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.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

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.

Make me forget...
Make me forget
Let me look in your eyes
And dance with me.
Let’s drink by the fire
Like we used to
And listen
To long forgotten songs...
Long forgotten love.

When will I hold you
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.

Being abused, misused
And misunderstood.
It’s so simple really.

Or you don’t.

I used to smoke my pot
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.
Life does come full circle.

      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.

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

When did I fall in love with you?
It was subtle
And I didn’t notice.
I just knew
I couldn’t live without you.

I feel the chill of your back.
Your words took my air away
And I can’t breathe.
All this pain I’ve been holding
And hiding
Finally has no place to go...
And I can’t breathe.

Nero played the fiddle
While Rome burned;
The end of an empire.
The flames played,
Their colors so bright and we watched them flicker and light.
Some of us knew it was the beginning of the end
But some of us just stood
There was nothing we could do...
And the fire flickered with the word hope, as if it would never be
And she kept burning.

But you did not come.
And I let it go....

I hoped you could save me
From the world and from myself.
I hoped we could make a life,
Make things bright,
But you snuffed my candle out
That day you left;
That day you took yourself out.
I say a prayer
And the sign of the cross for you,
I live my life...
No doubt.

There’s something about
The written word
That is indelible
You can speak things
Into existence but...
When you write,
The words take on life.
And the power of those words
The moment in time
The emotion lasts forever.
Time and words...eternal.

I could hear a song
And feel it’s notes to my core.
I could see the sun go down
And look at the kaleidoscope
Of colors like no other.
I could love you with the depths
Of my soul
And love no other.
Yet, you cannot see me,
You cannot see the colors
And you cannot hear the song.
