Untitled Word of the Day Poem #30

Finally took the rings off
unshackled my heart
unbound my soul
I finally am letting you go.
I have waited…..
waited
waited 
waited
for you to return to me
only to realize
I hid my eyes with blindness
preferring to look
upon times of the past
with more fondness
than I do when I look to the future.
It was hard
the day they came to the house
platitudes mouthed
yet…..
only I was the one crying.
I sit upon the bed we once shared
no longer do the sheets
or your pillows
smell like you.
The tee shirt I wear
shorts I pull on
a tribute to my love for you.
I am sorry my darling
it is so hard to let go
to let you rest in peace.
I kneel before your tombstone
sorrow
tears settling into the earth
as I whisper…..
‘I have delayed this too long
good bye my love.
Memories
I will hold tight 
your ghost
I must lay to rest.
Never forget…..
Always and forever
I will love you.’

Reality Returns

Beautiful songs
merest whisper
tantalizing breath of air.
Spring’s breeze
caressing my body
tempting me
like your scent
like your hands
like all of you
even as we sit so far apart.
When did it change?
When did it become so hard?
Why does my heart cry out?
Why does yours not respond?
Tears dry
lips curve into a smile
as you move along
pressing to my side.
Fingers following wetness
tracing a path upon my cheek
questions in your eyes
as I peer up at you.
Is this a second chance?
A second coming?
Love finally coming home?
You hand me a cup
steaming
warm
sweet smelling tea
wrapping your arms around.
With gentle kiss
safety once more found
wanting to sit like this forever
knowing that reality
will once more come around.

Hidden Heart

Twist 
turn 
curve around
make sure to follow
left
right
not north
not south
or never shall I be found.
Heart of the maze
surrounded by thorns
kept in a casket.
Hidden deep beneath
safeguarded
dragon’s hoard
escape from
hide from
pain
that cripples
blackens my sight.
Tip toe
brutal cold
mist arises
coating stairs with ice
another maze
hidden dangers.
You shall never know my plight.
Deep within this fort
made of bone
made of blood
made of stone
a sarcophagus
etched with acid
tears
grief…..
my heart is hidden 
safe from promises
safe from love
safe from a world 
harboring no illusions
never again
will I love.

Hero of my Heart

All I want…..
your hands on my body
your lips
trailing kisses neck to knees.
I want to feel….. 
desire
to squirm with delight
your body against mine.
I imagine…..
things that only you can do.
I imagine….. 
kisses that only you can give.
I imagine….. 
hunger filled nights
sated mornings
I imagine…..
dreams
floating on clouds
and soft beds.
I imagine…..
a love like the ones read.
I imagine…..
a life
as found in fantasy
and wonder
was I once a fairy princess?
Where is my Hunter?
Sent to capture and instead…..
makes love.
Where is my King?
Who sees the truth and still…..
craves me.
Where is my Jester?
Touched by the ugliness
the horror
of heart and soul
of demons I cannot shed
he comes to me.
Protector.
Guardian.
Champion.
White knight 
on a fine white steed.
Hero of my heart.

Now & Forever

Feeling the brush of your lips
against the side of my neck
your hand holding my hair
caught tight in your fist
I tremble.
Desire flooding my body
betrayal
worst kind
still I want you
your hands
lips
body pressed to mine.
Teeth nipping sensitive skin
fingers digging
moans
struggling to keep them from you
not wanting to give in
fighting to control
knowing that I cannot.
I am powerless.
Flash that smile
chocolate eyes melting
I will fall to my knees
head bent in submission
defenseless
your voice curls
guttural
thick with passion
unable to stand
you have me at your mercy.
I am writhing.
I am yours.
Now 
&
Forever more.

Untitled Word of the Day Poem #29

Howls
frenzied
fierce
baying
fleeing from the hunter
fleet of foot
mazes my protection.
Dancing between love
hate
fear
joy
racing for the front door.
Hoping……
I shall barricade myself
shield myself
harbor
budding love
flecked with burgeoning fear
things cannot remain
as they are.
I cannot keep from you
pain
horror
rejection
drowning with despair
disheartened
as you reach for me
ready to ply your trade.
Beneath the crescent moon
shadows cavort
devil’s prey
casket caught……
Freedom 
found my way…..
Pain 
your only way out.

Melodious Love

I pick out a gentle melody
fingers dancing
over ivory keys.
Lost….. 
times
past
present
never the future
for than
you are not with me.
My love
sing a song
hearts murmur
desire rising
all I can think of…..
is ye.
Haunting
tears
affair of the mind
body
soul
I can still feel the warmth of your hand
small of my back
warm breath on my neck.
Dust motes
dancing through beams of sun
of our days
nights together
passion burning
through the fire.
I yearn
once more
to feel you
to taste you
to blend my body to yours.
Plaintive melody
strands of silk
bind
tether
tie us together…..
shall we continue to make
the same mistakes?
