Glass Shattered Promises
Anxious, I patiently sit and wait
Eyes darting to the clock and back
It's getting dark… I hope he isn't late.
How long has it been?
I can't even remember…
The smell of your skin
The taste of your kiss
It's all a distant memory to me,
The fragments of our eternal bliss
My eyes lit up with smiles
Every time I saw your face
We were both so happy then
Falling more in love every day
Sharing so many moments together
Sometimes laughing ourselves to tears
Without the joy you brought to my life
I haven't laughed in years
"I miss you, baby. When are you coming home?"
"Whenever I get the chance... I really just don't know."
Always hanging on a second longer
Lost in each other's loving embrace
You couldn't get enough of me
Now this house is an empty place
I remember when you'd bring me flowers
For absolutely no reason at all
But you slowly started drifting away
More and more as each petal would fall
"I don't know how much longer I can do this.
It's driving me insane!"
"Just hang in there, baby.
Pretty Little Fishie
Pretty little fishie
Swimming here and there
Darting about the deep blue sea
Without a single care
Never giving a second thought
about who's heart you break
"Disposable little angelfish…
my reputation is at stake"
Little did you know
This is my corner of the sea
You thought you'd get away with it
But you fucked with the wrong fishie
Eyes flashing, flaring gills
Protecting my little fishie heart
Before you even have the chance
I will rip you apart
This barracuda has bared her teeth
And she's ready to attack
So if I were you little fishie
I sure would watch my back
Pretty little fishie
Swimming to and fro
Hanging your little head in shame
Because this angelfish said no
A wicked forked tongue
Whissssspering in your ear
POISON, with venom dripping from
All the words you long to hear
Ssssshh... it's a sssssecret
I'm a cold-blooded reptile
Wrapping coils all around you
Hisssssing with a sinister smile
Ssssstare into my eyes...
Choking for your breath
You can't escape the inevitable
frozen coils of death
Nite I Danced with the Moon
My world is one of fantasy where only my dreams prevail
I like to fly above the clouds and on the wind I sail
I dance with the moon and sing with the stars,
an enchanting song that's sung from afar
It echoes on the wind and the melody is mine to sing
It speaks of a love I know and the joy that it brings
I look down from the clouds and hear the words you say
Reaching down on wings of love I carry you away
Now that I've taken you away from the world you used to know
You can never return because I won't let you go
Let me show you the stars and how they like to sing
Let's dance together on the clouds with the gentle wind blowing
Let me show you the sun with its warm radiant light
Let me show you the moon and how it loves the night
I will give you wings so you'll be able to fly
I'll give you a rainbow and let you paint the sky
You can laugh with the thunder and play with the rain
You can run with the lightning and walk with the waves
All these things and more I will give to you
If you promi
Another soul is lost forever
An angel writes their name
on a raindrop
Another soul turns away
The clouds are almost full and soon
there will be a storm
Another soul has chosen a dark path
Heaven mourns the loss as r
My beautiful tortoise
Your spirit is always with me
Only just a whisper away
You know my heart and my soul
You know when I'm hurting
You know when I'm overjoyed
You are a little ray of sunshine
You bring me such comfort
You sooth and quiet my troubled heart
With those sweet little turtle kisses
You are a precious creature
You never judge me
You never tell me I'm not good enough
You just show me the purest love.
That unconditional love between a human
and a little miracle of God's creation.
You are such a kindred spirit.
You give me hope and bring joy to life.
You know my deepest fears.
You know the dreams I dream.
You are my familiar.
You are a part of my soul,
More than a blessing to me.
You are a precious gift from God.
My beautiful tortoise
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
to crumble up
the remnant pieces
of my love for you
and throw them in the trash
but I'm such a bad shot.
Keep in Touch!
