Some hearts can never be tamed
sad love, angst, loss, lost love,
Once when my soul spoke,
you betrayed every word.
Then your tongue promised
to only sing with sincerity.
I danced for a brief while,
lost in your angelic orchestra.
We'll Always have San Andreas
depression, relationship, sad love,
-rearranging the stars-
How could we agree to separation?
If you were destined to be my soulmate,
Why would we allow the stars to change our fate?
Tin Foil Hearts
sad love, life, lost love, sad
On pensive planes of wraith-like existence,
Are stoic shadows feigning affection;
Crimson lips of withering consistence,
Have lost their craze for craving confection.
Tear-filling prisms tilling a rueing sphere,
beauty, butterfly, sad love,
Her magic is drawn
from an ocean's
slain by her trembling perfection
you grab hold of her
to save yourself
Loss of More - FEELINGS contest

Loss of more
Not only did I lose you, but more,

in years to come with further to adore,
as reflections of your...
NO ESCAPE - LYRICS
sad love, dark, deep, depression, lonely,
The freedom of life’s end without escape,
no place to elude the pain of despair.

darkness to cover existence...

death, sad love, winter,
I pass the graveyard deep in snow.
One woman at a headstone weeps
all dressed in black like winter crows
as memories in warmth she keeps.
While icicles from...

sad love, beauty, care, creation, imagination,
She writes about Fall's beauty in the rain
The falling raindrops' dance ascribing thence
Bespoken verse that lightens her refrain
before the time they met...
Date Night (and the day after)
sad love, food, lost love, sad,
Opening line from "Highway Five Love Poem" by Ruth L. Schwartz
This is a love poem for all the tomatoes
I squished to make our Date-Night spaghetti.
Images of feathers
sad love, allusion, devotion, loneliness, muse,
"Once upon a midnight Poe"
Underneath the midnight mask, I remove the makeup at last,
The moon is anvil to my mood, mooring along the vacant vast...
Soul mates solace
sad love, art, bereavement, body, care,
When my final shadows cling on desperately
Where I fight formidable battles
to merely hold the light
I send you loving vibrations
and soul sustenance
Deep from the cathedral
The Special Rose
sad love, grandparents, lonely, love, old,
She sits and rocks, so gently back and forth
Her chin leaning heavily on her chest.
In her hands she cradles, one flat waxed rose
And sighs as...
My Gift of Tears
lost love, sad love,
Leave you my tears?
I think you already own them . . .
They sparkle in dew on the grasses,
on your windows they cling to look in;
sad love, beauty, death, destiny, life,
The crossroads led me to the edge of life,
a rugged path of love that caused despair.
In turmoil to escape my feelings rife
with anguish of...
You Let the Moment Pass
leaving, sad love,
Eternity within your grasp
My plea? To undo the clasp
Let Desire wash away
Tomorrow and yesterday
Every other thought and dream
Meaningless I make them seem
Had you let the...
Mystical Lore of the Moonlight Moth
sad love, allegory, desire, fire, hurt,
Mystical amour of moonlight moth's whimsical lure,
her glowing flame in sensual saffron gold attire;
restless tease with every breeze, gilt cavorting contour,
pale green flutterings, her wings...
ALL HER DREAMS TURNED TO DUST
betrayal, sad love, wedding,
No one followed her as she ran away
fleeing from the altar on her wedding day
She’d been jilted by Jed her handsome groom
so locked herself away...
Edge of a Whisper
sad love, beauty, break up, goodbye,
How kind of you to open up my veins,
With little but his name upon your...
blue, sad love, winter,
If you have to lose a love then
not in winter
when words are cold and eyes are
closed to light
while watching falling snowflakes you remember
SHADOW OF JEALOUSY
jealousy, sad love, trust,
SONNET – SHADOW OF JEALOUSY
Oh, those woeful shadows of jealous ways
precarious villain for reasons dazed,
poisoning the longing love‘s lasting days,
without confidence to chase love hazed.
When Winter Comes, Remember Me
sad love, assonance, autumn, heartbreak, remember,
When Winter comes, remember me
beside you on lush ivory sand
If slushy fingers beckon thee,
arise and brush aside her hand
As you awake on...
We Will Never Know
sad love, absence, beach, longing, lost
The sky was orange, red and peach
we strolled towards each other
on a deserted pebbled beach
a smile that got us talking
together slowly walking
till twilight crept unseen
For Only A Moment
sad love, absence, break up, loneliness,
Did it have to last for only a moment,
our love withered before the flowers you sent,
white carnations, a pure love they meant,
a relationship so newfound...
FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS - COLLABORATION WITH JAN ALLISON
sad love, betrayal, emotions, friendship, heartbreak,
You told me we’d always be friends
Out of the blue our friendship ends
I was your ‘forever friend’ - you told me so
Come Hell or High Water
sad love, abuse, anxiety, fear, hurt,
She looks out the window and sees him in the distance.
So much fear inside leaves no room for resistance.
If she ran right now...
