Time 

Breathtaking.

A moment in time.

Changes the course.

Your path never the same.

I reflect upon moments past.

I ponder the joys.

The lows.

The journey never ceases.

For that, I am eternal.

Ugh

Ugh.
A Sunday morning.
Ugh.
It's cold.
Ugh.
I need to write.
Ugh.
Words? Where are they?
Ugh.
Frustration, uncaffeinated.
Ugh.
Creativity, struggling.
Ugh.
What is a poet withouth words?
Ugh. 
Simply put. 
Ugh.

Love Forever

Calmly I embraced my excitement.
For I could not wait to see you.
I was thrilled. 
Scared.
In love all at once.
What felt like eons,
Was just a day.
Is this true?
Is the the pure love
We all seek?
Engaging yet distant,
You smiled.
You were overjoyed,
But reserved.
Neither of us quite knew,
Forever was upon us.

Personal History

Words cannot express
the emotion with which I feel.
Tirelessly considering,
the joy of childhood.
The love of parents
so happy for me.
A coffee sits.
Begging to be sipped. 
While I stare at
our old oak tree. 
The yard as square and cut
as dad kept it all those years.
Mom's aged cook book,
a family classic on the shelf.
Stares at me through dusty binding.
Years have passed.
Alone I tend to my history.
The coffee is getting cold.
