For I have love
 
 
Should I lose my eyes, should I ne'er see again.. . .
So be it, I will not fear the darkness
For I have seen all there is to see
I have seen love
Should I lose my hands, should I never touch again. . ..
So be it, I will not fear the absence of touch
For I have touched everything
I have touched love
Should I lose my mouth, should I ne'er taste again. . ..
So be it, I will not fear losing my mouth
For I have experienced all the flavors there are
I have tasted love
Should I lose my hearing. . ..
So be it, I do not fear the deafening silence
For I have heard all there is to hear
I have heard love
Should I lose my life. . ..
So be it, I will not fear losing my life
For I have experienced all there is in life
I have experienced love

I Miss You
 
 
I miss you
This night is torn by storms
I miss you
I look up to the skies
I miss you
You're not in my loving arms
I miss you
I can't see you with my eyes
I'm looking for you
In the heavens above
My eyes full of tears
My heart full of love
Inside I feel so lost and alone
When I am not with you
I'm not at home
I miss you

In Search of the Fire
 
 
I have looked long into the sun today.
I burn my eyes in search of the love I want, desire. . ...need.
Many hours have passed this day but alas, no love.
Many hours to wander throughout the night
In search of what I am beginning to believe,
Is not there.
The crescent moon opens wide her arms
Bidding me, "Come rest in my embrace"
I yearn for her touch
I want so much to be held
This lonely night
The flame of passion has died
It lies in my belly, a burning ember
Would that a gentle wind blow this night
Within me ignite the flames of love once more
Bring to my soul the fire of life
Lift my heart from the depths of despair
Let my passion burn brightly
For all to witness
For you to feel

In The Cold
 
 
Cold today
Very cold
Outside the snow falls
Gently so, the big flakes land
The trees, kissed by the cold
Entombed in white
Snow and ice
Within the tomb
A life lies dormant
A heart lies still
Oh but for the warmth of love
Oh but to feel a loving touch
To quicken these cold and lifeless limbs
To startle the still heart from sleep
Life and love now course my veins
Bound no more by deaths reins
Entombed no more in the ice and snow
No longer is it cold
Basking in the glow of your light
Living in the world of your love

Longing for you
 
 
Sunlight
Long and low in the nightfall sky
Slowly
The day that was is waning away
Quietly
The night comes to me to darken my world
Quickly
My heart begins to pound in fear
Deafening
Are the sounds that fill my night
Afraid
Am I, shaking, quivering, cold and alone
Longing
Am I, for the morn, for the sun
For you

The Sea
 
 
I sit by the sea
Looking out over its vast expanse
I am drawn to it
I feel its power
You are the sea
Your are the tide and I the surf
Crashing are your waves upon me
Beating down my resistance
I am now weakened
You are the gentle undertow
Lulling me out to sea
Drawing me deeper and deeper into the sea
Into you
Slowing enveloping me in your robes of water
Taking my will from me, my life from me
You are the sea
Enveloped in your mind
Cradled by your desires
Caressed by your words
I die in your arms

The Snow Falls

 

Snowing today, heavily so
Likened to a downfall
Of miniature snowballs
Each one makes a sound
When it strikes its target
Tic, Tic, Tic......
The sound of a watch
Keeping time
Reminding me
Of how long it's been
Since
I last saw you
Tic, Tic, Tic.......
The snow falls
Outside
A reminder
Of you

To Love and not Know
 

What an existence this is
To have feelings
But not able to share
To have only visions
Of a life so fair
To have only words
To show that we care
To one day meet...
Do we dare?
This wonderous love
Alas not to be
For within our lives
are those other than we
Therefore forever
I with her, you..he
This is the future
For now I see...

Created
 

Would that the air you breathe
Make its way to my lungs
And fill me with your life
Would that your blood could course my veins
That I could share that which makes you live
Within my viscera I am alive with you
Would that the energy within your spirit
Combine with that in mine
And together create a new being
And that being be known as....
Us.

A Friend
 

Would that a friend
E'er come my way
To make special

Not many, but few
Such is the friend

Her portrait in my mind
 

For to describe her beauty
With words
Would surely destroy
Her image in my mind
The picture I have painted
On my minds canvas
Can only exist there
It cannot be brought forth
To paper, to parchment
To any means of sharing
With anyone else
The portrait of my love
Would that these hands
E're attempt to draw
To write, to capture
My loves essence
On any manner of media
Other than my own mind
Would most necessarily be
The end of my love

Waiting for you
 

Was it the crisp biting wind
Perhaps the chill on my upper lip
From the frost that had formed there
Upon my mustache
With each breath I exhale
Even more frost appears on the very tips
Of the little bristle of hair
Forming the likeness
Of snow covered eaves
Covering my lips
The cold sends shivers
Through my body
Deep within me
I am chilled
As I wait for you
To come and collect me
From the train station
At the end of my workday
No matter how cold I am
Thoughts of you warm me as I wait

Yes it's love

 

Is it love that makes me feel this way
As you cross my mind throughout the day
Is it love that makes me feel so good
Like I never thought I ever could
Is it love that makes me go as far
As to grab a hold of a shooting star
And to ride that star across the sky
While my heart sings and my soul flies
Yes it's love
In every way it's love
Yes it's love
A gift from angels above
Yes it's love
For you I have this love
Yes it's love

A PATHWAY TO YOU
 
 
The clouds below
Lined up in a row
Forming a path
A pathway to you.
From where I am seated
The path looks completed
It winds its way about
This pathway to you.
As I gaze upon this lane
Other thoughts and desires wane,
You fill my mind as I walk
This pathway to you.
Amidst the clouds and air
I know what is always there.
Waiting for me at the end
Of this pathway to you.
There you will be
There waiting for me
There at the very end
Of this pathway to you..

Her Hair

 

Her hair
Flows
Gently cascading about her shoulders
It caresses her neck
It outlines her face
A picture frame no man could e're construct
Her hair
Soft and light
Sweetly scented
Lightly curled
A delight to behold
A splendor to touch
A lovely woman she is

Her Scent
 
 
Her scent on my mind
Filling my thoughts
With memories of days, minutes
Precious moments
Forever imprinted on the pages of my memory
Emblazoned on the landscape
Of my days gone by
Amazing though it is
But for the chance moment
A breeze, subtle and gently blowing
Should bring with it that tender scent
Stirring my thoughts, carressing my mind
Opening my memories
A tender scent carried on the wind
Re-ignites the embers
Glowing in my soul
Now burning brightly
With thoughts of you
Images of you
Dreams of you

More reasons to love you...more!
 
 
The more we're together, the more things we share
The more we find new ways to show that we care
More sunshine surrounds us more fears melt away
More flowers are blooming on any given day
More hopes are alive now, more plans and dreams too
And they all seem more likely, to one day come true
More meaningful moments, more talks. . .heart to heart
More thinking of each other any time we're apart
More laughter, more nonsense, more joys "just our own"
More hours we cherish to be all alone
More love than we've ever been part of before
More reasons for me to keep loving you more.

Reflections
 
 
When I gaze into the heavens
I see you looking back at me
You are the light of the sun
That greets me and fills my morn
Your brightness colours my world
Your warmth envelops me
As the day slowly wanes
And the sun is but a mere
Deep red glow on the horizon
I feel a new warmth behind me
I turn to see you once again
You've become the full moon and
Once again you are my light
Only now you fill my night
And the millions of stars that surround you
Are our thoughts of love for each other

Seasons
 
 
The summer winds
bring thoughts of you.
The warmth you instill
in my heart is akin
The gentle Autumn breeze
lights upon my skin.
It reminds me of your touch
Deep within my viscera I am moved
The winter gusts call
your presence to me.
The crisp excitement that
arouses the soul, you instill.
The spring Zephyrs gently
remind me of you.
The tenderness of your touch
rustles my emotions.

The Key
 
 
The longer you look
The more things you find
Things you were not even looking for
A shoe, a button, a book
Treasures yes, unlike in kind
A key to a long locked door
But not a door like any you've seen
Not a door with hinges and handle
Not a door to enter or depart
Behind this door is where love has been
Burning brightly as a candle
This my love is the door to my heart
With your hand firmly grip this key
Unlock the door and let it swing wide
Come in and claim what is rightfully yours
From this moment on our souls will be free
No more will my heart need to hide
The love we have shall not be bound by doors

With Thoughts of You

 

With thoughts of you
Coursing every crevice of my mind
Every thought old or new
Is treasured in kind
Is it possible to live
Without you a real life
All I have, to you I give
From husband to wife
I would whither perhaps even die
If not for the life in me you breathe
Every breath, every word and sigh
Fills me with life
As from your lips
They leave

To these eyes.........

..........You are beautiful.

From your nose to your toes and all points in between
A lady to be loved
To be explored and enjoyed
To be comforted
To be looked upon as friend, as lover, as life companion
To be immortalized in a memory of all a woman can offer to a man
A woman you are
Beautiful to me
To these eyes
Dwell not upon what you see in the mirror
The true woman stands before the mirror
In all her beauty
Perhaps hidden to her eyes, but not to mine.
Imagine me standing behind you
The mirror before us
Both free of clothing
My arms about you, covering your breasts
Your arms reachng up and holding mine
My head to one side slightly that you can see my face completely
Now imagine that picture in your mind
Imagine this as a portrait of our love
Emblazoned upon our minds canvas
Eternally

Love When You Least Expect It
 
So why is it when you least expect it
Love falls into your life
You've made no plans for it
You've not expected it
Just one day
Poof!
There it is
Now, each day seems a little more new than before
Each moment seems both,
Longer and shorter...
Longer when you're apart
Shorter when you're together
Amazing though it is
So many things you've seen before
You now see as new
Tedious chores
Now are welcome.....
Washing dishes together
Painting the rooms of the new house
Hanging clothes out
Then folding them together
Making the bed (and tussling it again!)
Shopping
So much fun
With your love
Hand in hand
Noticing her ever present smile
Telling him how nice he looks
Love is changing you both
In so many ways
How can it be
You're both your own persons
Individuals
Yet, now you
Think as one
Dream as one
Love as one
Feel as one
Wish as one
Pray as one
Live as one
So amazing it is
How much of your lives
Are so entwined
Meshed
Bonded
Never would either of you
Believed in your life
Before love
That one day
Either of you
Could be so much
In tune with
In touch with
In need of
In sync with
The other
Two persons
Now one being
Two bodies
Now one heart
Two minds
Now one soul
Forever to be as one
Giving back to nature
With newly created life
From these two bodies
Will new life spring forth
Here again from two, one
One new life
To carry on the love
Of the two that created
This new life
And one day
When it is least expected
Poof!
That new life
Will find love
In another
And the cycle
Begins again
And just how beautiful
Is that????

Oh To Be .......

Oh to be in person...
To feel our passion
Your desires
To attempt to satiate
Yours
Mine
Ours
To fill the voids
To complete the circle
To know you and I both
Have come to attain
A place at the pinnacle
Of life, of love
Together.

Coming Home
 
Do you feel my presence as I am on my way home to see you?
Do you anticipate my touch on your face,
Your breast,
Your womanhood?
Can you sense my getting ever closer to our town,
Our street,
Our home,
Our room,
Our bed...
Do you feel the fire growing,
Burning desires,
Passions aflame
Within us,
Oh so deep within us
The swell of loves tide is building,
Readying to crash upon our souls
As I enter our front door
Our eyes meet,
Locked in each others gaze,
We touch,
We embrace,
We kiss,
We make love....
Can you feel me.......
.....coming home?

I NEED YOU...
 
 
To need you is to know life.
Life is only given to those who need.
If you need no one, you do not know life.
To live is to know need.
I need you........
You live in me
Your breath is mine
Your blood is mine
Your life's essence is mine
I need you........
To not need you
Would be to say I am complete
Without you I am missing life.
Without life I am nothing
With you, I am everything
I love you
Now and forever
I will always love you
No one else
Ever will have my heart
I've given it to you.
I love you

I DREAM


My heart and mind are filled with thoughts of you
I dream of the first touch of your tender lips melting on to my own
And forever marking your place in my heart
I dream of our hands touching for the first time
I dream of the beating of our hearts
As we anticipate the passions that we will share together
I have all these feelings running through me
As I dream and desire the sheer ecstasy
We will indulge and ignite in each other
When our bodies become one for the first time
I dream of the splendor of loving
That only you and I can share with each other
I dream of the places in me that I long to share with only you
As my soul comes to rest after our first time of making love
I dream of being held in your arms and falling asleep
Knowing when I awake you'll still be holding me
As I have dreamed of so many times before
I await the special love, desires and intimacy
That we have saved for each other
No one can hold me or touch me or embrace my very soul
That I have saved for you
Put your hand in mine and I will take you places
No one could ever take you
I will give you feelings you've never felt before
And a sweet and tender love
That will ignite passions so deep with in us
That there is nothing but sensual love and delight
As I write these words I am immersed in desire
Within every inch of my being
I want to feel all of you with my body, my soul
Take my hand and touch my soul
That longs to be a part of you
I believe in you
I believe in us
I am a dreamer too
I believe with every breath I take
I can give you love like you have never known
That you will find only within my heart and my passions
For you...............

HE DOES NOT KNOW YOU 
 

He does not know how you like
To have the back of your head cradled
Or how you like to have your necked rubbed just that way
He has not a clue how you breathe
When you are totally excited
Or when you are at rest
He doesn't think about how his words
Will affect you, hurt you
He has no idea how many words you hold back
Because you cannot cause another pain
He has no inkling of what it is
That sets you free
That lets you fly without wings
That lets you die only to live again
He will never know what it is he has
In his bed at night
The woman,
The passionate woman
The delicate woman
The seductive temptress
The intense lover
The quiet lover
The orgasmic lover
Who in one breath will
Take you in gently
Into her nether regions
And there let you take control
And enjoy you for all you are
But somewhere along the journey
She will dispense with the quiet self
And come alive
Roll you over and mount you
Drive herself onto you
Grinding herself deeper and deeper
Onto you, almost into you
She will hold you down
Take your hands in hers
And pin you to the floor
Her strength unwilling
Unable are you to fight back
Nor do you wish to
The animal unleashed
Has come alive
And nothing will stop her
Until she is satiated
For the moment
But only for the moment

No, he does not know you
Not in the past
Not now
And not in the future
He will never know
The you
I have come
To know

To Be Together, We Must Part

To love you is to miss you
Missing someone is a hard thing to do.
But, not missing someone can be harder.
Not missing someone is to not know love.
To not know love is to be completely empty.
I am not empty, nor am I anywhere near it.
I am so full of love for you, I will never....
Not miss you!

It is with my heart breaking,
And my soul aching,
That I walk away from you.
I don't want o do it.
I do know that for now..........
I must.
To be able to have a future with you, with us..........
We must both understand our past's,
And live our present's.
Our time will come.
Our lives will be one.
Together we will wake to a morning sun.
And begin our new life.................
As one.

The First Time
 
 
The first time I saw you
I felt a calm come over me
Like that of being enveloped by a warm body of water
Like going back home
To a place in that only existed in my dreams
So peaceful was the moment
We caught each others eyes
That first glance
That first smile
That first hello
That first time
I still recall it from time to time
So fresh in my memory is the vision
So warm in my mind are the remnants
Of the fire that kindled that day
A blaze has since sprung forth
From that first time
That first fire
And forevermore will it burn bright
In our hearts
In our souls
In every fibre of our being
Beyond death will it burn
Should I die before you
I will wait to pass into the hands of GOD
For you I will wait
I truely do not want to enter eternity with you
I pray GOD will understand
And let me wait for you, just beyond death
Yet not entering eternal life
I want to make that journey with you
The first time
The only time
Do you remember
The first time

The Nights Are Lonely


The nights are lonely
When we are not together
Long they are as well
Neverending
Light in the hotel room
Reveals just how alone
I am
To turn them out though
Would certainly make it that much worse
In the dark I lie
Feeling the walls of the room
Close in on me
On my life
In this ever shrinking room
I find no place to hide
No place available
For that safe feeling
Slowly
The room becomes smaller
Smaller
Smaller
Alas to a point where
There is no more room
Only a box
With me standing inside
No light above
None below
The walls begin to touch me
Compressing me
Making me smaller
With each passing minute
Second
Oh that it would be over
Oh that this pain would end
Crush me
Within the walls
Please
End it now
I cannot take anymore
Then suddenly
My eyes
Finally close
And I
Fall
Asleep

Whenever we're apart
My Mind begins to wander
I like to dream
Of the times we've been together
I like to re-live the beautiful moments
We've shared when close
I love to cling to the tender words

I love to recall the feeling
Of your lips upon mine
I love to reminisce..
And every time I do
I am filled with yearning
To be with you
And to again
Make new dreams with you

Many days and nights
I look for you
In places not spoken of
Nor shared with any other
I look for you
Deep in my heart
There you are waiting
For a time to come
When you and I
Will be one
I wait with you
By your side
Deep within you
In your heart I reside
There I am warm
I am safe
Nothing can harm me
Just as nothing can harm you
There in my heart
Alas, there will be a time
We will be together
For more than a moment
An hour
A day
A night
A week
There will be forever together
Of this I am sure
Though eternity with you
Will seem but a moment
There will ne'er be enough time
To share with you

The Picture
 
 
I have a picture of you
Looking right back at me
On my computer screen.
I look up at the screen
And there you are.
An image of you,
Your face.
On your face is a little smile.
As if you are very happy to see
Whoever it is
Taking the picture.
Your hair,
Slightly tussled as if to be totally at ease,
Relaxed,
Around him.
Your eyes,
Staring directly into the camera.
Into the eyes of the photographer.
Knowing he cannot turn away.
His eyes,
Through the lense
Are locked to yours.
Your eyes,
So deep,
So warm.
Searing his soul through the lense.
Searing my soul
As I stare longingly into your eyes.
Your eyes in the image of you.
On the picture.
On my desk.
Directly in front of me.
I cannot take my eyes from yours.
I love you.

A Second Chance

What is this?
Another chance at love?
Another chance of my heart once again opening
Like a flower
The petals bloom
Once again!
Why?
To what end?
For what reason?
For who?
Me?
You?
I've no answer
I've no clue
The mind wanders o're endless thoughts
Endless dreams through endless journeys
Another chance
To do what?
To once again make the same mistakes?
To once again lose oneself in another?
Again, to what end?
For what reason?
For who?
For me......
For you?
Questions fleeting from my mind
In all directions flowing
Like the four winds blowing
To where?
To be answered
By taking another chance?
By jumping in with both feet
With reckless abandon
As with love...
There is no other way!
Do not hold on to what was....
For it is gone from you
No longer within reach
The past has slipped through your fingers
Like so many grains of sand
Do not grasp at what is
For you will never hold it!
You will not take it to your chest
Your heart
No, not likely will you claim the present
To be yours.
Alas, that leaves the future.
Unknown to you
Somewhere, just out of your reach
Your grasp
Yet right there before you.
Take another chance?
Jump with me
Leap into my arms
Fall into my heart
Come, alight in my world!
Come and take another chance
With me!
A second chance
At love, at life...at becoming you and I!

Haunted

You haunt me
I close my eyes for but a moment
And there you are
A vision of you fills my mind
Perhaps a vision of a photograph
Stored somewhere in a box
Perhaps being used as a bookmark
In some long lost volume
I started to read
Long ago
You haunt me
In my mind I see your face
I see the subtle contours
That change to form
Your nose
Your cheeks
Your chin
Your ears
Your lips
Your smile
Your eyes
You
Stopped in my thoughts
As I ponder your perfect portrait
In my mind
You haunt me
Each moment my mind is free
Of the days necessary thoughts
Work, the house, the dogs, whatever
I spend thinking of you
And how I want to spend
My life
With you
There is never any free space
In my mind
It is filled by you
Thoughts of you
Dreams of you
Haunting me
Haunting my mind
I love you
You haunt me
And I love you
