I Will Wait for Thee

Oh he crushed my breath in his Then he pledged his life anew As we lay there through the night Waking immersed in morning dew Oh! my love I will wait for thee ‘Til I draw my last sleep I will never forsake nor Will I rue my promise to wait for thee. August 6, […]

Caring

Her strong voice commanded Strength, direction, and sureness Followed by a hint of kindness At the beginning of our medical interview Prior to surgery in a teaching hospital. As things progressed her voice and eyes Changed Becoming clouded with interest and hauntings Of a berceuse, a lullaby of caring concern. In the end we were […]

Sentry of the Heart

He is a Roman coin taking on human form A mass of silver curls Sits atop his noble head He smiles kindly as the catchlights in his eyes fire with warmth His chin raised in triumph. His skin is golden and calms the harshness of reality A full beard neatly frames his face He is […]

And Yet . . .

The adoration that dwells within me ~ Fills me to overflowing Turns my limbs to mush A’quivering ‘neath the grand sky Of long sought-after harmony. And yet, still I wonder Is this love? Is this my heart’s symphony? A symphony of longing For all to be free And joyous And true. And yet, mine? February […]

Clear

Commit your heart to clarity I beg of you my love It does not become you To be obtuse or foggy. In your proclamation of adoration In your desire to be vague yet comical In your quest to conquer the unfathomable I beg of you try again. Be full of life and exhort the thrills […]

Changes

Is it something ill-defined? Or could it be an abyss? Unfathomable? Maybe it’s the energy of the moon (la luna)? Perhaps time has caused it to grow cold? I do not know. Only that my heart feels dead and I could not respond to intimacy. No light, no eye contact, no magic oil. A bit […]

Lack

Tumbling sliding immersing Blinding swiping recoiling The finding and looking then stealing A tiny fabric of comfort called home or Where I belong A tiny piece of regard A tiny piece of self proclamation A piece Small way to matter. A small way to journey toward something that counts A small way to heal a […]

He

  His voice said Come His eyes said Stay His mouth whispered of peaks and castle tops His hands implored Honor my touch. I ask Who are you? I ask How did you know of my hunger? I sang of love dying and lost I beat the death march on my drum. He said I am […]

Away

Swaddled thoughts of your voice Drip slowly between the mosaic memories of our moments ~ sequestered ’round a lamented book of atonement and adoration ~ Seemingly hidden themes of extreme provocation dance and twirl and rumble away. Senselessly away. March 22, 2017

In the Name of Love

Hah! I know you and your song to a lost love of passion; Hah! You’re still in love with her And you’ll NEVER GET OVER HER! So… How does that leave you? It leaves you A better man A more loving man A man who takes nothing for granted A man who notices the details […]

Breaking

  Beneath the quadruple bypass Surrounding his stellar heart Breaking from a world Clumsily full of expectations He watches He waits He harbors and hides his life quests From all who adore him. July 31, 2016 Yankeetown Florida USA

What The River Told Me

The wake will not The lightening will not The tiniest shell will not Or creature. The rain comes to wash the tears of God Into platelets of torn Forlorn hearts. How can this be? That Thou can see Our every stumble Every pause? July 15, 2016 Yankeetown florida USA The River

Soon

There’s a hole in my bed where we slept. I leave a light on just in case you come. And sometimes I set a place for you at the table. You never come. Still, I listen for your sound at the door. You never come. I can feel your breath crossing my heart. I can […]
