Inked with Love

sweet things (poem)

Jan

don’t cry
there are still sweet things
summer kisses
from a child’s lips
not ignorance, love
but innocent bliss

dance our war (poem)

Aug

we conquered cities
we stomped our feet
danced our war
to every beat
of our twin hearts
and no retreat
cry, my love
the taste is sweet

burden (poem)

Aug
16

we are tired
of the heavy places,
the deep tirades,
required graces,
every word
you ever spoke
from the day
my eyes awoke

Transcend (poem)

Jul

Look into my butterfly heart
Look beneath my tight furl’d wings
In the cocoon, that dark, close part
There transcend terrestial things
I’ll wake soon
And leave cocoon

Feathers (poem)

Jul

Two broken wings
Taped together
Maybe we can’t fly
We keep each other warm

dawn echo (poem)

Jul

echoing into the darkness
shines the light
open my eyes to brightness
newness of sight
shake out my newborn wings
and rise in flight
