I KISSED A CLOUD TODAY

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

i kissed a cloud today
a thousand feet high
visited london and bombay
flying through the sky
i played a game of croquet
on the irish sea
learned to ski and crochet
and was pope tom three
i kissed an angel to day
so what is  "reality" ?
i am in love to stay
just my angel and me.

A LOVE I HAVE NEVER KNOWN

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

i  have been in love before
always wanted to see her
to be close to her and
to hear her voice.
but i have never needed
to be with anyone
as i need to be with you,
as i need to hold you
and as i need to kiss your lips.
and i have never known a love
that needed me as you do..
nor one that shows her love
in the ways that you do.
what has become of us,
that we are so consumed
with each other?
i have never known love
could be so intense
so passionate, and
so beautiful,
i seem to be in a dream world
and i love it here.
and i love you so very very much.

TIRED, HUNGRY AND HARD

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

I woke up
from a night
of deep sleep
i find myself
tired, hungry
and hard
tired of nights
without you
in my arms
hungry for
the taste of
your lips
and hard
with desire
for you.

SOMEDAY

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

someday, i will take you away.
just you and i,
we'll walk hand in hand
along the shore.
we will eat in public and
take bubble baths
in private.
and give each other rubs.
we shall explore
and taste and caress
and fall asleep
in each others arms.
morning will find us
wrapped in the sheets
holding each other tightly
and ready for another day

WISH THERE WERE SOMETHING

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

when i see you troubled
i wish there were something
that i could do
to make the pain go away
i try to console,
with a selfish slant
to comfort and hold,
as you fend me off.
i seem to make matters worse
and increase
the inner struggle.
not much help, to be sure
i wish that i knew
what to say
or what to do
to be of some use.
I really do mean well
even though i have
a vested interest
i try not to pull
i try to be sensitive
to your needs.
God, i wish i knew
what to do.

LOVING YOU

my darling, my sweet
my breath of life
my angel of desire
my future wife
your thoughtful memo,
so close to my heart
your hungry kisses
a real good start
your tender stroke
upon my hand
make me the happiest
in the land.
our bodies pressed
hard together
my darling angel,
I'll love you forever.

A SUNDAY IN EL CAJON

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

A beautiful sunday
parked in the shade;
with you in my arms
and me in yours
the touches and caresses,
kisses and squeezes
the whispers and sighs
the "i love you's" and "so do i's"
exploring new territory
touching new skin
whispering desires of
secrets within
of a desire to finally
bury my face
within your
well guarded place
of my need to finally
carry you away
and lay you in my bed
... forever
to while away the sundays
loving and caring
for you for the rest
of my days on earth.

MEMORIES OF TOMORROW

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

You have taken over
my every thought
and my
every deed
i think of you
with every
breath i take
(and I do it often)
i close my eyes
and see your face
and taste your lips
as oft before
I feel your skin,
smooth and cool
pressed against me;
memories of tomorrow

THE SOUND OF RAINBOwS

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

morning dew
upon memories
of dreams yet
to come
the sound of
rainbows
playing tunes
of our love
beads of sweat
standing by
for love yet
to be made

A WAKE UP CALL

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

 The phone rings
and pulls me
from the deep
unconsciousness
 your whisper
in my ear
arouses me
like no other
if only you were
here beside me
to hold me...
to kiss me awake
to lay your loving
hands on me
and make me shudder
as your lips touch me.kissing my chest;
naked bodies pressed against one another...
it seems so real, so right.

A RIPPLE ON THE POND

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

a ripple on the pond
a feather in the wind;
a bird's chirp in my ear
the beauty of nature
the sound of your voice
the lines of your smile
the softness of your skin
ah, the beauty of you
the sparkle in your eye
the fire in your heart
nature's finest work
is in your every breath

AN ANGEL IN AND A LEPRECHAUN

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

An angel in black
with a smile so warm
her hair so black
and skin so sweet
Heart of gold
and a mind like a razor,
a fire burns
deep within
a free spirit
that's been too long unfree
wanting to live and love
to be who she was meant to be
with you by my side,
we'll live forever
leprechaun and an angel
we'll be forever happy

EARLIEST MEMORIES

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

My earliest memories
of loving you
dance thru my mind
and i love you more
i loved you dear
long before i was aware
and i love you now
more than i dare
a love from nowhere
has continuously grown
into a love greater than
anything i've known
my passion for you
helps me write rhyme
and makes me want to be
with you all the time
i want you to know
how happy i'll be
if only you
will marry me.

HEARTS AND FLOWERS

by Thomas Patrick O'Halloran

Hearts and flowers
dazzling eyes
magical powers
heavenly skies
soft, smooth skin
asleep in my arms
the wonders within
all the many charm
a hundred years, i'd wait
to have your love
i'd follow you state to state
it's destined from above
as i wait for your call
my life is on hold
as you have become my all
on you i've been sold
when we're apart, i pine
tho' when we're together
everything is fine
as it will be forever
Daisy dear marry me
'twas meant to be
and i assure thee
you'll live happily
