Saturday with the Muse

She’s back…the Muse was on holiday. 😉

believing a thing,
even with emotion,
is not truer
than knowing it

sleeping in could be
one of life’s sweetest
pleasures…may the
dreams never end

another dawn breathes life
and light into the darkest of
nights as if to say it is
never too late for a do over

when we awaken from
this nightmare with its poison
smoke lingering, some may
come away with hearts of ice
but for those devoured by
dark secrets, remembering…
morning will never bring peace

Saturday with the Muse

peace is a cool breeze
on a starry night
morning’s blush, velvet
seas and the breath of
desire for what could be
lingering in our hearts

gentle is the heart,
true is the soul
that lives life
in a spirit of love
and peace

Saturday with the Muse

healing is a long time
coming for those poisoned
by the lies of fools
remembering things
that never were

gentle falling is
soon to come
with the darkening
of days and
frost murmuring
softly on the breeze

keeping an open heart
takes a good bit of
hope and faith when
one’s innocence has
been regarded as
nothing by powerful
users promising the moon

Returning

the tide
sweeps the strand
reclaiming beached remnants
of cockles and shell shards; the sea
yearning

Anything

nat-hawthorne


anything

look at you, absentmindedly twirling
a wisp of perfect golden hair ’round
slender fingertips, hint of a smile, lips,
velvet petals, parted, revealing pearlescent
teeth, a laugh, pleasant, lilting, crystalline
blue eyes, sparkling, that quickly look
away from too intense a gaze…you don’t
know how beautiful you are, coyly
denying the adoration of those poor
souls ensnared by your loveliness…
you hardly notice your true devotees
pricked so deeply by love’s poison dart
they would do anything for you, truly
anything…I suppose that’s why
i hate you…i do…i hate you
