Under the Stars

Under the stars

You took my breath away.

Under the fading light 

Your kiss explored as

I became yours.

Under the smile of the moon 

Your touch pleasured as

We became one.

Final Bow

we do our best
we try to aim
to reach the skies
to play the game

to live a life
of love and stars
of peace and joy
and no more wars

but we are tied
to earth and soil
we breathe the air
of nature’s toil

it may not be
we might not reach
the dreams we dreamed
the tales we teach

our flesh weighs down
it cannot be
that we are freed
into liberty

so take a moment
and say a prayer
blow it softly
into the air

all will pass
and this we know
struggles will end –
a final bow.


He’s Arrived

I craved so much to have a connection with someone. To have a friend and a level of comfort. Of ease and familiarity. And then it happened. So effortlessly. Everything I ever waited for presented. 

He addresses me by name. He doesn’t ghost. He is not precious. He enjoys my company. He talks to me. He listens. And takes the lead. Every time. He is kind and caring.

I’m so thankful. So relieved. All I had to do was wait. After all the frogs I had the kiss, he’s finally arrived.

Hopefully Soon

I hoped and prayed and wished and tried to force the change I so desperately needed

It was all to no avail

My feeble attempts bore no fruit 

In the end all I needed to do was wait 

Wait for him to cross my path 

Wait for him to magically appear

He has crossed my path

He has magically appeared 

And I cannot wait 

To see him again
