by Nick Anthony

To think, you’re finally here with me!
After years of relentless, flirtatious banter,
Sometimes as playful as puppies, we were:
Other times more serious than a snake bite–
Always fruitless my affections were.

Unattainably distant, you seemed to me.
A hazy speck just beyond the horizon,
Across the ocean of my life.
And I, stranded on my little island,
Couldn’t possibly build a smoke signal
Tall enough to alert your look-out.

The Jealous Rain

A jealous rain

fell from the envious sky

soaked your clothes


caressed your hair

like a lover

left lingering droplets on your eyelashes

Do I Love You Enough

by charmedchaos12


Do I Love You Enough?

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Another year has gone by and I ask

Do I love you enough?

Spinning, rushing through this life

Trying to be tough

Never falter, never blunder

Yet now I begin to wonder-

Do I Love You Enough?

Turn the Night On

by braveandrecklessblog

This is a collaboration between S Francis (SailorPoet) and Christine Ray (Brave and Reckless)
Won’t you stay,
My love?

Outside snow falls steady
Gusted by north wind
Tapping at our window
Inside these walls
A fire burns

First Love

by markfahmy


Do you remember
the very first time
you fell in love?
Staying awake
long past bedtime
on a school night

And the butterflies
you felt firing up
in your stomach
every time you
saw her eyes?

It is rumored that there are 50 words

In the Eskimo language for snow

I ponder

Why are there not 50 words in the

English language

That I could draw upon

To describe that moment

When your bare skin

Touches my bare skin?

I Wonder If

by markfahmy


I still feel..
your lips on mine
as I held you close
and your hair did shine
under a million stars
when everything seemed to align.

I wonder if..
you think about me too
when you lie in bed at night
under a million different stars
knowing my heart still belongs to you.

Moonlight’s Magic

by braveandrecklessblog

This piece was inspired by a beautifully evocative poem Night Notes written by  EDC Shorts

It is only in sleep

That she is fully visible

Able to be deciphered

In her unbuttoned

Unzipped state

I look at her as she dreams her mind away,
like she always does.
And I cannot find the words I want to say,
every one of my thoughts seems to have run away.

She smiles quietly and holds my hand,
and stars in far away galaxies would jubilantly dance.
My heart pumps more blood to my mind that does not understand,
how can a simple girl own my world with a single glance?

On One Knee

by markfahmy


You look at me,
with eyes full of light
Like a hundred windows to your soul
opening so bright.

You smile, and I,
struck with such unparalleled beauty,
cannot but smile at your pretty face
as the sun behind us fades.

To My Love

by markfahmy


The moment I saw you, was the moment the butterflies in my stomach flew
The moment I saw you, I met the reality of a dream I once drew
The moment I saw you, I saw my reality anew

Your presence makes my heart leap in disbelief
My puzzle pieces have finally found their matching piece

The Force of Love

by Seafarrwide


As I walked through the windy street
I saw two lovers kissing on the seat
The wind blew the leaves from gutters clean
But still they wouldn’t stop kissing so keen

The land lay bare and the wind blew louder
Nothing stirred them from their lustful hour
What a wondrous life lovers led
When all is stirring about their heads

Oblivious they are to any that pass
Ensnared in a lustful wanton trance
He sings a song a bed of roses
He makes from a thousand fragrant posies

Her eyes
Look inside me
And I want
To hold, touch and devour
The ache
Left behind
In my chest, mind and loins,

A song for sunset

Liquid gold on the riverbed
poured out by the setting sun
As it waves a fond farewell

~ Sympathy of the Sea

by ladyliterati

Upon the cliffs, sea spray blowing

Waxing mom, pearl drop glowing

Soaked, sheer dress clinging

Mournful songs from lips singing
Across the waves and frothy foam

Between each waves and audible moan;

The Sean seldom gives up her dead

Wraps them in sea salty watery beds
Yes, an audible moan raised above the crash, the foam:

Gilded Hearts – Meh

by Colly

Red rose symbolism of truce.
Cool ambiance propels desire.
Late autumn rests her weary head.
Colors of the day fade at twilight.
Love ignites; candle-lit dances, sways.
Teasing the moon’s watchful gaze.
Midst pain; suffering eases a-gain.
Cherry red lips reserve mundane.

As the Sun loves the Moon

by Seafarrwide


By Wendy Norman

Pleasure is found in a pathless journey
Enjoying the feelings that we are learning
Living in a society where none instructs
Drinking the nectar of forbidden lust

Hiding from the crowd under a cherry tree
Blending with the blue sky as far as could see
Stopping in the moment of wonder no rush
Believing in in this emotion we can trust
