A Dozen Pretty Words

Forget me; forget me not. I’m standin’ my ground – yesterday’s dirt piled high. My heart beatin’ to a new tune. ‚ô¶ Pretty words by the dozen offered on a silver music sheet. Singin’ with the man on the moon, they suspect me unworthy – ah well. ‚ô¶ Pretty words dazzle in the sun, but

Beating of the Stars

Abandoned night after¬†night, weeping ¬†in your sleep. Never that far to start, I hear your sobs¬†beating on the stars. I know you can’t hear ¬†me,¬† but I love you. And, in case ¬†I never told you, I’m proud of you. Your shoulders straight;¬†your will ironclad. I know you can’t see me, but I’m here. I

Spring Cleaning

Ten years of pain hidden from the world. Invisible wounds shaping thought to alter reality. Slowly shifting, the fight undertaken to forge a new reality. Forged from old, hung behind the day to day wear РOutlived and kicked to the sidewalk. Spring cleaning underway. Grit replacing grief, stitched in anger. A cold armor shielding my heart in repair.

My name written in white – should they see,¬†hearing my cries. What

Unconvinced just yet. One cage replaced¬†by another. Where do you put the¬†hurt when you’re done?… As she lay there¬†at night, under¬†a waning moon. Wrapped inside¬†the arms of innocence.

Unsettled Dust

Her world plastered¬†with loss and loneliness. Nowhere to hide.¬†Nowhere to turn. Cruel words¬†haunting her thoughts… Too many cruel acts¬†leaving their mark. Beaten by love. Nowhere to hide. And nowhere to turn. An empty wallet¬†with nothing¬†left to give. Two little girls¬†needing shoes. Their mother needing a miracle. Her world plastered¬†with loss and loneliness. And nowhere to

Autumn’s Sword

Cloaked in darkness, a young girl stands scared and alone;¬†a lone chorus looping in triumph – “I did it. I ran away!”¬† Uprooted dreams washed away to the tone¬†of a mother’s stony voice, words soured with spite – for no one stood to nay¬†a father guarding his daughter’s honor, marching her down the aisle without
