Whatís In A Name? Glad You Asked.
Had I the option of selection,
This four syllable monstrosity-
wouldíve been a single
Having no choice in the matter,
there is no point in lamentation.
Astonishingly only my family
poked fun at rhyming my
name with a venereal disease.
For I am not damaged
by the unmerciful teasing at the
hands of my wretched siblings.
When they werenít looking I took
gleeful delight in hiding their toys,
or tossing them out.
Growing into my name I felt it
my duty and...

Dear Diary, 2nd Pathetic Entry
Sadly, I report Iím still a grown woman with the mental age of a Ďtweení. No change there since last I wrote you.
Still trying to get the hang of writing poetry. Not really sure how to measure my improvement.
The poets on DU write poems with maturity and every word accounts for something great. Mine read like a third grader at recess.
Heigh hoí I suppose it doesnít really matter in the end.
Iíve been seriously thinking about contacting this man I had a thing for years ago. I canít pull the trigger on it because thereís a...

Thereís always an end.
A choice is made to see it coming.
Like summer camp for poetry,
Every day for thirty days~
I wrote a poem.
The hook, it didnít have to be great.
The bait, it could be about anything.
The lure, was the Trophee at the end.
An extraordinary thing happened.
Along the way
I met and became

Adrift among the shooting stars
Pale moonlight blankets the earth
Gentle dark night offers refuge
Away from searing illumination
Take flight amidst a dreams refuge
Where pain and sorrow go to rest
All is released to heaven for repair
Defeat oppressed chains unlocked
Awake the new day praised
Where hope refreshed sings
Dejection itís faded grey hues
Are but a memory cleansed
Gratitude for this new day
To amend and forgive again

Tipping that precipice
Where the earth
and the astral realm
into its place.
All the weight,
of every burthen-
as the soft
the physical being.
Awash the feeling
of the Milky Way,
in its hazy array
with warm assent.

By any other moniker...
Else how can one and all
Get away with random thoughtlings?
Arrested grammatical development.
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † linear
so steeped in metaphor
As to confound-
the most stalwart of sleuths.
Its fantastical, sobering affects offering release, catharsis-
to all in need of an embrace
no other language might equal.
Will you countermand this theory?
Methinks you wonít.

Stripped of your PLANET status
to Dwarf Planet.
Was it really necessary?
To make such a fuss,
itís only crime of orbiting.
Being included- but only just.
Always at the outer edges,
sufficiently interesting to be acknowledged-
Not enough to be closer
to the inner circle.
How much I feel for that isolated distance.
Accepted with bias.
Looked down upon by a ski slope nose.
Iím ashamed to not be abundantly pretty...
Almost measuring up

A universal anomaly happened
And there we were-
Together in the same classroom.
Sniffing each other out like two feral felines.
Eventually becoming friendly by end of term.
Years went by,
discovery showed so many things we didnít have in common.
You liked country music.
You were beautiful.
I was cute.
You loved vanilla.
I liked chocolate.
We both loved horses.
The bonds of this unlikely friendship tightened
and cemented as maturity came
hurtling for both of...

Canít Last Forever
It canít last forever.
It has to change.
Change brings change.
Now weíll have something to talk about.
You donít want to discuss atmospheric pressure?
Improbable odds for riveting conversation every time we speak
only makes me want to sew my mouth closed.
Lacking the stimulating
Chit chat you crave
I scour the internet for random topics.
Itís a hopeless activity but
perhaps one of the talking points
will inspire the in depth communication desired.

A Simple Adjective
A Simple Adjective
I fear youíll see me vulnerable.
A sentiment for which I can not abide.
The very one you find most attractive.
Is the the very one I will NOT expose to you.
A life time spent mastering this most delicate weakness.
Demolished in the exhale of a sigh.
No! I wonít allow it.
Your pseudo pathos has long ago expired.
Alone I arrive.
Alone I wander.
Alone I depart.
It feels better that way.
Owing nothing at the end.
Preserved and salved by my own...

Perfect representations of
Round and round with no breaks
How life will manifest itself
In that same fashion...
Same routines, friends, mistakes
A dizzying object by design
Restrictive, constrictive, binding
There is a particular beauty
Within its structure that lures
And mesmerizes its wearer
Like an illusionist
Made to define status
Security, even love.
I prefer its cold hard unforgiving

Quiet and lonely
Nature soothes the lurking beast
Quelling rising storms
