"A Rose Not Yet Abloom"

Why don't we presume
that our love is just a rose

not yet abloom?
Every flower blossoms
in their own time.
Watching them grow
is so sublime.
Beauty happens carefully;
so patiently we must wait.
If I get a little bent
You'll put me back up straight.
Life seldom forewarns
You could get cuRead full post »

"Take It While You Can"

I never regret giving my love to anyone.
It's free.
I love laying around in the sun.
It's free.
So this is life; take it while you can.
In time you'll learn, come to understand.
I could run naked without my clothes.
It's free.
I don't need any cover-ups; I suppose.
I'll just be me.
So thiRead full post »

"She's My Anchor; She's My Sister"

There is strength in another.
Let us have faith in each other.

Together is where we are stronger.
Let us not be alone any longer.
When people stand together
In unity they can weather
The mountain that they are climbing.
Any storm that they are finding.
Oh proudly we all hail!
We are each others mast… Read full post »

"No More Chewing On the Pain"

Holding tightly to the pain.
Black, a cloak that shall remain.

Building up plaque upon your heart.
When enough of it then grows
You've got a big wide gaping hole.
The abscess won't leave you alone.
It travels fast right to the bone.
As it wildly spreads.
Leaving you wishing yo… Read full post »

"Sweet Serendipity"

Something happened
Oh sweet serendipity
It caught me by surprise.
Never to realize.
Didn't know this feeling before.
Something new to explore.
Whatever's inside of me
Just won't let me be
Oh sweet serendipity
It's not something to happen
Oh sweet serendipity
Maybe it wRead full post »

"You Can Call On Me"

When the world comes crashing down
Heavy as a boulder

When you feel like you've been thrown in
Ready to drown
You're gettting that much older
You can call on me
I'll lift the weight
off your shoulders
When you're yearning to break free
Of the binds that ties you
When those long, lonely nights
Won't let yo… Read full post »

I don't need reminders
Of who you really are
This is our life
The life that we've lived so far
The one
The one that you carve
And I know in the future if I stay
that I'm going to starve!
You only give half
Half of yourself
Doesn't leave much room
For anything else
Half of nothing
LeaveRead full post »

"The Artificial High"

Trinkets that sparkle
and shine.
Rose' and sparkling
white wine.
On a hard day
some heavy liquor.
Don't drink enough
to get you sicker!
Oh the things that you do 
just to get by.
This is what's called 
the artificial high.
What joy in the moment
they bring
Until you toss them

"You'll Never Find Your Way"

Like a horny toad
Looking down an empty road

You'll never find your way
You're no prince in a ballet
Hopping to and fro
Always on the go
You'll never find your way
Like a circus clown
I know you get around
You'll never find your way
All you do is wanna play
Smiling here there
Doling out your chee… Read full post »

"Thrown Into The Big Wide Open"

I was to him some token.
Not more than something to use.

Thrown into the the big wide open.
I only stand to lose.
For a little girl outspoken
I didn't seem to have a clue.
Thrown into the big wide open.
Don't know just what to do.
I thought that he was just joking
when he turned and walked… Read full post »

"You've Got Much More To Learn"

If you're spinning webs
you'll only catch flies.
If you make-believe
you're only telling lies.
With your head stuffed
in a cloud
your voice don't come out

If you're turning wheels
don't turn them on ideals.
If your weeds are overgrown
don't sit there and bemoan.
When your mind gets
your mood is

It's not being a quitter to face an end.
It's taking refuge in it my friend.

It's the letting go that is brave.
It's realizing what you can't save.

Sometimes that wind just has to blow
Sometimes that sky just has to snow
Sometimes in life you come to know.
Sometimes the hardest part is letting go.… Read full post »

"These Walls"

I thought my home was a courtyard,
surrounded by walls enclosing me in.

Each parent in his own tower, the guard.
Watching over these walls of Berlin.

To many it looked like a Garden of Eden.
But I had not the choice or the freedom.
What's it like on the inside of paradise?
Thes… Read full post »

"And It Keeps Going On And On"

Sitting in a crowded restaurant
she seems miles away.
You ask her what's wrong.
But she has nothing to say.
You can't see the light in hers gone.
Somebody blew it away.
She's drinking down every wrong.
And it keeps going on and on.

You can sweep it all under the rug.
But the pile's getting biRead full post »

"Reluctance Has No Substance"

If you don't stoke the fire
the flames won't get much higher.

In fact they'll burn out.
Seeds you planted won't sprout.
I must say that reluctance
really has no subtsance.
You can't go much distance
when you have resistance.
You'll never get very far
staying where you are!
I must say that reluctance… Read full post »

"The Devil Of Yourself"

You hide behind the mask
that you have made.
What a charade!
I believe I chose to
gallantly expose you.
With clever eyes,
I see through your disguise.
So you fight me to break free
from all there is that I see.
So chagrin.
I know where you have been.
I cut deep into the depths of you.
You're not bleedRead full post »

"Just An Ordinary Girl"

I offered you my world.
I'm just a very ordinary girl.
I offered you my world.
But you wouldn't take the chance.
You blamed it all on the circumstance.
I'm not as successful as the others were before.
If you measured success in love
I'd give you that much more.
Just a very ordinary girl.
Whose life unfRead full post »

Lost inside myself
Always wished that I
Was someone else
Now that the walls
Are caving in
I'm imploding
Beneath my skin
I'm dying deep inside
Split in two
I divide
Half of me is
A tortured soul
The other half
hasn't an ounce of control
In separate parts
Can't put back

"An Image Of Someone Else"

Do you feel so helpless
like a king without his throne?

Are you completely loveless
like a house that's not a home?
Is everything revolving
while you are standing still?
Have you the spirit
but lacking any of the will?
Do you ever feel so lonely
like you're your only friend?
And the time is all but… Read full post »

"Will You Completely Waste It?"

All that you have is this moment.
What will you do with your life?

Will you completely waste it?
On struggles, and conflicts and strife?
None of us are promised tomorrow.
We only have here and today.
Will you completely waste it?
You can't get it back once it's taken away.
And what of t… Read full post »

Free As A Butterfly"

For those of you who pass too soon
Free as a butterfly breaking out of the cocoon

You've been feeling such wrenching pain
That one so human could not sustain
You leave us with honor and grace
When death has kissed your blessed face
And God grant us to be as strong
As you dear so soul wer… Read full post »

"When There's Little Relief"

When there's little relief
and the calm is too brief

I float outside my head to find
some lost fragment of my mind.
If you looked at me could you tell
I'm not doing too well?
What's bounded up and chained inside
has taken every step out of my stride.
When there's little r… Read full post »

"Look Inside The Tinted Glass"

Hear the lions mighty roar!
Waves come crashing to the shore.

Your hand's in a fisted glove.
Where's the peace sign of the dove?
Shall I rise to meet a scorching sun?
Or burn my feet on the sand and run?
You don't know how hard I tried
To pull the thorn out of your side.
I'm aching from… Read full post »

"When Are Things Going To Ge Better?"

I can't sit with this apprehension.
There's all this growing tension.
I can't seem to unwind.
Everything here is so maligned.
When are things going to get better?
The sun is out but I'm getting wetter.
I  just drown in my own tears.
I already wasted too many years.
It seems like I'm goRead full post »

"I'm Just Bringing To You Myself"

In this life sometimes you can't see
just what you're meant to be.
When I look deep inside a reflective glass
It's myself I have to ask.
When will I take off the worn out mask?
I'm just bringing to you myself.
This time not hiding behind nothing else.
I got so lostRead full post »
