His Hands

I stir a pot filled with emotions I just can’t seem to describe

Words boil between my reality and dreams

Biting thru pressed lips

Regrets of what was lost and truly never was bubbling at me- the desolation starts to haunt

Turning off the flame I lay the spoon down

I drift

I envision the grass beneath my feet

Facing all four corners of the wind

The crispness of air- it taunts

There is no outside warmth-only that of my own beating heart

A circle of breeze- the loneliness

I exhale, close my eyes

I catch of glimpse of his hands from the memories I’ve placed

The longing of comfort

The thickness and protruding veins

Strength flowing throw his fingers

The attractiveness of his hands

I want to paint a lasting image

Hmm, I begin to wonder…

I can’t describe why I imagine them when I drift between worlds

The magnetic attraction of this unknown man

He only exists between the light and space in the darkness of my mind

I don’t want to open my eyes

I trail the sun, Searching for the first glimpse of my moon, For love shines upon her edges, And her craters shadow me from the loss of light I once mistook for love.

Nobody’s Fool

As painful as break-ups are,

You have not lost at love,

You have won,

Love has defeated the untrue,

Love has opened the doors and windows for the right love to come in,

A love that is meant for you,

Celebrate with your broken heart,

For a fool has let you go,

Your real king or queen awaits the gift of you.

Hope

It is with the strength of choosing the road less traveled that I, the lone wolf, have learned to turn my greatest fears into hope.

Courage 

It takes more courage to stand alone without fear, than to follow the pack without hope.

The Morning After

As I nervously watched the results unfold,I felt a part of me die,

Astonished and deflated,

Tears fell from my eyes,

Anger and sadness stirred,

I slept,

Awakened numb,

Fearful with newfound inner strength,

From the ashes of defeat,

A warrior was born,

A protector,

A vision of love,

Together, all of us new warriors will rise and overcome,

With our voice,

We will be heard. As I nervously watched the results unfold,
