In your eyes
I can find
I can see
in those eyes
You’re the one
who by day
is my sun
From your glow
I can feel
your love flow
Moon by night
your light is
Like a quake
is the love
that we make
In its wake
I find peace
Sleep, my dear
When you wake
I’ll be here
I’m so glad
you are mine

For the rose without season is you
Light between stars shines through your soul
Ocean of kindness whispers your name
Joy resides in those beautiful eyes
Treasure trove,a friend to keep
Humbleness and Honesty,your virtues.
Open-hearted to all,expecting nothing in return.
Mother and wife who lives life for your beloveds
Admirable for verse,and much more for deed.
Special is the best word that sincierely describes you.
Dedicated to my dear friend Flo with love and gratitude-Thankyou.

As the sun begins to set
and it's final rays slowly dance
across this golden pond
I silently stare into her reflection
staring back at me
past the old and the weathered ripples
down beneath the surface
into the soul
the deep and loving soul
the memories bubble out
memories of kindness and love
honesty and humility
and memories of you
how I'd do anything for you
I stand here in silence
by CayCay Jennings |
devotion, emotions, love,
With trust in my eyes
I offer my soft side
Where you safely abide.
With honesty in my voice
I share my naked truth
Where you freely run loose.
With a focused brain
I grant my best logic
Where you filter conflict.
With gentleness in my touch
I give my tender care
Where you shatter despair.
With anticipation on my skin
I surrender my body
Where you make grand glory.
With everything I am
I promise you my heart
Where you are the best part.

Oh, love from a distance
Such passion is mine
I never thought possible
An ocean's deep mystery line
Soulmate's hearts beat as one
From only the written word
Openness, honesty, is all it takes
World history, such passion unheard
Her beauty astounding, angel in disguise
Jealous Kings of Europe would have fought war
Her kindness and humor melt coldest hearts
Brilliant and creative too, she makes my heart soar
My distant soulmate, who I may never meet
Shared love from a distance, a powerful, magical feat
by Nina Parmenter |
love, mystery, relationship, truth,
Would we survive if you could hear
Me thinking? Maybe not, I fear
For what we lock away
Is as important as the things we say
And pure, relentless honesty
Is not a panacea.
We are we because the secret glue
Of things I do not say to you
Holds tightly all the things I choose
To share. And should we ever lose
That blissful dab of secrecy
That sprinkle of duplicity,
That keeps your inner world from me,
And mine from you - one blink
And we‘d be through I swear,
Or worse, we’d sink...
Weighed down by things we dare not think.

poems, poetess, poetry, poets, write,
Write what you know
Write what you love
Invent a new world
Write what you see
Write what bothers you
Write what amuses you
Invent a new persona
Let the words dance
Sing them home
Poetry does not have to be fancy
Poetry does not have to be frilly
Heartfelt honesty sells
People love it
Write what you know
by Yoni Dvorkis |
Certain moments make this all worthwhile
'Random' presets left but to defile
Blink your eyes to see the flash of white
Blink once more to gain a different sight
Milliseconds gazing at the stars
In which I understood you as you are
And in that time the notion came to me
A sigh of love bled out of honesty
The story of a bruised and rotting pear
That learned to dance on wind and open air

education, family, children, friendship,
What is spoon-feed?
Feeding our thoughts
Sincerity, Honesty and Truth
Called Constructive Criticism
Striving to be at our best
Helping because of love
Motivated to Construct
Mistakes, Errors, Faults
It is okay
We are not perfect
Why use hell
Instead of Condemned?
Hell is Bulls Eye
Exact place when condemned

funny, love, parody, me,
I've asked this of many women,
And get strange looks towards my way,
And in all honesty,
I think I ought to say,
What the hell is a concubine??
Is it an imprisoned porcupine?
I just don't really know,
But, ask it I do, often,
With results too easy to show,
That's not a healthy rosy cheek,
But face-slaps I seem to seek,
Stings like all hell,
Oh, what, by God, do tell...
What the hell am I saying aloud,
And why does it leave me less than proud?
Gotta' get me one'a dem fancy dik-shun-arees
Else I be beaten down to my knees..........

friendship, inspirational, life, love, friendship,
It’s funny how light
From a source
Can reach across many miles,
Through time even.
That, too, can be said
For bonds or friendship.
Age has no bearing
Sex has no bearing
Distance has no bearing
Just the honesty,
The respect and love
Has bearing on how far
A friendship can go.
Let friendship be light
Never to be extinguished
By thought, but be perpetuated
By natural resonance.

Can i ask
a question love smiling
in all honesty
are you real
or has it all been me dreaming
because you're lighting up all the space
residing inside my thoughts
You're beautiful smile
is driving me crazy wishing
that I could kiss you
upon the lips
my dream delight
Or could it be possible
that I am a fallen angel
as you touch me with your grace
healing a miracle
at the hands of love
by Daniel Cheeseman |
Forever hold these words I say,
let them sleep your heart so deep.
Be you constant at my side, let
not emotions or feelings hide. Be
my conscience of desire, be the
beating of this heart. Let the days
be forever long, the evenings soft
and nights alluring. Let us be in
rhyme with love, sate ourselves
of skins sweet glow, pass the kiss
in honesty, and to the heart bliss
bestow. Take these words, take
them deep, for in my soul you
shall sleep. Forever and a dream
you shall always be.
by Gregory R Barden |
analogy, love, metaphor, relationship,
Who do you think you are?!?
You use your tears like money,
Each one paying for another excuse ...
Lies dripping with feigned empathy,
And staining honesty like blood.
Yet these briny drops fall to me,
Pressed between our empty pages ...
Like a dried rose once given in love, cherished,
Now, left to wither ... thorns and all.

lost love, love
I was a fool
To believe that you loved me
To fall for that cosmic joke
As if I didn't know the punch line
Now as I watch you sleep
Your face has changed
This moment gives birth
To doubt and despair
And I search your face
To find a glimpse
Of the source of my devotion
But no sign of love remains
Clarity offers revelation
I am alone after all
Oddly comforting, though
The honesty of truth
by Kimberlee jones |
Get you thinking about what you dread the most
Keep you praying its all in your head
you change your mind when you think about whats not been said
Hes out again, you just ignore what u dread..
love is a circle one to never end
until its broken beyond mend,
time is a gift dont waste it on doubt
open up your heart but dont leave your mind out
dont let him do what you feared the most
your a keeper not just lovers host.

happiness, husband, love, love, me,
Since you’ve come into my life everything has been so new.
I never thought I had it in me to love another the way I love you.
You’ve opened my eyes and given me what I desire.
That’s why when I see your precious face its sets my soul on fire.
Doubts lead to patience which lead to understanding.
At times we both can be so damn demanding.
Tears meet with fears.
Battles with severe emotions.
Which clearly showed how much we’ve devoted.
My heart yearns your attention and affection.
Take one look and there’s your reflection.
Living without you is impossible and so unreal.
Loyalty, honesty, and sacrifice seals the deal.
by Caren Krutsinger |
projecting our wanting love self
we imagine who we want
seeing our forever soul partner
fashioning them out of smoke
sagely ignoring reflective honesty mirrors
throwing ideas that do not fit
into a hot fiery furnace
ignoring the cries of reality
turning our backside to ashes
crucifying truths that don’t fit
projecting our wanting love needs
we envision an ideal life
with scoundrels who hurt us
expecting a revelation to turn
them into our prince charming
throwing away family and feelings
into wide crevices and ditches
turning our backs on screams
inside our heart that die
with unseen truths in mirrors
by Justin Bordner |
angel, beauty, caregiving, love, passion,
From you I do not hide
the fragile, feral man inside,
in your grace I do confide
crown and pride I put aside,
For in your breath love is true
upon your breasts my eyes burn blue,
a face pure as youth I see in you
in our kiss the divine comes through,
I take you with me through the day
into the wild and amongst the fray,
within my heart you will stay
you are my strength all the way...
by Patricia Garcia- Howard-Bramble |
Thank you for the love you shared
Thank you for the time you spared
Thank you for the effort you made
Thank you for the support you gave
Thank you for picking me up when I fell
Thank you for your sincerity
But most of all thank you for teaching me
Respect, Forgiveness and Honesty.

The most precious of words are these three
When emotions demand honesty
Not said to control
Not meant to cajole
At least not when spoken to thee

love, women, women,
WHY DO WOMEN LIE
THEN TRY TO HIDE IT MOST OF THE TIME
GOD WHY CAN'T WOMEN SPEAK THEY MIND
STOP IDLE AND EVEN STOP THE LIE
THEY SAY ONE THING
THEN THEY LIE AND CHANGE IT
MEN CAN'T LIVE WITH WOMAN
WHO CAN'T FIT INTO THE HONESTY HOOD
WE WANT OUR WOMAN TO BE STRAIGHT
DON'T LIE TO US WHEN IT'S LATE
MEN COULD FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE
BUT WE AINT WANT ANYBODY CALL US LIAR
GOD PLEASE LIFT THIS CURSE FROM WOMAN
HELP THEM TO PATTERN THY LIFE AFTER AN HONEST SOMEONE
