Poetry ~ Incomplete

words55

her words
fall in shambles
in various shades
of incomplete
falling from the ether
cluttering her sheets
pressed in secret places
where no light can penetrate
embracing the darkness
each word must bear its weight
she wrings them through her rhymer
and measures their metered feet
then rips her words to pieces
and declares them incomplete

Poetry ~ Seriously?

Seriously
Why are you so serious, 
so stuffy and aloof?
Slip off your tie
and stay a while
and let’s debate the truth. 

I agree life is important 
and somethings matter more,
but nothing rises much above 
the people I adore. 

And you, my love, are highest 
on my list of most desired
So, let’s settle down 
and play around –
your participation is required!

Poetry ~ Silence


I have driven myself mad in search of you, my old friend,
Silence.
I cherished the solitude of my childhood, immersed in you,
Silence.
I find myself yelling at the world to shut up! I crave you,
Silence.
I scream inside my own head to stop talking and give me,
Silence.
I am reading a book entitled “Quiet”, in search of you,
Silence.
I will not stop until I find you again, my dear friend
Silence.
I hope we are reacquainted soon. I am in desperate need of
Silence.
