Our Love Song

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , on June 6, 2019 by dustus

Love, I know you’re right
When you tease that I’m not wrong
It took too long to realizeĀ 
That Life is our love song

I heard you’re free
And now I know
You’re spirited & strong
Still I would rather die alone
Then simply just move on

A world of hate could kill usĀ 
Time mends the worst of harm
Still we could block out all the pain
In each others healing arms

It’s you & me
Nobody else
Love will make that call
Still I’ll be there to catch you
If you should ever fall

 

Lovesick

Posted in Short Poems with tags , , , , , , , on March 6, 2019 by dustus

When winter days feel empty
Ahead of spring’s warm thrill

It gets me through the worst of time
To think she loves me still

But that’s just wishful thinking
Straight Bourbon with a pill
When coming down to realize
It’s not worth feeling ill

 

An Abject Prayer

Posted in Poetry, Short Poems with tags , , , , , , , on February 19, 2019 by dustus

It’s not because she’ll tease me
Or make me wish I’m there
Trick my mind to thinking
Someone truly cares

It’s not the song within my heart
Or how she can’t compare
To any love I’ve ever known
Beyond an abject prayer

He thinks she might know
Her love waits upon rocky beach
For reason unseen standing there
Alone before they meet

Fall Again

Posted in Image Poetry, Poetry Reading with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2010 by dustus

It’s because we fall again
After summer’s glow
Awakens feelings in time
You know

Resistance cannot understand
Veins like maps on leaves and hands
Folded, covered by the land
Awaiting autumn, life felt grand
So much love I cannot stand

Decomposing soil states
Absorbing matter after breaks
In all glory seldom late
Perhaps an early heated space

Taking this moment
Fate peaks in stead
Fall again
To be human

Cherished gifts float peacefully brief
Nature rains confetti streams
From under earth soon harvesting
Growth through cold air
Inspiring
