He left
That night locking
Her away with a kiss;
Her soul captured by his spirit,
She stayed.

She waits -
For the spirit
To light her pitch-black days;
To breathe into her missing nights;
She’s still.



Traditional style cinquain: syllable count: 2/4/6/8/2
for the Cinquain Contest of Dr.Ram Mehta (theme: Longing)

Tears of a child

I hear
Each night she cries
Tears like crystalline rain;
They pierce my heart like frozen knives,
Sink deep

keyboard chasing ripples through notes’ interludes, pounding, drowning crushed love… ebony fingers like tendrils stiffen from refrains, despair on moonless halls… blistered Dr. Ram Mehta's Cinquain Contest by nette onclaud

The love
That I feel
Can never sleep.
Anxiety that kills me
With warmth.

I've missed
Terror briddled
Set to gallop
My heart.

Words spoken
For heart that's set

Red rose...
Breasts to hug
With zeal breast bored
In rose!!! 

That I yield
Can't just end.
Anxiety that kills me
In pain.

Not One

not one
for pickup lines
(need to start drinking first!)
say "Love decorate my room tonight"

Be free

There, there,
she has long gone,
let her go and be free,
free to live and roam as you please,
be free.

Return to thee
Years of separation 
Our lives mirror images 

Days of yearning
I am a new person
Sprouting come spring and summer

To imagine
Your sweet lips upon mine
This is a beautiful thing

Not seen
In the city
Surrounded by the multitude
