My Everything

My Everything

by Hugh A Tague

When I thought that my life might not be worth living;
You gave me hope.
When I thought that I had forgotten who I was;
You reminded me.
When I thought that I would never know true love’s kiss;
You kissed me.
When I thought that I would never know passion’s sweet touch;
You touched me.
When I thought true love did not exist;
You gave me your heart.
When I thought that I had nothing;
You became my everything.

My Everything

Ode to the wind

Tamara de Lempicka

Ode to the wind 

 by Hugh A Tague

My Love,

Our bodies dance together,
setting the universe aglow.
Kissing under the stars
sipping a fine merlot.

Your free loving spirit
feeds my hungry soul.
Because of your kindness,
as a man I have grown.

Love of my life,
my choice, this I know.
Once, you chose me,
no longer was I alone.

Still the wind is wild,
a force I can‘t control.
I love you far too much,
not to let you go.

If I live a thousand years
my memory won’t forgo,
throwing my heart to the wind
allowing my love to flow.

Forever yours my darling.

Romeo and Juliet
by Hugh A Tague

Unrest fills the cobblestone of Verona
Feuding nobles Capulet and Montague
The Prince decrees peace or death by his corona
A punishment that assured none shall argue.

Juliet’s young hand promised to Paris
Romeo’s heart rejected by Rosaline
The masquerade feast hid not Juliet’s Clarisse
Instantly Romeo knew for her heart he will pine.

To each other their names still unknown
That very night their lips lovingly met
This powerful new love most will not condone
For he is a Montague and she a Capulet.

From the garden wall Romeo professed his love
Unable to leave that night without doing so
Juliet accepted his heart from yonder window above
despite their families’ distaine they soon shall know.

Thinking an age-old feud may come to an end
Friar Lawrence secretly wed the two
That night together the lovers did spend
Juliet’s nurse with a ladder gave them a honeymoon.

Mercutio and Tybalt the next day died by the sword
Romeo was banished for the part he played
Having killed their kinsman this Juliet must ignore
Her love for her husband she could not betray.

Destined to marry Paris her father still in the dark
Juliet and Friar Lawrence hatch an elaborate plan
Romeo knows nothing as Friar John fails to embark
A life without Juliet, Romeo could not stand.

Romeo killed himself but first took Paris out
Juliet woke and fall on upon a dagger brave
The Capulets and the Montagues their pain devout
To this day statues of gold stand upon the grave

What to Say

Maya-Angelou

What to Say
by Hugh A Tague

What to say
about one whose words
have touched so many,
words not just read
and spoke out loud,
but are felt
by all they fall upon.
Words that inspired so many
to read, to write
and to see.

What to say
about one who has
not just bared witness,
but engaged in life
with a limitless vigor
few will ever know,
but for a read of our Lady Maya.

What to say
about one’s whose sight
has touched minds of
school-aged children,
as well as the minds of
men and women;
who shoulder
the weight of the world.

Four score and six years;
five of those fell silent,
for none knew better
the power of words
than she.

Perhaps all the words
that could be spoke,
or wrote,
about this great poetess
have been just that.
For even a man of words
such as myself,
I can think of but two….
Thank You.

Time With My Girl

by  Hugh A Tague

Your eyes twinkle with a love just for me
My skin crawls with my souls deep desire
A love so pure that no one else can see
Passion so great, my heart burns like fire.

Our bodies fit together in every way
Your angel face just barely touching mine
As if molded from the same piece of clay
I forget all else losing track time.

Your soft and tender skin I do so miss
Oh how your gentle touch drives me insane
Your perfect lips and a sweet loving kiss
Our love is special and can’t be explained.

When together all is right in the world.
Nothing is better than time with my girl.
