We're the throw away


The use em and lose em



Like old cars

you trade us in

for new models

After  putting 

one hell of alot of miles 

on us


One man's trash

is another's treasure


So here I sit

on the Goodwill's shelf

like the Velveteen Rabbit

Waiting for


a Real Man...

Here he comes the fury beast

riding thru the wind

Thighs are beating

as is his heart

Excitement from the very start

He lives for motion

fast and free

Don't hold on to me

is his plea...



On goes his cap

then his helmet

He steps on his pedals

getting ready to run

Winding and winding

the wheels go

Sweat pouring 

from his soul...

How about them bad boys

why are they so hot

Sweet and kind that are not


Tough and burly

makes the girlies

Go nuts!


So addictive 

like milk chocolate


I try to stay way

but the words

"I've got skills"

Make my knees weak

I become meak

And obey

their every command


Soon I can not stand

being so spineless


This issue is...

I needed a pillow under my head

to support me

Not to cover my face

smothering me

Can't you see 

that's what you did to me?


I did not run to be mean

or control you

I ran because I could not breath...


But I needed a pillow

so I kept coming back

Hoping you would learn

to be by my side

Equal beings

neither better or worse

Existing to support e...

Forgiveness is my best friend

she gives such relief


Finding my best friend

can be such a challange

She often hides in the corners of my mind

plays hide and seek with my heart


It's so hard to let go

and let her do her magic

It's easier to sit in the dark closet

holding onto anger


Anger is black and painful

it takes from my soul

It lies and ch...

Tis Christmas

thru the land

of forgiveness

and love 

We should travel


Grudges should stay

with the Grinch


If not forever

at least for today


Hold your friends

and family


Know that they

are ever so 



Let go of anger

and resentment

Enter the world

of contentment


If not forever

at least for today

Wearing rubber boots

I open the door

what kind of horror will I face?

Never been to this place

but heard of the legend 

of Michi


A black feline


Who protects 

her dwelling

with her fangs and claws

Got to follow her laws

or swiftly be corrected 


She claimed this home

after living a life of abandoment

A feral

who was tired of the p...

Who's driving this car!


Going down the emotional road

no one at the wheel

Not a good deal


Looking back and wishing I could

grab control

Take us where we want to go


Instead two children 

fighting in the back seat

When will we get there!

we scream


No grown up around

Minds confused

Tempers real

Tires squeal 


Going too fas...

OK I got a bit silly with this one. A woman said that words do not matter in poems. HELP!

I wanted to blow up. Poems are nothing more than a wonderful collection of special words to tell 

an amazing story. So here is a twist on "The cat walked down the street"




The slinky slithery siamese cat slipped and slid strutting down the slippery street...

silly but sw...

How many tears can one girl cry?


it depends on the lie...


The world is often not what it seems

Broken hearts

Broken dreams


How many tears can one girl cry?


What seems real is often make believe

a part of the truth but not complete

My heart is often not considered

I am real and my heart beats


Beauty is skin deep

The heart is deepe...

Booties on the tree

for him or for me...


My mind is in a miasma

sight blinded

In a dream like state

trying to peek thru

what did I do

lose them along the way


Thoughts and visions begin

to dance in my mind

Pictures of him and me

I try to find


Instead nightmares

run thru my head

Lies choke me like a python getting ready to eat it's prey

Who could have known that's who he was

a man of Grump Land


His past added up to insecurity

that came out of his mouth

in the form of lampooning

Aspersion dribbled from his orifice

leaving a need for estuaries

in Grump Land for humans

to gain protection from his salty words


Yet there was a sweet spot

amongst the weeds and storms

A place he hid from mos...

I woke up this morning a bit confused

ready to go to the kitchen and swallow my pills

They help my mind get straight

if I don't take them by eight

it's too late


I look at the clock OH NO I over slept


My thoughts start to gather and circle my room

I try to grab one but it escapes me

Words start to play bumper cars in my head

soon it feels like lead

my mar...

Born into a dwelling filled with creativity in the air

she breathed it in

it was like blood to her soul

oxygen needed to support her existence


It was a time when men were men and women were women

little blending of roles


it did not fit her

it was the wrong size


She was one that needed to spread her wings

and fly with her talent

Live in a world ful...

I'll jump over the moon for you

I'll give you a diamond ring

Those were the words that went thru my head

when you convinced me to lay with you in your bed


Were they lies

Were you the wolf

looking for your lamb


You are the one

was your song

let me inside


My heart was so empty

it cried for love

I allowed you to enter

my most treasured gift

Where were the words

why couldn't we talk

So much I wanted to say 

but the words got caught in my throat


Why did the magnet push us apart

when there were words to say


Could it be different at a different time

was it just the timing

I don't know


So awkward 

So off beat


We couldn't get the timing 

of the dance


Yet the magnet d...
