I am yours alone

You tell me you love me
I say you don’t know
One day maybe perhaps
You’ll see inside my soul
This ain’t a game we playing
Still I hold your heart
One day if you wanna
Never will we part
Let’s pretend forever
Our love will survive
Making magic happen
Feeling so alive
The best is yet to happen
Everything you do
Keeps us moving forward
A love deep and true
Will you be my always
My one and only
Tell me yes my darling
For eternity
Shout aloud to the rafters
How you love me so
Kiss me through tomorrow
Girl, your world unknown
Will you want me always
Keep me for your own
Pledge the world my darling
I am yours alone

Petty

Petty
I ain’t ready
For real
Tell me
What you think
My life extinct
Nothing is
What it seems
Damn child
You are wild
Your every
Whim
I desire
Still you
Flaunt like
Wildfire
Burning inside
I am denied
Wishes
Like kisses
A penny
Still it misses
Want me to
Like you
Give me something
I can hang on to
Nothing
You say is
Worthy
Of me still
I wish you
Would go away
Bury me
Neath an old
Oak tree
Tell my story
Like history
One day
Maybe
Free of pain
I will look
Again
And see
Neath this soul
Where you left
Me
***

Oh Sister

Slammed
Jammed
What I say
What I am
These decisions
My derision
I am done
So fed up
Ain’t the one
figure it out
I’ve got stuff
things to do
My time worthy
Of more than you
What you put me through
All this shit
Has to stop
Estranged
Deranged
My mind
Succumbs
I find
Rewind
Please bring me back
When I was young
Oh Sister
Deliver
Any chance of
This happily-
ever-after
Won’t you lead?
Call me home
All since you
Left me blue
My heart wants
Only truth
***

So they say

Imagine
A world
Without water
Or Sun
A place like
The desert
Free of love
Take my heart
A candle
In your hands
Filling you
With gladness
History
Disguised
See me in
your magic
mirror like
Wrapped candy
All I have to
Offer you
My sins splayed
Jim dandy
Rock me
Talk to me
Make me feel
Like I am
The girl
Who rules
Tell the truth
No excuse
Let me
Be who you
Need me to be
Unfulfilled
Ridiculed
Longing to see
What I miss
From the man
Who birthed me
Finally
Forever
Free, I am free
Please will you
Stop torturing me
