If I Could Fly With You

Poem By David Zvekic

If I could fly away with you I would:
  We'd breach the sky beyond where currents flow,
  Above the highest nimbus ever stood,
  I'd fly you where all tear drops turn to snow.
  Bright stars, like fairies' dust, would trace our faces,
  Through nebulae we'd sparkle in love's sight,
  A pilgrimage for two to desp'rate places,
  Like birds we'd soar as though to touch was flight.
  O'er pearly shores we'd come to rest a while;
  And catch our breath before resuming home.
  I'd bear aloft your heart and meet your smile,
  But wingless I am grounded here, alone.
    If I could only fly with you I might,
    But cannot so I'd better learn to write.

Ode To Words I Didn'T Write

I drifted off throughout that night,
My breath held deep in thrall to art
With words I felt but didn't write -
They fled my pen; I couldn't start.

The Lazy Poor Poet [limerick]

There once was a lazy poor poet,
But indignant she didn't quiet know it.
Just one bad review,
And her blood turned all blue,

All Things Lost

Of all words ever said before,
Of all the knowledge known,
Of all the theories held before,
And all that I've been shown;

As Wings On Wind

I dared to know a forbidden mind,
Innocence imprisoned in darkness,
One soul trapped beneath fear, in irons,
A kindred spirit bent beyond reason,

Leave me where the snows will fall;
I'll lay myself a bed beneath
the stars; I'll listen to the wind
and sing my sorrows to the seas.

Love's Logic [couplet Sonnet]

The more ways I find to express my love,
The more I love you, and the better for love,
And more: What more than seek such ways to it;
Expressing love (and therefore to do it) .
