"They'd Be In Heaven"

I know if they could see,
look at things differently
they might believe in me.
If they could see
beyond the sky
they'd never ask why.
They'd be in heaven.
I know if they could hear,
become aware
they'd know that I am there.
If they could hear
what's very near
they'd never fear.
They'd be in heaven.

"It's YOU"

It's like searching the deep blue sea,
the lights on a bright marquee.
It's like climbing the higest mountain,
dancing waters from a high mouth fountain.
It's like walking miles in the desert sand,
as loud as a trumpet in a big brass band.
It's like reaching out to touch a full moon,
so intoRead full post »

"I See It As a Butterfly"

Some folks thought it best to describe it
what was the magic, the allure?
But even the best of wit
could never quite be sure.
It could not be bound by words,
a mystery that lies in dreams.
It's free and soars like a flock of birds,
flows as blue mountain streams.
Many scholars and poetRead full post »

I thought of going to the store.
Was going to buy a card for you.

And then I thought whatever for?
No one could come up with the words for you.
Not that I would want to be a bore,
I thought that I could best define you.
But as I thought about it more
I realized there is no… Read full post »

"Coins In a Fountain"

If days were coins in life's fountain
the first thing that I'd want to do
is to collect all the discarded ones.
And then I would give them to you.
Nickel and copper used for wishes
don't really make dreams come true.
But they're thrown with great care
in hopes that some day they do.

"It's All There In You"

Only you can make things happen!
Don't look at others to know what to do.

It might not seem clear which way to steer.
But the answers all lie there in you!
People keep searching for meaning,
not even knowing what's true.
Tap deep inside; awaken what's died.
You'll realize it's all… Read full post »

Be careful what you hunger for.
When wolves go scavenging for more
it leaves them blood thirsty,
heaving, winded, pursy.
Seething, rapacious devil eyes
wanting the world know not of compromise.
Lying in their own waste
their soul, their inner core, debased.
Their wanting never satiates their hunger,

"A New Way"

It's not your fault now baby.
You only know what you know.
I can't take that away.
But there comes a time now baby
when all that you've learned
just doesn't make sense today.
You need to find a new way.
A new way.
Yesterdays sorrow baby, left you in pain.
You couldn't feel the sun.
When you're stuck… Read full post »

"The Tortious & The Hare"

You're the tortious; I'm the hare.
What an odd kind of pair.

A tortious and a hare!
You're gainly slow; I just want to fly.
You're feet stuck to ground.
My head's up in the sky.
You're thoughts have such precision,
while I do things in haste.
To me it's your indecision,
to you it's only wa… Read full post »

I'd rather die in the wrath of love
than be a closed seed bud

in fear that it may bloom
then surely it shall die.
But die it shall die divine!
Petals spead and fragrance fine.
If living tightly closed, obscured
brings to it life, a life secured
what is that life to be?
Not felt, not seen, not free.

"I Believe In Believing"

I believe in believing,
and trying more and more.

I'll never end up leaving
just because of a closed door.
Closed doors can be deceiving!
That's what knobs are for.
I wonder what's inside?
If it doesn't open easy
the hinges can be pried!
It might make things uneasy.
But what's narrow can b… Read full post »

"Turning Inside/Out"

Slow down your mind; it's racing ahead again.
Like a umbrella that stays open and then collapses 

from a torrid gust of wind.
It's shape it can not hold, often turning inside/out.
Acting like a funnel, narrow at the bottom
no longer like a bats forelimbs spreading eagle out.

"At Least I Know I Tried"

You can take away my dignity,
strip me of my pride.
Even though there's no prosperity
at least I know I tried.

When nothing's in my favor,
over and over I've been denied
I have this much to savor
at least I know I tried.

When the odds are stacked against me
I let my conscience be my guide.

Will these arms fall off
with no one to hold them up?

There's no handle on my cup.
I'm going mad.
Will these lips crack, dry and chap
with not a kiss for them?
The tongue stays idle, still. It doesn't lap.
I'm going mad.
Will these eyes be able to see
with the welling of the tear ducts

"I See Only Love"

You two are not the traditional couple.
You are not what people envision
as a married couple.
Yet the two of you are the epitome of love.
There is no right way or wrong way to love.
There is just love.
When I look at both of you I see only that.
I see only love. Read full post »

"I'm Not One Of The Regulars"

I'm not one of the regulars.
I don't think the same.
They see the world in colors.
I see the world in black and white.
I'm not one of the regulars.
I don't read the same.
They see words in order.
I'm dyslexia. The words come out
I'm not one of the regulars.
I don't love the same.

I don't know how to get you out from under.
You're locked away and thrown away the key.

Sitting in a basement below the stairway,
dusting off the cobwebs of a midnight summer's dream.
It's dark and dank and musty in the cellar.
The little boy is huddled, shaking by the door.
With only his own arms for… Read full post »

"The Rainbow Am I"

I think that I'm an optical phenomenon
by my reflections.

I always seem to be changing my own hue.
I can be flaming mad red like a fire breathing dragon
and the next moment sunkissed and happy like
a juicy Florida orange too.
When I'm tired and upset by life
I become quite sallow, jaundice

"Do No Harm"

When you enter my house
Do No Harm
Don't bring these feelings upon yourself
Do No Harm
When the voices in your head scream and shout
Do No Harm
You have not come here to feed yourself
Do No Harm
You were put here to protect someone else
Do No harm
Lives are at stake
Do No Harm
It's the Hippocratic OathRead full post »

"He Loves Me Not"

He loves me not.
He love me.

He loves me not.
I'm picking daisies
but it's not spring.
I'm growing crazy.
To him I'm just a plaything.
He loves me not.
He loves me.
He loves me not.
Pulling on each petal,
soon the flower's bare.
His heart is made of metal.
He plain just does not care!
He loves me not.
He loves me.

"Not a Thing"

I'm an empty tea cup sitting in a saucer.
A fragile piece of china without a hanlde
on a thing.
I'm quite sure I'd be fragrant as jasmine blossoms
in my tea cup
if someone poured some warm water
in the thing.
Baby drops of golden sunshine honey
could swirl around like clover
blowing in the spring.
But nothinRead full post »

She did have a name.
Maybe you knew it.
She did have a voice.
Maybe you didn't hear it.
Was she lost in the sea of papers
on your desk?
Was she lost in the crowd.
Her sins she confessed.
But they fell on deaf ears.
And what of these words
that she solemnly professed?
Are they stuck in space?
She was such… Read full post »

The water colored roses melt away
in the next rain.
The crimson red exposes
all the blood and frozen pain.
Close the window to the pelting
of the rain upon the glass.
Even so, it's so insulting
and you think of it quite crass.
Ephemeral in the passing,
fleeting as the night.
Feral and woRead full post »

"Safe & Sound"

Why don't you question anything?
Are you afraid to take a chance?

Afraid of what tomorrow may bring?
Always needing to know in advance.
Instead of sitting it out
Why don't you take a different stance?
All the things you planned ahead
gave you a facde of feeling secure.

"Well Earned, Well Lived"

Father, I see myself reflected in you.
You made me into the man I am.
I have overcome many of the obstacles

in my life because of your faith in me,
and your guidance.
You have shown me the softer side of life.
A life of love and care and kindness.
I could not be who I am today without you.
