~Pearls~



Creamy white perfection
Silly, smooth
Strung in endless circles
Upon my skin

Each one representing
A year spent in happiness
An outward expression
Of the love he feels within

Young and in love
Each night a fantasy relived
Making love under the stars
Wearing nothing but his gift...

Years passing quickly
Our love multiplied by two
With hope and trust enduring
Passed on to love so true

This day another promise made
A vow to be forever one
A time of celebration
As we gain a son

These circles of white perfection
Silky, smooth
Now strung in endless circles
Upon her skin

To make new memories
Share new dreams
Untouched by age
Trusting in the love
That brought them to this stage

As we gaze upon the couple
So happy and in love
We remember those nights
Spent in young passion
As we celebrate the future
With the moon and stars above.

~Broken~



You and your pretense
Your airs of perfection
Your feigned concern
Using my feelings to hold me to your will

You think you are irresistible
You claim to be brilliant
Yet, you are ignorant
Of what true love really means

Sitting on your throne
Expecting people to bow to you
Thinking love is all about
Your satisfaction only

You pushed aside my love
You spurned my loyalty
You gave me nothing in return
For my everything

Years spent thinking only of you...
Loving you...giving you my all...
Just to find you never even cared

My energy expended...my faith shattered...
My heart, broken

So what now?
Am I to continue the charade?
Continue giving you all my heart can hold
While being invisible to you?

No.

Truth has been my salvation and my pain
The truth that you only love you
That you have been blinded and bought
Stripped of what once made you beautiful...
Of what made my soul long to be part of yours

How sad that for you in the end
All you will have is your reflection
Empty of the presence of one who loved all of you...
Unconditionally

I, now swept away in a tidal wave within forever...

Broken.

~The Rose~



~Gifts~

I gave my love a bright red rose
As we watched the falling snow
We embraced within the shadows
Underneath the mistletoe

Carols in the distance
Reminded us this night
Of the reason for the feeling
That makes our hearts so light

For on this night of wonder
So many years before
Came to us the gift of love
That all the world adored

Twas then the revelation
Only this season can impart
Gifts of wrap and fancy dressing
Are no match for a loving heart

So we walked amongst the trees
To a clearing far below
Where we heard the songs of Angels
Beneath the stars aglow

We stared in abject awe
At one star amongst them all
That had a special brilliance
As to us it did call

Bells rang as the trees swayed
In the incandescent light
As we gave to each other the greatest gift
On this very special night

Then we knelt and prayed under that star
For the Babe in swaddling clothes
As we laid the rose upon the ground
And our tears began to flow

For we realized the splendor
Of the true gifts from up above
Laughter, joy, friendship
Passion, faith and love

We will remember all our lives
This night spent in the snow
That he was the gift that yielded love
As the winter snow yields the Rose.

Repost of my poem for the season. Wishing you all peace, love and hope.

~Longings~



Softly he passes by
His perfectly shaped feet
Caressing the ground he walks on...

His body firm, smooth
Glistening against the reflection
Of the river bank where I lay, waiting...

The scent of honeysuckle and hibiscus
Fill the air
Intoxicating my senses...

My longing for him intense
As the noonday sun...

Slowly I rub oils on my skin
Anticipating the ecstasy that awaits...

No other thought, only to please him.

At last, he comes...
We lay among the flowers
Two lost souls now become one
Lost in each other...

My dreams of a thousand years
All fulfilled with one embrace-
One touch-
One kiss...

Apples fall from trees above us...
We eat of them-
Succulent, juicy, sweet as his love...

I pull him towards me again
My longing insatiable...

He comes into me, into my soul
My heart, my essence...

His movements as one with mine-
His mouth soft upon my skin-
His hands firm around me -

Our pleasures immeasurable...

As the summer breeze and waning sun
Give rise to the moon and stars
He takes me again in his arms

With whispers of his longing for me
Filling the scented air...
We melt into the velvet night

Never to be seen again.

~Wishes~



I want to climb the heights of heaven
In moonlight streaming endlessly
I want to lay upon the ocean's shore
Feeling the waves wash over me

I want to feel the cool soft breeze
Caressing my body, my hair, my face
I want to feel the sun bending
To hold me in a warm embrace

I want to live while life is still within me
I want my dreams to all come true
I want a Passion like none other
One that time cannot subdue

To feel your lips upon my body
To hear your voice so soft and true
To lay with you in sweet surrender
Consuming desires long overdue

This is the fulfillment I desire
To make my life worth living
For time soon takes your love away
And can be unforgiving

The moon, the sun, the heavens
The waves within your eyes I see
This wish my life to live
With you eternally.

~The Siren's Song~



Stormy skies across the sea

Dark, forboding, mystic...

Haze shrouds the moon

Anticipating the impending squall

Winds exhale, waves thrash

Keeping him from his love

His lonely heart still filled with hope

That this voyage shall lead him home

Yet desire cannot quench

the thirst of an angry sea

It tosses his dreams

overboard into the depths of despair

Gasping for breath

he calls for God's mercy

to save him from this fate

Swirls of violent blue summon him

as he calls out his beloved's name

Blackness overcomes him

as he falls deeper into the abyss

Yet a strange calm

overcomes him as he fades away...

The song, how beautiful

how lyric it's tune

Is it his beloved

calling him?

Nay, it is fate

leading him to this deserted shore...

The siren's song

the Seductress of the deep

Calling him so sweetly...

Is he to be her victim

her bewitched

her lover damned?

He must think only of his love

Of her hair as the golden sun

Her eyes as the stars in the heavens

Her lips sweet as red wine

He sees the Nymph's illusion

as she pulls him into her dimension

Her beauty unsurpassed

Yet her heart decayed

He must not give into the seduction

It is evil though like nectar to his tongue

His desire strong as she kisses him

His passions rise his thoughts not his own

How strong be his love-

the remembrance of her face?

Will it conquer his mortal lust

and defeat the executioner's song?

A keepsake floats before his eyes

The locket he was to give his love

His soul renewed he takes it as he pushes her away

surfacing to meet his true destiny...

The Siren's powers now vanquished

by the strength of a loving heart

She retreats to her watery grave

to curse him no more

His beloved greets him as he awakens

Shipwrecked for days...was it all a dream?

Had his soul reached out for redemption?

Had the sea answered his call?

As he embraces his love he pledges

Faithfulness forever

They set sail to their new future

as in the distance, the song plays on...
