only the ocean and me

only the ocean and me

It wasn’t the best of weekends. I read a threatening poem dedicated to a friend. Meanwhile, another friend received angry, unkind messages because of a post I shared on Friday.

My blog has been a vehicle for me to promote women and love. There has always been one constant message – positivity.  It is all I know.

I refuse to condone, accept, or promote hate, envy, bullying, or violence. Love, acceptance, and understanding are the cure.

During my worst moments, I always retreat to my favorite lady. She always resets my mind, my inner peace, and priorities.

I often feel these lyrics by Jack Johnson were written for me.

When this work is done
And this coat is dry
When this world is too much
It will be
Only the ocean and me

When these sails go up
Mountains fade away
Stars come out
I’m finally free
it’s only the ocean and me

Fall at My Feet

Wanted to share a poem and post from my cherished friend Fiery. She dedicated a sinful little poem and very flattering intro to me yesterday and I wanted to share it with all of you. Please, comment on her blog and not mine.
Thank you.

Silently Smouldering Words

So… definitely need an intro today.

This inspired little piece of delicious filth, is dedicated to

The Lonely Author

Some of you will no doubt be wondering why, Fiery? For why??

(I will tell you. Bear with.)

Some of you may take one look at that photo of sexy, bestockinged legs and know exactly why I am dedicating this to him.

He has quite an attractive and relentless little kink for… women’s feet, especially in stockings, especially pointed his way, especially on a candle lit date or some such Lonely Author antics, especially…you get the picture.

So, since he is my favourite (yeah I said it) poet/writer/peddler of smiles and chuckles around here (or around anywhere really) and I do admire him for many, many reasons, I thought he may enjoy me turning my poetic dirties in his direction. For a treat, ya know?

And who’d have thunk, the sweet…

tonight, i long to be the moon

tonight, i long to be the moon

sitting on this lonely beach
i know you have never been mine
yet i wonder if you are alone
or nestled in someone else’s arms
has he ever kissed your silences
embraced the painful tears that fall
like autumn leaves inside your soul
does he fill your nights with light
or inspire romance in your eyes
will he make your darkness his own
as he watches over you
tonight, my love
i long to be the moon

i pray for you

Something for a friend.

I pray for you

bless the morning sun
that warms your soft cheek
the syntax of your happiness
the affectionate words
that I never dared to speak
tonight, I quietly whisper
a hymn that I once knew
before the altar of your words
I kneel and pray for you

oceans apart

When I made my move to Florida, my precious friend Maria Elena of A Gypsy at Heart said the words “oceans apart, only a thought away.” The words were so inspiring, I asked her permission to use them in a poem.

Please, follow A Gypsy At Heart. She will introduce you to the people, sights, and scents of the wonderful places she visits giving every destination (Hamburg, Bangkok, Provence, and so many others) their own intriguing personality.

oceans apart

gazing at the vast waters
between us
one consolation keeps me breathing
i can still think of you
for it is
our brief conversations
that fill my bones with hope
igniting a burning passion
in my soul
that no bottomless sea
could ever douse
tonight, like every other night
my heart seeks solace
oceans apart
only a thought away

the theory of you and me

the theory of you and me

never understood
the theory of everything
yet I am smart enough to theorize
my wine would be sweeter
coming from your lips
the stars more brilliant
in the galaxy of your eyes
no need to hypothesize
don’t always comprehend
what you are doing to me
for I am a virgin in love
since everything is so new
today, I finally understood
i wasn’t born
until the moment
i discovered you
