Lord thank you for delivering me
a little girl trapped
in me with the yearning to be free
She wanted to be released from
her past and boundage that tried
to hold her back
The enemy planted a seed of

A Small Farewell
He hugged me tight
Wrapping his arms around me as if
To protect me, or keep me 
There as long as possible 
The car door closed suddenly
Interrupting the brief moment
Between daughter and father
But now I realize that it wasn’t 
The car door...Read More

My Dad's Birthday
My dad, who died at 55,
Is etched inside my heart,
Despite the fact it's almost
Forty years we've been apart.

Today's his birthday; had he lived,
There'd be a Carvel cake.
(One year I baked a cake from scratch,
But that was a mistake.)

Or You
A love so deep
But distant,
Enough to keep the common man away...
As well as your daughter

Your need for love so strong
Yet not,
Content to dwell in the shadows
controlling everything in the light where the others live

A puppet master hiding in the rafters
Wooden...Read More

Her father was a gardener his shoes were never clean
They were always brown and dirty…which helped his thumbs stay green.

She remembers watching him with his plants…she remembers being amused
Sometimes all she saw of him was the bottom of his shoes.

The bench where we sat and talked is still there,
and when I am missing you I go sit to weep;
"take care of my dad, God," is my prayer,
for he has left for his eternal sleep.

He listened from behind the curtain
What efforts appeal to his
need to be loved
She answered none
This to the surprise of
Those gathered
Even those in lesser
Standings have more
Appeal then he
His lessons of. Reasoning
Makes him conditioned
To appear wise
His lack of passion
Comes from his inability
To be wanted, only a foolish

Take death back
The doctor's objective

Argues and
life skills

Take death back
Death involves a loss
Essential treatment,
whatever price?
The ballad of life

Take death back
One last act
on one's existence
overwhelming
The vulnerable situation
always an uncertainty

Take death back
Life's rowing boat, without oars
Free entrance
Not today, not tomorrow
not this month

Please listen to me. 
You have not "done" anything,

You can have the last word.

THEY CALL ME WOMAN
I am nothing but a woman,
A fascinating object of intense desire,
Diligently pursued, captured, and possessed, 
And finally immured in my master’s palace;
A deeply branded slave and servant.

I am nothing but a woman,
Treading the path of my mothers and sisters,
Strictly bred...Read More
