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 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 -

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 -

could you not see.....

could you not see
what love had done to me

could you not see
for us i had to flee
could you not see
i had to set you free

can now you see
and forgive me

i feel you there...

i feel you there
you know
when you come
even when no words
are left
i can feel you here
it is as if my body ticks
in rhythm to your tocks
ticktock ticktock ticktock

you enter my mind
and your breath
brushes against my heart
and my breathing
breeds a life of its own
my nostrils quiver
as your scent
permeates the page
even when no words
are written
no ink spilled
and even when
you are not here
but there
i feel you
in your thoughts
of being here
i feel you here
when you come
in your dreams
time measured
in gasps
of the in between
your next time
and i feel you

i cannot let you near...

i cannot
let you near
you, the one i love so dear

i cannot
see the way
from this dark place and into day

i cannot
feel my heart
it’s wrapped in satan’s pitch black art

i cannot
speak aloud
the fear that drapes me like a shroud

i cannot
let you near
you, the one i love so dear

i cannot
let you near

the game...

we both knew the game
it wasn’t gonna be tame

we both knew the rules
we weren’t no fools

but when the game did end
with what could we defend

both our hearts   
our weakest parts
lay broken and blue
in a blood-filled pool

but we both knew the rules

would you like to hear  these words spoken?

when i think of you
i do not think
of your being there
of my being here
i simply think of you
