Like The Dickens short poem

Well whist in the world happened to
drive us so far apart my friend…
I miss you and I pray someday
we’ll be as close again as we were
way back when…
‘cuz it’s been a long, long time since
we were together I’m sure we both
have changed but in my heart you
remain the same, that’s one thing
that’ll never change…
well and although my life is a busy
one and something is always needing
to be done I’d make time for you,
anytime, anywhere, I still love you
more than I’ve ever loved anyone…
we had something special that can
never be replaced, impossible to be
gone without a trace…
so I will make one last attempt to
bring us back together again ‘cuz
I miss you, I miss you my dear, dear
long lost friend Like The freakin’
Dickens, maybe we can’t go back
but we sure as hell can start over
please don’t say it’s the end and
you’ll never pass this way again
oh can’t you just open your heart
and let me in again…
surely we haven’t drifted so far apart
we can’t rediscover each other and
like suspended in time last October…
oh God I miss you, I miss you Like
The Dickens and now after you the
rest is slim pickens and I miss you,
I freakin’ miss you, Like The Dickens,
Like The Dickens!

Tell It Like It Is

Tell It Like It Is long poem

Again I wake in this wretched place Where the devil glares with grimaced face Reading my heart, stripping it bare Savoring the scent of the secrets there I’m slipping and sliding, the ice too thin Carefully creeping, lest I fall

Just Like A Pearl

Just Like A Pearl short poem

Truth you seek, Character you weave The beauty you perceive, with the eyes austerely. Respect you earn, sacrifice and yearn Leaders you breed, Monarch unveiled. Mother, sister, lover or daughter The legacy you leave of your charismatic nature and affection

Like An Old Song

Like An Old Song short poem

Walking in mental fog, you become a swaying tree. In mistiness one becomes lonely like a blackbird. Hollyhocks would wait, till the sun comes out. December rain brings the gift― of sleet on lips. ————————————– Walking in mental fog, you

Like Gold

Like Gold short poem

The man of her life treats her like gold, So she cries Because she knows Her secrets would break him inside And would crush his soul, So to protect him she lies As her secrets are something that she holds

And Like A Spoon, I Fell short poem

She felt my thirst. Grabbing my legs lifting me in the air. I had no idea what was about to happen. The plastic removed from my face, the breath of life. I felt comfort in her hands. The places that
