Guest Poet Spotlight: D.L. Owens

Hi, readers! Now and then on the I Love Romance Blog, I recognize poets and their wonderful, romantic poems. Today D.L. Owens has stopped by to showcase some of her work for us.

I love poetry, almost as much as I love romance! It is music for my eyes, and a song in my heart. 🙂

four hearts

Poems by D.L. Owens

poet

Remind Me Again

Remind me again of how it use to be

When innocence was like being free

When laughter was sincere

When one could speak with no fear

Remind me again when a friend was a friend

When a sin was a sin

When holding hands meant a lot

When a hug hit the spot

Remind me when love was love

When long lasting emotions rose above

When kissing was something we missed

When talking was as soothing as a kiss

follow

Passions Following Me

So how does the journey began

With a stare, a hug, a kiss

Will the rainfall frame our passion

Or will passion frame love’s bliss

My lips stay ready

My eyes fixed on you

My body is sensing

You want me, too

Rendezvous to the woods

Far from others’ calls

Where obsession, caressing

Will live outside all walls

Love is in us, tracing us

Trying to find ways to connect

There is no lock, nor key

Just passion trying to unite you and me

passion

Passion Becoming Poetry

Do you desire to kiss these lips

Taste these lips

Do you long to hold my body in your arms

And let my passions inhale your charms

Love is flying high

And I am sprouting wings

Love is soaring through the sky

And making my passion sing

Heat is soaring low

Almost walking the streets

Melting love beneath guided feet

Warming the passion in our souls

Can you feel me trying to feel you

Can you hear my body talking to you

If yes is unanimous then come in, close the door

And let our love roar

marking

Marking the Heart

Looks are mostly deceiving

They are definitely appealing

Second looks worth stealing

But what is uncontrollably the binding

Is that everlasting feeling worth finding

The one that won’t ever leave you sighing

The sticker to the core of the hearts twining

The permanent glue that can never be pulled apart

The one that captures all of you from the very start

Leaving a stain, an embedded memory, a permanent mark

Just from lassoing your soul through the eyes of your heart

love

Love of My Life

he watched in remorse

as she walked away

her trailing fragrance

of Japanese honeysuckle

wrapping around his face

he was wishing his pride would die

so he would beg her to stay

instead of crying inside

he just watched her walk away

dreams

Dream Stalker

he’s in all my dreams

in all my life themes

i cannot inhale

enough of him

until his fingers

touched the long

of the back of my neck

soothing my heart

calming my breath

midnight

At Midnight

our bodies form deep shapes in the sand

he looks over, throws a kiss, takes my hand

wants to make love under the endless stars

while the blue milky sky ocean’s the dark

climbing waves wet soaks us, calms our heat

journeying us to retreat our rapid heartbeat

Poet Bio

fullsizerender_poet-picture

D.L. Owens began writing poetry at the age of eight. She would write on anything she could get her hands on: toilet paper, card stock sleeves from her mother’s nylons, paper bags from the market even the palm of her hands. This went on for a while until one day her mother realized this was not a phase. This prompted the purchase of a manual typewriter which quickly became her best friend. Years later, when D.L. (Lulu) became a proud mother of a beautiful daughter, she switched gears and wrote children’s stories and poetry.

Her poetry is comprised of the tempers surrounding her, from a baby crying for her mother’s touch to a couple smiling at each while holding hands. Her longer pieces vent from everything engrossed in her mind and from her dreams pouring into the pages like a love story. This “moody writer” writes poetry of all sauces with love and romance as a part of it. However, when it comes to short stories, novellas and longer pieces she finds herself locked in a mixture of sci-fi, mystery, fantasy mixed with a taste of romance.

Her addiction to writing and painting takes up much of her time when she’s not spending it with family and friends. Lately, she has been creating illustrations for the books written for her daughter. When she’s not doing this she loves to cook, make greeting cards and take pictures of the glorious nature.

Poems by Honcho Mars

Walking her home

She worked nights as a seamstress
Perhaps that’s how she knew
How to stitch back his heart
She mended with those caring hands
At that moment he felt safe
In his head he felt like he could love again
In his heart he knew he could
This began the journey of two lovers
So different but so much alike
She loved walks in the parks
Nights out at the movies
Dancing all night long
She adored dresses it made her feel like a princess
Searching for her long lost prince
Finally he was found
He to make her happy
He walked in the park with her
Went to the movies to be close to her
Danced the night away
He did all these things
Just to be near her
He did not care where they went
Just as long as she was next to him
He felt 10 feet tall when she walked with him
A beauty inside out
She captured his heart so many different moments
He could never compare them because
Each one made a different moment
He loved her madly
She loved like an angel
The spark showed when they kissed
Kids nearby thought it was the fourth of July
As they stroll side by side
They catch a glimpse of their future
As an elderly couple pass by laughing and holding hands
A simple nod between men
A smile between the women
As if they knew this will be them
In the years to come
He turns to her and says
I will love you till we are old and gray
She said I will love you more every day
Until we reach that point in life
First you have to make me your wife
Looking up at the stars shine above
She saw a glow as he was on one knee
Asking her for hand in marriage
She cried and yelled yes
At this moment the elderly couple looked back
To see this moment
They smile and kiss
They have lived this moment before
They are just here to walk out their journey
The way they started
Together

My Spanish Rose

I met you on a hot Texas day
Wiping away the sweat
Maybe it was the fear
Whatever it was
Brought us here
On this road
In this town
On this day
As we glance
Our souls dance
Into a breeze
A sign
Of the years to come
A love
Unknown
We flourish
As we grew
Older and wiser
Our love planted
That day
As we gave in
Surrendering
We are now captives
Held by a bound
I am yours
You are mine
My young
My beautiful
Forever
My Spanish rose

Wild Flower

Wild flower growing beautiful
Colors that broadcast
The perfect picture
For all to see
In a canvas
A rare flower
Growing amongst the weeds
So out of place
Yet your beauty
Stands out
For every eye to see
As they pass by
The scent in the air
Is a sweet aroma
That attracts me to you
A wild flower
In a perfect bloom
In this hour
For all to see
Standing tall
A perfect memory
Of this flower
Beautiful for all to see.

Filtering

Through this smoke filled room
Filtering out the idea
Of love at first sight
Standing as a statue
Frozen by fear
Through my eyes
I see you smiling
Guiding me to safe shores
As if you were a lighthouse
My beacon of hope
Could this be true
That I have fallen
Like an exiled angel
Casted to roam alone
Given a second chance
Did the days
Of being forsaken expire
The time is now
I must move
Before the hands of time
Countdown to the midnight hour
And this fairy tale ends
I slither like a snake
To you, my eve
Tempting you
Corrupting words
A stolen heart
Stole moment
By one look of your eye
My life as I knew
Was over
At the very minute
I pledged my heart
My soul
My everything
To walk by your side
Into morning horizon
We ride out the fading night
Embracing the sun’s glory
Rays of light
As you light up
As a darkened night
On the fourth of July
How beautiful
To marvel at the sight
As I knew
I fell for you
At first sight.

Everything

I didn’t love her
For the things
She said
I loved her
For everything
Her heart
Told me

Blog-Pic-Couple-Smiling-At-Each-Other-16732443

Undying love

She drove me into madness
A lonely wolf howling
At the new moon
I loved her
Like no other before
Pledging my commitment
Before hellfire desire
Sacrificing on the slab
The altar of my undying love

I Am

I am your shadow
That follows you
I am the stars at night
Jealous of your beauty
I am all things
The cool breeze
Gently touching your face
Rain on a summers day
The light you see
Waking up every morning
Heaven’s sunray
I am the beating of your heart
The painter
Painting a smile upon your face
The silent whisper
Whispering your name
I am love
The key opening
Your hidden secrets
The hand that wipes
Away your tears.
I am jealousy
I am envy
I am lust
Desiring a taste
From the forbidden fruit
I am you
I am me
I am beauty
I am vanity
Peace and hope
Life and death
A sunrise and sunset
I am the tracks
Of your tears.
I am the melting wax
The wick of a burning candle
The wind that snuffs
Out the flame
I am good
I am evil
I am the lost
I am the found
I am all things
Like your shadow
I will always be around.

Her name is

Her eyes shined like diamonds
In the morning sky
Her hair flows like a river
Overflowing from the seasons of rain
Her love she gave in abundance
My hands always remained stretched forward
Forever waiting for her love
Her voice rang throughout the valleys
Like the bells being rung
On a Sunday morning
Her hands touched every soul
Like a cool breeze
In summer’s death grip
Her name was never spoken
I knew her well
At night time
She came to me
Opening up my door
Her presence was always welcomed
I built a temple for her
Within my heart
She is love
How I love her so
Sitting around a fire
Singing songs
For her
My heart’s desire
A love that never will expire.

It is music for my eyes, and a song in my heart. 🙂

Poems by Honcho Mars

A TRUE BEAUTY

Your beauty blossoms like a flower in spring

A beauty unmatched

Which words can not speak?

A beauty when the leaves change colors

A beauty that my eyes desire

A beauty that my heart has dreamt

A true beauty

Untouched by men

Where a thief cannot steal

A beauty within

A beauty that does not fade away

On these knees I have prayed that such a beauty

Was real I have found that beauty

In you

The beauty of a love

Outlasting eternity

Just you and me.

man-kiss-girl-forehead

A Moonshine love

Under a moonlit night I held you tight

The glow of your eyes

Out shined the moons presence

If we must go our separate ways

If you wonder if I still care

Look up and see

That same moon

Casting a light

So bright

That is my love for you

Never feel blue I will always Love you

As the man on the man

Who let you go to soon?

The space between earth and the moon

I would walk

To be by your side

That is my place

Let us kiss

Upon a pale blue night

Out of this world

Our love takes flight

No need to fight

A beauty pure

My heart you have always had

From the very first sight

love-word-18235-hd-wallpapers

In bloom

The time is spring

3rd of April

Slight breeze

Fragrant of flowers in the air

Sun is shining

Birds in the sky

It is you to has caught my eye

The sparkle of your headband

Glows of gold and rare stones

Your hair you toss oh so gently

Moment of beauty

Taking my breathe away

The smile thrown in my direction

Reassures me of the love you give

So freely you give it to me

I approach counting every step

Till I closeout the distance between us

Our shadows greet each other

Our hands touch

Embraced as if they were in war

Leaning in our lips say hello

Sealing our love with a kiss

Setting off the firework show within

Our hearts beating the same song

Eyes never lose sight of each other

Closed by the veil of love

Opening to glace into our souls

Speaking the words

I love you

With all my heart and more

Our love is beautiful

BeexTTACIAAHzek

May her love

May her love and light

Grace the night sky

Mixing with the stars

Becoming a beacon of hope

In this life

Forever leading my broken heart

Through the days of beautiful suffering

A moment to boast

To say my love was with her

To say her heart I knew it well

My response

 

One night as we were lying under the stars

You asked me a question

How much do you love me?

I thought about it

My response was this

More than the stars in the sky

You then said

There are too many to count

I said my love cannot be counted

Then you asked me again

How much do you love me?

I asked can you swim to the bottom of the sea

You said no it is too deep

I said so is my love

You asked me once more

How much do you love me?

My response was this

My love for you grows

Like a flower watered by love

Like the love of summer’s rain on a hot day

The joy of waking each morning Next to you Is God’s gift to me

The fire of my passion for you

Is like a volcano erupting

Like firework on the fourth of July

I then looked into your eyes

I said not a word

For the answer you seek

Was revealed by the whisper of my soul

The beating of my heart

couple-silhouette-1600x900-1600x600

With one kiss

 

 With a gentle kiss upon my lips

The storm brewing within

Dissipated

With one look

I was yours

With a smile

I knew it was true

Love has finally found me

Down here where

The lonely reside

Happiness I shall not hide

Tears no longer drops of pain

As your hand touches my face

Brushing away the years

The years I cowered in fear

Lost in the darkness of uncertainty

Your love showing the way out

Out of misery

Into the land abundance

Sheltered by love

Enclosed in your embrace

With you by my side

I know that my days are filled

By the look in your eyes

I have read your soul

I know I am now finally complete.
