Between the Lines

The poetry rhymes  
or doesn't  

The flowery 
or heartbreaking words 
upon the page 

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 

My muse takes 
me on

I never dreamed of  

Places and people 
never seen

never before

My exploration 
of the human experience 
laid bare 
upon the page

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 
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.
With you.
