Yearning…

The house at the

end of the lane

calls to me

A light coming

through the back

door reminds me

of home…

but — a home I

have never known

 

I feel them sitting

there in the kitchen

sharing their day…

watching TV…

laughing…

winding down for

the night as I  pass

by yet again feeling

drawn … yet, am

not allowed to enter

a pull to my soul

a longing for something…

something just out

of my reach

but something

I need…

I want…

The family I

have never had

Nor will ever have…

Gone Again…

It happened again
last night…
I dreamed you were
still here…
still alive…
 
You gently and 
sweetly cradled me 
in your arms
Reassured me things
would be fine
 
For a brief moment
I was happy
Until…
This morning when
the dreams and
you were both
Gone…

Courage

A Deep Breath
A Side-long Glance
Courage…
 
Or…
 
Folly…
 
Do I dare?
 
In the end
my shyness
takes over
 
Then…
 
With another
quick glance
I turn
And…
Walk Away…

Unified…

Your scent still lingers
on the rose-colored pillow case
you detested…
On your tuxedo shirt and
felted Western hat
 
Breathing deeply…
The memories flood in
And…
I cry
 
Like Cohen wrote…
“… the heart is a rage
of directions…”*
there is no Mercy
 
I refuse to wash
that shirt or pillow case
The only pieces of you
that remain
 
I wear the hat when
the missing becomes 
too much
 
Your scent…
My raging heart
Unified…

*The follow line from Leonard Cohen’s poem #50 The Book of Mercy was my inspiration today.
 
” … the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart …”

Someday…

Someday…
Life will be
Different
Secrets will be
Revealed
Trust will be
the Norm
Not…
the hoped for
 
Someday…
You and I
will not hide
from each other
 
Someday…
You and I 
will not ignore
what we feel
 
But…
 
Embrace our
friendship openly

Release…

Outside…
An early morning storm
is raging
 
Inside…
my head…
my heart…
an internal storm
is building
 
Thunder rolls…
And…
Lightning crackles
Ozone in the air
 
Hair on m arms
stands on end as 
my response
As I wait…
Begging for  the
Storm to Break
 
The Earth
and I
Both need
Release…

Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days

Gone are the times
Those summer days
When all we needed
was one another
 
Halcyon Days…
That left us hungry
Yet…
Only for each other
That left us thirsty
Yet…
The only quench was
a deep kiss
 
We only needed
love…
laughter…
sun…
And ~
time…
 
Days spent in
each other’s arms
The only solace…
The only need…
The only respite…
 
Youth spent
Yet ~
Wants…
Needs…
Desires…
Still the same
 
I long for those days
Those Halcyon Days…
Wrapped in your strong arms
Holding me…
Leading me…
Teaching me…
to live my life
Enjoy myself to
the fullest
To love…
 
Old does not
mean aged…
Nor forgetful
of what once was
 
Old…
gives those memories
those days of youth
spent in love and longing…
desire and fulfillment
 
Searching still for the
will and passion to continue

Some Days …

There are times when
everything goes right
 
But…
 
Everything is 
Wrong…
 
Little things just
not aligned with the
Universe
 
Not comfortable
in our own skin
 
Irritations…
Accidents…
 
And…
 
Life goes on

Good Things

Mama always said,
“Good things come to
those who wait!”
 
Her wisdom has 
always led me in
the right direction…
If only I believe…
If only I am
Patient…
 
Waiting isn’t easy
But…
It does pay off
in the long run…
