IN MY THOUGHTS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I’ve been holding you
in my thoughts all day
like I used to do
with my girls
at the playground

my eyes were always
watching them
that’s where my heart was
they are part of me
family
loved ones

PRETENDING DOESN’T WORK ANYMORE

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I have a hunger
I have needs
we are different
and it’s sad

I am happy if
what I am to you
is enough
to satisfy you

but sharing
time and space
and just caring for
each other
does not fill me up

MY LIGHT

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

like a raptor chasing lunch

or a missile locked on target

zooming into you

would be so easy to do

it’s a basic instinct

of my gender

 

but I’m not

a hunter seeking prey

I’ve never ever

been that way

SEASONS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

life before you
I was six when you were born
growing up in different parts of the country
tender shoots in springtime
no way of knowing we’d ever meet

becoming friends
looking forward to spending time together
talking, going places, learning to care

becoming lovers
sharing the intimacy of our bodies and souls
bonding together in the rush of oneness

THE WORD WEAVER

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Quietly he sits
in the silence of the night
weaving words inside his head
by the flickering candlelight

His muse has shown him everything
in the grand design
so he weaves his words with subtlety,
with cadence, rhythm and rhyme

A BLINDSIDE KISS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

“A blindside kiss
from out of the blue
a blindside kiss
a gift from you”

I never expected
to be crossing this line
I never expected
her lips on mine 

I never dreamed of
tongues, tangled and twisted
and I’m glad she didn’t ask
for I might have resisted

THE PROVIDER

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

He goes to work each morning
He’s up before the sun
Coffee’s in the kitchen
His toast is almost done

He’s not a workaholic
He just likes to work real hard
He thinks his time is better spent
Someplace other than the yard

BUT STILL HE’S FORCED TO WRITE

A TIDBIT OF AN INSIGHT HERE
OR AN INSPIRATION THERE
A FUNNY THOUGHT, AN INNER FEAR
A DREAM OF LOVE OR A SIMPLE JOY

from noticing the tiny things
the things forgotten
the things left undone
