LOLA HORNOF - POEMS
It catches you off guard, in the most unsuspecting places,
love at first site or an old friend,
That tingle in your stomach,
when you see that one person,
you are filled with joy,
A tender hug,
A sweet kiss,
As the ocean wind ran over her she contemplated,
Her thoughts raced and heart pounded,
The smell of the ocean did not soothe her,
Her issues were too huge,
Her heart was full of sorrow,
Hopelessness fell over her,
There were no options for her,
Death seems the only way out.
Autumn in Michigan
The trees glow with yellows, reds , oranges,
The smell of bonfires in the distance and hoodies are welcome,
Bringing in the fall with a brisk touch of wind in my hair,
As the leaves fall slowly, children jumping in the piles,
A full moon brightening the night sky, with each brisk blow of wind, we know winter in coming, but how we enjoying the autumn treasures,
It is so brief and is the most beautiful time of the year.
The sun hit her,
The warm rays made her feel alive,
Making her feel happy,
Vibrant colors surrounded her,
The hope of happiness,
All the energy summer brings,
New challenges a wait.
I wonder if the trees can hear me
When I scream aloud,
Or if the dandelion screams,
When I pick him out.
There's no telling where life can take us;
One day I'm a blade of grass,
But today I am myself-
Life chooses for me to be me.
You may think, at times, that the world is fatal
That all just dies, and drifts, and slowly fades away
That these lives we slave for now,
Mean nothing to the end.
I am here to tell you, little girl inside,
That though you grow outside-
You remain you.
That while others will thrive,
With masks to survive,
You alone, shall be you
I have seen the way you mark people,
They excite in your art,
Art of unique originality,
And art in love.
Do not keep seeking, instead, be sought
You spend your whole life searching for what's naught
These walls you channel are set bound in stone
You must find those who will tear down your heart,
Tear down your sorry heart,
To find some love.
Love, it may so happen,
Love, it works, I tell you.
Never stop saying, as you always be saying,
“Nothing, nothing but love.”
Happiness is something
We all deserve to find;
More and more my happiness
With you is on my mind.
I need to find the courage
To show how much I care;
Then if you feel the same
We’ll be a happy pair
Her heart was racing,
Breathless for him,
His touch was all she wanted,
The thought gave her butterflies,
Her hands were tingling,
The anticipation was excruciating,
Finally his touch
