An Insignificant Life - collaboration with The Seeker
absence, break up, divorce,
That godless sound
His head explodes at 6:01am
Same as every day
He falls out of bed
Steps on the cat
Slides into his slippers
Shuffles to the kitchen
Puts the coffee...
Can We Be Strangers
the holes in the walls are all patched
and the plaster is dry
the broken glass is swept away
or turned to sand
I only want that when I...
It Only Hurts When I Smile
break up, cry, divorce,
I put a smile on my face when I go outside
My friends all see the pain I try to hide in my eyes
Prophecy of Sand
dedication, divorce, history,
Men, they say
We have been subjugated by their culture and rules
The norms and the religions of masculine fools
The laws and the clowns
The world one day...
How much do I love thee
betrayal, divorce, freedom, money,
How much do I love thee
Let me tabulate all the ways
I bought you a new Mercedes
With gold plated tire rims
I bought you a humongous diamond...
Unfinished Love Affair
divorce, hurt, repetition, romance,
Unfinished Love Affair
It's been so long since I've seen you.
Don't know how or why you remain,
At the forefront of my memory,
But you do and will always remain.
Time has passed, and...
divorce, flower, heartbreak, love,
You made me love yellow flowers
in the middle of July,
when everything was dying
because the ground was so dry.
You offered them to me
with the faintest smile...
For Two Timing Husbands
divorce, anger, betrayal, break up,
How many tears must fall from brown eyes before I lay me down to sleep.
Where hurtful dreams of betrayal and lies hide in shadows they...
Say goodbye to Mom
angst, child, divorce, parents,
Holding head down he simmers in anguish
Scribbling restless shapes in red crayon
Concealing bitterness of a child forlorn.
At a tender young age he knows of divorce
You Say You Love Me
addiction, conflict, divorce, drug,
You say you love me but you’re not
You say you’re going to fight and give it all you got
You say you find it hard to...
It Dawns on Me
I wake up next to no one right at dawn
to check for late night texts that don't exist
The paperboy throws news toward the lawn
I Just Don't Understand It
break up, divorce, emotions,
And I know you didn't plan it
it's so hard for us to understand it
I love you, I hate you - I just don't understand it
Field of Forever
divorce, love, marriage,
Snow crested range backdrop, gurgling creek allurement
At long last was the field, ours its loamy splendor
Our fertile paradise beneath stars and thunder
Within this promise, we...
Love once was the focus
of our lives
till marriage became contentious;
two sharp knives
piercing the heart of it,
Teamed hardhearted misfits
by nature, antipathetic
where love’s the casualty

divorce, freedom, funeral, funny,
He had a few drinks the night before,
enough to mistake the waiter for a door.
T'would help him remember
he thought to himself,
the fun to be had...
break up, conflict, divorce,
Between yesterday's coffee and today's newspaper delivery,
we somehow lost our sweetness, now you are just a memory.
A bloody Rose
divorce, allusion, anger, baby, beautiful,
Roses here, Roses there,
bloody roses everywhere.
February brings them to our life,
while others hide a broken wife.
Young girls dream of their shining white knight,
when do you...
break up, divorce,
Velcro ripped and soda fizz
Velvet crushed Moroccan night
Nocturnal buterflies those flickering fireflies
Our winking spies like circling satelites
Coming together , we fissures of light
Delicious refrain ...

Many families are being destroyed by sexual addictions!
As they bring into their homes unneeded afflictions!

divorce, angst, anti bullying, anxiety,
You must be in so much pain to be considering this.
The hurt, the misery, the anguish, the agony;

Unfortunate circumstances made me a weekend father
Two parents separated by a marred history,

On My Knees
divorce, anxiety, break up, conflict,
Silently, a teardrop streaks
And falls on her suitcase
Quietly, I turn to see
A broken heart, there on her face
Patiently, she looks at me
As if she needs...

When I am wise, I’ll turn to puppy love
With generous doses of truth and innocence, almost no shame …
