The warmth I feel from the touch of your skin,
Your caresses is where my passions begin.
The flickering light that warms my heart,
A fire from the sparks it does start.
Hoping the affection that we gain,
Won’t cause either one any pain.
My mind tells this just isn’t right,
But in my body and soul, this affection I can’t fight.
Every once in awhile you find a special friend,
Never knowing when these secret moments will end.
A Rainbow Hug…..for You
There’s something there!
It’s much deeper…
and much lighter…
Than us both.
It comes from within
as you see it without.
It explodes with a grin
from inwardly out.
Yet another fountain…
A great celebration!
My deepest sorrow was letting you go.
I watched you turn and leave.
I didn’t try to stop you.
I never spoke to sway your mind.
I remember your touch,
The heat of your body,
The warmth that made me feel alive,
Your eyes so penetrating,
That could see into my soul.
No secrets could I keep from you.
I used to tremble when you were near.
I would read your thoughts before you spoke.
I could sense your presence in the middle of the night.
My heart would beat with desire for you.
Now the emptiness chills my being
Like everlasting winter,
feel barren and frozen.
They say you took your life. To where? I ask.
It isn’t lying here. The casket gapes
For all to see a face more like some mask
Instead of what is on our memory tapes.
That pin-striped suit and tie–where did they find
An outfit far from your accustomed wear?
So active both in body and in mind
This stillness that you keep gives us a scare
Unlike unanswered phones when we would call.
Out busy with a class, or concert, friend,
Some science project scheduled in the fall.
You planned to visit at semester’s end
But came to us three weeks before your time
Some decades early leaving us behind.
Gazing through the heated haze
Of the smoke-filled bar.
I gaze beyond the sunshine smiles
To who and what we are.
People, bodies searching
For something more than this;
Some seek it in their altered states,
Some in a stranger’s kiss.
Shallow, shameful reality –
It takes my breath away.
Can I escape this senseless trap?
Or am I here to stay?
I have been a part of this before,
A part of this foolish game.
Why am I drawn here again
To these things so filled with shame?
I know what it is I want from life
And where I’m going to;
I have so much I want to share
Could it be with you?
