let this love not be a disaster

let this love
not be a disaster
like crimson wine
on white carpets
or a category
five hurricane

let this love
be a beautiful
summer day
or the perfect
holiday gift

let this love
not be my
ending but
my beginning

lost and found

I was lost
in a sea
filled with fear
mixed with doom

with no hope
I closed my
eyes praying
for release

I was found
by your arms
gave me hope
once again

when he gazed at me
I felt like the only woman
in the room, despite the
loud chaos surrounding us
in this private conversation
he gave me a simple wink
stealing my breath and heart
away, causing me to fall
over cliffs head first

glorious November

the air was too warm
for the first of November
almost felt like spring
rather than mid-autumn
but I inhaled that glorious
air to savor it before
the return of fall’s chill

transitioning in circles

every time you leave
a part of me dies
I’m not sure whether
there will be anything
left the next time

you’re always changing
like the seasons
and by now I should
know the routine
down to the decimal

yet every spring
I fall in love
every summer I
get lost in your eyes
every autumn you
tell me goodbye
and every winter
I cry tears over you

I didn’t know what was happening
I only thought I had lost my footing

I saw the clear blue sky above me
as the clouds became smaller and smaller

the air was leaving my lungs
I couldn’t call out to you to catch me

became so peaceful that my fear
vanished and my mind was at ease

is the last thing I remembered but you,
my parachute, opened before impact

early mornings

early mornings
were always my bane
I would rather stay in bed
until sleep fully escaped me
but I must admit to the beauty
of morning’s silence that
would bring serenity within me
before having to face the harsh
light of the daily grind
