In The Silence

In The Silence

In the silence she missed him
In the silence she cried
In the silence she dreamed of once
In the silence she tried
In the silence she remembered
In the silence she smiled
In the silence she called to him
In the silence stared wild
In the silence she kicked the covers
In the silence she screamed
In the silence she wept allowed as
His memory could never be undreamed

Underestimated

Underestimated (1)

She underestimated her body.
When he asked her out.
She underestimated her eyes.
When he brought her flowers.
She underestimated her smile.
When she caught him looking.
She underestimated her tears.
When they disagreed.
She underestimated that dress.
When he couldn’t not look.
She underestimated her feelings.
When they first kissed.
She underestimated her heart.
When he said “I love you”.
She underestimated every single thing.
That he found amazing in her.

She Walked Away

She Walked Away

She rose above
Time and again
Barely catching her breath
Lost in his sin
Though lust kept control
Feelings within
She never forgave him
Truth cursed her whim
He had a wife
No jewelry or care
She had to let go
Heart needed to slow
So hurting the lies
Resistant to her tries
She willed her heart
Understood her part
Forced mind
Pulled the lever
She silently walked
Away forever

Without Knowing Your Name

Without Knowing Your Name

I’ve written about you
Without knowing your name
    thought on your beauty
Without knowing your name
    wrestled in arguments
Without knowing your name
    dreamed unending
Without knowing your name
    adored your responses
Without knowing your name
    loved how you think
Without knowing your name
    kissed your lips
Without knowing your name
I may have just met you
Without knowing your name
Without speaking I know you
Without knowing your name
I’ve always loved you
Without knowing your name
