Sharks Teeth

Poem By Leria Hawkins

Sharks Teeth
Date: February 21,2012

You gathered me in shadows
Spurned me in the light
At noon, your teeth sharpened
At dusk, you're taking sight
Caught between the crosshairs
A victim…aye, the prey
My heart, an easy target
A simple lot to slay

A meal of easy pickings
Like rabbit in a snare
Your rage is fired upon me
A shot to burn the air
A moment then it's over
Your motives met the mark
You feast upon your victory
Circling like a shark

It's A Love-Hate Thing

Love…such a fickle, fickle flame
…a fine line...between here and never again

I love you for many, many reasons

Skin Deep

Who would think a rose so sweet
Would dry and crumble at my feet
And blooms that scent my night and day
Would steal my heart, then fade away

Nothing More

Nothing More

In this love, I’ve loved alone

What More

When will I know your heart, my love
Will there be time for it
I have waited, and you have waited
My soul…has waited

I Know A Secret

Today I heard a whisper
A patient little rhyme
A jingle, just a tingle
Went running down my spine

He comes to life with raging breath
