Ferlinghetti–

 “Poetry is eternal graffiti written in the heart of everyone.” – Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Love this quote. It’s breathtaking to think something such as your words to another would leave such an everlasting mark on their heart. I like to think once you read a poem part of it is stuck on your heart forever, and stays within you. Kinda the same.

Graves—

“A perfect poem is impossible. Once it had been written, the world would end.”

Robert Graves

I found this quote today trying to stir up some inspiration to write. This is a beautiful quote about poetry. Graves quote is accurate. If a person wrote a perfect– by the world’s standards–  poem, the world would end. Why? Because everyone in the world would feel every emotion in it.

Carefree, Happy Hearts

Carefree, Happy Hearts.

She closes her eyes
feeling the breeze on her face.
Places both hands on
her door, happily. She smiles
carefree. Like nothing matters.
Maybe it doesn’t.
It’s a sunny day.
The windows are down.
Our family is together–
that is all we need.

My daughter inspired this poem! Turned around and instantly started smiling. Occasionally, I still place my head out of the window feeling the air on my face. I enjoy feeling the breeze through my hair and closing my eyes with the sun warm on my face. She reminded me I need to do it more often. Instead of being caught up with “adulting.”

Wasted Energy

Wasted Energy.

Depression is a
dark cloud over my head, lurking.
Like I created
my own personal
monsoon. If only I had
energy to blast
the rain from capturing my
soul- a rainbow would
appear in the sky.

Don’t Change

change

People cannot change.
We  try controlling
our own destiny.
But when fate comes knocking–
She plays tricks on relationships.
‘Causes collateral damage.
People try morphing
into who they aren’t meant to be
to placate others
for happiness and harmony.
It lasts for a while
until it fades away–
because people do not change.
Do they?

Love is War

Love is War.
LC ©2016

Love is war–
words that sting.
And fights damage,
your heart and soul.
It is like surgery–
gathering torn shreds
of broken shrapnel.
Fixing the mess
lying before you.
As the blood seeps,
through gory fingers.
Refusing to skip
a beat– BOOM-BOOM!
Yes, you will love, again.

A Caged Bird

A Caged Bird.

Do not marry him–
for he will crush your spirit,
and break your soul’s wings.
A colorful bird in a
cage with no song left to sing.
And no wings to soar.
You were made for better things.
Go! They wait for you.
