Seduction Pantoum
"Memory's Seduction

You’ve been gone now for quite a while.
It seems like I should be getting used to it
but there are still those days when I remember
and missing you is as fresh as yesterday.

It seems like I should be getting used to it
but a thousand memories keep intruding
and missing you is as fresh as yesterday.
I have a new life now, filled with work and love and laughter

but a thousand memories keep intruding ~
memories of your songs, your touch, and all the things we did together.
I have a new life now, filled with work and love and laughter
but hidden from view is a wide and lonely place where often I am drawn to go.

Memories of your songs, your touch, and all the things we did together
comfort me and make me smile.
But hidden from view is a wide and lonely place where often I am drawn to go
and drink again from the deep well of tears that never goes dry.

Comfort me, and make me smile.
You’ve been gone now for quite a while
and yet, I drink again from the deep well of tears that never goes dry.
There are still those days when I remember ~



Death Personified - Free Verse
"Gone

I would never have guessed it was you
so tall and handsome you were
with your impeccable manners and boyish smile
we trusted you with her
our beautiful, gifted, precious girl
and you took her hand
and lured her away
into the cold, dank blackness of your world
and when at last she called to us
I’m here! please save me!
you muffled her cries
and we could only hear their echo
it was too late
you had had your way with her

she was gone
