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.

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.

I’m Not Enough

Posted in Pain, Poetry on May 22, 2012 by Poetic Flow

Where do I begin?
Except to say I’ve given my all.
Thrown myself at his tender mercy
And in return kicked to the ground.
I wear the mental anguish well,
Some would say,
And yet I’m standing tall,
Despite the war wounds I bear.

I’ve not the satisfaction
Of honor, respect
And true love.
Those were taken from me
So long ago.
With nothing more than my sanity to hold on to.
Forced to walk away,
I refused to look back
To see what I’ve left behind.
Afraid to carry that life into tomorrow.

It’s not enough to have worked my fingers to the bone,
That I’ve not bled enough blood
For someone who did not appreciate my spiritual being;
To give life to someone who cared not to
Mend my broken happiness
And love me the way in which I loved him.

I’ve not given enough to satisfy a thirst
I no longer can fulfill.
Never mind,
Tis the day will come when I will be fine,
And he will be a forgotten memory.
And I will be in the arms of someone
Whom I will be his queen.

I’m a victim of an emotional breakdown
And yet they laugh at me because
I live on recycled memories to save me,
And moments of daydreams to hold me together.

My rejected body feels no pleasure from a love
I once called my own.
In that dark room is where I find comfort,
Hiding from prying eyes to ward off
Ridiculous chatter of judgmental thoughts.

Leave me to wallow in misery for the time being.
It’ll only be a minute or two,
Then I will walk away with nothing more than
My sanity in tack,
Refusing to look back
To see what I’ve left behind.

No reason to go season after season
Wearing the same face of sorrow.
The power to change the future ahead of me
Is in the grasps of my hands,
I simply need to turn the knob and open the door,
Take one step,
Then another and I will be on my way.

I’ve cried my last tear of pain and sadness.
Let me shed the wounds that bind me to a state
Of mental depression.
I can see my smiles in the distance,
That place where happiness reigns.

Goodnight sweet surrender,
Into the blue horizon I travel,
To find my soul to live once again.
And if he should remember me,
Let it be in lost memories he let
Slip away in the far corners of his mind.

Love Me Gently

Posted in Love & Romance, Poetry on May 16, 2012 by Poetic Flow

Tis the day will come
When all I want to do is to
Fall away into your field of dreams.
Where in the moon light
We will share what only lovers could share.

Your touch moves me with the
Sway of the ocean’s waves,
And I am hypnotized by the
Feelings I’ve succumb to.
 
My tears disappear in the
Blowing wind –
Your breath upon my skin
Soothing my once troubled soul.
 
Love me gently,
For my heart was weary.
Bring me back to the
Long days of making love
Where all I know is you
And the music we make together,
And you changing and rearranging my world,
Making it whole again.
 
Whenever you kiss me
Long and sweet,
My heart skips a beat,
And I want to fall in love
With you all over again.
 
My body is jellified,
Caught in the reminiscence
Of who you once became to me,
To whom we became to each other,
That, which time keeps us here
Sharing in this life.
I don’t ask why,
Just ask where in time will we go.
 
Hold my hand like you used to.
Love me gently,
Ending all of my sorrowful days.
Fill me of the heavenly blessings
Your body beholds,
And we are
Intertwined with each other,
underneath the cherry blossom trees.
 
Be my thirst for lust,
My drive for desiring all you possess inside,
The one I run to for a tender moment,
Embraced in your revelry.
Kiss me standing on
The horizon of a new day.
 
Help me to renew my faith
In what we had,
And continue to have.
Take me to that place in your heart,
Letting me wake up to the reality
Of the trueness of our love.

But whatever you do,
Love me gently
As I give my heart and soul back to you,
And we become one in this new life
We create for each other.

This Aching Feeling

Posted in Love & Romance, Pain, Poetry on May 2, 2012 by Poetic Flow

Do you think of me even in a moments passing?
Do you whisper my name even on the breath of a midnights wind?
Do you relish in the memory of the love I give so willingly
From my body within?
Do you feel for me how I feel for you?
Do you long for me in my absence
The way that I long for you when you are not there?
You, the one I have loved for so long.
Or have we come to find ourselves passing in the night
On different ships?
Drifting into worlds apart,
Non-existent to each other?

This aching lonliness I feel at the surface of my heart
Has thrown me into a frenzy of darkness,
A place where I have found solitude,
Where my tears reign supreme behind closed doors,
Never setting me free.

The love from your warm embrace is absent from my soul.
The love we made that brought our bodies one to one
Is that of a fading memory lost in the distance.
I see you there,
And yet invisible to you I have become.

This aching inside is that which I cannot shake.
Afraid that when I open my eyes you will be
That of a dream that’s left me
With kissless nights under Heaven’s moonlit skies,
And your tender lips that once touched mine will escape me
And be no more.
I was yours at one time, but only in a dream.

Did it ever occur to you that the days of distant pasts
Have come back to linger with regrets of the
Pain we’ve experienced,
That which has torn us apart in some unexpected way?
I have given all I could give of myself
Thus it never enough to satisfy you,
Or to return to the love we once shared.

If we have reached the end of the horizon,
I can only pray that the light that shines on the
Tail of the shooting star
Will bring us back together to live out our days
Like that which we once planned.
I will never cease loving you in this world
Or the next.

A One-Night Stand

Posted in Poetry on June 20, 2010 by Poetic Flow

We met in a bar.
Summer.
One night after work.
He said I was the most
Beautiful woman he’d ever seen.
Funny,
No one’s ever said I
Was beautiful before.
He was smitten.
So was I.
He loved the way I walked.
The way I talked.
The way I danced on the dance floor.
He was a smooth talker.
Gentle in his approach.

Gentle in his touch,
That he held me with
Love and affection and compassion.
Said he never wanted to let me go.
Wanting to always be with me.

He promised he would love me.
Take care of me.
Give me what the world
Could never give me.
Said he would always be there for me.
He said he would never leave me alone.
He said he would shower me with gifts,
Always be my one and all.
And he touched my body,
Inside and out.
Made me feel like I’ve never
Felt before in this life time.
His touch upon my lips
Filled me immensely.

In the end all he did was lie to me.
One lie after another.
He robbed me of my innocence.
Left me in a cold and desolate place
In my mind of lost memory,
Trapped in a broken state.
He left me to fight to remember
Where I was and where I had been.
Leaving me to rely on the trust
Of strangers to find my way home.
I had to run with the wind in my face
To keep from losing consciousness.

In the days that followed,
And they were far too long with no end,
He never called to see if I
Found my way home safely that dark night
He left me alone.
He never returned my countless calls.
We eventually became a distant blur
Of an unspoken love affair
That was nothing more than a one-night stand,
One that was never to transpire.

He stole my clothing.
Robbed me of my dignity and pride.
And there was the one time
I actually cried out of shame.

It was on an unsuspecting day
In the time that followed,
That our paths would soon cross again.
He came calling with the same
Promises and lies.
The same gambles of life.
Oh, yeah,
And that charming smile
And gentle touch.
I partook of his essence
Given to me one last time,
Then I had to fall back on
The memories he left me with
So many years before.
I’m sorry, Tequila,
Your liquid madness
Just isn’t for me.
It’s over between us,
Since you left me alone
In that dark wilderness
Such a long time ago.
