About Me and My Poetry

not as experienced as some of the great poets on this site, I have 200+ poems on my blog, www.dustintwiggs.com. I write about whatever moves me. I find poetry is an opportunity to create a temporary getaway to wherever (or whatever) I want.

Lilly
When I touch my lip to yours,
A summer breeze fills my chest,
I pause to breathe you in,
And savor every touch,
The flavor of your kiss,
The fragrance of your hair.
Your fingers on my arm,
Slowly tracing hearts,
As you sign your name on me,
And I yearn to be a part of you.

two silhouettes danced below a city light,
shadows cast upon a cobbled walk 
where lovers never touched.

A beating heart signifies that I'm alive. 
Lungs are filled to exhale, my pounding chest
Is further proof of my existence.

Lilly
I was born of dirt and into me a life was breathed. 
Vigor mine, to love you tenderly.  
Your body wrapped in vines, my thorns pressed in your side.  
The very ground, our origin, now defiles you 
With spec's of mud upon your dress. I beg of you 
To let me in. 
I am strong. Much stronger and more vicious, 
Than your defenseless limbs could know. 
Protectively they wrap, imprisoning. 
You mustn't cry, endeavor to escape. 
In short time your soul I'll crush,  
Or merely cast away.

What is the heart to you? Merely an ingredient,
In the recipe of man, or gateway to the whimsical,
A crushing vice of things we'll never understand.

Lilly
Vibrant hues of amaryllis are shaded by the Lilac tree,
Surrounded by begonia, camellia, and blossoming Chrysanthemum.
Cobbled stones in place, left unevenly from rain and roots,
But rarely stepped upon. Where grass grows thick but never long,
And sunshine warms the bath where finches feed and bathe.
A single metal chair sits beneath it all, quietly acquiring
The rust of time, character, and stories left untold.
Boxwood builds a border nearing six feet tall. Kept pruned and edged quite
Beautifully, opposite it all. While hibiscus, heather, holly, and hyacinth,
Live secretly within, where her lover cannot see.

In a mess of candlelight and sweat,
I feel your skin softly press on mine.
The curves of your chin are candy to my lips,

Lilly
There’s a fantasy within her eyes, 
A fantastical fairy tale, 
Where’s princes prince and fancy girls are princesses. 
Where giant dragons roam in wait, 
Just for me to slay, while she within her tower, 
Swoons for me and is kept safe. 

Its a place that lasts within the hearts and souls of men, 
And that sparkle in the corner of her brightly shinning eyes. 
Those eager eyes, so full of hope and love. Unjudging and forgiving, 
And protecting. The home and resting place of every fairy tale, rests 
safely in her eyes. And that is where I’d want to be. 

I’ve seen that fairy tales exist, 
Within her eyes and deep within her kiss. 
In a world more real, and more valuable than this, 
Within the hearts and souls of men, and the sparkle 
That glimmers still, in the corner of her eyes.
