This Longing

~

So exhausting this longing

curling up like bad milk on the top of my days,

restless soul when it sneaks in my dreams

and it digs, and it sifts

and it screams

for a something that stays

and scratches and lifts

a burning itch in my heart-

So exhausting this longing

flaring up like a fever all alone late in nights

when it tosses and turns

while it scorches and incites

all the wishes and wants

for a something that burns-

So exhausting this longing

stuck like glue to the thoughts in my mind

and it whispers and pleads

for a something to find-

H.O


“…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”

― Homer, The Iliad

In those brief moments

my universe expands at the speed of light

your eyes become stars and your mouth planets

your face becomes the sun

that attracts and ignite my wandering desires,

and I’m hopelessly lost.

H.O


“Love must not entreat,’ she added, ‘or demand. Love must have the strength to become certain within itself. Then it ceases merely to be attracted and begins to attract.”

― Hermann Hesse

-Longing-

~

When I look at you pass by

my emotions flutter wildly within its cage

waking up wants long ago tamed-

And I crave to feel your mountains and streams

by a stroke of time forged and shaped,

the rubbing of naked skin inflamed

smooth with lustrous sweat, and I

eager to ride my desires with no saddle

trotting gracefully when you straddle

a moment and stir up my dreams-

H.O


“I will bathe in your warmth ma petite. Roll you around me until my heart beats only for you. My breath will grow warm from your kiss.”

― Laurell K. Hamilton, Burnt Offerings

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”

Nested in Your Skin

Nested in Your Skin

~

Sometimes I wish I was again nested in your skin

and expressions could flow inside rivers of lust

caressing deeply buried fantasies lying dormant-

Other times I wish among my wants I could entrust

my heart in your loving hands, but to do so requires

to disregard an idea of me and a sense of you

letting go of imposed restrains and simply be-

Sometimes I wish we could be again defined as two

instead of one alone without another, to see

the want behind your eyes, the deep emotions

that rocked my nights knowing inside my heart

a life with you was not an end but a new start,

oh how I wish I was again nested in your skin-

H.O

“I am inhabited by a cry.

Nightly it flaps out

Looking, with its hooks, for something to love.”

― Sylvia Plath

I Never Learned

I Never Learned

~

I never learned to love

the way you wish I loved you

like flowers kissed by morning dew

to kiss the same I never knew,

like roaring waves caressing sand

I never learned to hold your hand

the way you wish I held you-

And like the sun so hot and bright

to keep you warm through the night

I never learned to do it right

the way you wish I kept you-

H.O

Chasing Stars

Chasing Stars

~

If courage had to chase the stars

the ones that shoot across the skies

so fast that eager lovers eyes

will miss to wish upon once more-

If I could have as did before

when dreamers lands I traveled

I could then wish for you to see

how deep inside a look unraveled

my weaken dreams for evermore-

But gaining courage it’s often hard

no fairy tales of shinning knights

to conquest lands or touch a heart,

then once alone the cowards way

to wish upon in lonely nights

across the sky and so far away

for you to be my shooting star-

H.O
