  • Auntie Jean

    Wonderful Auntie,

    Beautiful Jean,

    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…

  • Spark

    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…

  • Goodbye, Valerie

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Out Together

    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…

  • 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, …

  • 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 …

  • 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…

  • Five Years

    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. …

  • Ultimate Goal

    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…

  • Heartbeats

    Happiness is.

    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…

  • Love Hesitates

    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…

  • Morning

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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,

    I…

  • 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,…

  • Letting Go

    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…

  • Engaged

    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…
