That Whiskey bottle
Would drown me If I let it That Cigarette Would smoke me If I let it Your Love Would destroy me If I let it But I won't let it I mean too much to me To let that happen anymore
delicately lay me down in dreams
of wild flowers blooming in the sky like they once did in your heart paint me into scenes of monet waters kissed by water lily wishes like you once left upon my lips lightly brush a soft breeze through tendrils of my hair where your fingers once danced here I long to drift in peace wafting on pastel swirls and aerial sighs like I once floated upon your breath leave me now to delicately fade into a scene of pure love like we once had ...

How to poet a life away
Toss the trite learned Skip grammar mostly too Rhyme or not is all yours Step to drummer unheard Believe in life yet untold Read a thousand times More than you write Live, so you will know What you are talking about Take wild leaps in mind Without losing it too far Write not only about love Although that’s all there Really is or really is not Fall in some love also More than simply once With not only your words But others in thought Wishing to poet too © 2017 Jim Davis
My golden queen I've wasted years Suffered for you Pleaded for you Died inside Denied my pride Now at last I've finally found The pain most intense With you around The only one I adore Has shattered and broken me To the core.

Dad, I am going to try and write this
It may be a poem It may not But from my heart I miss you I remember the last time I kissed you Your eyes were closed They opened wide As I kissed your forehead In that terrible place So white and clean Where people die But you will never die Dad I love you so much And you will always live on In my heart Forever God, I miss you so much It's so hard to write through the tears
