A Silhouette of Dreams

This week’s poem for Facebook Group: Poetry in Motion.

The Melody of Rain

With a minstrel’s heart she sings
Passions flow from knowing lips
Fingers caress with gentle touch
Caught in a silhouette of dreams

Moonlight moves toward slumber
Storm clouds choke morning light
Melody of rain mingles with music
And shadows dance in silver mists

In my minds eye over in an instant
But a lifetime felt on body and soul
Desires released and free to wander
A perfect moment of unending bliss

Haiku Ten – Eight

This haiku welcomes
Musical orchid delight
In verse melodies

Connections through time
Directing education
Emancipation

Words ignite desires
Passions flow beneath covers
Pleasures of reading

A spring flower blooms
Smiling eyes bursting with joy
Beauty in season

Reasons forgotten
Light dims with every heartbeat
Your touch haunts me still

Captured by your smile
Laughing eyes show me the way
Darkness never dawns

Questions surround me
Answers move into focus
Silence without tears

Laughter without tears
Silence without loneliness
Nothing without pain

Restless thoughts ramble
Shadows whisper endlessly
Silhouettes dancing

On a stormy night
An Old Dark House mystery
Imagination

Washing Dreams Away

Smiling Eyes

It was a fairy tale romance
Right out of books of old
Two meeting in the dark of night
Parting before the morning light

She knew what he needed
She knew how to tease him
She knew how to please him

Darkest desires straining for release
Rapturous innocence breaking free
Flowing from smiling eyes
And tender quivering thighs

He knew what she wanted
He knew how to kiss her
He knew how to touch her

It was her desire
It was her pleasure
It was her release

Giving everything and leaving nothing behind
Lost in twilight that washes dreams away
Frozen laughter stifled by misplaced passion
Sentenced to darkness without reprieve
Obsessed with words that deceive

She will never forget
She will never forgive
She will never be free

Lost in sorrow
Lost in pain
Lost in tears

Smiling Eyes

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

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

Haiku Ten – Three

With gentle caress
Tender pink petals unfold
Beauty in full bloom

Silken pink surrounds
As sweet nectar flows freely
Beauty holds me tight

Blue eyes wrap round me
Glimpsed depths, promises so fine
We’ve only begun

Tender buds exposed
Sweet scent excite the senses
Visual splendour

Gentle hands nurture
Delicate beauty displayed
Intoxicating

Open and exposed
In the moment stillness flows
Anticipation

Silken threads combine
Forming words from thoughts divine
Rhythm of ribbons

Notes from faraway
With thoughts of friends long ago
All but forgotten

Thoughts into action
Desires waken and yearning
Exciting moments

Morning eyes greet me
Just before all the dreams fade
Spellbound in silence

Haiku Ten

Snowdrops peeking through
Glistening in morning dew
Under skies so blue

Low cut evening gown
Flowing satin, silken thighs
Gliding through my dreams

Eyes wide in wonder
Beauty moves into focus
Secrets to explore

In thoughts we are bound
Reaching into the darkness
A promise in verse

Caressing desires
Words excite silent passions
Longing for release

A stem strong but bowed
Reaching ever for the light
In flush of full bloom

Sad eyes reflect joy
Tears feed on silent passions
Shared thoughts bring release

Gentle touch excites
Searching for the words to dream
Thoughts merge and mingle

Searching in the mist
Memories deepen your joy
Like a stolen kiss

Lost winds search for home
A silent breeze caresses
Dreams half remembered

Ribbons of Silk

Bellow is my posting for this week’s prompt on the Facebook Group: Poetry in Motion.

Borrowed Words

Seduction timed and on cue
Passions borrowed
Desires rehearsed
Lost in darkness
Cold and grey

Disguising a bitter taste
A chocolate cover envelops
Wrapped in red satin and lace
Tied with ribbons of silk

The story unfolds
Tales rewritten and retold
Shifting syntax
Underlies the difficulty
With loss of insight
From words that no longer excite
But safewords nonetheless

Pages torn from a book
Scene after scene
Learned to perfection
Yearning to be directed
Guided and comforted

Alone and unsure
Imagination drifts
Open and exposed
As secrets are revealed
With words borrowed
Longing for release

Still the Rambling Thoughts

This is an erotic poem inspired by….Well now, that would be telling wouldn’t it?

Contentment

As the clock ticks
Thoughts begin to wander
Fingers begin to ponder
Silken hose
Soft skin
Sweet scents

Hands slide on quivering thighs
Silent ripples of pleasure course
Tender caress with strong hands
Spreading, opening and exposing

Cool air ripples over electric nerves
Heart races
Breath quickens
Anticipation

Ropes tied
Bonds forged
Blindfold darkens
Words whispered
Soft caresses
Still the rambling thoughts
Directing
Guiding
Nurturing
Shaping

Desires ebb and flow
Open to the core
No where to hide
Exposed
Giving freely
Surrendering

Total trust
Total freedom
Total release
Taken further than thought possible

Senses freed
Thoughts vanish
Darkness banished
Passions flow
Contentment reigns

Haiku and Micro Poetry

Haiku

Shadows flicker still
Silent lives move on the screen
Nitrate in my soul

Passions creeping forth
Thoughts caressing lost desires
Tears and morning dew

Searching dark corners
Words caressing hidden thoughts
Basking in the warmth

Gentle touch wakens
Tender folds, hidden beauty
Sweet scent envelopes

Cream rises and drips
Tongue flicks out to capture drops
Morning coffee poured

Thoughts hidden, released
Doors opened, passions explored
Lost desires caressed

————

Micro Poetry

Flesh quivers
Pulsates
Lips part
Moisten
Swollen and tender
Tingling spreads
Shudders begin
Building

Breath quickens
Heart races
Muscles spasm
Passions release
And flow
Sweet scent surrounds
Envelops
Intoxicates

Melodies linger through the night
Untouched instruments awake
Taunt strings hum with gentle caress
Pleasures long forsaken aroused

As I walk through the memories of our life
Shadows reflect our lost and broken thoughts
Tears crash into the solitude of my loneliness

Thoughts revolve in shimmering twilight
Memories whirl in tepid reproach
Neglected images and blurred memories
Linger in silence
