Touched by the breath of God as a valance of night comes down in silence of the nightingales reflecting memories as a valance whisper, Ave Maria

Expecting

Last Sunday was Father's Day down under

Hey, little one, don’t be coy, Take that alpha step, my boy. You’re luxuriating in my womb, Can’t stay, it’s not a catacomb. You do know what tomorrow is? I thought not; for that day is his. Didn’t think you’d bring a gift, Hopefully focused...

Just Be Honest

people may imagine things or even lie but the best way is simply to state it a it is.

As the reader may see from my prior posts, I went through a separation and a divorce. It was a shock to me so I tried to understand why. But each time I looked for an explanation I ran into a brick wall and even statements such as, "what did you do f...

Through Misted Panes

Regretful memories of lost love

A dull ache,That’s all it is, A half-remembered pain From long ago, But still very real, Inescapable. That is all that remains, A nagging remnant of love, Faded, dull, yet sharp As a splintered shard of glass, A fragment of iridescent joy, Pricking...

Can She Forgive Him?

When love has been heartlessly rejected, forgiveness my not be easily given

Bound to the cruel wheel of fate, I weep bitter tears once more, As if there existed for me some deep inexorable law,  A decree that condemned me to drive away those I adore. O fairest lily, in your sweet kindness you gave me your trust To ho...

Taking You Home

I'm taking you home, my darling.

Home to a better place My darling, My love for you will be forever, forever etched to my soul.   A love not for mortals. A love not meant for earth.   I'm taking you home, home to a special place that he set aside for yo...

From Darkness to Light

Faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains

She sits alone feeling cold lost and empty no one looking for her No family no friends Just darkness surrounds Sounds of distant traffic Wondering should she just pick up the knife And end her pain Tears slide down her cheek She’s...

Validation

free verse poem about validation; being different; being seen and acknowledged.

In the crossroads where silence meets sound, I find holy ground And I crave the pain of bravery When a moment of empathy flowers into envy I cry without knowing why I wish for a broken spirit so that I can fly The disparity of my reality So...

Lonesome Cafe

Without you, I'm so alone.

The morning is cold. My heart left empty,  yet still full of love,  so full of love for you.   I sit here now alone, with my heart in pain, yet so full of love for you.   My fingers tremble and...

Shattered

To many times

I am shattered I have been before Way to many times Holding women And broken men Sadness filled eyes Sobbing widows Another flag Draped across Lined up caskets When will it end Their homecoming  A white cross upon a field I am shattered Been her...
