~Broken in a Rainbow~

2013-05-27 BlogBlog RSSRSS

~Broken in a Rainbow~ Did you wrap me in a rainbow? Treasured, Measured. And I, Was I hidden? Tucked away, In a kaleidoscope of broken glass? Washed away? By the… Shards of my tears, Layered, Colored, …fragments, Collected, Rolling around inside, Lying jagged on the ground. Forgotten, Ignored, …incomplete. Didn’t you see? I…I was just [...]

~Winter’s Bride~ I kissed you at those cemetery gates, In that moment, We sealed our fate. As I kissed you on the lips, …cold breaths, Between the sips.

~Pride’s Curse~

Legend has it, That when the moon is full, …and bright, You can see her, But only at the hour of midnight. She comes with cat like grace, Trying, Searching, ….seeking, Her reflection, A moment to see her face. Cursed she was, Because of love, ….or was it pride? Depending on whose telling the tale. [...]

<a href=”;current=P1050410-2.jpg” target=”_blank”><img src=”” border=0 alt=Photobucket></img></a> ~The Cock and Tail~ The wood of the old bar groaned under the weight, Of so many indiscretions, As they strutted in, Without the faintest hesitation. Faces excited, The players, Took their places. And what would the night bring? I wondered as I looked on, … in fascination. Top [...]

~Dancing in a Raindrop~ I hear a far off drumming, Starting to begin. Sometimes the storms, Just takes my breath away. And takes me in….

Whispered petals, Washing, Lapping over me, Oh, so tenderly. Am I , In these layers, Drowning in a sea of uncertainties? Or possibilities? Lost or found, Beneath these velvet waters, Am I bound? Luring, In their seductive caress, I sub come to the Softness of their velvet nest. Haunting in these depths, Of solitude, I [...]

Fragments: ~A Handfull of Crumbs~

2013-05-18 BlogBlog RSSRSS

~A Handful of Crumbs~ Crumbs gathered, Clandestine, From our daily buffet, Filling our own outstretched palms, ..and others, Along the way. They gathered closely, Then quickly flew away, As the sun rode high, And sweet music played. A lifted arm, Hands raised, Offered in silent supplication, With a  handful  of crumbs, Brought them back, In [...]

~Echoes of Dreams~ (A CPC Collab)

2013-05-18 BlogBlog RSSRSS

I reached sleepily for your pillow, But you were no longer there, In the room were the echoes of my dreams. Tugging hungrily at my mind. Time after time. Bereft, Into the darkness, I could only stare. Sitting on the dresser, Our love letters silent, Left unread. Silly me, Those daydreams still haunt…dance in my [...]
