Silent stares, hidden touches
Your eyes on me constantly
Every moment is choreographed
Every action inevitable

Say how it will be and it will be so
I am at your mercy
Marooned without strength to resist
Pulled by your magnetism
Charmed by your presence

You speak to a part of me
I feared long departed
Awakened a sleepy yearning
For something beyond reality

A time and place that stands still
Where only you and I exist
Lost from the world
In frozen moments of rapture

I’ve found myself in you
Discovered a meaning to life
That holds all promises
Exceeds all dreams

Yet is destined to live
For only a season
Blossoming like a fall flower
And dying in the winter snow

~ Sherrie Dyer

Owner of hearts

I have lived for so long
Waiting to share my life with you
Longing to the day
We would become one

I believed your whispered confessions of love and loyalty
Yet I shy from the realisation that
Your words have been clever stories
Laced with deception and betrayal

My heart grows weary with
Every shed tear and false hope
For you cannot love
You know not how to

Your love is only that which is lustful and selfish
You toy with emotions as a destructive child
Yet weep when you acknowledge
That I am gone

I am a victim to your predatory skills
Wanting nothing more than your touch
Willing you to love me again
But I know that cannot be

You have already left me
Alone and wounded
In my own private darkness
Of despair and rage

Alone with the memories
Of what could’ve been
Alone with the damaged anger that
Slowly fuels me to awake to the present

Yes, I will not continue to retrace this cycle
But I know that you will want me again
And in this future
It will be I to tell tall tales …

~ Sherrie Dyer

Second chances

They say love comes only once
A fool-hearted tendency
They say happiness is a state of mind
But how can I agree?

For love has given me a second chance
The day I first met you
My broken heart has been healed
I feel I’ve begun anew

Who would’ve thought we would find each other
Years down the line
Just when we felt love was a myth
And we had missed all the signs!

So here we are – two hearts as one
Our lives intertwined
Loneliness and heartbreak gone
And our hopes and dreams combined

~ Sherrie Dyer


English: Love heart

I’ve fallen in love with you
Slowly day by day
I didn’t see it coming
Or that my heart had gone astray

Love is such a fickle thing
We choose not with whom we share
We only know that when it strikes
We are sometimes worse for wear

While our life journeys are apart
And our paths as east to west
Somehow our destinies collided
The reason to which I cannot contest

So now a piece of my heart is yours
To do with as you will
I only ask one thing of you
To keep a memory of me still

~ Sherrie Dyer

  • Destiny (


How can I explain to you
that time stands still
when you are not near?
My heart beats in isolation,
A lonely drum tick on a darkened stage

Each breath is a pitiful agony
Every blink everlasting torture
My thoughts are not my own
My limbs refuse to move,
Withered, brittle and frozen

I hang onto a fine thread of hope
Frailly tethered to reality
Will you return to me?
When will you be by my side?
How long my love ‘til you are mine?

I need your touch to awaken this dormancy
Your kiss to restore my subsistence
Although we are elusive strangers
You hold fortress in my very core
And I cannot live without you

Please don’t leave me in limbo
With such remorse and yearning
I stand incomplete and broken,
Aching for your acceptance,
And longing to be made whole.
