I Didn’t Mean To Get Too Personal

I didn’t mean to get too personal
I merely noticed your exposed slip
My thoughts took me to uncharted waters
Thinking of us – alone- a subtle skinny dip
An abandoned wedding gown crumpled
The satin too white against your lace
I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel
Though I could see the muted joy in your face
You kicked off your heels & removed your gloves
Walking too close you whispered ‘yes’ to my surprise
I loosened my tie before you took charge
I’ll never forget how you looked with your laughing eyes

Dreams Of Pretty Dancing Girls

Dreams of pretty dancing girls
Tartan skirts & gold buckles on their shoes
Legs draped in such fine stockings
High kicks, but treasure out of view
The fantasy of a joyous party
Spirited music playing a bit loud
Fiddles & bagpipes; what a scene
You pulled me out of the dense crowd
Beauty of drinking black beer all day
My stature begins to slightly tilt
You quietly asked me for a light
But there’s no pockets in this kilt
Envisioning what the night might bring
Is it possible that you could be this real
Sharing a pint in a secluded corner
A second Guinness is considered a meal

Preparing For The World

Preparing for the world
Packing all the essential gear
Not to be outdone by hate
We laugh & toast in the face of fear
This life is our only Earthly chance
I choose to live with joy & elation
The smiles & righteous conduct will outlast
Our bodies in the hearts of our relations

Another Tattoo Won’t Fix Me

Another tattoo won’t fix me
Character flaws will remain intact
Anxiety, depression & the mortgage
Will continue to be undeniable facts
I’ll still be this version of me
But I’ll feel life under my skin
A slow, steady build-up to joy
Creeping up to take charge again

The Sunsets Seem To Last Longer

The sunsets seem to last longer

Before the darkness comes closing in

Walking alone, the beach seems haunted

Memories from before we allowed life to begin

I love the brilliant colors of Spring

Enjoying life in the sunshine I revere

Slowly the light fades, taking my joy

Night brings heavy thought & steps along the pier
