Poetry ~ A Dance with Laughter

i danced with laughter last night
he is good to me
i need to spend more time with him

past came calling 
but i didn't accept the charges
he's too moody and sentimental

love and i had afternoon tea
in a thunderstorm
he is essential

future rang the bell
i peered through the peep hole
he smiled at me

dream and i have an understanding
he is only allowed to visit 
when he's not a nightmare

Poetry ~ Summer Wind

i felt the warmth of your breath
on my neck when your words arrived
they blew in on a summer wind
with orders to take me alive
i had no choice but to surrender
as your words shackled my heart
i am a prisoner of your love
forever tortured when we're apart

Poetry ~ Broken Darkness

Broken Darkness Poem

your headlights broke my darkness,
blinding me in the night

causing me to spiral downward
in a battle for my life

healing broken darkness
is a daunting affair

the process so painful
i’ve resorted to prayer

on my knees i plead
as darkness reigns

i feel a sense of urgency
my soul longing for change

although light is required
for love to survive

i prefer the twilight
to false light blinding my eyes
