You’ll Find Me Beyond The Cobblestones

You’ll find me beyond the cobblestones
Quiet man writing within a chaotic confine
Euphoric bedlam swinging from the rafters
A modest home upon the steep incline
Spirited princesses keeping me youthful
A curmudgeon with a loving streak
An honest hermit with little to say
Though here silence will not translate to meek

Too Cautious For That Rabbit Hole

tea-party-1138912.jpg

The slow silent flattery
Worming it’s way into your ear
Unsure of calculated intent
If you should accept it with fear
Or allow it to swell up & be free
Not much left of your personal pride
Life has chipped away at it
Sinking into a cowering stride

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

How much effort have you spent
To be contrary & constantly ignore
The world as it whispers lovely words
Snippets of charm floating to the floor
Standing at an arms distance
Not believing yourself to be Alice
Or any of the princesses of yore
Never dreaming of a shining palace

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

Never a confidence
Feeling temptations of the weak
They’re just simple words
Hoping to give an outlook a tweak
Not meant to encumber
Or ransack your existence
But you can’t hinder the words
& their slow penetrating insistence

High Upon The Hill

High upon the hill
With the city down below
Lies a teary-eyed princess
With reasons she doesn’t know
The magic of forgotten beauties
The thought of a heart inspired
Her soul is pure
The enchantment of that desired
The cool wind gives a chill
Modesty mixed with being shy
The future is still ahead
There’s hope in the midnight sky

Winter Clouds Straying From The Sky

Winter clouds straying from the sky

Fermenting love straining my pants

Fatigue settles down on your choices

Won’t remedy pain by a transplant

Heartbreak debilitating to the soul

Physical passion can’t rejuvenate

A heartfelt kiss to break the spell

Fairytales exist when you captivate

Real world complications reign down

No princess to make my escape

More inclined to discover a tramp

Pertaining to this barren landscape

Once Upon A Time

vacation-888817

Once upon a time
In the land of kings & crowns
Princesses spoke in rhymes
With a belief in magic to be found
Giant castle walls
Alligators living in the moats
Knights clanking big & tall
Gentlemen in handsome coats
The ladies sitting down for tea
Each with a jeweled pillow to sit
Dressed grandly in all their finery
Each wee lass of the proper etiquette
Fairies danced above their heads
Their wings spraying drops of glitter
Like a whisper as thin as thread
Laughter rising as the pixies flitter
Wonderful to sip from cups & plates
Smiles abound on everyone’s face
Much nicer when no one’s late
Together is the happiest place
