Was The Tryst Forgotten?

Poem By Salvie Rosales

I
I waited, Love. All Nature waited, too;
The dust of air for flower-scent and song,
The sky for moonlight and the earth for dew-
All lingered, looking to their love. Ere long,
The flowers wakened; in another while,
Moon came to kiss the bosom of the sky,
Dew lent to leaves the glimmer of a smile,
And all were happy in their hearts, but I-
Till I beheld how every blossom soon
Languorous drooped with satiate desire,
And witnessed, too, the waning of the moon,
The slow sad failing of its amorous fire.
Then was I glad my joy has been delayed
Since risen late it must the later fade.

II
Upon the grasses weary were my feet,
Weary my eyes with peering in the dark.
But O my heart anticipating sweet
Sweet joy lay singing lightly as a lark.
And, Love, I fretted having but a pair
Of eyes and arms and lips to greet you by,
Wished for a clustering of hearts to share
Felicities foreseen as drawing nigh.
But when you came not and the night was fleeted,
O solace sweet it offered me to own
Only two lips and eyes to feel defeated,
To meet the emptiness two arms alone,
Only one heart to feel beneath the pain-
To faint, to die, by disillusion slain!

The Other Woman

My heart new only hate for you at first,
Seeking your laughter priced at my pain,
The sating of your spirit at my thirst,
Sun of your heavens, at my heaven’s rain.

My Moment Of Passion Is With A Friend

I
My moment of passion so easily shared
Great happiness that can never be compared.
So many have tried such feelings to spare

Music In Lyrics

I must remind you evening fast is fleeting
And like the shadows you shall soon depart.
Translate then into words your pulse beating,
I shall hold silence while you speak your part.

The Code Of A Blind

If only the Code within these lands
Allowed all impulse to govern the heart,
We should not feel this fever if the hands
To leap the gap that keeps us so, apart;

Love Rules Our Life

It makes you cry and laugh
It makes you ill and well
It makes you hot and cools you down
It makes you feel bad and good

Cyber Love

I can feel you but you’re far away
You shadow in my dreams as I lay.
I breathe the air, my heart would beat
You’d whisper in my ears in loving heat.
