My Existance My Existence

In the warmth
of a hot August Evening
I became aware of it
my own existence
I had not noticed it before
when Spring was young
morning dew
gently kissed
budding petals
when the songbirds
sang of love
and the sun rose
slowly and steadily
I was not there then
when Summer heat scorched
and the pavement scorched
was I there and no-one...


Broken Wings

Broken Wings Broken Wings
they took away my freedom
they took away my hope
they've kept me in this darkness
where I've had to learn to cope
I've lived with constant guilt & shame
It's been hard to hold my head up high

hollow words and broken promises
bring little refuge to a woman
whose childhood was rippe...


Silence Becomes Her

Depression overcomes me
I fall once again into the abyss of silence
Sometimes pain of things unknown

I need to put down what the mind has erased
But I cannot even see, think or feel anything but blank
Dead scroll memories buried deep within taunt me
