Shooting Star

You came into my life like a shooting star Lighting up the darkness I was lost inside Bringing back to life the bits of me that’d died I’m constantly fascinated by everything you are By looking into my blue and tired eyes You saw the part of me that I kept veiled With one look,…

Alterations

Black capes and spinning chairs Seem to always be the cure They heal the lost and misunderstood They change the appearance of the unsure Lock after silky auburn lock is cut You watch as they fall and collect on the floor You’re becoming a brand new woman Shedding the guise of the girl you were…

Freeing the Ice Queen

Her icy shell is melting away Falling from her body like a veil She’s never felt this free Escaping from her own personal jail She’s been locked inside of it for months The shackles are now broken Confining her no longer in their cold vise Unafraid, she’s leaving nothing left unspoken Can’t you see her…

My Heart’s Chambers

Look deep into my soul Gaze into the recesses of my mind See the cause of my need for control Why I build walls to hide behind Sure, I look fine on the outside But look deeper, darling, you’ll see that I’m not I’m scared to death on the inside You’ll see the snarl of…

Walk With Me Down Nature’s Autumnal Aisle

The air’s getting colder and bitter, darling Let me be your warmth and sunlight I’ll show you the joy and bliss I can bring Teach you how your heart can take flight While you’re wrapped in layers, hold me close I’ll delight in your cozy house of love You hold me as your captive, keeping…

Cobalt Cages

Blue eyes that have seen more than you know They’ve held every image Kept records of every tear That filled and flooded my eyes, then overflowed Blue eyes that have known heartache and loss They’ve been shattered They’ve been torn apart Sapphire depths of deceit that shine with hurt’s gloss Blue eyes that he said…

Her Self-Inflicted Wall

Her clenched fists pound on the great stone wall “Let me through!” She shouts Trying to break this wall of doubts Making a grown woman like her, feel so small She’s built this wall on her own accord, that’s true Every brick compiling it, she’s touched Every stone building it, her fingers brushed It’s built…

Fly With Me into the Sunset

In the words of velvet-voiced Sinatra, Come fly with me, let’s fly away Far from their ogling stares Away from the judgmental things they say Why should they have a say in our lives? Who put them in charge of our joy? We’ll soar high above their leering eyes I’ll be your girl, and handsome,…

Keeping Wonderland a Secret

You’re pure perfection standing before me Radiating goodness from every pore But oh, honey, it scares me that we may never be It causes shooting pain from deep in my core See, you don’t know just how firmly you hold me Tightly around your finger, I’m wound With you, I have no solid guarantee I…

Your Loneliness is Turning You Bitter, Sweetheart

Your veneer is crushing you slowly, dear The face you put forward will be the death of you You’re creating your own veil of sadness Shutting out the world so no one can get through Don’t you know that shields do you no good? They only push people away, you’ll end up alone You’ll have…

Wilted Rose

Your words wound me deeply, my dear As my eyes scan the lines quickly With each letter, my heart breaks further You’ve made me look so evil, so guilty Am I really so bad? Am I really that horrible? I know you hate me, but please, Am I honestly that deplorable? I know I’ve hurt…

Smudged Kohl Defenses

Just one more sweep of mascara Make your lashes lengthy and seductive Coat your eyes in a sooty invitation To no one else but you, is this destructive Line your eyes with black smudges Smear on more, love, it gives you confidence Acting as a barrier, the kohl keeps you safe The more you add,…
