A touch of sunset
With bated breath,
The sun begin to rise
And ribbon rippling ocean waves
With gold.

Awaiting the Bridegroom
The house has been cleaned, 
the hearts have been washed. 
With oil, the lamps are replete; 
all await with bated breath, 
the bridegroom to greet.

Premium Member Punxsutawney Phil's Weather Forecast
Folks wait with bated breath 'cross the nation,

   For Phil's insightful prognostication.

      What will his prediction be?

         We will have to wait and see,

            After Phil wakes from his hibernation!

gold sky, dark sun, black moon,
blind faith, sheer trust, intune,
water flows, horizons haze, darkness peaks,
blind faith, beleive in prayer, God speaks!
eclipse sky, eclipse life, eclipse death,
changes good, changes bad, bated breath,
tones of faith, misted clouds, fill the night,
blind faith, in the heart, creates the light.

Sleep, Lord Poseidon,
Deep, everlasting sleep
While sailors watch with bated breath

Old planking creaks -
The pitiable, splintering sound -
Old planking creaks

Old sailor,
Splintery-kneed old sailor,
Keeps his watch

With ever a thought of life's futility,
Down deep,
Where dolphins stay

But Lord Poseidon never sleeps
And dolphins play.....
And play...

In you I trust. You symbolize a promise.
If self-reliance fails and footholds crumble
You’ll keep us safe from harm. You will protect us
If handholds break, if we lose grip, or stumble.

With you in reach I dare release the tension.
Your solid metal roundness will inspire
New confidence and faith. I can exhale now
The bated breath and, with relief, climb higher.

My Greatest Sin
My Greatest Sin 

They behave with me 
As if,
 I am a criminal 

So, I was very anxious 
To know 
 What my biggest crime is 

Hurriedly I put my deeds 
To check 
 In a wonder soft ware 

It went to find out 
My sin 
I sat in bated breath 

It flashed out clearly 
In a minute 
The wrongs in life I did 

My greatest sin is 
It says 
I do not care anybody.

Truncated Ghazal for Good Health
Organic mystery, bated breath
Known causes, uncertain breath.

Systemic matter, wild shields
Cells in order, fated breath.

Corporeal wave, bloody fashion
Tumultuous fissures, captured breath.

Peasant ailing, fortune calls
Civil measures, alien breath.

Shadows cast, a just reward
Mortal wishes, eternal breath.

Toasted glass, healer's gain
Conjured image, phantom breath....

Passion's Song
I play my song on lute and flesh;
Fingers nimbly strumming along.
My voice sings out with bated breath-
Cries and whispers, the siren song.

My lover joins me in the duet,
Our tempo is sweet and slow.
Together we play passion's song
A tune learned long ago.

A melody of exquisite magic--
It rarely sounds the same.
Pray you to can join in singing the song
Known as Love by name.

Premium Member I thank you for reading my dreams
Do I have your attention now 

I see the look from under your brow

With vexing eyes forged with mine

To the reading of my words in every line

Hanging you now on bated breath

TO seeing it through to find my poems death

To comments posted by only a few

To the questioning mind not getting my view

Knowing the truth lies in the cracks and seams

I thank you for reading my dreams...

anxiety showing through;
bated breath and tired sighs
all the same
today and tomorrow...
just crude forgeries of yesterday
nothing changes
every exhalation breathing out
another piece of our monotony ridden souls

choking me, constricting my lungs
as if even the air is now my enemy
blowing and pushing me in directions
that I'd sworn never to take

anxiety showing through...

Let Me: Alone
Let me walk alone,
my journey to enhance.
Stop to pick a yellow daisy;
time to pause and dance.

Let me dance alone
tho my steps, to some, be wrong.
Waltz high upon a mountain;
whispered echo's of my song.

Let me sing alone
of loves with bated breath.
Fill my soul with laughter
until I lay in death.

Let me die alone.
Toast my life with wine.
My journey was my own
and it was mighty fine.

Alliteration Exercise
When the whistling winter weather
freezes flora, fur and feather,
huddled hares hide in the heather,
languish lean and lined like leather.

Hear the howling hounds of Hell,
bloated banshees bearing bells,
sense the sickness in the cells,
silent serpent spitting spells.

Doom and darkness, dreams of death,
blushing brides with bated breath,
crazy crackheads cooking meth,
silent souls succumb to stress.

It’s been quite some time.

The wind blows.
The lightening flashes.
The clouds thunder.
The dry leaves whisper.

With a bated breath I await
The arrival of the first rains
Scented earth, drenched roads
Steaming coffee, nonsense talks; my paradise

But before it could pitter-patter
The sun comes out, the wind stops
My hopes take a backseat; I resign;
With a sad realization

It’s been quite some time now.

Feisty Feline
The grief that you brought to me Is unparalleled to a burning malady Each miniscule reckoned; nimble spur Comrades' perturbed; peeled exterior A visceral feline that's so endeared Suddenly spent and disappeared Lingering with bated breath And keeping the faith To have you back ...come down the pike 08.28.17

Premium Member ''For Our Remission''
Our psyches form an eerie mood;
we hold the fearful, bated breath
(the melancholy that makes us brood).
We smell the scent of gloom's despair; 
we feel the menace of sudden death: 
how broken we just are to care!

Thank God for him, the heaven's Lord;
our fight with misery and pain
ends with the gift of his great Sword;
the tears of manic-depression
flow down our tear-stained cheeks again:
but now they're for our remission.

Sequel to Blank
They gave me a paper to write upon,
yet gain,
it was invitingly smooth and blank,
even now,
they handed me a pen,
another pretty one,
that wrote smooth,
from flank to flank,
again and again,
but I had nothing in my mind,
that was coherent and formed,
ashamed as I was,
of keeping the first one blank,
this one I filled,
with whatever I could from my mind yank,
and waited with bated breath,
to see,hear the written paper's death.

As the sky opens up 
So does our passage to the sun
Burning Brightly
Feeling hot sparks on our skin
A Sure sign that God is near
Making his love perfectly clear
Showing how the road is steered
Guiding us when our time is near
Hush my friends no time to fear

The suns heat pulses like a hot bath steaming
As bubbles wane soaking your skin
Silky smooth
Pure love
Like the sweet course of a meal
Willing to please
As we wait with bated breath...

With bated breath
Detected overpowering odour ascending by degrees
Rational thought dissolved in fear
Animalistic unearthly roar transpiring
Gigantic mockery of every living thing
Oblique it’s huge amber eye surveyed
Nostrils twitching rapidly to detect
Stagnant atmosphere all pervading
Tantamount aversion restrained
Onerous task to undertake
Nihilism mindfully conjured despair 
Extinction of human kind a possibility

Premium Member You are the only one who burns my Valentine fire
On bated breath I wait forever for a chance

To steal a kiss and watch our hearts dance

For a glimmer of hope from that look in your eye

A scent from your skin as it permeates the sky

The taste of your sex which makes my soul wet

To live in your dreams since the day we first met

Ill paint your wishes on the canvas of my mind

Speak your name in ecstasy and leave us both blind

To swoon in your love and then happily admire

You are the only one who burns my Valentine fire

Loves' Decision
A beating heart without hesitation
and bated breath steadily altered,
my love for you shall never falter.
Joy filled, yet with timid reservation
I’m dancing with your feelings and wounded mind.
Gently caressing your inner suspicions,
enticing you, exciting you, however blind.
Creating images of my smile, touch and smell.
I do, I do understand your mental hell.
As my heart beats unknowingly please decide?
Should I stay or should I go?
Only deep inside, 
do you really know!
