If you are lost, can’t find a way

Like a search light I shall find you

Pluck you from the stormy seas

And turn the tides to shore

If you get scared when their monsters’ play

Like a blanket  I shall cover you

And tuck you close, be your shield

It’s all just smoke and mirrors

 

So hush sweet angel

No more tears

I’ll stay right here, beside you

Through the brutal and the beautiful

I’ll love you for all time

Rebel Soul

You have winter in your soul

I watch you.

Your story, silenced
By monsters
That prey in the light

I know you.

Forged by Love and Loss
A rebel soul
Cut down

I feel you.

Your scotch taped heart
Pressed against my chest
Drums a warrior’s cry

I love you.

Believe in heroes
Hold my hand
Together, we’ll charm their dark

Spring is just round the corner

Artemis and Sailor

The sky was clear and the moon full.

He whispered, “Love is a powerful drug.”

Artemis blushed.
“Show me an ocean,” she murmured, “ I’ll summon a tide to save your stranded soul.”

His eyes narrowed.

“Show me the moon,” she said.
I’ll pick a star to light your path.”

In that moment he understood how it felt: addicted.

Charming

Charm me, darling

Perchance I forget

 

“Behind every song is an untold story,” he said.

With a gentle nudge

He whispered, “Come dance.”

 

The notes began from silence

And in the still, I fell

Drunk on him

 

Time signatures filled the room

Apollo cradled Calliope

As the music played on

 

Lyrics overtook me

Words slipped like honey from my tongue

I spoke

Of never-ending summers

Starry nights, we chased till dawn

Of sea shells and ocean waves

A siren’s lilting song

Candle lit moments

Before time left me wondering,

Is there any poetry left?

 

He pulled me closer

As the music played on

 

Music painted on silence

Gave wings to my soul

Strong magic

Lifted me from the ashes

 

He kissed my broken

Poured the poetry back in

As the music played on

 

~ Apollo and Calliope

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Queen

Forget gold.

Give her love

Fleet and fierce

Defend her heart

Pull the daggers from her back

Be a Storm Watcher

Give her shelter

Brush the snowflakes from her tangled hair

Speak words that matter

Honest and true

Have a heartbeat that quickens

at a fingertip’s touch

Give her love

She is worth your time.
