Play Like Canines
I can hear the waves aspiring    down at Murrays Bay Onward thus I'm beckoned on this    clear and cheery day Looking at the happy couples    strolling by the tides Dogs and prams accompanying    calm and blissful strides Lovers play like canines in their    timeless courtship game Oh, for us to be together    doing much the same Dusk proceeds impatiently as    everyone departs Leaving me to dream of ways to    share our distant hearts

True Love, Revisited
A true love is one that Deserves no desertion A gift of the highest kind One without any equal A true love is one whose Sustenance requires trust For its greatest depths are made From the tallest leaps of faith A true love is one that Desires no bitterness The preciousness of sharing Is worth every forgiveness A true love is one whose Beauty comes from patience For each moment together Is a step nearer heaven

Summertime Splendour
Outside, the soft sound of cicadas The steady warm flow of sea breezes The promise of a bright sunny day Untarnished by weather vexations Inside, the soft whispers of your joy The steady warm glow of shallow breaths The promise of a long, lasting love Untarnished by weary vexations

Amnesia, by the Piano
Soft notes tease my mind Stirring up stilled memories Like breezes to chimes But such haunting ones; The chills seemed to ring a bell Without its clapper For I cannot tell If those echoes were mine, or Some long-dead person's Seeking redemption For past lives' buried regrets Here resurrected

Dreaming by the Piano
When my memories Are in shades of discord and Constant restlessness Soothing dreams bring me Sounds of virtuosity From your fingertips And I think back on Forgotten times together Always wondering If we could have been Better friends for each other Rather than rivals For now we travel Very separate pathways Undestined to meet But maybe one day Long-desired reunion Will come within reach

Echoes of You
Your breaths, like ascendant fires Lick my ear lobe Dispatching all through my body Butterflies of incandescence Your heart, like a metronome Speeds me forward Entranced by its relentless beat I surrender to your rhythm Your murmurs, like timeless songs Tease my longings Resonating with my heartstrings Into deep emotive duets Your passion, like a high tide Floods my senses In every wave that rushes past I'm feeling more echoes of you

Grievously
There's nothing to say Silence is love's darkest foe A soulless black hole No fight, no struggle Just an impenetrable Wall of wordless doubt Forever it grows Like a malignant tumour Awaiting its prey Sundered grievously The bond gasps one final time As silence triumphs

Making Me Beautiful
Here I sit and hug my pillow Making like a weeping willow I feel my glasses start to steam As I recall your piquant dream I really like the way you flirt Setting off my interest inert You open doors I've not before Dared to venture out to explore Always felt like some ugly duck Until you came and changed my luck When you bashfully showed desire To set my lips awash in fire Your sweet words light an instant spark And leave my heart a lasting mark Butterflies dance 'bout my belly As my whole self turns to jelly Thanks for caresses plentiful... I've never felt so beautiful!

Wall of Tears
As you down a few more beers Letting go your wall of tears Telling anyone who nears Tales of wants, regrets, and fears All dammed up through long hard years Bitter sorrows no one hears Waiting with a mask of cheers For the day escape appears Wish as I to help you through There is too much I can't do Like a wingless angel who Tried so hard but never flew So I'll just look out for you Sending silent blessings to Ward off future strifes undue And to pray your dreams come true

Into the Fire
A strange obsession: Drawn like a nostalgic moth To radiant flames Dancing, daring the Firewalls of oblivion Already too weak To melt, burn, shrivel Like guilty inhibitions Into brief glory Consuming every Last vestige of redemption; And nothing remains

Nickname curiosity
So, while I'm still seeking the time to work on my next poem...I still owe Tiara three more, so there'll be more to come...I was just wondering: What's the story behind your nickname/handle? I must confess, there are ones like Kimpatsu (https://www.deviantart.com/kimpatsu)'s one that I have no idea about at all. :-) (I'll be posting my own story too, so it's not a one-way street.)

Instant messaging
In the last day, I've received a large amount of buddy list addition requests from people I don't know. This is quite strange, although one person who contacted me did identify herself (yay!). Please understand that I only accept buddy list addition requests and respond to messages from people I know. Perhaps people new to online interaction may not yet fully appreciate this, but having had to fend against many random online people (some of whom I hesitate to think of as human, but that's another story) in the nearly-ten years that I've been online, I've had to develop approaches for managing my personal space, and this is what I've chosen t

I wonder if you've moved to the states yet... O.o If so, I hope everything's working out for you. I'm going to China this summer so I'll speak some Mandarin for you!

And I learned two words in Cantonese: Mgoi and Duosie. Oh and I guess "bao" as in full because my Cantonese friend's parents try to feed me so much. :D

Happy summer!

We did eventually move to the US in February 2009. So I guess, as of current writing, we've lived here for 4 years now.

I hope you enjoyed your trip to China, and maybe perhaps you've made further trips? :-)

Cantonese is even more finicky about tones than Mandarin---there are 6 (or 9, depending on whom you ask) instead of 4. But yes, I know the words you're speaking of. :-)

Sorry for the late response. I haven't logged into dA for many years....

Not doing too bad, I guess...what happened since I last posted? Let's see, I visited the States, met Tiara, with whom I got on really well. Tiara came over to Auckland in June, we got engaged, and are planning to move to the States next year.... So, that side of things is all good. :-)

I haven't written any poems since, though! Between work (still mostly 10-hour days) and the relationship, both free time and creative space have been scarce. :-( So, apologies about the late response. (I have not caught up with my AML friends list for very, very long also.)

I hope your life has been doing well, too....

Ooohhhh!!! Congrats! :D Are you moving to Texas or any ideas?

I can totally understand on the time thing, too, no worries. I have very little free time between my work, my relationship, and school. ;) Life is pretty good, pretty busy though. We'll have to catch up sometime, maybe on AIM or something. :D

No, not Texas, hopefully NC if I find work there...so it's still one end of the pjmel, if not the other. :-)

Yes, hopefully a chance to catch up soon...next week is school break, so I don't (cross fingers) have to work then.
