Here we lie underneath the pale moon
mere shadows in the fading light
the waves softly touching our skin
cold fingers soothing our bodies on fire
shivers running down our spine
Our eyes meet and so do our lips
hands hesitating, unraveling mysteries
uncovering territories, exploring secrets
bathed in reverent waters as we lie
entwined, under a canopy of stars

As Always

Lovers have darkened her doorstep,
flowers they showered her with
and between the sheets they whispered
that she was the only one they need

As always tears had come and stained her cheeks,
now they’ve dried though some still cling
upon her lashes like misty dewdrops
waiting, waiting to fall

And from the darkness garbled love songs play
echoing her sadness, enhancing her loss
for as the music plays she’s still alone
waiting for her lovers though no one came at all

you are wanted in these arms
entwined in blissful embrace
the thuds of beating hearts rejoicing
joined in flesh and spirit
night clothes these eyes
though asleep, we’re still connected
moving in between dreams
like lovers strolling hand in hand
oblivious to the world yet aware
of the infinite stars captured and reflected
on eyes where love shines

Flying High

hand in hand we took flight
in wings formed on exquisite words
that flowed from lips that turn to kiss
awaiting hearts entwined
dreaming upon clouds of silk
as our body lies in blissful sleep

we soared way up high
riding the waves of laughter
that echo well into the night
as we imagined together
dreams of a future so bright
as we traversed the infinite skies

and we danced to the music
our beating hearts created
with sweet words forming in our lips
and with every sway and twirl
our shadows below meld
into a single soul

until dawn arrives
and we fall back home
into sleeping bodies that wait
waking up with smiles on our lips
as the sun slowly kisses
our bodies bound to earth

Hope breeds in every breath expelled,
from mouths that speak their hearts’ desire,
slowly building dreams as lovers lie
on soft ground staring at the starry skies.

Hands seeking hands in the depths of the moon,
lending strength to wayward hearts that commune,
as their battle scarred and worn out souls
find true healing listening to each other’s tune.

And as the night deepens so does their song,
of hearts and minds that both found their home,
in tight embraces and yearning kisses,
until both are spent and lying breathless.

Patchwork Heart


Of all the treasures I could have seen,
I saw this patchwork heart among my things.
Although dusty and dirty it may be
the patches sewn are still tight at the seams.
I could not believe after all these years,
my work of art is still here with me.
Patches that come in brightly colored hues,
exact opposite of those times I was feeling blue,
are now sewn together to form the shape of a heart,
reminding me of my lovers that are long gone.
Leaving me their memories trapped inside,
as well as holes that mar my heart.
There was nothing for me to do as they depart,
except to patch my heart to stop the bleeding true
with patches of cloth cut from my lovers’ own,
covering these holes until my heart was whole once
And as I turn my patchwork heart around
I noticed a space in the middle of it all,
now I’m wondering whether I will be sewing a piece of you soon,
but one I hope I really don’t have to do anymore.
