As my mother lie dying. I knew it was an ending. I knew that my sister
and I would now be the next generation. As I looked deep into the sweet brown eyes
I had always known, I said my goodbyes. Mommy I love you. I have always love you.
Taking her hand in mine I tried to reach her. But her eyes were focused elsewhere.
She knew me not. Perhaps she saw her savior. Perhaps she saw my father. I climbed into bed with her. Holding her tight. Telling her it was all right to go. And she left me.
gone to her reward
carried on sweet angels wings
to sit with her Lord
Gathering oak the color of drab winter
with summers soft membranes clinging still.
Limb by limb I stack the wood breathing hard.
Lady shakes her head snorting her displeasure
of the snow now falling around us. I work on
while clouds puff from my body in the misty cold.
I hear my voice echoing tinged with frost stay girl stay.
winters frost has come
wrapping us in biting cold
my voice echos ice
She walks the worn path one she had taken so many times.
Deeper into the forest seeking respite for the weary.
Here once a place of peace and eternity,now a paradise lost.
Still she searches for her kind. Here in nevermore where palaces
and gardens once bloomed. They are gone to the west leaving
nothing behind.Tears cascade down from her beautiful eyes as
sorrow fills her heart.Now she wanders alone amid a forest of graves.
She is lost forever for they are never to return.
a paradise lost
to time and sorrow forever
she walks alone now
River of poppies stream forth
red realm of beauty from field
to gate and beyond.
So lovely so alive free in the
wild of life. Free in the matters
of things. Free for all to see
and hold close forever.
Rich red red poppies lie close
to my heart. For they in death
are a part of you and me.
I think of him and wonder what went wrong.
We were bound together in love and happiness.
Two like souls intertwined forever.
I gave him the best of me and yet
it would seem it was not enough.
How do I live without him?
Simply walking on the paths we took
is too much for me.
I miss his arms around me.
I miss his kisses sweet.
I miss his body next to me
and I miss his tender love.
Time has not changed how I feel.
Time has not healed my heart.
He took the best of me and
left nothing to live on.
He took the best of me and left me to cry
I look into your eyes
and see eternity
my heart bleeds for you
but you care not
shall I give you my soul
my very being.
my life's plan
or should I forget you
and all your beautiful words
that thrill my being
let me go, let me love another
I cling to you as if we were lovers
yet I know you have forgotten me.
Like a spider's prey all caught up in words of love both cool and playful,he drew me
to him.Poetry my downfall. Woven tightly around me. Warp and weft he wove
his lovely words of desire and bound fast my heart. Long before I knew the sound of
his voice, the look in his eyes,the taste of his lips he had me trapped in love and need.There was no escape from this shimmering web. He fed on my on my flesh and my soul.
a spiders web holds
through nights of love and longing
and with the dawn breaks
left behind torn rent
drained of all my innocence
clutching wispy words
now meant for some other love
bloodless left to cry
beware those sweet words
beware those dark shining eyes
beware tides that bind.
oh my love, words we once spoke are forgotten
time, time so cruel so short and I can not remember
your touch your voice our loving together
would but time give back what it has taken
could I but know and taste our sweet murmurings once more
if you could but forgive my pride and take away my pain
I long to kiss your lips,feel your heat as we lie side by side again
you with your sly way have taken my heart
unthinking uncaring that now I am empty
my love pushed aside no longer needed
I will move on now parting in pain
oh careless lover you will forget me soon enough
Mist rises from the ocean's depth.
The sea, green gray, dark and deep.
Each wave rushes towards me, then
like a forlorn lover recedes again.
Sprites, sirens of the night call to me
as they dance upon the white foam.
Glittering in the darkness.
And I watch the enigmatic moonlight
change the tiny beings' colors, sliver gold.
As they like dancers in the dead of night,
leap from wave to wave.
Crystalline laughter echoes softly. Almost
lost in the surf's sound. My feet, naked, buried
deep within the sand that pervades my flesh with
And I wait.
Wait for the tide to once more slip slowly
back into the murky sea.
I wait and dawn breaks to warm my cold still body
his shape was bent and hollow
eyes softly glowing red
from whence he came
no one knew only fear kept his company
his skin blotched and worn
frightening more then a few early
morning libertine home from the pub
what creature was this shuffling with in the shadows
