Poetry ~ Silence Never Lies

“Remember me?” his letter began. 

“Of course,” I responded pen in hand.
“Where have you been? You sent no word.”

“In another land. I thought you’d heard.”

“No, only silence, loud and clear. “

“Sorry, my darling, but now I’m here.”

“No! I don’t need a lover who runs and hides. Your silence was my answer and silence never lies.”

Poetry ~ Eye of the Storm

Remember how frightened you were when the storm formed in my eyes?
You were visibly shaken but safely tethered to the earth with your lies.

When the lightening flashed you cowered in the corner like a child.
Then the thunder boomed, the skies grew dark and the winds blew wild!

We were in the throes of it when I looked up at you and cried
and a teardrop fell from my cheek and mixed with the rising tide.

Then the waves crashed savagely on the windswept shore of my heart
and what was once our love was flooded and torn apart.

Why didn’t you heed my warning to be faithful and true?
Instead, you pierced my heart with deception and withdrew!

Now, as the storm subsides my heart is transformed.
Oh, darling beware, for I am the eye of the storm!
