Flowery Mead

A warmth as intense as flowery mead Entwined with a memory and castaway Like a pilfered thought from a dream Recalling a place, a holiday How did I forget with so little heed

“The happiest people I know are people who don’t even think about being happy. They just think about being good neighbors, good people. And then happiness sort of sneaks in the back window while they are busy doing good.”

Forgotten Remnants

A Garret Poet

Forgotten Remnants

Distant memories scattered inside my mind,
the litter from past laughter and pain
forgotten remnants of time that remain
as barriers that my heart lingers behind.
A heart that loved and lost, battered, and scarred,
the stains no soap and water can remove
ingrained by years to leave another groove,
agony's welt where loving senses charred.
Dark empty places yet love lights a flame,
a dream whispered by a sweet tender voice,
once more the heart and mind must make a choice,
the old battle that always ends the same
For it is only when I let myself feel
the joy of love, my pain begins to heal

Androgyny Confounds

A Garret Poet

Androgyny Confounds
Form: Loose Sapphic

What is to say of my androgynous state,
the son that never was born in blissful joy
or the maiden daughter unblessed by beauty
just where should I be?

I see balance with nature's most sacred act
that gave me life so I may learn who I am,
from their love, the act of he and she, the rose
with a boyish smile.

Yet if she should hold me close and kiss the smile
my Sapphic heart would be dared to quench her thirst
as molten femininity embraces
the girl that I am.

Labels of identity fail to touch the truth
or justify the woman that breathes in me
mere titles cannot express lores of passion
as I understand
