The Ocean - Poem
Rippling waters like satin folds
Bend to the breeze that blows gentle
Like a whisper warm, waves wash ashore
And sands soft embraced; recede once more
The sun fair shines from sky above
It's rays of light so bright, my love
Reflections shimmering
A crystalline dance
In a moment's time
Across a grand expanse
A pool like eyes
Beheld in blue
Gaze up at the sky
From down below
The surface glistens
Depths are concealed
Yet 'spite the blinding light
Blurred forms reveal;
Such wonders manifest in motion...

That is the sea...
That is...
The ocean

So Beautiful - Poem
The gentle rising of a chest
A warm breeze blows a soft breathed breath
Sunlight seeps through the window pane
And lips sweetly whisper your name
Eyes awide abandon sleep
Yet do not do so reluctantly
A smile creased - the corners fold
A sight beheld - so beautiful
And all at once a tear doth fall
Not in regret, but instead in awe
For what wonder is felt within my soul
Knowing you are mine... and I am yours

Affinity - Poem
Sitting seated in the silence
Downcast - yet my heart rose
When a quiet figure stood beside me
After in the room he strode
His appearance was unusual
Not in a way one could describe
Perhaps it was in the way he moved
Or that distant look held in his eyes
Suddenly he caught me staring
And he smiled pleasantly
I turned away, moments too late
To hide the color in my cheeks
His voice was warm - sweet to the ear
And he asked me for my name
But for all the stumblings of my tongue
I had such trouble telling him
His gentle smile gave way to grin
And with a tender sort of air
He gestured to the seat across
And asked me if he could sit there
The permission shyly granted him
He filled the empty space
All at once - in that chair
Then slowly, softly into my heart
Until he was the only one in there
I'm always enchanted at the remembrance
Of this precious memory held so dear
It never fades, yet it is romanticized
A little more with each passing year...
Yet that is not to say that I recall things more

Never Fades - Poem
Struck still
Flames ignite
Icy chill
Dark - cast out by light
A fire burns
And shadows fall
When will you return?
Oh, where have you gone?
Ablaze in the midst of midnight air
Yet the wind blows cold
When you aren't here
I set the flame upon the wick
And as I look out
My lamp is lit
Like a habit I hopelessly pretend
This is the day you'll be back again
The warmth I spark dies with each passing day...
But your memory... No... That never fades

Once - Poem
Once I made a wish
That I could hold you for all time...
Once I made a wish
That I'd be yours and you'd be mine...
But like a flame that burns away
'Til it has nothing more to give
Put out by the dampness in the air
Before it had even kindled its last twig...
The hope that I once had
That I'd be yours and you'd be mine...
Met with the coldness of cruel fate...
And is now a memory... Lost to time

Literature
Say it First - Poem
Actions adversarial
By unconscious patterns 'justified'
More goes on beneath the surface
Than can be perceived by the eye
Like children adults bicker
'They started it!'
'Well, they did worse!'
Always looking to magnify... the other person's faults
But why point to another's errors, when you have also made you own?
The size or number of them, matters not - you were still wrong
Do you really think that pointing fingers will cause them to pause and reflect?
Tell me, has it ever actually worked when someone else - to you - did that?
By choosing to make them the enemy
You just push them farther away...
For so many years you've loved them
Yet you've forgotten it in your rage...
Trade your shouting in for silence
Your accusations for... 'I'm sorry'
Be honest, and consider first your own part in this story...
Just swallow up your pride...
Swallow up... your pain...
Cruel words aren't justified
Just 'cause they're saying the same things
Ask them

The Road to Redemption - Poem
Cruelly turned away
Almost affronted by your plea
Something between a vacant stare
And a glare of animosity
The road to redemption is fraught with doubt
Both from within, and yet still without
But they can't be blamed for their distrust
Considering the person that you were once
You willingly accept their vicious words
Believing that they are well-deserved
Ironic - that only now when you desire warmth
Does the coldness of their rejection truly hurt
Words die in your heart
That could not make it to your lips
Tears sting in your eyes
But do not have the time to drip
Their gazes averted
You are cast out; without even being moved...
Desperate to set things aright
Yet faced with not knowing how to...
How do you fix what can't be fixed?
How do you prove what can't be proved?
All that you have left is self
And the selfish things you chose to do
If only they could know your mind
If only they could see your soul!
If only you could turn back time
And repair everything that you once broke...

For You - Poem
I tirelessly seek the unreachable
Exhausted - I begin to fade away
Yet giving in would be unspeakable
So I persist in doing as they say
The world has such a strange idea of success
Just what it is and everything it means
They push and shove to prove who is the best
They aren't contented with the simple things
Just when did sensitivity become weakness?
When did a scruple mean: unflexible?
Stay strong, push on! You really need this!
But at this cost; I'm suddenly not so sure...
Feeling your hand in my hand
Hearing a sweet trill in the air
A softness aglow
Warmth within - I am home
And letting go is how I get there
Though some may claw and kick
And choose to beat each other down
At least we know what living really is
And see the beauty all around
With the crackling of leaves
We race on through to the sky
The sun descends unto deep
And I get lost in the stars in your eyes
In passing moments I'll abide by the chaos
And I'll do what's right to do...
But I just hope you really k

Whispering Breeze - Poem
Weightlessly descending afloat in the air
Touch down upon Earth; Its softly flowing green hair
The breeze brushes by you
It teases...
It breathes...
You turn as it beckons...

But there is no one to see

How Precious You Are - Poem
In time we may start to accept things in passive
And begin to take everyday miracles for granted
The emotion, the thrill, the surprise...
Until at last their full fading causes passion to die
Yet with the knowledge that I possess human frailty
It is my fondest wish to prevent this reality
I pray I never lose sight of your beauty for flaws
And that I endeavor, to ever, love you just as you are
I aspire to see you every day with new eyes
That I may yet again feel my heart leap with joyful surprise;
That someone as wondrous as you, and so lovely
With every choice you could choose, you decided to love me
I want that thought to be ever forefront in my heart...
So that I may never forget... just how precious you are

The Darkest Night - Poem
Silence solemn fills the empty halls
And stillness envelopes one and all
Sturdy, burly, and carved of oak
On hinges brass, wood doors are closed
Carpet thick and deep and shag
Upon which not a soul will tread
Lost to an age marked in the heart
A figure sits, hunched in the dark
Just for a moment time is unfroze
As a single tear rolls down alongside her nose
She is longing for the warmth found in the yesteryear
When smiling eyes and laughter were to be found everywhere
But now those joys are in the past
As the hope she knew faded so fast
These walls that had at once risen to cast out the cold
Now only serve to banish the warmth
And it is such a cruel irony that what was meant to protect
Now only conceals silent cries of loneliness
Though at once the thought occurred to her she should leave
There came the realization that time had weighed on her too heavily
And so here she remains... like a relic of the past
Only ever to be loved, when people stop to think back
But not in a way that she

Unrequited - Poem
I feel an embrace
But its warmth is so unlike yours
A hot drink in my hand
Yet drinking won't quench my thirst
An emptiness lingers
Even with so much that's full
How selfish I am
Such joy, yet I wallow in hurt
Just why is everything lacking?
Anyways, what was so great about you?
It's like mourning over the loss of a snowflake
When there are still thousands more
It doesn't make sense
So I should not be in pain
Yet I keep thinking of way back when
Hoping to somehow see you again
I feel like I'm hollow
But I know it's not true
I feel like I'm broken
Yet the mirror tells me I'm whole
I want someone to empathize with my situation
But whenever I think to speak
It seems too minor to mention
A bond left unspoken
Now I can't be sure it was formed
I keep recalling the sound of your laughter
And the sight of your smile...
You kindly offering me your arm
I think without even meaning to
I gave you every piece of my heart
And without even knowing it
You broke every part
Sometimes I blame you
And end

A Fantasy - Poem
The manifestation of my sweetest delusions
So free of frustration
A perfect concentration
So pure
A creation of my imagination for sure
For how else could there be somebody so beautiful?
Your presence does not cast out my solitude
Yet I am not alone when I'm next to you
The words that you speak
They are so sweet
Yet still by me in silence
You convey more than speech
And every distant hope and dream
Now has a face
Now has a name
So lost in the vibrancy of the afterglow
From when two spirits met and became one soul
So many moments converge into another in time
When a promise was fulfilled and you became mine
Being alone is now just a faded memory
As is the emptiness of persistent agonies
A gift from the heavens
So gently bestowed
Like the soft touch of a raindrop
Or a whisper of warmth
Finally I open my eyes and readily embrace the reality
You are here with me...

You are no longer a fantasy

Home - Poem
Soft, quiet, tranquil
In this moment
Ever thankful
Lovely, comfort, calming
Oh so peaceful
Gone is longing
Enraptured in this warm embrace
Contented spirit
Smiling face
Aptly lost in pleasant reverie
I am at ease
Because you are next to me
The emptiness I'd felt is gone
I am with you...
I'm finally home

Meant to Be - Poem
Look at all of these people
Their innumerable mistakes
Every word and every action
Makes another's heart ache
Hands that were meant to be healing are hurting
Eyes that were meant to see beauty see flaws
Hearts that were meant to be beating are breaking
And minds that were meant to be thinking are not
They only consider the whole picture
To state how insignificant their part is
Saying "If I did my best to shine out
Then who would even notice it?"
So they push...
And they pull...
'Cause they say no one...
In this whole world...
Can make all the difference
Against odds so insurmountable...
Better to take all that you can
Then to give it all away
Better to grab up all your share
Then to end up with nothing
But in accepting reality
They don't acknowledge potential change
They give up
Because it's too hard
To do what they know is the right thing
And like a glass that's lying empty
Or a work of art that's left unseen
By choosing to conform to the masses
They never become all that they could b

Despair in The Downpour - Poem
A translucent shield only light can pierce
Dripping droplets pitter pattering so fierce
The ripples roll off the curvature and fall
Like boundless buckets flowing constant, pressing hard
The weight is heavy but the tempest cannot last
The wind has dropped away and in firmness I'm stuck fast
My eyes search the horizon but a screen of water blocks my view
I cannot discern a shape with all the variance in hues
A bitter intake of breath
Perhaps I have been too displaced
Although I have not forgotten
Like hope - sweet memories can fade
The warbling of a lark at the gentle rising of the sun
In my mind's eye I see your face, only to open my eyes and find it gone
A tear descends like a message enamored - a bottle cast into the sea
But in the expanse of rainy depths, can you find it? Can you find me?
I hang my head and shake
I tremble - lost, alone, and cold
But perhaps this is my destiny?
A prophecy once left unforetold?
My agony accumulates into a roar I can't release
Beneath my burdens and m

Rippling waters like satin folds
Bend to the breeze that blows gentle
Like a whisper warm, waves wash ashore
And sands soft embraced; recede once more

The sun fair shines from sky above
It's rays of light so bright, my love
Reflections shimmering
A crystalline dance
In a moment's time
Across a grand expanse

A pool like eyes
Beheld in blue
Gaze up at the sky
From down below

The surface glistens
Depths are concealed
Yet 'spite the blinding light
Blurred forms reveal;
Such wonders manifest in motion...


That is the sea...



That is...



The ocean
The gentle rising of a chest
A warm breeze blows a soft breathed breath
Sunlight seeps through the window pane
And lips sweetly whisper your name

Eyes awide abandon sleep
Yet do not do so reluctantly
A smile creased - the corners fold
A sight beheld - so beautiful

And all at once a tear doth fall
Not in regret, but instead in awe
For what wonder is felt within my soul
Knowing you are mine... and I am yours
Sitting seated in the silence
Downcast - yet my heart rose
When a quiet figure stood beside me
After in the room he strode

His appearance was unusual
Not in a way one could describe
Perhaps it was in the way he moved
Or that distant look held in his eyes

Suddenly he caught me staring
And he smiled pleasantly
I turned away, moments too late
To hide the color in my cheeks

His voice was warm - sweet to the ear
And he asked me for my name
But for all the stumblings of my tongue
I had such trouble telling him

His gentle smile gave way to grin
And with a tender sort of air
He gestured to the seat across
And asked me if he could sit there

The permission shyly granted him
He filled the empty space
All at once - in that chair
Then slowly, softly into my heart
Until he was the only one in there

I'm always enchanted at the remembrance
Of this precious memory held so dear
It never fades, yet it is romanticized
A little more with each passing year...

Yet that is not to say that I recall things more inaccurate...
But that proportional to our love that grows
All the more fondly I remember it...

And even if I could forget
How our love came to be...
I never would; the person I met...
Who took that seat across from me
Struck still
Flames ignite
Icy chill
Dark - cast out by light

A fire burns
And shadows fall
When will you return?
Oh, where have you gone?

Ablaze in the midst of midnight air
Yet the wind blows cold
When you aren't here

I set the flame upon the wick
And as I look out
My lamp is lit

Like a habit I hopelessly pretend
This is the day you'll be back again

The warmth I spark dies with each passing day...

But your memory... No... That never fades
