Too Shy To Keep Up The Pretensions






Too shy to keep up the pretensions
Crawling instead into the Notebook
The one with the scribbles upside down
Hints & subtractions; death to all the crooks
They’re lurking in the recesses
An obtuse excuse eventually bound to fail
Strength comes in many forms
Even when she tries to hide behind her veil


Reaching Into My Notebook Of Inspiration


Reaching into my notebook of inspiration
I’m searching for something I scribbled before
A note: the distant scratch of my quill
The love of words spilled – paper asking for more

These Notebooks Drip With Inspiration

These notebooks drip with inspiration
Thoughts of passion in so many words
Raw relations developed from a focused mind
You want more, but you used to call me a nerd
Back in school, you were the height popularity
I still remember how your indifference stung
Time does wonders in both directions
Beauty fades even while this life has truly just begun
