Touched by love



scarred hearts
~ afraid to be loved, to be touched

they wander just on the outskirts
of paradise lost
unwilling to take the risk
of maybe falling into the darkness
losing love once more

but love refound can heal some scars
and make the heart go dancing
round the sun and the stars
and back again
exquisite bliss for the time
simply being touched again

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown
