The Broken Doll.

entry picture

I'm just a broken doll, Unfortunately, no one can see. I was beaten and battered, But no one could have saved me.

It all began when I was alone on the shelf. The cruel world took me and I couldnt cry for help. I sowed my mouth shut and continued to smile. Nobody is coming to help, not for a long while.

I'm just a broken doll, Now everybody knows. Please forgive me for I do not know how your ...

True Beauty

entry picture

True beauty doesn't lie in the skin
It lies in the light of the heart
The sweet tune of a beautiful soul
Created from the keys of a piano.

True beauty lacks physical aspects
It isn't in the clothes he wears
Or the figure that she carries
Or the way we comb our hair.

True beauty comes from within,
Something that does not wrinkle with age.
Something not distracted by a simple imperfection.

Lift up thine eyes

entry picture

A scarlet ribbon torn in flesh

to vent a life 

needlessly shed

the innocent

like lambs are led

 

Yet sometimes

its the lambs that lead

they take their place

and hold the ground

and with their slaughter

love is found

Look Within

entry picture

We blame others for a world full of sin

How many lives could we save if only love was spread

Never using hateful words just trying to win

Just how many mouths could be fed

With all the makeup we use to cover our own skin

We wake up to a mirror full of dread

Following cele...

SOS Abort

I liar, that’s what I am

I roll my dice from in my hand

I sit upon my throne

Forged from pain

broken promises, pretty lies

They’re all the same

traction, I’m unable to gain

I’m slowly slipping into my old ways

I was getting better

Now it’s worse

Every Name I hear, I curse

But hers’

I cannot do that

she is perfect

she is sweet

I lay my life at her feet

A Revisitation

entry picture

A revisitation

 

The majesty of dogs impresses us –

Their solitary solidarity -

And above their grey horizons

There is a promise, lingering….

 

These days an ending is assumed,

That glorifies the story of our lives:

Making children, seeing things, and listening,

Listening, to our hearts’ desires.

 

Yesterday the sky darkened at noon

seas spe...
