The Rain Fall #poetryinspiredbymusic #walkofftheearth


Through the valleys‬
‪I fostered a spirit‬
‪To release me‬
‪From the demons‬
‪Of being without you‬
‪My hand empty‬
‪Open and cupped‬
‪Eyes drifting‬
‪To a pewter sky‬
‪Knowing the rain fall‬
‪Would have to fill the vessel‬
‪And my soul’s requiem of longing
‪Making my peace‬
‪With being separated‬
‪From the out pouring of your love‬

Sometimes the Imperfect is Perfect #Septemberfalls

‪For all things

‬‪He carried a penchant‬

‪For perfection‬

‪Flush‬

‪Plumb‬

‪Not a line, word‬

‪Or sentiment‬

‪Out of place‬

‪Save for the woman‬

‪Who stole his soul‬

‪He was willing to extol her‬

‪Chaotic‬

‪Penchant for passion‬

‪Of whim‬

‪And bodily corruption ‬

‪A devastation and satiating‬

‪Of hunger‬

‪Knowing perfection‬

‪Could never hold‬

What he needed

Or wanted from her

This, A Season #septemberfalls 

‪This‬


A season‬

‪In a garden of sorrows‬

‪Where tear drops fall‬

‪Bleeding hearts mourn‬

‪And stones‬

‪Are planted‬

‪In a frostbitten soil‬

‪And forget me nots grow‬

Evolving #septemberfalls

‪When the unrealistic dream

‬‪Of being someone’s all‬

‪Says bon voyage‬

‪To fairy tales‬

‪And Darwin’s point‬

‪Of adaptation‬

‪Settles in‬

‪Creating a dissonant home‬

‪For your evolving heart‬

How Was I To Know #poetry

If I had known my bones

Would need carrying 

I would have never built

A home inside your heart

A burden unlike the one

I carried in your tears

An ocean of stories

I couldn’t let go of

And now the weight of yesteryear

Anchors us to one another

As we both beg the other

To cut the rope

Cemetery Secrets #augustfalls

‪I keep searching 

In hopes of finding you‬

‪But cemetery secrets‬

‪Are rather coming through‬

‪And it’s only your ghost‬

‪That still lives here‬

‪And why should I be surprised‬

‪That the secret‬

‪That I still love you‬

‪Is written everywhere‬

‪But on the stone‬

‪That holds your name‬

Stone – #DearPoet #behindthescenes #insidescoop

Stone by Entirety J Roberts

Obviously some of what I write comes from life experience. This poem finds its way from two young adults, entering a marriage and a life we barely knew how to maintain. So when push came to shove and a marriage of 17 years came to its head, we became hardened towards pursuing one another with no energy left to give. We took a hard line, the disinterest, the lack of drive to pursue the work it would take to restore our marriage. Of course there is more to it, there is always more to it. But there came new beginnings; For both of us, with this loss. For me my resurrection came with pen and ink and finding out that I needed to find a part of life that was my own, and could fill my bucket. And I am grateful for my journey even though at times it has totally sucked.

Offerings #poetry

I give to you

What is only mine

To give
And you take

What is only yours

To take
We share

What is only

Ours to share
And we relish

In this trust

As We Wish #junefalls

‪Let us run ‬

Escape the rules‬

‪Of what society says‬

‪These ties that bind‬

‪About the ways‬

‪We must love‬

‪Shadow kissed instead‬

‪Free to be‬

‪As we wish‬
