the drips from the plastered shield above echoed loud into buckets like rainthe growls of the children roared to be silenced with crumbs from the grainsthe shallowness of the starving piggy was burning a holethe collection of bills and lack thereof bucks smelled like pennies that stank from the coins they had rolledtheir knees theyContinue reading “Empty Pockets”
Her skin but a carpet for others to stompHer heart but a slinky, a toy or a topHer soul is not seenHer cries go unheardHer feelings are said, but they don’t speak a word.Her skin it now boilsHer heart simply poundsHer soul it is shatteredHer cries are pronounced.Her feelings are hurt as she crumbles insideHerContinue reading “FINDING HERSELF”
Dear diary,Don’t read my wordsThe crap I writeIs quite absurdMy trembling handsCan’t grasp the penCannot controlWho, what, where, whenThe ink I splashAre only thoughtsOf things I thinkI need to jotWhich is a blurJust turn the pageThe yellow shadesShow that I’ve agedMy i’s have dots above the t’sThe f’s exclaimed were not from me 😉
You lost you and left me, but have led me to find,That the person I’ve made does not make you mine; You are you without me, I am me without you, You finding yourself, does not mean that I lose; I will still be around when your you becomes found, We may be apart, butContinue reading “Flying Free”
no child a burden, no parent so good. would have given it all, but…we did what we could. no money or fortune, no mansion or luck. we have given it all, and…had only a buck.
Driving by in the road with emotions afloatDown the path up ahead Don’t know which way to go. Tucked well past the sign behind unpatched potholesThree horses of shadesThat aligned the meadow. Near enough to be loved, but too far to be touchedNestled one on the otherNeighbored close like a crutch. Their beauty a sceneContinue reading “Remember That Ride”
My all is your nothing My best is your worse Your you is my blessing My me is your curse. One day they will know That your you was not there They will see what I had Was not ours to share.
The spit of life has split us up;We sipped the shit right out that cup. Bottoms up and both let down;Dirt disguised as coffee grounds;Perhaps the tea cannot be stirred;The drink instead creates a word. A letter dropped to form a noun;In liquid form to screw around;The “tea” it eats the “f” in fear;The hollowContinue reading “The Tea In Tears”
If coins turn to bills,I will travel the world.I will touch other earth;Change my dirt into pearls. I’d step off of this land,And set foot in a plane.I would roll in your grass,And I’d dance in your rain.
I stumbled into bad choices, dead ends and wrong turns;Every blister and ouch was a lesson I learned.I grappled to people like flies to manure;Every love in my way was untrue and unpure.I tended the fire, but then I got burned;Every story of mine is a badge that I earned.I am who I am fromContinue reading “Burning Crossroads”
Blindly peeking through panesof houses aligned;in search of your losses and founds you might find.They have what is theirs and what’s yours is your own;not so great and not grand,still a place to call home. The meaning you seekis the value within;untucked behind curtains and walls paper thin.The gold in their groutand the rich inContinue reading “Window Pain”
May all of this make no sense to me; may it teach, may it show what’s to see. I will learn, I will grow, I will be the one that will be the new me. It can come, It might stay, It may go. It will be a new lesson to know.
He silently whispers that he has to escape; Summoning the guardians above — words of hope; Begs for the clutter to vanish, to finally feel enraptured by life. Clarity distinctively appears out of reach; He grasps onto the olive branch as it abruptly disintegrates; Attempting to cling to any sign of his existence; Praying toContinue reading “Guardian Angels”
Does not turn the page in a heartbeat; Does not treat you like you do not count; Does not trick you into doing things; Does not twist your world upside down. Does not trip you on your way; Does not tear at your goals; Does not tamper with your feelings; Does not torment your soul.Continue reading “Love…”
Her beauty captivates the room like the blooms in an ethereal garden. The intricate sway in her stance invites petals and stems to a dance. The pastel shades embrace her cheeks, the pearls and the lace glorify her body and face, as she lightly caresses the floor underneath her delicate feet. Angelic she seems, asContinue reading “Blooming Pearls”
My story is not to be heard. It cannot be a phrase made of words. The stuff I have seen can’t be viewed on a screen; cause the image would just be a blur. My life was not printed on scroll. I was unfairly placed in this role. The crowd they applaud, and the curtainContinue reading “Curtain Call”
butterfly, pause this chaos for me; be the smell of the rose in the weeds. your intricate flight, and its precious delight, flutter the petals in me. butterfly, take every worry away; be the brightness I need every day. your delicate shades, and their loving embrace, fill my heart that lays well-tucked away. butterfly, findContinue reading “Bring Brightness”
