Today

Okay, this is extremely free verse poetry. =D But – not really. I had a poem I was going to post today for the A-Z Challenge, but I really don’t like it because it’s dark and depressing and cynical. Trust me. It’s bad. Tomorrow, more poetry as promised. Okay, one Annie knockoff (I already did […]

Serene

Tranquil waters lap at my ankles, as I stir with my feet, while Red and gold of eternally setting and rising suns paint Universes of incomparable loveliness in my mind. Your hand quests for mine, quietly warm, seeking. I lean closer, twine my fingers in yours, thinking of Many waters coming together as one. On […]

Reality

┬áReality Grab the world by the edge and tear open a hole, Like opening a book. Peel aside the world you think You know, the world you think you see. Reveal Another world, a darker and deeper one. Good. Step through the frayed edges of stray imagination, Fears and hopes dripping on barren earth. Nightmares […]

Quest

Quest One boy, one girl, two Halfling guides, Five swords, three horses (their sturdy rides), An invisible giant, their guardian strong, Were confident nothing could go wrong. Right. “Someone should probably write this all down. It’s all fun and games till somebody drowns. That’s what mom used to say.” “Too bad she isn’t alive today. […]

Polizia

  What happens in Florence, stays in Florence. How I wish that could be true! A few too many glasses of red wine, A few too many rounds of songs dancing- After that, It’s all a blur. Seated in the back of a small cell, To you, I say, “Next time, I buy drinks.” You […]

Orion

Cold fire scattered across sparkling skies, Eternal hunter seeking everlasting foe. I’d be empty without- Lost without- The certainty of uncertainty. I fight, nightmare dreams, seen and unseen. I need, to find something left to find. The lights you send, Betelgeuse, Rigel May not even be there, now. I know, in the seeking, we see, […]

Nevertheless

Nevertheless You’ve treated me wrong for far too long. I’ve let you. Need to forget you, I guess. But I can’t. It only makes – how my heart breaks, Never makes me love you less, Only makes me love you more. You call me a loser, beggar not chooser, Who else could want me? So […]

Median

  Sharp knife drawn like a thin line across my heart. Decisions you have to make. Decisions I have to make. You can only have one. Breath hitches in my chest, Air dry, Heat rising in ribbons from the dying sand. “Save him,” you murmur. “Save him.” What little strength you have. But I saw […]

Love

Wish I could be more like (you) Patient, kind. I’ve been hurt so many times it hurts. I’m not envious, not boastful, not proud. And what has that got me? While pious show-offs reign. I don’t delight in evil. I can say that much. One day the truth will come out I hope. There’s that […]

Kept

Kept Fresh flowers encase our secret hideout. Heady sweet scents enshroud us. We sit together on a worn oaken bench, Hands clasped, like lovers, like friends. Your dark eyes, bright with joy, Skin soft like tiger lilies, exotically tan. “All these years.” -All these years. “You never told.” -I never told. I lean forward, eyes […]
