holy tokens...

drench yourself in words unspoken

holy tokens of my heart now broken

these things i cannot say

on this or any day

sacraments to hold you tight

prayers to wing you through the night

lay them down within your soul
and wed you then my love made whole

o' holy grace...

whispers of your shadow sweep 'cross my lonely face
takin' me to that other place
the place of blood red moons
where stars come out at noon
and mornin's go to bed
with nothin' left unsaid
shadows of your whispers sweep 'cross my lovin' face
takin' me to that other place
the place of
holy grace

asked the north wind of the gypsy...

so who are you

i cannot bear the world to see
who i'm not but want to be

i’ve just been playing solitaire
to live in love i do not dare

while i profess to love forever
i’ve loved another really never

i know you know it’s been a while
and i cannot resist your smile

so who are you

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

liquid moonlight...

moonlight spilled onto her skin
seeping its way to her heart again
 filling her sleep with its liquid gold
keeping her safe from the dreary cold
of nights no longer warmed by him
and days no longer light but dim

the web of woe...

a web of their own they did weave
when first they loved and did deceive
for love was not theirs to conceive
they gave no thought to those who’d grieve
and lose their light from that night’s deed
a web of woe did they weave
when first they loved and did deceive

where none could see...

in our hearts where none could see
our love was free - free to be
bursting shoving upward it did soar
to the gods we begged for more
like this frigid mount of heavenly blue
hidden from all who viewed
under the deep vast sweep
our love
did we

you speak to me...

you speak to me

in words of painted fire
adding flame to my desire
lay me now on that pyre
and take my love entire

you move in me
in words of liquid red
with nothing left unsaid

fire in the night
sky burnin’ bright
you my heart ignite
till the mornin’ light

you speak to me
my aphrodite

i remember you...

i remember you...

where was it?       
i cannot remember the place
when long ago a minute or so
i first saw your face
but i cannot forget you
the way your eyes touched my soul
with never a spoken word
and made me feel once whole

i cannot forget you
the way your smile caressed my heart
with never the touch of hand
i knew we ne’er would part


Sunday, August 14, 2011

the thought of you...

the thought of you
possesses and caresses my heart
how could it be that we had to part
leaving us both broken and blue

the thought of you
torments and tortures my soul
how could it be that time took its toll
making its way long overdue

the thought of you
teases and taunts to my core
how could it be we had to say no nevermore
leaving forever shut loves sweet door

but not
the thought of you ~

you let me be...


the things i’d long forgot
held me close untied the knots
without a scheme without a plot

you gave me back
who i was before
and didn’t know no more
the one who’d shut that door

you got me back on track
of who i used to be
who i was to me
the gypsy wild banshee

you let me be

is there...

is there no time for us
that we must love and part

is it a sin for us
to love with both our hearts

is there no way for us
to be in this life’s cusp

is there no place for us
before we turn to dust

two broken hearts...


in that moment of time stood still
in the silence of my screaming heart                      
i felt the sting of satan’s will
when from our love i did depart

and so i live in darkness void
where day is night and night is dead
with both our hearts now destroyed
and nothing left to be said

since from our love i did depart
leaving behind two broken hearts

the vault...

the sealed vault my life has become
when to your touch i did succumb
dark chambers brimmed with love un-lived
acts done acts not done to forgive 
lost in moments of love supreme

savage screams from yesterdays dreams

Friday, July 22, 2011

the door...

you bid my heart
to enter there

where no one else
had tread before

and so it did
without a care

then with your touch
i shut the door

Saturday, July 16, 2011

spread your wings...

spread your wings
unfold and open wide
fly me o’er that great divide
to the place where angels sing
spread your wings
do not thy spirit hide
fly me where the gods reside
to the place where passion clings

spread your wings
let my soul with thee abide
fly me to that crimson tide
to the place where love’s supreme

of midnight blue...

come to me in midnight blue
to sing to me your sweet sweet song
and never ever love be gone
come to me in midnight dew

to place a kiss upon my lips
and then to lay upon my hips

come to me in midnight schemes
to give to me your heart’s love
when light shines down from above
till all our sins shall be redeemed

come to me in midnight dreams
come to me in midnight screams

of midnight blue

dawn's embrace...

hold me close
hold me tight
hold me through
the vicious night
and if the morn
should find you gone
i shall love you more
with the dawn

the etching...

the night i etched your name
    upon my heart
i knew in that first kiss
    that fate would have us part
but not before love came
    and put the dark to rest
to lay us down deep entwined
    your hand upon my breast

Friday, July 8, 2011

you would be mine...

from the begins of time
you would be mine

if the seas did not us separate
if the winds did not blow us apart
and if the gods betrayed us not

till the end of time
you would be mine

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

if i go away...

if i go away
if i stay away
will you love me
come what may
for my heart will stay
if i go away
if i stay away
i love you

your smile...

come lay beside me for a while
and let me kiss your lovin' smile...

Monday, June 13, 2011

him - and you...

you have seen my naked heart
clad only in the sins of my past
remnants of the devil's lambaste
and you turned away not

you have tasted the dark green bile
spit from the belly of my severed soul
splotches of satan's soiree
and it reviled you not

you have borne witness to the atrocities
acted against the innocents by my dark twin
leaving the pieces to be buried again
and it frightened you not

you have felt the screams of my victims
wrenched from the hollow of my own heart
slivers of silent offenses
and you shrank back not

and he
he who has lived the golden life
who has never slept with the slick black steel
he would forgive me
and love me still
     but he would know me not
but you
you have walked the shadow streets
streets worn by my footprints
you would see no need to forgive
and would love me still
you would love me then in all my sins
     you would know me now
even then

the call of the open road...

the next few weeks will find the caravan on the move
so i'll be in and out of cyberland but would love to have you
scratch little notes in the sand, there by the fire, while i'm gone - 
you know how i love hearing from you -
see you soon - 
till then, peace and love -

pieces of 1975...

take my arms
my love
shelter from
the storm

you need
not ask
my love
for what
is mine
is yours

take my lips
my love
taste till
you are filled

you need
not want
my love
for they
are mine
to give

take my heart
my love
we need not
ever part   

you need
not need
my love
for love is
mine to give

there are no strings attached
no chains to hold you here

for love, my love,
my only claim

if i but could - from 1975...

if i but could
take the hurt
from out the wound
that lingers there
if i but could
take the rage
from out the deep
that dwells within
if i but could
take the sorrow
that sucks your life
if i but could
my love
i surely

the sight...

you take my breath away
i cannot help but stare

there is no end in sight
to the love i see there

i cannot help but stare

for you were always there
just a touch away

but it took love
to turn the night away

i cannot help but star

the poem...

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

crimson sighs...

hold me
with your eyes

then lay
your dreams
between my thighs

and feel my
crimson sighs

- this piece is also a result of the same dream as in the post below -

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


last night
i lay
in the imprint
of your dreams
upon my bed
this morning
i woke
to the imprint
of your heart
upon my own
- these words are the result of a dream i had last night - a dream in which i felt the imprint of another's body beside me and dreamed that i needed to write these words down - when i woke, there on my bed, scribbled in my hand were  these words -
