I’m A Reluctant Sailor At Best

manipulation-1875815.jpg

I’m a reluctant sailor at best
Life on the seas – a mere charade
A pirate’s life hasn’t panned out
Reflecting poor choices once made
But now I must focus on the task
Secrets of love hidden within the tome
Writing out the heart’s silent pain
It’s all I can do until I arrive home

The Poetess Vixen

The poetess vixen
Trying to seduce my intellect
Whispering those sweet thoughts
Paused my pen; time to reflect
But I’m not one to cave to pressure
Her pretty eyes leading me to temptation
I can appreciate & smile back
Without any need for erotic retaliation

Where’s Your Smile

Where’s your smile
Where’s your happy thoughts
A positive outlook is needed
A return to Neverland is sought
A slight glimmer from the stars
Reflecting back to us; our own hope
Embrace all the love we can find
For it’s the only way to cope

The Pressures Of A Creative World

The pressures of a creative world
The mind’s eye reflecting society
Sculpting words to fit this day
My life better when wrapped in piety
But you must choose your own path
No one can tell you what you need to do
Your experiences are solely your own
In the end, your happiness is simply up to you
