She sat at the window

Lost in her thoughts

Dreaming of him

And their time together

Her reverie was blissful

Like the kisses they shared

But soon she was left to wonder

Why he had said goodbye

She loses herself often

In these thoughts of yesterday

But always turns back to

The lonely truth of today

And hopes beyond hope

They will find the way back

To the dreams they once shared

And the passion that fueled them

Tired Of Dieting

Photo by on

Nourish my heart

Feed me your love

Let me quench this thirst

For someone who cares

I’ve starved for years

With an unanswered hunger

Famished of the basic needs

Of comforting words from another

It is a case of simple survival

Please feed me your love

Everything To Me

Photo by Francesca Zama on

You speak harshly

Instead of a caring voice

Like you are my boss


You are everything to me

A bond that I can never sever


You treat me like a stranger

Instead of your blood

Like I am a burden in your life


You are everything to me

A place in my heart forever


You are taking steps away

Instead of back to me

Like your independence is complete


You are everything to me

A place here to come home to always

Oh My

Photo by cottonbro on

To my amusement

You made me laugh

And friendship did arrive

To my delight

You kissed my cheek

And romance began to bloom

To my pleasure

You filled my desires

And love entered my heart

To my surprise

You loved me too

And marriage swept us up

To my amazement

You began to drink

And distrust became the norm

To my dismay

You left our home

And sadness filled my heart

To my disappointment

You filed for divorce

And our marriage was erased

To my shock

You drank more

And death took you away

Closer Friends

Photo by cottonbro on

It was an intimate moment

Shared between friends

Who care deeply for one another

The were both virtually alone

Ignored by the one who should care

They turned to each other

To share in their desires

To quench a growing thirst

It didn’t change their friendship

It didn’t stop them

From loving the ones at home

It just filled a void in their lives

And made the future bright again

A Smile

Photo by Pixabay on

Take a minute

Can you think about me

Do you have it in you

To wonder how I am

Do you ever want to

Just send me a text

Or am I a thought

That you often avoid

To shut out of your mind

What we used to have

I only wonder because

I so very often

Still dream about you

And I wonder if you ever

Have a memory of me

That brings a smile to your face

The Perfect Bling

Photo by Designecologist on

Dressing up tonight I realize

I don’t have a model’s style

I won’t have diamonds

Dripping off of me

Or pearls draped

Around my neck

But I have one thing

That provides more beauty

Then anything shiny ever could

You adorn my heart with your love

I look out over the ocean at your silhouette

I am in awe of how you complete me so well

The tenderness in your touch

Your optimistic outlook on life

The knowledge you guide me with

Your lighthearted soul I love to laugh with

The passion in your kisses that leaves me breathless

Without you I would never have found my heart again

After it got shattered by another’s thoughtless ways

You do so much more than complete me

You love me

My eyes look brightest

Whenever I see you

My heart cries out

To beat only for you

My entire body

Yearns to be near you

I speak “I love you”

It falls on deaf ears

It is ridiculous

How much I need you

And you don’t even care

Found and Lost

Photo by manu mangalassery on

We walked the park in the dark

Stopping every now and then

To embrace each other

And share in another kiss

My heart was overflowing

With feelings of a new found love


Months passed by

We still walked the park

We still loved the feel

And the taste of each other

My heart was filled

With love for you


Abruptly the park closed

We struggled to touch

Caught up in life

And too comfortable with each other

My heart was breaking

With the draining of love


Years later I still miss

Walking with you

We had a whirl wind romance

I felt a real love

My heart still yearns for

What my life has lost
