Taken For A Ride

Poem By Velvet Thorn

I'm weary of this
Roller coaster game
Engineered by you
Cooperatively constructed

At first exciting
Exhilarating, heart pounding
Now heavy, despairing
Long, slow decrescendo

Through feelings of love
And admiration for your skill
I catch glimpses
Of anger fleeting
A tiger through the trees
Melting away
Leaving me
An empty forest

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?
