NOT MEANT TO BE

by thereluctantpoet

By Bree Leto – Secret Thoughts Within and Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

DIVORCE

There are many things you can’t control

Your heart

Another’s heart

no matter how much you might want to
HOPES AND WISHES

It is a fact of life that

hopes and wishes

dreams and prayers

don’t always happen or come to pass

DEAD END
We may have relationships and love

that we have always dreamed of

but sometimes

happenstance

fate or luck

intervene and force a change

to our plans and choices

ONLY FOR AWHILE

Not all relationships

are meant to be forever

sometimes they are only meant

to be for awhile

There may be many things you can’t control

but there are some things you can
DREAMS

Maybe it’s time to dream a new dream

It might be time to

move on

forgive and forget

let go

YOUR OWN PATHWAY

and follow your own pathway

TO A BETTER LIFE

into a new and better life

AN AWAKENING TOUCH

by thereluctantpoet

By Bree Leto – Secretthoughtswithin and
Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet
AN AWAKENING TOUCH

Our first touch–
with only your fingers
slowly brushing my hand
sent an extraordinary
jolt of electricity,
through my whole body
that I had never felt before.

The twinkle
in your eye
sparked imaginings
that lit up my soul

The smile on your lips
whispered to my heart
making its beating race
as a blush showed
upon my face

An unintended touch
that somehow came to be
as your fingers brushed my hand
and awoke a part of me
I never knew
was waiting there

I shared a touch of the new
and a lingering stare with you
and hoped

for more

A RAINBOW’S PROMISE

by thereluctantpoet

By Keza – Spiritedsoul and Charles Robert Lindholm

Resistance Is A Self Taught Way
A Means Of Self-Defense

To Stay True To Oneself
And What One Believes

A Wall, A Shield
Preventing Being
Caught Up In Messes Made By Others

My Mind Is Full Of Dreams,
Visions And Memories

Replaying Them
Over And Over Again
In My Head

What Once Was,
No Longer Exists,
There Is Only Ashes
Left Behind From Miserable Days

But I Resist
Lies And Hopelessness
Knowing Darkness Will End
When The Light Of Truth Shines
And Rainbows Promise
Better Days
And Hope

Sadly, The Deaths Of Tens Upon Tens Of Thousands Of Our
Beloved Family, Friends and Colleagues Occurred Because
President Trump Lied, And Continued To Lie To America
About The Deadly Nature Of Covid-19.  The Blood Of The
Innocent Will Forever Stain The Hands Of Trump And All

THE FIRST SUNRISE OF JANUARY

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

The First Sunrise Of January
Always Leaves Me Wondering
What Lies Ahead
Just Out Of Sight
Over The Horizon
In My Tomorrows

And Then It Leads My
Mind Back Over The
Last Year And
Way Back When Too

Recalling
Moments And Memories
And What If’s And
Might Have Beens

Things That Never Were
But Could Have Been
And The Happiness
That Was And
The Blessings
That I Have

Regrets
And Bittersweet
Memories Escape
Their Cell

Deep In My Heart
On The First
Sunrise Of January
Before Being
Escorted Away

Sometimes The Heart
And Soul
Need To Reflect,
Remember And Wonder,
So They Will Be
More Grateful,
And Happy During
The Coming Year

The First Sunrise Of January
Is The Demarcation,
The Ending And Beginning,
One Year Passing Away Into History
As The New Year Is Born

The First Sunrise Of January
Is The “First Time”
You Get To Make An X
On The New Year’s Calendar

WHEN IS IT APPROPRIATE TO USE THE “F” WORD?

by thereluctantpoet

Quite frankly, the “F” word can be the ONLY word in the English language that accurately describes some situations.

VISIT BY BEAR

TRUCK OVER BRIDGE
CAR THROUGH ROOF
ELEPHANT INQUIRY

OH SHIT

TSUNAMI

VISIT FROM THE KING

SURFER AND SHARK

The word is ‘FEAR’ of course!  

What in the world were you thinking?  

Sometimes I worry about you.
