A Pirate's Love Eons Ago

Memories so Sweetly Mine

Night after night---I sit alone upon my

rock over-looking the furious

sapphire sea,

And I swear at it for taking you

from me.

A Pirate of your massive ship

so brave and true,

A ship built to sail the seven

seas, upon the violet waters

of crystal blue.

Our life never normal to be, as you

sailed and I waited,

Many treasures accumulated

from your secret journey,

which I hated.

We made sweet love on our bed

of pearls, gems, golden coins,

Scroll to Continue

and diamonds galore,

My Sweet man it was not the

treasures I desired but of only

of you ---I wanted more.

Your strong hands gently held my

head as your thumbs rubbed my

cheeks, because you love the feel of

silkiness there,

Those sweet full lips conquered, demanded

and left mine red and swollen---and

I did not care.

You kissed my lips, my hair, my ears

and neck,

You left my mind a total wreck.

Those strong tanned arms bulged

with muscles enfolded my body---to

make me secure,

Your lips that left no inch of me

untouched, but passionately kissed

was what my body craved---

to forever endure.

My Rock

My Rock


And just when I thought I could stand

no more,

You whispered, “My Darling", My Angel

it is you I adore.”

Then to Heaven our lovemaking took us

on a journey to touch the stars---in

younder space,

Completely---sated back to our

love bed---in our special place.

With your body enwrapping mine we would fall

into a blessed sleep so divine,

Until you moved in the early dawn, still

sleepy you whispered, “Always be mine.”

When fully awaken and alone,

You and your ship were gone.

It was the year of 1681 when the worst

hurricane in the Caribbean,

The wicked storm took you, your crew

and ship to the bottom of the ocean---far,

far away from me.

On stormy nights when enraged waters white capped and

pummeled against the rocks while lightning snaps displaying

veins of flashing lights across the night after the thunder roars,

I can hear your voice telling me---I am here---Darling, waiting, in

the sea outside your doors.

So many nights I cried and swore at the sea,

If tears could bring you back---you would be

with me.

Your handsome face is branded in my memories of

my mind and heart,

Forever now--- I wait to see the love shine in your

brown eyes as you look down on me---never to

be apart.

Divine it would be,

Pirate Lover of mine and me.

Pirate Lover of Mine Came Back for Me

The dark shadows danced as the storm rode in,

The howling winds called to me---loneness is a sin.

What madness has jumped upon my mind?

As I hear the echo of a voice from another time.

My Darling I am here waiting in our bed,

Oh, truly I must really be dead.

I went to my bedroom in doubt,

I would surely end up with a pout.

But there he was as handsome and young as can be,

I said but I am old now—why would you want me.

I love you my Darling as you are young too,

And my reflection told me it was true.

We both left this world floating to his ship,

He rubbed his thumb on my cheek and over my bottom lip.

Then he kissed me until I could think no more,

And he closed the Captain’s door.

Together we will forever be,

Just with the ship’s crew to sail upon the azure sea.

My Pirate Lover and me.

Thank you for your visit and your kind comment. I like to write my poems in story form for HubPages, as it tells a story but is not too long as a short story.

Where would we be without our unique imagination?

Johnny Depp MAN! You gotta read this piece from our Bobbi. 1681, the year that Caribbean seas saw love like this. You took us back in time and felt as though we were there, kicking sands and emotions to be shared! lovely poem and your taste is unique! Corsaries, buccaneers, get ready for the last assault!

Bobbi you unleashed the passion in your soul with this exotic piece of you and your lover from the seas. You entwined your emotions and love as one. I could feel the heat from the both of you and hear your hearts beating strong. Passion is such a beautiful feeling no matter where it's found on land, air or sea. I loved each word you scribed my poet. Voted UP awesome and beautiful.
