sweet with forbidden kisses
thickness that clung to me
as the stars seemed to.fall
past a field of moon tide
bed of black pearl
my heart could not follow
upon that soft spring breeze
that your sighs echoed
as mandolins cried into evening
and moonlight crested upon hills
with a ghost fire that burned my soul
your kiss the piece of the puzzle
i never pictured
a hunger that consumes
a lost heart
that your caress left hollow.
I have lived in California (SF Bay Area) all my life except for the two years I was stationed in Germany when I was in the US Army.
I spent 30 years in the private sector working in different managerial positions - learned that the best policy is just to treat people the way you want to be treated - a simple lesson that simply is often ignored.
