Maybe the Next Lady

He gave a snail the power to love But didn’t calm or move the seas. Power fell from between his feet So he had to raise his fees. Many ladies like his kind The words that he spews. I happen to think that action is better If a lady gets to choose. I tire of... Continue Reading →

Because He Lied

Threw a rock into the river of silence, When a storm didn't pass. Took the force of dignity to a new level When I told him to kiss my ass. Worried when I was told the truth That it was a lie instead. Stole what I could of integrity Though dying, wouldn't take a piece... Continue Reading →

You Want Her

Not quite enough to say hello Or to answer her message. Maybe not quite enough For forever; But a really good 'right now' Sounds great.   You want her just enough to lie About something little, or perhaps big. Just enough to get this sinking feeling When you think of what you would risk In... Continue Reading →


The ink hadn't even dried yet The tears dripped onto it Making the writing smear So only I could tell What it said Initially.   I guess he couldn't focus on me He couldn't quite see through the dust He liked the part where I gave my heart But his favorite part of it was... Continue Reading →
