Are you going to stay this time?

I tried to avoid this Barricading the door. But I let you in through the window anyway. You left just as silently as you came. Two years later you’re knocking again But I can’t get hurt this time.

First Touch

Wrap your arms around me and I’ll do the same with my thighs. First touch and your blood rushes in. One look from you  and my heart’s ready to break  free from its cage. You shiver when I kiss you there but our love will burn up these sheets.   -Nov 2019

Making Time

Memories of you swim in my mind as I gulp them down from my 3rd glass. I’ll flirt with someone else just because they remind me of you. My mind runs all day  but it always has time for you. Can’t you make time for me too?

News on my Third Collection

I had been modeling my previous collection formats by very excellent, well known Poets published by big name companies. As a new, small time, self published poet, that’s really not the best idea! Big publishers want more material from their poets, that’s not necessarily what the readers want.

MOTHER KNOWS BEST

She’ll never know the young woman  she could have been if she didn’t  grow up under your hawk eye criticism. You talk about her big Italian nose and her spilled out thighs  as if that nose didn’t come from you and your mother. As if her first breathe wasn’t between yours.

Waiting on You

You’ve always gone at your own pace which leaves me hoping and waiting for you to finally want me as much as I have wanted you. Would you tell me  when it was time to let go?     -Oct 2019

 THE DUST FLIES IN OKLAHOMA

You come around long enough  just to let him down before your tires start spinning again. After the rubber burning smoke is gone you still leave him standing here alone again. The same tail lights have daunted his dreams Since he was just 5. He gave up hope long ago  that you would ever be any father of his.

Finally Together Again

We drive around in the moonlight You tell stories about work and your hometown. I’m riding your passenger seat  trying to hide the smile  that knows I’m weak for you. You could take me anywhere just as long as we’re side by side.   -Nov 2019

Darling Blues

Oh darling, won’t you swing those sweet blue eyes my way? Oh darling, I see the way you’re smiling at him and I wonder what I could do to have you look at me that way.   Oh darling, I promise you tears only from too much laughter and when the pain comes I promise to hold you through it…
