Shadows

Afraid of what’s lurking in the dark

Is it him? Or just a shadow in the wind?

The door cracks open, a short scream escapes

But soon enough, I’m bound and gagged.

Squirming, screaming, trying to run. 

Muscles tense, not yet undone. 

And still no one comes, or hears the noise. 

Now he’s gone, with his sick little joys. 

Hiding in the bathroom, door locked and bound

No words or sounds escape my mouth.

Morning comes, not a single sound.

Secret glances repaint the scene. 

I ran away today, without any notice of my pain.

My story is now told, the truth is out.

No more trusting, not young, not old.

The Journey Begins Today

The morning sun rises, my eyes slowly part.

It’s your face that I see in my heart. 

Awake now, your no where to be found. 

This time only a dream, soon baby we will be reality. 

Loving you keeps me going strong, slowly each day brings you closer to me.

You say the past is gone, but without it we’re all wrong.

You say only the future and what you want to see. 

Does that future still include me?

If the path was easy, baby I would already be there. 

Bare with me, trust I am trying. 

The journey is rocky, the path is long, but someday soon, we will have our own song. 

Only A Dream

Got you on my mind All day and every night

You’ve shown me the way

To bring back my light

But when I look up and I can’t see your face

Makes me wonder who now won the race

Each day slowly I work toward my best

But baby without you I can’t even rest

Life took a turn the wrong direction

Lost for a long time in my own digression

Lost sight of who I used to be

Only you can bring that back to me

To love you I wish were just a lie

Because with you I refuse to hide

Each day new a life should start

Just please baby don’t break my heart

You want reality you want fantasy 

Then baby I got all you need 

For the first time in a long time 

Things truely feel real 

Serenity


Air humid as clouds slowly roll in.

The signs of havoc every where you look.

Hearts racing as the truth unfolds

All the truth we’ve never told

Love is blind and hope is gone

Fixing this just seems all wrong

Broken glass storms a vast

One last cast

Deep breath, hold on tight

Come on baby one more ride  

Is it you? 

Staring off into the shadows, the birds chirp but nothing moves. Not a breeze, not a branch, not a single snap. Slowly the woods start closing in on me. The trees..they start to part. There’s a face there now, staring back at me. Sheer curiosity. Don’t worry, I see you too. Hammer cocked, trigger resting, heart racing with anticipation. Slowly emerging, exquisite beauty. The most startling thing I’ve ever seen. But is this real? Am I imagining? The area begins to darken, your face begins to fade; meet again soon someday. 

Alone..

No stars out tonight, but the moon shines bright through the clouds. Amazement as the light slowly dissipates, leaving only the wind howling and the slight echos from twigs snapping as the trees fight for dominance. “Are you there? Or is this it? Am I truely alone?”Do you even exist… or is it all a show. Each sharp jolt at your finger tips from the on going branch battle as you wind yourself down the dark narrow walk. Mr. Owl chants mockingly as you stumble blind. “Can you see me there, struggling alone? Can’t you hold me and guide me home… Who knew the journey was so long. Who knew I would be so alone.

Working full time mom,

Not a moment of silence. 

This for me is just something doodling brought me to create, I by no means am any kind of drawer. Day to day, seems like a broken record, stuck on repeat. Happiness and dreams being complete is just barely in reach and each day seems a little closer but always out of grasp.
