Wonderings

I liked the way he looked at me

Like I was the only thing he could see

or that was worth looking at. 

 

I liked the smile he made for me

A tailored face, specifically 

to tell me what he couldn't say. 

 

I liked the things that went unsaid

The message in the nod, the tilt of his head, 

the eye contact held too long. 

 

I liked his arms, skin brushing skin

Enoughness

Our ultimate journey
in life brings us

to the place of
enoughness...

You are enough.
I am enough.

I see you
beyond the labels

You see the same 
spirit in me.

Your enoughness, 
my enoughness

melds together
to create 

the oneness
of love

and that is
enough.

I'm Sorry

Why say I'm sorry
for something in which
you had no part?

Because, shallow as those 
two words may seem...

the gesture plays 
a pivotal role in 
healing a broken heart.

Battlegrounds of the Heart

And all at once

We revisted the site

Where the wounded lie

 

We examined their injuries

Doing our best to determine

If they were fatal

 

It requires a detached rationale

It laughs in the face of pure emotion

For life is smarter than you think

 

Forever your opponent

Even when pretending

To be a friend

 

For life brought me you

Star crossed

Kept in Silence

entry picture

thousands of my words are insulted
in the phrase forming questions
hundreds of sentences you express
in murmur
so many invective words
you boast in swear
one word hate
you always repeat

it's been repeated this time
you never believe to what I say
I explained everything sincerely
you always ignore my explanation

over and over, your temper is angry
your insults hit the inner heart

I say orange you don't believe
I say purple you doubt
I say white you consider only a pretext

I say yellow you think I'm crazy

I say red you are angry

I let you think I easily gave up
I shut up you think I'm a stone head

The Only Sunshine I Need

Because of her, there is no sunrise.
There doesn’t need to be.
She is all the light I need.

Because of her, there is no sunset.
There doesn’t need to be.
I need all the light she is.

Ink and Paper

Ink and paper,
A young boy,
A foolish little girl.
This became the beginning of my writing.

“Write what you want,” he says to me.
I do, because he knows best.
I write everything I want. 

I write worries,
I write sadness,
I write fear,
I write recovery,
I write my own lovely fantasies,
I write anger,
I write sadness and fear again.
Later I will write recovery.

Lonely Without You

entry picture

time passed creeping sadly
drizzle added to my heart
what are you doing my soulmate
I hope you smile sweetly

the frog choir sounds hoarse
love song feels slicing sadly
I feel like I want to force my will
to unite our desire to combine love

stinging eyes staring at the white sheet
clear tears floating stuck
I painted you softly
the shadow of you is coming slowly

restless droplets ...

True Love

Have I loved?
Yes, on the spectrum,
towards the sacrificial side.
Silencing my soul,
losing my identiy.
Endless nights
crying myself to sleep.
I sometimes think I would have
preferred an easy love
bouquets of rainbow colored daisies,
sparkling teeth,
a passionate love,
French kisses in Rome,
ruffled sheets,
a forever love,
hugs, holding hands, 
finishing each other's sentences...

Amused

In my life of lost love
I gladly relinquished 
the most cherished
earthly pleasure 
for one wish
that I have shared 
with no one 
until now...
to be a muse
one with a wayward quill
that makes scholars question
a hundred years hence
if it's true, souls recognize each other 
in this wordly dimension.
Dare I believe my one wish
has come true with you?

Waiting for peace

My heart breaks for those

in care homes

sitting patiently

waiting to die

 

Sometimes remembering

who you are

sometimes silently crying

 

You wait with them

day by day

 

When you look into their eyes

there is nothing there

no fear, no desperation

and above all, no hope

 

In-between doses of morphine

when the pain makes them scream

they beg to...

Longing for Blue Morning

entry picture

welcome morning in early desires
soft your sincere fragrance a quiet edge
I don't want to leave the day
without feeling this
your presence
really gives me meaning

even though it's quiet in the morning
without singing of beautiful birds
and there is no cool dew blushing
your charm still brings excitement
caressing the promise of
expressing your desire

counting seconds of swinging ti...

The dichotomy of love

You opened my eyes 

then shut them again

the sun shone

then came the rain

the joyous rapture

and the ceaseless pain

unbridled laughter

that today sounds insane

once a transport of delight

now a trip down memory lane.

Earning a Living

For a short period in our marriage of over thirty seven years I earned about two-thirds of the income.
I didn’t set out to do this it just happened this way. I was a Specialist in the Army. My husband was a nursing student and he was being helped to pay school and living expenses through the Veterans Administration.

My husband never complained ...

kill me.

entry picture

Pain in my stomach, heart, mind,
stabs of a knife 
I yearn for this piercing pain 
I've lacked it far too long.

Ungrateful love:
Punch me, hurt me, kill me almost.

Almost.

so later
when the rain has ceased
a flower can bloom again
a new blossom
the same plant

Revive me, ungrateful love
Make me another

Kill me.

Harvest Memories

Glorious was that day:

Star rich the summer sky

Amongst the sun warm hay

We stole a sack on which to lie

 

Warm was that night:

Grass framed the starry gems

Below the hov'ring kite

We kissed amongst the tall grass stems

 

Heavenly was that tryst:

Grass rough the bed we made

Below a dusky mist

We took our love as grasses swayed

 

Fierce was that lust:

A passage from the book I'll never write

We had this connection like nobody else on this planet, whether there was one, ten or one hundred degrees of separation between us at any given time. It was as if our world was constantly contained within the constraints of a children's game only the two of us knew the rules to. I couldn't look across a room without his eyes instinctively meeting up with mine. Those same eyes never once looked at ...

fr[end]s

We sat on the edge of the bridge
Throwing our cigarettes off of it
We always said that we should quit
Before they kill us
But god knows we'd kill eachother first
We've always been so good with loaded words 

You threw your last smoke off the bridge
And with the fireball whisky you spit
It ignited with flames that you lit
But I fed your fire
And the devil knows the mistakes you made

The dead heat of summer
My bones are still cold
Walk through a crowded room
Cliche, but feel alone

Let him kiss my neck
But won't let him hold my hand
Let him watch me take off
Won't let him see where I land
Watch the lights going out
But never let them back on
And with the light of the morning I'm gone

Maybe blurry kisses
But not with "just friends"
Maybe outgoing calls
But not ...

Raised on parking lot promises
And "trust me I'm honest"'s
And smoke on our tongues while we kissed
On "I would never lie to you"'s
And "I swear I'd die for you"'s
Coming out of sixteen year old lips

Raised on hand-holding dashboard songs
If it feels right it can't be wrong
Go all the way or don't go at all
Fingers touch thighs and hips
Cat eyes and red lipstick

beautiful disaster.

A volcano
Aching to reach the skies
Tries and tries
Spits ash into the air that's always blown away
A mountain
Full of fire
The heat of a thousand suns stirs within
But no one could ever see through the smoke he creates -
Conflate
How every magician disappears
Smoke & mirrors
But when he explodes
Take cover
He will burn you to the ground

A hurricane
Twists and turns

eternal chase.

He is the blue earth
Awed;
But with oceans too deep to explore

I am his sun
Scortched;
But he needs the warmth of my core to survive
- To thrive

I chase him right round infinitely 
Indefinitely 
For he will only let my light shine
Half of the time

A shot of water cannot quench the thirst
Of the vast Sahara

A drizzle cannot cease the heat
Of a family home gone up in flames

And 1000 pages of penned out "I'm sorry"
Cannot change the way your eyes look right through me

You didn't lose her

in love with a need.

I do not resemble a garden rose:
But I resemble every thorn
And the crimson I drag out of you when you try to pick me
Rivals the crimson I've spilled onto the petals 

I do not resemble a white flag; 
For I am not the peace you seek
I am a pistol you put to your temple willingly
But I'll be the one to pull your trigger

I do not resemble a castle;
But I do share the same grey walls

heart is where the home is.

Home is where the heart is
And my heart beats with a constant ache to be home
But when you have no place to call home
Where does the heart reside? 

Is it just an empty space?

Until you find a place
To call your own

Until you find an embrace
That makes you feel less alone 

Until you find a face
That will call you to come home
Heal my ache...

Call me home.

Unsexy in my Sexual Prime

I am not a Harley Davidson,

but a moped.

I am the opposite of a fox 

I am a badger. 

I am not the cream at the top of the milk,

I am the last dribble you find when you’re making a cup of tea.

I am most unfortunately, unsexy in my sexual prime. 

Not adored, but ignored. 

But at least I've got a sense of humour!

My Dopamine

Your words flow 
though my veins 
and light up my soul 
like nothing 
I've ever known.
Chemical alchemy.
Cosmic destiny.
Beyond comprehension.
From another dimension.
Steam. My dopamine.

The Beauty of The Past

I'm tangled
it's not worthy to be welcomed
strange you greet me gently
while you are so beautiful sheen
I deserve to be friends with you

you said softly
in awe of beautiful letters
printed on the news sheet
I'm so happy in blushing
a series of initial phrases of longing

you save my simple series of poems
I also keep you beautiful in me

Slingshot

it pulls back, tight,
a finger falls away
gone
flung through the air
till it hits
and falls
a heavy stone sunk at the bottom of my stomach
but you’ve left the slingshot on the bench outside
and I don’t know how to leave you on that bed
a cold hand still holds my heart
instead, you’ll stay
a heavy stone sunk in my stomach
I’ll never leave you behind
I swear
I’ll take you everywhere

Our Longing Poetry

the row of your words
keeps the meaning of longing

the turmoil of wanting to meet
the sound of the song

naturally flowing soothes our relationship
expressions of your feelings
fluoresce in a reasonable manner
happily our hopes are shining

Regret

entry picture

Staring at a blank wall filled with my imagination about you. Your sharp eyes stab my sadness. My regret is moving the blue soul stirring. I don't understand what you mean by being silent.

The light rays fade in gaze. Do you accept my apology? Yellow flowers smell accompanied me late at night. Unable to cheer me up to face misery.

Singing grasshopper sad moaning. Painfully slicing the feelin...

evening rain causes cold
my imagination brings
your sweet smile
are you there?
when I contemplate longing

I want you to be cheerful
cheerful laugh off freely
ignore the dirty world
which does not disappear

I want myself to be like you
in cold but warm
jokes together
life revolves full of meaning

my hope is wet with rain
I want to be filled

You're building walls now baby but I'll climb on top.
I'll break them down now baby and lift you up.
You don't have to do this alone now baby, we'll partner up.
Don't think you feel too much now baby, I know it's tough.

Your Will Can Happen

as if the embers are grasped
resist the turmoil of anger
but it must happen
when love binds the soul

even though it is bitterly mingling
painful tears pool in the lids
should it spill in the patter

I held a blank shadow
and I tasted the sweetness of bile
I say a thousand times restraint
but the word droops without meaning

when I stumble hard
I count the sound of the gecko breakin...

A Candlestick

I hold my soul like a candlestick,

Without light, leading me blindly through the darkness, 

I stumble and fall

While collecting scars like the medals of a general's jacket,

I ground my base at the bottom of a valley,

As I watch the fires of the world chase through the trees

Glittering the skies with ash, the darkness hides my form.

Although from such treachery, a spark finds t...

the string of words feels brash
the choice of concentrated terms feels sticky

I don't always reflect diligently
I'm not always fluent in love

The Bleeding Edge

The razor thin space between 
stimuli and response 
is decision. 

I decided to put a  
romcom relationship
where love never ends
and be, just friends. 

It was a defining decision.

He decided that without 
certain stimuli, there would be 
no response, just an end.

Tempting as it is to give in
to conditioned responses,
I'm riding the razor's edge
into a new frontier...
