Poem of the Month – October – Jagged Pieces

Jagged Pieces

Confusion and hurt
when life and love
are fragmented images
in a broken mirror
Jagged pieces 
of partial pictures
forcing them to fit
does not make them clearer
Love seen only
in the abstract
where sometimes
it was a safe place to be
Life in reality
too arduous, difficult
a price to pay
and a yearning to be free
But a magnanimous heart
always gives benefit
to a multitude of doubts
A habit to woo the nemesis
Glueing back the pieces
of a fractured life
Compassionate and forgiving
Awaiting a new genesis

Saved from Extinction – A Quadrille

Saved from Extinction

Marriage saved
from extinction
after weeks of
not understanding
the distinction
between two people
with opposing views
Hurting each other
beyond belief  
the other must choose
Anger escalating
blinded with rage
until the coin drops
in the slot and
no more war to wage

Go Dog Go Cafe - Promote yourself Monday



Like dust in a sunbeam
Your closeness is ubiquitous
Unseen, but in every particle
Only visible in light
Your essence omnipresent
You nest in my mind
Wishful thoughts conjured
on my darkest days
When wild horses cannot
drag me from sadness
I lose myself in you 
and our memories
of special moments shared
Significant to only us
Cherished forever
Even though you are gone
You remain here with me
Your strength hiding 
in my dark shadows
Your presence healing
