the illumination of your affection always surrounds me as a formless, invisible spectrum taking shape in my lungs as I breathe in your atmosphere it blinds me with the hope that the light of your love will be the final glimpse my eyes admire before darkness shrouds my life
My long time followers know I am a crusader against domestic abuse. A precious friend finds herself trapped in a relationship of physical/mental abuse. Although her husband will never read my poem, this is for him and all the other losers.
when a woman decides to forget
a white table cloth stained by unspoken words lays dead in a frigid kitchen like a red rose in a morgue of poetry a barren tree outside the window extends branches of remorse for once a fallen leaf has wilted it can never be reset some fires can’t be rekindled there is no going back when a woman decides to forget
let me meander through your hair watch the sunset on your flesh explore your limits and frontiers from the borders of your whisper to the edges of your dreams let me claim sovereignty over all this beauty I see for together we will discover my love for you will end in that infinite place where the horizon meets the sea
In a conversation with my good friend G at Short Prose I told her I always wanted to write a poem using “mandolin.” She encouraged me to give it a try. Please make sure you stop by her blog to admire her wonderful poetry.
should I blame it on the stars when Venus winked at me signorina had amore in her eyes as blind virgins prayed in Saint Peter’s basilica my imagination took them to places they have never been Mediterranean nights tugged at my heartstrings as if I were a lonely mandolin
let me see
the waltz of your sigh
the rainless rainbows in your smile
show me your darkest secrets
so I can discover
auroras revolving around your soul
take me to the other side of
poetry and beauty
come remove my veil
blind me with your love
Recently, I came to the realization my life can easily be compartmentalized by Playlists. I have a few playlists for writing poetry. Playlists for blogging, treadmill, shopping, and for napping. I even created a driving playlist.
Makes me think an autobiography of my life will be a musical. Egads!
When working on my manuscript about eternal love & reincarnation, I turn to inspiring love songs to help me set the mood. Ladies, I know this song was used for the movie Twilight, but in my heart, every time I hear it, I feel it was written for my latest work in progress (manuscript/screenplay).
