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!

would we?

























love had us in a trance

would we do it again
if given the chance

would we risk it again
just to dance the dance

love has us in a trance

still


and
always
will

this crimson vessel...

heart’s so full
of dark gray clouds
got me in its pull
wanna scream out loud
                       
but sound don’t come
to a heart heavy as mine
thoughts turned numb
stayin’ alive just to pine


seems the skies above
feel the same bleak way
weepin’ my loss of love
drippin’ sadness night and day

rains come down
deep into my soul
so ‘fraid i’m gonna drown
and it stings me so

trickles down thru my flesh
strippin’ ‘way all that’s left
leavin’ nothin’ but an empty mess
like a sinister theft

hurricane winds of despair
leavin’ my mind tossed about
can’t rebuild can’t repair
this crimson vessel

full of doubt

deep within...

















my want of
you
lies deep
deep within
too deep
within
to let loose
the salty tears
leaving trails
of all my fears
stuck deep

deep within
too deep
within
 


my want of
you

bello d'oro...

sometimes in the light of day
i see your face in the most unusual way



sometimes in the dark of night
i feel your touch in the most usual way

sometimes in the here and now
i recall that you are no longer here


now

slipping softly...


slip your way softly
into my sleep
make your way there
ever so deep
then seal my dreams
with your sweet kiss
and let’s our love reminisce

if i go away...















if i go away
if i stay away

will you love me
still

come what may


for my heart will stay
      
if i go away
if i stay away

because
i love you

still


and
i
always
will

your words...























your words
somehow 

have slipped 
into my own shadows 
capturing all that is there
including the tears

livin' our love...





















we lived our love
the way we wanted to
and listened naught
to what those others do

we loved our love
the way we needed to
and listened most
to our own hearts’ ado

then love me here...








if you cannot love me there
there
in the land of life and breath
then love me here
here
in the land of indigo blood
and velum flesh

here
where your caresses
scorch this parchment skin
here
where your lips
meet mine in crimson slips
here
where words unspoken
are screamed in paper dreams

here
on this paper
where the ink flows

like the rivers run
to my heart

 
here

feel me cry...







do you feel me cry
in the day
from this dark place
i hide in sin
and ache to find
my way back in
where love alone
has its way

do you feel me cry
in the night
from this deep place
i hide in woe
where whispers
wrap me head to toe
and angels
spread their wings
in flight
.
do you feel me cry
.
.

love unlived...

you penetrate my dreams
permeate my silent screams
and glide into the ancient streams
                    
where love holds always your invite
and darkness holds its secrets tight
but like the wind regrets take flight

what has happened to my sight
did vision die without the light
and leave me now to this sad plight
nothing is as it seems
nothing left to redeem

when will it ever end
when will it ever end


never
he whispers
never
ever.

to speak...


you speak to me

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

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

fire in the night
sky burnin’ bright
you my heart ignite
till the mornin’ light
 
 
you speak to me
your aphrodite
