LEFT IN THE WOODS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

If you get left in the woods
don’t worry, be calm
someone else will come along
don’t chase after
the one who left you 

First Responders say, “Stay Put”
and they are the experts
when it comes to
the left and abandoned

SINFULLY DELICIOUS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

I have heard so much about You

that should make me stay away from You

but I just couldn’t help myself

I got to close and the mere scent of You enchanted me

 

I looked at You and I couldn’t look away

I could see all of You right before my eyes

Tempting me with all the things You are

You offered me a single kiss and I was addicted to You

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

TORN

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

STRAINING                                                          

            DESPARATELY                                                   

            FUTILELY                                                 

               TRYING TO HOLD ON                                                          

               BUT THE WINDS OF REALITY                                                     

               BLOW                                                       

               TOO HARD                                                         

               TOO STRONG                                                    

               THE TENSIONS ARE                                                 

               TOO GREAT                                                       

            PRESSURE                                                

                 DEMANDS RELEASE

Constant thoughts of you
                                     pounding
on the tin roof of my mind
day and night
                    like water torture
