*BEAM*

Standard

Then the sun showed up
Kissing me ever so deeply
Illuminating me from the inside out
Driving clouded melancholy from my heart
Bringing peace to my mind
Just like that, began a rhythm
Through me shone Love like the one you lost, only real
And I give it to you with every smile
You’re left inspired to kiss another, ever so deeply
Beginning with the sunshine in your eyes
From ‘Heart of a Queen – Poetry and Prose from the Soul’ 


Alone With Self and Consequences

Standard

This poem was written years ago but will finally be put into print with many others in my new book, “Heart of a Queen – Poetry and Prose from the Soul” coming January 2013
I think I’ll sit atop trees to cry these tears of mine so that people may say,
“Oh, it’s raining again,” instead of, “damn, she’s crying again?”
I sometimes wish that a thousand bugs would crawl across my skin
Leaving small bumps as evidence of their feeding so that I could think of that and not of you…
I want to drink until I black out so that I may have no remembrance of the look in your eyes the first time we met.
I wish that scientist and surgeons would all come together to perform a revolutionary procedure removing all memories of you and me that are still creeping around in my mind…
I would like to be circumcised so that I may never touch myself again in an attempt to relive how it felt to make love to you…
I at times desire to have my hearing lost so that I cannot hear when people ask if I’ve seen you, or how have you been?  Because I DON’T KNOW!!!!!!
I want to have my hands removed so that I might not reach for you…as you walk on by…
