What’s Left

This is all I have – This is all I am
Tears flowing bursting the dam
Spending moments filling photos
Snapshots of highs with an abundance of lows
I’ll give what’s left of my soul
Walk carefully don’t fall down the hole

I Killed A Man

image

You stalked me like a lion with precise steps, anticipating the kill. For me it was an innocent summer evening. For you it was complete and utter euphoria.

Walking out of the grocery store I saw your unassuming smile. With a nervous smile I placed my groceries in the car. Suddenly, I was subdued with a fist to my left jaw. I awoke with the taste of red liquid metal with an overwhelming pain in my jaw. I clinched my teeth because of insecurity and anxiety. Doing so only brought more anguish.

I tried to move but my hands were cuffed. I tried to kick but my legs were tethered with wire. I knew I was in the trunk of a car.I could hear music faintly playing. The words had an eerie sound, but music has always calmed me. I felt I was dreaming, but the car would hit potholes and wake me up to reality. I tasted my silent salty tears from the corner of my mouth. I was paralyzed with a the thoughts of what the future would hold. I wondered if my absence had alerted anyone yet.

As I contemplated my fate I choked on the red dust as he sped down the lonely road to hell. My blood soaked clothes made worse by the night’s chill. In the darkness my trembling fingers searched for a sharp object for defense. I came up empty.

Within the blink of an eye the trunk slung open to the sounds of barking orders. Looking down the barrel while being thrown on the hard, unforgiving ground.

I’ve always been a keen observer of body language. I can tell more about someone by observing them for 5 minutes rather than talking to them for 5 hours. So my intense focus was all I had to save my life.

You wanted me to beg and scream in fear, and to cry in despair. However, that’s when I felt my life could be saved. I knew your need.

You violated my womanly rights throughout the night.

You beat me leaving bruises immediately from each blow. You caused my ribs to shatter. It was hard to breath with each inhale and hurt worse with every exhale. Perhaps that helped me keep my composure. I had to preserve every bit of strength I had as I didn’t move.

Even with the fists that felt like a Mac truck I didn’t utter a sound. With every blow raging into my side I looked away, crumbling inside. I stared away without blinking to each click of the gun to my temple. I was trembling inside with pain and consumed with thoughts of what would happen if the gun went off. Perhaps praying it would.

Ungodly anger filled your fists and tone of your words. I knew it was coming to a head and death was close. I knew I couldn’t take anymore, neither could you.

But I refused to give you my words, that’s all I had left. No one would rob them from me. They ¬†are my bond.

As I lay dying on the blood-soaked ground. You told me to get up. With your soul consumed with anger you set the gun down. I knew my chance was staring at me. Trembling I rose up wiping my blood filled lips.

As you gave a final blow into my gut I went flying into the now dented car door. I whispered, “that’s all ya got?” Kicking my back with your steel toed boots, closing the distance to the gun.

With fumbling hands I grabbed the gun. My teeth chattering because death is near. I shot right past you as you stepped towards me. I demanded you to stop, because I have a conscious.

You didn’t stop…

I was acquitted
It was justifiable homicide.
No one blames me for your death.
You are dead and gone.
However, I’m the one who lives in my own prison.
No matter the circumstance if you take the life of another human being.
It Fucks with your mind.

Sometimes you have to be your own Motherfucking Hero


A Lost Soul 

I listened to this song for 6 months straight ‚̧

Rise up with courage fight the beast
Be brave- Be wild- Or he will feast
His appetite is fierce he won’t give in
Leaving massive scars deep within
Gather up your anguish to fight the savage
Ready for clemency Ready to ravage
Release your heartache to be your drive
Leading to its death but you will survive

Goodbye to You

I wrote a piece with these words back in 2003.

This song is so fitting ‚̧

Let Him Sleep!

I fell in love with this…

Love Big

1

Keep close the hearts that are open wide

Grasp the hands that embrace your side

Strong arms that help you reach for the sky 

Magical souls who are constantly on standby 

Cuddle the laughs that last all night 

Cherish the homes opening with an invite

Hold close those who always make you smile 

Love them all we are only here for a little while 


Carisa Adrienne

I love this song. I don’t understand a word of it but it’s stunning. It’s an amazing video too. He traveled to 42 countries to show love resides everywhere.

The song is from a noble peace prize winning poem.   Enjoy ūüôā

Don’t Stop Believing

Broken Angel(a)

tumblr_n8pjmqTarA1sxfqdyo8_r1_1280

Long chestnut hair with curls that were complete

Big brown eyes and when she smiled it felt like a dream

Dimples so deep you’d get lost in them

Her beauty was the envy of all

She was the oldest of six kids, and I was youngest

She is someone who helped shape my mind and spirit

I remember as a little girl I would see her paint her nails

She held the most beautiful nails

They were always filed and painted

Always perfectly round with shine

I use to sit to the side of the couch and she mesmerized me with her gift

One of the most vivid memories is her walking down the hospital corridor and crying

My heart aching knowing she was broken that day

I felt my eyes filling up with tears

She had just endured a vicious rape and attack

The hospital making her feel violated again to collect evidence

To help capture and prosecute the devil on the run

Her hands were over her eyes not wanting people to discover her

 Perhaps she didn’t want to see the world

All I know is her nails weren’t the same as they were the day before

I had never seen her nails so short

No longer perfectly round

No longer smooth with color

They were jagged and broken

The way I knew she felt within

As well, the way I felt too

Angela

My sister and I share many challenges in our lives

She helped prepare me for struggles no one can prepare you for

She is my perfect Angel(a)

The man who raped my sister was a serial rapist

He was caught after being named one of our cities Most Wanted

Within

You hold the answers within your hands
You carry the dimensions of your plans
You see who is genuine and pure
You have the certainty to feel secure
You believe you can succeed in the end
You realize you can feel and depend
You stand tall when others fall to their feet
You detect the missing pieces to be complete
You know the strength in every scar
You simply need to remember who you are

“Hold Back The River”

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But think that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we’re caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water, won’t you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won’t you let us wander
Let us hold each other

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold

Lonely water, lonely water, won’t you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won’t you let us wander
Let us hold each other
