Dreams Twist Away

I saw you today.
Walking the other way
across the street
nearly raised my hand
to call out for you to stop..
Let it fall
for it had been so long
too long
that bridge burned
while I danced in the shoals
maniacal grin
slid into place.
Easier to pretend
know you not
see you not
claim you not
better this way
east
west
sunrise
sunset
neither met.
Tears gathered
clinging to lashes
unwilling
unable
determined to fall.
Far enough you were
I turned to glimpse
once more
the man grown
from the boy I knew
who with sweet kisses
promised me eternity..

Images May Not be as They Appear

My heart
your denial
I do not blame you.
I know who I am.
I know my worth.
I know my life
separate from yours
is mine to live.
I could claim that ravens call
songs of death;
of derth;
of depression;
but those…..
those words
they be lies.
I see you.
I see your desire.
I see your need.
Blinded you are
you cannot tell…..
who is good
who is bad
who might be by your side.
I am no angel
no devil
sent to tempt you.
I am but a woman
scared
alone
strong
alive
standing here.
Leave you did
as foretold by the wisdom of The Crone
washed in the tears of The Mother
forgiven by The Maiden.
