Your Sorrow Follows Me #poetry

I saw them

The tears I had wept

Trailing from my broken heart

watering this cold floor

with no where to hide

they had remained

a bitter reminder

of you

what we had loved through


I heard            my cries

as if they had just escaped


will they forever

haunt me?


Wetting my cheek

once again with sorrow

I am prostrate

on the airport tiles

reclaiming heartbreak

memories left behind

I turn and face your pleading heart

stumbling over the ghost of despair

I had left there


Love’s barren portrait

etched for all time

on our personal wailing wall

a place where lovers reunite

where we said our final “goodbye”

No Limits #poetry

This love has no limits

Heart no measurable boundaries

Offering from the depths of my soul

Nothing held in reserve

Fingers gently caressing my heart

I’d traverse the universe with you

giving everything


You have all of me

Your words are my master

My love is intertwined in you

I can’t pull out of your orbit

This love is galactic

You are my world

Cry From the Deep #magpietale #poetry

Release me from this eternal pain

a woman once

shunned by a man

he incarcerated me in this watery existence

Free me from this cold existence

I breathed the air once

walked the fertile green earth

place me in the ground

Unshackle me

leave my hands

to lie peacefully

by my side
