As the water rises
my soul falls in deep desolation,
it rushes over me
passing me by like life has.
Until I saw your eyes
wandering along the sandy shore of life,
hoping you would see me
a miracle happened and you did.
Now I am no longer afraid
of the white water raging free in the world,
as long as your sultry embrace
instills the faith of a thousand suns.
The intense hope I have
worth more than the sum of my parts,
but what lies beyond my
deteriorating spirit upon the earth.
Now no more tears
to fill the torrid river in my heart,
just the sheer happiness
that shall live forever in our love.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
