POETESS

She
Doesn’t always
Wear a dress.

Her
Mind
Is sometimes a mess.

Her
Eyes
Will never have true blindness.

Her
Lips may not confess
Even under duress.

Her
Heart holds feelings
Yet to be expressed.

The
Life of
A poetess.

ALONE

When
You
Are
Here
Happy.

I am
Happy
For
And
With you.

Pushing
My
Personal
Happy tears
Down.

When
You
Are
Here
Sad.

I am
Sad
For
And
With you.

Pushing
My
Personal
Sad tears
Down.

When
You
Are
Far
Away.

Leaving
Me
Alone
I
Cry.

DANCING IN THE WEEDS

The
Girl
Remembers
In her dreams
Dancing alone
In the wildflowers.

The
Girl
Remembers
In her dreams
Becoming a woman
In the wildflowers.

The
Woman
In her reality, realizes
Life
Didn’t turn
Positively.

She
Now
Sees
She
Was
Dancing in the weeds.

THE RABBIT’S SCREAM

The wolves lie in wait
She crosses their path
The taunt begins.

Pushing
And
Shoving.

Claws
Fangs
Come out.

She screams
Once
Going unheard.

Death
Being easier
She doesn’t give in.

Staying
To fight
The good fight.

With battle scars
Seen and unseen
Her spirit remains unbroken.

Judgement day is coming
Soon
Free at last.

WIELD CHAIR

For some
Its a place of judgement
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

For others
Its a life sentence
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

Throw it
As far as
You can throw it
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

From broken window shards
To broken chains
Wheeled chair
Wield chair

QUARTER ROY

A good delivery boy
Always
Carries
Change
That’s quarter Roy.

After a good meal
He always
Leaves
A big tip
That’s quarter Roy.

At the sock hop
He always
Has coins
For the jukebox
That’s quarter Roy.

Always
Ready
To help someone
In need
That’s quarter Roy.

In church, on Sunday
He always
Has money
For the collection plate
That’s quarter Roy.

TWISTED LOGIC

We
May have
The same thoughts
But
Still think differently.

Taking the mind
In one direction
Ending up
In another.

We
May see
The same picture
But
Still see it differently.

Assuming
The obvious
Ending up
In the not so obvious.

We
May have
The same feelings
But
Still feel differently.

Turning
Emotions
Inside out, upside down
Backwards.

In the end
Its
All about
Choice
Interpretation.

Our
Own
Personal
Twisted
Logic.
