Poetry Blogs (2018, Lovers)
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!!

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

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

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...

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,

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.

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...

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
the church in...

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 ...
