OPEN DOORS

The door stands open Just a slivered crack Just perfectly enough To see the universe Swimming lazily by As if on a movie screen Just perfectly enough To feel its icy cold sigh Creep sneakily through On tipsy drunken toes Just perfectly enough To see smiling moons Flirting with the stars And taking it too…

TO BE YOURS

I want to be the fierce and fiery dragon That chases away your enemies To be the sun that shines and guides you When you need to find your way I want to be the orange and yellow sunset When you need to find a bit of peace To be the moon that shines ever…

IMAGINARY ROMANCE

I slept alone but I felt you The vivid image of you Smiling across my eyelids The beauty of your eyes The only thing haunting me   Dreaming of our time together Holding tight to make believe My imagination is all there is Of a romance I created Fiction at its best, a novel erotic…

SMALL SKELETONS

  We sat silent And content With eyes Still full of sleep Waiting for the bus The sky was still dark Like it usually is Because school Starts way too early And we listened As the wind Kicked up the leaves Newly crisp and dead From Fall’s bully breath They sounded Like skeletons Dancing On concrete Sidewalks And…

#BeReal – DORI OWEN

When two people create beautiful things together… Magic happens… Until reality cuts in and says, “May I have this dance?” BEAUTY IN THE BEAST WE ALL SHINE ON…

I could feel myself Getting tangled up Mind wandering Exploring aimless The possibilities Of a new life Escaping reality To look for you I avert my eyes From the truth Relying instead On an imagined World rotating Endlessly Inside my head  ~Hastywords 01/20/14

MISAPPROPRIATED IMAGINATION II

When my husband leaves for work my daughter usually jumps in bed with me until we both wake up to begin our day.  She is 10 and I never once considered telling her she is old enough to stay in her own bed because for 1 hour before each day starts I am allowed to…
