Sweet and Sour III -Bliss

I saw you in my dreams today A magical scene from a fairy tale Your arms wrapped tenderly around me As you smile into my hair.   I longed to kiss you so In the endless spell of your embrace But I stayed still and whispered your name A call you heard as you smiled … Continue Reading

Sweet and Sour II -Chicken Heart

Doom-doom! Doom-Do0m!! DOOM-DOOM!!! My heart thunders an ominous message. “Life is never a fairy tale” it whispered. Clutching the air like a wayward child I force rabid pain off my chest.   They say what an adult sees sitting down, A child can’t see standing up and giraffe-ing. If I could see the road I … Continue Reading

Sweet and Sour I- Wooed

I knew this day could come When I would yearn for you so much Like one starved for air   Was it not just yesterday In the quiet of the night When you so lovingly asked me To be yours?   Was it not just this noon With the sun streaming around us That you … Continue Reading

Bull’s Eye

When cupid flies delightfully by, Past memories tend to sidle along Coy and sly, instead of shy Chortling evilly as they plant doubtful seeds When that fateful bow is pulled Vivid visions ruthlessly assail Worrysome and scary, instead of soothing Hinting a harvest of blood and tears When that arrow quivers in the air, Time … Continue Reading

Cherie (My Forever Friend)

The sun and stars I wish I had, Gifts for one beyond compare, But the blessings of God are all I wish you.   Gold is treasured for it is special, Diamonds are valued for they are rare, You are cherished for whom you are.   Flowers may pale, fade and wither, Seasons may change; … Continue Reading

Caring not if it’s for our good Wailing like petulant children,   We long for the dramatics The sky turning … Continue Reading

Constant Change

Once the drums start rolling We march forward. Stiffly. Upright, uptight and ramrod straight Not giving in an inch or bending To the throbbing tom toms of life   When the wind starts howling We press on doggedly While wise old trees gently sway To that age-long tune the wind plays So it might not … Continue Reading

With Fiends Like These

There they go again Their devilish eyes sparkling with mischievous laughter On their lips, the ever friendly smile is fixed As they beckon you to come closer And enter the web of their comradeship   Manipulated, you inch closer And with each step you take A great union is assured And just like a Venus … Continue Reading

My Heart’s Wish

Wish I could tell you my dreams They are so full of you and laughter That I am always tempted to linger a little longer In those dream worlds of mine   Wish I could read you my thoughts It is a journal of endless joy So full of life that I cherish each and … Continue Reading

Time -Then, Now & Later

The past, like every nightmare had Has haunted for too long Robbing the present of its haven Where will the future ever rest?   The present, like every breathe taken, Drips away as time ticks Taking every treasure moment And locking it in the past.   The future, ridden with every wish and hope Struggling … Continue Reading
