Complicated Relationships Poetry

Forbidden

  Blinded by wrestling touch on all sides, Stiffening limbs parting, Drinking in the toxic liquid of him Pumping fast to the heat of passion Breath uneven, contemplating a picture of a different kind His actions confusing, The gentle caress, the exaggerated importance to every syllable uttered Every movement a calculated risk, hypersensitive to his touch Her, depressed rather than soothed, organically deluded By thoughts of him, an onslaught of conundrums Expressions of a love forbidden

Pub Talk

Languages blended in a cacophony of laughter Entwined, interwoven as though there were no barriers A comforting roar of non-denominational sounds Rising, lowering, uniting as one voice Diversity alive, screaming to be heard Pardoning the world from unspeakable wrongs Delivered in the name of country, One voice, One right, Instead, in this one place, at night, in a pub Many voices proclaim love, laughter No hidden agenda!

In Sync…

When life’s in sync, happiness echoes back Vibrations resonating, steady, strong Awakening the spirit Heralding the peace and solitude that settles in   When life’s in sync, happiness echoes back Reverberating-- strings of harmony Playing out life’s dreams, symphonically No room for fallen angels   When life’s in sync, happiness echoes back An easy target for unscrupulous thieves Disequalibrium, rhythms unraveled For a moment fallen angels prevail.   But, when life’s in sync, the rhythm of life resumes Not silently, nor patiently...
