Tuning (10w×2)
White Widow Jul 2018
The only song in my head
Is the
Akashic Records

The song in my heart
Is the
One That Matters
One is Melody, one is Harmony

Octopus
White Widow Jul 2018
Tentacles grasping for nutrition
Soaking in everything around you.
Filled with visceral emotion overload
Angered by the world's injustices
You must then express yourself in ink

To empty.
White Widow Jul 2018
Self-Sabotage is what I am familiar...

I 'Hear' your words,
   But I've 'Read' them, too
(...Is that what you REALLY think
                               I'D do??)
SMH... Foster kids get ******* in the system. Won't give it up if u don't give up...

Waking Dead (10W)
White Widow May 2018
Emotional hibernation
               is never preferable.
                              It's just death...
                                       while breathing.

To My Daughter
White Widow Feb 2018
This Valentine verse
is just for you
In case appreciation seems
Overdue
(Like the Hannah Montana Movie from the Library...)...

My Daughter you are the
Light in my life.
You make me smile with Love
Thru all the strife.

When your voice calls, "Mom!"
I feel complete.
You curl up beside me
Our favorite seat.
Our time together
(tho we wish more)
Is greater than a gift
From ANY store!

I know you remember
The Family Way
I wanted to remind you
This Valentine's Day...
               YOU
                       ARE
                                LOVED!!
Thinking of you

An Ode to Stanley
White Widow Feb 2018
A companion, true, knew just what to do.
A Warrior, a Lion with a mischievous view.
Played hard...and soft...and sometimes with others...
But knew one to be his favorite lover.
Loved toys (of all sorts,) to keep his attention.
(Some other sweet things I'd like to mention)
His 'street cred' was tops, loved by all the 'hood
Loved to to cuddle when he felt misunderstood.
Smart & sassy, empathic for sure
Sought me out, my emotions his lure.
My life was enriched for our time together.
He's a part of my heart, from now til forever.
Stanley, my beautiful 3y.o. orange tabby passed . Gone too soon. Will always be remembered with a smile.

Companion Piece
White Widow Dec 2017
Boyfriend,  girlfriend,  paramour
Lover,  enchantress, yet  so much more.
Mistress,  concubine,  leader of the pack
Siren,  call girl...these terms lack
The Totality Package
Love with the intimate
The 'Girlfriend Experience'
(Just add 'legitimate'!)
Companion, friend
Speaker extrodinaire
Listens at length as I contemplate  air.
Moves to action
with all that passion
(and shares indulgences with my fashion)
Knows when to hone-in...
               ...and when to ****-out!
Knows I'm only venting when I shout...
I'll eventually get to what this is about...
Dating after Widowhood. Definitely an experience...

— The End —
