Raindrops

Raindrops hit the metal patio cover
first slow, then  so fast
it sounds as if marbles are being dumped
from a jar.
Slows and then nothing at all.

Another wave gains strength as the storm
moves forward again.

Just as my emotions start with a tear
running down my cheek, then a rush
like a river while my heartbeats as the thunder.

A moments pause it seems to be, until the
wave of heartache rolls through again.

Looking in the Mirror

maxresdefault 2

Looking in the mirror
I see a stranger staring
back at me.

The person looks like someone I
thought I once knew.

A ghost of the past or future.
An ending that only the powers
to be know for sure.

They are judge, jury and executioner.

His Words

His words set her on fire like never before.

Better have a fire extinguisher, no damn it
you better have several fire trucks-  available
when they finally meet.

Face to Face

Body to Body

Flame to Flame

I’m having trouble

I’m having trouble wrapping my arms
around anything/everything right now-

I have all these paths laying out
in front of me, looking inviting,
with lots of possibilities.

But I seem to be spinning my wheels
and burning rubber and not getting anywhere.
I’m getting more restless and frustrated
the more I look at them.

I’m not getting the answers
I need to find my way.
I have lost my map!

What do you do?

What do you see when you look in the mirror
Is it everything you want it to be
I’m told my face and skin could grace
the cover of  magazines, women would envy
and men would find intriguing.

There is an innocence about me, thou
I can be a siren in my next breath.

My friend made my jewelry and body
accessorizes, they give off such a real effect.

What do you see when you look in the mirror
I see a woman comfortable in her skin
ready to take what’s next since
she just kicked some major ass.

The picture is the cover of a magazine
called Different- Deal with it!

This is who I am when I look in the mirror,
all of it is real, no fake, touched up,
or glued on pieces.

Are you what you see in the mirror?

Luis Royo is a master at what he does,
you will see several of his pictures in my work.

 

Climbing

Climbing  to the next step,
the stairs  uneven, and dirty.

But the higher I go the more
strength, determination and success
fills my soul.

What it means is to never give up
and lose faith.

It means so much much more at this
time in my life.
