Sonya was the best friend I ever had,
we were always doing things together.
When she moved away I was very sad,
she was my refuge in stormy weather.

Over the years I've thought about her life,
did she join Delta, so she could travel?

" A sweet friendship refreshes the soul."

Many friends have come and many have gone,
such sweet beauty that stayed just for awhile;
I have a friend that I can lean upon,
others have left without even a smile.

And that has...Read More

a broken heart cannot be healed easily. it takes time and pain 
a lot of it 
it takes breakdowns and blank stares

Brain's Busty Ballet
eerie ensconced eyes
salient spooky sight
kinetic kindled flames
bounty blazing brace
gigantesque gaunt gulp
taunted tunnel; induct

scrunched seeped smile
dripping damped drive
hoisted feelings survived

callous covertures creates
brain's busty ballet
sane senses strays

moistened mystic memories
damped dull dwindling.

Your sensuous eyes render me a fool.
How clumsy I become within your mien.
I stutter, stumble trying to keep cool
While all the time envisioning a scene
Of you and I together palm in palm
As sun departs behind the hillside's face,
And in the...Read More

Its meter and rhyme, delicate and sublime,
 fantasy surreal, personal appeal;

 but gather close to your heart
 the best way your words depart;

Butterfly, My Love

You have hair like golden silk. 
You laugh like clear water running over stones. 
Your eyes, they are the color of the sky, 
clear or stormy, matters not, they are the same. 

You have wings unseen. 
I know…

Jove's Jumpy Jets
purpl'd eyes heaven
with tongue cloven
met mystic malady
embroidered ensconced epilepsy 
dripping damped desires 
jittery earth admires

saline liquid loitering 
deflowered dusts damping 
scrunched sans spooky

moistened mists melt
Jove's jumpy jets
twain trailed crest

dull disease dances
later lost traces

Just For You

The shroud of night slides from the silken sky,
rise of dawn with crown of gold has begun.
On my olive meadow pearls of dew lie,
dance of yearning starts with shimmer of sun.

Hues of lilac clouds drizzle, flush your face,

My window pane puts on a winter scene
as silver specks of ice starting to seed.
Small pins grow with spiky bits between
and one pin lengthens to a dagger blade.

Then from the hilt a silver sword soon grows
and on each edge there...Read More

Enjoying bits of time spent together

Except your proposal
Might those we love than
Find it appeasing and perfect
Might togetherness keep us
And might love

Of harmonic and joyfilled

Dark Dances
reviving rusts revamping 
frolic feigning feasts
damped desires drooping 
mystic mists moaning 
puked passion plying 
tactic tier tucking 

sour scrunched smoothened
pleasant parks heightened 
dark dances darkened

fiery flames simpering
mocking mystic mists
towering; twigs twisting 

archaic aura blending 
brooding base bleeding.

Love In Flames
She loved the skylark
And she loved the grub
She didn't love me
Therein lie the rub

I penned her sonnet
On scented paper
She set it aflame -
Vanished in vapor
