Weapon

Poem By Velvet Thorn

Your smile kills me
Stabs me like a knife
Darts from you like a laser
Straight into my soul
It hurts and it heals
It's agony and ecstasy.

Smile at me
Please don't smile at me again
Your smile is a black light
Brightens my day and darkens my life.

Go away, I don't want to see it again
Where are you going? Come back!

Good, you're going.
I'll never see you again
It's such a relief
It hurts unbearably.

Don't smile
When you don't smile, I hate you
You're going away
It's a moot point.

October 1992

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.

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?
