Between the Lines


The poetry rhymes  
or doesn't  

The flowery 
angry 
or heartbreaking words 
are  
released 
upon the page 

Stories 
tug at heartstrings  

Flooding emotions 
scream and cry  

The darkness within 
or without
finds its way 
through my fingertips  

What appears 
upon the page 
not always in my 
control  

My muse takes 
me on

Rides 
I never dreamed of  

Places and people 
never seen

Stirrings 
emotions 
never before
felt  

My exploration 
of the human experience 
captured 
laid bare 
upon the page

Somewhere 
between the lines
I find myself

The Island


Let's go there now.  

This island 
you've built 
for us.  

I see it surrounded 
not by the sound of the surf 
but the beating of 
your heart next to mine.  

No sun to warm us 
instead 
we bask in the glow 
of love's flame.  

The sun 
shines down 
on our little island 
and the tropic nights 
sing our lullaby.  

Our island.
  
Here.
    
With you.
