Dear Diary, Part I: Love’s Funny Games

Posted in Dear Diary Poems, Life, Love & Romance on December 20, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Dear Diary,
Love has gone and played a trick on me.
Making me love him more today
Than in the days that have long since
Past and gone.
Up until that night he took me into his arms,
I had forgotten what it felt like to be held by him.
There was the passionate sensation
That flowed through me
With each time his lips touched mine,
A sense of renewed love and faith
That our lives can go on in one accord
From these days going forward.

We have suffered such heartache,
Have seen so many tears fall,
That these last days
Has made the time we have left
Here on Earth
Worth fighting for.

We have recognized our wrong doings,
Have struggled through the days of unhappiness,
Only to find our way back
To the guiding light
Of unending happiness
For the rest of our golden years.
And for the rest of my life
I will hold his hand
Through the good times.
Through the bad times.
Through the times
When life feels uncertain.

He has missed me
Into a broken heart
And loved me into
A new salvation.
He has glorified our existence of love,
To where I have begun
Worshiping the air he breathes.

I find myself drifting off into space,
Lost in dreams of him
Taking center stage in my heart,
And dancing minuets on my soul.
It makes me forget why I ever wanted to go away.
It makes me forget why I ever wanted him
To let me go.

Love has played funny games with my emotions,
Caught in his tenderness
And sweet caress
That I fell in love with him all over again.
He whispered we always loved each other
Just needed to express it
In ways we understood,
And in that single moment I wanted to cry,
But my heart was so touched,
That I just soaked up the words he spoke,
Blanketing my heart,
To carry them for as long as
We walk hand in hand to the end of time.

I’d Love to Hate You

Posted in Love & Romance on April 11, 2013 by Poetic Flow

I want to hate you past
The day you were born.
Forget I ever knew your name.

I want to forget the day
When we first kissed.
That first day we ever made love.

I want to forget the day
When you were an obssession,
When you were that one thing
I could not do without,

I want to forget that moment
When you entered my innocence,
And made me fall in love with you.
It was then you took me into your soul
And we became one to one.

You send me into this
Sweetness of hating you,
And yet the reason for loving you
Reign like fire in my soul
And remains all to real.
Is letting you go supposed to
Hurt so much?

I want to tiptoe out of your world,
Taking all of the memories of me
Out of your mind,
So if in the next life
Our paths should cross,
You will not know my name.

In the midnight hour
When I am alone with you.
You make me feel like
Time has stood still for us.
You take every last breath of me.

I ask in the time to come
Will we grow old and gray together,
But I can only see days
Of tears ahead
Disguised in the falling rain.

You bring me to this
Sweet madness of hating you,
Even down to the last caress
And the last taste of your sweet kisses.

I want to hate you past
The day you were born.
Be nothing more than
A passing fantasy.

In the midnight hour,
I want to tiptoe out of your world
To find what it was I lost
Many years ago.
To become re-acquainted with
Who I am and who I have aspired to be.

Good night lover,
We knew each other well,
But it’s time to put it all to an end.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
But now I must bid thee farewell.

Talking to the Moon

Posted in Life, Love & Romance, Pain, Poetry on February 26, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Pondering the thoughts
Of yesterday’s time.
The wind blowing around
The thoughts in mind of
Where in this place we are.
Somewhere on Lovers Lane
That love I held strong in
My soul for you has become displaced.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon
Trying to find where it is
I lost my way.

There is no doubt
In these feelings I feel
That I do still love you from
The bottom of my heart,
But when my eyes envision your face
From a distance when you are not here,
I don’t see the same man I loved
When we first walked down
Flower paved roads.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon,
Trying to find where it is
We go from here.

I will never ask you
If your love for me has changed.
I am not accustom to the words
Fear and rejection for they
Hold me captive to my own misery.
You once gave me
What the world could never give me,
Your undying love and devotion,
Your affection that grounded me
And made me whole,
Your warm embrace that protected me,
Your tender kiss that soothed me,
Erasing my troubles for just that moment.
I never feared loneliness because
You were always there,
Your songs of faith and devotion
Sheltered me from those who
Never cared for me.

We were one in the eyes of those
Who would see us.
Our laughter filled the air
Soaring on the tail end of the wind.
My heart used to skip a beat
Whenever you weren’t around,
And I slept sleepness nights
If you weren’t at my side.
That was when you and I were one.
When love was something we had
To hold on to.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon
Fighting back the tears,
Regretting the days that have
Pushed us a part.

If in a day,
You want to blame me for the missteps
Our love has taken.
Let me lay down my pride and selfishness,
And take the beatings your words
Shall give me.
The harshness only you know how
To inflict on a woman’s soul.
If in this time your forgiveness
Goes unfounded,
Then let me go into a world of the unknown
Where I will not back track to find you,
Only to keep moving forward
Into happiness bliss
To find where it is I truly belong.
Just don’t keep me here
To remind you of those things you’ve lost
Because if you open your eyes
You are a reminder of the things I’ve lost 
That time can never replace.

And as I sit here
Talking to the moon,
I can only make one simple wish
To ask if in this lifetime it is not
Meant for you and I to share in
What we’ve wanted for so long,
That we equally set each other free
To go into our own
Corners of different worlds
To be where it is we truly want to be,
To do what it is that makes us whole,
To not drag out a togetherness
Built on false pretenses.

Call Me Misty Valentine

Posted in Love & Romance on February 14, 2013 by Poetic Flow

(It’s been quite a long time since I’ve written a Valentine’s Day poem.  Today I thought I’d take a crack at it and see if I still could.  If you’ve ever truly been in love in your lifetime, you know what love feels, and if you’ve ever truly been in love and experienced the melt down side effects of it, then you can relate to that as well.  Love should never hurt, but sometimes it does.  It is that hurt that makes us strong because we find in our next lifetime of romance, love does get a little friendlier, but sometimes it becomes just as challenging.  With that said, I hope you enjoy “Call Me Misty Valentine.”)

You romanced me when the days of love were strong,
When the fire between us was intense.
I held you in my soul,
Keeping you to myself,
Where in a word…I was loved.

I cry at Valentines Day,
The tears shed of a happiness and of a joy
That only you brought to my sunshine.
You served my world with flowers in a field of dreams
And chocolate candies that spelled out my name.

I reminisce over the memory of your sweet kisses,
The nights you would hold me close,
And I would fall away into your slumberland.
Sweet dreams of the love we made
Dances around in my head
With the words of your promises
To forever love me
Plays to a gentle tune of memories
Of where we once were
To where we are now.
And it makes me cry at Valentine’s Day,
The reality of a reflection
Of loving you
With every vessel of my being,
When loving you felt so right.

I am mystified at how time has passed,
How it has changed us.
We live in two different worlds
Where love has a different picture of reality.
I knock on your door at Valentine’s Day
To escape into your sunset,
To dance under the stars,
And sail away into the blue horizon,
Wrapped in your sweet embrace,
To once more experience
That loving magic
When our love for each other was all we knew.

Do You Remember Us

Posted in Emotions, Love & Romance on February 4, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Blue wilted flowers in a half cracked vase.
Stale chocolate candies
In a torn and worn discolored box.
A card of love and fairy tales
Crumpled in an envelope,
Let me blow away the dust,
To relive the subtle reminders of memories
Of what days of being love once felt like.

Burned out scented candles,
Soft playing music on an old
Record player.
Dimmed lights in the middle of winter,
It was then you loved me.
We kissed our cares away,
Buried our pasts in the sensual love we made,
It was then you gave me something
To hold on to.
Do you remember love?
Do you remember us?

Yesterday we hung on to what
Life could bring us in a broken down world.
Today we barely say hello
Without the wonder if there’ll even be
A tomorrow to look forward to.
And yet I kiss you in the wake of the morning sun,
But run to the other side of dawn
To find the realism of my sanity
On the edge of a stolen happiness used to remind me of
What life should be like with you today.
Tell me,
Do you remember love?
Do you remember us?
When the smell of my sweet perfume
Kept you dialing my number whenever we were apart?
When the thought of my smile lit a path
To guide you back to me.
When we could dance in a field of lilies
And feel we could
Never grow old and weary,
With time always on our side?
It was then we knew what love was.
Young and strong.

I rather live in five minutes of
Yesteryear’s love that built the
Foundation we walked upon.
Than to live in tomorrow’s fading memories.
Way back when was when love meant something.
We weren’t just together to exist,
A simple matter of convenience.
Then was when love was real
And we cherished the wilted flowers
And stale chocolate candies.
Give me that love once more
Even if it’s just for five minutes.
And I’ll give you a lifetime of
My heart.

Kiss Me Sweet Caress

Posted in Love & Romance, Poetry, Sensual on January 30, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Into the night on the blue horizon,
To find where we belong in this sweet caress.
Tenderly love me into the night
In company of the full moon
That shines on the fields
Where it is our bodies lay,
And give me sweet kisses that
Will lullaby me to sleep.
Let me awake with last night’s memory
Plastered on the walls of my mind,
And call me yours if just for a moment
On Valentine’s Day.

Dance with me the minuet you once spoke of
In your sweet whispers not that long ago.
It was that magical moment when we were once in love.

It is by the light of the silvery moon that
Prying eyes will find us engaged in a deep embrace,
Reliving the days of yesterday
For the purpose of forgetting the tears of the past.
Because in you I want to believe I’ve found
What happiness feels like,
The enjoyment of romance,
As it fills me immensely
And keeps me whole.

Let me find peace within your merciful love,
And hold me throughout the blowing winds.
Light a candle,
I’ll find my way back to your heart
If for whatever reason we are separated,
If for whatever reason I should become lost.

Kiss me with your soft lips,
Caress me with your tenderness.
I will follow you into the world of your seductions,
And succumb to the pleasures of your ecstasy.
It doesn’t matter how far away I go from you,
We will always come back together one to one
Unless love finds its way on a different path
And we become strangers to one another.

Beneathe the Disguise

Posted in Love & Romance, Pain, Poetry on June 11, 2012 by Poetic Flow

Look at my smile,
The vision of sunshine
To any gloomy day,
That which wakes you from your dark sleep,
Moving you through the greatness of a day
You’ve only dreamed of.

Feel my kiss upon your lips,
Quenching your thirst of my love
You feed off of,
Easing your hunger
And destroying any doubts
Of my love for you.

Look into my eyes and see
The passion flowing through me
Like water down a glistening fall,
Forever am I there for you
To fulfill your needs and desires,
To host your heart’s itentions
Through the sacrifices of myself.

Have you looked deep inside me?
To see the hurt and pain that flows?
To see what’s behind the sunshine smile
You worship,
That you look forward to seeing every day of a day?
You fall asleep to my lullaby kisses
And gentle touches of affection,
That you neglect to see the beauty of me.
I sail off to sleep with a tear in my eyes
And a heavy heart.

I put on a daily disguise to hide
What you have chosen to ignore
And others cannot see.
What you cannot see.
I give so much of myself
Asking only very little in return
That my own cry for happiness,
The need for your love and affection goes unheard.

Look beneathe the disguise
To find the woman you left behind.
I am so far away from you,
Though I am here,
That I accept your your pitty of
Affection you throw my way from one time to another.
I feed off of your lack of attention
Just to exist in your world
That does not seem to include me.

You’ve pushed me in the farthest corner of your heart,
And yet I continue to give so much of myself.
If you look beneathe the disguise,
You’ll find an empty vessel
Clinging to the light of day,
Craving an ounce of life from the love
We once shared before time
Brought us to this place.

I continue to put on a friendly face
To keep the sun shining,
To not draw others into
My sorrow that’s been in long existence.
I tend to everyone else’s happiness
While my own happiness is drained.
And yet I live on
Behind the walls of your life.

If thou does not love me anymore,
Why keep me dangling on a string
And hiding behind a disquise,
Locked in the shadows of what used to be
Your love?
Throw me back into the ocean,
Setting me free.
If in the future our paths shall cross,
And if it’s in the cards that
Our lives shall meet again,
Then shall we revisit the idea of love
Between us,
If it’s to be,
Then God will say so.
If not,
No regrets for it was a fun ride
While it lasted.

Take a look behind the disguise
And see what you’re losing.
Don’t wait too long
Because then it could very well
Be too late.
