Sex? Did someone say sex? Here at the Fireside????

OK, just for my buddy Dale...


Know what Sex on the rocks is?..................Damned uncomfortable!
Know what a Cooley is? ..........a quickie in the snow.
And a boobi ? .....That's a guy that sticks his head into a bee hive and yells... Boo Bee!
(and you thought it was gonna be dirty!)
Then I read this a quote from Dale .....
<div class="quote">Just fabulous! Love the rhythm, the flow, and the build up! And he said it was not him that had sex on his mind...hmm...

But I agree... I think sex is fabulous too. The rhythm, the flow and the build up from fore play.
Hey, if I can't write those beautiful poetic words as some of you do, does not mean I can't enjoy and come here to at least try to be funny

Hmmm? Sex at the Fireside here a the pond... Things that make you go hmmmm.
By theway, Have any of you ladies tried the new doggie bra? Yep, it makes pointers out of setters!
Or maybe the new rawhide bra....Heads em up and moves em out!

Back to your normally scheduled program. Just had to stop by and say hi to my buddie Dale.

Gonna miss ranting to no one
Yet everyone all at once
Gonna miss leaving my little bullshit sob stories
That I don' t even believe
On this stupid page
For all to read
Because I love to write lies
I do it all the time
Can't hardly say them out loud
My eyes tell all...
But, on paper it's easy
No one to really call
Me out on my childish ways
Make me accept responsibility
Open the rusty cage
And bring the truth out of me

And even when it is the truth
I disguise it with simple undertones
Even when I'm dead in love
You'll only know of the crocodile bones
I choose to oil and sand
Choose to make me make a stand?

This poem ****ing sucks...
Can't write for shit these days
Keep thinking about some brown eyed man
What was it the song did say?

Been a whole lotta good women
Shed a tear
Over a brown-eyed handsome man

Who isn't even my type
If there ever were such a thing
Because seems like ten seconds into it
Someone's wanting to put a ring
On my damn finger
For all to see
So they can claim
To have control over me
But it drives me away
Makes me want to play
With that sexy bad man
He's not too far down the road
Wanna crawl in bed with him
And let him shoot a big ole... well you know

Dammit Sarah Jane
You never did listen
Just go after what you like
Go after what you're missing

But every time I like someone
They are usually totally wrong
Just the fact that I care at all
Tells me something must be going on

But who am i kidding
If I had him
I wouldn't want him
Because all this love shit
is just me fronting
Too scared to find it
That close to home
Would rather be reckless
And have an excuse to roam

Tearing down the highway
In the middle of the night
Trying not to smoke any cigs
My buddy Mary Jane helps to ease the fight

And I get there
And he's perfect
And it's stupid
But damn it's worth it

But never again
will I go down that lane
Just to give some ***hole
A shot at my flame
For it's too strong of a fire
To be messed with and tossed around
Too strong of a love
To be thrown on the ground...

Wouldn't have it any other way
Except complicated, hard, and mean
Wouldn't stand to see the day
When he's actually in love with me

'Cuz then it will be old
My love that can't be sold
And I'll lose this perfect fantasy
I create in my mind of him and me...

Knowing someone
makes me hate them
Mysteries turn me on
Please don't ever solve this riddle
I like the way we get it on...

free flow poetry
written with honesty
this one hides nothing
shows you are trusting
us with your truth
and we honour you
in all that you do
in all that you write
and all that's unspoken too
as happens here with everyone
who comes to sit and warm their bum :)

Hey Pal. I'm fine..I mean really fine. I have only been back in the pond for a short while and if things go right, may be back out of here sooner then I thought. Yep, I met a fantastic woman that just may be the one.
Damn, I almost forgot what that chemistry thing is. But one meeting and WOW! No , not just looks... although she is very pretty, cute, sexy, feminine, shapely, and beautiful; But when I looked into her eyes and saw her soul, that's when the WOW effect took over. Her wants, needs, desires and expectations match mine to a tee.
Makes getting over the heartache and broken hearted feeling of the last four years, so much easier to deal with. But I can't go through that any more. This old body and heart can't take it, so I am moving slowly...or at least trying to!
Hard to do since I know me... and know I hate being single and hate living alone.

so many paths
so few roads
fewer road signs?



concomitant paths
meander through thorn thickets-
fey and real we pass (never forget the fey)


bow with my willow
over streams deepest pools-
bentwood rocker weeps

ideal commitment?
passions to share and grow with
don't chop my branches

I've tried to write
and find my plight
a blank canvas.

I've tried to think
with mental ink,
a blank canvas.

If I try to rhyme
I'm just a mime
on a blank canvas.

you touched my heart
and a work of art
on a living canvas.

goodnight dear friends. I'm just drawing blanks here!

Mysterious Ways

The tear was on the corner
it was lifted up enough to pull
so I tugged at it in my desire
to reveal the golden rule
As it layered back I saw
a multitude of blessings...
and multi races in a school
awaiting their next lesson
Standing stately to the class,
the teacher never spoke a word
but the light of the Opaline mass,
related the message they all heard
A song rung out when they smiled
and their feelings, I felt too
and as I pulled the whole cover back
I fell into a pool ~
I floated in colors; of vibrating air
to which we all breathed in at once
leaving us exposed, washing us aware
The emanation from our breath
darted and heated our very souls
like a solar flair, it burned in ways
that scars and changes and scolds
Then the teacher appeared in a sphere
and a lunar like halo hovered his head
and in a voice that was a song
we drank what the teacher said,
What you feel came from you
and every deed you'll do
Treat unto man all kindly ways,
This is the Golden Rule

Then in a wave, the colors shattered
and a new air filled my lungs
and all that was, seemed a dream
except the sky above...
There was a pulse in the heavens
that rained my soul in Love
and suddenly I felt more alive
than I ever thought I was
I walked away that very day,
from that strange embodied sleep
seeing the world with my New light
the way we are all meant to see

so beautifully written
and so full of wisdom
your words touch my soul
as tears start to unfold
the snake round my heart
keeping me from falling apart
and holding it all in
is slowly unwrapping
its tail like a dragon
protecting me from anybody
who might wish to harm me
and of course with such force
this coil of protection
is also my guardian
teaching me the lesson
of loving the dragon

BKS, WeareI...two beautiful writes! Thank you both...what a way to start the day!

I wait!
as if forever falls on Sunday,
time passes into time,
like a river of love,
flowing endlessly....

and yet I wait!
in a sightless world
that has lost it's vision,
like a black moon rising
in charcoal skies...

unseen...

I wait!

BKS, WA1 and manny (indeed everyone here) you are all such gentle, sensitive poets. You draw me her to sit at the fireside in such splendid company, thank you.

The Never-Never

Speak to me with sounds
that are not words, somehow
I will understand you...

When the world contains
nothing but the two of us,
I glimpse the child in you;
grinning a sinless smile,
your cliff-hanging lips
aligns my heart.

My playmate, shall we make
a playdate with destiny?
I'll give my pinkie-promise,
to always be your friend.

We'll make a place where
love has wings and can fly.
Where beginnings
don't have to end,
in the Never-Never....

Two children, eyes locked
in a trusting dream, knowing
kindness is a circular thing.

Such simple faith,
sealed by waifs who bless
their wildest dreams into being.

I just wanted to share these lyrics that I have always Loved! Some of you may have heard this song by Rush...
Hope you enjoy!


The Trees

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

PM...thank you, such a lovely write.

BKS, another wonderful piece for the fireside...thank you both for your artistry! I heard that song on UTube BKS...very nice indeed, and truthful.

lyrics from a song I wrote many years ago. It has two other verses, but they were washed away and couldn't make them out.

The battle rages,
deep inside,
you run for cover,
but there's no place left to hide.

Thoughts are flying,
through the mind,
you try escaping,
but you're only left behind.

Tears and anger,
fill your heart,
when all you asked
was just to be a part.

Bringing this one home from Sarah's thread

Black death
in a silver spoon,
chariot to the Gods
will make you swoon,


On and on
your story is told,
the devils juice
has made you bold.

You might run,
but you can't hide,
from the demon
that lives inside.

You twist and scream
in agony's bliss,
when the spoon runs dry
and your hit is a miss!

You beg and you steal
for just one more high,
this time, the last time
to live or to die!

Vacation from what?
Time: man made
Money: same thing...

So what is real?
Do I really need sleep?
Can I continue to drink coffee?
Will my heart cease to beat?

If I go one more day
On four hours or less
If I just make my way
Will I still do my best?

Why, hell no
But this is the reality you seek...
Now I guess I better go to bed
Gotta get me a little sleep.

Seaz, Sarah, Trulio and Sunshine...thanks to each of you for your writes. Loved them all. The fireside has never been better!

What do I bring
to a midnight fling
that hasn't been brought before?

What do I say
in a midnight way
when she's standing in the door.?

Shall I proceed
to her midnight need
in a secret rendezvous?

and

what do I say
as I walk away
that hasn't been said before!

The coffee made me do it...I swear!

Night again blurs into day
did I sleep or wake along the way
when living feels as but a dream
is anything ever as it seems

shall I kiss the tear from your face
or try not to be why its in place
shall I leave
quietly close the door
or stay and hold you evermore

shall I breathe along your neck so fine
lick that lovely sinewed line
or pull the blanket to your chin
to keep you ever cosy in

you have known horror before this day
yet still you are a joy in play
that kind of strength
that gritted ore
makes me want to stroke your jaw

but sleep now
rest somehow
your figure alluded to in the sheet
puts leaden weights into my feet
I wish that it were not so
but I know its time for me to go

I finally found the perfect girl
I could n't ask for more
She deaf ,dumb and over sexed
And she owns a liquor store.

I know ,it puts a tear in my eye everytime I write this poem.
Thank you for letting me post the classics.
