A Melody of Love

This sonnet is now a musical composition as a result of a collaboration between myself, the creative and talented musician Evan Paul Kozaris and the a new singing sensation Stephanie Matos.  Listen to the musical production of Melody of Love by clicking the recorder at the end of the poem.

Lines that etch your gentle face
the comfort of your warm embrace
the out pour of your total devotion
uninhibited honest emotion

These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

The strength of character you display
providing protection every way
Giving support in all I achieve
approval glances on a quiet eve
These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

The twinkle in your smiling eyes
a whisper of awakening sighs
sensual stirring the morning after
teasing kisses and hearty laughter
These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

Outpour of comfort when things are amiss
a heart overflowing with romantic bliss
Your quiet resolve when we disagree
to end the argument peacefully
These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

In a twinkling life for me had changed
all the colors rearranged
love’s profusion, passion’s heat
I’m overflowing, at last complete
These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

With implicit trust I give my all
no doubt or fear, there are no walls
Each day my love grows deep and strong
love that endures a lifetime long
These cherished things
inspire my heart to sing
a melody of love

A Poet’s Truth

Scabs of Heartbreak

our romantic intimacy
should have blossomed into ebullient prosperity
rambling weeds of doubt choked the spark
flame turned to ash
decaying in a cold shallow grave

had your love arrived
when the rose of innocence was the scent of trust
vulnerable as a butterfly alit a flower petal
unaware the harsh winter cold
of embittered betrayal

we could have known the beauty
a lush prolific garden
rare orchids and lilies
roses and magnolia trees
stayed intoxicated on lust’s exotic scents

our hearts should have rejoiced
as offshoots from love’s scattered seeds
roots were never formed
soil remained barren
never watered nor enriched

instead ours was a love
borne in a remembrance of pain
past heartbreak bore its icy scars
frozen; a hardened scab of heartbreak
inexpugnably resisting love’s thaw

so we went our separate ways
neither hating nor loving
the scabs covering the pain
now and then I see your smile
in the summer rain
I miss what should have been love

Imprisoned Heart

Death on Velvet Green

lying on
the velvet green
I dream
remembrance
of the gleam
your green eyes
lit with flames
how we danced
in a trance
licking at our lust
till hearts burst
with inundated love

lying on
the velvet green
I scream
memories fade
reality strikes
nightmare awakens
pain again
an icy blow
that struck my heart
loveless goodbye
took my breath
an internal death

Save

Fearless Love

too long a time
left without barricade
my heart was defenseless

childhood abandonment
created scars; scabbed wounds
strong as a brick wall
entombed my heart

panic guided relationships
hysteria drove love away
absconding from affection
solitude was my stronghold

then there was you

how you found your way
beyond the bricks and mortar
mystifies me still

an honest smile
a silent understanding
a compulsive love

now I have a love story
written in your name
hope replaces fearfulness
love owns the blame

My Little Man

I wrote this poem a few weeks after my son was born, it has taken me many years to edit. Though it is not my greatest writing work it is without a doubt my greatest work of heart.
