It Breaks So Quickly…

Love, Poetry

It breaks so quickly, yet comes back together slowly and with determination

Made up of moon beams, hugs, and dreams of life in the sun with a happily-ever-after theme

It knows you for who you are, sees your weaknesses and your beauty

And it makes me flush with emotion from all this knowing

It makes me keep going, one dream in front of the other, steadily keeping pace with it’s rhythm

It belongs to you, or at least, I let you borrow it

Yes, my heart breaks so quickly, but it always mends back together

Slowly and with determination

It is strong from so many hugs, dreams, and moon beams

The Cleansing of the Tides


It beckons to you
seducing you with it’s rhythmic waves that soothe the restless soul
entoning the beat of the heart, the spirit, the world
until all is washed away whole
With each breath, each wave bringing new treasures
new mysteries for us to awe and admire
and, though cleansing, it is not without pain
it is passion without fire
The vast endlessness calling explorers to voyage
and broken-hearted poets to dream
all in search of the same enlightenment
in mother nature’s arms at sea
For me, you have returned me home
to a place in my heart that I have sometimes forgot
Quieting my demons, clearing my mind
filling me with that once lost

I love you for the same reasons
That I loved you for then
Your beauty and your strength
Have inspired me again
My strong and kind sister
My devoted and wise mother
You have been both to me
When life swept me under
Through our brightest night
Through our darkest hour
You saw my beauty

And encouraged my power

A part of my soul
You surely are now
You have taught me so much
Of what life is about
Time and space
They cannot betray
The love that you’ve shown me
In so many ways

I am forever grateful to you
For how you helped me grow
And I will always love you
This I hope you know




Such a brief moment we have

Just a glimpse of light, a breath of air, a pounding of the heart

The wretchedness of pain, The warmth of love

A passionate kiss, The numbness of regret

The pursuit of self

The moments of truth

A world to set your heart on fire with passion and emotion

A billion tiny moments

Put together to make up a lifetime.

Or maybe not, maybe far less moments

No one can know how many times the heart will beat

And it may all be gone in the blink of an eye

Each breath may be the last

The words that are spoken may be heard no more

That warm embrace may mend a heart

Those forgiven lies may save a soul

Do not with hold for tomorrow what you can love and make right today.

Love Letter To The Sky


You bring joy to my heart

My love and admiration for you is great.

By day, your beauty radiates all around me

The fire in your heart warms my skin and lightens my spirit

Even as it brightens my world

Your magnificent hues paint this life in shades of passion

The array of colors inspires me and fills me with awe

As you have inspired man and poets for all of time

Your blues, golds, violets, fiery reds, and even your greys

Shake my soul and seem to dictate my emotions

We are one

Sharing the same spirit,

That of the Everlasting.

By the darkness of night, you are deeply mysterious

Leaving so much to the imagination

Your enchanting demeanor covered in black

And bejeweled with blue and yellow fired diamonds

Forever man has pondered your grace and depth

Forever have they sought to find what lies within your heart of hearts.

And when you are grey

Oh, that solemn grey!

When all of those lovely hues have been wiped from the palette

Leaving me empty and longing

The dullness penetrates me and sits deep inside my soul

I lie in bed and we cry together tears of rain

But I know you will shine again

Colorful, radiant, divine

You always do

And we shall shine together.

For you are my Everlasting love

And I am eternally grateful to be surrounded by your deep, mysterious beauty.Image

Warmth in the Darkness


The smell of his skin

Sultry blend of salt and sweet

In the cold dark night


Strong arms around me

Holding me, keeping me warm

Pressed to him so tight


His lips are dry, rough

But his kiss is silk and hot

With candle light soft


Many times we’ve loved

My body still aches for him

Never getting enough


With joy, pain, and lust

I have loved my friend so much

Love made strong through years


Cling to his body

Let him claim mine as his own

Darkness without fears
