Move, Child!

You shouldn’t throw those words around like flaming lips in a one man show. As if you were the only one with the dagger. Ha! I say, as my mind scours the range for someone to mean their twisted truths, for someone to fall at my feet begging for a forgiving heart left bleeding between…

Lock & Key.

“It’s easier to clean house this time around, ya know.” “Totally.” “It’s like these pieces I’m selling and giving away have spirits that are attached to them that have run their course in my life. I don’t know why I hung on so long.” “Letting go isn’t easy. And hope is even harder to let…

Nightmare.

“I had another nightmare.” “Its only a nightmare because he’s in it.” “Yeah, because I wake up without him.” “Why don’t you say something?” “Pride.” “You two were meant to be the leaders of a Pride, not to hold onto it.”

Check, Please.

If your love is conditional, please check yourself out of my home. If you can’t love me for where I am at currently, in my state of recovery, I can’t be bothered. If you come to me saying “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine,” from here on out, I have to walk away….

This Woman’s Work | Poem & Lyrics.

This Woman’s Work | Poem Elizabeth __________ Of all the things we should have been, we should have been You & Me; ourselves, through thick and thin and living like this for them to see. But the wind turned from North to South and the rains fell sideways through time and space; what a range…

Razor’s Edge.

There’s a razor’s edge between our tongues that cuts us through our core. I loved you once and I love you still in the space where we want more. More of life and laughter, and a future where it lay between two hearts. The bleeding and pulsing that it sliced between this part: The part…

Skinny Dip

I’m going to bathe in the moonlight where the bubbles kiss my skin. Where the waterfalls thunder down and sink me deep within. I’m going to dance in sheer linen that saturates my breasts. I’m going to spin under and beneath at your request. I’m going to lap up pools of seamen and take a lucky shot, at all your departed CONQUESTS, that suffocate beneath the dirt and rot.

IT RAN DOWN MY THUMB

I soaked in it twice and it ran down my thumb. The blood from the glass was all that was strung on your piano and in the souls of stars; the beating of the drums and the strumming of guitars. I played with your lyrics and I ate them for dinner. I was the world’s biggest fan, and…

FAREWELL PARDON

Smack down, gypsy whore turn and shady squint. Rise up, foxy canine snarl and rosy glint. It’s been forever that I saw you like that in this place. You didn’t even notice, take a bow or look in my face. You can’t do it because the waters are too deep, the air is too fair and the…

BLACK SHEEP

Pause that music. It’s a good thing for me to disappear amongst the flock so I cannot be seen. This is the starting of my greatest fear I’m all packed up getting out of here. You’ve been long gone as far as I can see; it’s a gnarly way through those locks and keys. It’s a long…
