Look at you ... My darling young one
Bruised battered ... Bible in your hand
Your eyes leaking ... You know its done
Your love made reckless ...Like Custer’s Last Stand
Well the Titanic’s been sunk ... Rapunzel’s down to her last strand
Hansel Gretel Little Boy Blue hopelessly crying
Vacant is the finger ... Where once sang the band
As everything around you is beautifully dying
 
Edens awaiting ... With full mocking sun
Urging you towards ... Never Ever Land
Tattooed Nuns ... Confirm all your fun
With all the lust and love ... You can withstand
Phoenix freed from the chains of the skyway ... Whats already been planned
On four wheels tripping with radio flying
Across Constantine’s Bridge ... Marks the RedBird brand
As everything around you is beautifully dying
 
So don’t just stand there ... Take off and run
Heaven’s awaiting ... Lipstick Angels want your command
With all of your passion ... You are fortunate son
There should be no more hesitating ... You heard it first hand
Its long been undone ... Your posse did disband
There is no use in trying
Take your hope with you ... Let logic be damned
As everything around you is beautifully dying
 
Milk and Honey are calling ... Waiting to expand
A heart made free ... For what they are supplying
All it requires is for you to smile ... Vomit half yourself on hourglass sand
As everything around you is beautifully dying

Thank you Debra...
FYI I have a poem that plays off of your name a bit...
It is called Dahlia... my grandmother Delores asked me to write a poem about her firstborn Deborah....I told their story and incorporated items tied to their names...It is worth a look :)

Thanks brother! Always love your encouragement and poetic style/voice...Its cool that we can create from even the broken parts of our lives... and later the rawness of its beginnings draws the matured eyes of the one who lived it... to its hidden beauty... and truth...
