Anticipation Haiku

Open and exposed
In the moment stillness flows
Anticipation

Moments of Reflection

Fragments of Hope

Sorrow strengthens with ever step
On this path of broken promises
Forgotten dreams shatter reality
As silent words lead me onward

Misplaced thoughts searching
Words forever ending in pain
Lost in moments of reflection
Memories will never be erased

Melodies linger, sleep overtakes
Holding onto fragments of hope
Dreams unfold into a twilight sea
Light fades with passing thoughts

Wrapped in time’s embrace
A silent sadness descends 
Waiting for understanding
…and forgiveness

Room of Secrets

Lost in her room of secrets
Knowing her weakness
Passions lurking in shadows
Searching for release

A reputation to maintain
Prim and proper
Debauched desires brewing
Needing to be tamed

Reaching out in the dark of night
Lust in sight
Waiting for a time to let go
For love to flow

Turning away from possibilities
As desires weep
Wondering if it’s hers to give
Or be taken away

Repressed by rejection and fear
And unsatisfied tears
Full of sadness as love fades
Lost in her room of secrets
