The Last of the Hearts (One Stop Poetry)

The game of life was on players easing into another hand spades, diamonds and clubs  flying one man controlled the game with high trump *** masterfully skilled keeping his eye on the others the cavalier swept more into his cache waiting to take it all *** … and there they were the helpless hearts couldContinue reading “The Last of the Hearts (One Stop Poetry)”

Yew Tree (#art by Andrew Crane) #One Shot Wednesday

I am fated caught in your limbs strong and vast they hold me fast *** Were you meant to be intertwined in the sinews of my heart? Enshrined in my mind? *** Does my love give you license to blow in the breeze without breaking barely shaking? *** Together are we better than apart? *** WillContinue reading “Yew Tree (#art by Andrew Crane) #One Shot Wednesday”

Silence (One Shot Wednesday) #poetry

The space between our words almost as piteous as the distance between our hearts *** Unbearable silence when you abandon me I am left enslaved on a thought for days *** To measure loneliness by absence of sound expounds emptiness *** my heart is trapped in this vacuum silence will  be my ruin Each week One StopContinue reading “Silence (One Shot Wednesday) #poetry”

Prism of Pain (One Shot Wednesday) #poetry

What angle will you jab at me today a prism  usually with the light it plays *** rainbow reflections colored so bright most enjoy your dance with the light *** but this, this prism has turned my life into the darkest abyss *** each angle you grab a facet of pain you swivel me andContinue reading “Prism of Pain (One Shot Wednesday) #poetry”

Lights Go OUT (One Shot Wenesday)

When the lights go low what do you Fear? Do things creep and crawl?

Turn Around (One Shot Wednesday Poetry)

Don’t call out my name reach for my hand let me walk take a stand Leave Go away don’t say those words I grapple  each day with the sting inside of me Now turn around the final time Tears of yours merge with mine The dance of love is  intricate, flowing, and sometimes stopped mid-stream.Continue reading “Turn Around (One Shot Wednesday Poetry)”
