HEART STRINGS

By Dori Wheeler

HEART STRINGS

~
Wrapped in your arms, I unwind
Within my eyes, you shall find
Emerald dreams, life defined
~
From loving touch, you astound
Harmony, your song profound
~
Gently, hanging in the air
It's the "L" word, do I dare?
Indulge my fate? Heart strings tear
~
From loving touch, you astound
Harmony, your song profound
~
Our bodies blend into one
Crashing waves meet torrid sun
Stars whisper, "What's done is done"...

LACED WITH FEAR

By Dori Wheeler

LACED WITH FEAR

 

One hundred fifty years have passed

The grisly murder, life aghast

Only eighteen years old that lonesome night

Death kissed her lips, a fateful plight

~

Rumor has it, she can be seen

When the veil thins on Halloween

She's a temptress with raven hair

Possess your soul without a care

~

A bad omen, the Banshee screams

This succubus invades your dreams

Dark beauty who met her demise

Becomes a hag before your eyes

~

Ominous seduction, laced with fear

Her intentions are ever clear

Pray you wake before dawn of day

'Cause she'll take you where demons play!

OBSCURED

By Dori Wheeler

 

The Empath, emotionally cursed
Ebbing, waning, totally immersed
Lack of balance, careen the scale
Stay afloat without epic fail
~
Precarious, the fortress wall
Is there shelter from the Siren's call?
Trying to swim in turbulent sea
Change is constant, whatever will be
~
Navigating a sensitive heart
Care too much, risk falling apart
The world becomes a difficult place
Boundaries blurred in time and space
~
Vulnerable, confusion high
Obscured as a tempestuous sky
Clarity, an unlikely host
Indulging life to merely coast....

STEP BY STEP

By Dori Wheeler

STEP BY STEP
~
Counting days, weathering the storm
Who would've guessed we would conform?
Sober buddies from the early days
Looking back, it was such a haze
~
Through laughter and tears you made your way
Celebrating your special day
A fine example you've become
But never forget where you're from
~
You worked so hard to get your year
With trepidation, conquered fear
I admire your tenacity
Your commitment and capacity
~
With gratitude I call you "friend"
My 'little sister' 'til the end
Ups and downs, we've had our share
But, that is neither here nor there
~
Seek silver linings when feeling low
A lesson learned, a chance to grow
Step by step you're ready to fly
Spread those wings and touch the sky...

FOR YOU I PRAY

By Dori Wheeler

FOR YOU I PRAY
~
Twenty-two years have passed us by
My August baby, weepy eyed
A bundle of joy from the start
Never desired to be apart
~
Playing together on the floor
Memories I'll forever adore
"LAND BEFORE TIME", many a toy
Prevalent items brought you joy
~
You've grown into a fine young man
Followed your dreams, formed a plan
I keep you close though miles away
Health and wisdom, for you I pray
~
Changes I'd make, I'd turn back time
The mom you deserved, life sublime
Mistakes were made along the way
A discordant price for you to pay
~
I miss you son, I love you more
But, now is your time to explore
Another chapter, let's flip the page
Hope your birthday is all the rage!!

SUSPENDED IN DUSK

By Dori Wheeler

SUSPENDED IN DUSK
~
She wasn't dealt a royal flush
Drugs and alcohol stole her blush
Haunted by life, praying to die
They misconstrued the reasons why
~
Death was her friend, her lover too
Suspending in dusk, there to woo
Taunting desires, endless needs
Captivating and sowing seeds
~
Dance in seclusion, shades of night
Clandestine meetings, far from light
Anticipation, what will be?
Wicked enchanter, sets her free
~
She slipped away holding his hand
The pain now over, life's demand
Suspended in dusk, through the veil
With sheer delight, final exhale
~
No worries of those left behind
Eyes wide open, yet they were blind
Keep your flowers, it's way too late
No mournful tears can compensate
~
Where were you in her solitude?
Claiming it was but attitude
Haunted now by September sun
It's too late, what's done is done....

WILD IN THE WIND

By Dori Wheeler

WILD IN THE WIND
~
Waning moon submits to twilight
There is no primal fight or flight
This is when magic transpires
My body aches, it requires...
~
I scream aloud without a sound
Unrighteous tease, for I am bound
Quivers from your salacious touch
You shall never be way too much...
~
Innuendo with just a glance
Wild in the wind, take that chance
Sweet surrender in Venus dew
Incantation, a bit taboo...
~
Bodies entwined ignite the skies
Illuminate like fireflies
Impotent thoughts of turning back
Clenching my nails, under attack...
~
Wild in the wind, let it be
As dawn arises, you shall see
You and I can be nevermore
It's late my love, I've had the tour...

THE DEVIL'S DUE

By Dori Wheeler

THE DEVIL'S DUE

Without fail, she adorns her mask
It truly is a daunting task
Fearing people will see within
As if conducing mortal sin
~
Unable to see her appeal
Carnal passion she yearns to feel
No Prince Charming to the rescue
Fairy tales are the Devil's due
~
A citadel surrounds her heart
Affected from the very start
Bohemian with wander lust
She leaves her suitors in the dust
~
Raven locks and emerald eyes
Captivating to her demise
So agonizing in her skin
Wonders if she'll ever win
~
Reflective night scenes, all alone
Time to uproot her comfort zone
She's resourceful, plenty of tricks
May be time to tear down bricks
~
Bid farewell to the saline streams
Time to embrace some gypsy dreams
No longer in need of disguise
Bewitching woman, oh so wise...

UNBRIDLED FOAL

By Dori Wheeler

 

Unbridled Foal

UNBRIDLED FOAL
~
Isolated, divergent, alone
Growing up without a common zone
A sapling withering in the sun
Her roots thirsty, wanting to become
~
Bohemian heart and gypsy soul
Tenacious like an unbridled foal
A ship with no anchor tossed at sea
She needed a beacon just to be
~
Can she be tamed? Only time will tell
Trusting Creator was tough to sell
Skepticism, her mortal design
Perseverance would transform her mind
~
Warrior woman on a mission
Great Spirit brought her to fruition
She broke bondage of ancient time
Radiant, she now feels the sunshine
~
Within her realm, she's the sublime queen
Inner demons conquered, quite a scene
Soaring like Eagle, she sees it all
Motivated by love, she can not fall....
