Crazy lovers
Our rampant youth,
was filled with 
uninhibited emotions,
lusty moments,
and romantic liaisons.

We sought excitement 
and flirted with danger.

Damn the consequences.

Those unchecked emotions
have lasted many years
and we still have time to go....Read More

Harsh words that come my way,
like darts that pierce my skin.
I try to push them away,
but sadly they find their way in.

Words that go into my heart,
where my emotions dwell.
I wait for the pain to start,
a feeling that I know...Read More

Premium Member Eyes on the Prize
In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind,
fantasies that flash with passing moments, 
pink afternoons shades of emotions blossoming.

We weave through the weeds and reeds to

I’m with my friends
But I’m not really with them
My mind is busy. Busy overthinking
It’s slowly drowning me

It’s hard to pretend 
Pretending to be happy
Pretending to be okay
I’m drowning and I can’t breath

It’s killing me by slowly drowning me
I don’t know...Read More

They talk so much but do little
Yes that’s it, for that is all they can do
When we used to walk distances on daily routine
It was enough to say things can be made better	
Horses, bicycles and carts saved the bare-footed walks

In the silencend of the night
At night on dreams I wander
Ive been deafened by nights silence
As my dreams begin to flow
And in the moment of the passing
I feel many emotions in me grow.
Silenced by the voices
Of the hidden depths of night.
Stranded in its presence
Of pure...Read More

I met him when I was young
He was always puzzling, a confusion
Causing me to wonder at my ideas
And making me dread my fears

He was the best football player
And had all the right moves with ladies

Writings my love, and so are you.
I need both, yet most of all you.
My emotions, I . . . can keep hid.
Since I’ve known you, that’s all I did.
    Now lost you are and blank I am.

maybe I didn't hold his hand tight enough
"That maybe,
I didn't hold his hand tight enough..."

as he held his hand, as a child -- prayed

Wishing, perhaps... had he held it tighter,

The Beast
The beast in me
Is held in check
By the strength in her 

Raging, straining, clawing
Is held back
By her calming love words

It is a wonderful 
Exciting experience
When we meet in the middle

When she brings out the calm in me
And I
Bring out the...Read More

O, heart of mine! You've been so confused.

And now that there's someone I want to let in,
You decide your patience has worn thin.

Ashen was the sky 
That rejected hand of sunrise
Sullen was the heart
That stumbled in affection,

Incapable of lauding
Ruby blush of budding rose
And pink passions on horizon
Defying darkened woes.

In midst of a vibrant spring
Her garden blooms curled up
Amid hostile dry weather,

Teared-up, she...Read More

Surreal how just a faint 
touch can make you melt
or the stroke of fingertips
can incite chills down

How a mere kiss

can send vibrations through

Hey! This one is my melodramatic mom’s!
