Skinned knees

At the risk of sounding foolish I needed you so much that I didn’t feel whole without you. And I hated it. I hate you for allowing yourself to be my human addiction for so long watching me clinging on to the person that you pretended to be. At the risk of sounding foolish I…

Valerie

I woke up this morning,  a goddess And on my leisurely constitutional with the wind and the road You were encountered I saw the real you, through the rags I saw the real you, through the muck and the mud And as is my nature I stooped To lift you. To love you. To put…

One Foot Out

I always leave. It’s what I am good at. He twists his mouth to say go and I was packed and out the door before his lips formed a “Guh”. Leaving. I do what I do. I’m extraordinary at exits. He isn’t even sure if that is what he wants But I will make the decision for him and Bounce….

Stop Telling Me I Am Wrong

Of all the nerve in the world. You have the audacity to think That you, of all of the creatures on the face of the rock Are the most horrid thing living under the most horrid conditions. How conceited and arrogant can you possibly be? If anything, you most certainly have a big ego And perhaps a…

Buzz Kill

Sometimes I wonder who exactly is running this little experiment… What have they done to me? Was I kidnapped and taken to a lab by moonlight Was a Pavlovian trigger implanted into my psyche in a dream state And now as a part of the research I have been asked to run to and from the…

In the meantime

While I wait… I can get myself into a shape that makes me feel and look the best I can. I can call my family members that I love just to shoot the breeze and catch up on their lives instead of being so absorbed with my own. I can buy a string of beads…

A Man

A Man. My excuses have always been about a man. The reason I haven’t reached as far as I can, I must admit has been about a man. Well, back at the beginning it was my step dad and my real dad One I didn’t see and one I wished would go to hell And…

Kane 2000

    I must admit, I loved him so hard But my devotion didn’t last very long When I started to dream about all of the stars Finding the galaxy’s end seemed better for all Sometimes we dream about things that we shouldn’t have Because the wind is not blowing the way we want it…
