Samples

From nowhere,a face visions. Into a day of countless missions, Awkward to grasp emotional bliss. Wanton of much,the invisible kiss. Seeking contentment,equality gain Running wild,blind the same. Grasping handfulls of transparant air Will she be gone,or stay the dare>? Will she to me,as me to she Or run the mile,or will we be. One moment more,a seconds grasp Dissalusions more to pass. Here she be inside my head Floating awareness, More wanton shed, A passing soul,take my hand... Cross road meeting,here we stand. Knowing now,something new, Heart fluttering,to be knowing you. ............................................... Sense your soul,then see your face, Touch your wisdom,passing grace. Feeling this not on my own, As has your wanton seed been sown. Seeking thoughts,yours to mine, Spiritually we are entwined. Moments aware of a succulant force, Then invisible shields steer us off course. Distracting your aura from me,fails, Instead of which a growth prevails. Until that time engulf as done, Then silence stills to be as one. .............................................. Tasting you with my thoughts Touching you with all thats sought. Sense your sweetness touching mine, Moments and seconds all stopping in time. Feelings to emotions Cant stop devotions. On a journey,take your hand, Leading to a place we stand. Lay you down, Here by my side. Taking journeys, Waves of tide. Reap the harvest,sow the seed, Riding hollows of wanton need. Wake the morn,your still here, Turn to face,and draw you near. .................................. I saw life as a shadow, Passed by behind infront That left me in a hollow Then no breath to follow Crossing over to paralell lines Looking down on empty times Fallen from a perch of height Lifes shadow fallen out of sight. One step forward,closed my eyes Reaching up I touch desires Slipping back to hollows more Devotions away through blackened flaws Struck by your light,yet cannot see Blurring vision blackens free Hop scotch patterns fraternize Blinded by absent ties. Desserts yellow,I,speck of sand Just a magicians slight of hand Roughened edges,soffened might Flick the switch,turn out the light. ................................ Silently I cradle your non presence As the wind shuffles around me Infinitely the world is portrayed As you lay here inside my mind Crispy hedge rows below the towering barley Dance to the sun showered orange Tiny droplets of water fall oddly Mellowing into the pool of splattered mirrors Blue skies stretch the heavens I call your name,echoing into solitude Hoping that you hear me. Truth beckons .............................. Strolling onwards,roots to bound, Crossing pathways ready found. Rolling waves return to rest. On the edge of sandy crest. Bitter breeze warms with pace, Isolation in this place Waves expanse reflecting sea Serenity as peace in me Ramblers in pairs trekking in sand On a marathon to another land. Rushind whisps of breezing air Catching me,...unaware! Heart beat racing,sweat appears Aching limbs as progress nears Here inside my thoughts despair A lonliness I am aware Could I but one,yet youth aside Escape the fears from which I hide. Open doors that close no will Destiny a blinding shrill. Perhaps to be one soul one mind On a journey yet to find Beyond the hopes of timid ground Where once I walked with head astound Retrack the steps to seek progress Or step aside and seek success. ......................................... Seeking out just a like minded depth, Wanton of little,one small breath. Not to invade another space, Just be part of the invited place. Somewhere thats peace,without the pain, Without the hell of those that game. Impossible missions,constant the task, Shadowed by the imposters mask. Trust begins then hopes die, Then here you are,and the smile is alive. ............................................... Imagination Imagined I have of dancing with you, Imagine is all I know I can do, Imagination is the far cry, Should you decide to walk on by. Shut my eyes and it will be A change of life for you and me.? Chances are taken,a risk without fear, Imagination may bring you near. Distance is miles not weeks and a day, Imagination seeks a way. ............................................. Riding waves,splashing senses, Imagination reeps intensities, Refelections mime the shadows searching Reams of being,absence flirting. Inquisitive smiles,Glazed over eyes, Silent dreams roaming wide. Defining want beyond words shared, Read between lines,if we dared. Blanking questions,with answers bared. Crossing over new bound lanes, Distance savours in your name. Tracking miles as ink lines grow Comfort zones expand the flow. Touching auras ........................................... Static Pictures Sun shines through the mists of frost, Tiny droplets frozen as lost. Glisten the shadows,trees boldly stand, Whistle the willow,strength of the land. Tarmac is white,where rubber is weak, Slip sliding backwards,forward too deep. Turmoils too beckon the ice age reborn, Awake the dew,too torment the morn. .............................................. Pleasure your company Inside my head, Imagination seeks content Harmony a distant dream, Reality is as it seems. As you live your world,your choice, Thoughts prevail the silent voice. Crossroads meeting Here we stand, Journeys chance Another land. Or stay the shells that inward bound, Silence echoes whispers found ............................................... Radiate colours bold Sharing thoughts that we unfold, From a darkness came a light Prisms of colour,beyond the light. A life change,a moment,a grasp as done, The whispering words from where there were none. Succulant flavours flow through souls door Inviting a journey To a knowledge of more. One to one an equality bound Whether friends or lovers we are to be bound A flicker of light, A chance to enhance A distance now closing,heart to heart. ............................................... Wisdom She the wisdom of my mind, The journey that we make. The answers for our being, Of questioned miles too take. Silent crys widen,in this strength heartbeat, Roaming the shadows,beneath our tiring feet. Searching the darkness to fulfill a brighter night, Nourishing the reasons to create a lasting light. Combining strengtha,then we are one, Touching craters of infinites sum. Time recaptures in dark unfounded choice, As uniting our emotions,in the unspoken voice. Mind felt the moment,touches then the soul, Competeing for the seconds,too be as one and whole. Auros entwine as the echos ache too seal, Senses speak in silence,fragments gained too feel. ............................................ .......................................... A moment in time stopped by to inhale My soul in its reckoning to you couldnt fail To find by voice a sweetness to embrace Awakening to see vour beautiful face Too seek out your soul that enlightens from inside Thats precious and kind thats been impossible too find. As if by fate we are entwined into friends None too compare,that life has sent. ................................... Pat Beauty is too me, In moderation if you see? It is applied in parts, To that..perhaps a plant Or maybe then again, To the sound of falling rain? It could be in the mind If in it we could find, Another word to suffice the same Or to conclude,it may well be, You,which is beauty,in all to me. ............................................ Pat You are my reason for being, The essence of lifes restart. The breath of life I breathe Next to our loving hearts. As time unfolds, as touching hearts, As days pass on to weeks. The months ahead will turn to years As you of I, we seeked. One more day,then one more kiss, One more touch we cannot miss. One moment grasped then one more gained, To hours then seconds, to curb lovers pain. In harness of your love I live, The precious harmony to each we give. One second more is never enough, Embracing this, is knowing love. This journey in time, This moment as ours. Where the roads ahead, Are choices in hours..... Of weeks of moments,..... Of now and beyond. Decisions in ernest, Where our life will rest. ........................................... Friday at the waters edge Erasing through its journey made, Ripples and bubbles on riverbank laid. Churning the curving,cascading sound, Music in splashing,destinys bound. Shadows the rocks,engulfing its bed, Along the watery sodden edge. Wet As ice,transparent as glass, Destinations,…here;..then pass. Over a ragged rock it glides, Leaving a smudge as if nowhere too hide, A glistening stain to colour green, As moss devours its food as seen. From the midsts a barkless stump, Rises bluntly like a statues hump. Once a proud momument then of green, Dead in the water,as the sacrificed stream. ...................................... Inside I sense a parallel Defining peace too bring, Too touch your heart is beautiful Where you touched mine,within, .......................................... Through the sacrifice of torment, The perils of wanton scope, The depth of wasted journeys Yet ours was full of hope. Re live our lives as day one starts…. Could of changed whats in our hearts, Now the roads we travel to Done apart in all we do. ........................................ Travellers on a mission, Mistakes that reap the years, Missing is the agony Time will wipe the tears. ........................................... 'You are the light that shines through the windows of my eyes' ........................................... It is the freagrance of your life that enchants me,as does the essence of your dreams, Without compromise or fear I adore your very being. ............................................... She shines a light, ---Where there is dark. Comforts where there is sorrow--- Opening dawns morrow. ----Asking of nothing Seeking something Travelling somewhere Journey nowhere. Soul survivor of traumas spent, Time unfolds,for moments lent. Etching a sketch,a portrait of being, Within her own destiny,for all too be seeing. Where there is dark, ---She shines the light Beholding the beauty On destinys flight. ............................................... She shines a light

You have a strong poetic style. My favorite was dated 11/4/10. I liked the whole thing but my favorite lines were:

Feelings to emotions

Cant stop devotions.

Love the way you captured that - been there. Great job.
