Poetry

Winter Bulb

Please don’t make me go in that cold damp dirt,

I’m small, and I’m fragile, I know it will hurt.

You’re meant to be planted, you’re a winter bulb,

Only when you blossom, will your story be told.

The weight is too heavy, I can’t hardly breath,

It’s squeezing me tight, please help me, help me, I’m only a seed.

Take in a breath, find your roots, reach down deep,

Look around, and find I’ve given you everything you need.

I’m cracking, I can feel it, please don’t let me die,

Why don’t I believe you? Feeling so lost, I give up, I only cry.

Those tears give you water, just open your eyes,

You’ve cracked cause your sprouting, you’ll soon find meaning in life.

My muscles are clenched, the ground is freezing,

I’m grabbing for something, anything to help my body from seizing.

Where did you go? Why won’t you pull me out?

You promised you’d stay, you said you’d help me to sprout.

You lied and abandoned me, I’m alone and starving, I have no sight,

I reach up for nourishment, I pull hard through the tears and fight.

There’s no hope I can feel it, I’m left alone in my sorrow to linger,

My body’s shut down, all but one last up reaching finger.

Wait, what is that? There’s a small warmth above me,

With every ounce I can gather, I pull up, I have to see.

This must be it, I pull again with all my might,

It’s the sun! I let go of my fears, opening myself to the light.

My colors are beautiful, I’ve dug out through despair,

I’ve been stuck for so long, I can finally relax and take in fresh air.

I’m glad to see you, I have been waiting, so patiently from above,

I’ve dreamt of this day with a smile, I just knew those colors I’d love.

Why did you leave me when I needed you the most?

I begged and I pleaded but you were gone, like a ghost.

On the contraire my sweet seed, I have been here all along,

I nourished the soil, tied your roots down, made the bond.

I blessed you with patience and strength, by giving you time and fear,

The cold all around, made you find warmth inside yourself my dear.

Now that you’ve found your own strength to grow,

You can never be broken, even in the next winters blow.

The seasons will come then leave, sometimes even violently,

You have a long life a head, I will stay with you silently.

I will sit back now, let you reflect on the good in your life,

Take one day at a time, trust in healing, and in the power given with great strife.

Devastation’s Aftermath

Scattered thoughts, they always move

In and out they dance they groove

They come and leave,  so unexpected

Slip through the cracks undetected

Disaster has struck, there’s so much to do

Everything is lost, its gone, askew

Overwhelming moments make time stand still

A life now foreign, can’t cope, can’t deal

All concentration lost to the touch

Floats in a breeze, mind left to mush

The world moves on, while we’re stuck in debris

There’s no where to go, we can’t even flee

Move forward physically, we have no choice

But inside our broken heart, a distant screaming voice

*In reflection of 2017 hurricane season. Please keep the victims of mother nature in your thoughts BEYOND the time its featured in the media. Let our hearts bleed together and heal together as time continues to move.*

Song Lyric Inspiration Day: Good To Be Alive, Andy Grammar

It’s been a while since I posted the lyrics to a song. Today, this one struck a particular chord. Enjoy the words to this insanely inspirational song!

I’ve been grinding so long, been trying this shit for years
And I got nothing to show, just climbing this rope right here
And if there’s a man upstairs, he kept bringing me rain
But I’ve been sending up prayers and something’s changed

I think I finally found my hallelujah
I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
Now all my dreams are coming true, ya
I’ve been waiting for this moment

And it’s good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Hallelujah, let that bass line move ya, say yeah
It’s good to be alive right about now

I was dead in the water, nobody wanted me (Uh huh)
I was old news, I went cold as cold can be
But I kept throwing on coal tryna make that fire burn (Uh huh)
Sometimes you gotta get scars to get what you deserve (Uh huh)
I kept moving on and now I’m moving up (Uh huh)
Damn, I’m feeling blessed with all this love

I think I finally found my hallelujah
I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
Now all my dreams are coming true, ya
I’ve been waiting for this moment

And it’s good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Hallelujah, let that bass line move ya, say yeah
It’s good to be alive right about now

I almost can-, cannot handle it
I could get u-, could get used to this
I almost can-, cannot handle it
I could get u-, could get used to this

I think I finally found my
(Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)

And it’s good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Hallelujah, let that bass line move ya, say yeah
It’s good to be alive right about now

Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Good, good, good, good to be alive right about now
Alright

In my supportive blogger poems One and Two.

Pay close attention you don’t wanna’ miss a thing.

There are so many more and I can’t go on forever,

So if I miss you, I’m sorry, for I’m really squeezing this together!

Cayman Drinks Well With Others, he’s one of a kind,

It’s great to find bloggers with such like mind.

Kristi’s blog is mighty fine,

She loves great books, YA and Wine.

When it comes to Books Books and More Books shes always right!

Giorgiana is a book expert with reviews galore,

Awesome Books Today offers so much more.

I love every promo and tittle over at Book Addict Live.

There’s something there for everyone.

Thank you dear bloggers for reading my crap,

For those that I’ve somehow managed to skip over.

I’ll do this again someday, and I promise to look closer.

Supportive Bloggers, 2nd Poem

I’ve created a beast now it’s time to keep feeding it,

As the first bloggers poem I wrote is still getting hits.

With a hundred fifty views and counting my gratitude grows,

If you could see my face for real, I’m confident it shows.

I’ll start with Jo-Ann and her love of creativity,

She’s positive, uplifting, and so great to me!

Our shared love of books makes me sniffle and sigh,

If you look for well rounded you’ll find it at Inspiration Pie.

Stephanie has the most impeccable liking,

If there is a great YA book out there, she’ll hunt it down like a Viking.

The adventure in this blog is jam packed, a precious vault,

To find a young readers quality, stick with Teacher Of YA.

I can’t go on any farther without throwing Danny in,

If you’re one of his thousands of followers then you’re in for the win.

His posts are inspirational and so very supportive,

If you want a touch of the heart then go now to Dream Big.

I have one more today and Susan is her name,

Or you can call her the twitter dominator, its all the same.

To find the best book reviews, you can never go wrong,

By checking first at Books From Dusk Till Dawn.

The scratching of surface has still only just begun,

Hang tight for poem three, more praises will be sung.

Supportive Bloggers, 1st poem

Blogging is a fickle thing,

It makes you laugh, it makes you think.

There are some that I follow who shine above,

So now it’s time to return the love.

James J Cudney you’re at the top of my list,

I don’t have a single post that you’ve missed.

With enough awards and tags to make a weak blogger bow,

You could say I’m a big fan of ‘This Is My Truth Now.’

Kim could be the kindest blogger I know,

Great things are coming your way if its true, you reap what you sow.

You’re bookish intelligent, and WordPress you’ve shook,

One of my most loved reviewers is By Hook Or By Book.

Felicia Denise you’re so on the ball,

From writing to romance, you deliver it all.

Your site is professional with a beautiful face,

I cherish every like and comment from Nessie’s Place.

Karen is sweet and that’s not to mention,

Everything she writes is with care and intention.

Her words are arguably richer than all of the rest,

If you don’t believe me, go ahead… Put Pen & Paper to the test.

Now just for today I’ve only mentioned four,

But don’t you worry there are much much more.

There are so many to mention so please stay tuned,

Your name could pop up here very soon.

Poem: Sharks, Shysters, Publishing Waste. #indiauthor

Sharks shyster publishing waste,

You hide in shallows, just waiting to taste.

A writer’s blood is sweet and delicious,

When the moment is right you sink your teeth in, you’re vicious.

It’s my very first book, like a virgin I’m new,

But I hold my words sacred, I’m watching for you!

I study, I watch, I compare, and I query,

Excitement is contained until I’m tired and weary.

But don’t you worry my fine tuned sweet piece of writing,

This tired mind of mine wont give up, ’cause you’re something worth fighting.

I’ll avoid the sneaky publishers, the shallow swarming beasts,

I’ll do great by you I promise, you wont be disappointed in the least.

Love your toddler #poem

Slow down mommy, hold my hand.

Hug me now, while you still can.

I’m growing fast, with each new day.

Very soon I’ll push you away.

I’ll do everything on my own, and that’s not to mention,

I won’t want your kisses, your help, or attention.

Love and play with me now while I want you to.

And, please keep you’re patience, I’m only two.

 

 

Photo Prompt #darkpoetry

Outside, the air is beautiful and clear,

But, sadly its so much different in here.

Everything around me is dusty and stale,

This cabin a prison, my personal hell.

I plead and I scream but help doesn’t come.

By shackles I’m bound, I can’t even run.

He dragged me so easily, limp with pills.

To this solitary cabin way out in the hills.

The only door locked and the windows quickly boarded,

My thirst trumps the hunger leaving my vision contorted.

I feel my life slowly fade from limb to limb.

My soul now and forever angrily waits here for him.

This is the first time I’ve ever participated in a photo prompt! Something about this cabin just felt so creepy I couldn’t pass it up! Thanks All About Writing And More  blog, for providing such a great photo!

(P.s.  I blogged this from my phone, so don’t judge me for the poem length. Or lack of, I guess I should say. Afterall, it’s about the motion in the ocean, not the size of the boat… right? 😂…)
