Best Poem of Leria Hawkins

A Mistress To Her Lover

I see you in my rear view, as you settle to make the call
Covering the delay, with a well-worn blanket of lies…

What is it? ...ten seconds out the door
You’ve a hand on the phone, and a foot on the floor
Just ten seconds more, I’ll be out of sight
You’ve revved the engine, for a hasty flight

You scrub the shine from your cheek
Check the mirror…a cool critique
Hand press those wrinkles across your chest
Better hurry now, and look your best

You skillfully disguise the walk of shame
She’s yet to learn your cheating games
Run…comb your hair, brush ...

Read the full of A Mistress To Her Lover

I Choose Fire

If you forget the road once traveled
And turn from your desires
I shan’t travel with you dear
For my heart still burns with fire

And if you wipe the memories clean
And forsake the whispering wind
The journey you must go alone
For I won’t hold your hand
