If You Don't Love Me

If you don't love me
Someone else will love me
If you don't need me
Someone else will need me
If you don't care about me
Someone else will for me.

When first my morning wakes
It's you that romance my thought.
I approached
And accepted you with all my heart
Because with one glance of your eye
In a garden of sweet remains
You steal my heart from a mountain high.


A gent tipped his hat
in a gesture of greeting
his smile hid a hint
of nostalgia fleeting
not a rod did he speak,but I understood
he had come from a time
when life was good
when a simple thank you
was all one need say
when a little kindness went a long way

I saw an old couple
walking arm in arm
their smiles hid a hit of old world charm
not a word did they speak,but I understood
they had from a time when life was good


She was a real beauty
from Faroe Islands
North Atlantic
but very lonely

She showed all the beauty
of her place
swam in the nude
wow wow wow
my mouth opened wide
she did not smile
id not hide
but glued her eyes

Then she vanished into the sea
jumped from such a high level
my heart sank

I never got to see more
neither of her
nor the Island
she vanished simply banished
into the sea so blue
I wish I could see her once more
but sadly no more

Tender heart tied tears

heart tied tears
trickle down
my foggy forlorn
face .
me back
to those
days dripped
in satin
and lustered
in lace .
The memories
my mind
will never
erase .

Perfect, After you're gone


Better and better everyday,

    Every moment you walk away,

                  Everyday you fade away, Piece by piece by…………………

the horizon

when you look out on the horizon,
tell me what you see
the reflection of what is supposed to be you,
the person on display whom you claim to be
i see nothing but your gentle gaze
staring right into me
put your hands on my heart,
ill show you once more of what i can see

Stretching wings Part II...

This is Trisklion's poem.

Dream 01

I dreamed last night -
And a little this morning -
That I killed nine people in three different ways:
One I pushed under a semi,
Speeding down the highway.
Hear me out – I didn't want to
But the dude was trying to kill
And I realized how much I want to live.

One I let go of while
From the top of a frickin' Skyscraper.
I didn't stay to watch him hit the ground
But I knew by the sound
Of the sirens
He'd made it that far at least . . .

this house

in what ways do you feel that you have made it safe to be in this house?
in what ways do you feel that you have made it safe to be honest in this house?
in what ways do you feel that you have made it safe to be vulnerable in this house?
in what ways do you feel that you have made it safe to be authentic in this house?

in what ways do you feel that you've made it safe to be Queer in this house?

My Hottest Summer...2021

I love the warmth of all fellows
we all are bi everyone knows
but hesitate to admit
science tells us we both sexes
have testosterone and oestrogen
in varying proportion
that's why some guys are
than gals
some gals have the balls
bigger than many hollers up
after all

it's our summer on the beach
let's see who how far can reach
ultimately we will be in open arms
of lovers we beseech
don't you have your own likes and specialities
