Can't Let Go

Pinterest

Recurring nightmares of loving you

still make me sweat.

I can’t take back honest words—

words I don’t regret

saying.

 

I’m honestly happy

you’re better off without me.

I don’t ever want you to

feel like this.

Lost without a kiss…

Feeling inadequate or passionless…

That part of me

is bearable and unfortunate.

 

Swollen from crying—

tears I don’t want you to see.

Just do me a favor…

pretend you’re smiling for me.

So I can pretend

that I can live like you do—

blissfully happy without me.

Days of December

Days of December
my least favorite—the sixth
Child of Winter
another year older
Your birthday wish is on my Christmas list
Forgiveness

Passionate love-making
on that icy dawn
Our bodies sweating,
moaning and aching
you and me on a sheet of melted ecstasy
Gone

Days of December
remind me of you
Warmth I can’t remember
unable to thaw the memories of having her
My frost-bitten lips still whisper,
Happy Birthday…from someone you knew

Her Vows

I’m a bit nervous writing this today,
confessing the words I know I can’t say.
So, if you don’t mind
I’d like to take the time
to say what isn’t mine.

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

I wish I can tell you, “You look great in white.”
and how much it hurts me with her at your side.
Her hand on your ring
I whisper silently
the words that came from me…

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

When it’s all over, I’d like the chance
to have and to hold you in one last dance.
Swaying in starlight,
you lean in and I can see it in your eyes
telling me, “I’ve always loved the way you write.”

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.





Here's a Magic Trick

With sleight of hand, you grabbed my attention.
You guessed correctly from every card drawn from my emotions.
I give you my two cents and you turn it into a dollar.
Your eyes burn with passion—like wild fire.
When you dunked, gagged, and handcuffed me,
I came out unscathed, smiling, and happy.

I couldn’t wait for the Grand Finale!
There’s one more trick that I wanted to see.
It’s the one with a box behind your back and performing it on one knee.
You had another act in mind,
the one where you disappeared and left me behind.

It seemed too surreal to be tragic.
The art of illusion was your greatest magic trick.
