Life's Greatest Anguish

                                       life's greatest anguish:
                                  passion felt yet unexpressed
                                        harrowing hunger


   love in confinement
   a required sacrifice
desire in f^l^a^m^e^s

                                                                        cravings and longings
                                                                    consume the tormented heart
                                               there 
                                                 is 
                                                no 
                                              respite

Words No Longer True

reading through the lines
my eyes look for encryptions
of love in death throes

delight's desire
blinds the wisdom of the heart
to decipher truth

pain has different shades
reading words no longer true
excruciating...

One Time Too Many- Senryu Strings II

One time too many
maximum number of hits 
heart in rebellion

Keep your own baggage
I can hardly carry mine
help me don't harm me

No way to go back
Heart in hibernation mode
Sweet oblivion

PAIN FOR THE PETLESS

Really needed cat
or dog companionship this
stressful, hurtful day.

[There are days when nothing heals better than hugging your dog or stroking your kitty, and not having one around can leave a hole in your world when you need one.]
