What we were told not to talk about

It is Father’s Day in the Southern Hemisphere, which prompted these words, along with the writing challenges, the integration of both together became the inspiration for this poem . . . The woman A daddy has gone Don’t tell anyone darling Please, not just yet * A husband has gone A heart is broken AContinue reading “What we were told not to talk about”

How to be a woman

Welcome to the mind Of a girl interrupted Realistic, honest, positive A girl who grew into a woman Possibly probably fabulously corrupted * Femininity shone from her effervescent presence Belief in her spirit echoed Devilry, mischief Her sweetness evanescence * She knows what she wants Stands up for what she believes At the risk ofContinue reading “How to be a woman”

The fault in our starsl

From her tippy toes to the top of her head Warmth rising Flushing her cheeks To a glorious rosy red * Giddiness, joy, elation Her head did spin Was it champagne Or the thrills of daily life intoxication * A beautiful memory A face looking at her Feeling nostalgic oh dear how young we wereContinue reading “The fault in our starsl”

Misunderstood

Somewhere along the way You had forgotten how to care Monotony, boredom, your complacency laid bare * You turned and walked away From what your eyes did not see Ears that no longer heard the words A fate sealed by a minds decree * A heart misunderstood Quietly clouded Thoughts in turmoil Emotions shrouded *Continue reading “Misunderstood”
