Dark Heart #writephoto – Crow

**This is in response to Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompt.  You can find out all about the fun on her page HERE.  

Dark Heart —

A heart dark as night

You cut to the quick

With a tongue

Sharp like a knife

I will not

Speak your name

Bitter in my mouth

Like a foul pill

Your soul

dirties my memory

Sandalwood and Patchouli

You smelled of Sandalwood and Patchouli.

Zeppelin on the turntable, smoke in the air.

Boone’s Farm Strawberry, the flavor of your kiss.

We were bullet proof and would live forever.

Tomorrow was a given, it would take care of itself.

On curled pages.

Yesterday’s tokens,



On yellowed paper.


Waiting to be remembered.

Slip Sliding Away

I had it.  Dammit!  I did!  I had the Perfect line!

I’ve been playing around with an idea for a poem.  It may still happen.  I’ve got a rough draft.

I was sitting outside with my little dog while he did his business and thought of the PERFECT line for this poem.   I thought, “Oh, I’ve got to go inside and write this down RIGHT NOW.”  So I quickly go back into the house.

Buy the time I get in the house, sit down and open up the laptop, its gone.  It just slipped away!  Arrrrrgh!!  I’ve got just a whisp, a hint, of what it was and I wrote that down, but it’s not the ONE.

SO frustrating!

Do you have things like this happen when you write?  What do you do to solve it?

Under the Willow

Kiss me under the willow.

Shadows dancing,

dapples your smile.

Lush grasses cradle us.

The wind whispers

Tickling my skin.

Embrace of summer

Limbs entwined.

My heart sings

With your touch.
