Oh, my sweet darling
Let me hold you
Through the dark hours
For something is released in me
A physical sensation
An envelope of caring
Twinning us here
For all time
I am mute
With longing
You consume me entirely
Stamped upon the ether
Our sounds, scents, aching
There is no world beyond
What we have engineered

I kiss you
And would die
To never lose this feeling.

Only For Him

He could not know
Or maybe realise his role
In the quickening of my mind
The returning to life
Of my body

That subtle stirring
That almost forgotten
Blossoming and unwrapping
The unfolding of sweet petals
Wanting only him….

For I have dreamt of him
In the dark nights
And in my red dawns
Of awakening
My eagle soars to be with him
A blissful feathered dawn

I lie with him in the night breeze
And our sighs are taken up into the endless skies
Where they mix with divine dew

Raining down on us in blessings
Wetting us in our union

A heavenly approval
Of why
I love

Date with Destiny

date with destinyExquisite joy, exquisite pain
Are no strangers to me
For years ago I slipped my moorings
Drifting out to sea
That ocean of the hearts delight
Denied me for so long
Where waves of passion swell the night
As mermaids sing their song
The story of a love gone cold
And weep while singing,
So sad the song

They sing of how I risked it all
To set my captive free
A melancholy figure
Revealed in a dream to me
She stood alone in darkest gloom
Before a window barred
All dressed in black,
I viewed her back
And knowledge came to me

She was my ‘self’
My strong desires
I’d locked up on the day
I gave myself in marriage
My freedom locked away
In a dark and lonely dungeon
Far from the light of day

So I broke free
And chanced my fate
Out on life’s oceans deep
Oh! Had I known the hurt and pain
The endless tears I’d weep
I may have stayed confined and lost
Instead of free..
And tempest tossed

But still I sail the stormy seas
My destiny to claim
For faintly on the sweet night air
I hear him call my name
I just keep going forward
I am so glad I am free
For standing on some distant cliff
He scans the seas for me.

Sweet Mystery

Who is this person?
Brings a smile to my lips
And rushes blood into my thighs?

Who is this person?
Who knows me so well?
Yes, my inner being?

Whose words elevate
And excite beyond measure
Whose knowing leaves me naked?

He is all things imagined
All things desired
All things dark and light

He IS all things!

On The Road To Find Out

Hello, Goodbye,
Sorry, I will not give it one more try,
I am on the road to find out,
Our times were real, mystical, and surreal
But I am on the road to find out.

Your love was a blessing, in human dressing
But I am on the road to find out.
Our union Holy, lovemaking solely
My way to find out.

Nature untethered, passion unfettered
I spread myself before you..
Am happy knowing, knowledge growing
On MY road to find out.

You gave me some answers, my thoughts were like dancers
Which skimmed over your body
Encompassing dreams and unwritten schemes
A true road to find out.

I kiss you so deep, entwined as we sleep
My head on your strong chest
I wake and|I leave you, and always will grieve you
On my road to find out.

The Crossing

The CrossingWhisper softly, my beloved
Tender words of sacred love,
I have loved you with a passion
Given all my heart could hold
And I will love you for a lifetime
Though the way is hard and bleak;

Whisper softly, my beloved
As we lie in love’s embrace
Is tonight the very last time?
Can it be your love’s grown cold?
I have sacrificed my humble pride
Look deeply in my eyes and speak

Of the life we planned together,
Of the passion we have shared,
Of the thousand times we kissed,
All the times you said you cared,
Yes my love goes on forever
Even though yours has proven weak                                                                     

Whisper softly, my beloved
Though I do not hear your voice
You have left me all alone again
Maybe you had no choice?
But when all is said and done
And it’s to the light I go
I have loved you with strength of love
That other’s seldom know!

And at time of my transition
And I close my eyes for good
May my heart remain suffused with love
May my thoughts be true and good
And my leaving and my waking,
Will be “one above the rest”
With my hand in yours SO softly
And my head upon your chest.

Wishing in a Dream

Turn around my darling!
Turn around and see me standing there
Take me in your loving arms
Run your fingers through my hair
Take me to our ‘special place’ once more
The one reserved for me and you,
Whisper softly in my ear, the way that lovers do;

Do you have to go SO soon?
Can’t you stay a little while?
I have missed you, oh, So much!
Missed your kisses and your smile;
And your body pressed to mine
And your sweet and tender touch,
Please don’t go. oh no! not yet!

Morning comes, no invitation
Such a sad and aching situation
Let me slip back into dreams, if only for a second
Retrace my steps to when I beckoned
“Turn around my darling”
“Turn around and see me standing here”

Sweet Surrender

Hold me
ever tighter
My arms refuse
to let you go!
I will not
Surrender you again
Like once….
SO long ago

Oh! take my breath
within you
As I take you
In me
So our souls
Will be united
As united
They must be!

I will not
Leave this calling
For once
My soul says NO!
I'll go where I am taken
And I'll take
Where ere I go

I melt
Into your presence
I dissolve
Into your heart
In silence
I surround you
Now let
Our loving start…..

You speak
to me
In moonlight
You join me
In my dreams
You’ve always
Been beside me
You’ve held me
My screams

I’ve called for you
In star-time
I’ve ached for you
At dawn
Now come my love
And take me
Our time

Inner Questioning

How then shall I love you?
Shall I send for winged chariots
To ferry me over the oceans?
Or summon Eros
To bear me up with his dark wings?
For I often wander
In the underworld
And sometimes I fear
This will be my prison
And many times I try
To elevate myself
Onto a higher perspective
And oft times I fall
Back into my silence

How then,
Shall I

Sweet Man

You speak

And my tethered heart
Fights against the bars
of my self imposed prison

You smile

And my world has colour
Past hurts are forgotten
Wounds are healed, miraculously

You write

And my heart is warmed
After many months in icy winter
Too many nights of biting cold

You live

And the knowlege
Gives my heart the wings
To fly to pastures new.

Beyond The Mask

Beyond The MaskDo you see beyond the mask?
Outward expression, resolute
Yes! I know you do!
Your every breath is mine
Your heart beats to my own peculiar rhythm

I push you away and still you stay!
An immovable rock, in the landslide
Of my emotions
Oblivious of all warnings
Unexpected conditions stay indoors!
Your feet transverse the chasm
Between my hurt and my heart

Brave soul! My love is yours forever!
Time, age or distance cannot diminish
The galaxy of stars I see
When I look in your eyes

My words are like jewels
Given on a velvet cloth
Pure, bright, unblemished
I am but one star in the creation
A tiny drop of being
But let that being drop on you
Nourish, water and comfort you
In life's droughts.

For John

Wolf eyes alert, piercing.
Exposing all inconsistencies
You trampled my defences
And soared over my barriers
With nothing more
Than your integrity
And `real' heart beating
In time to my own

Why do I feel such security
Enfolded in your arms?
There have been others before you
Who have held me close
And whispered words of love

But I knew YOU would come!
Why it has taken so long
I do not understand
I only know that in you
I have found my true peace

Boundaries disappear, the circle completed
A spiritual blending of hearts and souls
We share the happy secret
That in each other, we have found
The priceless key to self-expression
And infinite pure love

Pull me closer, closer still!
My spirit surrenders
My body responds
To an ancient impulse
A deep inner knowing...
You are my safe harbour!

I am part of you and you of me
Escape is impossible, or desired!
Pierce me and let us begin again
Our own ecstatic dance;
Let me lie in your arms
And share the warmth of our bodies
And the rhythm of our breaths

While the moon is high in the sky
In the silence of the night
I shall feast on my good fortune
And I shall bless God
For what has been granted to me

For this season.

Our Dream House

house in moonlightYou will paint and I will write
Or I will paint and you will write
Nights together by the fire
Your tender face in my hands
Our eyes expressing
A thousand unspoken words
Of how often we yearned for this
And the times we feared it was not to be
Or walking in the dusk in the garden
Distant calls of wild birds
Scented warm breeze rustling the leaves
Holding my hand in the silence
And mystery of love's bonding
As we gaze on our little house
With the soft glow from the windows
And later as the moon's silver light
Reflects off the slated roof
And the midnight stars are blazing
We lie beneath in each other's arms
Secure and content in our love
Our hearts overflowing
That in this maze we call life

We found each other.

Will You?

Will you accept me as I am?
Devoid of any pretence

Will you accept
My constant need for reassurance?
Will it wear you down?

Will you see beyond it
To the frightened child?
Will you ride

The rollercoaster of emotions with me
And understand my need to be held?
Will you penetrate my inner being?
And unleash the latent power in me
And hold me close when it threatens
To overwhelm us both?

Will you see the good in me?
Beyond the façade of gaiety
The inner longing for the merging of souls
The unspoken rejection of today’s superficiality?

Will you look deep into my eyes and see
The inhabitant and not the house?
And having experienced all these things
And perhaps understood very little!
Will you love me?

© Alison Stormwolf



Peace transcending space and time
Bliss beyond description
Safety and contentment
Encased in your arms
Heavy rain on the window
We share the womb
Our love has fashioned
Content to sleep, content to dream
And never wake

© Alison Stormwolf


Take Comfort

I will nurse you back to health
So sleep, and rest assured
I am in the next room
Alert to your call
Mindful of your needs

Your medicine, the antidote
To a lifetime of struggle
A hot water bottle for your soul
My caring, your salvation
My love, the “Cure All”

Do not fret, be at peace
Sleep the sleep of the beloved
Cocooned in blissful knowledge
Your existence, my reason to live
To make you happy.

© Alison Stormwolf


The Reason

He lives
And while he does
So, also do my hopes
And dreams

He lives
And that knowlege
Plays about my heart
Suffusing it
With noon-day sun

He lives
And that thought
Places a smile
About my lips
And a fire in my eyes

He lives
So this world
Is not the grey
Alien land
It once was

Certainty Versus Doubt

Should I never see you smile again
Or feel your hand in mine,
I have taken of the waters
Of a love that was divine

Should I never hold your body
Or look deeply in your eyes
I know we loved each other
And this world is full of lies.
