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

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

Caught In The Storm

I enjoyed you like a gentle rainfall
in the illusion of peach blossoms
heavens emitted the scent of passion
love’s profusion, electric sensations
I was swept into the soothing spray
an affectionate shower of deception

destruction struck in duplicity
guise manifested in a darkened sky
foreboding clouds and whipping winds
stark thunder of impending doom
abusively uprooted the sprouting tree
love’s roots had never been planted

danger lit the warning skies
there came a storm of furious rage
gentle rain now an angry downpour
shattered dreams, broken limbs
heeding too late the disaster warnings
caught in the midst of your abusive storm

Rage of Confusion

thoughts ablaze with rage
encircles me in battle
screaming for the clarity
you treacherously withhold

muddied messages befuddle
unspoken promises raise questions
vulnerable without answers
floundering in mixed emotions

frightening voices whisper doubt
in the alley of my mind
fear runs rampant
disorder in my thoughts

words with double meanings
trace no clear-cut definition
swirling whirlpool of confliction
trapped in a rage of confusion

Intersection

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

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

What Would You Say


What would you say if you knew that I loved you
Would you invite me always to walk by your side
Or…
Would my loyalty overwhelm you
Would you abruptly brush me aside

What would you say if you were my refuge
With gentle strength would you hold me near
Or…
Would my need seem so weighty
That you’d take flight in fear

What would you say knowing you were my star
Would your reflection serve as my guide
Or…
Would you desert me in darkness
With arrogance in your stride

What would you say if my heart was yours
Would we join hands in a union of souls
Or…
Would you refuse to walk holding hands
painting my heart the color of coal

What would you say to my burning hunger
Would you own me in the blazing fire
Or…
Would you run from the flame
Leaving me to freeze my desire

Give thought to these questions I pose
Will you accept the love I offer today
Or…
Will I always be wondering
Just what you would say
