Knockin’

if love came a knockin’

I would demand protective custody

and command an investigation

I would call in the Sheriff

and ask for an enquiry

get answers to a thousand questions

I would roll up the red carpet

turn over the welcome mat

and after careful consideration

I might join you at Starbucks

and share a story or two

and look deep into your eyes

and dissect every answer

and listen to each inflection

and upon careful consideration

I would barricade my heart

and slow down my drumming soul beats

and bring out my cunning intellect

and stand strong upon my feet

because I couldn’t take another hit

so I would call upon my Bodyguard

beg him to rescue my raging hormones

protect me from my sensual leanings

incarcerate my wandering eyes

incapacitate my roving fingers

and seal my lustful lips

take my body into custody

tie me up with silken ropes

and hide me until next Valentine’s Day

because with love

I never

give up

hope

Lovers

 

I look for you in darkness

moments when my heart

skips beats, breathless

with longing

and I pray for you

to rescue me

 

I look for you in aloneness

moments full and complete

wanting to share

in that middle place

where lovers go

and souls mate

 

I look for you in Paris

while lovers laugh

hands held

dreams shared

memories made

never to be repeated

 

I look for you

but you’re not here

Mis-Understand

 

I don’t try to understand your pain

nor empathize with what you gain

by making choices of denial

waiting for time to pass

all the while forgetting

how

to

live

 

I don’t try to understand

a choice to abstain

from love and passion

intimacy that is a God-given-gift

the closest we can ever come to

Heaven

on

Earth

 

I do understand

death and war

for death is a beginning

and wars are never ending

but Love is eternal

 

and more than that

I must agree

with the Rabbi’s message

sent to me

“the greatest of these is Love”

Secrets

 

I know

your secrets

the kind the world

would kill for

the kind a woman

would die for

 

I know this

about

you

 

I know your weaknesses

the kind the world

would exploit

the kind a woman

would cherish

 

I know this

about

you

 

I hold your heart

although as yet

you do not know

it has been stolen

but I know this

and you suspect this

about

me

Damn Man

envy dripped from lipsticked lips

pencil sharp her botoxed brows

with piercing eyes

she assessed her prey

and screeched

“She’s such a cow!”

 

 

her girlfriends huddled by her side

held back her anorexic arms

stiletto heels

tap

tap

tapped

a bomb they attempted

to disarm

 

“he’s not worth it!”

they shouted in her ear

Dj Tiesto rocked the floor

“it’s not the first time he’s cheated on you,

show the bum the door!”

 

 

a tear escaped

from kohl-rimmed eyes

she muttered

mesmerized:

 

“her boobs are fake

and so’s her tan

why can’t she find

her own damn man!”

A Love Song

“By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not…” Song of Solomon 3:1

 

her head upon her pillow

she reaches

her fingers touch

the silky sheets

the empty space

the sacred place

inside of her

unoccupied

waiting for him

 

she whispers

my beloved is mine, and I am his

come to me, mi amor

I burn for you

I give you my body

make love to my soul
