You Were There

I walked in
The pub
"Ye Olde King's Head"
In Santa Monica,  CA
To meet a friend
You were there

The girls
And I sat in
A booth
British accents
You were there

We talked
About our lives
My moving in
A week
To foreign shores
While drinking tea
And wine
You were there

Your smiling eyes
Of blue
Stared into mine
Your laughter
Rumbled deep in
My soul
While we were
Treated to
Sticky toffee pudding

You were there

A Pirate's Life For Me

When I was
But a wee lass
Me dad
An old salt
Did take me
Out to sea

A Man-O-War
She was a beaut
Manned by corsairs
With long
Flowing hair
It ruined
All landlubbers
For me

With a heave ho
We weighed anchor
And hoisted the mizzen
Set sail for parts unknown
In search of booty
Ripe for plunderin'

I learned to love
As I grew
Me sea legs
And grow I did
On that
Land for me
Was no more

I can weave
A merry yarn
But I'll not
Blow the gaff
And take the risk of
Me hangin'
From the yardarm
Keel haulin'
'Neath the hull

A pirate's life
Is hard
But ne'er dull

It is the only life
For me
And one day
I will be
Buried in
Davey Jones locker
'Neath the sea

Dark as a starless night
On a new moon
You slinked silently into sight
With feline grace

By your side
A cunning serpent
Slithered by coldly
It's clear intent
To strike boldly
Then vanish
Without a trace

Why have you brought
Chaos into our midst?
My mind screamed
You think an innocent tryst?
You naive fool
You were a play thing
Nothing but a tool
Oh how I feared
As I looked upon
Your guileless face

Befriend not the devil
My dear Luna
For he will charm
And disarm
Until you are left
A sorry case

Missive To My Lover

To my lover dear
Where my heart doth dwell
May I whisper in your ear
Of how I love you well

May I kiss your brow
To soothe your pain
If I could, I would, right now
Make your troubles wane

So read this missive
As I pray
For it is all I have to give
I just wanted to say
That I pray
Tomorrow is brighter
And brighter still
Each and every day

Pantoum - Tis Difficult

Tis difficult to bare my truths
For I would have to look upon my flaws
And find myself diminished
In my eyes

For I would have to look upon my flaws
The horrors that will reflect
In my eyes
As the tears well

The horrors that will reflect
My mind will reject
As the tears well
My pride will hold fast, for

My mind will reject
What is plain to see
My pride will hold fast, for
Tis difficult to bare my truths

My Side

This is me
My words aren't pretty
But they have a story
They can tell

This is for you
You know who
I've seen all
That you do
Hiding behind
A blank face
But your words
I know too well

These lips
You have kissed
This body
You have touched
But your time
Your precious time
It wasn't mine

I gave you
My love
There was no one

I gave
So many tears
Enough to fill
My grave
But you
Wouldn't give me
What I craved

You strung me along
Every day a new song
I spent alone
You were
By my side
If you loved me
As you say
You would have
Found a way

My love has withered
It has died
I can no longer hide

All the time
I spent alone
I created
A new song

Now my lips
My body
My time
Belongs to me
Because I am free
To choose

I choose
To be happy

So spiteful man
Spill hate
As much
As you can
You are finally
Spending the time
That should have
Been mine
But your words
Can not touch me
For I no longer care
Just know
That I know
That behind
Your words
Is the love
You should
Have shared

Mr. Hummingbird

Mr. Hummingbird
Dressed in all
Your finery
Gems of rubies
Catch the light
As you fly by

Swooping down
Chasing away
Your rivals
A fierce raptor
With sword aloft
From the sky

You come a-calling
Several times a day
Standing sentinel
Across the way

I can almost believe
It is my company
That you love

But alas

It is only
My sweet nectar
That you crave

You greedy
Greedy knave
