    It was time but you would not come Your body pushing from inside mine struggling to take a first breath but whether it was my body that resisted or your head that would not turn the moment of decision was taken from us and with a rush of machines and people in green I was […]

  • The Muse commented on the post, temple 7 years, 10 months ago

    Constructed by nouns
    Expressed in adjectives
    Carried through verbs
    The poem
    becomes a temple
    An homage
    to intellect
    and creativity
    Enticing its reader
    to lay tokens of reaction

  • The Muse commented on the post, gown 7 years, 10 months ago

    The gown of midnight adorns
    with the sparkle of sequins
    reflected from stars
    The bleeding moon
    strokes a gossamer veil
    of pale highlights
    A haunting glow
    soft and yielding
    Hush now

    its canvas
    Lift your arms

  • Sentinel
    It stood
    as a silent witness
    to the passing years
    Friends

    Tears

    Joy

    This centerpiece
    on a wooden table
    A tangible object
    of continuity
    in our hurried lives.

    Allow
    Let
    Words that
    do not belong
    between a you
    and an I

    The socks she wore
    fell sadly down
    like the lines on her face
    deeply etched
    slouched low
    around her mouth
    like quote marks
    highlighting
    disappointment
