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.

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

thousands of my words are insulted
in the phrase forming questions
hundreds of sentences you express
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 black you growled
I say yellow you think I'm crazy
I say blue you think I'm fake
I say red you are angry
I let you think I easily gave up
I shut up you think I'm a stone head
I laugh you think I'm railing
I smile you think I'm punishing
I'm sad you think I'm selfish
I cry you think I'm...

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,
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.
He takes my ink a...

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 ...

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

In my life of lost love
I gladly relinquished
the most cherished
for one wish
that I have shared
with no one
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?

My heart breaks for those
in care homes
waiting to die
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...

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

You opened my eyes
then shut them again
the sun shone
then came the rain
the joyous rapture
and the ceaseless pain
that today sounds insane
once a transport of delight
now a trip down memory lane.

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 ...

Pain in my stomach, heart, mind,
stabs of a knife
I yearn for this piercing pain
I've lacked it far too long.
Punch me, hurt me, kill me almost.
when the rain has ceased
a flower can bloom again
a new blossom
the same plant
Revive me, ungrateful love
Make me another

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:...

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 ...

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
Grown from the time th...

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

Hair elastic bangles around a wrist
Notches carved into a bedpost
One size down a leather belt
Bathroom stall in the back bar
Live a lie but love a kiss
Short lived bliss
Sun rise and sun run
A wrap dress undone
No, I don't mind
You should know I don't mind
I do this all the time
Please don't ask me if I'm fine
Because a warm sip of fire that rests in the chest,
Is better ...

He is the blue earth
But with oceans too deep to explore
I am his sun
But he needs the warmth of my core to survive
- To thrive
I chase him right round infinitely
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

She didn't use you
But you did have a use
You didn't lose her
But you tightened her noose
Too cowardly to step off your stool;
Not a lion,
She is but a cub
It's your call
behind that curtain,

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

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.

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!
Thursday 10th January 2019 5:53 pm
Your words flow
though my veins
and light up my soul
I've ever known.
From another dimension.
Steam. My dopamine.
Thursday 10th January 2019 12:54 pm
as warm as the sun begins to promise
shadow of your eyes as clear as dew
your sincere smile embraces courtesy
cheer your heart early on in the day
the graceful shadow of your passion
longing to swing
embraced, invited you
to spur the adam's apple
combining love glue one heart
shadow of your passion
for successive pace
Thursday 10th January 2019 9:06 am
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
staring at my daydream about us
talking in a ...

it pulls back, tight,
a finger falls away
flung through the air
till it hits
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’ll take you everywhere
Wednesday 9th January 2019 9:10 pm
the row of your words
keeps the meaning of longing
a bunch of poems implies
the turmoil of wanting to meet
the sound of the song
is getting closer to desire
to reach you in a warm cuddle
I imagine that
you are kidding me in sincere love
naturally flowing soothes our relationship
expressions of your feelings
fluoresce in a reasonable manner
happily our hopes are shining
I dipped th...

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
enjoy the life
that's real beautiful
I want myself to be like you
in cold but warm
life revolves full of meaning
my hope is wet with rain
I want to be filled

I know you're hurting baby and feel like giving up.
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.
I see your flame is dimming baby, I'll light you up.
You must be exhausted baby, you've fought enough.
I'll fight your ba...

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...
Sunday 6th January 2019 3:48 pm
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 straight line feels spicy
the string of words feels brash
the choice of concentrated terms feels sticky
a row of spooky expressions feels cruel
the line of sweet poems feels cynical
serene poems feel ache
I can't always write beautifully
I can't always be charming
I don't always reflect diligently
I'm not always fluent in love
I am not always great to flatter
I can't always unders...

The razor thin space between
stimuli and response
I decided to put a
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...
Wednesday 2nd January 2019 6:57 pm
afraid of heart hugging fragments of day
cloud overflowing abyss
I hope to pursue a beautiful line of promise
sad soul ends in resignation
the news frame passed without meaning
like a clown burst into laughter
music box presents love songs
my singing feels blandly hoarse
a packet of rice smiled sweetly
feels reluctant to touch it
thirst in the cynical word hole
immersed in anger did...
