On Our Wedding Day – Original Poem

66da77_ab45259aae582d31e2773b89231fa07a

By Mark A. Leon

The stars align, the sun will shine on our wedding day
The sparkle in your eyes; what a big surprise
It will be our special day

Under that veil, I must reveal, that look upon your face
A silly grin; a playful laugh; a lifetime for us awaits

I see the world so clearly now, this I must confess
From the moment I saw those baby blues, my life became one big mess

Seeing you sitting alone in that sunflower dress on the warm spring day
I was forever yours and blinded by all the rest

Today I stand, eternally by your side
A picket fence, a rocking chair, this life promises a crazy ride

The places we will go
The wonders we will see
Together on this magic carpet ride, just you and me.

The steamy sex
The wild nights
Shhhh
Our secret it will be

Heaven and Earth meet when I touch your soul
A fire of life burns for you every second
Existence has meaning and you the words that finish my story

Here before the angels above, a pledge
Before the ones who have loved us, a promise
To the pounding hearts of two former strangers fated to this moment, I am yours
On our wedding day and for all eternity

Now I will rest these tired lips upon yours
A soft wet embrace to seal our bond

Let this moment forever hang on the mantle above the fireplace in our memory bank
I have never loved so much as I do now
My savior, my love, my eternal home

The Smile On Your Face – Original Poem

95d8b2cb16fdc663beefcef14485d6d7--portrait-photos-portrait-art

By Mark A. Leon

The smile on your face says it all
Let’s me know you’ll be there when I fall

When I slip off this cloud and gravity takes hold
My will remains bold

I know you will be there
In my heart, the words flow and in flight I swear

Til the end of time, I will be there
Always to bear
You and me babe
Taking on the world with style and grace

Through the tears, I’ll dry your eyes
Through the sorrow and the long goodbyes

In the heat of passion
With a fierce beating heart
The burning flame kindles this night

To the cold winters days
Safe by the fire and warm soothing light

Without words, you speak to me
Unspoken chapters
Acts played out in our minds

I dreamed of you last night
I dreamed of us flying, guided by the moonlight
Serenaded by the doves
Whistling songs of love

I awoke to the smile on your face
Looking at me as the night erased

Another day with you
A blessing, a gift

My love, my saving grace

Meaning of Life – Original Poem

1664922-bigthumbnail

By Mark A. Leon

The uncontrollable forces of humanity
Let the unpredictable take hold of your senses
To breathe on its own

A blink
Exposing the deepest roots of humanity and self-realization
Isn’t that it
Isn’t that what this ride is all about
Meaning

In the pits of the soul
The trenches of the mind
The depths of reality and imagination crashing in an explosive bang

Huh
That was something

Grounded once again
Level
Balanced
Serenity
Walk on water, taste the air, feel the force of wind

A power so much greater than I
It must be the sign I seek

A creator
A manifest destiny

Looking, looking, looking
Where is that big moment that answers all the questions?

Maybe it is in the beauty of a newborn
The soft touch of animal
The bit of wisdom from the elderly
The peaceful look of the rising sun
The stillness of the moonlight

Maybe I am looking too far
Like a traveler without a destination
A journeyman without a map

The home I seek lies on the steps I take
All around, it is all so familiar
This is the place
This is the time

Answers are near

Bipolar Love Affair – Original Poem

7333d5af94be91bcd62e7164bdd8cc71

By Mark A. Leon

You and me, a perfect match
Bipolar
Racing to the sun and moon
One minute life
One minute death
In between, the space between us

A love affair insane to the eye
A quest for meaning, two stars in the sky

I hear myself saying these words
So loud, they scream, just to be heard
All the voices so loud and clear
Hoping one day you will be near

Laughing in the mirror
The truth is just an illusion
A playful pawn masquerading around the ball
A lift
A dip
A spin for good measure
But when the clock strikes midnight, it all comes to an end with no memory of the pleasure

I read your words written in the clouds
Spelled out by birds flying so very proud
They tell me it’s you watching from above
Reminding me of our true love

You and me, I hope to be
In a better place
Just wait and see

Now I sit, surrounded by me
Naked
Free
Exposed as a newborn baby

There you are, my perfect mate
In life and death and love and hate

No one knows just what we have
But they’ll always remember we made our own path

Walk With Me – Original Poem

600af19ab1d3f9755c139058c99cc2b4

By Mark A. Leon

Walk with me by the Oceanside as I wrap my arms around your side
Stay with me, oh stay with me as the sun bows in the sky
Dance with me in the glow of the starlight and rescue me as I fall into your arms

Please believe, oh baby please believe, I dreamed you in my life
A fate you see, so blissfully entered this heart and it feels so right

Today I am born to this new world
A life I cannot hide
A day with you, a dream come true, I want you by my side

A partner for eternity, to laugh, to cry, to be
A friend til the end, I trust you now
A harbor safe and free

You are to me the sweetest eternity
A day, a minute, now
Perfection rests in that sparkle in your eye
A soulful glance, a second chance and now I see the light

The sun will rise a new world begun
Red letter days ahead
With you and me, I can only see a happiness all around

Walk with me, baby walk with me
I feel your love surround
Stay with me and soon we will be the luckiest souls around

Only you and me, cause we belong

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

Quiet Conversations in My Head – Original Poem

a510d7cd9372eb40ae5710be8bfdf9d4

By Mark A. Leon

You bleed just to know you are alive
Cutting through the skin to expose the blacked blood poisoning the body
This disease so penetrating, so absolute
Charring the heart

Depression is the jester laughing at the crying souls
A pawn to the devil

Offering a little pill for the pain and a razor for the sensation
How many times can I feel before it goes away forever?

A landslide with no bottom
No more tears; no more fears; no more feeling

Whispers of quiet conversations in my head
Visions of your body discovering mine
Just a dream
A manifestation created with a single paid admission to the bottle

A toast to you
The parties, celebrations, milestones, lost loves
All but a memory
Fleeting in the wind of the impending storm
Wash it all away

Take this home
These letters
Suck in the love letters and rain a future of discord

“I love you”
“I miss you”
“I want you forever”
“xoxoxox”
“You and I”
“My rock, my inspiration”

Now the ink fades
What’s going on here?

Lying in this bathtub
Water rising
Too tired to swim
