Demons Inside

She wasn’t certain what demons would be waiting when she turned the corner. It was worse thank she feared. Stopped in her tracks she stood face to face with the only creature she was afraid of. Herself.

A cascade of tears

Flow down my face

My heart becomes

A cavern of empty dreams

There is no next chapter

Written from here

I must start over

Hone a new craft

That will become me

Hold my head high

And wear the crown

That carries hope

Dream Lover

I used to know you
As a boy

A boy and a girl
Who knew nothing
Of love
Yet in our hearts
We loved

I saw you
In my dream
The other night

Like dreams
Throughout the years
I would see you
In a crowded room
And I would not be able
To reach you

Last night
I found you
And held you
So tight
As if I knew
It would be
The last time
I would see you

We kissed
I felt it
Throughout my body
I felt you
Inside me
Loving me

We laid together
In loving embrace
And you looked
Deep into my eyes as
I woke.

Tears

With the tears of joy
Her eyes sting pleasantly
Overwhelmed by
The birth of a child
A beautiful poem
A great work of art
People loving one another

With tears of pain
Her eyes burn in anguish
Overcome with sadness
The death of children
The hate in the world
Cities burning to the ground
Aspirations fading

With tears of hope
Her eyes embrace the pain
Trusting the world will recover
And love will flourish
