Sun beats down 

My mind drfits, images of you 

You broke my heart 

Yet nothing has changed 

You are the only one.

Children play

Lovers frolic at the beach 

Waves rhythmically caress the sand 

And my thoughts return

You are the only one.

Strap hanging, stealing furtive glances

Hoping to lose myself 

In those green eyes


Days pass like clockwork 

You are the only one.

Move on

Move out 

Move over 


Endless words given 

Like inappropriate birthday presents

Nothing ever changes

You are the only one

For me.


Momentary Lapse in Concentration

Thinking aloud is never a good thing
And being alone gets too noisy
You make life complicated
But there I am fretting each time I hear my phone ring.

Walking, wandering, aimless thoughts always on my mind
I want a purpose, a reason to keep walking
Instead of living like I’m always caught off guard
By your messages
Am I just another of your scribbled designs
To be crumpled up and discarded
At your whim
Do you see me laughing now.

Let’s go away, take a holiday, leave all this behind
Explore, conquer
Step onto fresh grass
Screw the daily grind that we share
Computers, smart phones, endless texts
I just want to have a blank canvas
To laugh and sing
Be silly
No boundaries
How do we get that elusive thing
Into our lives now
Rather than me feeling like an outcast.

Let the beat drop and feel the music
If you give in to this
I can promise you bliss forever and a day
Just say it
Or whisper it
I want to hear you say yes.

Our Tomorrow Will Never End

Ebb and flow
As memories now mix
With future dreams.
Nerves jangle inside
Until I see you
Find your eyes with mine
Then time stands still.

You are
Everything that I want
Happiness rediscovered
Embers stoked
Most delicately
As our new journey
Begins at this moment.

No hesitation
As “yes” reverberates
Throughout the halls
A celebration
Of this union
Which has transformed
Our lives
Our being.

This requited Love
Is without boundaries
Gliding on the dance floor
Touching your face
Tasting your lips
Knowing inside
These feelings
Fostered together
This day
Will last
And ever.


A Fleeting Moment

My shallow breaths
Wishing for more.

The moon peeks through
My nakedness
Trivial now
When it wasn’t so
Shouting and yelling
Our laughter
Our Love
Overcame them all.

That moment I knew
We would be together

A gentle cough
That taste of blood on my lips
Oh I how I love you.

Fingers dig deeper, feeling the ground beneath me
The moon steps aside
Darkness beckons
Slowly but with a purpose
Enveloping my body.

I try to call you
To feel you
Loving me
To hear you

I reach out
As you float
Before me
Even though my fate
Is sealed
I hear that metallic sound
Feel that cold steel on my neck.

July 4th fireworks
Explode all around
I see you smile
As I slip
Into eternity
Finally delivered home from a foreign land
Where war resides
For future generations.

Foreign Affairs

A journey lies ahead

Of my choosing
A self-discovery
Or selfishness.
Emotions reserved
While inside
Excitement abounds
Carry me
Towards you.
This rebirth
Filled with
Who look knowingly
As my ascent
Whisper my name
Too much
As gentle refusals
My immersion
Complete.This Baptism

My nakedness
Without judgement
This new

Caress of Destiny

Freshness caresses
Gently awakening
As the light
Illuminates this world
Lingering shadows

Whispers urge you
Towards the future
Looking back offers
No refuge
Only an inky darkness.

Whispered promises
Evoke feelings
That tease
And tantalize.

Stirring memories
Of laughter and

A path divided
Lies ahead
Choices to be made
A leap of faith
For destiny

Black and Blue.

Conflicted emotions
The date draws near
Replaced by angst
Foreboding memories
Of times before
Not so long ago
That we are in
Black and White.

Or is worry
For nothing
As Spring rushes
Towards me
Aching to embrace
Feelings from before
When laughter and gaiety
Swirled around us
Yet never quite settled.

Who knows best
Modesty or
For both exist
Deep within me
Yet which
Is it your choice?

As you re-open that door
Long closed
Undisturbed feelings
Shake loose
Like a bear
Renewal and redemption
Or just
