Drifting Away

Lost in the Moment

White lace caresses
Silken desires ignite
Satin and lace
Becoming one
Thoughts yearning

Calmness descends
Restful mind awakens
Nerves tingle and pulse
Sensitive hairs prickle
Whispered breath excites

Blindfold isolates
Ropes end longing
Stillness engulfs
Sensations tingle
Drifting away

Words caress mind and body
Pauses heightens pleasure
Hot breath on moistened lips
Flowing
Scents fill the air
Excitement rises
Every breath pulsates

Tender flesh quivers
Lips on silken thighs
Moving higher
Just out of reach
Yearning for release

Heartbeat races
Beads of sweat pool
Relentless words spoken
Sensual and forbidden
Freeing all inhibitions

Breathing quickens
Straining for release
Lost in the moment
Contact is made
Muscles spasm
Wave after wave
Shudders through
Mind and body

Strong arms engulf
Hands caress
Guiding
Prolonging

Blindfold removed
Ropes untied
Reality shatters dream
Mind races once more
Longing to return again

Lost in the Moment

Micro Poetry Times Five – Two

In a world of darkness
Looking for forgiveness
We all need second chances
For a second sun to rise
From the ashes of our love

When grey skies make me blue
Your grey eyes see me through
Lost in their smiling embrace
All dressed in satin and lace

A secret darkness ebbs and flows
Through gardens lost in thought
Sweet scents linger in moonlight
Dew drop morning wakens gently

A timeless desire searching for hope
Passions flowing with morning dew
Shadows race the coming sun
Frozen in light until twilight dawns

Caught in a silhouette of dreams
Searching an empty wilderness
Memories fade with every thought
A glimpse into the abyss

Echoes Remain

The following poem was written for Debra Lane‘s Picture Challenge that she is hosting on her Blog Words Across the Ocean. To jump directly to all the poems for the challenge click on #PicturePromptChallenge. Below is my entry and below that is said picture.

Hollowed Out Dreams

Hovering between the sky and moon
Twilight lingers and becomes imprisoned
As dusty velvet curtains are pulled back
Revealing torment and darkness beyond

The theatre of a once vibrant life lies silent
Only echoes remain on the empty stage
An ever fading moon weeps into the mist
As shadows wander aimlessly in the gloom

Passions shelter in hollowed out dreams
Decaying desires lay strewn in the wings
A spectre of loss circles endlessly
Temptation and regret soaks the fabric of being

Waiting for the audience that never came
For the playwrights that forgot their lines
Once expectant eyes now stare back in reproach
Desolate and alone, longing for the final curtain call

An Unfinished Love Poem

All I need do is think of you
And you appear as if from a dream
Until then all I do is yearn of you
Longing to be lost in your embrace

As the moon rises everything is just right
In the stars I see the twinkle of your eyes
A never changing gaze that holds me tight
Desires whispered as gentle breezes caress

Sweet lips to taste, kisses in summer rain
Holding hands beneath cloudy skies
Huddling close on cold winter nights
Your smile brightens the darkest of days

No matter your mood or time of day
Your inner beauty shines through
With feelings no words can explain
Your loving eyes take me away

Knowing you will always be there
Until the stars fall from the sky
Lighting up eyes so blue
With a love that heals in so many ways

Haiku Ten – Six

In a tight embrace
Lost in the rhythm of you
Takes my breath away

Twilight dreams awake
Mirrored shadows become light
Meaning in rhythm

Reflecting passion
A moment frozen in time
A lingering kiss

Thoughts preserved in ink
Words silent beneath covers
Worlds of wonder

Early morning light
The melody of shadows
Forgotten moments

Seeping through the cracks
Dreams awaken from slumber
Stardust in my eyes

Late night rendezvous
Shadows move into light
Silent passions flow

A heartbeat pauses
Fragmentary moments pass
Searching for the truth

Silent melodies
Twilight lingers in pale light
Darkness over takes

A gentle rain falls
Clouds part, sun shines, birds rejoice
Spring will soon be here

Thoughts Caress Flavoured Desires

Symmetry of Desires

In tranquil moments all alone
Your thoughts merge into mine
Swirling together becoming one
Symmetry of wandering thoughts

Lost in motionless abandon
Electric surges ripple over us
Excitement rises and pulsates
Symmetry of gentle caress

Your taste lingers upon my lips
My tongue savours every drop
Your scent is with me always
Symmetry of sensual flavours

Darkness subdued and given light
Passions released and explored
With never ending possibilities
Symmetry of secret desires

Symmetry of Desires

Micro Poetry Times Five

Some things are meant to be
And some things never will be
It is the things lost in between
That make life worth living

Is this really the only rout?
Thoughts turning inside out
Memories always in doubt
Asking what is it all about
While trying not to shout

Sitting at the bottom of a glass
Swimming through lost time
Tasting passions flowing by
Imbibed thoughts wander still

Caught in this brief moment in time
Lost worlds collide, forming clarity
Fixed illusions dissipate into nothing
Words coalesce, framing perceptions

Awaken to bird song and sunlight
Eyes sticky with last night’s dreams
Soon washed away and forgotten
A morning like any other

Passions Embraced

This week’s poem for the Facebook Group Poetry in Motion, a picture prompt (see below): 

A Journey of Awakening

Life lived in seclusion, a comfort of sorts
Moments lost forever but never forgotten
Lost in a wilderness of self doubt and fear
Born from rejection and feeding on pain

A heart broken and torn from a jilted love
Left standing alone, lost in bewilderment
Habit and rosary replace wedding finery
Life of devotion for many, never for self

Prayer and study fade into the distance
Thoughts longing for ungodly caresses
Memories surface and the body yearns
Hidden desires creep forth in the night

Alone, exploring mind and body freely
Repressed passions flow in the darkness
Unholy thoughts move into the daylight
Searching for that kindred spirit to share

Hushed voices begin a journey of awakening
Habits of old discarded as sacred oaths shed
New holy vows exchanged with a silent kiss
Secret desires freed and passions embraced

Darkness ebbs away as starlight fills their eyes
The sweet scent of flowers in bloom surrounds
Floating on a feeling of euphoria and calmness
Born in pain a life in seclusion blossoms again

A Journey of Awakening

Images of Desire

A Mirror of Reality

Thoughts blur into reflection
Tears search rippled memories
Lost in a pool of indecision
Mirrored images of desire

Shadows whisper passions
Freed in momentary daydreams
Locked in darkness
Muted by hesitation

Moments of indecision
Fear and doubt combine
Feeding a hunger unsated
As loneliness takes hold

Inward reflections recede
Decisions made
Chances taken
A leap into the abyss

Thoughts reflect clarity
Memories fuel desires
Passions merge, coalesce
A mirror of inner reality
