Seduced – #RomanticTuesday


Her silence was interrupted

By the touch of his lips

And he smothered her mouth

With a warm luscious kiss


A sudden crushing embrace

Left her head spinning

Leaving her speechless

And inwardly grinning


Hands began frantically

To grab and tear clothes

This sudden turn of events

Left her quite literally exposed


Consumed by desire

For his sudden affections

She succumbed to his needs

Without any objections

So many words…


So many words

You’ve quietly said

Now swirl around

Inside my head


Beautiful words

Filled with hope

Keep me going

Help me cope


Loving words

Flood my heart

With the reassurance

Of a brand new start


Difficult words

Wisdom that hurts

Often feeling

Cold and curt


Secret words

Between you and me

Comfort my soul

And set me free

Lord hear me…


Lord hear me now

As I speak to you today


Please help me along

This unmarked pathway


Neither one of us is certain

Of what we should do


Please help us make decisions

Which are honoring to you

Where did yesterday go?


The screen alights

His zombie like face

Nothing more to life

Than time to waste


The phone she holds

Has become her only friend

The life they once knew

Has come to an end


Remnants of lost yesterday’s

Pass them by

And bittersweet memories

Have left with a sigh


Why did those happy years

Ever have to go

It seems there’s nobody left

Who will ever know

Do you…?


Do you ever just wish

You had someone to talk to each and every day

Someone who would always be there

To chase those gray clouds and pesky cobwebs away


Do you ever just dream

Of someone who wouldn’t be afraid to hold your hand

Perhaps they’d fly away with you

To some distant faraway land


Do you ever just yearn

For someone to stay close by your side

To have someone to laugh with

And perhaps even for moments to cry


Do you ever just wonder

If someone like this really does exist

Seems like if they did

They’d be very hard to resist

Love… beyond a shadow of a doubt


I’ve loved you for as long as I can remember

Maybe even more

I’m still not sure how or when it began

But our love has endured

We’ve faced mountains of opposition

And still we continue to hold on

I have loved you beyond reason at times

Even feeling foolish for doing so

There were times when I questioned everything

I cannot forget how you tore my heart in two

Or how you decided to mend it all at once

The patching of it was quite painful

Like a threaded needle piercing my flesh

And yet I wanted you to do it

I figured how else could I ever live

I couldn’t very well survive with a gaping wound

So I gave you a second chance

The opportunity to fix what was broken

There are days now when I hardly even notice the scar

And yet others when it’s still all I can see

You were the one person I could trust

The only one I had ever truly loved

But the inconceivable sins of life crushed us

Both of us were literally smashed into the ground

And normalcy hasn’t been the same since

Perhaps this is progress right here

In these words and in the light of each new day

I’m discovering that I would rather die

Than to let you go from me

The shrapnel is still buried deep within my chest

A burden I will likely take to my grave

Yet I know I have no other choice

Because if I were to try and let you go

My soul would still cling to yours

The bond is too strong and the knot too tight

It’s simply impossible to fully pull away

And so I’m trying desperately to let you back in

To trust you again the way I once did

And love you beyond a shadow of a doubt

Making a memory


I made a lasting memory

Of your face today

As you sat on the bed

You happened to glance my way


Your eyes then stared back

Gazing into mine

Capturing that fleeting moment

Almost lost in a second of time


Never will I forget

The look upon you face

The meaning behind your smile

Will never be erased


Entangled thoughts lingered

In the space in-between

And you stole my longing heart

In a moment I hadn’t foreseen

If you were gone…


If you were suddenly taken away

My heart would rupture into a thousand pieces

So I pray with the last bit of strength and energy that I have

From this old suffering soul of my own

That love will cradle you in the palm of his hand

And keep you ever safe and free from harm

I’d be even more lost than I already am

Without your sweet face in my life

And time would miss you to infinity and back

And the world would cease to be a welcoming home

It’s been awhile

Since I’ve put pen to paper

Seems the ink

Has begun to dry out

Trying in earnest to imitate

The stale blood in my veins


My heart no longer beats

The way it once did

Seems the song it used to play

Is lost in a place

Which I’m convinced

Never really existed


Beneath that old oak tree

On a moonlit night

Could only have been a dream

Since it’s become a mere vapor

Of a memory

And doesn’t stir my soul any longer


Vacant is the only sound remaining

Yet it courses vigorously

Through my veins

Solitude and emptiness

Cause me to question the residue

Which lingers faintly in the stagnant air


And like a handprint

On a mirror

The love I gave away

Was easily forgotten

And simply wiped away

When it was at long last remembered

I want to be…


I want to be the girl

Who makes you want to live for tomorrow

As you begin each new day

I want to be the difference

Who brings meaning to your life

Whenever you have doubts

I want to be the pages

You look forward to reading

As you sip your morning coffee

I want to be the one

Who causes your heart to skip a beat

Every time we’re together

I want to be the only person

Your heart longs for

When you look up at the stars at night

I want to be the joy

Which fills your life

And cause endless smiles to brighten your face

I want to be the love

Which consumes your heart

Making you feel as if you’re the only person who exists

I want to be your dream

Your wish

Your everything…

Because this is what you are to me  ❤

I see the real you


I see the real you that’s hidden from sight

I see the real you as you inwardly fight

I see the real you and wish I was there

I see the real you and want you to know I care

Meet me in my dreams…


Meet me in dreamland
We’ll fly to the moon and back
Our playground awaits

#MidnightMadness – 5/21/2017

My daughter and her husband have started a YouTube channel.  Check them out and subscribe!  😉

Searching for you…


I’ve been searching for you

In the gloominess of the day

I can’t see your face

Don’t seem to hear what you say


It’s as if you’ve evaporated

Right before my very eyes

So I call out to you

Reaching up toward the skies


And still your sweet voice

Is missing from my day

An empty kind of feeling

Surrounds me as I pray


My heart feels quite heavy

Barely feel you anymore

I want to see your glory

It’s you I implore
