Scabs of Heartbreak

our romantic intimacy
should have blossomed into ebullient prosperity
rambling weeds of doubt choked the spark
flame turned to ash
decaying in a cold shallow grave

had your love arrived
when the rose of innocence was the scent of trust
vulnerable as a butterfly alit a flower petal
unaware the harsh winter cold
of embittered betrayal

we could have known the beauty
a lush prolific garden
rare orchids and lilies
roses and magnolia trees
stayed intoxicated on lust’s exotic scents

our hearts should have rejoiced
as offshoots from love’s scattered seeds
roots were never formed
soil remained barren
never watered nor enriched

instead ours was a love
borne in a remembrance of pain
past heartbreak bore its icy scars
frozen; a hardened scab of heartbreak
inexpugnably resisting love’s thaw

so we went our separate ways
neither hating nor loving
the scabs covering the pain
now and then I see your smile
in the summer rain
I miss what should have been love

Imprisoned Heart

Fearless Love

too long a time
left without barricade
my heart was defenseless

childhood abandonment
created scars; scabbed wounds
strong as a brick wall
entombed my heart

panic guided relationships
hysteria drove love away
absconding from affection
solitude was my stronghold

then there was you

how you found your way
beyond the bricks and mortar
mystifies me still

an honest smile
a silent understanding
a compulsive love

now I have a love story
written in your name
hope replaces fearfulness
love owns the blame

My Little Man

I wrote this poem a few weeks after my son was born, it has taken me many years to edit. Though it is not my greatest writing work it is without a doubt my greatest work of heart.

 

Mute


 

Quixotic Star

I delight in watching you when you’re unaware
it’s my good fortune to love a man like you
what magnanimous deed could I have done
to garner the unconditional love you return

surreptitious moments are my guarded jewels
when admiringly my eyes trace you unawares
when you are the perfect, imperfect man I love
each nuance revealing the unfeigned you

I’m creating memories to last my lifetime
my private motion pictures to view at whim  
falling in love repeatedly with the quixotic star
my romance hero..love of my life

Caught In The Storm

I enjoyed you like a gentle rainfall
in the illusion of peach blossoms
heavens emitted the scent of passion
love’s profusion, electric sensations
I was swept into the soothing spray
an affectionate shower of deception

destruction struck in duplicity
guise manifested in a darkened sky
foreboding clouds and whipping winds
stark thunder of impending doom
abusively uprooted the sprouting tree
love’s roots had never been planted

danger lit the warning skies
there came a storm of furious rage
gentle rain now an angry downpour
shattered dreams, broken limbs
heeding too late the disaster warnings
caught in the midst of your abusive storm

Rage of Confusion

thoughts ablaze with rage
encircles me in battle
screaming for the clarity
you treacherously withhold

muddied messages befuddle
unspoken promises raise questions
vulnerable without answers
floundering in mixed emotions

frightening voices whisper doubt
in the alley of my mind
fear runs rampant
disorder in my thoughts

words with double meanings
trace no clear-cut definition
swirling whirlpool of confliction
trapped in a rage of confusion
