Anticipation

Anticipation

As the last rays of sun
stretch down to touch the earth
and the final leaf falls from the tree
I will still be here, waiting
for you and all that it is worth
 
Let the darkness come
and smother me with dread
For I will soon know
whether you will finally come
or my fear will tear me to shreds
 
A lifetime spent in anticipation
of this moment to arrive
When love be requited
and we are together at last
so my heart will revive

Questions

Questions

What is missing inside of me
that refuses to believe
I am worth more?
 
That this treatment
I have received
is acceptable?
 
Instead of being taken
to the top of the mountain
I was left to rot in a ditch
 
Declarations of love
Duplicitous, dishonorable
yet believable
 
Now I am a warrior
fighting for her life
with amputated limbs
 
My heart in need of healing
Doubting and doubtful
Scarred with cynicism
 
Why do I fear abandonment
by someone capable
of delivering cruelty?

Jewels

Jewels

Sun glistening on the water
Dazzling, dancing, diamonds
Sparkling in the early evening light
Jewels courtesy of nature’s beauty
Enchanting, exquisite, ethereal
Gifted as day turns into night
 
Clouds transforming to Indigo blue
As daylight is washed from the sky
Transforming, stunning in simplicity
A slice of moon illuminating the way 
Stars signaling the end of the day
Guilty only in their complicity
