Ice Man – A Quadrille

Ice Man

Being closed off and aloof
it is impossible for anyone
to break through the deafening silence
Your cold, frigid heart
will likely never thaw
What will it take to reach you once more
Or will you forever be the ice man
Frozen in time

Let it Flow

Let it Flow

My soul, a river flowing
Its water not always clear
A tempest stirring trouble
Pushing obstacles in its path
Yet it navigates well
and moves on its journey

My heart, along for the ride
Open, vulnerable
Not always strong enough
to handle the bumps and bruises
of this voyage
Hanging on for dear life

Broken – Poem of the Month – May 2022


Broken like the wing
of an injured bird
Broken is the silence
of words never heard

Broken like branches of a tree
slowly bent and withered
Crippled by the performance
You so cruelly delivered

Feeling shattered and
broken in a thousand parts
It is the sliver of glass
that is optimism in my heart

A heart left in pieces
after you rendered your speech
You have exited my world
and you are now out of reach

I struggle to sweep away
the fragments of a dream
Scattered in explosion
A world of hope to redeem

Broken is my spirit
at the end of this line
Broken is this heart
You took what was mine
