Elusive Love

Long lazy day
Cool summer nights
Skipping along
Flying emotional kites

Eyes gaze your way
Is it really you
A fluttering hope
Leaving me blue
My heart skips a beat
How do I compare
Eyes down to feet
A flower in my hair

Why do I fall short
In your eyes
Why am I not beautiful
A criminal I surmise

Abandoned and alone
Laying on my bed
Waiting for an answer
A long foreboding dread

The subject of a study
To figure out a crime
Poetry in my heart
An eternal rhyme

Searching for love
Strength and power
We fit like a glove
Be my lover

Wistfully dreaming
The day good bye
Darkness prevails
I breathe a deep sigh

I wish I could die…

The Arts have always inspired me. I began exploring the art of writing poetry at 9 years old. It became one of my passions because it allowed me to express myself and respond to my inner promptings in a positive way. I found that as with any art form there are no right or wrong ways of creating. This is the beauty of art...there are no limitations. The only requirement is that the poet be courageous enough to release his inhibitions and follow his heart and imagination. Along my path in life, I have discovered that writing poetry is , at its most, a truly liberating experience that not only reveals the nature surrounding us, but in reflecting the inner life of mankind.

True love is something so elusive. True love between two people is the most precious of gifts, Falling in love is not just an expression. Love is a powerful force that cannot be dissuaded. Love requires a lot of faith.

Fail In Love

Fail In Love short poem

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I’d sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned.

I Thought This Was Love sonnet poems

Please take my hand, for I am blind. I’ve lost my path and my sense of touch. I’ve fallen, for my hands and feet are behind. Please let me hear, for all is in a hush. My wrist and ankles
