Guitar Player, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Remembering days not so long ago
You easily plucked the strings of my heart
A rational mind said better go slow
But I fell for you at the very start

In the beginning was a dream come true
We sang, we danced, an exciting romance
Day and night, my thoughts were of only you
But your actions soon broke that loving trance

At first was consumed with singing the blues
Was restless with many a sleepless night
Trying to understand your hurting ruse
But I’m alright with you out of my sight

Needed to thank you for making me strong
To you I dedicate my next love song

Ephemerality, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Ephemerality
Wispy cirrus clouds of height whisking by,
While countless diamonds dance on the water,
And swallows do somersaults in the sky.
Like children there is a constant banter.
Sitting in the cool comfort of the shade,
Quiet as a lion stalking its prey,
I wait for the fawns and does to invade,
To drink the water, but long they’ll not stay.
The wonders of this day soon to depart,
To return only as a memory,
Bringing subtle warmth to my beating heart.
Tis my wish these memories never flee.
