Secret Get Away

Now it looks like a cold lonely place.

Oh how I long to see your face.

Come near to me my dear.

I don’t ever want to instill any fear.

Holding your hand is something I miss.

I distinctly remember our long good night kiss.

This bench was our secret get away.

The tranquility was one reason to stay.

Our emotions for each other couldn’t be measured.

The memories are most definitely treasured.

The blanket of snow may melt

but nothing can take away what we felt.

Deep spiritual love is graced upon so few.

Why does everything remind me of you?

Dancing Tulips

The tulips are dancing in the cool summer breeze.

Would you hold me and dance with me please.

The photographs of us are like a slideshow on the screen.

We dance in my mind like we were teens.

We have matured just like the tulips have bloomed.

Our like minded thoughts are perfectly in tune.

Our eyes meet and they dance with laughter

as we remember all of the love that remains after.

We get older as each tulip petal falls to the ground.

It doesn’t even make a sound.

We are like the tulips in the fall of their life.

I am so gracious to be called your wife.

As the last petal falls to the ground

I’ll say I love you and I’m so glad you’ve been around.

Baby Swing Those Hips

She’s walking down the street.

I would kiss her feet.

Look my way

cause I’d beg you to stay.

Oh darlin give me a chance.

Our love making would be enhanced.

Let me run my fingers through your hair.

I would do it cause I care.

Baby swing those hips.

I want to kiss those luscious lips.

Please don’t break my heart

cause I’d fall apart.

What color of roses do you like

cause I’ll send then tonight.

I’ll always remember your name.

It’s forever burned in my brain.

You might think this poem is lame

or that I am compeletely insane

But I had to tell you how I felt

cause it’s the card I was dealt.

Oh how you make my heart melt.

Preachers Son

Preachers son do you know what you’ve done

just because I didn’t give in to your desires sexually?

I was a believer in goodness and God.

You took it all away with the letter I got.

You said you found someone who met your needs.

What happened to all of your beliefs?

Why did you have to make mine crash in defeat?

Preachers son do you know what you’ve done

just because I didn’t give in to your desires sexually?

I was a believer in goodness and God.

You took it all away with the letter I got.

I went to the mirror and put my make-up on.

When I was done it was a stranger I was looking upon.

I dressed like a siren in heat all because I couldn’t accept defeat.

I let go of God’s hand and the devil took his chance to use my pain and despair.

He chose what I would wear.

The Child Inside Of Me

The child inside of me still wants to be free of the fence surrounding me.

The fence is so high I want to fly to my home in the sky

where I’ll be free of the emotional pain encompassing me.

There was no love at this place called an orphanage.

They didn’t care very much.

I was withdrawing within building a wall to protect myself

from the emotional pain I’m going to sit on a shelf.

I can dust it off and start with a clean slate starting on this date.

Only time will tell what emotions are sunken deep in the well.

My heart feels like a black hole instead of having a soul

searching for the warmth of the sun to lighten the load

leading to a better traveled road.
