The Quintessential Beauty

(Dedicated to Barbra Streisand)

So many stars in the sky
So many faces in the night
Home is dark and cold
Home is where I've learned about pain.
It was plain, to me 
When I heard your voice.
Then when I gazed upon your face, of course!
You were the one
To save me at those moments I most needed you.

Your voice spoke to my heart.
No coincidence, it wasn't a lark.
Your song kept my heart from
Becoming hardened, kept it from dying,
Within me I loved you for all of these years.
No one could replace you my dear.
Every other must be patterned after you.
Your beauty, that perfect nose, those lips, your eyes.
I came close a couple times.
But no one is you, Barbra.
My quintessential Beauty.

And if I could,
Love you face to face, I would.
With no goodbyes.
Love is forever.
In true love there are no lies.
You are the quintessential Beauty.
From your heart moving outward
So we all can see.
You are the quintessential Lover.
No one better, did I ever know.
You saved my heart from ruin.
My quintessential savior.
I could only love, Barbra.
My quintessential Beauty.

Is There Nothing More?

Dinner is on the wall Children crying, infant screaming Fear freezes her when he calls Between them there is silence peeling Its the way they only know Its how love they struggle to show He knows nothing more She can’t bear the blood and sores She understands she must flea But how else can she Be? _______________ Copyright © 2020 HeardWords America

His Love for Her

Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say? Who was it that carried me on the bier? Well, will you pray for me? Or can't you wait to see another man, if only you can?  Life with you was never,  the kind I wanted.  You called me "friend" That was after you put an end to our coupling. That was after you had my ring  cut off your finger. I can hear you singing after that. You had your own definition for being a swinger. A woman, free and unattached. Since then we've never been intimate. No matter the many times I had to wait. You would love me  Only by cleaning and laundrying for me. Still you'd never give me a bath. We had a life together you never let last. Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say?     "She buried him, with his love for her.      She's not so demur."  _________ copyright ©️ 2023 SDKilmer, LLC All Rights Reserved www SDKi

Adoptee Chameleon

I love the way you move. All swank and cool. I'm a dank fool canvas. I'd like to be you. Let's see who, I can be. I love the way you speak. All soft and sexy. Everything 'bout you is neat. I'm just an entity incomplete. I'd like to be you. Let's see who, I can be. Adoptee chameleon Born to be Apparently, a utilitarian personality. Adoptee chameleon. Born to be Nothing much to see, apparently. Nobody said it would be like thees. All my own history. All blood relatives. I'm a severed twig of my family trees. They said the tree caught fire. From which they saved me. What bald liars! They took me on. An adoptee chameleon. Gill or Jillian? No one could tell. All adoptees seem to be a chameleon. How I love your body. Oh how I love your manners. Does it really matter That I want to be like you? Got nothing else to inform me. So let's see, who I am. If I can break free from Being an Adoptee Chameleon Of different colors. With different lovers. To
