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

my defenseless heart
became butterfly wingsbutterfly effect
ascending in response
love began its rise

savoring love in fullness
threshold of sensations
inhaling the rainbow
trust is our foundation

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

The Voice of Love

‘come to me’
a whisper thru the treesVoice of Love
sitting under the old oak
alone and weeping
I heard again
‘come to me’
in the leaves rustle
dried my eyes
looked up curiously
there you stood
a vision of beauty
hands outreach
a voice resonating
like a thousand
stringed instruments
‘come to me’
it was then I knew
as I ran into
your outstretched arms
it was the Voice of Love

Rose That Survived the Storm

 

a blossoming flower ~ our rose
unfolding to embrace the sun
with scintillating emotions

hearts emanating ecstatic joy
heated bodies and warm souls
responded to embrace love

then came winter’s chill
we almost withered away
sunny skies turned to grey 
heated emotions began to cool

a bubble of hope that wouldn’t die
spark of promise for another try
warm hands reached in trust
our rose survived the storm

Quixotic Star

I delight in watching you when you’re unaware
it’s my good fortune to love a man like you
what magnanimous deed could I have done
to garner the unconditional love you return

surreptitious moments are my guarded jewels
when admiringly my eyes trace you unawares
when you are the perfect, imperfect man I love
each nuance revealing the unfeigned you

I’m creating memories to last my lifetime
my private motion pictures to view at whim  
falling in love repeatedly with the quixotic star
my romance hero..love of my life

River of Love

 

there is a river
flows deep & wide
this river is love
where truth resides
and lies cannot hide
vulnerability is strength
trust rules as king
purity of heart
what one must bring

until you brushed
my undernourished lips
with the honesty
of your honeyed kiss
that touched my soul
I’ve been afraid
would dare not wade
in the healing river
I’m now submerged

Intersection

 you cross my mind
at the intersection
of decision and indecision
waiting for the light to changeindecision

Sitting at the yellow pause
contemplating me and you
not use to so much affection
frozen intentions ~ what to do

wondering will I stop
putting up a red light
building walls to keep you out
is that my decided plight

shall I run into your arms
flash the green let love grow
or sit at this intersection
pondering which way to go

must make a decision
before I’m thrown off course
love does not wait forever
this intersection will be crossed

Butterfly Waltz

 

butterfly waltz

 

Dance with me darling
to the melody of the Butterfly Waltz
an angelic tune played on the ivories
by delicate whispers of butterfly wings
spreading the arrow of cupid’s bow

myriad of angels raised voices do sing
tidings of love carried on wings
romance of hearts twixt you and me
spreading the magic of angelic love
blessed wedding our eternal destiny

Promise in a Music Box

  meet me tomorrow at daybreak
at the ocean shore, he implored
an anticipated lover’s rendezvousmusic box
hopeful promise ~ a secret new

morning sun danced across the sea
found his note along with the key
lovely locked porcelain music box
good-bye token he’d left for me

Bittersweet melody a farewell song
lover’s promise already gone

I’ll always love you but cannot stay
sea is my mistress I cannot betray
this porcelain box ~ song that it plays
reminder ~ in my heart you’ll stay

I Am Alive

a pervasive stalker ever-present
your scent an encircling mist
your whisper in the rustling trees
your kiss in the morning breezeAlive

torrid passion like the sun’s blaze
admiration in your piercing gaze
laughter like a burbling stream
enticing me in delicious dreams

walking with you in every way
calefacient thoughts every day
senses filled to overflowing
I breathe you in
I am alive
