    When Patsy SingsIt's closing time,

    and the jukebox wails,Things I did, and the things you said,Echo in the loneliness of my mind,And when Patsy sings, angels cry.One more drink to numb this pain,Closing my eyes to stem these tears,Hearing your voice, words in the song,And when Patsy sings, angels cry.It's lonely...

    Awake At 300 Am

    Kindness

    What little bit of what's left of me almost died today. Those things that mean so much in this world, I lost along the way. I met a man as cold as me. He found what i had lost. He turned around and gave it back.. He knew just what it cost. In a world so cold and hard...

    I did nothing wrong, To hurt you with my tongue,

    For the words I have sung, Surely they shouldn't have stung. To be honest, I loved you till the end, But now we are just friends. It ended so abruptly when your soft lips departed and spoke, And in the end I couldn't manage a croak, My life is bad but it was livable with you...

    Little cat with a hat.

    .. (Robert Doisneau photo) I am a cat with a hat, but I think I'm a horse, I have little animal syndrome, to compensate of course, But I am fierce and full of courage, I show no remorse, But give me a while, I said with a smile, After my nap on the porch.

    Ballad of Felicity Rose And they laughed

    as he came into town, Hair too long, and clothes long worn, “His eyes ain't right,” whispered one. “Best warn the others,” a knowing nod, “There's a stranger in our midst, tell one 'n all.” The bartender paled into them crooked eyes, He tossed down a coin, “Gimme...

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...

    Sometimes we live this lie,

    That we think we'll manage through. We tell ourselves it'll get better, But does it really? We go by each day of our lives hoping to find some sort of meaning, But no meaning comes— And we're left here wondering where it might have gone. Or who we are, And our purpose.
