Never Quite Full

The glass is never quite full
only half
of what I believe I deserve
falls to me

I drink of what I’m given
but thirst
for so much more


In The Rain

I met you in the rain
you saw me hiding
saw my neglected soul
I still remember your eyes
soft and hazel
and loving

You asked me
if I was okay
the most beautiful words
I’d ever heard

Nobody asked before
not one cared
if I still knew I was alive

And now
you are a distant
cherished memory
and your love
lingers with me

How Life Appears

10860-woman-in-the-mirror-1920x1080-fantasy-wallpaperWhat I see
is not what is at all

I look
and tell myself tales
of how life appears
of where I’ve been
and where I’m going

That’s the trouble
with a writing mind
you never know
what part of it
you should believe

deep breath
I listen
to the daisies
chit and chatter

Flowers speak
but only offer words
to those
who have nature ears

like the moon
you were radiant
like the night star
filled me with love
I had never known

Now I think of you
each full moon
eternally grateful
for the touch
of your flawless soul
without you
I would not be



It passed me by
barely brushing
almost unseen
touching soul
radiant in love
purifying my mind
I am elevated
I am renewed

The Darkest Place


You lead me
far from home
you enticed me
to your private game
you abandoned me
in the darkest place

It’s taken time
to discover the way
to emerge
from black to white
I have found the light
and left you
to your discoloured world

Secret Vaults


What the eye sees
it does not wish to tell
vision remains
in secret vaults
and time
scatters dust
over all
