Here's some inspiration from last competition:

You and me
me with you

never to part
as we walk the Earth;

from now till forever
if forever do exist
our love will remain;

each day, with every breath
we will conquer life
and share the weight of struggles;

waking up to the blessing
of togetherness is a bliss
that we can't compare;

from sunrise to sundown
looking ahead even in cloudy skies
or moonless nights, we can smile;

happiness, grief, fear or wild adventure
we can make it, we will get pass anything
we trust that we are safe in each other's hand.

Hepcat61 said:Love Abides

The world where love abides,
Where sounds of anxious crowds reside,
Your words have pushed aside

Your single glimpse can send
The rest away as we commend
This place our own pretend

The place you tell your tale
And world, whose claims between assail,
Is lost in your regale

Lost time in tigerís fur
Where laughter fills in, hearts concur;
Like strokes, a kittenís purr.

Our love those strokes have known,
In every wordís express has shown,
This world is us alone

AtoMikbomb said:Home
We made love;  
syruped with stevia  
& sleepy time tea  
A shoegaze standstill    
something subdued  
from spotify ensues  
Being ushered down  
the yawning black  
enclosed in beryl bands  
Maybe there's dark matter  
stashed in your eyes...  
Climbing you;  
my cedar  
cause' there's nowhere  
to fold my wings...  
Nowhere more home  
for me to sleep  

Here's more inspiration from last competition:

oriental center

Under the crescent reflective moon
An eastern cryptic lore
The alabaster slopes
Sit on the sun set shores...
On its flank my ship goes inward
My energy drawn down the ravine
From my decent off the mountains
My paradise lost in a dream...
An inlet to the vesica pisces
Found under a Tibetan sacred tree
A generational spot to port
Center in a sacred place to sea...
Through a gateway to the holy city
There sits two symmetrical planes
From separation to oneness
The female water it contains...
An observer to the observed
Her flower of life in a tree
Is overlapping in spheres
My sail spread on her ocean breeze...
I now wash in the moon shine lake
My soul journeys the silver river
Slow motion of her hand to come
As her heart now draws me in her...

Seven heavens

We sit broad our river
As thoughts flow none resist
The world is now tempered
For me only you exist...

A dove of light shines smoothly
Through our handheld minds
A love wave crashes slowly
Through our sensual time...

This inner chase to ever fly
As love's objective point
The head of the outer face
No priest can anoint...

I gently kiss your lips
Such a lovely new taste
So delicious to sip
We both embrace no haste...

Your eyes look into mine
Our stars stretch into one
A spiral door opens to rhyme
As we spin into suns...

Transforming into light
Our synergy then splits
With hands left over right
The sun will never sit...

Now an ocean of darkness
Is all covered in naught
Our heart becomes the river
Our soul will never stop...

The essence of woman
A vision of the flower of life
The sweetness of honey
Beauty grown in the holy garden...

She walks with purpose
And speaks with compassion
A brown tipped flower
With eyes of glassy soul...

In tune with herself
In harmony with the cosmos
The sound of lovely wind
As she talks to the moon...

A witness of the maker
A bringer of the night
She shines brighter than the sun
To dim the highest light...

Will the earth spin?
Or the world be fulfilled?
A thought of substance
She makes the deal...

the story of a dream

I had a dream, a dream that was soo amazing that it felt real
Although it was unbelievably a dream
A dream where everything was all good
A dream where although it sometimes rained and got tough,
There was no reason to ever complain
A dream of two individuals joining as one
Yes there were rainy days but together we create the sun
A dream where we could be doing absolutely nothing yet still it would be fun
There was a special connection where I absolutely loved every second
A dream where your touch was soo heavenly that we melt together
A dream of eternity because nothing breaks a bond of forever
You and I were meant to be together
Sun shinning in any weather with fingertips as light as feathers
A dream where our flaws were so small that to each other
They were nothing at all
Because our love defeats all
A dream where just like I do , you never hold the past against me
We help and encourage each other to succeed
This is the story of a dream
A dream of a true match made in heaven
Call it a dream team

She said to write a poem about romance

And I laughed

For How do I sum up all of what we have been and are and will be?

At the least
I can say

I miss you
And your lips grazing my ear when you say goodnight

I miss you
Pulling me closer even in your sleep
Even when your angry

I miss you
And watching movie after movie
Staying up until four am talking about our backyards as children
And fighting about utter nonsense

I miss you
Telling me about the weather
And reading my mind
Giving me that look when I know the things
About you
Someone else has dismissed

And I miss
Watching it snow
Your hand on my waist
Playing our guitars
Creating things together
Kissing eachother after
Never getting over ourselves

I miss you loving me
I miss it so much
I hope itís not too late for us darling
I hope
Just because If I miss you for much longer
I might go insane

Two decades
Such a long time
It took us that much
Wasted time
We touch

Young adults
Push and pull
Turned away just to
Grow and live life

For granted
Not forgotten
Waiting in vain?
More like
Resigned to a memory
Of what could have been
Us, together

It took just a second
The moment you said your name
And this is it, the stranger
That never was
Becomes someone
As finally

I lived, I toiled
I traveled and traveled more
Away, in sharp curves and rough roads
I didn't cry
Never blinked
Even in grief
But today, I feel like

If happiness could wretch my emotion
any more than the loud beats that it blinds
Then, sorrow and pain, is just a pinch in the gut
Do I love you?
My answer will be the same as all those years ago
I don't think so

This is way more
Than what I can say in words
Nor express in deeds
Numbness that hurts
And I go crazy
And angry

For the time
That we lost
To what?
Like a regret that I don't want to regret
but regretted that I don't, but still, I don't
Do I love you?
I don't think so.

But more.

I love you is best said..

I love you is best said ...

The first time
The time after that
To the one that matters most
With every ounce of emotion
Sober maybe drunk
Whispered softly in the ear
Yelled at the top of your lungs
Whenever its time to go
After some corny jokes
Broken between kissing lips
Before during and after sex
When tears are flowing
When smiles are showing
Sunrise and sundown
Written in the sky
Drawn into the ground
Sound asleep or by the beach
Holding hands or cuddled in bed
On a notebook scribbled in pen
When it makes you feel alive
Even at the same time
Any moment you feel its right
Because I love you is best said not held inside

So go tell that person again or even if you haven't
Just mean it...because that's when I love you
Is best said.

A Collective of Love

Our love isn't measured by thrust

It's measured by understanding
and sharing

Pieces of a life so enthralling,
just brushing against each other
In the night is our erotic

Nobody can own universal romance

You take a vow and live within the glorious
and the bittersweet moments

Walking hand in hand, a union of spirits,
a collective of love

That's our love, brilliantly shining, dancing
in a summer breeze

White Tiger

I fantasize about your tapered fingers
Trailing and fisting my hair around your knuckles
Caressing down my sides, leaving glowing,
Blue embers in your wake
Thumb brushing the skin in between my hip bones
And lips, the color of an arctic
Caressing the shadows over my neck
And the paleness of my thighs

Leaving stains, little constellations
Where you touched me
Spreading galaxies of purple, grey, blue
Across my skin,
Stars where your eyelashes fluttered against my cheek,

Neon lights flickering
As I feel your heartbeat on my lips, tongue
Shivers running down your spine
And my own breath trembling
I get lost in the warmth of your eyes
The heat from your body
The utter safety, content, security
A safe haven in a world of
Chaos and terror
Volcanoes and lies
Wrapped in your arms
Listening to your soft, gentle voice

Leave your fire on my lips,
Burning in my eyes,
Stinging at my fingertips,
Creeping up my thigh,
Flaming inside of me,
And surrounding my heart and lungs
Exhaling fire lost in the shades of ice

His eyes are what got me
His hands are what swayed me
His kiss is what captured me
His words helped calm
His touch is what kept me around

When we fight we fight
When we make love there is more passion than any drug could ever muster
so what keeps me around this long?

When I look in his eyes I know he loves me
he doesn't have to tell me
but I like it when he does

the last thing I expected was to fall for a man like him

Sure he doesn't have much money
but I like that
he tells horrible jokes
I like that too

I hate when we fight
why can't we just make love?

Just Let Me Love You

We'll meet for coffee at 4am
All the city sleeping
Except for us
We've had this semi-romance forever  
Without spending any time together
Harsh fluorescent lighting
Won't dim my admiration  
We're lovers who never had time to love
Just coffee
Dark, no sugar
