Hoping for love
When I was young
I used to dream
Of a Valentine's message
In the school magazine.

Every year I lived in hope
But did i ever get one?
Nope :( 

Declarations of love
For the pretty girls,
But none for Miss Freckle
With the mad ginger curls.

I didn't like...Read More

Valentine's SLAM
A centric couple

Echanging different coloured roses

Holding hands with vice like grip

Earth betwix their curling toes

Beneath a moonlight torn astray

With such so birthed exploding hearts

It even stirs the deaf neighbours

And labours love

Valentine poison arrow breech

Still hidden in the shadowy hall's

Of old...Read More

Premium Member Defenceless
Against cruel taunts repeatedly uttered
In scornful tones one might use to a dog,
A sensitive child may be defenceless.

At school there may be damage done by those
Who do not wish to show themselves as week,
They do not wish to appear defenceless

Remember when you were a wee thing in elementary school?
Just learning to count,the ABC's and the Golden Rule?

Then along came Valentine's Day, cake and oh, that yummy candy.
Exchanging cards was fun and just delightfully dandy.

But and your friend, sadly,...Read More

To Conner, With Love
I know you don’t want to hear it
But one day you WILL 
look up and think, 
“Dammit Mom”
And then notice the rose-gold
Of a sunset

Just like I’m
Always taken by surprise 
At how your eyes
Can change from green 
to dusty gold then...Read More

Mean In Green
I stood on the corner this morning
Absorbing the fresh morning air
listening attentively to the morning news
That has everyone so upset and confused

Stirring lazy bodies out of bed

Tom Boy
As a child I was called a Tom Boy,
following my twin brother like a shadow,
wherever he went I would tag along,
hanging out with school boys to belong.

playing for hours during the summer,
I learned to...Read More

Sometimes I sit and wonder: 
Would our world be on a better path
if in elementary school we paid more attention
to the lessons we learned in math.

I imagine back then we didn’t understand
how those lessons would relate
as we grew a little...Read More

High School Crush

trying to get your attention I sat next to you,
you looked up and your blue eyes melted me,
my knees were shaking and wanted to flee.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special friends.

You aren’t our mother,
But your support has been just as strong.

When we came to you with silly notes,
You cuddled and praised, even upon awful tommyrot.

Nine fearsome ghosts 
I learned roam my World
Invisible, tangible as the case might be
Otherworldly, worldly acting as host 
For other things I could not see.

One keeps the watch  
One wanders far
Marching these lands.
