Cold World Blues




Today I was hoping for the sun to shine

was hoping to see it, feel it on this tired face of mine

Today I was hoping for the sun to shine

was hoping to feel it warm this cold heart of mine


The Moon came up like it always does

the stars burned all night against the dark sky- you  know they did

But this morning when I opened my eyes

no Sun burned away, chased away  the  gathering dark clouds above


Today I was hoping for the Sun to shine.

Something has to warm this cold world of mine.

It’s so simple-

finding  out who you are

what lives in your head

what doors to open

what doors to close


It’s so simple-

to be who you are

like who you are

It only goes wrong

when you

stop to ask,

‘ Is this okay’


Daily Post Prompt:Simple


Taken Words

When I write a story I want to smell ink,

I want to see a stack of pages fill up a tray

I want to feel the world I created

word by word in my head.

The internet took all of that away

word by word

Stories cast out into a dark

electronic world

leaving me  in this one to wonder

were they ever here at all?



Daily Prompt: Filter

The Wrong Door


Heavy footsteps

made their way to my door

demanding, insisting, they tread over bones

sleeping corpses

tell me your story, feed me your words

I heard a whisper in my ear

before the scream

tore it’s way

to forever.

Daily Post Prompt: Oversight



Look Out Below



My last little nerve

that runs down my spine

snapped with a twang


hit me in the eye


My poor tired brain

tried to run away

from that angry little nerve

that burned for the last time today


My mouth wasn’t sorry

to see that little nerve go

It had wrapped itself around my tongue

and chocked off all of its words.


When my brain flexed

and it found my mouth and tongue

they all did a happy dance

and cried

” Time to have some fun”
