I'm So Jealous

~The One That Got Away~

Here I lay weeping

I sing a sad song to sleep 

Fire cracking bones

kicking, screaming, pulling hair

The moment, gone forever

For Paulie: RIP

in this silence
the respirator breathes…
we did not know
his heart

*Inspired by Brian Strand's, Indelible Impressions contest. This was written the day after my 
Step-father-in-law passed away...he passed while we were in the room.

Small Voices

                                         Standing in Heaven
                                  a small voice calling my name
                                          the image is small
                                     I'm sorry God needed me 
                                    my child who was not born

by Michael J Falotico
Dedicated to all who have
lost a child before or after

Lost In Your Desire

~Lost In Your Desire~ (Tanka) Know you're in my heart and in my head and my blood Forever love you that in this will never stop feeling way I do for you Since you came to me I just fell in love with you Thrilled with all this true love that grows in me and stays strong and nothing for me the same Now I'm lost in you You're voice is so seductive Feel fire of your love your hands are all over me and now in your Love I'm lost Burning in your fire is your love that keeps me warm one that keeps me sane In the night my name you whisper and just quench in your desire.

Relationship Breakups

A hole in my heart
There is no death with this pain
Life with no living
The stomach cramps with sorrow
Hope lost with only darkness

Dreams of you are created

And rainbows isn’t my abode

My dream of failure

The night feels surreal,
in flight in my dressing gown
Swooping through backyards,
I reach to save them from loss,
but find myself falling down.

Proud third wheel

See them hand in hand,
Together they shine brightly
Smiles on both faces
So sweet and caring to me,
Who could ever wish them apart?

Boy asks for gift help,
Girl  matches my craziness,
Perfect for eachother,
An adorable couple,
Hopes and expectations rise.

Gazing gleefully,
Into another's  bright eyes,
Example of love,
Now forever together,
May your paths stay bound as one.

A young Akita
Brought to Tokyo in March
So loved and cared for
Professor Uneo tried
Hachiko did not fetch balls

In time he escaped
Now larger, he searched the town
Found the train station
There his masters scent vanished
He waited till the last train

When he saw master
Greetings of joy and surprise
Then the walk to home
Hachiko did this each night
Impressing the professor

Everyone knew him
Giving snacks to Hachiko
Months and months passed by
Until one cold winters night
When the last train came and left

No master to greet
Hachiko walked home alone
There had been a stroke
Each night Hachiko would wait
Eyes fixed on the last trains doors

His loyalty strong
He would go to the station
Never faltering
Day after day, he waited
Years passed, loyalty strengthened

Died at eleven
The town, used to his presence
Put up a sculpture
Precisely where he would wait
Hachiko's day is March Eighth

Freedom Price

Freedom’s Price
headstones aplenty
our freedom’s evident price   
our boys quite honored… 
at soaring majesty’s feet
national symbol, half-mass…

nature’s majesty
eagle,  flags their distinction
courtesy’s duty
to sacrifice sworn and done…
soaring freedom... succeeded!!!

On the Edge of a Dream

scent of virgin snow
bathing the night in silence
     my daughter’s footsteps
          echoing on dream’s frayed edge
a yearning heart constricting

I dedicate this to my daughter who is working and living in the UK. Snow scenes always remind me of her and I long to see and hold her again.

Swinging on a Star

                                                     A sky which was dark...
                                               I traveled blind without sight...
                                                   Searching and searching...
                                             Then a warm light passed by me...
                                                 "Rosanna" became my star...

What One Sense Cannot The Other Can

Outside looking in
the body the hope desire
cosmetic media,
the mind is the true beauty
heart, soul those one cannot see.
