unfulfilled love - unrequited love - love relinquished - life unlived...

we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories of love around the campfire - come along -

poetry from the heart...


POETRY FROM THE HEART - my own words dedicated to all the words left unspoken, the acts left undone - the love unlived unfulfilled -

i dance with you...only in dreams...

sorrow sweeping...

sorrow
sweeping
us
away
tears
keeping
that
bleakest
day
did
we
forget
i
could
not
stay
when
love
did
us
betray

shall we.....



sanctuary...

you were mine
and i yours
and still my heart soars
your love as my shrine

Friday, August 28, 2009

more...







I love you
the more in that
I believe
you had liked me
for my own sake
and
for
nothing
else

to sleep...

dark are the days
darker still the nights
blackest black within my dreams

for me it did not pay
to love unleashed with all my might
left now with
just
my
screams

i live...

do not think me
oh so sad
do not believe it
was all bad

no - do not think it so
for i have been where few may go
i have touched the pure white snow
i have seen the mountain’s glow
do not think me satan-sent
do not believe that i repent
no - do not think it true
for i have been where cupids flew
i have touched love’s golden gates
i have felt the hands of eros quake
where love’s grace did on me bestow
like luscious absinthe spread below
for i have been loved true
and
now
i live anew

but now i see...

could you not see what i could see
each time we met in secrecy
could you not feel the children's fears
each time we held each other dear
'tis not your fault
i entered knowingly into our vault
i entered willingly i cannot me exalt
but when i knew
t'would not be you
to say nevermore
it was i
who shut the door
saying no forever more
what else
was i to do

but i miss you

the touch...

the lovers touch
in a pool of blue velvet

Thursday, August 20, 2009

your touch...

the touch of your thoughts
is all i have sought
the taste of your heart
to me you impart
the sight of your soul
you
gave
in whole

the dark of my heart...

it is the night of the new moon
only one small sliver of light remains
all the rest is darkest dark
so unlike our very first spark
when on this journey we embarked

so too my heart since last we met
only one small sliver of light remains
when on that day i bid adieu
all the rest i sent with you
to hold in yours
till we meet again
in
love
renewed

the moth of me...


I can give not
what men call love;

But wilt thou accept not
The worship the heart lifts above
And the Heaven's reject not,
The desire

of the moth

for the star,
Of the night for the morrow,
The devotion of something afar
From the sphere of our sorrow?

golden shores...

i slept once more
in dreams of you
slept once more upon
those golden shores
where words and thoughts
can 'neer be done and must instead
be ignored

down the garden path...

words unspoken
but not unthought
just a tiny token
of
feelings
sought

little bird little bird...

little bird
little bird
how do you chirp
far too moved
far too captured
too enraptured
to wander forth
to flee the door
to close the door

little bird
little bird
how do you chirp
far too moved
far too captured
too enraptured
to wander forth
to fly to soar

staying inside
the dreams
the dreams you make

the dreams of yours
no one can take...

the blind...

did we not see
what never could be
did we not care
how could we dare
to be that which we could not be
you and me and me and thee
and leave behind
our fools' debris

from sleep...

i woke again to
your caress

the softness of your
lips upon my breast

i woke again to your finesse
the taste of sweat upon your chest
i woke again to your caress
wanting needing
nothing more
nothing less

the bath...

if only
i could wash away
my want
of you

i lived not...

i lived not
till first there was
you

anna's test...

she
felt

that she

would not have
the strength

to change for the
degraded position of a
woman who
formed a union

with her lover,
that, however much she tried,
she could not
become

stronger
than
herself.

THE GLACIER...

feeling the ice I walk upon
cautiously waiting
for the coming crack

the sound of it
always taking me back

to a time when life's fun
was already gone


remember to get me
a piece of the money

stashed in that
frozen river of my youth

find me some love
in the waters of truth

buy me some happiness
get me some honey


seems as if that tired old feeling that need
stays with me
this day and every day

draggin’ behind me
wherever I wander
wherever I stray

tryin’ to keep that
cold dark hunger at bay


...borrowed words from an anonymous friend...

love beckons...

When
love beckons to you
,

follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you
yield to him,

Though the sword
hidden among
his pinion
may
wound
you -

crossing over...


are you ready for the other side
to see what's there upon the tide
are you ready for the other side
for your arms your heart to open wide
are you ready for the other side
or will you falter run and hide
are you ready for the other side -

the meaning of words...

time takes
new meaning
since first
we spoke
without your
daily words
as antidote
i find my
spirit leaning
into the
darkness
of
loneliness

shall we leap?

you asked if i wanted to cross the bridge with you
the truth is that crossing takes far too long
so
shall
we
leap?

i was thirsting...

and you gave me drink...
i was hungry
and you gave me sustenance...


my flower for you...

the deep blue sea...

is there a place
for you and me
a place
where we can be
is there a place
for you and me
where others cannot find
is there a place
for you and me
where others do not bind
is there a place
for you and me
perhaps
the
deep blue sea

waiting...

i wait for you - in dreams

the fisherwoman...

did you think
i did not see
the danger
the monster
awaiting me
twas not the hidden
beast beneath the sea
that frightened me
did you think
i did not feel
the shackles
pulling me apart
ripping open
to my heart
twas not these chains
which bound me so
that frightened me
don't you see?
it was the thought
what if my love
were all for
naught
and

your

love
i
had
not
caught

searching for you...

i traveled near
i traveled far
i traveled all around
searching for you
was i bound

longing
for your sight
wishing
with all my might
for just a glimpse
just a taste
without you
life was but a waste

and then
to find my golden chalice
what love what joy what desire fulfilled
only to have the glory all destroyed, killed
torn apart at the hands of others' malice

moontouch...



last night i woke
to the softness
of your hand upon
my breast -
lingering in the moment
i scarce did move from
your caress -
but when to light
i did submit
it seems your touch
was but the moon
fully lit -

the thought of you...

and
i am lost

in blue velvet

the full moon...

the
full moon
comes
tonight
do you feel it
do you taste it
i feel only you
taste
only
you
only you

the why of it...

if i were pressed
to say
why

i love him

i feel it can only be explained
by replying
because
it was he
because
it was me...

the letter unwritten...



oh, what good
will writing do?
i want to
put my hand out
and
touch
you...

one animal in the forest...

afterward
we will be
as
one animal
of the forest
and
be so close
that neither one
can tell that
one of us
is one
and
not
the other -
can you
not feel
my heart
be
your
heart?

rest with your dream in my dream...

“And now you’re mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are pure beside me as a sleeping amber.

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their soft drifting signs drop away;
your eyes closed like two gray wings, and I move

after, following the folding water you carry, that carries
me away. The night, the world, the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.”

hera and zeus...

the pomegranate.....

come to me
my sweet zeus
come to me
on my golden throne
come to me
with your mighty staff
come to me
my sweet zeus
come to me
honor my desire
come to me
grant me this wish
come to me
do not deny me
come to me
do pleasure to me
come to me
my sweet zeus
draw quickly
your thick sword
from its sheath
spread open the crimson orb
taste thee my fruit
thrust your thunderbolt
pierce the supple flesh
glistening in the light
come to me
my sweet zeus
drink thee of my nectar
sample the seeded apple
honour me with thy feast
whisper gentle words
that only mine heart can hold
come to me
my sweet zeus
eat thou
my forbidden fruit...

hera

i am yours...

hier
aujourd' hui
demain
avec mon ame
je suis à toi...
