Poetry: Deep Within

Deep Within

Where are these musings
thoughts in your head
where are those feelings
woes that you dread.

Where are those secrets
kept in the dark
who brought the bleakness
thorough and stark.

What are you thinking
within your mind
and left you sinking
trying to find.

What is this haunting
from deep within
that which is taunting
that hell therein.

Poetry: Zodiac Foibles

Zodiac Foibles by Robert M. Levasseur

There some friends of mine
They certainly test your patience.
Shining way up high, they sigh
And form lovely constellations.

Aries is a daredevil
Impulsive and foolhardy
Selfish and quick-tempered
He often ruins the party.

And Taurus doesn’t budge
Self-indulgent and greedy.
So possessive and so jealous
His girlfriend calls him needy.

Let’s not forget tense Gemini
Twins sly in their cunning.
Nervous and inconsistent
Superficial always sunning.

Cancer’s touchy and moody
Always clinging onto life.
Both Changeable and emotional
Some Prozac would calm her strife.

Pompous Leo so patronizing
Bossy and too interfering.
Dogmatic in his intolerance
His bad breath is room clearing.

Worry wart fussy Virgo is
A conservative perfectionist.
So overcritical and so harsh.
crumbs on the floor never missed.

Libra the gullible flirtatious girl
Easily influenced and changeable.
She so pretty, but so indulgent
Loves to be taken upon the table.

Like Taurus we have Scorpio
Resentful compulsive so obstinate.
Secretive obsessive and jealous
He’ll argue with you till it’s late.

Sagittarius is foolishly optimistic
Careless and superficial
Irresponsible and tactless
blows his paycheck, every nickel.

Depressing Capricorn is miserly
Pessimistic and so demanding.
Conservative grudging depression
No one around him likes standing.

Aquarius intractable and contrary
Perverse in his loner’s detachment.
Unemotional his eccentricity
Isolate girls from their enchantment.

And finally Pisces so idealistic
Vague escapist passions kept secretly.
Weak-willed follower easily led
Lives with Puff in the land Honalee.

And so is writ, my tender devotion
For constellations twelve in motion.
And coming soon, in passing time
With kinder words for them I’ll rhyme.

Poetry: Contemplations

Children Playing

Echoes of
children’s laughter
through the glass
journey joyously
into my silence.

It is cold outside
frigid actually
and yet these
bundles of joy
stomp and run on
the snow stained
frozen ground.

Crimson cheeks
happy shrieks
one stops stares
runs towards a
squirrel who
frets and twitches
on the gray

So I reminisce
about a life
I never had
a life full
of happy girls
and happy boys
which had all
but escaped me.

Let’s Have Some Fun With The Zodiac

I am here to tell you more
of my friends whom I adore.
For constellations twelve in motion
whom I write of with tender devotion.

Aries courageous and energetic
dynamic and is confident
His enthusiasm and his quick wit
it’s a wonder he’s not omnipotent.

And Taurus persistent and so loving
patient and reliably warmhearted.
He’s dependable and quite generous
with his help my business started.

Let’s not forget lively Gemini
communicative and eloquent.
Youthful in their exuberance
they strive to always be content.

Cancer’s protective so sympathetic
shrewd loving and emotional.
Intuitive and imaginative she’ll
help you aspire to the highest goal.

Generous Leo loving and faithful
is generous and warm of heart.
Creative and an enthusiast you
always can trust him from the start.

Modest and shy Virgo is meticulous
reliable practical and truly diligent.
She’s intelligently quite literal and
her sexual technique is heaven-sent.

Libra is sociable and diplomatic
romantic idealist and charming
Peaceable lovely and confounding
assuring with words never harming.

Powerful Scorpio is determined
exciting and forceful and passionate.
His intuition and magnetic mind
help a friend in need doesn’t hesitate.

Sagittarius jovial and good-humored
optimistic honest freedom lover.
An intellectual so philosophical
fantastic mind you will discover.

Patient Capricorn practical prudent
Ambitious yet disciplined reserve.
Her patience and careful approach
to life teaches many things so observe.

Aquarius honest the intellectual
humanitarian friendly originality.
Independent and loyal to the end
he will take his affection to totality.

And finally Pisces so sensitive
imaginative kind and compassionate.
Selfless and intuitive her affection
the world is a better place with her in it.

These are just some friends of mine
they fill my heart with imagination.
Shining way up in night’s sky
each one their own unique constellation.

Poetry: I Took It

Poetry I Took It

I never realized
how much it meant
to you how much
you favored it.

I thought I loved her
but I was young
so young and I
didn’t know better.

It was easy to
take it once I
saw how beautiful
the bracelet was
all those charms.

So I took it
when I saw it
mingling with other
not so pretty things.

I took it and
marched over to
her house and I
put it on her wrist.

I didn’t get the
response I was hoping
for but now she
has it for good.

Forgive me it was
a precious memory
to you
and I took it
and gave it away
