the heart is deeper than that
it’s not coated in Honey
the word doesn’t do you justice 

ah to be loved

Shoved adrift by miffed withdrawn
Some love, one swiftly rowing
Unreal, another wave to shore
To cycle all self-centered apathy
Pillared to a post at most a smile beckons
Lukewarm puke no substitute

See the captain of my soul?
To honor every breath
One swain allured by slightest...Read More

Remember me poets
Remember me poets even though i walk through that land that has been forbidden, 
and i walk in that lonely path
our name should never be forgotten, 
because in everything we take our part.

From, to the Swain
Lest this not the promise thou made foretime
Test to unfold canon in truant chime
Theft or beset, unbound by dud bond grime
Left me fooled; unjust en route very time.

‘Tis bitter how witless may comfort dolt,
Percase if fate could unwritten than bolt

Lost in the Vastness of Love's Thunder
Love became clear in the shadow of a moment
The fear of emptiness vanished in the darkness of my sanity
In the element of my life that which was vanity was stripped 
And lost in the vastness of love's thunder
In the silence...Read More

Met me a nymph as I laid by a lake
Spoke her to me, earth, did I quake!
Trail of stardust in her noble wake
Fell on me some of her fairy flake
Hers the magic, my heart the stake

Oh, sweet affliction! My darling...Read More

In novels, love is the obstacle overturned by the ardent swain
In song, love is a grandiose solo in melodic chains
In poetry, love is fervent rhyme in syncopated refrain
In movies, love is a monologue in the rain
In real life, love is...Read More

Premium Member The Rites of Spring
A named Mercury plies the air
above his fountain
in the Phipps Conservatory.

Children wet their fingers
in the receiving pool
and stare
up at possibilities
that may enable them
to match the blossoming
in the Amazonian Room.

Co-eds with athletic boys,
muscular Pitts and tall Duquesnes,
meander through 
the scented aisles,

Yours Me
Amidst the amazing aroma of the angelic sticks
Cheering along the chants of charismatic priests
Promising on the petals of pearly purity 
You said, "I LOVE YOU" 

During the dreadful dreams of dying waves
Glancing through the glass of dry gloomy grass
Lifting me...Read More

Blake's Mistake
“Don’t tell your love,” the sage advised,
“Or you will never get her.”
“Well said!” the swain soliloquized,
“But silence works no better.”

(With apologies to William Blake, author of the poem, “Love’s Secret.”)...Read More

Obscure Words

found your visage crawling down the lumber.
I go through my journey to the anomalous world,
And just recall the faded memories with you I earned.
Fragments yet fragmented into pieces,
As the way departs for the...Read More

Shakespeare's Name Blame Game
A Capulet named Juliette
Exclaimed to her ardent beau,
"You're not to blame Montagu's your name.
By its nature, a rose's aroma is sweet,
Though in nomenclature it be not so neat,
But, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Why can't you be John, or Frank, or Ben,

? Miss ?
While drinking coffee alone,
feel lover on the next chair.
Or in an afternoon alone,
looking at the sky.

		? Love ?
Crying through a flock of birds and spreading personal memories. Or miss someone's hand while walking alone.

Along the stretch of an alley etched in cracked cobblestone,
Walks a conquered weary swain besides his penumbral casted clone.

Onwards he treads towards the recycled mill of a matted ride,
As calcitrated gravel pebbles are tumbled by his stride.

In days of old
In days of old a lady's heart was won
With chivalry and deeds of derring-do.
If swain proved false, she'd bid the knave be gone,
Adjust her cap and look for someone new.
By age fifteen a maid was in her prime,
Her window for...Read More

When once a lovelorn callow swain
When once a lovelorn callow swain,
Heartbroken by a maid's rebuff

Of female wiles had had enough,

Sat Tom inured to pangs of love, 
Who spoke as lion to...Read More

This passion that within me lies
Was set ablaze by her eyes.

Upon such beauty did I look,
My lovestruck heart, a leap it took.

Truly caught in love's sweet game,
I follow, as some smitten swain.

For what else is a man to do,
When cupid...Read More
