In Any Other World

In any other world, we would have been lovers Plucked from the same ripening tree. If obstructed, we’d have twined our vines about them,  Throttled those who’d deny us our destiny, Leapt towards the light unrestrained. Nothing would have prevented the inevitable, For life itself would have driven us on; It had to, you see. […]

You & Me

Unselfish thoughts Patterns from stars A helpful word This love of ours  In dream and thought Our tides roll free The little things That’s you and me   

Don’t

 Don’t cry Through fear. Don’t lose  Your hope. Don’t slip  On dreams. Don’t fail  To cope. Don’t hide Your troubles, My darling, Don’t dare. For loving You always, On shoulder I’m there.

In Glass

 Shattered hearts In glass collide  Across an ocean  Far and wide Crystal feelings Cut and gone As love’s a game We all play wrong Distance captured  Mirrored hue In panes of pain I think of you Someday, somehow I’ll gaze and see  Not me in glass  But face of thee  (Image courtesy of Wen-M on deviantart.com)

Unnecessary Guilt

A poem in remembrance of all those people the terrible tropical storm did take, and those it did not.   The rivers are swollen  Banks fit to burst It’s pouring down still How could it be worse Then wind starts to whip up Things flying around If it isn’t tied down It lifts from the ground They say it’s a cyclone  Tornado, strong […]
