Loneliness

Anguish shackles the soul eternally and renders the heart barren. Awakening the desire for retribution. Desperate for liberation from the bitter whispering of the mind. Morality in all its definitions submits to humanity and the dreams of the chosen.

You Love Me

You love me, You love me not, Crystal teardrops Broken heart, Yesterday I didn’t even know you Today I wish I’d never met you And tomorrow I will follow you anywhere Because I love you Even though you love me not At least that’s what you say And then you kiss me and walk away…

Morning Memories

Mornings have become my favorite time as my thoughts and dreams dwell on memories we create. The way my fingertips tingle as they caress your bearded lips, idly stroking hair covered cheeks. The gentlest trace over your closed eyes Your breath is slowly exhaled, and I wonder Is my touch painful? Do I stop? As…

Listening

I am listening for that pin to drop and a moment of complete silence before everyone starts talking at once. I am listening for someone to interject common sense into the mix of babble. I’m listening for that perfect note sung in a choir that resonates to my core. I am listening for that dinner…

Dreams of Peace

A thirst of the body can be quenched, leaving the heart still parched. Food nourishes the body, but the mind continues to starve. To many people peace is just a word, but it needs no language to be understood. It follows no single creed and does not obey individual governments. Peace is a state of…

May

As the gentle rays of the sun dance around you may their warmth remind you of me. Whereas my dreams of you smolder deep waiting to become a blaze burning wild and free. As the mist of a soft summer rain clings to your skin each dewdrop will murmur my name As my soul was…

You

My heart needed a rhythm to beat in time with so yours sounded the cadence mine could follow. As the universe yanked my strings like a marionette you danced along in the audience, so I wasn’t alone. In your arms I found shelter from the strength of emotions that crashed against me and almost drove…

Hope

Dreams are the footprints of life. Words are the testimony of dreams that are triumphant. Courage is the motivation to move mountains. Love becomes the capability to move beyond differences. Wisdom is the distance between the forgotten and the unknown. Faith becomes the purpose to breathe. Compassion awakens the need to cherish all. Justice wants…

A Hearts Desire

I survived an isolated and mediocre existence only to flourish in your presence, where a hint of your smile brightens even my forlorn seclusion. My envy of the wind is irrational for it merely caresses your lips. Yet it has the freedom I do not, as I long to openly embrace but I cannot for…

Dragons

The scaly fire-breathing lizards are everywhere by living in my fertile imagination. None are dancing the Tango on the top of the Empire State Building or splashing small rowboats in the Loch Ness or eating bean burritos at the local Taco Bell or flying first class on United Airlines flight 356 None sing off tune…

Gargoyle

This poem was inspired by the song “Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely” by the Backstreet Boys. And trying a different style of poetry.
