Outside the Atmosphere

We fly outside the atmosphere
beyond sight and measure. We speed
like light, our clothes irrelevant, 
our words never written. We are
ideas, we are the saw-toothed buzz 
of energy unbounded, we are
dog-lust, reckless whimsy,
damaged and laughing. 
Always laughing. 

We pulse like racing nebulae
far from the rock that birthed us. Brash 
and blessed, fallen, splendid, open
to the bloodrush. We are stirrings
in the marrow, never curbed,
never censored, we are the shine
of distant meteors, either long-gone
or imagined...

Categories: beautiful, love,


It was not a tragedy at first.
It was the smell of oceans,
It was the breeze on mountains,
It was the spring,
It was the autumn,
It was love.

Soon it was raining.
There was the roar of thunder.
The sky shone a mix of purple, red and orange.
It felt like cries from heaven were pouring down heavy on parched soil.
Yet I asked...
“Can I stay here? Please…”
I would not make a lot of noise.
I would not drown in the sorrow within longing.
I would not climb on the clouds of fear.
I would not walk on the road going towards castles.
I would be alive.

And so, like droplets collected on a leaf
In a wintry morning 
I live...

A Mother's True Love

Love comes in many shapes, sizes and thoughts,
the love of flowers, things, our best pets.
Love may come as that special gift,
the one gift I have wanted or may have been waiting for.
Love is given and received freely by some,
yet required by others.
Love by a Mother cannot be measured,
it is always free flowing.
Love gives up a loved child,
a child that needs to be cared for.
A Mother's True Love knows what is best for her new baby,
love is a kiss to a baby that is never forgotten.

Mirror, mirror hanging inside

Their is a reflection within you blindsided
that which has already decided one way or the other
sometimes the truth has a relationship
and love can never be divorced from it
Why do you hold the cross incorrectly
standing at the altar rails claiming to be religious
Holy Innocence is found guilty within your court
is their something behind those eyes lost beyond saving
in that which tortures your freedom of choice
and makes a slave out of life condemning a soul to death

Love Comes Not To Shackle

For love comes not to shackle but set free
To allow strangers to know its splendor
When they find their bond is from heart's decree
A kiss from this love turns soft and tender
Hold not the argued edge to quell love's dream
Nor each sigh or tear kept along the way
In such a malady, love must redeem
And bow with a warm heart so love will stay
Though years passing move as forever still
The tightly held fingers will bind the hands
And hold the precious trust true love will fill
Through the days traveled love steadily commands
To reveal a keepsake a lover's scroll
Whose empty page was written by the soul

True Love

Lives in every heart
A sense of longing musical  
For an angelic love divine -
To love, be loved; in harmony
With inner feelings and senses -
Which  tuned in unison 
With that of its partner 
In a landscape humanized
Where melodies sung ensemble
Are in precision flawless and selfless,
Where kindness and forgiveness
Are the seeds sown
And where the spring of love eternal 
Has a reap magical
Every instant of their destiny shared 
And lived in serenity embraced, 
Daresay, till death does them part.

Fan In Place

You're the power
a heart grows faced
When feeling
a love can't place
Where moments
a man can't chase
Are aww for a
fan in place

S~ is for a soothing summer breeze

U~ and I under a palm tree by the sea

C~ is for the care we give to every kiss

C~ says we're completely lost in bliss

E~ brings out emotions deep inside

S~ for the happy smiles we are alive

S~ is the sweetness I feel for you,when we're together

Sailing oceans on my clipper 
She was named as Song of the Sea
I'm her only female skipper
My name it is Rosie Marie

I love to hear the songs of whales
Sailing oceans on my clipper
Folks gather for to hear my tales 
of a humpback known as Flipper

I would hand feed him smoked kipper
As he swam alongside my ship
Sailing oceans on my clipper
Singing was his bargaining chip

Charmed and entranced by his whale song
Crisscrossing oceans with Flipper
Loving this humpback for so long
Sailing oceans on my clipper

Have Some Pride You've Been Rejected

She dumped him, he wouldn't have it,
stood outside her house all night,
not just once it was a habit,
forcing her to make things right.

Told him she wants him to leave,
he got angry nasty and cried,
he couldn't just let it be, 
rejected mate, have some pride.

When people don't want you, tell 'em where to go,
same if you met 5 minutes, or 10 years ago.
You're someone they don't want to know,
don't beg all desperate "no no no".

You have no respect for her,
you've no respect for you,
she doesn't want you in her life,
but stay is what you do.

Have some pride mate, 
leave, start new

My Heart Cries For Her

She's my morning sunshine at the start of the day Her words are like music, like a jump in the hay Excitement lasts The die is cast My heart cries for her each moment she's away

When your world is bright and joyful
and light shines on all you see
look for the person smiling next to you
and know
that person 
will be me.

and when your world is gloomy and joyless
and darkness is all you see
look for the person holding up a light
and know
that person
will be me.

                             When you read a poem, respond, respond! A poet just sang you their song, their song!                 We eat poems like wolves, like wolves! Then we withhold our love, our love!                 Be like a god from above, above! At least say just thank you, thank you!               Make their day, their day! Give something of your heart away, away!                     January 25, 2020          2am PST

A Harvest Moon

An autumn moon pregnants the crown,
Love sought fumbles in broad daylight,
Crumbling nightfall as it bears down,
Lovers swoon passion neath twilight.

Amateur all recite blunders,
An autumn moon pregnants the crown,
Leave the invention to wonders,
Adding more verbs than any noun.

First time at love, do not back down,
Or pass the chance for your first kiss,
An autumn moon pregnants the crown,
It sets the scene, for lover's bliss.

As two are drawn, face slightly tilt,
While their lips touch that goes around,
Kindred souls are solidly built,
An autumn moon pregnants the crown.

Common Destiny

What hand of Fate joins us? Only God knows.
Though you are young as spring, and I am old;
we intersect in life, as worlds unfold.
In time your suffering, troubles, and woes
will be no more—but a memory that goes,
and fades, away. And what has been untold,
I now share with you in these lines of gold:
that you are Love, which manifests and shows. 
We share a common grief from worlds apart:—
mine, I transform into dulcet lines of rhyme;
and yours, you transmute into timeless art.
Though we're an eternity apart, time
matters not to our bond,—for the great heart
that is ours transcends even the Sublime!

True Love Dove

Passion prances peace
Diamond’s arrow auras 
Feather dove hearts fly

Love’s linking language 
Watercolor words whisper 
Cloth couples stitch care

Silhouette souls seal
Romance rings as regal rhyme 
Forever full flames

My Love

I love you at dusk 
I love you at dawn 
To your beauty and strength 
I will forever be drawn 

Your essence surrounds me 
Deep down to my soul 
Forever to be cherished 
Forever kept whole 

Every time I see you 
My heart attracts more light 
I will always love the way 
You make my days so bright 

In my heart you will always be 
You help me find my way 
Whether I’m asleep at night 
Or awake in the day

Darkest Realm

Then let not the sun's light fall upon me
Nor to caress my skin in warmer bond
For I care not if all my love has fled
To my forsaken realm if not beyond
For it stays with me in my time's increase
My wormwood memory will die from rot
As my passion's folly has held no peace
And stabs my soul with what yesterday brought
Could that memories find a rainbow's wish
Or remove tears when crossing lost love's ground
Again find peace if I should reminisce
It cannot be relived if even found
Let darkness come to imprison my heart
It shall be chained there until I depart

Love, I miss you so much.
Where are you, where is your touch.
I want to get lost in your eyes, like the clouds in the wind.
I lost my trust and belief, I want to find you and bind.

Love, I want to stop just feeling myself.
I want to finally arrive and feel safe.
My lonely soul, who do not want to be vain.
I am a lonely heart, which tries to run from the pain.

Love, I want to talk to you till sleep at night.
I want to get speechless at morning at your sight.
Be forever in my tender love and care.
I want to be with you and share.

Shine as bright as the daylight sun,
or glow softly like the night moon.
The moon is never jealous of the sun.
She knows why she glows.
As he knows, that she counts the cycles
of his rising and his setting.
