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

Parasites

all life is parasiticparasites
every living being
feeds from another life form
in order to survive

one would think
a supposed loving
all wise designer
could have devised
a less savage plan

Duality Flaw

deep within my id
darkest secrets that are hid
mysteries just as grim
others keep obscured within
is it the bane of all
answer the wicked call
into the pit of serpents
shall we fall if not repent

whence came this seeking
of such bleakness
I don’t recall
a choice to fall
wicked visited at midnight
upsetting a reverent plight
was I evil from the start
deception in my heart

conclusion I have made
we’re all as black as spades
equally pure as fallen snow
divergent paths to go
continual fight twixt the two
no repose until life’s thru
duple-powered creatures all
duality is our flaw

Pen on Fire

 

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 trustheartbreak
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

Aging With Grace

avoiding the ravagesaging with grace
age would demand
would seem divine
looked at more closely
I would decline

old friends would shy away
noting my constant
appearance day by day
never a wrinkle
‘what’s wrong’ they would say

young ones would wonder
how wise, my thoughts strange
younger generation
styles would change

knowing all I would do
was secretly concealed
never tarnishing my youth
too great a temptation to abuse

lines on my face
as the years go by
are the beauty within
why would I want to deny

Winds of Love

one summer daywinds of love
love rambled in
on a borrowed breeze
settled in my heart

came October winds
love drifted away
with the rustle
of felled autumn leaves

Fair Maiden Waits

Fair_Maiden_Waitsacross an ocean blue
fair maiden stands
on white-hot sands
waiting for you

a promise of hope
is her strength to cope
nary a falter
her love never altered

with a heart that’s true
unaware of your guise
hope in her sighs
across an ocean blue
fair maiden waits for you

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
