You Are My Soulmate

published in Mythology of the Heart (poetry collection) in 2002

I feel as if we have loved before
In some other time and some other place
We share a connection deeper than most
I know your feelings, the fears you face

I see you before me, my head starts to spin
My palms get sweaty, my heart starts to pound
Your eyes see thru me, my thoughts you expose
You speak to my heart never making a sound

We share a passion time can not dim
With my every breath, I long for your touch
I love you more with each passing day
With all my heart, I need you so much

Maybe we have loved many times in the past
For eternity our hearts will always meet
The love we share is too strong to end
You ARE my soulmate, you make me complete

I Won't Go Quietly

published in Forever Spoken (poetry collection) in 2007

I won’t stay silent
You can’t hold me down
Lock me up, shut off my voice
I scream out against injustice

You tell me be quiet
Mind my own business
I can’t, I won’t turn away
As so many others before me

You say it won’t matter
My screams can’t change
All these years of oppression
It will only make me a victim too

I say you’re wrong
How else can things change
Unless someone, somewhere
Has the guts to try and change them
