Satisfaction, Shared (a poem)

Satisfaction, Shared
Written June 18th, 2013

The pit was filled briefly.
Alas, now emptier
Than before.
How foolish of me;
I curl up in the sheets.

He says nothing,
Although he must sense
My disappointment.
He only has time
To ponder his own contentment.

He has no touches for me
Why would he?
His touches are fulfilled
But I, I am
I was filled materially
But drained emotionally.

Come Home to You (a poem)

Come Home to You
Written on June 12th, 2013
When I was a child

In days I cannot remember

I dreamt of planting flowers on the moon
As I looked up into the night sky
In early September.

I envisioned a career in agriculture
Working long, gratifying days,
I dreamt of artistry and sculpture
A menagerie of colors and paints.
As a veterinarian, I would mend and heal
Make loving pets out of the sick and faint.
