Lingering – A Poem


 

I can taste the linger of your sweet kiss

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

I can smell the linger of your sweet scent

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

I can feel the linger of your sweet touch

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

But, my time is too short, and I must open my eyes

only to find you not with me.

 

But, the lingering fades too quickly, and I must resume my day

even without you there with me.

 

But, the minutes pass too slowly, and I must distract my thoughts

because you’re not there with me.

 

And my day trudges on…

And the hours pass me by…

 

But, I know for sure that my thoughts ever return to

my closed eyes where you linger in my mind,

only to have my heart melt at the memory of…

 

I can feel the linger of your sweet kiss

when I keep my eyes closed long enough…

 

Don’t Wait – A Poem


Have you ever thought you knew what you wanted,

basked in success until you realized you’re stunted,

left yourself feeling worthless and daunted,

only to feel like prey?

 

Have you ever pretended that all was fine,

watched your life slowly decline,

waited for answers, preferably divine,

only to fall halfway?

 

Have you ever wondered what you were doing,

spent your nights lost and stewing,

created emotions that wouldn’t stop brewing,

only to walk away?

 

Have you ever written the lyrics to set you free,

cringed until you heard the next was in key,

waited to see them slowly agree,

feeling your tears start to dry?

 

Have you ever walked into the light of chance,

wished on a star seen only at first glance,

allowed your heart to sing loudly and dance,

feeling your world start to comply?

 

Have you ever accepted that you’re on the right track,

jumped over the ditch and didn’t look back,

knowing deep down you would never again lack,

feeling your soul start to fly?

 

Before life completely passed you by…?

 

A Raging Fire – A Poem


Small, unaccompanied, flickering in

the darkness, my light creating

the shadow of loneliness never to be seen

by anyone not bothering to look.

 

I licked the wind

blowing gently, igniting me further

but short of the motivation needed to be withdrawn

from the inner hopelessness resisting change.

 

A rain begins to saturate and

my flames retract, my embers below still glowing

red in the night sky, as I sit and wait

crackling fiercely but doused in solitude.

 

A heat fills in around me

beginning to rekindle the lost passion

for life as my flames begin to surge forward

from the hot coals I’ve held so dear.

 

I look around to see

this kindred fire engulfed in their own flame

blazing their way toward my weakened state

of permeating heartache and despair.

 

I welcome the breath

of freshness, allowing their sweet incandescence

to illuminate my own powerful soul

full of remembrance and being.

 

Together, swiftly devouring

the dark void within and without of our lives

melting into one scorching future journey

destined for eternal warmth.

 

A raging fire develops,

never to be stopped by dullness or apathy

searing any path of resistance trying to

drown the greatness of love’s humility.

 

 

You’re Mine – A Poem


You’re sweet; you can heal

my emotions, cold and unreal,

warming up with each passing day.

 

You’re amazing; you can steal

my smiles, no big deal

as you smirk and glance my way.

 

You’re hot; you can feel

my body, all so real

as I long for our next, time to stay.

 

You’re mine; you can heel

and before me, you kneel

at my feet as I insist you obey.

 

You’re falling; you can’t conceal

the love, between us ideal,

for each other, we’d never betray.

 

 

Have You Seen Her? – A Poem


Have you seen her?

Beaten down.

Bruised.

 

Have you wanted her?

Sacred soul.

Abandoned.

 

Have you felt her?

Held back.

Withdrawn.

 

Have you touched her?

Like death.

Cold.

 

Have you tasted her?

Salty tears.

Sadness.

 

Have you held her anyway?

Giving hope.

Spirit.

 

Have you desired her anyway?

Warming up.

Rekindled.

 

Have you accepted her anyway?

Brightened day.

Together.

 

Have you loved her anyway?

Forever bonded.

Secure.

 

 

 

 

Now? – A Poem


You arrived, and I couldn’t

help but notice your heartfelt eyes penetrating

their way into my world.

 

How did you look at me

with such radiance and overlook the

glaring obviousness of my flaws?

 

I showed up too late to

make it meaningful as you stood before me

taken, in your warmth.

 

But my hand reached anyway, hoping

to receive the same as my vulnerability

screamed from my being.

 

You took it.

 

We kissed.

 

I fell into the void known by so few

lucky ones in our revolving world of chaos

during the shortness of our life.

 

We danced and sang, weaving our

fates into one direction, both enticing the other

to go a little further, farther.

 

I hid my ever-reddening face with

smiles growing fonder, eyes looking deeper

into our unforeseen future of love.

 

I held my breath, waiting in suspense

as I felt you open your life into mine, both wanting more

than either could realize until now.

 

My hand still in yours.

 

Forever and always.

 

Now…?

 

 


Just because I have to…

“Lovesong”

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

 

 


 

Floating away

Forgotten

Along a swift, chaotic breeze

Grasping for the hope-

Lessness of memory

 

Walking away

Alone

Along a dark, wrecked road

Bracing for the worst

Set of endings

 

Sailing away

Outcast

Along a raging, mean current

Waiting for the cold

Splash of reality

 

Drifting away

Lost

Along a narrow, broken tunnel

Wishing for the warm

Embrace of love

 

 

Shattered – A Poem


 

I shattered the glass.

CRUNCH!

Pieces scatter.

Shards cutting.

Feet stinging.

 

I grabbed the wrist.

OUCH!

Blood boils.

Liquid flowing.

Pain rising.

 

I walked right past.

SILENCE!

Sounds scatter.

Words cutting.

Mind stinging.

 

I smashed my fist.

BOOM!

Rage boils.

Heat flowing.

Temperature rising.

 

I dismissed the sass.

CLASH!

I ran off pissed.

HISS!

Feelings scatter.

Anger boils.

Air cutting.

Breath flowing.

Heart stinging.

 

Sunshine rising…?

Bam…

 

 

 

 

Soul Mates – A Poem


 

You light up my world when it’s dark and grey; you

are building me up in your soft gentle way, igniting

my passion, stored secret and cool, deep within my

soul wound tight as a spool of thread. My love, my

mate. I can’t get enough, and I miss you when you

Don’t see how rough it can be without you. You will

ever live inside my heart, resting so dear, never to

leave, never to part for as long as you will have

me. We beat together, melody playing,

I hear your lyrics ever displaying the emotion you

believe between us. I feel the same as I look

in time; holding so still, but willing to climb

us to the top of our mountain.
