Just Make It One More Night


Sometimes the darkness in your mind

Sometimes the piercing in your heart

Sometimes it’s just much too much

Ideations of eternal peace

make you long to just go home

Stop Stop Stop

Don’t listen to the lies

The Sun is a promise

that never fails

The warmth of the morn

is not far away

Sit with your pain

hold it tenderly

just till dawn

Your pain is like a scared child

can’t you see she needs you

she weeps from her soul

Tell her she’s not alone

cradle her tenderly

rock her softly

Hum her sweet melodies

just don’t let go and tell her so

Gently you awaken feeling warmth from within

you blink at the suns glow that nuzzles you

you made it one more night

When others can’t give you the love you need

remember that pain is the hurt child in you

that part of you that needs were not met

Will you also shame that child in you?

Will you tell her you have others things to do?

She needs you as she has all through the years

be the one to mother and nurture lovingly

hold her in your arms as she weeps all night

Remind her she’s not alone and you will see

You made it again…one more night…

I Promise You Todays with No Problems

20170430_075404I am awake late at night because my new kitty I just adopted is unsettled.

She paces my room like a caged lion and I yearn to gaze in her mind.

What is she feeling? What has she been through and what life has she had?

Is she edgy because she is a free spirit used to roaming where she wills?

Or has past traumas made her uneasy of what lurks behind the next moment?

She cries and she paces and if I try to sleep she is quick to awaken me.

Why is she afraid to be awake by herself?

I want her to know we were destined to travel this journey called life together.

Just as I tell myself now, I need her to know. Leave your past at the door…it serves you no purpose anymore.

What’s done is done. We can’t change the past so let it go.

We can’t let the past run our life, so let it go.

It may have ruined yesterday, but let’s not let it ruin today by reliving it. So let it go.

I give no guarantees about tomorrow, but I can give you.

Stay with me in the now, and I promise you…

Everytime it’s “now” and we have a situation…it will pass.

Every time it’s “now” and we have no situations, I promise you no pronlems.

How does that sound my new furry friend.

Stay with me kitty, and fear not, it doesn’t get any better than this.




The end of a dream…


Did we even have one?


You were never there

and as I look back


you gave me nothing


Visions of our future

of growing old together

was ever discussed


So what did I lose really


I actually received something

I gained my own dreams now!




I had put a child to sleep
a voiceless tortured child
and very wounded too

I felt I was doing a good thing
I had put this child to sleep
to put her mind at ease

This child had been put
through so much
pain too much to bear

I didn’t cradle this child
I didn’t hold this child
I just let this child fall to sleep

No blankie to hold
no teddy to hug
this child was on her own

Like a negligent mother
I threw her in a room
and slammed the door shut

Sleep now I’m too busy
I was too busy for her now
I had a life to live now

I’m the child I speak of
the child is my pain I speak of
all tucked away from me

That pain was never cared for
never nurtured or caressed
still left and abandoned

Success shows how much
I have healed on the outside
but what about the inside




Tonight you lay your head on your pillow and you remember how things used to be.
You remember that there should be someone next to you.
The warmth of his body next to yours.

Tonight you remember the times you talked about your day.
His laugh, his smile, how he looked when he laze.

He was your family, he was your history.
Let the sadness turn into tears.
Let your tears turn into sobs.

Let your guard down

let your weakness show

let your soul be cleansed.

Tonight as you lie alone

let it be ok to release the pain you feel.

Go ahead and cry and cry and cry

it’s ok get it all out.

But in the morning when you wake

rise out of your grief

let the hot shower rinse it all away.


Throw on your best dress

and hold your head high up high!


There’s a life waiting

just out your door.

Go get em’ tiger!

Don’t forget the Visine!
