Pardon the Mess... Restoration in Progress

If you hadn't lost it ALL, just about anyone could give you a lil bit here and there.

If it wasn't so MAJOR, maybe a friend or family member could help you make it through.

If you hadn't been so BROKE, don't you think someone could loan you the rest of the cash?

If your heart wasn't TORN into PIECES, your friends could take you out and cheer you up

Goodbye Letter

Yes, I hear you!!!
Your voice echoes echoes echoes in my mind
as the words soarrrr off the lines
dysfunck-ing my atmosphere
inhaling stenched excuses
each syllable
singes my nostrils
burns my eyes
I cry
to smother the wildfire
blazing through my heart

The flame once set upon the torch
that kept the passion burning
is at its wick’s end
One more deep breath
may be its demise
Another breath…

Teardrops (poem)

scarlet eyes
a million teardrops
to my demise
thunder terrors
diminished dreams
can’t see the sky
I’m paralyzed

steep and thick
not a single teardrop
could puncture it
hardened heartache
frozen fossils
angered stiff
my heart is sick

letting go
a dozen teardrops
melting snow
forgiveness flowers
springtime smiles
the final show
now, I can grow

season’s end
no more teardrops
embrace the wind
perfect peace
feeling free
we can be friends
I love again!
