Climbing Morning Glories

Morning glories my climbing vines- Old nightshade faded late- Early dawn saw sunrise mauve- My love never sleeps past eight- Old nightshade faded late- With sun rays golden show- Horizon’s orb bring hues of orange- Breaking light warms nights of cold- With sun rays golden show- Lover awaken from slumber- Breaking light warms nights of…

Blanket of Flowers

A blanket of flowers ~ You place me upon ~ The scent of orchids ~ Held in my arms ~ Looking downward from tower ~ Your king to my pawn ~ Flittering of my eyelids ~ Deceived by your charm. ~ All consumed by your power ~ You spike the innocent fawn ~ Yet I…

Dandelion Dances

My mind connived~ But did not fathom ~ The rolling ideas ~ So darkly hidden ~ The plaintive wrath in ~ I jumbled around ~ Overloaded a delicate mind ~ Fretting all about ~ Watching sparrow fly ~ The soar so high, infinitely kind ~ Dwarfed inside a dell ~ Greenery so plush I lay…

Garden On Fire

In the sunrise hue~ Awakened by such-~ Your softness touch-~ Discovering you~ Then I knew-~ In that clutch~ Romance so much~ And all was new~ Shaking with tension~ Touching your petal~ Scent of sweet desire~ No need to mention~ Where passion did settle~ That garden with fire~ ©2016dedhedpoet Andrea Travis

Flower Bed

In the morning dew~ I found you~ Awakened by touch~ Your softness was such~ I gasp in delicacies~ Unsure tensions flee~ Beauty enraptured~ As scents were captured~ Breathing you in~ I sank deep within~ Caressing vines~ Lips that pine~ For velvet attraction~ Total embrace reaction~ To pluck you up~ Overfilling my cup~ ©2016dedhedpoet Andrea Travis

Oh, you know what you do

Hours I could spend Listening to your faint whispers Arouse within me, my passions The purity of soul you draw from my lips Ever the tender extractions Gently you pull my sighs Kept hiding deep inside Mine heart pounding and crashing Like full moon tides rising Caressing the sandy dunes Your susurrations ignite pyres The…

Shattered Green Glass

Pathways covered in green glass ~ Hurting my ears it shattered ~ Will the nonsense stop at last ~ He left my clothes all tattered ~ Hurting my ears it shattered ~ Something broken inside my head ~ He left my clothes all tattered ~ Am I alive or now dead ~ Something broken inside…

Broken Clay Pots

The only heart I had ~ Now breaks ~ As hardened clay pots ~ You’re frail and fragile ~ Bones ~ Protected by slipping ~ Skin I shall be at my end ~ My nighttime closing in ~ The heart I have left ~ Blows away a sand ~ Left decrepit by ~ The only…

Looking for You, villanelle

I got lost, looking for you- Searching deep within a soul- Now, I’ve lost myself too! I looked in many faces, only a few- I searched the clouds above that roll- I got lost, looking for you- Rolling around in morning dew- So alone and in the cold- Now, I’ve lost myself too! Have I…

Crawling towards love

Do I understand what love is? Have I fallen into it before? Convincing myself I knew not- Possibly I tried in my youth- Now younger days have passed me by- Still I know nothing of love- Walking towards it- At a mere crawl- I write pages of it- But all turn to a scrawl- Giving…

Spyders & Lust

You say you want me… but you know me not. You think I’m sweet and delicate- Like I’ve never fought? Gentle as a razor, supple like a dream….. I’d let you get close and watch you as I sting. Its only in my nature, I only want to be loved- But when your tossed away…
