Trifle

I ask this of you
Never to trifle with my affections
My precious little heart can't hold it
For a caprice it's not built
It's banks are full to the brim
and the walls are but weak
Please do not break my little heart
There's not even one unscrupulous bone in me
If you do not fancy me, let me be gone

Perfectionist Poet

I set out to create a rhyme
   but the sounds won't come together
A haiku it was now going to be
   but the words became too many
I decided a sonnet will do fine 
   just then the words disappeared
     only ten lines shy of four
I couldn't gather enough Ps
    to make a tautogram
       and the alteration was already lost
An elegy would have been too sad
This was going to be epic! 
In the end I created a beautiful mess with words
Perfectly imperfect

Jazzy Hearts

Left to their own improvisation
They swirl around each other
In search of the perfect melody 
One they'll be in sync with every sway
A rhythm so smooth and soothing 
Love the main instrument of their music
 A finely tuned sax creating luscious sensations
 echoing in every fiber of their musical being 
Occasionally trade-off  to listen to each other's beats 
quietly going on wild adventures of call and response 
albeit, they always find their way back to the melody
Affectionately falling into a silent contrapuntal rhythm
the jazzy hearts dance to the music of souls

Sweet Nothings


Please tell me once again
With your breath caressing my ear
Whisper all these sweet nothings to me
For I'll never tire of your voice
I'll never find you insufferable 
Start all over again and tell me for eternity


Come here, closer, feel the warmth of my breath
It's me softly telling you, 'You Are My Heart'
With each inhalation your aroma captives me
Listen closely to my words, 'You Are Mine'
Flows so gently off my tongue
My warm breath tickling your ear


I'm all yours love, my existence you've invaded
Pick me up like a delicate rose into your arms
And tell me of all the ways you'd ravish me
With your divinely skilled hands tell me
Tell me the ancient tales of a love so impure
I surrender to you, set me a blaze and consume me


I will hold my delicate rose closely, tenderly
 My heated fingers following forbidden curves
Giving loving attention to each pedal
Removing your thorns with heated adoration 
To be planted within your gardens soil
And spin you tales of my ancient love


Tell me how you love to play your way around
Pulling on my every string softly and tenderly 
Relieve me of this tension creeping up on me
Play me like a fine tuned guitar lulling me to ecstasy
Come with me love and let's crescendo together
Let's break the ceilings of Heaven and soar


You're the instrument my hands love to stroke
The cords my fingers get entangled with
I will bury my lyrics within your melody
Stirring a sweet refrain of musical bliss
Bringing the music to an inevitable climax
Shattering the Heavens glass ceiling

Story of Two

Two souls, one song
Conquering their own demons
By self acceptance and love
With no boundaries

Two hearts, one beat
Sharing each other's battles
With faith as their weapon
And unconditional love the prize

Crying on each other's shoulder
As they watch the tears wash away
The pains and fears of yesterday
And each knows they're home 

Deep within each other's eyes
They see a beautiful future unfold
Soft comfort replacing anxiety
Suffering quashed by their love

Deep down they're confident
That if the sun doesn't shine for days
And the dark clouds don't clear
The light within will illuminate bright

Two become one in harmony
Stripped bear of all guilt and shame
Standing unguarded, emotionally naked
With purity and trust their clothing

Moon Ritual - 4

Under the moonlit sky
The ripe rose stands majestically
deep down she understands 
that time is upon her once again 
As the folklore goes
with the dark moon 
she sheds her deep red petals
one by one they all fall
left bare she stoops
hiding the welling tears 
of losing her precious children
once again
holding onto hope
of having them back soon
When the full moon reappears

Life Cinquain

I'm lost
too weak to surf
my sad board in  two halves 
the waves tossing me like a leaf
at sea

Foxtails Haiku

Weeds~ what a nightmare!
the pesky, bristly mean seeds;
prickly spikelets

Life Tanka

Spinning and turning
Life always like a huge wheel
Mighty ferris-wheel 
We have to cling onto it
Lest it turn and kick us out

Heart Renovations

It's not about the now dull walls

Or the shiny tiles

Or the tinted glass on the windows

Or the sad-looking stairs

Or the new teak coffee table

Or the painted countertops

Or the new tawny couches

Or the jagged mosaic rag

None of that could make me leave

It just doesn't feel like home anymore
