    AFTER A WHILE (Veronica Shoftshall,

    1971) After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't always mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises and you begin...

    No eyes but yours, To look deep into mine,

    To see my heart and soul. No lips but yours, Pressed firmly to mine, Soft, warm, intoxicating... No hands but yours, To hold tenderly in my own, To feel them moving over my body, Thrilling and arousing me to my core. No arms but yours, Holding me and pulling me So close to you...

    To a Beautiful Girl You are a flower in full

    bloom, As if, through a mist, a first loom; You are a fine line that holds beauty So fragile it seems, yet so pretty. You are the wind that grace my meadows Of thoughts and lights up my weary shadows; You are the sun after my night That lights up everything in sight. Of life...

    Nobody listens to your pain,

    you've got no lover. Nobody reads your book, because they don't like the cover. :(

    Beautiful Women ~by Walt Whitman

    WOMEN sit, or move to and fro--some old, some young; The young are beautiful--but the old are more beautiful than the young. Walt Whitman

    Lost Like the mists without the rain,

    The whistle without a train, Like the sun with no noon, I am lost without you.

    Here's a poem that I did about 2 weeks ago: A

    thousand words.... The worth of a picture, but what is the value of its contents? Priceless. Moments captured in time live forever and invoke emotion in the observer. Astounding isn't it....? Lovely isn't she? The beautiful flower in the weeds who stands above the rest. She...

    Do not fall in love with people like me.

    My bodies not desirable,

    City sounds is all I've ever known,

    - I was always stuck in one place like a rusted drone, - Of course, I need the city sounds to sleep, - But, they are also there when I sleep not a wink. - Babies cry, and a Cow goes 'moo' but I'm stuck here for eternity until I have the courage to move

    This is one of Tyler Knott Gregson's poems.

    He creates powerfully romantic, sensual images that speak to being human, and our desire for romantic love. Beautiful! Place your hands upon me like a big tent preacher and with a whisper heal all that aches inside. Put your lips upon my forehead and glance your eyes to the sky...

    What Is Love?

    Is love found in holding hands? In quiet whispers? In looks shared across a crowded room? Is love shared in notes? In cards? In actions? Is love felt with a quickening pulse? A feeling of loss in her absence? A longing to see but a glimpse of her? Is love heard through...

    My gut wrenching fantasies tainted with

    sparkling ash. I don't want anyone too close or my life might crash. Fractured heart, deadened mind, I will heal in Good time. My brittle existence held together by prayer. My reality staring at me in the mirror. The world reflecting how I feel. Love is real and doesn't need to...

    Within light there is darkness,

    You do not have to be good.

    Dark Is the Night Dark is the sky,

    Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait. One wish, one dream, Two voices searching, Three little words. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait. You only know, And we have hope, I can only wish. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait.

    I woke to a jealous sunrise.

    A sunrise that couldn't beg my attention. She screamed reds and cried yellows. Giving up, she sat and joined me in a quiet day dream of you.
