Never Looking Back

We were sometimes
perpendicular
though the compass was our home
at all angles,
we were uncontained
in a contained world,
transmogrified
our hearts sleeveless
constantly moving
roaming the inner worlds
as much as the outer
never looking back.

So Pretty

So pretty even Manfred hit you up
vanguard of birthdays and anniversaries
blood red feathered flame of life
beautiful to behold your everything
touch me with your slender grace.

That To Love

Ologies and osophies abound
like turgid solipsisms
clouding the mind,
I am this and this is mine,
lines and banners
scowl and grimace,
but there is one thing
above all,
to love others as
you would of yourself
that golden rule
a crown of the heart
that ever expands,
as Hubble once showed,
or that the One is
ever becoming,
a similar plane
underpinned by
an unconditional
outward gifting
of love,
of self
the beauty of when
theory becomes practice.

Complicated – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Complicated

It’s complicated
but then it always is,
if maybe could be yes
and more certain
I might take that risk,
why spoil the moment with
a probable no?
Besides,
she has no clue
and if I even hint
the jig might well be up.

Sheer Delight

To hold you is sheer delight,
voluptuous
taught
toned body
smooth skin
to taste you is ecstasy,
your juice runs down my chin
sweet
luscious peach.

Carried – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Nimble – RDP Monday

Carried

The dance began so long ago
it was yesterday as tomorrow,
effortless and light
carrying no weight,
they took their parts
and shared the load,
he was fleet of foot
and she was nimble,
but she carried the greater part
she carried the whole
the family sum
and he was all the lighter
with gratitude.

Tonight – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Yearning – Word of the Daypexels-photo-1843405.jpeg

Tonight

The hiss of
fifteen denier crossing
and that off the shoulder allure
hem an invitation,
ripe ruby red lips engorged
kisses only our eyes could feel
so lost were we in each other,
alas, alone again,
and O how I yearn for you tonight.

Memory

Sometimes I look for you
but mostly you come to mind,
a memory curled in my heart,
a felt sense of presence
often my own face as
I awaken in the morning mirror,
moments of humour,
anger and sorrow,
Confused
holding my four year old hand.

Possible – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Foray – RDP Monday

Possible

Now
after so long
it seemed possible
and in proximity
as we were
alone
close
my hand reached out for yours
a risk to break the impasse
of tenterhooks and butterflies,
awaiting reception
or, God forbid
a retraction, no
and as I turned
you leaned in,
and our hearts
were in our eyes.

To Bring Her Closer

Her face shone
lighting the whole
and she beamed knowing
that I adored her and
I resolved to
spend some time
weaving my heart-felt
love to bring her closer.
