Upon her lips so lush..so full

A kiss filled with all the passion,

Held her close,so very close
Felt her heart beating..

Wished with all...Read More

Silent in the moonlight
We sat sunk, silent, staring the moonlight.
The new year's weather; whether cool or cold
Muddled in the day by survival fight,
We couldn't decipher and say it bold.
Ourselves we found in one another's shoes
Tied by the day's sorrows in a state —...Read More

Premium Member Doubt your fear
Fear lies in wait, anticipating dreams; 
then, shreds them bit by bit as each ascends. 
But, just afore, allows one great embrace; 
ensuring well-earned praise for crafty schemes.

Are We Too Cold To Look Beyond
“Irish I am,” my mam speaks in hushed tones to the air

Intones, “Ireland, O Ireland, what are you?
Where do you keep yourself, so I may rediscover you?”
Her speech unknown surely to her

I wonder at what lesson had been taught

Not sweetened nor amusing to repletion.

The bragging traits in the shadows of disgrace
Except the humbled alive in justice and truth.

Eaten afore the arrival of first frost,
Sometimes it’s like a never-ending contest
That you entered time again and once more lost.

Sometimes it’ll leave you feeling your leftover
