Seminole Moon

Ol’ gypsy moon

Mother of the Seminole

Find my lost lover

Rescue my weary soul

Fill me with calming peace

Heal me from the hate

Give my lover courage

Let your glow illuminate

Two lives separated

But connected by your tide

Hear my pleading prayer, ol’ moon

Bring me back to life

Pull his heart closer

Remind him of my love

Give him my many kisses

Blown to you up above

Ol’ gypsy moon

Send my lover back my way

My only wish tonight

Is bring him back to stay

Ol’ gypsy moon

Wipe my tears away

Reunite what’s been lost

I can’t live without him another day.

Hate-ship

Gaslight my sunset days red

Striking matches wet with tears

While herding my goats

With a charming conniving smile

 

Passion burns bridges blue

Intensity of the highest hate

Frosting warm hearts

In condescending icy dew

 

Forgiveness is divine

While hate is the  unsung lullaby

Lived daily

By megalomaniacs

 

Burn me quicker

Than whispered prayers

Bitter berries ripe

Sow seeds of instability

 

Jealousy impersonates

Ventriloquist’s throw voices

Sabotaging bouquet’s all simultaneously

From corners of poisoned lips

 

Toxicity drowns lights rays

Sucking a noodle’s gravity from black-holes

My hope struggles to flicker SOS

To to the refugee’s of humanity

 

Colors smudge muddy, I see you for what you are

Prideful honor hunts vanity

But yet I remain mute

Tongue crippled by a cat’s confusion

 

My silence seen as frailty

Gives you grins of murmured mirth

I lick flesh wounds salty for strength

Beginning an underdog’s rebellion of stymies

 

Armored to know your beast

I once was loyal friend and cared

Recrimination unadulterated prepared

Vengeance of disregard will be an egocentrics hell

My Song

Even though we are far apart

You are the song that keeps singing inside my heart

A complex aria of perfect melody

Sings to my soul of our fated destiny

My heart was born beating along to your tune

Captivating me by the seductive light of the river moon

Singing me lullabies you help me sleep

Until your return, I will love you deep

Sing to me in dreams and hold to my hand

Keeping me safe without you, in this heart lonely land

~m

 

 

Lights Promise

Somehow finding myself colored in lights

From still holding onto your love, set inside me so tight

More intense faith than I have ever experienced

Someone greater than any cause, but in the dark mysterious

Letting go is not an option possible

Odds of failure click off astronomical

Thoughts bring you complete, happily forefront

Truth spoken, but tough softness is blunt

Everyday now I’m unable to surpress

Or my emotions even allowed respite, or  be repressed

Comfort happens and finds me to thrive

Still you linger here, only the physical deprived

With you here talking to me through so many signs

It proves my truth of enlightenment, and secures belief sublime

The bond that was sewn to connect us through the spaces between

Will withstand times hurts of separation, and will be my reprieve

I know I will hold your face gently in my hands

Patience and growth must happen first,  so we can start to understand

Compass

Cats bark secrets

At hidden new moons

Bringing back memories

Always gone too soon

Senior’s first word

Beginning at the end

Hangs white poignant stars

To midnight’s curtains thinned

Unicorn knelling loudly

In prayer, just out of sight

Guarding suns treasured magic

For dreams to take flight

The world keeps spinning dizzy

Turning my square chaos around

Searching for you, comes empty

My heart pleads to be found

But still, I hear your voice

Compass, introduced at our birth

Anchoring connate knowledge

You….

are my true magnetic north

 

~m

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Can Still

After all this time,

It is in the highest

Respect of regards

That I can still

Wonder at

Your fragile

Human beauty

And shield it

Protectively within

My wounded

But forever hopeful

heart.

 

It is there,

That I can still,

Remember

And

Wait for you.

Marionette of Love

 

Image result for michael cheval paintings(Basket of Love- by Michael Cheval)

 

We are the puppets of star-crossed love

Twisting together

Involuntarily, perfectly fit

Achieving, higher celestial emotion

Completing double-hearted acrobatics

With somersaulting churns,

Competing for the twinkle of stars

Given the medals of the Universe

Rare chemistry fizzes excitement

That binds eternal

Dragging us toward one another

Through space, time and hell

Magnetizing

Around your carousel pinky

I will dance rings around roses

Entwining sui generis

Jigsaw fingers imprint

I dance to you

Together we fuse

Made to enhance ascensions experience

Grabbing at death-defying gravity

Securing comforts unrecognized

Out running the odds of loss

Laughing in delight, in the face of fate

We are champions of our marathons

Existing to conquer the disbeliving

While the Universe pulls our strings

We love despite adversity.

 

I will be a doll

Center stage

And, all in such a dainty and fragile universe

 

It is you, I will always dance for.

The tip taste of our souls melded

Has left me unable to be ordinary

 

I have found my home.

Where my heart strings connect.

Home where my soul is at peace

With you my soul is strongest

With you my soul is smartest

With you-

It is where I belong

 

I will wait,

Crouched in the rafters

My strings have gone loose

Awaiting your return

Awaiting to dance in love again

 

~m

 

 

 

 

Shell

 

Filled wherein

Of haunted whispers

Of crashing waves

Shell twisting

Tight swirls

Housing emotions

Of churning memories

Losing me at sea…

Of tan lined love

And

Of belonging only to you.

 

I sit sunbathe

Tumbled worn smooth

Now on distant sandy shores.

In salty stillnesses

Remaining in your wake.

Wistfully thrown aside

In glass

Corked tight

Into the turbulent,

Surf of life.

 

Alone.

 

A vacant shell.

 

Waiting to be collected.

 

~m

Anticipation

Gentle warm breezes

Exhaled from your sweet breathy sighs

Leave my knees shaky

Each touch brings me nigh

 

Cresting skyscrapers heights

On secure house of cards

My breathless catches

Always deliver you hard

 

Tender words are waited

Pinned gently to my tulle

Unlatching primitive secrets

Begging to be a lovers fool

 

Magically unstable skipping

Of each thump of heart beat

Leaves us delirious in lust

Engulfed in carnal heat

 

Never being sated

Fervently I will beseech

Anticipation unravels passion

Before the center is ever reached
