Artist



                        Tonight like a child,
                           caring not the time
                                  nor the place.
                         Studying you as only an
                                artist could know.
                          The lines and features
                             of your face.

                          I've painted this picture
                               a thousand times,
                             remembering you,
                                  when we're apart.

Enough



                  Walk the beach with me today,
                       and hold my hand,
                    for I am lonely.
                  Smiles are expensive,
                     and I haven't enough money,
                   for the down payment.

Your Form


                                   Here in the shadows of the evening
                                       light blocked,
                                   by the rooms covered windows.

                                   I know your form,
                                         from touch.
                                   The valleys,
                                       the smothness of your skin.
                                    The smell from your long
                                          prefumed hair.

                                    I need not a picture
                                         to store away.
                                     For your image is buried deep
                                           within my mind.

Todays Special


                               If you go with me,
                                      todays special is 
                               twice around the moon and back.
                               Gathering stardust for your collection,
                                    just you and me.

                                Learning the constellations,
                                    and making a few of our own.

                                And when we return,
                                   we'll write a book and become
                                        learned people.
                                And if the special doesn't fit,
                                   we can have hot dogs and beans.

Old Shoe Box

                           I'll take our times together,
                             and put them away
                           in a old shoe box.
                            Wrapped in yesterdays newspaper.

                            Brought back when things
                               weight me down.
                            Hidden from prying eyes,
                              and those who may
                                  understand.

                             For when the clouds arrive,
                                   and storms brew over the 
                             horizon.
                             I'll hide away and open my shoe box,
                               and smile the day away.

THE LONE SENTINEL

                                     As I walk the beach
                                        a seagull
                                      a lone sentinel,
                                      announces my coming.
                                      His shrill cry beckoning,
                                             his comrades to fly.

                                      When I pass,
                                             they will return
                                       as though I'd never passed
                                           that way before.

                                       Covering my tracks with their
                                           thousand little feet.
                                         And again that lone sentinel,
                                          Posted to guard against
                                                 intruders.

Waiting a Long Time

Tucker Carwile

                                   So many years,
                                         hiding,
                                    always wondering,
                                      if these works are real.

                                    Finding you with
                                          just a click.
                                     A place to post your thoughts.

                                     Reading others,
                                         that have been hiding
                                      as I , 

                                      Thank you poetysoup,
                                            for making my 
                                       feelings come true.

Simplicity


                   I was wandering,
                          until I met you.
                   You wih your explanation
                        of love.
                    Me guarding against things
                       I as afraid of.

                    I was apprehenensive in showing
                         emotions.
                     Not wanting to get involved,
                        me explaining all things
                                    scientifically.

                      Could I, with my education,
                         have missed the simplest equation,
                            that of love and caring.

Strange Places


                                  When I rolled over with you,
                                     I gazed at blankets
                                            hung over dirty windows,
                                   The ceiling,
                                          with designs from
                                       JC Penney Co.
           
                                      And then,
                                            there you are.
                                      Smiling, 
                                            touching,
                                         knowing that with you.
                                      We can make this place
                                         the Hilton.

Lay With Me



                               Lay with me,
                                 and we will speak of things,
                                 both old and new.
                                Of loves,
                                    lost and found,
                                  and friends 
                                     remembered and forgotten.

                                  And when we have 
                                           finished.
                                   You will have known
                                           my mind,
                                       and me yours.
