Truth in Her SmileShe smiled at you, as she held out her hand -- What is this about?
She said she cared, stepping forward -- I am suspicious
She made a dish for you, with a heart on it -- Is something wrong?
She said, so quietly, she would cook dinner -- Would it be poison?
Finally, she said in not so many words, I love you -- Does she really?
Making her smile, reach her eyes for truth -- This is shocking.
It was then, that you disappeared, quietly -- I must run
Dismissing love, because you did not have it -- Inside of you.
A Day -- of Weatheri think it was just that one day -- i cannot remember the weatherA Day -- of Weather3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
it was a day i would never forget -- it was probably sunshine and hot
it was the day, when i lost my faith in you -- it was summer after all
when my heart was destroyed, i sat there and heard -- mid summer, to be precise
that, in my time of agony, my time of destruction -- the winter was yet to come
you were too busy, to answer my call, too much to do -- leaves about to fall
i stood alone again, not sure of what to do -- there was chance of rain
and my heart broke...slowly as I hung up the call -- clouds dark
if only I knew the troubles to come - tear drops started like rain
Six Word Stories - Life, LoveNaturalSix Word Stories - Life, Love3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The rainbow dripped colours of happiness
The newspaper read, folded away, gone
The suitcase packed to the brim
Her hair tore out in bits
Dances slowly across the spiders web
Nowhere to go, a lonely road
Cold snow, dry ice, black curve
Love, Happiness, Sorrow, Peace, Education, Change
The Camping Man
He had never seen the internet
On her death
He reached for a strand hair
Sign a death certificate for two
My head is on backwards, happily
Sound sweet -- to those in love
Lost love Songs
My heart bleeds, turn it off
Sent shivers down my inner soul
Held hands, as she faded away
My dogs death
I felt her soul, disappear away
Being busy -- puts off the agony
Lost love questions
Asking people, who have no answers
The Brady Bunch Magic
Lied to us, it wasn't true
3:00 AM ConfessionsEvery time I think about it3:00 AM Confessions2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Vicious thoughts flood my mind
Every day that is spent alone
Reminds me of what I once had
You don't talk to me anymore
The rumours you spread show that you no longer care
Hurt me with threats and insults
Inflict loneliness on me
Go about with your own life
Hide the truth about us
Understand that we are different people now
Remember the bad times and forget the good
Tell yourself I don't matter anymore
Say goodbye forever

The Cats BellThe Cats BellThe Cats Bell2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's the smile of internal happiness
The cat lays on the bed
The fighting is almost over
As he rolls through, playing dead
And there he is purring
And the second cat, turns about
They start there playing chasey
The purr turns into an almighty shout
And they both just disappear
To the corner of the room
Licking their scars of silence
It's a cat's sudden and awful doom
It's a fight that continues on
One looking, and claws stuck out
Until finally in the open
There is one almighty shrill shout
And there I introduce
A little tiny toy
A bell out there hiding
That they chase around like a little boy
They both quickly forget
And off they take for fun
Chasing around the garden
The bell, glistening in the sun
And now as I see
A few months down the track
They are busily preening each other
Friends, preening and purring back
What made the bell so special
That stopped their fighting so
I just sit there slowly disappearing
As I hear the rain on the roof slowly go
I just walked over
