Guardian Angel – A Poem


Sweet nothings whispered in my ear

make me long for more of your words to hear

this night.

 

Beating hearts, mingling divine.

Spirits stirring; sip my wine

in weakness.

 

Clinging to your hope and desire.

Feeding the ever-surging heat of fire

within me.

 

Passion takes on lover’s feign

creating worries, wondering what it is you mean

with your thoughts.

 

Shadows cast from sunlight’s beams,

darkness engulfing, unsteadying dreams

ensue.

 

But you are there, in the shadows – no light,

to snag me back from my mind’s might

so unwillingly.

 

And the worries begin to fade…

 

 


My heart beats, but I am lost
and I cannot find my home.
I search the lands far and wide,
but all I find is my tomb,
Inside…

Love Not Lost – A Poem


Dead leaves on the eve of fall,

wolves howl and the wind calls

of their forlorn love.

 

Separated by forgotten reasons,

both sit and watch the changing seasons

blurring around them.

 

Wishes granted, but none on time,

always stuck in a rhythm or a rhyme

of sorry, not yet.

 

Unsure of their love’s fate,

continuously forced to sit and wait

for answers that never seem to come.

 

Both unhappy, unfulfilled, aching,

for the only touch to mend their breaking

unstable, wanting hearts.

 

Someday soon, will answers arrive

so both no longer remain deprived

able to move forward

 

One step at a time…?

Passing Time – A Poem


I remember the lazy time passing us by

Watching the days, oh how they fly

Wishing for minutes, but they go awry

Now, there’s never enough.

 

I move so fast along the way

Watching my hairs, oh how they grey

Wishing for peace, but lead far astray

Now, there’s so much stuff.

 

I close my eyes, and stop to breathe

Watching my thoughts, oh how they seethe

Wishing for moments, wanting to wreathe

Now, there’s only tough.

 

 

Lingering – A Poem


 

I can taste the linger of your sweet kiss

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

I can smell the linger of your sweet scent

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

I can feel the linger of your sweet touch

when I keep my eyes closed long enough.

 

But, my time is too short, and I must open my eyes

only to find you not with me.

 

But, the lingering fades too quickly, and I must resume my day

even without you there with me.

 

But, the minutes pass too slowly, and I must distract my thoughts

because you’re not there with me.

 

And my day trudges on…

And the hours pass me by…

 

But, I know for sure that my thoughts ever return to

my closed eyes where you linger in my mind,

only to have my heart melt at the memory of…

 

I can feel the linger of your sweet kiss

when I keep my eyes closed long enough…

 

Don’t Wait – A Poem


Have you ever thought you knew what you wanted,

basked in success until you realized you’re stunted,

left yourself feeling worthless and daunted,

only to feel like prey?

 

Have you ever pretended that all was fine,

watched your life slowly decline,

waited for answers, preferably divine,

only to fall halfway?

 

Have you ever wondered what you were doing,

spent your nights lost and stewing,

created emotions that wouldn’t stop brewing,

only to walk away?

 

Have you ever written the lyrics to set you free,

cringed until you heard the next was in key,

waited to see them slowly agree,

feeling your tears start to dry?

 

Have you ever walked into the light of chance,

wished on a star seen only at first glance,

allowed your heart to sing loudly and dance,

feeling your world start to comply?

 

Have you ever accepted that you’re on the right track,

jumped over the ditch and didn’t look back,

knowing deep down you would never again lack,

feeling your soul start to fly?

 

Before life completely passed you by…?

 

A Raging Fire – A Poem


Small, unaccompanied, flickering in

the darkness, my light creating

the shadow of loneliness never to be seen

by anyone not bothering to look.

 

I licked the wind

blowing gently, igniting me further

but short of the motivation needed to be withdrawn

from the inner hopelessness resisting change.

 

A rain begins to saturate and

my flames retract, my embers below still glowing

red in the night sky, as I sit and wait

crackling fiercely but doused in solitude.

 

A heat fills in around me

beginning to rekindle the lost passion

for life as my flames begin to surge forward

from the hot coals I’ve held so dear.

 

I look around to see

this kindred fire engulfed in their own flame

blazing their way toward my weakened state

of permeating heartache and despair.

 

I welcome the breath

of freshness, allowing their sweet incandescence

to illuminate my own powerful soul

full of remembrance and being.

 

Together, swiftly devouring

the dark void within and without of our lives

melting into one scorching future journey

destined for eternal warmth.

 

A raging fire develops,

never to be stopped by dullness or apathy

searing any path of resistance trying to

drown the greatness of love’s humility.

 

 

You’re Mine – A Poem


You’re sweet; you can heal

my emotions, cold and unreal,

warming up with each passing day.

 

You’re amazing; you can steal

my smiles, no big deal

as you smirk and glance my way.

 

You’re hot; you can feel

my body, all so real

as I long for our next, time to stay.

 

You’re mine; you can heel

and before me, you kneel

at my feet as I insist you obey.

 

You’re falling; you can’t conceal

the love, between us ideal,

for each other, we’d never betray.

 

 

Have You Seen Her? – A Poem


Have you seen her?

Beaten down.

Bruised.

 

Have you wanted her?

Sacred soul.

Abandoned.

 

Have you felt her?

Held back.

Withdrawn.

 

Have you touched her?

Like death.

Cold.

 

Have you tasted her?

Salty tears.

Sadness.

 

Have you held her anyway?

Giving hope.

Spirit.

 

Have you desired her anyway?

Warming up.

Rekindled.

 

Have you accepted her anyway?

Brightened day.

Together.

 

Have you loved her anyway?

Forever bonded.

Secure.

 

 

 

 

Now? – A Poem


You arrived, and I couldn’t

help but notice your heartfelt eyes penetrating

their way into my world.

 

How did you look at me

with such radiance and overlook the

glaring obviousness of my flaws?

 

I showed up too late to

make it meaningful as you stood before me

taken, in your warmth.

 

But my hand reached anyway, hoping

to receive the same as my vulnerability

screamed from my being.

 

You took it.

 

We kissed.

 

I fell into the void known by so few

lucky ones in our revolving world of chaos

during the shortness of our life.

 

We danced and sang, weaving our

fates into one direction, both enticing the other

to go a little further, farther.

 

I hid my ever-reddening face with

smiles growing fonder, eyes looking deeper

into our unforeseen future of love.

 

I held my breath, waiting in suspense

as I felt you open your life into mine, both wanting more

than either could realize until now.

 

My hand still in yours.

 

Forever and always.

 

Now…?
