Gypsy Woman

it’s not what you are running from
it’s where you are heading to,
the desire
the hope
you are one of a few,
needing to fulfill
inquisitive minds
the unknown
leaving the rest behind,
it’s blissful awareness of
everlasting anew,
a soul calls home
where all fresh dreams
go to brew
it’s the untold story
that never would be
if not for the sacrifice
of two…
or three…

Rising Above

I can't.

I won't.

will never.

give up.

refusing to be the victim.

rising above,
nonsensical verbiage

saddened only by,
your sadistic eyes.

Loves Capabilities

they all love you…
my friends,
they do!
they tell me so…
the charm, the wit,
the adorable ways of which
you love me.
all chivalrous and conforming.

they wish me to be more like you,
like them…
yet, each morning i wake,
and i am me.
none of the above
of which you all seek.

can i still be loved?
the unconventional me?
or must i sustain the constant
ridicule, judgment, passiveness?
just love me, is all i ask…
the madness that is me
i take the vow, to love in return,
as capable as me can be.

What If?

what if this kiss
was our last?
what if good-bye
was forever?
the time we held each other,
only a memory
distance escaping us,
what if…
we were no longer?
would you remember me?
remember us?
what we could have been?
what if…
two words,
two souls,
lost, eternally
would you…?
remember me?
what we were?
what if,
good-bye was forever?
our last time,
our last

Thank You Larry G!

a bit confused...
do I learn to walk
before I swim?
do I learn to swim
before I fly?

perhaps I should learn to live,
before I die...

take me away
to a land of forgiveness
peace and purity
glam and passion
take me beyond,
to a land far from here
no baggage required
heading for the horizons
into sunsets and sunrises
perfectly blended
with moonlit waters
calmly reflecting,
a surrender
to you
from me
i’ll find my way,
if you’ll take me

selective memory

time slips…

fades away into the eternal distance
filled, yet forgotten
past transgressions and lessons
history repeats itself
over and over
laughing hysterically
for the rumpus delight
of the forsaken
love, let love, forget love
to love again
passionate placement
in the timeline of life
fading the memories
of long-ago forgotten
rising, to the bliss
of born-again forgiveness
again and again
each day
time slips away…
memories suppressed
be reborn today.
