Oh, how I will miss you,
You'll never know what your friendship did mean.
Sleep well, my friend,
Jehovah saw all you did,
In His loving memory,
is where you'll be hid.
Your positive attitude,
Your loving spirit,
Will no…Posted 6 years ago
There's a creature that lives somewhere between my ribs. Small, wild, a lover of the moon. Shaped like a lily and glowing like the warmth of a single lit match.
It was born when we met. A spark amongst tinder.
It stumbled onto its feet like a newborn la…Posted 6 years ago
The party was for Valerie. She was departing for warmer weather. It made sense. Despite being a programmer and board gamer, she loved to surf.
Me? I was a quintessential nerd and living proof that making a girl laugh, doesn't mean she will be attracted t…Posted 6 years ago
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 …Posted 6 years ago
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…Posted 6 years ago
A Friend Date
I'm going to meet my friend tonight
When we hold hands, my heart's so light
I'll kiss his face and hug him tight--
My pulses race just thinking of our date.
For months uncounted, it has been
My dearest wish, though still unseen,
To bravely ask, with…Posted 6 years ago
I don't much care just what we do,
So long as Anna's tight with Roo;
I'm always sure to love the view
Our friendship's strong, and we are going out!
We've chatted long and learned the way
To interact, share thoughts, and say
The words the other needs…Posted 6 years ago
Connected by Love (3/3)
I've learned to trust that love exists aplenty,
And that most people long to be adored.
Some think that one love's all they can afford,
But open minds can oft embrace its bounty
And love the world entire, and each in turn!
My heart, so full of you, …Posted 6 years ago
Connected by Love (2/3)
When you departed, love, you'd been afflicted
And mute so long. My strength and hope had flagged.
I felt myself alone, exhausted, ragged,
But then there came a blessing unpredicted.
I'd thought my love was dying, nearly gone,
And never to return, once …Posted 6 years ago
Connected by Love (1/3)
I'm torn, my dear. I don't know what to do.
I wish you were alive, that you'd respond
To guide me, as before--but you're beyond
Such interactions now; still, I seek you.
Just hear me, please. I lack all peace of mind.
It shuffled off just after you with…Posted 6 years ago
We talked every night. We wrote letters. The distance never diminished our love for each other. We had it all figured out.
I flew out to see you on Valentine's day. You baked me a cake for my birthday. We had Thanksgiving dinner with your family. …Posted 6 years ago
But no, I’ll stumble on, on trembling legs,
In hopes this seething street leads me to rest,
And drink this cup of potion to the dregs–
For sustenance or death–whatever’s best.
Oh, do I trudge on my, or God’s, volition?
There’s little in this that I w…Posted 6 years ago
Not a moment,
but collective feeling.
You can't pick it up,
unless it has a heartbeat.
You can't define it, because
it is ever-changing.
It's a feeling that comes when you close your eyes
and receive a kiss unexpectedly.
It is also a box wi…Posted 7 years ago
She saw him across the crowded party basement. Her heart swelled with euphoria. Her eyes sparkled. She was overly exuberant, but her friends thought she'd caught the party fever. They had no idea of her secret passion for the boy lurking in the corner.

If you feel Empty
If you ever feel empty,
Tell me, please.
I have bountiful love
I’m hoping to help you
Fill the gap and help you feel whole.
And because I have this love,
I have another offer for you:
If it’s not me you need,
I’ll willingly help you to find
The things you…Posted 7 years ago

I dreamed of my 17 year-old self. I dreamed that she got the boy of her dreams and that he made her laugh and that she grew comfortable with him. Everything was perfect, from their words to their date locations and the movies he picked, and even the way t…Posted 7 years ago
Baby, Your Lips are Cold
They couldn't pay me to love you more.
In my bedside drawer, beneath condoms, and candy bar wrappers, I keep a box for you, beneath empty pill bottles with barely legible labels.
A locked box.
Metal and hard and cold to touch, I brush my fingers acro…Posted 8 years ago
Lost for Eternity
A friendship gone
Brought the Frost
So much in common
Yet years apart
So many differences
Lies of the heart
Deception takes on
Out of sight
Not out of mind
Ease of pain

A Talent for Love
They say she's got an awesome knack
For giving people love
How can we know if this is true?
Just take it for the truth,
Or is there some way we can test
To verify the claim?
But yes, of course. Just listen to
The way she says my name.Posted 8 years ago
Heart on the Line 9.26.14
The night I laid out my heart,
turned my life outside down,
Our relationship had a new start...
Best of friends for so many years,
been through so much together,
at some point, my heart - it interfered.
Patiently - you listened,
as I talked for hours,

To Vow - It Is To Love 9.12.14
"Then the two will become one..."
is what they say,
Now, love has won -
Insecurities and distrust is frayed.
Today you vow to God above,
To honor, to respect,
but most of all: to Love -
then never have anything else to regret.
Your Bride - the radiance,…Posted 8 years ago
I saw you walking yesterday
The sun setting on your back
And as you ventured on your way
I noticed a lightness to your step
A happiness to your demeanor
Your strides were long and true
Not seeing where you were going
Or who you were walking to
Then I re…Posted 8 years ago
Smoky morning eyes made the light blur,
but I knew where I was.
I was home.
I woke just before she left,
just before she came to gently shake me
to tell me goodbye and
that she loved me
and that she'd be back in the evening.
The holes in my socks and ne…Posted 8 years ago
