Mothers Day Conundrum
Anna Vigue May 2015
Mothers day is fine
I don't mind it
not one bit
except when TV tells me
to buy up gifts n' ****

I really love my mother
I love her every day
so if I spend some money
will it be better
love to play?

If I buy her pretty flowers
or a fancy Ipod case
will she think that I so love her
more than words
could ever say?

How 'bout I draw a picture
just like the good ol' days
or make her something special
like an ashtray
made of clay

My kids I know they love me
they show me all the time
they don't need to
buy me presents
I know that they are mine.
Think freely, forget commercialism, enjoy your family with time not $$$$$$

Not In One Conformist Group
Anna Vigue Apr 2015
What year is this anyway?
What did high school mean to me?
What did high school take from me?
My individuality
My sense of immortality

it must have helped
that I
Remember when it was Banger, Rapper, Preppy?  At least it was that way here in middle class suburbia in the early 90's.

Scrupulous Empowerment
Endowed upon our Government
A System that us Citizens
Employ without much Dissonance

Listening without Learning
Driving but not Driven
Waiting to be Waistless
Adoring the Adornments

And being nothing more than that.

Ninteen Eighty What?
Anna Vigue Dec 2014
remember who you was
and remember who you wouldn't
remember if you Should'ave
and remember if you Couldn't
the things that happened Yesteryear
are gone like yesterday
the things that will
you could drink in a Frappe

ask the happy What Not
he was gone, like yesterday
the things that will tomorrow
are now gone
like Ice Capades
I love the rhythm and cadence of Alligator Pie, so fun to read.  So I like to play with syllables when I write.  I saw the Smurfs Ice Capades  at my local Memorial Centre when I was a kid.

Kids Will Be Kids
Anna Vigue Dec 2014
"Nice hair
did you dye it that colour
so you could look like me?"

Those looks
The one off comments
I knew I was Different

When I was little
boys chased my bike and
threw rocks and me

When I was older
boys put notes in
my locker

While girls did
what girls do
which was often
(at that age)
not very nice

Those witty

The Time Between Seasons
Anna Vigue Nov 2014
Autumn has the wind
Winter has the sun
The time between the seasons
Is my favorite - bar none

Frost is in the morning
Chill is in the night
But the stars will still shine brightly
Until they hide from morning light

The sunset's bright with purple pink
The sunrise red as blood
Water at the rivers edge
Threatening to flood

There's beauty and there's danger
All that which makes life sweet
Living on an Island
Really can't be beat

It Starts With Music
Anna Vigue Sep 2014
It doesn’t matter what I type
As long as I type words
It doesn’t faze me what the hype
As long as I infer
The lyrics although musical
Just bounce inside my head
They always start with music
But the  words come out instead
It does have a tune.

There Is Only Here
Anna Vigue Aug 2014
Stuck in translation
Such human frustration
When something goes wrong
I will write you a song
It’s true that we’ll never
Believe you for long
If I write you this song
Will you feel I belong
No I never will see you in heaven
Nor will I  see you in hell
I will just see you right here
While you’re currently alive and well.
Has a tune

The Police On The Range
Anna Vigue Apr 2014
There's a time for worry
A time for shame
There are places
You'll never see again
If insurance you seek
Then do not
Challenge me
I am certain
And you'll be the one
Go, Go on your way
If you stay
It will be
Your last day
You better go hide
Perhaps hitchhike a ride
I would not
you to
But I'll catch
Up with
You, Sir

The Nowhere Place
Anna Vigue Nov 2013
Temperatures rise
Clouds part
Sun shines
It warms my heart

I Stretch out
Lay back
Feel the heat
What lacks?

Oh yes
He's here
That ****** warmth
Lovely dear

Keep on watching
Down below
Kiss me now,
Before the world explodes

Nothing left now
Empty space
Darkness falls
The Nowhere Place
Thought this one had a neat rhythm

This Cold Morning

Rememberance Day
Anna Vigue Nov 2013
remember when
you fought to live
fought for our rights
freedom to give
remember when
out at sea
strong waves lashing
courage to be
a warrior fighting
for fellow man
keeping together
our selfish clan
fighting for
our right to be
our right to choices
right to be free
now to honor
your day at last
is it enough?
remembrance past?

I shall give you
every day
my past my future
in every way
I give you thanks
and all respect
every day
and somehow yet
I know that this
is not enough
you fought the war
with much rebuff
all the freedoms
I enjoy
the soldier grew
from a small boy
born to protect
and born to serve
perhaps it's more
than I deserve

Damn Humans
Anna Vigue Nov 2013
wind lashing
rain pouring
typhoon here with
little warning
heaven opens
up it's eye
houses torn
people die
earthquakes rupture
torn apart
family's mourning
breaking hearts
natures wrath
against mankind
lashing out
a monster sky
global warming
oceans death
oh what a world
oh what a mess
As extreme weather hits, I take time to reflect upon my impact on this world, and what I can do to help future generations survive.

On Again, Off Again
Anna Vigue Nov 2013
When you left me standing there
I felt like such a clout
My heart was filled with agony
My mind was filled with doubt

I turned around to walk away
Pretending not to care
I felt so wicked foolish
Hurting more than I could bare

Next time you break up with me
I know I'll follow through
I'll never call you back again
You *******, I love you
Pure fiction, but I liked the turnaround at the end

I look upon her
and smile
Do not smile
she says
It is not good
she says
It will cause
your face to wrinkle
your lines to deepen

Look at me
she says
I do not smile,
my face is smooth
as buttah

But I never was
one to listen
I cannot help it
my rebellious self
as I smile at the memory
of my grandmother
wrinkles deepening
at the corner of my eyes
That Russian lady had great skin!

In the Name of Science
Anna Vigue Oct 2013
Are humans inherently evil?
Does it go right to the core?
Do we always need to prove ourselves?
Do we need to settle the score?
I watched a documentary
With people doing experiments
On other people just like them
Callous with their detriments
The lower class
The prisoners
The foreigners
By practitioners
And now we have this information
Torture, surgery, chemical weaponry
Some classified, some out to view
Is it their duty of citizenry
To share that information with me?
To tell me how and when and why
To share results of tests gone by?
Do I even want to know?
Do not let them die in vain
Maybe I should share the pain
(maybe you should share it too)
To learn
To see
NOT to do
Although there are horrors and abominations of human behaviors, what has been done cannot be undone.  As a society I hope we can learn from past (and current) human experimentation so that the lives are not lost in vain.  The information that was garnered in unimaginable ways is here, it exists, it is now ours as a collective history.  To not use it seems to be an abuse of it.

This is my lyrical masterpiece
Is somebody reading this?
I'll take you up so high
Adrenaline will make you fly
Do you think that you know me?
There's nobody like me!
Do you think you can handle
My lyrical ramble?
Do you think you can see me?
My mind and my dreams be
Do you think you can hear me
my voice loud and clear, see?
You know you don't know me
You don't even know you!
Oh wait --
Stop and see --
I don't even know me!
What, I think I'm a rapper now?

Happy Valentines Day Poopy
Although I do not need
A date just to remind me to
That our love is deep indeed

Your superior eyes entrance me  
When you look up from your book
To catch my eyes just so
And give me that **** look

That I hold inside my mind
It’s a look for only me
I will treasure it forever
Into my heart you see
I wrote this for a friends ******* Valentines.  It was based on a little dossier I had my friend fill out on his lady....What do you think of the nickname he chose?

trying to write
trying to think
the kids won't stop chatting
please get me a drink
from the deepest fount
of knowledge and peace
I would swim deeper down
to muffle the sound
reactions in check
DOWN -- hit the deck
I will not engage
your unflattering gaze
now sit down to eat
ahhhh this peace is a treat

15 and Counting
Anna Vigue Oct 2013
I can't tell you what I meant
because I don't know what I said
I'd tell you what I think
but I haven't got a thought
if I put two and two together
I think that I'd get five
and if you'd **** me
for what I know
I'd only tell you lies
I'm a smashed up piggy bank
robbed of all my pride
broken heart
empty mind

All the wrong reasons
Anna Vigue Oct 2013
You had it made
no worries
no fears
no sadness
but you chose to throw it all away-
for all the wrong reasons
then you realized
that you were better off before
and patched it up
expecting forgiveness
expecting to end the pain.
You  then knew
that it was right to
be with him
to share his love
his pain
because of mistakes
and problems
it couldn't work
then you realized
that mistake you had made-
for all the wrong reasons

Unregarded Boyfriend
Anna Vigue Oct 2013
Do you love me?
Do I care?
I reach out to you
no one is there.
You tell me you love me
I tell you the same
but all that I'm doing
is hiding my pain.
Life in the fast lane
it ain't all that great
in my world that only
revolves around hate.

Teenage Angst
Anna Vigue Oct 2013
No one understands
the power of pain--
it gives you all the pleasure
It gives them all the shame.
Does it make you feel good?
No one else left to blame.
You can feel your heart pounding
adrenaline in your veins--
all the aspects of death
are one and the same.
An empty soul
without even a name--
Will the pain ever die?
Will emotions ever tame?
Fighting and killing,
it's all one big game--
in a world that only
revolves around pain
This poem was written by me at 14 in the early 90's
