Trick or treat

October 31, 2016

In the shadows of the night
Goblins ghouls giving fright
Trick or treat the game they play
Thank you for this dark day

Costumes worn head to toe
Fears seem to come and go
But at midnight the day is done
The tricks on you, I’m no one.


Your calling

Once you told me this:
The beauty of tomorrow
Is realized today.

From one to the next

October 29, 2016

Some days
My routine
Just becomes
I need to stop
Step back
And see
That I’ve made it
From point A to B


October 28, 2016

Oak and granite
Fire and stone
Fears so ancient
Chilled to bone
Loss of love
Like loss of life
Eternal damnation
No paradise
Regretting choices
Made so fast
Wishing to fix
A jaded past
But in the end
The elements hold true
Never breaking
My love for you

Wait and see

October 27, 2016

One day
The two of us
Will be free
For now
We will wait
And see

Routine (anything but)

October 26, 2016

Anything but
When tasks pile up
But barely
Heavy hearted
When will I be


October 25, 2016

Since we first embarked
Your smile was luminous
Lighting the way home
