Cj Heck Poems

Give me a poet for a lover
whose words stroke me like velvet hands.
Word-tender caresses more reaching
than the caress of a mere mortal man.

Go in through the eyes of a poet
deep into her alphabet mind.
Ideas like flotsam and jetsam
dodge poetry fragments and lines.

Night-night moon
Night-night stars
Night-night noisy
trucks and cars.

As a friend, I had come to help
yet one more time
and I watched as she set
the cardboard box on the floor.

There was a man I knew
and just knowing him
made me think of poetry.

I dreamed I grew a money tree
outside in my yard.
My job was to care for it
and I worked very hard.

Life is full of crossroads,
the hard lefts or rights,
and little pathways
of curves, this way or that.

On warm dark nights I think I see
beneath the weeping willow tree,
the fairies dancing in the grass
on tiny feet that fly so fast.

Oh Mama look, a flutterby.
(her tiny hand held it out to me) .
She grasped it firmly in her fist,
afraid to set it free.

There's an angel in my pocket
who is watching over me,
just a little voice down deep inside
that I can hear, not see.

Today I found a can of paint.
The paintbrush was there, too.
Mommy must have left it
when her painting was all through.

I offered my heart
in the palm of my hand,
a burning nova
to a private world

I remember many things
about those days and you.

I remember staring into brown eyes

I talked to Grammy yesterday
about a girl I know.
Her skin’s a different color
but I like her, even though

I love teeny tiny ants
and itchy bitsy fleas,
spiders, big and little,
and grouchy grumble bees,

memories are like
a child’s jack-in-the-box,
bound to pop up
when we least expect them

Daddy left his boots for me
and here I have to stay
‘cause Daddy is a soldier,
I’m in charge while he’s away.

Dear Mommy up in heaven,
you’re always in my mind.
I wish that you could tell me
why you left so much behind.

Treasures abound in an attic
if you're patient enough
to wade through
the spiders and dust to find them.

I’m just going to sit here.
I won’t say a word.
I’ll be like the children
who are seen and not heard.

The Best Poem Of Cj Heck

A Poet For A Lover (Adult)

Give me a poet for a lover
whose words stroke me like velvet hands.
Word-tender caresses more reaching
than the caress of a mere mortal man.

A poet's light touch is so gentle.
Word-fingers probe deep every time,
arousing me, haunting me, wetting me,
seducing me, body and mind.

Oh Lord,
give me a poet for a lover.
Lust and fire burn in his heart.
A silver-tongued devil whose words make me ache
to be on my knees in the dark.

Word-foreplay making me want him,
only mind-loved, I want to be free
to feel just one time, my poet inside,
where only mind-lust up to now has loved me.

Hi. I love your poetry (don't know how much that's got to do with the fact that you write in much the same style as I do!) ..'Dancing with Fairies' is great, quite simple and short, but fun to read and recite and very picturesque. Do you mind if I copy some of your poems on to a UK forum that I use? We don't go in for 'heavy' stuff, but enjoyable easy-reading (IDF50, poetry corner) . Please keep writing!
