Lovelorn Poet in NYC: You Can’t Know Who I Am

You Can't Know Who I Am cover
You can’t know who i am, when your few steps on the moon winded you
in that foreign place, deep in space you wondered where i was
but i was always there

watching you from a distance because you’re dangerous
not only to me, but to your own kind
just look at what you’ve
done

and yes, it’s not all black and white
it’s always been about the in
between shades

and subtle shimmers
placed just so

so the rest of them
know

that there’s
hope

Lovelorn Poet in NYC: Once Upon A Time

Cups and Spoons by Hernan Seoane

Cups and Spoons by Hernan Seoane

wform response by mforw
It was a dark night
Not
Unlike
Any
Other
Dark
Night
Except this one
was
filled
with
deep
sleep
as the images rolled by
on the movie screen of the mind
and
THOSE IMAGES WHICH HAUNTED ONE’S SLEEP
had a
magic
quality
to them.
Not filled with Color
or Black and White
FANTASIES
but the deepest
communication
that any two distant
SOULS
could
ever wish for.
A LINK
that though distant in body
connected in dreams
of what should be simple
BUT OF COURSE
is never easy.
The pain of betrayal and deceit
interrupting each image like
COMMERCIALS OF THE MIND.
Alas, there was hope
FOR THESE LINKED DREAMS
was a gift that few could claim
but these two distant in location souls
KNEW would hold them bound together
and that soon
the
joy
of sharing
same
space
and
time
was
fast
approaching
their
forever
future
so
that indeed
they
would
REJOICE IN THEIR EMBRACE

Lovelorn Poet in NYC: Skimming Across The Pages Of A Travel Magazine

Qunitessentials by Scott Maxworthy

Qunitessentials by Scott Maxworthy

my sniper perch….on a certain rooftop
guarding my V word with admirable courage
Until Cupid came along…set up shop alongside me
love lost lust found Mind lust
and the ice is melting
Because there’s never enough…
so another five hour energy and dopamine is happy
oh you….
Under my skin…
I zip line to Morgan’s home
where you beat me to it
and filled a memory bank and countless poems
In one hours time and I haven’t stopped smiling
Shut up you say
and for once I agree
Plotting the next non hookup
where there will be no ice
and no mirror….
In the interim we waterski skimming
The pages of travel magazines
holding on for dear life…
where you sunbathe on a Florida beach
and me?
I tie Madonna to a Rocky Mountain tree
laughing as I skip along to our little cabin
Where the blankets are never big enough…
and I can never get enough
of you
