stolen heart #triolet #poetry

inside out

Don’t worry I won’t tell

about the way you stole my heart

over romance I tripped and fell

don’t worry I wont tell

over sugary notes I tripped and fell

bloodied by your pointed darts

don’t worry I wont tell

about the day you ripped my heart

 

I love it when I stumble over a drafted poem. This one penned in 2014 for Valentine’s Day

 

 

Broken Elevator #poetry #valentinesday

white bloody rose

haunted by a memory

of an elevator ride

my heart torn in pieces

carved with a sharp knife

if only I could grasp

some meaning in your eyes

I wouldn’t have to work

at reading between the lines

here I am in motion

imagining your kiss

the thorns from a rose

pierced me on the lift

the floor is done rising

eyes lower to the door

open hands left holding

what was broken long before

Lover’s Dance #valentine #poetry #photography

love me calla

Gentle mist upon my forehead

covers me with diamond dew

fragrant kisses call me softly

velvet points our pas de deux

Let us dance upon the four winds

impassioned lovers take our cue

when night’s curtain is a falling

dearest, hold me near to you

I had to pull an archived romantic poem for lovers today!

It’s just for a day… #poem #photography #valentine

the heart
were it  for a day
should I gently
place 
such a precious thing
recipient of my dreams
in your hands?
*
were it for a day
would I with but single thought
lay
an offering
treat you like a king
at attention would I stand?
*
were it for a day
present for you
a feast
decant my finest wine
give all that is mine
pretend that you are grand?
*
were it for one day
with this
rusty key
I’d offer you  my love
poured out from my heart
devotion to one man
The Key took its own direction and as I was meandering toward romantic it was turning another way but I guess in the end we came to an agreement – of sorts.
A most Happy Valentine’s Day. My valentine is far from the moon; the key will have to keep me company.
The Midweek Motif (at Poet’s United)  not surprisingly is Heart.
Who would hold the key to yours????

“Be Mine” writing-challenge-valentine #poetry #valentine’sday

valentine

What if he should read

the words I wrote 100 years from now

of knights and dragons

and hidden away princesses

would he think it mere fantasy?

*

 I write faithfully with my pen

of dark misty hollows

places to be lost

corners to be found

hoping dreams never to end

*

can ideas inscribed in ink

compare to blue moon lit dances

long hair billowing

in salty air’s breeze

as spicy music romances

*

soft lacy valentine bouquet

encircles my heart

 a smile is your only answer

to “be mine”

the place where fantasy starts

Written in Moondust

 


I shake last night from my head
memories linger bright like the sun
a warm brush with moon light
Her glowing tendrils of hair reflect gold
lips speak  whispers into my ear
my heart with her is never cold
She leaves an imprint behind
*
There's a knowing "she will return"
to hold me in her arms
beam love through me
I think about her beauty from the inside out
her words I hold in my hands
they are clearly
Written in silvery moon dust
