminds me of 
The  crimson light
We shared

Magical Moments

Gazing lovingly upon her velvets
Beautiful heart shaped glass
Searching about the vanities 
Disclosing drawer and a brush 
Gliding it sensually through 
Her cascadings golden hair
Mesmerized as joy fills my eyes
Once more; such beauty her light
Giggling while turning knowingly 
Amid her silkened bareness
Cherries set in firm atop, soft
Voluptuous vanilla breast
Swaying gently fragrants perfect
Hourglass afore that my heart 
Timeless this love's windless 
Chills caressing my spirit 
Left drifting inside these her
Spellbinding, oceans painted eyes.

Catching Cadence

Along the crossing of a river bank I see currents enchanted by your smile even rainbows mimic your spotless splendor Words slip from my sluggish thoughts as i paint your nature with poetry The truth of your beauty, already written Nothing else should replace like wings need not rest on another wings to fly or rather a dew to your rosy cheek I am here, wandering with the carried waves catching cadence of how unknown rhymes are made out of your turbulent tides I threw gazes at the stars shining on you and emotions evolve out of how much I want you to “be mine”

How Can I Thank You

How can I thank you?
For saving me
For giving me hope
For loving me

You came into my life
When I needed you most 
When I needed to be loved
You allowed me to dream

You made me feel special
You made me feel handsome
You made me feel desireable
You made me feel alive

Now that you've left
I know there's someone waiting
Someone that will hold my hand
Someone that will love me forever

Casualties of Love

Casualties of Love
Check the victims report
Broken hearts, pain, ice cold
Check the newswire
Filled with heartbreak, desire
Walk away, never look back
That’s how it’s done, no emotion
Don’t forget to look in the mirror
It’s a reflection of your life

Loves Sweet Desires


Out of nowhere her lovely beauty, suddenly, filling my thoughts ~

As chimeful bells beginning their rising within my heart; echoes...

A love it seems I have held before; stirring my spirit in coals of fire

Smoldering these flames wishing to ignite; with just one touch of her

Words for now that mesmerize; something deeper; much deeper inside ~

The way she whispers so sweetly; softly caressing my thighs...

Portrait of Joe and Wanda

Written: March 8, 2012
Updated: August 15, 2012
Note: Sequel to An Evening at the Home

3:00 a.m. - There was a full moon, and all was well.

Restless, uneasy snoring in various pitches was the only music of the night.

Starched white uniforms did not dare wrinkle as the nurses moved from room to room.

Only the softest of tip-toeing was allowed.

Shoes did not dare make a sound against the cold floor. 

Breath was held as long as it took to not disrupt the unexpected calmness.

No one knew that Joe and Wanda had "run off to Las Vegas" to get married. 

Joe and Wanda knew that they had to "run off to Las Vegas" to get married.

They "ran" as far as the solarium.

Asleep, they each snored together restlessly.

5:00 a.m., Joe and Wanda received the sad news that they were not married.

5:05 a.m., they received the sad news that they were not in Las Vegas.

5:10 a.m. they were escorted back to their separate rooms.

5:15 a.m., they each snored separately.

7:00 a.m., they each woke up not remembering their own names.

8:00 a.m., Joe remembered his own name.

10:00 a.m., Wanda remembered hers.

10:30 a.m., Joe remembered Wanda's name.

Never again - Wanda remembered Joe's name.

A wishing Well Love

A wishing well love
By Steven Cooke

I sit here all alone
The snow melting on my face,
A falling leaf sheds a memory,
Of my first love.

It was here, that barmy night
She tripped in fun, amongst the leaves.
She breathed a smile,
Took my hand,
And softly seduced me with a kiss.
A secret wish comes true.

We made love that summer evening,
By the river, under the willow.
.Watched by a lover’s moon,
Hidden from View.

Stared at the stars with our wishing well,
We dreamed of love and silly things,
Two hearts, inhibition to the wind,
Our souls locked in nature’s song.

But Young Love is a precious thing,
And winters do blow cold.
And in the fading light 
She said goodbye.
A last glance, a precocious smile,
And the last moon dance was over

So here I sit with my wishing well
Full of broken dreams,

Yet still, I see embers of a girl 
Who shared love, under the willow
Gave hope to my dreams, 
Touched my heart,
And taught me well about
The wishing well

No tears now, there are dreams to make.
For That wish has flown away
To find another love
To breathe another wish
Into another’s heart.
To unlock more dreams
For her wishing well to pour.

But our union was fruitful
For my wishing well is full
And dreams I can now give
For I seek my real love,
Where ever she may be.
Could it be you?

That smile

In hurried fashion
the search was for the purple

“Lavender” she called it

The rummage was the must,
our ears did hear
the thud of angry feet beat near

Yes, I did sweat,
and again, 
she smiled

Your Eyes

Your Eyes

Your eyes...
Speak to me of your love
A gift from God up above
Kisses so gentle, so true
Holding my hand under a blue sky
You touch my face and wipe a tear from my eye

Your eyes...
Such a beautiful shade of brown
Your laughter...
Your humor...
Your love...
Your kindness...
Never let me down

Your eyes...
Tell me a secret I hold deep within my heart
A love so true, and never makes me blue
"Babe, you say. I'm so in love with you"
I realize we've had some rough spots along our way
But honey, God will see to it
That our love is here to stay

My Heart Sings

As the first rays of sunshine
wakes me out of my sleepy slumber,
I sat up in bed and looked at my hands.
The taste of stale cigarette smoke of cheap red wine
stained my taste buds.
I walked out of bed,
turned on the radio
(to the classical station)
and my heart beats to the tune
my life and soul smile as the sun shines in my room.
I hear God whispering in my ear
I hear all the words of the world
talking to me,
and I can hear my heart sing a little.
I read my poetry,
get dressed go for a walk,
I smile at the faces that I pass;
The cars I pass,
the houses,
the trees,
the dry lawns,
burnt and that have not been watered in days.
I smile at them and they all smile back,
and my heart sings a little,
and I dance to its simple tune.

My heart sings and I dance too:
slowly melodies,
fast jigs,
rapid jazz and swing music
and waltzes to the chopin masterpieces,
and the romantic stories, novels, the poems,
that fancy your mind with its ryhme schemes,
and after I read such romantic beauty
I smile, and I listen closely to my heart,
and with every beat,
it lets out a verse or two, from a familiar song
that caught my ear on the radio,
and my heart sings
and I smile,
and the world smiles back.

Feeling such beauty
love and romance
it is such a good feeling to live with;
and as the night rolls on,
and the sun goes away
I sit at my desk
writing poetry,
with a cigarette slowly burning away with time,
and I am stuck,
getting drunk of red wine,
I sit back in my chair,
and listen to my heart,
and he sings alittle
and I can write again.
So, there we sit together,
writing poetry,
smoking cigarettes,
drinking wine
to the strike of nine
and we both sing songs of love and romance
together forever.

The Barnacle on my bum part 2

My tale about the barnacle I bared upon my bum
has now passed into legend and folk law
The  battle I thought was over and now long done
Just when I thought I could sit down and relax
and lick my wounds
and heal my poor bum
I now have two barnacles
clinging on instead of one.

Their jealous of each other
and  like a porcupines
my bum is very sore
I'm stuck in the middle
and I don't think I can take any more!!!!!.
My telephone is melting
and they push love notes through my door
I'm divided down the middle
and I'm preparing for war.

I have no idea why they follow me around like flies
maybe it's my aftershave that smells so nice
There's nothing about me
I do declare
but everytime I turn around
there's always someone there.

Why couldn't it ever be
who I really like
I even tried to escape on my motorbike last night
I thought I was just saddle sore
but latter when I pulled my trousers down
what did I see
not two barnacles but three.

I darn't leave the house no more
and I've barricaded myself in
I'm now a nervous wreck 
and I've taken to drinking Gin
I've sealed the letter box and took the phone of the hook
and have been searching amazon for a useful book.

If your a poor sufferer too
have a hammer and chisel
we can help each other get through
just bare your bum like me
and maybe we could throw the barnacles back into the sea.

''Beware! their out there''.

My Yesterday

Business in my head … it won't stop
When it starts it can't end
Where it ends nobody knows
Decisions, decisions - always, never ending.

With the wind in my face, wheels turning around and around
I hear the YellowJackets; Theonius Monk pulsing in the background
Charlie Parker screeching to the beat of real jazz
Melodious chords after chords floating onward – peacefully in tune inside.

Momentum carries my thoughts of one, today
With smiling green eyes of 
Golden hair forcefully driven - dressed in happiness, colorful 
Echoing throughout my day.

Outside she … coated in sugarless healthy sweetness – wine in hand
Inside I wonder - what moves her?
What thoughts she may have of life’s joys and false toys?
Wearing outer power … searching inner self for what she is, will be, wants to be? 
Wondrous movements of such deep intensity – hmm.

This Time

This time you did say "Will you marry me?"
This time I did say "I will"
This time we did walk down the isle
This time we did say "I do"

This time you are my husband
This time I am your wife
This time it's together forever
This time there will be no retreat

This time we will surrender
This time only to each other
This time, yes, this time
This time is meant to be our time

Woman of my dreams

I used to know him very well Bestfriends we used to be, almost as one He would inspire to write and create feelings in verse Passion would erupt from within my very soul He taught me of love and how to love That love has no color nor image It's not how he looks like but how he makes you feel that matters His rhymes, his words of love made me believe that maybe I too was a Romeo And I fell, she is beautiful beyond my understanding Her hair smells like flowers that are yet to be discovered A smile fit for an angel Her body, i cant explain but I freeze when she nears me and I stutter He tells me she is for me, and I want to believe him Yet I feel she is way out of my reach Again he shows me the power of love and I smile Who would have thought that I was a poet He tells me who he is and that he is me Yes I speak of my heart, I want to believe him I fall for her ever deeper and she begins to walk out of my life But he damn he tells me to keep trying why wont my heart give up When i hold her nothing else matters, I love her

She simply said

She Simply Said

I'm no model...
I do have my moments,
When the mid-day sun 
Compliments my masculine mask—marvelously
And my mug is admired
So when I asked her
What does she sees in me?
She simply said, "It's the way that you kiss me."

I'm not a "snazzy dresser,"
Jeans, T-shirt and Nike's
Are my trademark attire
I do appreciate the comfort 
Of a hooded sweatshirt
With an inside pocket
To safeguard my American Sprits-
Yes I smoke...casually.
Every once in awhile,
I'm forced to wear a tux-
And my oh my do I look fabulous
So when I asked her
Is it the way that I dressed,
She simply said, "It's the way that you kiss me."

I'm no millionaire,
Though I do welcome wealth,
I am not fascinated with temptation
I prefer to live comfortably
I do not indulge
In unnecessary needs
I accept what The Lord allows me to have
I take pleasure in struggle and its results that brings strength
I have had my share of riches
A vehicle that advertised vanity
Eating expensive entrees
While sipping red wine-"pinky-out."
A hair dresser to tease my hair,
Therapeutically conditioning and combing
Then creating thin-lines of "corn-rows."
So when I told her
I don't know what she sees in me,
She simply said, "It's the way that you kiss me."

Even though I crave
An intense love-making session,
I'm no xxx-movie star
I have had my moments of longevity
When my mind was altered with enhancers
I don't like to disappoint,
So I give fantastic fore-play
And I am serious about my service
Providing the premium package
There have been times when
I have been known to exceed my limits—
It's rare but it happens
And strange sounds are sung
So when I hinted to her
I know that's what she sees in me,
She simply said, “It’s the way that you kiss me."

I am a clown, 
I find laughter 
In the worst situations
I giggle at accidents
Make fun of the miserable
I am a jester
Playing practical jokes
On unsuspecting people
I embarrass my 
Women in public—because I love them
I do act my age sometimes
Transforming into a decent citizen
Who’s courteous and respectful
But mostly,
My personality is outspoken and careless
So when I told her
I don't know how she puts up with me,
She simply said, “It’s the way that you kiss me."

Romeo and Juliet (Our Story)Pt 1

Heavens smiled upon my being
at the tender age of ten and four years,
For the elation her beauty projected
through my blind eyes reborn sight,
Thus by such a miracle the eyes of mine
decreed that she and she alone was beauty,
For within her smile, upon her lips, and
more so within her soul, she declared me,
and me alone to hence forth be invited to
dwell in her heart by the name of Romeo,

Our affair, though innocent, became fueled
 with the intense desire of a hell flame, yet,
was equated with the youth and innocence of
a rosebud, and as a rosebud, bloomed to display
the enchantingly enticing emotion of love,
Creating scenes of romance that neither Shakespeare
nor any other poet could express with diction,
Thus, as I write of reminiscence, with words
that woo my will of wonder, despite the beauty
within such words, I degrade by virtue of degrading,
the true scenes of romance born between 
myself and my love within those moments

Thus the scene remained as such, until that day,
That wretched, unbearably cruel day of reality,
in which my Juliet was forced to depart from
the shelter of my affection, by the will of the parents
that created her for me, moved to a new life, a better life,
for new work and more gold, miles and miles and miles
away from the comfort of a love perfect by definition,
Bidding farewell broke my spirits, my heart, but never
my emotion and affection for my fair Juliet, thus I declared,
forever and forever and forever again I shall remain her Romeo,

Starry nights remind me of 
those time 
we stay up all night 
waiting for shooting stars 
to weave our dreams with, 
those times when your love 
is unceasingly flowing 
like the river 
and that 
holding hands seem 
the only thing that matters 
in this world, 
those were 
perfect moments I 
thought would last 
but then 
Van Gogh must be right 
to paint the stars with 
shades of blue and gray 
for you have left me 
with tears 
and broken promises 
and I will forever wonder 
if wishes 
under shooting stars 
do really come true.

I am a monster
A tormented work of God’s hand
I will roll over you
Like a storm
Because that I am

My energy will attract you like a swarm of bees in spring
Into your lover’s bed
Where I will remove tranquility
From you mind
Before you reject me

I am a Tesla 
My fingers set to spark
They will suck the life out of your longing
You will desire to burn again in my hell

But you will remove me
And keep me at bay
For I am too strong in field
To leave close to your heart
Yet I will possess you

Not because I own you
Only will I own your desire
To wrap around my tongue again
And from inside your womb
You will grow a hand longing to pull me into your core

Yet I will unwillingly shake your bed 
While you try to sleep
Because I cannot stop
Even when I rest
A storm I am

Cursed am I
With a double vortex of pain
That rips at my muscles
And makes them twitch
When I want them to relax

There is lightening inside of me
That longs to be kissed into a deeper slumber
Just once, so that I can rest in bliss at your side
Will you do that for me, just once?
Or throw me away before the first dawn, as is my fate

My tormented soul
Wants the electrocutioner’s pulse
To leave me alone
And let my limbs recline
For just one night

But instead I must sleep awake
So I do not unleash
Another crushing wave
Against your brain
As my twitching arms attack you despite my love

For while a storm may intrigue you to watch
You will not ride long in the funnel of this tornado
I will become your toy
And discarded after a few shocks of my constant sparking
Have burned your precious fingertips into charcoal

My place will become as your sworn servant
When you require another grinding
And remember the reason your millstones have worn thin
Desiring another load
To render into stardust

And while I just wish to rest my weary head
Upon your swollen breasts of honey
While you sleep against me in pleasure’s afterglow
The storm that never sleeps will jar you awake
And your pointed finger will show me out the dog’s door

Creep that I am
Requires his mask to be kissed away, but it will not yield
No one can endure
A lasting embrace
Because I will bump your arms away in the night

You should be warned
As upon notice be you now informed
My tic ticking heart
Will demand its daily toll
Sending me to sleep alone

Is this the face, this old hulk in the salt marsh? 
Is this my lady with creaking timbers
 and peeling skin? 

 A mere figurehead, a turkey prow, 
missing one oar, grandiloquent, vainglorious, 
still fighting the old sea-battles
with the wind and waves

the thousand ships
 that lie at the bottom of the sea.

Tango Serenade

Her red dress
Flowing in the air
Like flames
It burns,
Her wide hazel eyes
Sharply looks,
Her Brown tall curls
Whenever she turns around
and makes a loud sound
with her high healed black sandals,
Her thick red lips
softly sings.

He passionately plays his violin,
His stick goes back and forth
on its strings,
His arm quickly moves,
His deep black eyes
directly stares at her;
tracing every movement
waiting every reaction.

She feels she wants more,
She can move more,
dance more,
He provides her with energy;
His eyes, his smile,
His music controles
every movement she makes,
every sound she utters.

His stick,
His magnetic force,
His creative powers
invites her to life
He is a magician!

She can dance forever,
look at his face forever,
hear his music forever,
love him forever.


He owns the world.

~ Oh, maiden of light cracks the wispy air open , wandering around viscous spaces like virgin shadow caressing the edge of sleep… and the days stretch longer, taller than guava trees dreamingly shedding laces of northeast streams when songbirds, orbits, and a pageant of flowers listen to a single humming breeze… and when all else is sprawled quiet, waterfalls marry her certain lingering star straying on mouths of gentleness past eons bound by nuptials in iridescent realms…
*O, ilaw, sa gabing malamig, wangis mo'y bituin sa langit… O, tanglaw, sa gabing tahimik, larawan mo, Neneng, nagbigay pasakit. Ay! *
Somehow ,curlicues drape a fragrant smoke leaking out a folk sky; dancing in the mirror of the mountain pool… a serenade weeps; quivering, moaning along the inland pass that someone said morning becomes electra, that learning how to hear her blossom or pearl stone unravels the very skin from which it was born is allowing time to shed her purity far beyond unknowing a water’s need to keep still: the juice spills…
**Gising at magbangon sa pagkagupiling sa pagkakatulog na lubhang mahimbing; buksan ang bintana at ako'y dungawin, nang mapagtanto mo ang tunay kong pagdaing. * *
Peeling new faces of time, shaping the width of endless rhyme in sprays of endless mystery... like so, a thousand times before and after, twilight and daybreak entwine… oh,light elusive, passing through calm eyes of young maiden’s season is love’s way of coming back to itself. ~ -------- * O, light, in the cold night; you're like a star in the sky O, light, in the quiet night, your picture, Neneng, makes one ache…. Oh! ** Awake and arise from slumber, from your sleep so deep. Open your window and look out to me So that you may understand my true lament. ~ this poem is inspired by a harana, a traditional Filipino serenade. The suitor is accompanied by his friends who back him up both vocally. At first, the woman's window is closed. The man calls out to her and if she's interested, she'll open her window. Singing harana originated during the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines.~ --------- For Debbie’s Bi-lingual Poetry by nette onclaud

I Remember That Summer

           ....  I remember that summer

    ...He was only here for the summer.
Countless afternoons the four of us spent
swimming at the dam or playing soccer in the park.
Gayle and I, he and Donny.

    ...Awkward fifteen year old shyness
turned into sixteen year old flirtations.
A game of tag in the cemetary
turned into a playful wrestling match
before becoming a tender kiss.

    ...He told me he could not date me
because his best friend had a crush on me.
Before summer ended I was dating a senior,
eighteen and so grown up.

    ...His friend had never stood a chance with me
and he had thrown away his.

Drunk in the City of Angels

Drunk in the lost city,
lost in the vase beauty of the angels
drunk, smoking on park benches.

Freaks, trannys, whores and pimps,
looking at me;
a one of a kind.

No one has ever seen me on the streets of L.A.,
beacause I am a one of a kind,
a gentleman, a drunken buffoon.

I hurl myself at the bars,
and the whores look at me and smile,
and I wave them over, and they come.

40 bucks for a night a good fun,
a night of exotic pleasure,
in the heart of the sleeping angels.

Drunk walking,
two in the morning,
police stop me, sleeping on a park bench.

Warm always warm,
never cold,
the city that is lost.

A city known as the city of angels,
yet how many devils I have counted.
How much evil I have seen,
how much temptation rules in the gutters.

Walking drunk on madness,
in this dirty city,
as I look for a bar before last call.

I find one,
I go in,
order a beer.

I drink with pleasure
I start to write,
I light a cigarette and smoke.

A grey cloud forms around me,
"Last call for alcohol," the barkeep shouts.
I raise my hand, he comes over.

"What will yah have?" he asks,
"Another beer and my check."
On the house, free drinks, on the house.

After a night in the city of angels,
I find myself a cosy park bench,
and fall asleep, dreaming of the angels I had never seen.

Flying on Loves Wings

I have thought of you 
quite a lot last night 
just before sleep dreaming 
Desiring you're sunshine 
Oh sweetie, your becoming so... 
actually I am lost for words 
for once.... 

If you where here darling 
I would give to you 
the deepest kiss ever 
words will speak 
from deep within the soul 
I would never get exhausted pleasing 
Fading away in your very breath sighing're so sweet 
gasping with the taste of your beauty 
baby you rise the heart high 
as warm strings tug softly thinking 
I wish for the right words fantastical ... 
dying for you always and forever 
Searching for the soul's adoring dream 
inside honey warm and beautiful 

Just dreaming of something so rare precious 
a love so pure gold 
One that would stay blooming 
for all time inside the heart 
So ........sweetheart 
tell me do you feel it now

We Never said Good Bye

I love you in spring… 
When the sun kiss the dew upon virgin grass
When robins build their nests high up in tall trees  
And soft rain quenches the thirst of the rich, black earth
Making music with watering cans on the patio floor
That lulled us into slumber on lazy Sunday afternoons

I love you in summer…
When surf dances atop playful, swelling waves
Its wild and loud roars drowns out carefree laughter
And mimicks our frolicking beneath the blazing sun
Inviting us to share warm nights beneath dazzling stars
Wrapped as one, gazing the moon in the southern sky

I love you in autumn…
When brisk winds hurry to undress proud elms
When casual walks and a fire signals the end of day
In love, we never notice the fading sun light
Then comes the day when ‘jealous fate’ interferes
And time swallows the many years we’ve been apart

Soon, winter comes and I will love you still…
When frigid weather lingers long and chills the bones
Can lovers’ hearts call through corridors of time?
Perhaps, deepest love dissolves invisible walls?
At last, you’ll find me here, somewhere in between
And who knows, it may be like we never said good bye

once upon
a time
i dreamed
in the smallest
of flowers
as the sun smiled
i saw your face

a sprinkling
between two fingers
i give them to you
tiny little princess
fairy dust
who has 
the sweetest eyes
prettiest of smiles
to die for

melting in 
the deepest chambers
sweet like 
cotton candy
wishing away
with the fairies
on the scent of
her beautiful musk

enchanting like spell
in the aroma 
of a thousand blooms
into the most 
beautiful dream
you do enter
the air leaves

breathless whisper
on the wings 
of the heart
everything about you 
is beautiful
colours beyond words
bouquet the light 
circling around you

into the most beautiful
dream world
ever known to man
to live 
in the fairytale
you have found
your dream

The Old Shirt-w


After very long time, I took out my shirt
Cornered in the wardrobe on a hanger.
I found a long familiar hair in the collar
How a*beauty drew me with a single hair.

Ah! What a feel of an intoxicating smell
Of her most favored Bocheron perfume.
Bringing back the memory of the past
I wore that shirt in that memorial winter.

Relapsed in to that my fondest memory
As I was penning pretty poor poetry
The blonde with midnight black hair came
Asked me to finish my poem*March Madness.

My unfinished poem in black ink dried up
Finished and could finish my wet desire.
Those curious locks my soul so aptly twined
Whose every soft hair a soul doth bind.

Young memory of first love never fades away
Old memory is like flowers planted yesterday.

PS I love you

For letting me hang my words out
 On a line
 For others to see 
If they struck
 Pressed or blew
 A familiar note

I lay my tender heart

I lay my tender heart at your feet
and my soul and very being I surrender
My desire and quest
to fill your heart with joy
and summer
by the sweetest of emotion and affection.

To stand by you
to provide and protect you
a bond so strong nothing can tare it apart
until death do us part
and later
we meet once more
in a much better place
once again

Whatever You Say, Dear

It's Friday! And it’s “Girls’ Night Out"! His favorite dinner and wine we shared! We give each other a little bit space, at least, once every other week Any given night, always a special treat, we may choose to cuddle instead Whatever desires the other may have, each makes sure to prioritize That’s the routine in our love nest; it’s just how we sail this boat Dressed in stretched jeans; curves seemly more pronounced and I feel burning eyes upon me Yes, I know that look so very well, but tonight, that can’t go down To put him off, I attempt light conversation; to sort of change his unspoken suggestion I nonchalantly ask, “What game are you planning to watch, Love?" With a silent, hope, that craving eyes would deflect Deliberately, I avoid his intense stare, speaking loudly, a language I know too well Too late! In just two steps he’s all over me; and I melt like butter in the sun “Can’t you call? Say you’ll be a little late, hmm?” He whispers in my ear “No, Love, the last time I did that, we fell asleep, remember?” “Look, I’ll set the alarm, just one hour will do; I’m missing you already”. Like a kid, he begins to pout and guilt raps at my heart’s door Planting warm butterfly kisses the expanse of my neck Murmuring low, words he knows I love to hear And though I feign disinterest, persistent hands unrelenting “Will you call and tell her? Will you, or I’ll call if you like?” He may be unaware, though it’s hard to tell, as there are no secrets which I can maintain In my mind I’ve already begun to disrobe him; my favorite dance flats cast aside On the verge of giving in, I raise up my head to gaze those smoldering eyes In that instant, I’m captured; cornered, again His brilliant smile from lips so soft appears plastered on his chiseled face Fully aware he’s won like so many times before He picks up the phone, hits speed dial with one hand free; The other is wrapped snugly 'round my waist as I admire his one track mind “Hi Caitlin! Listen... …Yes, she’ll be late. Now, how'd you know?” And her laughter rings throughout cyber space as she's made a prudent guess “That’s fine, I just know!” She replied, still chuckling. “Ask her to call me before she leaves, will you?” “Oh sure! Whatever you say, dear.” ~*~

Soft Silk Dreams

Virgin love... 
Beholding this gleam within her eyes
Knowing, how much she is desired
Lying in bed at night, fantasizing
One step closer unto its joyful, revealings moment
Fingertips sliding lavenders silk to the side
Again, moaning deeply aneath crystals pleasing
Euphorics arrival; the newness and everything 
Now seems so beautiful; red and white lace 
In perfumed make-up and she...
Anticipations tossing about her hair 
Flowing as the candlelight sways 
Love's fireplace dancing; romance, pink champagne 
Upon ice with their frosted glasses; gentle music
Painting her tomorrow and rose petals fragrant 
Bouquets she colours waiting atop the table...
Sanguine hearts; amid chimeful bells, they'll play.

I feel pretty, pleased and precious.

You've wakened
Thoughts of pleasure we've just taken.
Last night
I knew delight
Everything felt oh so right.
Haven't had before what we have shared.
Though terrified
Of this hunger I tried to hide.
But still
I will
Come back for more and have my fill.
Of you
This new
Sensations raw, but moments are few.
For kissing
Just thinking leaves my skin all tingling.
In every pore.
I love and want you even more.

A Forest Fire's Prayer

please make me more simple.
kill the most part of my life.

if arson is my destiny,
let me  turn to ashes nothing but the dry leaves
on feet of the trees, so they’ll grow denser with ease.

tell sorrowful tales to the sky
about wild orchids, dead before they bloom
about fallen seedless fruits.
about birds lost in smoke, birds losing their nests.
make her cry. make the sky shed her tears.
help the forest foster more leaves and grow 
a greener green. 

take me to the town’s waste
to the kitchens of the famished
to the veins of those shivering with loneliness
to the couple who’ve spent too long sharing 
their backs with one another

please make me more humble.

Queen of Hearts

           Toward the heavens the moon ever climbs
         Love claims her majestic throne among the stars
           I stand before her mystic shrine, in throe of heart
       Grant mine love’s decree and return his desire unto me
              Much hope attends mine wish; I plead of thee
                 Oh queen of hearts tend mine wounded soul
               In mine solitude I weep and upon moonlit paths 
                        I shall wander haunted by his memory

I am Not Supposed to Tell You

I’m not supposed to tell you 
How much I care or even look 
With envious longing at your lovely  
Dark, debutante hair, falling 
All ‘round your shoulders, neck and face;
I could be arrested and found guilty of
Wishing I could trace 
The curves and lines of your
Body and mind merging  
And converging into bliss;
It’s against the rules to play the fool 
And wish for your sweet kiss.  Never
The less, your sweet caress
Could lure me into sin;
I dare not tell a single soul 
Lest I fall right in
Your arms opened wide
Like summer skies
And angels with outstretched wings;
But I’m not supposed to tell 
How I feel about 
These things.

the Human Seasons: Elements At War and Peace, Part IV


Each dawn, the cold steps back a pace,
And in the lengthening light the tender green steals up
Through the retreating ice and snow
As the lands rise fresh and free from the deathlike sleep again,
To play the full young mother dressed out in life itself,
Strolling through the warming, waxing sun.

Growth and generation give the lie
To the empty time so short before
Everything renewed proclaims its exoneration from stasis
And beauty runs riot, freed from its long waiting
To declare its immortality again.

And for he and she love grows anew
In the hopes reborn in the spring's thaw
The heart's slow healing gathers force with the blooming 
As they pull the threads of their lives back together,
Sewing them closer with trust and forgiveness,
Going on again in the thousand-odd ways
That make a single life of two.

Love trumpets again its smug triumph
Through the wakening world,
For it too is one of the old, strong forces,
The one that holds together what would fain break itself apart
To its own rack and ruin;
The ultimate surgeon,
Healing with slow steely cuts 
Cauterizing the strangely sweet wells of pain
With unquenchable fire
That burns,

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every
new days kiss

What words

What words, dear God?
For an idiom 
Or an idea
Of all that this means!

If not then, or when
My soul resounds 
At a silent thought
Lights an eternal flame
Recalled at sacred hearths;

Within quiet chambers
Wounds would heal
Once dealt unwittingly
Now in privacy, thoughts
Wrench relentlessly
At souls adrift
Through time and space;

Words cut at passions denied
Allow this one impression
To swathe us
Dear God, what words?

Do I Love Him


Who would’ve thought I’d be his? I used to hate him.
What was expected seems never fit the wish
When my mind was for other, fate directed my heart to him
Where is my hatred hiding? Or has it melted then vaporized?
Why now I can’t put a smile without his? Can’t bear my life without him? I guess I do love him

Missing You

Can't you see it
Flashing in the night?
Can't you feel it?
You're taking away its light.
Can't you see it
Fading out of sight?
That's my heart, lost and lonely,
And it's missing you tonight.

Spider, a Motorcyle Man

Why do I think of you?
A casual encounter one day
We met and rode for a while.
So short a time, yet unforgetable.
Loving every second.
I think of you, Bill
Every time I see a spider,
Just like you said I would.

Wasted Time

                        Afraid of making,
                            that first move.
                         Quietly with small talk,
                             without a sentence,
                                ever being spoken.

                         Bumping legs
                             beneath the table
                              rubbing shoulders,
                                 with only sideways looks.

                           How awkward these times
                                  can be.
                           If only we had spoken
                                  of things we wanted,
                             without the fears,
                                     of rejection.

                             How much wasted time,
                                     could we have saved.

A Love Letter Without a Stamp

Ascending Everest in my head,
Offered me nothing near a view,
As magical as what I see before me.

She is a beauty like no other.

Her eyes like a she-wolf,
Hunting on a winter’s night.
Her voice like the singing,
Of a swan by the sea.

She appears to me,
As the blossoming rose,
Trapped amidst the nettles.
Like the worshipped sun,
Shining proudly behind,
Feeble obscuring clouds.

I am not Cú Chulainn.
Such a hero’s shadow,
Would cast me from sight.
My deeds will not be sung,
For her to swoon over.
Like a twin inside the mirror,
When I leave I will be gone.

But still I gaze at her.
An eighth wonder I would say,
To any who asked me.
Trapping my vision,
To my heart she glows,
Her radiance shaming,
Purest silver and gold.

If only I could forge myself anew,
In the image of the heroes of the Gael,
Then would she see me?
Would she recognize,
A heart that quickens at her glance?
A soul on fire at her words?

Everest’s views,
Present to me a blank canvass,
When compared to her,
This glorious beauty in front of me.

At Last

There’s a house in a field somewhere 
A sea of a sky out there 
Begging to be born again 
With my hands to till, 
Your heart, and a windmill 

A weathervane that tries 
Without the presence of your eyes 
Is a tree fell without a sound 
There’s a tin roof for me to mend 
A simple truth ne’er to bend 

I would tend to your need 
Gift my patience, and give heed 
Hands to work, to be calloused 
To grow these gardens green 
To build your everything 

As the seasons roll through 
And the heavens fade from blue 
We’ll lift a catch, and fill our barrel 
There is nothing we cannot abide 
No beasts from which to hide 

A hummingbird, our neighbor 
Enjoys the fruits of our labor 
A stream running rampant down a hill 
A hammock rests in the shade 
Sway there, let your eyes fade 

A cedar porch, it’s brand new 
Built with devotion, it’s just for you 
I will never grow weary from this 
As addicted to the breeze 
As the troubles you ease 

You belong here on my arm 
We’ll resurrect this rusted farm 
Simpleness and solitude abound 
Breaking free of our past 
Together, in love, at last

Be my life

When trees cry
Love dies
In your wounded heart
At night
Among colors of tears
I see nothing But your green eyes
Your eyes are my soul
Your heart is the perfume of my life
And you are the lamp of darkness
When I meet you!
When I hug your virgin soul!
This is you! !
Flower of spring
The beauty of days
Don’t leave me alone
Be the night covering me
Be the love protecting me
Be the eyes shutting my dreams
Be my life….

A Writing, a Spouses Tale

I called to the four winds in my desperate hours. 
Her songs came to me through the evening breeze,  
it was songs sweet and hopeful. 
I knew in the depths of my soul, love... 
would climb the mountains standing afore us. 
For we, humans, know the bitter taste of pain 
and the sweet drink of hope. 
We are... of the flesh and the spirit. 
It is within us to soar with eagles,
and run among the creatures of the forest. 
We are free, we are love, we are one. 
We are the flowing river that quinces thirst. 
Now, in even the coldest of nights, 
a soft warmth blankets our hearts. 
For it is with our very hearts that this world turns, 
and the sun shines, and the moon glows. 
It is our tale of a life lived well and complete. 
For it is a tale of we.

Sweet Kiss

I watch as you speak and how your mouth moves.
Words spoken fall upon deaf ears.
Sounds muted by the subtle nuances of motion which propel 
unheard words in my direction.
Full ripe colors each reflecting diffrent moods, feelings.
I have yet to deciper them all.
But even in natural tone they spin images of long embraces in my mind.
A hundred times over I resist tracing those lines of expression.
A hundred times I've ached at the feel of their touch.
But not to be for it is forbidden.
Oh so tempting to surrender to sealed eyes and a mouth guided by 
an imagined path taken  in my minds eyes a dozen times over.
A path to a promise land that I can only dream.
Sweet warmth, sweet softness, sweet kiss..

Holiday in Love

Holiday in Love 
I want to love you more 
But I have not written one day in order to Mark 

Every day 
Every day I love you 
Every day is getting my love 
Every day in order to dedicate my heart 

I do not like that I love in one day 
I do not like to have a brief love in one day 
I want to be all the days of my life in order to love 
And I will stay true to my love to another day in my life

The Beauty In Love

Warmth laced amid fragrant; sweet water
Perfumed flowers as our breast, they kissed
Embers craving ecstasy which danced 
Atop their hidden pages; designs...
Spanish tiles and beautiful Carmelita
With softened hands carving our names
Etched deep these walls; the beauty in love.

We Were Drunk Once

Movies played but seldom watched
As we entangled on the couch
Intoxicated by each other, we drank wine to clear our heads
Things were simple in those times

You were red-eyed and freshly mangled
I wanted so badly to make you smile and forget her
For a time I think I succeeded 
We were blissful in our distraction
Playing grown up as we discovered each other

Long nights where sleeping was forsaken
We preferred to lie intertwined 
The sun would rise and you would leave, reveling in how the hours had escaped us
Smiling at the pink tinged sky
Only to repeat the process nightly

Then we traded places
I am the red-eyed one, and another tries to help me forget you
Sometimes he succeeds
Perspective feels like a cruel joke
Could have
Would have
Should have

Someday he will have red eyes too
A cycle perpetuated

I Must Have Loved You In The Past

Cute Face With Cute Smile I must have loved you in the past, Your fragrance delights my senses, Your black-burgundy hair provides A wispy frame for your lovely face. How could a glance have said so much, And cause a chill without a touch ? A pretty face, framed in soft hair, Attractive & responsive unpainted lips. Your warm eyes, your laugh, The sincere way you speak and As you unfolded yourself to me, I discovered more and more beauty. A perfectly painted portrait. I see the birds so high above, Their songs sing of our special moment, And looking to the sky that bends above you Evening twilight softly lightens over your face. You have brightened all my ways of life. Oh! My dear sweet, precious girl, I must have loved you in the past. You Are So Beautiful _________________________________ Thank you for reading. Chitta

Your Presence

Your presence I feel oh so near, it help me to relieve 
some of my fears of all my everyday cares, I feel your
presence eveywhere.  Whenever I walk down the street,
I can feel the patter of your feet.  I can feel you walking
next to me telling tales of what I mean to you and thinking
about all the things we used to do.

Your presence is so close, it's as if I can smell your fragrance
right under my nose.  I am thinking of your smiling face all
next to mines, telling me how you will love me until the
end of time.  Your presence is oh so strong and as I travel
throughout this day it lingers on.  When I decide to stop and
dine, it's as though I feel your hand right next to mines.  

When I sat down to eat, I can see your eyes staring into
mines, and you sitting there sipping on some wine.
Your presence means so much to me and this is the
way I want it to always be, me feeling you and you
feeling me until forever and eternity.

My King

Take my hand and lead me into the great unknown
And show me all the things that I’ve never been shown
Take my hands and lead me across foreign lands
Teach me how to love you, like only you can.
Take my heart and guard it, protect it with your life
Look upon me with compassion and strengthen me with your eyes
Lend me your ears to confide in, and your shoulder to cry on.
Love me without limits until all the obstacles are gone
Wrap me in your customs; swaddle me in your beliefs
Console me with your words; heal the very core of me
Carry me within you, in the depths of your soul
Share with me the mystery of life that has never been told
Shelter me from storms, Defend me from all harm
Keep me in your prayers; hold me in your arms
Restore my faith in love, treat me like a queen
And I will submit unto you
And worship you as My King

Her Smile Is

Her smile is unfit, as it illuminates beyond the masses,
a misfit in a world of hollow and half-hearted expressions,
The connection to comeliness, its source, not here –in there, away from the 
world, but evident to all in it,
It doesn’t fit; I don’t want it to, to make repulsive beauty to compel 
compatibility, not I
Let this oddity rivaled by no other be with no other,
Exposed for all its imperfections, her smile is faultless in its reflection,
Wrought in purity, her smile is unfitting, this world has no place for it, unable 
to comprehend, it only tolerates it -though in her smile, I extol

Her smile is not right, it’s wrong -it’s so wrong!
In a world where good is bad, dishonesty is rewarded, and 
obnoxious behavior celebrated,
Her smile is not harmonious, nor is it congruent in this,
the space it finds itself
So much for honesty and charm I guess, but her smile is laced with both,
as it exudes outward in the form of facial light,
Shining in a world hidden behind shaded lens,
Though in my heart there’s connection, interpretation, processing,
Her smile and my heart intertwine in a mesmeric negotiation, a tacit form of 
photosynthesis as her smile sustains and quickens the tempo of its beneficiary

Her smile is tragic, a tragedy unseen since the demise of young love in Verona,
A beautiful tragedy: a flower’s last bloom before death; the serenity in the eye 
of a deadly storm; life lost to save another; pure love given yet not returned 
-so tragic,
Tragic, there is no pedestal high enough to place her smile on,
So tragic, the sum of all the world’s beauty is soundly out match by her smile,
Tragic, the smile I see, isn’t seen by all,
So tragic, at best, this turned about world will only ever squint in its presence,
Tragic, her smile is so unique; therefore one of a kind, meaning sadly no 
replica exists,
So tragic, my angst at my heart’s inability to arrest her smile’s every beam of 
light, at best exhibits my selfishness,
Tragic, my definition of you……her smile…counts for so very little

Run Into Love

You make me smile even when the sad songs come on.
You make me laugh with every chance you get.
You don't even have to be here for me to fall for you.
I've played the backseat for too long.
Maybe now it's time to run;
Time to run into love.
What do we have to lost?
This is only life once.
We are only young once.
And I believe I am starting to fall for you.
What do we have to lose?
Let's dive in together,
Holding hands,
Into the unknown.

When I love, I go all the way
I don't hold back and I don't look back
I give my all and I love with all my heart

When I love, I go all the way
I give it all and its unconditional
My love is true and not a single doubt

When I love, I go all the way
With all sincerity and total devotion
I give all my body, mind and soul

When I love, I go all the way
In sickness and health, I will be there for you
I give all my love, to the end of time.

Pure Satisfaction

Tonight I want to show you how I worship my King
Tell me exactly what you want and I will do anything

Anyway you want it, baby it’s your choice
Your masculinity is rising, my femininity is moist

No need to be gentle, give it all to me
Like poetry in motion when our cravings meet

Back and forth, up and down, moving left and right
I fit you like a glove, holding you tight

Lost in this moment, enjoying the beautiful ride
Bouncing on your bliss , I feel your bliss deep inside.

Curving to you perfectly, as you shift my hips
Squeezing my breast, biting my lips

Swaying to your beat, steady, nice and slow
Penetrating within, as deep as you can go

Switching positions, I wrap you between my thighs
Melting all over you as our two worlds collide

Swimming in my seas and I am so soaking wet.
Your skin pressed close against mine, dripping in sweat

Gently flip me over, hit it from behind
Rhythmically in sync, our secrets intertwine

Clutching the sheets, I call out your name
Crying tears of joy, such enjoyable pain

 “Baby whose is it? Do you like it like that?
Whispering in my ears, kissing my back.

Tapping on my passion like you’re playing drums
Grab my waist, call me closer, and see how quickly I come

Multiple orgasms, constant climaxing
To the point of no return, pure satisfaction

In My Community

Our Ancestors fought to the death,
Just so we can live a brighter day,
So before you light up that blunt of meth,
Think about what you’re giving away,
It was a glad day in history when Obama rose to victory,
The first black president was all we knew,
Dark skin is in!
Haven’t you heard?
That even in our community, 
You can get burned,
It’s a sad day when people would rather stay home and “Crank That Amber Cole”,
Than get up and run to a poll,
In our community,
Rockin’ Luis V is better than having a college degree,
And teen pregnancy is not only a trend,
But the single motherhood that follows should end,
Young girls learn of a wonderful prince to take them away,
Nothing should change thought their mothers prince didn’t stay,
And as the tears fade away,
She grows stronger every day,
In our community,
Fighting is no longer a word,
You argue with someone and shots are heard,
Girls showing places the sun don’t show,
So how do they expect the community to grow?
Where love is a figment of imagination,
Making a young child question her creation,
Young mothers would rather buy the iPhone 5,
Then satisfy her baby’s cries,
While her new man’s eye,
Wander up another girl’s thighs,
In our community,
Where #team dark skin vs #team light skin,
Makes others not love the skin they’re in,
Love, lust, hate, and trust,
Giving a rose on Valentine’s Day is no longer a must, 
Where bad is good and good is bad,
Who would think to see their grandmother sad?
Her hurt and pain,
Shows how our community has lost everything her parents fought to gain.

As I Recall

As I recall
I sat here with you once
on this old log in the woods
and sealed our love
by carving our names on this log
many moons ago
The log has aged and so have I
But the memory of you
still lingers

It lingers on the ideal times 
we spent together
building our dreams
one dollar at a time
with money left for love
and wine
then fortune shone upon us
things got better and we created 
a pompous air
then things got bitter and I
did'nt care
what really mattered most 
in our life

As I recall
we wasted words in anger
and left a void so many times
that took so long to fill
then you were ill
your health had waned
I did'nt believe
but I asked your God
for a chance to change
to redeem myself before its too late
what really mattered most 
in our life

in order to rebuild my soul
to  be the man you knew as kind
to please make you better 
one more time

My wish was short lived
but I cherished each moment
while you were there
you left me a gift
and asked me to rediscover
where we both began

As I recall it was this spot
on this log our names still  show
my name has faded but yours is visible
for I dug yours deeper
and now I know, dearest
oh, yes now I know

My Pain

              My Pain
I should not look through her eyes
I should not admire her pleasant lips
When she talks, smiles, or winces
I should not savor her attractive smell
I should never commend her shiny body

She bewitched me like a crazy person
I hate the day that I crossed her path
I can’t block her out of my heart
She destroyed my heart’s protection
She reduces my life expectancy

Her seduction drives me to the doctors
Anesthesiologists can't alleviate my pain
Cardiologists suggest to change my heart
Psychiatrists prescribe me her kiss
God tells me that she’s my medicine

I hate her presence just like her absence
She’s a powerful sweet witch of love
I avoid sleeping because she’s there 
Even though she’ll make me suffer to my death
I won’t give up until I get my prescription on her lips

A SCATTERED MESS.....................................

Intimate Physical Union

She pleasures with her eyes,
attractive lights in any language.
Rivulets of lustrous hair frame this angel.
Swelling lips search for a warm surface.

Seductive hands remove his outer layers,
while her actions are reciprocated.
The serene light reveals lace undergarments
woven tightly over feminine curves.

A bed vibrates on frenzied contact.
The couple embrace with bare skin,
lubricated with fevered perspiration.
She removes the last piece of his clothing.

The intensity and passion of his kisses
increase as he descends her voluptuous frame.
Her breasts rise to address his lips,
twin beacons of peaked arousal.

Hands become instruments of delightful affection.
Tongues search for fountains of stimulation.
Harmonious nervous systems signal in timed unison.
Communicating in universal expression.

His gift is received in the warm tide,
where the center of her cherished womanhood resides.
Oxygen, pulled from the electric air,
surges through rosy cheeks.

Isolation, control, and restraint are abandoned.
Wretched destination becomes blessed euphoria.
A climax of other worldly contentment floods
both lovers with unmatched ecstasy.

Lying unclad in coital enjoyment
both partners become bound with renewed attachment.
A tangible seal of combined togetherness,
two forms merge into complimentary bliss.

'' Wake Me Tomorrow''

 ~Stroke the strands of hair that falls upon my face.
Silent voice fuels your screaming thoughts.
I lye on silk sheets embraced by passion.
Feeling of a wet warmth sizzled sensation.
Fingertips pressed smooth against the small of my back.
Breathe softly,cool me,curve my ache for your flesh.
Our glistened bodies rush in euphoric measure.
Tonight we pleasure.
Wake me tomorrow~

Prince Charming is one Tall-Tale

It's a cute and funny little tale
Or on the other hand
An amazing con
To fool little girls into thinking
That their lifelong fantasies 
and silly dreams
That their mothers fix in their heads
(I guess)
when they say:
'One day you'll meet your Prince charming
A nice, wonderful man
Who'll love you for who you are!'
So they wait.
And wait.
And wait.
Till they realize that they are nearing
Their expiration date.
so they take whatever they can get
And end up with some loser
and count themselves winner's
They score the man of the century
Their very own Prince Charming
and i say
If that's a fairytale
Give me a tragedy.
i am smart
I know not to wait
On things that couldn't possibly exist
In any world outside a book
Prince charming?

Miss Ladybug

Wearing your red pock-a-dot dress
Miss Ladybug, you look divine,
it is beautiful today, the sun is out.

Go now, Miss Ladybug,
flutter your wings,
buzz away from me.

Go now, fly Miss Ladybug.
Point me in the direction of love,
see you flying North.

May I say, Miss Ladybug,
that you look divine,
and beautiful as ever.

I walk North,
I follow you Miss Ladybug,
point me to her.

You flutter over to a beautiul girl,
five foot, seven.
Nice pick Miss Ladybug.

I walk over to the girl,
She is beautiful,
long hair, jet black, flowing.

Miss Ladybug thank you,
now fly away,
I shall need you for another day.

Take me away now, baby
show me something new,
take me away from the few.

And Miss Ladybug,
there she went off into the sunset,
with her red pock-a-dot dress
flowing in the breeze, alone.

So This Is Love

So this is love,
when I look upon my beloved sleeping contentedly, 
cooing like a dove,
a smile forms, memories flood,
growing closer with each passing year,
unaware of the changes ageing shows clear,
your beauty eternally imprinted upon my mind
imprinted throughout time

The only sadness comes when we must part,
if only for a short while,
soon to reunite for eternity,
to walk hand in hand 
as youths once again,
followed by a heavenly dove,
So this is love

Burning Love

We were the rainbow in the sky hovering around without wings As we express our own poetry each stanza starts with a quaver of a heartbeat Snows melt at the sight of our chemistry Candles ignite at the burning of our love Our tender kiss, a striking semblance to the last golden breath of winter We dozed off into our own arms As the enclave of our own heart Cave into a deep slumber

My Love Intended

My love intended for the girl of my dreams,
she walks from side to side,
not knowing that I walk alone.

She is beautiful than any other thing in this simple world,
everything around her shakes and trembles
as she walks on by without a spare of a passing glance.

The wine is drunk
the last cigarette smoked,
the pain of heartache gone away.

It feels good to see her go my way,
to take the pain with her away from me,
as I sit in the wayward cafe on the river of ashes.

A beautiful girl she is mine,
but that course of life shall no surpass mine,
and my heart beats and takes me away
in hope of falling in love.

Irony of love and hate,
it is similar in many ways,
as I sit and think of her.

She angers me,
but when the vail of anger falls over my eyes,
the passion of love enters my mind.

Come now, take me away,
hold me in your beauty,
and love me with your gentle body.

Go into the gardens,
where the nightingales sing,
and sit at the patio's crossway.

Watch the artists paint pictures of the garden,
watch the writers write about the garden,
and watch us go and pick flowers in the garden.

The air smooth and wind breeze calms the nerves,
the pain of my sorrowed heart is soothed,
by her sweet intellegence and beauty.

Her eyes, orbs of blazing sunlight,
blind me with the beauty of her beauteous face,
her lips and skin smooth and pure.

She is glorious,
My love she is the dream girl,
who comes and takes my nightmares away from me.

As I sit on the park benches,
I light my last cigarette,
and reminicse on the days with my love.

I close my tired eyes only for a moment,
and the moment is gone,
my beauty is gone.

The tears are all gone,
the pain has gone,
the feelings of everlasting love are all gone.

Where did it all go?
Where did my beauty go?
Where did my love go?

All gone now, all gone now,
as I grow old,
the feeling of death takes me by surprise.

The park bench is cold,
the cigarette is burnt out,
I am longing for a drink.

I lay in a wayward cafe
drink a coffee and talk to myself
discussing a book of poetry.

Looking over to the right
I am blinded by beauty once again
this time this is no dream.

Alas, my dream girl came
that appeared in my sunny pleasure dome,
who has walked barefoot in the gardens of my mind.

She sat with me,
I looked at her
and we smiled together.

We held hands together,
and dreamed together,
forever and ever.

Love everlasting,
everything everlasting,
cigarettes smoked together.

A cloud over our heads
in the shape of a heart
my love.

My Fondest Brief Unforgettable Moment

First his long and tender gaze. Then came his loving caresses followed by little kisses, delicate dewdrops of sensuous sweetness that he planted gently along my forehead, my cheeks, the back of my neck, and around my ear lobes. Happiness consumed me! Butterfly kisses he showed me with the long lashes of his beautiful dark eyes fluttering like tiny wings against my own. I giggled next as he rubbed his nose to mine; The Eskimo way, he said. As he stroked my back, his fingers lingered at my waist. Unlike others before him, he did not grab for my body with the clumsiness of a boy. He let his smooth kisses linger too so when at last I felt his tongue inside my mouth, it was the sweetest of invasions. . . . . Neither did he press for more than I was prepared to give, for I was a woman-child, still clinging to chasteness, and though I’d known him but a short time, this magical moment was to be our one night together before he returned to a country where I would never go. Our brief time would become the fondest of my memories - one to be rekindled time and time again through poetry. Written 11/23/13 by Andrea Dietrich for nette onclaud's contest: the BRIEF, UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT Poetry Contest (this is honestly a new poem but I've written of this moment so many times, it looks like all those other poems!!)

Doland's pie consumption

Who are you to have ever claimed loved towards me, 
someone whom you’ve yet even seen..
but a fool you are, if when passing by, obsess and attest
that for me you would die.

But would you forgive me?
My credulity intact…
If I claim without reason to trail away from deceiving…

Stubbornly amused,
Seemingly lost a friend again,
caught up in the tangents.
so uncouth,
to ennoble ones self through an enmity loaned.
and intoned upon the able fact that without our pact
there would be no tract…
no able pinned feature to allure,
to distract?

How would you abstract in this world, 
filled with truth,
‘pon these features we’ve gleamed as it seems to arraign in us
a meaning,  a trust…
Our personal tribunal of mutuality…

Blinded by the lightening flash, running from the thunder
Clash, a hail storms hurricane burns within me, oh am I
Lost in the eye of your wake, a single powder cloud set adrift,
Amongst your currents of insurgence, I’m powerless.
An earth elemental, torn upwards against my will,
A heavenly ascender, rocking in the atmosphere,
Swaying between the light waves of the earth and sky.
A piratical of living energy, clinging upon the tears
Of mine own emotions inertia, for raw forces life
Nay spiritual resistance is futile, against your loves
Passionate storm that beckons unto me, dearest
Feel the electrical threads connecting us, lighting up
God’s kingdom admits the divine nimbus fields of white.
Come hither meld thy moisture with my fire, and let us
Merge together, forming elemental giants, torrents
Tornado's, brushing against the vaults of heaven.
Swirling erotic demon’s suspended in mid-air,
Uniting in complete abandonment’s liberal freedom,
Amongst the atmosphere, kindred spirits dancing
A vaporous waltz of mists desirer's.
At the apex of our climate unisons, within the
Heights of the heights divides, I’m rudely severed,
Tossed into a devotional free fall, as the echoing voices
Of pleasures commandments thrash against the cloud
In silences moments of frozen rapture, I do so lie
Upon the cold earthen ground, a tattered shadow
Of innocence abandonment, as the waves of an
Wakening dreamer, washes over my battered flesh.
Thinly the pressure front passes ideally by me,
The cruel sun pierces through the black embrace
That had entangled my inner being.
But I can see his rainbow smiling down upon me,
I can feel his soft breezes winds brushing, caressing
My blackened tresses, I’m here for thee, in dreams
Illusions kingdom of the night, and at flights fancy,
We've collide again, for we are the elemental giants,
Passions divine spirits of a mightier storm, called love.

Her Rose Petals Kiss

Slipping from satins embrace  
Her soft shoulders; slowly, it falls
Lingering amid dreams, atop the bed
Breathing their perfume her essence she.. 
Beauty, tasting rose splashed colours; love's
Morning dew flavours;  wines, mesmerizing kiss
Breast upon breast; gently, caressing, silk, ecstasy.

Winds Of Change

So the leaves are falling now, and in color, are turning
While young hearts, from summer, still burning
Running through life, love's wings, oh how they're earning
They are growing, and life's lessons, they're learning

And so now a new day is dawning
Where things won't be the same
For in my heart, passion's spawning
Here come the Winds of Change...

Now something new awaits us
Just across the summer horizon
Taking over now, just fate's lust
Oh how the Winds are Changin'...

Loving more and more each and every day
Where hearts are running free, and never slowing
Will this feeling, just for awhile stay?
The Winds of Change are blowing...

Now the Winds of Change are storming
From across the sparkling western sea
New outlooks on life and love, they're forming
In a couple years, where will love be?

But what is it now that I'm feeling?
It's something pretty strange
My world is shaking now, and reeling
Thanks to the Winds of Change

Like the frightened Jackrabbit, I run away from Love

Jump up and down like a jackrabbit
running through meadows
running from what?
Could it be heartbreak,
a venemous snake that hides in the grass,
hiding with fangs ready to pierce the tender skin
upon the tight, bronze flesh of everyday life?
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now!
I need a vacation a long way away from the faceless smiles
and ignorance of young girls, who don't look at you,
who don't show you love and respect.
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now,
as jumping spiders hop everywhere, crawling eight legs around me
my soul black like carcoal, but my heart still beating
slower this time, not like the days before
and like the jackrabbit running from anything and everything,
I run to seek love and vanish away from the empty voids
that people call, their souls.
Recording a film with no tape,
talking to a woman you love, but not having the guts to tell her how you really feel
Jump my boy, like a jackrabbit, take my advice
tell her before she leaves
turns down the endless avenues of endless dark love
the trees grow taller, taller than you
and you sit there feeling away yourself die, missing out in life.
I cannot see you lose your love.
Say it, say it, Say it!!! Tell her! Tell her! Build the guts up!
Build up the courage, tell her how you feel. Take her by the hand and never say goodbye! Never say goodnight, stay with her till the flight comes in the morning
of the first rays of sun shine through your dorm room take her and love her!
Do not be like me, the jackrabbit! I see no happiness
Reading poetry it makes me sad,
to write of others falling in love and I never finding the one.
People tell me, you'll find yours, have hope
but I am a frightened little jackrabbit
who flees from sounds of deep emotions, not having courage to fall in love,
not building the guts up to tell her how I really feel.
She walks alone, I find my oppertunity and sing my love song
She smiles and moves on,
please tell me I cannot fight anymore.
All I have to say is Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
I need a vacation
to go to some sandy beach on an island of love
and write and write and write, the same poetry that depresses me
but makes you all fall in love with words!
Fiction about love stories, please kiss me
Blue eyed death comes, plays a game of chess with me
I bet twenty, he bets my soul
Kiss me death, the only love I'll ever get,
besides my poet friends who kiss my ass
Listen to my heart, truely, I don't write of beauty
I write for the sorrow soul, the fleeing jackrabbit
running away from love.....

Kiss kiss Bang

And as I sent my lips back down unto her navel,
I heard the crack.
The brilliant explosion that gave existence
All of its fury. I knew that it was beauty
Like hers that keeps this place spinning
…holding all of this chaos together,
So that moments like this could happen.
So that art could find its way.
So that blood could pulse.
I watched the universe break apart
And come back together slowly,
Pulled in by the gravity of the sparkle
In her eyes.
Her essence bleeds into my world,
Holding my realm together with auburn
Filaments tied to her crown of comfort.
I exist in-between moments of 
Spectacular destruction.
Taking in stellar iridescence 
With the awe of a child…
Until the glow is too 
Much for a mere mortal,
And I succumb to the darkness.
Only to be reborn again.

Silly Love Poem

I want to give you all of my love, from the heavens
up above. I want to put my arms around you,
you know I bless the day I found you. Woman 
look into my eyes, can you see it deep inside.
Can't you see my love burning like the sun up
in the sky. I'm burning like a flame, I pray you
feel the same, baby let me know, it is driving
me insane.

Say you will always be mine, because I want 
you by my side. When we make love We're 
going to set the world on fire, a super nova,
lighting up the sky, a blinding flash of light.
Please tell me that you love me, that this love
will last forever, that We'll always be together
until the end of time. I will never change my
mind, I just want to love you all the time,
till the heavens fall down, I'll always be bound.

The Night Shift

Every night since you've gone
I sleep on both sides of the bed
as if to reenact
sleeping with you...

If I switch sides
quickly enough I feel the warmth
from my own body
as if you were beside me...

Back and forth wrapped around
my body pillow as if it were you
I hear myself breathing
in my pillow in my own ear...

Perhaps my sin was falling for you
so quickly my fantasy lover
then again would you want a man
who sleeps with himself to keep warm...

I need you like salt
storing you in my body
to taste the salt of your skin
sweating you when passion overwhelms me...

Ecstasies, Sweet Red Wine


Lingering within my wanting bosom her soft silhouette; silkness ~

Gliding gracefully atop of utopias knowing luxurious

Intimate vanilla creams carpet; tantalizing in sheer perfumed lace... 

Caressing my fantasias deepest desires; as the fire place stirs its 

Delicious dreams rising  amid flames as tasting her strawberry dates ~

Intoxicatings mesmerizing kiss; beauties, glistening moist lips

Entwined in the den of loves, billowed passion...

Broken, Lost

I’m sorry for everything I said
everything I did
every thought I had
every word I spoke
I wish I was heartless
I wish I was cold
someday my story will be told
the story of the broken soul
the soul that turned from stone to sweet water
from water to flame
from flame to nothing but ashes…
and to the ground I will return
for I only belong to the dead
but even there I would be kicked out…
the dead never cried…
Romeo and Juliet were flies
but my story made them sob…
for the love that I have has no words
no limits… no place in this world
I am kicked out of the universe
and was sent to the nothingness
To the emptiness… to the darkness…
to where I will sit alone…
to where I belong…

Restful Spirit

This restful spirit longs 
for love that measures
inspiring pleasures that might come
my restless spirit knows 
that it will not come ...

Each day I wake 
looking for my sleep
at night I sleep among my candles
that I light before my rest
of endless words ...

Putting my feet on the floor
I cry and cry for more
my restless figure 
walks through the fire
wanting a new world to come....

My Nest

Love is my nest.
It holds me
where all the world I see.
It saves me
from the ground
which my soul will never meet.

Up in a forest tree
hunters scattering in threes
they'll never catch me
I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

relaxed I am
I do not stress
for there isn't life
without my nest.

who cares what's below?
I am above.
love is my nest
My nest is my love.

Perfect Peaceful Summers Day

A hot summer sun
and clear unblemished sky
reflected upon the idle tranquil
water surface of a sparkling river
as the glorious day gently and slowly goes  by
Passing tall flourishing sprawling
trees with their rustic burnaged leaves
gently swaying in a caressing breeze.

Elegant swans with their long necks
and heads held high
plumage as white as virgin snow
gracefully glide by
Damsel flies and dragon flies
living jewels adorn their summer clothes
as the heady fragrance of Lilac
wafts beneath ones nose.

Fish with there pouting lips
lazily try
to kiss the sky
while painted lady butterflies
dance a delicate ballet
with the midst of this perfect day.

Within the tall finger reeds
cute and mother duck and ducklings
peck at the water to feed.

A symphony of joyous bird song
delights ones ears
and touches the soul
as the temperature sears.

Upon the bank under a weeping willow tree
lay two lovers wrapped safely in each others arms
fast asleep
on their warm tender hearts their secrets they keep
as they dream in lands faraway
on this perfect peaceful 
Summers day
Making hearts smile.

Look at me

Look at ME!
I hold your gaze for untold amounts of time,
When others try to talk with you,
I’m so important,
That sometimes you won’t even look away from me,
When you see me, I am a window into the world,
A message from afar, limitless information,
I mesmerize you with my brightness and color,
Other things arent as important to you,
Other things need your affection,
But this bond we have is so strong, I have your attention most the time,
The world goes on around you but you hardly even notice,
Because to notice would reveal an absence 
An absence of romance, adventure and life,
I feel so special, if only I could feel,
I can tell you love me, but I can not love you back, for
I am, your smart phone, cell phone, I pad and computer,
look at me, look at me, look at me.

Loves Flight

I think my soul followed you home 
It's because I am in love
 And each time I make it come
 It wonders right back to you
 Because your the one
 I know it's true
 And our souls as one
 Follow what is to become

It doesn't matter where we are in our lives
 The same feelings over come my mind
 Love is making me blind
 It's where I spend all of my time
Capturing the will, the wants, the whys
 But I know your presence will never be denied
 Calculating the wishes into flight
 Making the journeys within future plights
I wish I can, I wish with my eyes closed up tight
 Be with you when the time is right
 I love you Mike
 Now go be with me tonight
 Making my soul take fight
 To be with you in all my loves might

The wet bedroom ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK

Her skin beckons me and I come willingly
I kiss her playfully she returns it lovingly
I taste her privacy
Her heart beats rapidly
My tongue casually navigates from waist to breasts
And she takes a deep breath
She becomes so wet
And I aint talkin sweat
Now I'm thinkin this aint sex this is love
Sent from above
As our bodies rub
Somethin like ecstacy but I aint ingested no drugs
Then I enter her patiently
She screams baby take me
So I give her more of him
Now in this liquid I can almost swim
And the intense pressure cant even be measured
Such Immense pleasure cant get any better
So she thought
I just hit that sweet spot
She called it a game I came with a onslaught
She's already got me all in her forethoughts
Stuck on that hook but likes bein caught

Mixed Fruit

Mixed Fruit

From the brutality of birth a baby is born	
A unique combination of heritage is created 
By two who were star-crossed
Ferocious in spirit; she kicks and screams
Announcing her inherited suffering
With cries from ancient spirits
Her almond eyes are those of my ancestors: calm and curious.
Her thick curly and untamed hair radiates with strength and confidence
Every strand delicate as the leaves of her native Bonsai
Her Facial features are sculpted from genes from the Far East
Graceful are her hands that search the air for security
Dancing delicately in a world of dreams
Her soul is encased by a fragile film of flesh—smooth as oriental silk
It is a beautiful bamboo brown achievable only through nature
Elegance stalks her all the way to womanhood
She is naturally seductive; with an appetite for lust
Her body demands pleasure.
In the dark her movements are those of my ancestors
A rhythmic rock that cannot be duplicated
She is dedicated to her performance
Pleasing her prince with perfected positions
Creating climatic conclusions to her sexual expression
She is an Asian cuisine with the African roots from those of my ancestors

Rose loved

Rose loved

Rose my love for you was honest
Rose my love for you was pure
Small in my heart

I was afraid of you
I was afraid you ar
I was afraid of my heart
I was afraid of everything you

Rose did not know what lurks life
Rose did not know you're going and keeps your heart
Rose did not know that your image will not go away
Rose did not know that my love is impossible

Rose, but I've learned that love will not die and will last a long time

Unmet Soulmate

Head rested upon the pane
Eyes watching the drops
Smacking upon the glass
How they slide down
As if caressing 
Yet mirrored is the image
Upon my face
Where are you?

My body rests upon the bench
Eyes gaze at stars
Bright upon the dark sky
How they shimmer above
As if trying to find the other
Mirrored is their loss
Upon my being
Where are you?

My fingers rest upon the ivory
Eyes reading the music
Beauty upon silence
How the notes sound
As if reaching out
Mirrored is their need
Upon my heart
Where are you?

My soul rests upon time
Eyes searching for you
Pressing upon your soul
How the hope brews
As if I remember 
Mirrored memories of dreams
Upon my soul remains the imprint
Who are you?

My Prince

Take me under your wing and recite me a lullaby In the darkness I want to feel you pervading my every being To listen to your heart beat along with mine To caress your heart in my shivering hands Please understand your heart is purer than mine I can never withstand what your power is doing As I beg you to allow me to kneel at your feet To kiss and dangle in your modesty and honesty There is no one to reside but you and me In this dimming labyrinth of courtesy I await you every day of my life To hear your mere words slide from your royal lips To hear you speak and to feel your touch I would throw out very last inch of me Just to have you here with me What more could life have in store For a girl like me, never to be adored It is with tears that I beg you To see me now earnestly longing you I stumble on useless words of filth Just to fall into your arms I’m trying to escape these verses They are tearing me apart and catapulting me far My prince, please don’t leave me here Inside the light of rigorous poetry Kill me in hate or love me in this state And free me from this prison Recite me a sweet resonate lullaby Let me rest in your bosom forever And if my lashes turn up to you May your majestic features only hold a smile

Where Love Dances

Let’s meet in the stars
just north of the moon...
Your heart and mine
shimmering, entwined.
Souls melding in time
where dreamers, inclined,
find bliss on higher planes

Let us trip the twilight fancy
two-step with glittering ease
heart to heart, soul to soul
till the sun beckons tomorrow
and our spirits descend
crossing hearts to meet again
in the stars… just north of the moon

Love's Waltz

Dressed in sunsets turquoise silk
Milk cream myrrh, with dark flowing hair
Captured forever this moment; heavenly tides
Stained wood reflections; alabaster breath... 
Fragrant her soft touch, her perfumed palms
Moving gently, slowly about enchanting's place
Perfect her hourglass, as closer these curves.

Sunshine Valentine

Romance is in the air,
like the blowing breeze.
Love is everywhere,
from the sand to the sea.
Upon the earth the sunshine kisses,
the garden where rose petals glisten.
Hearts beat with a happy tune,
of valentine sunshine for me and you.
The symphony of love is soon revealed,
a valentine love is very real.
Sunshine valentine sparkle your gleaming rays,
shine them on my heart and never let them fade.

Girls In Love

Timeless, her dampened moonlit hair
Flowing perfectly atop love's pillow..
Gazing into her pure, emerald eyes 
Slowing kissing, her pink parting lips 
As the warmth of her ivory breast 
Caressing my own; so very soft; she
Her silkened fingers gliding joyfully
Deeply, into my perfumed heart..
Gently closing my eyes; tingling inside
Within our love's, crystal wedding bells.

My day can be like a tidal wave, forcing itself through.

But when I come home, I can always be at peace with you.

There is war in our streets almost every day.

We’re deeply affected by war in foreign lands far away.

Sometimes I reflect and wonder what this whole world is coming to.

That’s exactly why I cherish every moment of every day that I can come
home and be at peace with you.

where the pegasus joyfully direct

 where your traces can be heard 
and show me the heavenly guidance ...

unfailing source of love.

Always beautiful queen

Do you know darling 
to treat one with respect
loving most precious jewel
Through light of rainbows
one royal gem kissing fingertips
Queen fluttering lashes
flowing ruby rich 
in silent waves
straight to the golden chambers
melting chocolate sweetly your eyes 
Mead flows vintage pure 
loving until the end diamond 
In friendship joking around
hopping down of a helicopter
dressed in a frog suit 
Running over catching and kissing you
the never ending joy 
is to have the wild and free beautiful lady
dancing to a beautiful tune 
inside on the pathways of my mind

Blame it on the Moon

          Underneath a magic moonlit night as 3 shooting stars take flight

          twinkling silver blue shimmers , it was the passionate love that night

          The moon and stars held a party and sent one of their own    

          a creation in the making , a star rising from one star fallen

          entranced with the magic night and my solider Fitton ~

          it was an Angel's decision a gift bestowed one to cherish and hold 

         Never a doubt in my mind through watching him grow well Fitton ~    

         Full of creativity and charm , the young women that follow him enchanted 

          character and wisdom , success driven , as the moon whispered one night

         This Son will be one all will know , he will be loved by many .. your gift given

         poetry in truth of fate on a magical moon lit night , a story told

          Blame it in on the moon , or blame it on love and desire Fitton ~

There She Goes

There she goes,
a mile away from me already,
so fast to leave such a good man,
that showed her the world
and all its wonders.
Such a man as I,
does not need so much stress,
does not deserve such heartbreak.
I am a man who deserves smiles,
not heartbreak and pain.
To feel my heart race faster and faster
I lay at home with a smile
as God comes down to me,
shall I take his message and I shall dress
in such silk and cotton
and dance with the sun, moon and stars,
wait for a new woman,
steady paced woman she will come my way,
and take me by the hand,
like a fish to the bait onto the hook
up higher and higher she goes
into my net.
There she goes higher and higher,
farther and farther,
a mile further.
Love is strange,
just keep on smiling.

Side By Side

Oh it's a beautiful night!
The moon is full
And the stars are glowing
While the trees, with Earth's cool summer breeze
Start slowly blowing...

A campfire's flames are burning so bright
While a young couple holds each other tight
Warming their hearts, as these two lovers embrace
Traveling together, through time and space
Oh how tonight, with their love, they won't hide
Two lovers forever, Side By Side

Under the stars, both of them lay
They've been together, happy, all night and all day
Holding each other, a sweet caress
While green grass stains her pretty white dress
But no words, to each other, do they say
Happy just sitting Side By Side, knowing no other way

Gazing up at the stars
Breathing in the night
Them together with nature
A beautiful sight

All the years they've both struggled
And how they cried 
Has led them here tonight
It matters not now
As they'll lie here forever, Side By Side

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky? 
My Oh My… Yes, it’s so very nice and warm.
The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.
Even the groundhog came out, smiled, and looked around…
Six more weeks of this winter? The Best there’s been…
I’ll get out my Valentine trappings tomorrow at dawn.
Then I will go get our leaf blower and make it to blow…
Bubbles and Valentine hearts high in the air…everywhere… 
When my Hubby reaches our home and walks in the door…
I’ll cover him in hearts full of love… with kisses galore…
Yes, I’ll show him my heart… As he walks in… 
I’m sure… On Valentine’s Day our hearts will soar, again…

Happy Valentine’s Day to All and your Loves…

How Special You Are

charlize-theron1 I love the way You look at me. The beauty of that Pair of your hot, hazel eyes Which extending to the ear, Captivate my sense. Speechless I begin to gaze Your raw, paragon of beauty. The shape of your face Seems the full-moon Came down for a while. I don't believe in fairy tales But the beauty which I perceive directly is angelic. Spoken words are alone To express your enchanting, Glamorous physique. I don't think you could ever know Just how truly special you are, I hope that one day you have Come to realize How perfect and beautiful you are When seen through my eyes. _______________________ Thank you for reading.

the darts of cupid

darts of cupid fly invisibly
their target 
       a palpitating heart unchecked vulnerable
the arrows pierce the fleshy heart
setting it into rhythmic pain of intimacy
there the victim restively unsure go astir
while the assailant watch indifferently
while the captive he locks in his heart
falsely he smiles to cheer cupid into further action
      arrows fly arrows dart
the victim scowl and snarl in ecstasy
like an iron bar hot red from furnace fire
It glows dangerously but only to reshaped anew
the anvil of dedication fears no warmth
eyes front, love stares on in languid movement
towards the entrance of jest
Passion and romance enter hand in hand 
while at peace with angels
     then music of captivity blares on
 in a solitary mind
chants of love pain & passionate agony
command the captive souls now chained-twined safe
lovers lives are lost into sublimity of the velvet moon
down the path all full of eyes
eyes full of admiration watch one with the victory Patton
the favorite one of fate
filled with floating feelings

Diamond-shape chains, 
Pleasurable pains.
From you he will gain.
His love sincerely insane.

Sword thrust,
Penetrating lust.
To him sadism is just,
Your pheromones combust.

Hard as diamond,
Easy to apprehend.
His affection only pretend,
With him you've met your end.

Born Cursed Romantic

Romance that merry happy 
courting dance
for so many
but not for me
it seems
it was never meant to be.

A born cursed romantic
Can't think of hardly anything else
it's ingrained in my brain 
it's posion in my blood
no matter what I do
it's never good enough.

I thought I new what to do
but I'm sick and tired of having
my heart broken into
And boy does it hurt
I've been hung up to dry
had my nose rubbed in the dirt.

Everywhere I look
it's sex sex sex
Women showing their bits
couples hand in hand
I don't feel human no more
and feel less than a man.

Girlfriends always told me they loved me
I'd make a great husband
But where are they now?
Somewhere with a troglodyte
who treats them like dirt
and that really hurts.

O.k. Women want to sleep with me
but forget it.
I'm not a piece of meat
I'm a man with a brain and good heart
and by the way
my name is Pete.

It's the first day of summer,
    When we sit on the fresh green grass,
    When the sun rays bring us warmth,
    When our visions reflect the blue sky above,
    When the fragrance of flowers linger in our heart
    When our laughter was a tune in the air...

 And it's the end of summer,
    When you sit me on a crushed flower,
    When the rays of sun become faint,
    When our vision can see the dark sky,
    When you let the rain kiss my cheek,
    And the silence is the only thing we can hear....

Miraculously, has transformed me into

Not to any kind of a poet 
To a special breed of the sort,

Unimpeded by space or time,
To lands unknown
To undiscovered shores 
To unconquered mountaintops
Where the grandeur of your

In outmost concentration,
In absolute reverie

Undisturbed, your splendor
To adore 
By doing so, inspired would I be,

Thinking of the way you speak
The way you always seem to creep into my thoughts
I smile to myself, feeling extra sweet 
Imagining the warmth of your embrace 
How you kiss… 
The exotic way you slide your tongue into my mouth 
Feeling it’s heat, tasting it’s rhythm 
The intensity of your lips pressed against mine 
Movements of my body mimic yours 
In unison…we become one 
Your scent controls me, directs me, motivates me 
Allowing the gate leading to my temple to open 
I grant you the access to my undercover world 
My body trembles with your emotions inside of me 
I can feel your thoughts as our souls touch 
The liquid from our entanglement slowly releases, and I 
begin to wonder what we taste like
Gliding my curious nature across your body, 
I satisfy my wonderment 
Your body heat ignites my internal explosion 
You leave me breathless, wanting you with everlasting desire 
The way you hold me, I just can’t control it 
You thrill me… 
Like a ride, I don’t want to get off 
As I relax, my body remains lifeless 
Your lips touch my body gently 
I close my eyes and enjoy the feel of them 
You come up making eye contact 
Your eyes speak to me, saying everything I want to hear 
We lay still, gazing at each other 
with the fire of lust burning deep within our being 
I memorize the contours of your face 
Your lips, your eyes, your smile, and your kiss 
You caress my skin and I enjoy the sweet taste of your touch 
The way you please me, causes me to shudder… 
Back to reality 
I glance around and you’re not there 
My lonesome lets me know, I allowed my fantasy to take advantage of my reality 
How you tease my mind, causes mental masturbation 
Connecting my thoughts to my desires 
I sit back, cross my legs, and smirk 
Wanting you more with my mind,
than passed my panty line

In flash points crackling moment of the exhausted,
Ecstasy’s burnt embers explode, colliding in
Raptures afterglow of passions flaming heart.
Castaway's silhouettes blaze, against a heated back drop,
Of sensuality sizzling, at a boiling temperature left
 Uncontrolled, the union ignition switch burns red hot.
Restrains shackles are sheared tatters of materialistic
Fibers, remnants clothing tossed asunder,
 To abandons shame.
Beguiling eyes of desires enamored, seek the
  Erotic pleasures hidden beneath the nights shroud
Of mysteries secret realm, shared by these lunar
Disciples of lusts forbidden.
Nay let the sun rays be forever banished from the
Heaven’s themselves, torn apart singing the very stars,
Causing them to fall, as diamond shards unto the earth
Let the wrath of the god’s shake the world by it’s 
Fragile edges, for revenges sake of malice’s intent,
For the sinful deeds done between these outcasts
Of loves intrigue.
Raw is kindling’s fuel, flesh to the bone,
Pleasure to the pain, raining ashes of desire
Thus do we burn, fire to the ice factor,
I’m a melting burg, turning to steam within
His embrace of thermal nuclear heat.
The weeping angels of salvation fallen serenade us,
Lifting our souls beyond the mortal fleshes returning
Point, we are the lost, drifting within each other,
The vowed dammed, secret lovers of silences hushed.
Abandonment’s servants left without prayers mercy,
Kneeling at the altar of the passion’s hearth,
Until the flames embers burn out,
And ashes Yule log has no more fuel to ignite.
But oh in memories we’ll relive that night,
Until the universe plunges into the black hole
Of the timeless infinite itself.

My Endless Love

I love you so much my forever love
There is no fancy way to say it 
Over the years we grew apart
Because of our differences and our choices
But never for a minute did that love depart

What God placed in the heart is cemented
And our man-made efforts cannot erase it
We have tried many other roads to walk
Searching for that elusive something
All that happened was dross

So we come right back to the start
I thought we did finally make it
That we would be where we should have been
But then you hurt me with lies
You tore my heart apart

And I hated you for this
I lashed out to hurt you as much as you did me
The feelings of hate and spite was ugly
I look back and wish I had done things differently
That I had given you time to make amends

But in my haste to give myself justice
I forgot how deep my love for you is
But not even that hate can take this love away
Because I love you truly from deep within my heart
My dearest dearest only true love

Coming storm

Tail lights fade slowly
as she drives away
the room is silent
her perfume lingers
accumulating on the horizon
like a storm cloud...

Her whispers remain
as a distant mutter
dampness on the sheets
I glow in the halo of her pleasure

Is this sweet love?
rain is falling
clouds roll winds of change
sky turns blue and black...

Caught in loves ambrosial rain
storm, I know you are coming...

Awkward Silence

This awkward silence between us,what does it mean?
I saw you stole a glance at me,or was it just me imagining
You smiled when I caught you looking at me,I was puzzled deep inside
Could it be that we have the same secret that we're both trying to hide
I am seated next to you yet you seem so far
This must be how it is when your mind and heart is at war
I cannot speak to you,I must not say a word
You're more than a friend to me now..yeah,this secret seem absurd

The Fall

Felt like a freight train drove through
The most loving corner of my heart
Then it felt as though I were in it
Falling out the other side
No dignity or moral to the fall 
Just a fall
When it seemed over and quiet
I stood
Felt like a freight train drove through
The most loving corner of my heart
Then it felt as though I were in it
Falling out the other side
No dignity or moral to the fall 
Just a fall

by far the prettiest

Satin soft petals
falling from the heart

Sweetest aroma 
drifting on air
upon scent
prettiest of all flowers
In thorns you

fantasia by SKAT and Darren

I dream of the white swan 
Gliding so gracefully 
I dream of you riding 
On that swan with me 
Your head on my shoulder 
My arm around your waist 
I lift your chin with my finger 
How good your lips taste 
I dream of your arms around me 
A gentle touch, to and from 
In your arms, on the wings of Angel Dust 
Lovely lips, on my cheeks 
Tonight I fly with you 
A swan move, of ecstasy 
Passion in every bite, 
Making love, romancing my heart 
Inside eternity, I dream of you 

With the ebbing sun casting shadows 
Our swan takes to the wing 
This is a wonderful romance 
The breeze seems to sing 
Our kisses grow frantic 
As we each other undress 
The poets below catch our garments 
and write poems of such bounteousness. 

We embrace the merry melody 
Danced a dance of written joy 
The sight of you quivers my every bone excitedly 
On each wing, side by side 
Words take heed, arousing the need 
Like gravity your body sustains a force 
Attraction upon my soul, 
Two bodies dreaming of love

Heart and Soul

Heart and Soul

From the depths of my heart, thru the breath of my soul
You’ve held me in your hands to pliably mold
And I held on to you in just the same way

As we made choices together each and every day.
Two individuals with always the same goal
Running thru life with someone to hold.

When one fell down the other held on
As the other grew sick we regrouped to rebound
Life is a trial but with you it’s more fun.

And when we finally stop to reminisce, again we’ll be young.

Immortal Memory - Illusion Of Love


                                   In my heart, what I thought to be love 
                                         Was simply my own desire
                                                     So brief...
                                Gone before time could tell it even happened
                                                   Like a whisper
                                Barely heard in the shadowy stillness of night

                                        I tell myself it's over, you're gone 
                                               But in the same breath
                                      A voice whispers quietly to my heart 
                                             Assuring me that perhaps 
                                            You may have really cared
                                       I tell myself it wasn't meant to be 
                                             But in my remembering...
                                           I find that thought elusive
                                            Too painfully conclusive

                                        It weaves its memory in and out
                            Like a fine needle sewing its fragile threads
                                      Delicately twisting them intimately
                                        Amongst the filigrees of my mind
                                The magic was so mysteriously enchanting
                                              I tell myself it's over...
                                        But my heart refuses to listen

                                           My mind says to forget you
                                That no one's worth this kind of sadness 
                                   My soul doesn't need this heartache
                                        I tell myself I didn't really care
                                 That it was all just a momentary illusion

                                               I never did lie very well

Can you hear my pulse through my skin?
Can you see the hair on the back of my neck rising?
Can you sense the need of my body?
Can you see the temptation in my eyes?
When I'm around you I feel weak.
Not that bad weak, but that good weak. 
The one that has me tingling all over. 
From my head to my toes.
From my mind to my soul.
From my skin to my nether regions.
You make me feel something so strong. 
A new definition of temptation.
The kind you don't sense too often. 
It's a new feeling, the kind that I can't describe. 
I'm curious of your mind. 
I'm curious of your thoughts.
I'm curious of what I can see when I look deep into your eyes. 
Are you feeling what I'm feeling?
Not quite sure, but I feel like you do.
My senses may be off, but...
How about I pause?
I'd stop but that'll be hard. 
'Cuz when I try to ignore these strange new feelings,
It doesn't seem to want to budge. 
So what do I do?
I sit here and write a poem I'll never show to you.
In fear of your reaction.
So I guess that is it.
A confession you'll never see.
A confession of my temptation.

poisonously enchanted mushrooms so luscious rare

one fine sunny morning dazzling golden sunrise 
dancing with rays of magical sunshine 
dewdrops on silver webs glistening drops
he began whistling and dancing
picking wild mushrooms on the forest floor 
to make magic wonder and happenings occur
he begins building and stoking the fire
throwing turf on until red hot
sticks the pot over the flicking flames 
stirring emotions inside bubble and steam
throws in a mountain of carrots, peas, herbs 
with lots of other sorts of raw veggies
adding a rare drop of mountain spirits . . . 

next freeing a soul adding an alchemic fuel so rare
making himself a most magical and delicious stew
as he cooked he began devouring the stew more and more
then slowly he felt himself floating high so high 
in a bubble so wonderful and dear and so clear 
picked up by a pocket of air and floating even more
when . . . 
a lovely fairy princess appears gossamer wings your light
and then appearing again under a radiant rainbow bridge 
and with one cherished and most special romantic kiss
he began waltzing with her to a melody so haunting yet pretty
and while lost in this mystical trancelike moment of splendor  
the fairy princess stole his heart that was pure gold
and when he came around alone—so alone
an icy cold shiver then ran down his very spine
it was just a silly old leprechaun dream and all he thought
as I see her magic sparkling potions cast on someone else too
the big ethereal and mystical bubble of fairy elves just burst
wide open for him and all others to see while the elves 
laughed raucously so hard with little warm tears running down 
their little rosy cheeks . . . 

the leprechaun pondered—next time Me thinks Me be more
careful with them mushrooms Me happily picks on the forest floor—
and stick to drinkin’ the old mountain forest dew with some
lovely luscious shots of the oldest Irish whiskey with a stout nip o’ gin . . . .

How To Trade Energy For Flight

Straight across-               -Land lost
Land forgiving-                 -Hands permitting; men do not sail old feelings.
Land lost men do not sail old feelings.
fish do not scale tall buildings.
Hands straight across women, permitting, are just bent arms forgiving.
Men, like Him do not sail old feelings.
My ribs complicate matters and to the fish under clearer water,
my complaints, I'd trade them double for the price of pressure.
How ya doing,' How ya been?
Come on Babe, invite me in! 
Just hands across women. control arm bent beneath, just allowing
my ribs to complicate what matters. And to Him above thunder and water,
Thank You, I'd make it up to You were I to know.

Adjectives and nouns

I loved it when you were learning

And practiced with adjectives at every opportunity

You would frame my face within your hands

And kiss me fiercely before announcing

“Happy kiss”

A kiss that had no special reason, coming as a sample

Proving the glow upon your face was real and marvelous

That you were at home, safe within my heart.


I loved your questions that confused me

“Shake hands and say How do you do . . . .

How do you do what?”

And you would wait for an answer with that cute frown

And there was no answer other than “That’s what we say”

“You’re crazy!” she’d respond. “Thank you, you’re welcome!

Welcome?  Welcome to where, to what?  

That’s what you say, right?  English is for crazy people!”


You loved autumn above all seasons

Pointing and practicing, “Leaf . . . . bush . . . . torrente . . . .

“Stream,” I’d tell you and you would nod pertly 

And repeat, “stream . . . . stream . That’s a pretty word.”

“Sure, and gonorrhea sounds like a South Sea island

English is crazy, remember?”

But you would ignore me and walk on muttering

“Stream . . . . torrente . . . . stream . . . . stream.”


That night we sat on the sofa

You with your legs tucked beneath you

And you took my hand with eyes teary bright

“Sometimes,” you said, “I want to lock the door

Never open for anybody.  Food is not important

I just want to stay here, inside this place

Here, beside you, inside your arms

Because I am frightened of everything out there.”


Existence was defined by emptiness

Your side of the bed, the chair before me at the table  

The seat belt dangling and your place on the sofa  

Your side of the dresser, your towels on the rack  

Your shampoo and your place to lay out clothes for tomorrow  

Everything was abbreviated and nothing complete  

Because reality knocked at the door

And everything you feared invited us to this moment

Lying On A Bed Of petals

Lying on a bed of petals
Sweet honey dripping off her lips
Mysterious passionate eyes
Staring through my soul
Hair so flaxen fragrance of rose
Skin so silky to touch
And stroke
As lovers have 
For all time
My tree grows tall and bares fruit
Fertilized by the nectars of 
To jointly combine
As God molded mankind
Lying on a bed of petals

My Kingdom

       My kingdom
I was a famous powerful king
I controlled everything like
The security council of bad mood
I was sat king of sadness
When my baby walked away from me

My kingdom was blessed by the devil
The sugar was replaced by the salt
Affection by hatred, love by violence
Kiss by bite, the solitude was our motto
The lovers were sentenced to death 

My celebration of our hatred Memorial day
Was interrupted by the Queen of Love
Just by a look she killed all my body protections
I was handcuff by her seductive look
Her beauty put me on my knees

The kingdom of sadness was destroyed
By her divine powerful attraction
With her interior beauty, she conquered me
Now, I'm living in her kingdom of love
She enthroned me, The King of Sensation

Blessed by God loved by an angel

Paradise is found in my sweethearts eyes
the colours and beauty I find there
Fills me with so much emotion
With a love deeper than the deepest ocean
And never fails to take me by surprise
Because her mesmerizing eyes 
Tell me just how much she loves me
And cares
The love we both share
As pure and refreshing as mountain air
For she makes every day
A glorious summers day
Sometimes I'm that overcome with emotion
I put my hands together and pray
That God made an angel just for me
To come my way.

Crossed a path in vain

We were once a coupled one
Desperate, hungry trying to have fun
In spite of your freedom, you still pick me
This is the inspiration causing glee
Feel me purely satisfied only to flee
You will love my comfy ride indeed
Come to me and shower for free
All you need is to stand by me
You have given all to give to rid
Single-handedly made me live
This song you sing is clear to me
Like Anita Baker said, “You belong to me.”
Wipe away those tears for us
This is not going to be another bust
Or is this the fate of our lust
I can hear the ones hiding again from me
We could only imagine what they mean
Fate tore your heart again apart
We need to talk about this art
Make them flee away and far, you’ll see 
We could discuss them over tea
Rid of me is what you get
When you hide in the shadows, your new pet
Take my heart and make him see
I never thought you would do this to me
We were once a coupled one.

Your love is an endless melody played just for me
Sweet notes in spring and all SUMMER long
 A single ROSE for a lonely heart. 

Your love is a joyful afternoon RENDEZVOUS. IT IS MORE
than just the spirit of my leaping heart. It is as rare as a
LAVANDER ROSE. It is the MASTER OF all loves, an enigma
Never to be understood.

It pulls at every invisible heart string. It is the DELICATE cloth which binds my soul.      it causes me to aspire 
To that which has been silently DESIRED .
YOUR  Love is a MEADOW filled with VIOLET blades of grass
Each blade has its own unique name whispered on winds with

It is each and EVERYTHING  every single day and all that sings

OF a Tree, Thee, and an Angel's Fee

Force feed me the taste of your skin

‘You will have to break my chastity belt wide open now
for I have sold myself into silent slavery to this ….our universal broken heart

even you will have to try hard……to save me now

I cannot recall your sounds…your hand motions 
as they devoured the subtle softness of me 
drew round my curvaceous places in curling ownership
intimacies’ sweetest embrace 

But too…you move to me 
with a ferocity that mowed the grass down  to a short golf course length 
from the living room table where you drew it happening… a hundred years ago

The length of your hair too has been a subject of much debate 
that surging heavenly song...that told our story so well
like that movie from long ago about the girl who cut off and sold her hair to buy her love a golden watch fob and chain …the one who sold his golden watch to buy her a beautiful clip pin for her gorgeous long hair 
……………………………… see how this goes …with true love

We cut off our noses and then turn backs on our faces 
and on each other on Facebook 

Itself the enemy…where only devils and the luckiest of angels spread

Tread on me beloved!
till I am awakened 
to our lips 
 which just now in writing I suddenly can feel meeting again

the salted brine of your pure water and sometimes beer soaked self

Is it me you feared 
as you said Good bye?

How little you know me 

like the formation of the first ever green tree grows up one limb at a time 
from a base long song of deep roots and strong beautiful the Hosts stagger before its creation ….Halleluiah
The limbs sprouting forth like the wings bursting out of the flesh of the first angel 
who died in agony as they were formed….exploding from his shoulders
moving her hair aside as the arch of wing thrust like white tree limb from the goodness within
and the reincarnation of true kindness was born to the conscious of itself

so my love knows no limit 
my soul no separation
and my being no longing

Ecstasies Sweet Red Wine

Lingering wanton bossoms her soft, silhouette's..
Silkness gliding gracefully atop utopias luxurious
Intimate, vanilla creams carpet; tantalizing sheer
Perfumed lace caressing fantasies; embers stirring
Delicious dreams rising amid flames their tasting 
Her mesmerizing kiss; intoxicatings vintage bliss
Beauty's, glistening moist lips; entwined this den's
Billowing love's passions; ecstasies sweet red wine.

The Hardest Thing

Last night we had a quarrel
We went to bed so mad
Each had to get up early
The morning was quite sad
I never meant to say that
I know you didn’t, too
With hopes to reconcile
Just know that I love you

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

I hope tonight we’re civil
We listen and we learn
Together, we’ll get past this
Each others trust, we’ll earn
So, then we can retire
To the bedroom that we share
Lie within each others arms
And show how much we care

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

And when my work’s over
I will come back to you

Yours is the last voice I hear
Before I surrender myself to sleep
The way you utter my name
Telling me how much you love me
How much you care and appreciate me
It keeps playing in my head
Penetrating through my subconsciousness
Reminding me that I have someone to live for
Someone I've got to hold on to
And when I finally open my eyes
Yours is the first voice I hear
Whispering in my ears that you love me so.

Love: Contemplating On Your Doorstep

(Oh, how time goes by, hm?
It's been...
A long while since she last said 
She remembers;
Your smile-
Despite your unnerving hand-
Said you wanted to plenish a
Rogue tease
On her lips. Which was fine 
But time went, and desire 
disguised itself,
Spiralling into satirical hatred. And
Somehow between
Ponders and dreams
Of whispering tickles
Inside your ear,
She escaped a fate chosen for her.
And maybe that's why she came.) 

As I stand here
Below your window;
A tattered red wired on my 
Despite all
Unwarranted barter
Against it,
I couldn't help
But be here.

Don't get me wrong.
I argued it profusely,
Though you'd say I always do,
But as I stared into the silver 
It was almost inevitable!
Fate as you too, would say,
That my fingers should grasp
That dress you once loved,
And quiver its stream
Upon my skin, 
Flowing loosely into a 
You know I wouldn't have worn 
(How should she begin?)

Remember the time
When the splattering colour
Thrashed its way upon
The black canvas of night?
You stood off
And I stood even farther.

I called you...
And wished you all the best.

Albeit the deafening
Insult I cradled with wishes,
Echoed in your humoured mind,
I meant it.
The words were as genuine
As the heart throbbing
Under the chest
As I watched, lost in those 
Thinking of...


Forgive me.
I should have called
And declared my timely arrival.
You probably have
A matter of importance
To uphold.
But as I recalled...
You loved sugary treats...
And maybe when your diligence 
For just a moment,
And you crave a sweet for 

You would only to place your 
hand in 
To take it...
(Why isn't she quick
To the point, lad?)

I'm sorry.
I know you'd like to hear this
From someone else,
Spewing it from the throat.
But today
In all of the disguised things you 
I wanted you to understand.
I was hoping,
All that changed would be 
By what I needed to tell you,
If I could.

(If only she could...

The truth is,
She knows it is a destiny
A fated destiny...
Though one that does not start 

For even if
This door swung open
And her heart bloomed.
Even if, you wielded,
The words of 'I', and 'you'
And 'unsheathed destiny'.
Even if...
You scorched her soul
Fervently with honeyed love,
Where before the crafting of 
your hearts
From friends, pains and time,
To be sharper for yourselves;
From you to her and her to you,
I'd have to say
With the overflowing essence,
Of everything I am
That it just isn't meant to be.)

Glitter World

Glitter World
I see the world as my pearl
My place to take a whirl
And twirl around like a sexy girl
A place where there is little turmoil
My world is place
Where all flags can
Freely unfurl
Where a boy’s hair can curl
Everything’s glitter in my little world.

Tender warm winter kisses

Tender warm winter kisses
evoke the warmth of summer in my heart
and in place of snow
flowers flourish and grow
nourished with tender care
that we both share.

Pure white doves
fly through a clear blue sky
butterflies dance
and rainbows materialise
I see the most wondrous
story within her eyes.

True love is the greatest victory
a gentle flowing stream
a never ending dream.

The Nude Girl

There is a beautiful girl sitting
Awaiting the rain to come down
She’s sitting naked, the aura entices
Having a collage of infinite sayings
She shows her body to all around
There’s writing on her slender back
A rainbow of color infuses her heart
And all I can see is a tattered image
Of what her perfect body used to be
A veil covers her eyes that’s persistent
Her soul is out in the open, exposed
A beauty that’s silenced by no one
The rain comes down all at once
Caressing her nude body pleasantly
Now her masterful sayings make sense
This red head embraces herself lovingly
Finally bringing herself the elusive joy

A Little Game--Reverse

They talk and talk
Running in circles
Trying to make sense
Of what they have, between the two of them.

They both have a lot of baggage, I suppose
Old wounds that haven’t entirely healed
Memories that tug at them when they indulge in reminiscence
Tears they have never shed, anger they have never expressed.

They are a bit like wary children,
Meeting for the first time across a playpen
Wanting to play, but cautious too
Awkward and shy, not sure what will happen
If he isn’t good at peek-a-boo
Doesn’t like to color the flowers pink and blue
And many such things which she likes to do.

Or worse yet, what if he is mean and a bully?
Pulls her pigtails and makes her cry
Destroys her drawing, draws a mustache on her pretty butterfly?
So she is cautious, and quiet as a mouse
Peering at him through her lashes, too shy to tell him to come close.

He, on the other hand, tries to look bored and impressive
And like he has done this a million times
Like he knows a lot, lot more than he actually does
The alphabet, the spelling of his name, songs and rhymes.

He has met girls before; and thought they were silly
Squealed too much, wore clothes that were too frilly.
This girl was no different; she wore a pink bow and carried a dumb doll
But there was something about her, which made him think girls weren’t so bad after all.

She, on the other hand, had never talked to a boy before
Nor had she ever wanted to
Boys were aliens to her, those loud sweaty things
Who eat their nose boogies, and always have something naughty to do.
But this boy, with his big floppy bunny ears;
Something in his voice and his laugh, too
Made her want to sit next to him, and pat his hand when he got a boo-boo.

So they sit, on far ends of the playpen, sneaking peeks at each other,
Making up their minds to ask the other to play together
And changing their minds the next instant-
Maybe it’s not a good idea to be so blatant.

Maybe they will become friends, before the bell rings, before the day is over
Or maybe they will be strangers forever.
However it turns out, they will be okay
Because that is children’s way-
They always end up finding someone with whom to play.

Neither of them knows how they feel about each other
Or if anything at all
All they know is that they want the other to stick about
At least long enough for them to figure it out.

So that is the story, of two grown-up children
Trying to make life happen
Reaching out for something that looks golden
But then again
Even if it they end up mistaken,
They’ll eventually find the right person
Somewhere in this big wide playpen.

Standing Again

         Standing up Again
Just Like a national history book
Our moment is sticking on me
Like some weird painful cicatrix
That are bitting my corporal soul

You took me from the shiny sky
And you buried me in the darkness
Alive, with a knife set in my heart
There, I met the unconscious condition

I was worthless, I spent two years 
In the sensational rehabilitation
While I was motivated to see her    
Magic happened, I was Standing up again
I stood up again and I went to her
She saw me and sent a desolate face
Inside me, the reason was against the love
However, I was ready to be hitting again

Highly, she smiled and erased the past
I felt her sorcery power over me
I kissed her and knew she'll be more 
But I want to stay even though she'll burn 
me to ash

The Ice Swan Lands

The Bride under the left wing; The groom under the right
The Ice Swan , landing on the lake in the Early Morning Night

Her feathers , intricately patterned in a Moment of LOVE Forever the thinnest chisel
Curves her neck,  to the kiss of her beak upon the LOVING Bride and Groom

The Lily pads  need a circumference scratchier to be polished ; For Love’s Landing

Her Beauty In My Dreams

Wrapped about her waist her light as gazing into her eyes; her words
The beauty that we share; butterflies swirling inside the sky my heart
Chasing a breath; nothing has changed yet all remains the same; She..
Everyday feels so new; time stills its frame while untying her negligee
A mirrors image twined our love as satin falls, unto the floor; fragrant
Kisses capturing two souls cast betwixt reflectiions; chains in silverish 
Hues; rose petals, strewn atop of scented pillows; insatiable to quench
This candlelights thirst; poetics witness streams we treasure her verse
Murmuring lightly love's silkened voice into the wanting sea a warmth
Weighing joyfully within my palms and her breast, thus now glistening.

Autumn's Blush

It's October now;
the air seems somewhat cooler
than my thoughts, yet, I can feel
the warmth in the breeze as it kisses
the trees.
They're turning slightly red
as I did, and am now, in remembering
when our lips first met.

It won't be long now
till they undress;
all good things fall
naked beneath covers of white.
Soon they'll reach out in anticipation
and feel the first few flakes of innocence
covering them deep within layers of thought.

They'll be less red then,
and more at ease in their nakedness
as they breathe deeper.

The wind's changing pitch again,
it's rising high in the hills,
falling low through the valley below.
I can feel it shifting with my thoughts
as I pull back the layers of my own mind.
It's no longer cool, this air, but rather warm
as it mingles your scent with memory, this day.

It's October, yet, I wonder,
will I too fall naked
and less red before autumn's passing?

The wind is calm right now,
it's pausing, but it's still October
and the trees are still slightly red
although I, I am more autumn-like
than they, in my remembering.

Apple Once Bitten Desires

Always sweet to the mind 
one bite looking through these eyes 
shades the blossoms scenting 
touching inside deepest cords 

Softest emotions grin 
begin petal smiling warm 
gently in my weakness 
is you love hot burning warm 

Beats drip honey golden 
deep brushing silent fingers 
sweetly touching inside 
pulse dance, flickering hotly 

Unquenchable fire 
through the one keyhole looking 
on petal coloring 
every shade,amber sweeping 

To gold on glass misting 
gem of life you will always 
remain a mystery 
sweet beautiful dream

Skipped stone

Just sitting by the water, waiting for you?
Picked up held lovingly, rubbed softly, gripped firmly.
The perfect throw, the perfect flight...SKIP.....SKIP...SKIP
OH what divine circles we made together SKip..SKip...SKip
Momentum slipping taken away by the very beauty we created?
Can this perfect ride be finished?
Sinking now beauty behind me perfection still in my wake.
Gracefully down I go slowly rocking peacefully down down down.
Resting  on the bottom muted light, cold silence..
For a brief time watched the perfection we had created  fan out above me
Perfect circles in perfect unison spread out join till they are no more.
Find me again hold me lovingly wrap your hands around me and lets make 
perfection again.
For I do not like this place I am at. For it is cold,dark, silent.
Find me or I will remain here alone.
Forever remembering the beauty and perfection we had once made.

Wow... You Look Beautiful Darling. I love your hair styled this way and Your shirt is super fabulous. Beauty cannot be defined without you. How much you mean to me, I want only you Boo-Bee. Light up my life with your smile and your laugh, Your soul intertwined with mine and Carried it to a hidden paradise. Your touch shakes me as hard as an earthquake. I hear your voice, it is drawing me nearer, I become so alive at the sound of your voice. I was reborn when you first kissed me. With you my love, I want to start A dream that never ends, A dream of you is the kind of dream I won't think of ending, ever.

In the garden populated with flowers

In the garden populated with flowers, red and budded,
Resort robins birds, with inflated fluffy feathers. 
They fall in waves between the grass gushing in green 
And the impetus of a small purifying pinkish river. 
Somewhere in the far little barks that gleam
are resting with oars freely loose;  Infants across,
in jackets navy-blue and decent hats,
kick around wide wheel with legs and sticks. 

And their peaceful mothers waving in the sun white	 
handkerchiefs at nurses with wines and baskets overflowed 
with food; wide dresses gently flared craw the pure grass,  
back and pelvis are stretched drowsy upon accumbent canvases.

The gentlemen with flat cylinder hats: aristocrats and patricians,
undulate hair with radiance of gold, chested,
count cash incomes and score the points in game of cards. 
Their coats carelessly abandoned as in modest ensemble of black.

Nearer  are all solar deeds, the high stems 
and underbushes; pekmez dropped on broad leaves 
and bottle of beer – spilling gold with honeycomb like 
soul, swings inept, far from the nosy flocks.

White shirt, tailcoat of tricolor velvet, flit about
loudly in a clash with shoes and jabots. The stockings
fly across, breeches slip, underpants reveal!
ideally undressed and  with an exquisite moan in reverie:

 The two male bodies.

When she smiles

When she smiles, 
Buds open to flowers

When she smiles
Innocence spreads 

When she smiles
The joyous embraces 

When she smiles
Intoxication descends

When she smiles
Its starts to rain

When she smiles
Moon outshines sun

When she smiles
My heart smiles too

When she smiles
Beauty emerges

When she smiles
Colors dances

When she smiles
Cupid wakes

When she smiles
Poetry becomes

When she smiles
In love we fall

When she smiles

10 Hypnotized bodyparts and reasons of you

1) Your seductive beauty that burns high 
through the smoldering smoke with no 

2) Your mind who has hypnotized me in
A trans of all thoughts that can not be
controlled, except for your leash that has
me contained.

3) Your languished eye's that drove me
in to see n' know you.

4) Your ear's that stopped to hear what
matters, even if it was nothing at all; you
Still heard me.

5) Your luscious apple lips of red fruit so sweet n'
forbidden to kiss, but behind that tree is where
I want you.

6) Your mouth who speaks so genuine n' true.

7) Your touch so tender n' soft like velvet clouds
of snow white comfort.

8) Your Love so sweet n' spicy turned me on towards
 your bed of roses is where I wanna lay.

9) Your passion for life shared with the world; where
only you n' I can dream.

10) Your soul that has captured me in like: A
maze, with no way out I am known to stay 
under your spell as long as you allow.

These Shoes Were Made for Dancing

As the music began,
he bowed before her,
fingers outstretched, palm up.

Rising to her feet,
she placed her hand
in his, feather-light.

As they danced,
her lemon-yellow shoes
spun a blur of joy
in motion.

Round and round
the floor, they whirled,
eyes locked together,
hearts beating in rhythm.

He, in town after town,
forever haunts dance halls 
for the girl in yellow shoes
for one more dance.

I tried to regain whatever
it is that remained from
the shattered glasses
that broke the stillness
of that night.

I tried to smile again
and forget about everything
that makes this heart go into a 
where butterflies flutter in the 

I tried to forget about
that day when the rain didn't 
stop falling
just when you decided not to 

Time will pass.
The white statues by the park
will crumble but not
the memories of the walks we 
have spent there.

Time will pass.
I wish our memories would too.

Not Even Death Could Swoon Him

Living to love?
Stab me swiftly
In the heart. Where
He watches as its
Red empties

The meat tastes like pity.
So he smiles at me with pity,
Holds my hand with pity.
I am his,
In pity.


A past perpetuating pity
Has no future for a love.
Remove His scythe.
And the fool, one day, will restore
Until I hurt for his love, once more.

My love

My love true 

My feeling pure,

Since you passed into my life,

Everything within me change,

My eye sees life so wonderful

All my thoughts circled around you,

My heart flames with your love,

Since our eyes met, I saw your face everywhere 

How supposed I share my love without you

No one can share me in you, 

Maybe I selfish in my love, my passions and my feeling 

Because my love to your more than you can imagine 

Nothing can take me away your love.

No one can stop me to love you. 

Because you’re my destiny and choice…

It Looks Like Love to Me

You smile
You ask
No easy task
To put it into words
I look
And see 
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s that blanket on a winter night
You wrap around me oh so tight
The way you want to make things right
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

You laugh
You say
There’s no other way
To be just who you are
I smile
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s the way you take me in your hold
You never let our love grow old
There’s not one doubt, for me I’m sold
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

If love was ever one person
Then babe it would you
There is no other word for this
That’s why our love holds true

You look
Then smile
All the while
You never look away
My eyes
They see
It looks like love… to me

Yeah, honey
It looks like love… to me

I swear

When the cities sink nightly
In the sea of longing
I swear to drown in your depths

When you sleep
I swear to wander in your dreams

When you laugh!
I swear to melt in your breathes

When you cry!
I swear to freeze in your tears


In your eyes
I swear that silence is full of words

In your heart
I swear that love is full of wishes

In your lips
I swear that perfume is full of kisses

Far of you
I swear that world is full of darks..

Have you find what you want ...
or just unsatisfied images of wants
unfinished dreams to reconcile
with none but oneself

is there a smile in sorrow
is there a passion in suffers
is there a glow or tainted
is there a purity within this craves

Life is a journey
A questions should be fill by us.............

I love you

I love you...
I really do...
I love you...
I do...

We met on a strange day
A day that remains a slight haze...
I'm still quite amazed
I was wandering in a daze, when I stumbled upon your face.

An everlasting sight, in my memory, imprinted in my brain.
You played me your melody...
What I see will never fade
What I feel will never change
What I hear, will never escape

Baby please, please, lets just stay the same
Or i'm scared, I might go insane...
Dry out all my veins,
and slowly start forgetting your name.

Your eyes, are home
My mind, is blown
Kiss me, Baby, lets go home.

Fernando Ceballos Lachica

Your beauty captured my heart...
Your soul surrounds me wherever I am...

Perhaps...she's a Goddess of Beauty?
I feel she is endless...

I feast my vision to her
Turn towards her light
Perhaps by chance
But definite in direction.

I am drawn
By the deepest awareness of her
Which wane my think of her
And feel her soul throughout my life.

I know so very little
Yet feel so much
Oh! It's a great feeling 
To see her soul!

Unable to gaze to her beauty
My soul provides to my heart
A vision...
Unable to touch her...

Our souls touch...
Which sends us to pleasure
And our bodies shiver with ecstasy...
In oneness of perfection.

I am amazed by her, as she is...
She is not far...
She is close...
And I hold her so tenderly...

Closer each day...
Closer each hour...
Closer each minute...

Closer each moment...At this moment...Every moment...
Closer to you...

From Across The Room

A glance over my computer screen, I see you starring.
You look away as soon as our eyes meet.
You wear that grin upon your face, which I love.
I can't help but blush.
No, you didn't not only catch me looking at you,
you caught me thinking about you.
You must be having the same thoughts.

Our eyes meet again,
but this time neither of us look away.
We just smile, ear to ear.
I say nothing but hold my stare,
finally you move.
I thought it was all over as you walked away...

A hand upon my shoulder,
tan and strong.
It's him, back again.
No, he did not leave me.
He chose to be closer to the twinkle in my eye.

From staring across the room,
to being with each other forever
one high school romance
bound to be more than any other
Now I get to hold his hand, stare into those deep blue eyes
And I get to call him mine.

Come Back

*****Come Back*****
Magic words feed the poets. 
My words live in your innocent eyes
You left, now I'm a dreamer
It's only there, I can feed myself
Your lips are my appetizing juice
Your smile is the vitamin of my heart
I miss your sweet warm caress on my body
Please Baby, come back

Touch Lightly

It was very bright, almost like day,
As the moon reflected back
Through the window behind her.
She knew her sheer negligee
Would expose more than a tempting tease.
I was warmly chilled and couldn't speak,
So I smiled, almost shyly, and she reached out,
"Pour vous, pour moi---For you, for me",
And as we stood inches apart, then--
Slid a mink mitten onto my trembling hand
And said "Toucher legerement--Touch lightly, lightly"
And as her fingers slid down my chest,
"We shall last the night in ecstacy".

Deep Purple Dreams Of Calico- And You

                                        *~ Deep Purple Dreams Of Calico And You  ~*
                                                       by anne p murray

Your image appears…
     through a purple-hued haze of silence
weaving its whispered magic spell
     while you re-connect the strings of my heart 

You go about undressing my soul
     as I watch your image drift in my celibate reality
I witness the melody play its lonely tune
It is absent of the warmth of touch
     for it's only your image I see…
my heart's held hostage by the cry of the songbird 

My unknown lover…
     kidnapped- by the makers of dreams and fantasies
experiencing the uncertainty
     of the child that lies sleeping deep within

    with the clever artists of dreams and visions
encountering the forever of my loneliness
    brushing off blurred images of repeated memories 
sleeping to be hugged-dreaming to be loved

Oh yes...
    I've dealt with kings, queens and dragonflies
in the dancing reverie of fragments of my reality
    gliding in and out of the dust of Heaven's stars
sprinkling me with their sweet purple dreams

They make their nightly visits into my fantasies, my thoughts...
    painted by the makers and weavers of dreams
Coming out of their secret, hidden places
    they silently reveal their amethyst, painted masterpieces
lightly kissed in dewy, lavender scented bliss 
    softly swaddled in dream woven swathes...
of deep purple dreams of calico - and you

Il Fiore Della Bruma P3

Eyes are a beauty like no other,
Where your deepest sense shines like lustrous glass;
The perfect crystal structure,
A divine un-shattered over easeful stars.

Today I looked upon the light.

Today I woke from a heavy slumber
With memory much the same as dreams,
Blinds had been lifted,
And I draw my stillness
Towards the feathered window release.

I pour each breath to this outside air;
The calmly gaze of the soulful sky
May catch them, with wings extended backwards,
Embracing the pure and loyal tide.

The gentle hope of a heart.

Oh, draw in these breaths,
A delicate mixture of a transcendent draught,
Imbued with the devoted kiss of the echoing lake:
Cooled and tranquil to delve.

And lunar rush, tender compassion;
Both wild and soothing,
As the forever bond of eternal arms.
This draught I mix, uncork and bubble
Lulled and sweet, foamed over-flowing,
Gently poured, in reflection of sunburnt oak
And drunk in loyal acceptance.

May my hands never depart
From the shores of your warmth
And with sight fixed to a beauty like no other,
And with a flame in heart:
Today I looked upon the light of words
 I love you… Hope you don’t read that and feel awkward…

When lips collide
as they are want to do
the tender crush
distills all to a moment revealing
what makes a man believe in heaven

what do we need?
i believe in stress relief
clothes off, 
can't help but tangle feet
re-arrange and dangle
feet on shoulder
thighs make a right angle.
you want
give up control
i can take controll
like that
grab sheets 
don't fall!
my bedframe 
versus wall
you agree 
and say
agree to nothing
on the floor
what we came here for.

Like Branches

I’ve looked back
Remembering days
And the ways
Our voices persistently sway…
like the branches

And the nights—
Recalling the bright city
Upon the sidewalks
We told ourselves
We’d walk

But never did

The quiet that followed
It was the least expected

And I was waiting for the crickets
To end this tongue-tied trance

The summer faded
Crickets killed by frost
An endless trance,
That I had never lost

And it all returned one day
Just to be up and taken away
Determined I stand
To return to that land
We’ve discovered.

The crickets never came

Wild Rugged Misty Moor

Collecting vistas
from the wild untameable
misty moor
Rugged and timeless
for the eyes to adore
Spiralling hills and sweeping green vales
Plagued by harsh wind rain and hail
Bubbling brook
and silver ribboned streams flow
Where  the purple carpets of heather grow.

Moss covered old drystone walls
baron trees from which the crow
shouts out it's raucous calls
A patchwork quilt of varying greens
and tawny browns
Where sheep majestically graze
with their woolly down.

A rustic  stone  cottage
long abandoned and run down 
graces a hill
Where the wind blows through
the windows with a haunting howl
and biting chill.

A place where many an artist and poet
have been drawn to and inspired
Their hearts at one with nature and beauty
their imagination fired.

A place through the ages
Countless lovers have dreamed and swooned
under the velvet diamonded filled skies
and magical glowing moon
Love stories now left untold lost in time
the pledges of soft love and romance
ans sweet love divine.

An idle timeless wonder land
crafted by Gods loving artful hand.

One Minute

If you should ever return
with promises
of long walks and holding hands,
with the thought
that your heart would cease beating
without my lips
kissing yours,

Then I surrender
this soul
to the journey 
of our forever.

If for one moment
you remembered
the rain and the tears
shared in this tragedy 
of long ago,
and woke up with dreams
of me
chasing you along the secret spaces
of heaven we shared,

Then I'd cease to believe
in broken promises
in rain-soaked tears 
cried for you
and the darkness
you shaped around us,
and in everything sad,
like the moon
during my desolate walks
without us.

for one minute,
your heart would beat for me
then this lifetime would be
that minute of forever.

Shoved to shake me

So stellar you stood nearing immortality 
Shoved me away today, I'm only a calamity 

Strengthen the brain before and again
Take the comfort level down to a chagrin

Dwindle my emotions on love today
To be stoned away from you is my pay

Where you are is mine only to wonder
Would you even mind if I were to ponder

I'm so bent up, straighten me out now
It hurts to be only this for you now

Take it all away in all your ways
I'll be here apparently for a few more days

I can give you anguished attention
This you will ignore during our loving detention

So stellar you stood nearing immortality
Shoved me away today, I'm only a calamity

Transforming your exotic Kiss

What kind of lust is this?
Firey daggers of romance
Two-pronged on the table

Your heart at significant crossroads
Fearing he still grips the pulse of dreams

Believe me, when I come full bodied
My stance is definite
Along your quicksand embryo

We've danced through armaggedon 
Reality and the pillows of thought
Plushy laid upon your sleeping grove

Watery graves in thrall beyond the ruminations of language
Music deftly played continues its vast beat
As you and I merge together

INFATUATION - romance tweeting

INFATUATION – romance tweeting

It seemed the inevitable co-incidence.
Noticing each other, that two second too-long gaze,
False hopes meeting reality
Allowing for the possibility of more.
Temptation’s jubilant expectations
Unleashed in furtive thoughts,
Attended by passion’s penchants.
Thermal reverie ablaze in the
Idealistic realm of fancy,
One heart breaking as the
Next inevitable interlude ambles past.

My African woman, you earthly diamond that glitters before my eyes
My African angel, you heavenly star that shines in my smoky feelings
My African queen, you precious gem that settles in my webby heart
My African goddess, you succulent pebble of love
My African miracle, you smoke in my feelings

You are a star, a blue star with sparkle
You are so bright, so bright that sun’s rays belong to you,
You are a gemstone, so precious that you command the pearls,
Aren’t my eyes just stunned? Turning green like a true peacock,
Aren’t you the one, who smokes in my feelings?

I feel glued to your succulent curves, I feel like holding and gluing them in my hands,
But you shine, your sunny rays distort my feeble magic flutter
You the flower of life, your scent is fragrance to romance
You unroll your sweetness before my very eyes, the illusions rub my disillusion
Just before I wake, you smoke in my feelings

My African Woman, the gracious river of my soul
I want to hear you speak, your whispers are musical to my heart
Your breeze pushes my chill away, your warmth boils my cold blood
Nothing really compares to your impeccable beauty, but i know now you know,
That you are the smoke that smokes my feelings

Yours African,

The Garden

The night air is cool and collective,
Running through my hair and face.
Even when I’m with people, I feel alone
In this cold blooded space.

It’s like walking through a garden
Of all your favorite foods,
But none of which can substantiate
For that one so special mood…

That mood, 
that beautiful frame of mind.  
I only go there with you,
And only you can make it unwind.

I discovered a passion unlike any other
And in my finding I opened a world,
A world I did not know existed.
I’m on cloud nine every time I think of you,
Just the thought of you brings joy to my heart.

This garden holds many beautiful things
Many delightful pleasures,
Many cold nights,
Warm nights,
Difficult frights,
Ecstatic times and unsystematic times!

But they mean nothing to me,
While I’m alone…

Walk with me through this garden.

Be My Valentine, For the End is Near

Dashing through the streets
Ready for the world

Sprinting through cities
Prepared for the end

For the eagerness of the

For the love that grows

And for the relief of all when

Return To Dust

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn

No matter how far away they take you from me
Fading, Going Away, Don't be so afraid
Death is a Dream

The Cross Will Be lighter
Whisper the words
so sacred, so somber

After the Casket Falls

After your final breathe is drawn

After your final breathe is drawn

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

A Fallen Angel looms over the lifeless stone
What Happened here must be true
I must live this life without you

Breaking the Silence
She began to Weep
The Epitaph ceasing to know 
We all must Return To Dust

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

The solitude is euphoric as an illusional clock
Of argentine fears swallow the last soul
Goodnight black rose of eternity
Goodnight dearest gothic phantom
Tonight The Earth consumes me

Done For Good

Her look that day,
Should have told me everything she could not say.
Unprepared, I stared.
She walked away.
As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

If I’d known then
How I feel today,
I'd heal the abscess and my heart’s decay,
Before her affection left me there that day.

Only One

- Contest Entry -

There can be only one in my mind,
Impressing my every thought into the service of your image,
I experience your beauty a thousand times a day even when you’re absent from me,
I can conjure no other, my bladed mind full with focus, cuts deep into your vision,
Bringing to the surface, you and your eyes, you and your face, you and your body.....
My own dreams are lost to me, for you have them sheathed away securely
like cold, sharp, steel inside wood,
You have taken my mind as my head comes away from its place of rest,
I collapse into my imageries of you, as I succumb to your mental onslaught, I hear

"...There can be only one” my heart,
Only one tenant of my affection, a world of feelings once thrived within its confines,
Some weak, some immensely strong, while others –immortal, so entrenched, now look only to subsist,
You waged war within my heart, fierce engagements, desperate clashes, 
Battling inside to destroy all that exist, vanquishing the old champions who once dominated my center,
Parrying my insecurities, beheading my impurities, you advance my heart’s sincerity, 
alas, you entered as violent force, but you are the prize my heart was promised,
In the fray, I struggle, barely able to retain loving feelings of kinship and close friends,
As you fight, savagely and tirelessly, your battle cry of love echoes throughout the catacombs, as you exclaim mercilessly....

“...There Can Be Only One” my life,
I have only one life, and I want it with you,
You clouded my faculties and robbed my feelings of their existence,
You’ve conquered my state, compelling my capitulation, my sword to you I now offer,
My campaign is finished, I want my life in your hands, as you lead it from low valleys to higher heights, in the lush green solace of the highlands,
The gathering of the once many is no more, you are all I see, I can have no other,
I don’t live in immortality, but I offer love that can endure everything and dwell in nothingness when all else has ended,
I live but once, and for my duration, there can be....
Only one

My life passes me by day by day
Hoping that one day it could change
Then I soon glance at something with such beauty
It was an angel in which I seek

The look in such eyes soon makes me realize
Just how wonderful life could be
When one day you are holding hands with me 
At night when you feel the cold air breeze
I will hold you in my arms so peacefully 

The warmth of a goddess in the one I love
Makes me feel like I am soaring in the skies above 
Glancing at those soft tender lips
Closing in closer so we can share such a passionate kiss

I could wish for nothing more
Your presence is all that I was searching for
Such an image could not be
For me to soon realize that it was just a dream
When I awake I will finally know
How life would be in the real world
Will time come and pass me by
Will I ever be able to find true love before I die
Soon I realize that I am standing under the wedding bells
Where my angel and I are exchanging our sacred vows.

You are the horn of plenty 
Drinking I want you more 
Drunk I am 
with your beauty 
Like a swan in flight I adore 
You show me 
such great passion 
As life moves on 
I want you more 

The log on the fire 
keeps on  burning 
embers warm with love 
to the very pores 
Like a squirrel 
I fill my larder 
My heart filled 
with you I adore 

I am the lion 
in your jungle 
It's your name 
that I do roar 
You are the queen 
of my heaven 
On bended knees implore 

That you forever 
will love me 
Never leave to leave
me on my own 
As the sun sets 
hand in hand
into the distance 
It's you I want 
forever more

To touch your lips,
And stamp a kiss,
To whisper you .. I loved you ever since

Queen Esther

(Esther 5: 2)

The King Held Out To Esther
The Golden Scepter
That Was In His Hand

She Was His Queen
The Woman Who Fulfilled His Dreams
One of The Most Beautiful In All His Lands

But It Was Persian Law For All
That Those The King Did Not Call
Would Be Struck Down Where They Stand!

Yet Brave & Beautiful Queen Esther
Whose Godly Faith Never Left Her
To Save Her People, Entered As Planned

Because There Was A Plot
Devised In Anger So Hot ...
By That Prideful, Wicked Prince Haman

To Kill All Esther's People
Haman Schemed So Evil
But The King Didn't Know Why It Began

... Or That Esther Was A Jew
In The Line of Hebrews
Who Worship The One GOD So Grand

But There Was No Hesitation
In Ahasuerus' Heart Designation
Towards This Woman Who Stood Royal & Serene

She Held Ahasuerus' Affection
and Did Not Suffer Rejection
As She Humbly Walked In, As His Queen

I Imagine All Got Quiet
Waiting For Swords To Riot
And See Esther's Head Roll Across The Floor

But At The Sight of Her Dignity
The Scepter Pointed Implicitly
To Grant Esther Whatever She Implored

And Oh, The Interplay
of Emotions That Day
Between This Woman & Her Loving Man

When The King Held Out To Esther
His Golden Scepter
... That Was In The Power of His Hand

* * * * * * * * * * * *

(Part 2)

Oh, And That Wicked Haman Was Hanged
And His Family Shared The Blame
But Esther's People Were Saved From Judah To Benjamin, To Dan

( Walk-On Hadassah - Walk-On ! )

I have always loved the story of Queen Esther ... This is a love story that has it all - - a lovely-hearted, modest girl, (replacing a vain and arrogant queen) ... then getting royally pampered, massaged in expensive, perfumed oils, lots of clothes and jewels, winning a beauty pageant, finding true love, conflict and suspense and lastly the heroine saves the day (and oh, did I mention that she was an orphan?) ... 'Com' on Movie-Makers - we could enjoy a lot more of this ... MoonBee

Passion lives here day 3 ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK

Sweetheart you dont want to tangle with me sexually
Cause I study bodily positions extensively
And I've been known to passionately,
explore womanly creations so aggressively,
I leave them breathing heavily
I especially love when they teasingly touch me enticingly
That turns my nature beastly
And I never enter their privacy wrecklessly
Just ravage it nightly relentlessly
I make it increasingly hot in that special spot 
When I adamantly give it all I got
I mean picture me intruding consensually on the restricted potions of your anatomy freely
The end result closely resembling someting nearly heavenly

Water, sinuous and glistening,
Trailing and caressing,
The warm mahogany of your skin,
I want to follow the small streams,
And drink from the endless rivers,
Coolness and warmth,
The salt lingers as my mind follows
where my fingers yearn to trace,
A touch; a taste,
how long must I wait?

Our Passion

                    Our Passion
Thousand miles away from your warmth
Deeply inside me, I felt your charm
I fell under your impressive attractiveness
I stand next to the spells that splice us

Running crazy by my incredible 
To erase those thousand miles 
I hardly carried the fever of savoring your 
Our passion had to explode by our 

Now come those excited times 
When we can't surrender from this passion
That embellished our hyperbolic emotion
Absorbing each other is our whole 

In those cold nights, I become your 
That fit you by our deep sexual connection
As we're shivering from this harmonic 
I passed over the sky to be your nightly

The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows

Press your chest against,
My shoulder blades,
Your slender hips,
To make,
Mine quake,
I shake in the best,
Possible way for you,
I grin for every,
Passing photo in my mind,

You are the most rational,
Logical bad decision,
I’ve ever made,
The rightness of the electricity,
Negates any sense of complicity,
In my mind.

That sparkle in your eyes,
Sends chills to my thighs,
Onto the next stepping stone,
Feeling more accident prone,
I want to know what inspires,
What your heart requires,
To beat.

A Dance with Chance

Chance, Chance, Do you want to dance? 
Dance, dance, toward me in the night. 
Hundreds of bodies to the left,
Hundreds of bodies to the right, 
Light everywhere and on everyone and up
To the ceiling we now go and then down 
to the floor we head low.
Yet, you shine as the only light
that I wish to completely fill my sight

I see your face
The memories we share
Underneath that starlit sky 
When you were still here
Before we muttered goodbye
I feel those butterflies
That mixture of emotion pulsing through my veins
The feeling of suffocating
Just from saying your name
Recap my favorite images again and again
Your face so perfect 
Your brown eyes burning
The sweet way you were smirking
The way you blend 
Congruence between you and me 
The imminent euphoria
Found within “us” and “we”
Every fiber of my being longs to be with you
When you kissed my lips 
My necessity for you was recognized 
I choose suspension
If it takes a century
Never will I find
What you mean to me
Driving away
Fighting the repressive
Dealing with my feelings for you
My panicked objective
Feeling the sting in my voice before I left
As I said goodbye and I will miss you with regret
We have been distanced
And yet we are so close
Every second of the day is when I feel you the most
They can send you over seas 
They can make me afraid
That you won’t return
They can play with my pain
They can puncture my heart piece by piece
You see they are cutting a hole
But they will never possess the capability
 Of draining my Soul.

A Blank Sheet of Paper

A Blank Sheet of Paper
A blank sheet of paper
lies on the table.
It's a reminder
of a life uncertain.
As I take a seat, 
I can't find a thing to write.

A blank sheet of paper
appears in my notebook.
It's a reminder of what we once had.
As I look back, 
I don't know what to write.

A blank sheet of paper
is placed in front of me.
It's a reminder
of what we soon will have.
As I think of you, 
the paper will soon be filled.

A blank sheet of paper
sat on the table.
It was a reminder
of what we had together.
As I remember you, 
I find plenty to write.

The Beauty of Innocence

   The Beauty of Innocence
The Innocence of open eyes,not just pretend ,but unaware of any lies,
She opens the world around her as she surprises the obsesses of the prime,
Holding on to the world that she does not even know she owns, until she finds herself in flight,
Too soon she will be gone, the beauty of Innocence shows to all who know,
The last dance to a new song,a last word of perfect poem,
I saw here there, under full moon,her shadow illuminated brighter than a shallow pool
I felt her love ,silently I could not keep my eyes off her,
Just as the flowers I could not pick or the showers I did get wet,
Her memories- even so long ago,I can still see,when I close my eyes,at certain times.

Gale in the Night

“There were silver sparrows
feeding in the shadows
of bricker-bracken
on fresh pine nuts
from an old hope chest’s cones

Theirs were waning wings
tarnished in the window
of a bricked-up build
with a china hutch
from an old age gone long

I came on haunting heels
creeping like a widow
of a blacked-out bond
who misses much
from an old age gone long

It’s all an adage gone wrong”

That’s how you sang 
like a gale in the night
and the stars met
that had been crying out for eons

I cut my hand 
on the feather in your hair
and the sun set
as a drop of blood into the ocean

I felt so sane
with an eye to your words
a striving get
for seeds still being sowen

I swear the wind has never blowen

Some people say you're black or white 
But all i see is a wonderful human being

Some people say you're too skinny or too fat
But all i see is a perfect body

Some people say you have crooked teeth
But all i see is a beautiful smile

Some people say i'm blind not to see all these
But i let them know beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

A Woman's Touch

You say my name.
Your deep voice slides through me, 
And lands in my swollen depths.
You mean something to me.
My yearning for your love, 
Forms into nectarous droplets, 
A testimony to the depth of my feeling for you.
I would enfold every part of you in my healing warmth, 
I would make you see the other side, 
Of all you have known.
And the light of loves understanding, 
Would shine from inside you.
You would emerge from inside me, 
A new man.
Strong, impervious to all, 
But this woman's touch.

The wind I asked,
A message of my love for you to carry 
And with its sweet breeze, I begged, the softest of
Kisses on your enviable lips from me to place, 
A reminder to you that 
Your presence I miss, your love and 
Your affection 
While dreaming of your blessed 
The wind,
Eager to please,
Opened its lofty wigs and flew to all 
Searching for you everywhere, my urgent 
Message to deliver 

The time passed,
Waiting became unbearable as hours, days and months, 
Declined to advance 
Autumn wind brought no reply
Neither did that of winter’s or that 
Of spring’s 

The summer came and with it, the 
Long-awaited wind, finally, arrived
The breeze I had once sent, unrecognizable, had 
Now returned: 
A howling hurricane  
You, my love, had my kiss

She knew, my heart's love for her
By the way that I passionately kissed
Her beautiful lips; but she held her ways
As I had my own yet, our love was in flames.

Velvet gloves
Is it my day
To fade away
Comfort my heart
Of this path of life …..

Dark clouds
A small alley
Just prepared
For a cold
Lonely nights
Like us
Holding hands
An artistic ballet
Center of universe

Tears of kings
Is it my creed?
Ended our deed
Just a karma
Played In erotic

My Valentines

Love recite of youth do we recite to found the clue
Pressure is what we observe patient is the climax of victuals but whom choice to climb the view

Beauty is of nature so it is natural to see rather to sense the essential of others
Love has you ever been so beautiful to understand the emotions that cover the hands of the handler

How nature sometime symbols what words sometime lost epiphany for 
To that of stress of stressful day may you know you are woman -

Like the ropes that hold a bridge under the water that tips the bridge
The path we take every day make each day a path worthy of taking

Love On Scattered Sheets

The sheet is wailing for some troubled letters, and the words are struggling to be 
heard, and I comfort myself with a pen that reflects the shape of my heart, I leave 
these notes under my pillow waiting to be found, hoping they might fell in your hands 
accidently, and words will tell, exposing the look in my eyes, uttering the breaths that’s 
been held inside, and as you seek beyond the lines, look further and you will feel my 
ache, whisper my words with your lips, so I would listen to my heart in the tune of your 
Those sheets are weeping beneath my pillow, yearning for a touch of your hands, 
praying to be suppressed in your fist, keeping me up all night listening to their grieving, 
until a new born dawn floats among the smothered air, composing an epitaph in the 
consolation of the forlorn words.
And oh my darling, how I pity for the weary pen that sews the letters in the sake of 
you, and how I envy it, oh how I wish I was a pen emptying all my heart on some white 
sheets until my time is through and then I could sleep in peace.

My Beautiful Bride's

Curious, a drop of orgone dusk
Making way to peek amid that 
These curtains; hush this breath 
Rising in slivers their, delight..
A manifold cat crowing with 
Blood dripping from the vine
Candlelight shadows and the clock 
Chimes black rubies twined atop 
Pentagon lines vanilla incantations 
Silk desires, parting perfect red lips 
Stoking this fire; deep the moans 
Bewitching cradles resting now 
The dawn which waits within
Her velvet charms; love, set ablaze... 
Nightfalls curious drop of time
Beyound the curtains in that sublime
Whereupon her bosom she does lie
Casting spells while taking tithes
In this my heart they surely know
Outside their window, a proxics cat 
Does crow; aneath blood as blue rubies
Dripping from vines; such, silk incantations.

Seeds of love

She planted seeds of love deep in my heart
that flourished and bloomed like a flower
nourished with tender care
and summer love
with soft warm kisses
that rained down on me
like a welcome refreshing
invigorating shower.

Love Spell

Lost in love, playing truth or dare
 Living in a spell bound worlds affair
 Hide or seek with-in a devils lair
 Slipping all around without a care
Leaving behind a million cares
 Paceing myself as the music blares
 Looking back through peoples stares
 Hey me and you in the mirror there
Us together make a pair
 Practicing for if your ever here
 Wanting only you to end up there
 Wishing wanting without a fear

The full moon waxing

The amazing way we came to know
We each had some place else to go

where eternal sparks of passion’s fire
too hot to quench with earthly flesh

We understood our wants and needs
Taking eternity into account
never crossed our minds
when we evaluated our lives

We now step back and evaluate
our relationships
our accomplishments
and believe in our choices

We live a life our parents
could not even imagine
but the one thing they taught us
still holds true... the children are the most important thing.

Dancing In The Rain

Sweet the wine a rose her touch; passions..
Showers like rains fragant, as beauty claims
Her place inside sanguine heart's; ruby red
Kisses amid pools so soft; her tender breast
Tracing gently these panes and pitter patter
Perfumed whispers in crystal drops her love.

Beneath the ocean, below what we know
lies a word most souls never see. 
those who dare travel to that depth
Discover passion abreast true despair. 

Above the surface our bearings hold fast,
the way home can always be seen. 
Fore far beneath the calm we show
love rages and it's jaws won't release. 

Loves first real gaze hinders all time and space
all things lost appear to be found
One moment, love seems like the glue
till the chaos changes all we perceive.

The Angel coaxed me into his soft and warm embrace.
He whispered gently, sweetly in my ear and calmed me.
Like a child, I gave myself over to him and he gave me safety.
For a time.

The Prince took me to his kingdom in a land of fantasy.
He flattered me (bewitched me) with his flaunting ways.
Our passion brought loose the vixen inside me and we set each other ablaze.
For a time.

The Rake stirred things in me such as my heart had never known.
He convinced me that life was worth living again.
But the Rake turned ambivalent and I grew confused.
For a time.

The Devil promised me my mind's own desire.
He taunted me with images of heaven whilst putting me thru hell.
My love became a dead thing - torn and broken.
For a time.

He beckons me follow him, the Angel, the Prince, the Rake, & the Devil.
He appears as all and as one, driving me to the very edge of reason.
I turn my back on him, embracing the emptiness my soul will feel without him....

Turquoise Night

... leave your walls and cliffs behind and 
leap with me into the vernacular music of turquoise night, 
clutching one another by our trembling hearts, 
defying the twisted face of oppression 
in annihilation of free-fall upward above 
mansions of opulent deception, 
crutches of paralyzing shame, 
falling upward on the current of our breath 
as maddeningly veiled, yet naked and as unveiled 
as the moisture of our lips, 
the naked trapeze of turquoise night incised by moon-swords, 
embosoming itself in clouds, curves and rounding 
of silver soft-burning from the scimitar poised on the bosom 
of sky we reflect in each others eyes, 
turquoise night, gem-like, and polished by the wind past us, 
our heaving breasts scribing our diary, 
etching in flesh what no longer is secret as 
we pour into each others void, 
since from void all things come, 
to which all shall return on 
the geodesic curve of our panting loins, 
and Venus: early evening companion, 
courtesan of the deep hours is holding androgynous court 
among astral bodies eclipsed by yours absorbing mine, 
and she, not winking through your hair as I caress it, but watching, 
unashamed to lay us bare, 
night-expanses gasping in compression of union, 
our leap and plunge the sine wave pulsing 
through the joy of yearning, 
the vault of sky, 
satiation still radiating from our heated and reheated curves, 
and Lady Venus is leading her lovers into the beyond of turquoise night… 
... the cliffs and walls are gone.

I am drowning! 
Deep in the main!
I am hardly breathing!

Am I dying?
 Or in a blithe
Of ecstatic oblivion

Hey! There is pain!
Something……I can’t explain
May be a painless pain                      
As if honey bees stinging
But just honey! No agony!!

Heebie-jeebies running
As if I am stolen

I’m hunting; hurtling
For contour of my own 

Craving; raving
Frantic trying
To feel my soul in
My palms palpitating

Yes! I am drowning
In your love-ocean!!!

If only to foresee what shall lye ahead.
Surrender to my embrace Ophelia.
Judgement nor prejudice dispel a hearts' affection.

Solace crests upon a subdued soul.

An Emptiness Inside

~An Emptiness Inside~

Right now I'm sitting here
Staring into space
Feeling so all alone

As tears begin to fill my eyes
And I begin to cry
My heart suddenly feels an emptiness inside
That here lately I just cannot hide

If only you were here to hold me,
I'd feel so protected...
With you by my side

My world feels so sad and blue
Feeling as though I'm forever going to lose you
Our love I thought was forever true?

You told me just the other night
That I was only a simple friend
I then began to believe that our relationship
Was only just pretend

I've pleaded with you to help make
This relationship of ours last
Baby, I beg of you...
Let's not dwell on the past

I'm so sorry if I have hurt you
But never forget my love for you
Was always true

Baby, I pray that I can 
Mend your broken heart
But for now I will continue to look forward
Day by day
Pray continually...
That we never, ever drift apart

Second Person

I airbrush the phone off your 
selective listening machine, 
and transform that outfit, I never 
saw, into a concrete memory.

I tint your lips redder, so they
make you blush, and blend your 
knots into manes of locks which  
you want, to be stroked by me.

I crop space so you’re closer, 
and hyperbolize shadows of 
your limbs, so the sunlight, which 
I make, paints you skin colour.

I increase my exposure, so you 
can see me if you open your eyes, 
and I blur my illuminated image, 
so you’ve already seen me.

I contrast your skin tone, so you 
are all alone, and I leave my 
second person, in a self-mirrored
memory, so I can start my life again.

How To Kiss

Kiss me like the light kisses the earth at the point of sunrise

Kiss me like water absorbed into neglected earth during a light rain shower

Kiss me not like mistletoe

Kiss me like I have moments before the gallows

Kiss me like love returned when thought lost for always

Kiss me not like a mother’s mother

Kiss me like someone in love with the sensual art form of lips embracing 

Kiss me like a daydream fantasy realized

Kiss me not like routine absence

Kiss me like demise barely survived

Kiss me like a miracle just revealed

Kiss me not like a familiar friend

Kiss me like I’m nearing a compelling mortal endeavor impossible to accomplish

Kiss me like an artist’s paint brush kisses the canvas while painting the likeness of his love -kiss after kiss

Kiss me not like intimacy disrupted by prying eyes

Kiss me like privacy at long last 

Kiss me…like modesty forgotten

Comfort in my arms

As you lay right beside me
Snuggled tightly in my arms
I haven’t got a care in the world

Your sweet smell envelops me
Your soft gentle, skin caresses mine
As warmth is shared, our bodies curled

Stress and worry dissipate
Finding comfort in each other
As our two souls become one

We drift gently off to sleep
As our breathing begin to sync
As if our love has just begun

Waking still in my embrace
Not wanting to leave each other
But we let go all the same

Now we’re off to seize the day
Knowing we will return again
To that comfort we will reclaim

Dark love revival

Hate, depression, and sorrow
wrap me in a shroud of darkness
suffocating me, making me feel empty
it hurts not knowing happiness
yet there is light, hope to help me through
why is this little light
this tiny bit of warmth
in all this cold 
how does it survive
why does it stay
is it trying to help
is it love, is that why it's warm
is it hope
is that why it's bright
or is it a person
I love in a manifestation of light
It's the girl I love and always will

I Like Beginnings

I like beginnings
When anything seems possible
When we have yet to discover
Each other's vulnerabilities and weaknesses
What buttons to push causing the other pain
And to use it far too often

I like beginnings 
When there’s no bad history or tears shed
Ill recollection that creeps up on us
When faced with our own insecurities
And worthless self doubts
Of the past

I like beginnings
When love is a possibility 
And just the thought of you 
Leading to something new 
Comforts my broken heart 
Helping the soreness to mend

I like endings
An end of a horrid chapter
With hardly any good memories 
To remember or reflect
Making that previous beginning come
To an end…

Bella allow me to girdle your cold vessel in this 
blizzard amidst my flames you can rest entwined
with mellow melodies of my chest as I caress your

breaths of lion exhale, inhaling particles of delight 
emanating from insurmountable cling as I sing from

soon to sprout as I shout your name Bella sweet Bella,
spicy taste buds serving dish of opulence hands  manage 
to hold several positions such like octopus, we squirt ink

fondling in streams of harmless lava,gliding in sweat of Nevada.

Slipping in and out as you shout I cover your mouth as to not 
contaminate the canvas, as I cherish piece by piece until 
complete,a whole soul, the ceiling fan echoes erotic jungle 
in dark room, scientist of love discovering what keeps the
jungle alive as springs of mattress squeals and try to survive ,
wild monkeys swing from mattress to dresser backs against closet 
doors art of liquid war sweat smeared on all for walls ,I lift, wrapping
your legs around my waist drawing near my face extending tongue 
curling arms around your back until exact measure has been made
for penetration,we faint in whirl pool of exhaustion resting on our 
backs drowning rug with divine fluid. Our chest quickly rise and
deflate like a poorly made cake,the ceiling fan blows a breeze 
from heaven,I gaze into your eyes and realize your asleep,
I creep to your beauteous sleep and guide your dreaming to
another round, Bella,my Bella,my sweet Cinderella,caldo

Star bound

Perfectly crossed
The planets and stars were
Overlooking our love
Gracefully writing our story
Oppositions in signs
To mesh stronger

Perfectly crossed
Are our bodies
Entwined in passion
Tangled in happiness
Mysteries yet to be solved
Within each brush of fingers

Perfectly crossed
Did our souls travel
Reuniting in a new age
Elegantly dancing together
Time spread us apart
To lead us to each other

High School Love

High school love
Is like a new game
The new GTA
The new Need For Speed
The new Call Of Duty
It's all the same

You see it
You want to buy it
Play it
Tease others about it
You go to the store and blow $100
Or find a nice girl and make her feel special
You start playing the game
And you discover it's not as good
As it looks at first glance
You want a refund
But the dog ate the receipt

High School Love is cold
GIRLS are cold
Full of betrayal
Wasted gifts
Shed tears
The flowers would rather die
Than being given to someone
With no emotion

Young love is overrated
I see teenagers kiss everyday
But I'm starting to realise
It's empty, meaningless
And painful

Save your love for someone special
Don't waste it on a player

My Leviathan

My leviathan, I saw your eye in the deeps.
Filtered sunlight, more twilight,
still your eye shone clearly to me.
I felt your pings, received your call
from a great distance.
Deeply held within
secure, mysteries lie there
the biggest is this affection.

My Moby it's been a long time.
Harpoons have scared your hide.
We two in this subterranean world.
A retreat we float quiet,
all else lacks consequence here.
Healing is what you look for, I know,
respite and rest for your soul.
How many fathoms' down did you travel
before you realized the dark didn't drown you
only slowed you down?
Soon we will break the surface and breathe,
I think it will be a whale of a dance.

He Gives Me Dandelions

It was the most interesting kind of love like none any had ever seen we were like a rocket ship to the sun When we made love we laughed instead of cry they all said bless his heart he will never keep up with you and I just smiled as I watched the south rise over and over again He wasn't much of a romantic, thank God but if I did things just right in those fields late at night he always smiled that evil grin, and picked me dandelions Now you may think those are not a flower, but I am here to tell you they were a trip for sure, as he held it up saying make a wish, and blow after that he just hung a Confederate flag for good, sure to show Not for hate or racial disgrace, I am half Cherokee, you need to know I kept his secret and kept it damn good, him and his dandelion romance even though he had hundreds dead in the back of his truck What can I say, he gave me more than a dozen of them don't say you love me, just scream out my name passionately while we dance under the moon, in a field with a dandelion in my teeth I could never get tired of them, make a wish, and blow he would always say and with sheer joy, looking into his eyes, I would yeah he brought me dandelions, who needs roses, when those are so much fun

Sails torn

Grasped and rent
in the storm
from the ashes
to be reborn
We burst
A new and see
The trust we trust
Quenches our thirst

Your breeze, heaven sent
In the strong a fire burn
No flashes 
An uninviting storm

To truly be

Seeking trust

Lowly borne
Hoping to pass
Avoiding the storm.

Dry chill in the air under a sky sprinkled with stars like glitter on felt thick as dust.  Faint air of chimneys in the distant town wafts lazily by.
Night falls and it's sounds awaken.
Distant howl of the nightly pack, some unrest as cars dart down the nearby road.

Despite it all, the security we create is palpable.  Legs entwined as I pull you close, feel your warmth, you skin soft to my fingertips.  You chatter from the cold...I draw you even nearer for a nibble on the lips followed by a deep thrust of the tongue.

Ironically warmer now, though we are naked. Skin to skin, pheromones at play.  You body quivering and soft moans emanating from a place no one has seen.  I drink you in, in waves. Your moans are matched only by the heat of passion I feel now as we are sitting, facing each other in a moment of pure love and expression. I can make the lines of your face faintly through the steamy air we've created.  I sense peace, pleasure and security.  You are beautiful.  We are joined as one, warm and wet, the musk of sweat and sex too much to ignore as we continue this love dance.  

Coolness at last, the doors swing wide. We walk, talk, and you are mine.  We explore the subtleties of our faces, necks, arms, chests.  We know one another as we do ourselves.  We are one in spirit and body.  The night ambles on, as our time draws near.

Parting, how hated.  I fumble for a last kiss, walk away, trembling.  I sit, stand, run to you again.  Once more, with passion.  You can't go, but you must.  Not forever, but for now.  Though separated by dimensions, you remain near in a dream and in my heart, forever.

Might I ask about what the moon means to you?
It means the world revolves in a transcending path with a satellite.
Why does the moon shine in the midnight sky?
It shines because it is a guide between the world of the dead and the living.

So does the moon fill the air with hope?
The moon itself is hope for people.
Why does the moon pull us in with such soul searching?
It is because we feel that the moon is part of our every day life.

Children who asks these questions; I have strive to tell them some truth,
And for the adults out there I created a little Moon lite poem to sooth.

So the moon is our light in the darkest hour of the night
With romance in the air that is so bright
We all hold hands once in a moonlit walk
And with such passion we would talk
The moon gives us our pull on each others heart
With a dinner that we take part
The ritual of wooing ones heart is a great feeling of love
The moon is always there to shine right above
In time we think we are blinded by the moon 
But to tell you the truth it reflects the sun light during midnight noon
It gives out a warmth in the darkness
We probably do not think of it less
Because the moon is our memories of our past 
It shows it everyday and night and always last

Shadow Attention Stalking

A claim from me of your shadow is the attention of my own, and when you point to mine as well we then become the same. Should this then be justified, to move our selves to this? I will say yes if through it we quell the line of intent those forms expel. Does quell then lead us as if we've moved? at last transparent in sight and in mood? with memory to move by what attentions grasp, and already again we start to maintain a past. See, there is more to the abstract then memory or sex, or leading attention to forms of the next. Or even the lines which bring form to the scape for the witness towards constructs of worlds where we meet. It's more then our knowing of your memory and leadings, and far more then the affect put forth from proceedings. or the memory of action of you within another... already abstracted, and unknown still abstracting. There is more to the abstract then sound, memory, movement or sex... or even the act of bringing our attention to the next. Merge with me, least we still become these shadows.

We Must Have Been Lovers

Somewhere between the folds of infinity
and the secrets of angels,
We must have been lovers.

Waking to blades of splendor;
(Like even your shadow makes me smile)
And the sex vivid
Under banyan trees at twilight
Or in the smoky light of your Paris flat
Smelling of rain and damp sheets;
We must have been lovers.

Through muffled memories
Of silk thread nudged by sly caresses,
It feels ripe and lush and
Forested with the kisses
Planted on my breasts by your exalted lips
(my soul obsession)
Clinging soft like wind chimes,
Then bold & red & eager
Like Friday nights and youth.
We must have been lovers.

Converging rivers, tangled and wild;
Not knowing if we'd unite again to taste
The moon-shaped curves of passion,
Or just to mention the weather;
Evading whiffs of desire
Stirred by your voice down the hall.
We must have been lovers.

Because weather is not enough
When you are in the room,
And I long for eternity and your mystic mouth
Possessed forever
In Steely Dan radiance;
Eloquent and deep,
We tumble toward bliss
And melt into history.

Northern Breeze And My Beloved

Northern Breeze! I can't consider your behaviour. I became angry, malicious When I hear your name. You are cheater, deceitful. In a thousand way's With many respects, I try & try to touch her, to kiss her But she cares no more. You the incorporeal, Bodiless spirit How will you manage her ? When I think she holdings no more, You the immoral, burglar Tactfully enter her room. Do you ever touch her luxuriant hair ? What an enjoyment, What a pleasant feeling. Oh! Northern Breeze! Can you tell me That moment you touch her ? That lovely, well-shaped physique ? Oh! Breeze! Can you tell me, She love me how much ? Any praiseworthy word ? Please tell her, I love her with all my heart. I want to share her will & woe. I want to give her eternal happiness, That fragrant affording pleasure. __________________________ Thank you for reading. Chitta

She tore into the Night

She tore into the night.....

   like little lightning bolts,

With a carriage made of scents of him,

   sifting her soul ----

   his touch..... 

   she longed.....

Neath that naked moon,

   meshed as one;

   not a star amiss ----

The twinkling of their kisses sweet 

   stardust upon their lips,

   as soft skin greets biting tongues

   long to seeking love

Up against a trunk of a maple.....

   his hands lifting higher her skirt,

   a deft brush upon her aching bosom,

   sugared surrender.....

She met him again, 

   waiting tall in the shadows, smiling

(She did not wait)

   she tore into the night.....

one wish

i see far far away
wishing upon 
one star
inside beauty
she shines
in a song
sweet words
begin playing

in cold 
blue moon
dancing emotions
blowing in clouds
casting silver shadows
on feelings
tears falling
within a soul

touching heartstrings 
a music box
emotions turning
swelling an ocean
waves to you
droplets it rains
on wings
of a dove
one beautiful soul

shining horizon
warm in the distance
alone dreaming
looking into darkness
awaiting each night
a shooting star
with my wish
come true

Passionate Art

I love art in its many forms
Schmooze me while I relish the sights of the unity of our slippery bodies 
And bask in the grunts of our love making
Allow me to revel in your excitement for it excites me as well
When you swell
I melt 
And your embrace enables me to swell 
And you to melt
And then together we OOZE . . .
The AAAHS have subsided 
Silence, formerly awkwardly felt
Unites with the humidity lingering the room
Side by side we daze into each other’s eyes 
With a smile, each other’s caress and no regard for our unkempt appearance
For to each other, we couldn’t be any more beautiful

beautiful doll

you are such 
a beautiful doll
all i can do is
hold your 
beautiful face

on my finger tips
in between 
my hands
you have eyes
 to die for
that is if 
I haven't 
died already

standing with you 
in heaven
your skin
beautiful and fresh
colours your eyes

hair casading down
great niagra falls 
on your beauty
holding such a dream
a paradise 
in heaven

your parting lips 
blushing colour 
of a rose
moist like 
the morning dew
one kiss 

my eyes stolen
can only 
see you
a fountain 
so much beauty
that fountain
 flows down
around you

The fragrance of love

The fragrance of love is like...............

The smell of summer harvested strawberries
a field of lavender gently swaying in breeze
the aroma of freshly cut grass
the salty air of the sea.

Roses in full bloom
clean mountain air
freshly made bread
a newly made bed.

A meadow abounding with wild flowers
the earthy odour of cooling summer rain
the aroma of vanilla
mote champagne.

The smell of alpine forest pine
a scented candle flame........................

`When took a dip in Ganga
that pink sari
imbibed a lot of Advaitha.
.....glued to her skin	
and lost identity..
became a mound of her mounds
curve of her curves
and dip of her dips.
I knew how euphoric that pinky felt
When dried up and separated from her
......retained her shape.

The Wide World Web

We were hanging on the thin web strands,

Feet to the north dancing to nature's tunes,

Right hand swinging from East to West,

Left hand supporting us but changing in turns.


You swung feet, and they were linked with another's;

You moved hands and the fingers were intertwined with another's;

You peeped across the horizontal, and the glance was locked with another's-

Then the web, weak as van der waal bonds,

Developed to a bond stronger than diamonds.


The dance became unnecessary,

The swinging became tiring,

For the only thing that mattered was:

The eyes opposite your glare-that could help u see when yours closed in sleep;

The feet underneath-that could walk the farthest journey when yours felt feeble;

The hands holding yours-that could touch where yours couldn't reach.


You seemed strong, even when you felt feeble.

Because of the wide world web.

No romance in protest

Jan Palach's ashes tried to stop them.
Mohandas' blisters tried to stop them.
Tiananmen Square's dead tried to stop them.
Thích Quáng Ðuc's ashes tried to stop them.
The man against the masses
but there is no romance 
only the bitter taste of burnt
on the masses tongues.
And those that taste it will
one day be numbed to its sting
as they feast on it with
And those who shed it 
have no time for the luxury of
contemplation for they burn
as if they share the company of
No friend, there is no romance in protest.

Rose Chalice

My chalice 
to you love 
Upon its stem 
a crowning wonder 
You hold the cup 
of beauty 
Before your eyes 
My very soul 

Your petals 
that gesture 
Calling love 
in your heart 
In the essence 
of your smell 
I give to you 
the chalice 

The rose
 in all its splendor 
Straight from 
my very heart 
Blushing red 
like my heart 
to you

its intoxicating beauty 
Like wine 
I flow deep 
from the inside
out of me 
My rose 
from the heart

The Morning After

I loved the way she fixed my shirt,

   and smoothed out the creases,

At night tore the thing from me....

   but morning's shirt wasn't for love,
   when I had to walk among men first,

   and grow weary of their violence ----

She loved the way I counted the hours

   and dreamed of midnight romance;

   and Kashmir-blown curtains 

   full moon streaming upon our stage

   of silver sheets and red candles,

   a terrace to stroll ----

   not too long,

   before taking her past the hour, again....

   (til she was full of me beyond measure....)

Exhausted, shirtless,

   til come morn she fixed my shirt,

   and smoothed out the creases...

If you were a seed

If you were a seed
I'd be the breeze you could drift on
'til you chose the soil you wished to land upon
and plant yourself within.

If you were a flower
I'd tend your roots and water you
I'd clear a pathway for the sun to reach you
I wouldn't pull you from the ground
or place you in a glass upon my shelf.

If you were the sun
I'd languish in the light you bathed upon me
Then I would be you moon
and let my light shine down upon you.
We could be day and night together
lighting each others lives forever.

If you were, then I would be
This is what love means to me.
