Open Window, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Open WindowGirl reading a Letter at an Open Window, Johannes Vermeer, (c 1657)

Open Window

As thy shall read my words of love to thee
Stand before the open window so that
The sun across thy beauty I may see
Rather than memory pain may distract.

Desire to be so close, can hear thee breathe,
Hand upon thy breast, I can feel thy heart.
Not within touch of thee soon, I will seethe.
See you not in thy window, where thou art?

Having had thy secured forbidden fruit,
Shames me not, but desires more of thee.
Forever to make music with thy lute,
As together this prison we will flee.

Take what thou may require, but do thee haste,
For our departure known, we will be chased.

Daphnis and Chloe

Dropped in a distant place, a twist of fate,
Each child not knowing one from the other.
In the years an affection did create,
Soon desire each other for a lover.

Bright sun rays pressed against their naked skin,
Unversed in their current heated moment.
Swelling inside they held immense desire,
Yet to meet dares to their love involvement.

Lightening split the darkened autumn sky,
With hurry a torrent of arrows fell.
Would all the gods this tender love deny.
Or they a different ending foretell?

Love as theirs is not easy to destroy,
Before long they were joined in loving joy.

An Offering

Thou beauty be greater than can be said.
Thou smile brilliant as the pearls in the sea.
Thou hair more vivid than sunset of red.
Thou eyes as diamonds shine ever brightly.

My heart beats eager for joyous moments,
Of thy magical touch, feeling warmness,
So close to taste sweetness of thy fragrance,
Closer yet to feel thy downy softness.

It has now become such a heavy chore,
To restrain the feeling holding inside,
Being so close to the one I adore.
Soon be difficult my feelings to hide.

Symbol of Cupid I present to thee
Desire his arrow ‘come reality

Lovers’ Night, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Lovers' Night

Lovers’ Night

Sun soon to be below the horizon
Our silhouettes blending into darkness
Our night together will have just begun
Our love of each other time to express

We’ll quell the night’s chilling breeze with our fire
There will be no need for wood nor matches
As heat shall come from internal desire
And closeness of our constant embraces

Come walk with me to our hidden retreat
Hand in hand we will glide over the sand
Stopping occasionally lips to meet
Together our loving hearts will expand

The deep hunger we feel our love to taste
Moments together cannot be replaced

 

There’s a Fire that Burns Steadily Within, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

There's a Fire that Burns Steadily Within

There’s a Fire that Burns Steadily Within

There’s a fire that burns steadily within
Awaiting the warm softness of your touch
Each day with you a new life we begin
Your morning kiss creates a happy spin
And the sweetness it provides is nonesuch
There’s a fire that burns steadily within
Which allows me to wear a ceaseless grin
An overt sign, I love you very much
Each day with you a new life we begin
Eager to hug you again and again
The peaceful calm I feel when in your clutch
There’s a fire that burns steadily within
Its public display there is no chagrin
Able to admit that you are my crutch
Each day with you a new life we begin
You at my side there’ll always be a win
There cannot be a greater love as such
There’s a fire that burns steadily within
Each day with you a new life we begin

Sea Escape, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Sea Escape

Sea Escape

Frozen as a statute before the sea
No words pass your lips with eyes glazed over
Surely it is another place you were
Wishing again to fly there soon to be
For here appears you pay a penalty
Fettered to be just another ambler
Rather choosing to be something grander
It is your desire to be free of me?

Nay, see majestic seagulls in the air
Like them we can now escape to freedom
Just you and I as a happy twosome
It is with you my life I wish to share
Loss of you I am not willing to bear
Minus your love what would my life become?

 

Perfumed Shadow, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Perfumed ShadowShadow Portrait

Perfumed Shadow

Is now an early cool Sunday morning
Few lonely shadows are longer than life
As the early sunrise is just spawning
My aching demented mind’s thoughts are rife
Many of them I have been avoiding

The memories with her causing anger
But not of her, rather a careless me
My inactions she is now a stranger
Her needs I failed miserably to see
Now all I do is ponder loss of her

Each step I take adds to the misery
Head so heavy can’t see the horizon
A prisoner whose never to be free
Unable to take serious action
Each shadow passing by I think it she

The soft clicking sound of a woman’s heel
Quickly her slender shadow passes by
A curious change to the way I feel
Suddenly froze in place starting to cry
Scent of the shadow’s perfume was real
