Shame

For many years I walked in shame

With my head bowed down not looking anyone in the eyes

Shame for not being good enough

Shame for not being wanted nor loved

I sat in darkness wondering if I would ever be able to find light

Sat there wondering, if I would ever be worthy or enough

Then a voice whispered in my ear, " I am here."

The voice got louder and yelled, " I am here."

Lost and Found

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 envelope me
to have our hands intertwine
to graze my fingers across your body and across your lips
to rest my hand on your cheek
to lo...

In Search of Mermaids and Lighthouses

In search of mermaids and lighthouses is where you will find him and me.

Seeking sea things sets us free from daily monotony, broken hearts, Advil bodies.

We thrift shop with childlike wonder, forgetting about adult things like settling debts, stagnant relationships, mortality.

Mermaids and lighthouses beckon us to dive into a green-flag ocean of time where life is sublime.

Falling Alone

She studied the picture one last time, memorizing each pixel that made up his face. 

Her evenings were quiet and her mornings were rushed, but not a moment went by where she didn’t think of him. Oh sure, she found ways to distract herself from letting her mind wander, only each time she paused she began to ask “What If”. 

They left things in such a strange place that she felt too apprehensiv...

How Do I Love Thee

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.

I love you wax poetic
about life, love, dreams.

I love you wish upon stars
and count your blessings.

I love you continue to love
with a thousand holes in your heart
and soar with broken wings.

I love how you speak to my soul
without saying a thing.

Love

Shining ever so bright
a beacon of hope, like a chinese lantern
photosynthesis get' me through the night
beauty so divine, i wonder if i could map her
would the geometry show me the light?
because she must be god's best work

my third eye look through the peephole
how can she not have walls up when she deals with these people
guide me, be my mentor
would you take my hand, and put this flow...

Personal

in your essence I sense resplendence
could do no wrong by me, your personably impressioned defendant
your honor is what I strive for
it's why the day turns to night, sun and moon argue back and forth
fight about what's wrong and who's right, tug of war
light bends but doesn't break, shines through the prism, and is perceived in different waves

I met you once but my memory is starting to fade...

Blurred Lines

Echoing words through my head

Of all the sweet things that you said

Of times and memories of what we used to do 

Just a little thing to see me through

 

My dear, it's clear 

We aren't what we used to be

My dear, I fear

That’s the way it’s supposed to be

 

Blurred lines are once again made clear

It’s you with her

And me with him

That’s the way it should be in ...

rigorous exercise, training my mind
the center of my world, I give you my due diligence
love to watch me write by candle light, would you guide my hand and evoke my true penmanship

law of attraction, I cast it out, and ask around
I question myself, then take affirmative action
groundbreaking truths shatter walls, somebody hand me my protractor

Matriarch

 

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

Chalk Initials

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

loving a woman (from love sonnets)

entry picture

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...

Sad Valentine

💔 Today I ached so deep in my heart for you 

Yet my tears where all in vain, and wasted

You don't want me, you never have really care

A fool I throw myself at you, I love you dearly

24/7 I pray you will be mine, yet your with her

There is no real love why should you care

My head thinks about you 24/7 can't stop it

I am deeply in love and I honestly admit

loveValentine

For those of us unrequited this day

single day awareness now does loom
not married or taken? apparently it spells doom
but if i can't have you tomorrow
my thoughts surely can
i'll send some admiration 
best believe it man
type a message, or say something nice
"Sealed with a loving kiss" as the olde romantics say
not thinking twice

because if there's a next time around
I want a lover, not a taker
and sing so sweet to her...

A storm of my own creation

A storm of my own creation, a beauty she is,  but don't come near cause I'm afraid. she is the best, strong and peaceful from a distance but a monster when threatened, she came to me with her clear watery eyes, hazel brown eyes with splinters of dark sprawn like a rough touch of a poets brush, be warned they are the main suspect of the source and energy that powers my storm, standing tall to the c...

You

I tell you that I love you, you are loved dearly by me 
You don't say a word as you say its never going to be 
I know I am foolish to love, when we have never met
The last 21 years I have totally loved you don't forget

Sometime we get on ok, we laugh you make me smile
I pray that you could love me and show it for a while
You resist saying its never going to happen no way

Hansel's Universe

entry picture

I don’t want to look up at the sky anymore
for it terrifies me
the stars have never been more than crumbs of the universe
laymen wish upon
and suddenly I find myself
tracing your eyes
nose
and the bottom of your chin
along constellations complex
crumbs that leave a path
tiny pieces of you
that lead me home

Why I Can't Tell You I Love You

you cannot shut the whole world off as
and when you please.
i was fifteen
my mother, forty-five, fighting
an incessant war with my headphones.
fewer words,
our days were outlined more with
slammed doors and dour glares,
conversations prisoned behind the fear
of exposing the soft-
ness in the way our hearts beat
or pumped blood
or ruptured
to spill over that   much    love. our hands

like snowflakes on my tongue

Breathing.

An automatic bodily function,

we don't have to think, we just do.

From our first screaming breath, our in utero breathing, our final gasp.

We breathe.

But every breath is different.

This is my calming, in through the nose and out through the mouth, breath,

This is my deep breath and count to 10 that stops me losing my temper.

This is my quick breath when I'm teaching and talki...

Breathe Again

I step out into the darkness
with the sky lit above me
The orb has reached its full potential 
and I am reminded of the beauty around me
The twinkling above is the same as it’s always been
but much brighter than I’ve allowed myself to see
Somewhere out there under the same sky
you’ve been thinking of me
and I can finally breathe again

Valentine's Wish

entry picture

Don’t get me wrong

I often long for chocolate;

but

hand-crafted,

heart-shaped,

tied with a bow,

seems more about show

than any love that I know.

 

I value your time

more than a sweetly, slick rhyme.

Your words have more worth

than a purchased verse;

tenderness

whispered, in private

has more meaning.

 

Choose genuine over saccharine.

Be present,...

Smile


Many days I was in darkness
Many days I cried for help
Seeing no beauty in this world
I forgot what it felt like to smile and not feel pain
A simple act of kindness
Will you come here and slide with me?
A simple question
A simple task
Sliding down the slide made me smile
And feel the love of God

You made me do it

You're so impossible
you are selfish
you are difficult
you cause me so much trouble
I've only got this angry with you
you provoked me
you're unreasonable 
you aren't like your brother
you never help
I never get this cross with anyone else
you made me hit you
I lost control because of you
you are defective
but I love you
so all is ok 

everything is possible with me

Kindred Spirits

How can it be that you 

are on the same 

spiritual path as me...

God exists as 

infinite energy.

We keep coming back 

as various entities 

until we learn

life lessons 

from history.

Love is eternal 

as it should be.

Writing is our way of

understanding everything.

We cross oceans of time 

to find our flame. 

Kindred spirits we are, 

lost and lonely...

How Many Times

How many times

have you been in love?

How many times

have you let your heart

take off the gloves?

How many times

have you thanked

the good Lord above

for sending your soulmate

to be your one true love? 

How many times?

Once is enough.

Twice is nice.

Three times is divine!

You Have My Heart

When you give someone your heart

They have it and that's just that

There's no feeling of loss or of something missing 

Simply joy as you realised you had it to give

And gave it willingly, without doubt

Knowing it sits safe with the one you love

You have my heart

Being with you

The world would be a sad place without you:

with you, is everything.

I love being with you.

I love the feel of your warm breath on my face

as we lay side by side.

I breathe in your essence 

as we embrace

and as I lay on your chest

feeling you rise and fall.

Skin on skin.

I am content,

full to the brim with the warmth of your love.

I am held, secure,

complete.

Myself

entry picture

I see myself in a cerulean blue sea of balance 

with depths of ultramarine.

I am an island of content in cadmium yellow with fringes of frivolous lemon yellow

and hints of passionate alizarin crimson.

In orbit around me are my family, friends and loved ones

who are moons of solid ochre yellow love.

They hold me.

This is my tiny portion of the universe.

My world.

Que Sera Sera

I loved you.

You loved me.

We lived life 

in perfect harmony,

wild and free...

Until some pretty young thing 

lured you away from me 

lies replaced honesty, 

trust evaporated completely. 

Now we spend our days

dreaming, separately 

of how good life used to be. 

Que sera sera, 

You love you.

I love me.

Without possession,

Awaiting the Day

I drop you a line
Hours later in time
I wait for your reply
What will it be
Excite me, please

I’m thinking of you
Please God, let it be true
You’ve been thinking of me, too

The pulsing and racing heart
Awaiting the day we’re sprawled out in the sheets
Please let us be
Like we dream it will be

Salty, sweet dreams of our bodies
Tangling and beating to the rhythms 
Flowing through...

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

While he simply adored her,

And, come their exertions together,

The world became irrelevant,

Never could he altogether dismiss their loves temporary element,

Conjured from the role played by Distance,

The hated protagonist

In a novella which tells the tale,

Of a romance not fully realised,

Of loving and losing,

Of missing her

Elation

Often, during rare nights of tumultuous sleep,

I imagine happenings not yet bestowed upon me,

With which such feelings of elation accompany,

Because, at long last,

I have found her,

And she has found me

Component

It is the case, it seems,

That all through life,

We have our dreams, our jobs, our strife,

Yet at the ever approaching moment,

What's on our mind?

A trivial component?

No, I have more faith than this,

We surely must think of all we have loved,

That first glance, that last kiss,

The family where we felt beloved,

So at the ever approaching moment,

I hope to feel love...
