Poetry Tuesday – Never Happened

Expectations,

But not exceptions,

This is how I ought to be.

Maybe in your eyes,

To some other person,

Maybe a great goddess,

Maybe a prissy princess,

Perhaps even a porcelain doll,

Flawless, untouchable,

Beautiful, pristine,

Never stepping in the mud,

Falling, twisting my ankle,

Breaking my face in two.

But see, I already have fallen

And cursed my weak ankles.

My face is scarred,

And my eyes see clearly

I’m in the mud.

You don’t really see me.

You don’t know who I am.

Maybe I was never even there to you.

I’ll stand, walk away from this incident,

Which incidentally, never happened in your eyes.

Excerpt from Hannah’s Rainbow

“Do you think dogs go to heaven?” the girl asked, her voice nearly a whisper in the wind.
Hannah smiled sadly. “I’m sure they do.” She put an arm around Irma and drew her close. “Heaven is all things good. Dogs are among the best things in life, so how could it be heaven without our most loyal friends there?”
Irma smiled up at her sister. “Good.”

Cherished

I have not,

In all m years

Upon this tainted earth,

Looked upon anyone

More beautiful than you.

You are worth every breath

I take of this cleansing air.

I had no found myself

Until I saw my reflection

In your deep eyes.

A fire burns so hidden, intense,

And I long for its unspoken passion

Only found when two hearts are one.

We make love

Upon a sea of silk sheets.

Darling, I utter but one word:

Cherished.
