Darkness Loses On a Good Day December 29, 2012

Happiness Shines in Darkness

On a good day

I wear an aura of happiness

draped around my tan shoulders

like a cape

The darkness is banished

to the deepest recesses of my soul

like a dungeon

The acidic bubbles that try to escape

are quickly consumed by happiness

like a cancer

There is a struggle raging

within me between darkness and light

like a war


today is a good day





Like Poor Little Alice December 3, 2012

My thoughts bouncing around inside my brain

make me feel like I’ve finally gone insane.

Hours drag by and life just seems so crazy

My whole world seems out of focus, gray, and hazy.

No one seems to really understand

I don’t even know how it got so out-of-hand.

Please know that, in my heart, I’ve always meant well

I just somehow took a wrong turn, see, then I fell

like poor little Alice, down a hole, dark and deep

All I want to do is just lie down and sleep.





Nature Speaks to My Soul April 3, 2012

the bright yellow rays of sunbeams

feed energy deep into my weary soul

awakening and reviving my spirit

giving me hope for better days to come


dripping aqua-blue raindrops

cleanse my spirit of wicked demons

bathing my soul in a soft purity

wiping the slate for a new beginning


cool, crisp, early morning breezes

blow stale cobwebs from my brain

clearing my dark thoughts away

only leaving room for brightness


I am at my most serene

when nature speaks to my soul

giving me back a peaceful existence

ready again to face the human race






Happiness in the Sun March 24, 2012

a soft gentle wind caresses my cheek

while the warm sun kisses my hair

whippoorwills call each other by name

and the carpet beneath my feet changes

from crunchy brown to soft green

right before my eyes.

tight moist buds begin to unfurl

as newborn colors burst into life

hues of pinks, reds, greens, and yellows

spring forward in a tangled mass

as nature puts on her party dress.

the sun warms my cold winter bones

and heats my skin as a sigh escapes my lips.

Each night after politely working the 9  to 5

she runs inside to slip off her office-wear

tosses aside her brown sensible shoes

and dons the garb of her nights.

Her hair flows down her back in loose curls

body encased in black leather and lace

makeup outlines her flashing eyes and  pout

stilettos add six inches to her form.

Within the hour she struts into a new bar

wearing her armor to guard her heart

she scans the throngs of beautiful people

waiting to be accepted into the crowd.

Many hours later she finds herself

in a strange room with a new unknown man

she tip toes away from his snores

and silently slips into the night.

She feels the red-hot hatred build up inside

hating him for making promises and using her

hating herself more for what she had done

knowing it will repeat again and again.


You and I March 17, 2012

When you and I are together

our souls melt into one.

I become you and you become  me

as our bodies glisten in the sun.

Our hearts pound in unison

as your hungry mouth finds mine.

Your fingers dance on my skin

and send shivers down my spine.

When you and I are together

it’s as if the heavenly angels sing.

You will never know because words can’t convey

the happiness and joy that you bring.
