Never Heard


I was going in one
direction but
my day

went in another

not a bad day just
filled with different
instead of

the same

I happened to look
up and it was
almost dark

four turned to six

you my sweet muse
are my constant
love on

days that slip away

you my sweet muse
are the joy of my
heart on

days that fall short

you my sweet muse
tell me words of
love that I’ve

never heard

Poet, Writer, US Army (Retired)

I dreamed of writing when I was a youngster. The love of books and writing may have helped to dull the pain of severe sexual abuse as I was sexually abused by two men at my father’s place of work from age 8 to 12 or so. I learned about this for the first time when I was 50 years old. So, as a boy, reading was the only place I had to go to. My fantasy world was better and safer than my real world. I loved reading and writing.
Reading books and writing poetry are a joy to me still and are an important part of my life. (See my About Me page on my blog for the complete profile.)
