Between A Blue Night And Dawn

entry picture

Two lovers traveling
two lovers
meeting in the East

Their affair 
was letters inked 
and photographs
Now here embodied 
will they know what to do?

She wakes him one morning, saying
'let's take a boat to an island
let's rise above the Bangkok smog'

Bike beneath them spluttering
her arms knitted around him
they race from bay to beach
chasing the burning sun
with hair wet and smi...

Lie with poetry

If I could lie with poetry as if beside a lover,

Rhymes like arms to hold me, laden pages as a cover

between me and my reality, the truth I try to hide,

Too feeble for the malice of the world that waits outside.

 

If I could lie with poetry as if upon a lover,

Minds meeting as hearts beat to find the rhythm of the other,

Words caressing skin, or tasting sweet on lips so red,

Strangers Leave Scars

We were strangers by the pool
there was summer on your skin
I lay low, opened my whole body
in the hope that you would find me

Then taking it the distance
from the shore raised to the sky
there were many sailors scheming
on the bending of your knee

There’s a bridge in your dreams
as it recedes behind a fog
you wonder what it means...

Even naked your body was a silk gown
as you sc...

Three Poems in Tana

1: An Old Transformation

 

Her body

cold

as sea ice

lay before me

broken

by life’s swell.

I remembered

the pull of her currents and tides,

her surging waves and deeps

And I knew

I could no longer navigate

the course

we had set

so long before

As she lay before me

still, pale, cold

I wept:

for ever

becalmed

 

2: Lovers

 

Naked

Care

I thought that you cared,
that you cared more than a friend.
Now when I see you you're all over him,
now I'm letting the darkness in.

I remember when you were all over me,
I sang you lullabies to help you sleep.
You held my hand when I felt down,
held me in your arms to pull me up.

We were editing our little story,
you put your pen down and I start to worry.
You scrumbled your paper ...

September is for lovers

September is for lovers, I find comfort in the covers cuddled up next to you, maybe too much so because sometimes I even drool, dancing on the couch and watching tv, I love the way you lay your eyes on me, holding hands and taking walks, you're always laughing at my mismatched socks, with you I know I will always feel good enough.

Art of my dreams

You are the art of my dreams. 

The muse of my thoughts 

and the sweetness of my soul. 

a gentle aura surrounding mine 

sending messages through the skin and bone 

what a funny way to live, 

what a peaceful time 

to be alive. 

to dare what is romance between the reality of life and visions

to desire not only a life 

but two paths in one.

-G. N. D.

He 

followed 

the sun

With her wings.

Dawned

A thousand times

He was never to be seen!!

Lovers

There were those moments

pressed

against a Cornish rock

                in beach blackness

                with the shush of the rippling waves

                nearby in the night

lying

in a Sussex garden

                with the hot sun

                dappling our backs

parked

on a Ditchling hill

                with town lights

                spread below

Upgrade

Drowning in the depth of your eyes 

I’m gasping for air 

Keep my alive 

Give me mouth to mouth 

Those lips of life 

Why can I just lay with you all night 

Held by words 

Captivated by touch 

I need you close 

I don’t need much 

Just the chance to see you 

To touch you 

To fuel you 

I want to ignite your flame 

Push you higher 

Build your desires

Colorblind

Roses are grey 

violets are grey 

no I’m not a dog

just can’t get colors to stay

 

I am colorblind 

no big deal, just lots grey

I don’t mind it, truly

it’s what I’m used to, day after day

 

Something’s always missing

is it blue? Maybe red. 

How should I know the difference? 

my senses are dead 

 

I’ve heard of lavender 

A light but loving color

Page turner

 

Like reading a good book

I can’t stop turning your pages

What will this next chapter hold

Action, romance, comedy

I want to remove the layers between us

Page by page 

The anticipation is killing me

I place my hands on each of your knees 

I can’t wait to read you 

Uncover the truth 

Your body speaks so eloquently

Notes in the Margins of a Lover’s Poem

Slightly runny yolks with sizzling edges

Komodo freshly brewed to bold perfection 

Heavenly scents waft through our place 

I oversleep; you don’t judge; instead, you

cook my eggs just the way I like them.

Slow dances in our socks on kitchen tiles

Bike rides under shady oaks for miles

Beach picnics, candlelit and sunset-kissed

The breeze blows out our candles; you try

My body just inches above yours

gaze into your eyes, your soul

I have questions and concerns 

kiss the top of your collar bone 

place you between my legs 

relax slowly 

experience every part of you filling me

feel expanded and complete 

utterly overjoyed

Heart touching heart 

Kiss your chest

Ionic bond

My ionic bond 

You’re metal and I’m not

Hold us together

Let’s form a lattice 

Feel the electrostatic attraction 

Let’s exchange ions

and unite in strength 

They freely flow back and forth 

Break and form 

This compound is complex 

Discover a new element 

Let’s name it after us

What a unique a beautiful creation

Is it gentrified prostitution

Why Do I Stay?

It's the little things you do
The way you say my name
The way you smile at me
How easily I can laugh with you
No matter how sad I am
The way you believe in me
The way you hold me up
How strong you can be
To lift up and support me
The way we kiss after a fight
The way we grow together
How beautiful you make me feel
On my ugliest days
It's all these things,
All these reasons,

Good Girl

Good girl
Those words move me
Quivering to my core
Sparks the embers in my cheeks
So many connotations
A thank you for listening
To your commands
A unique expression of adoration
As well as appetition
An ‘it’s going to be ok’
Psychedelic to my anxieties
Caress my curves
Trace the imprints you leave
On my soul
On my skin
Please, tell me again
I want to be your

Missing Out

entry picture

Sneaking out at night to lie with your virgin girlfriend under the stars.

Seeing her face in the crowd at your High School football game.

Having a huge group of jock friends.

 

You never experienced any of that.

It's over. You lost at life.

 

Time to man up and become a provider.

Time to downsize and save for retirement.

Time to Gillette shave your face and become...

One Moment

I fell for you.

I loved you.

I opened my heart and soul to your infinite worlds of possibility.

I touched you.

I held you.

I felt safe and secure in the sacred silence of your arms.

But you were scared.

You were closed.

Meeting every tender word with thought rather than feeling.

You could have been the one,

But now you're just one moment.

Lovers or Friends?

What are we, friend or lover,

I feel so far from you, not knowing if we are together,

You said when we got together it would be forever,

Forever is cut short, as you know you can't be faithful, not at all,

You would prefer to ask for attention of a guy you don’t know,

Instead of getting the affection of your lover you act towards him, as you’re a foe.

 

Are you my friend or lo...

When You Smile

entry picture

When you smile,
Minutes lose all of their seriousness,
Suddenly, it starts to run on your cheekbones
As kids who are wearing the cardigans of innocence
And they quit counting the flow of life,
While your lips edges are getting close to your dimples.

When you smile,
-Especially when your eyes come along with that smile-
And when the laughs open it's wings with all of it's prettiness

Trust is an illusion

Trust is an illusion. A systematically flawed word. A total forgery of a statement. Trust assumes infallibility - without errors, mistakes or fuck ups. How do we trust others when we can't even trust ourselves .. If the potential gain outweighs the potential risk we're likely to oblige. Whether the repercussions be momentary or long standing, we're going to indulge in whatever we feel is beneficia...

She lived in Mechelen

of Basque and Belgique blood

opposite a gothic church

a Jupiler neon sign lit her window

 

They’d sleep on splintered floorboards

and sketch gargoyle shadows on the wall

rarely would they take refuge

she had a husband in Kiev

a sailor of sorts

she cried sometimes

he’d pull away

 

Six seasons passed 

they laid together

Menage A Trois

The creeping half-light
casts unnatural shadows
on a cooling path.

Silver sister moon
bites down hard on the sky king,
silencing bird song.

This, being England,
she does beneath a cloud veil
of shy modesty.

Unbelievers still
raise their eyes to the heavens
in acts of worship.

Magic or science -
or just something poetic
on a spring morning?

By The Edge Of Water

 

By the waters edge we rest and play, 

toes in the water, feeling quite gay,

celebrating the warmth of the dancing air 

and the restful peace of that place we share.

 

A loving time with never once a worry, 

soft sounds of ripples that won’t ever hurry

and when the wind changes to a cooler breeze, 

we'll head on home for some warming teas.

 

We’ll spend the evenin...

Afterglow

 

Enjoy those sleeping moments, when dreams rise to entertain,

As we lay back in afterglow, sharing the warmth that lovers gain,

And while we whisper loving thoughts until sleep comes to stay,

Our last waking thoughts will be of the love we shared today…

 

Then in our dreams we will walk hand in hand as water laps around,

Facing the fullest moon and wondering at t...

I'm to leave now

By: Ali Taha Alnobani

I'm to leave now

A tall ghost is carrying my bag

A long street is walking behind me

A mad merchant bought my smiles

And no water to renew the dusk

I can't have my step begun

Even if the rain washed my tears

***

I'm to leave now

Can I have a deep look at your eyes?

Can I take my dreams, your smile

And my dried red rose?

FORGOTTEN PROMISES

 

We talk face-to-face, so close, so fragile. In the morning I say goodbye

my eyes searching her tearful eyes for one last gleam of hope.

Then I go, I promise from the bottom of my heart to phone you and I will

But I never do as the headlong rush that is life rushes me by,

making that one night seem so long ago.

I ask myself, did it happen? R...

Call Out

 

It is the pleasing duty of the poet,
to offer lines that can reach to many,
to those that share his views and passions,
and for lovers to recall when they have any,
quiet moments to share together and linger in the glow,
that only they can ever know in its fulsome depths,
which in their full hearts and minds will ever show.
 
So call out to your loved ones,

True Love Will Still Win

 

Distance is a cruelty many lovers endure,
it saps what can otherwise be so very pure,
but the bond between soul mates can rise above all,
so that those love pangs we feel become very small.
 
Live each day with the knowledge that love is alive,
and with your depths of passion, it will ever survive,
so marvel at those feelings that arise from within,

Two Kisses

How much are you worth asked a dear friend

'Two kisses and a cuddle' was the reply he did send

'Two kisses may be found for you with ease

But a cuddle is harder to blow through the breeze'

'Ah but cuddles are warm and can last so long

Please see if you can manage to blow very strong'

'Much as I might blow long with all of my might

I doubt you would get that hug afore tomorrow ...
