Not enough

Leave a comment

I can love you
In almost
Any which way
You may need

But I can’t stop
This hairline bleed
That drips
Dissatisfaction

I can’t feed
That constant ache
That rips
Apart two halves
Of one whole

I can kiss
Colourful circles
With pink lips
Along the tips
Of your soul

But I can’t
Stop this
Nattering pain
Of just not
being enough

So I go slowly
Achingly
Insane
From the pressure

And the failure
To fill the void
Between perfection
And reality

Not that way for me

Just a game
Queen of hearts
Nothing
But another card

It’s not hard
To hear, just
Another dinner

To be clear
It wasn’t much
No silly entanglement
Deep connections
Or such

Rather a way
To pass time
Nothing better
To do
Or so said you

Things I think

Leave a comment

I write
And I ponder
And even wonder

Sometimes I feel
And I cry
Or I laugh

Is this poetry?
Or just life?

Which is mightier
Pen or knife?

Or the tongue
Sharpened pink
Tip
Edges past closed lips
To speak

So maybe it’s prose
Or emotional drivel
As I whine and snivel

To complain
Sometimes refrain
Instead thank

Words that love
Or muse
Or spank

Stanzas rank
With weighty woes
Highs
Then lows

So dear reader
I’m not certain
What you seek

I simply speak
Through word
To be heard
To be true
To you

And also me
But you see
What is real
And what is not?

When I loved
Or when I fought?
I guess
I’ll never know

Wasted wishes

1 Comment

All those pennies
Thrown hopefully
Into the well

Shoulda used
‘Em to sell
More of my charm

Or maybe wishes
To keep my fragile
Heart from harm

But I dropped ’em
One
By one
By one

Knowing
I was done
Even before
I’d begun

Self evaluation

I sit here, ponder
Will I ever
Be enough?
Will your mind
So softly wander?

Over here to mine
Stay with me awhile?
Kiss me Until it
Just fades away

Leaves me snug
Even though deep
In shades of grey
Demons of doubt

So far, far away
And your arms
Wrapped around
Keep me safe
From harm

Loving me

The sun is peaking through
And I’m so in love with you
You’ve been with me

Right from the very start
You’ve got gumption
You’ve got heart

Sometimes you laugh
Like nothin’s wrong
Sometimes you crumble
And just fall apart

Your pretty green eyes
Shinin’ out amongst
Speckles of freckles

The sun is peaking through
And I’m so in love with you
You’ve been with me

Right from the very start
You’ve got gumption
You’ve got heart

Echoes of giggles
Promises of those
Happy little sighs

And hot tears that crawl
From days gone by
And I ain’t gonna lie

She’s scares me a bit
That little girl inside
Who’s happy just because

Maybe I’m most afraid
It’ll never be as it was
Before she growed up

I suspect it’s not that
But what I’d really be
If i just let go

The sun is peaking through
And I’m so in love with you
You’ve been with me

Right from the very start
You’ve got gumption
You’ve got heart

Brain teasers

Leave a comment

Kisses from lips
I turn to liquid
Slip slickly
From your fingertips

Sticky
Warm puddles
Brain muddled

From whatever
Voodoo magic
You’ve played
With your tongue

Left me electrified
Every last drop
Of resistance

Flung haphazardly
To evaporate
Back into you
