This Fling

Love won't always elude us, and when you find someone with such intoxicating feaures, life, old pain fades to moments of silence. My heart was silent, My body a parade, When you walked in and sat. The fire of your spirit, It dyed the color of your hair, The bite of your aura, A red…

Battle Hymn Heart

It isn't often I say this, but my hand was moved, my soul was pushed to revisit this. It was a calling. So, here is an old promise of love and loyalty, protection and determination. Maybe it all went to my head. Give me a thousand words, I’ve got your back. A million demons knocking…

Abused: Story of My Lady

This is an epic poem, a long story poem. This is rather old but one of my favorites.   Deep red curtains filled the room, Blackness consumed and blinded me, The footsteps behind me would catch me soon, And to ease my fears my mind lied to me. I crawled into the darkest corner, I…

Sparrow’s Song

About falling in love, it sometimes feels like a hammer, sometimes it is more like a Sparrow's Song. Wandering aimlessly her soul is lost in a fog.

When frustration takes the form of a lump, black and sickly, deep within your soul, words can save you. Those words were yours, not mine. My anger, my despair clouded me. I couldn't let go of the agony I felt. You lied. Stepping away, letting go. Pushing my fist into that wall. And when my…

Dying Soldier

A poem about unsaid words and leaving those who care for you hanging. And he came to our city, to seek the gold. And he stayed here just as was told. He waited with patience for the word. That it was safe to sheathe his sword. Until his queen called him home. That soldier he…

Dream Resolution

This poem was written, like many, in a time after my heart was broken. This poem is about knowing defeat of your heart.   In the hazy morning blur, The gods touched my cheek. The maiden wept at my feet. The crone shook her head, Resolute and solum. She knew I'd fallen. And Mother, she…
