A Victory Song

Life lessons to learn from or learn about

Whispers and screams, sound in my dreams, My tears get stuck in my throat. I reach out my hand, clutching quicksand, While he sits and laughs as he gloats. And most never know, though they know me so. They feel that my life must be grand. But it’s only because I, live a talented lie, Pretty smiles, laughs and grins on demand. When I was young, I thought he’d become, The person I...Read On


My Anger, My Calm

It is he who understand my anger that gets my calm...

Challenged what was my norm, I bared my teeth, and I was ready to strike. This has worked for me over the years. I stomp off, and find solitude, this pushed of many, and they disappear, and me back in my comfort unchallenged. I have become a pro at this. so much that no one recognizes it, but You did. A subtle word, a touch of sarcasm. I hide who I really am to anyone near, and that...Read On


Morning Star

I am your morning star For you I shine day and night Not quite so fair as many are I promise you my plight My smile will shine as your beacon To guide you when you become lost I make you sweat and your knees weaken I will protect your heart at any cost Look into my eyes and see yourself A scarred soul still worthy and good Never one to be placed on a shelf ...Read On


Wind beneath my wings

his surly bounds

Your blue eyes were my compass Your breath the wind beneath my wings Your words were my fuel as I touch the edge Going alone wasn’t possible To see the hand of God I needed you As I reached His surly bounds I had to return During my next and final approach It will be your blue eyes that guide me to touch His face You are my hands of God Your words my winds of heaven ...Read On



It really does feel this way

It suddenly occurred to me I’m feeling a cliché What else can possibly explain Perceiving things this way? My arms are arms, and end in hands Not wings of gossamer I walk on ground and do not float Like lepidoptera My heart, it beats I hear it thump But seems to me it sings Surely that’s a neighbor’s music Carried on the wind? The tingles on my body Could the cause be that I’ve wandered...Read On


Wings Of A Robin

It seems I came under a glitch, I lost tempo in my writs like a spell I could not tell, as shadows fell on a robin's breast  the words I need to sow, in my lovers basket. And now the straw that snapped my back, cannot mend my sins, I harken to you. So give me moment to digest as I lay my last rest, in the fields of Oswego on the wings of a robin I confess, ...Read On


Naked Under Your Eyes

To know he knows me even with his eyes closed

Sitting with the blanket at her feet, a cup of cocoa, and a book in her hands. She lies just under the facade of proper. You know the girl I mean… A smile so sweet, it melts you. A word stronger than most. Yes she is the one. The one that craves direction, needs control like the air she breathes. To all she is a rock, and a totem, to you she exudes submissiveness from her pores like...Read On


May I Borrow Your Hand?

May I borrow your hand? To wipe the tear from my cheek When I feel vulnerable and weak May I borrow your hand? To feel all the love you have within It’s a wonderful feeling skin on skin May I borrow your hand? To touch me in a sensual way Please don’t ever back away May I borrow your hand? To make me feel complete I want to tingle down to my feet May I borrow your hand? Is that too much...Read On


Shell Game

Now you see it . . .

She stands before you So sincere Her heart is on display Cradled in her outstretched hands Held so tenderly You melt to see her standing there You want so to believe And to accept her offering Your hands begin to reach And as you do she pulls away Saying, "you must play the game" And takes you to a table Where sit three shells, all the same She sets one shell atop her heart And...Read On


Land Of Caribou

Missing my eternal sleep, by the touch of a halo  and swallowing my pride, by turning over a leaf in the land of caribou. With the nib of my pen and scribbling new threads, becoming sentimental on falling snow. For whom the heavens shine, romantically incline, sweet kisses and wine, and cuddling my woo. Beneath the midnight sun  in the land of caribou, with dreams...Read On


Love Is

Love is special.

Love is that comfortable understanding between two people that conveys with just a look. Love is that allure even after years of being together that still says, "I want you." Love is the peace felt that surrounds a couple as they endure hardships together in faith. Love is the feeling passed between two people by the simple touch on the other's arm. Love is the emptiness felt...Read On


Still There

You’re in my every thought You’re in my every dream You live in my heart Why won't you leave? You’re like a nasty cobweb Clinging to every part of me You’re not welcome here any more Yet you’re in every poem or story I read Why won't you go away? You are always haunting me We were so in love Yes, you said you loved me And I loved you We planned a life together You said you would never leave...Read On


Our Secret Love

nothing stops the burning flames

Born in passion and deception We continued the burning flame Without caring what others wanted The heat was like flames from hell We danced the fires of Satan We stoked the burning embers Not caring of others feelings Our love was not giving up Together we still laugh and dance As the Devil continues to play his songs....Read On


Broken Soul

Lovely melody you sang to me.

When the breeze ruffles my hair, and my tears are mistaken for the rain; My eyes, empty sockets filled with despair. A love poem for the dead upon a gravestone. A petrified inscription which did not reach, Emerald eyes, which kidnapped my peace, For the pale moonlight and the dead see. The proximity of your perfume steals my breath Demons shine and grow, ectoplasm of a ghost ...Read On



I am more than just words  Pulsating across your computer screen. I am more than your eyes can see and  That your heart can blindly feel, I am not invisible. I can touch your heart like an arrow hitting a bullseye with one try. I am a woman who no longer cries  For those leaving without a goodbye, For I am worth more than my weight in gold. I am a book of pages read by those closest...Read On



Grazed by your eyes As though you have touched me Watching your lips While words emerge softly Speaking to me Telling me more I just want to stay here Letting them pour Silken, like scarves That trail through my mind They calm, yet excite As I try to slow time And prolong this night To capture its passing As cel by cel I live it while watching So keenly conscious Of each matchless...Read On


Alone in my Thoughts

All I can ask is why?

You told me you loved me, but it wasn’t so You told me you loved me, and you would never go My tears are like rain that falls from the sky You left me wondering because you never said good bye You were my everything, my mentor, my friend And I thought you’d be with me forever, and that it would not end But you left me wondering, what did I do? I was guilty of nothing ...Read On


Hungry For Love

Feel the Emotion Crave the Passion Hunger for Lust Lack compassion Hearts beating Skin on skin Breathing escalates Deep within Sweat beads form Flesh penetrating flesh Pulse rate increases Two bodies mesh Rocking back and forth Moving as one Hearts beating faster Behavior wanton Sudden urgency Loud moans Volcanic eruption Animalistic groans ...Read On


reflections of love

We are never complete without love.

I see you everywhere And in everything I do Your love and devotion Comes shining through When I look in the lake All I see is your smiling face Your eyes captivate me In a seductive embrace Sweet words of love Echo in my ear My heart beats faster I can feel you near Your breath is intoxicating Your arms are around my waist Our hearts beat in one rhythm ...Read On


She Waits

Her need for love overpowers her hurt.

She cries, thinking back to the time of love forever lost. Just wanting simple affection, but what will be the cost? She feels her loneliness and pain will cause her heart to break. She does not want empty words now, and cannot handle fake. She just wants to be accepted, not used, then thrown away; she wants someone to come home to, each night and every day. She wants to learn...Read On


Love Story

Every Love has a story....

Let me paint you a picture In just a few words Letting my ideas flow Free to be heard My thoughts placed across your heart So that you will always know How very deeply I love you so Tiny whispers of silk Across your skin As I trace the marks Placed by my pen Each stroke becomes a letter Each letter a word The words form our story So ‘twill always be heard A love for...Read On


Just Leave

Don’t let the door hit you on the ass Watch out you don’t slip on the dew covered grass Our time together has come to an unfortunate end There are too many fences that will never mend I guess forever isn’t as long as it used to be I sensed the feeling that you needed to be free Just leave There’s no sense in saying goodbye No one can say we didn’t give it a try Remember...Read On


leaves of love

On every road of life leaves must fall.

I see you in all our places and see you in everything I do I can still smell the fragrance of your freshly washed hair I can still see your perfect smile and your eyes so blue I take walks along the sand of our favorite beach The special place where we first made love I reach for you but you are always out of my reach I see you at our restaurant waiting in our booth I run...Read On



This is why I love him.

Dearest I love you! Not because you are big and strong, nor because you are very smart. Not because with you I belong, or because you give me your heart. Not because you are meek and mild, nor because you want all for us. Not because you can be so wild, or because you just never fuss. Not because you're caring and kind, nor because you know how to live. Not cause your the best I will find,...Read On



I thought you were my knight Your armor shone so bright But it blinded me from the light I felt warm and secure in your arms You were my good luck charms That no one and nothing harms There was always magic in your kiss I was in complete and total bliss Now I’m in a first class abyss We had made so many plans Now we argue over pots and pans The promises run...Read On



To say I don't care Is to say I don't think To say I don't love Is to say I don't breathe My silence is for the hurt my words might cause My absence is for the ones my actions may hurt My thoughts are never selfish I put myself last, self-preservation is irrelevant "What will make you happy?" I ask. Will my words make you sad? I keep them inside. Will my words make...Read On


Two Cubes Will Do

It wasn't willy-nilly, our love we confessed And listened to birds caroling the eve of our wed. I believe in prayers of golden rings, Of sixty years the short time wed, And the knitting yarn you wore with charms... Jack and Jill chimes. Hey barkeep! One more please. I believe in rainbows with stairs and banisters to hold on to, rocking chairs with chariot wings  and silly little...Read On


The Kiss

Weeks of torment... quieted by a kiss.

Moons ago we met, friendship, cordiality, and smiles were shared. Anticipated moments, weeks of longing gazes and tender conversation. Walking under the moonlight, a cool night this spring, he finally kissed me. Finally crossing the boundary of being simply friends, the torment subdued. A hand at the small of my back, shivers sent up my spine, our lips, oh so close... I feel your...Read On


Love Is...

Definition of Love in free verse style.

Love is taking you in my arms and feeling your heartbeat. Love is looking into your eyes and seeing only me. Love is knowing the trust we have together. Love is watching you apart from me yet seeing us as one. Love is holding hands and not having to talk. Love is taking on life together and still laughing. Love is not about sex... but that's gravy. Love is comfortable... you...Read On


Blue Hearts

In better times I bought two hearts Both were lapis blue One I set in my glass case The other, gave to you I thought it sweet We each had hearts And they were both the same Though yours went in a little drawer With papers and loose change The drawer was in a wooden stand In your entryway And where you placed your front door key The end of every day When you died I took the heart To have...Read On
