I Envy The Woman Whose Lips

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

i envy the woman whose lips
your ample mouth has gently kissed
whose very look enslaves your soul
i ponder yet all i have missed

i envy her still whose arms
press you to her breast so tenderly
who shares your secret hopes and dreams
and keeps your fire burning steadily

i envy the woman whose bed
your long lean body slumbers in
forgive my heart's dear love desires
that which others consider a sin

i envy the woman i don't even know
who posesses what i can only desire
to be empowered by someone so fine
i envy her body her soul on fire


Flooding River

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

forbidden waters
makes one weak
a drowning man
knows no peace
flooding river
winding down
like a warden
grants no release

flooding river's
sure to take my home
leave me naked
and so alone
mean old river
so unkind
shows no mercy
leaves nothing behind

A Woman's Face Wears Many Masks

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

a woman's face wears many masks
her precious secrets to conceal
so a man may sit and ponder
if what he sees is truly real

he's a very clear-headed man
who takes his time and sets his goal
he's sure to see the masks diverge
as he taps on the door to her soul

Declaration Of Love

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

oh little trembling bee
i am finely tuned in
(to your wavelength)
and turned on by
your swaying body

thus i announce my desire
little bee my heart racing
at your name's mention
pale faced and weak in the
knees (when you're near)

i love your sweet glances
with all the chances
we are taking while trying
to disguise our inclination
toward one another

oh my little honey bee
you seem to stare so curiously
you're my soul's happiness
and it's torment supreme
oh little trembling bee-
hover over me

Yesterday's Pain

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

she stands at the window
cheek pressed to the pane
while the last trace of summer
becomes drenched in the rain

her eyes are set
in a ghastly stare
while the day wears on
but she doesn't care

there is work to be done
which she hasn't begun
and she takes a deep breath
then begins to hum

slowly the evening arrives
and trying hard not to cry
she sighs wishing
that she weren't alive

and she knows that
tomorrow will be the same
for all she can feel
is yesterday's pain

Don't Ever Say I Didn't Love You

by

Faith Elizabeth Brigham

don't ever say i didn't love you
with everything i had
of all the people in all the world
you picked me to treat bad
i wasn't the one who cheated
nor the one who always liked to fight
if you'll remember it was you
who tried to make a wrong thing right

don't ever say i didn't love you
the way that a wife should
if anything most everyone would say
i treated you too good
i wasn't in it for myself
i loved you as good as anybody could
