Hey mister
Where are you going
While she’s showing
Her wares on the corner
 
Hey lady
Why are you pretending
So condescending
While they try to own and disown her
 
Hey sister
Why are you judging
While she’s trudging
Each day a mourner at her own waking
 
Hey brother
Why are you staring
While she’s fearing
Of tomorrows new found aches
 
Hey father
Why are you hiding
While she’s confiding
Of a lack of and more than a hug
 
Hey mother
Why are you crying
Always lying
About the girl who never sleeps with her clothes on
 
The Truth Is
 
Her lines are perfect
For more than a bed
Her covers blown
Still she wants to be read
 
Fast and hard
Or slow with meaning
Each day breathed in
Like a page turned in a braille bible
 
Till then she’ll dance
All night long
And for a price
She’ll sing her song
 
While she waits for the one
Who truly wants to listen
To the girl
Whose heart cries

no going around the bush here
picking the posies to expose
the bleeding tears - sear
with the hot rung a rose
left dripping with the memories
trying to play paper dolls
to no avail it's takes sail
drifting away on the tip of the air
just out of reach so they all stare
i cringe under the eyes
not sure of my disguise
with no more pages to turn
the longing in me continues to burnno history road map
can show me the way
but your words i will lay
in my lap-the dept of communication
in layers as you dance off the words - the hidden meanings
overflows the falls of my heart
a womb of possibility's rising
releasing the ignition - smitten

The light dawns
In the waking
Her making
Her longing
Her water of life
Spilt in effortless creationEyes closed
Wordless breaths
Speaking volumes
Into singular moment
A gentle pool of wine
Ignighting the phoenixEvery possibility open
Heavenly transcendence
She climbs into the womb
Of death and rebirth
The pressures of existence
Released into and uponThe Scorched Earth
Of futures passed
And come againCome again
The dawning
The wakingThe
Making
Of
Life(Will work on this one... thanks)

stuck on a moat
not owning a goat
she longs
at her making
hoping in waking
the light will dawn
