Endurance

Stumbling feet
Dragging steps
Each a burning hell
Brothers in arms
Brothers in blood
Unfailing the other
Endurance unto the end

Pheromone

Drawn like a moth
To circle your flame
Pulled as a moon
To follow your orbit
Suffocating pheromone
A sunflower
Worshiping your sun

With each new day
Fresh dawning glory
Bursting with opportunities anew
A chance to rebuild
Repair
Sandcastles swept aside
In the tide

Don't look down
Never look back
The goal you seek
Just within reach
Slow to rise
Fast to fall
Walk the tightrope
Take the chance

 Promises I heard
Wishes I made
I gazed upon the stars
Blinded by a fistful of glitter
Thrown by careless Gods
Supernovas exploding

 A battle is fought
In the heavens
This night
We tremble far below
With fearful eyes
We gaze up in wonder
Awaiting a thunderous
Hammer blow

Hush
A kobalos nears
Fingers wiping tears
Don't let him hear the suffering souls
Or lifetimes together you'll have
Just say nothing

Tempted 2 touch
My senses singed
Your flame burned truly 2 bright
Raw fire of passion
U tore through my soul
& devoured me whole

Tread lightly
Though U may know the path
Proceed gently
Though this world may be known
This is my dreamscape
Don't shatter it

Angelic eyes
Molten with hidden fire
Demure in their aspect
From behind a misty veil
A sensual glimpse through the lens
Captured

Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:34:13 pm
Such sweet temptation
In frosty offering
Balance upon a cone
Icy moons
Of vanilla perfection
Begging me to taste
Devour
Consume

Once
I used to feel
Afore music stole my soul
Such raw material
Held me on the edge
Magical mystic mime
Such a sweet Orpheus ache

Between them
I sit
Their only child
Not knowing what to say
Replaying our life
The good & the bad
The laughs along the way

 Rosy hues
To color her world
Ever hopeful
She dances through life
Her heart
As a window
Open to all
Such an incurable romantic

Do the stars
In their silver glory
Ever wonder why the sun
At dawn
Does chase them fm the sky
& in jealousy kills their sparkle

Slow creak of leather
As it flexes in your grip
The hot brush of air
Your lips upon my neck
These are things that make me smile

A throne desired
A battle lost
So many drowned in blood
A price now paid
Fate deals a heavy hand
A paper crown now atop my head

Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:50:53 pm
 Our passion
Hotter than the mighty sun
Scorched our souls
Burned our hearts
A flame too strong to last
Now reduced to ashes

Revenge is a dish
Best served cold
Within deep Tartarus
Titans await
Their judgement final
Make a wish
On a chance to truly ascend
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:52:14 pm
As May Day streamers
Set a flutter
In a teasing breeze
So did your words
That summer day
Release my soul
Dancing in the wind

Title: Re: Winter's Tales

 The breath of air upon my cheek
To herald the oncoming storm
Screaming Valkyries
Unleashed
Pour down impending calamity

 A heart riven in two
Torn twixt what is &
What may sometime be
Capricious nature
Confounded mind
Upon which path do I set my feet?
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:54:58 pm
Dawn draws near
A cock does crow
Soft rays pierce the veil
To chase from view
This shaded night

Her time has come
To shed these shackles
Shake loose her silken wings
And take flight
Drawn to the heavens above
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:58:11 pm
Will I ever have the courage
The fortitude of soul
To dance along the edge of a cliff?

When the winds of change blow
To catch me unawares
Let not my steps be unsure
And my path be uncertain
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 02:58:57 pm
 Onward they come
Flowing like liquid
Their battle cries heard on the wind
To herald a tidal wave of blood

Silent in vigil
A study in anticipation
Alert as one
To the entrance
Foretold by gods
Of he that is for now

hemmed in by night
sweet stygian gloom
U bind me now in place
a will betrayed
no longer my own
an end now
I must face
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 03:59:40 pm
Let me be lost
So deep in life
Drowning in whirlpools
Of fiery passion
Your touch all I need
To give me life
And live again
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 17, 2015, 04:00:35 pm
Centuries are but a drop in the bucket
To one such as I
Who's walked with kings
Seen empires fall
Patient I wait
Watching
you all

Had the eve of Agincourt in my mind tonight and the fears which may have ghosted amongst the waiting men, bedraggled and awaiting a force much larger than their own.

Whispers ride the air tonight
Blown upon the restless winds
To seek the ears of those too weak
Too easily tempted
To guard themselves
From such seductive promise


They circle and wait
Patience oftimes a virtue
But here a vice
Twisted
Misshapen
Devoid of any trace of honour


Follow us now
They seem to say
Oriflamme burning bright
Poisonous honeyed words
Take up your sword and fight


A bounty awaits for he who does
Your name to be written in the stars
Praise shall be unending
As would my shame


For there he stands
A golden King
Henry
Fifth of that name


For him I ride
For him I fight
Let he who flees this bloody battlefield
Hang his head in shame
But not I!

Title: Re: Winter's Tales

Each breathless second
Measured in pulsation
Stretched taut
Upon a rack of sensation
Anticipation burns
Once more
Again
Please
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 19, 2015, 03:25:22 am
Your strength my core
As nerves unravel
Beneath your touch
Egyptian cotton a witness
To melting submission
Willing surrender

Unwinding thread
Upon a spool
The Fates to measure our span
No ticking clock
Can slow the sun
Or moon
In her path
Destiny is set
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 19, 2015, 01:39:54 pm
 The scent of you still lingers
Enfolding me in soft memories
Of passionate nights 'neath a moon
Lethargic days amongst the meadows
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 19, 2015, 05:41:14 pm
As ribbons streaming from a Maypole
Dance merrily with a nimble breeze
So did my thoughts
At your sweet words
Buzz louder than the bees

To hear your voice
Stalking my mind
That which was lost
Thought gone forever
Yet echoes still tumble
Endlessly
Such sweet torture

========

Slender rivers run
Silvered threads
Promise of life
Such fresh rain
To drench the land
And fill my cup


========

Cleansing shower
Fresh rain
Chill but pure
Sweet nectar on my lips
Heavens blessing upon my head


========

Tender heart
Bruised - beating
Pumping her soulful message
Never ending yearning
Searching for the one
Never a coward but hopeful

======

Tender heart
Bruised - beating
Pumping her soulful message
Never ending yearning
Searching for the one
Never a coward but hopeful

======

A flaring match
Flickering flame
Uncertain steps
One by one
Towards that light
Silvered beam
Drawing me on
Hope in darkness

======

Fledgling wings
Such tender sprigs
Spread out neath the sun
Bravely eager
Fear unknown
Undeniable
Mother Nature
Enfolds her own

======

Desirous of yr touch
Inflamed by yr words
Burning love took hold
Swept me round
A boiling maelstrom
Noodle limp
I survived
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 20, 2015, 06:15:57 am
graceful tumble
soul dying
spiralling thru clouds
words u spoke
arrows strike deep
promises u made
my world turned
upside down

=======

A circle of silence
In a tomb of ice
We stood and faced our fate
Calm descended
'Twas only us
But the storm raged without

=======

Creeping
Blinking
From Winter's icy grip
Bashful Spring steps forth
Vigour refreshed
Daring shoots stretching
Towards the sun

=======

As a fleece warm about my shoulders
Your words enfold
They settle
They comfort from afar
Who needs chicken soup
For there you are

=======

gates of iron
sentinel guards
treasure unknown within
what do they hide?
what do they protect?
to stand the test of time

=======

A skylight lifting
Sweet warmth enfolding
Renewed vigour
Restored to life
Ghostly footprints
Along the sand

=======

Fleeting glimpse
Yet so profound
My heart you captured
Without a word
Loving well
Neverending
Ever growing
With me through the years

=======

A cup
angled jauntily
anointing lips
and tongue
with precious liquor
sweet and dark
words like bubbles
rising

=======

Aged soul
Weary of searching
A refreshed heart
Tear washed of sin
Land of your fathers
An eternal home
Anchor to the man

======

When did I become
The person I see in the mirror?
Was it when you took my hand?
Or when you let it fall?

======

Such words are music
zephyr's lilt
stirring the refrain of peace
into earth's sweet smell
with salty tang
from distant sea

The fountain of hope
Which lives within
Returns to life
Renewed
Refreshed
Layers of pain
Flayed
Stripped
Falling to dust

=======

The fountain of hope
Which lives within
Returns to life
Renewed
Refreshed
Layers of pain
Flayed
Stripped
Falling to dust

========

Homecoming tears
rivers born in loss
flow
down my cheeks
emptying me
to fill another place
I didn't know
still lived within

======

dancing dawn upon my lids
drawing me from my nest
in shades of gold
to burnish my world

======

Home
once a far shore
a forgotten land
now burns, a fiery beacon
calling me to set my foot
on memory's
sweet-smelling earth

weary traveller
foot sore & spent
wonders you've seen
peoples you've met
with spirit lifted
and hopes restored
welcome home

=======

Storm tossed leaf
Blown 2 and fro
Fragile & light
You go where you go
Yet my will is mine
My choices to make
None shall say
The road I take

======

writhing as if a living flame
in cleansing fire we burn
a starlit torch
blazing through the dark
to shine our pathway home

======

feel the rhythm
feel the beat
there's the floor
get on your feet
see that disco ball a spinnin'
c'mon now people
get groovin'

======

Stars fall
I seize them
breathe them in
I am pierced by starfire
burning white hot
setting Heaven to flame
with fiery words

======

My old house
creaks & groans
like my old bones
but tonite I hear
not a creak
but a footfall
Death's at my door
He took his time

=====

Within shadows I dwell
Enshrouded in shade
Bare fragments of light
They dare to invade
Mere echoes of life
To whisper my name
Unheeded soul

=====

a guardian angel
golden and bright
you fought at my side
a shining white knight
my heart I entrust
shelter her well

=====

upon the breeze
he called 2 me
sibilant words of love
my mind took heed
heart took flight
within the vortex we danced

=====


Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 20, 2015, 01:31:56 pm
Whisper soft
I take yr hand
Squeeze gently
Let it fall
And so I walk
Continue on
Mustn't turn
I feel yr gaze
In clandestine love

=====

 Her words tear the heart from my chest
In unthinking elation
She crushed all my hopes
Your painful proposal
To her
Drew my blood

=====

Lost amidst a fragrant wilderness
Locked in Winters tenderness
Pillowed by soft snowfalls
Her dead tremorless heart
Shocked awake

=====

He took my hand
Raising me up
His gaze ablaze with love

We danced
We laughed
He took my heart

Only a vision
A lucid daydream

=====

One breathless second
That moment in time
Between one beat and the next
When all is fresh
And new potential
Title: Re: Winter's Tales

One is more captivating than the next
Your talent know no bounds
Delving into your words, your text
Images in my head creates the sounds

Cold and calculating
Bold and mesmerizing
Always enchanting

This refers to George, Duke of Clarence, put to death for treason by his brother, King Edward IV


Upon his knees
Head hung in shame
Fortune spins her wheel
Shall Clarence rise/fall?
An oath of honour
Strictly broken
Fall it is

But that inevitable ache
Eating me from the inside out

Unbowed
Unbeaten
Invictus spirit

 A shining star on stage tonight
Illuminated in brilliance
A Pied Piper drawing eyes
Trailing kisses amidst the broken hearts

###########

Such things only a mind wrapped in shade can conjure
Fantasies draped in somber mourning
As ravens do gather to escort me home

###########

 Flying too high
On wings of gold
To seek the sun
I was not told

Get too close
See too much
Sunburnt you'll be
Dust to dust

##########

 Reserved just for you
A space within my heart
Held safe
Protected
A place so secret
Hidden so deep
Only we know it's there
For us

##########

Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on July 25, 2015, 03:00:34 pm
You came to me
You heard my call
My whispered plea on the wind
Crossing through time
You returned to me
From beyond the grave

######

You came to me
You heard my call
My whispered plea on the wind
Crossing through time
You returned to me
From beyond the grave

######

Seduce my mind
Lay before me a banquet
Tempt my appetite with sweet kisses
Leaving a trail leading straight to your heart
❤️

######

 Impenetrable stone, layer upon layer
Rising from the plain to loom, glowering outward
Casting into shadow the land and all beyond

Fading footsteps upon vintage cobbles
Memories of a past scattered beneath our feet
Tread gently for you step upon our history

You were always mine
You just didn't know
Threads of fate

Meld and mould

In dizzying succession

reaching out to capture them gently
no net required
tenderly retrieving them for you
memories never fading so bright they are
a million stars in the heavens
do not shine as brightly
reflections of perfect harmony
retrieve them gently

Musing on Bosworth

 

Within the depths of my mind
Where not even I dare visit too often
There is a place
Secretive
Hidden
My deepest desires awaiting

A scream splits the air
Is it mine or his?
Is this real or a fevered
dream?
Dare I open my eyes?
Face the unknown with courageous eyes?

There upon the field
Beneath a streaming banner
Warriors bold gather to stand
Shoulder to shoulder
Eyes straining in the dawn

Dust floats against the rising sun
Stirred by a thousand feet
Onward they march
Drumming their threatening intent
We wait and wonder

A Dragon & Boar shall meet this day
Flaming breath to match razor tusks
Which shall triumph?
And which in blazing despair
Shall rue the day?

 I hear them still
Those moans that echo
That once did spill from my lips
You held me then
Teased my flesh
Burned your name within

#######

Sweet mysteries of the universe
Unveil your secrets to my eyes
Keep me not an Alchemist in chains
But free me to explore deeper

Flocking high overhead
Arrows to blackout & cloak
These silent assassins
Who fall as rain
To soak the field
In traitorous blood

A selection of musings today

As the compass moves
& Earth spins
Winds shift
Loyalties realign
Fortunes wheel spins once again
A crown to fall
Or a fool arise

Zzzzzzzzz

Slicing deep
Your verbal scalpel
Placed with precision
Such surgical skill
Do you even care?
This fresh wound shall B the last

Zzzzzzzzz

Acrid smoke curls slow spirals in the air
Authentic aromas of home fires burning
To draw the weary warriors home

Zzzzzzzzz

Supple leather strokes a lazy path
Meandering along humid valleys
Rising to peaked crests
Teasing flick
And then the sky explodes

Zzzzzzzzz

Beneath boiling restless skies
Nature dances in chaotic embrace with man
Our choice-less love
Our Eden
Becomes a Throne of Thorns

Zzzzzzzzz

 With just one word "begin" our world turned to flame
& hell crashed down upon us all
While high on Olympus the mighty Zeus smiled

Zzzzzzzzz

I hear them still
Those moans that echo
That once did spill from my lips
You held me then
Teased my flesh
Burned your name within

Zzzzzzzzz

Sweet mysteries of the universe
Unveil your secrets to my eyes
Keep me not an Alchemist in chains
But free me to explore deeper

Zzzzzzzzz

Draped in somber remnants she moves amongst the fair
Once a beautiful Swan
She now glides in shades of mourning

Zzzzzzzzz

Be lethal
Be swift
Be the blade which cleaves the path
This day shall be ours
This crown we shall take
And valiant hearts to win

Zzzzzzz

Her wings unfurled to taste the currents
Stretching towards the heavens
But not to be - broken wings now shackled to Earth

Zzzzzzz

Our gazes met
Unspoken words flowed
Your hand stretched forth
My breath held in anticipation
With the slightest touch
Start there

Hoarse cries
Unto the breach, men!
To waken the very dead
These sleepless nights
Among withered leaves
Leading to candlelit mischief

Zzzzzzzz

Bending rules has never been so much fun
As when I curved around you
Defying gravity to arch and twist
Held safe in your arms

Bardic compositions - a duet if you will - with Neil G


@Banquozghost:
Shrivelled thing
you
twisted ice
snow-dusted
beset by creeping death
discarded from her dread embrace
now pleasuring is done

@MercurialNight: Icy floes surround my heart
Ever changing
Ever moving
As seasons change
Those that may
Escape my frozen grasp
To breathe again

@Banquozghost:
That which seems still
moves slowly
almost imperceptibly
tiny breaches in cold's grip
are eased wider
by succouring touch

@MercurialNight: Slipping ever faster from my grasp
My freedom disappears from view
I sink silently beneath
Trapped within her icy tomb

@Banquozghost:
What fire brave enough
to try her frozen hell
melt captive bonds
liberate spirits
comatose from cold?
Yet flame is bold!

@MercurialNight: A valiant heart
Brave and true
Burning with internal fire
Hot blooded creatures
To rise again
As phoenixes soaring high

@Banquozghost:
Hot blood soars
beyond the pale
of an icy rim
hungry for nought
but grim possession.
In flame is wrought a road of passion.

@MercurialNight: Seared within my soul
Burned forever in warning
Trespass not on this frozen waste
A serene beauty
Ever hiding a deadly intent

@Banquozghost:
Who says "Dare not!"
for yet I dare
my fiery will
can melt the grip
of frozen air
this my challenge
"Try me, Ice! I'm fire!"

@MercurialNight: Fire you may be!
Yet be not inflamed of pride
For with one drag of an icy finger
You shall forever be entombed
Frozen in time

@Banquozghost:
Fire drives
not pride,
and better tried
than not.
This my tomb?
By the gods
it'll be a hot one
and we'll burn together in't


@MercurialNight: Upon that pyre we shall combust
Into the heavens
Dust to dust
As phoenixes we shall rise
And gaze upon this world's demise

I loved this...wonderful duet!

I especially liked the closing lines,

"For with one drag of an icy finger
You shall forever be entombed
Frozen in time"

 Within a crucible of pain
Shall your soul be born anew
A spirit once bowed
Unfolds
2 spread wings wide
& rise again with hope

Zzzzzzzz

One more step
Hardest of all to take
Yet sometimes shortest 2
When all light fades
& sound dims
Take it slow
The end's in view

Zzzzzz

We started as strangers
You & I
When you offered your coat
To keep me warm
Your passion a blanket in the night
Wrapped so close

zzzzzzzz

 Know me by no other name
For I am the legend which stalks the night
The nightmare which thrives within your mind

zzzzzz
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: JFoshia on August 06, 2015, 04:57:54 pm
This one is very beautiful...a great story told in these words.

I especially like this part,

"One more step
Hardest of all to take
Yet sometimes shortest 2
When all light fades
& sound dims
Take it slow
The end's in view"

Kind of gives you hope that the pain or nightmare is almost over.   :)

I saw him once
In days gone by
When I was young
And corn was high
Now seasons change
We had to part
He leaves no trace
Except in my heart

Yet now and then
I think of him
I hear his voice
Upon the wind
His strength and touch
Are with me still
In dead of night
When all is still

Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: WintersTale on August 07, 2015, 04:01:52 pm
A bardic duet with Neil

@Banquozghost:
Call suffering
by another name
the scars I bear
will be the same
my tears will be
a river or the rain
my broken heart
will still know pain

@MercurialNight:
Within a crucible of pain
Shall your soul be born anew
A spirit once bowed
Unfolds
To spread wings wide
& rise again with hope

@Banquozghost:
O lift me, lift me up
sweet cloud of hope on high
I spurn the drag
of wretched earth
and soar to meet
the roof of sky

@MercurialNight:
O wretched land which birthed you then
Shall not its grip upon you loosen
None of man has she ever lost
None of man shall she

@Banquozghost:
Ah, sweet earth
that calls us all to rest.
Not yet, not yet!
Another stanza first
and this one shall be best!

@MercurialNight:
Such eloquence deserves a chance
To breathe again
To live
To dance
Just a moment more
Among the heavens
Afore I'm lost again
Title: Re: Winter's Tales
Post by: JFoshia on August 07, 2015, 04:45:23 pm
The opening of this addition,

"Call suffering
by another name
the scars I bear
will be the same
my tears will be
a river or the rain
my broken heart
will still know pain"

Is beautiful! I also love the closing as well.

I am glad inspiration hit you again, I really enjoyed this one too!  :)

Moonlight whimsy - a duet with Neil

And there I rest
Gazing upon the moon
So far away
Out of reach
Yet with just one thought
So shall I perch upon her beam

Lifted up to Selene's domain
past compass of the mortal sea
to freedom of the human mind
not so entwined with vain humanity

My earthbound form
Enchained to this wandering sphere
Shall not my soul's flight prevent
As she soars free to roam the heavens

Drift, sailor,
on the tides of Jove
as he plays the destiny of planets
for a game of draughts.
Where next?
Fate my helmsman

The Fates do mock our poor endeavours
In futile purpose do I drift on cosmic tides
A mere toy beneath their cruel intent

So vain gods
doff the masks
simulacra of concern
to reveal contemptuous
curling lips
wild eyes
the reign of cruel children

Absolve my frail humanity
I am their humble servant
My vanity blinded me
Deafened my ears
My foolish wish
No more than a dream
Title: Re: Winter's Tales

Poetic musings from the week:

My ears beg sound
But Taking a deep breath
You try to spare me the pain
And By a slip of tongue
You instigate injustice for all

Xxxxxx

Shedding my fears
Sensing each fall away
Dissolving
Disappearing
Hope & belief
My newly fitted apparel
To keep the demons at bay

Xxxxxxx

Unleash my passion
Let it roam wild
Without boundaries
Restraints are condemned
Outlawed
Here I am
Are you brave enough to take?

Xxxx

Each day I arrive
To stand and stare through locked rusty gates
One day you shall let me in

xxxxx

This Memory's Curse 2 always relive
The day angels cried out
Your Painful Presence almost draws blood
But My Dry eyes barely blink

Xxxxxx

Stumbling weary across a field
Death still stalking my steps
A golden crown now in my grasp
Cold comfort to those now dead

xxxxxx

Flesh to flesh
Soul to soul
Moving into you
We merge
We burn
We are consumed
The flame of passion
Too hot
Too strong
❤️

Xxxxxxxx

In what rash alternative universe
In what moment of delirium
Could Man ever have thought to contain all evils within a box?

xxxxx

Quaffing bottled courage
Upon these shrouded steps
Amongst my many secret sins
Including banned affection
Beneath this vulgar rule

Xxxxxx

At one with the universe
In perfect balance
Harmonising with nature herself
Drifting with the ebb and flow
Of dragon tears

Xxxx

Musings today:

There stands a pool
Within a glade
Where still waters
Lie clear and chill
Take just one
Sip of the divine
And eternity is yours

xxx


 Slow creeping tendrils of icy inquisition
Drag their frosty way along my rippling spine
Which flinches in chilly fruitless evasion


Xxxxx

With a wicked smile
That's all it took
To draw me under your spell
Mentor me in the ways of
Everything I ever thought impossible

xxxxx

Slide of leather
Rasp of zip
With a ride this sweet
Let's take a trip
Chart my desire
On my lost highway

Wild imaginings
Dark, dangerous
Wilful desires unloosed
My mind to be the cauldron
My flesh to be the ingot
Sculpting my world

xxxx

 Drumming beat along the road
Hot chrome beneath my thighs
Spinning wheels shall never cease
No matter which route I decide

xxx

We've come so far
Along this road
Our destination still unknown
Yet together we'll chart a course
Our spinning wheels racing on

Xxx

Time shall never be ours to own
No man can slow its march
We can but ensure we spend it wisely
In love, honour and honesty

Xxxx

Upon this field beneath the heavens
I lay and gaze upon the stars
My bed this night to be the earth from which I sprung

xxxxx


And such a sweet and gentle head
To bear the heavy weight of such
He really was too good for this world
Overburdened much

Xxxx

A Warrior Lies Sleeping

 Lives have come and gone
In but a blink of an eye
Yet here you rest
Beneath these hills
While the land above does cry

Unaware of centuries passing
Awaiting once more the call
Defender of the faith
A saviour to all

A land slowly dying
Crying out your name
A people soon to perish
Remembering once your flame

Rise up, our saviour!
For now is the time
O warrior of the realm
Your might is once more needed
Your strength to guide our helm



Title: Re: Winter's Tales

Musings

Beneath a stout birch tree
The knight does live on
His spirit to soar
& fame to spread
Yet here he rests
Upon an earthen bed

Xxxxxxxx

You'll know it when you feel it
An inner voice that whispers "here"
The peace you find
That sense of 'right'
Where you belong

Xxxxxxxx

My cornered heart shall soon stop
In reckless abandon I dallied
Mother Natures fury proved fatal
O Lord deliver me a friend indeed

Xxxxxxxx

Am I to spend my days alone
Spooling out my mortal thread
Draining away until I am nothing but a drifting mote?

Xxxxxxxx

Hold me tight
Wrap me up
Whisper my name again
Tell me you're sorry
& U were wrong
Our love a cracked perfection
Unbroken still

xxxxx

A lost soul
Drifting
Searching for my other half
A Virgo by birth
A Leo by nature
His severed tie
Matching my tattered corduroy

Xxxxxx

 Has it been so long
Since Summer's heat baked the earth
I bid farewell with heavy heart
Watched him ride from sight

Now all is drowned
In Winter storms
When the land lays still
Neath heavy snows
And none does move
Or leave a trace

With watchful eyes
Undimmed by time
I set a lantern in the window
A guiding beacon home

Xxxxxx

Weave me a spell
Of such wonder
Our gods shall pause
Hold their breath
Your silver tongue
Divining fates
Gods can only dream of

Xxxxx

Finding refuge upon midnight sands
Lost in my denial phase
I had to lie & words
Spun from fantasy
Spilled from my lips
Mea culpa!

Xxxxx

Follow my finger
Carefully tracing
Each delicious valley
Every Hairpin curve
A magical mystery tour
Of sensual discovery

Xxxxx

'Twas only when you let me in
Drew me close within your care
Divining my true gift to you
Serving your passion
As you serve mine

Xxxxx

 Beneath a disconsolate moon
Gliding in effortless motion
To swim against the tide
Her changing light
Illuminating a hunting ground

Xxxx

 @Banquozghost

Daughters of Hecate
Such wild Lamentations
Screamed to the night
Draw down thy hellspawn
Get thee hence from my sight

@Banquozghost:
Wild creatures from
the wastes of hell
a raven cries
midnight rings her bell
they come
cast down your eyes
look not on them

@Banquozghost

Crows take flight
In murderous purpose
Blackening the sky
Shutting out the sun
Upon the wing
To seek their prey

@MercurialNight
Sharp wings carve gloomy air
laden with sighs
harsh crow-call
purposeful now
the smell of blood
is the rider on an ill wind

Xxxxxxx

Did you know?
Ever realise?
We never speak
We never touch
Yet you bring me such unknown comfort
With just a smile
Just a look

Xxxxxx

Murmured growl beside my ear
Lips brushing my flesh
A trail of fire traced
Unquenched desire
Left me shivering
Crying 'more'

Xxxxx

Still summer night
Humid air hangs heavy
Scents do mingle
Sweet eddies a-swirl
Of floating lilies
Rose & myrrh
An aromatic kiss

xxxxx

@MercurialNight
A warrior blazing
amazing us
with speed and appetite

Yet no meteor
that burns so strong
sustains this fiery light for long

A trumpet blast
& clarion call
To split the very air
Upon the stage
To make an entrance
With mighty sword
& courage to spare

This lion's cub shall ne'er roar again
His flaming star swallowed by the sun
In overweening undimmed pride
He crashed 2 earth

@MercurialNight
Yet in the corridors of stars
lit by the lamp of distant suns
a phantom on the plain of Mars
full-armoured yet he strides
 martialling a ghostly band
of warriors, their pennant high
fills Heaven
shakes the firmament
Hotspur is the name they cry
@MercurialNight

As wraiths in the night

Within mirrored rooms
Hidden deep inside my mind
Memories, desires, wishes
Flood my mischievous manor
I smile offering invitation

Christmas comes but once a year.
It brings lots of fun & merry cheer.

I wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
Don't eat too much chocolate, don't drink too much beer.

You might be teetotal & not drink alcohol at all.
Some people believe 3 wise men visited Jesus with gifts & on their knees did fall.

The gifts they brought were Frankincense, Myrrh & Gold.
We still get presents at Christmas now as in years of old.

Darkness descends to swallow all
A smothering velvet cloak
Neath which no hope can shine

Within this marble tomb
My soul
Unblemished

Shake loose my forced disguise

Beautiful shields
To hide our thoughts

@MercurialNight
Stepping back
from the insistent hubbub
I've donned dark feathers
I contemplate the night

... a quiet few days

@Banquozghost

Cloaked in somber garb
Melting with the shadows
A time for contemplation
Conjugation of the prose

@MercurialNight
The weight of just a comma
too much
for words, unmeasured
to bear

They disperse
unbound
no compass
for the formless dark

@Banquozghost

Quills dipped in misers ink
To eke out each precious word
Souls poured forth upon the page
Spilling to fill the universe

@MercurialNight
I cut my arm
wrote in blood

The rebel page
sucked my pen dry
leaving just a smear
that seemed indifferent
to the wound


@Banquozghost

From life's blood
In fountains
Flows the heartfelt truth




@MercurialNight
At the bottom
of the heart's disturb'd sea
private tides
wear smooth each jagged edge

A pebble for your thoughts

Blame it on fate
Or was it destiny

Beside a river lay me down
Blackened petals about me float
Ruined to the core

Where once we danced
And spoke of dreams
Now we sit
And whisper of memories

The final stretch
We've come so far
End game now in play
A whistle blows
A thunderous roar
Finally on our way

#Promptpocalypse #MadVerse

Forces aligned
Our final stand
Mighty pens flourished
We play our parts
Each keeping score
We scream our words
Forevermore
#Promptpocalypse

Poisoned ink
In deadly nightshade
A bitter battleground
Friends & foes
Lost in a rush
All honour cast out
Nowhere 2 B found

Drum the beat
Feet do March
Flags unfurl
Heads held high
Our foes despatched
By swift decree
All swept aside
Hollow victory

Taciturn
Watchful
He stands as a shield
Bastion strong
Beyond none shall pass
Gaze full of scorn

Grim portents led us here
A trail of pain
Friends old and new
Brothers in arms
Lost and found
To meet the awful reckoning
#Promptpocalypse


What was it that moulded U
Who nurtured your mind
When was your spirit crushed
From where did you come
This anatomy of evil
#Promptpocalypse


A blood moon rises
Crows gather in the night
Black eyes to witness
This midnight clash
Of quill to sword
And pen to blade

#Promptpocalypse


Tethered by birth
This place my home
You shall not win
Though I breathe yet still
I am truly bound to stone

#Promptpocalypse


Through roots sunk deep
I feel the dark rage build
My land crying out
A slow cold fury
Straining to be unleashed

#Promptpocalypse


Hard pressed
Nowhere to turn
Blocked on every side
My world about to burn
Lights grow dim
Chill the air
Too soon the end
#Promptpocalypse

Yet hope
A living flame
Glows still within the night
I'm not defeated yet
Shall rise to turn and fight

#Promptpocalypse


Where there is a desert of feeling
No oasis of hope may bloom
All is fair if love is not there
No moral compass to guide

#Promptpocalypse


Heavens may fall
Mountains tumble to dust
Seas rise and mankind be crushed
Yet our spirit shall survive another day

#Promptpocalypse


Sorrow fill my world with tears
Cast me adrift upon seas of doubt
I search
But do not find
Yet more blues and no clues

A duet

Red iron trees
beset with rust
sinking as they rise
a slow return to dust

Art: Rafai Waniak

.@Banquozghost

Subsiding to ash
Dissolving to dust
Blown away on the wind
To land where they must

@MercurialNight
Stir the dust

Lay out the rusted blade
the tainted implements

Make corruption's invocation

See them rise again
from ash

incantations
1 by 1
watch them grow
towards the sun
we built them 1st
designed with hope
yet here we kneel
a slippery slope

@Banquozghost

@MercurialNight
Grow until
a burdened earth
groans
beneath the weight
of awful aspiration.
Sick surfaces slick
with dark intent,
quivering.

Silent giants
Held at bay
They strain to unleash their rage

Mankind watches
Holds its breath
Encased within this cage

@Banquozghost

@MercurialNight
The rasp and rattle
of restraining steel,
eclipsed by thunder's peel.
Heavens shake
with wrath at the ungodly risks
we take

As pebbles dropped in a pond
Ripples expand
Ever widening

#ntitle 681

------

Surrounded by such useless beauty
No consolation 4 my loss
A phone can be such a cold device
Your words a bitter wine on my tongue
#ashverse

-------

I no longer see you
My world now in deep shadow
And yet
Every day
Every night
I use your eyes
To view
Discern
Perceive the truth
#ntitle 680

--------

A flower unfurling
Petals spreading
Open to their fullest
Senses alive to every touch
Absorbing your scent
Your taste
Just...you

#dsubverse

--------

No questions asked
No explanation needed
As the back of my hand
I know you so well
And would follow you blindly

#fieryverse

------

Beware the envious gaze
When upon a pedestal we place
In love's high honour
Those dearly well beloved
Where once another stood

#fieryverse

--------

Just a material girl
Forever seeking that diamond ring
A gamble too far
She played with loaded dice
Lost the wager
And her heart

#ashverse
---------

With eyes averted
Between us a chasm of loss
Words unspoken
Desires denied
What you took so long ago
I now demand it back

#ntitle 678
--------

Two souls
Joined as one
Though the miles
And years between
Do keep us far apart
Saying goodbye
Mere words
We never could say

#WyldeVerse
--------

Heartbroken
Spirit adrift
My anchor cut loose too soon
You were my world
My reflection now standing alone

Apologies for late response ...notifications are coming in very late but at least they're coming.

Have a lovely evening xx

It's o.k. Enjoy yourself. I'm learning the guitar. I'd love to learn piano. I've only got a recorder, bugle, guitar & set of drums. I love to sing. If I play recorder or learn bugle I can't sing so it's guitar or drums or both. If I get fed up of the guitar, I'll have a go on the drums. You're never too old to learn. When I went to P.C. classes a 80 year old woman was taking all the P.C. classes they did. She did a very good job & they gave her an award for her dedication. Good Evening!

You were the foundation of my world
A cornerstone with a beating heart
Yet now you're gone

Standing on shaky ground

Flames licking
Devouring the heavens
The Gods at war again
Paint the sky
With fires and wrath
We cower in terrified awe below

Screams erupting from behind, I forced my legs to a powerful run, my shadow devoured by the apparition descending upon my back

Blood moon rising
North winds doth blow
An owl hoots in the night

Blood shall deeply flow
A prophesy
At last
Fulfilled

Warm hearth
Centre of my world
Where my soul shelters
In safety kept from all harm

My hope now foundering

Newborn on that day
The man you've become
The 1 I hoped you'd be

Planted in fertile ground
This true seed shall flourish
Protected
Nurtured
As seasons turn
Binging life once more to the land

Nourish my heart and soul
On you I depend
Both lover and friend
Only you can keep me whole

Cut the deck
Deal the cards
May good fortune scatter amongst you
But if it doesn't
Say a prayer
For the Devil shall have his due

#Darktale

.......

Twilight creeps with stealth
A perfect final scattering of light
When all fades to shadow
Before the moon rises
To shine so bright

#ntitle

Whispers ride upon the winds
Strange portents chill my blood
All hinting at what is foretold
Be it good or bad
None shall escape

The horizon fell in her eyes
As the hope rose in her heart
From beyond the sea
Where the wild horses run
He'd return to her one day

With each step we come closer to the edge, the very brink of the universe, bringing us closer together as we stare into the abyss
#Darktale

.......


Ice dripped from her lips as her eyes spoke of arctic wastes, barren of life and frozen in time

@Banquozghost


.......

Silver bells chime the hour
With none to heed but one
A bride unwed
She knows not why
Only that it is
Her eyes too dry to cry

#SenseWrds 72

In a love crime
Where bladed tongues fence
A clash of wills erupts
Yet beyond this border
A bedroom door
None shall view the storm

Rainbows paint a lowering sky
Heavens gaze down
Untouched
In vibrant hues
Defiantly arched
Luminous patterns emerge

The hour is nigh
A cock crows
Sun is on the rise
Then comes a King
His crown struck by golden rays
To gild his image in the eye

Tranquil pools
Still serenity
All a haven of silence
In solitude I sit
Amidst gardens of peace
My spirit in soft contemplation

Capture my heart

All of me
Vibrating

Just one playful smile
T'was all it took
I was captured
Focus lost
In sweet sublime emotion
I drowned in such blind devotion

Time never tells
It just marches on
Marking off days
Yet if I had wings
In my mind I would fly
Between eyelids
Freedom beckons

Free love expressed
In a wild kiss of hope
With fingers entangled
Our differences fade
Yet we love despite
In unconditional light

Laid bare upon a bed of stone
Nothing hidden from view
Nimble hands
With tools do work
Raw with love
On restoring you

Minds can barely discern
In distant alignment

Bloody flowers in the snow

Winters embrace
How long the nights
Until the soft birth of Spring
Deep within
This fire inside
Where embers glow
My heart warms

When the sands run out
And the darkness closes in
Then shall we test the mettle of our strength

#Darktale 536

You captured my heart
Tamed it for your own
Took my wings
Kept me caged
I have no words
No emotions left
An empty husk alone

Who can say
Who knows best
We do the best we can
To lay our plans
Think ahead
And in blind trust
Make that leap
And fall in love

Crimson bloom of life's rich essence spreading like rain upon a snowy field, to paint a lasting farewell...

Cloaking whatever moved
He smoked a final cigarette
Knowing it was now or never

Waited
Her web of lies unraveling

Echoing scream in the night
Steaming clouds pour skyward
That hot cup of joe would sure taste good

Time slipped by
Minutes into hours
She waited
A cat on heat
How long does it take to kiss his wife goodbye?

#noir

Wreathed in smoke
Bathed in a pool of light
A barracuda in a sea of sharks
He waited ...

#noir

.....
Desperation hung like a thick suffocating miasma in the air joining with her sweet perfume, to clog his senses
#noir

....
Her anger seethed, burned, twisted like a snake in her gut as she gazed at the lipstick on her lover's glass..
#noir

......
Crumpled, broken, she was a story waiting to be written, an image to be developed - a case to be solved ...

An ice princess, so frigid it was said icicles formed as she walked by, her widow's weeds a Raven camouflage..
#noir

One ice cool dame, waiting to confess to every sin his fevered mind could dream. But was he ready to hear it? #noir

Anger a cancer eating her from within, one day she'd find his killers and her wrath would be a hell descending
#noir

Pearls she had, by the string, by the rope - but it was him she desired and she hadn't a hope ...

Moonlit nights and misty dreams, she haunted the minds of many but her heart beat just for one

#noir

.....
Black widow spider
Grieving this night
Weave your web around him
Let him not see the light

#noir

He was a moth, drawn to her flame only to find, when he reached out for heat, he was holding glacial ice

#noir

.......
Her players were in place, now all she awaited was her Knight in Tarnished armour for the coup de grace

#Noir

What could not lie down
Remain buried deep
Beneath layers of secrets
Unvoiced desires
Seek to escape
Slip from my lips
Temptation

Rest and be thankful, he whispered, for in these quiet moments before the dawn, only the stars can hear you scream...

Taste of eagerness

Dissolving into U

Black violets scattered
Upon the ground
Beneath an Angel
She rests wearily
Her vigil now done

You stretch me
And tempt me
In ways no other has
Or shall do again

With a touch that matters
Painting your passion with roses
Volcano burning heat
My transparent heart beats

Every mother in laws dream
Yet behind this facade
Our little secret lurks
Your siren unchained

where passions run hot
beneath a bright sun
there arises a dangerous state

in a feverish state

spirits are at last freed

in hot embrace
a bewitched tango takes hold
two halves of a whole
couples weave love torn patterns
painting shadows in the night

deny me now
this reckless logic
that would stifle such wild expression
hold me tight
sweep me low
you own my heart and soul

In miserly guise
My heart
So cold
Shall beat no more for you
Under lock and key
Behind a vault
I'll keep her safe and true

Where none
In their toying
Uncaring and harsh
Shall play their tune
Upon her tender strings
For your marionette
She is not

Pristine in her virtue
Uncorrupted and pure
Behind delicate veils
Of shimmering hues
There shall she reside
Forevermore

A metronome stilled in place
A clock unmoved by time
A calendar of unmarked days
You were my sun
My dial now dimmed
By lowering sorrowful clouds

As a princess of sleeping beauty
She shall await her prince
One so worthy
And honour abound
To raise her up
Her rhythm and warmth
Once more found

A ballad referring to Viking invasions

Twas Winter, I recall
When lowering skies
And freezing winds
Gripped tight upon the land

When the pick axe blade
Swung heavy and true
No indent could it make
Upon the iron hard soil

Yes, was it then the boats did come
Dragon prows clear in the mist of dawn
Arriving on the morning tide
A swarmin' like locusts to plague our lands

No quarter did they offer
And none did we ask
But they took what they wanted
And many a hearth lay empty after

Many a widow was made that day
And orphans not forgetting too
Images seared forever in their eyes
Of invaders who would this day rue


@MercurialNight
The axe I bear
battle-notched
she sings
with the ghosts
of those I've slain
warriors
who will not walk this earth again

.@Banquozghost

In Valhalla they shall drink
And sing their songs of victories
Hard fought
Hard won
Honoured by those they left behind

@MercurialNight
Don't die
for silver
or for gold

Die where the fight is hot
where the bold
are named in awe
heroes that sup
with the gods

Strike hard
Strike fast
As the battle crow
Glory awaits
In halls of Valhalla
Make your sons proud
& your name forever sung

@Banquozghost

#SenseWrds 85

....

Foolish pride
Held my tongue
As my arms
Empty
Ache to hold you close
Cursing myself
I watch U leave
& silently scream your name
#WyldeVerse

.....

Crushed by the cruel hand of Fate
Brought down by pride
Here I lie
Neath a fruitless tree
Forgotten
No marker to kiss my scars

#ashverse

...

Glacial tears
Once locked
Begin to flow
Released
To flood the land
While high above
The sun laughed
 & conquered Winter
Hides away

#ntitle

....

Lost in the darkness of a world gone mad - shall I ever recover my sanity to live again?

#Darktale

....

Tempted by fate's whispers
Seeking the King's favour
I know nothing is free
Yet I fell
Deep
Pls forgive me
I can't forgive myself

#ashverse

....

We watched for days
The sun burning our skin
As the waters flowed around
Hope in our hearts undimmed
And at last the dove returned

#ntitl

....

Come take my hand
Let your senses reign
Submerge my mind in sweet promise
A tidal wave of desire
Rekindle the flame
Burn me deep

Untouchable
Never to be lost
Memories hang
As paintings
In the gallery of my mind
Forever captured
Treasured
In my heart to stay

The worst of me
Was all you could see
Shrouded in darkest black
You argued loud
My courageous saviour
And won!
My sentence reduced

@lordofletters

Your words fall sweetly
As soft summer rain
Upon mine ears
Which do
As thirsty flowers
Savour such drenching refreshment

Capulet & Montague
Perfectly mismatched
Staying away
Our only choice
Did we?
No
Just in time
You came
Gave me that kind of hug

By the twofold
Towards the saviour Ark
While all around
Without hope
The land is drowned
To be washed of all sin

Disbelieving eyes gaze skyward
Wide eyed witness 2 the heavenly dance
Vibrant hues lash the skies
Conducted by God's unseen hand

Hidden from sight
Deep in the woods
Sleeps a secret
Hibernating
Wrapped beneath a blanket of nuts

Though to me?

Been here so often
With U
Yet this time?
Perhaps not

Lost in the icy grip of abandonment
All I ever wanted
Desired
His touch

Watching the world
Not participating

You came
Touched my heart

Sometimes
In the night
A wolf's howl
A growled bite
I smile
And sigh
And wonder at the life
I let pass by

Beneath a willow
Weeping softly
She lay herself down
From Olympus high
On golden rays
He came
And thru Achilles
A love newborn

To drown the truth?
Words of honey
Now turned to poison?

Heart pounding
With fear?
With anticipation?
So lost in you
I no longer care

Blind
Nowhere to run
Demons on every side
Taunting
They wait
Crouched within my mind

Surrendering all

Words stuck hard in the craw

Entreated ''please'

To face the tide
Friends we were
So long ago

A howling wind
Doth rise tonight
From the North it comes
Setting all to flight
Valkyrie cries rend the air
Or are they lost souls
In despair

Tear me down
From on high
Cast me aside
Watch me die
All my dreams
Smashed
Broken
You took them all
Every last token

....

Reeling
Cast adrift
A rudderless vessel
Blown by the winds
Tossed by the sea
Seeking a haven
My love
Return to me

Weaving tendrils slip wraithlike between my lips, smoke clouding the air as I fade, a cigarette dangling from now lifeless fingers

A duet with @ispitfire

Kiss me
Let me
inhale your voice
Your sweet words
lost to my ravenous desire
I crave to feel
your passionate moan
rolling across my tongue

Feast upon ruby lips
That tremble
And spill
In sweet anticipation
Promises of adoration
And desire for your touch

@MercurialNight
Call deep
to my primal soul
Entice me
with your lustful verse
Bring forth the beast

Unleash the beast
His primordial growl

Roaring
To life
From the shadows
I wait

Anticipating his silent prowl

Raining down
A river of flame
Burning desire
Branding my flesh your own

Flames extinguish
Smouldering ashes
Embers aglow
Slumbering heat
Awaiting rebirth

#TabloPrompt

....


Strange shadows shift
Morphing misty shapes
Hungrily devouring lost souls

#Darktale

....
Ribbons of scarlet
Streaming in the sun
Dance gaily overhead
While underneath
In joyful abandon
A couple are blissfully wed

#MSpoetry

...


They talk of her still
This gentle Angel
Who once danced at the fair
Sweet apple blossom
Pure & bright
Entwined within her hair
#ShapePoetry

...

Take that chance
Roll those dice
What could it hurt?
You only live once
Don't think twice

#5prompt

Within my mind
I feel him there
Waiting
Watching
His rich scent
Aromatic
Pervasive
Enveloping my scenes
Stealing my will

#SenseWrds 114

A cat's cradle of desire
Did you weave around me tight
Now thoughts
Tangled with lust
Burn with a flame so bright

#Dsubverse

...

Tangled with lust
Sprawled in uninhibited decadence
Tasting each other's breath
Lust filled words
Husky
On the tip of my tongue

#DsubVerse

...
Each step clearly marked
Faces I knew
Happy/sad
Accusations you threw
Criticism I made
Tis the stairway to madness
Wondering why

#DarkLines

Like a nightingale
Did she raise her voice
Take a deep breath
& sing
While I
As a mocking bird
In new minted envy
Silently seethed

Singular searching caresses

When the chime is struck
Hours all gone
Then shall the strength U seek
From yourself be drawn
& in the end
Tis all we ever have

Passionate resolve
Beneath a shining moon
Whispered words
Upon a silvered shore
With time running out
We made our vows

Words tear me apart
Emotions sear my core
Leaving me raw
Bleeding from wounds
A thousand cuts
From that silver tongue of yours

In visceral torment
Ripped apart
My soul torn asunder
By your razor sharp tongue
I've bled my last
I'm born again

Billowing drapes
Teased by a gentle breeze
Or ethereal fingers
Stroking through trailing silk
Such chills
In an empty room
Or is it?

Long walk ahead

In the depths of your eyes
The mirror of our souls
I see the truth
In flickering shadows
The reflections of who I was
Once upon a time

A name that cannot B uttered lest tragedy befall
A name which no innocents shall know
A name which once spoken 4ever will enthrall

Primal urges
Undeniable
Your scent
Your touch
Your breath upon my flesh
Memories and desires
Stirring
Awakening
Hungry for more

He was my delicious secret
My unconfessed sin
Within his arms
Tender yet strong
I spread my wings
And soared to the stars

The eyes reveal all
Yet from those lips drip honeyed lies
Shield thy guileless portals
Taint not their innocence
Nor betray our trust

Dreams are secret desires
Everything we would wish
So why do we anchor ourselves
Chain our feet to the ground
Set yourself free

A wild wolf
Untamed
He called to the primal within
The secret I hid from all
But he knew
And he was
Deliciously
Bad to the bone

Clouds dancing
An angel in the sky
I lay me down
& revel in bittersweet reminiscing
Each dream cuts
Deep
Gone but not forgotten

With seductive charm and wicked wit, he designed a world of delicious temptation before my eyes that I could neither ignore nor deny

Tumbling tousled tresses
Teasing temptation

Tireless tremors

Knees buckle
Sensations flow
A dam bursts free
Anchors ripped away
Drowned by life's cacophony
I crumble on stimulation overload

Flowing from Spring
Then shall my love
In honour wreathed
Return to me again

Tumbling 2 ground
Wherever the wind takes me
There shall I sink my roots

They rose
Souls long sold
Nothing now left
But the will
The need
To devour
Consume
Leave nothing behind

Lazy fingertips find their rhythm
A maestro tuning his instrument
A quiver in his arms
Yearning for his lips
To taste my curves

Like a moth to a flame
You drew me in
Unresisting
I lost my will
Succumbed
To the delirious pleasure
Of your heated touch

Pipes sound
Upon the breeze
Echoes of a mournful song
I scatter poppies
Upon the graves
This memorial
Your memory
Never forgotten

In the dying rays of the sun
As the hours drain to nothing
Shall the stresses of the day
Slip from my mind
And slowly drift away

Crows cry murder
A shy moon hides her face
Upon a battlement
Buffeted by storms
Macbeth prowls the night
Hungry for a crown

Velvet soft
Heated breath
Warm words
Quenching senses
Brush slowly upon yearning flesh

Now a stranger

Unnoticed
So many years
I had a plan
Yet now
I'm lost

Surrendering

Rain down
Like snowflakes
Upon my face
Each a promise
A vow
Melting upon my tongue

A time gone by

Images cascade
In kaleidescopic colour
Of what we were
& could be again
Tears rain down
As laughter rings
& hope wells eternal

For what is yet to come
Be thankful
For as Spring follows Winter
So does the rose come into bloom
Tend the root
Reap the fruit

As if a candle were extinguished
His spirit left his eyes
Sudden and finite

Alone
A vessel adrift on now stormy seas

In quivering anticipation
Senses attune
Breaking free at last
Shedding my fears
To crumple helplessly & beg
Take me beneath you

U were mine long before U were her's
Before U were even aware
I'm there in your blood
Your very DNA
I'm the one U cannot replace

Obsidian stares
Merciless
To trail my passing
As a stain upon the earth
They taint the virgin landscape
Never to be forgotten

Even as the storm rages
And the lightning strikes our path
The prize ahead
Shining as bright as the sun

The coolness of the rain
Feel me closer
Always beside you
Guiding your steps
Your path through life

Silence torn
A last prayer
A final handshake
Pulses race

In slumbers deep

To drift from the earthbound shore

In bloody spiral
A moat he did so craft
That none should breach

Duet with Banquozghost

They came out of
the badlands
by twos and threes ..
at first

Shadows
demons made in smoke
eyes burning
with hunger

...
To our knees we did sink
With prayers spilling from our lips
But no one was listening
Abandoned to our own apocalypse

@Banquozghost

...
@MercurialNight
Acid smudges
extinguishing all prayer

In dank night air
dark gods reign
as they did long ago

Frail mortal
count your days

...
Spectres Hell bent
Hell spawned
To suffocate innocent souls

Nowhere to run
We stood
Heads proudly raised
Screaming defiance

@Banquozghost

...

@MercurialNight
Hear our rage,
O damn'd smoke!
Our songs
of fire and bright days
will torment you
with such joy
as you have never known.

...
With fiendish stealth
Pariahs in mist
They swarm
Engulfing all
What had life now sealed in death
Entombed in eternal embrace

@Banquozghost

...

@MercurialNight
A roar of wild winds
as life is swallowed whole
in the maw
of ghastly dark ...

...
@MercurialNight

All lost in one hellish moment

Nor whimper
nor breath of resurrection
nor spark remains
to apprehend
the awful silence

Leather bound temptation
Astride a straining steed
Wicked lips offered a dare
Surrendering
I was his
For one wild reckless hour
#WyldeVerse

Something in the darkness
Pulled me deeper
Something in the madness
Eased my mind

Darkness by BlackmoresNight

O cursed innocent
Thou fate
From birth
Was sealed
Ruby tinged fruit
Ripe with malevolence
Deny me not

O Fates
In darkness they abide
Tending the fortunes of Man
Neither conscience
Nor tender feeling
To divert their cruel task

Slipping from view
Beyond condemning eyes
Let us cavort
In bacchanalian splendour
Within my secret playground

Come plow yr furrow
Sure & deep
Sow yr fruitful seed
Within fertile ground
To reap yr lusty reward
All from my secret playground

Some 2 stand
Some 2 weep & wail
I choose 2 deny U ever were

Tempting me down the path not taken
Difficult choices 2 make
Each a personal sacrifice

Flowing upon a virgin page
A vow
An oath
Signed before witnesses
Sworn unto death

A countdown starts
Can U hear the clock?
Tick tock tick tock
Sands in an hourglass
Flowing unstopped

Draping shadows
A lonely figure kneels
Beside a petal strewn grave
Shedding silent tears
Fighting to be brave

Strengthens each day
No longer a tenuous link

A silent abyss awaits
Unholy damnation beckons

Tease my appetite

Fine verdant raiments adorn the countryside

Shooting trails across a midnight sky

To herald the oncoming salvation

For my own hand
A vow symbolised
Sworn

How sad, to relive that nightmare every night...

.@napkinwriter

Unto the end of time itself, she is doomed to retrace the steps and destiny fate has bestowed upon her

@MercurialNight

Yonder castle there
Where wizards dare
Contrive
Their potions rare
If I do dare
Do thy share
The age
Of elixir with thee...

What potion this
Miraculous
That flaunts the divinity of Gods
Mortal I be
Yet immortal I yearn
Yay to thine offer
Let us taste
@napkinwriter

@MercurialNight
Tonight I creep
The morrow we sip
Become wiser
Than kings and queens

The elixir true
Conjure you
Upon
The day of the dead

To rise beneath a newborn moon
Cloaked in shadow
My wish come true

@napkinwriter

@MercurialNight
Moon burnt
Crisp clouds encircling
Whispering
Shades of winter
Spring and summer
Fall too
Our knees buckle
And heads bow...

Bathed in cool moonlight
Bereft of Apollo's radiance
To prowl the night
Draped in shade

Footsteps fading
As the day fades 2 night
Goodbye 2 all that
As U disappear from sight
Tho U R gone
I'll survive
Tall
Still strong
#AsymLife

...

Tease my appetite
Tempt my yearning desire
With each soft sweeping stroke
You lay a swathe of fire

#CarnalVerse

...
Candy cotton licks
Balls of fluffy fur
Tumbling in my heart
With the softest of purrs

#DimpleVerse

...

Paper moon dancing
In the soft breeze
A bright shimmering beacon
Flying amidst the trees

#PoemPocket

...
A curtain falls
Yet here I sit
Needing more
Expecting less
Next act rewritten
My dreams now cancelled

From the depths
She rises
Hungering
Emerging from Stygian gloom
Ascending upon her prey
Waste no more breath
Your soul is hers

Sweetly kissed by morning sun

Velvet petals unfurling in blushing modesty
Revealing the beauty of nature

Walk the night
Beneath the stars
Worries drift away
Purify my chameleon soul
Let dark shades fall away
& return color 2 my world
#SableSwanV

...
With banners unfurled
Brazen hues blaze across the sky
Rippling in a Summer breeze
Allegiances proclaimed
A crown to be won

#SenseWrds 152

You offered your hand
And I trusted
Believed
I didn't see
I was too blind
The blade you sunk deep
Too sharp
To pierce my soul

Faithful servant
Thru the years
Always by my side
Yet now we part
My heart is raining violets
& in paradise
Shall we meet again

He had me twisted around his little finger, little did I know he'd tear my heart out upon the breaking wheel of his tender lies

#DarkLines

...

Crumbling to dust
At my feet
Those broken barriers
My arms outstretched
In aching anticipation
Nothing to separate us now

#WyldeVerse

...
A warm hug on a Winter's night
Or the soft stroke of your fingers thru my hair
So simple yet mean so much
With you
I'm unafraid

#fieryverse

...

Lost on the wind
Abandoned words
Torn from my lips B4 U heard

Discarded they flew
In wild disarray
Did they land?
I never knew

#SableSwanV

...
Pearlescent flesh
Shimmering beneath a star flecked sky
Writhing like eels
We forgot the world
Floated away
On waves of rapture

#SenseWrds

...
Gossamer stretching strands
Shimmer in moonlight's gentle touch
Weaving one unto another
To mock the frailty of its creation

#fieryverse

...
"It's not you, it's me"
Such small words
Yet with the power of a tornado
A fundamental force
Tearing my ordered world apart

#VerseReversal

...
Floating featherlight
Gentle touches
Loving words
Buoy me aloft
On a cloud of tender care
Enfolding me in a peaceful haven

#SenseWrds 155

...
One step forward
Don't look down
Have faith in yourself
Believe

Deep within
Underneath your skin
Is a lion
Breaking free

#fieryverse

...

Floating in the Stygian gloom
His eyes glowing bright
A silent ghoul above my head
He's with me every single night

Those lost souls still wandering
Searching

When shall I become one

Bewitching mists boil
Concealing elusive illusions of hope
Clutch your lucky penny in the pocket
Draw a line
Here & now
It ends

#inkedverse
...
Borne aloft on butterfly wings
Drifting by on a Summer breeze
2 leave all cares & worries behind
2 sweetly soar above the trees
#Poem_Pocket

...
Where once we danced
Two flames entwined
Now only embers glow
Yet upon the air
Passion lingers
A sensuous ghost of once what was
#DsubVerse

...
Counting sheep doesn't work
Perhaps I'll try the stars
But they shine too bright
Too fresh
Too light
Amidst a velvet sky

#fieryverse

...
Tumbling without caution
Accusations cascade from my lips
To cut so deep
That no surgeon
However skilled
Could ever make anew

#ShapePoetry

...
Stolen beneath the gaze of a beneficent moon
Dragged from sight where none could follow
Taken for the pleasure of a Dark Lord

#darktale 564

...
Rumours fly like arrows
Straight n true
2 pierce a reputation
Honest n pure
Tho centuries pass
Time itself shan't heal his wounds
#DarkLines

...
A free spirit roaming
She rambled without care
To touch all who met her
With a joy so precious
And all too rare

#SenseWrds 157

...

Stumbling behind
A thread unraveling
My whispered plea
Wait for me
Lost upon the breeze

#SableSwanV

...

Far away
There is a place
A haven from the oncoming storm
Where we can sit
And laugh and love
And dreams may safely be borne

#ShapePoetry

...

Tally my debts
One by one
I know my bill is high
& here I kneel
On supplicant knees
A life in yr service
My account paid in full

#AsymLife

...
Just one word
That's all it took
To crack my shield in two
Velvet soft
It whispered to my soul
You touched me
As no other

#Poem_Pocket

...

Coalescing storms
Lifting the edge of night
The madness of angels
Orchestrating hell
Delirium descending
To meet chaos ascending

Here in the valley
Blood runs deep
Past still echoes all around
Steeped in woodsmoke n bourbon
Until they lay us in the ground

#fieryverse

...
A handful of rain
Healing balm to my soul
Until no pain cuts
& deep within
Cancer eats
A slow moving train
Unswerving on its track
#Ashverse

...
So possessive, my love
Such tender words enfold my heart
Within your care
I offer my undying love
My future
Completely owned by U
#DsubVerse

...
Take me on a sunset ride
Golden hues to paint the sky
Dance with me upon the breeze
Wrapped in your arms
To fly so high

#WyldeVerse

...
Fireflies dance in the night
Moonlight upon their wings
Here I lie neath a velvet sky
Waiting
Hoping
Making wishes
Catching stars

#MadVerse

...

Wherever we are
No matter the time
Beside you is where I shall be
A vow to always remain
And that place
Is somewhere with you

#MadlyWylde

.
Spewed forth from acrid smoky depths
Shall a new terror arise
Cloaked in suffocating sulphurous fumes
Demonic apparitions emerge
#DarkLines

...

Ruby cloak spread thick upon the ground
Crimson poppies bleed
A vibrant memorial to those who fought
Forever remembered in deed

#fieryverse

...

Without a care
I walked away
You did not see me bleed
With carefree laughter
I greeted the world
Concealing my desperate need
#SenseWrds 156

...

Heavens align in balletic rhythm
A prophesy coming true
Aeons I've waited
So patiently biding my time
Until now reunited with U

Tell me no lies
Your lips spill desire
Passion burns in yr eyes
Shivering need
A whispered plea
Shhh
Show me

#dsubverse

Beneath the surface
Growing like weeds
Secrets so many
Hidden from view
Unseen layers
Buried so deep
As poison
They shall seep

#SableSwanV

...
He toyed with her heart
For the very last time
The bloody trail she left
Revenge so sweet
His heart now hers
A souvenir complete
#fieryverse

...
Trapped in a turbulent world
I'm learning to just let it go
When storm clouds gather
In your hands I'm finding peace at last

#DimpleVerse

...
He could scrub his skin raw
Yet nothing would wash his sins away
On his conscience they'd thrive
Parasites devouring his mind
#Poem_Pocket 8

...
Run he said
So run I did
Down the hill
Thru the woods
Would I make it in time?
Before the end?
Her life but hangs by a thread

#WrittenRiver

...

He was a fire banked
Embers aglow
But awaiting the scent
Of her sweet surrender
To arouse the beast
And seduce her below

#fieryverse

Wavering upon the brink
Before me
The future
Full of promise
Behind me
Memories
A heart breaking wrench
Just one step
Just one
#SenseWrds

Tranquility be thy shield
Sanctuary from this stormy world
Though the heavens erupt
Be sheltered within your calm haven

@utahan15

Calm healing shall be thy saving grace
As each day is renewed with the rising sun
So shall your flesh and spirit be replenished

@utahan15

Two shall argue for the one
Yet neither shall the victor be

@utahan15

...
He shall provide all that is needed
To succour the flesh and the soul
Tis but Man's conceit that it is he who decides

Shadows lengthen
Bleeding outwards
Devouring the light
Engulfing hope
Such demonic need
Suffocating
Drowning
The end is here

Tearing apart
Fragments to scatter
Shattering to stars

Kissed by the gentle rays of dawn
Warmth strokes a path upon my skin
Dusty motes play in the air
A fresh new day now to begin
#SenseWrds 160

Swept asunder
Drowned
In a tidal wave of cacophony
My senses
In tumbling confusion
Wrench free
Gentle birdsong
Now my clarity

#ShapePoetry

Prince of the Blood he may be
Yet he could pierce the armour
Slice to shreds Kingly vexed pride
As surely any common butcher

#fieryverse

Bathe me in the warm waters of your love
Beyond the scalding cauldron of passion
Let my flesh in tranquility float
Recovering

#CarnalVerse

In sinuous agility
Flowing like liquid
His scent infused the air
Flooding my senses
To slither neath my defences
Capture my heart

Accusations

Long forgotten voices
Echoing still
From dungeons calling
Despairing
Chained but for now
Once slaves to the system
Now just slaves
#Ashverse

Black as night
Cloaked in shadow
This silent messenger waits
Watches
His raven soul calling to mine
Drawing me from the light

#DarkLines 35

He watched the sun rise in her eyes
Hopes and dreams shining forth
A radiant glow infusing her cheeks
Her soft reply "yes" a vow
#VerseAngel

Across time & space
2 find each other
Defying capricious gods
Yet 2 soon we smiled
They swore revenge
A fervent desire now lost
#Poem_Pocket

A swan
Graceful
She rode the waves
Weathering the storms
To safely return
At journeys end
Unto the haven of home

#SenseWrds 161

Once red
Now green
Or is it grey?
Confusion clouds my mind
Bewildering shades
No clarity perceived
Without colour
Now resigned

#fieryverse

Lights go down around the world
One by one they fall
As power fades with the sinking of the sun

#WrittenRiver

Like jewels, I still see them
The churchyard carpeted in yellow daffodils
She loved them, you know
I like to think they knew it 2

#AsymLife

Struck to his knees
One blow too many
Humbled before a baying crowd
His spirit crushed
With no fight left
He waited
Head bowed

Out of place
Out of time
I wander so alone
Lost among the stars
Searching for a home

Autumn drapes the land
In hues of fiery finery
From gold to copper
Amber to bronze
To warm a world grown cold

She weeps upon the bank
Tho none can see her tears
Silver fronds trail
And in sluggish currents drift

Echoes of the past
Shadow my pace
Tho far may I roam
I'm never alone

With a feral grin
Devoid of fear
He boldly threw the gauntlet down
Dared them 2 pick it up
A fait accompli
What's done is done

#DimpleVerse

2 her trembling lips
She pressed her sole comfort
A crucifix blessed by the Angels
& awaited her fate
#SenseWrds 163

Freed from earthly shackles
On heaven sent wings, he flew unto the stars
Racing the claws of Hell that threatened to drag him down

Berry-stained lips which smile in delight
Sun kissed hair that ripples with life
She's an earth bound Angel
Just learning to fly

You were there
A sentinel at my back
My guardian angel

Aching 2 break free
Sometimes what's craved most

As Summer fades to Winter white
I take my leave and away I creep
#DimpleVerse

...

Was it only yesterday
That my life spun
Twisted in a spiral
When Fates laughed aloud
Teaching their lesson
& my life changed

#SableSwanV 22

Shimmering golden shades
Bronzed thru Fall's gentle light
Kaleidoscopic ribbons of light
To chase the ice
From Winter's sight

#Poem_Pocket

Ribbons in shimmering shades color my world in kaleidoscopic hues 2 raise the spirit & bring a smile to those with the power to C

These myriad lines
Reflected back
Each tells tale
A memory forgotten
Yet each I trace
They remind me
Of a life lived in full

Seal thy portals from this world
Close up thine ears to block allsound
Lay down amidst weeping willows
And lose yourself in me
#DsubVerse

...

Without U I'm bereft
Unanchored
U took love away
Denied me my haven
While U rest
Underground
Biding your time
Until we meet again
#Ashverse

...
With gleeful violence
We descend upon the feast
To devour in malevolent fury
The undefended sustenance
As they flee before us

#TastyPoem

Ethereal mists
In half light drift
From their enshrouding drape
Herons take flight
Slicing the air
To seek the dawning light

#ShapePoetry

Hold your ground
Stand fast, my friends
Before the oncoming storm
We R a bulwark of honour
Absorbing the impact with impunity

Welcome "the voice whispered"
What you desire
You shall be given
No payment but that of your soul
4 that you shall no longer need

Daisy chains for my hair
In sweet profusion grow
To garland my brow
Drape my waist
This wedding day
For his eyes only
My beau
#SenseWrds 169

Bartered my soul 2 cheaply
Traded every tomorrow
With no one 2 pray for me
Catching time beyond my grasp
As my demons turn on me

Rest gently upon layers of down
Allow what troubles U 2 slip away
As stormy clouds fading to clarity
Free your mind and breathe

What foul toxin this?
Slithering with venomous intent
To soak my veins in malignant silence
Seeping deep to steal my life

#fieryverse

For a little while
I was his
For a little while
He was my world
But things change
Time moves on
Seasons turn
And he was gone

#VerseAngel

A day 2 long without yr touch
Each passing minute
Lost & gone forever
Until we meet again
What only U can give
I'm in the mood 4

Ethereal mists swathe the landscape
I drift
Wraithlike
Thru this dream meadow
Where memories bloom
Burnished in pale light

#DimpleVerse

Bow your head
Rest your eyes
Open your heart
Raise your voice
In soft entreaty
We call upon
Beseech in hope
The divine Trinity

As comets streak across the night sky
So does my burning ambition glide
To soar with the angels
And ride the fortune I seek

As winds rise in the East
To lash the innocent earth
We cower & cry out
Beseeching mendacious gods
Yet unheeded
We're washed away

He was the ugly truth stealing her heart with words so beguiling she didn't feel the slide of the knife until it was too late

#SableSwanV

Weaving threads of my life
In hues of sumptuous simplicity
A bright halo of beauty
To chase the shadows
And chill from my bones

#SenseWrds

As if Nature herself
Splashed a russet palette
Carelessly painting a land in vivid hues
Bringing Fall violently to vibrant life
#fieryverse

...
Remorseless onslaught
We watch them come
Swamping the land
In a bittersweet rush
Riding the wind
A miasma clouded by darkness

#DarkLines

Mesmerising seductive hypnotic words
Woven by a masterful wordsmith
2 enslave my mind in captivating illusion
Losing myself 4ever

''Twas just one wish
Nothing much
But it came from the heart
Doesn't that count?
And 1 day
1 glorious day
It may just come true

With a mighty blow
His muscles bunching
He stretched forth
To smite his demonic foe
Grinding their bones 2 dust
Beneath his tread

Surrender yourself
To the demands of passion
Deny all inhibition
Reveal your layers
Lay bare your soul
In this moment
Be yourself

Tread lightly among these sentinels
Witnesses 4 aeons 2 man's treachery
Sanctuary they offer to those deserving
Death to those not

Where playful waves lap ashore
Beneath the moon's soft caress
There shall you find me
In a moonlit paradise
Bathed in starlight

Incantations
Dark n dread
Upon racing winds ride
And as the tempest rages
Devouring a moonless night
Innocents run to hide

A drenched rose
Laid in solitary splendour
In memory
Of what once was
What could have been been
What now shall never be

Wicked accordion cacophony slices my mind
Contorted faces loom from every side
Their eyes bottomless pits
Burning with hellfire

A landscape set ablaze
Nature's bonfire 2 the glory of Autumn's fall
B4 Winter's ice freezes our world
We bathe in fiery warmth
#ShapePoetry

Spun from candy cotton nightmares
Something's coming
Slithering from a demonic womb
It's howling scream to shatter the night

#MadCarnival

Freedom breathes its peace into my soul
Gentle slide of invisible fingers
To rifle my tumbling locks
Blowing in the open air

#SableSwanV

Above the burning shoreline
High upon a cliff
Sentinels gaze in silent condemnation
Of the thieving smugglers
Stealing ashore

Moonlight spiders

Starlight captured in shimmering strands
To mesmerise my unwary eyes
Draw me deeper
Tempt me from my path
Entrancing my soul

@MercurialNight
Deeper
ever deeper
I sink
the entwining sigh sublime
this enchanting light
that calls
draws me far away
from mundane cares

Within your shimmering gaze
Are rain clouds gathering
To drench
In a flood of tears
Your ashen cheeks
At this our last farewell

Tread with care, friend
Beware the demon behind the smile
''Tis not only gold they'll steal
2 the Carnival

Steadfast courage draining fast
Gaze fixed upon a beckoning siren
Icy glide of nails down your spine
Dare U follow your doom?

I thought I could
U proved me wrong
Making me beg
Yr lowest triumph
I gave U the power
U took full measure
All of me
U just took

Clouded by darkness
Lost in the shadows
He patiently waits
Though aeons may pass
Appetite unappeased
For U he shall count the hrs

Ethereal shadows float
On the edge of consciousness
Corporeal memories fading
Wisps of life dwindling
Unwilling to x that bridge

#DarkLines

...
Flickering beacons beckon
Smugglers on the prowl
From the shadows they rise
To salvage a fortune
Or risk their necks
On the noose

#Ashverse

...

Temptation spills forth
Drowning inhibitions
Swamping my parched senses
In a lake of desire
Quench my thirst
If you but dare

#DsubVerse

...

Come lie beside me
Here in the meadow
& we shall talk
Of distant places
Forgotten faces
Turning the pages
Gently
Of our memories
#SableSwanV

...
Blown in upon a predatory wind
To suffocate the cotton candy joy
Marauding carnivores run wild
Leaving a barren pitiless waste
#MadCarnival

Embrace the night
The Stygian gloom
Wrap it tight
Drown yr fear
Behind the scenes
Hidden in shadow
Lurks that which U fear most

Brushing my senses
Talons scrape
Searching
My weakness
Seeking
My downfall
Beware their smiles
Evil incarnate
Close encounters
#MadCarnival

Transfixed by the gaping hole
I tumbled in
My scream echoing
Endlessly I fell
My mind shattering
From an abyss without escape

#horrorprompt

Forgive me
I whispered
Crumpled on my knees
Fervent gaze urgent
Guilt a cross I now must bear
Your pain a knife to my heart

#SenseWrds 173

One small sin
2 cast such a shadow
Dogging my steps
A poisonous shadow
A festering sore
2 be lanced
Set free
In urgent confession
#AsymLife


...
Prowling forward in shaded stealth
Leaning 2 brush an icy kiss of death
Unheeding my predatory poison
Waiting hungrily on my lips
#DarkLines

...
Lash me with an insatiable tongue
I shall not bend
Nor kneel to yr will
Bind me tight
In knots of desire
Capture my mind
Tease me

Smoke & fury
Upon a wind blown horizon
A fiery glow in the night
Shadows writhe
Upon exhausted faces
This one hell of a night

Fallen
They whispered
Beyond all grace
Lost to the world
For now
Fortunes Wheel spun
Cast out
Who once was high
Now brought low

Reviled in crimson
Grin lasciviously on each side

Spindly fingers
Flesh eaten bone
Beckon me on
Woe betide

With supercilious venom
"I don't"

For journeying souls
Seeking a safe passage home

Scarlet letter upon my breast

My headstone a rough tablet
Inscribed with my shame

Harmonious nature in transcendence
The great expectations of man
Without substance deny existence

Beguiled by the madness
Riotous hallucinations
Wary gaze defies the shadows

Desperately twisting
Searching

No titanium ricochet
Shall pierce my bullet proof heart
No fearless thrust

Swarming spectres
Drift in shifting mist
Silent sentinels
Patient guardians
Awaiting my decay

Shall I engrave our love
With a spade shall I dig
Plant a rose

Scent of bonfires

Soft
Sensual
When the fog rolls in

The scent of magic in the air

Blow ye winds
From the north
Valkyries upon chariots
Do wildly ride
A paradise lost
Torn apart
Whimsical creatures
Run 2 hide
#SenseWrds 178

...
Beneath a luminous moon
A barren wasteland lies
In which a shivering waif
Lonely & lost
Seeks a haven
From her prowling assassin
#HeartWrds

...
Tormented by the clocks tick
Insomnia a twisted sword
Sunk deep in my mind
Caged in a nocturnal hell
Where nights are so unkind
#DimpleVerse

...
Here we are one
A world of our own
Where limbs entwine
& emotions boil
Whispered vows
Oaths sworn
Shared breaths
One to the other
#DsubVerse

My taken heart
Set free
To soar
Our undone love
Unravelling fast
Immaculate dreams
Now shattered
My senses
Betrayed
Stay blind

#Ashverse

Underground rhythm
Do U hear the beat?
Or is that my blood
Pounding in my veins?
My life unspooling
2 a twisted maestro's command
#DarkLines

To hear his voice
After so long
Emotions
In vicious confusion
Swamp my mind
His words
So tender
Familiar
Unlocking memories

#SenseWrds 179

The ebbing of the tide
Stranding shells upon a shore
As surely as the ebbing of your love
Time after time
Stranded my heart

One step
Two steps
It's not that hard
With you by my side
Life's red carpet
Vibrant & rich
Stretches unending
In promise
B4 us

A red carpet glide
In glitter and gold
Light bulbs aflash
We're bought and sold

In this age of desire
U captured my heart
In these dandelion years
Floating adrift
Wrapping U tight
My analogy
My life
Complete

Vows whispered
A maiden's prayer
In curious wonder
Lace concealed gaze
Consumes a man beside
Branded his
By this band of gold

Blood red tears
Upon a virgin's gown
With but a single kiss
Is a tender life eclipsed

Lost in my sapiosexual fascination
A cerebral seduction
Strictly between us
Enthralled by your mind
And this secret we share

High class toys
Tease hot blooded boys
Seeming out of reach
From gutters so rough

Sweeping away
All trouble and strife

From the heavens

Darkly marked in eternal ink

On Halloween night

We hear their screams
Bathe in their fear

Thunderhead battalions form
The fate of Man to still be weighed

Once flaming torches gutter
Withering to ash
Dancing shadows on the wall
Now fade to inky black
And creeping

Silent sentinel
Upon the hill
Shunned by all
Stands a hangman's tree
Stealing souls away
Discarded ghostly roses
Garland his feet

Passion seethes
Dark & stormy
A promise of conflagration

From whence they come
None do know

Phantom thoughts roam my mind
Trailing memories whisper
Gone before I can grasp
They fade like shadows
No trace left behind

Flesh & blood vessels without anchor
Tossed in a passionate thigh gripping storm

Bleeding across an empty page

Glittering possession vowed
A black widow poised
Barely restrained
Hungry for the prize

Wade into the water
Submerge yourself beneath
Feel the tumbling flow
Dragging you deeper
Swept by the undertow
Her spirit anew

#HeartWrds

...
An English Rose
She flourishes
Nourished by the warmth of his love
& soft rain of his words
She blossoms in pastel splendour

#Poem_Pocket

...
An empty shell
Without shadow
Aimless he drifts
A dead man walking
Forgotten by all
He bides his time
Hungering for the end

#DarkLines

...
Glittering effervescence
Exploding in the sky
Rainbow shimmering hues
Reflecting in your eyes
With sparkles to match the stars

#VerseAngel

...
Teetering on the edge of regret
My heart bleeds out from such an amorous affliction
This blighted romance a curse without cure

#DimpleVerse

...
Always drifting
Just out of reach
Those fleeting memories
Here then gone
As days fade to years
Still desperately chasing moments
#SableSwanV

...
Lashed by the whip of desire
Passions boil
Spilling like lava
To brand my soul
Swamp my senses
This craving for you undenied

#SenseWrds 188

...
Where wild swans settle
There shall my love & I bide
To watch the seasons turn
Ever changing
While we stand still
Just you & I

Tempestuous gods divine
Scatter benevolence in abundance
2 warp humanity in greedy compliance
Our true nature laid finally bare
#DimpleVerse

...

Let us remember
When light fades to black
The blood that flows in us all
Never ending
Unceasing
That Death himself cannot staunch
#DarkLines

...
Teetering upon a brink
Oblivion beckoning
The Dragon reels with a snarl
Dawning courage bursting free
Battle lines now drawn

#SenseWrds 189

...
Locked in mortal combat
Teeth bared in snarling defiance
Crimson flourishes in vibrant spray
To daub their struggling forms

#microprompt

...
Nimble Eros dances lightly on my mind
Tempting me with sensuous lips
2 slip traitorous inhibitions
Test the edge of my sensuality
#DsubVerse

...
Let's raise a glass
& 1 more then
2 the friend we will not see again
In shadow he fades
Memories linger
His soul beyond all pain

#DarkLines

...
At the drawing close of the day
There he shall be
Forever my haven
My shelter from the storm
To chase the clouds away

#SenseWrds 190

...

Scent of summer
When time was young
& seemed without end
But all too soon
Those days now gone
& only remembrance of roses left

#madVerse

...

Light fades
Dies away
Until all is dark
Silent

Then it is
I feel your touch
Breath
Upon my neck
Just when I'm lost
You find me

#SableSwanV

...

Hypnotic rhythm
Wraps tight
Tethering my mind

In sensuous sway
My hips enslaved
My self control unbound

#Rhythmic_Words

...

Dandelion dreams
Blown upon the breeze
Each a drifting
Perfect
Simple
Wish
Asked of Mother Nature
Begged of capricious Gods

#Poem_Pocket

...

An Amazon
Taking names
Sweeping danger aside
Stalking her prey
Their hearts black as night
Why run?
You've nowhere to hide
#writtenriver 856

...

Well well
What's this?
All alone
Wandering the night
Let me walk with you
Escort you home
My reward?
Nothing much
Just
One
Bite

#DarkLines

...
Sensual words
An evocative touch
Warm memories come 2 life

A radiant smile
Neath dancing eyes
Offer sanctuary from all strife

#DimpleVerse

...

Fingers point
Whispers rise
Of grey doves & black roses
Scattered upon a tomb

A heart broken
Bleeding
Waits silent in the shadows
#madVerse

...

With a last farewell
Soft cinnamon kiss
Autumn
In glorious display
Sheds her bronzed glory
Draping a land in fire
As Winter dawns

A literary dance with Banquozghost, who writes first:

I walk home

Each step I count

At home
each sigh
each tick of the clock
each drip of that tap
I never fixed

I count them
since you left

...

Bare walls
Unadorned
Where once your image hung

Press close
Suffocate
Crushing my now dying spirit

Still
In longing
I wait

@Banquozghost

...
@MercurialNight
Hush of air
settles
on hungry skin

Aching for tenderness
you do not come
do not touch

Memories
tears
frozen in my fingers

...

Ethereal wraiths whisper in my mind
Memories of soft words
Whispered
Do linger
& then R gone
Haunting me yet
With every breath
@Banquozghost

...
@MercurialNight
Last fingers of smoke

A fire dies

Red veins of heat
turn to grey worms
of ash
slinking
into stillness

Cold without you

...

Embers flicker
Fighting 4 life
2 blaze again

This smouldering ash
Dusted on the floor
Then born aloft
On a breeze
Dispersed

@Banquozghost

A duet with Billy

A thread unravelling
I come undone
A reel unspooling
Spinning out of control
Hurtling unto oblivion
A wild ride without end

#fieryverse

...
@MercurialNight
Spinning in this turmoil
Of confusion.
Bereft of all delusion!

...
Bewildered minds spin
Sinking into the mire
With no escape offered
Our predicament so dire

@BdWhizz

...

@MercurialNight
Come with me
Intito my gaining plot.
Smile with me,
Such words hard sought!

...

Words as tendrils
Enclose my mind
As fingers sleek
They brush my soul
Tempt me forth
Commit me whole

@BdWhizz

...
@MercurialNight
There upon
There upon ;
I finger your soul.
One day soon
I shall reach my goal!

...
Then whisper me soft
Of that very day
When souls shall collide
And desire holds sway

@BdWhizz

...
@MercurialNight
The infinite diviine
Holds a complicated sway.
Little defines what defines,
What we really need to say!

Footsteps echo
Lost from sight
Sirens scream
Shatter the night
The lonely streets
Witness to much
Keep my secrets
Bear no grudge
#VerseAngel

...
Taste my words upon your tongue
Feel my heat in a burning kiss
A primal touch we crave so much
Is ours, my love, branded bliss

#DsubVerse

...
Ravens take flight
Heading West
Skies are a-boil
A demonic tempest

Innocents flee
Kneel & pray
Hell has arrived
Come to stay

Troubadours sing of courtly love
While our eyes betray deep longing
Stealing our guilty pleasures
Concealing our secret crush

#DimpleVerse

Troubadours sing of courtly love

Feelings so delicate
Tender and true
Like lace
Veil my heart
As I whisper
I love you

Your scent
Your touch
Love you
So much

#HeartWrds 16

Inch by inch
Creeping slow
From the shadows slip
A demonic flow
Scuttling claws
Scraping wood
Close in 4 the kill
This isn't good
#DarkLines

...
Always in our breast
Hope never dies
We've come so far
Yet somewhere it lies
In the distance
On a horizon
Ever out of reach

#ShapePoetry

...
Mine is the breath upon your neck
The shadow at your back
Tho your heels sprout wings
U cannot hide
You'll be my fugitive snack
#DimpleVerse

...
A Celtic dream
A lyrical muse
She rises from the stream

To cast her spell
In language pure
Her temptation undeniable

#SenseWrds  192

...
Captured forever
Monochrome memories
Upon a wall they hang

Treasured keepsakes
Each one a gem
All that remains is a lonely pang

#madVerse

...

Break my heart
Serrate my love
I'm never letting go
You're my angel
& I'll wait for you
Drowning in love
& your tender embrace
#magickverse

...
Beneath these wings
Sanctuary is offered
Where your fugitive heart
So bold
Yet scarred
May breathe again
& to the heavens
Soar

#DimpleVerse

...

Fortune's wheel spins once again
Casting unfortunates down
Stormy weather gathers her wrath
To sweep clean this damned town

#ShapePoetry

...
Raindrops fall from on high
Angelic tears a silent waterfall
A refreshing wave upon dusty lands
To quench the thirsting Earth

#writtenriver

Never mind the darkness
Blessed yet safe
Nothing lasts forever
& killing the pain
Inflicted by restrained love
Cuts too deep

#Ashverse 372

With your tongue
Upon my flesh
Weave your spell
So wicked

Inscribe your love
In salacious strokes
Drive me wild
Torment & coax

Smouldering embers
Barely aglow
R all that's left
He left long ago
Do I take him back
Let him go
What's done is done
But even so

#SenseWrds

...

At the cry of a raven
Shadows slip forth
To roam the dark of night
With intentions unspeakable
Deadly vengeance strikes out
#Rhythmic_Words

...
An empty shell
Where once laughter lived
And can thrive once again
Come walk with me
Imagine the promise
Of a dusty home reborn
#DimpleVerse

...
Crimson streaks on high
Clouds take sullen shape
To frame a Blood Moon Rising
Looming portent threatens
A nightmare Devil's drape

#PoeVerse

Sophisticated connoisseur
His tastes ever so refined
With complex simplicity
His pomegranate penchant
So succulently defined

#DimpleVerse

...

Upon ragged shores of your derision, shall I bleed eternally. You're hard to resist yet still not an angel & I'll never change.

#Ashverse

...
Melancholy waves roll
As rain logged clouds in the sky
Memories scrolling ever faster
Upon a magic lantern
That is my mind's eye
#VerseAngel

...
Time is a cruel trickster
Swift one day
Yet to a snails pace the next
Stealing what is precious
Only melancholy memories left

#Poem_Pocket

...
Wreathed in sunlight
She stands
A beacon shining
For one and all
Her welcoming arms
A haven so safe
Sheltering all who come

#fieryverse

...

Cast down
Beyond redemption
A fallen angel
Without exception
Wings now clipped
Dreaming of flight
Darkness falls
Upon her plight

#DarkLines

As shadows fall
2 gently drape
Steps echo
Coming closer
A secret assignation
Arms wrap
As lips meet
Whispers soft
Rising heat
#SenseWrds 194

Time passes in languid flow
Limpid pools gaze in adoration
Whispering to U my love poesy
I languish in a candle's lambent glow

#DimpleVerse

376 #Ashverse

Sinking fast
Going under
Time slipping past
Under strain
Lungs fight for life
Exhausted beady eyes
Almost blind
Fade out

In shadow
Shall my dark poet come
His feathered mastery
Unsurpassed
Desiring a rope's kiss
Senses scream
To his knife's caress

Chase the shadows from your life
And walk in light forevermore
Feel the warmth upon your skin
& together your hearts shall soar

From a twisted mind
Desires shall spiral
Ever deeper
Always darker
Until all is stripped bare
To raw
Hungering
Naked
Need

Winter's soft blanket
Spread pristine white upon the ground
Sparkling in the sunlight
With not a whisper of sound

#SenseWrds 195

Thru life everlasting
Beside me U walk
Tho we do not speak
I feel your breath
Tho I cannot see U
I know you're there
Haunting me

#DarkLines

Without you beside me
This Summertime of my life
Stretches endlessly
Locked in Winter's embrace
Until the moment of your return

#SenseWrds

...

Whisper
Rumour
Lies in truth
Bleed my soul
Suck dry my youth
My paper thin courage
Barely there
Yearns in hope
If he'd but care

#SableSwanV

...

Sum of all fears realised
& bleeding ashes
At my feet scatter
Neath falling skies of grey
& crying angels
In marble locked
Do pray
#ashverse

...
Light the candle
Draw forth the flame
Calling the shadows
We invoke thy name

Time's tempest
Stormy brows
Lies in wait
Then goes

#madVerse

...
Such a masterful touch
Rhythm divine
Manipulating aggressive curiousity
He commands my senses
Demanding my submission

#DsubVerse

...
Alleyways that lead nowhere
Between these tombs of stone
Where echoes of laughter
Fade on the wind
Mementoes of souls long gone

#PoeVerse

Alleyways that lead nowhere
Between these tombs of sorrow
Where echoes of laughter
Fade on the wind
Mementoes of souls long gone

#PoeVerse

Alleyways that lead nowhere
Between these tombs of sorrow
Where echoes of laughter
Fade on the wind
Mementoes of souls long gone

#PoeVerse

...
With an unblinking malevolence
He observes closely from afar
His opaque jet gaze fixed
In silent condemning obsidian regard

#VerseAngel 64

...
A thread unravelling
He walked away
Secrets left hanging
Ends come undone
Frayed at the edge
I thought they'd hold
But no more
#Poem_Pocket

...
His heated gaze devouring my undulating curves
He watches intently in silence
An intense voyeur savouring my decadent display

#dsubverse

...
PINNED to the wall
My head TILTED
BARELY coherent
Evading the camera's PERUSAL
TINGLES spiralling deep
NOT ENOUGH I cry
No MORE
#DimpleVerse

...
''Tis an inescapable truth that the more I deny his singular touch, the more I ache to feel his passionate embrace

#SableSwanV

...
Angelic wisdom from on high
Guiding me through each day
A guardian forever walking beside me
Gently showing me the way

#SenseWrds 197

...
Winter's frigid unfeeling grace
Steals silently as a thief
Her frozen glacial facade
Concealing an Arctic vow of desolation

#fieryverse

...
WINTER TEARS slip SILENTLY
Tender gaze in quiet adoration
Upon the frozen ICE QUEEN
Encircled by crystalline BLUE REFLECTIONS

#DimpleVerse

...
Mother Natures WINTER TEARS
Cascade SILENTLY from heaven's brow
BLUE REFLECTIONS of Natures ICE QUEEN
Cast in frozen perfection
#DimpleVerse

...
Rough at the edge
He got things done
A walking talking Emery board
Gathering friction at every turn
He rubbed em wrong
Up & down

Duet with Banquozghost

Ravens take flight
Heading West
Skies are a-boil
A demonic tempest

Innocents flee
Kneel & pray
Hell has arrived
Come to stay

@Banquozghost

@MercurialNight
No shelter, no last chance
to run
when devils dance!
Cloven feet stamp foul the earth.
Plead for death
and curse my birth!

A waste of breath
to kneel and pray
Hell has come!
There's hell to pay.

O screaming demons
Ride the wind
A tempest thou hast wrought on Earth
Where all is now barren
Cast down
Without worth

@Banquozghost

@MercurialNight
Begins the helter-skelter flight
from crazed apocalyptic fight

What sanctuary
what place is there to hide
when devils ride

Seal thy portals from this world
Close up thine ears to block allsound
Lay down amidst weeping willows
And lose yourself in me
#DsubVerse

...

Without U I'm bereft
Unanchored
U took love away
Denied me my haven
While U rest
Underground
Biding your time
Until we meet again
#Ashverse

...
With gleeful violence
We descend upon the feast
To devour in malevolent fury
The undefended sustenance
As they flee before us

#TastyPoem

...
Ethereal mists
In half light drift
From their enshrouding drape
Herons take flight
Slicing the air
To seek the dawning light

#ShapePoetry

...
Hold your ground
Stand fast, my friends
Before the oncoming storm
We R a bulwark of honour
Absorbing the impact with impunity

#DimpleVerse

...
Welcome "the voice whispered"
What you desire
You shall be given
No payment but that of your soul
4 that you shall no longer need
#DarkLines

...
Daisy chains for my hair
In sweet profusion grow
To garland my brow
Drape my waist
This wedding day
For his eyes only
My beau
#SenseWrds 169

...

Bartered my soul 2 cheaply
Traded every tomorrow
With no one 2 pray for me
Catching time beyond my grasp
As my demons turn on me
#Ashverse

...

Rest gently upon layers of down
Allow what troubles U 2 slip away
As stormy clouds fading to clarity
Free your mind and breathe

#SableSwanV

Close your eyes
Draw the blinds
Let yourself drift
Into such sweet slumber
Where he awaits
Come kiss a dream
You know you want to
#PoemTrail

If we are given only tonight
Let us fill it with whispers & sighs
1000 nights alone ahead
So love me into memory
So precious n true

A steadfast bastion
Protecting those he must
With truth n honesty
Justice n courage
He does what's right
With integrity n trust

Don't stop
Tho I know U must
Give me 5 more minutes
In U I trust
Heaven awaits
Just within reach
So close, my angel
Don't preach

Life's not a fairytale
Not even close
A struggle from birth
So stay on yr toes
& U will achieve
What U dream of
All in good time
& with love

...
So close we stand
Yet far apart
No bridge between
Blood ties that bind
We cannot break
Our fate decreed
Young hearts do break

#ShapePoetry

...

I kneel before the alter of your grace
Gifted by Passion's benevolence
To offer my heart
My body & soul
Unto my Master's care

#DsubVerse

This kiss
A communion
Silent homage

#DimpleVerse #sixwords

...

Tossed in an emotional maelstrom
This kiss was my anchor

#DimpleVerse #tenwords

A tender salute
2 B savoured
When Winter comes
& nights grow cold
The kiss U gave
Warms a heart
My memories 2
Now that we R old
#DimpleVerse

...

You played your hand
Tempted fate
Stacked the deck
And lost

Now the Devil's here
To claim his due
Pay your debt
You know the cost
#madVerse

...

Cards laid down
An opening gambit
With no hard limits
Nerves on edge
Time draining fast
Make your final move
Don't count the cost

#madVerse

...

What lies within
This flesh bound cage
Beats 4 U
& always will
If you'd but hear
It's passionate beat
My naked heart
& so true

#DarkLines

...

Capricious Gods
Their moods in mad swing
Toying with Man
Manipulating our strings
Olympian puppet masters
And we their unaware mannequins

@MercurialNight
No plaything, I.
No man to be instructed,
"Get you gone! Come you on!"
The gods I see
are deaf and blind,
know not my mind.


Defiance blazing
You tempt your fate
What they decree
You shall receive
No reward
No prize
For he who fights
He who defies

@Banquozghost


@MercurialNight
Should I be merchant then
trade favours
in a mask of mock devotion?
Or should I face them
in naked honesty?
Aye! I'll defy!

An actor playing a part
Assume a mask of quiet devotion
Defy them if U must
But why call divine wrath down
& be ground 2 dust

@Banquozghost

...
Though we may stumble
Upon this path of life
Lose our way
Or fall
Never cease moving
Always in motion
Heeding Fate's silent call
#fieryverse

ONCE UPON A TIME
A beautiful SEDUCTRESS
Held captive
In IMPERFECT chains
Wove tales
So magicallyTANGIBLE
Her name?
SCHEHERAZADE
#DimpleVerse

Waves of desire
Crash & foam
Caught in the storm
Drowning in sensation
To lie
Tossed and spent
Upon passion's burning shore

#CarnalVerse

Bonds of fellowship
Stretched yet unbroken
Forever shall bind us tight
Whatever happens
Be it good or bad
This day we fight

Celestial wonder
Stargazing magic
We stand entranced beneath
The heavens align
Among cascading comets
The fate of Man decreed

Long road winding
Unto the horizon
Anticipating adventure
Excitement building
Foot on the gas
Road trip extravaganza
Let's go!

A timeless beauty
Without compare
She shimmered
And shone

A silver screen angel
Who fell to earth
Leaving us much too soon

#SenseWrds 199

What message this
That upon swift wings
Does from the battle come?
His bloodied visage
Does bear ill news
Delay us not
Let's go!
#fieryverse

Covetous eyes
Lasciviously concealed
Do spurn
Clandestine lovers
Locked in sweetest sin
Forbidden desires
Spill temptingly forth

Gratitude & peace
In a New Year
As the last dance fades
Is this truly time for goodbye
Not with the promise
Of a new adventure

Flirting with fate
Emotions unravel
Fraying fast
My tangled state of mind
A labyrinthine maze
Of snarled turmoil

Cut to the bone
My heart bleeds
Trapped in an agony of love

Tumble endlessly in free fall
As sleepy squirrels
In slumber deep
Wait for Spring
Fast asleep

Sweet cinnamon kisses
Brightly hued sprinkles
Cast with abandon
To coat icing wrinkles

A clean slate at last
What I've done

Without excuses
Facing myself
The hardest thing
With hands of uncertainty
Now untied

POTENT symbols unseen
Wild PORTENTs rend the sky
ENVELOPED by ARDOUR

Slumberous gaze devouring
Dexterous fingers capture your silken locks
Lips parting in moist invitation
Breathing you in

Ethereal echoes of mourning whispers
Slipping between two worlds

I hear him plead
"Find your way back to me"

Wrathful heart
Black as night
Patiently waits
Enjoying your plight
Vengeance takes time
2 B done right
Inch by inch
Feel my bite

If ever your lips forget mine
Remember this
A whispered goodbye
& soft promise
Shall keep us breathing
Echoed sighs til we meet again

Gathering storms
Breathless in the distance
Boil in promise

As day falls to dusk
We watch and pray
The storm will go away

Each soft spoken word
Tender whisper
Falling from your lips
Is as if angels in passing
Knead my lovelorn heart

Our gazes met
Were captured
Entranced we stared
A moment shared
B4 the train moved on
A missed opportunity
The what ifs of life

Boiling in tempestuous promise

Ink stained fingers sketching tender promises upon her parchment flesh

Our souls touched in flight

Each time this year
In eyes so bright
Shine wonder and hope
Bathed in warm firelight
Dreaming of Santa

Sipping mulled wine
Warming by the fire
Enfolded in strong arms
That tighten with desire

Vibrant soothsayer
Your crimson warning
Designed upon a scarlet sunrise
Heralds nature's wrath
Beneath these bleeding skies

I give myself
Body and soul
Entirely unto your possession

And in return
In carnal bargain made
You shall become my obsession

Wound courageous hearts
With emotions concealed
Pretending we care

Too short a span

Ravens take flight
Heading West
Skies are a-boil
A demonic tempest

Innocents flee
Kneel & pray
Hell has arrived
Come to stay

@MercurialNight
No shelter, no last chance

There's hell to pay.

Ride the wind
A tempest thou hast wrought on Earth
Where all is now barren
Cast down
Without worth

Begins the helter-skelter flight
from crazed apocalyptic fight

What sanctuary
what place is there to hide
when devils ride

DISPELLING dark thoughts
My EQUILIBRIUM regained
PERHAPS I'll forgive
Forget
ONE DAY
But not now
Not today
Oh just NEVER MIND
#DimpleVerse

...
Though years may pass
Fading away
You shall forever remain

#hangtenstories

...
Gather round
Let us remember
Dip deep into the well
Let us speak
Of good and bad
Times long past
Those tales we can all tell

#fieryverse

...
Such innocent eyes
Rapt in their imagination
A carpet of blooms
They lift their faces
To follow the sun
Entranced
They sit

#HeartWrds

Birthed from a storm
Running wild & free
He was said 2 have a wolf's spirit
That none could tame
Capture

#Ashverse

Magenta hues
In saturation
Drench my flesh
In carnal bliss
My secret no more
Unlocked 4 all
To see
& wonder
Did YOU cause this?
#CarnalVerse

...
It lit the flame
That sudden spark
In a flood of thought
I found my drive
Poetic words poured forth
A slave to the muse no more

#PoemTrail

...

Cast adrift
Let loose to roam
He stalks the lonely night

Cloaked in shadow
Seeking his prey
His dark beauty seduces
Devours
All

#DarkLines

...
Cinnamon kisses
Logs aflame
Mulled wine warmth
Sighing your name
Blanketing snow
Jack Frost calling
Sleepy eyes
Lashes falling

#Poem_Pocket

...
Cinnamon kisses
Logs aflame
Mulled wine warmth
Sighing your name
Blanketing snow
Jack Frost calling
Sleepy eyes
Lashes falling

#Poem_Pocket

...

Touch of moonlight madness
Taste of rain upon my lips
Skating on the ice
Pirouetting shapes
Cheeks rosy from a kiss of frost

#MadVerse

...
A colourless sky
Bleached of vibrancy
Looms above my head

I look to spring
In anticipation
Of the warmth
And picnics ahead
#fieryverse

...
In hot blood
Accusations flew
Back & forth
Verbal stilettos
Loosed by intimate assassins
To pierce the soul
& leave us bleeding

#VerseAngel

...

A WARPED fantasy
My own mental MIRAGE
As day INVERTED to night
His gaze burned with PERSUASION
My lusty CHIMERA now my reality
#DimpleVerse

...

Icicles hanging
Needles pointing
As four eager little elves
Sitting on a snowflake
Wait for Christmas
& Santa running late

#SenseWrds 203

...
"Yes", I whispered
My fate sealed in that one word

#hangtenstories

...
Stars shining bright
Scattered across the heavens
Such a sequinned canopy
Against the velveteen dark
Each one a promise
Of more
#fieryverse

...

The crushing anguish
Desperation
That rises to taunt
Wound
The hope diminished
Dream let go
All upon a paper
Clear of ink
Of life
#BentHalos

...

Words that once did wound
Now heal
Close up the tear you did rend
Make it as if new
If you can
I see you for what you are
Now
#writtenriver

...

#Ashverse
Tearing out my heart
Letting you go
Was the hardest
Your smiling carnival lips
Seduced my one way trip
To the place I lost in love

...

Haunting strains of a requiem
Thread the silent night
A danse macabre
The risen undead
Brought to skeletal life

#Rhythmic_Words

...
Soft cries bitten off
Silenced by a masterful hand
In burning anticipation
Poised
She waits
Of what he next has planned

#DsubVerse

...
Rain spattered
Blood spattered
All the same to me

Been here so long
I've become a ghost
Unseen
Unknown
My soul burned away

Pure in thought
She gave herself

#sixwords
#DimpleVerse

Unsullied and pure
In sparkling glacial clarity
Refreshing in simplicity

#tenwords

Bold bravery
Courageous & true
Steps forward
To raise in valour
This flame of freedom
In chivalric endeavour
With cowardice forbidden
#NMCRP

...
Beneath the glitter
Gloss and smiles
Warm scent of pine
And candles aglow
Where simple honest love
Awaits underneath elegance
#writtenriver

...
In hues of brilliance
Shining bright
Beats a stained glass heart
Raining light
Rings wrapped in velvet
Simple wishes vowed
Forever

Promise me heaven
With all that you are

Bequeath me hell
When you journey too far

...

Time
That precious commodity
Slipping by
This home I once knew
Cherished
Now lost in the past
Yet gilded memories
Of us
Live on

#SenseWrds

...
Upon a snowflake
Wrapped in wonder
Sat a Christmas elf

#hangtenstories

...
Sullen clouds
With Winter snow
In swollen misery
Loom

While far below
In expectation
Children do gather
Eyes eagerly aglow

#fieryverse

...
So many locks
Without keys to be found
Lay strewn behind me
To cover the ground
Each a memory
Forever locked
But never mocked
#tabloprompts

...
A Winter queen
With frozen tears
She waits in anticipation

Of a Snow king
For whom snowflakes dance
To offer a diamond ring

#Poem_Pocket

...
What demonic hand
Dipped in blood
Designed this cruel facade?
Etched in pain
And agony deep
Brush stroke lacerations
Wounds seep
#DarkLines

...

With a beckoning smile
Tempting
Seductive
He drew me ever closer
I breathed him in
Succumbed
Surrendered
Drowning myself in sin
#VerseAngel

...
A MOODY MEETING OF MINDS
Concealing STACCATO words
As TAILORED bullets
Rend
And STILETTOs
In taught intimate glide
Nimbly TANGO
#DimpleVerse

...
Set sail upon waves of stardust
Blown by playful solar winds
To ride the crest of racing comets
Seeking glory beyond the stars
#Poem_Pocket

...
Firelight glow
Pine cone scents
Whispers
Smiles
Warm mulled wine
Between cupped hands
To sip
To savour
While limbs entwine
🎄
#SenseWrds

...

Torn from my lips
Fate was 2 cruel
The words I tried to say

My wasted breath
Was his undoing
A breaking point
& he walked away

#SableSwanV

...

#MadVerse

Dreams are born
In a cradle of light
Where nostalgic melancholy
Surrenders to quiet contemplation
And hope is resurrected within

...
Around fires aglow
Gather our friends
All whom we know
As night descends
To welcome a Winter solstice
And the season moves on

#VerseAngel

...
Clothed in Mother Nature's finest
Succulent enticement sublime
My hunger
My desire
Deepens
My resolve
So weak
Surrenders

#SenseWrds 207

...
Storm tossed soul
Shipwrecked
Bereft
Spent upon life's shore
A wounded vessel
Without anchor
Never to sail again passion's ocean
#TastyPoem

...

Her dreams UNSUPRESSED
With burning ambition
She aimed for the GLASS CEILING
EXPANDING her boundaries
& REACHed FOR THE STARS

#DimpleVerse

...

As ivy 2 the branch
Our souls do so entwine
Each a part of the other
Until death do us part
& in the final reckoning
Bury us as 1
#DarkLines

...

To be with you
This Christmas Eve
Is truly my heart's desire
Sharing sweet candy kisses
'Neath hanging mistletoe
Beside a fire

DRIFTING along NEGLECTED alleys
Lurking upon street CORNERs
The DEBRIS of life strewn
With none to ASK WHY
Crying DON'T DO it

#DimpleVerse

...
Careless whispers in the dark
Softly spilling from passions lips
Stripped bare in the light of day
While shamed eyes turn away
#DimpleVerse


..Rumours flew
On swift envious wings
Careless whispers
That did rend
A talent so rare
In peace may he rest
As I offer a prayer

#DimpleVerse

...
From the mint
To the chocolate
In layers sublime

Decadent essence
Tinctures so sweet
Buds of taste
To deny would be a crime

#SenseWrds 209

...
With a bow to the Bishop
She doth ride
With a Knight so bold
By her side

@ljgrodecki @whykatwrites @CarolineBuffa @WSJ

...
Nature's appetite shall surely be appeased by such a tempting feast spread for her delectation

#luckypawn

@ljgrodecki @whykatwrites

...
Upon gossamer wings
Let her take flight
To the stars she will fly
Drowned in moonlight

#writtenriver

...
Torn from our grip
Blown away
Lost on life's capricious breeze

Memories of us
Of what we had
Scattered as if Autumn leaves

#SenseWrds 209

...
Left upon a shelf
A WELL THUMBED volume
Concealing HIDDEN PLEASURES
and fragrant SECRET PASSAGES
Within her FRAGILE BINDING

#DimpleVerse

...

Dreamy gaze of a forest shade
Hides concealed in wonderland
A fairytale unfolding
In sweeping imagination
Of a damsel waiting
#SenseWrds 210

...
We stand upon the cusp of destiny
Anticipation a dread stone in our bellies
To face the dawn and what may come
What Lady Fate has in store

@MercurialNight @beth_radley
Grim mouths muttering
soldiers' prayers
we meet the charge
with steel and leather

No quarter asked
none given

Valorous hearts stoutly defend
A swathe they cut
Steps traced in blood
That in the final hour
When all appears lost
To win in glorious power

@MercurialNight @beth_radley Hot blood cools
to aching wounds
and broken bones

Victory's cup aloft
we honour those who fell

We bury them


And toast their memories
In years to come
Around the hearths of our future
They shall be forever young

@Banquozghost @beth_radley


@MercurialNight @beth_radley

They had my back.
I knew them.
Each year, a cup,
I speak the names.
They died.
We lived on ..
I know not why.


Brothers they were
And still remain
We honour their bravery
As we remember their names

@Banquozghost @beth_radley


...Fragile glass bridges
Built on soft dreams
Reflected in hopeful eyes
Stretch across this wasteland
Denying our uncertain feeling

#MadVerse

...
In the silence of snow
Where invisible sight may not penetrate
Nor shed tears flow
Where all is pristine
No past to soil such purity

#NMCRP

...
Such simple white lies
He meant so well
Yet they cut as sharply
As deeply
As sweetly
As any knife
When the truth came to light

#DimpleVerse

...

To find a rainbow
We must go through some rain
It washes and cleanses
Sweeps away all the pain

...
Tracing each beloved contour
Memorising all that makes U U
I shall remember
Forevermore
A view of my life
When it included you

#ShapePoetry

...
My midnight wish
As I gaze at the stars
An unguarded secret
In this moment in time
Is that he shall return
& once more
Be mine

#Poem_Pocket

...
My midnight wish
As I gaze at the stars
An unguarded secret
In this moment in time
Is that he shall return

Be mine

#Poem_Pocket

...
An eternal companion
Patient
Forever there
Wherever we go
Forgiving
Knowing we'll return
A tranquil haven
Of mute serenity

@Banquozghost

...

Feet tap tapping
Ambience heady with JAZZ ZEST
Voices all SING SING SING
Smokes in LIGHT UP
REQUISITE STAMINA of all in roar

#DimpleVerse

...
Torn apart
Fate denied our love
As I watched U sail to sea
Yet here on the shore
In waiting
I shall watch
For the return of thee
#fieryverse

...
Carnal desires undenied
Insatiable appetites hunger to be appeased
Taking without hesitation
Casting aside lingering inhibitions

#DsubVerse

...

Charms of gold
Eyes of green
Her mystic sight
Truth or dream

Breaking fate
She cannot do
Fortunes are set
And beyond her view

#madVerse

...
Hurtling in wild confusion
Spinning out of control
Tumbling towards a destiny unknown
While colliding thoughts rage and boil

#fieryverse

...

Trust in yourself
If no one else
When faith is broken
It rends your world
Ruptures fragile bonds
Take two steps back
Breathe
#Rhythmic_Words

...
A new chapter beckons
Just within reach
My hope in dreams
A promise awaiting
Just a few unknown steps away
Beyond the rainbow

#PoemTrail

...
Ancestors watch
Whisper
Guide
In them we trust
By our side
Pierce the veil
Betwixt hidden worlds
Voodoo vixen mysteries
Unfurled

Beneath your touch
So tenderly offered
My heart blooms with love

Sensations
As if petals shaken free
Scatter upon my frame

#DimpleVerse

...
Emotions set free
Tumbling cascade
Tears concealed
Hidden within rain
Flowing silvered streams
Disguising my desperate pain

#writtenriver

...
Sirens of the sea
Seducing men to their doom
Tempted beyond insanity
They leap to their fate
& into your arms
For your vanity
#SenseWrds 212

...Did I not see the signs?
Was my wilful heart so blind?
In friendship's sweet warmth
My rival slipped in
The cut she gave unkind

#SableSwanV

...
Dipped in starlight
She dwelt in the heavens
Where the night sky
In slow revolution
Haloed about her brow
A moonlit glow

#writtenriver

...
Spinning her web
Fate weaves her spell
Threading time thru life's tapestry
She casts her net wide
Enshrouding all
Eclipsing caul

#madVerse

...
With courage plucked
& teeth clenched
They faced their destiny
Bore their fate
& with grim fortitude
They pulled thru
Survived

#fieryverse

...
Wait and see
Touch and feel
I am forever yours

#hangtenstories

...
From her ROOM WITH THE VIEW
On a LANGUID Summer's e'en
She gazes upon the world
A CASHMERE SHAWL to COCOON
& soft breezes FLOW
#DimpleVerse

...
Those hidden spaces
Of which no one tells
Behind locked doors
Where secrets do dwell
& passions soar high
In lascivious abandon

#DsubVerse

...

Scars he bore
In silent fortitude
Each a tale he'd never tell

A valiant warrior
Returned at last
Haunted by an inner hell

#SenseWrds 213

...
Just upon the horizon
Barely breaching the brow
Comes the slow creeping dawn
Of a shy Winter sunrise
To awaken a sleeping land

#ShapePoetry

...

Engulfed by sweet sensation
She surrendered with but a sigh

#tenwords

...

Swept under
Engulfed
She succumbed
Surrendered

#sixwords

...
I'd run so long
So hard
So fast
I'd forgotten who I was
My mind
Engulfed
My thoughts
In ricochet
I stopped
Turned
Faced my past
#DimpleVerse

...
In Stygian black
Looms a Dark Knight
Thrill me
Begs Gotham's rotting core
Hold me
Pleads souls long dead
Kiss me
Purrs a Catwoman
#Ashverse

...
In the sweet give n take of a secret desire
Cloaked in the depth of midnight's shade
We succumb to a lust filled moonlight madness
#madVerse

...
He was the rock upon which my loving foundation rested

#hangtenstories

...
It's a long way home when you're scared 2 face the past, the truth of what U did. But then again, the first step is the hardest
#ShapePoetry

...
The games people play
When the rules are known
The pain that flows
When they are not
We all roll the dice
And play our hand

#SableSwanV

...

Breathless
Poised on the edge
The beckoning abyss below

Don't look down
Trust in destiny
Is the next your last
Or the first

#SenseWrds 214

...
Vigilant upon a Wall
Jon SNOW watches
Over the STARK BEAUTY of all
While WINTER grips in a glacial fist
& death stalks the mist
#DimpleVerse

...
He came
He saw
He stole my heart

Made me smile
Made me laugh
And kept me safe once more

#microprompt #1vss

...
As long as you need me
Forever and a day
Until the end of time
Still there shall I be
A watchful guardian
An angel in your need

#VerseAngel

...
Change is good
They often say
I don't know why
Just seems that way

People come
People go
Always in motion
Ever in flow

#zealouswriter

...
Anchored in the past
She longed to be free
A dove set to flight
Released with a key
A gentle word
A tender touch
All a mystery
#writtenriver

...
In WINTER's STARK BEAUTY
Each silent SNOWflake
In gentle fall
Lays a crystal perfection
Upon a calm and chill lake

#DimpleVerse

...
Unexpected
He came
Unforeseen
I surrendered
Spellbound
To the words he invoked
& somewhere deep within
Something ancient awoke
#writtenriver

...

Chalk up my name
On the blackboard of death
Let the countdown at last begin
Fate has dealt her cards
For a game I cannot win

#DarkLines

...
Considering the headstone in silence, I whispered how did you die? My search now over, my brother found yet not as I remember
#zealouswriter

...
To what DARK PURPOSE
Did a FOOLISH SCENTED LETTER
& THORNY ROSE of red
Laid at my love's door
Hint at an extra marital TRESPASS

#zealouswriter

Deep within the heart
An ancient wisdom resides
Locked deep
A memory of times long past
That could be again
If we but knew the key
#madVerse

...
Unleashed upon the night's mercy
She was a vibrant living flame
To revel in such wanton decadence
Consumed in his salacious game
#DsubVerse

...
A lonely pilgrim
His blistered feet
Bloody footprints
Trailing a torturous path
In devout expression
Towards his saintly goal
#SenseWrds 215

...
Ghostly open the horizon
Sentinel spires watch o'er a silent land
A sharp rebuke visible to all
To warn against humanity's fall

#fieryverse

...
When tender buds burst to life
& Winter no more cuts like a knife
Then in vibrant hues
Shall Nature clothe her virgin self

#writtenriver

...
Exploding from her earthen cage
Nature fountains in liquid exultation
Cascading droplets
To celebrate in foamy profusion

#DimpleVerse

...
Cloaked in gentle velvet
Glittering stars grace the heavens
While far beneath
In the calm & quiet
I weave my secret dreams
#writtenriver 914

...

Strangers in the night
Neath shining stars
We met
Saw something in the other
Ephemeral
Raw
It captured us
Just for a moment

#SenseWrds 216

...

With just a gentle gossamer touch
Slowly stroking the length of an arching spine
I murmured my surrender
As he whispered my name
#DsubVerse

...


With a damsel's cry
A knight so bold
Swore his chivalrous vow
To rescue this maiden
As his dying king
Sought mystical salvation

#PoemTrail

...
A seductive lure
It calls 2 me
Whispers my name
With an offer 2 feed
Drawing me in
Bound by blood
Falling into your crimson abyss
#DarkLines

...
A lonely traveller upon the road
Searching 4 he knew not what
Unknowing the perfect pearl he sought
Always awaited him at home

#DimpleVerse

...
A bud in bloom
Warmed by the sun's love
She blossoms
Yet swift
Sudden
In jealous rage
The hoar frost
Cages her vibrant display

#ShapePoetry

...
398 #Ashverse

Beneath the unholy mountains
Where the sun paints red the barren earth
A haunting presence awaits
With a pitiless blank stare

...

Give me a reason
He prompted
Silken promise a subtle threat

And from the shadows
A flame flickered to life
As she confessed all

#DsubVerse

...
A dynasty fallen into ruin
Their velvet n steel rule
Destroyed
From their ashes so cruel
Ignites a firestorm
& a land won by fools
#madVerse

...
Tattered remnants
All that remain
Threadbare memories
Barely even a name
Lost in time
One by one
Shadows fading
'Til all R gone

#fieryverse

...
Perhaps you've heard
Maybe not
Rumours mischievously fly
No one can tell
What's right or wrong
Or even stop to ask why?

#VerseAngel

...
Drifting away
Untethered
She lay herself down
Amidst strewn lilies
Dusty petals
Falling
One by one
She whispered goodbye
And fell
#DarkLines

...

Let's take a walk
BEYOND THE PINES
2 where the river flows
Leave our TANGIBLE GHOSTs behind
2 the mercy of a MISTY CRYSTAL BALL
#DimpleVerse

...
I'm a slave to U
Yr scent
Yr touch
2 the madness that U bring

The rush of desire
The drenching passion
& everything in between

Silent stealth
Prowling the shadows
Patiently stalking his prey

Flowing like water
Through the trees
Before the dawning day

With an undimming light
She flourished in hope
Her belief in herself
Her world
Unflagging
A spirit so strong
To never B crushed

From passion's crimson shade
To desire's uninhibited noir
Each seduces the senses
Sheathes the mind

@BdWhizz

THE PROMISE sworn
He paused
His eyes upon THE CROSSING
PLAYING WITH FIRE
& humourless Fate
COMETH THE HOUR
Would she be here?

#DimpleVerse

Keep your eyes on me
On none other
I'll be what you desire
Give unto you
In carnal submission
That which you urgently need

#DsubVerse

I sense their eyes on me
Measuring
Devouring
Yearning to touch
Their straining desires leashed
Chained
Begging to be freed

#DsubVerse

Unravelling strands
One by one
Truth
Now a silent corpse
Dashed upon the floor
Time has run out
And so has your luck

Would he rescue me?
My loyal white knight
Who in the stormy tempest that is my life
Swore his ardent faith upon bended knee

Weaving in soulful rhythm
Notes lazily drift from the shore
To become lost in a swirling mist
That whispers "forevermore"

If you allow your feet
To follow the path
Neither faltering
Nor losing your way
Then in the end
Shall you find your way home

#ShapePoetry

...
Upon the crow of the cock
Shall dawning rays creep
To measure the passing of time
Upon these patient silent sentinels

#SenseWrds 220

Pure magic danced in the heavens
Weaving her spells along the way
While all below
In wondrous disbelief
We gazed & knelt 2 pray
#DimpleVerse

How shall a man's worth be measured?
In his words or by his deeds?
And shall your's be measured
Upon how you think to answer?

#SableSwanV

One Winter eve
A long time ago
When night fell too soon
Followed by snow
All was silent
As if waiting
Beneath the shining moon

#fieryverse

Wild uninhibited fire
Senses inflame
A conflagration of promise
Burning bright in my eyes
Desire sparks ablaze
As I lose control

#DsubVerse

Mute
Tho they've tongues 2 speak
Blind
Tho they've eyes 2 see
Indifferent
They only stand & watch
After all
What will be
Will be

#DarkLines

Amidst a plethora of lies, she stumbled upon one truth

#hangtenstories

...
When his world crushed down
A burden he could accept no more
She came
The tinder to his spark
An ember that sprung forth
To lighten the dark

...
To fife and drum
Onward they marched
Rebel gray
Union blue
Bitter depths
Brothers in blood
Taking a side
Now brothers in feud

#TastyPoem

...

He was the bitter pill
The stone in my shoe
The storm cloud on my horizon
And whatever the cost
I'd just have to pull through

#SableSwanV

...
Prayers
Softly whispered
Beside candles
Warmly aglow
Illuminating the corners
Where shadows will not go

#VerseAngel

...
Touch me here
If U dare
Brand your name
Say a prayer
Drown my senses
Flood my mind
Deliver my dreams
Tangled up
Forever entwined

#DsubVerse

...

All four seasons
Rolled into one
The essence of you
Is Summers warmth
Winters ice
Autumns glow
And Springs refreshing birth

#DimpleVerse

...
Unwilling to face the truth, she didn't ask the question

#hangtenstories

Chaos reigns
Rage burns
A 1,000 throats scream as one
Frantic eyes
In hopeful search
Entreat the gods
"halt what has begun"

#SenseWrds 221

...

Sorrow came in waves
Each a ravaging blow
Tearing at my defences
Breaking down my walls
Immersing my soul
Quenching my flame

#TastyPoem

...

Did I take you for granted?
Thinking always you would be there
A faithful voice at my side
Now an empty space
A dream squandered
#fieryverse

Mystical veil
Oh part for me
Allow my eyes
Your secrets to see
Mysterious lover
In soft moonlight
Goddess I beg you
Hear my plight

Splintered fragments
Forever shattered
Fractured shards
Scattered dreams
Crumbling ruins
Lives once lived
Dust upon the wind

Anticipating a spotlight's kiss
Waiting never felt so long
To gather her courage
Slip from the shadows
& Lose herself in a song

Pacing steps
Bitten nails
Calming breaths
Patience waning
Waiting's over

Friend to none
Stranger to many
The Wanderer was his name

A student of life
He listened
Learned

Alone
Yet unafraid
Her faith
An armour she wore
Her belief
A weapon she bore
Fire would be her reward
For bearing France's sword

Velvet heavens
Adorned in starry ropes of pearls
Bewitching moon thrilled minds
Unleashed desires bound free
This kiss
A madness

#madVerse

Creeping mist
Ethereal veil
Silent figures
A slow rising dawn

Ghostly silhouettes
In somber attire
Lost in memories
Of a love
Now expired

...
As if from afar
I watched myself
Heard the words I spoke
Their emotional depth
I was my own ghost
The conscience I denied

#SenseWrds 223

Her veiled gaze radiating secrets
Bewitching lusting voyeurs
A flick of a wrist
Twitch of curvaceous hips
& they hungered 4 more

#DsubVerse

He was a comet
Soaring across the heavens
She was a star
Struck by moonbeams
Together they dazzled
Outshining the jealous sun
#IntrigueVerse

Sunshine hues
Scattering gems
She laid a vibrant trail
In radiant streams
& beneath her Midas touch
We each followed our dreams
#DimpleVerse

...

Would he come?
Could she wait?
Tortured by a ticking clock
It's harsh condemning face
Slow lecturing hands
In weary disapproval
#CarnalVerse

Bonds of love severed
Farewell my friend
Guardian of dreams
May the soul of the wolf
Be heard in the nightsong
When a heart breaks

Born of nightmares
Nurtured hell
A mind warped in terror
Too scared 2 tell

Shadows twist
Slip n slide
Creeping closer
Run n hide

Every day
A little harder
Each task
A little longer
My steps
A little slower
My energy
Failing
Where did I go?
The woman I was

#fieryverse

Virgin territory
Awaiting discovery
Steamy sensuality
Curious eyes
Slumberous with desire
Watch U explore
As anticipation builds

#DsubVerse

...
Silent tormentors in the night
They come to steal my peace
My restless conscience
Battle weary
Surrenders without a fight

#SenseWrds 224

In finding myself
I lost sight of U
I turned a corner
& you slipped away
Leaving a space
So silent & empty
I miss you
Every day

Tug on that thread
Gently unravel my world
Tumble my thoughts
In slow chaotic confusion

Years slip away
Seasons turn
And the World passes slowly by

Yet here we stand
Side by side
To face what comes
Simply you and I

#VerseAngel

Aching sorrow
Twists and writhes
As a serpent slithering
Choking my heart
Those wistful memories
Of a time before
Haunting me

A southern belle
She ruled them all
Uncrushed by war
She forged her path
Her steely resolve
The armour
Relentlessly she wore

Fierce denial came easily
I wouldn't
I couldn't
I'd come so far
I knew it was wrong
My conscience pricked
Behind me only fear
#VerseReversal

The day you came
When the sun rose high
Shedding light & warmth
Into my darkest corners
That wonderful perfect day

#elixirpoetry

Our passion burned too hot
Our conflagration unstoppable
In a pyre of hungry desire
& all that is left?
This warming afterglow

#DimpleVerse

When the music takes hold
I let myself go
Surrendering
Throw myself into the stream
And float where the rhythm bears me

#TastyPoem

Fate brought us here
But which to go?
The path so easy
Where roses bloom?
Or the way strewn with thorns?
Laden with doom

#SenseWrds 226

In the dead of night
When all is laid bare
Then shall the soul of Man be weighed
And a full reckoning be accounted

In one night
Driven by demons

Answer to a prayer I never sought
A path leading to my damnation

There shall we linger upon the stairs
And whisper our love
To the silent stones

A lost lonely road
Unknown 2 many
But those without souls
An abandoned waif
Easy prey
In sheer disbelief
They watched her come

Inscribe your name upon my heart
Hot crimson promise in blood
A serpent writhes in demonic need
Upon our dark magic
It must feed

A yearning abyss on either side
Seductively whispers my name
Luring me closer 2 my fall

I'm lost in thrall

A ravenous beast
Devouring all
He hunts within the shadows
Prowling the maze that is my mind
He waits and bides his time

A slave to its silent command
This tyrant that owns my time
Every second that once was my own
Now owned by this cold dictator

Poised upon a path
I've never gone down before
Aching to take that step
Just one foot in front of the other
Into the unknown

Release what is in you
Set your inner spirit free
That longs to sing
Dance and paint
Embrace the passion
For only you are the key

A haven from the hellish storm

Wordlessly pleading succour

A timeless classic that still looked good

Soft promises barely heard
Whispered upon yearning flesh
His tender lips worshipped
And devious tongue lapped
As honey flowed

Is this how it would be?
One cold morning bleeding into the next
Without your warm body beside me
This ice creeps slowly forward

Down 2 the sea
Shall we 1 day go
2 glide upon gilded shores
Our steps in passing leaving shadows
Swept away on an incoming tide

Locked within imaginary walls
Silence screamed in jubilation
A chaotic serenade to my fall

Silence fell like a shroud
The very air held its breath
As if in watchful anticipation
Of the predator prowling
From the mist

Shimmering starlight
To grace the heavens
& angels in their flight

@SimplyProx

...
With GALLOPING heart
I turn to face
In STEADFAST determination
Yet FRAGILE in STRENGTH
A NEVER ENDING storm
That howls my name

#DimpleVerse

...

Rumours spill like wine
Poured by an intoxicated hand
To poison the most innocent mind
Seeping whispers that cannot B stemmed
#IntrigueVerse

...
Enthralled
I swayed
Held by her vulpine gaze

She beckoned
I followed
Her bite felt but a graze

& thus unto hell I succumbed

#DarkLines

...
Never forget
My darling son
The steps U took
How far you've come

U R my pride
My joy so true
With U in spirit
To watch over U

#VerseAngel

...

As twilight falls
& years sink unseen
When I'm left behind
To walk alone
''Tis the future I fear
When all are gone
& I am unknown

#madVerse

...
Excited anticipation
Heart beat racing
I hear your steps
Exhilaration
So much 2 say
Mouth so dry
Take a breath
My wedding day
#SenseWrds 237

...
DEAR DARLING
Where do I begin?
Has been 2 long
My SWEET AGONY
In waiting over
& AT LONG LAST
Our HEART 2 HEART
Secrets shared

#DimpleVerse

...
In seeking REDEMPTION
He sought forgiveness
Fearing the very HEAT of Hell
Performing TRANSCENDENT acts
With a focussed PRECISION

#PoemTrail

...
Silence is golden
Precious and rare
Be miserly with words
Make them rare

#HeartWords

...
In quivering silence
Heavy with desire
Our tongues met
Conversing without words
What we dared not speak
Our lips did vow

#DsubVerse

...
One more whisky
On one more night
Then I'd call it quits
His was a memory
I couldn't forget
His touch
His taste
A dark addiction

#madVerse

...

Twenty lucky leprechauns
Gyrating in emerald profusion
Sprinkling stardust and shamrocks
In uninhibited effusion

#SenseWrds 238

...

Alliances made
Sealed in blood
We take the field
We man the wall
To face the foe
In fearsome warpaint daubed
To make our stand

In the chill night air
I feel your breath
From the oily shadows
I feel your gaze
A nightmare walking
You haunt  my mind

@Banquozghost

...
Night incarnate
He comes
Drawn to my still beating heart

Darkness enfolds
An icy shroud
In succumbing
I whisper
"come to me"

@Banquozghost
..
A tender reed
Bent by life's tribulations
Yet blessed by Heaven
In their guiding light
Would she find her path
Unto sainthood
#SenseWrds 239

...
A puzzle unsolved
She mystified
Obscurity as her shield
Secrecy the armour she wore
A silent enigma
She walked the night

#IntrigueVerse

...
Whether swallowed whole
Or in bits and pieces
He spun his tales
Wild and fantastical
Enchanting imaginations
Far and wide

#SableSwanV

...
From dreamlike sleep
Awakening to the dawn
The reality I couldn't see
The pain I couldn't feel
All has changed
Emotion set free
#ShapePoetry

...
Love did dwell within her heart
B4 the veil of fantasy was torn
Her wild spirit
With passion intertwined
By time
She was betrayed
#heartwrds

...

Legends are born
Reputations glorified
Ordinary men
In extraordinary times

#hangtenstories

...
She wore a smile like a loaded gun
While her eyes dared you to pull the trigger
A challenge issued
The gauntlet thrown down

#madVerse

...
NOCTURNAL planets
In heavenly alignment
Move in a silent MUSICal ballet
PEARLESCENT
They glide
Ever in motion
About a DARK SUN
#DimpleVerse

...
Tantalise dormant senses
Bring me achingly to life
In the darkest hours
Of a long lonely night
Brand my soul
& talk dirty to me

#DsubVerse

...
Slow sensuous sensation
Wraps my mind in rapture
Clouding inhibitions
I fall into soft oblivion
With yr name
A taste upon my lips
#TastyPoem

...
Dressed for death
In killer heels
She prowled the night
Draped in mourning
A widow in the making
& in search of a casket

#DarkLines

...

An empty vessel without anchor
Set adrift upon a lonely sea
To roam where currents command
Til this missing part of me is found

#SableSwanV

...

TOUCHED BY WORDS
So warm & loving
BeLOVED IMMORTAL
Ive adored you so long
My heart KISSED BY POETRY
Beats for you thru eternity
#DimpleVerse

...

Taste me here
Beneath the stars
Caress my senses
Take what's yours
The moon above
A silent witness
Gazes down
Devour my sweetness
#DsubVerse

...
Slipping from shadows
A wraith in silver
Seeking a place of light
Where she may bask
Beneath the sun
& leave behind the night

#writtenriver

...
Sachet secreted within a drawer
Mysterious scent lingers on
Tantalising memory of a windswept moor
Where U live on 4evermore

#SenseWrds 240

...
Wretched creature
Who prowls my mind
Stealing my dreams
In jealous rage
With spiked taunts
In writhing poison
To pierce my soul

#darklines

...
Wreak your vengeance
Take your prize
But you'll never destroy us
Or this life you despise
Love will live on
And love will survive

#MadVerse

...
Be still my soul
For peace is at hand
In the sigh of the wind
Warm sun upon my hand
Here I can rest
My journey at last done

#MadVerse

...
With wicked design
Imperious command
He drew my yearning heart
As no other
Wrapping it in tender words
Captured within his web
#DimpleVerse

I looked back once
And you were there
I looked again
And you were gone
Were you real
Or just a dream
A desire conjured to life

#SableSwanV

....
His touch
Bittersweet
After all these years
Reminiscent of memories
2 many betrayed
Left 2 fade
Yet here we stand
Face 2 face
#IntrigueVerse

...
A vital thread in the tapestry of life
A sweet love rhythm that does not cease
We are each connected
One unto the other

#BeautifulMess

...
An angel at dawn
A temptress at dusk
She aches to be free
Ride this whip of lust
Awaiting his touch
And the key in the lock

#CarnalVerse

...
Laughter rode the screaming wind
Valkyries demons on the hunt

#hangtenstories

...
Between sanity & madness
The crimson & the black
Mystery lies in wait
Where wild imaginings roam
Lost in a world that doesnt exist
#madVerse

...
CONFINED within this MELTING pot
Where TOXIC SMOKE does swirl
Bitter CHOCOLATE thickens
To tempt a demonic palate

#DimpleVerse

...

Cascading memories
Vengeance in waterfall
Shades of red
Weeping veins
Spill their anguish
Outpouring rage
Upon a pristine shroud
#DarkLines

...

Ice & fire
Frost & fury
Ride the desolation
Lost beyond the wall
Where winter winds
Slice to the bone
& snow does silently fall

#PoemTrail

...

Let our imagination be our compass
The bed we lay on our vessel
As we roam the universe
And sail upon oceans of stars

#AMSPC

...

Upon a restless wind
An echo within the storm
Came a single word
Resounding with thunderous clamour
Heard by those who listened

#SableSwanV

...
A candle set alight
A flame burning bright
His ardour bathed me in heat
His desire drowned me in lust
A passion unsatiated
 
#IntrigueVerse

...
WINGS OF PRAYER
Wafting heavenward
Yet will the CENTRE OF THE UNIVERSE listen?
With pleading eyes
WINDOWS of the soul
We wait..
#DimpleVerse


...
Subtle judgements
Brought to life
Brittle suspicions
Like poison spread
Now betrayed
Condemning myself
In damning confession

#SenseWrds 243

L..

Let us dream of what may be
Whisper secrets to the breeze
Here among the meadow flowers
& build a castle upon our sweet wishes
#writtenriver

...
Fiercely proud
Facing the might of Rome
She would bow to none
Her fate written in blood
She stood fast
Her destiny her own

#madVerse

...
Heady scents to drench addicted senses
Sensual aromas inflaming hidden hungers
Burgeoning to enslave the lusts of Man

#IntrigueVerse

...
Dusty petals
In wild profusion
Carpet her tomb
Where far below
Beyond the touch of man
She rests
A heart of flower now at peace

#DarkLines


...
A gentle balm upon silken cheeks
To wash away endless pain
What Hell does bestow
Shall Heaven restore
& she likes the rain

#beautifulMess

...
Once upon a moonless night
When U slipped from view
Out of sight
I heard yr cry
Upon a breeze
I'm sure I did
& fell 2 my knees

#SableSwanV

...
Control was her weapon
Silence her shield
In the midst of the storm
As madness ran wild
She stood on her own
Refusing to yield

#madVerse

...

She's a DELICATE mix
Of SATIN AND LACE
A blossoming rose
SOFT PETALS to touch
The strength of her father
& Her mother's grace

#DimpleVerse

...
No man's an island
No 1 stands alone
Our lives R interwoven
One 2 the other
Thru the years
A tapestry
Rich in colour
Appears
#IntrigueVerse

...
Though Fate may play a wicked trick
Into an abyss are we thrown
Let us not lose hope
Fade from the light
No evil shall we speak

#DarkLines


...
Set free your inner BLUE BIRD of happiness
Don't leave her CAGED & yearning
DREAMING OF FLYING & soaring
As high as your hopes

#DimpleVerse

...
A tender bud in yearning bloom
Awakening at the 1st kiss of a loving sun
2 bedazzle a waiting world
As Winter turns to Spring
#SenseWrds 245

...
Her ravaged facade
Crumbling to dust
Conceals a carrion heart
Where murder lurks
In shadows deep
Within this house of crows

#DarkLines

...
Seduced by shimmering GREEN EYES
Limpid POOLs of wistful LONGING
LINES between wishes & dreams
BLURRED in my aching purgatory

#DimpleVerse

...

Lost forever
Yet never sought
I am the cry in the dark
The nightmare never ending
Haunting your mind
& those dark secrets within

#madVerse

...
A marble goddess
Upon a pedestal
She stands
Forever out of reach
But not to birds
That perch & sing
Upon her pristine frame

Lay me down
Amidst blooming meadows
Where summer breezes
And heady scents
May tear me away
Make me forget
All I left behind

#DimpleVerse

...
A fantasy walking
Brought to life
She trailed men's eyes
In bewitching guise

#SenseWrds 247

...
I was a land
Virgin untouched
He was my conqueror
Demanding submission
My total surrender
He was my ruin
But I could not weep

#SableSwanV

...
As the heavens danced in jubilation
Showering stars sparkled ever brighter
& comets chased in celebration
Across a night sky

#VerseReversal

...
Bathed in starlight
Beneath a waxing moon
To her knees
She fell
Beseeching gaze
To the cool Selene
Upon her lips
Soft prayers

#ShapePoetry

...
From this cauldron of melancholy
Stir me to life
To drink once more from the cup of good fortune
Taste the fruits of success
#writtenriver

...
What mercy this?
When offered at the point of a sword
A lonely witness to my world in flames
A pilgrim wretchedly left wandering

#HeartWrds

...

Empty rooms
Without soul
Or purpose
He walks a lonely path
Disdaining all yet none
A misanthrope untouched
And without need

#IntrigueVerse

...
With a salacious touch
He is the voyager
Set forth upon his quest
2 capture my heart
Take what is his
Explore & consume
All of me
#DsubVerse

...
Dreams set in flight
Ethereal wisps of what could be
If we but had the courage
2 linger on the horizon
Temptingly within reach

#DimpleVerse

...
From a MIASMAL MIST
Thick with portent
A BACKWATER MELODY
Floats upon the air
Rich with LONELY YEARNINGS
& tragic BAYOU BLUES

#PoemTrail 78

...
Down among the dead men
Those fallen B4 their time
Where monster hearts beat fierce
& Blood runs hot & wild
Howling for release

#DarkLines

...
A hot July night
In the sultry bayou
When the air is thick
Like warm molasses
And blood runs hot
As desire rises
Beneath a lush full moon
🔥

...
When the heat becomes too much
& blood flows hot with desire
Drench my senses
In your touch
Your scent
As I begin to perspire
#IntrigueVerse

...
If under a sky
As black as this
We shall meet again

When time has worn ragged
Wrath's fearful edge
Then let it be as friends

#SableSwanV

...
Some whispered
Some stared
Some turned away
But none could ignore
Sweet Cinnamon Gray
With bewitching eyes
& a smile 2 bespell
#writtenriver

...
Run my friend
Run fast
Run far
Yet with every mile
Death still waits
Fate cannot be outrun
Cannot be cheated
Accept your dark end
#DarkLines

...
Look once
Then once again
Can it be?
Conjured by grief
Or longed for reality
A blessed mirage
& hopeful dreams
He returns to me
#ShapePoetry

..
Rising from the seductive arms of Morpheus
A kiss blown to the magnificent Apollo
Already ablaze in furious magnificence

#SenseWrds 249


...
Sleepy eyed
To bed he goes
Soft kisses aplenty
Upon his brows
With dragging feet
Upstairs to dream
Of puppy dogs
& ice cream

#SenseWrds 250

...
Whisper
Rumour
Tales abound
Mysterious
Apocryphal
All unfound
Whether U believe
It matters not
When all is done
Accept Ur lot
#IntrigueVerse

...
Once upon a MOONLIT BOULEVARD
Lost in a SEPIA DREAM
Beneath a VELVET sky
When VINTAGE Hollywood stardust
Burst in SENSUAL bliss
#DimpleVerse

...

She herself was a haunted house
Where the ghosts of her dreams still swarmed
Yet no exorcism would lay these demons to rest

#madVerse

...
KISMET'S ROAD led us here
Thru APPLE ORCHARDS
& IDYLLIC LAVENDER FIELDS
Where senses awaken
Amidst aromatic wonderlands

#DimpleVerse

...
U run
U hide
Yet still they're there
Everybody's got their demons
Some scream aloud
Some not so much
But we're all still fighting

#madVerse

...
Six feet under
Did you think yourself safe?
Lost from sight
Entwined in sylvan embrace
She comes just 4 U
Mother Natures revenge

#DarkLines

...
My release
Was your captivity
With every word
Each caressing touch
My bonds wrapped tighter
You were mine
Long before you knew it

ONCE UPON A TIME
A maiden came soft
Her heart LOVE STUNG
2 sit within a FORGOTTEN GARDEN
Her tale a haunted MELODY on her lips

#DimpleVerse
...

What I try to hide
The mirror throws back
In somber reflection
Of the demon I am
Lips speak the truth
Even as blind eyes turn away
#DSpoetry

...
Secrets revealed in a perfumed letter
Of passions unrequited
A love unfulfilled
Of a heart torn wide
Emotions spilling forth

#DimpleVerse

...
Strewn dusty petals
Abandoned memories
Wilting pink roses
Fading beauty
Haunting whispers of a life passed
But not forgotten

#writtenriver

...
Wistful longing
For the unattainable
Haunt her somber gaze
Words spilled
In lamenting cascade
A prayer 4 what could never B

#SenseWrds 253

...
With more curves than Monte Carlo
She's a carnal dream come to life
Leading men on a spiralling fall
Hips in hypnotic sway

#CarnalVerse 111

...
Dancing in the midst of a whirlwind
Or laughing in the face of a thunderstorm
It's always a wild ride on love's rollercoaster

#madVerse

...
Kisses like honey
Sweetly licked upon my skin
Words of seduction
Whispered in my ear
With a touch slow n easy
Gentle as a prayer

#dSubverse

...

As time slips by
Measured
Unrepentant
What mattered today
Is forgotten tomorrow
Without memory
Or conscience
We must move on

#IntrigueVerse

...
Stygian depths drawing you down
Within Death's Black is the beckoning hand
The summons no man can deny
As time expires
So shall U
#DarkLines

...
Losing control
Was my biggest regret
As was losing you

What can I say?
What can I do?
The ties that did bind
Simply snapped

#BeautizmLove

...
Lay me down among the reeds
Where still waters gently lap
Until I am dragged away
Borne upon the sweeping flow
To where I know not
#madVerse
...
Serengeti shades
Golds seeping to bronze
Then to beautiful red
Each a symphony in colour
A serenade for bewitching sight

#writtenriver
...

Dawn awakens her glorious symphony
In harmonious vibrant hues
And the sweet chorus of birdsong
Melodiously fills the air

#SableSwanV

...
With trembling lips
Heart aquiver
She knelt by his side
Felt him shiver
A knight unhorsed
She held him close
Whispered "forever"
#VerseAngel

...
Such DELICIOUS TORTURE inflicted
'Twas INEVITABLE from the start
This FORBIDDEN addiction
TOUCH AND GO that I could ever resist
#DimpleVerse

...
Sly whispers in the dark
Envious rumours taking root
Absinthe sprites ply their wiles
In wicked seduction
Upon a drowning mind
#writtenriver
...

Thunderous cannons fall silent
As murderous crows encircle
The flower of chivalry lay to rest
Their breath the final gasps of war
#DarkLines

...
He came to me
One innocent night
When the moon was full
Stars so bright
Invading every sense & pore
Wove his seduction to my core
#DsubVerse
...

One to ignite
The other extinguish
One to consume
The other to nourish
Which were we?
Would we burn brightly
Or drown in the flood
#madVerse

...

Silent wraiths
Haunting witness
Gilded in serene starlight
Angelic sentinels
Set to watch
And guide lost souls to their rest

#SenseWrds 255

...
With confidence excelling
He took my calm world
Organised
Controlled
With but a single touch
Spun it into chaos
& stole my heart

#madVerse

...
What goes around
Comes around
Or so the saying goes
The encompassing circle
We're doomed to walk
Until we meet ourselves again
#writtenriver

...
Like a meteor
Shining gloriously
He blazed a gilded path
For but a moment in time
He was ours
Before the heavens
Drew him home

#ShapePoetry

...
Abuse my heart
Disown my trust
Cast me aside
Do what you must

But never forget
I know you well
Your every secret
I will tell

#VerseAngel

Come
Cross with me
These waters flowing
To the other side
Amidst green grass growing
And here may we sit
In sylvan peace

#DimpleVerse

Bathed in starlight
Neath a velvet sky
A silent sentinel stands
Dust motes float
Swept by unseen hands
2 rest upon forgotten tombs
#madVerse

...
Had you heeded my first warning
Taken note of what I said
You'd not now be resting
Where waters run so deep
Cold
Still
...Dead

#ShapePoetry

...
Fiery sensations exploding upon taste buds
As widening eyes slowly gather tears
& breaths expel in volcanic jubilation

#TastyPoem

...
Upon her knees in humble piety
She prays for what is soon to come
Gentle eyes in supplication
Seeking a touch of divine grace

#madVerse

...
With but a single touch
I felt his presence
His heat upon my back
No words were spoken
None needed
& as mist
My fears evaporated
#SableSwanV

...
Stumbling MISSTEPs led me here
MISGUIDED by MISCHIEF making foes
Each MYSTIFYING MYSTICAL MISHAP
Dupes me 2 my unfortunate fate
#DimpleVerse

...
Razor sharp tongue
Each word cutting deep
She lacerated with pleasure
Flaying senses without inhibition
Passion a carnal creep

#CarnalVerse

...
Upon the waning of the day
When all who must
Hide away
Come seek me out
& upon a windswept headland
There shall we meet our fate

#madVerse

...
Strong
Silent
A masterful touch

He crushed my inhibitions
Took what I gave
Perhaps 2 much

Don't be gentle
My passionate plea

#DsubVerse

...

Alas poor Demeter
Broken hearted
2 roam the Earth
Harsh mournful cries
A daughter lost
Stolen from sight
Never to be returned
#SenseWrds 256

...
A tumbleweed spirit
Blown by the mercurial breeze
A rambling rose
Without decision or direction
A vagabond soul
So free & so wild

#madVerse

...
Uncertain wraiths drift
Tethered by ephemeral ties
They crowd in hallowed haunting
Awaiting the judgement of their passing

#DarkLines

...
Come seek me NEAR THE CLIFF
Just beyond the BRAMBLE MAZE
Where you can set free your INNER STORM
Your anxious fears WAYLAID

#DimpleVerse

...

Loose the ties that bind us to Earth
Shake free the shackles that bind
Let us soar in spirit's balloon
Wherever life may blow us
#VerseAngel

...
"Let it ride"
He rasped in whisky dark tones
"It'll fall where it falls"
His world that roulette wheel
He let Fate take his soul

#madVerse

....

Draped in shamrocks
An unfortunate rabbit's foot
Curving his neck
A weighty horseshoe
He sat
Feeling lucky
& played his hand

#madVerse

...

Each word
A devastating thrust 2 the heart
Her soul spilled forth
Her gaze a liquid shimmer
Caught withina moonbeam
B4 she turned
#TastyPoem

...

With just a glance
A touch
A gentle word
You drew me down
In spiralling submission
Became my epicentre
Til what is left of me?

#DimpleVerse

...
With masterful precision
Each stroke a liquid sigh
Teasing my yearning flesh
Yet still the sting lingers
Such salacious addiction
#DsubVerse

...
Fragile traces are all we leave
Scattered fragments cast upon a wayward wind
Memories fading as the years march on

#SenseWrds 258

...

A tale unfinished
She stands
Black tears fountaining
Drowning the land around
In shades of mourning
For all that was
& could be

#DarkLines

...

Mother Nature's glory
Crowned in golden tribute
Heaven's treasured gift
A burnished lustre bestowed
To awe the admiring watcher
#DimpleVerse

...
Rise and fall
Come and go
Fate plies her trade
Neither friend nor foe

We wait
We pray
That we may live
For just another day

#madVerse

...
A second may last a lifetime
Yet a year be gone in an instant
Paradise just ever out of reach
Or just a breath away

#madVerse

...
Unheeding the warnings
The many signs we ignored
Swallowed by the darkness
We tumbled into the abyss
Blind to the consequence
#IntrigueVerse

...
A banner of living flame
Caught by the sun
In tangled hues of red

#madVerse

...

No matter how hard
Nor how long
No amount of scrubbing
Til the water turned red
Wld cleanse this blood
From her guilty hands

#sensewrds 259

...
Stripped bare
Of my own volition
What I offered
U took
Rewarding me well
For the gift I gave
A craving so deep
& a dark addiction
#DsubVerse
...

The throbbing pulse of a city at night
An unceasing rhythm to stir the blood
& nameless faces fall in & out of lust

#CarnalVerse 113

...

Abandoned alabaster beauty
Yet still she waits
As the years fall away
& time moves on
She whispers her love
Tho he is gone

#CarnalVerse 113

....
What punishment this?
To be cast down
Unto the abyss
Where lost souls dwell
Within the lonely depths
Consumed by melancholy

#SableSwanV

...
Meandering amidst a BLUEBELL FOREST
Dreaming of painting words upon my POET'S CANVAS
FIELDS OF HOPE blooming within my heart

#DimpleVerse

...
Forbidden attraction
Undeniable seduction
Two souls without inhibition
Craving the other
Undeniably tempted
By your touch branded
#DsubVerse

...
Memories intangible
All I leave behind
As footprints fade into the distance
I'm lost from view
As if I never was
Nor will be

#DimpleVerse

...
Malevolent whispers permeate the crucible of my mind
Slipping as wraiths where no other could follow
Poisonous weeds to take root and grow

....
That you would be faithfully mine forevermore
The most beautiful lie you ever told
And as my heart tore apart
I smiled to remember
#madVerse

...
Borne aloft upon desire's dark wings
Riding the currents of carnal seduction
As we tumble n roll in sensual rhythm
To fall as one

#madVerse

...
Borne aloft upon desire's dark wings
Riding the currents of carnal seduction
As we tumble n roll in sensual rhythm
To fall as one

#madVerse

....
He lunged
I parried
He thrust
I dodged
He made a move
I countered with another
This ballet of death
An assassin's choreography

#VerseAngel

...
Your tongue the living flame
Your gaze the burning torch
Come leave your mark
Where all may see
& covetous eyes may turn away

#DsubVerse

...
We breathe
We live
From 1 day
2 the next
& live in hope
That one day
May be that one
When 2 hearts
By chance
Collide
Coalesce

This endless silence
Locked within shadows
Beyond ethereal mourning veils
A parody of death
Where empty souls yet yearn for light
#DarkLines

...
When Summer blooms have faded upon the vine
& Winter snows have in stealth come
Shalt thou still yearn for me
As I yearn for U

#DimpleVerse

...
Shimmering pools of mossy hue
Beseech a tormented heart
What lonely depths are here concealed
That do threaten to tear us apart
#SableSwanV

...
Her heart cried rescue me
Though her eyes did betray
At war with herself
She fought in desperation
Surrendering with a cry

#ShapePoetry

...
Between the ice and the fire
The storm and the calm
Where two extremes brush
Yet never do merge
Lies a path strewn in ashes

#SenseWrds 272

...
Innocence beyond the veil
Layer by layer
Exposed & revealed
As day turns 2 night
Before him she stood
& drew back her shields
#IntrigueVerse

...
The MYSTIFYING revealed
B4 my wide-eyed gaze
His MESMERISING voice
Whispering commands
MAGNIFYING my uneasy desire
To succumb

#DimpleVerse

...
Tho storms do rage
& thunderous waves splash
Within the safe haven
Warm harbour
Of your embrace
Shall I find my sweet sanctuary

#PoemPeriod

...
Shackled by addictive desire
My wrists in ropes of carnal design
Drugged by your salacious touch
Tasting your breath upon my lips
#DsubVerse

...
Secret assignations where eyes cannot see
Mysterious messages sharp ears cannot hear
Each tryst a feast of breathless anticipation
#madVerse

...
Bathed in shadow
Beyond all reason
We sink neath the swell

Drowned by desire
We shun the world
Encaged in our carnal own

#CarnalVerse 114

...
When your path is blocked and overgrown
Worries upon fears building in cadence
Then shall you seek another way
A better way

#SableSwanV

...
Lashed by the storms of life
Blown by nefarious winds
2 ride the peaking swells
While tied 2 hope's mast
Seeking a safe haven

#VerseAngel

...
As darkness sheds its mournful cloak
To don the misty veils of a dawning day
A bittersweet transition until dusk shall come again
#madVerse

...
Tempting appetites long denied
A SENSUAL FEAST laid bare
Our hungry needs met
As tongues collide
In a crimson DANCE OF WORDS

#DimpleVerse

...
Mother Nature's artistic wonderment
Dawn's creeping explosion upon an awakening land
In yawning sleepiness
We rise n shine

#SenseWrds 263

...
Screaming faces
Mad as Alice
Tumble n roll
Amidst secrets n lies
Dragging emotions
Forgotten baggage
Unto the abyss
Waiting below
#DarkLines

...
They wait
They watch
Biding their time
4 that 1 moment
Blink of an eye
Patience rewarded
When U shall be theirs
Live or die

#IntrigueVerse

...
As somber DUSK LIGHT falls
Amber fading thru bronze
A FLIGHT OF ANGELS in escort
Heralds her MEMORY eternally

#DimpleVerse
#DusklightAngels

...
Sunshine yellow
Amidst virgin white
Symbol of purity
Virtuous beauty
Fates do weave a daisy chain
& crown her brow in innocence

#VerseAngel

...
Wherein the Garden of Man's first steps
Grows sweet temptation aplenty
This desirable fruit
Luscious
Ripe
Betrayer of Man's fall

#dsubverse

...
A velvet sky welcomes another star
And mournful hearts
With a quiet yearning
Do remember a gentle soul's passing

#madVerse
#DuskLightAngels

...
Unquenchable thirst
Hungry need
Overwhelming desire
Insatiable appetite
Yearning addiction
To feast upon Eros' desirable fruit

#dsubverse

...
As years flowed
1 unto the next
She was as a moth
Captured
Beating her wings in futile yearning
Until suffocated
By disappointment
She died

...
Hidden from sight
A secret none would share
Existing between the void
Tortured by memories
Of what cld never B
He masked his pain
#DarkLines

...
Ride the wild desert wind
A spirit soaring free
Screaming her freedom to the skies
As she left her worries far behind

#TastyPoem

...
My gaze focussed upon some distant horizon
Blind 2 storm clouds gathering above
Taken suddenly unawares
Drowning B4 I could run
#DimpleVerse

...
Byond the path
Where shadows dwell
There shall U find me
If U but look
Where nettles grow
In wicked profusion
There shall I B
#BeautifulMess

...
Delicate lace
Grace divine
She walks in pools of light
As bells do chime
& hymns R sung
She begins anew
Upon a life so bright
#Sensewrds 264

...
Wicked webs in which we weave
Desires & dreams so base
Entangled before we even know
The trouble spun
& nightmares released

#IntrigueVerse

...
There amidst the meadows sweet
Where blossoms dance upon a Summer breeze
There shall we sit
Tendered by dutiful humming bees

#PoemPeriod

...
A carnal dream
Brought to life
She dances within his mind
Saturating his nights
A fever in his blood
An addiction he can't deny
#CarnalVerse

...
Come whisper 2 me
Of carnal longing
This deep burning need
Those lips that drip honey
Teasing
Tormenting
Consuming my errant will
#DsubVerse

...
Beneath velvet stars
Kneeling B4 her BEWITCHING LURE
I dearly pray, Selene
Yr cool smile a PROVOKING PROMISE
Hear my STRAY WISH

Summer sun and sunshine smiles
Bursting radiance amidst wildflower meadows
Serenaded by the humming bees
Dancing attendance

#writtenriver

...

With heads bowed
Eyes cast down
We prayed for salvation

While high on high
They heard our prayers
& delivered harsh damnation

#DarkLines

...
This unbreakable thread
That binds our thoughts
Our hearts & minds
Our very souls
'Tis truth undeniable
If U R cut
I shall bleed

#MadVerse
...
Wrap me closer
Ever tighter
Stoke the fire
Fan the flames
Watch them burn higher

#MadVerse

...
A guilty mind
Disoriented
Screaming accusations
One by one
In staccato tones
That cut
To the heart
And to my the very soul

#SableSwanV
...

Let us dive so deep
Unto the obsidian ocean
Where dreams and fears
Light and dark
Ebb and flow
As the silent moon does phase

#MadVerse

...
Sweet memories do abide
Tho Ure now gone
These hollow bones
I call my own
Linger upon lifes periphery
Until Im at last called home
#MadVerse

...
In the brush of your lips
The whisper of your voice
Layer upon layer
Entwined
Entangled
Theses subtle touches
That bind us tight
#DsubVerse

...

Fearless
Intrepid
He stands alone

An armoured bulwark
Simple flesh and bone
In honour and duty
Shall he defiantly face his foe

#TastyPoem

...
Unbent
Unbroken
Defying Fate's cruel whim

Through tragedy and pain
The resilience of the human spirit
Shall live forever on

#VerseAngel

...
Nails on your skin
Carving my need
My desire
Your flesh the witness
The canvas
Upon which my carnal craving
Shall be inscribed

#DsubVerse

...
This prowling wolf
A RECKLESS FLIRT
His COME HITHER looks
Enticing her blushing DIMPLED CHEEK
Her spirit reborn
A SECOND SPRING
#DimpleVerse

...

A once proud lineage
Mapped from the dawn of time
Threading a fruitful bloodline
Where kindred abound
In a circle of endless love
#PoemTrail

...
Tobacco smoked words
"It's been a long time"
& with a gunslinger smile
Cocked n loaded
His bullets flew like deadly accusations

#MadVerse

...

What mind is this
That draws the very laws of nature
Twisting them to her devout purpose
A *gilt*y pleasure for this ALCHEMIST
#DimpleVerse

...

Let us dance upon the very lip
To tempt the uncaring Fates
Who cast us down upon the fall
My cursed shadow soul and I

#DarkLines

...

Prowling the night
Hidden within shadows
He comes to take what's his

Run far
Run fast
With a wolfish grin
He'll be at your heels
#TastyPoem

...

Gone before I realised
Or knew yr seductive purpose
U offered a rare glimpse
Elusive & fleeting
Of passionate longing
Then
Gone
#ShapePoetry

...

Beyond the looking glass
Where dreams exist
Fragile hearts do yearn

See through to what may be
Come slip betwixt the worlds

#SableSwanV

...

Lush lavender cascade
Blanketing the land
Row upon row
Where once we walked
Hand in hand
When we were young
& time moved slow
#SenseWrds 266

...

Thru the storms
& troubled times
When rivers ran high
& tears cascaded
There U stood
At my side
Catching rainbows
In your eyes

#DimpleVerse

...

Black n White
& all alone
She sits n waits
By the phone
Carnival hues
2 paint her mind
Her flesh the canvas
His lust the design
#CarnalVerse

...

Where fireflies dance
& moonbeams shine
Come sit with me
Share my wine
& we shall talk
Of what may be
In our world
Of fantasy
#BeautifulMess

...
For every storm that thunders
Heaven's shout and angel's tears
There trails behind
A rainbow tiara
Bedecked in vibrant hues

#IntrigueVerse

...
Sacrificial alter
Upon which I lay my soul
Blood stained prayer stones
Covering my heart
Sealing us 4ever
Until death do us part

#DarkLines

...
Behold AURORA
A BOHEMIAN QUEEN
Her BESPOKE SCENT
Redolent of Wiccan magic
Ruling the North
Her SILENT WOLF
Forever at her side

#DimpleVerse

...

Standing lonely in a field
Silent sentinel to the past
Ignored by those who pass on by
Forever entombed in ivy
& memories forlorn

#MadVerse

...
With the 1st touch
My senses surrendered
Lay down & begged
1 purposeful sweep
Of a sinful hand
Trailing fire
On my yielding flesh
#DsubVerse

...
As a silent assassin
Night fall comes
2 quench the dying light
Stealing aX the land
Hunting the shadows
B4 embers stir 2 life
#SenseWrds 267

...

Gyrating to a rhythm all his own
Charming my melancholy mind
His writhing snake hips do taunt
Daring me to shed all inhibitions

#VerseAngel

...
Echoes in eternity
Ripples in the fabric of time
Who came before
Or is still to come
We coalesce here
In this very room

Smoky lashes shield a smouldering gaze
Yr breath a heated rush upon my clavicle
Trembling in anticipation of yr sweeping lips

...Iridescent winged jewel
Richly bedecked
As if Mother Nature spilled her gems
In a world of grey
The lustrous SUNBIRD shines

Let your heart illuminate the path you choose
Your soul a shining beacon
A faithful lodestar
That shall never let you down

#ShapePoetry

Hark
The chime is struck
The die now cast
What is done
Cannot be undone
Locked in the past
The prophesy unfulfilled
Unwritten
#BeautifulMess

...
Soft words in the hush of night
A morning cup of coffee ready
Tenderness betrayed in all you do
These simple gestures of affection
#MadVerse

...
Nothing left
The well run dry
Running empty
Too long
Too far
Yet not far enough
Dreams faded
Turned to dust
A dead man walking

#SableSwanV

...

I'm the canvas
You're my oblivion
Paint your desires
Your every craving
Upon my living form
In passionate hues
Let me be reborn

U were my hero
Could do no wrong
In my tender eyes
U were everything
Yet feet of clay
U wore them well
My weakness
My failing

Fuchsia to salmon
Rose to coral
Perfumed perfection
Ode to the candy floss floral
In fifty shades of pink
And so many more

#DimpleVerse

...
Tread with care
My unwary friend
You walk the edge the oblivion
Uncaring of the beckoning abyss
Where black eyed souls dwell

#DarkLines

...
Creeping suspicions
Of a stranger I once loved
Secrets hidden
Lies n betrayal
All that we had
Softly destroyed
Before I even knew

#MadVerse

...
Caught between madness & clarity
A lost cry in the dying light
Betwixt purity of hope
& the poison of reality
There lies my sanity
#madVerse

...
Counting my blessings
From A to Z
Each one just for you
What you mean to me
All that you are
& what you shall be

#VerseAngel

A Rubenesque pocket Venus
Sumptuous crimson delight
Shes a sexy lascivious lady
Spreading love n happiness
All through the night

#DsubVerse

TEMPERED in the Dragon Wars
Mastering a DOUBLE EDGED SWORD
A warrior known as RONIN
She became a Legend
As the LAST SAMURAI

#DimpleVerse

Billowing drapes where no breeze can be
Sweeping shadows of no one there
Sacred names in sanguine ink
Painted on the wall

#BeautifulMess

...
All that I have
Now that you're gone
A tangible memory of you

As rain cascades
Upon my windowpane
Tears roll from my eyes

#SenseWrds 270

...
Hallowed halls in silent consecration
Bear witness in sacred observation
Echoing fervent prayers
& pretty mouths seal carnal deals
#MadVerse

...
Twisted silk & moonlight
Spilling in confused array
Upon a hotel floor
This carnal display of a stolen night
Before we say goodbye
#MadVerse

...
A dewy rose as yet unpicked
Blushing in anticipation
Like a fervent prayer a youth did dream
Ripe for plucking
Not all she seems

#dsubverse

...
Lost souls
Without purpose
Blind to a closed world
They grow weary
Haunting the shadows
Trailing behind
Nightmares dreaming

#intrigueverse

...
A mystery unchecked
Life's impressions
In chaotic profusion
Etched upon her face
She's a patchwork girl
Living amidst a tapestry

#MadVerse

...
This dead end town
Where even tumbleweed stops
& lost souls gather in crumbling rooms
Each going nowhere
But back to their Hell

#darklines

Crowned on high
Rapturous gold
Amidst sultry mauve
Silken veils
That once
From prying eyes
Did shield
Now shed
Revealing all

#sensewrds 271

Year upon year
Stretching behind
Day after day
Endlessly before
A perpetual odyssey
Never ending
Ever seeking
Immortality

#DimpleVerse

...
Apple green
Cherry red
Cerulean blue
Meadowlarks
Upon the wing
Babbling brooks
Where grasses sing
Calming peace
Tranquil space

Olympian gods
Set on high
Do battle above us
Hear their cry
The roar of the thunder
Their raging wrath
In bolts of lightning

#beautifulmess

Time is elusive
Slipping through my fingers
Yet still I wait
Knowing you're there
Just beyond the horizon
Just out of sight

#SenseWrds 272

Cast my spirit free
2 sail upon life's mercurial tide
2 where
I know not
Nor even care
Forever drifting
Borne upon a sea of joy
#Dimpleverse


...
As the sun rises
Chasing hard
The beguiling moon
In eternal yearning
2 cast his adoring rays
As moonlight splendour
Falls away

#Dimpleverse

...
She's an effervescent spirit
Brimming with life
Love and laughter
Forever spilling from vivacious teasing lips

#Dimpleverse

...

Come walk with me
In my memory garden
Where the past still lives
Forever young

#Dimpleverse

...

Be mine
He whispered
Seducing my mind

Be my amore
Until time's end
& we must part

Until then
Let our hearts
Be entwined

#Dimpleverse

...

With a forensic precision
Go below the surface
To what lies hidden
Secrets and lies
To where unseen layers
Mysteriously lie

#Dimpleverse

...
An emotional symphony
Of striking chords
Lushly formed cascades
Rich harmonious notes
I sing to U
A bittersweet song of myself

#Dimpleverse

...
Come ride the storm
Within my eyes
Come taste the rain
Of falling tears
Let a kiss of zephyr
Wild n free
Breathe upon yr heart

Lonely strangers
Walking the night
Where fate played a part

A beautiful disaster
4told in the stars
Upon streets of the heart

No words needed
However ERUDITE
The INTRICATE INK
FLAWLESSLY detailed
Drawn from the artistry
Of yr mind's eye
Speaks 4 itself

#DimpleVerse

Silvered beams
Serene tranquility
Blessing all below
Without judgement
Or condemnation
An ode 2 the moon
In cool admiration

#beautifulMess

From the East they flow
A river of hopes
Across a waving prairie
To come to rest
Where the sweetgrass & sage
In profusion grow

#MadVerse

...
Lustful leanings
Erotic imaginings
I hear your voice
Feel your touch
& from such sweet torment
Desire does flow
In molten pools

#DsubVerse

...
Haunting cries
Echoing to the silent moon
While far below
Creatures scurry
In primeval fear
Hidden in sheltering shadow

#SenseWrds 273

Blood ties
Thicker than water
Bind this family of ghouls
Their bone deep compulsion
Borne from the darkness
To consume
Devour

#DarkLines

He calls me his MUSE
A treasure to protect
This PERENNIAL VAULT
My sealed cage
My tomb
The PENDULUM of my life
Held in stasis

#DimpleVerse

Caged in my wild heart
There lies a beast
So wild - untamed
That 2 think of it
Even 2 dream
Shall be my downfall
My own misfortune
#MadVerse

Tears pour forth
Silver crescent trails
For a mind screaming in pain
Hark not the wild wolf's call
For the silence needs the storm
#madVerse

Time 2 grow
Leave pain behind
Change of heart
Become not so blind
A solstice comes
Sweet catalyst
Change is here
I won't resist
#DimpleVerse

...

Walk with me
In DAPPLED SUNLIGHT
Along a SILVAN PATH
& we shall SURRENDER
To sweet TEMPTATION
Amidst MONSOONs sudden deluge

#DimpleVerse

...
Sweet slow drag of seductive lips
Heated breath upon my neck
A devilish lick of your tongue
& I'm left quivering upon the floor

#dsubVerse

...

Did we truly believe we're free?
With choices 2 make
Decisions of our own
Mere pawns unknowing
Leashed 2 our fate
Without destiny
#DarkLines

...

As the midnight hour is struck
& chimes are crushed to silence
& when light bends to night
Then shall we dance with our demons

#MadVerse

...

Locked in carnal adoration
Hearts beating as 1
Flames licked 2 life
Consuming their world
& she bathed in jealous conflagration
#CarnalVerse

Look to the West
Upon the horizon
Beyond the setting sun
Those intrepid explorers
Risking it all
Upon the conviction of one

Steal the sunshine
From the sky
Take my wings
I shall not fly
Has been 2 long
Since U've been gone
Path grown cold
Nowhere
Alone

Rest in peace
Sweet dreams of love
Hopes now turned to dust
Her heart withers slowly
Condemned 2 B married to death
She yet prays
#darklines

Celestial gathering
Upon a velvet sky
Swept in silver moonlight

To form your name
In blessed design
Beautiful in my sight

#SenseWrds 276

Always just OUT OF REACH
There hangs a sentinel PRISTINE STAR
TANTALISING my eager anticipation
Of the coming COSMIC DAWN

#DimpleVerse

Though memories fade
Their imprint remains
My sensory scrapbook
My own mental library
Ready and waiting
Night and day

#beautifulMess

Cast adrift upon oceans wide
I set my sails for adventure
With neither map nor compass
I threw myself upon the mercy of the Gods

#MadVerse

...
In the deepest recess of my soul
I crave you as none other
Though you are not mine
Nor am I yours
Thru time our souls remain one

#dsubVerse

Here be dragons
Or so the map said
Beware what lies beyond

Shipwrecked upon islands of malice
Drowning within a bay of despair

Blood races thru my veins
The passion
Excitement
Thrill of the chase
Tasting yr scent upon my tongue
Surrender now
Yr fate
Embrace
#MadVerse

...
Sweet scent of the Highlands
Where the wild capercaillie roam
Draped in scented shades of mauve
Forever calling me home

#sensewrds 277

...
Ashes upon the wind
My wishes for you
Hopes and dreams
All that we once had
Scattered upon a breeze
To rise or fall
As the gods shall decide

...
From the Stygian depths
Languishing in chains far below
Aspirations long crushed
Burned to dust
Beneath Hell's crushing blow

#IntrigueVerse
...

Amidst dreams
Meandering
Lured from the light
2 tread a haunted path
Drawn by devious Fae
Whispering song
In seductive trance
#SenseWrds 278

Within my veins
Blood boils
My heart
A thunder 2 my ears
Passion burns
Desire a smouldering
Devouring
Flame
One consuming heatwave
#MSpoetry

She breathes
She lives
Yet never sleeps
Alive to the rhythm
Of a thousand hearts
She is their dream
Their hope
Their dread

#amwriting

Laid to rest
In blooming profusion
Yet now alone
She rests in peace
While dusty petals
Strewn in abandon
Lie forgotten in the dust
#MadVerse

Ethereal shadows
Slip & glide
Wrapped in midnight
Lucifer's bride
Embraced by the night
She roams at will
Lost 4ever
Time 2 kill

Nature in symphony
As it should be
Dreaming of U
Here
With me
Take my breath away
Steal my heart
Now & 4ever
May we never part

Silhouette promise
Carnal delight
She waits in a window
Draped in light

Tumbled silk
Slender limbs
Purple rapture
Lusty whims

#CarnalVerse

The unsent letter
All that could be
Left unsaid
Now a bitter memory

#BeautifulMess

Thrown to the wolves
Abandoned to the night
Left to roam in the wilderness
A shadow of what once was
Now invisible to one and all
#madVerse

Deliciously decadent
Sweetly sinful
Each succulent taste
This forbidden desire
My growing addiction
An appetite unappeased

Tempting fate
Each time we meet
Clandestine lovers
Before curious eyes
We walk the edge
Between right n wrong
Unable 2 resist
#SenseWrds 279

With ravenous eyes
He devoured her whole
A succulent temptation

Poised upon the edge
Ready to flee
His trembling prey waited
#IntrigueVerse

...
I walked the edge
Yet walked too long
Lost sight of the truth
What's good & evil
Fell into the abyss
But yes!
I clawed my way out
#DarkLines

Upon dreams I fly
To lands far away
On whispering wings
Wishing I could stay

#VerseAngel

The hour is nigh
My time run out
O hear my plea
Whispered shout
In dead of night
Sacred & profane
He stole my soul
My life in vain

Upon her knees
In raven garb
A Mother prays
Shaded in rainbow hues
Neath gentle eyes
That in sombre peace
Gaze serenely down

A backward glance
Her gaze promising more
She was the cure
To his burning affliction
She was the prayer
Walking out of the door
#DimpleVerse

What temptation this
Sweet delectable fascination
Enticing my appetite
Seducing my desires
A flame flaring to passionate life
#IntrigueVerse

Let my arms be the haven
You crave & desire
Let me be the cure
The remedy U seek
A shelter from the storm
A whirlwind you reap

This hothouse of envy
Greed & desire
Suffocating the most meagre hope
Where rumours spill
2 pool in shadow

Cascading rainbows
Shimmering hues
A furious kaleidoscope
One vibrant shade
Flowing to the next
In brilliant radiance

Each day an eternity
Each night unending
This mask I wear
Barren of expression
Conceals stolen thoughts
Of all we ever were

Cried the baking land
Shake the heavens
In thunderous applause
Quench this thirst
In flooding rivers swift

We did not ask
Yet still they came
Seeping thru the cracks
2 spill in oily profusion
Our now pleading shadows
Laid to ashen waste

Rock my world
In luminous intensity
Use me like
Ur wildest dream
B4 U leave
Just 1 small thing
Take me 2 the edge
Make me scream

Tossed by the wild tempest of our carnal lust
Left stranded upon satisfaction's volcanic shore
The storm's wild fury passing

Molten lava through my veins
Your breath upon my skin
My racing pulse
When you are near
My thoughts an Eden of sin

CONTRARY WINDS blew us far apart
No REVERSED OCEAN could bring U back
My memory of U
Just an UNFINISHED PORTRAIT
Fading away

Light my fire
Set me aflame
Watch me burn
Going out with a bang
From a flickering torch
To a gunpowder trail
Set ablaze my world

What once was lost
Thought dead & gone
Sparked back to life
A soul reborn
With every word
& each electric stroking touch

Dreams & wonder
In all we do
This mysterious alchemy of life
Where imagination

Forever reflect in our eyes

Years fade
One unto the other
Pages turned
Read once
Then forgotten
Yet memories of us
Forever live on
Precious in my mind

A world drowning in madness
Boiling into chaotic confusion
Lost beneath demonic confrontation
Our hidden serenity is laid 2 rest

Mortal enemies though they are
Forever in combat locked

Beware the eternal embrace of vengeance
For it will devour U in the end

Eternal nights
Lost in carnal debauchery
Followed by long days
Where guilt lies festering
A poison lanced by oncoming dusk

Unwinding before me
A beckoning temptation
That whispers promises of freedom
While losing myself along this empty road

#SableSwanV

We all have secrets
Some as sweet as nectar
Preciously hoarded
Some dark as night
Never 2 be spoken
Each a guarded furtive mystery
#Madverse

Each sliding touch
Rich with sensual promise
Releases a primal urge
An undeniable longing
That only you
& you alone
Can feed

#IntrigueVerse

Ethereal clouds dancing upon a pale blue canvas
Paint mysterious shapes in ever shifting patterns

#ShapePoetry

Each treasured scent
Or whispered sound
Takes me by the hand
2 walk me down memory lane
As if only yesterday
I kissed yr lips

Cascading waterfalls
Fed from on high
Drenching the parched land

We prayed so hard
Without hope
Yet we were heard
& answered

In CRYSTALLINE brilliance
Does sunlight dance on ebbing tides
Commanding a RHYTHMIC COLLAPSE OF WAVES
With METRONOME precision

Torn asunder by life's ebb flow
Exhaustion weighing my bones as lead
Releasing my grasp upon the shore
Gently pulled under
& Gone

Tumbling insanity
Spiralling down
Ever deeper
Slipping faster
No hope of return
Losing sight
All I knew
Fading memory
Dimming few

Secret desires
Hidden from view
Now spill in profusion
A butterfly emerges
Shedding a silken chrysalis
As inhibitions fall away

ALL I WANT is peace
WITHOUT YOU beside me
I'm lost
Going nowhere
ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVEd
Your name is forgotten
Unknown

Among scattered diamonds
Upon a velvet night sky
You're the one in a million
Apple of my eye
A guardian angel
Guiding us home

ON THE STREET WHERE U LIVE
Vibrant roses still bloom
Scented memorial to all U were
WITHOUT YOU

ALL I WANT
Is U back

Let the light of hope
Clear & shining
Bathe our lives
And remaining days
In blessed illumination
Chasing the shadows
Far away

#DimpleVerse

...

Tread with care
My unwary pilgrim
Beware what lurks
Patient & silent
Deep in furtive shadow
Waiting in the woods
2 welcome U home
#DarkLines

...

Each breath taken
A scorching fire
These shallow lungs
Barely there
Each fractured step
A ticking bomb
Each breath
A rasping cry
#SableSwanV

...
Crush your fears
Sweep them from your mind
Today is a new day
With fresh dawning hope
Before us the future
Let's break new ground

#MadVerse

...

Beauty on the surface
With neither flaw
Nor scar to see
But look below
Peel back the veil
All is raw
Fading to pale

#SenseWrds 285

...
I tried
I truly did
From creamy light
To carnal dark
Juxtaposed
They tempted
Seduced
My mouth
In anticipation
Salivated

#IntrigueVerse

...
An ADORABLE thief
She crept under my guard
To steal my heart
Before I even knew

#DimpleVerse

...

My conscience
My shadow
Each trailing behind
Nowhere 2 run
Escape a dream
Look behind
They're still there
Each prodding at my mind
#MadVerse

...

The spark lit the flame
& the flame took the lead
Scorching a golden path
Her insatiable hunger
Yet to be appeased

#SenseWrds 286

...

A butterfly emerging
Tender wings stretching forth
In the warmth of a dawning sun
Turning over that new leaf
She's a soul reborn
#VerseAngel

...
Bewitched by gilded sunsets
I wove my dreams
My fantasies
While the dream catcher spun
Capturing each
In treasured captivity

#DimpleVerse

...

Within the sheltering embrace
Of bashful willow fronds
Dappled shadows bathe
Two entangled frames
Who steal a lingering kiss
#IntrigueVerse

...
Those captured moments
Treasured and precious
Scattered confetti in a memory fading

#IntrigueVerse

Always there
Hovering
Just upon a distant horizon

My dreams
My hopes
A mirage of imagination
Or one day
Perhaps
My own reality
#ShapePoetry

...
Family ties
Forged in blood
Unbreakable strength
Interweaving destinies
Connecting threads
DNA tapestry
Binding us tight
Forever
#SableSwanV

From afar
Always just out of reach
I watch beguiled
Trailing yr steps
Whispering yr name
But my words
Soft
Lost upon the wind

#ShapePoetry

...
Keep me close
By your side
Wrap me tight
In a strong embrace
Whisper my name
Call me soft
Through the long dark night

#SenseWrds 287

...
Poised upon the brink
With JEWELLED tear drenched eyes
She let her DIAMANT… forgeries fall
Their SPANGLED brilliance drowned

#DimpleVerse

...
Shifting tides
Ebb and flow
We fade from view
Out of focus
Souls descending
An abyss beckoning
Drawn to the edge
We willingly go
#DarkLines

...
Whispers upon the swirling breeze
Ethereal forms in ghostly garb
Shifting drowsily upon the evening air
Their shrouds 2 drape
#IntrigueVerse

...
Amidst the whirlpool of spiralling life
Caught within a chaotic cascade
Breathe deep
Stand still
& let your mind come to rest

#TastyPoem

I am the whisper in your ear
The gentle touch on your shoulder
The murmur of wisdom
When fear comes 2 call
See me & feel my love
#sableswanV

Upon the hour
Here & now
2 make our final stand

2 the edge
But no further
We face our destiny

Come what may
We live or die
Today
#MadVerse

...
Gently, gently
Slumbering shallows
Bear me down the stream

Drifting weightless
Floating with death
This nightmare but a dream

#DarkLines

...

Reflections captured
Fleetingly
A glimpse then gone
Of who I am
What I could be
If I just set my soul sight free

#madVerse

...
Tender hearted charity
Written from the heart
Sweet balm offered
In your time of need
A haven of tranquility
Within my arms

A storm brewing
Within ravaged eyes
A simmering gentle rage
Smouldering heat
Fanned to flame
As venomous words
Spilled forth

A storm brewing
Within ravaged eyes
A simmering gentle rage
Smouldering heat
Fanned to flame
As venomous words

A fairytale written in the stars
Of a TIMELESS LOVE unending
Where LIMITLESS SOULs entwine
Revolving within each other's orbit

#DimpleVerse

Wise men
In lofty superiority
Unseeing what lies beneath
Blithely step into the void
While on high Gods mock
& only fools are left
#madVerse

Just out of sight
Beyond the wall
An opening lies in wait
Sweet portal
To the other side
Just open your mind
& close your eyes
#ShapePoetry

Weaving words of seductive candescence
Enchanting fantasies merge into one
& wonderous dreams become reality

#SenseWrds 289

No matter how far the road ahead
Nor how deep the rivers that cross our way
Through each shall we wade
& overcome
To win the end
#TastyPoem

Brave knights
Proud Kings
Beautiful Queens
Sad pawns
Each plays their part
As do we all
In this board game of life

#VerseAngel

Tossed in confusion
A maelstrom of chaos
My fate toyed with
By a devilish crosswind
Tugging me back and forth
With demonic fury
#ShapePoetry

...

Upon silver sands
Kissed by gentle waves
There shall I wait
In hopeful anticipation
Beneath shimmering skies
Of healing blue

#DimpleVerse

...
'Tis a harsh Winter night
When ice cleaves my bones
You offer me shelter
A warm place by the fire
Yet how I yearn
4 so much more
#SableSwanV

High on high
Ablaze with light
A new constellation
In a velvet sky
Ablaze with light
The more I gaze
As they light up my life

#DimpleVerse

...
Quiet, my dove
Let the silence dwell
In the gentle hush
Of evening dusk
As souls seep forth
To blanket the ground
Smothering all
#DarkLines

Shadows merge
One unto the other
Pervading every corner
Swallowing the light
Until all that is left
Is comforting darkness

#MadVerse

Patiently waiting
Her breath hardly there
She lies in anticipation
Held on the edge
Knowing Ur there
Just out of sight
Watching
#CarnalVerse

Hopeful eyes turn to the north
Awaiting a prophesy foretold
Of a true hero born
Birthed by gods
2 champion the right of man

#IntrigueVerse

...
Through Winter's harsh nightmare
When the cold bit deep
Thrived the dream of Summer
And a promise so sweet

#inkmine

Solitary sentinel
Upon a rocky headland
In your lonely vigil
Where crashing surf resonates
Shine your brilliance
For all to see

#TastyPoem

...
Thru veils of darkness
When confusion reigns
& I lose myself in madness
I take a breath
& find my soul
Once more within yr eyes

#SableSwanV

As hounds upon the scent
They harried our escape
Their pursuit relentless
Unto the very gates of sanctuary
Snapping at our heels

#madVerse

...
Dreams and wishes
Collect in pools
A magical fantasy wonderland

#hangtenstories

...

A celestial chrysalis
Swimming amongst crystalline stars
To glory in brilliance
As she blazed a silver trail

Whispers & lies
Those untold secrets
That burn our hearts
Cloud our eyes
Reveal yourself
Shed your fears
& come 2 life
Again

Far from the madding crowd
There lies a tranquil haven
Amidst meadowsweet
& wild growing flowers
Where I can sit
Just be me

#SenseWrds 292
...
O the wicked deception plied
Upon this tender heart of mine
Betrayed by such bewitching guile
I entrusted my fate to a thief

#VerseAngel

...
No matter the distance
How far we roam
The labyrinth we escape
Or wonders we see
Here is where you belong
& where I shall be

#DsubVerse

Screaming demons flay my mind
Taunting whispers that cut deep
They know me well
Setting aflame a self destruction conflagration

#DarkLines

...
Fading unto a shimmering view
Perspectives converge on a distant horizon
Leading our gaze in mysterious wonder

#TastyPoem

Running for cover
Mere shadows darting
Trailing screams in their dragging wake
Safety but a dash away
Yet blocked by howling winds
#madVerse

...
Myriad reflections
All together
Yet alone

#DimpleVerse #sixwords

Once upon a moonlight dream
Reflections of what might've been

#DimpleVerse #tenwords

Kaleidoscopic reflections
A million & one
In vibrant hues
Bejewelled brilliance
In myriad saturation
Beguiling my magpie gaze

#DimpleVerse

...
Such a heavy burden
Is a honourable man's conscience
When guilt and regret
Under his thoughts
Plague his careworn soul

#oceanofpoems

...
Twas a stormy night
Much like this
When winds howled
& skies did rage
As silent shapes
Of once called men
Crept in stealth

#ShapePoetry

...

Honeysuckle dreams
Upon a moonlit night
As the nightingale sings
Afore she takes flight
Leaving me alone
Lost in my sweet reverie

#inkMine

...

Gentle breath of air
My pure absolution
As rhapsodic harmonies
Linger sweetly upon the ear
Drawn forth by a skilful maestro

#SenseWrds 291

Revelling in yr Stygian gaze
Shards of anguish pierce my soul
Yr glacial touch draining my life
I offer 2 U what U would take
#SenseWrds 293

About her alabaster throat
Drape a somber garland
Of luminous gemstones
That drink the light
Yet still shine so bright

#SenseWrds 293

Chaotic emotions
Entwined in kaleidescopic permutation
Cavort in rainbow prisms
Of gemlike brilliance
Within a mind entranced
#IntrigueVerse


...
Bathed by AZURE waters
Kissing a CRYSTALline shore
PEBBLEs tumble n roll
SMOOTHed by cavorting WAVES
CATCHING them as they fall
#DimpleVerse

Cresting on a flash flood of desire
Tempestuous sensations drag us down
In a writhing whirlpool of passion
Our own perfect storm

#DsubVerse

Scandalous secrets behind closed doors
Where discretion is a thing unknown
Come take my hand
Follow me
& I shall be yr fantasy

#CarnalVerse

Wheels within wheels
Eternally spinning
Upon a journey
Never ending

#hangtenstories

Centuries of memories
Flowing through my veins
Heartache and happiness
Pulsing in the blood
Secreted in a crimson cascade

#TastyPoem
...
Tragedy came with clarion screams
Shattering the peace of night
From the shadows they slithered
& to the light we did fearfully run

#V

A buoyant leaf set adrift
Flowing towards an endless sea
Meandering where fate wills
Her dreaming soul in the hands of destiny

#DimpleVerse
...

Through years of strife
When anger & forgiveness bloomed
What matters most
When all is done
Is that you were there
Beside me

#SableSwanV

Fiendish Friday
Leads 2 Satanic Saturday
& a jamboree from Hell
Where demons cavort
& fiends in abandon frolic
Upon a dark abyss

#DarkLines

Candles glow in the night
Guiding U home
This Winter's night
When all is cold
Dark n silent
Inside a haven
Of golden warmth

Shackled inhibitions shed
Her soul set free 2 fly
She breathed in wonder
"I need you"
Offering her essence
To his dominating will
#DsubVerse

Moonbeams shining
As nightingales sing
& fireflies dance
By a babbling spring
Weaving enchantment
On a midsummer's eve

#beautifulMess

Nefarious tales
Of bloody torment
Linger and dwell
A poisonous suffocation
Each brick upon the other
Biding their awful time
#IntrigueVerse
...

Caught in a DILEMMA of my own making
Trapped in a web of chaotic indecision
Betwixt MODERN & CLASSIC
& everything in between

#DimpleVerse
...

Her crimson smile
Tainted by madness
Curls in deviant anticipation
Of the souls she'd reap
Of innocents asleep
Savouring damnation
#madVerse

Hung upon naked walls
A warning to all
She reaped the savagery
Of a vengeful King
Always looking north
Her loyalty undying

#SenseWrds 295

Come raise your glass in celebration
To wonders past & things to come
Toasted generously by all
With a generous heady libation

With liquid grace and quiet elegance
She wove a path among the Court
Always watchful
Ever vigilant
Her manners above reproach

#TastyPoem

A precious treasure
He so adores
Wrapping me in his arms
His whispered words
Teasing my ear
As he leads me
In our song

Just beyond the horizon
Thru the weeping willows
& beside a babbling brook
There shall U find paradise
In blooming profusion

Tempers flared
Times so desperate
Without rain
Sweet drenching
Thirst quenching rain
All would scatter
Blown away upon dry winds
#SableSwanV
...
Marbled halls filled by echoing silence
Ethereal wraiths fade into shadows
Their warnings unheeded
Of what is yet to come

#SenseWrds 296
...
What I feared most
Before I even knew
Was the deafening sound of silence
The empty space beside me
A lifetime without you

#beautizmlove
...
Here's to the crazy ones
Who take that leap of faith
Throw themselves off the edge
Unafraid to try
Never showing their fear

#madVerse

...
Taste buds frolicking in gay abandon
Each fruity mouthful dancing upon my tongue
In quenching effervescent jubilation

#TastyPoem
...
Strangled by those inner fears
My voice cannot be heard
Screaming demons taunt & jeer
While I crumble inwards
Choking on silence

#Darklines
...

Chaotic spirals twisting endlessly
A universal maelstrom always in motion
Drawing all within even as she casts all outward

#IntrigueVerse
...

As Summer fades to becoming Autumn
She lingers sweetly in the air
Yearning 4 what she knows is ending
Your scent upon her skin

#CarnalVerse

Ink spilling across a virgin page
Narrating the melancholy of a patient heart
Her storybook destiny yet to unfold

Good fortune beckons upon the horizon
Launch your hopes on destiny's seas
Cast your soul far afloat

A drama queen in killer heels
Her career a corpse dragging behind
She'd show those critics

Glowing reflections of a NIGHT SUN
Shimmering upon a MOON RIVER
Prelude to the SUMMER STORM
Conducted by her maestro
LIGHTNING

#DimpleVerse

Strike the deal
Upon the charlatan's anvil
Gamble your soul
What's left of it in tatters

In cold blood

#TastyPoem

Shield thine honest portals
They own to what they know not
None need know of what has occurred
Bury it deep & it'll be our secret

One rambling aimless thought after another
Spilling from the depths of a chaotic mind
Trapped in a meandering imagination

Once upon a time
But it wasn't true
I just didn't know
So here I am
Alone again
Easy come
Easy go

A shimmering jewel in a velvet sky
Setting the very heavens alight
Bedazzled by her unknown depths
We gazed in awesome wonder

Lost n alone

Drifting upon an open sea
Rolling with the moonstruck tides
Sails unfurl 2 catch the wind
Mere playthings 2 what the Gods decide

Stir things up
Make some trouble
Kick over stones
Shake the trees
Life is 4 living
So just get out there

Her hair a cascading river of flame
Copper hues dance in the evening light
A conflagration in his arms
Lit from a fire within

Whispering echoes of a troubled conscience
Swim and writhe within my mind
Though years may tumble by
My fears still remain alive

#madVerse

Back & forth in endless dance
The ebb and flow of an incoming tide
Upon a silver shore we stand
Hypnotised by the endless slide

#TastyPoem

Draped in velvet
The liquid night
Cloaked our entwined forms
This Gothic romance
Forbidden rapture
Our wicked destiny adorned

#DimpleVerse

Terpsichorean melodies
Come swirling through the trees
Mother Nature
In harmony
Orchestrates her majesty
Upon a gentle breeze
#SenseWrds 299

Here I stand
On a perfect day
Skimming stones
Nothing much to do

Watching the waves
And gulls above
Thinking only of you

#BeautifulMess

Ravaged by the storms of life
My damaged soul can bear no more
And so a barren vacuum awaits
In the vast emptiness of my heart
#ShapePoetry

Glittering waters
Bedazzling the eye
Bless the oncoming day
We stand and watch
Lulled to peace
As wavelets dance and play

Come tweak the tiger's tail
Dance with the Devil
Scream at the oncoming storm
Dare 2 do what U fear most
Roll those dice
Go on

Lounging with not a thing to do
Enjoying a lazy Sunday
As slow as molasses
On a hot August night
Time slips by in sluggish creep

#madVerse

Drawn to the darkness
Beyond the abyss
A beckoning lure of malice
Where shadows that slice an empty soul
Lurk in malevolent wait
#DarkLines

As dawn creeps softly forward
Awakening the world to a brand new day
Luminous possibilities crystallise
Offering a radiant hope

#TastyPoem

Building anticipation
1 touch upon the next
Exploring fingers
Curiously seeking
Stroking fervent desire
2 a consuming fever pitch
#DsubVerse

Memories lay as scattered petals
Beneath a weeping willow tree
Where my love & I did once sit
To watch the world we knew go by

#SableSwanV

Come follow me towards the dawn
Where a lifetime of love awaits
& impossible hopes come true
In dreaming portraits of you

#DimpleVerse

Slave to my simmering emotions
Shackled by chains of the heart
A puppet upon a pulsing heartstring
A plaything of the Gods

#SenseWrds 300

Upon mighty wings of destiny
I soar with Angels on high
Gazing with pity upon earthbound man
As I sweep far above in the sky

#BeautifulMess

Plucked from the apple tree
Rosy cheeked and succulent
Sliced to perfection
Crisp and refreshing
To tempt the craving palette

#VerseAngel

As the raging wave cascaded behind
An adrenaline rush surged thru his frame
Igniting an all consuming need
To ride the storm

#TastyPoem

When the storms of life
Gather in a frowning sky
& all things fade 2 grey
Open your heart
2 the healing wonder of love

#IntrigueVerse #love

His pale skin luminous
He shone bright as a diamond
Yet so glacial remained his gaze
His soul locked within a frozen cage

Blanching in trepidation
A trembling willow bowing to destiny
Poised upon the very edge
Her pale skin a luminous beacon

#becomingfragile

As the dew upon the bloom
With the first blush of Spring
Shall my love for you
Forever be
As fresh & new
As when we met

#SenseWrds #love

Lapped by the tender caresses of curling waves
The beach lay back & surrendered to it all
With but a sigh of shifting sands

#DimpleVerse

Celestial jewels shining bright
Garlanding the velvet sky on high
As voyagers in their nocturnal quest
Sail towards the horizon

#TastyPoem

Here & now
Is where you are
All your decisions
Choices made
Led to this very place
So live your life

Ethereal mystic merry go round
Standing silent in the night
Awaiting Hell's own ghoulish riders
Taking their wild final ride

Writhing shadows shift & fade
Revealing his macabre gaze
A ghoulish maestro conducting cadavers
Towards a cruel death crescendo

Soulful eyes
That view the world
In wide eyed wonder

Sights to behold
Beauties to be seen
Witnessing all its splendour

#BeautizmLove

Surrendering my all
Without hesitation
In falling into you
Submerging myself
I arose reborn
Myself set free
Yours forever more

Iridescent strands that sway
Drawn by the moods of mercurial seas
Her toxic beauty a shimmering veil
Concealing a venomous kiss

#TastyPoem

What secrets beyond those shy distant stars
Lay hidden awaiting to be told
Celestial lucid brilliance in vibrant display

#Dimpleverse

When others turn away
Shaking their bent heads
That is your time
To come to the front
Step up to the plate
& do what they won't

Welcome to Hell
Population growing every day
Where those who've lost hope
Stumbling in the dark
Fall to the abyss

Magic wrapped around her soul
Infusing power beyond human imagination

Like water slipping through my fingers
Time lost all meaning
Losing grip on harsh reality
A fertile imagination became my haven

Endearing whispers
Gentle kisses
Each one a vow of devotion
That lingers on
Down through the years
Enduring heartfelt emotion

Luminescent brilliance
Setting the velvet sky alight
A universal crowning glory
A wondrous magical sight

Bitter retribution

Crushes it to oblivion

Burnished 2 luminescent brilliance

Spinning in ever decreasing circles
Spiralling without control
Gravity my dominant master
Orchestrating my inevitable surrender

Cast away upon abandoned shores
She lies forsaken
A gift to the curious waves
Tugging gently at her bow
Teasing her slowly to sea

Shedding inhibitions
Unpeeling layer by layer
Until nothing is left
No inhibitions spared
Just skin

Measuring the pretty noose swinging in the breeze, I stared in absolute horror at the death trap waiting above skeletons piled

Lost sight of the shore

I searched for you
Always seeking
Forevermore

Run!
You fool
U think you can?

But listen hard
The breath you feel
So close
So near

My voice
The last laugh
You'll ever hear

Echoing silence to cloak shifting shadows
That collide and swarm in riotous fury
Ghosts of what was once
Yet can be no more

WARPED

Forever changed
Because of U

Face your fate
Do you stay and die

His eyes spoke death

My world set aflame
Burnished ablaze
Mother Nature herself

We placed our hopes
Where they fall
How they roll

At midnights chime

There & back again

Lost and reclaimed
In the swing of a sword
The vow of a King

Misbegotten hellions
Sluggish battalions

Bewitching beauty
Timeless tantalisation

With a flutter of wings
She took flight and soared

#hangtenstories

Stardust and moonlight
In crowning glory
A celestial halo
To wreath her earthen brow

Beyond the edge of sanity
Where the raw & the real
Truth & fantasy
Carve an imperfect mask
Upon porcelain perfect features

#MadCarnival

A tree grows strong
In the face of adversity
When storms do threaten
& wild winds blow
Casting wilted petals
Upon barren earth

Mystical sorceror deep in the forest
Conjuring wicked portents magical
Hunted yet feared
She wrought her will upon the land

#SenseWrds 329

Taken by the night
Creeping inwards
From shadows deep
They slither forth
Masterful monsters
Always watching you
Seeing things

Lust that lingers in the air
Sultry & heady
Long after U were there
Silken flesh yearns 4 more
Together we have
So much 2 explore

Dissolving reality spirals wildly out
As entropy orchestrates shattering corruption

Carved from marble
Flesh & blood
Once that was
Now is no more
Frozen in time
Still life in repose
Awaiting your touch
Release

Angels & demons
Within dark corners
Do lurk in dire anticipation
Saints & sinners
Do endless battle
Without hope of salvation

Voodoo child of the sluggish bayou
Borne from poisons flowing black
What demons whisper in your mind
What evil ever calls U back

A bit of mischief
Wrapped in impishness
Where jokers do frolic

While jesters mock
& capricious gods laugh

Caged emotions
Seeking release
Always on the inside
Looking out
Suffocating inhibitions
Shrouding a soul
Begging to be free

Seduced by the velvet sumptuousness of night
They succumbed to carnal temptation
In shadows deep & dark
Where secrets do hide

In this CIRCLE OF LOVE

Come come
Sweet child
And follow me
From treat to treat
Sugary sweet
All the way to Grandmaís house
On the confectionary trail

#VerseAngel

Creatures of the night
Flitting to and fro
With wings so black
And hearts so cold
They prowl the frigid air
And poisonous fog

Lanterns light the path
Beyond which
I dare not tread
Echoes of footsteps
Still tremble on the air
Of those long past
Or dead

Rituals and recitals
This haunted mansion
Witness to many
Within now silent corridors
Demon hunters stalk their prey

Sip the witches brew
If you dare
These will o the wisp
Ethereal nightmares
Seep like poison
In a spinning promenade of ghosts

Gracing a celestial brow
Stratus clouds do gild
Fleeting beauty in the heavens
We stand below
In awe struck thrall
Gazing still

A dream in silk and velvet
She haunts his mind
A vision in cashmere luxury
Of grace divine
Unattainable yet unforgettable

Malleable clay formed Man fired in the kiln

Hearts lay broken in a trailing wake of melancholy sorrow upon the heels of arrogant heroes who crush without care

Enslaving menís minds

Naughty as hell

If you ever think of leaving
Iíll make you think twice

She bravely faced the fierce onslaught
The brief respite of nightís dark hours
Left her bereft of hope yet still she stood

Such tangled weeds that suck & pull
At a soul yearning to break free
In Edenís haven a sanctuary found
Where I can be just me

Intoxicating scent
Aphrodisiac sublime
Weaving thru my senses
Wildfire in my blood
U draw me like no other
As none ever could

As petals scattered
Memories lie tumbled
In dejected profusion
Upon hallowed ground

Of what once was
In Summer's warmth
Now grown cold
In Winter's shadow

Yet still I hear yr voice
Feel your breath upon my cheek
Until we shall meet again
Within those sacred halls

#SenseWrds 334

Frigid glacial Arctic magnificence
Incessantly creeping
Ever seeking
This molten volcanic hellish temptation

Hurricane words lost in a storm of emotion
Clouding tempestuous thoughts brewing within my mind

#BeautizmLove

Crimson light upon shining cobblestones
Brilliant neon a luminous beacon
Shining bright in the velvet night

Lord of the forest deep
Where creatures wild quietly creep
Observes in patient yet rising hunger
For his Summer princess in full bloom

Forever etched upon my mind
Treasured UNFORGETTABLE memories
Of everything you are
And what you mean to me

A nightmare to some
Dream to others
Walking the night
Through shadows thick
And silence eery
Haunting the minds
With fearful intent
They whispered her name
Rose of the Dead

#DarkLines

Silk and lace
Sensual slide
Awakening dawn
Sensuous tide

Carnal hungers
Once laced in tight
Slipping free
To caress the night

#CarnalVerse

Smoothing misty veils
That do shroud an Earthen brow
Away do they fall
Leaving all in the shimmering clarity
Of another beautiful morning

#PoemTrail

Strewn upon some forsaken battlefield
Poppies gather as if bloody kisses
Spread in forlorn affection
On these most honoured
Fallen flowers of manhood

The favourite one
Adored and cherished
By those who cared
In them would her memory
Neither tarnish nor perish

#DimpleVerse

Sheltered by these willow boughs
In tender gentle draping
Shall we find our love
In sweet sensual awakening

#SenseWrds 336

Fear is like poison
To seep and spread
Watching yourself
Every word
Every tread
But there is more
If you but look
With eyes open wide
To better things

#WyldeVerse
...
Poppies bloom
In blood red profusion
The killing fields bathed
In glorious illusion
From death shall they rise
To walk once more
Beneath heavenly skies

#DarkLines
...
Rosy cheeked in anticipation
Of the oncoming Winter
When frost limned leaves
Hang suspended
Frozen in eery glacial splendour

#TastyPoem
...
I said to love
In words sweetly soft
Why do you hurt me so?
What did I ever do to you?
And in the seed of my question
Lay the damning truth
If I never had faith in love
Why would it have faith in me?

#TLPoetry

Golden rays of dawn come creeping
To bless the land in a good morning kiss
Warmth and light a gift from heaven
What can ever be better than this

#SenseWrds 337

Where did you go?
Why did you leave?
ďCall meĒ I whispered
But no one was there
And my heart ached anew ...

#DimpleVerse

My once cherished yet now scorned heart
Torn asunder by celestial demons
This promised pain the scribes foretold
Yet I was blind to the truth until too late

Scarlet suffusion in midnight dreams
Crimson beauty in a carnal mindís eye
Seeing red signs towards sensual oblivion

#PoemTrail 208

No need of logic
What I feel
Within the marrow of my bones
Is the passionate longing
That defies all reason
Telling me
That with you
I am not alone

#IntrigueVerse

As light fades
Dimming to black
I see your face
In this vanishing moment
And all is crystallised
At once shining true
That with no-one else
Will I ever have
What I had with you

#ShapePoetry

The moon quietly shines
Her beauty gracing the night
While far below I sit
In tranquil solitude
Weaving dreams of what can be
If only you were here with me

 #SatLines

Caught betwixt future & past
What went before
Now cannot last
But what lies ahead
Beyond the pale
Is a world full of friction
Deception and lies

#DimpleVerse

IMMERSED in the wonder of our love
Where the EPICENTRE is you
And only you
Soul deep passion EMBEDDED
In hearts joined forever as one

#DimpleVerse

Violet lips whisper of promises
Plum persuasion curving flesh to her will
Where cravings undeniable
Grow day by day
Hour upon hour
Until beneath your tender touch
They irrevocably spill

#carnalverse

Drum beats call in primal rhythm
Luring my blood to impassioned abandon
Pulsating tempo loosening inherent inhibitions
Leading our steps in weaving intrinsic patterns

#TastyPoem

Beckoning shadows luring wayward hearts
Subtle secrets that spill forth
Revealed in moonlightís mystical gaze
Yet tenderly treasured by the soft decay of time

#PoemTrail 209

Blossoming in graceful profusion
Wreathed in Mother Natureís bountiful beauty
A majestic purple reign of such vibrant brilliance
That the ticking of time could not diminish

#DarkLines
...

A serpentís tongue silenced
A rogue brought to heel
A match made in heaven
No other love could be as real

#DimpleVerse
#Shakespeare
...

Balanced on the cusp
Teetering upon the brink
We dance upon the razorís edge
Tempting fate with wicked smiles
Daring that which we know not
To berate and punish such youthful guile

#WyldeVerse 37
...
Caught in these melting moments
That wax and wane with mercurial moods
Sightless eyes that yet see so much
Weep gory tears in futile frustration
At a world consumed in bitter agitation

#DarkLines
...
We take no heed
We who wander
Of signs and such
That bar our path
Across the miles
From sea to shore
And back again
None is a stranger
To we who travel
Who seek horizons
Always beyond
Just out of reach
One more step
Upon lifeís bountiful beach

And live once more
Our love forever

Empty lies the glen

Solitude & silence
Where dark deeds malinger

Lines are drawn
Boundaries set
The black with the white
One is of purity
The other of night
Curves and lines
Valleys between
An explorer's paradise
A lover's dream

#CarnalVerse

Curiouser and curiouser
Tumbling ever deeper
Into a shadowy abyss
Where echoes are swallowed
Suffocated to silence
Slave to demonic whimsy
No rabbit hole this
But a portal to Hell
Where damnation awaits
& nightmarish demons
Do violently dwell

#IntrigueVerse 86
...
With but a single touch
You unravel me
Seeking out my secrets
One by one
With carnal curiosity
Trace every line
Until all is laid bare
Brought forth from shadow
Unto the light
Only your gaze
Shall I wear

EXPOSED LIMBS beckon seductively
Swaying STARK NAKED to the masterful command
Of a rising wind

Caged imagination
Brought to heel
Bound and gagged
She can neither see nor feel
Senses enchained
By sorcery enchanted
She screams within
While crumbling without
In time shall she fade
Of that
There is no doubt

Upon the stroke of midnight
Shall your dreams slowly perish
Before your wondering eyes
At the coming of the dawn
Shall you consider yourself so foolish

Heaven's cleansing balm
In sweet torrent flows
To sweep away
In flowing deluge
What blocked my way
Leaving me unconcerned
To take a deep breath

This soaring fever that feeds on my pain
A furnace of Hell's own fiendish design
Consuming my flesh and whats left of my mind

That feed my inner fire

#VerseAngel
...

Years they come
And swiftly go
Like sand
Slipping through our fingers
I turned around
And you were gone
Leaving only memories
Of sometime
Long ago
When you were mine
And I was yours

#inkMine
...

Betwixt the end of one life
Beginning of another
Lays a chasm of silence
So many things unsaid
What we did mean to say
Yet what could not pass our lips
In this quicksand of doubt
To trap the unwary

#ShapePoetry
...

Chaotic harmony reckons without furious discourse
Drawing forth the unwary in orchestrated mayhem
Scattering faith upon barren land
To rest until itís reborn

#DimpleVerse #23words
...

Bauble bedecked exuberance
Sparkling wonders hung on high
Effervescent excitement bubbling
Tis the warmth and love
Of family and friends
Drawing together as Christmas draws nigh

#BeautizmLove
...

My NOCTURNAL companion
Watching from the hidden shadows
His NIGHT VISION vigilance
Ever patient in sentinel guard

#DimpleVerse #23words
...

The fallen lie in row on row
Their journey now over
Nowhere left to go

From the depths shall they rise
To claim what is theirs
Succumb without fear
Rest quietly now in their grave

#DarkLines
...
A dream
Drifting
Upon sandy shores
Floating
Bathed by lapping waves
Tenderly carrying
Her far from here

Imagination takes flight
On wings of mysterious fantasy
My soul soars to the stars
Wrapped in wondrous dreams

Come, fly away with me
Beyond the horizon
We cannot yet see
Let us dance upon a thimble
Taking joy where we can
And all in tranquil balance

#PoemTrail
...
Between fate and destiny
The push and the pull
A dynamic tension binds us together

Entwined in silken viscosity
We slip from one to the other
And back again

Shear force of nature
Whims of the Gods
Taunting our weakness
They toy with our thoughts

#TastyPoem
...
Senses seduced in heady INDULGENCE
Succumbing with a whispering sigh
This sweet COFFEE CARAMEL
Dancing upon my tongue
Tempting my greedy desiring palette

#DimpleVerse #23words

In the depth of midnightís embrace
When darkness prevails
And daylight succumbs
Then shall I dream
And think of you
And the sunlightís revival
Of your return
To brighten my world once again

His Christmas wish
Gaily wrapped
In sweet anticipation
Lit up his world
This Christmas night
Seductive with temptation

#CarnalVerse

Entranced in moonstruck awe
We stood enraptured below
Her glowing luminescence
Bathing the world in silver
Captured our minds in wonder

#DimpleVerse

Side by side
Folds in time
Beyond our sight
A presence felt
Behind the veil
Mysterious knowledge
We walk alone
Yet never together
Always in step
Though we do not know it

#WyldeVerse 42
...

Beside a fire
Flaming bright
Iím lost in thought
Of you this night

Warm impressions
I cannot forget
Of all that you are
Since we first met

Within the flames
I see your face
Your love and laughter
Patience and grace

#SenseWrds 354
...
Once upon a time
Just over the rainbow
Through the looking glass
Beyond the river bend
Almost within reach
Yet still out of sight
This new chapter
I yearn to write
Evades me still
A thief in the night
Still trapped for eternity
Reading this old book

#DimpleVerse

Deny me now
Look away
Forget you ever knew

But I shall remember
Hoarding emotions
Of a love once new

Now torn asunder
Burned to dust
Left to ashes by you

Soft caress
Silent adoration
From Heaven above

Diamond brilliance to set the universe alight
Multi hued profusion shining bright
A New Yearís Eve dazzling shine
Under which I am yours
And you are mine

Time of sorrow
Pain and heart break
Torn asunder
Loveís cruel thrust

A new year dawning
Fresh and new
Soothing balm
I shall forget you

Mist of healing
Hear my prayer
Put this all behind me
As if you were never there

Dusty petals
Scattered wide
Strewn mementoes
Now brushed aside

Heart of ash
Dust to dust

The past a barren landscape
The future fertile with possibility
It beckons me on
With hope forever burning in my breast

This stagnant shroud
Cast to the ground
Embrace the change
Blown by portentous winds

Bewitching temptation
Addictive sensation
Drawn to the wicked
Enslaved by desire
Seduced by sensuality

Stardust dreams of heaven found
Chaotic thoughts
As CRAZY PEBBLES

In passionís profusion
Hot with fresh blood
Be under no illusion

Mournful tears

Do drown my spirit
In memories sweet

Those days are gone
Long long ago
When we were young
And didnít know

Laughter and fun
From dawn to dusk

Life tore us apart

Now found again
Our simple toy box
Crammed with memories
Their stories unlocked

Beneath tranquil skies
Amidst picturesque vistas

My heart turned to stone
Idyllic sanctuary
My secret long sought haven

Lost within your embrace

When voices
In jubilation
Join together
In harmony
Then shall we all
Reside in peace
Our troubles seeming
Far away

#shapepoetry
...
Formed in Stygian gloom
Silent bestiality slithers forth
Hungering for souls
Thirsting for blood
Seeping from shadow to shadow
Opaque gaze bewitched by Hell
To devour all they seek
The Devilís horde slips free
At the birth of darkness
To rise and consume

#DarkLines

Persuasive whispers
Soft arguments
Pull me to and fro
This interior monologue
That spurs my guilt
I turn away from all I knew
My lonely soliloquy
Unspooling in mysterious evolution
An echo of of hopes and dreams
Of all I wish
In an unending stream
Of consciousness

#DimpleVerse

His presence lingers still
In his scent upon my flesh
His taste upon my tongue

I count the hours
The very minutes
When we can be one

Play the game in secret
No one knows nor sees

Just for you and me

#CarnalVerse

Poised on the precipice
In sweat soaked fear
My courage shrinking
To wisp and wither
At nightmareís gate
Threshold of Hell

That plagues my mind
Chills my blood
Slithers betwixt the cracks
Of a shattering mind
As if nothing there

How proud you look
Upon your throne
Do you ever look down
Do you even notice
Those upon the ground

Much too fast
On the backs of others

Winds are blowing
Change is coming
I hope youíre ready
For soon
Youíll be going

Spark to the flame
Tinder to the flint
Unruly passions
In wild explosion
Friction set the charge

Racing the wind far from sight
Prevailing against the oncoming storm
Her ambition only to make safe haven

Ethereal guest
Upon the stairs
In a state of unrest
A warning to some
A welcome ghost to others
Tread with care
For you disturb
What you cannot know
What you cannot share

This time we have
So fleeting and fragile
Here for a moment
Then gone forever
Before it is wasted
Let the floodgates open
Let emotions pour forth
And live for the moment

Love and ashes
Upon barren ground
Scatter and drift
None left to be found

Upon this pyre
To a love so true

No more can we do

Woke up finally
Running away
From myself

Unlocked my cage

Ethereal veil
Fleeting glimpse
Through the pale

Grains of sand
Until tomorrow

Untamed
From the sea
She was born
In her gaze
Far reaching

In silent watch on a distant horizon
With EYES LIKE RAIN

For a love once lost
Forever and a day

Far far away

A glittering adornment

Mourning draped
Soul full of sorrows

Though the ocean be wide
The heavens ablaze
No Gods would keep him
From her side

In light she did walk
Purity etched on her face
Blessed by angels
She was his saving grace

Fearing the worst
In her arms he would rest
His life no more cursed

Creatures of the night seeking mortal annihilation

Divine anticipation quickens my heart

Within our secret world of musing

So well hidden
You found the key
Unlocking my soul
To discover the real me
I was lost in thought

And watched me fall
Never knowing

I was waiting
Just for you

WHEN DARKNESS PREVAILS
Shadows pool in unlit doorways
Making deals in KILLER HEELS
Selling their souls and more
Whatever will work
Seal the deal
Just another night
They no longer feel
Always chasing
The POT OF GOLD
Before the dawn
& Another soul sold

A quiet whisper in my mind
Gentle kiss from a passing breeze
The haunting cry of a soul caged
Echoing the power of the wild
That calls to my deepest desire
A yearning need screaming aloud
To be set free and allowed to fly

Whisper a name
Whisper it twice
Pause for a moment

Swift upon wing
Answering your call
An ethereal thing

To those who can hear
He offers wise words
To those who cannot
They are lost on the wind

Swimming through time
Lost in our paradise

Condemnation grown cold

Set adrift for now

Of that we do know
So I bid ye adieu
For now

Now we are the masters
Can you hear their dying gasp?

Sacred hallowed words still echo within my heart
Along the highway of broken dreams I now travel

Blown away upon a cruel breeze

Warming my heart as you always did

If you dare
Down to the forest

Say goodbye to the world
Itís Hell youíre now in

Until we meet again
Time it passes slowly
Each hour as if ten

When we can be together
No longer far apart
Two souls again as one
With but a single heart

Without you Iím not whole

Always there

Forgiving what Iíve done
Seeking personal absolution
Back upon my feet
Though mired deep in destitution

Forever shall I roam
No day shall be the same

Murmuring her name

Crimson and noir
These be the colours
Of pain draped hearts
Their taste of happiness
To be hemlock flavoured
No bliss on this Earth
Shall they ever savour

My soul a desert
Ravaged by time
Where nothing now grows
All is dust left behind

Then you came
A breath of fresh air
Bringing the rain
Showing you care

Quench my thirst
Drench my mind
Pull me under
Steal my time

We trail the steps of those before us
They are long gone yet still surround us
In the fading echoes of a dying breeze
Along crow road amidst crowding trees
Ethereal memories forever frozen
In a time immemorial we are the chosen

A devil unleashed in the dead of night
When all is silent and hidden from the light
She knew it was wrong yet still she dared
To ride the wave with no inhibition spared

Welcome night visitors
Ethereal and silent
Theyíre with me still

The ghosts that I called
One lonely night
So long ago

Spectral companions
I know them well
Sent from Heaven
Or really Hell?

No cosmic cunning mystery this
Secrets and lies laid in plain sight
For all to see who wish to
He prowls among the stars so bright
Woodland wisdom set Heaven high
To set ablaze in wonder the starry night

Through blood did we wade
Waist deep & more
Following the King
All the way to the enemy shore

Valorous honour  we wore that day
When Mars brandished his sword
& showed us the way

Here on the bank
Where the wild flowers bloom
Shall we make a stand
Or face our doom

Time and imagination
A dangerous combination
When nights are sultry
And blood runs hot
When dreams come true
Now I wait for you

His fiery oratory lit the spark
A flaming torch down through the years
In an all-consuming conflagration
The once smouldering wish of a nation
Became the raging inferno of freedom

SUMMER RAIN
Come fall on me
Drench me whole
I beg of thee
Bathe me in liquid DECADENCE
That this SPARSE desert
This parched spirit
May breathe once more
And flower again

From the light did she stray
A long time ago - year and a day
Now she trails within shadows deep
The Dark Nun they whisper
As by her they creep
No mortal gaze may view her form
She is a wraith foretelling the demonic storm

Her name was Fate
Though some did whisper
Destiny
Gazing spellbound
In midnight moonlight
As stars scatter
Across velvet skies
Celestial deities do bless
In brilliant cosmic luminescence
Her fame throughout the universe

Look below the surface
Of pristine liquid serenity
Into a world where mermaids frolic
With flowing angelic fluidity
Enticing curious lustful eyes
That covet with greedy carnality
& succumb unto their siren call
And their elemental sensuality

Forced upon downward motion
snowdrifts footing still
frozen time and place
only echoes of sun
traces left behind
Shades of warmth
Barely a trace
This frozen wonderland
Do gently grace

A juggernaut out of control
A BOULDER unstoppable
Slamming through barriers
BOWLED OVER chaos strewn behind
BOLDER and bolder
He crashed on by

Fly the Black
Give no quarter
Take what you want
Give nothing back
The cry of The Brethren
Harsh and wild
They lived by a code
And by a code
Did they die
Without regret
Nor shame implied
They stood their ground
Or swung Ďtil they died

#FieryVerse

The fife shall play
& the drum shall beat
Hear them echo
Down the years
In the Declaration
Of our hopes & fears

Fireworks blaze
In a Summer sky
Cold beer & laughter
A holiday high
In the air is a sense
Of excitement
& wonder
On this beautiful
