[q] The rhythm is wrong
the rhyme’s unsprung

Liked that Alyosha. Nice work with the alliteration and delivery. Ooooo... my first use of the quotes option. Wonder if it will work.

[q] for another hour another day another week,
but over and over and over again

And liked the rythem of that.

hrrrm... apparently my use of quotes is incorrect. *sigh*

I Want to Let You Know
Posted: 12/1/2006 11:13:22 PM

I want to let you know
that I am here.

If you should want me
I am here.

If you should need me
I am here.

If you wake up in the middle of the night,
trembling, and cannot remember
the time before you were alone,
I am here.

I am always here.

This one is awesome Alyosha......

Buttrfly kisses

billboard in the sky.
Posted: 1/28/2007 10:15:01 AM
I once saw a billboard in the sky
as I fluttered along
not caring when or why.
It reminded me of a time
when I had no reason
no rhyme
I paused to listen,
my little wings a-flappin'
remembering prose
of those much missed
Grateful to be back
and to Alyosha

find the
piece that matches

a little red at the corner
a star
part of a cloud

not the track
nor wheel

where in fits out
out, in
angle, curve

among zillions

Speak to the child in your heart
Posted: 6/2/2007 1:21:38 PM
I love him more
then a breath away
to the deepest, darkest
parts of my soul.
He completes me.

Always a surprise
each new day.
Another side of him
to fall in love with
over and over again.
He completes me.

Love will be a little late today
Posted: 1/31/2008 5:12:29 AM
Love will be a little late today.

There was a three-car pile-up on the highway.
In car number one, the driver’s eyes
were fixed on his rear-view mirror
suspecting it was his wife’s lover
in the car just behind him.

It was not, but in the car behind that
his wife was racing to catch up with him
frantic that he had left that morning
without so much as a kiss good-bye.

Love will be a little late today,
but love is often
hurrying to catch up.

One wants to be a poet
Posted: 2/4/2008 6:38:19 AM
One wants to be a poet
but ends up a pimp.

One wants to be a pimp
but ends up selling stock
on Wall Street.

One wants to be President
and spends twenty-three and a half hours
every day in conferences,
on the phone with other
heads of state and important
legislators, with memos and faxes,
email and position papers
and anxious dreams, and
the other half-hour
wondering if anyone will call tomorrow.

Hey Ms V.! I do NOT like the way this ends!

Sorry, but sometimes the ending to anything isn't savory. It's just an ending. I had nothing further to add at that point. I can't produce fluff and stuff that isn't felt!

I could say:

She wanted to be a fairy princess
Who met her prince
And now she's off to fairy land
To live her fairy tale life.

How's that for an ending????

The pits!

Sometimes being tongue-tied tells so much
Posted: 2/11/2008 7:07:55 AM
I want to tell you–
It’s hard to say–
What? What?
I can’t find the words–
That you love me?
That, and so much more.

Reading between the lines...

<div class="quote">Its a masterpiece
Heightened awareness comes in with the dawn
Painted across the morning sky
Clouds sculpt colours iridescent
In living fantasy
A palette to paint by numbers
This gift of a new day.
