The Moment



For a second
maybe two

our eyes meet 

Yours
held mine
prisoner

Me
gladly
surrendering

Joyfully
longingly
falling

Into those clear
cool
pools

The moment 
now gone

You turn away

Would you smile
a welcome?

Do you know
this heart?

reaching

We will never know

The Moon’s Blush


The Sun so loved the Moon.  Her luminous smile set his heart aflame.  His burning desire shone for all to see. But he yearned for the darkness.  The Moon lit the night, paving the way for his dreams.  The glow of her celestial presence would wash over him, cooling the flames.  There were times when she would blush a deep red.  As if she knew his thoughts.  This is when he loved her the most.  The Stars shared the night with the Moon, as the Sun never could.  The Sun looked on; his desperate heart aching.  He knew he would never be with the radiant beauty that he loved from afar. The Stars twinkled a “tisk, tisk”; for they had the wisdom of the heavens.  The Sun loved in vain.  He would wait for the night so that his dreams would carry him to his beloved.

Sunrise


Sunrise 
shatters 
the dream

Winged moments
with you

Momentary 
passions

Unfulfilled 
desires

Dreams

Reality severs
liaisons

Yearnings
unquenched

Never, ever, yours… — Afterwards


I love Michael’s blog, Afterwards.  He’s funny, uncensored, and irreverent.  But once in a while he lets his softer side show.  This is an example of one of those times.  Please enjoy this lovely poem by Michael.  ❤

Some words.

via Never, ever, yours… — Afterwards

In My Dreams


I was sure I had found you 
once,twice 
more...

I've felt your arms around me 
felt your strength
the heat 
of your
heart

Just a dream

I've seen your eyes  

They're the color 
of the sea 
on a winter morning

Your passion 
has held me 
enthralled me  

I give myself 
to you
just to awaken 
to an empty 
room  

A dream 

I thought I saw 
your smile 
in passing 

I felt the electricity  

The same as my dreams  

You're out there
I know it  
I feel it  

I feel

you

Twisted Spell – #OctPoWriMo


She studied lore and craft

Her heart’s desire to obtain.

 

She used bat’s wings and chants

And even a little wolfbane.

 

She locked him in a cage

And cast spells on him each night.

Consumed #writephoto


It’s been a while since I’ve participated in Sue’s Thursday prompts.  However, this photo was very inspiring!  If you would like to be part of the fun with Sue’s prompts, you can read all about it HERE.  Below is my offering for Sue’s amazing photo.  

A wildfire

Out of control

I am lost in

thoughts of you.

The loneliness burns

As does my desire.

Consuming you

being Consumed.

Raging against

the empty

Seeking your

Fire

Devour me with it

I beg.

I long to touch

The flame.
