Egg Shells

No more walking on egg shells
or stroking one mans pride

My wounded heart is open now
and at last so are my eyes

No more empty conversations
pro claiming he's the best

If truth be known his actions shown
He's just like all the rest

There is so much to be thankful for
I'm healing from the fall

But he's the one who's suffering
He could have had it all...

Surfer chick


He never stopped preaching
About the color of my hair
So I kept right on bleaching
and now there's nothing there

Maybe in time

  

holding back the tears

reading an old love letter

it made me smile then

perhaps i should wait longer

they say that "time heals all wounds"...

Face to Face



Face to face at last

Perpetual gaze is held

No words are spoken

Hands reaching out with purpose

You grab the last cookie first

A New Day

    



Away all sorrow

   Move swiftly into the past

      Today's a new day

        Wanting only happiness

            Tomorrow is further still...

A wall between




Loves call awaits me

    Or perhaps it is knocking

        What if I answer

            Once opened finding no one 

                Only a wall between us

No Goodbye


    All the people gone

        not wanting to say goodbye

            next to you i sit

                frozen unable to weep

                    the earth falls from my small hand...

Springs lullaby





Spring skipping past Winter blows a kiss

Frost gives way to lush green carpet

Old twigs become new houses

Robin eggs match the sky 

Winters forgotten 

Springs lullaby

Welcome life

A new

day

Swinging on a star


of all love spoken

  his words to me said it best

    for "eternity"

      love you more then there are stars

        a timeless and countless love...

Choices


an angel or devil
which one will it be
the emotions run rampant
and twisted in me

try as i may to reach
out in the night
whilst darkness and demons
they answer my plight

i long for the daylight
to awaken my slumber
with songs sun by nature
to quiet nights thunder

the blue skies and sunshine
they heal my soul
i walk though the fields
on up to the knoll

here i feel closer to
heaven at best
i finally may sit here
for one moments rest

for good and the evil
both choices i see
the light will keep shining
down deep within me...
