Continued from Yesterday…
My cold body, floating through forest green
My soul reaching for the love I cannot hold
Before dying, my heart remembers his smile
Given to others
When a heart break more than once
Red shards are left behind
A path of sorrow
I warn no one to follow…
Have you ever had one of those days
when you feel as though you are made of glass?
I am having one today.
I can feel small pieces slipping away as I walk
I am broken, disappearing slowly
I can almost see the pieces glistening behind me
like a trail of breadcrumbs.
Will someone follow and put me together again?
Would you give Lucifer mouth to mouth?
Should the need arise
While angels sit waiting for his demise…
A wicked wind is blowing
Fireflies are dancing
as if they don’t care
Their green light flashing
showing off, just as we do
from time to time
I will keep my light flashing
keep dancing until the end…
Smoke @ mirrors
I found Aladdin’s lamp today
I rubbed until my hand was sore
No genie did I find
Why do these stories haunt the mind
to think there is magic we can find
when all is nowt but puff and smoke…
I met a lady at the fair
Let me tell your fortune, said she
I smiled and kept on walking
She stopped my steps with this,
“You have one number wrong on your ticket.”
I paid with silver,
she told me then, “turn the four into a five
to see your fortune thrive.”
With this, my bank account did swell…
Lightning struck through a dark cloud
like a bright smile
The wind howling like a beast in torment
My window shutter slamming
to the beat of my heart
Would my house remain standing
Or would I end up in Oz,
standing on the yellow brick road?
You cannot escape the beast inside your head
Even when you think it’s dead
He whispers seeds of doubt, of discontent
Until your light is finally spent
You fight the beast inside your head…
A Good Day
I need a tall shot of yesterday
it was like a fine red wine,
kissed by the sun…
Each time a child is born
there is a new ripple in time.
An old soul has re-entered the Universe.
Changes are afoot…
