WARPAINT

Here, put this on- this cheek color,
and cover up all your freckles,
donít forget to curl your hair,
eyeliner goes right here,
mascara makes your eyelashes long,
but not for long,
if you use all these things,
you wonít have to share your heart,
you wonít have to take the chance,
heíll see the fear in your eyes, as you
remember all the others who's lies,
you believed before...


Angel of My Dark


in the solitude of my nights, you open the door,
to my heart, so lost and lonely,
and you pick up each part,
and put it back together,
hold me near, quiet my fears,
tenderly brushing back my hair,
kissing my eyes...

I cannot see your face, but I know when you are near,
I remember your hands loving me,
holding me, tenderly making
my love precious,
brushing off the dirt of the forgotten heart,
and you sing to me, bring to me,
the courage to start
in the daylight, I need you,
in the sunrise I reach to you,
but you are gone like a song without words,
leaving me alone to face the day,
and wait on eves gentle shadows,
to hold you once again,
just once again...

in naked shadows your caress touches me,
with a passion I canít deny,
where can I go, what can I do,
to make you come true
my angel of the darkest
parts of my heart.






More about Melody: 

Melody  lives in Juneau, Alaska. She is currently working on a book of poetry, and has been published in The Vault-Soul Fountain Art and Literary Journal.  She was the only person chosen to represent Alaska in this journal. Here's a quote from the author:

"I express my soul in my poetry, and being of the Tlingit Nation/Raven Moiety/Dog Salmon Clan, the experience of a single Native woman living on her own, a very humble existence, but very rich in that the beauty of life is abounding everyday for us to enhale and enjoy."

"I I hope they (my poems) express my life as it is full of love, life and the joy of expecting each day as a miracle from God.
We must learn to seek peace and walk in beauty, and find the harmony to balances our life. "


Well said Melody we here at Romance Haven are proud to feature your beautiful poetry.
