Poetry ~ Your Muse

i am the doorway
to your next adventure

i am the moonbeam
shining on your desires

i am the stardust
illuminating your path

i am the magic
inspiring your creativity

i am all your possibilities
i am all that you find fascinating

if you believe in moonbeams,
stardust, and magic

believe in me

i am your muse

Poetry ~ Hearts of Steel

she hung her heart on the coat rack 
vowing never to wear it again
it did not protect her from the elements
in fact, it left her feeling exposed
she decided to treat herself
to the latest in heart fashion: steel
strong, impenetrable,
and highly recommended
by the fashion gurus
of the Broken Heart Society
it was no longer fashionable to
wear your heart on your sleeve
the fall fashion trend required
full body coverage
it was all the rage
"hearts of steel"

Poetry ~ The Edge of Town

there is a darkness on the edge of town
it's shifting, cracking, severing the ground
creating a hollow, shallow grave
where the hearts of men are found

but you must not let the darkness in
for the darkness feeds on 'us and them'
and devours wholly, the hearts of men
seeding the weeds of hatred within

a simple mask was all they asked
to keep the darkness at bay
but the heartless men proclaimed that
their freedom was too high a price to pay

and so the darkness cloaked the town
where many since have died
'your neighbor's death for your freedom'
the mourning town folk cried!
