Sonnet I – In Your Hands

It happens when I look in to your eyes;

When whispered burning breaths beseech my ear;

Your face when our gaze locks cannot disguise,

Your want, your need, compulsion draws you near.

Our shadows share a heartbeat, intertwined,

A limitless immaculate desire,

Surrender as we both become one mind,

This infinite and ever-kindled fire.

Alas, the love that dare not speak its name,

For such a thing has only been a dream,

Of passion cold, ignited in to flame,

A vision given life and set agleam.

My hope, my fate, held taut in your firm grasp;

My life, like sand to wind, should you unclasp.

Sonnet I – In Your Hands
It happens when I look in to your eyes;
When whispered burning breaths beseech my ear;
Your face when our gaze locks cannot disguise,
Your want, your need, compulsion draws you near.
Our shadows share a heartbeat, intertwined,
A limitless immaculate desire,
Surrender as we both become one mind,
This infinite and ever-kindled fire.
Alas, the love that dare not speak its name,
For such a thing has only been a dream,
Of passion cold, ignited in to flame,
A vision given life and set agleam.
My hope, my fate, held taut in your firm grasp;
My life, like sand to wind, should you unclasp.

Love Poem

To you whom I adore and love,

Your name is that of a Skylark's song. My mouth becomes a garden filled with fragrant budding roses shyly blooming in spring when I speak.

Your face is the smile on my face when you look at me.

The one you gave me when we first met. I may lose my way but I know your face will always find me for you will be looking for that smile—the one you left and shared with me.

Your arms are my fortress, my strength. The one that always picks me up when I fall. You cradle me in your arms. Your hugs, my safe place. An umbrella in the rain.

Your chest is my favorite radio station.

I put my ear against it as I listen to that strong beat. Cheeks flushed as I watch that rise and fall when you breathe. Hearts in sync, warm blood flowing in our veins, we dance to the rhythm of our heartbeats.

Your hands are magic. They leave a trail of words in many secret places. Creating poems as it glides on my skin. A gentle carving on every line and curve. You touch not only my body but something deeper within.

Yours is the name

that made my soul sing.

Yours is the face that I gladly

wake up to on every new day.

The chest that houses my heart, my life.

The arms I will always hold on to.

The hand that writes my poetry.

I thank you for loving me.

Hurricane

You were my hurricane,

I carried you in my winds.

But everytime I rose, you settled me.

And now that I am gone-

You still dwell.

~diagnosis dementia

this is the linger

           the roam

the slow fade of grey

matter

          & all that matters

unbalancing the nuance

of pause

a hyphen that rivals two words

like bookends

          an epigram

in the unnamed wind

          a hologram

that holds no color at all

this is the leaning barn

          the steeping tea

the aftermath of winter

to the juniper

          forgetting the fall

this is the wait

the way white clings on oleander

& its orphaned memories

& this

this defies the uncoupling

this becomes the distance of reach

in changing seasons

          the love of two hands

as if they could ever possibly anchor

the direction the moon

drifts

lah 4.18.17 ©

in dedication to some dear friends facing this disease.

I believe love conquers all.

Rotten Apple Flesh

He bit the flesh from her bones

and found it rotten.

Lovers lips

piercing apple sweet skin,

twisting tongue through tender sinews,

searching for the tenderest morsel.

Tongue too eager to taste

left gagging on worms

burrowed beneath the surface.

Gentle shades of purple

and black.

Bruises left

by sucking,

biting, writhing,

mishandling...

not its cause?

Purest flesh turned

tainted whore.

The world is a fickle mistress.

Write a poem using the words "remember" and "forget" at least once, with one at the beginning and one near the end.
Written by Syne in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Forget Me

Forget me now

Leave me behind

Tear apart my soul

When your end draws nigh

And you feel unwhole

You will remember me

She knew he was the one

Not because he made her

weak in the knees,

but because he made her

strong in heart

Love Poem Challenge - Let's Test The New Challenge Abilities
Written by Syne in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Unsaid

I know that words cannot be unsaid

That memories are hard to leave behind

And fallen tears cannot be unshed

But maybe we can still be alright

I know regrets we have a hundred

And broken promises even more

And though our words cannot be unsaid

Maybe we can try to let it go

Forget about the things we ever did

Pretend that all the things we ever said

Can be unsaid

And we can start again

Sometimes

Sometimes, I am full of life.

And sometimes only half alive.

But through everything

And nothing

That I am,

I have been a part of her;

Sometimes as little

As the muffled beats

Of her heart-

Sometimes as loud

As her enchanting eyes.

Green Glass Love

I love the way you say something is "ours" or that "we" really enjoyed a certain restaurant. Or the way you say "should be good for us!" When someone asks to make plans, I love that we're a team and I don't have to think twice about it.

I love the way you trace the contours of my face with your fingertips, and remember that running your thumb over my eyebrow calms me immediately. You have me memorized in ways I never thought anyone could.

I love that you know all the things that broke my heart, and that you know which dress I wear to impress you. I love that you gave that Tiffany blue dress new life, and gave me a reason to dress up again.

You make me feel strong, when I feel paper thin and falter in the wind.

You curb my ego when I'm headstrong, and bring me back down to earth when I'm light years ahead of myself.

I feel like a kid with you, so silly and adventurous and ready to share this giant world like a huge playground in an everlasting game of tag.

I love that you love to see my nerdy side, and that you understand why a Mayan ruin could bring me to tears. And when I do cry, out of one eye, you tease me into smiling.

You make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me question my own thoughts, and challenge me every day. You make me strong, and you make me proud to love so fiercely. You make me better.

You make me human.
