Moonlight Cherishes

The moon looks down upon us all with her kindly lovelight

Artemis, Cerridwen, Diana, Isis, Luna, Seline,

the brightest full moon should be enough

She keeps me safe in her celestial love

soft and white as some heavenly dove

yet unimaginably distant so far above

ordinary man with pain undreamed of

be comforted because you are loved

the brightest moonrise

Haunted Abandonment

enchanted lust is as a candle under a dark moon

night soon

hard as stone

dry as a bone

far as the moon

she left me alone

the enchantress crone

dangerous women attract me

and yet

I suffer an abnormal fear of abandonment

Dreams of Inner Peace

Hold infinity in your soul, and eternity in your dreams

~

haunting music of the wind, wave counterpointed, kaleidoscope echoed

wildly framed the seascape bowl with solitary figure slowly walking

alone against a world struggling, changing but ever the same

men, mankind, tide, and time change

but the sea is the ever the same

In Casablanca, Rick never said; ‘Play it again Sam’, but he should have

Women can drive a man to remember, and to think

all that may make a guy so take just one more drink

and booze does no good, but his love is treacherous

he can do better, and he will always have memories

I never truly told a friend how much I loved her, and I should have.

The Dear Joan Letter

If you take everything personally and to heart, it will tear you apart.

just

reject

eschew

criticisms

trust yourself

be who you are

have self-awareness

and total self-assurance

display utter self-confidence

try to really know who you are

let all those bastards and bitches

just fuck off to have a really nice day

in their sad dysfunctional relationships

of bad one-time loves and other strangers

some relationships are mere transitory financial transactions.

Road Trip Eclipsed

If you’re always looking back, how can you see the road in front of you.

talking

and laughing

towns passing by

sharing quiet intimacy

marvelling at the scenery

enjoying long roads’ rhythms

discovering unknown real America

driving through the country no one sees

California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming

witnessing the marvel of a dark sun at noontime

knowing those uplifting moments will be long gone

Marmaduke really likes road trips

and so do I

Tunes on Tuesday ~ dating a witch

Dating a witch is a bed of black roses.

Her voice was a voice that witches have,

that tear at a man’s deepest desire,

she spoke and in that bright flame,

my soul was consumed in her fires.

~

Please listen responsibly.

It seems that I know 3 witches, and they are all wayward.  How sweet it is.

A kiss from a witch in the moonlight leads a man forever to his unrequited love’s doom.

Some say that a witch will always have cats.  And that a kiss from a witch can enchant a man forever.  All I know is that I’d rather date an evil witch than any ordinary woman.

Wild Romance

If you want me, just whistle.  You know how to whistle don’t you…..

You are the one

unique and singular

more beautiful to me than

a rainbow in its serried colours

wild, free, and hotter than the sun

romancing you and my life just began

strange, crazy, weird, erotic, feral, and fun

come and ride the river, come ride the moon

I heard their evils sounds

as they all tried to clip my wings

and keep my feet back on the ground

I don’t care, I’ve already burned my bridges

so don’t even look for me, I won’t ever be around

courtship and romance

Life is a matter of courtship, wooing, romance, flirting, and dancing.

~

relationships and friendships may not last

personality and character sometimes alter

feelings attitudes may come from the past

be strong, be brave, be fast, do not falter

kind faithful honest honourable steadfast

and in time, with luck, you may yet win her

heart’s affections and her soul’s truest love

~

embrace courtly love

embrace your lover and dance
