Clouds on the Ground

Driving in Fog

Clouds on the Ground

Always unexpected…

Thin…

Pea Soup…

Patchy…

Fleeting…

OR

Full Blown

FOG…

Always…

High Tide

Leave a comment

A chilly November evening

Dinner under the stars

An outside deck

with heated air

AND

A view of the beach

Waves crashing as the tide rises

Good food, excellent wine and perfect companions

Listening to the waves as they crash the beach

We reflect on our trip…

our time together…

memories…

Lingering over coffee and brandy

Knowing to leave means the trip ends

Yet we must return to reality…

our lives…

work responsibilities

But

That is tomorrow

Now

We hold tightly to dreams of the night

Shadows

Shadows

Shadows…that one word…

Powerful…

Scary…

Fun…

Mysterious…

Intrigue for most

Horror for some

A feeling of anticipation and fun

OR

Deep loss and down right

Scared To Death

Shadows…

You must decide

Where will they take you?

How will you accept them?

Who are you because of them?

Shadows…

Hiding inside…protected

Looking to the outside…

But…

Never venturing forth

Shadows…

Leaving them…

For the light…

For love…

For the adventure

Of

The Outside

I Believed ~

I believed you ~

When you courted me

With words of love and passion

I believed you ~

When you said no strings attached

Only a mature…

friendship…

relationship…

sharing…

I believed you~

When you said there was no one else

No one you thought of but me

I believed you~

When you encouraged me

Tempted me with your words and dreams

I believed you ~

When you said the issues were not

about me, but yours alone

I believed you ~

In all things…

Your promises … were lies

Your words … were deceptions

Your actions … were false

I believed you~

When you said you

Cared too much

I believed you~

AND

That is where

I went WRONG

casual rape

Leave a comment

I intended for this website to be poetry only, but this needs to be read, passed along and raise awareness of sexual harassment at school between students.

girl in the hat


Last Friday at school, a boy walked up behind my daughter, put his hand on her shoulder and said, “Did you know that 99% of all rapes begin with some kind of casual contact?”

Pause for a moment.  Let it sink in. 

The hand on her shoulder.  The word “rape” mouthed so casually.  Her surprise.  Her attempt to brush it off.  The snide look on his face. The boys in the background, snickering or pretending not to hear.  The utter absence of allies or adults.  The snide look on his face.  The hand on her shoulder.    

This is not the first time this boy has harassed my daughter.  Ever since the beginning of the year, this boy has been making verbal jabs in her direction.  When she participates in classroom discussion, he derides her. He says mean, untrue things about her to his friends. He comments on what…

No End Game

You…lost your mind

that Sunday it happened

You broke my Heart

Out of the Blue

No warning…

No reasons…

No explanation…

Just…Broken

Without Respect

My Life immediately

Turned…

And…right then…right there…at that time…

I knew…there really

Was…No…End…Game

Only Pain

Dreams

They follow me…

always there…

always trying to get my attention

Why won’t they leave me alone?

Dreams that are not my own

Pushing me…

Pulling me…

Trying to convenience me to

Follow them…

Believe in them…

To change…

To become what they would have me be

Dreams can be cunning things

Leading me astray

Inserting themselves into

my Reality

Becoming more real than life itself

What do I do?

Follow them…

Become what they would have me be

Perhaps…in following I will

Find who I am meant to be

Before the Dawn

Leave a comment

Before the Dawn

That special time just before

Sunrise…

The break of day

Peaceful…

That total quiet before

the World wakes

and starts the day

This hour between

dark and light

This time of peace and quiet is…

My time…

A time of…

Reflection…

Planning…

Determining what the day will bring…

Can bring…

Will bring…

No expectations…

Just let life play out

as it will

Take each minute

as it comes

Gathering them into

Hours to

Greet the Day!

Promises … Broken!

Broken Promises

Promises … Broken

 Promises – Broken…

You said you love me…

You said you would…

Be honest…

Faithful…

True…

I knew this was something

Too good

To Be True

Every promise…

Broken

As you looked me

Straight in the eye

And lied.
