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!

your name...

the road may call your name
but i still whisper it
on nights of golden moon

i keep it in my box
of things that mean the most
and take it out at times

to hold it to my lips
to savor it once more
as if each time the last 

and in my heart i sing
loves sweetest song to you
the one that calls your name

so i can whisper it
on nights of golden moon


so i can whisper it

[thank you JTB]

i came to you...

it is true
i came
to you

i came
seeking all
fearing not the fall
wanting the core
needing more
of your nectar
your sweet elixir

fly me through the night
take me to your light

the light of darkness...

the darkness

shut out
the day

leave that
world behind
weave your way
through my skin
into my heart
where time
stands still


darkness is
the beacon

guiding me
the path

to you
to us
to our time
our world
the world
of darkness

do they?

do your eyes 
glimmer simmer 
at the sight of her
does your pulse 
quicken thicken 
like sweet sugar syrup
at the thought of her
do your hands 
confess caress
her steamy smell 
on your chest

as they do

the fern...

all those words

in your smile

like the lofty fronds
of a lush exotic fern



a taste of the impossible...

once she had tasted him

how could she return
to the ordinary

the poem...

he was
no longer there
no longer with her
no longer a part of her
now gone forever
forever lost
no longer in her life
how could life exist at all
without him

could it perchance
a dream have been
but no
neither a dream for if so
she could will herself
never to awaken
instead she was lost
left alone
as if he had died
no longer existed
no longer a man
now forever gone
he must
   have been 
a poem

my liquid song...

i sing myself a song of you
from flowing words and liquid notes

a song in which our lives are one
and our true love is sung aloud

frozen dreams...

i carve myself
a dream of you
from frozen time
and steamy thoughts
a dream in which
the world is ours

and love need not
be slept away

uncovered keepsakes...

things kept
things covered up
keeping things

one of a kind
trinkets of time
trinkets of mine
now just a shrine

once tucked away
not to be seen by the light of day

things i kept
as i wept

pieces of mine
pieces of time

threadbare thoughts
kept for naught

a ring of love left unworn
lives apart shredded and torn

a string of words left unsaid
love unlived left for dead

a strand of memory left unfilled
might as well have all been killed

things i keep
while i still weep

these are the keeping things
things covered up


for my heart’s sake...

~ please don't miss today's other post below ~

can't you see...

can't you see
all that is good in me
i see in you
we are one-no longer two
you are that part of me
i always longed to be
can't you see...
