SHAME ON YOU

By Keza/Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm/The Reluctant Poet

Your Words
Hurt Me,
Each One
A Pointed Dart

Aimed And Thrown
At My Heart
And Soul

Burning Words,
Like Hot Wax
Spit Upon My Skin

Your Actions
Showed Me Feelings
That Confused
My Tender Heart

Your Memories
Haunt Me
With Shadows
They Still Cast

Ever Present Ghosts
Whispering From The Past

Your Heart
Deceived Me
With Your Professed
Love

Like A Bee
You Fed
On Nectar
From My Flower

Promising
I Was Your
Only Lover

I Learned
That Was A Lie
When You Left Me
For Another

With No Good-Bye

I Still Hear Those
Ever Present Ghosts
Whispering From The Past

I WILL CARRY THE SCARS

By Keza/Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

How Can I Hold Him,
A Long Lost Lover,
Still Under My Skin,
A Devil At  Heart,

Returned To Haunt
And Seduce Me
With Passions
And Desire

Relighting
Old Embers
Into A Fire,
Now Raging
In My Soul

How Can I Hold Him,
While I Still Love You,
He,  
Is Nothing Like You

You’re So Loving And Kind
And Done Nothing Wrong
It Would Be Heartless And Cruel
For Me
To Let You Go,
And To Choose
Another

It Would Be So Difficult
To Tell You About Him
And What I’ve Done
When I Want To Let
Him Go

I Know I Will Carry
The Scars Of His Fire
In My Soul Forever

But,
I Will Suffer
With The Regret
And Pain
In Silence

No Words
Will Ever Be
Spoken

WHEN TIME HAS MENDED MY HUMPTY DUMPTY HEART

By Keza/Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm

Why Does A Heart
That Loves
So Deeply,
Have To Suffer,
Have To Get Broken,
Once Again

Over And Over
Time After Time
Falling For Lovers
That Will Never
Stay Mine

It Can’t Keep Going
On This Way, When Can I Have One
That Won’t Walk Away

I Give My Heart
But When Will I I Learn,
That I Need To Have One,
In Return,
From One That Will
Love Me Forever

Too Many Memories
Still Stay In My Mind
Long Lost Lovers
From  A Far Away Time

Haunting My Dreams
And Whispering Lies
Bringing Back Heartaches
And Tears To My Eyes

How Long Must I Wait
For Time To Heal
The Scars And The Hurts
I’m Forced To Feel

No One Is Flawless
Least Of All Me,
But True Love
Accepts Us
And Let’s Us Be,
Loved
In Spite Of It All

And So I Hope,
My Lips Will Soon Kiss
My Forever Lover,
Once Time Has Mended
My Humpty Dumpty Heart

NO LONGER A FOOL

By Keza/Spiritedsoul And Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

How Did I
Not Know
You Possessed
The Coldest Heart?

Your Sweet Words
Deceived Me
With Promises,
Tempting Me
To Believe

Your Fiery Passion,
Your Hungry Hands,
And Wild Desires,
And Lies About Love,
Hid The Truth

No Words Of Love
Or Warm Embrace
Will Erase
What I Have Learned,

I Am, No Longer A Fool

Now
Your Words
Are Barbed Wire Kisses
That Cut Me
To The Quick
And Leave
Me In Tears,

My Punishment
For Trusting You

I Seek Refuge
In The Darkest Corner
Of My Soul,
The Safest Place To Sit,
Far Away From You

Where I Can Wonder,
And Plan My Escape,
Into A Life
That Once Again
Is Mine

Covid-19 Victims By The Thousands Have Died With No Words Of Sympathy Or Empathy From President Donald J. Trump.  No Message Of Comfort To America Or Acknowledgement That Faster And Decisive Action By Him Would Have Saved Tens Of Thousands Of Lives.

Families, Friends And Communities Across America Pay The Cruelest Price
For The Failure And Pride Of The Incompetent President that is Donald J. Trump!
