NEW Poem: Mothers Heart

This is a BIG one for me. I haven’t written new poetry for 11 years. The reason for that, was due to the fact that the last two poems I wrote were about my daughters, who devastatingly passed away in 2007. I figured that there was no way I could write about anything more deserving…

Poem: Took Off the Lid

I built a dream around you I fucking did Shook up my life Then took off the lid   I made you shine in my mind Each bit of you was brilliance I worshipped you You just saw me as a convenience   I left myself behind I fucking did Shook up my life Then…

Words to Help & Inspire: Maya Angelou’s ‘Still I Rise’

Poem: Live

She’ll live until you make her die Her hair grows longer and blonder. She’s a shrill reminder of who you are Of where you came from Of whom you love. With a buried instinct to pursue The meaning of self you move In and out of awkward shadows To find nothing but an uninformed dawn…

Poem: Kitty

Wait for Kitty – Wait The painful mind that bends Away she flies Over hills that Stir the soul She stands alone Atop the highest peak The lowest bow She misses not the Sound of love She seeks the stars At Night. A world Without light Blackness and Emptiness To quell the pain Remain sane…

Poem: Crying Without Sound

By the time she was nine She had perfected the art Of crying without sound. It’s all in the breathing At first it’s hard to control yourself but you slow Right Down. When she was six She was happy in her ignorance of Life Her noiseless shudders helped her Out loads and She coped By…
