Love Follows Hope

Hope ignites passion's flame with a promise fanning the smoldering embers of love fanning the smoldering embers of love with a promise passion's flame ignites Hope love leads to happiness without question they are the pinnacle of emotions they are the pinnacle of emotions without question happiness leads to love (Tetractys) 09,28,2019

I Was Wrong

Was I
To push love
So un-returned
At first though the love from you came later
I lost mine, rapt in imagination
So time forgot
Our passion

Simultaneous Thoughts of Soul Mates Soon to Meet

"She" Like one of these tears that freed itself from my misted eyes, you've slipped away from me. Oh, that once again you'd caress my face like this tear which warmly slides down my cheek. "He" I watch you, sad lady, from my table and see myself that tear that trails your skin. While you think of someone else, I'm dying to be that tear that lingers on your mouth.

slow slide of 
her guitar blues
knife ‘gainst fretted strings of pain and pleasure

with hours to kill on train of love in vain
fields of fireflies

*Love In Vain (originally “Love In Vain Blues”) is a blues song written by American musician Robert Johnson and recorded in 1937. Later, it was re-recorded by the Rolling Stones (1969) which is when I first heard it and fell in love with this blues masterpiece*

Cat Love

He was grey and hungry and so afraid. Oh, little cat let me into your heart! Oh, little cat let me into your heart! I left him food on the porch water too. Then one day I touched him we both stayed still. Oh, little cat let me into your heart! _____________________ August 20, 2017 Tetractys/Cat Love Copyright Protected, ID 932236 Written for the contest, Let Me Into Your Heart sponsor, Julie Rodeheave Third Place

for you believe

Where hath thy,
Gone? In deeper,
Sorrows where slings, arrows, and swords are drawn…

For I will love thy ways forever still,
In foolish dreams…

Silent Thoughts Attract

A deluge of love draws out a wry smile As she walks by In a world Of her Own, Yet Takes in The moment Of his embrace Without contact just a wink from his eye Cheeky bugger she thinks but oh so nice Turning her head As she stops To say Hi, He’s Gob smacked Her perfume Drifts on the wind They move in and touch director says cut.

Hearts mend 
For evermore 
Matching beats, living, dying...together
So precious is life, with love existing

Then She Woke Up

A young blond beauty reading an old tale fell asleep, dreamt of being trapped in a tall tower, to find love when some dude climbed her HAIR! Awake, she muttered, “Stupid dream!”

''on broken wings''

my soul
weeping heart
I have been hurt
oh how deep the dagger plunges and twists
I am staggered by the hate and the love
within I bleed
oh sadness
this girl
and I write
I pen the pain
sad verses fly away on broken wings  . . .

Triple Tetractys

Categories: childhood, friendship, health, life, sympathy, uplifting, child,



No one knows what to do
But to stare and be rude
When a child of four is old

They just stand there and stare
Without any care
And the child suffers the stranger’s cold

And Life may not seem fair
When a girl has no hair
Like I said, she’s only four

But she takes it in stride
And has nothing to hide
It is the stranger that is poor

So no matter the eyes
That continually spy
Into her daily play

She is the purest gold
For me to hold
And I’ll love her everyday!
