Expectations (Publication)

Secret Thoughts Within

Oh hey you, my poem Expectations was recently published in the It’s Not Easy anthology by Poet’s Choice. I have included the poem for your reading pleasure…

Expectations

You come at me with your expectations
Of you who think I should be
And what you think I should do
But I’m not you.

I’m done with performing
I’ve reached the very end this time,
Your control has kept me caged
And now all I feel is enraged.

I don’t live my life to please you
Your acceptance doesn’t give me value,
Even if you withhold it
I’ll continue and won’t quit.

Watch me live my own life
As I shake off your unrealistic demands,
The life you lead is not for me
I live my own life and I am free.

For Peter… You’ve got this!

Longing, belonging and secret love..

johncoyote

Longing, belonging and our secrets…

Lover, lover, lover. Once we loved the long nights, once the wine tasted sweeter. Now our longing, belonging and our secrets, are bloody finger prints on a over-painted wall.

I told you once, you were my life, my will, to live for. Now we make love like strangers, our kisses less warm, our laughter deleted. Now our longing dispersed in the storm of living, the belonging of love, bled-out and never to be awaken.

Our secrets words spoken in the midnight hours, became just myth and tale in the hidden words in my poetry.
We kissed goodbye on a rainy Spring day and I took my books with me.

I left you my smiles, my laughter, my heart. Now old poet sing to the Spring moon,

“Where does love go?

why do we destroy the sweetest day,

the kindest nights?

Our we destine to know,

Vision: A World of Peace

Didi's Art Design



A world without weapons
Nonviolent thoughts
Brotherhood everywhere

A world without fear
Free life for all people
Without corruption

A world of sharing and caring
Without better and worse
Without comparison and condemnation

A world of respect
With dignity and honour
Without discrimination

A world of hearts
Among brothers and sisters
Without shadows

A world of togetherness
Living in the Garden of Eden
Without ego and selfishness

A world of unity
Of compassion and togetherness
Of One humanity

Take your time

Ckonfab

Next time your heart beams for someone, 
and you grin unceremoniously all the time,
take your time
before you express your love,
for it could be a mere attraction after all

Love It Is

Ckonfab

Step by step
brick by brick
thought by thought
we will build our world
holding warmth in eyes
and dreams on our mind
let us soar
to a world
where you and I will become us
and love shall forever
remain pure and divine

A Year Ago – #poetry of the #brokenhearted

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


This is how
The year has been
Cluttered spaces,
Filled with din

Unconnected,
Lines that fly
Out of my head,
Although I try

To make sense
Of what will be
To understand
This broken me

Who misses you
With every day
It’s been a year ago,
Today

How can that be,
It went so fast
Day after day,
The moments pass

I feel I’m sinking,
In quicksand
And you’re not here
To grab my hand

And pull me up,
Breathe in new life
Instead, I’m only
Filled with strife

Beaten down,
Depression rages
Part of death,
of grief,
in stages…

Rest in Peace, Mommy.  I miss you so very much… 06/10/2020
