Long ago

Once I gave you mignonette
I bet you thought I would forget
Forget that time those days those hours
But sweet to me, preserved like flowers
Pressed and faded, lingering long
I pluck them new, enjoy the scent
then tuck them back, a memory spent...

BUFFY: help from friends:emmiegray


and down the rabbit hole I fell
well I got too close to the edge. again.
I know it's a bad place but there is something familiar
yes, he does not at times like me even
I am sensible shoes
I was convenient, make his life better
There is no passion in that
What did I expect, he said, he said.
She was the one, the one beside which 'all else pales'
Not my words.
And I'm not brave enough to break free.
'I am her and she is me'
And I am...?
I don't know...
Something better than what anyone may suspect.

Cynical love poem #987

A trick
A ruse
A subterfuge
And so god created lust
Plumage, light refracting
Look at all the pretty
Deoxyribonucleic acid
He wrote us a harlequin
A schoolgirl's notion
Schoolgirls cannot create,
Sustain worlds...or can they...
"I want a soda" the little boy whined
A wind-up toy
And he got it
So lust or dust it seems
What could be better?
A different world.
I want I want I want
A world without desire.....

Vampire's Kiss

How close can you hold me
Breathe for me
I will hear it pounding
As an ocean
How long can you hold me
Desire sees itself in the mirror
As it mists over, warm, besotted
Leaves a kiss
That seems to disappear
once it's cooled
But it's still there, always there
One more loooong-drawn sigh away...
What was it brought to life
With that kiss?
Oh!...that kiss...!
Under the satin
And whalebone, beating
...Something fierce and hungry
Starved and half-mad
At long last a feast at hand
More and more and...
Nay, I will let you rest my love
You're going to need it.

Love defined (again)

You want love defined
The least definable thing ever
a feeling just beyond reach
A warmth in our breast
Almost a pain...
it catches in my throat and
Makes me weep
What is it? What is it not...
The self-sacrificing unconditional noble ideal
A disguise
Underneath it's no more than:
This feels good
You make me feel good
You keep me warm
You do not bore me
I derive pleasure from looking at
The line of your cheekbone
The art of your hands
Hearing you whisper: "sweet dreams, love"
I'll melt of happiness then
Not noble, nothing sacrificed
Yet at night I transform
I become that part of you
That was missing...
Love is only a theory, a dream
...shouldn't you be kissing me?

LOST Shannon girl

another 'Life is Short' poem.....

I'm not a patriot
I'm a gravestone
I'm not a child, mother, wife
I'm dust.
I'm fireworks, a bell ringing
A wave crashing
Consumable, consumed, bright and warm.
At the moment.
Trapped inside the moving vehicle
Of a mind,
Mindless, mindful, mind you now
I take none of it seriously...
What I was
What I will be
...not so different from what I am now.
Just let it be something
