#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — The Way I Feel About You

I hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday if you celebrate Thanksgiving. And now a totally NOT holiday related flash back poem. :-)

 

The Way I Feel About You

The way I feel about you right now
I could melt into you
I could mix with you
This love is my drug
It is my sweet delicacy
This is chocolate
Honey
Butterscotch
Caramel
I could swallow your sweetness
Your essence
It is rum to me
Drunkenness inducing
A high
I float
I swim
I flow in thought to you
My elixir lies waiting on your lips
And so
I drink

For a long time after the long distance relationship ended I felt dumb for writing all these heart felt poems. Over time I have come to appreciate inspiration wherever it comes from. :-)

#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — sexless passion

sexless passion

is it possible?
the compatability to be measured
in moans
and heavy breath
without the benefit
of penetration
man and woman
tryste and writhe
move and grind
in constraint
fuelled by hope
hope of purity
of longevity
why wait?
because it is a power
over self
over flesh
in tune with a God?
in tune with inner core of person
saving a special connection
for lifelong
titillating meantime
sex without sex
feeling our skin together
our peace
our peices
our love
our lust
we touch each other
exploring
tasting
testing
and it breathes deep like sighs
it wraps us like a blanket
even though we are naked
under bare star sky
on soft grass
and we rise
and arch
in this pleasure
not needing
not wanting
loving
this

Another poem about the long distance relationship.  This poem still has the remnants of my pious celibacy in it, but with the hint of a more carnal leaning. The relationship lasted nearly two years so be prepared for quite a bit more on this subject. :-)

#MLM = #MyLifeMonday – Simple Magic

I had intended on having this blog for more personal posts as well as for my poetry but haven’t really been doing that… so… a little thought I had and decided to share…

Life is a magical thing sometimes. I look around me at the magnificent Pacific Northwest that I now live in and am amazed daily. I am small town now. Kept close to the water by my bipedal mode of transportation, I find that my living area is really an even smaller section of this tiny hamlet (The Uniontown neighborhood to be exact). Especially since it is fall now.

The nearly constant gray skies are reason to take extra vitimin D and multivitamins. Tuesday November 11th was Vetreans Day. It was a rare time with sun in the sky and yet there I was indoors at the nearest coffee shop working on my blogs. Even so… life is still filled with little bits of magic. The sun in the sky is enough wonder for me. :-)

#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — inspiration to love

inspiration to love

(added line breaks and stanzas 6/2014)

A thousand words a day roll through my mind in thoughts of you
the gentle joy of my heart is my sweetest food of my spirit

and I breathe…
deep long sustaining breaths from the depths of my soul
movements of mind have rendered me your willing servant of mutual pleasure
sensual conversations have made me naked to my very soul

I dream of you…
I picture the bliss of tongue-to-tongue exchanges of fervor
I feel a passionate wanting in my core that lingers when our voices part

you are a sweet part of my peace
a pleasant corner of my mind
so I am smitten and infatuated
I am driven to seek this positive thing I find with you…

my inspiration to love

In May of 2005 I began a long distance relationship that inspired a LOT of poetry. This is just the first of many.

#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — I can’t help but love you

I can’t help but love you

I can’t help it
I can’t help but love you
Or should I say I am deeply in love with the art you create
Would that be more accurate
But…
I can’t help it
I can’t help but love you
To think of you
The creative
Wonderful
Introspective
Social
You
Imagining the sound of your voice
The tone and tenor of your song
Is there anything you can’t do?
I feel your power
Your sweet artist soul
Waging war with mediocrity
And yet I don’t even know you
Not really
I read these lines online
Trying to find a way into your mind
Hoping to find the key
The key to hold you
Wanting to be where you are
But glad you are so far away
So unreachable
So untouchable
And yet…
So loveable
I can’t help it.
I can’t help but love you

This poem was mostly about a poet who came to perform from out of state and violinist that featured at a local event but was also about pretty much anyone whose art I appreciated.
