Love’s come of age

You pondered the dimensions Of his myriad intentions, His relentless insistence To erode your resistance, It was Love’s masquerade, In Lust’s big parade; You danced while he played A true lover’s charade. Now the day has gone black Your love has gone slack. Your heart must decide Where it will always reside: Shall you stay at … Continue reading Love’s come of age


Once We Were

I originally posted this poem three years ago. There has been some interest in my verse this year, so I thought I would re-publish it with some minor edits.  As always, comments are welcome.  Orbs once we were ... Suspended in glistening space Brightly afire and white ablaze Held only by primordial grace Then drawn … Continue reading Once We Were

Until home

It’s a too hard road For a too young soul. I’m sorry for the questions you ask. I’m sorry for the answers I have. I’d give you the moon, I have only the truth Can you believe What you can’t see? He holds my hand as I’m holding yours, Through our space, Through your rage. … Continue reading Until home

Title in search of poem

The answers have flown their cages In search of finer questions The window spurns the sun I alone remain I am no slave to daylight Nor a fool for the moon I turn my face from the portal And open to the world. And so my truth begins.

Love’s Dark Twin

Clothe yourself in darkness Sewn from your soul’s abyss Then I can finally take you With my aching, starving kiss Bring our love to shadows Where haughty spirits stay And we shall dance with them As God’s feral gypsies play This is not shameful This is not sin It is a lover's song I hear from … Continue reading Love’s Dark Twin

Letter to Noah

The flood is futile It cannot clean The truest soil That lives within We are born to fly And born to fall Born to sin From grace to fall But soar we can And try we must Briefly behind Leave earthly dust In far greater deep Our souls do dwell We often choose To allow … Continue reading Letter to Noah

Stealthy Love

Joy slips in Like a spy Through the halls Of their disbelief My prison walls For now. Love soars over Like a wind Above the decay Of their blasphemy My prison cells For now. Your smile encodes the possible Your kiss ensures tomorrow Remind me of God and Heavens Victory of the future Over now. … Continue reading Stealthy Love

Apprentices of Alchemy

This is still a work in progress. My last poem took me six months, and I've got another under construction for a year. This one said something I needed to say, though.  Feedback welcome.  Apprentices to alchemy of the soul Send poison from their lips to our bones Once wiser wizards healed hearts stone to gold … Continue reading Apprentices of Alchemy

Once We Were

Orbs once we were Suspended in glistening space Brightly afire and white ablaze Held only by primordial grace Then drawn we were By our pulsing explosive phase And slowly together we came Held by love’s orbiting embrace Until we discovered the world beneath And heard the call of life's mortal needs  Too quick by gravity … Continue reading Once We Were
