AN AWAKENING TOUCH

AN AWAKENING TOUCH

Our first touch–
with only your fingers
slowly brushing my hand
sent an extraordinary
jolt of electricity,
through my whole body
that I had never felt before.

The twinkle
in your eye
sparked imaginings
that lit up my soul

The smile on your lips
whispered to my heart
making its beating race
as a blush showed
upon my face

An unintended touch
that somehow came to be
as your fingers brushed my hand
and awoke a part of me
I never knew
was waiting there

I shared a touch of the new
and a lingering stare with you
and hoped

for more

A RAINBOW’S PROMISE

By Keza – Spiritedsoul and Charles Robert Lindholm

Resistance Is A Self Taught Way
A Means Of Self-Defense

To Stay True To Oneself
And What One Believes

A Wall, A Shield
Preventing Being
Caught Up In Messes Made By Others

My Mind Is Full Of Dreams,
Visions And Memories

Replaying Them
Over And Over Again
In My Head

What Once Was,
No Longer Exists,
There Is Only Ashes
Left Behind From Miserable Days

But I Resist
Lies And Hopelessness
Knowing Darkness Will End
When The Light Of Truth Shines
And Rainbows Promise
Better Days
And Hope

I DON’T KNOW WHY


MONARCH COCOON - CHANGING
By Bree Leto – Secretthoughtswithin And 
Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

I’m not sure why
I keep on changing
like I do 

I don’t know 
if it’s good or bad
I really wish I knew.

I fear with all these changes
taking place inside of me, 
others will only notice 
the outer side they see. 

I wish I understood 
what was meant to be,
what’s the point in changing 
if you don’t change with me. 
growing together

Take my hand, my love,

we can grow together. 
I will grow 
and you will grow, 
by my side  

FOREVER.

A FUNCTIONAL ILLITERATE

By Charles Robert Lindholm

Trump’s
No Smarter
By Not Reading
Than Those Who Can’t
Read

He’s
Functionally Illiterate
An Uninformed Moron
That Was Elected America’s
President

Willfully
Being Ignorant
Shows Less Intelligence
Than Children Learning To
Read
