Standard

Behind the cage
Cries out her rage
Wings fluttering
The sky thundering
The beat of her heart

Then from the floor
He opens the door
Letting her soar
Trapped no more
Singing her way to the sun

Tomorrow

Standard

He sits in the same place
Sadness etched on his face
Wooly covering his head
Eyes looking dead into the sky
Wondering why
He cannot fly
Above the plight he’s facing
The storm he’s weathering
Sunshine or rain
No end to this pain
If only he knew
Just what he could do
To make it through
To another day
Get away from yesterday
Today he prays for tomorrow

Hot Tub

Standard

Steaming
Hot Tub
Laid back
Eyes closed

Mind
Wandering
Floating
To worlds unknown

Plug pulled
Yesterday
Washed away
Its hurt
Its pain
Gone down the drain

A lighter, brighter
Day ahead
Instead
Its time to get out
Until I run it all over again

Don’t Wake Me

Standard

Laying in my favourite place
Under my head a cloud of comfort
Over me a shroud of warmth
Above me an Angel keeping watch
Around me a globe of safety and worth

Don’t wake me from this ecstasy
I’m exactly where I want to be
I don’t require your company
I have all I truly need
Right here
Right now
This moment
This time
Is it a crime
To stay here forever
For me never

Before me are hopes and dreams
Hidden mysteries planted in my heart
From this i’ll never part
So don’t wake me
For I’m exactly where I long to be

Yum

Standard

Behind the dark brown wrapper
Lays a sumptuous bar like no other
Bursting with life on the tongue
Rating second to none
My guilty pleasure
Wanting your taste forever
Desiring to finish you never
A delightful craving
My safe haven
Too much of you not clever
Yet we belong together
Yum
