Can I say I’m ugly
Because no one ever told me
Im pretty?
Why do I have to feel that way
Just because you never saw me?
Why do I have to feel unloved
Because you don’t love me?
Why can’t I love myself?
Questions I ask myself
In the dark.

Im so strong it scares me.
It’s been hard
But  the blows have taught me,
Silence has taught me
And the solitude too.
I finally learned
What we all must;
That in the end
It’s only you and God.

You’ve made it clear
You just use me
I don’t know
What I’m doing here
But I can’t stand
The way I feel
When you’re not near
So I let you
Knowing full well
I’ll pay the price
On nights like these
Oh but when you pretend
It feels so real
And it fills me
Lie to me

I’m hopeful
Even after all these years.
I still think
Good times are around the corner.
So, I wait.
I have been waiting all my life.
Giving up is foreign to me.
I’ll never give up
Cause hope springs eternal
And the best
Is yet to come.

JUST LOVE

God is Santa Claus
And childhood joy.
God is looking into a baby’s eyes.
God is warmth and comfort.
God is love and God is cozy.
How can I not love him?

The rain falls
Like little diamonds
From the sky
So bright... so beautiful
Like poetry in motion
Wash me rain
And I will be clean
Rain comes from God
To cleanse the soul

I’m so lonely and it’s hard to continue
And I want to end
But something inside me
Won’t let me go.
So I go on...
On the brink of something new
Pure hope
Of something new.
But I’ve been waiting
Since I can remember
Full of hope
But nothing comes.
I’m a flower fading...
I’m a flower crushed
A long time ago...
Lost.

They say money is a wonderful
Servant
But a terrible master
And that’s true when you live
For the dollar
And when that dollar matters more, and those you hold dear
Are the Ben Franklins and the Grants.
You look around
But there’s no one there
And when you’re scared,
All you have is a sweaty,crumpled bill
In your hand.

When you open your eyes
To the warm morning light,
Don’t think about yesterday’s
And things that didn’t work out
But look to that light
And have a new hope.
Today is brand new
And so are you.

He’s very tragic.
He’s very talented.
He’s an evil genius.
I watch him as he manipulates
Lives and loves.
I watch them
As he breaks them down.
I feel their pain
But does anyone feel his?
He’s very tragic, you know...
He’s very talented.

Are you with me?
I can’t feel you anymore
I think you left
A long time ago.
And the snow drifts
Like a vagabond...
Just like your heart...
And my heart breaks in silence
It doesn’t make a sound.

Four chairs but there’s no one
Sitting there.
It’s only me here
In this space, alone.
Where there was laughter,
There were voices raised
And there was passion,
Nothing remains but space.

Let me look in your eyes
And dance with me.

Like we used to
And listen
To long forgotten songs...
Long forgotten love.

In my arms again?
When will I feel
The warmth of you
And smell your babies breath?
For you grow up so fast.
And alas, I grow old as fast.

You can never take back
An attack
Or the way
You make someone feel.
...And i can feel the hate
Spew out of you.
And every time you take
My peace away...
I cry.

I want someone to love me
Like Heathcliff loved Cathy.
I want someone to love me
That way.
I want to be the one
That looks away.
...but then, I want to feel
That way.
I want to be in love.

I’m my own woman.
Always been a loner.
Always been alone.
It’s a feeling and it’s cold
But I’ve always been alone.
Don’t know how to get out.
Don’t know how to connect.
And I can hold you,
Hold your hand and love you
But in the end
I’m my own woman
Woe to me
I’m alone.

You see my flaws
But you don’t know the life I’ve had.
You judge me
But you have no probable cause.
And you don’t know the life I’ve lived
Or why.
Just love me
Flaws and all.

The snow drifts like a vagabond.
Falling, falling, falling,
I’m falling for you.
We come full circle, we loose, we find.
We live, we die.
At the end of the road
I hope you’re there.

Let’s walk through life
And through the storms
Hold it tight.
The ebb and flow
Through day and night
That’s what makes moments
That’s what makes life.

Do clouds hold souls
Yet to be born?
Do Angels live there too?
I ponder this and think of you.
Can I walk on the clouds
With you?
Let’s never come down.

Lessons in compassion;
I learn them well.
For you can’t stand
In the place of another,
Until you have felt an affliction
That teaches you
To love your brother
As you love yourself.

When I leave you,
You will not notice.
Until you need me.
And you will need me,
In so many ways
That you disregarded.
Still I know
That I meant so little to you
That it will take no time
To replace me.
Just like a thing
On an assembly line.

To ease my mind
And ease my pain.
But now I rub it on my body
To ease my mind
And ease this pain.
Go figure.

      My Red Shoes...
When I was little, yet four,
Those were my favorite shoes.
As time went by I wore them well,
I grew.
My shoes became institutional
And not the ones I picked but
I wore them well and I grew.
My shoes became sandals and flip
Flops and pumps as I learned
The ropes and I didn’t care...
But life is a circle
And I love my red shoes
As I grow old.

Where I dream all my dreams,
I think,
Beware...
Don’t let your life be over,
Without having lived.
