Crushed Dreams

crushed

At her feet

crushed dreams

fallen from

her heart

where once upon a time

each beat brought

happiness, fulfillment

energy to the soul

hope, contentment

smile to her face

Now…

just broken pieces

scattered trash

thrown away

to die

Your Gift

Your Gift

If I were you

I would…

Read behind her eyes

     study the story

     she wants you to learn

Unearth her buried soul

     treasure its golden truth

     understand its hidden passions

Dive into her heartbeats

     find what magic

     makes them thump

     a bit faster

Dance across her skin

     remind it every day

     the beauty

     underneath your touch

Wander into her wishes

     immerse yourself

     in the wonder

     of crazy, youthful desires

Walk within her dreams

     where love bubbles

     from fountains just waiting

     for you to splash around

     in the ever-flowing joy

Sink deeply into her essence

     float through its whispers

     follow their call

     for you to feel

     every part of who she is

Wrap yourself around her

     as if she is a gift

     to yourself each day

     you cannot wait to open

Ahhh…If I were you

I would 

I would

I would

Once Again

Once again

I felt you

once again

in the autumn winds

shivers and chills

like those which covered me

in nights spent

with your hands and lips

talking love

to every part of me

And I remember

and smile

dancing through

this air of us

knowing

you are touching me

once again

No Rules

Games

How dare you put rules

to games we play

I cannot be trapped

inside boundaries

restrained from desires

I must fulfill

in ways my body leads

without my mind

free me

with conscience sound

knowing I’ll play the game

until the final prize

is mine

yet you, too, are a winner

The Letter

Dear Abby

I wrote the letter

every heartbeat

scribed in blue ink

my hand pouring forth

what no one else

would ever know

untethered dreams

we mused of

in naked nights

prayers of every tomorrow

talked out loud on aching skin

forever and afters

screamed in climaxing dances

where we invited each other’s mind

to hold hands

__

I wrote for days and nights

until our unfinished story

had no more to tell

then ripped it to shreds

sending our broken pieces

in a balloon

to where nowhere exists

My Love

My love

My love

soft yet fierce

in words

which cross your soul

in caresses

which dominate your senses

in feelings

which run rampant

among the wilds of your heart…

I am

a whisper

and a roar

and I know

you hear both

(I am behind on 31 poems in 31 days due to weekend wedding fun with my best friends who now all live apart from me.  Today I’ll try to catch up! This post will count as Day 6 and is loosely based on the prompt “conquered.”)

Fall From Grace

rose petal

He caught

her fall from grace

arms soft and strong

forgiving and embracing

he held her long

kissed sin and pain away

gently lay her

on a bed of rose petal whispers

where poetry breathed life

into hollows of her heart

beats returned

in steady rhythm

while his hand

felt each and every one

and his smile

gave promise

to her lost soul

Dare She?

princes

A young woman…

two princes in her eyes…

one held her hand for years

another just touched it

__

Magical thrills coursed through veins

where never before

was such warmth and fire

streaming giddiness

ruled her every sigh and smile

songbirds filled her mornings

with music rivaling angelic choirs

Yet how could this be?

She had another love

steady and true

her comfort and rock

always there

always there

but that was it

simply there

not a magnetism

pulling every emotion

into a carnival whirlwind

Dare she chase

where flutters led her?

Dare she chance

a dance with erratic heartbeats?

Dare she follow

mysterious whisperings of her mind?

If she did not dare

longing uncertainty

and unsung love songs

would surely

wither her soul

and she would never forgive herself

for not being brave
