In The StarsYou play me like a melody.Let me be your song.In fluid bursts of rhapsody,Feelings come on strong.Our dreams made to follow.You in mine as I sleep.If I wake feeling hollow,Still in thoughts, you I keep.Destinies are so fragile.Relying on paths we choose.Our minds must be agile,Or too quickly we can lose.We cling to what we know,Even when it's lost its spark,Truer feelings too hard to show.Till we unveil them in the dark.And yet we are connected,By bits and strands each day.Passing thoughts disconnected,From our own realities we stray.In the stars, we are linked,Channeling love undetected.Accepting all that's chinked,Giving what we've both reflected.On this journey, we continue,For we are loving the ride.In each other, finding sinew,To keep shining till we collide.©2015 Carol Gregoire
Kissing In A DreamHow is it you feel intimate,When of you, I know nothing?As a lost, now found soulmate,In my mind, you are lingering.The one I was kissing in a dream,Eyes of fire and so handsome.A pairing we will hold in esteem,A love that has yet to become.Or once in a faraway place,We were lovers in our pasts.Dying in each other's embrace,Only our love this day still lasts.Reconnected by circumstance,Wavelengths entwined and strong.In darkness under stars, we'll dance,Knowing this is where we belong.Within a garden of slate, I wait,In the light of a single moonbeam.Trees cast a shadow on the gate,Till again we are kissing in a dream.The sun rises and shows its light.I open my eyes and you I feel.We'll meet again another night.Was it a dream, or was it real?©2015 Carol Gregoire
UnravelingThoughts are powerful,Isn't that what you say?You can never deny me;I've brought you here today.Fight it all you want,You don't get a choice.Make it easy on yourself;Listen to your inner voice.Dark clouds and rainbows,All in a night's dreams.When you close your eyes,Nothing is as it seems.Pretending you don't care,Yet once again, you are here.Why you even bother, unlessYou need to know I'm there.So run away, ignore me,But it's always the same.You wake up in a sweat,While saying my name.You can pretend it's over,Nothing left but small traces.Till you feel me and see me,Inside everybody's faces.You are losing all control,Time unraveling the norm.Come now, hold me close,We'll get through another storm.©2015 Carol Gregoire
Lazy DayI'm sitting on my porch, a good place to daydream.The clouds piled deep, like bowls of whipped cream.Overhead gently clangs the sound of wind chimes.While I sit here relaxed, as my head fills with rhymes.Today is a hot one; the air is humid and steamy.I've many things to do, but my mind is still dreamy.I wait for motivation, but it doesn't seem to come.I stay 'midst the flowers to songs the grasses strum.The world won't fall apart if I choose to just be lazy.Who can blame me when it's so very hot and hazy?I could go to the pool, to the lake, or to the beach.Yet that all requires effort and would just be a reach.So a lazy day it will be, just me, myself, and I.I glide gently in my chair, as I hear cars go by.Sipping on my coffee while I chill in comfy clothes.If I stay here long enough, off I might simply doze.All the chores and laundry will just have to wait.What is one more day, tomorrow will be the date.Closing my eyes to meditate, I feel my spirits alight.For now,
