In his fight for right,

All his weight behind the light.

His quotes right on the money,
But not for the sake of the money,
His eyes on...Read More

Heaven Forbid
Well he's my friend and I'd never
Do anything to betray him but
The things you say and do when
We’re alone I get the feeling you're
Just using him to get to me...

But my intuition is usually right

Robins the name given me
But poemprophet or sweet pea
Are some that suit me much more

My words are right on the money
Flowing emotions...Read More

Have Sympathy Number 3
Poem for contest
Was a big test
Must be funny
Right on the money

Waterfall in store
Get to the shore
Stayed with flow
Over...Read More

With lovers before he came along

This certain love she feels for him
Is deep and proud,it's not a whim
His love for her cannot be weighed
So...Read More
