Susan Lacovara Poems

It is not with the sadness,
Nor madness,
Of Van Gogh
That I exclude myself

There it laid
what remained
of your snuffed out cigar
Just lying there...

Love the sound of lifted laughter
Love the thought of ever after
Love is love, all love is love

You were my very first friend
With sunlit yellow hair,
which directly complimented my dark mane
We were a pair, uniquely different...

I can still see their faces, in the hallways of my mind
I can still feel the traces, of the love they left behind...
As the skyline changed and the whole world was rearranged
After the towers fell, we did rise.

We didn't know better
Back then
How time would chase our dreams
Change them

You could not have been any prettier
than a snowflake in the sun
How your silver frosted glistening glint,
So caught my eye, then melted, done..

Did I forget my wrap,
draped over the winged back chair
in the room where you wrestled me
pinning me to your attention

Intermission over
Where have you been
The urgency in your voice
On nights when your missing me

I will come and find you, friend
Where you lay your troubles
Out to dry
Help you iron the wrinkles of worry

I am, that I am...
A chameleon...
Shifting between the hues
That camouflage my insecurities,

With only the crickets chatter
To keep me company,
The breaking dawn
Lets herself in

I love the fall of feather rain
But fear the thunder in the distance
I see the rise of planted grain
And hopeful it sways with resistance

Brewing over my wake up coffee
I can't help but wonder...

Does she love you with the richness

I thought I'd pick you daffodils
On this stunning yellow day
With fresh bouquet
Climb up your hill

While you're busied by the breaking day
Your stacked high schedule
To file away
In black and white

Like a moth drawn to an open flame,
I follow the glorious moon
that hangs so low tonight,
I swear I can reach up...and steal it

It startled me at first, so unexpected...
There between the yellowing pages
of a schoolgirl' s poured out poetry
a scripted note...

Let me enter lightly, into the breaking new day's promise
steady and ready to encounter the beauty
that is offered with no price tag attached...
bargain hunting for a breathtaking moment of clarity...

Just when I think your image has faded
dimmed, by the thief of time
In the most unusual of places
You show up...dressed up in yourself

The Best Poem Of Susan Lacovara

Artist Alone

It is not with the sadness,
Nor madness,
Of Van Gogh
That I exclude myself
On winter days, in February...
Neither is it with the passion
Of Mc Kuen' s loneliness
That prompts me to feed
The returning gray cat...
Surely it isn't the same
Broken hearted heaviness
That took Dali' s spirit
Makes me question why
I surrender
To the paleness
Of my room, unattached
To another's heart....
Tis merely my own poet's prison
That paints my starry starry night.

For Poetry Month our group has selected readings about or using water as the central image. Irrigation is in the program and the reader usually includes a short biographical note about the poet. My usual sources are blank so all the audience will know is that Ms. Lacovara has a twitter account. Any suggestions appreciated.
