Black Sheep

Black Sheep I saw your face through a teary window Said you couldn’t sleep That you fought the day And lost in the rain Talk talk talk to me Hey what’s the matter You were born in the space between A black sheep Awake and cursing the chatter That sound you’ve learned to drown Sometimes and again Still you told me you could hold together Its easy to see, because you know And it makes you laugh Never wanna mind […]

Shades Like Hazel

Shades Like Hazel Reaching out your hand of stone Digging in that vast boneyard For the remains of those who trust They bury your lies while you roam With time broken bones heal Together harder than before And echoes of sorry turn to steel   And was it just so easy And so very simple, For you, for you Because I wanted to believe I wanted to believe in shades like hazel in shades like hazel But without vision… Without […]

Splashing Around in the Summer Sun

As the summer sun so delightfully aligns with our backyard, it makes for some incredibly gorgeous golden rays of sun while we play around in the pool.  Temperatures are rising steadily here in the Arizona desert as we are approaching a forecast of 118 degrees!  We are beyond grateful to be able to splash around and cool off, which makes it possible to be outside this time of year.  I love watching these kids swim, jump, smile, laugh and splash […]

That Look is Reserved for Me

That Look is Reserved for Me That look is reserved for me… The One in a field of faceless faces, moving in a million broken pieces. My breath sways in a cascade of fits, every time… that look hooks my darkness. That look is reserved for me… I know….nobody but me… I know….what it does to me… That look is reserved for me… The one that strikes a stillness in my pulse, unmoving me in a state of paralytic bliss.
