Heat
PS Rowland Jan 2014

The caress of your words against my skin.

The feel of your love as it deepens within.

The passion in your eyes as they bore through my soul.

Our inner connection is what makes me feel whole.

Your wanton desire lay bare before me.

My moans in your ear are my heartfelt plea.

The need for more as our bodies entwine.

Blending into one,  I'm yours and you're mine.

Soulmate
PS Rowland Jun 2013

When he loves you,
there is no doubt,
in your mind,
in your body,
in your soul.
All that was cloudy,
is now clear.
Any remnants of distress,
have been kissed
away.
Intensity builds daily,
to a level far greater,
than you’ve ever imagined.
Soon to be,
a lifetime of bliss.

Two wheels of love
spinning in perfect time
connect my heart to yours

Beauty in the wind
sun upon our face
blends our spirits together

Taming the beast
the power we straddle
melts us into one

The sensual gaze
which glints in your eyes
powers me through

You are my breath
you are my world
you are me

Beginning to End
PS Rowland Jan 2014

The beginning of the end,
settles deep within her heart.
The love she felt back then,
turned to jealousy that smarts.

A beautiful journey it was,
full of passion, love and desire.
Yet soon his love was controlling,
and he viewed her as a liar.

She tried to show her love,
prove he was her whole star.
It appeased him for a moment,
but left her with a scar.

Markings on her heart,
grew deeper over time.
Each beating left her fragile,
with a higher rock to climb.

Piece by piece he chiseled,
chipping away at her soul.
Soon he had what he wanted,
a cracked and empty bowl.

padded by cotton
blocking out the sound
ears ringing aloud
as technology abounds
crush my hands
against the noise
my cries abound
i break the toys
advancements in life
we esteem and boast
damage we hail
who has the most
self destruction
gaining more power
gathering toxins
forgetting the flowers
smother creation
stomp downward spin
improvement enhancement
just pack it all in
lost is the flavor
of simple hard work
sitting in the corner
where stupidity lurks
sad state of affairs
the direction we head
look at our children
well enough has been said

Tonight I rock myself to sleep.
The pain I feel I will not keep.
My heart will close so it won’t break.
My tears will flow for my own sake.
The strong are weak,
and the weak are strong.
For this I’ve known, all along.
Which one I am I do not know,
for one will stay, and one will go.
In search of peace, and
calmness of mind,
I peer inside for the answer to find.
In search for what the truth shall be,
for you are you, and I am me

Crush
PS Rowland Feb 2013

Spines of sundry colors
tattooed with precious words
line the perfect bedding
gathering by herds

Relish the kaleidoscope
gaze upon your treasure
touching each leather column
a predilection of pleasure

Beautiful they are
filled with such narration
captivating tales
giving me salvation

Lives cast upon the pages
secrets to be told
pain, sorrow, and laughter
for all those living bold

Life without these pearls
despairing it would be
barren of creativity
in doldrums would be me

Like velvet to my fingers
I caress each creamy leaf
flipping through the chronicles
that's cast upon the sheaf

All consuming it becomes
as hours slip away
this is where I want to be
and how I spend my day

The pain is crippling within.
Lord help me, and save me again.
I’m shattered and lost in my soul.
For only one can make me whole.
He’s now gone away from my world.
I lay here in ache, and all curled.
The life within me was you.
Only “US” of our tenderness knew.
Together we stood strong in love.
Together like two turtle doves.
Now broken and falling apart.
No longer one, but two broken hearts.

Tender is the heart.
Breakable is the soul.
I give to you my trust,
and you break it like a bowl.

Picking up the pieces.
Wishing I would mend.
You try to say the words,
but I fear I see a trend.

My spirit is downcast,
as low as it can go.
I cannot stay the course,
if my lover is the foe.

How to trust again,
remove the pictures from my mind.
I long for what was,
when my minds eye was blind.

Wandering life's path,
windy as it is.
Twirling through the journey before us,
in hopes of passing the quiz.

Hearts and mind collide,
speaking foreign talk.
They rarely understand each other
the words don’t match the  walk.

Decisions become harder,
then what to wear to school.
Many of our choices,
leave us looking like a fool.

On this road of life,
a fork is now in front.
Where to go from here,
is the answer you must hunt.

Survival
PS Rowland Aug 2013

What is needed to survive
within oneself,
within one’s body,
within one’s soul?
Our physical needs are
minuscule compared to
feeding of the spirit;
the true life force of what makes one whole.
Material possessions initiates
shallowness, while losing
meaning from one empty
conversation to the next.
A lifetime of hollowness
will render one desolate, lonely,
hungering to be satiated,
and understood.
Someone to slip inside,
take note of what is real,
who you are, and what
you need to survive.
One who gets you from
the start, helps you be
yourself, and loves every
inch of you as you grow.
Nourishing all aspects
of your inner being.
Humor,
meaningful conversation,
craziness,
nurturing your talents,
and deep love.
Making you whole again,
leaving nothing untouched.

Be still and quiet
do not glance to the left or right

Focus on the center
blocking out distractions

Peer deep inside, and see
what embodies you

Do you like what you see?
are you happy with me?

Choices good or bad
have molded you in mind

Paths of least resistance
have degraded your integrity

A moment of pleasure
can leave you feeling hollow

Disappointment seeps in
when you realize you’re imperfect

Refocus yourself for
internal healing

Be still and quiet
do not glance to the left or right

Revolution
PS Rowland Nov 2013

The pain and the struggle,
the battle between light and dark,
past and future,
robs you from enjoying the present.
Reflecting on what was,
dreaming about what could be,
leaves nothing for today, but tears.
In want of what is not yours,
shaking the foundation of what is.
Grasping at bubbles, and rainbows
you’ve exaggerated in your mind.
A merry-go-round of emotions,
too difficult to pass through.
Numbness and anxiety
control your body and soul simultaneously.
A vicious cycle,
you’re unable to fracture.
The mind is strong,
the heart is weak,
and yet it continues to prevail,
no matter the consequence.

Reflection
PS Rowland Aug 2013

The wonder I do see,
as I glance upon the sea,
the reflection telling stories,
as it does look back at me.

My image it has captured,
and tales it’s tossed about.
I want to read the story,
to dispel this aching doubt.

Is it full of love, and beauty,
or tainted with selfishness?
Is it someone you’d be proud of,
or cause your heart distress?

History has been written,
the past is cast in stone,
the story’s already been published,
Is it something you do own?

Future chapters await,
it’s your chance to make anew.
Any flaws that pained your eye,
rewrite to be brand new.

Love Is ~
PS Rowland Mar 2014

Love is ~
His scent when he walks through the door.

Love is  ~
The sexy crooked smile he sends my way the moment he catches sight of me.

Love is  ~
The warmth, and depth of passion in his eyes as he bores through my soul.

Love is  ~
The sound of his voice when he whispers "God I love you."

Love is    ~
The shivers that rush through my body at the mere brush of his hand against mine.

Love is  ~
The pure intensity when he hugs me so long and hard that my breath comes from his lungs.

Love is  ~
The fever that breaks out the moment his lips touch mine, a sickness I never want cured of.

Love is ~
The time he spends singing lyrics to me from love songs because they are "us"

Love is  ~
The silent moments that pass as we trace each line on each others faces, lost in the passion of what we see.

Love is  ~
Hours of talking and laughing over nothing, everything, and anything in-between.

Love is ~
The secrets, and intimate moments behind closed doors.

Love is  ~
A once in a lifetime love affair with your soulmate.

Love is  ~

Cracks of altered lengths
..run the weathered face
Depth of feeling modified
..yet common in every race

Hunger, fear, and poverty
..chiseled this masterpiece
Eyes bulging with stories
..which caused each beautiful crease.

Many pass him by
..never giving him much thought
My heart is drawn to his
..so I put money in his pot

Blessed I am with a smile
..he hands me his woven wares
Beautiful turtle doves
..that always come in pairs

Crafting for his living
..yet no on seems to care
They walk by with disgust
..only giving him cold stares

A beggar he is not
..he sells just like the stores
What others cannot realize
..his shops just out of doors

Daily we exchange
..we sit upon his stoop
Stores of life, and wisdom
..I glean over a bowl of soup

Fast friends we became
..in our mutual admiration
An educated man he is
..full of inspiration

Sad, and tragic it is
..other don't peer below
Missing the real beauty
..that sets the soul aglow

Our time soon came to and end
..I've memorized each crease
Richer I am for the experience
..from my merchant on the street

The need for help,
yet no one sees.
Shuffled about,
like honey bees.

Searching for love,
in a loveless home.
Wishing for hugs,
yet only hear moans.

Children need love
continuously.
One hundred percent,
and always free.

Don’t leave them out
to fight for themselves.
You’ve brought them here,
not dropped by elves.

The cries for help,
should not be ignored.
Get out of yourself,
and draw your sword.

Your mission is,
to protect and love.
Not put your needs
ahead, or above.

Don’t let them down,
they may not get up.
Get off your butt,
and act like a grown-up.

Double sided love is the thrill he instills in my soul.
Double sided love is the stab in my chest when I've disappointed him.
Double sided love is the yearning I feel in my gut when he looks at me.
Double sided love is the hurt deep in my bones when he misunderstands my words.
Double sided love is the warmth of his body against mine making us one.
Double sided love is the sadness I have in my heart because I am confused.
Double sided love is the smile he gives me that shines through my eyes.
Double sided love is the hate I feel for myself when I betray him.
Double sided love is the breath that is sucked from my lungs as passion soars through my body at the mere hint of his cologne.
Double sided love is the realization that he is mine, and yet he is not.
Double sided love is the flutters inside my being when I feel his proximity.
Double sided love is the emptiness when he leaves.
Double sided love is the realization that ours is the love of a lifetime.
Double sided love is our near death, because of our love.

That most mankind will fear
Reflecting on their lives,

Mistakes are often made.
The pain at times will fade.
Reality caves in,
As we ponder all our sins.
We beg on bended knee,
And God we hope will see.
We did the best we could,
Not always what we should.
