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…

Dismantle.

“Why are you distant, it’s a good day after all?” he was genuinely concerned now. “I don’t know. He chose. He chose these superficial handcuffs instead of my hand … cuffs that bind the mind when the brain bugs overwhelm him. He chose them over me … again. One of these days it’s going to arrest…

Unconditionally.

I got my knickers in a twist and put on my passive aggressive panties, when really – it was all out of fear, my love. Now I sit in silence, doubling-up on meds just to ward off the tears that haven’t flowed since I saw you last. And I fear I may never see you…

“Ten Fingers & Ten Toes.”

“Ten fingers and ten toes” Is a measure of good health, they say. But dancing on Daddy’s dugout, Now that’s how we know you weren’t led astray. Still waters run deep But the shallow end is where you play, But dancing on Daddy’s dugout, Now that’s how we know you weren’t led astray. The rain…

CEMETERY HILL

And you escape me. Like it’s nothing. The static unfolds. And the hearse brings to mind the days of laughter past and enveloping my skin, unfolding my heart to the depths within. I remember the night we kissed on the porch under the moon, the devious nature of it all and the sunrise calling us…

GRIZZLY ENCOUNTERS

A man was killed by a Grizzly Sow and her cub in Yellowstone this past Friday. I only post because it is my worst fear and it hits close to home. I was in Yellowstone in the Spring time last year as the Grizzlies were waking up with their cubs from their long winter’s nap. I…

SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE – MIRROR, MIRROR

So, I’m a spiritual being that happens to be human. Aren’t we all. I make mistakes and I fail. And quite a bit, as I wake up to my new reality. So, I can use all the help I can get and I tend to seek that help out from loved ones that passed on….

FROM BIRTH UNTIL HEARSE

The efforts to control a divine plan within the Universe were in vain. The only thing that came out of it was that we were all left crippled and wallowing in pain. Friendships broken, hearts shattered, time stood still, as if it never mattered. I leave it as is, because that’s how it should be. People will come while others will…

RECOVERY TIME LAPSE

Almost one year of recovery underway over here! A month away. Not a perfect recovery by any stretch of the imagination, but one of true progress. I can say I am really proud of myself after this year. What a year it’s been. How many roller coasters of emotion can one gal ride on? It…

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

Do you get angry in the middle of the night for things that you haven’t said, for the tales that haven’t been told, and for the chapters that haven’t been read? Do your demons play well with mine? Does your mind contract and unwind? Do you have an insatiable, unquenchable and incorrigible flair? A meeting of the minds that…
