Castaway

Castaway

~

Shifting oceans of your body send me adrift

with every touch and kiss I could be lost

guided only by the stars in your eyes-

My desires look for shores on your skin

solitary islands to hide myself away-

I dream of being in your arms tossed

into the fiery waves of wild desires,

a perfect place to be your castaway-

Glint of Light

Glint of Light

~

There is nothing I can hold forever, nothing more

than a moment, hesitating resolve to leave behind

a glint of light that shines right through

and holds me there, because of you

so lost in dreams sometimes myself I find-

Oh how I want you, I did before

but let it go, sometimes seems best

to encase my heart inside my chest

and shut my eyes to keep me blind

to a glint of light that shines right through-

H.O

Before I Met You

Before I Met You

~

I dreamt of you before I met you

of pale white skin and thick full thighs

I dreamt of blue trapped in your eyes

and lost control around the curve

your lips would draw into a smile

the subtle laugh I much admired

that make me wish I could preserve

my dreams of you before I met you.

“Hold fast to dreams,

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird,

That cannot fly.”

― Langston Hughes

Red

red lips isolated in white

Red

~

How that red will catch my eyes and torture dreams

sprouting schemes

within my wants and my desires

in tempting smiles

which paint illusions in red.

And red the color of my flame

underneath an aching pain

of dreams forgone,

but in a smile your lips prolong

a yearning look I entertain

while blindly lost in coral red.

H.O

“what red lips you have,” he said in her ear. Did she dare say it? “All the better to kiss you with, my dear,” she replied. And then their lips met.”

A Smile and a Look

A Smile and a Look

~

What to do with a smile

that you freely display?

We can play, we can play

all the games of attraction

and to flirt with reaction

to your lips soft and red

or pretend that instead

I’m a slave to your smile

What to do with a look

that you tenderly give?

I’ll relive and relive

even after your gone

by the night ‘til dawn

I will always remember

how I wish to surrender

my lone heart for a look.

Conceived

~

Your hair was infused with sunlight

your eyes drawn with blue from the skies

your heart tenderly forged in the flames

of the hottest fire around

and later doused with honey for it was found

that sweetness and heat mix well,

fiercely created with a powerful spell

your lips were carved on carnelian

to make men fall and claim

that anyone who to kiss them dare

with one taste will go insane.

H.O

“As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”

Si Pudiera (If I could)

Si Pudiera

~

Si por ti pudiera descorchar el cielo

y derramar azul de tus ojos un reflejo

para embriagarme lento

perdido en tu mirada-

Si por ti pudiera desgarrar las nubes

en un lago de besos ahogarme en tu boca,

y si acaso pudiera recortar estrellas

iluminar los sueños que tu amor evoca

y lo haría todo, si por ti pudiera.

If I could

~

If for you I could open up the skies

I would pour the blue to reflect your eyes

slowly intoxicated behind every look

only if I could-

I would tear apart every passing cloud

 and in my delusion

in a lake of kisses drown inside your mouth .

If for you I could trim the shiniest stars

to light up your dreams

for if love beseems

I would do it all only if I could.

H.O
