A Passing Cloud, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

A Passing CloudA Passing Cloud, Arthur Hughes (c.1908)

A Passing Cloud

The silent summer breeze brought you to me
As if an answer to a private plea
So soft and gentle was our first embrace
Was no resistance as you took my heart
Dreaming my happiness would never part

A gray day came yet I asked that you stay
Why the need you must leave you did convey
Almost anger with your sound of thunder
At once your countless tears came raining down
And as quickly you left without a sound

Every day now I search the big blue sky
But it is I who every night do cry
Again pleading for your rapid return
For my longing life is now so hollow
And my tender heart is filled with sorrow

 

 

 

Evening Melancholy, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Evening MelancholyEvening Melancholy, Edvard Munch (1896)

Evening Melancholy

You can feel what’s in my heart when we kiss
You know I watch ’til you blend with the night
You can tell that it is you that I’ll miss
But can you feel my ache when out of sight

It’s my demand to have you night and day
Absurd as it is, it’s the way I feel
For it is not true that you are my prey
But, yes it’s true your heart I wish to steal

So hungry, you have brought me to my knees
A famished want to wake and see you near
To have you in my sight I’ve made my pleas
But it’s mere moments that you can be here

I have been called insane. Yes, it is true.
But the reason why is because of you

Head by Head

His head lays still on her thighs
Looking up towards the sky
Gazing into her bright eyes
She touches his hair with even pace
Then calmly with finger traces his face
Rich red blood through his veins starts to race
Her slender velvet hand stirs his desire
Such a feeling of which he’d never tire
For her every stroke increases his fire
Quickly she descends with her open lips
Freezing his head within her mighty grips
Drinking hungrily his love in deep sips
Her kisses he did happily return
It is for her love he’ll forever yearn
This roaring fire for her will always burn
The pair standing, thinking head to head
Of a separation they would dread
“I love you,” each to the other said

Man and Woman, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Man and WomanMan and Woman, by Edvard Munch (1905)

Man and Woman

About to take a voyage in my mind
You are the only one to come along
To see every moment I think of you
From rising until the end of my day
The great joy I get gazing at your face
The music coming from your tender voice
The downy softness of your loving kiss
The calm you bring with you tender embrace

But my mind is busiest when I dream
You’re there to taunt me with your vivid love
Chained to my bed unable to escape
Flailing ever so wildly from your touch
A hand so hot it sets my flesh on fire
Your kiss evokes within lawless desire
Building pressure I can no longer hold
I am a live volcano. I explode

Silence, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

SilenceSilence, John Atkinson Grimshaw (n.d)

Silence

The shielded moon struggles to pass
As is my deep love reaching out
To you who stay behind the fence
Not letting me beyond the gate

Searching for ways to pick the lock
To get inside your wanting heart
For there is something in your eyes
That is not part of your disguise

There is calmness in our caress
Yet heavy pounding in your chest
It’s I who’s first to pull away
But sensing you wish to linger

Dare you say directly to me
‘You shall not love me anymore’
A request I’ll surely ignore
Will love even in your silence
