Wistful

Old pangs sneak in

Not always in the cover of night

An ache, loneliness

Deep and hollow

Not to be filled by a shared touch

A longing, stretching over a lifetime

Not soothed by laughter

Emptiness, once filled with time

Now feeling the depletion

Of time slipped away

Every day holding hope

Hiding the truth

Letting a smile shine

Praying for that eternal love

Understanding it may never come

Not content with superficial covers

Searching the depths of the soul for an answer

Learning to love herself

Beg My Lover

Really I don’t mean to beg

Thoughts of you have filled my head

Your lips on mine, please take my hand

You’ve lit a fire I can’t withstand

In your arms I want to be

Through my desire I can not see

Only you can quench this flame

You only have to speak my name

Please don’t make me wait too long

My need for you has become so strong

Your touch became a drug to me

Lover please do hear my plea

Forever Friends

Would it be too easy

Fall into your arms

Would we not regret

Weary of our charms

Conscious of the pain

Others must not be harmed

Now I know I love you

I must hold my peace

Allowing life to settle

I slay the inner beast

When it is your ready

Which ever way you choose

Just know that in our hearts

We don’t have to lose
