Friend with Benefits

It’s snowing
It’s cold
I’m waiting
For you to show
Be bold
Ravage my body
Engage my mind
Open the door
Kiss me
On the lips
Smack my behind
I want to be dirty
I want to win this game
Come
Out on top
I have no shame
You’re dirty
And flirty
And darling
Not even thirty
You’re my naughty
Little secret
My friend I can always
Call
You’re always there to listen
And catch me when
I fall
You’re my dashing
Charming lover
My friend
With benefits
You’ll always have a place
In my heart
And reserved on
My lips
A kiss

On my mind

I am trying
To focus
On other things
Like art and paint
But the truth is
I ain’t
Got room
In my mind
For beauty
Other than you
You haunt my thoughts
Distract my days
No matter how hard I try
I think of you
Always
My mind is cursed
And what’s worse
Everything I try to do
Always seems to remind me
Of you
These love poems
I read, write, breathe
You live inside them
Never to be free
You think I’d escape you
When I dream
But night time
It seems
To be just the same
And the midnight breeze
Whispers your name
The stars they twinkle
Like your eyes
The moon it glows
Waiting for sunrise
And darling
I need you to know
In case you were
Unsure
How I feel
You are always
On my mind
In my heart
In my lungs
As I breathe
My darling
This love
Is for real

2 a.m.

Like an echo in a dream
Always at this time
It seems
To be my hour
Be my time
To spill my heart
Write these rhymes
I think of you
In your bed
Glasses off
And your head
Resting
On pillows soft
And suddenly
I can’t tame
These thoughts
I want to kiss your lips
Lie in you arms
Snuggle up
To you
Cozy and warm
I am awake
As I smile
And I want to
Keep these
Memories
Of you
Awhile
But then the pain
Starts creeping in
And I realize
I don’t know
Where you’ve been
Tonight
Or yesterday
Or tomorrow
Or if you even
Think of me
At all
Remember my smile
My laugh
My kiss
Or if you even
Miss
Me
Or did you forget
Perhaps regret
Us
And then I’m
Tempted
To give you a call
But I remember
The wall
You’ve built around
Your heart
And the truth of that
Stings
The truth really hurts
And I try to fall back
To dreams
But I flirt
With sleep
And memories
Thoughts of you
Teasing me
The whole night
Through.

Only the brave

I said to him, “I don’t think you should read my poetry. I’m far too passionate and intense for most people. I may scare you away like the rest. I’m raw and honest and I don’t pull any punches.”
He said, “I know you are very passionate and that’s what makes you so incredible. And as far as scaring everyone away…they’re all a bunch of cowards. Do you really want to be with someone who isn’t brave enough to let themselves feel you? Someone too cowardly to fall in love with you?”
Then it hit me. I was feeling sad for myself that I was something to run from; when all along, I am just that girl in the tower that only the bravest would attempt to love.
And the truth of that from his lips hit me like an iceberg. And I drowned in his sincerity and his courage.

Nothing to Fear

I’m not into
Games
I don’t like
Scams
I don’t need you to
Light this
Flame
Then fan
The fire inside me
I need you to be honest
Need you to be
True
I don’t need
Artificial affection
To grow love for
You
My heart is ready
For real love
And you my darling
Fit like a glove
So give up the games
Open your heart
I know you’re afraid
But let’s start
Fresh
Clean
A new page
To write our story
In blood
In ink
It’s not as scary
As you think
I’ll go first
I’ll cut
I’ll bleed
Open my heart
Write my words
For you to read
And when you’re
Ready
I’ll be right here
Just remember
Love
You have
Nothing
To fear

Ticking Clock

Baby baby baby
You’re driving me
Crazy
With desire
Pleasure
My heart knows no bounds
To measure
The feelings inside
Intense
My love like a typhoon
Immense
Your finger tips
Electric
Shock
My heart like a
Ticking
Clock
Stopped
Stunned
Suddenly
Shunned
The falling for you
Felt sweet
But the crash
At the end
Laying at your feet
In Heartbroken
Defeat
Hurts like
Hell
And honestly
I wish I never
Fell
