Sometimes

Sometimes
When we are drowning
In our fear
We cling so hard
The rescuer
Has to let go.
If we are willing
This act of bravery
Can teach us
How to let go
And save ourselves.

My Heart's Desire

I love the sound of idling diesel
Its purring whisper soothes my soul
A long-nose Pete
Comes down my street
My knees get weak and shaky.
There's something about
Raw power within
That sets my soul on fire.

Coffee Shop

The man in the coffee shop
Watched young millennials
Swarm 'round his table
Intent on their Iphones
Insistently Instagramming
Obliviously obscured.
They tweeted their Twitters
Snapped silly selfies
Consumed carefree coffee.

The man in the coffee shop
Rubbed a silver coin
Held back his desire
For Jack instead of Joe
And won the battle

For today. 

I'm not here to bite

I'm not here to bite
I just want to write

The Muse is strong in you

I pour out Myself
Bottom drawer and top shelf

For all the world to see

It's scary as hell
But you tell me Oh Well

Do it anyway

You challenge and push and temper me
Unveiling my talent so I can see

The Way to find my Voice
I've never had a choice

Before.

You.

You.

Chewed me up and spit me out
My exoskeleton’s on the floor

Amongst the blood and mess I see
Something that looks more like me

Harshest muse I’ve ever known.

What is This Place

What is This Place?

I cannot tell just where I am
I’ve lost my mind somewhere back there.

Turn left three times on bended knee
Walk backwards thrice on tossed debris

Skirt through valley and dance in town
Wearing only your best night gown

Now stop the traffic in a jam
Open wide and holler WHERE???

That is how you’ll find me.
