We Are The GirlsWe can be flirty, and we can be sweet,
Long loopy curls and bows in our hair.
Our rooms are pretty, but never quite neat.
We're too busy dreaming of love in the air.
We paint our faces from pots of makeup,
Eyes in blue shadow with long green lashes.
We like to pretend and love to play dress up,
Always a favorite are gowns with big sashes.
We put on high heels, so we can look tall,
And love to go dancing in dresses that swirl.
Don't ever dismiss us, we won't be made small.
We can do cartwheels and make batons twirl.
We believe in fantasy as we wait for our prince,
Like little purple fairies with incandescent wings.
He'll arrive like in the movies; it will be a cinch.
We dream of white horses and bejeweled rings.
At school, we are found roaming the halls,
Fighting off suitors from geeks to playboys.
We like sappy movies and walking the malls,
Looking for bargains, or shopping for boys.
We love anything shiny that catches our eye,
Drawn to what sparkles or is doused in glitter.
CrossroadsThe days go on and still I wait,
You are too busy for us to meet.
With your wealth and looks as bait,
You plan your life all nice and neat.
You say you are incapable of love,
But I will love it when you use me.
In your world, I will be held above,
Do you say this to confuse me?
I would be your trusted friend,
Today, forever, and always.
That I care not I must pretend.
While in secret, our passions blaze.
Yet in your world, I am quite bored.
You leave me here too often alone.
If I want you, this must be endured,
Waiting for mere crumbs you've thrown.
You will surely take good care of me,
And to only you, I must commit.
You come and go, for you are free.
As for me, more rules you omit.
Your words to me are truthless,
For I've been here far too long.
At times, you're cold and ruthless,
You make me feel like I do not belong.
So I stand where the crossroads part,
Torn between desire and lack of trust.
To leave you, will clearly break my heart,
Though if I stay, then it might as well rust.
Missing AutumnThe leaves start falling to the ground,
In colors of gold, red, orange, and brown.
Where you walk, there's a crunching sound.
Bring along a sweater, if you go into town.
Fall vegetables are at the farm stand,
Along with apples and pumpkins for pies.
We can go hiking across this great land,
And catch sunsets of violets in the skies.
Inside the fireplace, a log is glowing,
To warm chilly fingers and faces.
In large mugs, hot chocolate is flowing,
As we undo our bootstraps and laces.
Now, these are the things I remember,
Of years gone, as I'm missing Autumn.
For time has moved beyond September,
And with sweet nostalgia, I am overcome.
But here too, the kids are back in school,
And the tourists have mostly gone home.
To be anywhere else, I would be a fool,
For again, it's my playground to roam.
So I look up to the sky and feel the sun,
Its soothing warmth I will always embrace.
As I stroll down my beach having fun,
The Fall I might miss, but I love this place.

BorderlinesWhy can't things just flow easy and free?
No more guessing what's the next game.
You're playfully loving, then not quite nasty.
Do you confuse me with another one's name?
Clearly you are hiding your damaged goods,
Remnants of a bruised and broken heart.
Fearful like a child who is lost in the woods,
This is not a good way for love to start.
Then the days of lighter moments in time,
When with our words, a deeper trust impart.
It is then it happens without reason or rhyme,
I catch an honest glimpse into your heart.
Gone is the fear or the need to impress,
The man that I want is speaking to me.
We tell our dreams and our secrets confess,
Holding onto a vision of what love could be.
I can always tell when it has frightened you.
It has become easy to see the telltale signs.
You can hide, but the truth it cannot undo,
I know when we've crossed your borderlines.
You can deny yourself, get lost in your work.
Your need for control requires so much trust.
Ever evasive, your desire for love you s
GrandsonIn you, I can see sometimes,
The glint in the eyes of my Dad.
Reminding me of happy times,
And the childhood that I had.
Smart, strong, yet oh so sweet,
A rascal like my own son.
Quick witted and fast on your feet,
Surely, my heart you have won.
We are kindred spirits you and I,
Driven by what's in our hearts.
With an energetic love of freedom,
Life's gifts, and passion for the arts.
Sometimes you are the little boy,
"Gram, rub my head while I sleep."
Yet with those who try to rob your joy,
You see things so sharply and deep.
To say you make me proud as can be,
Well, it barely scratches the surface.
As the happiness you bring to me,
When I see your dear smiling face.
That you are loved, I hope you know.
To my heart, you'll always hold the key.
So strive, stay strong, and grow,
For you are part of my legacy.

HypnoticI gaze into your eyes of blue.
Finding them to be so hypnotic.
I'm not sure what to make of you,
As I read your words so cryptic.
Looking now at your pictures too,
I wonder why it is you never smile.
I think that maybe I can fix you,
Although it will surely take a while.
Thinking that I should know better.
Do I run now, or take a chance?
Your hold on me is like a fetter,
Restraints of love's sweet trance.
So deeper and deeper I now fall,
Clinging to my freedom's breath.
Will it be on my knees I'll crawl,
To arrive at love's summit or death?
If I feel anything, it is not fear.
I'm lost in an excited state of bliss.
Longing to feel you raw and near.
Hypnotize me with your wanton kiss.
So inhale now and deeply breathe.
For you've set the stage so well.
Emotions from everywhere now seethe,
With passion like the fires from hell.

StalemateWe're caught in a stalemate,
Which move will we chose?
Stay away, or take a step,
We've nothing left to lose.
We can just keep looking,
But you know it's all the same.
Close your eyes, you feel me.
In dreams, you call my name.
Neither wants this emptiness,
Nor ending with this fight.
Come be with me now,
Bring me back the night.
You've drawn me in before.
Please don't shut me out.
I needed time to trust you.
I have no cause for doubt.
Let's see where this takes us.
We'll go there hand in hand.
But nothing will become of us,
If steadfast we must stand.
Open up your eyes now,
Along with your closed heart.
We'll stake a claim in us.
It's not our time to part.

It's a DateIs there anyone that's out there?
As I wade through many profiles.
Darks, gingers, blonds, or no hair.
Sketchy winks, and painted-on smiles.
Doesn't matter what the color,
Short ones, tall ones, slim and stout.
Who's going to be the lucky fella?
Give them a chance to take you out.
Hey, maybe I can be your match,
Says the guy who looks like Santa.
Trust me, I am quite the catch,
Witty repartee and banter.
Some look for replacements,
As they're bashing on their ex.
Don't show me your basements,
I don't need your parts on text.
Some might even be so brave,
Ranging from twenty to over fifty.
Asking what it is that you crave,
Let's go Dutch, I'm a little thrifty.
Then there are the handsome few,
Who have a life, and eyes that twinkle.
They might say hi, or wink at you.
Don't ask you out...a minor wrinkle.
I take a breath and try to be patient,
Love is blind, let's keep an open mind.
I prefer younger and not quite ancient,
So I pray to God that it's love I'll find.

BrokenYou say you want someone,
A lady to be your token.
Yet now it seems we're done.
Before we start, we are broken.
I don't know who it was, my dear,
Who lied and broke your heart.
But one thing is now so clear,
Deception for you is an art.
To look at you with eyes so blue,
No one would know your secret.
The words you speak aren't true,
While you lure your next coquette.
You say I must obey your rules.
Clearly, you need to be in charge.
But, darling, I'm not among the fools,
Who you then so easily discharge.
So before my lashes you dispense,
I chose for now to tell you ciao.
While to you, it may not make sense,
Unless my words touch you somehow.
For here and now, this tryst must end,
With so many words left unspoken.
I wish you with my kiss I could mend,
But you are so irrevocably broken.

*Sunrise Sunset*Vermillion sunset brazen delight
Lover's hold hands watching sight
Darkness descends night grows cold
So what, these hours are pure gold.
Vermillion sunrise streaks sky
Two lovers kiss farewell and sigh
Man holds woman close to heart
Dawn and life in earnest starts.
Pleaseit is the first word I think of...
it is the one that I whisper
when the world's become frozen,
Like a slow motion twister.
I'm just watching the people,
Moving on, moving up...
But I am just watching,
With this half empty cup,
of coffee that is yet to kick in...
ApartYou push and push and soon enough
I'm far beyond your reach
I used to live to feel your touch
But now I live for me
You said you lacked the space for me
Inside your broken life
And now I know we´ll never be
And I will be alright
I gave you what I thought you'd need
A hand to grab and hold
But there was never room for me
Inside your heart of stone
I do not feel I've wasted time
Or wasted any breath
I took a shot, you drew a line
And now we've reached the end
I feel the need to write it down
And know you'll never see
But I am moving past it now
I'll pass this hill with ease
You missed a chance of something great
You pushed too far and fast
And when you're all alone someday
You'll miss the chance we had
So move along, and move alone
I've put you out of mind
I hope you find a happy home
I won't be there this time
This isn't meant to crush your heart
That deed was done to me
Just know while we are worlds apart
Between they'll never meet
A Lost Love PoemI wrote your name in the sky,
But the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
But the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
And forever it will stay.
BeginningsProve me wrong.
Give me your time,
Walk alongside me,
Earn my trust,
Though you already have it,
Deserve my adoration,
Though my heart says you do.
Prove to my mind,
that my heart can be right.
Prove to my cynicism,
That faith wins all fights.
Do not kiss me yet...
Let the trust settle in first,
Or Anxiety will take flight,
And the best will become it's worst...
Hold me while I am restless.
But do not hold me still.
Allow me to stay,
Without bending my will.
Prove to my soul,
That another exists,
that won't damage my heart,
Or Gnash at my wrists.
The Warmth WithinTouch me with your hand, my dear,
Pull me close to your chest,
Hold me in your arms, my dear,
Your heartbeat gives me rest.
Let my hands,
Caress your skin,
So I can feel,
The warmth within.
Let me sleep in your presence, my dear,
The warmth of your heat divine,
Let me lie curled, my dear,
Your back touching mine.
Unseen, but not UnknownO, you whose arms I have not yet embraced
But long for in my dreams both day and night,
I will not let your bated breath go waste
Nor keep the blinding lamp trained your sight.
I will not let confusion guide your steps
And shifting sands give way beneath your heels.
Though all the paths may lead into the depths,
All possibilities to long ordeals,
The darkest shadows by the light were born,
The lowest dips must peak along the way.
Let not your face be anymore forlorn,
But smile, O you daughter of the day,
And place your hope in him whose outstretched hand
Will make us stand in all that he has planned.
26] PrinceRuby Prince
In a world of desolation,
Your warm voice, my salvation.
I was lost in a lonely place,
But you put a smile on my face.
My prince, my prince! how I've longed for you!
My prince, my prince! this song is for you!
I want to be yours, won't you be mine?
Red thread, red thread; our fates intertwine.
Struggling to raise my eyes to the sky,
But you've already learned to fly.
I don't wanna slow you down,
Am I worthy of your crown?
My prince, my prince! your smile is divine!
My prince, my prince! how your music does shine!
Your arm around me, I feel so warm,
Protected from every storm!
Now it's my turn to lift you up,
This love for you, about to erupt!
Come on, we're a team!
Come on, honey, let's dream!
My prince, my prince! let me feel your velvet touch.
My prince, my prince! how I love you, love
Love LetterYou know I am not good with words
They escape my grasp like mockingbirds
So to express everything I wished you knew
I’m sending this simple letter to you
You are my rock, my supporting arm
Helping my sanity, keeping me from harm
For when I’m lost in my mind’s maze
You anchor me with your embrace
Before you found me, I was reeling
Drowning. Helpless. Barely breathing.
You showed me love and gave me hope
With you I can live, instead of just cope.
If you asked me today
To follow you some place far away
I would pack my bags and lock my door
And let you lead me to a distant shore
Through blazing deserts, freezing planes
No belongings and no chains
For no matter where we roam
In your lips I will find home
Within YouThe stars are shining brightly above.
We gaze at them and wish for love.
The sky is clear, so far we can see.
We are connected, just you and me.
Across the galaxy so far and wide,
Love will find us, we cannot hide.
It may take a while, but never give up.
What is meant to be will always triumph.
The days pass by, and we wonder why.
Where is the love we've needed to fly?
The suns will set, the moons will rise.
You'll know the truth within my eyes.
So please be patient, and do not fret.
I am the butterfly, you hold the net.
Once you are ready, then I will alight.
And when you catch me, all will be right.
Till then, look up at the sky so blue.
You are within me, and I within you.
Our destiny charted, we play our parts.
Invisible strings connect our hearts.
So travel your paths, and enjoy the ride.
Make no mistake, our orbits will collide.
I'll be your morning, you'll be my night.
Our love is strong, it always shines bright.

a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
