ONE
There is only one phrase
that I know sets my heart
to singing; it’s such a simple
phrase, but it means so much.
I love you, the one thing that
could mend everything if people
would let it; the only thing that
matters to me in my world. Give
it a whirl in yours with someone today.

TWO

when I’m feeling down
and there’s no one to save me
you take the time to hold me
and whisper, I love you. Nothing
calms the fears and uplifts the
spirits like those three words do
It’s like a salve to a burn on my heart
magically the pain just seems to go
away; no more worries, no more
sadness; happiness is here to stay

 

 

 

Note: I just couldn’t help myself. I had to go and write not one poem, but two poems. I felt inspired. Anyway, I hope you like. Let me hear from you down in the comments.


Peace.

I decided to challenge myself by writing a dozen six-word stories for the DP Weekly Writing Challenge. And boy, it was not easy. This is my first time writing such small tales. I did my best. I hope you enjoy.
She choked ‘til she bled out.

She turned as the knife swooped.

Stop it. But the knife refused.

No! Her hand pushed back futilely.

Blood seeps through the cracked door.

She wanted love. She died alone.

Lone figure stands on edge. Jumps.

Go fishing. Something pulls you under.

Go to college. End up homeless
♦.
Build a house. Lightning sparks fire.

A dancer. Crazy traffic. No legs.

First time skydiving. Excited. Parachute fails.

Anger Controlls Him

It takes a long time for me to express my anger at anyone. I’m a slow burn; I put up with a lot of crap before I do anything about it. I guess, my natural inclination is to keep the peace. Once I blast off, I tend to get over it. Somebody has got to really piss me off for me to still be grumpy about the situation. So, I decided to write a free verse about it. It’s just a piece I quickly wrote. Be kind with your words if it doesn’t please you.

 

 

Love

anger simmering beneath the surface
does no good for your soul
holding it in only makes you madder
don’t make the situation worse for you
release the fire within and be no sadder
your heart will feel much better
once you let go of the fodder
turning your soul to poison
take a deep breath and let the love in

Two Hearts Beat As One

The day I met you
was the best day
of my entire life
bar none
I saw you at the juke
you were playing cards
with your friends
nursing a beer
sitting by your hand
you didn’t notice me –
at first
but I noticed you
after I came
through the door
and my heart
hit the floor
leaving me breathless
and dismayed
I’ve always heard of
love at first sight
but never believed
it could happen
until that moment
and nothing was ever
the same again
you’re my confidant
my lover
my best friend
I will love you
through the end
of all time
even after I’m gone
from this world

 

 

I decided to write a poem commemorating my first meeting with my sweetie and father of our three kids. I don’t regret a single minute since that day fifteen years ago. I hope to have another fifteen years and so on. Just taking it day by day.
