a cappella

For my muse……

a cappella

words come in waves
a chorus splashing in harmony
drenching my dancing heart
as my muse croons
her siren melody
a hypnotic verse reminiscent
of the haunting a cappella
sung by a lonely sea
urging me to fall overboard
into the depth of her words
submerged in metaphors
drowning in poetry

a sunset and a mojito

When does loneliness most affect me?

No, not when you think. I would have to say when I sit down to eat. I always imagine the dinner time conversations when families or couples dine. I bet most people take these moments for granted. I don’t.

Drinking my mojito, I watched a sunset.

Started writing a poem on a napkin. (Yes, we may have to change the blog name to The Lonely Napkin Author).

I wrote something for my muse. It will post this coming Monday. Hopefully, she will like it.

This was my dinnertime view last night, all that was missing was YOU.

Sitting at a bar, thoughts of muses, poetry. and loneliness floated alongside the ice cubes in my mojito.

I scribbled an occasional sentence or verse on a napkin because they were napkin worthy, unlike most of my other thoughts which are written on….

A waitress asked what I was doing.

“Writing poetry on a napkin.”

Time passed, my melancholy mood in this crowded bar, did not.

The waitress returned with a carnation. Pointing at an empty booth, she advised me a beautiful blonde was watching me as I drank and wrote. She was the curious person who wanted to know what I was writing.

Just before she left, my secret admirer asked the waitress to deliver the flower with a message.

“Mr. Poet, let this inspire you until the next time we meet for the first time.”

anthology of you

anthology of you

today, I penned another entry
with hemorrhaged ink
that never dries
between the yellowed pages
of yesterdays I dreamt
tomorrows that never arrived
in my journal
i drank a kiss from your lips
made love to your soul
with the same words
that never grow old
now I sit here planning
another imaginary rendezvous
in my cherished diary
i pen words of beauty
in my anthology of you

light

light

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
