Home for awhile

by

Amber Michelle Anderson


He has returned to me
from his ship far out at sea.
A million miles no longer
between us, but soon
he will leave..
I remind myself that
this journey of loneliness
will eventually end.
I just wish they weren't
taking back my best friend.
The rules we cannot bend.
This pain inside will
stay behind to remind me
of how much I love him.
Together as one we will
stick through this and
someday our hearts will mend..
But fo now, he is home for
Awhile so I will just
sit back and smile..


No Garruntees

by

Amber Michelle Anderson

To my husband Matthew

I remind myself
that this is his duty.
The long walk down the pier
and the withering tears.He refused to
say goodbye.Just a few shrugs
and a"see you later".
Like some book you read in school.
Away he went into the dark blue sea.
Leaving the children and me..
So now we sit and wait .
For the undetermined date.
For I am a navy wife
and this is the way of my life..
No promise he can make
for the chances he's forced to take.
But just remember that
when he left me
his coming back to me
has no garuntees..

enemy

by

Amber Michelle Anderson

Enemy, You are Within
Enemy, you are within
Holding back
Biting
Cruelly on my skin.
You do burn as gin
Hot and daring
Fighting
Tonight, I live in sin.
Normally I am skeptical
although I desire
To desire with no guilt
of it, I am full.
Call it what you will
Shyness or coldness
Boldness, no
I am frozen still.
Enemy, you are about
No eye can see you
I cannot escape you
Within...or without.

Blurry State of mind

by

Amber Michelle Anderson



My soul burns with desire and anticipation
Awaiting your arrival put me into a
Blurry state of mind.

My heart weeps for you
It has been a long time
Since your body has cross my mind.
I feel lost and forgotten.
The dizziness of our love
Has made this distance between
Us feel never-ending.

I long to hear the echo of your voice
Calling from down the hall.
To hear your laughter overwhelm the rooms
Again. You are my love, my life and my best friend.
Will this nightmare ever end?

evaporated into nothing

by

Amber Michelle Anderson

The days have grown longer.
I walked outside and realized that winter had settled in.
As I stood there paralyzed by the nip in the air, the wind
Ripped through my body and felt like a thousand little icecicles
Had pierced through my being and
separated me into tiny particles.
There I lay in segments with no one to put me back together
Just left alone to evaporate into nothing___..

midnight lullabies

by

Amber Michelle Anderson

There mothers and fathers left on a minutes notice
Lost and confused they learn to go one with life
Accomplishing goals on their own
Realizing how hard it is
To be left all alone.

Sparkling eyes and midnight lullabies cant take away the pain
And the solitude of not having mommy or daddy to
Jump and play in rain.

This life isnít easy but it gives you a power
It will help you be brave and strong
I know this time now seems dreadfully long
But someday it will be over and time will
Be lost and you will realize that they were
Heroes and they did it at nobodies cost.


pit of My stomach

by

Amber Michelle Anderson


As theshadow of the moon escapes into dawn,
I find it hard on an average day to awake myself
And face the day. The sounds of a baby crying
Motivate me just enough to roll myself out of
Bed and continue through another lonely hour.
Watching the clock as the minutes seem to
Stand still. Gazing at the tv holding on
To the hope that no bad news comes my way.
This sick feeling always hiding out in the
Pit of my stomach when the mention of
Our military men and the dangers that they
May be forced to encounter_ The day
Seems like forever and the fear hanging around
Inside me never allowing me to forget of the
Sacrifices I may someday have to take
For the freedom I endure every waking day.
For the life my husband will have to put on the line .
