All alone in the moonlight,

I envision your face again tonight.

Images still make me cry.

Feelings consume me, I try to deny.

Day breaks; I try to be free,

but your memory is haunting me.

Oh, there’s nothing I can do,

I only feel emptiness without you.

The last time you made me depart,

you thrust a knife deep inside my heart.

But the pieces will begin to mend,

when someone has another to lend.

Never will you ever find,

someone to treat you so very kind.

Someone to take care of you,

now that you’ve said we’re through.

I hope the emptiness of your frozen heart,

makes you realize you have to make a start,

to sort your feelings out inside,

and get rid of all that false pride.

Think about what I’ve said,

and all my poems you’ve read.

Love is a two way street,

and it doesn’t start with everyone you meet.

It’s Not You, It’s Me

Relax, take a load off.

We need to talk.


I have wanted to talk to you for a few days now that it is Spring and a time for renewal. I was a bit distracted last weekend when it was 70 and sunny out… Then suddenly 5 inches of snow came out of the heavens on Monday and I couldn’t have needed you more! You have always carried my baggage in style, I won’t forget you.

Nevertheless, it’s time that we expand our horizons, flip our flops, go back in the closet… you get the idea. Believe me, it’s not you, it’s me…


Now I need to go talk to the gloves.
