Escape

From the time I
could read on my own…
I have had my
nose in a book
 
I became a
super sleuth
with not only
Nancy Drew but
Trixie Belden
 
This lead to 
Patricia Cornwell…
Sue Grafton…
And 
James Patterson
when I got older
 
I am an eclectic
reader and love
many different genres…
From Laurell Kay Hamilton
hunting vampires with Anita
to Diana Gabaldon traveling
through time with
Claire and Jamie
 
Too many favorite 
authors to list 
Let it be known
I love books…
I love words…
I love to read
 
Books were there 
for me all my life
giving me experiences…
adventures…
Showing me an 
Escape into different
worlds…
minds…
all making me feel
special
 
And
 
A chance to 
turn my life off
for and hour 
or so and just 
BE!

The Trip

Looking back…
things were not
as bad as they seemed
during that time
of my life
 
A gentler…
simpler…
time
A time I would love
to live again.
 
The Sages tell us
“we can’t go back”
 
My question is:
Why not?
I know it can never
be the same
But —
almost…
bearable…
livable…
 
Don’t tell me I
cannot return because
it takes too long
 
I must…
The  journey
is worth the
Time

Leftovers

A drawer full
of things
this and that
t-shirt, socks and
underwear
 
Jeans and a
couple of shirts
left in the closet
 
All forgotten
just like
ME
 
All reminders of
the life we had
And…
No longer
Have
 
This was written listening to Mary Chapin Carpenter’s Almost Home.  It has been included below…enjoy.

Late

I stepped from
the shower
warm…
good smelling…
dripping wet…
 
You…
couldn’t keep your hands
to your self
So…
back to the shower
 
Sensual…
sexy…
warm…
smooth…
slipper…
and…
a mutual bath
 
Unexpected pleasure…
Now…
we are late
for our own
Party!

Christmas Gazing

Christmas Gazing

Christmas decorations everywhere
And…
It’s not even Thanksgiving
What is the world
coming to?
 
Suddenly something in a
shop window caught
my eye…
Something shiny…
 
The most Perfect
ornament…
The light shining 
through it and
sparkling off it
Reminded me of
a miniature
Gazing Ball
 
I may have
to have that…
Place it in an area
of prominence…
on a display stand
so the light shines
through it 
And…
Plays around it 
in all it’s beauty
 
Merry Christmas
to Me!

Fault Line

Supplication…
is not always
a prayer
 
It is a giving
a total …
complete
release of
Emotions
 
A giving of yourself
to the only one who
understands what
lies deep within your
Soul

That Chance

That Chance

We met  by chance
More alike than different
The same vintage
Loved the same
music…
books…
movies…
 
Finished one another’s
sentences…
Laughed hysterically
at nothing
And
everything
 
Who could imagine
out of all the people
we would find
each other
 
That day…
standing in line for coffee
something neither of us
Ever did…
Yet –
both were out
of coffee at home
 
Spent the entire
morning drinking
cup after cup
And
Filling the gaps
of a
Lifetime!

The Right Love

The Right Love

I spent my life
searching for that
right person…
The one who could match
my fire…
my passion…
my drive…
 
Wasted years thinking…
is that all there is?
 
Hoped it would be
possible to find a match
But…
in the end …
no one even close 
to my
wants…
needs…
fire…
 
Until you…
then I knew the
meaning of
“the right kind of love”*
that compatibility
meeting me equally
in —
passion…
sensuality…
sexuality…
need…
desire…
 
The One who completed me
the one I could give…
“a piece of my life!”*

Day and Night

Until now…
This very minute…
At this time in my life
I only now realized
You are my first thought
in the morning
And…
My last thought
every night
 
You have such a
special place in my life
A different…
Unusual…
Unique…
kind of love
 
Our time together
is precious
Yet…
Limited…
Brief…
 
We both make the most…
the best… 
of that time
And…
What each has 
to give…
to share…
to feel…
 
I love you for
your mind…
your wit…
As well as your
enthusiasm…
And desire…
of me…
for me…
that no one has
ever had
 
You bring out my best
You tell me I am
intelligent…
sexy…
Classy…
 
No one has ever 
said those things of me…
made me feel special…
but you…
 
You give me 
affirmation…
and 
respect…
which is 
Love

Another Hotel Room

Another Hotel Room

Alone again…
Traveling…
 
A new city
Yet…
All the hotel rooms 
are the same
 
Functional
But…
Cold…
Unfeeling…
Devoid of personal warmth
 
I call…
You don’t answer…
Message left…
 
Alone with my thoughts
In another
strange city…
strange room…
Empty bed…
