the lamp
waiting
for a spark
to light
it up.

often,
it is
another’s flame
that lends itself
to brighten
one’s dark.

the world is doing it
so why not me
searched the net
like everyone else
for words of praise
but found pictures galore
in the worst poses ever
ways to exterminate
written about even more
my heart ignored
my perseverance punished
no design flaws exist
wonder why my positives
the two legged ignore
some makeup required
like all others maybe
but try find a better
life survival coach
than the little ugly me
they so lovingly call
the disgusting roach!

The mirror –
reflections
of a physical truth

She stood in front
looking at
the lines of age
a press and a pull
the seeming canyons
refusing to budge

Then a hand
touched her shoulder
a familiar voice
whispered
from somewhere
close behind

You are beautiful-
always were

Somethings change,
love –
it remains the same.

she walks confident
her stride energetic
head up, held high
the world immaterial
to a shield held forth
protecting the little girl
hiding deep inside
hurt by a callous world
for being herself
afraid now of even
the smallest ray
reaching out to her
from the depths of
another broken lamp
and someday I hope
the three shall meet
the wielded shield
will somewhere crack
for not every ray
is a sword to harm
some do to come in
with a healing balm.

the Chef

images.jpg

 

Cook a recipe in your head
sugar it, spice it, to your taste
relish it to the maximum that you can
Open your eyes, emptiness still exists
some concoctions are good
in the realms of the mind
But, when reality strikes
you know somewhere deep within
that those that just simmer
in the pots as thoughts
creations of an imaginative genius
to feed your starving soul
maybe those that may never
fill your empty plate
and feed the hunger
lurking between your arms
And those times of knowing
my dear Chef, are good times
to let some perfect recipes go.
