The Song That Leads Me To You

29 Aug 2021 1 minute read 0 comments redheadblues

I think we have a song The kind that races the pulses The kind that causes arrhythmias And curdles old blood   I think you are an anomaly The sort that I don't know how to proceed So I take measured steps, wade in, then out, take a breath Return to s...

What Am I If Not Desirable?

29 Aug 2021 1 minute read 0 comments redheadblues

I do Think about you Every day I wondered what you were up to If you thought of me too Were you just as obsessed Or have I finally dropped the marbles   I've been playing a game for two The number should be higher than that I need to account for both...

When? Is the Question

29 Aug 2021 1 minute read 4 comments emily2u

As the skies open upAnd down pours the rain.I look up, tears washed awayBut still much felt is the pain. Life with its twists and turnsMany a challenge I have to face.Feeling small, feeling weak, insignificantLeft far behind in the race. I stumble, I...

Mysteries of Life

When times are toughAnd your days sour as lime,When you're hard-pressed for a laughIn your pocket nary a dime...When the path ahead is long and darkAnd your thoughts are jumbled,Like the lost kid in the parkTaking every step tumbled...Put your head d...

Virtual Love

One quiet night, unexpectedly,Met you in cyberspace.Then, feelings developed mutually,History, my lonely days. ‘Tis fulfilling when you’re online,Sharing my deepest thought.If shocked, you show no sign,Instead, delight you’ve brought. There’s no prej...

Out of the Darkness

26 Aug 2021 1 minute read 0 comments emily2u

Out of the darkness,And into brightness,I emerged from a hellhole,Which nearly took my soul. Thank God for the pardon,The lockup, my Armageddon.Got out in the nick of time,Or I’m not worth a dime. Escaped from the gallows,Came out of the shadows,Clea...

Numbed

25 Aug 2021 1 minute read 4 comments emily2u

Tiny prickly sensationsNumb my mind.Devoid of emotions,Fail to unwind. Feel half-paralyzed,No command over the body.This state can’t be analyzed,Checked by everybody. If I have a choice,Won’t go for daily meanderings.Can’t be penetrated by noise,As I...
