” The Forgotten Dream” is coming!

My compilation of poems is finally coming out in print and e-book form. I have been trying to put this out for over ten years! Seems impossible but it is true. I was just publishing singles all this time. The book is in the final stages of editing so stay tuned. Subscribe to this page on the right to know right when it happens. And don’t forget to submit your own poetry for publishing on this page. We welcome all submissions.


Here is a little poem I wrote called ” One Last Dance”  I wrote it awhile ago when I was changing my life and the normal temptations we all face were trying to make a come back. The girl of course is fictional. It has proved useful to people with addictions…we all have them. It is a reminder of how we sometimes miss the very things we gave up to be better people. I hope you enjoy it.


Patrick Lee Hebert

One last dance
She always asks me
For one last dance
Not supposed to be even tempted
Can’t help the need
She always asks me anyway
Knowing I will relent
She knows her allure
Knows I am weak

Tells me she can make the pain go away
Fill all the empty little places
In my heart
In my soul
Most of the time she is right
Just a little bit
Just a taste
Just a strip tease
It is your life she says
Make what you want from it
The glory days are still here
Just dance with me one more time
You are so beautiful
To me anyway she says…

She lies

She asks me to dance in the dark with her
No-one will see
No-one will know
No-one will care

She lies
