Entreat

He spoke my name in whispers,

With a simple blistering kiss.

Etching my soul to yearn,

Reaching our forgotten reminisce.

 

Eloquent of humanity,

Recognition of his blood.

Lip upon lip:

I knew it was him, the one that I loved.

 

Come to me, dream darling

Cross the bridge and awake!

Reunited incarnated souls;

We will save the world from hate.

Chuck Wills Widow

The lonely chuck-will’s-widow,

Calling of your name

In the evening twilight ticking air…

Marks time spent away

By the old oaks annual rings

She offers a gift, and sings to me her prayer.

She understands our emptiness

She sings to it, a sweet berceuse

To surround us in melody

Chasing away all our despair

I recognize our loneliness, together it mates

With sobering tweets and trills

And hope she knows I am here for her

The thought bring us both to tear

We no longer hold love so near

Else we move forward out of darkness together,

And displaces all alone the bugbear

Marking time in the darkness

Of the cold night veneer

In harmony, I hum her woeful song

Keeping hearts company threadbare

Together, her and I

Sing of the greatest of love affairs

Forget Me Not

In darken corners

Of bruised hearts

The Forget Me Not

Will sometimes mark

Graves of scars

In velvet cloak

Tattered by tears

From empty yoke

Fragile stems

Gone to seed

In lovers gardens

An unkempt weed

Overgrown

With wistful longing

The Forget Me Not

Blooms hope prolonging

Tender petals

In pale pastels

Enduring love

That never fails

Faithful flower

Bouquet of blossom

Inside my heart

You are never forgotten

Sacrifice

 

They come arching across night skies

With their trails of glitter

Following behind

And under breath

They whistle our love song sweet

 

They take cue

So we might dance

On their borrowed time

And dream

Of arms meant to hold us

And of hearts meant to beat

Butterflies

 

They do it all for our love

 

Delighted they grin at me

And wink in merry mischief

 

And I comprehend

In those silent gazes

While throwing wishes

The stars are in sparkle

For us they die

And happily fall from the sky

To give me a chance

Of dreams that come true

They unselfishly give their lives

All just so I can wish for you

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.

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

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

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.
