Fields of Blazing Stars
flower, happiness, nature, seasons,
By your ink to this parchment, my thoughts tattooed
I'm drawn to this bouquet; I am so madly
Fields of Blazing Stars, laying randomly, strewed
Happiest are these thoughts deliberately construed
Winter taking them from my core destroys me...Read More
goodbye, judgement, mythology, symbolism,
The river of life flows fast toward the weir
This scene is now reality, not a pantomime
So smile for the ferryman as he draws near
Is that sweet music that you can now hear
It is calling softly...Read More
From the Catacomb
Oh no, Tokoloshe is coming for me.
I don’t want to die.
Oh, my God, I better flee.
I’ll hide behind the Suonoki tree.
The vicious predator won’t find me with his evil eye.
Oh no, Tokoloshe...Read More
courage, fear, light,
I'd spread my wings to soar in flight
If I but had the courage to make the leap
Brave and bold I'd face the morning light
I'd rage against the coming of the night
And when seduction spun silken...Read More
Switch On Warm Fronts
angst, dark, introspection, lost,
Uncommon Sun frisks mercury— heat's blight
On Winter's frame around tree trunks and boughs,
Shrieking frost shattered— melts in her tears, rights.
Atypical thaw for this season's height,
Where my mime yet waits to move for the clouds;
Uncommon Sun...Read More
As shadows dance on my wall,
I lie awake in bed.
Who has come to call?
Was that a noise in the hall?
Or was it just in my head?
As shadows dance on my wall.
Did I lock the door?...Read More
emotions, feelings, inspirational, introspection,
Soon the dragon will arrive with fire
it’s storm leaving everything anew;
I am smitten by what could transpire;
Blazing it’s trail are Rebels for hire
lighting a pathway with what is true;
Soon the dragon will arrive with...Read More
The Forgotten Girl
dark, depression, gothic, loneliness,
There’s a loneliness to her style, it’s true.
No sense of direction or means of success.
A cautionary tale for men with no clue.
With icy tone skin too pale for beauty’s cue.
Thin lips in a...Read More
A starseed, A lightworker
deep, faith, humanity, inspirational,
Finding selflessness serving the good of the greater
The mission, leaving all better, a little more sound
A starseed, a lightworker; a humanity relator
I'm drawn to those whose emotions need a respirator
By listening; I lift shouldered weights...Read More
Ode to an Ex-husband
anger, anxiety, break up,
Go now! I shall stay amidst my woe,
My soft heart twitches with affliction.
Fleeing condemnation, I will go!
A cold man of science; is no show.
Obscene as he can be, he hounds.
Go now! I shall stay...Read More
Hour after hour, I was sitting there,
the time unknown,
deep in prayer.
Her hand I held, but she was unaware,
I was all alone,
in much dispare.
I wish we'd had, more times to share,
while I was grown,
A Symphony of Tears
10th grade, 11th grade,
In the quiet depths where sorrows reside
A melody of tears, a silent choir
Each droplet, a note in emotions' tide
Crystal beads on cheeks, a poet's lyre
Reflections of moments, memories entire
In the...Read More
All aboard and fasten well our seat belt
Focus on new flight, trip for new success
Travel light, sit tall, forget fears we’ve felt.
Our past storms and snow in life will all melt
Over dream-clouds we might fly...Read More
beautiful, beauty, confidence, humor,
Forsooth, one must stand proud and get ready my dear
Hold thy breath for combat into that coveted dress
Ladies, unite, squeeze tight - let thy true self appear
'Tis the festive season for the expansive rear
That limp...Read More
Making a huge mess is so underrated,
it’s a release to let go of that rigid line;
Letting the rules go you’ll feel elated;
In those moments you feel berated
flashing emotions and colors combine;
Making a huge mess...Read More
