A GLITCH

Is it a glitch
Have I made a mistake?
Why can’t I get this?
There’s so much at stake.

Try as I may
The files just won’t fit
I’m frustrated, so angry
So disgusted with it.

I’ve tried “pdf’s”
But, that didn’t work
I’ve been down on myself
Feeling like such a jerk.

I’ve labored, I’ve toiled
Tried this and tried that
Wish I was on top of
The basics, the facts.

I’ve tried “hit and miss”
What can I do?
Can’t figure this out
I’m sad, I’m so blue.

“Import” and “export”
“Bundle” and “save”
This better download
What a mess I have made!

Feel like such a fool
I’ve googled and tried
Seven tutorials
I’m so sad, I could cry.

One button to push
That could fix it all
If only I had
Someone I could call.

“Error”, “default”
Appears on my screen
Makes me so upset
Makes me want to scream!

I’m sure it’s a glitch
I’m but one step away
From finding the answer
That could make my day.

SOMETHING REAL

Can’t catch a break
The hits keep coming
Can’t find a way out
Have to keep on running.

Away from the noise
That resides in my head
It keeps me from slumber
It sleeps in my bed.

The constant reminders
The memories that last
Haunting and plaguing
No escape from the past.

Images daunting
No need to recall
The hurt and the pain
The shame of it all.

How to escape
To lose the momentum
The thoughts that consume me
Though I want to forget them.

Over and over
The same loop on the tape
The words that were spoken
They were lies, they were fake.

Delusion and madness
Overcome with pure lust
A chemical imbalance
Between both of us.

Longing for freedom
Consumed with grief
Have to keep faith
I have to believe.

There’s got to be more
Something true, something real
Something better than what
I continue to feel.

HONOR AND GLORY

Living in an alternate reality
Can’t you see he’s off the wall?
He has the sense of a 6th grader
We are clearly in free fall.

His supporters blind, refuse to see
His judgement… clearly flawed
The republicans do what he wants
Have they simply all been bought?

You think it can’t get any worse
Then you find out there’s something more
He incites and aggravates
Wants us all to be at war.

No dignity or morality
Narcissistic and confused
Easily led by dictators
He can’t see… he’s being used.

Going to lose your independence
Your rights and all freedom
He wants to be a dictator
He wants to be just like them.

The honor and glory of America
Should be forefront in your mind
What’s happened to honor and integrity
Why can’t you see the signs?

His judgment is impaired
He has no clue about foreign affairs
When it comes to national security
He simply doesn’t care.

When will you come to your senses?
When it’s all been said and done?
It’s time you realized what he’s about
He is his father’s son.

COLD HEARTED

Do you know what’s happening?
Look straight ahead, can’t you see?
The cold hearted, they seethe with greed
They’re not what they pretend to be.

They continue to hurt and to take
Pillaging is their mission
They’ll destroy and thwart your best plan
They will taint your clearest vision.

They’re calculating and selfish
They are a tribe of sociopaths
When you fall and try and get up
They’ll be there to point and laugh.

All is lost, little you can do
To change the course ahead
A cold stare, some harsh words
And, you’ll find yourself back in bed.

Powerless to their charm and wit
We go thru the countless and endless motions
Wondering if this will ever end
Finding they are devoid of true emotion.

You’re going to get hurt, it’s a matter of time
It may take years before you can break free
You’ll feel like a fool, you’ll feel broken inside
You’ll wonder how did this happened to me?

But, you’re not immune to feelings of love
You were an unsuspecting victim
The trap was set, you wandered in
You couldn’t see the evil in him.

Such a cunning disguise, that look in his eyes
He knew exactly what to do
You innocently fell, under his spell
He had taken control of you.

A FAULTY CONNECTION

I sit and wait
Still wondering why
The door had to close
Why love passed me by.

The loss and the torment
That I have been thru
Can’t change the longing
That I feel for you.

Though years have passed
It’s all still the same
I cringe with heartache
At the sound of your name.

I fall fast asleep
I dream of you
Can’t stop the madness
Don’t know what to do.

I’ve talked to the shrink
I’ve asked her for help
Placed your picture, up there
Up there…high on the shelf.

Out of my sight
And out of my mind
Why have I hung on
After all of this time?

Obsession, delusion
A broken synapse
A faulty connection
A possible mishap.

My heart has been broken
It’s shattered in pieces
It can never be fixed
The pain just increases.

LUNCH WITH A MERMAID

“Come for lunch”, the rabbit said
She’s making seaweed sandwiches
The mermaid and her friend the shark
Don’t mind the wand she brandishes.

No biting, poking or teasing
No reason to be afraid
You’ll enjoy the treats and drinks she makes
Especially the lemonade.

She will delight you with her magic
She is fanciful and fun
You’ll be sad when it’s all over
When the day is past and done.

Can’t be too careful, watch your step
There are snakes and spiders in the yard
No reason for you to wander off
No reason to go too far.

Everything you could want or need
Will appear before your eyes
Hardly a reason to be upset
No reason that you should cry.

Music playing in the background
A harp, a flute, a drum
She will be so happy
So happy you have come.

DON’T LOOK BACK

Don’t look back
Don’t give in
Stay on track
Right to the end.

No regrets
You’ve moved on
What you had
Now is gone.

One door closes
Another opens
Forget the words
You once heard spoken.

Promises made
Have been broken
Time to change
Time to start hoping.

Better days
Straight ahead
No more lies
You’ve pulled ahead.

Don’t turn back
You have gleaned
An open heart
A chance to dream.

In open fields
Lush and green
Where everything
Is as it seems.

No false pretense
No cold remarks
No rolling eyes
No glib remarks.

Arms stretched out
Open wide
No need to keep
Your thoughts inside.

Fairy tales
Do come true
There’s something
Waiting just for you.
