Being in Love by Vic Tomlinson

He liked being in love.

He felt giddy
for the first time in years.

He giggled whenever
they were together.

He had that spring
in his step when he
went to see her.

His eyes lit up
whenever he saw her.

He held her hand
when they listened to music.

He wanted to slow dance
with her and hold her close.

He liked going to romantic movies
with her and holding hands.

He looked into her eyes
and told her he loved her.

He wanted to spend his life
with her and beyond.

Nothing could be more exciting
than true love.

Awesome poem, Vic. Nothing beats this feeling. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

Going to the Dentist By Vic Tomlinson

I went to the dentist,
not a violinist.

I had a cracked tooth
according to the dental sleuth.

He said I needed a crown,
more costly than the English pound.

I agreed to the procedure,
knowing I would need anesthesia.

When the crown finally arrived,
my pain was not contrived.

I had the anesthesia
with no trace of amnesia.

When all was said and done,
I still didn’t have any fun.

Awesome poem, Vic. Loved the fun aspect your word choice gives this. 🙂

The Poetry Corner featuring Cheyenne Bramwell

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner! Please join me in welcoming Cheyenne Bramwell! 🙂

Early Morning Light by Cheyenne Bramwell

The early morning light always looks so different to me.
It’s angles and tones are softer,
And the shadows slowly creep away,
Hiding in their corners and thickening.

The early morning light always looks so different to me.
The night is usually my domain.
With its cool air and calmness,
I feel my mind open,
And the words and ideas locked inside me find their way to sweet expression.
The light I have comes dimly down,
Or sits stark and unnatural.

The early morning light always looks so different to me.
Other than the quiet padding of my feet on tile,
And the waking tweets and twaddles of the birds,
It’s quiet, but not lonely.
The air fills with possibility for the day,
Opportunities for growth and discovery.

The early morning light always look so different to me.
Seeing a new day begin,
And the Earth renew itself,
Gives me a new hope for the future.
That maybe one day,
The fog within my own mind will clear,
And the new day will come shining with a crisp new light.
I will stand there that day,
In wrinkled pajamas and with hair in my face, stomach growling,
And watch as the new day begins sharp and clean,
And the shadows slowly creep away.

Awesome poem, Cheyenne! This is my new favorite. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Darkness by Vic Tomlinson

It comes upon you
like a thief in the night.

I lie here,
soaking in the blackness
and the sounds that accompany it.

The creaking noises of the house,
and footsteps outside,
are becoming louder and closer.

It sounds like a chain
is dragging across
the back porch.

I’ve heard it before,
but there is no chain,
dog or people for miles.

I listen for more.
My heart starts to race.

It feels like it’s going
to jump out of my chest.

I’m breathing hard.
I’m worried that
someone will break in.

I hear a banging
against the house.

It must be a loose shutter
or maybe a burglar.

Oh no! I panic
and snuggle under the covers.

Darkness invites these happenings.
I can’t wait until daylight.

Awesome poem, Vic. This is one of my favorites. Reminds me of so many nights after watching horror movies. lol Thanks for sharing. 🙂

The Poetry Corner featuring Regina Puckett

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner featuring Regina Puckett! 🙂

Memories by Regina Puckett

Memories are often disguised and veiled
As snatches of feelings and thoughts inhaled
But with each and every telling and repeating
These collected truths take a gallant beating
They become our unique and jeweled prize
Of made-up reminiscences and treasured lies

Awesome poem, Regina. This is one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
