I picked them up
Tried to find their place
The pieces of me
Shattered and broken
By a world that loved me
But not in the way I needed
Just when I thought
I had it together
The mirror of life
Showed me otherwise
My broken self
On display again
For the world to see
I cursed it at first
But not anymore
It brought you to me
Broken pieces in hand
You filled the gaps
Smoothed the edges
Mended me
With pieces of you
Held in place
By your love alone
Just the way I needed
Now I am not afraid
Now I like what I see
Our reflection
In the mirror of life
It comforts me
The world need not love me
You are all I need
For the rest of my days
Let it be known
I am broken no more
With you I am whole

Poetry, Writing

Broken No More

Image

I wait for you
Each second more agonizing
Than the one before
Glimpses of you
Drip through the clouds overhead
As the sea breeze blows
Carrying your warmth
Over the lines of my face
My ears are filled
With the song of the water birds
Dancing their sky dance
As I wait
For your golden kiss
To make its way
On to my skin
Turning my night to day
Pouring light
Into my world
And hope into my heart
Come soon
I beg you
My soul is waiting
For one more sunrise

Poetry, Writing

Spring Sunrise

Image

Walk with me he said
On this road with no end
Led by love alone
Take my hand and don’t let go

Walk with me she said
In healing me
Find the healing you seek
Learn who you are meant to be

Walk with me he said
Through good and bad
Triumph and loss
I will never leave your side

Walk with me she said
In my smile and in my kiss
See your true worth
My king among men

Walk with me he said
Fill the gaps in my spirit
The cracks in my person
Make me a better me

Walk with me she said
I will light your darkest hours
Shade you from the burning sun
Be the balance that you need

Walk with me they said
With one voice and one mind
Leaving all that was behind them
So their journey together began

Poetry, Writing

Walk With Me

Image

image

It moves
Across the distance
Between us
Brings each breath
You’ve let escape
Into me
On it you ride
In memories
In daydreams
They wash over me
Remind me
Of your skin
Fragrant
As spring rain
Of your smile
Refreshing
My soul itself
It stirs the trees
Bending
Rustling
Singing
The sweet sound
Of your name
While tall grasses
Sway
And new leaves
Dance
It finds me
Here
In the space between
Dusk and dawn
My eyes closed
My heart open
Silently wishing
It blows once again
Bringing more of you
To me
Until I have all
And we both can savor
This breeze
Together

Poetry, Writing

Breeze

The sky fills with stars
Then goes to just one
Again and again
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
I do so tirelessly
For a moment with you
Is worth it all
The pain and tears
The longing and fears
That come and go
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
To be without you
Is to be without my heart
Beating in my chest
Pushing life through my body
And your love through my veins
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
The night is long
And silence unkind
Leaving me with my thoughts
Driving my heart to madness
Yearning for your touch
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
Forever yours
Eternity my goal
I pledge my love to you
Again and again
Until your return
I will remain
Waiting for you
My Lord
My love

Poetry, Writing

Radha

Image

I remain
Hidden from your sight
Just to be with you
My love

My desire
Consumes me
Each moment we’re apart
Burning me alive
Scratched skin
And a careless look
The spark

For every way
You are mine
Is a reason to hide
And pray
For when the darkness comes

Cloaked in night
To you I fly
Wings stretched wide
To blot the starlight
And bare my all
To you alone

Here
Where eyes matter not
All is made clear
With pressed lips
That part briefly
Only to whisper sweetness
Unmatched
By divine nectar

Kissing your eyelids
I pray them shut
Before I leave
This earthly plane
Silently
I curse the morning light
And take my place
Hidden in the sun
With tears in my eyes
Until night joins us
Again

Poetry

And Cupid Wept

Image

Wielding
Wish and desire
I strike
At the soul
Within the stone
That dwells
In my daydreams

Delicately
I free her
With every blow
From the limits of fantasy
To my unlimited reality

She takes shape
Beneath my hands
Becomes known
To my eyes

With every moment
I spend
In her presence
Her lines extend
Beyond the mind
And into my soul

Envisioning
Smiles
That have not curled
Words
That have not formed
Kisses
That have not flown
I shape the mouth
That I would savor
For an eternity

I draw the lines
Of her hair
Flowing in waves
From the head
That holds memories
Of a life not yet lived
Captivating me
With every bend
And a fragrance
Unknown to stone

The chisel sings
The tones of her voice
As she calls out to me
With arms wide
Legs astride
And a body
That feels like home
My shelter
My safety

Complete
In every way I know
She stands before me now
So full of life
But not breathing
Restrained
By a daydream
The hands of Fate
Can reach

With hands empty
Heart open
I pray
For Aphrodite’s gaze
Grant this fool’s wish
To feel you
See you
Love me
As I have always loved you
My Galatea

Poetry

Galatea

Image

My lady of midnight
Walking endlessly along
The pathways of my heart
Hoping to reach me

I remain waiting
For your return
To see your breath
Dance in the cold night air
To hear dead leaves crackle
Beneath your feet
To feel the warmth of your hand
As it gets lost in mine

Your memory comes alive
In those fleeting hours
Between the suns
When the world sleeps

We danced our endless waltz
For no one but you and I
Out of sight
Yet in full view
Our hearts became one
And now beat on
Into eternity

On that night
Stuck in the tangle
Of lips and limbs
You uttered the words
That left me with none in return
Truth in every letter
Farewell in every space

Alone
I watch the sands slip by
Powerless to change their flow
As they move the hands
A minute at a time
My breath held firmly
Eyes wide
I pray
For midnight to come again

Poetry

Domina Noctis

Image

forever-fi

With those hands
I love so dear
Rip me open
Separate the pieces
Break me down
To the place
Where humanity and divinity meet
My spirit
My soul
Because I want you
And want you to see
That I am nothing
And you are everything
I have set aside myself
For you my love
Forever
Witness why
You consume me
Defeat me
Sustain me
Let your fingers dive
Into me
Deeper
Deeper still
Until you can hold it
Hold me
Hold you
In your grasp is
Beauty eternal
Love everlasting
Me
Forever
Pull it towards you
The you I am
The real you
Find yourself in me
I am
The infinite shelter
Relentless protector
Unceasing servant
Of the immortal you
My love
You are safe here
Within me
Beneath this tangle of
Flesh
Blood
Bone
And here you will remain
Forever

Poetry

Forever

blink-fi
My eyelids fall
There you are
In bits and pieces
In clips and phrases
The lines of your hips
The curve of your smile
The shape of your fingers
The sound of your laughter
My senses come alive
Yet I search for breath
It was swept away
Along with my heart
Stolen by you
In an instant
Never to be returned
Forever yours
My eyelids rise
Here you are not
And you won’t be
Until I blink again

Poetry, Writing

Blink
