365 Days of Poetry: Day Three-Hundred and Forty-Eight

when I was a young girl.
there were many lives.
went down three paths.
at the same time.

foundation rickety.
avoided the truth.
and now convergence.
is the one thing to strive for.

fifteen to life, and ticking.
fifteen to life to blow.
wasting time.
though it’s fifteen to life to go.

Laughing too hard to write any more of this. Made up a dirtier version of this chorus earlier at work, but I think riffing on the song in general is responsible for the cackles.

365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Forty-Five

here, the cats and I.
are the wakeful ones.
around the corner.
down the street.
I am sure more are alive.
dancing along to.
something old, something new.
for once I will embrace.
the options of a.
new start, new heart.
those who repeat history.
are doomed to fail.
over and over again.

no need to fall for.
the same old tricks again.
knowing the problem is half the battle.
guilt can’t faze me now.
I’ve come back haunted.


365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Twelve

Inspired by this meme from WtF.

I am not a proper princess.
no glass slippers here.
I’d break them in a minute.
cause I don’t see so clear.

I am not a proper princess.
no frilly dress or lace.
I’d spill my coffee on it.
cause I missed my face.

There used to be a throne.
made of rocks and trees.
I sat on it, alone.
high above the creek.
They say it always rises.
but I know how to shove.
This princess of the tomboys.
still doesn’t know how to love.

I am not a proper princess.
no kissed frog here.
I’d break him in a minute.
cause I don’t see so clear.

I am not a proper princess.
and I don’t need a crown.
smother me in paper.
I really like the sound.
