An Invitation

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
You held me tight
I couldn't let go

A kiss, a hug, a fond embrace
Returned me to a different time and place

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
Thoughts for a moment
of how once was our time spent

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
Dinner, a walk,
a laugh and a talk

If you invite me in I wouldn't say No
I kissed your cheek and said You're right
I held you close You held me tight

We both knew it was the end of the night.

Nothing to say
I have no voice.

Nothing to say
but not by choice.

Nothing to say
how very strange.

Nothing to say
hope this will change.

Nothing to say
it's something new.

Nothing to say
What shall I do?

Bodies Entangled On The Floor

Bodies entangled on the floor
feel the pressure nothing more
Discussions of what could be
Feeling pressure incessantly
Bodies entangled on the floor.

How did we meet?
How long has it been?
Conversations for old friends.
Kisses exchanged.
Parts rearranged.
Our returning feelings never seem strange.

I let my question go unasked
The answer I think is better off masked.
Don't really need to know,
Thought that I wanted to though;
Still the question I let go.

Just enjoying this moment in time
Surrounded by arms that will never be mine.
Bodies entangled on the floor
filled with passion but nothing more.

After the Feast

Why does my belly hurt?
Oh yeah, the decadent dessert;
Or was it all the meat and mashed potatoes?
Heaven knows it couldn't have been the tomatoes,
stuffing or the gravy, No that couldn't be.
Candied yams and bits of ham glazed ever so sweetly?

Why does my belly ache?
Could it have been all the cake?
Curse this appetite I tried to sate
The taste testing because I couldn't wait.
Must have been All the food I ate 
in generous portions piled on my plate;
That I just ate and ate and ate.

Eyes bigger than my tummy
I couldn't help myself
It was all so yummy
Didn't eat it all as I'm no dummy
There's some left overs upon my shelf
Another delicious treat just for myself.

This time I will not pile the food upon my plate,
This time smaller portions I will take;
Because the end of the holiday is here
Over eating and a belly ache 
well they will just have to wait
Until the same time next year.

Give Thanks

Give Thanks
That's what the Pilgrims and Natives did
but not the myth
 that we all live.

Give Thanks
For Life and liberty,
for  love and laughter,
for triumph through disaster.

Give Thanks
Don't just think materially
think kindness and generosity
think friends and family.

Give Thanks
Buddha or Allah, Mother Earth or Brother Wind
 Krishna or Isis too
Pick all, one or any God or not it's up to you

Give Thanks
Everyday not just on Thanksgiving 
Thankful is the way 
We all should be living.

I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Savoring the moment
when all my time's spent
consuming delicious stuff.


I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Sweet and delicious
It's barely nutritious
What to eat first the decision is rough.

I hate all the waiting
It just can't come soon enough.

Passion's Plaything

Passion's plaything
must not be you
If you scare me
and I scare you.

What's a confident girl to do
Who needs aggressive
and that's not you?

Our mutual attraction's
for an intimate

But if you scare me,
and I scare you
One on one won't happen
From us two.

You, Me and Jumping with Glee

You had me and you set me free
So excuse me If I don't jump with glee
When you tell me that you miss me.
You traveled the skies to reach me.
Told me my smile set you free.
You hoped that one day we could be
Sailing together across the sea.

Over the miles our relationship grew.
My hopes, heart and dreams I stored in you.
As months passed you asked what I wanted to do.
After my answer, I felt you withdrew.
Our original passion we couldn't renew.
When you said you were leaving I already knew.

It's year's later you're talking to me.
I ask myself, "How could this be?"
You see, you had me
and you set me free.
So excuse me
If I don't jump for glee
When you tell me that you miss me.

Chaotic Experiences

My life is a
never ending series 
of chaotic experiences.

One moment 
I have a general discontent
about everything.

The next
I'm a lover of life and beauty
anxiously awaiting to
create art and sing like no one's listening.

What joy a
never ending series
of chaotic experiences
can bring.

Lost Boys

I cannot bear to watch you fall
and yet I cannot stop you.

The safety net I represent
I've now begun to strongly resent.

Wendy has left the lost boys.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011


You didn't listen to what I had to say.
Told me I didn't need to ever think that way.
Called me a little girl and told me to go play.
All I could do was shake my head and walk away.
Can't help smiling as it all turned out this way.

Not gonna mention that you thought I was insane.
Not gonna mention how many times you called my name.
Not gonna mention every time you scream in vain.
That I told you so.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011


You tell me the truth 
in so many lies.
My heart finds it hard
to just disguise
The feelings you stir inside.

I See You

You don't see me,
see you, see her.

You don't see me,
see you, see him.

You don't see me
but I see you.

Oh what you do
When you don't know
Someone sees you
and the whole show.

You don't see me
and I don't see you;
You seeing me
Seeing someone too.

Eleven, Eleven Eleven
Some say
It's the start of heaven.
Some say
It's the end of days.
Some say
It's as lucky as seven.
Some say 
It's a day of praise.
And some
Just say
Happy Nigel Tufnel  Day!

Come and Go

My Depression Moods
Are things that come and go
like laughing.

Laugh more
Cry less.

When you cry
Make it your best

When you're through
Consider this

These things I know
Come and go
like laughter.

Magic and Misery
live forever.

Sooner or Later

Dreams may be wishes
deep down in your heart
But do they really come true?
I believe they do.

Sooner or Later
but not today,
In some tomorrow
Not far away.
Dreams will be
Sooner or Later
For me.

Wish upon 
a shooting star;
All you desire
is not where you are,

Sooner or Later
but not today,
In some tomorrow
Not far away.

Wishes come true
for me
and for 

Shooting Star 
Wishing Well
Dream a Dream
And it sets sail
In some tomorrow;
Closer than you think,
Dreams come true
In a single blink.

The Dark Side of Hope

The Dark side of hope
It's name is disappointment.
The feeling which overcomes you
When hopes been promised
And does not follow through.

Full Moon (2-6-96)

Tonight there's a full moon
An absolutely magnificent full moon
that glows in the midst of ebony tendrils.

It's huge. 
A triumphant wheel
embraced in onyx nails.

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away
A Children's Chant
A game they play

Rain Rain Go Away
It may be Childish
But I'll play

Rain Rain Go AWAY
Children know
just what to say.

I wish I didn't have to go out today
That everyone would stay away
I'm warm inside my cozy room
The music's low
the night's in bloom
My heart's desires lay
just outside my door
But I'm content to stay
inside here on the floor.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011


The world is 
a strange and wondrous place
filled with lots of desires.

And all I require
Is my own space

To pass the time
how I desire.

Dia de los Muertos

Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

No matter what
We use instead
The meaning it cannot replace

Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

Today's the day to
remember those who've
passed into this state

Passed away
No longer with us
Gone to a better place

Remember lives of those we've loved
Who cared for us as best they could

Remember lives of those to young
To have left us in the first place

Remember lives not just today
but always for you see

The memory is the
life legacy.
