Dizzy me

She is something
strong
With a
twist
Dizzies my head
feebles my feet

Hug, Care, Love

The murderer, the rapist
the dangerous criminal
all needed a hug
all needed someone to care
at just the right time
Hug, care, love
You just might be
another's turning point

Material Girl

Chasing after glamor is
to stand in front
of a moving truck
attracted to oncoming light

Back at one

I forged ahead
and took many steps
Only to realize
my walk was a circle
Leading back to the start

Three Words

I wrapped three words
in a box
and signed
and sent

You opened the box
and smiled
and cried
and took them to heart

And in my folly I took
back the words
and made you feel
that they were not real

I now wrap
the three words in a box
Return not to sender
For they couldn't be more real

The Inner Child

We all want to cuddle
all want to be hugged
We all need the security
that we felt as a child

Loss of Self

To let the black jack
Cling onto your skin
To live another's life
is living in sin

I am

I am
who I was yesterday
And will tomorrow be
who I am to day

For I am
constantly creating
Constantly defining
who I am

Reruns

If I could
I would
Do the same
all over again

Else I wouldn't
know what I now know
Wouldn't
be who I now am
