SWEET WATERMELON LIPS



honeyed flavor drips
        on watermelon’s core, pink
          flesh sweetening mouths
…a zing like nectar's fragrance
to thrill when popped rind gushes

breaths taste moist syrup
    earthy aphrodisiac
               when melon lips grind,
          … as he sinks his teeth in mine
nibbling juicy midnight love !

In My Moonlight Dream

In my moonlight dream
we’re dancing in a forest.
Green earth is our floor -
and moon beams - our disco ball
while soft music is the night.

You are clad in white.
My golden gown sweeps the ground.
My beautiful knight - 
Your bright eyes adore me as
you twirl me among the trees.

Within the Stars

Our feelings were high On this cold, dark, star-filled night I ogle your eyes You form beauty within them They twinkle like the white stars The moon shows its face As we walk down the black hill Letting our hands touch Our feelings surely brought joy As the sky winks at our love The stars have their love Ones that shined that gorgeous night Romance brought by stars And the moon has its power Love enters both of our minds

Yellow Rose

Approaching her now
The yellow rose behind me
Ran out of red ones
My heart is throbbing through me
Will yellow mean something here

Placed in her hand now
Slumbering daintily on
Her fingertip bed
Cupid's tear drop flows onto
My hand binding us for good

Unshaken Love

Our love is so real,
yet,we can`t be together,
Silly tradition...
Families at loggerheads,
how can love be so painful?

Past haunts the present,
but our love is unshaken,
despite parents row,
We`re ready to break this seal
and remain close til death parts...

Just a kiss

Red roses and cards
Diamond inside the box
Dinner dates for two
Candle lights and wine for us
Perfect valentines, I guess?

A violin plays
Let’s start the dance of our hearts
And kiss me softly,
Let me feel your warm embrace,
I can feel your emotion

Just a kiss from you
Is a perfect gift I have?
Sweet like a cherry
Sweeter than the rain that falls
Stronger than the sunrise

The Seasons Delight

Summer days bring love.
Bound together, two as one.
Fragrant dreams flowers.

Oh, shimmering sun.
Shining.  Burning.  Bringing fun.
Hot sands greet bare feet.
Ocean waters ebb and flow.
Salty air tickles taste buds.

Cooling breezes pierce the night.
Arm and arm two souls take flight.
Like poetry, lives are merged.
The seasons delight.

About time

About time you show up 

About time you help out 

About time you comfort me 

About time you decide to step up

About time you realized 

About time i that i left 

About time you felt lost 

Because with out me 

Your not everything you say

I was your world, and you weren't mine 

So listen now and hear out loud 

I miss you, but i never knew you 

This me telling you 

Now its time 

To go on your own 

While i go on my own.......
