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!

his words
spiraling spinning

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

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

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

since you...

nothin’s the same
time fuels the flame
no one to blame
fate gone lame
memories remain
nothin’s the same

since you

in shadows...

in shadows
with you
i live
in shadows
with you
i love
in shadows
but shadows

the rat and the trap...

she was his rat
he had set the trap
with his thoughts
his words
and she
she had built the cage
the heart cage
with her need      
with her want
the door of the cage
stayed open
no need to shut
each word of his
each insinuation
each implication
of each word of his
kept the rat there
inside the cage
of her own making
she dared not escape
would not escape
for how could she
each word
nourished her soul
fed her spirit
without them
she did not exist
could not exist
round and round
the treadmill kept turning
and she kept running
round and round
with each syllable
each inflection
of his thought
in each word
sent by him
to the rat
in her cage

phantom limbs...

lust defined
flesh on flesh

love confined 
thoughts of him
draped ‘cross her mind
like phantom limbs

like butterflies...

like butterflies in the spring 

memories of him on the wing 

flitting here there everywhere 

that she still loved him she did forswear

but life from him now apart 

left love held hostage by her heart

the constant lover...

the moon my constant lover
but under its glare my heart hovers
hiding from the light it casts
shrinking from my darkened past
