Your beauty, a #vision
So stunning, so fine

We dream as we walk
Along the shoreline

I treasure each day
To know you are mine

#vsspoem

01/02

Sitting above
Watching you #climb
Ultimate outcome
Wasting your time

Better to spend
Your talents for good
Lift others up
As only you could

#vsspoem

01/03

It is the #season
For ultimate treason
No further reason
Is sought

No better time
Their tactics sublime
Their foe dropped a dime
They’re caught

#vsspoem

01/04

The future is uncertain
No guarantee
If we
Work
Together
The future shines
With you
By
My
Side

#Maybe Baby

#vsspoem

01/05

Resigned
Hopeless
Only way out

The gun
To your head
I did not know
You could be
So #selfish

Telling me this
Means
Hope

#vsspoem

01/06

The carnage Is breathtaking
Walking the fields
Of conflict

Another generation
Laid to #waste

When
Will
We
Learn

#vsspoem

01/07

For tonight
I cede #command
Of my senses
To you

Take me
On a ride
Of passion
And lust

And leave me
Alone
Quivering

But satisfied

#vsspoem

01/08

We have been friends
For a very long while
But I’ve never been sure
Of your interest

Your gentle consent
The warmth of your smile
The #bloom of your cheeks
Bear your witness

Dreams are fulfilled
Lips are conjoined
Hearts are complete
We are fearless

#vsspoem

01/09

We start this life
The center of attention
We grow
In a virtual cocoon
Thinking we
Know
It
All

More growth needed
But not accomplished
If we keep that thought
Instead of
Widening
Our
#Perspective

It is a big world
Join us

#vsspoem

01/10

Always #tomorrow
Never today
Always a reason
Unpleasant delay

There comes a time
When new days are fewer
You find that your life
Has drained to the sewer

You have but one chance…

She approached him
Cautiously
He hid
In the shadows

#Closer

The sound
Of synthesized drums
In the distance

#vsspoem

01/12

What once was full
An #empty shell
Decaying in the waves

The resident
Has now moved on
To find a new enclave

#vsspoem

Ride the limo
Steal the kisses

The things
You #believe
For some
Too naïve

Not up your sleeve
Plain
To conceive

Strive
To achieve
Your final
Reprieve

#vsspoem

01/15

All alone
In your beliefs
Creed
#Conviction
Faith

It will be done
Leaving them
To wonder

How

#vsspoem

01/16

Oh Lord
Grant me
The #serenity
To do no harm

Cat
Scratching
Italian
Couch
Again

The #struggle
Is real
But he comes back
Every Day

My poetry
Sucks

#vsspoem

01/18

Your feelings are #valid
Your tears are sincere
Your sorrow is manifest
Truth to your fears

He lies still before you
Machines at the ready
Forever an #invalid
Your poor forlorn teddy

#vsspoem

01/19

You find it
So easy
To #discard
My feelings
And move on
With your life

It is true
I am just a monster
But I am more
Than you see

You will see

#vsspoem

01/20

Occupy us
With the #spectacular
And the profane

Abandon
Strip
Discard

What remains
Is
The
Most
Profound

#vsspoem

1/21 – 1/25

Missed – medical issues

1/26

#Condemned to be
Sunned and alone
Facing the world
Solo

There is no reason
Except in your mind
Come here
Let’s talk

#vsspoem

01/27

Believing it’s real
I long to feel
The warm, soft #cover
Of a favorite lover
To shelter my bones
From knives that are thrown

By the jealous

#vsspoem

01/28

People arrive
From miles around
The common thread:
#Sorrow

A hero falls
Lives taken too short
There is No reason

But reality

#vsspoem

01/29

I have yearned
For a love
So #genuine
So pure

I never thought
It would happen

But I look
In your eyes
And I know
I am home

#vsspoem

01/30

I struggle
To find a way
To #express
My love for you

A kiss
A slow caress
Says more
Than words

I treasure
These moments

#vsspoem

01/31

I wait all year
To bring you here
The sheen of the water just right

To see your eyes #shimmer
It takes my love’s simmer
Rise to full boil this night
