The Ballad of Truman Brown

Near an Arkansas town lives a man, Truman Brown
in the steep Ozark hills we call home.
Lack of yield from the earth takes its toll on his psyche
and he dreams of the freedom to roam.

His kids work by his side with their mom, a sweet soul.
None suspect devil traits from his bent.
Though his anger inside swells each day like the tide,
he displays not a clue, seems content.

But his heart harbors wrath as he plows rocky land,
and parlays to destroy spirit's peace.
In the dark of his mind reason leaves, hate evolves
for the one he needs most, seeks release.

He quick-steps close behind his wife's chair and pretends
as he bends for a kiss from her lips.
He withdraws wicked blade, slits her throat ear to ear
and her blood streams below, scatters drips. 

In her panic and fear, she jumps up, tries to flee
but soon wanes, buckles down on the lawn. 
Children scream, race about, overwhelmed by the threat
and retreat behind doors, deadbolts drawn.

But her stout eldest son runs outside to her form,
cradles her in his arms as she dies.
Siblings hide from the blade daddy holds at his side;
he stands mute and stares out through dead eyes.

Dalton turns upside down in the blink of an eye
with the horror of murder so vile,
and the news people race to report sad details
as police chase him down by the mile.

On his mad day in court, all the stores close their doors
o'er the deed of this man, Truman Brown,
while the judge has him bound and declares him insane
but the tale still goes 'round Dalton town.

A Ballad of Two Hearts

T’was midnight when the gala had ended,
In a far away city that never ever sleeps,
When our two hearts first met all aflutter
A memory my heartstrings dearly keeps,
As pure innocence and heavenly beauty 
Shone blissfully upon your blushful cheeks.

O my darling, my life, my never-ending dream
And tho’ every night we lie down side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
You are a celebration of oneness bona fide
Sharing a love that takes a lifetime to express
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.

Two hearts remembering a lifetime ago,
When the stars in heaven aligned just right,
You in your velvet gown of exquisite iridescence
I in my stately tuxedo with gold so bright,
A dashing groom and blushing bride to be
Our eyes enraptured by love at first sight.

O my darling, my life, my never-ending dream
And tho’ every night we lie down side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
You are a celebration of oneness bona fide
Sharing a love that takes a lifetime to express
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.

Two hearts dreaming of a secret rendezvous 
Where love’s first stirrings had its start, 
When our two spirits shared a first hello 
Baring our souls in a little heart-to-heart, 
With love struck eyes of sweet nothings
Promising together we’d never ever part.

O my darling, my life, my never-ending dream
And tho’ every night we lie down side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
You are a celebration of oneness bona fide
Sharing a love that takes a lifetime to express
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.

Two hearts answering love’s soft whispers
In every joyful moment of love and laughter,
The caring of two hearts sharing of two souls
The pairing two lives believing in love hereafter
Tis our faithful pledge to stay forever friends
Two genteel spirits joined happily ever after.

O my darling, my life, my never-ending dream
And tho’ every night we lie down side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
You are a celebration of oneness bona fide
Sharing a love that takes a lifetime to express
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.

The ballad of the woman who didn't want to leave

There is no one to trust, 
there is no one who cares,
the pain destroying a caring woman,
and only lies, more lies and loneliness surrounded her.

He ignored her painful screams,
he kept hurting her without regret,
he hijacked her dreams and happiness,
and now he states she is unstable.

She is losing hope,
the only little golden thread,
that made her float.

She is falling in the abyss.
She hears the voices kicking her,
wound after wound.
It is never going to heal.

Cut the pain,
cute the pain.
She has no control over her happiness and life,
but she has control over her death.
Cut the pain,
make it stop.
