Sweet Desire

Poem By Charles Lara

Sweet desire has
been taken away
and put back
on a shelf
it will be saved
for another lifetime
or another lover
no soft kisses
are left out
for the dreamer
or tight hugs
for the other
infatuation is jammed
inside a bottle and
thrown into an ocean
where it will sink
down to the bottom
until it is swallowed
and never released
between the mermaid
and her sailor

Comments about Sweet Desire

Between Drops

A twisted streak
of multi-colored
pirouettes across


Sleep sleep sleep
deep magnificent sleep
cradles me like
a mother holding

Red Jazz

Red reflections
from songs
by Billie
before the empty stairs.

Who's Counting...

Children never forget
to play games
unless they are
already dead.

Before It's Over

Clean and well fed
pushing white revolving doors
until time is up
and there is no longer


Suicide notes
and dancing butterflies
have candles
conquer old dusk
