Friday Fictioneers – Forever All Alone

Darkness covers me like a blanket

Shadows surround my thoughts

My arms wrap tightly around me

Deserted, no one home

You keep me isolated 

My only friend, just you

Smiles ne’er intrude our space

With you, I’m safe and whole

The thorns of my emotions

Keep rising from deep inside

Always in your shadows

Always in your arms

I cannot see the rose

Only thorns of pain

Madness all around me

It keeps me huddled tight

Tomorrow won’t be different

It will always be the same

Fear keeps me shaking

My spirit is tattered, worn

Darkness gives me comfort

Forever, all alone

*****A similar photo by Ted Strutz was posted on Friday Fictioneers back in 2017. I wrote this poem for that image. I didn’t get many views or comments. I thought  I’d edit it a bit and add it to this photograph by Dale Rogerson. Sorry about the two extra words.

Enjoy … Happy Easter Everyone 🌸 😍 🐣 🐰 🌸

A Songbird’s Trill


Peacefulness surrounds me

 as I hear a songbird’s trill.

There are times to be quiet

and time to be peaceful.

No peace is greater 

than the one within yourself.

 I drift away so peacefully.

 Be peaceful

Burning Love


Your love is like a storm of fire

Surrounding me whenever you appear

Sensations, from the heat of your caress,

Burn quickly, through my skin, to scorch my heart,

Your kisses kindle major fires

That flare with craving intensity;

And, when we kiss, the passion that transpires

Ignite the flames of enormous desires.

The flames consume me,

But, the vehement passions are sweet.

They burn and burn, but I relish the heat.

Crimson Creative Challenge – Dream

May all your dreams

on a dark starless night,

take you on a flight

of peaceful repose.

For, tonight is dark,

and fearsome too

but in the morning light 

the sun rises anew.

It can heal hearts,

calm our fears

or, create memories when heard.

Heart Love

Like the Sun and the Moon

Like the sun

You heal me and,

help me to see.

Like the moon

You comfort me,

allow me to sleep.

Like the sun and the moon,

When you enter my room,

there is light, there is peace,

there is LOVE.

You

Manasota Beach    2022©Isadora DeLaVega

You

He looks at her lying there on the blanket. He’s mesmerized by her luscious curves.

The lotion she cautiously applied to her skin glistens in the sun’s rays. 

Her ocean-drenched golden hair trickles droplets onto her shoulders.

She is lying blissfully below an azure sky. 

He is wondering, what she’s thinking?

Her beauty is matched only by the surrounding peaceful beach setting. 

You isolate by choice.

You are not alone.

Passion grasps his emotions with tender feelings of sensuality.

You are captivating.

You are bewitching.

You are mysterious.

You.

Are what I want!

You.

I want to know,

You.

Friday Fictioneers – I Love You

Standing here, I’m wrapped in your woodsy pulp scent. 

You captivate me with your unique shape.

You fit in my hands like a glove wraps around fingers. 

Leather or cardboard bound, your composition is perfection.

Every second I’m with you is like an unknown paradise. 

You fulfill my every need and want. 

With you, I am alive.

 I can be here or anywhere.

 If I’m around the world, you are with me. 

Your words wander through my mind.

You create memories on every page.

 I want to remember them forever.

For you, my love will never die.

I Love You

Crispina Creative Challenge – Beyond the Blue Horizon

Come to the edge, he said. You can see the sea.

I’m afraid, I said.

The menacing sky will soon pass, he said.

Will you hold my hand? I said

I am with you forever and evermore, he spoke with a radiant smile.

Together we leaped across to places beyond the horizon.

A Lover’s Dance

Photo by Marko Zirdum on Pexels.com

~~~~~~~~~

 A lover’s dance is patient and kind.

It feeds your heart, soul, and mind.

It brings you joy and happiness within,

knowing that they will be with you

through thick and thin.

A lover’s dance is captivating.

Only if the partner’s heart

has not been fractured.

A lover’s dance has no mistakes.

It plays no one, not even games.

A lover’s dance is slow and kind,

Easy to learn but hard to find.

Open your heart and let love in

to a lover’s dance.
