Parasites

all life is parasiticparasites
every living being
feeds from another life form
in order to survive

one would think
a supposed loving
all wise designer
could have devised
a less savage plan

Pen on Fire

 

A Poet’s Truth

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 trustheartbreak
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

Aging With Grace

avoiding the ravagesaging with grace
age would demand
would seem divine
looked at more closely
I would decline

old friends would shy away
noting my constant
appearance day by day
never a wrinkle
‘what’s wrong’ they would say

young ones would wonder
how wise, my thoughts strange
younger generation
styles would change

knowing all I would do
was secretly concealed
never tarnishing my youth
too great a temptation to abuse

lines on my face
as the years go by
are the beauty within
why would I want to deny

Winds of Love

one summer daywinds of love
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

Fair_Maiden_Waitsacross an ocean blue
fair maiden stands
on white-hot sands
waiting for you

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 sighs
across an ocean blue
fair maiden waits for you

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
