Caged

Caged

Why?
I ask
Yesterday’s
insanity
Was yet another nail in my coffin
You have now become the demon lover
a gilded cage
my prison
I am
trapped

A Fleeting Moment

A Fleeting Moment

You touched my life
with a stroke of a feather
A fleeting moment 
in the moon shadow
that excited and tantalized 
Luring me to you
like a moth to the flame
Singeing wings
burning desire
Now all that remains
is a feeling
A sensation that still tingles
A scratch
you can barely see

One Liner Wednesday

Ah, Wednesday. Always my favorite day of the week. It is neither here nor there, but, it is the day for One Liner Wednesday prompted by Linda G. Hill.

This week I am sharing this statement which I do not believe to be true. As if …

Have a great Wednesday!

Never Liked You

Never Liked You

You are big and 
quite beautiful
to look at
The color of your skin
can sometimes
play trickery
Fooling us to what
is inside
Shades of yellow
and sometimes
Dark red
You sound like
you know who you are
but you confuse us
with your name
You look so sweet
and tantalizing
but you are
invariably sour
and can be quite nasty
I am sad to say
that I have
never liked you
and never will
I don’t know why
others find you
so special
You might be a fruit
but you are no grape

Lisa from Tao Talk is guest hosting
at D'Verse Poets tonight. She has prompted
us to write about food.
Great to have you hosting Lisa!

Thief

Thief

He hides beneath his black cloak
A thief, corrupt in his actions
Seeing only the glitter
Shining bright
Appealing, flashy
Preying on innocence
 
He steals from the naive
the needy and the oblivious
Smelling their fear and insecurity
Knowing when to strike
Feeding on their vulnerability 
and without penitence
