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!

the moonlight tonight...

the moonlight tonight
sweeps cross the sky
with its magnificent glory
trickling its way through the windows
of my soul over the
debris of my loneliness
leaving me naked across
the bed of my thoughts of you
caressing my nakedness with
its nightlight as i lay exposed
for you to see to touch to feel
with your thoughts
in your dreams
from wherever you are tonight
from where that same moonheat
beams down upon your own heart’s nudity
your body’s glory defined in its light
your lovelust yearning to be set free
to be with me in my own bed
of my thoughts of you
your energy now washing away
the debris of my loneliness
under the moonlight tonight

lost now...

lost now -

the aroma of his light
that once had lit the way
out of her own darkness
the fragrance of his love
cast in a thousand wisps of windblown time
and with the loss of these
these filaments of her
there remained
only her mind
and her heart
her mind now shattered into fragments
emptied of its life flow
it, too, began to disintegrate to dissolve
into tarnished memories
memories tainted by that demon time
fading into the forest of forgotten faces
leaving only her heart
the heart that once beat to the drums
of ancient mariners
that beat as one with his
now slowed to shallow pulses
flickering dimly in the night of her sorrow
disappearing into the dank void
of what had been -

lost now

the meeting...

come to me
in the night
with my soul ignite

glide your way
into my bed
whisper words unsaid

slide your way
into my sleep
    where love we’ll keep

for who knows
when and where
    we may meet

besides in
midnight dreams
    of vanilla cream

the wedding...

lay thee down on the river bed

where lust and love are truly wed
strip you off your stiff starched shirt
and off with me my virgin skirt
let’s find our freedom in the dirt

as we lay us down on the river bed

feeling my way...

feeling my way

out of the day

into the night

where you wait in

my shadow dreams

of melted licorice

between the seams 

of soft ruby lips

first kiss...

the night i etched your name
upon my lonely heart

i knew in that first kiss
that fate would have us part

but not before love’s silent touch
held both our souls in clutch

those lips...

and where were they now
those lips
her lips
lips that spoke
only love
only truth
lips that held his heart
promised him tomorrow
tasted his sorrow
fondled his spirit
her lips
that had disappeared
into the

where were they now
those lips

the lips

the tundra...

the sun sifted down down down

shedding spreading its raw heat
but it could not penetrate
the frozen tundra that was her life

through fields of cobalt blue...

sorrows that have crippled you
will soon give you wings
to fly through fields of cobalt blue
and hear the angels sing

silent streams...

come lay with me in vanilla dreams
where love flows free in silent streams
die with me that sweet sweet death
then live again in passion’s breath

shades of blue...

in midnight dreams

i wing my way to you
in shades of bluest blue
on paths where angels flew
and there i lay with you
on beds of fairy dew

in midnight dreams

the corruption...

you have
corrupted me
with your innocence

leaving my soul
with no defense

tainting my heart
with your purity


loving me for
the me of me

you have
corrupted me

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

is there a place...

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
