Biography

Hello, I am a substance abuse counselor for the NYCDOE. I am not a poet by any means but here and there I get inspired to write.

The Lighthouse

Waves of time crashing on desire's coast So close and yet so far I wait at my post The time may come when the ground beneath washes away Wind blowing heavily I stand firm and without sway Certain there comes a day when such a fog may clear That allows your light to reach my pier Ever so loud the sound of ocean's chatter Such a distraction from that which matters Even though people come and go with and like the tide The facts of life I've grown to abide Wistfully waiting for clouds to subside So your brightness may illuminate my ride The distance between us challenging and new Is but one obstacle for this skiff and one man crew Attempting to find what words can't say Clarity, intuition and certainly not dismay A fixed beacon of light past, present, and future tense I say to you now in hopeful suspense This much in my heart I know to be true Can't discount the way I feel about you
