The Car Wouldn'T Go

Poem By Raymond J Wright

“The wounded
are much wiser”

.. And I sing along
having learned
recently
exactly
how very true that is

But, somehow
I never learn

I said
“Take me home”
but, the car wouldn’t go
so he ran off
into the night
leaving me all alone

... And there you were
in the back of my head
where
I’ve been keeping you for years
holding my hand
I think it’s time
to let you go

I have to do this
on my own

Sanctuary, Solace (Tactile Explorations)

Kisses, more than sublime
Give me life
Give me light that shines
Now give me all that we are

A Song Of The Season

And the snow falls down
We watch it through the window
Gently draping all in pristine, unbroken white...

For Shawn

Yesterday it was spring,
Today I find winter
Has swept across the land, and tonight
I see your face, lean and hard

He Drove All Night

I awaken to the sound
Of morning music:
Your deep, soothing voice
Singing in the shower

John

My head in my hands,
Your name on my lips

And the icy winter wind

Joys And Sorrows

Time
heals all wounds
or maybe,
It hides our scars
