I awaken
from my fire place fantasies
as if I were a boy again
rediscovering
those passions shared
on Christmas morn...

that he was never
alone in the forest
not in spring...

I pace the room
waiting for the news
but the world has grown silent
and eternity is now measured
by our every heart beat
until the doctor arrives
congratulations he says
it's a girl...

one more yesterday
that was all my heart
had left to offer her
one more yesterday
to treasure
when she felt alone
or when the tears
threaten to call

(forgive the typo)

they would remain
lupin in nature
with a alpha
a beta
and those that only follow
so much like
the society of man
so often
nothing more
than wolves
in disguise

if tomorrow never comes
would you remember
I love you
or will I remember
you're gentle touch
that reached beyond
the hollows of my heart...

chasing shadows and yesterdays
that's all I seem to do
not that I want to recapture my youth
or those dreams long past
I just want to know
whatever happened to you...

the talking sidewalks of the city
did more than record it's history
it spoke with tears of the war years...

#poetry : My Grave

don't weigh down
my grave
with memories
of tears and regrets
no
remember those songs
of my yesterdays
and dance...

I awaken
from my fire place fantasies
as if I were a boy again
rediscovering those passions shared
on Christmas morn
before the children came along...

Aqua blue
deep cherry wine
sweetheart pink and midnight ink
colors and hues dancing
with my heart...

to the hourglass whispers

she tastes his sweat
on her lips still
as she remembers
his touch
the feel of him
and she softly moans
as the memory
swims
within her
the fire burns
the passion cries
she still tastes his sweat
but now she longed
for more

#poetry : Chasing Butterflies

she was chasing butterflies
I was chasing rainbows
she thought to catch one
as if it were a trophy
me
I wanted to ride the clouds
find the place all our dreams
reside

#poetry : The Story Of You

I found the story of you
written in the hollows of my heart
not just the echoes of our first kiss
or those shadows of the night
that were voyeurs to our passion...

they were
the most tempestuous of letters
expressing passions long hidden away
and desires that
once spoken could never be denied...

we could feel
the edges of autumn
appeared
as the wind kissed
the summer evenings
goodbye
reminding us how quickly
a summer love
can end

come closer I whispered
so softly it sounded
almost like a prayer
but still she looks
into my eyes
finds her shelter there...

of course
she tasted of rosemary
& with every new kiss
I would learn
to savor
not only the taste
of her essence
but the promise
hiding
behind her eyes

it was a good time to dream
to hide in my fantasies of you
of the world I've found
behind your eyes...

she's there
waiting in my room
like a Disney Princess
waiting to sing a song
full of hope
of love
& here I was
like Quasimodo
so afraid to be hurt
I refuse to open
the door
I realized it then
love is only
for the brave
or the strong

she knows the chains
that shackle me
not just to the past
& the scars never spoken of
but to that boy
so broken
that man hood remains
a shore
a 1000 seas away

it's funny
how the empty cradle
is so full of memories
not just the babies
but my own
of how frighten
I was
that I may break her
only now
I am the broken one
now that she is gone
so far from home

they would bicker with me
try to wear me down
as if they thought I was
just another minion in their war
of right versus left....
