BEWARE OF STRANGERS

So easy for you
You’ve done this before
You’re always looking
For something more.

A feeling that’s better
That takes you higher
The thrill of the chase
Sets your heart on fire.

You don’t consider
Who’s left behind
The casualties
That lose their minds.

You don’t look back
No second thoughts
The height of emotion
So easily bought.

Gems and roses
The caviar
Meetings with you
Take place at the bar.

Champagne…. a toast
A toast to you
And all the women
You’ve made love to.

That charm ….. so cunning
Who knew I’d fall
Just one of many
Can’t count them all.

Beware of strangers
The dangerous ones
Not every thief
Will carry a gun.

Guard your heart
Your soul, too
She’ll take what she wants
When she comes for you.

SICK AND TIRED

You lied to me
It wasn’t fair
Behind my back
You didn’t care. 

You played around
I should’a known
I’m not the one
Who’s always stoned. 

I wasted time
Time spent with you
I didn’t know 
What else to do?

You have  your friends
You have your wine
I’m  sick and tired
Of all the lying.

Don’t call me up 
Don’t try and text
Don’t hit me up
For late night sex.

I’m through with you
I got my stuff
There’s nothing else
I’ve had enough.

FORGOTTEN

 
Cast aside
What could I do?
Came out of nowhere
We were through.

Couldn’t fight
Or make it stop
Felt so confused
Knew I was fucked.

All our plans
What just happened?
All the promises
Now forgotten.

All the things
I felt inside
Could barely speak
I wept …. I cried.

Like a child
I felt so helpless
No reply
I was so jealous.

So deeply crushed
I couldn’t breathe
I heard you say
“You need to leave”.

“She’s moving in
You have to go!”
Why so  cold?
Why so low?

The words …. like echos
Kept repeating
My heart was broken
I was bleeding.

You didn’t care
Pushed me away
Told me to go
To leave that day.

CRUSHED

I felt sick
What could I do?
Out of nowhere
We were through. 

Couldn’t fight it
Was in shock
Felt so confused
Knew I was fucked.

All our plans
What just happened?
All the promises
All  forgotten.

All the things
I felt inside
Could barely speak
I sat and cried.

Like a child
I felt so helpless
Had no comeback
I was so jealous.

So deeply crushed
I couldn’t breathe
I heard you say
“You need to leave”.

“She’s moving in
You have to go”
Why so  cold?
Why so low?

The words like echos
Keep repeating
My heart is broken
It won’t stop bleeding.

DREAMS COME TRUE

You’ve been trying so hard
It’s been  too long
You go through the motions
But something is wrong.

Deep  in your heart
There’s an aching inside
A void to be filled
That’s making you cry.

You push and you pull
You stay the course
But you’re tired of that feeling
So down ….. and so bored.

Who’s there for you
When you come home at night?
Who’s there to hold you?
Who turns off the light?

Time’s slipping by
You need a change
So  quit that job
Start  over again.

Behind the counter
Hidden from view
For far too long
Who could see you?

New faces … new places
A brand new routine
A brand new future
You deserve to be seen.

New friends …. and adventures
Are waiting for you
Your hopes and your dreams
Are about to come true.

NEVER THOUGHT

Never thought I’d lose you
Thought we would be friends
Thought I ‘d get to see you
If only now and then.

Maybe at a concert 
A play or a cafe
You’d be having coffee
Sitting there …. that very day.

But I never got to see you
It wasn’t meant to be
You left your old apartment
You moved on …. but without me.

Now you’re just a memory
A single moment in time
I wasn’t what you wanted
You had changed your mind.

Never thought I’d ever lose you
Hard to accept the truth
That I am better off 
Better off …. not seeing you.

WALKING IN CIRCLES

Out in the cold
Left all alone
Feeling the pressure
Down to the bone.

The guilt and the shame
Knowing you’re gone
All that I did
To make this go wrong .

You’ll never know
How much  I cared
I waited too long
So nervous …. so scared.

Walking in circles 
Running around
Looking for something
That can’t be found.

No second chances
No apologies
No explanations 
You’re done with me.

Can’ t change your mind
Can’t change the past
Would do anything
To get you back.

CORRUPTION

Liars …. thieves and cheaters
In government positions
No honor or integrity
Among these politicians.

Following a leader 
Devoid of moral virtue
Who only cares about himself
Who doesn’t care about you.

Anger …. lies …. hostility 
A master of corruption 
He wants the system to implode
Delights in the destruction.

Has no respect for democracy 
Objects to the rule of law
Doesn’t want to follow orders
Won’t adhere to protocols.

A clear and present danger. 
Loves to muddle up the facts
Thrives on retaliation 
But true courage? …. That he lacks.

Organized the planned attack
Upon the Capitol Building
Doesn’t care who gets hurt
Condones the theft and killings.

He may not be convicted
Though he has been impeached
But New York State will be there
To prosecute this creep.

TRAP AND RELEASE

I let you pet me
What did you do?
Where are my kittens?
I trusted you.

Against my will
I’m in a rage
Why would you trap me?
Put me in a cage?

Now unprotected
Alone and afraid
My kittens defenseless
What a mess …. you have made.

Don’t want this procedure
I’m feeling so scared
I thought that you loved me
I thought that you cared.

This is a nightmare
A chamber of horrors 
I’m begging you
Take off this cone collar.

I want to come home
Please set me free
How did this happen
Happen to me?

COLD AS HELL

You’re cold as hell
And I’m on fire
Filled with longing
And desire.

You pull away
Won’t let me in
I keep trying
Time and again.

Nothing matters
Without you
Don’t know how 
To get through.

Hard as stone
Can’t penetrate
No way in
You locked the gate.

Deep within
Down to  the bone
Can’t reach you
You’re not at home.

Miles away
Worlds  apart
I’m left with
A broken heart.
