Poems written from the heart.

River Lover

You pour love inside me
Sharing your seeds of life
With our energy

Giving all the spirit
Has to bestow
In purity

Your love transcends
So many layers
Barriers erected by the world

Your life force is pure
Powerful and forceful
It seeks out purpose

It seeks to revive
All that has grown cold
Your heart melts the caps

Releasing the flow
Of raging waters
Into the

Gentle breeze of
My calm stream
We connect

Allowing the waters
To freely bind us as
One long-flowing river

River of life
River of love
River of spirit


Just some of my thoughts on…. Messy Love

Messy love…

Just Some of My Thoughts... Fedora Loves Poetry 2018Love is never uncomplicated for me. Why? I don’t know. I encountered a song by Corinne Bailey Rae “Till It Happens to You”. Damn wish someone would have told me. Told me how messy love takes away the color of love.

Passion burns hot through our love. We will always have the red heat between us. But due to division in our love only a stripe represents what used to cover the entire heart. The gray covers most of our picture because hearts have been hurt. As I see my friends in similar messy relationships, I begin to wonder has the become the new thing?

What happened to truth? What happened to respect? I can remember times when people may have been in messy relationships, but they respected each other. Respect is now a dirty word as I watch people using innocent children to keep someone close to them. How people use those who love them as pawns in a chess game. What happened to respect? What happened to integrity?

Wait am I fooling myself.

Messy love paints stripes on your heart. The red stripe of passion that comes and goes. The gold stripe of what will be if you ever get there. The gray stripes take up most of the heart because this is where the truth lives. The reality of the love. The pain of the love. The gratitude of the love. The compromise. The purpose for all this is here as well.

But there are times when the purpose gets buried so deep that I forget. I forget that there was a really good reason and purpose for our connection, our love, for each other. But when those moments hit, the real ugly truth of the messiness. I lose a little bit and the color fades a little more. But the shininess of the gold stripe keeps me when he says, “Hey Beautiful”, along with the heat of the passion as he expresses his true adoration of me. That makes it hard to stay in the gray.

So, despite the messiness of this love. I still find the desire to open my heart each time he is near me. To love regardless of what I get back. To love on purpose. Purpose may or may not return to you. So, if you don’t have a good reason (purpose) for loving and staying, then they gray may take over. Allow purpose to be your foundation for love.

Till It Happens To You by Corinne Bailey Rae

Fedora Loves You. Peace


[Verse 1]
I know what I said was heat
Of the moment
But, there’s a little truth in
Between the words we’ve spoken
It’s a little late now to fix a heart
That’s broken
Please don’t ask me where I’m going

Cause I don’t know, no I don’t know
It used feel like heaven, it used feel like
May, I used to hear those violins playing
Harp strings like a symphony
Now they’ve gone away
Nobody wants to face the truth
But, you won’t believe what love can do
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

[Verse 2]
Went to the old flat
Guess I was trying to turn the clock back
But, how come that nothing feels the same now
When I’m with you?
We used to stay up all night in the kitchen when
Our love was new
Ooh love am I a fool to believe in you

[Chorus 2]
Cause I don’t know, no I don’t know anymore
It used feel like heaven, it used feel like may
I used hear those violins playing harp strings
Like a symphony now there gone away
Nobody wants to know the truth until their
Hearts broken
Don’t you dare tell them what you think to do
Until they get over, you can only learn these things
From experience when you get older
I just wish that someone would’ve told me
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

“Good Love” by 11:11

Do I ever cross your mind?
Even though I crossed the line?
Do you ever think ’bout me?

Yeah, I know we had good times
Baby, I was dumb and blind
To open my eyes and see…
Ooh yeah

There was good love, waiting for me
Too much, time and energy
On someone, that ain’t you
Ooh woah

There was good love, waiting for me
Too much, time and energy
On someone, that ain’t you

Do I ever cross your mind? (Cross your mind?)
Do you ever think ’bout me? (’bout me baby)

Yeah, I know we had good times (good times)
Dumb and blind (dumb and blind)
I just want only you lovin’ me
Ooh yeah, yeah

I just want that good love
Good love, baby
Good love, with you
I want it darling, you know I need it

I just want that good love
Good love, baby
Good love, with you

Yes, You May Love Me

Love is all that was needed
To bring me into your world
You open my eyes to a world
Filled with joy and peace

I miss you each time
We depart
But long to see your smile
Feel your touch
Like the first time

You give me what has been
For so long
Pieces I didn’t know
Were missing
Are Connected

I needed to know
Someone would stand
Even when it was hard
Not because of pity
But because love
Overwhelmed my heart

Opening my third eye
Sensing finally the beauty
That’s before me
The wisdom bestowed upon me
The love of spirit
That bonds us

Deep within the soul
Which suddenly realizes
Fear pushing
Love aside
Because the heart
Was dropped once before

It’s delicate condition
Prevented it from
Embracing all
That love brings

But today they stared
At each other
Eye to eye
Toe to toe
Until they reconciled

The heart opens
Love says hello
I’m here
She receives him
As she releases the
Anchor that bound her

I love you
I want you
I don’t want you
To leave
Yes, you may
Love me
