Greed

Poem By jeannetta harris

Thoughts- questions
Feelings of desire
Churning- swirling
Drowning in a whirlpool of doubt
Reaching out to the light of hope
Having had you- wanting more
Dreaming of what could have been
Sabotaged by my own hands
Trying to move on
Finding our way back
Allowing a taste
Hunger taking over
The sweet nectar from your lips
Intoxicates- clouding my judgment
Doing the unthinkable
Regret sinking in
Knowing I have lost
Not only one but two loves
One who holds my heart
The other who holds my soul
My greed leading me in my transgression
My undoing… my weakness
Alone with only the company of
GREED

A Mothers Pain

I see him struggle-trying to get the words out
The pain the frustration unable to convey his thoughts
The angry outbursts-the depression -the anxiety
Ridiculed shunned always the outcast-the scapegoat

Humbug

Sitting staring out my window
All the happy faces
The smiles the greetings
The lights and decorations

Feelings Of The Heart

What is love…
Is it the fluttering in your stomach
The knot in your throat
The tightness in your chest

Deafening Scream Of Love

Your silence is starting to make me wonder.
You no longer leave those cute little messages
I no longer receive the forbidden calls
You no longer break the rules just to hear my voice

Loves Silent Departure

Mirrored droplets cascade down my face
Each one reflecting the pain I hold within
Staring into the tear made puddle
Memories of you swimming within

Searching

Searching the sky
For a star to wish upon
Making my wish
I sleep and dream
