Bad manners are not an excuse!

I love watching you sleep;your beautiful lioness mane around you,clutching Puffalball into your chest,your life-size bear pushing you off your bed. My absolute perfect creation;I baked you well,your uncle used to say! At times I worry about the world I’ll be releasing you into,hoping it won’t be cruel…then I remember that I’ve given you tools;think…

Embody The Silence

Embody the silence, Expand the chest; 3… 2… 1… and… exxhhaalle… The sharpest edges of pain have turned dull, Breathe in; 3… 2… 1… Exxhhaalle… It’s so hard to write when there’s no pain, Just silence to fill time. Mushy brain, Can’t remember anything! There’s no need, Breathe in; 3… 2… 1… Exxhhaalle… The once…

Contrived to Write!

It seems that this very 1st day of 2018 has contrived to force my fingers into the internal promise I made to write more this year. It’s like that gym membership that you proudly and eagerly purchase for yourself and cannot wait to begin but when the day actually comes you find every excuse to…

Please, Just One More Day

Loving you was all consuming, Feeling like I couldn’t breathe; I forged forward, Despite your nonchalant care! Until I just couldn’t… The image of you sneaking in at night, Waking from deep sleep to wrap my arms around you, Breathing you in! Our fingers interlaced under my pillow, Your warm body molding around mine. I…

I wasn’t ready…

They say time heals all. Who are ‘They”? and how do “They” know? The beautiful walls of paradise are cracking The voices, carried by the wind, get closer. What have you done? What will you do? Handfulls of hair fall The tears won’t stop! I did this!! NO!!! It was actually YOU! I loved you…

Hollow Pain

Dutiful responsibilities squared away. Searching but not looking, Slow death please go away! Pushing to punch, Looking to improve, But the hollowness lingers. Everything is so great! Yet in the darkness, Hollowness creeps and takes hold. Smile turned on, So hard to strive. Can’t cry, Is it not strength? Hollowness you won’t win!

Thank You For Being Mine

This huge mysterious world has me mesmerized. My baby now my size! Stealing and ripping my clothes, Running with my heart on her sleeve. A distant unexpected friendship renewed, Suddenly empowered through a screen of words. The world spins, I’m standing alone but not lonely, Content and managing. They have good souls, Through struggles I…

Stupid Feelings!

This stupid feeling! Why won’t it just leave me alone?! The ball in my throat beckons a cry, But for what? There’s nothing to say, Hanging on words and waiting, Is just not my way. It was great! A dream worth waiting for, But it’s creeping away. Helplessly I just sit and wait. Emotional Intelligence,…

To Her You’re Wonder Woman

Sometimes the world is cruel, You struggle and bleed to breathe. On Your knees; Pleading with your legs to stand. Then an angel forms within you, Her birth changes your life. She cries when you’re far, And fills every crevice with love. Her words bring the joyful tears You never thought you had. Her little…

Distance On Special Days

I cry when I hear daddy songs, Because we had it! It was so good, I absolutely adored you. Now looking back; I am so sad. Would you take it back? That night when my world fell apart? You lay on the floor and I woke with a confused smile… No longer daddy’s little girl….
