A Poet Knows...


How to convey ones

Thoughts, feelings and emotions

In a variable variety of ways

From the most inextricable ideas

Their Pen can play

In its own unique way.

Bittersweet Ink...


Forgive my poetic heart

For it is full of tangled up emotions

Conflicts and confusions

All of which need to be

Bled out from time to time

Written out in a bittersweet release

To my heart and mind.

Bottled Up...


Bottled up emotions

Stashed away for too long

Fermenting and brewing

Beginning to pull me down

Drown me in a sour aftertaste

I need a sprinkle of sweetener

To bring me back to reality

Releasing all the negativity at last

Having a free and peaceful heart.

Changing My Mind


Nothing seems to be getting done

Cleared or figured out

Cause I've been changing my mind yet again

My brain seems to be lacking it's usual clout

All out of sorts, not its usual self

Inconsistent and unsure

To kick self-doubt out the door again

Maybe that's the cure.

Destination Unknown


This life we're given

This journey we're on

This path we walk alone

Separate from others

Is our own private one

A reality all of our very own

Never fully understood

Never fully comprehended

That is one hell of a ride.

Ephemeral Enchantments


Our love was an ephemeral love

Short lived but deep hitting

Carving forever memories in the heart

First love experiences still cherished.
