Tequila ~ A Sonnet

His hair glows purple beneath neon lights…
Cheshire cat smile, dark angel in disguise.
I’m sinking deep in this powerless plight…
Lost at sea, drowning in ebony eyes.

I search for answers, my fears to allay…
A few shots of Cuervo to ease my pains.
Choking it down, it takes my breath away…
Oh Tequila, your warmth inside my veins!

I move to the rhythm, fueled by the fire…
I let my black hair down and dance for you.
Locked in your arms, I succumb to desire…
Entangled in passion the whole night through.

Shaken and stirred, I lost all sense of time…
Yet on my tongue remains the taste of lime.

Clones, cubicle wars, in my own little cubby, office space, worker bees, drones,
inside the hive, corporate world, big brother is watching, computer world,
hackers, empty nest…. I give up!

Winds of Change

Winds of Change

The maelstrom is rapidly approaching
As the ominous gray clouds portend.
We do not know the havoc to be wrought
When those winds of change descend.

Waves of transformation crash upon us,
Causing devastation and unending pain.
Crawling through a black labyrinth as
Desperation sets in, feeling quite insane.

We sink into a black hole of hopelessness
Devoid of breath, consumed by fear.
We cry out in the vacuum of space,
But does anybody out there hear?

They say advice is what we ask for
When we cannot make a choice.
When we face our darkest days,
We struggle within to find our voice.

We will find our way back to the light,
Like a gypsy moth drawn to the flame.
But we will never quite be the way we were,
For nothing in life ever stays the same.

This poem was written for Blogophilia, a writing group that originated on Myspace.  I am posting it after the fact to get some practice over here on WordPress.

No picture given for secret bonus points this week.

We’re supposed to guess based on the topic, so here goes…


Barbara Streisand, Robert Redford, Misty water colored memories,

light the corners of my mind, evergreen, winds of change, crazy,

scattered in the wind.
