Looking (We go on)

~

And I go on looking

for the one to touch places never touched before,

a hundred years of loneliness for one day in her arms

(a day in the realm of time another hundred years)

And you go on looking

for the one that holds the other missing part

and will chart all his dreams on a map of your heart

(only part of your dreams as you carry his half)

And we go on looking

never finding roads leading straight to each other

as we share the same sky and walk the same earth

(only twice, once for you and once for me)

our dreams run aground, our rivers run dry

our search for each other, no hello, no goodbye

parallel akin paths never meet one another-

H.O


“I felt you before I knew of your existence, maybe it was a hint from the universe to continue on the yellow brick road, so when I would find you along my travels I would simply just know.”

Envejecer contigo (Grow old with you)

love-life-death

 

Envejecer contigo

~

Quisiera envejecer en tus ojos

el amor colgado en las pestanas y despertar

con el sol en tu cama y mis brazos en tu cintura,

cuanto quisiera mi amor envejecer como pintura

que tus manos han creado colgada en las paredes

de recuerdos vivos, mientras en tus ojos envejezco

tiernamente, el sabor del goce salvaje escondido

entre las arrugas que tu tocas creando música

en mis oídos, mientras envejezco contigo-


Grow old with you

~

I wish to grow old in your eyes

love hanging from your lashes and wake up

with the sun on your bed and my arms on your waist.

I wish I could my love grow old like a painting

created by your hands hanging on the walls

of our memories while in your eyes I grow old

with tenderness, the flavor of wild lust hidden

in between wrinkles that you play creating music

to my ears, while I grow old with you-

H.O


“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”

I Wish I Was

I Wish I Was

~

I wish I was sunlight

to lick the milk of your thighs

and taste secrets ‘tween your legs

Don’t you know?

I built my castles close to shore

and every time I want much more

you hold me captive in sky filled eyes

Release me woman in roaring waves

to catch my breath and softly say

I wish I was the cool soft rain

to wet the skin I so much crave

Don’t you know?

I built my castles close to shore

for you to wash them all away.

-H.O-

Love Forgets

Consumed-By-Cupid-spillwords

 

Love Forgets

~

When I see you my heart forgets-

A thunder beat so strong across my eyes

reflecting deep desires, but then too late

your fading smile reminds me

that love forgets to knock, so many lives

to gash their hearts and me alone I simply watch

how love forgets I’m still alive-

If just one night would be forever

inside my dreams

when all I do so empty seems

when done alone,

when love is gone

to other parts while broken hearts

remember love that used to be.

-H.O-


Our lives may not have fit together,

but ohhh did our souls know how to dance”

Home

~

Have you ever seen across the distance and far away

a place you feel could be your home?

Your eyes today became that place

but far they seemed like strangers land,

your eyes, your lips, your tender hand

to build a shelter for my soul-

And I contend to see you across and far away

your skies so clear your oceans sway

and call me softly to swim across,

to plant your earth until I’m old

and build my home

between your arms to safely stay-

H.O

“Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.”

Thirst

Thirst

~

Is it wasted love with no direction doomed

to cease the beat of aging hearts?

Neurons flooded with kisses left in memories

broken through years with many parts

scattered all around-

~

And years of being alone I found

the need to touch and hold

remains the same as we get old,

a lonely art of dreaming up

such moments past-

~

If in my heart a need to love could last

to beat along another one ‘til then

when life no longer left

to feed a dying breath,

at last is worth to love again!

H.O

“Pressing hard against her mouth

rainfall of kisses after long drouth,

her thighs flaming with desire

I must burn in everlasting fire”

Cold Ashes

Cold Ashes

~

It is hard to believe that cold ashes

were ever fire, burning hot within,

gone desires restless swam at night

deep in my loins wanting what might

have scorched your skin-

And I was willing to let you consume

every part belonging to you,

every wish I ever knew a slave

to your touch, which too soon

was turned cold and left to ashes-

~

H.O

“Love. Of course, love. Flames for a year, ashes for thirty.”
