You know you know…..

you know you know

You already know –

You know you’ve

known for ages

But just didn’t

want to look into that ugly face

or go to that ugly place

You knew months ago

when he was angry with you

when all you did

was be excited he was home

and he turned his back

and left you there alone

You already knew

when you could

smell the hint of perfumes

that you know you

don’t wear

Those whispered

phone calls

He doesn’t want you

to hear

You already know –

you know you’ve known

for ages

but just didn’t

want to look

into that ugly lying face

or go to that ugly empty place

Do or Don’t, Can or Can’t

Don't you

Don’t you leave me

left behind

Don’t you cut me

out of your mind

Can’t you see you’re here all alone?

Can’t you hear your heart say

This is home?

Don’t you hurt me for ever more

Don’t you walk away

and leave it all

You can’t hold me like that

then let me go

There’s something more

that you don’t know…

Enhancing you

missingpuzzleperson1

I see

the lonely landscape

of an empty soul

Someone incomplete

Someone who’s not whole

It doesn’t take another person

to make you feel as one

You must just believe in yourself

and something to enhance you

will come

Be Careful What You Wish For

be careful what u wish for

She gazes across

an icy panacea

The kestrel above

calls when he sees her

The sun, though present,

is fractionated

It’s warmth not worth

being appreciated

A tumble of Schnauzers

race to greet her

A ten out of ten

on the Cute-O-Meter

Gazing liquid eyes

desperate to be touched

It was nobodys’ wonder why

she loved them so much

Their little furry faces

had such a lot to say

She couldn’t imagine being

without them

every single day

Although things weren’t perfect

in a very imperfect life

And she would have no more children

and may never be a wife

But the beauty all around her

and the freedom that she loved

Was all that she had asked for

from the Universe above

I can’t help it

I can't help it

Lonely words

on a hungry page

I see you through

a love-drenched haze

I’ll make it through

the crying days

I can’t help it that I love you

Bleeding heart

in a tortured mind

I never thought

You could be unkind

But I ll make it through

the hurting time

I can’t help it that I love you
