Headed for the edge
The finish line, you’re mine
How can you replace the things, the times
What have you cheated yourself of, denied...
The smoke rolled effortlessly out of your lips
The cigarette still burning scarlet red between your fingers
My lips touched yours and I...
I sat tucked away underneath the empty closet shelves,
Like I was an old board game no longer in play.
I cried dry tears and craved your...
I'm fighting for air
For a breath of inspiration
My lungs scream for aspiration
I can't breathe, I'm...
Today I saw a broken rose,
It's petals all torn and brown,
The colour had faded from the flower,
It's head could only face down....
In the late nineteen eighties, I lived the single life;
Thrice divorced and doing well again, did not want another wife!
One deep breath of what yet lies,
Dreams of shattered butterflies.
As like my reflection their wings are torn,
You used to compare me to a sunset.
And how my blonde hair would reflect the sunlight.
Each strand shining more gold than the last....

I woke up this morning.
A local man was sentenced today for killing his three month old son.
Two teens were injured in a drive-by...
I've Been messed up so many times.
I've been a disappointment.
I've been let down I've been lifted up.
I've been heartbroken,...
Uh oh, darling, looks like you've lost your wings
Your sins have been pardoned
But it's your fault you made that mistake
Clean and sober,
If done right by using
The will to fight.
You just may see and live
Another beautiful day.
It hollers at the night to decease as the sky awakens, dancing with the morning doves; it compliments your breakfast with pungent produce and coats...
"Do you hear what I hear
nothing but the silence?"
"Do you see what I see
nothing but the darkness?"
"Do you taste what I taste...
