"The Braggart"

Am I beneath your dignity?
That's why you're always patronizing me.
I don't see you as any better!
I could burn you up
like a love letter!
Supercilious from where you are.
No, I have not got that far.
Tenacious is my steadfast grip.
My palms are sweaty.
But I shan't slip!
So you've come t… Read full post »

"Through The Mist and The Stormy Sea"

Once in a lifetime something calls to you
through the mist and the stormy sea.

And you have to follow it to awaken all your dreams.
Where you're going and who your with
are questions you don't know.
The wind keeps pushing your sails and rocking you
to and fro.
Oh where oh where are you taking me?… Read full post »

"The Best In Me"

There's not many people I can share myself with,
that could reach into the depths of my soul.
Someone I could bare myself with,
not just ceratin parts, but the whole.
I have such  fragility and great vulnerability
that cautions me at every turn.
But with you I'm not afraid to expose myself.
I'm well pr… Read full post »

"The One"

When I look up at the night sky
I see shimmering, dancing little stars.
And I think when I was a child
how I made a wish on one of those stars.
I had chosen, among the many
one special one.
And I guess that is how you came to me.
You were the chosen one.
Out of the… Read full post »

"Don't Miss Out On The Moment"

Don't miss out on the moment.
Life is too short and sorrow too heavy to bear.
Let us  appreciate what we have here.
Let us be in the present, not think of yesterday.
And as for the future, it's too far away.

"You Are Perfect Being You"

You are perfect being you!
There is nobody else like you.
You are one of a kind.
Nobody else can be you.
And I wouldn't change a thing.
I love you just the way you are.
I don't want flawless!
Each blemish is a unique characteristic
of who you are.
No one else can compare to you.
You shine in your… Read full post »

"A Mother's Day Poem"

Mom, have I gotten too busy in my own life
to tell you just how much you mean to me?
Today in this hustled and hurried world
people often don't stop and take the time
to tell someone how much they care.
But this is your day, mom.
This is the day we stop all that we… Read full post »

"Intangible Treasures"


We cannot always measure
the fruits of our labor.
Was it the all those late night talks
when you were so tired
that you could barely keep your eyes opened?
But didn't you listen so attentively!
Was it those summers on the beach
when we both sat watching the ocean
come to shore, quiet and reflectivel… Read full post »

In this day and age it is something
we run out of a lot.
It is the most precious gift we can give,
the gift of ourselves.
Is something that can get lost
if we are not careful how we handle it. Read full post »

"A Word, A Touch And A Nod"

A father is more than someone
who passes on his genes.
To me you represent everything
that a father is suppose to be.
You listen without judgement.
You set a good example
by the way you live your life.
You don't need to tell me right from wrong.
I know by watching you.

Another poem for "Blue Mountain Art"..........really short, meant to fit in a card 

Sometimes I don't always say the right thing.
I  know I don't show you enough how much I care.
Yet you have this amazing way of taking me in.
You have this sensibility to read me.
You know the th… Read full post »

"You're Not Alone"

You're not alone.
In this big, big world isn't it nice
to have someone of your own.
Someone you can count on,
someone to depend.
Others come and go
but you'll always  have a friend.
When you seem to struggle
and when you're feeling down,
others might turn their back on you.
But you know I'll be aroun… Read full post »

"Internal Struggle"

When there's a vast distance
between the heart and the mind,
It sets a pathway of resistance.
Peace you shall not find!
Internally you juggle
what you can not abide,
creating a perpetual struggle
from extreme opposing sides.
You only end up losing
this  fight wit… Read full post »

"You And I Don't Need Words"

How many people think this is good enough to be in a greeting card? I would REALLY appreciate your feedback, PLEASE.

You and I don't need words.
We don't need to clutter our mind with thoughts.
We already have so much clutter in our life.
You and I are so relaxed with each other.

"Standing the Test of Time"

It's time to take things slower.
Time is like a theif in the dark.
Though we want to get much closer
stand too and close you'll miss the mark.
Won't we know so much more
by standing the test of time?
People always in a rush, what for?
Like they're running from a crime.
I'll be here tomRead full post »

"Each Child a Gift of God"

Each child a gift of God
Black, yellow or blue
with one limb
or with two.
Each child a gift of God
Intelligent or cognitively impaired
slender, stout, in the middle
bald or fully haired.
Each child a gift of God
Rich, poor or middle class.
Living on the streets
or in a house with manicured … Read full post »

"No Fiddle-Faddle"

It's so steep.
The climb's an uphill battle.

Yet I'm in deep.
But I won't respond to foolish prattle.
You're a lost sheep
gainfully reap
if you silence your own rattle.
I'm up the creek,
in a boat without a paddle.
No place for the meek,
a wild horse without a saddle.
'Cause what I seek
is… Read full post »

"Internal Maze"

When I come up against
your sheer resistance
I know that you're holding the reins
to your controlled existence.
Pulling on them
with all of your might.
So safe do you feel
when holding them tight.
Do you not know to love
is to surrender?
That which you can not give up.
That which you can no… Read full post »

"The Stain"

The devil breathes his firey flames.
Making his quest, the flesh he claims.

Once their lips part with tongues.
Immortal sin encroached the young.
Lay wasted with bodies spent,
as if by chance, by accident.
Someone here has lost their soul.
Hell the eternal, bottomless hole.
But you can no, ne… Read full post »

"With a Little Dignity"

When darkness looms on empty rooms
do you stand stone cold to unfold your soliloquy?
Biting your lip you trip.
You're not so posed though, wishing you were more willowy.
You snap and break on every take.
Rise and fall, beneath it all, temptuous and so billowy.
Wrestling yourse… Read full post »

"Running Treadmills In Your Mind"

You're on a path of disaster
where there's nowhere for you to go.
Your feet are moving faster.
But you'll never get there though!
The wind has made you blind,
running treadmills in your mind.
You're at the same place you've started.
A journey that has no end.
It's been years since you'vRead full post »

"If You've The Aspiration"

When you reach out, does it sneak out
your trepidation?
You can hold on for so long
your hesitation.
In your wrath where lies your path,
your destination?
It's no thrill to stay still
in your stagnation.
When you were younger you had the hunger.
Now you've starvation.
Work you consume doesn't leave … Read full post »

"The River's Running Dry"

Have the colors bled out of you?
Will you fade to black and die?

A monumental stone face.
Expressionless, each vacant eye.
The river's running dry.
There's no promise in goodbye.
Have you lost the last breath in you?
Are you down to just a sigh?
Have I met with sheer resistance?
Do you no longer tr… Read full post »

"The Rain, The Leaves & The Dirt"

If I can't be the trees
I'll blow around and be the leaves.

Caught in a breeze.
Maybe I'm just meant to fall
and tumble to the ground.
After all my colors bled
they lay in one huge mound,
there on the ground.
If I can't be the sky
I'll be the falling drops of rain
each time I cry.
As you run for… Read full post »

"Picking At The Scar"

You thought you were together.
But she found you in a mess.

Didn't she strip you naked
long before you got undressed?
Does she still pick at the scar
tearing apart just who you are?
When you introduced her to you
didn't she walk right in?
The more you ran for cover
the deeper within your skin?
Does she s… Read full post »
