Broken – Original Poem

feet in the sand

By Mark A. Leon

This broken heart is shattered in pieces, but still beating
The light continues to blink “Don’t Walk”
No movement in any direction
No sign of life
I’m falling apart
Don’t let me let you go

I remember the nights we were invincible
The memories left under the sheets
The shots to endless embrace
We swore our youth would never be stolen
Every weekend was an endless beach party

I loved those days
You wouldn’t let them fade
Singing under only the light of the moon
It was a love made for teens
Bar close was only the beginning
That sun dress lying in the sand caressing your flip flops
Splashing waves and blowing kisses
You were all we needed the summer

No school, no work, no glimmer of a world we knew we had to face

Radio on the porch, a beer and great friends
It was a story written in simplicity with a splash of ink to the one I love
The one I would always love

Then we toasted over the harbor with a promise
Friends forever
Fireworks exploded cascading reality
Summer turned to fall
Sun faded with the falling leaves

So too the promise
Let us raise our glasses and with arms wide open one last embrace

There is No Life Without Love – Original Poem

f59f301f80a39912679ba05a4ea96a58--smaller-waist-text-messages

By Mark A. Leon

There is no life without love

Throw out the drugs, hallucinations, drinking and sorrow

Love opens the door to possibility
Breathes life into hope
Gives meaning to this insanity of eternity

Blinded by words
Endless words
Hidden safely in loneliness, we find solace
Solace in meaningless sex
It’s hot, sweaty and shivers the body

It feels good
It feels so good, but for what end?
A momentary feeling of euphoric bliss
To penetrate your soul as your body explodes into mine
It’s an act documented through the ages

For just a few seconds, the most adventurous risky of all acts takes us away
Away from reality
It is the moment when heaven and earth become one
The climax
The sexual explosion
A journey to the center of the Earth
To the hottest place

It is an act of the devil with an orchestra of angels
One that brings the weak to its knees
A shy soldier

It plays with our heart tinkling it with pleasure
Then empties it

Don’t let go
Don’t let it slip away
Feel the burn
Let it race your blood to the core of the house of love

Let that passion touch the love that yearns

So close
Piercing
Let the pain in
Let it come together

There is no life without love
Without the sexual passion, there is no purpose

Together, together is everything

A Victim of This Sexual Dance – Original Poem

ack-and-white-b-amp-w-ballet-black-dance-Favim.com-349932

By Mark A. Leon

Yours was a passion that killed
Every heartbeat a song
Every nail scratch on my back a permanent tattoo of our love

A tiger without regret
Wild in the forest
Ruthless, lethal with unbridled sexual power

You are the dream, we all possess
The hot sweaty nights in mental bondage
Screaming for more; aching for just a single touch of the fantasy

That is your game
Roll the dice
Eagerly, waiting the next move

Stripped naked I eye my predator
Tied down, powerless in this blackness
Eyeing me with every quiet footstep
In the darkness, the glow of your eyes fore shadow the impending doom of lust
My body quivers

You sense the weakness
Drooling for a taste of my lips
A gentle bite, the taste of blood
The sinful animalistic tone

I hear your laughter in the silence
Feel your breath
Ache for the pain

In the moonlight the curve of your breasts tease like the jester in an erotic play
Now, is the moment
When beginning and end come to an explosive union

What will become of this prey
A victim of this sexual dance

Play your game
The fire inside burns
Abuse, use, but leave behind a memory of the love hidden in the fantasy
Let me never awake from this dream

Timeless – Original Poem

images

By Mark A. Leon

I felt a sweet breeze in this Northern sky
A brush of snow tickling this nose
It’s been a long time, but you are still mine
The only one that makes me believe we can live forever

You are timeless
Ageless, without flaw

Turning back time, a childhood dream
Every stop, a reminder

There you were
There you are
There you remain
Timeless

Roads covered in our melody
Sprinkled in the music of the leaves falling from the sky

This year will be even more incredible
This year, once again

I will remember why you are the one
Like a flawless diamond formed by the eternal clock of time
Like a tender flower pure as the morning sun
An autumn rainbow circling my heart
You possess the key to my fate

Time has stopped
Still
The sounds of silent raindrops
A composition so divine
Written for me and you
A dance for two

Alone with you
My timeless love

Last Song – Original Poem

2a2d6992ff5fc7bc511779cee8c190ad--beach-photos-couples-couples-love

By Mark A. Leon

Your love makes me weak
All I’ll ever seek
It makes me want to cry no more

I found you standing there
Alone and scared without a prayer

I dreamed you into my life and now I stand beside

Strangers no more
Strangers no more

In a world to crowded for to see
You opened my eyes
Spreading your wings, I lie on feathers so free
Cuddled in your arms for all to see
This world is for you and me

Strangers no more
Strangers no more

I fell too many times
Fear left me blind
Too many chances lost
A youth wise no more

Waiting for the finale to confess, I never loved the rest
I waited all my life for this sacrifice
Now I know
All those words
Promises made
Emptiness burdened

A prelude to your kiss

I will fall from this sky
In your arms, I will subside
A phoenix rising from the fire

When the smoke clears

Strangers no more
Strangers no more

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
