Razzle Love| A Poem|

He wore dreadlocks

She liked the way his hair looked

Hers was stringy in comparison; slippery soft

And fine

When he smiled his chiseled out features appeared

He was intelligent, artistic, relaxed

She was intelligent, artistic, calm

They had so much more in common than that

They both wrote poetry and loved music

Their favorite guilty pleasure

Razzles – first a candy, then a gum

my island| my love|

Calm warm rainbow-blue colored water

I want to indulge myself in all YOUR splendor
I admire your strength
As I stand alone along the shore
Like a lover
Longing for unrequited love
Seriously contemplating
Am I really an island unto myself
Squishy sand between my wriggling toes
I dig my heels and feel myself sink in
I feel your release
as you pull away from me
I wonder are you really teasing me
My knees begin to feel a little weak
I can feel the sun’s power beat down upon me
Needing you more now I feel myself drawn in
You and I are now one
How long will this last — does it ever really matter
Watching your waves come towards me
I ride you whenever I can
N
I
R
V
A
N
A
You are my Island of pleasure
My focus now is completely on YOU
I’m not sure if anyone else is around me
I can hear nothing but you
I stand there enthusiastically drinking you all in
I feel myself surrendering to your power
You feel so good
Against me
Wanting to take it further
Shall I swim deep into your cool water
I hold myself back
Knowing I might drown
Like a siren you call out to me
As I return and wait patiently on the beach
Still remembering how good you felt
Splashing and thrusting emphatically on my hot naked skin
Your sun now penetrates me so deeply
The warm breeze euphoria against my skin
Crashing waves along the shoreline
Taunting me as you try to lure me back in
Seagulls cry out to me
Asking “What are you waiting for?”
Wearing nothing but slathered  on sunscreen
As I lay atop my beach towel
I close my eyes and celebrate my own power
Like you, my strength surpasses me
You awake such passion within me
You are my Island, my Love

best love poems|

best love poems|

love is stronger than midas
love is brighter than the moon
love is warmer than sunshine
love sparkles like countless stars
love is as brilliant as a hot summer’s night sky
love fills us with hope and wonder
love makes us risk it all while standing tall
look for it until you find it
love is a gift from me to you
love is the greatest miracle of all
love is willing to listen
love knows when to concede
love is found in a returned smile
love is doing it without expectation
giving to simply give not giving to receive
love is  found in the simplest of gestures
love is found in a smile or seen in someone’s eyes
love is found in the beauty that surrounds you
love is glistening heat and passion
love is finding the sweet spot of surrender
sometimes seen as wishful lust
but when it’s love it’s so much more
love is heard in children’s laughter
love is in the lion’s protective roar
love is in the blooming flower
love is in the mother’s willing sacrifices
love is all this and so much more
Love is standing in soildarity
and catching each other as we fall
love is the greatest miracle of all
love is how we all got here
love is why we all stay

moving on|

The world is yours
The time is now

Your joy is mine
Your pain is mine

“You don’t understand!”
But I think I really do

We are so different
We are so much the same

There is so much I”ve already told you
There is so much I still want to share

I know you will be okay
We never feel ready to go

Raising you has been the greatest honor
I have ever known

You and I will always be close
No matter where we are living

Do you know how proud I am of you?
I wish I could send with you only life’s best

The world is yours
The time is now

best love poems| Cindi Silva Poetry|

Love

Is the most

Special thing

And it’s of course

Not even a thing

But a feeling

You have

That swells

Like a wave

And crests

often

Dissipates

Sometimes

When we’re

Really lucky

Love keeps

Coming at us

Like waves

Rolling out to the sea

For a moment or two

And then returning

To us while we

Patiently wait at the shore

at the movies| Cindi Silva Poetry|

At The Movies

Bill Murray’s Gonna be FDR

I thought about how much

You would want to

See that movie with me

I could see your enthusiasm

In your smile as we talked about it

Across your kitchen table

I could hear us making arrangements

Over the phone

To meet at the earliest show

On the first Friday morning

It is released

Only if I have the day off

And I don’t have anything else

I have to do

There’s nothing I’d rather do

I told you

I could even imagine driving

There and meeting you outside

While you were waiting in your car

Knitting or reading a magazine

Your huge smile as you realized I had

Just parked my car next to yours

Even could imagine sitting inside the theater

Next to you and holding your hand

Periodically, you smiling over at me

I would then kiss your cheek

and smell your perfume

I can feel you squeeze my hand

gently since your hands hurt

It’s all so vivid Mom

Yet it won’t ever happen

I miss you, Mom
