In His Eyes

I saw your browns today In his eyes. I saw you laugh today In his smile. I heard the sweetest words you used to say Trickle from his lips that way. I felt your strength today In his embrace. I saw your love today Right from his face. I closed my eyes and felt your kiss […]

Beneath the Shade

It seemed like such an innocent “Hello.” Your lips flush against my bark, O so still. Smooth dimples quickly felled a hollowed soul; Your hands, mouth moved against my trunk until One cautious cunning cupid flexed his bow As if compelled by Eros’ fertile psalm.

The jeweled box of love and mem’ries springs Wide; clicking, glinting from the lightened room. The bothered dust doth make a mist of things; The air and I surrender to the plume. My lips move against your ear to whisper My revenge; hindsight checks my eager tongue. We move through that fateful week undeterred, But […]
