THE WIFE

THE WIFE

based on the story written by Washington Irving     She danced in a golden chamber Glittering, warm and fine Down her ears dangled emeralds On her dress embedded nine    She’d always been vibrant Filled with love and life I’d promised a glad eternity When I took her as my wife   She loved me too, this well I knew The ministering angel so kind Her warmth embraced my heart, my hearth When with

“TALK TO ME”

“TALK TO ME”   She looks around her world A friend to speak, she seeks She is a broken girl Scared, confused and meek   The ones she finds around Mock her and push her away She cries but makes no sound In this life she has no say   Her thoughts run in her head They want to shout and bounce and jump She holds them tight instead In her soul they form a

PASSAGE – FROM LIFE TO LIFE

PASSAGE – FROM LIFE TO LIFE

PASSAGE – FROM LIFE TO LIFE   Here, I leave my fleshed cage and move past the drab confines of life Severing the threads of mortal affair A father, a mother, a child, a wife   Is it the end?

FEELINGS – a ballad

FEELINGS – a ballad   His blood boiled at an unusual pace, His brows upturned on his face, He clenched his fists till his knuckles turned white, He wanted to cry, but knew it wasn’t right.   He shunned mankind and withdrew to his shell, He wanted revenge, but nothing rung a bell. He wanted them to feel the things he felt, To cackle loudly, when in front of him they knelt.   He paced
