A Dreadful Day

Poem By A.J. McKinley

Have you ever walked on a sea of sand?
And thought it broken glass?
Have you left your heart in a barren land?
And be haunted by the past?

Have you ever smiled at something blue?
And be drenched by pouring rain?
Have you ever felt love close to you?
And be seared with white-hot pain?

Were you born under a crescent moon?
When you thought it should be full?
Have you ever trusted then broken in two
By the act of a sadistic fool?

Have you ever gazed the stars at night
With mists of tearful thoughts?
Have you ever loved with all of your heart?
Only to find yourself lost?

Dreaming Of The Sea

I am dreaming of the sea.
Of oceans of love to bind you with me.
Silent rocking of your tongue with mine.
Here in your arms, there is no time.

A Dozen Roses

The wilted roses sat regally in the vase.
Their beauty never more apparent than their now decay.
The petals fall listlessly onto the carpet.
She never notices the thorns have no points.

Fire & Ice

I am the creator who cannot find
The soul in which I burn
A witch of fire, frozen in ice
Freedom is a flight I yearn

Lady's Reply To The Rose And Leaf

If I were a rose and you were a leaf,
the thorns would not grow upon my tree.
You would bask in the glory of beauty spent.
Content to reside where my heart went.

Rainbow Tears

Through rainbow tears I see love's true colors
Shining bright amongst them above all others...
Red, Green, Yellow, violet and blue...
All these beautiful colors I now see in you.
