Kiss me…

Kiss me until I can’t breathe
Press your body close to mine
Do this every day to me
And feel our hearts entwine

How?

man-802062_1280

How do you do it
How do you send my senses into a tizzy
My heart starts racing
And my head becomes dizzy

How is it this happens
Every time I read what you’ve written
Such simple words
And I’m completely smitten

How do you cause this
These sensations of bliss
I get lost in the thought
Of your smoldering kiss

How enraptured am I
To feel all of these emotions
Saturated by your love
Amazed by your devotion

How blessed I am
By the treasure I’ve found in you
My heart fully appeased
By a love that is true

An indecisive tale

fire-971949_1280.jpg

Peering out from the dark cavern
A brilliant light shone from the other side of the lake
Her intuition told her to be cautious
And yet her curiosity was more than she could take

The light flickered in luminescent waves
Dancing across the water’s edge
Captivating her inquisitive mind
She didn’t hesitate to forgo her pledge

So off she went to explore the island
Lured by the radiance of such an unusual sight
And as her boat landed on the southern shore
Her senses began filling her with fright

Savage beasts appeared to be dancing
Amongst the glow of flaming embers
And she watched as screaming prisoners
Were all mercilessly dismembered

Before long she was spotted on the shore
And those barbarians sought her without delay
A prize she certainly was
A sitting duck on carnivorous display

And though she tried her best to escape
The cannibals were far too many
They looked at her as a gift from the gods
As if she were a lovely bright shiny penny

It seemed she was far too beautiful to kill
So instead the chief made her his wife
And now she lives in the lap of luxury
Resigned to eating people with a fork and knife

September sunrise

wedding-2616652_1280

Your smile is like a September sunrise
The warmth of it permeates to my very core
And with every amusing expression you give me
I can’t help but want you more

Butterflies appear out of nowhere
Whenever you’re around
And sometimes I’m afraid you’ll disappear
If I dare breathe or make a sound

You’re like a wonderful dream
Seeming too perfect to actually be true
But my hope is that all my September’s
Will now be more resplendent because of you

Writing prompt: September sunrise

The pen ached for his loving touch

pencil-1891732_960_720

Several long months had passed
Since she’d been held
By her faithful master

She greatly missed
The way his warm hand curved
Around her well-worn body

Sections of her once shiny exterior
Had long ago lost their luster
And now began to flake and peel

His familiar rugged fingerprints
Still appeared in the places
Where she’d been gripped the tightest

Each spot a permanent reminder
Of the intensity in which he wrote
And the passion which he radiated

She continued to ache
For his ever loving touch
And dreamt of his timely return

But she soon came to realize
She was no match for her masters new blond #2
That fair young lady had the bite marks to prove it

Secret seduction…

seduction

Swept away
By a passionate kiss
One she knew
She didn’t dare resist

Taken under
Completely by surprise
A perfect love
Reflected in her eyes

Never before
Had she felt such heat
Finally a man
Who made her feel complete

Lost in the depths
Of his charming smile
She knew this flame
Was completely worthwhile

Left breathless and wanting
Their impassioned eyes meet
Who was this handsome stranger
Who’d swept her off her feet

Putting the romance novel down
She continues with her housecleaning
Everyone wants to know
Why suddenly she’s beaming

Anchored avenues

winter-3197686_960_720

I thought those avenues
Were sound and secure
You had me believing
And damn I was sure

But only a fool believes
In things they can’t actually see
And now I know exactly
What you did to me

Those anchored avenues
Were apparently all for show
The truth came out
And so I let you go

People always ask me
If regrets still exist
But how can a broken heart
Even want to persist

The absence of you
Has only made me stronger
And I’ll never regret
Not wanting you any longer

Liquid love

sea-3203731_960_720

I miss the feel
Of liquid love
It’s the only thing
I can still think of

I miss the days
Of never being alone
The feel of a warm touch
Melding with my own

I miss the passion
Found in a kiss
And still wish there was a way
To bottle bliss

I miss the life
That I once knew
When I didn’t have to live
Without a me and you

Exciting news! Read all about it!

Well, I’ve got some rather exciting news to tell all of you about, and I just can’t hold it in any longer.  Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been rather aloof these days, and I promise you, it comes with good reason.  I have been secretly working on 12 poetry books, and my first one is finally ready for publication!  Can you believe it?  Well, I can’t… seriously, it seems so surreal to me.  I just got my proof in the mail yesterday.  Isn’t she purdy… 😋

Anyway, if you’re into lovey dovey, mushy type poetry books, one which is bound to leave your heart fluttering right out of your chest, then you’ll want to order a copy of my book for Valentines Day.  I promise you it’ll be the perfect gift idea for your sweetheart.  Of course, I am a little bias I suppose.  So here’s a heads up that it’ll be released for publication on February 1st.  Like I said… just in time for the big Hallmark holiday.  And if you have the sudden urge to be all romantic, you’ll be able to buy my book on Amazon before the big day arrives.  Gee… maybe I should find a way to throw in a free box of chocolates with every order.  I’ll have to work on that.  😉  ~M xo
