Genial waves of warmth
speak through gentle rays
Awaken my senses
the marigold sings her joy
painted steps are born
Fragrant juniper fill the horizon
gusts of innocence flush my cheeks
first wiffs grab my being
as soft touches trace her core
Welcome into my sunlight
white wishes still endure
supplanted suppliant kisses
you've entered through my door

cute love, devotion, emotions, happiness, song,
Sing me to sleep
Enveloped in your embrace,
Sing me to sleep.
From a hard day at the grind,
Grant me rest,
Cocooned in your warmth.
A rarity in beauty,
You enchanted my soul,
From the very first.
All reasoning supplanted,
I’m to you devoted.
Ravished by your love,
I’m enslaved by your passion.
The tenderness of your flesh,
Have my embers, fanned.
A second from you,
I’d rather not be found,
I am lost in the heaven,
That’s in only you.
Love me tomorrow,
As you have today.
With the hypnotics of your voice,
Each and every day,
Sing me to sleep.

girlfriend-boyfriend, husband, lost love, love, natural disasters, passion, wife,
An unloved woman
Is married to a mean ghost
She sees not nor feels.
And haunting another house,
He is like the wind.
Earth reels with tremblings
As his spirit takes a maid;
It can not bear it.
Now so repugnant,
She wonders in mystery
And is supplanted.
Caused spurn and frequent visits
Of horrific love?

dedication, devotion, lost love, sad, wifelife,
I cannot thank you enough for the suffering you have bestowed upon me,
for I would not undertake your indirect torture as I beg and plea.
For if you did find love, lust and comfort with another,
my faithfulness for you can't be matched by any other.
The mental anguish you've caused me in my darkest hour during war or peace,
there is no comparison on this life that I lease.
My feelings for you are so treasured,
in an amount that cannot be measured.
I choose to hate you for what you've decided,
yet love all that we've learned from each other hearts divided.
Simple factors of life taken for granted,
my existence for now I wish was supplanted.

character, strength, violence,
Peeling back layers of guilt and regret
Like flaking paint off old walls
Looking for that core resistance
That sacred bit that never falls
Taking that mortality and draping it wide
Letting it cover you in renewed pride
I lean, stumble and sometimes fail
Working through tears and lingering pain
But fortitude grows when love is planted
Those seeds in others doubled, supplanted!
I sow words of poetry in hungry minds
Looking to release gender-based violence
Tears turn to pearls as hearts tumble and crack
And a new warrior is born, each time I step back!
