I Stand Alone

I stand alone…waiting.

Hungry with desire…
To have you once again.

In a careful whisper or a reckless embrace.
As it engulfs the spark deep within my soul.

My constant longing…
An eternal flame

The pilot light of our love.


And at any moment…With any word
I might combust…and blaze
beyond the pleasures I have known.

Renewed in the love of your presence.
Pulling toward you in spite of my constant

Needing you beyond words.
Beyond flesh.
Beyond desire.

The deeper you

To lose myself yet again…
In the flame of your love.

And come undone
beyond measure

Allow myself to open
To the rawness of passion

My deepest desire
found within the very core
of the all of me.

Help me release this gift

It is for you
Only you

Tell Me

Tell me the wind is but a whimper—

Low the flame that leaps the grates;

Tell me the lightening’s but a simple

Evidence of starlit fate.

On the rooftop beats the rain,

Bend my ear

Far from fear

And tell me spring will come again.

Tell me the grass will green as pure—

Not from fear the lambs are bleating;

Tell me the sun will shine as sure—

Not from the darkness sleeting.

Thunder breaks beyond the door,

Hold me tight

Far from night

And tell me we will love once more.

Love Poem: Waiting

How may I count all the days…and hours…
Until I see you again. To touch you. To have your body near me.
Hoping beyond reason…that you will feel as I do.
Hungry for your flesh.
Wanting beyond measure the connection to your soul.
I burn for you as a candle,
slowly melting
until nothing remains
Then reignited to burn again.
My flame stronger
reaching higher with every new encounter of you.
Do you burn for me?
Do you miss the touch of my hands
upon you?
Are you awoken by the hunger for my body?

And when we meet again
will you remember?
Will you take me in your arms
and let all the days
and hours
slip away into a deeper comfort?
The comfort of our love?
The comfort of our souls united in flesh
and sealed with the bond
of two hearts.

I wonder as I wait.
Hoping beyond all my fear
That you will grab me
never let me go
Knowing that the deepest love
is said in body.
Without words or
explainations or
Just flesh against flesh.
The truth revealed in our unity.
Balancing our love to grow
and expand beyond time
beyond measure.
To be one.
As before.
As always.
