A collection of short poetry, containing things that fit all moods.

When I laugh, I hear a cry.
When I cry, I see a light.

When I write, however...
Nothing is ever real.

Falling and Falling

 

My words, young one,

hold a simple truth:

When your life has come undone,

And there seems to be no sun.

 

Imagine the light at the end of each day,

The stars in the nighttime sky.

And pray little one, I tell you to pray.

And you just might fly when you just might fall.

 

The Day it Comes Together

 

My children, my children, gather 'round the chair!

Today's the day I tell you beware!

You look at me bewildered,

Indifferent and cold as stone.

 

But heed my words with need, dear ones!

For when it comes together,

There is nothing left to do!

Stop searching for a way out, it's always never there!

 

Crazy crazy, old mother dear

You call me crazy, for a penny

You think that I tell lies!

I tell you sons and daughters, it has now come together!

 

When it comes together, there will be rainy suns!

It will be blisteringly cold!

Your ice cream will melt while it freezes!

Heed my warnings, little children, ehwn it comes together!

 

For when it finally does,

and the flames of joyous trials die,

you'll sit back and think of what is left to do,

but there is nothing to be done.

 

When it comes together.
