The Door

For months, she and I would talk to each other at length about nothing at all and everything in particular. Life, current events, what occupied our mind, what we did last night or the day before and so on. The conversation was convivial. I found her to be a charming and engaging woman. She was intelligent and well spoken, her words were chosen carefully with rarely an utter of profanity...

22 December

I stand alone in the quiet early morning night The cold December moon, while low, is still bright Her comforting light reveals your face to me I always find you when I look upon her, you see As this last autumn breeze kisses my face I feel your gentle hand upon my heart in this place The shadows of the morning quiet surround As if the peace the world sought has finally been found I turn...

What Does She See

What does she see With her eyes on me This shell of a man Filled with insecurity Broken and flawed Paint pealed and chipped On this meandering path I’ve stumbled and slipped The occasional scar Etched upon my skin Evidence of deeper wounds Remain buried within Hardly exceptional In fact garden variety Humbled and blessed She sees...

In The Depth Of Her Eyes

A once empty heart now feels full Tugged by another soul’s pull Crossing the pass on a wire Warmed by another souls fire Look deep inside of her eyes Find beauty there few ever see Look and learn from her heart What others could not hope to be In the depth of her eyes When the first light of day fills the room You know she will have to leave soon Now your heart feels empty and torn You...

Summer Storm

A soft murmur heard Droplets scatter about Thunder’s distant rumble Nature’s fury shouts Darkening skies Like a blanket conceal Turbulence above The Gods won’t reveal Sharp lightening cracks Illuminating the ground Storm clouds roar With a deafening sound Rain washes down As the heavens cry Indignation unleashed The storm passes by Whisper of wind Cleansing the air Warm sunlight’s...

Letting Go

We live our lives inside a dream Believe we know what it all means I tried to show you what I thought was real And can’t you see It’s hurting me I won’t let go And I want you to know That it’s you You mean that much to me Taking time to watch love grow Questioning what wouldn’t show I always told you just how much I cared Yet you won’t tell What your heart felt I’m letting go And I want...
