Sleepless on a
cold winter night
wondering if your
hands can touch me
like your words did,
if with every touch,
every whisper, every
caress you could
feed my starving soul.
The thought of your
fingers running through
my skin awakens the
wild woman inside of me,
blowing my imagination
and making my heart
beat fast, but it's
just a thought, maybe
just a beautiful dream
on a cold winter night...
when I look beside me
I just see an empty space,
and that shreds my heart.


One by one
I'm picking up the pieces
of my fractured heart
scattered along the way.
One by one
I will put them back
where they belong.
Some pieces are sharp
and make me bleed,
some are full of scars
and unrecognizable.
One by one
I'm putting the puzzle together
although some pieces will
not longer fit; only dust left.
One by one
It's almost complete but
there is a missing piece
an empty space hard to fill
The missing piece is YOU.
One by one
I'm turning my tears into letters
letters into words
words into poems
and my shattered heart
into an unbreakable masterpiece
A heart made of stained glass.

Robotic human beings
Stare at bright screens
Like moths a the flame
Connected to technology
Disconnected from humanity
Wolves in sheepskin
Stalking their prey
As lonely souls
Seeking love.
Face to face conversations
Become cold texts
Love and kisses
Turned into emoticons
Loved ones becomes strangers
Strangers become family
Newest toys of this era
The computer or television
Like an addiction to a drug
Is that to the video game,
while the cell phone flashes
Innocence stolen by technology.
