I’m digging through letters for clues
For endearments that will fill my cup
They spill over and fall away
As they come in with a rush
Too many to grasp
I pick them up one by one
In hopes to hold onto
Little pieces of you

How many love letters do I have to write before they are sent
How many hours do I spend and lament
Over the impossible dream
The one that can’t be seen
And more and more it seems
Like it’s never going to be

The shape of our love, our version of it,
Exists in bubbling thoughts of former lives
And constant dreams of distant hearts
Where our lives are entwined
Ripples of waves intersect
Jetting dangerously close
But never on the same path
Turning heads, looking back
How do we get off this track
Without losing control,
Where it will go
The inhabitants look upon us

The production commenced
with actors on stage
portraying the love we once had-
the grasp of her cheek,
the look in her eyes,
as he folded over himself
to make her swoon his way.
Amongst an empty crowd,
the curtain’s now drawn,
the actors have gone home,
the final act is done,
it’s time to get on.
Hanging on for an encore,
hoping for another show,
relishing in the memori...

Images and words
words longed for
as they wrap around
and envelop me,
overwhelming yet satisfying.
Since our last meeting
your ghostly presence arrived
in the oddest of places:
long car drives,
walking in a park,
every room of the house,
and late at night in bed.

Telepathically, your thoughts race over me
They strike during the early morning hours
It’s that time again
But we won’t talk about that now
We’ll say so much that will fit in
The space between the silence
But those days where we lit up the sky
We won’t talk about that now
But the fantasies creep in
Some days, or most days,
On what we’ve done behind locked d...

Love bites mark what occurred this week
Turns out I couldn’t mask the distance between
Ending up with someone else
Added another notch in my belt
But he didn’t mean anything
Because you see
I was after someone else
My love adventure turned out to be my worst realized dream
Caught between lovers of convenience, lust, and longing

Spinning the same song
that connected us
gets harder to hear.
Each verse cuts deeper
into what never was,
what could have been,
the longing to be near.
With my fingertips crossing your beard,
your fingers grazing my thighs,
those longing sleepless nights
I’ve waited to be alongside
the one that knew the depth
of my emotions,
facing eye to eye....

You set the scene,
describe it so perfectly;
what we’ll do
what I’ll wear
where we’ll go
from the first moments of excitement
to the height of pure ecstasy
it’s a trembling sensation
that leaves me wanting;
wanting to lay with you,
to feel your warmth next to me
The cool breeze from the window
attempts to ease
the burning between us
but fails as we don’t let...

He says, “you’ve been a great lover,
opened up doors for me,
been there when I needed you
but I’m going to leave you, woman
for I know you could do better than me”
He picks up his suitcase,
then he’s running out the door
And that’s the way it is
that’s the way it’ll always be
lovers in and out the revolving door
She says, “I’m going to leave this town

Two lone souls
believing they stand out in the crowd
do they really
or are they the same as everyone around
they feel like they're special, profound
no one must feel the same
but they do,
they all want to be loved
they're all searching for the one
Yet there isn't only one for you
there are quite a few
as they've slowly come in and out of view
this one here...

Let me help you flip the switch
Scratch that itch
that’s been burning
For some time we’ve been yearning
for each other
Under the moonlight
we reach for a lover
that’s been like no other
I’ve longed to hold you,
to have you close to me
to feel you envelop me
to have our hands intertwine
to graze my fingers across your body and across your lips
to rest my hand on your cheek

Loving you is easy; missing you not so much.
I long to hear your voice and feel your touch.
When I don't feel you near as time goes by, my face may show a smile but all my heart can do is cry.
They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. Distance for me is like a storm full of thunder.
I wonder if you are simply asleep; are you well or is there reason to weep.
Missing you is hard to bare....

Matriarch butterfly, conduct conducive
mother gaia's demeanor echo.
as you move mountains
as she size your shoe, electrifying presence
you're so well grounded
heart fluttering, don't be disheartened.
trumpets erupting, as you walk the walk, my mind carry off as I'm wrapped in your minutiae
Shift the world, your tectonic occupancy lay rise to volumes of topographic novelties

Love is in the air forecasters say
at first blush, be that as it may
chalk initials in handpicked tins invoke remembrance by paving ways
palms supine scribed with written in lines tie sanskrit signs
significance is found in the now
springs and gears ticking time
as faeries grant blessings shifting through a lovers parade
Concurrent reminiscence written on akashic pages taking turn
Sunday 16th February 2020 8:51 pm
loving a woman is to love indeed the wind
The wind that dances on her own crystalline chord
The wind that takes your hand, that swiftly leaves a kiss
& with a killer scent repeats, “good-bye” “so long”
loving a woman is worshipping flame or fire
a flame that with her body cooks sweetly a bread of sadness
A merciless, deep light that burning you inspires
that touches your skin with poison...

He looks to me
but he doesn't see me
He talks to me
but he doesn't hear me
He's in front of me
but we're a million miles apart
Our hearts are beating to a different tune
Everyone thinks it'll be fine soon
Just open up and tell him
It'll be okay,
This too shall pass
but it won't,
it will last and last...

i do not sing the storm
i do not sing rage, wrath
the lightning-bolt, the scream
Despair i do not sing
i do not sing struggle
-revenge poisonous blast-
the hurricane, the quake
that tears the city of peace
i do not sing no border.
i do not sing no flag
i do not sing no warrior
but she that fights all fear
Poverty & sickness-night
the blade, the club, the trap
blows, wounds, cri...

bodies tangling, intertwining
we get lost in the moment,
in the rush
drifting off to our own space
No time like the present
we’re looking for answers in the pouring rain
If you could get by
for one night
without looking for the answers
If you could
for one night
love me just the same
Everybody needs something

Two lovers traveling
meeting in the East
was letters inked
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...

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,...

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...

1: An Old Transformation
as sea ice
lay before me
by life’s swell.
the pull of her currents and tides,
her surging waves and deeps
And I knew
I could no longer navigate
we had set
so long before
As she lay before me
still, pale, cold

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, 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.

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.

With her wings.
A thousand times
He was never to be seen!!
Monday 10th September 2018 5:42 am
There were those moments
against a Cornish rock
in beach blackness
with the shush of the rippling waves
nearby in the night
in a Sussex garden
with the hot sun
dappling our backs
on a Ditchling hill
with town lights
Thursday 10th May 2018 4:30 pm
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

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

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
I savor this beautiful book of art

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
Sunday 18th March 2018 3:43 am
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
experience every part of you filling me
feel expanded and complete
love how you feel inside me
Heart touching heart
Kiss your chest
Touch your hair...

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
Or an over th...
Thursday 8th March 2018 7:00 pm
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,
Tuesday 5th December 2017 5:42 pm
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

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...

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.
Wednesday 4th October 2017 8:10 pm
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,
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. 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...

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.
raise their eyes to the heavens
in acts of worship.
Magic or science -
or just something poetic
on a spring morning?
When the sun re...

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...

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
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?...

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...

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 ...
