You Alone ~ #RomanticTuesday #poetry

Speak to me
in muted tones
Words,
like fragrant flowers
bloom
Whisper
to my soaring heart
Intimate thoughts
take over,
consume
For you,
my love,
my one,
my only
Can save me
from my darkened soul
You alone,
can calm the fears
You alone,
can make me whole

Past Her Prime ~ #poetry

They were right on the tip of her tongue

Things she needed to say to him

Perhaps she left them, where they were young

Back in the days when life was a whim

She’s different now, not so perfect

She wonders how it might have been

If he had looked beyond the face

To find the beauty that lied within

The years have passed, and she’s grown old

He’s been gone now, quite some time

How sad the bitter memories remain

Of a girl, now past her prime

When children giggle

Frolicking through autumn’s leaves

Joyous sounds echo

The First Mate ~ #poetry

The captain was nowhere to be found

It seemed his boat had run aground

Through starlit night and moonlight glow

He vanished in the undertow

Or had he disappeared from sight?

Did he, from his ship, alight?

Has he found his newest haven?

Or been swallowed by his first mate, Raven?

The bird will never tell, my friend

Of how the captain met his end

Once vibrant and spry

We grow older and wither

Like the autumn leaves
