Love, you old bastard
You did it again;
I trusted you
Despite the nail and cross that lay beside you
I walked toward you
Despite the sword hidden among your coat of midnight skies

Love
My old enemy
You win on the battlefield once again
I have submitted to your whims
And honey dipped…

a micro poem

I believe that Love is crooked and a fool
for if I cannot be with the man I truly love,
I refuse to respect it
and if I cannot be with the only man I will ever love
then Love, is truly dead.

the lover is opponent
love is the dance of war
for only the river between two souls
can truly keep the score

Keep in step
keep your sword in hand
for you must be ready
this is the dance of love and war.

Kama. Painting by author.

Oh attachment
bound my soul up in barbed wire
and my body in chains
Suck the life-force from my veins
drink me dry
tease me with dreams
and sweet honey dipped fantasies
sing me songs
with your charming voice
marinate my mind with
empty things…

fill my heart with beautiful…

He yells at me
at the top of his lungs
eyes bulging from eye sockets
telling me to grab the phone
My pulse quickens but I say “no”
turning around to make my breakfast
He yells again
Louder this time
“No” I say
for the wind lacks the power to knock down the tree
I…

I am sorry
For mistrusting you
I am sorry
For not listening to you
I am sorry for neglecting you
And instead trusting a force outside of you.

I hope you can forgive me
For all the times I tuned you out when you tried to speak
I hope you can forgive…

My soul brother
I fought beside you
— I remember
The look of faith in your eyes before battle
And the way you held your blade in hand with a smile
I remember
Lives ago
Dancing with you beside flames of gold
Playing music of our ancestors
And legends to remember…

a Poem

Here
You will not only find peace
But uncover the deepest wounds
Long buried underneath

Here
you will journey the path of healing
and your journey will be yours unique

Here
You will find magic
And in doing so
discover the magic within yourself
And fall in love with it
over
and over
Again
