~ Sacrifice 


~ Sacrifice 
My love has nowhere to go

No destination 

Held fast within my being

My very core 

Trapped…unseen
Blessed was I 

With the capacity to love

To give without thought

To surrender self,

Receiving naught
Still, love grew old

Took its last breath, repose

And laden is the heart

With yesteryear thought…
And Cupids cruel, cruel, dart.

~ Soon


Soon
Soon
My Dove will fly
Welcoming me once more
Entwined, together, we’ll soar
To heights unknown
As ever before
To fall feather light
Dreaming.

~ The End?


~ The End. ~
Speak not of love and longing

Nevermore this heart to comply

Your essence was so fleeting

Now, how the years have passed by
In youth you were the fairytale –

Oh! How young hearts were deceived!

The knight, the maid in waiting

Dreams that became nightmares grieved
Speak not of love and longing

Nights are now a peaceful repose

Wrapped in words and wonderment

Drowsy these eyes, the book does close.

~ Nightingale 


The nightingale lamenting
Sings a sorrowful song

Of hearts battered, broken

When Love has gone so wrong

He sings as if to know

The ache in every soul

Forlorn and longing

For what once made them whole
Yet, in his lament –

A true love is never spent

Sultry summer sensations

Salacious singing

~ Speak to Me


~ Speak To Me
Of beauty-

A sunsets sigh

As it dips in glorious hues

‘Neath that vaulted sky

Surrendering to the sea,

As if in ecstasy
Or, the blood moon

Seducing the minds eye

Rising in passions color

Shameless, no hint of being shy

Dominating Night, compelling,

An orb so overwhelming 
Your words I’ll hold,

Enfold, within my heart

Surging through blood and vein

‘Til freed, unrestrained 

Beauty, shall have full reign 
Speak to me.

~ What Heart


~ What Heart
Has not had grief to bare

To sit dazed unaware

Lost within pains whirlwind

Seems to consume, never end…
What heart

Has not felt such elation

A dreamy state of loves libation

Intoxicated by the mere thought

‘He loves me, he loves me not’
What heart

Has not rattled the cage

Of inhibitions at any age

Breaking the so called rules

Aw, love has made all such fools
What heart

When aged, does slowly beat

Recalls the flutter bittersweet

That drew fourth taunt each string

That made life a lovers song to sing
What heart

Has not had grief to bare
To sit dazed unaware

Lost within pains whirlwind

That seems to consume, never end…

What heart?
