Unpredictable

Fate is an unpredictable mistress. She paints a world of shadows. I stood against her and her tides of despair. Fanning the fields of hope, realizing that she was a joke, that I was the joke. Painted faces reflect in the mirror, a golden man lie on my shore His cascading smile, iridescent liquid pearls bleed across my breast. No elbow room at his feeding trough. Ironing wrinkled fields of disenchantment. Writing notes of the joke which is she. StoriesRead more

Weaver

Weaver of pain A heart collector Spoken in riddles.  The voice a sweet honeyed chime A tryst flexitime. Two spreads, three spreads A trifecta after a time  Poke it stick it  Stick your vibration in it. The fox hides Secret affections Not to escape detection. Weaving deceptions. Collector of hearts  Departs  ©2015 DLHouseholder Read more

As Time Passes

Relationships come and relationships go. People suddenly appear in our lives as if right out if a fairy tale for whatever reason, some stay and some disappear just as quickly as they arrived. When they leave as suddenly as they appeared we are left startled and confused feeling that there’s been no proper closure. They’ve walked out the door with not even so much as a goodbye, no turning to look back not even for a moment all that’s leftRead more

Through challenges, adversity, adventure, and misadventures I faced my past. In my personal quest to find Love and ultimately to find myself I had to face the hardest challenge if all, me.

I have no regrets nor resentments due to the past only admiration for the woman that I have become. Strong, resilient, caring, trusting andRead more

Written in July of 2013, I named it Resilience

From Native american descent, she was a beauty like no other so striking were her looks. A slave on a riverboat when his eyes first laid eyes on her. Awe struck by her beauty, it was love at first sight he knew she was the one who would be his wife. Her flowing black hair shining in the sunlight as she serves. She’s been crudely treated, abused but has a fire burning in her none the less. Nothing they couldRead more

Gliding

This love is so dear yet so traumatic when near.  Is it real I ask or is this just fantasy?  Created in the mind just had been too kind.  Misconstrued by self as well Stepped into a torturous hell of lies, deception and pain. I yell Outraged at circumstances Of which I found myself in a rift created by arrogant lies and pride.  Many have come yet so alone I reside on the inside.  To all who face the unknownRead more

Blue Moon

Once in a Blue Moon do you find a love like that A love like that is hard to find, too hard to hold So I let it go Through time and space this love will Pass A love like that was meant to last A love like that is hard to find, too hard to hold Young at heart, body, mind and soul Through time and space this love will roll Enduring all forever more, a spot reserved inRead more
