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 heartbreak
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

Winds of Love

one summer day
love rambled in
on a borrowed breeze
settled in my heart

came October winds
love drifted away
with the rustle
of felled autumn leaves

Fair Maiden Waits

across an ocean blue
fair maiden stands
on white-hot sands
waiting for youwaiting

a promise of hope
is her strength to cope
nary a falter
her love never altered

with a heart that’s true
unaware of your guise
hope in her sigh
across an ocean blue
fair maiden waits for you

Imprisoned Heart

imprisoned heart

Death on the Velvet Green

lying on
the velvet green
I dream
remembrance
of the gleam
your green eyes
lit with flames
how we danced
in a trance
licking at our lust
till hearts burst
with inundated love

velvet green

lying on
the velvet green
I scream
memories fade
reality strikes
nightmare awakens
pain again
an icy blow
that struck my heart
loveless goodbye
took my breath
an internal death

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

my defenseless heart
became butterfly wingsbutterfly effect
ascending in response
love began its rise

savoring love in fullness
threshold of sensations
inhaling the rainbow
trust is our foundation

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

I languish to disclosemute
deepest secrets of my heart
the feverish desire you impart
suffering to break free
a love that beats against my chest
aching to be given rest
yet I remain mute

Self-Knowledge Is Sublime

poetry reveals the truths
the center of your being
the illumination and the dark
duality no one is seeing

oft-times you’ll discover
as you read your words
an aspect of yourself
you never ever heard

through your poetry
you gain the freedom inclined
whether honest or deceitful
desirable or shunned
self-knowledge is sublime
