The day was humid, the sun was still high
While I waited for the gray mini van
Hundreds of colorful cars sped right on by
Finally they came; one red and one with tan
Both were hyper and fuzzy, a boy and a girl
With light brown eyes and noses of dark pink
The red stayed, while up his sister did curl
On a blanket alone; both small as mink
My puppy was brave and showed not his fear
For he whimpered only once before he slept
Agile was he, like all kinds of brother deer;
Only loving and he was never unkempt
Guarding me from things that were proved harmful,
Always there, my dear beloved dog Carmal

I can't move on, I can't live on without you. You're my muse, you're my other half.
"I'm going to do it." She spoke to me from the internet, "I'm going to end it. I don't want to worry anymore. I don't want to worry about my future. I don't want to worry about living up to the expectations of those I love."
I stared at the screen in shock, wondering if she meant. Surly, she didn't? I whispered out my reply as I started typing it out, "No " I typed out, "You'd be hurting me...so fucking much...if you left. It sounds selfish...but you know what...I'm a selfish person when it comes to those I love. I love you too much to let you go. I will never leave you before you're ready. I promise. Oh God...just please...don't do this. It hurts even talking about this...I can't live without you. You're everything to me. You are strong. You WILL survive. We'll grow old and die together. Please, honey, don't do this."
I can hear the voices, begging you

a fragile, delicate jewel.
Given me, in nonchalance
used, like a careless tool...
Those days gone by like big white clouds
passed through serenity;
a time stood 'still'; captured and framed
in this place called memory.
Where birds sang, sweet and soft;
the wind, caressed the tall grass.
Where innocence, was the eye of a doe;
a beauty, come to pass...
For there came a time for learning
the winds of change
whipped, and turned;
through all lives 'unsuspecting'.
What the future can never relearn.
Lost without your LoveThe rain is tapping lightlyLost without your Love1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
outside on the tender leaves.
I look through the window
on this cool summer night
caressed by a gently breeze.
I am missing you deeply inside
staring blankly, into space;
curtains blow softly
against my skin
tears of love, run down my face...
Staring, for the longest while
never realizing the passing time.
Trying to find the pieces
to make it right
the words, to make it rhyme...
For how can I ever tell him
let the deepest part of me show?
That I'm lost without his love...
How will he ever know?

my thoughts, only I know...
Since the day I left you
it's been raining, constatly
for days in a row.
As I sit here watching
I quietly ask myself 'when'
will I begin to smile?
Will the sun start to shine again?
For love with you was beautiful
so beautiful....at one time.
You had a way with words
a way, of making them rhyme.
On and on, endlessly
your sweet voice filled the air;
making me feel the love you claimed
- though, it was never there.
Now here I sit remembering
sweet memories, of then...
Hating myself for loving you
and wanting you back again.

without a word,
nor a glimpse.
I created a thousand coincidence
yet, I still couldn't see your face.
My heart still whimpers,
each time I whisper your name,
all the girls look like you
and every scent smells
just like your perfume.
There was a time when
I was your savior,
A knight on a mighty steed
Our fingers were always tangled
in a blissful embrace,
you never let go
I was always there,
to drive away your fears.
My shield is rusted,
the bed is empty,
and it's still hard to breathe.
Your shadow dances to my sorrow
while I shiver alone,
with no one to hold dear.
