Creamy white perfection
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
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.

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

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.

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-
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.

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.

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
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 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
They set sail to their new future
as in the distance, the song plays on...
