believing in me

life needs to challenge me to change me

I have learned moving forward to

allow good things to happen in my life

I need to keep my faith bigger then my fear

I need to open myself to

be blessed larger then I can dream

when I could have asked for everything

I have only asked for half and gotten that

Going forward I will choose, for the better

believing in me

Metosis

Struggling to be free of me I feel my insides rip and bleed a warm river of red

Stretching beyond my former imagination death maybe not to far off

I feel loneliness creeping from inside out.

I am becoming one again by actions beyond me no matter how I struggle against this there’s no holding it in.

I should be happy to be free of madness

Intelligent enough to see logic in my body my own again

Feel joy in emotional pain ending rest

But I who crave symbiosis, now forced into transition

Birthing separation into to distinct divided beings, you and me

Stage set...... Me,  Jordan  and  Logan   on her birthday

Stage set...... Me, Jordan and Logan  on her birthday

falling feathers

if wishes were fishes my ditches would be full as they say

I'm molting again, old way falling away no way to fix

what has been made broken in the first place

but though I AM HOME and I've been the strong hold.

And I can feel forward in time to a call made too late

So I don't want to but I'm turning the light off now....

just wishing we had a moment

that our ditches were full of fishes

instead of feathers on the ground.

note
Current mood: disappointed
Category: Life

I hung on tight for dear life
Even though I'm now alone
In the very least at least I know I tried
Maybe I'm a fool and I have cried
At least I didn't give up without a fight

Do Right

Just do right

You know it by the satisfaction in your soul

Do it not for some eternal gain or external law

Just do right

It will bring you protection that nothing can steal

Living without regrets Because it is right to do

Then when you leave others will fare thee well

And send with you their prayers

Just do right Leaving things better off because you passed

It’s yours to choose because its good for you

Because it’s right to do

Be a Rainbow

 At times you may feel small and you may appear to be but,

Courage is THE virtue that without nothing else can be
so, don't be small instead,

Be a rainbow in the dark clouds

Complete universes of light peel into every color

When you wrestle with the Demons,

Laughter be your armor and love your shield maiden

and be a rainbow that says, “The rain has come and we still LIVE”

Remember me and know,

You’ve already been bought and paid for

anointed for a throne

so when the storm blows over losing its strength

Laugh rise up even higher then before


and Be a rainbow!

true love

I’m always writing poems about love
Well here’s one more only, it's about true and lasting love.
I had a pint of berries for my breakfast that
I didn’t have to go to market for,
That I didn’t have to pay for or payback for,
What’s more I didn’t ask for them

and they are my favorite foods!
A kindness extended to me of something I really need!

some one who feeds me!

… somebody raised my daughter right!

echo in my head

Silence is the loudest sound to echo in my head. One is a very lonely number, As other poets have said. I’m still tired when I wake up, and leave my empty bed. The next best rhyme to end this line is dead…. but I tell myself that all is change a journey to some end and If I keep moving it won’t remain the same.


These days I wish I wasn’t built to endure. a near miss is far worse on the heart my dear,


Wishing I didn’t care seeing through the lines on my face filled with salty tears, And hope for a change of heart to end to my fears. I pray for peace of mind but I can’t tell how I feel. It only makes things worse that I know it was a waste to try.


These days I wish I wasn’t built to endure. a near miss is far worse on the heart my dear,


I so easily misdirected mesmerized with a slight of hand by a master of the art. Controlled by my own desire of what I wanted most (such an easy mark). Fooled by smoke off a damaged soul’s pyre who felt the need to crush.


These days I wish I wasn’t built to endure. a near miss is far worse on the heart my dear,
and all along all I had was echos in my head.

fading away
Category: Life

With murder in my heart I wish death.
To carve away the excess to reveal her again, she who I ate to protect
With rhythms of the younger belly dancers jangle of hips, purple, red, gold
Veils, coins, seduction, lust has unseated me. She toys beyond my reach
Uprooted my deeply held illusion of self-beauty I became not good enough.
A fatal blow So in protest on strike I control the one thing left
my own lips
I never understood so clearly
Why cutting covers a greater wound
