We look into each other’s lives and wonder what lies behind those curtains

If others have things so much better than us

Not realizing that as we stare in that they can stare back

Determined to see past our drapes

Observing all the cobwebs and clutter

While wondering why we have it so much better than they do

Bones (an acrostic poem)

Been shaking the pair in my hand and wondering

Obviously the way they land is random

Now that wasn’t an appealing thought

Every ounce of him wanted to believe in luck, that now was his time

So when they came up snake eyes, he knew he had been right

Cliff (an acrostic poem)

 

Conundrum of faith

Looking over the edge and seeing only the unknown

It makes one pause wondering if you should take that next step

Following your heart, believing that you can fly or…

Fearing the fall and fitfully fleeing…

Wait (an acrostic poem)

Watching time crawl slowly past

And wondering why you are not here

It drives me crazy as I count the seconds

To when I can join you in heaven

Almost Fell In Love (an acrostic poem)

At one time Riley thought he really cared for Tabitha

Little kisses snuck in when no one was looking

Making those goofy faces when they sent each other snaps

On the outside everything was perfect

Still, it was doomed to failure from the start

Too bad Tabitha was already married

 

Feelings were hurt when she wouldn’t leave her husband

Even after Riley had professed his feelings

Looking back it was probably all for the better

Leaving her husband would have put doubt in their relationship

 

It would have festered with Riley, wondering would she do it again

Never fully trusting her though he would try so hard

 

Little by little Tabitha and he grew apart

Only Jessica being there for him got him through it

Vixen that she was, she showed him what commitment could deliver

Eventually he grew to appreciate the wife he already had over the one he wanted
