Searchin’

Gone Too Long

Shouts ring out all along The Boundary
Ghostly voices echoing from days gone by
Moments lost for ever, fading to twilight
Lost my girl and my dreams somewhere along the way

Packin’ up what cares I have left
Saying goodbyes with tearful reminders
I’ll be on that morning train headin’ south
Gonna leave this dead end, good for nothing town

There was a time that nothing but you mattered
Getting lost in your arms and favoured charms
Knowing our love would last forever
But even forever ends someday

Gotta get out before tears take hold
Before time passes and my poor heart breaks
I’ll be walking toward the horizon from now on
Searchin’ for forgotten dreams gone too long

Gone Too Long

Love’s First Blush

Lanterns in the Sky

Under the spell of love’s first blush
Like a shot of an adrenaline rush
We were young, we were strong
Without fear it was wrong

Driving down the coast
Radio playing memories
Of summertime romance
Did we have a chance
When it came to our dance?

It’s not just a teenage love song
On the patio with lanterns in the sky
Our love was just a song away
Sharing a kiss before we said goodbye

Thinking how it used to be
Those times are close to me
For the love we could not suppress
And the softness of your caress

The heat of your touch
The beat of your heart
The rush of your breath
The mist in your eyes

When you walk into a room
With the scent of your perfume
Words flow from my heart
Hoping never to depart

You take off your dress
In the cool of the night
No need to assume
For a love we will consume

Thinking how it used to be
Those times are close to me
For the love we could not suppress
And the softness of your caress

The heat of your touch
The beat of your heart
The rush of your breath
The mist in your eyes

Under the spell of love’s first blush
Like a shot of an adrenaline rush
We were young, we were strong
Without fear it was wrong

Thinking how it used to be
Those times are close to me
For the love we could not suppress
And the softness of your caress

The heat of your touch
The beat of your heart
The rush of your breath
The mist in your eyes

The softness of your lips
The touch of your finger tips
The sweet smell of your embrace
Our bodies entwine and move in rhythm

Blessings of your caress
Darkness moves in a trance
Our bodies become one
To the tune of a slow dance

Thinking how it used to be
Those times are close to me
For the love we could not suppress
And the softness of your caress

The heat of your touch
The beat of your heart
The rush of your breath
The mist in your eyes

Driving down the coast
Radio playing memories
Of summertime romance
Did we have a chance
When it came to our dance?

Memories You Once Had

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

Moments

Carefree school days
Long summer nights
Magical Christmas mornings
And becoming lost in a book
Are memories you once had

Excitement of your fist kiss
Followed by heartbreaks
Getting your first job
And moving out on your own
Are memories you once had

Finding the love of your life
Happiness on your wedding day
Making a home for both of you
And planning for the future
Are memories you once had

Holding your first born
Joy of her first steps
First day of school
And all those other “firsts”
Are memories you once had

Sleepless nights as she grew up
Full of pride on graduation day
Sadness when she left home
And tears on her wedding day
Are memories you once had

Delight in holding your grandson
Devastated when your parents passed away
Growing old surrounded by those you love
And the pain of loosing your beloved
Are memories you once had

Confused as past moments fade
Feeling scared and all alone
Familiar faces are now strangers
And you are no longer safe at home
….are memories you now have

Moments

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

The Melody of Rain

I know Where Happiness Lies

My Red-Haired Katie

To be sure I know where happiness lies
It’s in the arms of my red-haired Katie
The prettiest gal you ever did see
With smiling grey eyes and milky white thighs

It was under a starlit sky we knew
That this love we felt was ever so true
Holding each other tight all through the night
Making a vow that we would never part

We will be wed on this mid-summer’s day
And with that there is not much more to say
Except that I know my happiness lies
Between the thighs of my red-haired Katie

My Red-Haired Katie

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

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

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
