ALWAYS & FOREVER

Don’t leave me, just yet
You know, I’m not ready
Still holding on
Your heart beats… unsteady. 

Out on a limb
Afraid and alone
Don’t go, I’ll be lost
Can’t find my way home.

My hand held in yours
A frightened young girl
You were everything
You are still my world.

No one there to love me
No one left to care
No one will protect me
You won’t be there.

All my mistakes
Some big and some small
You cast them aside
You’ve forgiven them all.

It won’t be easy
When you are gone
I’ll sit in the garden
Remembering our song.

I’ll hear the music
Won’t forget the words
I’ll look at the flowers
Watch the hummingbirds.

I’ll wear your cap
It matches my skirt
The one that I wear
With your favorite shirt.

Flooded in memories
The years spent together
Don’t want to let go
Can’t lose you forever.

So give me a moment
A minute or two
I just need to tell you
That….I’ll always love you.

BRACE FOR IMPACT

Brace yourself for impact
She’ll soon be coming back
No exit plan or rescue
A savaged planned attack.

A blatant confrontation
Onslaught of cold abuse
Callous lies and torment
That are heading straight for you.

On missile lock, you’re in her sights
No chance to break the spell
Before she’s done, she’ll turn your world
Into a living hell.

Raise your shields for incoming
Do everything you can
Diversionary tactics
Should be ….part of your plan.

Pick up speed, full throttle
Bank left and to the right
Bob and weave, in and out
Grab hold and hang on tight.

FORGOTTEN

A splatter on the pavement
Abstract with shades of blue
My heart engulfed with feelings
Though nothing I can do.

Time passes in an instant
The noise inside my head
Echoes in a chamber
The things you once had said.

Believing every promise
No intention to fulfill
Left alone, bewildered
A loss of faith and will.

A random chance encounter
A glimpse at what could be
The threads in close alignment
Two ships collide at sea.

The smoldering of ashes
The last remnant left behind
You start anew recharged and free
Could I have been so blind?

No looking back for answers
Forgotten, you’ve moved on
No need for painful closure
Replaying what went wrong.

A picture perfect portrait
Enclosed by shards of glass
A feral, cold reminder
Of love that didn’t last.

MISFITS

Watching from a distance
As they pass on by
Some stroll , some saunter
so casually
They make me wonder why.

Why they can’t pick up the pace
Content to take it slow
No interest or ambition
Nowhere they need to go.

Loves to watch, not wonder
Stands idly alone
Staring into blank grey walls
Or floors made out of stone.

The sloth, the snail, the ogre
Reminds me of a troll
Marking time , meandering
Each conflict takes its toll.

They drag their feet, their faces drawn
No sparkle in their eyes
An empty core, all that remains
There’s nothing left inside.

They stagger in resentfully
Disheveled and unkempt
Angry, poised to stand their ground
Consumed with vile contempt.

A life of scorn and heartache
Beseeched by mockery
A lonely cold existence
In need of company.

NOT YET

Too little time, so much to say
It really isn’t fair
It hurts to watch you suffer so
To see you lying there.

I watch and wait, I pray to God
Hoping things will change
But nothing seems to come to pass
It all remains the same.

The lines, the wires and all the tubes
They say it won’t be long
I know that you have tried your best
But, things have just gone wrong.

I hold your hand, so cold and weak
There’s nothing I can do
I feel so sad, so hurt inside
Wish I could rescue you.

Memories of you and I
Pass across my mind
All the things I didn’t say
When I had the time.

Fifty years have come and gone
The good times with the bad
It’s hard to be without you now
I feel so lost, so sad.

They say that what you need is rest
That I should go back home
But it’s so hard… all by myself
To be there all alone.

As I watch you lying there
Struggling for each breath
I know it’s time to let you go
But I just can’t, not yet.

HONOR, PRIDE & LOYALTY

Liars, thieves and takers
No honor amongst men
Where is their sense of integrity?
They lie time and again.

Blindly they will follow
No regard for laws or rules
Ignoring The Constitution
A slew of blithering, ignorant fools.

All about the money
Their lobbyists, their seats
They will do most anything
To be with the elite.

All the lies and trickery
The schemes behind closed doors
Always an agenda
That’s what they’re looking for.

They’ve sold out to the devil
Members of the trumpster’s cult
No honor, pride, or loyalty
No concern for end results.

They’re stripped of any decency
Can’t believe a word they say
Misleading and despicable
Never thought I’d see this day.

America, our country
Home  of the loyal and brave
Now led by partisan law breakers
Oh what a mess they’ve made.

They’ve given into pressure
Led down the golden path
Promises of wealth and fame
A life of lies and graft.

It’s now up to the people
Take to the polls, the streets
Stand up, speak out, and tell the truth
Take back your sovereignty.

WANNA DANCE?

Out on night maneuvers
He hits the clubs and bars
Some take the train from Jersey
Some head over by car.

He scans the room for takers
The naive and vulnerable
Gets missile lock, then makes his move
On the sweet and gullible.

Wanna dance? “Sure”, they say
They’re victims of his charm
They’re dying to go home with him
No need to twist their arm.

Only the successful
No time for non achievers
Money is his prime concern
Professionals are keepers.

Mirroring and love bombing
The tricks… tricks of his trade
No chance of turning this around
No chance of being saved.

They will gladly follow
Do anything he says
His goal and prime objective
To get them into bed.

Once they fall, and fall they will
In love and lust with him
He’ll do…just what she always does.
He’ll turn his back on them.
