Barnes &

An eclectic first volume of poetry, spanning from the
inspirational to the erotic, to nature’s imagery and
patriotic poems that express and capture the pride of this
country. Memories from childhood’s laughter and pains of
growing are expressed, as well as family values garnered
along the way reflect the emotional sorrows and joys, to adult
maturation of loves and, not to be omitted, carnal lust.

Maidens Prayer


A maiden’s prayer, spoken on reverent lips

from a bewildered seeking pinning heart

for a lost lover who has gone astray

speaking out loud, I shout to you

calling out my lovelorn agonize pain

can you hear me crying out to the night?

the man once was mine before he took flight

but now it seems he belongs to another

sitting here I weep, as if on predestine cue

whipping my blistered eyes I rise to fate

moving on to love again as I know I must do

for if he chooses to be with you

I know this man never was mine for true

I have heard my sisters in loves mourning

with beseeching expression of this life lesson

felt their pain; never thinking it would be me

as did they, I found out that it matters not who

that if he could do this to me he could to you
