harboring secrets

no one could see
behind her porcelain face
or his boy next door eyes
no one saw past her pretty smile
or his loud boisterous laugh
beyond those warm eyes
they all harbor secrets
imprisoned behind bars
so no words can escape
through mouths

I get lost

I get lost
in daydreams
when I want
to escape
the chaos 
of daily life
I only wish
I could get
lost in you
all day and night
making this life
a bit sweeter

last time

when we said goodbye
on that mid-June evening
neither one of us knew
it would be the last time

it was the last time
I would kiss your lips
and you would watch me
drive off into a setting sun

and yet it was and 
have since moved on
driving into new sunsets

a morning with you

a morning with you
beats any holiday
cuddling in your arms is,
dare I say, heavenly
everyone may say I’m a
fool in love, but that’s okay

- Written for dVerse Meeting The Bar:School Days where we are tasked in writing an alphabet sestet.  This was a bit harder than I imagined, but I imagined to come up with this one.

quick –
let us run away
from this mundane race
chasing paper that will
never be enough
let us get lost
in sunrises and sunsets
sing songs with the seas
let the clouds carry us off
towards warm horizons 
where no hurt can reach us

- Written for dVerse Quadrille #64-Quick!Write Something!

I wish I found you

I wish I found you
years ago
before my heart
was cleaved in two
I wish I found you
years ago
when I still held
hope for love

but now I feel
it’s too late
my heart has turned
into stone 
and now I feel
you’re too late
to make me believe
in love again

if only the Fates
let me find you sooner
we could have been
painting the sky
instead of writing
sad goodbyes

the risk

my mind says don't take
the risk - the stakes are too great
but my heart says yes

so I take the plunge
into mysterious mists
and hope for the best
