Newest Deviations

Distance, time
no obstacles
to true love
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 0
Via only one sense
Scentless flowers
Seen through glass
Timeless beauty
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 0
Regret's sting
Sleep, a dream from which I cannot awake
Claiming my soul, a thirst unable to slake
Hunger for passions I don't understand
Yearning to reach for and grasp your kind hand
Heart aches from regret real and imagined
Words on lips continually fashioned
Never speaking aloud desires for you
Hushed tears leaving behind a morning dew
A glistening sun, your smile burns up dread
Extinguishes terror just in my head
A kiss between friends offering new hope
Enriching both our lives, giving us scope
Into the future you and I will go
Together or not, will we ever know?
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 0
Balance Act
On the fence
Looking at each option
choosing none
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 0
Finding something within
Words flitter and steal through my thoughts
Forming perfect things of which to say
Yet when the moment arrives, words fly away
Passage of time should ease the fear
Instead, frustration grows and keeps it near
My wants are real and can be fulfilled
If only I could speak them out loud
My true feelings would be avowed
Knowing not what the future brings
Its burden grips tight my heartstrings
Courage to be found from within
Allows myriad possibilities to unfold
Our entire story has yet to be told
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 0
Ultimate question
beautiful smile
capturing my soul
falling in love?
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 0
Worth the effort?
meant to be
you and me
so it seemed
until you deemed
yourself unworthy
not seeing clearly
what i see in you
and know to be true
a beautiful heart
is a fine start
to the person you are
when seen from a far
up close and near
it becomes very clear
you are much more
and all I adore
together is easy
talk never cheesy  (though I think this poem is becoming very cheesy!)
a barrier is there
don't know from where
trying to break it
with guile and wit
taking a shot
worth it or not
I can't tell the future
it is an adventure
I hope to take
with you in my wake
see what can be
between you and me
it is not a test
but maybe the best
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 2
Waiting for the answer
patiently watching
flower petals fall
determining fate
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 3
Spring Fling
fresh spring growth
with promises of life
thorny choices
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 2
Friends from my life
all see me the same.
Have I not grown?
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 0
Next door neighbor
on wafted air
scent of fresh mown grass
stirs my loins
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 3
batch of twigs
gathered in a bundle
left behind
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 2
intimate moment
raucous birds
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 2
constant washing
it grows and grows
needs a trim
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 4
seeking contact
the press of lips and hands
leads to deeper meaning
:icongorghte:Gorghte 1 7
The Who Haiku
heading out
to Townshend -
I spy the Moon
:icongorghte:Gorghte 0 7


Tired but unable to sleep.

My brain just would not turn off tonight. Many things running through it and I will need to decide which things to express.

As usual most of these things involve women which tends to make me very unlikely to express them properly.

It is my only resolution. To express things more and give myself a chance.

I had a sheltie named Jodi, and I love your avatar so much because of her. I really giggled when I saw how this looked! :D
