Unlovable

It is easy to love someone seen as good,
always understood,
one shared neighborhood.
Not so simple for those perceived as bad,
hard to understand,
all alone they must stand
.

Try to find a way to walk in their shoes,
breaking old abuse,
providing new views.
What if life was changed? What if they were you?
wishing help came through,
not knowing from who.

Standing within light surrounded by dark,
recognizing sparks,
being kind leaves marks.
Traced smile on their face, throw some joy their way,
watching as fears sway,
flying far away.

Anger soon subsides as pure hearts now guide,
love will challenge pride,
clearing paths once tried.
Forgiveness leads fate, release worn mistakes,
new days can create,
kindness can cure hate.

Angel

Composed of white light,
guardian of my dreams.
Protecting my nights,
while calming my screams.
Owner of my heart,
with abilities
to create fine art,
reliving each scene
.

He whines back the hour
in any wound clock,
then proves his powers,
destroying all locks.
To fix it again,
all effortlessly,
while clicking a pen
so consistently.

Teaches me to paint
a transparent smile,
releasing restraints
with genuine style.
He wears many wounds
from battles with life,
resembles the moon,
builds towers from strife.


Together we climb,
he sews me some wings
with silk thread and vines,
close our eyes and fling.
I learn how to fly,
secure by his side,
floating past the sky,
he cures me inside.

Amoretti

My heart becomes a butterfly,
whenever I feel you near.
Your arms provide my comfort,
scaring off my greatest fears.
Your presence has been heaven sent,
wiping off my silent tears.
Your aura a refreshment,
making my heart bright and clear.
Your joy is contingent on mine
Your pure soul flows undefined
You point out truths showing signs
Reflective love, defying time.

Love

A platypus fell deep in love,
with a fierce hawk flying above.
One day they met, a friendship set,
their heartbeats formed a great duet
.

The platypus was known as Jane,
her beloved hawk was once named Shane.
They played each day, under sun rays,
enjoying laughs when skies turned grey
.

As Jane exposed the love she felt,
Shane loved her too and promptly knelt.
Followed their hearts, right from the start,
they vowed to never be apart.

Some differences soon came to light,
Jane felt inadequate at sight.
She could not fly, lacking hawk eyes,
inside feeling her worth had died
.

Loud silence made Shane feel uptight,
he knew that something was not right.
He went for flights, promptly each night,
searching for ways to make Jane bright.

A new idea soon came to him,
to find out why Jane had turned dim.
He talked to her, nuzzled her fur
said they should become what they were.

Jane soon explained what she believed,
he smiled at her feeling relieved.

Do not feel shame, my life you changed,
enhancing it in unique ways.

The couple soon went back to peace,
as everyday their love increased.
Though not the same, they are twin flames,
eternal love they both proclaimed.

Presence

Shadowed dancer
take me on a stroll,
take me to a place,
no one else can go.


Walk me through the walls
chase me up the stairs,
look inside my mind,
tell me I am there.


Expose the mystique
that life tries to hide,
sweep me off my feet,
as your light unblinds.


Share your tune with me
my rhythm is yours,
dance in harmony,
one heart beating pure.

Hush

A silent story
forever untold,
muted tales
can not unfold
,
with no words
emotions sound,
exhausted hearts,
fall to the ground.

When old souls meet
fate repeats,
this time winning
all defeats,
sweetness gives
intentions pure,
entangled lives
a future cured.


Retracting time
as stillness sweeps,
a massive bounce,
land on both feet,
whisked through space
then planting down,
a flowered maze
in my hometown.
