Soul Mate

My heart knew you before it met you.
You, I have waited for all my life.
So familiar like the back of my hands,
Only I just met you a while ago.
Unless I had loved you in another life,
Lived in your heart like you did mine.
My heart flutters when it heard yours.
Although not of passion but of a whisper,
Telling yours of our meet in another time.
Every kiss, every sigh, a reminder of before.

Stronger Than Ever

I spiralled downward
onto the debris
that was my life
broken and scarred
to the marrow
still I rise
from their ashes
stronger than ever

Plagued with nameless dread
drenched in sweat
pounding heart and jittery limbs
terrified terror
clouding my days;
darkening my path
still I break free
from their grips
stronger than ever

Lily

            Fluttering and billowing
                   in the breeze,
                   a bevy of lilies;
                     awaiting ~
                  beauty’s sting.

The Morning-After

       as daylight ushered in
           the morning-after
              all promises made
           in the heat of the
                     moment
                 now smothered
             by the heat of our
                       passion ~
         we watched helplessly as
            their crumpled fragments
                   ascended in the
                            beam
