Yorkshire Logic???
"It'll never amount to owt"
As they say in Yorkshire.
"Ahh mean, 'ers 'int love wit 'ere ole man
'Ant thou's married too!
Giv ova 'ant grow a pair son....."

"I know, don't you think I've been thru this a million times in my heart and head"?
"But I can't give up on her, I haven't told her my feelings, I couldn't.... She'd run a mile, and I'd lose a friend, my heart would shatter into a trillion pieces"

"Aye, but 'ere know thou's sweet 'ont 'ere"
"Lassies know such things"

"But she teases me, leads me on,flirts with me, manipulates my heart".


"Nowt good will come of it I'm tellin' ye,
It'll all end 'int tears...probably yers too"

"I know that at my age I should know betta,
But no age is exempt to love"
I cling to hope,
Each and any crumb that might Indicate that she'll allow me to hold her in my arms
And kiss her..."

"So take your Yorkshire logic,
Your Northern pragmatism,
I can't see the wood for the trees in this 'affair' I know
But I live in hope that one day
She'll tell me that she loves me..."

Weekend away....
You've left me,
Gone away...
For the weekend
And I am left in suspended animation....
Missing you....
Reflecting on the last words
we shared.

Forty eight hours of
Letting go
But that's love too
No words,
No texts
No contact...
Only memories
Only suppressed feelings
And my unspoken love...
...For you.

One kiss....
One kiss....

Love is just a kiss away dearest Ann....
Just the gentlest of touches between thine lips and mine....
One scintilla is all it would take for us to fall tumbling impetuously in love.

The cosmos has conspired for our love to be manifest
From Genesis our love was destined to ignite,
One kiss would kindle an already unspoken passion into a roaring inferno of love
A conflagration of devotion,
romance and daily yearning would be ours....
She is my vision of loveliness. Yet the emblem of unrequited love

I could write you a poem but it would never be good enough, for you are a poem

I could write that you are beautiful but my words wouldn't do you justice.

I could write how important and special you are but your value exceeds human understanding.

I could write how wonderful your mind is but my vocabulary is insufficient and weak

I could write how **** you are,
That my body belongs to you,
But my body, my self is unworthy
of you

I want to tell you how deeply I love you
But I'm unable to describe the depth of the oceans

You are the collective works of Yeats, Keats, Shelley and Tennyson.

Secret Mistress
You have me in the palm of you hands....
Cupping my heart and my life, balancing my heartbeats on your finger tips.
in which hand will I be held today?
Will you let me slip far enough to give me a scare?
Only to keep me for later and reel me in and place my heart in your emotional 'keep net'

And that's it isn't it...?
Whenever you want me you know I'm there, waiting for your call, your summons.
And I respond like a lap dog, a pet who secretly adores you
You.... my secret mistress

Ann
Ann
Her words piece my heart leaving a luminous stain which spread  like a red dye of passion flooding through my veins until every corpuscle glowed with a radiant luminosity of love for her.

Staring into my eyes gently she fanned these embers of love within me into flames that consumed my soul.
Words formed by her are indistinguishable.
As my heart takes control of my conscious brain

Let me enfold you in my arms!
Tenderly smother your cheeks with kisses, smell your hair and whisper words of love.
Oh but we could be together, sharing our remaining years-My Queen!
My destiny!
My eternity!!

Addiction...
My lovelorn heart is full of passion after sharing time with you.

I want to dress you in sensuous  words of love & disrobe you with dancing fingers of passion.

Every contour of your face is etched in lines of love on my bursting heart.
Waiting to be translated in kisses should you allow.

The nape of your neck invites my attention
Her jewellery embellishes its kissability and tantisizes my fantasies.

I hang on  every word...
Watching, ****** like as your tongue  and lips form words.


Your spell upon me was cast millennium ago but I never knew it
I feel it coursing through my veins
Like a embalming drug, chilling​ me to my marrow with desire

She is my addiction and I'll never have enough....

Out of nowhere...
Suddenly as if out of nowhere you come into my mind.
How?
What?
Why?
I see you -.
Ethereal
Smiling,
Your eyes strangely luminous
Your lips seductively parted as if searching for a kiss floating around the room....
And then your gone....
Leaving just your smile behind
Leaving me wondering....
If you know... that
You really have  beautiful eyes Linda
Your a drug... the more time I spend with you....the more I want...

Desire...?
When I say "I want you..."
I don't mean I want to make love to you.
No, I "desire you"
I want to hold you in my arms
Holding your cheeks to tenderly kiss you.
I want to irradiate your body with delicate kisses that silently whisper my desire, to illuminate your loveliness

Just because you're in my mind last thing at night
First thing in the morning , doesn't mean "I love you"
I don't think so anyway....
No....I want to hold you,
To be close to you
Caress you, hold your hands
And kiss every finger over and over...
With every word, every line she was in my heart. The sentiments caused so much heartache that my heart was close to bursting so on auto pilot the words poured forth.She is unobtainable, my unrequited Lovely One.
My verses are for her & I’m unable to show her

Loneliness
Sometimes my loneliness overpowers me,
Heavier and more powerful than a dray horse on my shoulders
Tugging at my soul,  straining my heart and squeezing my tear ducts

How can one feel lonely in a family?
Outside, exteriorised, unlovable.
Feelings are intangible, they're just there for the owner to be tormented and burdened by.
Influenced by others, those one believes one is loved by, understood and cherished by.

Friendships too can have this effect.
A short text, ignored call can send one spinning downwards into the abyss of claustrophobic loneliness
Where rescue is a desire of fantasy.
Loneliness is my brother...

Infiltrated...
At the most random, inappropriate times she enters my mind,
The unrequited one, my desiring, my love.
At these times she fills my mind, my heart
Tricking, coursing slowly through me
Filling me with images of her,
Recalling her last words and texts.

My pupils dilate, my heart palpates
My imagination wanders "what is she doing at that moment?"
Did she think of me?
I think not....
But....
Forever I will love and desire you.

Secret love
Scurry away eastwards errant clouds....
Blown by wind as if angry with its task
Laden with moisture they rise higher and higher-
Freight trains of the skies
Have you room to carry of love and my desire onwards on your journey??
Carry them Eastwards  to my secret love  
Then let them fall as drops of rain on her
Allow them to permeate
her heart so that she might recognise my love...

Message
Staring at loch an Duin's dark rippled waters
The water lapping against rocks older than time itself
Waters eroding steadfast granite
As separated from you the hole within me grows daily
Heartbeats keeping rhythm with the waters...
Repeating her name,
glistening, shimmering on reeds tears on eyelashes mourning her absence.
And the clouds scurry by.....
carry my words of desire on your zephyr wings  
And gently lay them at her feet.
So she'll know I am with her....

Unrequited
Unrequited,
My love that can't be be told, shared nor returned.
Brought into the open to bloom like a summer flower.
Yet, she knows of my love...
And mocks me by her teasing and leading me on.
For she is married and so am I
She feels safe but I am empty
Alone in a relationship of two...

God, I know what I feel is wrong
But does that preclude me from your intervention?
Ease my torment
And remove this chalice that
Holds the wine called "unrequited".

Every night as I lie in my bed the voice...
It screams your name inside my head
No matter how I try to block you out
You ultimately conquer my tormented spirit

Yet, paradoxically without this voice I am lost,
Hearing it, I am found
For in this brief moment we are together
Until reality kicks in-I'm transported to your room
And there you are....
In bed with him....
And my heart lies broken...
The Lovely One...my unrequited one. Does she know my feelings for her?? I cannot openly declare them...the stakes are to high..

Ann #2
Ann  has ignited a fire in my heart
That previously was a smouldering ember, barely alight
She has sparked a fire that consumes,flares and roars when ever I say her name or think of her

Her laughter fans the blaze
A smile that chars my soul
Fingertips leave stigmata upon my skin and kisses scald my lovelorn heart.
This fire is out of control, love it’s fuel
And my passion it’s heat.

Unrequited....
I took the chance....
You were there... standing, smiling
Inviting....
My lips sought yours....
And you gave me your cheek.
First your left, then for good measure your right....
And I kissed them tenderly.

Then I turned
Ashamed
Broken
Still wanting,
My love still utterly unrequited.


Even blind Bartimaeus
Pleading for sight
Could recognise my longing for you
His pleas were heard and he saw his Lord
I stood before you mute, unable to
Beg for your heart your touch your succulent lips.

And now I regret.
Fearfully, regret
What I may have destroyed.
That I may have mortally wounded
her, drowned her
In the Tsunami of my desire.

Unrequited

Un: inappropriate
Requited : unrecognised

The love has fallen like the sword of Damocles and spilt my heart in two.

Love Disregarded
Ignored
Trivialised
Wasted
My lonesome heart collapses whenever we meet. Yearning for her.

My love is running out
And I've still not told you
Just what shape you've carved in my heart.
You've scorched your image, your name on each tiny blood vessel  within me.
I'm blistered & scared by this love which daily is destroying me
Unrequited, unreturned, unfulfilled...
But consistent....
Like the virus you consume me,
Invisible gnawing desire saps morale, my focus on anything not allied to you.
I'm scuttled, sinking into the depths of uncharted self destruction.
And...I love you...

Dedicated to the lady who brings light wherever she goes

False perceptions??
False perceptions??

Olfactory:  Your scent on my pillow
Auditory : Your whispers gentle in my ear
Tactile: Your lips so soft against mine
Visual: Your reflection next to mine
In my hallucinations, you are mine
I daydream of wooing her, hearing her say that she loves me, holding her, our fingers intertwined, shared passion.

Silent Magic
What is this sorcery that this woman has meted out to me?
Hypnotised, weakened, I somehow stumble through my day.
Shadows of people, echos of conversations pass through me and all I feel, and reflect upon is her.

I assail her with a thousand repentances “release me from the ******* of simply loving you”
But no, mutely, she pierces my heart with her maleficium, enslaving me in rapturous yet desolate unrequited love for her.
Ann’s enchantment weaved it’s spell upon me this evening when she visited & chatted to me.

Unspoken....yet
I hear your spirit so clearly my love
It bawls at my heart and my soul  
Telling me that you are the one for me
You take  hold of me with talons of passion that have ensnared every ounce of my flesh and spirit .
Please take me my sweet
Devour me, all of me, gaze at this beating heart I hold precious for you.

Life without you is death
Death within you is eternal life
I just desire to exist in the invisible, unspoken love that I have for you.
I wrote this after a brief conversation with Ann. My heart & spirit were aflame with emotion for her. But she doesn’t hear,,,

Ann’s Christmas gift...
Its the way she looks into my eyes....
Standing there she talks to the three of us staring into my eyes...
Through me, into my soul,
Radiation, that burns the chambers of my aching heart...
Burning away any doubts I had of her feelings & sending me once again tumbling into an oblivion of passion.
And then she’s gone!
Her trap has sprung!
Once more she has me trapped in her web of longing...
Woven and
Hooked on loves longing.

— The End —
