"PAINTED DOLL"

You don't see the fragile child in me
washed up in ambiguity.

Is it just a deserted body there
who was once young and fair?
I was a painted porcelain doll
the cracks upon my face like scrawl. 
Whose dust collected as a cloak
unravelling around the yoke.
Poor little child, tattered and frayed

"I CAN FLY"

Oh look at those hideous, cumbersome ears
that bog down the slow moving pachyderm.

He's ridiculed and jeerded by his peers.
The little poor fellow, treated so unjust
has such an arduous journey, weighed down
that he never quite learns how to trust.
He's not like the others who move swift.
Ostracized an… Read full post »

"THE SPIRIT SOARS"

If my ankles were weighed down by granite
My mind was floating on another planet

The body was wasted and decrepit
Poor slob, you'd think I'm wretched
But one must not choose in his wisdom to ignore
The infinite ability that makes the spirit soar!
The rising, supportive hold of the mast
In fierce d… Read full post »

"HEART TO HEART"

Last night we had a heart to heart.
I was wise to realize

my role, my part
when going over everything
with a fine-tooth comb.
Things you said played in my head
once had driven me far from home.
 
It's times like these, so intense
when we search ourselves
and drop pretense
that deep… Read full post »

"IT'S ONLY A FRIEND"

It's only a friend
that will go to no end.
With a heart so sincere
tell you things about yourself
you don't want to hear.
 
I know it's not often easy
what I have to say.
I may not even go about it
the right way.
But it's only a friend
that will go to no end
just to tell you.
I got to tell… Read full post »

"UNTRIED"

Once there was a man I knew
who didn't know what he was getting into.

He lived on his imagination
and gave into every temptation.
It didn't matter who he hurt.
I guess you could say he was just a flirt.
 
You suffer no consequences,
yet high and mighty are your defenses.
You really haven't thought t… Read full post »

"Self-Pity Is Such A Curse!"

The world is full of people

 that will push you around.
So why must you always
knock yourself down?
Self-pity is such a curse!
It's only you, yourself
that makes everything worse.
Full of dread before you even begin.
Why look down on yourself,
see yourself as a has-been?
You carry a&nRead full post »

Passion Spent

Give me a reason why

I should not walk out that door.
When I ask you don't reply.
And you don't call me anymore.
Have we gone past the high
with no room left to explore?
Now you won't even try.
Looks like the end for sure.
I'm wondering if the passion's… Read full post »

"I'm a Babe In The Cradle"

Oh why oh is it myself I deny
when it is myself that I must rely?

Why do I need other peoples praise
to make it through these days?
I can't stand all alone,
too afraid of the unknown.
 
I'm a babe in the cradle.
I don't know that I'm able.
Will you rock me to sleep,
wipe these tears that… Read full post »

"WHAT IS LEFT THERE?"

I walked for miles wearing the same old shoes.
And I looked around always so confused.

I didn't know that I could pick or choose,
not until the day when I had nothing else to lose.
 
So I scream here in pain; no one else here to blame.
But what does there remain? What is left there but… Read full post »

"Do You Only Want To Survive?

Sometimes we just go along
and stay where we don't belong.

So afraid are we to change,
to ourselves we are estranged.
 
Do you only want to survive?
Not I; I want to thrive!
Mediocrity sure looks rough.
Haven't you had quite enough?
Why be barely alive?
Excel and l… Read full post »

"YOU ARE SO INTO YOURSELF"

When I think of everything I do
I think I do everything for you.

It's all for you
and no one esle.
Don't think of myself.
You think it's fair
how I'm always there?
I'm always there but you don't care!
 
You are so into yourself
there's  precious room for no one else.
You are so into yourself… Read full post »

"Floating In My Bubble"

I don't always have much to say.
I might give myself away.
Don't know just what to do
when I'm with you.
 
When I'm floating in my bubble
you can bet I won't give you much trouble.
I'm just inside myself, so mellow.
I could slip through your fingers like jello.
When I'm floating in the air
it's becaRead full post »

"MY FAITH IN MYSELF"

There's a great big rising tower
that keeps blocking my own view.
But I have the strength, the power.
These wings more than once have flew!
And if I spend every waking hour
figuring out just what to do
I won't allow that to turn me sour.
I know I'm going to see things through.
 
Don't looRead full post »

"CROSS THAT LINE"

I live in fear. I don't do all I want to.
Something holds me back all the time.
And I keep myself safe
because I never cross that line.
 
Oh, I have good intentions.
But good intentions rob me blind.
And I'll never go any further
until I learn to cross that line.
 
Is the risk that IRead full post »

"PEACE & LOVE COMBINED"

I want you to relax your mind.
Don't want you to worry so.

The day is done; you're through the grind.
Nows the time for letting go.
 
Lay back, close youre eyes, and unwind.
Nows the time to take it slow.
Put all your thoughts and fears behind.
Empty out your cup of woe.
 
Peaceful angels will caress… Read full post »

"The Only Way To Learn"

If truth be untold would it still unfold?
I think its gravity would not let it be.
You think it unfair that the truth cuts square?
I think that one so wise could fit its proper size.
Does fitting an admission alter ones disposition?
The only way to learn is for oneRead full post »

"NOTHING HERE IS ORDINARY"

Nothing here is ordinary.
All that is is quite extraordinary.

Wondrous are these things indeed!
Blowing in the wind, the tall, wild reed.
Passing overhead, a rambunctious flock.
A tiger hunts a prize on his nightly stalk.
When I look up at the stars that glisten
I think to myse… Read full post »

"UNPRETENDED"

Don't be afraid of being yourself.
I won't get offended.
When there's nobody else
and you're left unattended
turn to me; I'm your friend.
Your soul you can bare.
There's no need to pretend.
I don't easily scare.
 
Don't keep things inside.
I know your expended.
I'm here to provide.

"Are You Not Aware"

Where does truth lie
in a world so undefined?

I let out an exasperating sigh!
In your world I'm so confined.
You're a swinging door
that goes back and forth.
Yet tied tightly secure
and aptly to your berth.
 
Dare I try to budge you?
Would you move?

"THE LITTLE VOICE"

The heart is full of emotion,
the head full of reason.
But the little voice inside you
is one that is well seasoned.
 
Never a victim of passion,
needing no interpretation.
It instinctly knows what to do
in any given situation.
 
Rid your heart of sentiment,
your mind full of clutter.
Listen to yRead full post »

"I HAVE NOTHING TO MY NAME"

I have nothing to my name.
No bit o'luck to hide the shame.

No comforting word of one to find.
Only a strangle hold to surely bind.

I have nothing for I to claim.
I only have myself, my name.
And if I find myself in woe
I might find myself my foe.
 
I have nothing here to blame.
Blast myself!… Read full post »

"I'M SO AFRAID TO LOSE TIME"

I'm so afraid to lose time.
It slips through our hand

likes grains of coarse sand.
Blows away in the wind
off a salty sea shore,
and is lost forevermore.
And that is when
it turns into a memory and then
is played over and over again.
But touched with sadness
from what was bef… Read full post »

"IT'S NOT NEEDING VALIDATION"

When do feelings become so complicated?
I'm sorry but it's not something needing to be validated.

Don't try to tear down that which you don't comprehend.
Because in all honesty I have the least intention to offend.
 
If something deep inside my soul has awoken
would it be less real, wou… Read full post »
"Could a Little Gleam Be All That It Would Seem"
 
Please give me a little shimmer
for one whose lights
gone dimmer.
Could a little gleam
be all that it
would seem?
I, myself a bit artful
shall enjoy
a sprinkle of sparkle.
To set the mood just right
throw off a ray
of light.
