destiny waits….

Destiny waits
for the heart
to awaken.
When Beauty arises
stifling all reason.
Bringing light
to the darkness
if only for a moment.
Love becomes everything
and everything has meaning.


My soul fades into you
as the shadows
turn to dust.
Remembering each Moment.
Remembering each Touch.

feeling you near…

Feeling you near

my heartbeat races.

Looking down to breathe

hoping it passes.

Eyes can’t hide

what it all really means.

Words can’t escape

that long dreaded silence.


Remember that night

or was it real?

A lucid dream

spinning out of memories.

That moment of clarity

as you held me in your arms.

Making me feel safe

in a world that’s not ours.

Love falls away

as the dawn begins to break.

Fading into the shadows

of another new day.


lovers fade….

Lovers fade

into memories and dreams.

Awakening the pain

of a love they can’t keep.

warm wind sways….

Warm wind sways
each blade of grass.
Barefoot and free
she escapes at last.
Dreams she hides
and will not tell.
Laced with hope
her love still grows.



Breathings of a heavy heart
laced with hope
before each dawn.
