Where AM I? – A Poem


Grinding, kicking

Swimming in blue

Trying to find my way home to you.



Grasping, keeping

Surrendering to sough

Wanting to find my way back to you.



Gouging, knocking

Scraping in cue

Needing to find my return to you.



For with you, time stands still…





Asleep, as long as

you think you are not.


Forced, as long as

you think you are not.


Empty, as long as

you think you are not.


Distracted, for as long as

the choice is unseen.


Beaten , for as long as

the choice is unseen.


Forgotten, for as long as

the choice is unseen.


Wake, as fast as

you see the opportunity.


Show passion, as fast as

you see the opportunity.


Create, as fast as

you see the opportunity.


For your slumber is deep , but your rest is null.

For your impact is weak, and your legacy is null.

For your purpose is meek, and you sustainability is null…


…without love.




Love in Motion – A Poem

The feeling circles around in motion,

Swirling toward infinity, passing by the notion

That love forever sweeps us off our feet.


The feeling lingers around from start,

Dismissing nothing from a wounded heart

That love never tasted so sickingly sweet.


The feeling swishes around in waves,

Drowning out thought, until buried in graves

That love outlasts a worm’s treat.


The feeling…


That love…


Sweet infinity…

Drowning – A Poem

I scream; I laugh; I cry about.

I know their hearts are filled with doubt

in fear.


They listen not; they understand not; they compose not.

They fill the time with meaningless snot

in distraction.


Our only hope, our only life, our only love.

Our minds opening to a significant shove

in reality.


The voice we hear; there is a sound.

The silence is not as remote or profound

as imagined.


We break the norm and stand our ground.

We do not need the frivolous found

as created.


But many fall: lost, broken and battered.

Emotionless corpses screaming their chatter

in desperation.


There is only one and until we see

there is no break from you and me,

we drown.


And the water consumes us all…


More to Life – A Poem

They walk and work and never look

beyond the day-to-day reflective book

of each other.


So much and more can be felt

if we study not just the hand of flashcards dealt

to each of us.


For all life ends, short and sweet

feeding our hearts, wanting to beat

right out of our chests.


Sometimes, the memories fade

creating a wish that they had stayed

more clear.


But nothing can keep out the love

because we are so much a part of

one another.


When we know this without a thought,

then, we know that we are not

ever alone.


And the music continues to sing…

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



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…



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…?

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.
