Poem – “A Bridge between Hearts” – Romantic Poetry – 2/12/2020

Swallow upThe tears that have made this well riseFrom the cracks in my soul.My love has fallen.She has fallenTo somewhere I cannot see,To a bleeding sea,And now lies in a sceneOf outspread limbsUpon a bloody shore.Love flows a mile and a half across,This tale of loss.Across a sea of treacheryAnd the sinew and skin of… Continue reading Poem – “A Bridge between Hearts” – Romantic Poetry – 2/12/2020

Where you shall beIn the coming days,I implore you not to pass from this realm,Without my whisper into your ear.Without the returned gentlenessYou have bestowed always upon me,In the darkest of days,When hope seemed lost, and doom seemed endless.Without my mouth near your ear,There will be everything for me to fear.When tears flow to my… Continue reading Poem – “Do not Die, before my Farewell” – Romantic Poetry – 2/10/2020

Poem – “Bent before the Farewell Kiss” – Romantic Poetry – 1/27/2020

Please,I am upon my knees,To receive,The kiss that answers my pleas.For I am numbBy raw strife,Knowing you'd not be my wife,In the turmoil that shaded our life.What was it like, to lie?To speak of being vulnerable, while IFell into bleak and miserable sighsOne after the other, with muffled cries,Into my hands, pouring from my eyes.A… Continue reading Poem – “Bent before the Farewell Kiss” – Romantic Poetry – 1/27/2020

Poem – “Was it Emotion?” – Romantic Poetry – 1/26/2020

Was it emotionThat compelled you to betray?The sight of meMust be the eclipse,The two hands that made their wayOver to your crying eyes,And blinded your vision.Who was the seeing manIn this apocalyptic romance?For I was blinded, too,By our coldness, in the tears we both rainedTo our kneesThat we hugged close to heart,As the snow hung… Continue reading Poem – “Was it Emotion?” – Romantic Poetry – 1/26/2020

Poem – “The Red in Our Eyes” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

We are divided between currentsThat fall from eyes made of glass,And to shield our faces makes us witnessThe shame we decorate ourselves with,As we bleed.We bleed dewdrops over cheeks made of ivory,And kiss love awayAs the emotion it was,Meant to stay.Agony is now our new bliss,Our cheeks, our faces, the silver tears we kiss,Buried inside… Continue reading Poem – “The Red in Our Eyes” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

Poem – “How Beautiful you are…” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

How beautifulOne such as me, can describeEach detail, with astonished eyes.Beauty is but a weakness, a place of clayThat requires the water, for sculpture.It is nothing, without the hands atop it,And so, I go to mold.I craft legs to appear as water-bent pillarsTo hold upPoseidon's very palace, should he have one,Or a cottage, that runs… Continue reading Poem – “How Beautiful you are…” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

Poem – “A Dying Radiance” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

Who bequeathed the roseAbove your brow?Where each petal runs rampant, to fallTo meet the lips that callMy name, through the frosted walls.What love turned itselfUpon an old and delicate leaf?When beauty wakes up, and nestles besideThe stirring loneliness, of a man in a hollow form,And he lays next to a shadow.Merely a quilt that covers… Continue reading Poem – “A Dying Radiance” – Romantic Poetry – 1/25/2020

Poem – “The Face of Beauty” – Romantic Poetry – 1/24/2020

Oh, idleness,Unchanging woman,Who I love.There is, to you, of what I observe,A frame, myself, and you, the painting.You have beauty that thunders a spark across the skies, above.Love cannot any longer, lift it up,All I may do is sculpt it, into a memorable form, of what I knew.I knew, through portraits that still enrage me,That… Continue reading Poem – “The Face of Beauty” – Romantic Poetry – 1/24/2020

Poem – “The Door to Beauty” – Romantic Poetry – 1/23/2020

Pain is there,Beyond the door.I see blood rushing inTo my feet,And I know, very well so,That her defeat is near.Like two seasons faded from their togetherness,I was the winter you did abhor,While you were the summer, where love climbed ashore,To see the rocks as mere pebbles,And the moss that covered them,Only the comfort of what… Continue reading Poem – “The Door to Beauty” – Romantic Poetry – 1/23/2020

Poem – “Your Eyes for this Occasion” – Romance – 12/5/2019

Upon blue irises,Folded over with lids like bird feathers,A glass of red within reach of a porcelain hand,I stare. Beauty has welcomed itself, upon this occasion,Your grace, and your face,Two eyes like twin moons upon my own,Shifting away in incredible shyness.Lovely, you are,Upon this evening of evenings.And highlighted you are,Near to a candle that stains… Continue reading Poem – “Your Eyes for this Occasion” – Romance – 12/5/2019

Poem – “Ingratitude” – Romance – 12/5/2019

The world around meShifts into an illusion,When she stares at me with blank eyes,And speaksWith an ever-more blank voice.She has been the ungrateful one,For each of my worlds,Love and survival. To make her live,Was to allow her to die in my heart. A pain,And a tragedy.One world,Devoted to eternity.It was a climb, to the finish-line,A… Continue reading Poem – “Ingratitude” – Romance – 12/5/2019
