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...

tweet me, but tweet me gently, please!

wishin' you love and blood red moons in 2011...


blood
red
moon
in midnight black 

touching you
touching me 
blood in the moon
love gone too soon
tears in my heart
why did we part

blood

red
moon 
in velvet light
kissing you
kissing me

blood in the moon
cries love’s tune
sadness to stay
and we both pay

wish i might
have my wish
come true this night

of

blood

red
moon

the tactic...

from you
there was
no thief
in the night
sneaking without sound
into the dark
that was my life

stealing
slowly
surely
my love

no
from you
there was
the barging in
the raging stampede
the complete attack
holding unspeakable ransom
in one swift swoop

leaving no option
but
the total surrender

of my heart
.

do you...


do you think
of any other
save for me

do you see
the other
and think of me

do you hold
another and
feel only me

do you kiss
the other lips
but taste my own

do you cry
her name aloud
but hear just mine

does your body
find distasteful
all but ...
mine

i know -
because i do
you, too...


[i know, a re-post - enjoy again!]

MAKES THE JOURNEY
SO MUCH BRIGHTER AND WARMER 
AND I AM HONORED
TO HAVE YOUR FRIENDSHIP!

WISHING YOU AND YOURS
PEACE AND LOVE

atonement...

























littered with memory’s remains

days fill with my heart’s black rain
 
nights now bound in love’s cold chains
 
life goes on the gods ordain

life without you lived in vain

shadow love...













they saw confinement
i felt contentment
they saw withdrawal
i was 
within
they saw
 slavery
i became 
free
they saw 
what they saw





i stayed
 me

ghost love...






























when you reach out in the night
and search for me

with all your might
then call my name in vain
does it really feel the same

with her?

i surrender...

i have fought far too long
etching memories into my heart
storing them safely
to take them down from
the shelf of what was
to hold them still to caress them
to sniff the fragrance of their time
a time when life was
when love was
when i was
when we were
fearing life unbearable
without the flavor of their reality
i have fought far too long
keeping them alive
keeping them at the surface
of the waters of my mind
where they could remain forever
cellularly connected to the me of me

so that my soul might still survive
the dankness and darkness of
the nothingness of now
the now without you
the now without us
and therefore, the now without me
for what can remain of me
when that part of me that
completed me is gone
is no longer with me
no longer beside me
no longer in me
leaving this
nothingness of now
this absence this void
i have fought far too long
yes, it is true
so now - now -
now - i surrender
i surrender me
i surrender all that was
all that could have been
that should have been
that never can be again
i surrender all
else how might i go on
how might you continue
each not living while alive
each choosing death by life

so i surrender
to love to passion to life
i surrender to us
i shall choose to live
for us both

you there and me here
smiling for what was
weeping not
for what cannot be

yes, i surrender -
i surrender to the
magnificence of now
the magnificence
the now
of love’s holy memories

feelin' the light...


come with me out of control 
into the chaos
through the ambivalence
into the
LUSTLIGHT 
come with me

do you feel it.....











listen to the beating of my heart - 
does it my love to you impart 

listen to the beating of my heart -
it was yours from the start

listen to the words of my beating heart -
 do you hear it say we’ll never part

listen to the tears of my beating heart -
do you feel it crying in the dark
   
listen to the sounds of my beating heart - 
do you feel it ripping apart

listen to the beating of my heart -
can you hear it from afar

as honor does now
our love thwart

special request for addresses...real communications for 2011


greetings, dear friends - to those who have not already received this message from me via email today - just this morning, one of my dear blogging friends in ireland posted a request for his BFs' home addresses so that he might send each of us a xmas card this year - it seems that in ireland, one does not send out xmas cards in the year in which a family member has passed on, as he had this past year - so, for this year, he wanted to send as many as possible - the whole thing of holiday cards took me right down memory lane to all the wonderful cards i received all my life, until the virtual world made such handwritten cards almost obsolete -

and so it is that i thought what a wonderful thing it would be for the NEW YEAR of 2011 - to send each of you a "real" card to your "real" home in the "real" world - hence, my request for your "real" address so that i might let you know i'm thinking of you with the new year!

livin' and driftin'...


livin' a life of what never can be

thoughts of you all that i need

a touch of the blues...


i have a touch of the blues today
what can i say
i have a touch of the blues every day
since i’ve gone away
everything’s all askew
without you
without your touch
i miss you so much

the kiss of the spinx...


come slip inside my silent sleep
and die your life in my own keep
then live your death in love's sweet heat

once upon a velvet dream...


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 in my heart
of cherry cream
where stars swim
their way upstream
and love cries out
in silent screams

there was you

in dreams...


she could feel his heart beat
in all her dreams of kisses deep
and in her heart she would keep
her dreams of when they’d meet

but it would all end in love’s defeat

Thursday, November 4, 2010

the choice...


day by day she chose to stay
locked inside her heart at bay
clad in hopes long gone dry
wonderin’ why she even tried
she dressed in dreams
all sewn up with lonely seams

night by night she chose to pray
for one more kiss one more day

and dream in waters deep


you are not mine to keep

windblown love...

 wrapped in wisps of windblown time
whispers of love from my heart’s shrine
cast away
day by day

Thursday, October 21, 2010

the space between...


you come
to me
in between
in between the words
in the spaces
before the period and after the capped first word
weaving your way in and out among verbs of action
wandering through adverbs of love defined love described
you come
to me
in the soft subtle flow of indigo thoughts
showing yourself
unveiling yourself
feeling yourself
feeling me
in indelible ink from your glorious staff
you come
to me
in words
in thoughts
in feelings

you
come

to 
me
in
between

vasana...


in another time
another place
another life
i knew your smell
your scent
your vasana  
karmic fragments floating
through time
tracing memories
memories of love
of lust
of spirit
of you
into the now
your scent
lingers still
still deep in my heart
in this time
this place
this life
this you
as i will carry it
into
the next time
the next place
the next life
the next
you

homage to love and klimt...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
i think of the love of mine
and am immobilized
my heart crystallized
in just one kiss of time
~ ~ ~




















on
gossamer
wings
in 
silent
flight
the
moon
flew
her
to
him
in
dreams
of
golden
 
 
 
liquid nights
~ ~ ~
 
 




once upon a velvet dream
in a heart of red cherry cream
where stars swim their way upstream
and love cries out in silent screams

there was you
~ ~ ~





 
 
 
 
 
 
i feel your eyes   
with no disguise
caress my longing heart
it is then at love’s bequest
we come together never part
and sweet sweet death
comes for me

floating in that crimson sea
~ ~ ~



 
come swim with me
in silent streams
of love’s soft dreams
~ ~ ~

words...


words
his words
spiraling spinning
sinking

out of sight
into my sanity
my sovereign sanity
no longer held safe in
the sanctuary of my soul
words
his words

the price...

when darkness comes to stay
with shadows night and day
and i can't find my way
come what will
come what may

for what price love did i pay

yours...


could any words but yours        
caress my broken heart
and kiss together all the parts

could any love but yours
my own life’s breath insure

pieces...


he spoke aloud no words
she heard them in his touch
he made no promises
she asked for none
he slept with honor
while she slept alone
but he gave her all he had
and for that her heart was glad

these thighs of mine...


come lay thee down
upon my soft white breasts
and with thine eyes me caress
then taste my heart and all the rest

come lay thee down 
between my thick slow thighs
these thighs of mine that cannot lie
and breathe with me a sigh turned cry
