Wounds of My Past

Deep pains that I thought would never pass

Scars of my youth I tried to stay hidden

Running from what I thought was so wrong

Hiding within a mask wishing I would never be found

All these traumas and bruises of what I believed not right

Kept me from you and out of the light

For years I hid from you what was hidden in my head

I thought I was a monster who should have been dead

You came to me with only your tenderness

I hid from you in the wilderness

Then a day came where it all began to crack

Letting my guard down I came out of the black

Opening up to you about my pains and my past

I thought you would flee

But instead you stayed with me

Freedom I found that day not long ago

Breaking these chains from my that which held me low

With that freedom came a love I had denied

It flowed from me like river run wild

My scars and pains laid bare

A love I have for you is eternal I swear

Tempest

Waves sweeping me back in forth
Driving me upon on unknown course
Wind whips all around
Not a sight of land to be found
Caught in a mighty gale
How can I ever prevail?
Tossed and turned like a rag doll
Caught within this ungodly squall
I reach for something to hold on tight
Something that brings me safety in the stormy night
Arms that are meant for me
Beauty at her sight sets me free
Pulls me out of this tempest churning
Into the love we both have been yearning.

Love Turned Cold

A tale of a torrid love affair
Of flames burning high into the sky
The intensity like heat blasting like a furnace
Like a wildfire scorching across the land
A supernova burning hot in the night
Over time that love did wane
To smoldering embers of their love burning out
Nothing but hot coals of what was left of their heated love affair
Slowly burning until nothing was left but ash
Ashes of the remains of their torrid heated love turned cold
The foundations of what was meant to last forever
Now a ruin forgotten in time

Believe it or not the idea for this poem came to me while watching The Avengers: Infinity War.  LOL

Longing for His Return

Like a whisper floating upon a breeze

A soft gentle tease

Gently caressing your attentive lips

A feeling of electricity rises in your finger tips

Longing for his return

An all-consuming fire will burn

Moving slowly across your chest

Making your desire begin to crest

The trail of heat brings a sigh

Dropping a fever within your thighs

Begging for your lover to be here

Feeling his body so close and near

Bringing upon a carnal moan

Wishing for his touch you have always known.

Quote – “A New Normal”

“Life is about constantly adjusting to what becomes of it from the choices you have made in it. Its about adjusting to what becomes a new normal, it may be far from what you once knew as normal. You can either fight it and be miserable or adjust and find out what new adventures this new normal will bring you.”

Time Slips By

Time slips by slow and lazy

Pleading for it to go faster

Leaving the days hazy

Somedays it is my master

 

A future that lies ahead

Wishing it was now here

But time slips by like the walking dead

Wanting the days to just disappear

 

A light so dims in the tunnel

But each day that passes

Brings us nearer as a couple

Still the days move like molasses

 

Near to my heart

Is where you will always be

You have been there since the start

Our future is bright I foresee

 

Soon the time will be counted away

Coming home to you

I shall forever stay

We shall embrace in a romantic rendezvous

How Do You Heal a Hurt

patch-2328289_960_720

How do you heal a hurt

A pain that is ever present

Knowing that what causes it will never go away

How do you fix an injury to the soul

A deep scar that is always there

Flaring up when they are least aware

Sometimes a hug or a word are enough of a salve

To put out the fire of that deep painful ache

How do you help the one you love

Whatever the solution I have yet to find

But I will never stop until the end of time

#Tuesday Tunes – Faster Pussycat “House of Pain”

The only song I really liked from this group, mainly because I could relate to. My childhood was something that was rough, due to a very strained relationship with my father. Fortunately I have repaired that relationship and I can say I do love my Dad. Hope you enjoy another look back at my 80’s musical flashbacks.
