Stranger in Flight – Original Poem

34de3e36fb1b18ebef9f766a178ce6a9

By Mark A. Leon

Let me into your life stranger in flight
Thirty-five thousand feet and speechless
A life time I will share with you from take-off to landing
East bound plane drifting from this western sunset

Adventures we will have
Children we will raise
Discovery, we will find

Sexuality steams from your mystery
My dream girl without a name
A perfect match we will be
So much in common until we speak

I see you with every passing mile
Me, just a stranger across the aisle
No dream, no fantasy, no daydreaming of a life together

Your thoughts are of the life that awaits at final destination
A loved one at the gate

Husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, family
None include me, your future husband that will never be

For a moment, I felt an energy exchange
Perhaps you saw me
For a glimmer in time, I piqued your curiosities
Maybe a chance I could have

No, just my imagination on caffeine
It has been a long day, a long week, a long year
I feel you can energize me back to a time of youthful love

Two giddy children excited and afraid
The moment just before the first awkward kiss that would be our greatest memory

For two hours, I fell in love with you, my blond angel in the sky
My stranger in flight

The wheels have extended and the ground has found a permanent place for this flying machine

Walking away, you get further and further, out of my life

I wave in hopes of catching your attention, but in reality, I am only finding inner closure

Goodbye love
Goodbye my stranger in flight

Dance Between the Sheets – Original Poem

ac4c433bc0df02a8bc413caba3989e27

By Mark A. Leon

Your black lace panties still dangle on the end of my bed
Scent of that defiant perfume lingers in the air
Heart still racing from the memories of a few short hours ago

Still feel the softness of your hair as it slipped through my fingers and my last snapshot is the back of your hair and naked back

A silhouette of absolute perfection

A night so wrought in raw animal passion, now a fleeting reminder

You handcuffed me with your mind
A sultress with the eyes of an angel, the touch of a fragile feather and the bite of sharp broken glass

You left scars
Bite marks
Blood from nails of ecstasy

I begged for the pain
The hot wax dripping
The long deep soul sharing kisses
The thirst for more

In the brief hours of rest, I was lulled by your heartbeat
It cast a spell and sent me to a fantasy world where you and I ruled a kingdom of two
A blessed place where fate guided two strangers through the forest of heaven

Your breasts heaving into mine
Legs wrapped tight
Hands embraced

I held on knowing in the end, I would lose the subconscious tug of war

049a0a57a9118c35cf174c106f0e7826Sun beats through the window as it rises to the pinnacle of the sky
I toss, still craving the touch of your inner thigh
Moaning at the thought of one more touch
One more penetrating moment

But you’re a runaway
Escaping from my arms
Calling the road your home

A wicked game you play, my angel of the darkness

I Stare at the door hoping for one more dance under the sheets

Goodbye Doc – Original Poem

Beach-Rays-of-Light-Wp-long-goodbye

By Mark A. Leon

I always wondered if our love was strong enough to sustain
Maybe tomorrow we would be better
So many questions unanswered

You had me at first sight
A cliché formulated into a reality
A Gatsby moment frozen in time
Every girl a prize
You, a vision, beyond reason, beyond attainment

I wished to see you again for minutes, days, months
Time would pass without purpose
Then you appeared, again, the girl who captivated my heart

I found you under the glimmer of the setting sun in the darkness of this abandoned building

One toast and we were both drawn into this fantasy
With a sip of champagne, we leaped

I burned for a love I never thought I would attain
We were a country song with a tragic ending
I perfect love with an imperfect story

I found treasure on the sands of Rincon
Touched heaven in the mountains of Blue Ridge
I sipped the wine of our savior from your lips

Those Polaroid moments, so still, so permanent in my heart
So few, yet so important to our journey

Now you kiss the fields of the Midwest
I soak in the crest of the coastal wave

I watch the sun rise ask I think about where you are
I remember fondly

Perfection never lasts

It comes unexpectedly and kisses you with the power of a waterfall and the scent of sweet honey

Goodbye Doc

For a love unfulfilled, I ponder
For the strength you instilled, I cherish

I’m older now, but for you I still feel like a child

I Was Too Young – Original Poem

Last-Journey

By Mark A. Leon

In a world wired for two, I hear your heartbeat above all the noise
In a world void of answers, filled with empty dreams and doubts amidst, I forgot you

Hypnotized by instantaneous emotion, swept away like a cloud caught in the wind, I was lost
Driven by the need for acceptance by the drones of an uncivilized land, I fought an invisible enemy

I was too young
Too restless
I thought I wanted more
To see the road and live by its words

I was led by the constant pressure for more
The depths of my soul
Passionate for meaning

I run away from my inspiration
Your voice has remained
My direction home

No excuse
No looking back

Life is a torturous journey to a conflict of light and fear

Your kindness hangs on my mind
So much time lost
So much I want back
To remember the days we never experienced together

My greatest treasure was your kindness
I squandered it in the depths of the mud as I dredged on

I needed room
I was suffocating in this closet
Closing in
Inch by inch

I had to break the chain to find what I had all along

I was too young
A hazard
Reckless abandon

Now youth reborn
Be mine

My Endless Love – Original Poem

Rainbow

By Mark A. Leon

Rock a bye baby

Rock a bye off to sleep you go

My beautiful wreck

Brushing my fingers through your hair, it is all so familiar as the nightmares rage on

Your demons chase you to the edge of sanity straight into the glass

Shattered with perfect edges, they cut through my soul

Under the light of a rainbow and cleansed by the rain you swam deep into the great unknown waters of life

Led by confused clarity, you sought escape

As your body disappeared toward the end of that rainbow, I felt you closer than ever before

High atop the balcony I stood gazing away as the world disappeared leaving a painting of the ocean and your silhouette

Tomorrow you will wake and we will create the dream for one more day

Stay tonight for tomorrow you are gone

Far away under the same sky we will dream together

It is a surreal novelette we have written

From the simple gestures to the mountainous climbs

It is a story that began in the roaring 20’s and will last throughout time

Rock a bye baby

Rest your weary eyes

As you drift away into another place, remember you are my endless love

Just for a Moment, We Were Still – Original Poem

hands1

Just for a moment we were still

Hands touched in that dark movie theater as you leaned you head gently on my shoulder whispering ‘I Love You’ for the first time

Time stood still
A pause on the soundtrack of our lives

Just for a moment we were still; the two of us trapped in our own cinematic romance, seeing the world outside but choosing to remain behind the screen

Stars of a fleeting love story that will never die and transcend time
A world about to crumble; demons lurking in the past and a life about to change
It was there that we found light in that darkness

Meaning defined
I knew I had to let go
Your skin against mine; so soft, so safe, so warm

You had to bleed on your father’s grave to breathe life, finding a relationship once again through his dying mother’s eyes

Like a zombie without a path you wandered
A hall pass to nowhere until that moment
Five, four, three, two, one stop

I see the glimmer in your eyes alone in the back row
For the first time, a sparkle
The movie so familiar; the scene so emotional

In that Garden State a seed was planted and in time a beautiful flower it will be

Just for a moment we were still and life began

Another’s Arms – Original Poem

image

In another’s arms you rest
His chest a pillow
Mind racing with thoughts of a happiness beyond your reach
He whispers in your ear, but you here nothing

This romantic cinema projecting in your thoughts takes you away to a fantasy

Soul to soul
Lips to lips
Fate hands you the card of lovers destined to a journey together

image

Under the silk sheets
Skin touches
Body heat exchanges
Emotional numbness dominates

You are here
Invisible to human connection
A shell of a body
A core of uncertainty

Surrounded by the unknown darkness, only one absolute exists
Love of another
Love so profound; so defined by unquestionable perfection
Destiny and fate intertwined

You close your eyes and dream
Tomorrow will bring a new sunrise
