the open road
the road beckons and I will answer I will ride Highway 65 until my gas money gives out and leave my tired Buick in a soft ditch with the kudzu I'll walk until I find a place that touches me – a soft patch of cool grass with a view of the whole big sky – a quiet place where I can lay myself down and no longer weep with weariness the stars will shine down from the sea of night and I'll smile when I close my eyes knowing I can now run on forever

The winter solstice has passed. Winter nights will shorten, hearts warming with hope. And from the soft, hushed darkness, a new sun begins to rise.

it's not the eggs or milk or bread that I'm after it's the sound lonely is quiet and when the silence screams I must fill it with other people's noise

he's good to me we eat at nice places and never argue he's gentle in bed but he isn't you we lived on peanut butter, ramen noodles and the world faded when you came into view disappeared utterly when you took me in your hands he loves me you almost killed me with your leaving but if you roared back into my world tomorrow he'd be forgotten by the time we reached the highway

some nights, dreams aren't enough when the ache runs deep, I need more than remembered embraces, imagined trysts, more than hopes of tomorrow, next week, next year I want the truth of your bulk beside me when I turn in the dark, the reality of warm skin not my own, the unknowing of lonely but you're not here (and no one else   will do) so I will toss and turn in the cold arms of my dreaming once more

Resistance weakens. Perhaps it is I needing more than you can give. Fear arises from desire denied. Love helps us leave fear behind.

It might have happened, the moment might have blossomed, but you drew away. Forgive me, but you beckoned with eyes that needed too much.

once, happiness was as simple as silver dangles on french wires and frosted pink lipstick then he came with dark hair and darker smiles, his bright blue eyes lit up when I walked in a room and happiness became complicated the nights... oh, the things we did in the dark (the light of day would have blushed had it seen) we swallowed each other whole like bottles of bad medicine, the kind that makes fools jump off buildings trying to fly but we were greedy, gorging on each other until we could hold no more happiness left with him now I dream again of happiness as simple as silver dangles on french wires

Challenge Feature
Lovely Work I only had three people work with my poetry challenge, but they did great work. Here's their feature. I hope you'll go by and visit the galleries of these great artists. Thanks for dropping by, Cindy :heart: "Untitled" by ~Tuishimi (https://www.deviantart.com/tuishimi) The Summer winds Blow heavy Blow hot Levy of desert living Desert life. Not for water Blowing dust But for knowing Ancient beaches Sands of time -- Passing reach History's arm. :heart: The summer winds blow by :iconarthisa: heavy and hot. My wild hair is whipping my cheeks, but       I don't care. I am leaning out of the window to catch the sun on my skin smelling wonder

I've been away for years and not sure you're still here. But just wanted to say I've missed your poetry. Heart
