I Wanted Him

I woke in the middle of the night Wanting him Terribly. Wanting to feel his touch Hear his voice Or better yet, Have every part of him On every part of me.   None of those things were going to happen Because of where we are Where he is.   Yet logic had no place... Continue Reading →

Mend Then Heal Others

Tonight I pray For every man struggling with depression For every woman That has ever been victimized. I pray for peace in your soul Hope that you will see the other side of this storm.

Old Times

A fire, a beer, and memories Two old friends talking about the past Remembering everything yet not completely One or the other has to finish the story. Lightening off in the distance Reminds them of the time they hid in the forest Waiting for the storm to pass So they could run home.   Laughing,... Continue Reading →

She Won’t Win This

The mother everyone wanted Beautiful and fit Could bake cookies While removing gum From your sisters hair. She took care of your grandparents When they both passed away.
