Sidewalk Shadows

Sidewalk Shadows

thousands of miles from here,
other faces drink your smile,
rub sidewalk shadows with you,
and smell you in the air

but, in peaceful moments
I am beside you
walking the walk
and talking the talk
so real,
I can feel the warmth of your hands

it’s true, life is a maze
with many possible solutions
and though different pathways
reveal themselves daily,
which one
might lead me to you ?

so, I leave the doors open
that life might run free
from within
while I lie here in the darkness
and dream myself..
with you.

15 Minutes

sidewatch

15 Minutes

 

if you had 15 minutes

to go instantly, anywhere you wanted

where would you go

what would you see ?

would you cross the ocean

climb the mountain at sunrise

or maybe

lay on a tropical beach

to shake those winter blues..

 

you know where I’d be, girl

inches from your lips

with 14 minutes to spare…

 

enveloped in your arms

with 12 reasons for  romance,

tracing finger flight plans

on your neck

down your back

where they disappear

into love’s foggy memories

 

laying you down

with 10 minutes in my pocket

to memorize your face,

your smell…

and of course,

filling all my senses

with the blueprints of you

 

holding you close

with a solid 7 ( minutes ) between us

teasing your ears

with passionate whispers,

melting together

that I may leave part

of my wholeness

behind

 

leaving crumbs

of crinkled desire

all around

as the seconds tick away

that I may always find my way

back to love

back to home

back to you…

 

900 seconds of love

and I’d treasure every one….

 

Currents

current

Currents

 

Like the currents ever flowing
on a river to the sea
you come rushing up around me
just to tease me playfully
and I’m drowning in desire
from the flood within my heart
but the tide that keeps you distant
has been haunting from the start…

I can feel you in the evening
in a chilly gust of wind
as I pull the covers tighter
to protect the warmth within
you’re not really here for comfort
just a jailer, checking in
and you’re adding to my sentence
as I fall in love again…

There’s no reason for my madness
it’s a form of self abuse
I can’t block you from my vision
I have tried, it’s just no use
so the best that I can hope for
is to love you as my friend
‘till the currents start to change,
and you go rushing off again….

Secret of life

secret of life

Secret of life

If I love you extra hard
will you feel it over there
between the daily drumming of life
and the quiet gazing of the moon
will you hear the echo in my chest
from a heart that beats alone
a cavernous craving..
for you.
Won’t you come to me soon
in my simple world
nothing is simple
about love…

Minutes

 

 

midnight

Minutes

minutes from midnight
your voice…
forms a
comfortable pillow
where my head
dreams
so well…

with a “deja-vu”
echo
between the
beats of my heart
you laugh…
and
the lightning
from your storm
slips through…

minutes from midnight…

but lasting
the whole night
through…

Time

time

Time

unrealized
and unforgiving
you scratch at my heart

knowing what’s right
yet, knowing what’s right

neither comes true

you’re already part
of my space

waiting for time
to catch up…

Deep

candlewindow

Deep

hold very still.
I like the way the moonlight
paints your face
so softly…

as I sit
memorizing your breath
through slightly parted lips
my hands,, hungry for the freedom
that the night bestows
my body, longing
to feel your weight
like the shoreline feels the waves
rhythmic
relentless
release…

love doesn’t just happen
wait.
yes, it does

hold very still.
while I ponder
which came first
the wanting…
or the need,
and let’s see
just how deep
this love
can go…
