A Goodnight


The depths of night envelope me

Your aroma entices my desire

The sensation of you by my side

Holding you close

My excitement grows

Stokes my hunger

Skin silky smooth

Warm to my touch

Nothing to lose

Pulling you tighter

Your touch is an igniter

Passion on fire

I lose all inhabitation

Interlaced within you

Until the night is through

A Goodnight for two

Reintroduction of A Soldier’s Walk


I just wanted to say thank you first to all of you out there that have taken the time to read my writings. When I first started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect or whether I would be able to even write anything. My experience with writing anything was an occasional letter to someone and writing Papers in High School and College (A long time ago for both). I am what you would have called at the time, a failed husband, a self-prescribed underwhelming father and just going through the motions of life. I was really dead inside and was lost at how to get out of it. My wonderful wife, who I almost lost due to this absence I had allowed into our marriage is the one who lead me into this world. She has been blogging for around 3 years and I must say is an amazing writer. See her blog here; https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/ . I won’t go into her journey with her blog, but let’s just say my absence in our marriage was behind some of her writings. I didn’t know a thing about poetry beyond maybe Dr. Seuss books. I just knew I had so much bottled up inside of me. I was never one who was good with emotions, I just bottled them up and stuffed them deep down inside. With writing this blog I have found a freedom to express a lot of these emotions not only through my writing, but in my life. Over these last few months I have been on a journey that was to win the heart of my wife back. I know this is not a journey with an end, but something I need to do every day.


A majority of my writing has been inspired on my feelings towards my lovely wife. I hope this journey may inspire others to know that it is never too late to fight for what is right, no matter what it may be. I know a lot of you were surprised to find out that ~ M and I were husband and wife. It was a decision made mutually between us to hide that fact until we knew was the right time. I have learned a lot about myself through this blogging adventure and reading and interacting with so many of you have really made a lasting imprint on my life. I am amazed by all the talent I see through so many of you and am inspired by it. Again I want to just reintroduce myself and say hello and thank you for coming along on this journey with me.

Yup that is a real picture of me.



Today I had a good day.

The Sun shown through the cracks in the shutters

A glint light upon my eyes

Awake to the world around,

I feel your presence near to me

Your breath comes so evenly

I move myself closer to you

To feel you awakens my soul

I nestle my body next to yours

You stir for second

Closer we become entwined as one

I see your face and soak it all in

The radiance it shines out does the Sun

I hold you near not wanting to wake

Enjoying the sound of your gentle breath

To wake in your arms is all I desire

To hold my love so close is such joy

My heart full of passion

My soul full of you

Today was a good day before it really happened.


This is my first attempt at poetry and I write it out to the love of my life, who has inspired me to become so much more.  Love you Babe…

This is the first poem i really ever wrote. Hope you enjoy my first poem from my blog.


Emma and Pippa


Large as a pony

A joyful day for you is just lying around the house

You are so big, but yet so funny

Lying around quiet as a mouse

Except when your snores begin to roar

Cuddly as a kitten

Gentle giants are what they are called

Shedding enough hair I could knit a whole bunch of mittens

On the couch is where you sprawled

Gnawing on bones as big as logs

Drool dripping all around

Our wonderful pair of mastiff puppy dogs

So much love from them can be found

A part of the family day after day

Emma and Pippa Happy Birthday




Radiant upon my face

Flowing into my soul

Beauty exudes from its glow

Happiness brightens my day

Your smile takes me away

I long to feel its warmth

Lips filled with passion

Wearing a hotly designed fashion

Wishing to make it mine

From now until the end of time




Tears falling to the ground

Tears you have shed all around

Tears you cry in the lonely times

Tears in the sad times too

Over the years so many tears

Times of trouble

Times of strife

Cried for times that you have felt alone

A heart filled with so many tears

Wishing I could hold each of your tears in my hands

Take them into the sunlight

Let the sun shine through them

Exposing the rainbow inside each of your tears.

Ice Cream Cone


Cold cool and delicious

Milky smooth to feel

Wrapping my lips around its tip

Licking longingly with my tongue

Tasty treat to my buds

Gathering all its flavor in a swirl

Such a delectable treat for me to eat

Licking, lashing all around

Nibbling it all on down

Savoring my luscious Ice Cream cone

One is good, a pair would better
