A Little Extra Spice (a poem)

A Little Extra Spice
Written April 16th, 2012
She’s not so different from me-
I mean –
Look at our grades
We study;
Diligent students
We dress tastefully,
Elegant and sharp
…with a little leg
And our hair is long
Silken brunette waves
Hers is a bit more curly- wild
But I guess that’s the symbol
Of what sets us

Please Smile (poem)

Please Smile
Written April 12th, 2012
My sweet angel
With eyes so bright
Please don’t cry
Have no worries tonight
I’ll always be at your side
No need to ask why
Please smile; joyous and wide

My sweet angel
With hands so soft
Please don’t cry
Let me wipe the tears
From your grey-blue eye
My heart is yours
To keep through all the years
That you have chosen me
Fills me with pride
Look at me, handsome one
Please smile; joyous and wide

Premature Rose (a poem)

Premature Rose
Written April 12th, 2012

A twisted malformed highway meanders inside
Coated in shattered glass and broken things
My legs are strong and carry me in stride
In my pretty head a free mind gives me wings

Elegant skin glows with soft sunlight
A picture of fortune and health on the outside
Yet on this paper I finally speak of a fright
I feel when the twists and pains leer on the inside

I grit my teeth, pretend it’s not there
I may as well run from my shadow at dusk
There’s no place I can go beyond its stare
I fear the inner scent of death and musk

(Dear Marius) Celebrating February on Easter (a poem)

Dear Marius
Celebrating February on Easter
Written April 10th, 2012
The sky is drawn up in pastels
And the wind carries a gentle chorus
Of chocolate coated childhood laughter
This colorful young day last year
You slipped from my grasp
We frolicked one last blissful time
Before you disappeared on a musical wind

Have No Fear (a poem)

Have No Fear
Written April 10th, 2012
This world is big
Floating in an infinite
Expanding universe
Darkness lurks
There’s hatred here
But have no fear

Your smile is wide
Atop a delightful
Infectious laugh
A sweet soul
Innocent and pure
But have no fear

I’ve walked so far
Across an unsure
Endless sea of time
To touch your love
To feel you near
I’ll shield you from fear
