Maria Shaw Poems
Heart Of Ice.
Her beauty was second to none like a butterfly she flitted by as man with a net did chase hoping to capture her heart.
Gorillas In The Mist.
She lived in the mountains wild and free with her closest friends and family she ate from the land, she reared her young, life was bliss until man came along.
Governments shake bloodied hands keeping the people under command the more they protest the worse it gets and then they call it civil unrest.
A Day In Paradise.
I tasted paradise sweet nectar of life I ate of the fruits
War Is A Game Of Chess.
The queen, the bishops, rooks, knights and pawns, all protecting the king on the board who protects the pawns?
A Brand New Start.
'What do you want to eat' he said I saw the dark glint in his eyes I knew whatever the choice I made would be wrong and would cause a fight.
Jealousy completely overwhelmed me I drove love away in awe of my constant insecurity. I loved too deeply, I clung too tight,
Gypsy eyes hypnotize I drown in oceans sea lured to forbidden places my heart, my soul so weak.
I Have A Dream.
I have a dream of freedom, peace, equality, where man will love his neighbor sharing land
Love Is Unity
I breathe in your heavenly scent water turns to wine blossom falls at your feet as the wind blows your heart to mine.
This Kiss Is Bliss
This kiss is bliss passion erupts from my soul making me whole
Tender lips kiss my brow
This prison I live in four walls no doors.
'Sitting Bull' Lakota Chief.
Sitting Bull stood his ground he refused to sell his sacred land. Respected by his people
Heart Of Ice.
Her beauty was second to none
like a butterfly she flitted by
as man with a net did chase
hoping to capture her heart.
How she teased
she bought men to their knees
her heart of ice
none could thaw.
She hid behind the tallest walls
none could tear them down
many tried but failed
her heart of stone, imprisoned, alone.
How she longed for love
for someone to love who she was
but barriers were high
she needed much more than lustful eyes.
No one took the time to know her
men showered her with gifts ...
