The mystical allure 
Of an island in the sun
Embraced by deepest waters 
Of sparkling sapphire blue
A tranquil sanctum
A secret retreat
A calling from within
Where one day two sweet lovers meet
And on this Isle their hearts entwined
Where promises and vows were made

Dear home
Dear home,

I've searched for you for a long time now,
I've looked under the bed,
Under the carpet,
Behind all the doors,
Yet I haven't met you,

I've ventured souls deep,
To see if you were there,
I've poured myself out
To deceptions of you,
To find they are...Read More

Your Side of the Bed
You face the wall,
And snore through the night. 
I face the window,
And pray for morning light. 

You say it’s all in my head,
We’re not falling apart. 
The pain is in my chest,
The breaking of a heart. 

You face the wall,...Read More

Falling in love,
To falling apart. 
Always ending up, 
Back at the start. 
I’ll face the window,
You face the wall.
When pride is strong,
Apart we will fall. 
Falling out of love, 
Two hearts on the ground. 
Still we get back up, 
To...Read More

The Sound of Heartbreak
It’s the slip of a name. 
An accident, you claim. 

It’s the breath drawing out of me,
And red is all I can see. 

A deafening silence heard,
Tears fill my eyes, vision blurred. 

It’s quiet like a church mouse,
Silent screaming through...Read More

After the Fight
She lays awake on tear stained pillows. 
He says you know I love you right?
His words don’t sound the same, 
His apology insincere tonight. 
Lost in her thoughts again, 
It’s back to fight or flight. 
The laughs have expired, 
With...Read More

Premium Member on this lover's day
he strung his heart upon a cloud
for all the world to see
he stole my heart, broke it twice
then gave it back to me

all these pieces raining down
gathered on the lawn
sit along a lonely path
on this misty dawn

my eyes now cry

The Lingering and the Unconsoled Heart
The Lingering and the Unconsoled Heart
by Michael R. Burch
There is a silence—
the last unspoken moment
before death,
when the moon,
cratered and broken,
is all madness and light,
when the breath comes low and complaining,
and the heart is a ruin
of emptiness and...Read More

He demands and he growls
my chest grows cold and quiet
I struggle for the words
I hear the sounds of my breathing
the swish of air in, then deeper downward shush
my chest moves more deeply 

I am afraid of his anger, sharp snapping...Read More

Why Can't You Understand

Emotions running like a
steam mill!
About to scream frustrated
because you don't understand
how I feel!
Asking God to protect
me and to help me heal.
Thinking I should have thought
twice, and yield.
Broken down to the knees I kneel!
From now on my heart will be hard
as...Read More

Do you hear the whispers?
They are all around for those who listen.
I prefer to ignore the noise,
For out of darkness the voices are risen.

Then speak it plain and...Read More

You Tossed Me About
You tossed me about,
You smiled in motion as I broke in pierces,
Did you see what you had?
As you swayed me powerlessly unto the prisons of your heart,
You poisoned my heart with your trickery,
Something that looked like love,
Did you hear my...Read More

Depression and other matters of the mind

But his feet were a foot above the floor.

He finally corrected, his every wrong!!!

On the other side, the needle pierced her vein
She felt it...Read More

Premium Member My heart was February ice
My heart was February ice
Kneeling to barren, cursed winter
Beneath weak, broken sacrifice
White skies cracked, and springtimes splinter

Through seasons youthful, blurry run
My heart was February ice
Unmelted, I defied the sun
My coins too few for water's price

Austere solitude must suffice
So long, I...Read More
