Reach Out

There are those who grow up with others by their side

Family, friends those who live their story with them

Who know them inside and out

People they can always turn to for support, comfort or to share laughter and joy

What about those who have no one

For what ever reason faced life alone

Fast friends come and go

Trusting only themselves

No one to call in good times or bad

To take their hand

Those who sit alone with their longing to connect with another

Lacking the faith to allow another to touch their heart

Can the loneliness be cured





Silent Eyes

Tell me did you hear my heart

It spoke to you from the start

Words that did not reach my lips

Sang out, from my finger tips

In my mind, was only air

But my soul dared to care

Could you see it dance around

I know my eyes made no sound

The response I had, was strong and true

Yet what I felt, came from you





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




Wavering Resolve 

This is how I wanted it

Exactly what I said

Am I but a coward 

Dreams running through my head

Keep your heart away from me

Just don’t you go to far

I want you to be close to me

Not so close, you see the scars

I want to share me with you

But only just so much

I can not tell you everything 

Only that I want your touch

This is what I wanted

Exactly how I said

When I close my eyes at night

Wishes, fill me with dread

By, TJP 

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










A sadness


Deep and true

Lonely musings without you

Time that passes

One hour

A year

It does not matter

Your just not here

Thoughts and feelings

Tumbling around

Hopes were shattered on the ground

Mistakes were made

They led to sorrow

Can’t be repaired

By tomorrow

Pick up the pieces

To carry on

Gray light surrounds

There is no dawn

I will carry you in my heart

No matter how long we’re apart
