Poem: Somewhere... Anywhere

Somewhere... Anywhere

By: Joi Maree Flowers


That's all I need to do
But it's hard to when you're surrounded by

And since I can choose
Whether I stay or go
I'll go

Don't know where to
But it will be somewhere nice

Poem: Searching For Desire

Searching For Desire
By: Joi Maree Flowers

Somewhere out there is desire
Walking with the crowd
Or alone
Searching just as I to find
A sight that greets the eyes

A look
That we both will recognize

And once seen
We will know

And with our first words
We will say hello

Poem: Love's Truth

Love's Truth

By: Joi Maree Flowers

I love how we love
I love how we grow
I love how we know
Each other
So well

Though we have more about each other to learn

Best friends
A team

A dream
For us both
Come true

We are

Poem: Excuse Yourself

Excuse Yourself
By: Joi Maree Flowers

Your approval
Woo me
Sway me
Confirm me

I know I'm suppose to be here

So who are you to question otherwise

Someone with green eyes

Who has no business of their own to mind

Poem: (Peace Be) Still

(Peace Be) Still
By: Joi Maree Flowers

Like the soft breeze after the rough of the storm has passed
Like the silence in the room after the final word has been spoken
Like the relief after a deep breath held in is exhaled

Peace brings calm

The air is gentle
The silence is caring
From the mouth comes a whispered sigh

Peace is your friend
Hugging you

Poem: Love You

Love You
By: Joi Maree Flowers

Sometimes there are not enough words to say
Nor enough hours in the day
To tell you
And show you
Just how much I love you

So I'll just spend forever doing so

Until you receive
All those words
In the given time allowed

Until all my love loves you

Poem: Tick Tock

Tick Tock
By: Joi Maree Flowers

Tick tock
Tick tock

The walking man steps halt
But the clock doesn't stop

Tick tock
Tick tock

A day lost behind time
Too far ahead now to be caught

Tick tock
Tick tock

A thought runs across the mind
A wonder of where the new direction to find

Tick tock
Tick tock

Fast forward
Does the time move

Even when life stands still
Sunrise after
Sunset after
Sunrise after

Fast forward
Does the time move

Tick tock
Tick tock

The choice

Stand still
Forward move

Poem: Thinkin' And Thankin'

Thinkin' And Thankin'
By: Joi Maree Flowers

I woke up thinkin'

'Bout those times that could've been my last
'Bout those things which I wanted but never became
'Bout those answers to prayers that didn't come at that very moment
But eventually came at the right time

'Bout all
The reasons
The seasons
And meanings
Of what was
And will be

Poem: Not

By: Joi Maree Flowers

What good is a dream
If only it remains a thought

The same as unspoken words
Silenced by a closed mouth
