hEARTS AND fLOWERS – Promote Yourself


It was never hearts and flowers.
We didn’t work that way
Our time was stolen
And half promises
Were made to each other.
I cannot speak for her
But I think we loved
Certainly played a part
I wanted us
To be real
I think it could have been
If she allowed
To let go
Ever so slightly.
Moments of beauty
Were accompanied
By soundtracks of her choosing
Those strings are now
Played for her
Whenever her scent returns from memory

TORMENTORS – Promote Yourself


Go back to sleep my dear

that is what they always say
it was all just a bad dream
or perhaps light casting shadows from the window.

Go back to sleep my dear

do they not see?
do they not hear what I hear?
I just want them to stop

Go back to sleep my dear

dream pleasant dreams
as if I have control?
it is when I am awake at night that I am most afraid anyway

Go back to sleep my dear

everything will be alright in the morning
they do not understand
morning may not arrive for me

Yes, I will go back to sleep

perhaps to join my tormentors in their obvious agony
for an eternity of crying out at night
as if woken from a horrible dream

I will go back to sleep

maybe then they will see and hear
and I will whisper from the grave
go back to sleep my dears……….

Hope you all enjoy. I am truly having fun expressing myself through my darker imagination. Drop by my blog anytime.

JMC here again. While being my second post to poetree creations, this was my first effort at poetry for the public.

and until then, keep writing
