  • Hearts' Mending (3)

    It hasn't been so easy, shifting from

    Our college days, our ev'ry hour together,

    And sharing all our thoughts; to then become

    A lone alumnus, sister without brother

    -

    Like Wordsworth, stranded in a city German,

    I was adrift, in hostile land, alone.

    Beset …

  • Hearts' Mending (2)

    There's no one else who's helped me know my self,

    My heart, without dissembling or disguise.

    You showed me how; I put fears on the shelf,

    And viewed myself with sympathetic eyes.

    -

    That was a boon beyond all former gifts!

    I'd never guessed that I'd had …

  • Hearts' Mending (1)

    I'd like to call and ask if you'd stop by.

    It's been too long! We really should catch up,

    But ev'ry time we visit, I get shy;

    I'd like to change that. Come, and fill a cup.

    Whenever we're together, it's the same:

    It seems no time has passed. Our friends…

  • The Rocking Chair

    People think that all ghosts are bad, but they are wrong.

  • NaPo Day 19

    Is there someone who can teach me

    How to make and keep a friend?

    For it feels as though my every start

    Too quickly meets its end.

    My head tells me it’s all my fault:

    All my ways just seem so strange.

    I’m too quick to love kind people;

    My age falls outsid…

  • An Intrusive Thought

    I hadn't heard from you in several days, my dear close friend. Sunday when I thought of you I was suddenly sure that I would hear from you later that day, and that you had decided that it was best to stop all contact with me, that you could not feel any m…

  • Lost for Eternity

    A friendship gone

    Forever lost

    Indiscretion

    Brought the Frost

    So much in common

    Yet years apart

    So many differences

    Lies of the heart

    Deception takes on

    Many forms

    Resulting in

    Abandoned norms

    Out of sight

    Not out of mind

    Ease of pain

    A Difficult fin…

  • These Nine Years - 9.11.14

    These short nine years,

    have gone by so fast,

    Our lives intertwined by-

    love and trust - so vast.

    From boys to books,

    our friendship never

    dared to forsook

    because it is forever.

    As we grow old-

    -er, our secrets - untold,

    our lives separated,

    by time an…
