A Mirror

Attack a mirror
In fear
Of course, you'll be cut
So see clearer
My dear
Or duck

Retire Vampire

Retire, vampire
You're too old for this
Expire, empire
You've built on shit bricks
Rewire, required
Or you won't come with
A scriber, and liar
Can not coexist 
Inspire, go higher
This class is dismissed

Hiding Tiger

Hiding tiger in my tree
Watching stallions wild and free
Wishing I was one of these
I make them an enemy
Villianizing fantasy
I owe an apology
What I wanted was to be
Seen and loved for being me
Stay inside the sky and seethe -
Writhe and cry and beg and bleed
Maybe, but eventually...
I'll come down and crown myself
Queen

Someday

Walk on water, weave through air
Human here I guess - who cares?
I'll stand by my sea and stare
Someday I'll be back in there

Why

White like the lies in the words we don't speak
Clear as the tears from the sky while I weep
Dim like the light of your ship lost at sea
Why would you steer from our island I keep?
Cost is your soul when you sold it to be...
Seen by the eye that can not actually see
What could I write that would let me feel free?
Why? Must I die? Please deliver me peace

Room for Cream

I drink coffee black
But I leave room for cream
When I want what I lack
Then I must dare to dream 

See Me

Bee wings back, big eyes black
Coffee colored tresses lax
Ribbon curls around my rack
Petals placed across my snatch
Fairy ring around me stacked
Changeling on my mushroom mat
Can you see me? Kindly clap 
Need belief to make contact

Jellyfish Sequence

1,2,3
Priorities
Smoke, mirror, sea
Remember me?
Moon, minnow, grief
Drying Pisces
Sky, sorrow, beach
Skeleton key
Sleep

My Smile

How do I decorate myself?
With water where the wild things dwelt
The sword inside Orion's Belt 
With ancient tales the Toltec telt
In stones Medusa's snakes had dealt
My smile to make them break and melt
With all the love our Father felt
And light left as His angel fell
I disagree with Miss Chanel
I'll take things off when I'm in Hell

Graduate

Students ready, teachers here
Suddenly we both appear
Patience please, for both our sake
I am trying to caretake
She asks me to walk by faith
I her to communicate
Lending hand and listening ear
I can hear her loud and clear 
She sees me through facing fear
I'd abandoned my career
Thrive inside a twist of fate
Speak despite delay in rate
Love is all you need and take
Now we get to graduate

Traveling Light

I wonder what his heart looks like
A cypress tree and starry night
Like grenadine with Diet Sprite
The streamers on a child's bike
Cathedral bells and falling rice
Or ocean swells 'neath diamond kites
Like tinsel strands and traveling light?
He'll show me once he knows I'm right

The Mouse

With candy cane handcuffs, there needn't be keys 
Mistreat me this Christmas, I chew through and leave
My quips are my missiles and kisses deadly
Such insulin shock, you could drop and decease
Curled up with the kittens in mistletoe leaves
One eye on my business and cheese as I sleep
I've predators present at every degree
And ready or not, it's your thoughts I can read
So know this - I'm focused, and I will succeed 
The mouse in my house always stirring is me

God Boss

Love for an art
Heart for a home
God for a boss
Leave me alone

Jenga

Murder, mansion, mystery 
Do you know your history?
Queen of Hearts in memory 
Might I be your enemy?
Pick the candlestick and see 
Clues are in my poetry
House of cards and car of clowns
State of mind that wasn't sound
Sorry! Scrabble word not found
Back to basic starting ground
I'm in wind and when I'm round...
Jenga, all your walls come down

Show & Tell

Show & tell
Should've known
Swallowed whole
Spit up bones
Is this you 
Off your throne?
Without wings
All alone
Could've moved
Would have grown
Wouldn't you
Have rather flown?
Face your fear
Change your tone
Find your way
Phone your home

ICU (Love, God)

Whatever you may say or do
Or all you haven't gotten to
Whatever that you hurt or who
...Whether or not you meant it to
However you may think and rue
Or drug and drink into the blue
Whatever harm that then ensues 
(Although in time it's your turn, true)
Whatever you've been in or through...
You never change how I see you

Inside See

Look where He led me
Look at how lovely
Green isn't envy -
It's lush and leafy
Beavers so busy -
We stop what's easy
Block what would flow free
Dehydrate Maui
Irrigate, it's key - 
Water's inside, see?

Unsettled Soul

Unsettled soul
You never weren't whole
Oh Natalie, no
Not unloveable 
At maiden, mom, crone -
Married or alone
Believe me I know
I've been in your boat
We're already home

Dry Lightning

Dry lightning, no rain
Specific in aim
I fight it, my brain
This doesn't seem sane
Waned water, pure pain
I race 'round my drain
Must fix this, reframe
So blend them and bathe
In middle, I'm saved
A perfect storm made

Water Bearer

Water bearer, bring your cup
Tame the blaze that near corrupt
Air to lungs to rouse from rut
Legs of trunks to lift me up
Isn't that I'm not enough
Sentences can ends in 'but'
When this writer needs a nudge
Enters as an angel does
On my path and back above
Blessed am I to have your love

Glimmer

On the other side of trigger 
You will do well to remember 
Something simple so you center
Playful, pretty, joyful, gentle
Such as shells that spell surrender
Set one your ear to enter
To your heart, your holy mentor
Light in flight, ingnite adventure
What in life excites - a glimmer

Left a Libra

Left a Libra
Death in zebra
Stripes to wipe this from my soul
Split in pieces 
Kept it secret
Now I fight to make this known
Took my children
Had me prisoned
Turned my gifts against; Controlled 
I'll release this
Be forgiveness
Fear, it's clear - is to let go
