    Oh Come On, I'll Show You Mine If You'll Show Me Yours.............

    Something bit my toe last night I don't know what it was. A sudden pain, a drop of blood, And I looked down, because I wondered if my cat had used His claw to get attention, In hope that I had filled his bowl But no such intervention. It must have been a bug that crept...

    Not Just Words

    What is a word Without a voice What is a thought Without a feeling I thought I knew All I needed to Until I realized I didn’t know you The way I want to The way I dream of Still here I am Hanging onto …your next word

    My Thoughts On Love.

    Sometimes When it feels Like Love It really Isn't. It may be Caring. It may Just be an Illusion. Delusion. I think It's only Real When it is Shared. Decided. It's not an Emotion. It is a choice. There is no Falling Fireworks You choose It .... Or not. :)

    Birds Of A Feather

    Even the birds aren't truly free Invisible strings attach even The eagle to the ground Robins live for the earth Popping their way across The worm-laden yard Hawks soar and dip Then land in a tree That goes to the ground The only free bird Is the dodo Because he's extinct

    She spent much of her life in emptiness.

    On the outside, she looked full. But inside, she was empty. Very empty. Yes, she searched for completion. She ran after it all the time. She ran after things she thought would make her whole. Her hands became claws, always digging, always outstretched. But she dug in concrete...
