Inside And Out

Poem By Velvet Thorn

I remember well
When we first met
In our past lives

You inside a shell
protected from good and bad
by a thick wall

Me inside out
emotions on the surface
like an open wound.

I never saw your tears
though I knew they were there.
You pretended not to see mine
and we moved on.

But now,
In our ethereal words
There is no inside,
There is no outside
There's only you and me.

Oh, No!

Where's my pen,
I need a pen,
I can't believe its lost again!

A Demanding Woman

A challenge was offered
A task of love
An exposure of self.
You accepted.


Your smile kills me
Stabs me like a knife
Darts from you like a laser
Straight into my soul

Black-Eyed Susan

Call me Rudbeckia
(Becky for short)
A black-eyed susan at night
Petals luminous

To See Or Not To See

I see a young boy
eyes closed
fingertips searching
Pretending he knows not what he does.

Late Summer Sonnet

Where did the Columbines and Lupines go
The Alliums that stood so straight and neat
The raspberries with all their bright red glow
That children did consider such a treat?
