Poem By Mary Lyle

When shall my weary heart prevail from this ceaseless pain?
Aching, my burning heart's love lost indefinitely.
So long ago, soulmates in unity.
Such fiery love like the passion of night.
Has my butterfly flown away for an eternity?
Open arms embrace your welcome;
As parched ground yearns for rain.
Regrettably, gnarled hearts transpire.
Happiness slipped through fingers like sands of time;
Descending into tiny crevices.
Two hearts shall timelessly beat intertwined through time.
Woven together like vines;
Yellow rose, black rose, and heart - an infinite trademark worn only by you.
Our undying destiny only to one another; Denial none.
The path home again; Sorrowful parting, perhaps painful companions?
Behold new loves, the grass greener for a moment in time.
Brick walls now encompass me.
My hands washed clean only to soil those of a Higher power.
Fate; destiny of two relinquished in time.
The crystal ball of my soul's depth, once clouded with dense smoke,
Has grown clear, revealing butterflies and princesses fluttering magically,
Soaring happily forever more.

From The Blue

From the blue you appeared unforeseen,
And to the blue you have elated me in flight.
From the blue, an angel I envision you,
And how the blue casts your radiance for others to see!


My Dandelion; From what sun-kissed breeze did you arrive?
Sweeping through my hair and across my lips,
Ever so gently fondling my heart.
Your softness eludes me like the darkness of a midnight sky.


Oh, my light in the dark, from which star did you fall?
How could you force the rain to fall heavily upon my soul?
A puddle drowning my aura, my being.

Alone With You

Alone with you

Alone with you is where I long to be
Alone with her is where you are free

My Heart

My Heart, you've Captured
This Body, you've Intoxicated
My Soul, you've Pierced
This Mind, you've Unfolded
