Strangely Beautiful

If moonbeams’ fickle shadow-plays collude
with tousled sheets to take the shape of you,
And silent sighing pillow-tops exude
your scent, how do I see the night-time through?
If longing breezes rat-tat on my glass,
Curled soft into the likeness of your hand,
And floorboards moan, as if to feel you pass,
How can I wake each day? How can I stand?
If crowds contrive to conjure up your face,
And, mesmerised by yearning, I collide
with echoes of your breath at every pace,
How can I walk? How can I step outside?
And yet, because you built this purgatory,
Its walls are strangely beautiful to me.

Then I Wake

Skin like the morning, fresh with shimmering dew, Cheeks flushed with ecstasy’s playful hue, Under your soft gaze I quake, Sweetly poised to break, And then I Wake. There I lie, Joy fading to ache, Tears tracing the wish I make, Praying that the dawn might conjure you - Skin like the morning, fresh with shimmering dew.

I'm So Jealous

~The One That Got Away~


Here I lay weeping

I sing a sad song to sleep 

Fire cracking bones

kicking, screaming, pulling hair

The moment, gone forever

For Only A Moment

Did it have to last for only a moment,
our love withered before the flowers you sent,
white carnations, a pure love they meant,
a relationship so newfound and innocent.

Our love withered before the flowers you sent,
your early departure I could not prevent,
a relationship so newfound and innocent,
a memory lingers on like a sweet scent.

Your early departure I could not prevent,
white carnations, a pure love they meant,
a memory lingers on like a sweet scent,
did it have to last for only a moment.

The Little One is Three

I see his smiles
His sisters laughter in the breeze
I confess a cold heart, warmed

When though will I be free?
From the pain of long ago years
From tears that soaked my humanity away
	I love you all
if only I could stay
   	Life seems so trivial

so when I float away
	who will

Blow out the candles
	as cake and happiness are eaten away

		ahhhhh
	
We never met
You and I

	An war or crime or crippled thoughts
	Shall never stop
	The celebration of birthday dreams
	Friendships never lost


The wishing well is full
Illuminated by an intrinsic brightness

You Know I Love You

Winds may howl,
Wild animals growl,
The forest grows cold, 
For I am lonesome and old
As the sun peaks through the clouds, 
I hear your soft, young voice so loud!
And though you speak dead man's lines,
You speak them with majesty divine
As I am wrapped in  my woe,
I only want you to know...
...that roses die black and violets lose blue,
But I will never die
And you know I love you!

Supermarket check-out

Had she looked back at me
Even for just a second ...
Our encounter might have been the stuff of tabloid frenzy. 
But she left quickly a coffee in one hand, 
A shopping bag in the other,
And I waited for my turn next in line.

Autumn's desires

Autumn's desires

Your amber-umber eyes, penetrate me
as saffron sun sets on faces, ashen
Your suspicious mind raves with jealousy
as pumpkin winds chill our summers passion
your love transitions to winter's fashion.

Fire and ice keep flowing through your bold veins
Wild imaginations portend cold rains.

I dream of your ruby-red crimson lips
my mind won't rest until you have returned
the  touches from your ginger fingertips
we can rebuild the bridges that have burned,
then, we will laugh at all the lessons learned

I think of your flowing cinnamon hair
mem'ries of our home, and you being there.

Leftovers

Soberly, I raise my head
to beg you for
one thin slice of bread
since on the table
a dirty dish holds the residue
of someone else’s wish
 
And there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
No there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
 
Hours later, you lie there still
watching more headlights
glide above the window sill
'cause though your mind
fights back desperately
each new passing car
stirs the same old memory
 
So there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
No there’s nothing left
nothing left for me

MOON WHISPERS



the full moon dangles low tonight
and whispers sweetly in my ear
memories of fiery delight  
the full moon dangles low tonight
graceful herons glide in full flight   
I’d trade them all to hold you near
the full moon dangles low tonight
and whispers sweetly in my ear

Captured

He left
That night locking
Her away with a kiss;
Her soul captured by his spirit,
She stayed.

She waits -
For the spirit
To light her pitch-black days;
To breathe into her missing nights;
She’s still.

The Pain of Night

Caving tears in the moonlight's shadow. 
I wash the pain of yesterday's wound. 
A shade of happiness drifts in the darkness. 
I start to breathe in a crowded room. 
I run fast, 'til I reach the horizon. 
Eyes glare at me, I have nowhere to go. 
I screw up all the pain this heart kept. 
I'm giving up, I'm tired to blend. 
Kneeling down, I summon love. 
I searched for love myself, and I failed. 
I am broken, impaired, can barely bend. 
Bring me to life, where love exists. 
Lay down my soul barely naked. 
Grasp the thinnest air, I'm suffocating. 
Sooner or later the pain will be gone. 
The night will soon meet the sunshine.

In the Absence of Moonlight

In the Absence of Moonlight

A serenade he had prepared
A love song of desire
Her to the moon he had compared
They’d meet within the hour

But oh, dear moon ,where have you gone?
My song will sound so sour
I pray your presence won’t be long 
We meet within the hour

A little re-write here and there
She’s now a gorgeous flower
No time had he, for despair
They meet within the hour

Her ears are filled with serenade
Her heart, it feels the power
Pleased was he, with changes made
And more so for that hour.

The Love Affair

That sultry night

Heavenly Hot He came

Endearing and Exciting

Like a summer scented waft

Oceanic eyes all over me,

Vulnerable and virtuous  to his kiss

Enchanted by the moment's bliss

All I am I  gave to him,

Forbidden fantasies He fulfilled.

Face to face We bid adieu

Away He sailed in distant waves

Iridescent shadows of his smile

Reminisce memories of last embrace.

A Rose For My Sadness

A Rose for my sadness
Is all I ask
Seal it with your kiss
And your magical spark.


A Rose for my sadness
Is all I need
With a glimpse of your smile
And sound of your heartbeat.


A Rose for my sadness
Is all you can give
To aglow the flame
And rekindle the love I keep


A Rose for my sadness
Will surely make me glad
It will erase all the longings
And ease the blunt pain.


A Rose for my sadness
Will bring your touch
Shower me with warmth
Missing you that much.

LOVE

Cessation the love
Household has been scattered
When love lost

Humming in the community
Malicious gossip in the society
Disorder in the society
Degrading the society
Society has been scattered
When love lost

Humming in the state
Malevolent rumour in the state
As the day chameleon to night
Insomnia in state
Peace elude state
State has been scattered
When love lost

Mystery to nation
When    love    lost

Oh! It is a dream
Why do we stop loving
While love exist
Love is above all existent

The Other Side

In vile defeat I confided to helplessness
I cringed knowing I know so little
As inadequate as I am I felt responsible 
I felt responsible to know everything

In this mentality I suffered long nights
Over thinking myself and overlooking life
Until I gave up the pain for a little while
And took a deep, dark look to the other side

In every sense

In every sense I smell his love 
When the pure-scented moonlight bathes my window
Reflecting its tresses inside and the night-breeze
Spills a bouquet exploding of wonderful colors
Of evocations to mind which stroke perfumed
Warm touch on my glowing skin courted
By lavender whispers of memory… hmm…there
In every sense I smell his love.

when i die

when i die
the clocks will keep ticking
the earth will not mourn
even you my love will not miss  a heartbeat
nor will you pause to hold your breath
all the warmth and emotion inside will escape me
the earth will accept me cold

and all this makes me wonder 
will i be treasured inside you
even when memories of me grow faint
will you still see me in your surrounds
will you hear my voice

or will i my love,be no more
out of sight out of mind,,,,

Between Happiness And Sadness

Between happiness and sadness
 —silence; an angel prays:

I kiss the loneliness of old people, 
their temples like handfuls of winter; 
their hearts
are used baggage, 
waiting; 
memories speak to them, 
they smile and
tell me stories from their youth 
—sadness falls; 
silence passes unspoken
—they remember the dead. 

I kiss the loneliness from their temples
and sadness lifts from their mouths.

something beautiful

I want to write you something beautiful
Can I show you I am right here
I would live all my life alone to prove that
I'm so madly in love with you

When were apart 
I can't breathe
You have all the right parts
You fit perfectly in my heart

What you do to me
Is something beautiful
My missing puzzle piece
Pirate my seas 

You're all I can see in the horizon
This love navigates me like a compass
I pray it leads me to something beautiful
If it doesn't ill keep on trying 
until my last breath meets the face of death

I have a great love for  you
The unknown troubles us two
I'll be forever alone if I have to
Because I want something beautiful with you

Always on my mind:

Silhouettes dancing in a midnight moon, As the stars join in with their twinkling lights, Hearing their melodies playing in tune, My spirit is soaring with glee gained heights. I turned to face where you would be laying, To find darkness instead of you was there, Then I found myself amidst of saying, How much I loved you and always would care. Hollow these sentiments without you near, This darkness now filled my every thought too, Only the moon and stars above were clear, For in truth, this heart still doth ache for you. So alone I am with the stars tonight, With you on my mind but not in my sight. /|\
