POETRY...SAPPHIC SONNETS

Beautiful All Day
©July 25, 2019 – Kimberly D. Miller

Beauty…subjective force, but I find you beautiful all day, of course.

Loving…as well as you can, you long for a woman, but live with a man.

Truth…a harsh, hard fact, your truth is your lie your lie is your pact.

Open…awakened by force, our paths were asea and now are on course.

Heartened…a muse by my side, you’re here for the present you’re here for the ride.

Lightened…spontaneous whims, we give to each other our entangled limbs.

Partner…a woman refined, I call you friend, I call you mine.

FOR THIS IS LOVE…
© July 6, 2019 – Kimberly D. Miller

The silhouette enhances her feminine curves as she leans against the frame of the open door, allowing me to gaze freely upon her open nudity.  Long, dark, wavy hair cascades down her back, rustling gently from the slight breeze of the running fan, her large, voluptuous breasts jostling seductively from side to side as she taunts me with her pose.  As seductive suggestions waft across the room from her sensuous mouth, I think to myself, this is love and lust all rolled into one, just as it should be.  I find myself not only lost in this moment, longing for her beautiful body, but deeply needing all of her, mind, body and soul, entwined with all of me…fingers laced…for eternity…for this is love.


THE HOLE WITHIN…
©Kimberly D. Miller – June 19, 2019

Haunting abyss, dark and cold, deep and raw,
A parting gift I never saw;

  A permanent hole where you used to be,
A silhouette of your love for me;

A hole within my sad, dead heart,
That can’t be filled since forced apart;

A former shell of days gone by,
Nostalgic thoughts are where I lie;

The hole grows wider every day,
The hole within that blocks my way;

No future there before my eyes,
No future love, no future prize;

You showed me how, you led the way,
Without you here, time’s doomed to stay;

Alas I cry, alas I see,
  No one can mend this hole in me.


                                 
                                                        THE PATH AHEAD
                                                        April 21, 2019 - (c) Kimberly D. Miller

The way I get to where I’m going is to walk away from where I’ve been,
The road behind was often hard, but the path ahead is one I’ll win;

Lessons learned and lessons failed, a light to shine the way,
You have found me once again, this time I’ll know just what to say;

Life is cloudy, life is clear, a mountain yet to climb,
Essential strength, a wanton bond, a feast on yet to dine;

Amazing touch, amazing grace, a pathway to divine,
My loving touch, a faithful bliss, a time to finally shine;

Golden green, emerald blue, a place to call my own,
I’ve always known that you were it, the place that I call home.




WHEN SOMEONE DIED
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – January 25, 2019

A blackened hole of deep despair,
held me under, shed me bare;

No one sees the hole inside,
It buried deep when someone died;

No one knows me from back then,
Why did they leave, why did it end;

The secrets that were left unhealed,
the truths that finally they revealed;

A hole so deep it can't be filled,
Not through drink and not through pills;

Guide me safe to hallowed shores,
My head is clear, my heart is yours;

I know you're there, I feel your soul,
Keep me centered, bleed me whole;

Thank you for the life I live,
Thank you for the gift you give.

I miss you so.

PALES IN COMPARISON...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – December 17, 2018


Beautiful, haunting soul...ever present amidst the dreary moments of my day, creeping endlessly in from the dark corners of my mind, to envelop my essence and taunt my senses with merciless yearning...peace, evicted, unwilling to leave, has been eradicated from my heart...no safe place remains to bare my soul...your mark has branded me so that I may never again know complacency, never remember the sweet scent of a crisp, rainy night, nor the sight of physical beauty as in comparison, it ever pales next to your inner adornment...How did you find a way to tear down the walls of the fortress around my wounded heart as no one has ever pentrated such steel and emerged triumphant, though women have tried...My fears, now exposed and ever so raw, have no choice but to flee and find solace in another, for they are no longer protected here in the open and they are no longer needed...I am grateful (for your persistence), I am angry (at my weakness), I am confused (by your presence) and I am ready...for your love.

EXPOSED...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller - December 3, 2018


My heart stands before you, unclothed, walls crumbling...exposed.
I'm weathered and worn...years of emotional construction shattered before me as this mystery unfolds...who are you? How did you know you could defeat the guards and penetrate this fortress? Why have I never known a woman like you? How can you see my soul, for no one else has ever seen it before...It's impossible, improbable, illogical, that anyone from this time, in this realm would see me...and, dare I say it...know me, but here you are, looking right at me. It must be sorcery for I've trusted no one in my five decades of existence. I'm outwardly brave but inwardly trembling and curious. I've never known a power so strong it would allow me to see a heart with mine naked eye, but yours stands before me...exposed, waiting to be explored, inviting me in like a treasured, old friend. I see you too, all of you...I know you...I've always known you, but my walls had cloaked my eyes from truth. You're her...the half that was ripped from conception, yet in the depth of my soul I knew you must still be, for why else would I long for you without the knowledge of who you were. We're one. Our quest has ended as now we stand before each other, walls destroyed, finally meant to live...free...exposed.



A SOUL OF SCARS...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – November 20, 2018

A soul of scars has walled my heart, I trust no one at all,
But when we met you had my back, you wouldn't let me fall;

Honesty, trust and love, your gifts bestowed on me,
I will not fear, I will not run, for this I guarantee.

Drowning deep in love's debris, you somehow make me feel,
I wrap my heart around your love, a woman always will;

We were fated from the start, our entities entwined,
Locked inside each others' arms, through feminine design;

You and I will always share, a bond so rare and true,
You and I will always win, as we will see it through.




TALE OF A FATED KISS...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – November 20, 2018

As the evening progressed...wine in hand, deep conversations, gentle carresses, a feeling of intense passion welled up inside of me to the point that all I could see of your beautiful face were your full, inviting lips...no other thing then existed in my world but that I needed to press my lips to yours...I needed to feel that spark ignite flame within my soul. The sight before me cried out and beckoned my name like a moth to a flame...there is no turning back, not now...I'm all in...fully committed to this moment in time...drifting ever closer to your mouth, entranced, uncontrollably pulled in...ever so slowly...finally our lips touch...the sensation of our mouths meeting one another sends shivers up my spine and It's all that I can do to contain myself so that I do not lose control right then and there...I kiss you deeper now as you sink into my arms and share in the intensity as we connect...right here and right now...we are one...


IT'S JUST THAT...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – November 20, 2018

It's not that I can't live without you, It's just that I don't need to;

It's not that you're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen, it's just that you're the most beautiful person I've ever known;

It's not that I lie awake at night thinking about you, it's just that I can't sleep without you next to me;

It's not that I'm completely in love with you, it's just that I've never loved anyone else this way;

It's not that we are meant to be, it's just that we aren't meant to be with anyone else;

It's not that we will spend our lives together, it's just that we will never part.


ONLY HUMAN...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller - November 19, 2018

I'm only human, faults and all...If you prick me, do I not bleed?
if you tickle me, do I not laugh? if you poison
me, do I not die? and if you wrong me, shall I not
revenge? I stumble over my words to the point that I cannot find clarity in the exact moment I need it to convey an intricate thought, but with pen in hand, the words find their designated meaning. I'm awkward and weird but define myself as unique. I easily interpret people around me, but rarely perceive myself. My thoughts are flawed and open to interpretation as I can turn just one of them a million different ways, reshaping its meaning time and time again until it seems nothing like the idea from whence it came. I'm talkative and sometimes overly so, but I have a lot to say. My words fall on deaf ears more often than not, as scarcely does anyone really care about my views and musings, but then again, I'm listening and that matters. I think outside the box and often out loud and am usually judged for talking to myself, but I'm fine with that. I generally spill food on my blouse when I eat or cook and I always laugh about it because...it's funny. I have a quick wit and sense of humor and use them to deflect uncomfortable situations when I am nervous. I bite my nails and drink wine, but I don't even realize I do the first one and the second one relaxes me without having to ingest manmade pharmaceuticals. You may judge me and the world I have created, you may look at me critically and keep an enormous distance from me or...you may not, but certainly at this point you are wondering, why does any of this matter? The answer? It doesn't because...I'm only human...and so are you
.

THANK YOU…
(c) November 16, 2018 - Kimberly D. Miller

Thank you for baring your soul with me,
For with you I’m strong and with you I’m free;

Thank you for lifting me up off the ground,
For once I was lost, but with you I’m found;

Thank you for listening when deaf are most ears,
For we came together in spite of our fears;

Thank you for kindness, respect and for love,
For being my gift from heaven above;

Thank you for being my lover, my friend,
And staying with me for a time, til the end.

BEYOND
(c) October 20, 2018 – Kimberly D. Miller

Beyond distant memories, past hurts and hidden truths, lies a valley of fogiveness, of longing and of need. Beyond time lost, time spent, time wasted in regret, lies a chance for a new beginning....a new time. A time of change and understanding, a time of regeneration and reconnection...a time to fall from grace and finally let go and live life to its fullest possible potential. A time for faith in fate. A time for faith in love, no time for fear of love. Let go of damage from behind...leap into change that's ever-blind. Beyond all time and space, beyond the lines that crease my face, beyond the walls that cage my heart, beyond the reasons we did part. Let's trust ourselves, the past is past, and reconnect our souls at last.

UNTIL WE MAKE IT WHOLE...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller – October 7, 2018

My head is worn from broken sleep, from dreams of you and I,
A deeper bond is meant to be, our freedom needs to fly;

Unleash the shackles from your heart, the logic from your head,
Let our time be free of life, a fantasy instead;

Let me rock you in my arms and fend away your fears,
You have nothing to regret, no doom, no shame, no tears;

You and I are kindred flames, there has to be key,
To solve this cryptic mystery of how we're meant to be;

It comes to me from time to time, as if it's almost clear,
The answer's that we need a path to navigate and steer;

Be with me eternally, in mind, in heart, in soul,
Be my love until the day that we can make it whole.



A DAY IN OUR LIFE...
(c) Kimberly D Miller September 27, 2018

Walking hand-in-hand, leaves falling all around us, russett yellow, orange and brown, rustling in the breeze. Our hearts aglow with love and passion, drunk on lust for life and basking in the glow of our fondness for each other. People everywhere, but no one else exists as we make our way to wherever it is we are going, crisp autumn breeze swirling around our cheeks, blowing clouds overhead, casting shadows to dance upon the ground as we walk right over the top of them, not paying attention to anything or anyone but each other. Music from a nearby troubador wafts through the icy air, filling the breeze with romance. Is it possible that I could love you more in this one moment than I ever have in my entire life? Yes, I guess it is, I thought to myself, utterly astounded by the possibility. Eyes locked deeply, we danced through the crowd as though no one was watching and who cared if they were, cheek-to-cheek, twirling, embracing, through the beautiful falling leaves, high on passion...loving life!

LET'S FIGURE IT OUT...
(c) September 26, 2018

Alone in time until you come, ajar I hold the gate,
I crave the bond that we will share, I'll stay right here and wait;

You know how to find me, but you don't quite know when,
time can be so hard to bide, but time can be a friend;

Our tether has become unstrung and now must be retied,
we must learn to open up, to reconnect inside;

I feel you there, whenever you are, you're almost in my reach,
I close my eyes and see you there, when I stroll the beach;

Impatience is my flaw my love, it is your flaw as well,
because the love that we will share will cast an awesome spell;

One so rare, so deep and true that no one else in time,
could ever dare to hope for, could ever dream to find.

ROMANTIC EVENING
(c) September 5, 2018 – Kimberly D Miller

Across a table candlelit, basking in our glow,
your eyes sent love, so intense, a love I've never known;

Hands entwined, interlaced, a magical allure,
connection born so powerful, it's meant-to-be I'm sure;

A glass of wine, a lover's toast, arm in arm we drink,
I feel a bit light-headed, it must be the wine, I think?

Engrossed in conversation, the meal was fine at best,
I'm sure it was delicious, we were otherwise obsessed;

Lead me to the couch my love, let's cuddle by the fire,
let me whisper in your ear, let's fill our hearts' desire;

Run your fingers through my hair, I will do the same,
caress my face and draw me near, softly say my name;

Pause a moment, gently now, just before we kiss;
take my hand, let's explore, our eternal bliss.

I MATTER...
© Kimberly D Miller – September 4, 2018

Shoved aside from very young, no voice to call my own,
feelings deep within a well, I've never felt at home;

Tossed away like used debris, when people's needs are fed,
their classic mold I'll never fit, inside my world is dead;

Judgments up one side and down, belittled and betrayed,
and now they call me “sensitive,” see what they have made?

No self-worth to lean on, no strength to keep me warm,
no coping skills to call my own to weather through a storm;

Then one day I realized, I am just as good as you,
call me names and beat me down, but I'll get up as good as new;

I'm strong, I'm free, I'm sensitive and kind,
all traits I'm proud to own, all traits I'm glad to find;

I'm here, I matter, there's a difference that I make,
I throw your judgment in your face and offer my hand to shake.

THESE ARE THE MOMENTS
(c) Kimberly D Miller – September 2, 2018

Sitting on the beach with my feet dug into the warm sand,
gazing into the wonderous awe of Gaia's sea, the cool breeze blowing through my hair as the sun warms my face, I know what it is be alive. The deep, green mountains, stand tall and majestic. An enormous feeling of gratitude wells up inside of me and makes its way into tears of joy. These are the moments that define us...these are the moments that reflect our inner soul.

JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU
(c) Kimberly D Miller
September 1, 2018
You came from out of nowhere and now, you're everywhere.
Many years ago, we exchanged hearts and now, I feel you.
I feel you in my sleep, I feel you in my waking hours and in the hours in between.
It's as though I've become the air surrounding you, in and out every time you breathe.
How is this possible?
We barely maintain a physical bond and yet, emotionally & spiritually the bond cannot be severed.
I often think you have moved on and then I feel you thinking about me and it's strong.
It's a connection like I've had with no other in this realm.
I remember the physicality and the amazing passion shared from even just a touch.
The mere thought of you throws my senses into such a heightened state that I cannot breathe.
Thoughts of our fingers interlaced, walking to our favorite restaurant, makes me smile.
As do memories of sitting on the beach, hand in hand.
I'm lost in your heart and wherever it goes, I go. Forever.
There is no choice and no use pretending otherwise.

I WILL NOT LET YOU GO THIS TIME
(c) Kimberly D. Miller
September 1, 2018

I have a plot, I have a plan, I don't quite know just how,
but I will find a way my love, and to this I vow;

A way to guide, a way to steer, a way to make you see,
A way that opens up your heart to show that you need me;

The truth is there inside your light, buried deep inside,
You've always known, but feared it's home, no more time to hide;

The life you've led, a falable cloak to try to conceal the fear,
But finally trust that those who love you, will always hold your dear;

Shed the cloak and bare your truth, our love will hold you strong,
Find your way back to our bond, it isn't hard, it isn't wrong;

Be yourself and be with me, need me now and lean on me,
I promise you that I am here, a lot more sage, a lot more free;

I will find a way my love, to ask you to be mine,
I will help you, I will guide you, I will not let you go this time.

DRUNK ON OBSESSION...
(c) Kimberly D. Miller May 12, 2018

I'm drunk on my obsession 
of our split-apart connection; 
Drowing in our love and 
suffocated by our lust;
Lost in confusion by a 
long-distance, kindred prison;
But clarity is not a commodity I would 
choose if it sobered my lusting consciousness.

MY RAMBLING MIND...
May 1, 2018, Kimberly D. Miller

Trapped in the abyss of my rambling mind,
knowing no love, left far behind;

Clouds are crumbling, fences rise,
Lies be told, mine trusting eyes;

A fortress gate around my heart,
clinging to the broken part;

Hiding me from self and foes,
till random chance a dawn has rose;

Hearts afire, hearts aflame,
no one to stay, no one to blame;

A valiant blade defends my guard,
from glass embedded, broken chards;

Tearing down a fortress strong,
A process torn, a process long;

A starry sign from up above,
Sends crystal guidance, steeped with love.




I WISH I COULDN’T...
(c) Kimberly D Miller - March 2018

I wish I couldn’t see your face,
Want your touch or your embrace;

Miles away, time and tide,
Until we find another side;

Another wave to join our paths,
Another chance to join at last;

I wish you didn’t haunt my soul,
I miss your smile, your hand to hold;

By chance one day, a spell to cast,
A chance per se, to be your last.

I wish I couldn’t want you near,
But I am lost without you here.

BEAUTIFUL GUISE…
Kimberly D Miller – 12/2017

You’re soulful you’re caring, creative and wise,
A sensitive heart in a beautiful guise;

Illogical logic, whimsical care,
A sense of adventure, style and flare;

Misunderstood by others, at best,
A strong suit of armor when put to the test;

A heart full of love that’s yearning to give,
My love is yours always, wherever you live.


YOU WERE MY LIFE…
© Kimberly D Miller - 12-1-2017

You were my life, my friend, my love,
But you were needed up above;

Called to serve her, called back home,
It’s where my essence longs to roam;

Gratitude for who I am,
My world has died, don’t give a damn;

Time just flutters, side to side,
I have no goals left to abide;

I know you’re here, but you’re still gone,
I can’t decipher dusk from dawn;

I am me because of you,
Thank you for the you I knew.

(Original photograph by Kimberly D Miller 11/2017)

I WISH YOU DIDN’T HAUNT ME…
© Kimberly D Miller – Nov 30, 2017

I wish you didn’t haunt me; it cuts through night and day,
I want so much to blow your mind; I have so much to say;

I wish that you would listen, our world revolves within,
It’s all about your point of view and not about the sin;

Time and tide march on and on, a bright day to behold,
Our love could find the balance there, but you are not so bold;

We’re linked in love, in heart, in soul; we’re even linked in mind,
We needed time to talk it out, but time was not so kind;

She reared her ugly head in greed and parted us in space,
But she could never take away our bond, our special place;

Forward now we trek ahead, our eyes to gaze no more,
But sight or no we’ll always have a bond that reaches shore.


YOU’RE THE VOICE IN MY HEART…
(c)Kimberly D. Miller - October 11, 2017

You’re the voice in my heart which longs to express,
Fighting the dam with strain and duress;

You’re the song that I sing, lyrics unsolved,
The mystery of love, deep and evolved;

A chasm of facets, a story untold,
Unerring beauty, a life to unfold;

You’re the breeze on my skin, gentle and pure,
Creative abundance so faithful, so sure;

You’re an abstract in paint, a canvas sublime,
Our paths will collide, as one and in time.


YOU HAUNT ME...
© Kimberly D Miller – July 15,2017

Beauty so soft, inside and out,
You’re the one that I need, there’s never a doubt;

You want, I yearn, we try to align,
If fate has my way, you’re mine by design;

Worlds apart, but together as one,
There’s no explanation, it’s only begun;

Destiny brought us through trial and rain,
Queens of our realm, the dragon is slain;

My hand outstretched, waiting for yours,
A chapter of ending, an opening of doors;

A mystery of fate, a clandestine love,
You haunt me, I hold you, it’s finally enough.

Be with me…

THE PRELUDE
By Kimberly D Miller – July 3, 2017

Prelude to kiss, searching each others’ eyes,
Probing and finding the beauty that hides inside;

As women we look, to see what lies behind,
The fronts, the face, the plastic wrap, that greets the world outside.

A different you, a package part, a facet to behold,
I see you there, behind the kiss, as our lives unfold;

Leaning in, eyes on eyes, the moment just before,
As our lips, before they touch, connecting to the core;

It’s all revealed, our deepest need, the secrets to our heart;
The prelude is intent, desire, the purest way to start.



CONNECTION…
(c) June 30, 2017 - Kimberly D Miller

I dream of you, night and day,
My soul, my heart, in every way;

A woman so rare, so undefined,
You fill my world, you blow my mind;

We share our lives, it’s time we spend,
We talk and talk, we’re such good friends;

They often say that love is blind,
But we have layers, through the rind;

A deep connection we have cast,
We’re lovers, partners, we will last;

To hell with judgment, hell with fear,
We will make it, year through year;

A bond so real I’ve never known,
Come find me now, the seed is sown;

I’ll be right here, we’re worth the wait,
My love, my partner, my soul of mates.


FROM THE ASHES…
© June 17, 2017

From the ashes we will rise,
No more hiding, no more lies;

No more judgment, no more tears,
We’re who we are with no more fear;

Free to live, free to fight,
No more darkness, only light;

Let them know that we are one,
We’re here to stay, we’ll never run;

We’re bound together arm in arm,
Let them come and we will storm;

Unique and different, out and proud,
We’re here to stay and this we vow;

Woman to woman, hold my hand,
We’ll take this world we’ll make a stand;

We will knock them down to size,
From the ashes we will rise.

NOT ALONE…
© 06/13/2017

The hopes, the fears, the present holds,
We don’t know, as life unfolds;

Hold me now until the end,
As my lover, as my friend;

Be my life and I’ll be yours,
Our bond can open every door;

You’re the woman I desire,
A passion born of burning fire;

A life together, not alone,
A love like this I’ve never known;

Some will travel far and wide,
To find a tie that binds inside;

My love is far yet ever near,
If only faith released her fear;

Fulfilled inside and not alone,
When I’m with her I’ve found my home.




I MISS YOU
© 6/2017 Kimberly D Miller

 I miss you…with all of my heart,
All we need is a brand new start;

Your life is your own, the same for me,
But our life together…eternity.

Obstacles abound, our difference is clear,
Yet my lonely heart yearns for you to be here;

We’re physically parted but spiritually tied,
I feel you each day, here by my side;

We share such a bond, like nothing I’ve known,
Time spent without you, is time quite alone;

Remember this poem in days lain ahead,
For it is my quest, my plight has been pled.

I miss you.



A GIRL TO A GIRL
(c) 2015 Kimberly D Miller

You touch my life with the gift of your presence,
I'm eternally whole because of your essence;

You live in my heart, you color my world,
A soul full of passion, a girl to a girl;

If you need me I'm with you so never forget,
You're a part of me now, I'll never regret;

Never know guilt, never know fear,
Trust in our faith, no need to shed tears;

We have what we were, we have what we are,
Our bond is unbroken, not near and not far;

Break not the circle, we'll always be there,
To lean on each other with love and with care.


WHERE THE TRUTH STILL LIES
© May 1, 2017 – Kimberly D Miller

Your haunting eyes, they pierce my soul…
Ebony hair, so long and full;

Feminine build, full and round…
A deeper bond cannot be found;

I wonder if you’ll ever dare…
To show me now that you still care;

Our endless bond is ever strong…
A solid vow that won’t go wrong;

Clasp my hand and squeeze it tight…
Hold me close throughout the night;

I love you so, but you have fear…
Please don’t shed another tear;

I need to gaze into your eyes…
For that is where the truth still lies;

IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME…
©Kimberly D Miller – 04/2017

It’s not you, it’s me…It’s not me, it’s you…
It’s everything, it’s nothing…It’s who we are, it’s what we do;

It’s what we say, it’s how we love...
It’s me…it’s you…below…above;

It’s who we are, it’s who we’re not…
It’s what we have, it’s what we’ve not…it’s everything we’ve got;

It’s wanting me across the miles, a little every day…
It’s wanting you in every moment, each and every way.





WITH ME…
© April, 2017
Kimberly D. Miller

My thoughts on a page, so crisp and so clear…
Alludes to the fact that you are not here.

A fact, not a fiction, and one I abhor…
My heart’s on the table, it’s you I adore.

Devotion to you, I cannot deny…
My love is your shelter, just crawl inside.

Be with me always, we’ll conquer the storm…
I’ll shelter your body, I’ll keep you from harm.

Breathe in my essence, exhale my love…
Our bond is a blessing, from heaven above.


IF NOT IN THIS LIFE...
(c) April 2017 - Kimberly D. Miller

I think of you…every day…without fail.  I don’t want to…it causes such pain to know I cannot live every waking moment in your arms where I long to be, but think of you I still do.

Ever envious of those in your world…they, who reap the privilege of basking in your smile, shining in your laughter, drowning in your eyes, knowing your thoughts and sharing your touch.

To have found you in this lifetime would otherwise prove the existence of eternal bliss, but alas, what’s meant to be is ever meant to be. 

Though my heart needs you so, it will exude patience until you find me once again…until you find the courage to live the life you’re meant to live…In my arms…eternally…if not in this life…then in the next.




YOU WILL BE YOU...
(c) March 21, 2017- Kimberly D. Miller


You hold me...in your mind, in your heart...I feel you...from the end, from the start.


You love me...with your soul, with your mind...you feel me...from the depths, so aligned.


Fear subsides you...I understand, you will be you...when you can.


I'll give you courage, I'll give you strength...We'll go the distance, we'll stay the length.


Come to terms with who you are, and freedom engulfs you and buries your scar.


We are women, by design...fused by attraction, we're meant to be twined.




WE ARE EVERYTHING...
Kimberly D. Miller (c) 02/2017


My art is me, a release of full form...who I am longs to be transformed into creation beyond imagination...my life transcends all plains in relative realms as I reveal the energy of being...truth is life, true life...having you does not make me whole for I am the sum of my parts, but completes my purpose in creation...for you are the completion in the cycle that melds with my vibration...you are the completion to the equation that creates our “we”...we are everything.


BY THE SHORE
Kimberly D. Miller (c) January 2017

I find my soul when I take to the shore,
Something that dwindles, more and more...

The rush of waves, the sound of surf,
Nothing revives me, nothing on earth...

My time with nature sets me free,
For time's an illusion, wait and see...

The rat race, the dollar, almighty and fake,
Just a few of the things I wish to forsake...

Fill me with passion, fill me with hue,
Fill me with life as only you do...

Beside the shore I come alive,
For the sea is salvation, she won't be deprived.



IMAGINE
(c) Kimberly Miller - 11/2016

Imagine a world in which only we live,
absent of others, a lifetime to give...
Imagine our eyes blazing ahead,
a future for two, inhibitions are shed...

Giving myself only to you,
wanting no other, letting us through...
Giving yourself only to me,
forsaking all others, we can be free...

Imagine a world in which we are entwined,
sharing our hearts, sharing our minds...
Imagine my fingers laced into yours,
our love is conjoined, mutually adorned...


I love you.



I wanted to post this even though it is not a poem I have written but the words...these lyrics are so beautiful and they really express the way I feel so I wanted to share it.  It is a song by KT Tunstall called Universe and U...

A fire burns
Water calms
You cool me down
When I'm cold inside
You are warm and bright
You know you are so good for me
With your child's eyes
You are more than you seem
You see into space
I see in your face
The places you've been
The things you have learned
They sit with you so beautifully

You know there's no need to hide away
You know I tell the truth
We are just the same
I can feel everything you do
Hear everything you say
Even when you're miles away
'Coz I am me, the universe and you

Just like stars burning night
Making holes in the night
We are building bridges

You know
When you're on your own
I'll send you a sign
Just so you know
I am me, the universe and you



HOME WITH ME
(c) Kimberly D Miller - 10-09-2016

Laid back in my claw-foot tub, a glass of wine in hand, soaking in a hot concoction of Epsom salt, bubble bath and coconut oil, I gaze into the candle light across the room and snuggle up with my hopes, my dreams and my aspirations. Each new day dawns new trust, new hope and new revelations of positivity, possibility and life at its very core. I'm alone, but never lonely...I'm strong, but I still want you...more now than ever before. Thoughts of our future give me the courage to head into the night alone...until we can be together...thoughts of our love lead me to faith in all things miraculous and good. Until the time for us arrives, I will make every moment count...until I feel your touch again, I will try to touch others with my words...until I gaze into your eyes and hear your voice, I will offer hope to those who need...until you are home...home with me.



THIS TIME...ETERNITY
(c) 09-2016 Kimberly D Miller


Your face is the first thing I want to see when I'm blessed with the dawn of a new day...
to be wrapped in your arms, feeling your warmth is my desire...
an uncomparable connection...
no longer a lone reed amid a pool of uncertainty...
you are all I need...
some will tell us that we're wrong, but fate seals its victories with a kiss...
our destinies, long and full, yet incomplete until the moment we meet again...
this time a negative past swept away in favor of everlasting joy...
this time...
the last time...
this time...
eternity.


A NEW HORIZON
(c) 09-2016...Kimberly D Miller

I see a new horizon coming into view,
My heart has come alive again, my life will start anew;

This time of times I'll get it right,
I've learned to love with me in sight;

For love is life and life is love,
I'm blessed by angels up above;

My heart exudes a brand new song,
I'm whole again, it won't be long.


A SIGH OF PROMISE...

Your hair is draped across my breasts,
your head lays gently on my chest;

My skin inhales your baited breath,
we're entwined beyond our death;

Your touch sends passion to my soul,
in your arms I know I'm whole;

I watch you sleep, I cannot rest,
trembling deeply, feeling blessed;

I rest my arm atop your hips,
a sigh of promise escapes your lips;

My mind, it races night and day,
you are my home, I'll always stay.

IN THIS LIFETIME
(c) August, 2013 - Kimberly D Miller

You send me a smile from across the room; wrapped in assurance, tied with a bow...your smile, so loving, so kind and demure, reflects the love we share and mirrors my adoration for you.  When you enter a room all eyes devour your beauty as it shines from within.  You are the truest form of reality I've ever known.  I am paralyzed in my present existence as I know we cannot meld in this lifetime...eking out a mere existence with no hope of ever knowing the other half of my soul as it is the half you have, and always will, possess. 



STAY WITH ME
(c)2016 Kimberly D. Miller


Your silhouette shines through the night and reveals a curvaceous, beautiful sight,
my waiting skin's impatience to embrace eternally ever so tight;


A sigh of passion escapes my lips, pulling you in to a passionate kiss, I have never known love for another like this;


This feeling that I feel for you can never be compared, no one has ever led me there, no one has ever dared;


You possess a part of me, a gift from me to you, our hearts are one, combined of two, nothing less will ever do;


This feeling that comes over me whenever you are near, cuts through time through years and years, be with me now...negate your fears.


Stay with me...






OUR DIFFERENCE
(c) June 2016

Your indecisive decisions, breed a lack of precision,
But you pull me in and lead me to submission;

Our difference is our alliance, our sameness is our bond,
I had to let you see my light, I had to know if you'd respond;

I'm lost in a vast world of clarity where my actions have no bounds,
With you I know my life's complete, the feeling is profound;

I want us to be different, because we can, because we are,
I want us to know unity, because we share a common scar;

Our desperate search for romance will be the tie that sets us free,
We'll find it in each other, we'll set assail, we'll search the seas;

Our trying trek will one day reap the love we have to share,
A love so deep, a love so real, a love that one cannot compare.





THE WOMAN INSIDE OF YOU
(c) June 2016

The woman you are is inside of you,
Though you try so to hide that true side of you,

I see her quite clearly,
I love her so dearly,

I hope you will find her and let her break through.

WOMEN ARE CRAZY
(c) 2016 - Kimberly D Miller

Women are crazy from time to time,
They make a decision and then change their mind;

They worry and worry, why can't they relax,
They pity the world for the beauty it lacks;

They endure all the hardships thrown at them by life,
They truly amaze me, I'll make one my wife;

They're sensitive creatures, so soft and demure,
But just don't offend them, of that I am sure;

I love her for reasons that she is a she,
I know about women, I am one you see.
MOMENTS IN TIME...
(c) Kimberly D Miller 2016

I can't be there, you can't be here,
But our time is drawing near;

Time for us to be as one,
Our routined lives to come undone;

A moment here, a moment there,
We seize them all, we lay them bare;

We open up our cluttered hearts,
And soon we'll make a brand new start;

We live our moments here, in time;
Because I'm yours, because you're mine.


LOVE'S DEBRIS
(c) May, 2016


The day surrounds my tired brain, 
I know my head will go insane;

I walk the beach along the shore, 
it soothes my soul right to the core;

The water clears my hazy head, 
it drowns the toxic things we said;

It calms me with its gentle breeze, 
its beauty sends me to my knees;

Thoughts of us entice my eyes, 
I see our lives, I fantasize;

I feel your love connect with mine, 
we'll stand the test, the test of time;

The best for us is yet to be, 
we will not drown in love's debris.


MAKE US WHOLE
(c) Kimberly Miller 2016

The matted sky blows cripsy air,
I'd give anything if you were there;

To hold me close and take my hand,
Only you can understand;

My love for you reigns ever strong,
Do you know where you belong?

Life is short, but you I trust,
To guide me home, do what you must;

Free your soul and let it go,
Join my half and make us whole.


I love Lenny Kravitz and his way with words. As someone who writes and appreciates poetry, I really think he has a handle on how to convey these deep thoughts and then turn them into music. What a beautiful talent. I wanted to share the lyrics to "You Belong to Me," because, not only are the lyrics beautiful, but the music is soulful and beautiful as well.

I Belong To You

By Lenny Kravitz

You are the flame in my heart
You light my way in the dark

You are the ultimate star


You lift me from up above
Your unconditional love

Takes me to paradise


I belong to you
And you

You belong to me too


You make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet
You make me feel so divine
Your soul and mine are entwined


Before you I was blind

But since, I've opened my eyes
And with you there's no disguise
So I could open up my mind


I always loved you from the start
But I could not figure out

That I had to do it everyday


So I put away the fight
Now I'm gonna live my life

Giving you the most in every way


I belong to you
And you

You belong to me too

You make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet

Oh I belong to you
I belong to you

And you, you

You belong to me too

You make my life complete
You make me feel so sweet

Oh I belong to you
I belong to you

And you, you

You belong to me too

You make my life complete
You make my life complete

You make me feel so sweet

Oh I belong to you
I belong to you

And you, and you

You belong to me too

You make my life complete
You make my life complete

You make me feel so sweet



WHENEVER YOU ARE...
(c) April, 2016 - Kimberly D Miller

When I think of how much I want you, it's all I can do to stay in the moment.
I want to leap off the tracks of time and join you where you are
so that our lives can finally begin together.
I am filled with elation and desire, so much it burns a fire
inside of me that cannot be doused with mere water.
No one can put asunder the destiny that must be shared.
No one can alter the imprint of what is meant to be.
We must give in to the force that split us apart in this realm
as only then can we reunite in truth and full disclosure.
Only then can we find the will to come together as one.
Only then will our souls unite so they finally find peace.
We will know total and utter fulfillment, freedom, joy and
desire as we have never known before.
I'll wait for you, whenever you are.

YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY
(c)2016 Kimberly D. Miller

As a breeze that follows the rain…you take my breath away,
Feelings so deep, so much to gain, I don’t know what to say;

As a song that soothes my savage breast…you take my breath away,
My eyes meet yours, passion ignites, it won’t be held at bay;

As the stars shine vast above…you take my breath away,
Take my hand and be my love, I know I’m home to stay.

Everything's changed, but I still feel you,
We no longer talk, but I still know you;


Our pasts were meant to cross, our futures may still align,
but the answers will only come with time;


An impossible situation, yet I still want you everyday,
There are so many things left unsaid, I wish that I could say;


A day hasn't passed that I haven't thought of you, of us,
Gathering patience each day, making it through, but just;


If only you had wanted me the way I wanted you,
But that just seems to be my fate, it's what I always do;


I fall in love with amazing souls, a few have crossed my door,
When I love I make it count, I live it to the core;


We wish that things could happen when we want them to,
But they happen when they happen, and they there's nothing we can do;


I will wait until it's time for us to finally be,
I will wait until it's right for us to be free...to be we.

PLEASE HOLD MY HAND
(c) March 2016 - Kimberly's Insanity

Please hold my hand through thick and thin,
Through good and bad, through life and limb;

Please hold my hand through joy and tears,
Day after day, year after year;

Please hold my hand, connect with me,
Free to be us, free to be we;

Please hold my hand I love you so,

Please stay with me, don't ever go.




YOU DID IT WITH A LOOK...
(c) 2016, March 9

You did it with a look, you know,
You cast a spell, I can't let go;

When your eyes met mine...intense,
Now my world does not make sense;

Try and try I can't break free,
To find what's left of my sanity;

What will happen to my heart,
If I can't be with my split apart;

My faith is strong, I will not fear,
We'll work it out without a tear;

Our destiny is passion bound,
It's love, it's lust, it's all around;

You cast a spell I can't let go,
You did it with a look, you know.

THE HUMAN RACE
(c)Kimberly's Insanity -02/2016

Get out of bed, see your face,
Primp and prep for the human race;

Apply the makeup to you your eyes,
Work and stress until you die;

Skip your breakfast, rush and hurry,
They feed you fear, they feed you worry;

Force a smile, choke down lunch,
Play their games, take their punch;

Sit in traffic, cuss and fret,
Make your money, drown in debt;

You're feeling like you just can't win,
Yet do it all again and again.

This poem is dedicated to everyone who knows in their heart that there are other ways to live and that anything we want in life is possible if we want it, know it, and live it. Define your dreams and they are but yours.









FOR HER

The smell of your hair, the touch of your skin, You radiate beauty from outside and in;

Take my hand and be my girl, lead me there, complete my world;

Let me hold you with my heart, our love is rare we'll never part;

This time is ours no need to wait, don't think it through don't hesitate,

I'll be there with open arms, to take you in, safe and warm.

INSIDE A WOMAN

Her beauty is deep I seek her affections,
Her laughter, her light, her perfect imperfections;

With her fragile strength, she's a vision to see,
I need her poetic love, pour it all over me;

She knows who she is, she portrays a clear vision,
She will make up her mind with decisive indecision;

I truly believe she's my ultimate experience,
I'm even in love with her insecure confidence;

Her certainty abounds with quiet ambivalence;
No one can match her, there is no equivalent.

Does she love me or just the idea of me,
Sometimes its blurred by her confusing clarity;

Inside of a woman there's an intricate story,

If I'm patient she'll tell me, it's simplistic glory.







-YOU-

(c) 01/2016 Kimberly D Miller



I stand back on the beach in awe of the sight of the salt-laden waves crashing to the shore,  yet they pale in the unique artistry you bring to the definition of femininity. ..


Your soul emanates purity and honesty and in my eyes you can do no wrong for when I'm with you I lose sight of all else. With a single glance you bathe me in your poetic love,  no confusion, no shrouding, I can clearly see. ..


You stand by me through thick and thin. I no longer know where you stop and I begin. ..I cease to be me when I'm with you for together we are us, hearts, minds, bodies and souls reunited as one from another realm of existence. It takes my breath away and becomes my life, all of it, for I long for you and I'm drowning in such gratitude for this gift...


We hold the illusion that we can break free but we never will. ..it's bigger than anything we have ever known and defines the eternity from which we will never leave...nor would we want to.



After much, much work (phew!) I finally have
Sapphic Sonnets published and ready for sale...AND it is at a discounted price...only $6.00 (and some change). You can click the link, but you can also find it on Lulu.com, which is the primary place to buy with the discount.  In a week it will also be available on Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

I'm SO excited by this last edition to my poetry trilogy. I hope you will like it as much as I do and thank you for all of your support.  It means the world to me!!!





Accepting yourself for who you are, the realest of yous, can be a long time coming for some of us.  Add being a lesbian into that mix and you have a whole lot of confusion and emotional chaos to filter through as well. The greatest gift you can give yourself your whole life, albeit most likely one of the most difficult, is to be gut-wrenchingly honest with yourself about who you really are, and then be brave enough to live it...out and proud.  Then and only then will you ever really know freedom.

THE REALEST OF YOUS
(c) 2015 Kimberly D Miller

We fight and we struggle, we push and we pull,
Our goal is the same, we want to feel whole;

The bravest thing that you can do,
Is to get to know the realest of yous;

Stand in the mirror and finally take stock,
We're running a race, a race with the clock;

Sometimes we build on a life that's untrue,
To try to show others their version of you;

We may even think that we like things we hate,
Just to convince us our heads are on straight;

We fear if we're honest we'll lose fam and friends,
But why live for others, why follow their trends;

Muster your courage before time is through,

Be true to yourself, be the realest of yous.




BECAUSE OF A WOMAN...
(c)2015 Kimberly D Miller

Her sensual lips, her haunting eyes,
Skin so soft I crawl inside;

I tremble, I yearn, I have to stay,
Because of a woman I feel this way;

My body can taste you where you are,
I constantly crave you from afar;

I wish you would write me about what's in your heart,
I wonder your thoughts when we are apart;

If I'm under a spell I don't want to break free,
I love who you are when you're out here with me;

Search inside, down low, high above,
Look at the sky it's the color of love;

I long to be near you, I wish you could stay,
Because of a woman I feel this way.



TO THE CORE
(c) 2015 Kimberly D Miller

With our arms stretched out in time,
I share your soul and you share mine;

We give each other what we need,
Long distance lines cannot impede;

Our kiss ignites a ring of fire,
Our touch assures our deep desires;

Our thoughts transcend before we speak,
We know instinctively what we seek;

We are separate and yet are one,
So connected, no need to run;

There's so much more we want to share,
What others think we'll never care;

We'll make time no need to waste,
Life's too short don’t heed to haste;

Let's hold hands as we explore,
Let's drift the boat without the oars;

Let's fly high where birds cant soar,
We'll share this journey to the core.





SCULPTURED NAILS
(c) 2015 Kimberly D Miller

Now and then I lose my way,
But from you I'd never stray,

From love has grown a budding trust,
Stay with me now, lost in our lust,

Bewildered, clumsy, often loud,
I'm many things, but always proud,

A crooked road, it's life's own path,
No ire, anger, rage or wrath,

Hand in hand our sculptured nails,
Interlaced, we're setting sail,

Bare your soul, don't fear a fall,
Reveal yourself, we'll have it all.

YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE "FAIR"

Today, while having lunch with a very, very dear friend, and discussing the varietal aspects of life, we touched on the subjects of fairness and reality. We were in total agreement that there is no such thing as “fairness” in life...or the people in it treating you fairly...other than your own expectations. I could easily say that things in my own life aren't “fair” because I can't be with the woman I fell in love with and very much want to spend the rest of my life with. Do I wish that I could? Do I wish that things could be different? Do I wish that she would fight for us to be together and fall in love with me again? Absolutely because I have never been able to get her out of my heart and therefore my mind, but am I willing to stop living and give up on my dreams and my integrity because life isn't “fair?” Absolutely not. There are things you cannot change and there are things you can. Your focus and your energy should be used wisely to change the thi

HAUNTINGS IN COOS COUNTY, OREGON...

I love "ghost" tracking and one of the things I liked best about going to Bisbee, Arizona, was the ghostly legends and original architecture.  Well, I am happy to report that I have found that here in my new digs as well, in Coos County, Oregon.  The following article was submitted on another website by a local reporter...I can't wait to check these places out: Spooky Legends and Haunted Locations By Mike Chavez As I have come to find out, Coos County has a few legends that provide some chilling scenarios for the curious. Here are a few more presumed haunted locations in Coos County. Explore if you dare. McAuley Hospital, Coos Bay Built in 1925, this was originally the Wesley Methodist Hospital. Years later, it was acquired by the Sisters of Mercy and renamed The McAuley Hospital. In 1982, it was remodeled to begin a new life as the Ken Keyes College. Since then, it has changed hands several times and has been vacant at times. People who have visited this

SOULEMETRY...

Soulemetry...an odd, yet accurately, amazing word.  What is Soulemetry?  Urban Dictionary.com describes it as follows: "Soulemetry is when fate brings two completely diverse people together (straight or gay) and they throw out all they know about love and they fall in love with each other ."  I first encountered this concept in my favorite, straight-woman-turns-lesbian movie entitled, "Elena Undone."  I was also fortunate enough to meet and have a brief love affair with my split-apart for a time... a beautiful and amazingly blessed time.  This movie was my life...with her.  I love her to this day and I wish we could be with one another, but alas it must not have been meant to be...but I digress. How amazing would it be to stumble upon the one person in this life or any other, who completes you...right here and right now? Who understands and accepts every aspect of who you are?Indescribable.  Soulemetry is the realization that the person you WANT to be with is
