I'm in peril as soon as I'm in my mother's womb
Unsure of whether I'll ever see the doctor's room
And even if this world I'm allowed to see
It's like stepping into a hive full of bees
My brother gets new clothes while a get a broom
When the guest come, I'm locked up in the room
Being denied education because they feel it's of no use
It's my own blood who does this; who should I accuse?
I'm beaten up by my own father
"You won't get food if you don't work harder!"
I'm married off and sent away
I'm to be my in - law's slave till my hair turns grey
Dowry is another thing they torture me for
I weep at night while my husband snores
I try for jobs though I'm always denied
"You have talent but the job is full" The manager lied
Beaten black and blue by my drunk husband
I have no clue what I did to offend
The feeble rays of sunshine during monsoon describes my life
I don't think it will be long before I pick up the kitchen knife
For I will finally attain peace resting in my grave
It's better to be dead than to be the world's slave
I've told you that I love when you pass your hand in my hair and going down my back until it stops at my waist? It chills me all. Or when you surprise me biting my cheek? I pretend to be angry because you know I hate it, but deep down, I like. Even when you close my jacket because my neckline is very bold, even if I am with a turtleneck. And when you go to the bathroom and makes sure to kiss me and warn me that you will soon come back to me. It makes me so safe. When you need to leave, you wish me goodnight and when going away, take my heart along, only to return it when I see you again.
ive been up all night
playing this over in my head.
i had a good day.
i hadn't thought about you once.
but then i looked up.
you turned the corner,
i turned red.
the hair on my body stood up.
i wanted to scream
or punch you right in the jaw.
i watched you notice me.
the corner of your mouth crept up,
you looked me up and down.
you were taunting me.
i think you laughed a little.
i swear i could read your mind in that moment.
"ha, i broke you.
i can see it all over your face."
he looked at me
as if i were in a million tiny pieces
or my skin was melting
making a mess on this floor
right underneath the both of us.
and you were gone
before i even knew how i felt about it.
but that's how it always went, anyways.
Looking in the mirror tonight
I am 24 years old
I don't know what to make of myself
Pointed chin, seashell ears, hair wet and arcing
forwards from my shower
I'm wondering about my 25th year;
will it be a year of wonders, a golden year?
My left eye says no
It's distrustful, mirrored and shuttered
so all you get back is yourself
There's a siren and a dog howling counterpoint:
My right eye looks more hopeful,
like it'll wink conspirationally at any moment
Better to have a star for an eye than the moon,
I wish I could be
so invisible and free
then none cold grasp me
Dunes do change daily
so you guide by stars at night
for winds of change blow
She howls like banshees
through the tress barren of leaves
this seasons favourite
Blow the ship ashore
give the captains crew mercy
not fast to the rocks
Sweet winds blow your hair
oh how beautiful you look
as it flutters wild
Bird song in high winds
I am sure you will hear none
for it takes all song
Capsized is the yacht
three trapped in a air pocket
will any survive
It is so cold here
damp with a lack of fresh air
can not die in here
By open window
I greet you with a deep breath
oh glory to you
Carbon is airborne
atoms that are carried in the air
breath someone today

An angel came to me and pulled me out of the dark.
He made me feel loved, and mended my broken heart.
He sings me love song, songs i'd love to sing
I was treated a Queen so I treated him King.
The sunshine that I have in life, yes, there were.
Rainbows and flowers can be seen everywhere.
His eyes as they speak in miine
As if it's always a valentine
His clasps were my shelter, my security, my shield
His kisses were treasured, as if with them, love were sealed.
His fingers that runs through my hair
is like a cool breeze in the air.
He made me stand up again, yes, once more
Made me believe, that there's such forevermore
His smiles, kills me, melts my heart
But now, they were dream because we still fall apart.
Fallen Angel, yes, I am.
For I am an angel fell for a man.
Fallen Angel, yes, he is.
Becase he's now gone as quick as a kiss
Fallen Angel, yes, I am.
Maybe my halo, disappeared again.
Fallen Angel, yes, he is
Because he fell apart, maybe I turned to a beast.
Fallen Angel, yes I am.
For I am still inlove with that same man.
Fallen Angel, yes he is
For I let him go, and now, I SO MISS :(
And choir practice is over
and you and the others
leave by the vestry door
and look at the night sky
and she says
wait a while
and so you wait
while the others
towards the cars
or for the long walk
down the drive
from the church
and you see her there
in the moonlight
and she is standing
by one of the graves
and you go to her
and she draws you
to her and you kiss
and the warm lips
are on yours
and she has
her arms around you
and you smell
and feel her there
her body close
her hands touching
and her lips
and you touch her
and sense her
and it's as if
time has stopped
and nothing else
is in the world
except you and she
and the moonlight
and that slight wind
and her fingers
through your hair
and your hand
and no thoughts
none of that stuff
just you and she there
and the kissing
and time moving
but you both unaware
that some other guy
would have her
and marry her
and that cancer
would take her off
into its deadly grasp
and there was moonlight
and she saying
she loved you
and you saying words
that floated there
and her lips
soft as cotton
and her tongue
and O boy
that was hot
in the dark hours
when her shadow
do you see
Home screams "42!" in red and white
Push it to the side
I have no time tonight
We are all separate, but wholly one
They are all separate, but wholly one
Father, Ghost, and the Son
Strange meetings in the middle of everything
Stare at the ground,
while your gaze starts to sting
How old are you?
How old am I?
Why did you grab my leg?
How did you notice my movements?
Where are you?
I want nothing to do with tomorrow.
Because self pity of today is overwhelming.
Knowing better doesn't change the actions
And my hip wants to pop out of its socket
On the streets of whe'ever the fuck in Oregon
Loss and gain
Measure the same, but one feels so much
heavier than the other.
Push beads back
Hold her hair back
The only difference is sharing loneliness with another
I'm not saying that I understand, fully what's happening here.
[Soul searching, or so I've been told]
But I know that you and I are worlds apart.
Is there this great of a disconnect between the rest of the world and I?
Because the Internet
"Don't you ache from all you carry? It could be light, easy."
A little kiss on the spine. A fractured sigh in the blue dark.
"Its become my whole body. Where on earth could I set it down?"
Thunder rolls up her silk stockings.
Rain lets down the fringe of her hair.
Somewhere, a reptile is unwinding,
its old skin left in the long grass.
"Love, let it loose. Give it to me."
Girls with long hair
Who cut their hair
And have short hair.
And girls who have prettier sisters.
And girls who are prettier than their sisters
But their sisters are smarter
And sometimes they don’t have sisters
And they are just self centered.
But I guess my brothers are smarter and better looking than me
So it doesn’t even make a difference.
