“If I Had A Valentine…”

“If I had a Valentine…”
I would serve him breakfast in bed every Sunday morning.Sad Valentine
And at night if he asked me to sing him a song before he went to sleep;
The sweetest of melodies whispering gently to his ears.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.
Bubble baths for two.
The smell of jasmine in the air.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Feeling like a million dollars with my Valentine in my arms.
Just put it in the bag. Valentine I love you and all your dirty.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Looking in his eyes would inspire me to write him a poem and share it with the world.
Of course, I don’t have a Valentine but if I did, “Good golly!” He’s gonna think I invented sex.

Wooden Walls

As I climb higher,Wooden Walls
Higher is all I get.
So, climb; I climb. And, climb; To climb.
I climb, just to climb.
This wooden wall.
A wall of wood.
On his face. Rings of time there.
A ring for his finger.
Time saved over again.
And, he knows me.
Behind my wooden wall.
I put this wall. This wall put.
Beauty encased there.
Leaves for texture.
My face is his wall.
Wooden, wanton, wall.

I’m looking in his eyes and it’s like we’re making love
Laying on my back gazing at the stars above
Is this guy real or just another dream
That song, his voice, all so vivid it seems
I’m reaching out to run my fingers through his hair
I know we were together I just don’t know when and where
If it is only a dream don’t ever wake me up
I want to stay here forever lingering in his touch

Don’t cry for me today,
I wouldn’t want it this way.
Be strong and smile,
for you will see me in a while.
I know you miss me,
but now in Heaven I will be.
Do not keep your sad face,
I am in a much better place.
Do not let your tears fall,
for I cannot wipe them all.
Yes, my life wasn’t long.
But I’m begging you to be strong.
Live every moment as if it were your last,
I won’t forget any memories that have passed.
Cherish life and love as I watch you from above.
As I remember all of the good things,
I come to see I have gotten my wings.
It is time to go and fly,
as your guardian angel I will try.
Don’t cry for me today,
I’m on my way.
Soaring through the sky,
I watch all of you telling me goodbye.




Verses that speak to character dance about the scene,BlackSwan
Dragon Lily.
So many stars in the sky, so many stars in those eyes.
Delicate as the Swan Dance
Black Swan as erotic eruption
Talk me through it, guide my hand.
Follow me. Catch me if you can.
Off in the distance, but very clear.
Very nice.
On the dance floor,
Where doesn’t matter.
The Dance.


This place that I can feel.Parthenon Temple Athens Greece
This place, that awakens me at the crack of dawn.
Summers on the ocean.
Letters that travel the seas only for me.
I was once a child. Now, I am what I make of it.
And I know that it is Greece.
All that matters to me is what is there in Greece.
All I want to remember is Greece.
I am what Greece is, I am what I make of it.
Wind in my hair. Sand beneath my feet.
Time by my side.
Petals of lavender flame.


Poetry In MotionMaking love, early in the morning.
When you love someone.
Love before you are ready.
A man and a woman who do not see each other.
Going too far and never turning back.
The feeling that you could never be understood.
A loaded gun.
Insecurity is overrated.
Everything wanted or needed in a glass cage.
Escaping to a guitar.
To be able to sing.
Sunsets from the highest point.
Overdosing when you just wanted to get high.
I love you and you don’t love me.
Ignorance of insecurity.
