If the night falls
and the serpents rise
if the moon calls
as the sparrow cries
the water will lay flat
but if the night stills
and the shepards sleep
the moon will sing
of perfect dreams
and the winds will come back
for the dark is beauty
and the stars are lights
bringing dreams to the sleeping
to enjoy the peaceful nights
Born in California
raised in Illiniois
a national girl
just one of the boys
living in Arizona
and missing home
with an ice cream cone
sipping Coca Cola
and dandelion bracellettes
never meeting a stranger
seeing friendly faces
choosing small towns
over many places
watching the flat land
chase the sky
running across the plains
catching fire flies
going to the mall
laughing all the way
back to Jacksonville
wearing cut-off jeans
in the humidity
staring at the stars you
don't get in the city
from Jacksonville lake
going to Nicolas Park
with chocolate milkshakes
swimming in the pool
for hours on end
getting a sun burn
after your swim
going to Community Park
for a Civil War event
taking pictures with
the military men
going to grandma's
pout when I have to leave
at the end of the day
visit my aunt and uncle
to play some games
go to a school where
I know everybody's name
attend Grandpa's church
on a Sunday morning
have some fun singing
along with the worship
wake up to a winter
having a fort, and
knowing I made it
climbing up fifty foot trees
and staying up there
hiding in the greens
playing in the rain
during the spring
curled in a blanket,
riding down the
open dirt roads
picking wild flowers
wherever I go
now I sit in the desert
with all I know
and I miss the snow
I look out at the
thinking of green
and it hurts
my skin red with
a desert burn
feeling the spurn
the cactus pricks
feeling alone in
the world I'm in
the sun beats my
I look out the window
and miss the trees
that used to be lovely
I close my eyes
and remember the chill
of a winter's blanket
beautiful and still
I remember the open skies
and April showers
the smell of freshly cut
the faces that used to
bring me home
and I no longer
I think of all the
the winter's cold
and summer's warm
the face of every
girl and boy
and I'm back in
I hear the night call out my name.
Knowing it's crazy, but still feeling sane.
I leave my bed and step outside.
The wind caresses my face as I enter the night.
Silence greets me with a maternal care.
The wind playfully messes with my hair.
The moon illuminates the scene around me.
The light milky as the night surrounds me.
I feel the embrace of the night.
Filling my body with an aching delight.
I yearn to press deeper into the unknown.
Feeling a night that only I own.
Birds slumber within the trees.
I walk into the moonlight with grace and ease.
Cats match my even pace.
Rubbing my ankles with each soft face.
The purring soothes my inmost being.
The shadows keep my emotions reeling.
I walk down a path towards what I don't know.
It calls to me in a seductive voice so gentle and slow.
I squint in the dark to see what's ahead.
My soul surging, no longer dead.
A figure at the end of the path.
A beautiful creature without hate and wrath.
He embraces me in a familiar way.
Holding me until the night turns to day.
A friend can open up many doors
And stay there with you evermore
A sleeping companion through the night
Filling your dreams with much delight
A gentle hand to guide your way
A loyal guardian that doesn’t stray
The hand that holds when tears are shed
A supportive effort when wounds have bled
A shoulder needed when pain is there
A heart that loves with maternal care
An everlasting memory to always cherish
A love you pray will never perish
Our minds are joined; our hearts complete
You’re the greatest friend I’ll ever meet
Snowflakes fall like gentle rain
They melt across my windowpane
The moon illuminates a starry sky
With such peace i find it hard to cry
A shooting star streaks across the night
It leaves behind a subtle light
A slight breeze sends a chill down my spine
The shooting star leaves behind a silver line
Could there be more a perfect bliss?
With the light, it's this feeling i'll miss.
Christmas is a time to celebrate.
Christmas, somehow, is never the same.
It's a time to be with the people you cherish.
The day you pray will never perish.
You spend it with your family.
I pray you spend it happily.
A day to leave all your cares behind.
A day to finally settle down and unwind.
A day to see the time fly by.
A day i pray we never say goodbye.
A night spent beneath the night sky
as you watch the snowflakes dance beneath the streets lights.
And watch as the fire place fades into a low ember.
And as you lie in the arms of the person you love, it's the moment you pray will last forever.
I pray that my boss doesn't fire me.
I prayer a better job hires me.
I pray that church will be over soon.
I got something to do in the bedroom. *wink wink*
I pray that smoking won't end my life.
I pray for a mute button for my wife.
I pray my order for Playboy goes through.
I hear they got twins for the cover for June.
I pray my UTI goes in my favor.
I pray you won't mind my behavior.
I pray that annoying dog next door will die.
It's been giving me many sleepless nights.
And as I bring this to an end,
I pray I'll wake up tomorrow...
Have you ever noticed cloudy days?
How everything slows down and nobody is rushed?
You can take your time, nothing's in disaray.
The outdoors are a perfect temperature.
The atmosphere is calm, tranquil.
You can go about your day with leisure.
Nobody is rushed or agravated.
You can sit outside and look at the sky.
No need to be irrational and hated.
The animals are even affected.
They go about their day with more grace.
They do it slowly. They have no need for haste.
I love cloudy days. I love sitting outside in the quiet.
Breathing in the soothing air.
Writing down my feelings, Writing about my days.
Writing about the real things.
Everything is bearable, I love cloudy days.
You look in the mirror
you hate what's there
I wish you'd see it clear
did ya miss the sparkle in your eye?
you hear your voice
you want to plug your ears
it doesn't sound like noise
have you heard yourself sing?
you want to burn all your clothes
you hate what size you wear
if it's your size
no one else needs to know
would you rather be
you hate the chances passin by
you want a chance to excell
then take a chance for once in your life
i'll help you if it backfires
you want your time to shine
but instead you hide in the dark
i'm tellin you now, this is your time
i'll hold your hand till you don't need me
You're beautiful without a doubt
or don't you see?
Feel the sun, feel the sky.
Feel the wind pass you by.
Know your move, know your strength.
Know i won't allow your heart to break.
See below, see the light.
See what you know can be right.
Sense the feel, sense what's there.
Sense that i am always here.
Feel the rock, feel the sun.
Feel the wind pass by as you start to run.
Know your place, know your move.
Then you won't have nothing to prove.
You are right, you know you.
There's nothing no one else can do.
Feel you're free, feel the call.
Fly up high, don't ever fall.
Run away, run you're free.
Run to live there happily.
Leave all pain, that's the plan.
Don't you ever look back.
The birds sing out a siren's song.
Let them lead away from it all.
The wind pushes you straight.
Go, it's not too late.
Don't look back or you'll turn to stone.
You must walk this walk alone.
You no longer need to fall.
The morning will come with a magic call.
