...And I’m sorry
I couldn’t be there
In your pain.
But you shut me out
And wouldn’t let me in.

      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.

I waited for you
With anticipation,
Like a child.
But you did not come.
And I let it go....
I let you 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.

I think about crying
To relieve this pressure
But I think
What good would it do?
Will it bring you back to me?
Will it make things right?
So I take a deep breath
And live...
On the brink of a tear.

If you think you broke my heart
Well think again.
It was already broken
So you can walk away
Without the guilt.
I was already dead
Long before you murdered me.

A dread came upon me
A dread of my life.
And I thought about you
All of you
That have come and gone.
In the end
I’m my only friend.

Woman you have worth.
They’ll always come for you.
You don’t have to beg
For anyone’s love.
You will always choose
Who you want.
You are the heart of a family.
You are what makes a home.
You are what makes a happy life.
Own that.

You are gone.
Not even your essence remains.
And it’s not your fault
But you still left.
And I remain wanting
To take a simple walk
With you,
To talk to you.

Your little eyes, so bright
Your little hands
That hold mine, so tight
Your little lips,
A perfect bow
The funny faces you make
Let me know
I just love you so.

My precious baby...
Child of my child.

Look at my picture
But I’m not there.
What you see
Is not what you get.
There’s a lot of soul
But no depth to those eyes
Cause I’m not there.

But never there for myself
I slipped, hushed...away.

You talked about forever
But forever ran out.
Forever sounded good
But expired
As you walked away.
Friends forever
But forever was as long
As it served you.
I’ve often thought about forever,
For I’ve never said the words
I don’t know what forever means.
Walk away...
I walk away and don’t look back
Because it hurts to see you
All back there ...
All my forevers.

I don’t even know
Who you are.
What you have become
Is foreign to me.
I’m lost and I feel alone.
I want to go home.
Desperation creeps in
And I cry tears I try to hide
Lest someone see
Lest someone notice...me.

Touch my face and talk to me
Of love.
Touch my face
And look in my eyes.
Tell me that you love me
And not that you lust me.
Hold my hands
And put them to your heart.
Let me feel your heart beat fast.

Maybe I’ll meet you in heaven.
And I’ll be glad you’re there.
Cause here, we could never
Make it.

Why can’t you say what you mean?

Why do you have to
Beat around the bush ?
Just let it go!

And mean what you say...

Once again?
Dare I hope
That I smile and mean it?
Dare I hope
That I can walk in nature
And see its’beauty?
Yes...I think I dare.

Sometimes nothing helps.
The candle still burns.
I take another turn,
I try to live yet I fall...
But the candle still burns.
It flickers and blazes
And even though
I might want
The wick to fade...
The candle still burns.
