Welcome


The welcome mat laid out to start
friendships new and renewed
in cyberspace we meet and share
what’s up with me and you

From all over these friends now come
together relationships we build
through posts and messages
our lives to be filled

Though we may have never met
or once knew each other long ago
friendship is just a click away
learning things we want to know

Over time and space we connect
strands in the universe are we
new and renewed in cyberspace
welcome friends I now see

Friend


There are those called friend
and the word doesn’t fit
for they are only shells
of what a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who turn out to be users,
liars and backstabbing gossips
nothing a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who are only when they wish it
and not when you truly need them
never what a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who are there through it all
walking heart to heart
always what a friend should be.

Burn


Heat filled days that smolder
the air lapping like tongues of flame
breathing becomes harder to control
each touch a burn to the skin

The flames continue into the night
nothing takes the burn away
now inside and out the fire consumes
rest and start again

The fuel of pent up yesterdays
waiting for the flames to lick
tasting the untouched the fire spreads
leaving behind only the smolder

In the embers the fire is still hot
hidden waiting for the next spark
the next breath so passionately breathed
the burn of this desire
