The pleasures of revenge

Imagine sharing the secrets to a lover’s heart. Confiding the opportunity to a lifelong dream. A dream money cannot buy. Trust, carelessly assumed, And a best friend’s betrayal! Something broods when deepest secrets are divulged Something festers when one’s dream is hijacked Revenge! Retribution How it bites and nibbles at conscience A vigilante seeking justice…

True Love’s Sonnet #poetry

Before we can truly love ourselves, must we hold off on loving the one we want the most? Lost Searching Captain Land-ho beckons, A new home.

Dark sinister night Bullfrogs croak and crickets chirp Prequels to silence Your heartbeat flutters I can feel it in the dark My subconscious is attuned to its rhythm All those nights we’ve…

The Perfect love

Love is warm. It thaws the ice in our hearts, And cradles our lonely souls. Make a love wish! What kind would it be? Once, a girl loved a boy. Once, she bared her soul to him. Once, he filled that missing piece. How that love consumed! Burning everything around Friends could not get close…

Burdens of an angel
