Even sunny skies burn
like fire upon the shimmering water,
The waves simmer
in the heat of the noon day sun.
As my heart does
thinking abou what used to be.
Why did you go away from me,
into the murky water so deep and dark.
You can't swim with your eyes
closed and soul drowning faster as you sink.
Do you know
I love you more than I love myself.
I'm holding out my hand,
take it and save your last chance,
Open your eyes to see
that our love can truly be free of the world's sham.
Even sunny skies burn,
like love in the shadow of a dying heart.

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".
