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

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

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

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

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

More Haiku, Tanka and Micro Poetry

Haiku

Soft milky white skin
Grey eyes in circles of blue
Deep desires awaken

First snow drops appear
Sheltering in early warmth
Reflecting in light

Soft petals unfold
Silken sensual beauty
A sweet scent excites

Visual splendour
Longing for a gentle touch
To nurture and grow

Haiku afternoon
Words carefully set in place
Searching for rhythm

Loss of your smile
Absence of joy in those eyes
Solitude of pain

It’s our last best hope
A universe of wonder
#FreeBabylon5

Tanka

White frost on roof tiles
Grey smoke rises from chimneys
Blinding morning sun
Birds gather at dawn for warmth
Mist lingers in the silence

Weary eyes open
Lost moments in time unfold
Adrift and forlorn
Thoughts linger, fears forsaken
Shadows stir in morning haze

Rushing water flows
Serenity held in time
A stillness surrounds
Mists linger in morning sun
As sweet memories echo

————–

Micro Poetry

Thoughts emerge
Words written
Texts sent
Waiting in anticipation
Read with excitement
Thoughts diverge
Smiles escape
Desires met

Searching dark corners
Sheltered from storms
Smouldering embers
Hidden and alone
Caress kindles passion
Joy bursts forth
And lingers

Hiaku, Tanka and Micro Poetry

Eyes twinkle with thoughts
Hidden tears search for meaning
Your kiss, amnesia

Sadness runs on time
Journey into the unknown
No baggage in sight

————–

Released through a dream
Thoughts, at first blind become blurred
Shadows linger still
Scorched by faded memories
Melodies frozen in time

Writer’s eyes smiling
Delicate outlines emerge
Shaped through thought and time
Beauty in unspoken words
Readers longing to embrace

————–

Shared thoughts become music
Gentle caress becomes melody
A longing gaze forms harmony
Sensual kisses creates the tune
As bodies entwine in rhythm

Green eyes open in wonder
Beauty embraced in a single glance
Soft lips on silken skin excite
Desires awaken with gentle touch

Spectres move through the emptiness in silence
In the stillness shadows weep with pity as they pass
Memories cower as thoughts move through darkness

Sweet Nectar

Shadows Linger

Wine flows over my tongue
Smooth, filling my senses
My eyes caress your body
As I savor sweet nectar

The warmth of your velvet skin
Touches mine as you pass me by
Your sweet scent fills my lungs
As I exhale with a mournful sigh

Your gentle voice captivates me
Longing to taste those moistened lips
To hold you close just one more time
As I dive into those deep blue eyes

Passions flare as soft music plays
Our bodies sway, moving in rhythm
Beauty burns bright in the dim light
As shadows linger and memory fades
