Birthday gift

1 Comment

There aren’t enough
Or bows

To wrap
This love I have
For you

That just grows
And grows
And grows

As you blow
Out your candles
To mark
Another year
Around the sun

I want to give
You so much more
Then what
Fits in a box

Just so much laughter
And fun
Until cheeks
And we roll into a pile
Of upturned faces

Days and weeks
Of sun
Full of green spaces
Hand in hand

To waters edges
And pinky promises

Where for moments
The hourglass
And the sand stand still

And we take our fill
Of happiness
And kisses

And silly wishes
Just grand enough
To come true

And more trips
around the sun
For me and you

Inside this chaotic mind
thoughts push
And pull

Bully one another
For the opportunity
To press rewind

Before they line up
One by one
Row by row

To repeat
Every unkind
Out of the blue

Come unglued
Cruel commentary
Of self doubted thought

Self taught
For naught
Word, by word, by slicing word

That strips the confidence
From these bones
In condescending tones

Until the only thing left
Is this child
Inside this woman’s mind

She’s obviously
Out of her league
And what were
they possibly thinking

When they thought she
Was worthy
Of such lofty pursuit

And now they’ll surely find
That she’s a fraud here blinking
In her empty head
So little to be said

Moments of Sunshine

Little pockets of space
To try and erase

Tensions race
Warm embrace

And I sit here
Raising my tired face
To the sun

Not to come

Never satisfied

Leave a comment

They line up
For their turn
Arms crossed
At the wait times

Fingers wagging
At everything
I’ve surely missed

Subtly nagging
saying the words

All the while
The motivation
To find solutions

Yet wanting

But inevitably
not liking
My answers

Little reminders of faith

Leave a comment

Words are churning
Acid burning
Holes in my gut

Tears down my cheeks
As I sit and fight
This voice inside my head

Tells me it’s just not enough
And as I do what I do
To ease the pain

Surf through social media
To escape this world
Endlessly scrolling
Mindlessly trolling

I see your smiling face
And remember the day
I looked through the lens
And took that shot

And the knots
start to unwind
Just a little bit
And these unkind
Inward thoughts

Turn from roar
To whisper

Where I still know
I can’t do it all
but must have faith
That somehow

It’s gonna to be okay
And there smiling back at me
Your smiling eyes

And the love I see there
I know somehow
It doesn’t lie

Sweet dreams

Sweetest of dreams
My dearest love

May the man
In the moon
Softly croon

Until you fall
Into my arms
And we dance
With the spoon

Before we
Giggle like children
Then tumble down
Into a pile

And the cow winks
And says he’ll
Be back soon

Then it’s just you
And me
Arm in arm

Lip to lip
As we sip
From this endless
Tap of love

That drips
From our eyes
To our souls

Takes all
Our broken bits
And glues
Them back together

Us perfectly

Before the sun
Comes up
And we open
our bright eyes

Sunset love

Leave a comment

Shades of greys
And hues of blues
Likeness to your eyes

Where I can look
For weeks
Soulfully seek

In my happy sighs
When I think of all

The reasons
That make up the why’s
Of my love for you

So true
That this changing
Sunset sky

Cannot possibly
As I relay my affection

Every reflection
Of my souls
To be yours
