I know you hear me my Lord

the secret thoughts ripping from my soul
like junk mail being torn into shreds
to be stinking in tomorrows garbage
discarded with the bad leftovers in my mind

I can feel you listening my Lord

wondering what sins of yesteryear I did commit
for this waste to be acid reflux regurgitated
burning me from the inside out from my mouth
into the world already so full of pollution

I know the holy spirit is a gift my Lord

yet I am filled with sadness over memories
sometimes consumed by such sorrows
slinging down my throat as I swallow
choking on my own putrid humanity

and I know one day my Lord

I shall be free from the bondage of my flesh
and the turmoil I feel on this earth
fighting between the good and evil within me
will all be forgotten in your kingdom

Amen.

might I dream a small dream for a while
school girl with a crush secret smile
in a place where only my heart could reach
sandy shores with perfect waves on a beach

might I surf them well like I did when young
when my legs could carry me far to run
my heart full of sunshine and happiness
before this life took its glorious mess

take me back to the once carefree kisses
without a thought of where and when misses
I could hold your hand forever it seems
once upon a time in favorite dreams

you are still here my knight once in armor
although my brown eyes still cry getting sore
in precious memories you do remain
your love on my soul is a cherished stain~

(you are always part of me my love and I will see you n heaven one day)

how I do dream of chocolate meringue pie
banana splits with cream plied up high,
carrot cake and lemon bars are too good
I want to eat them all and yes I could,

but I have the diet blues on my mind
living life with a refrigerator bind,
I might as well put a lock on my tongue
if I wish for a body like I was young~

every good and perfect gift is of heaven
heres to one day being perfect in heaven
cause Im sure failing here on earth
miserably might I add
cause In my own flesh I wallow in it
like its a faithful companion
reminding me true happiness
is a state of heart
not of mind nor body
but of heart
where is your heart today?
does that bring you happiness?
if not than go find something that does
life it really too short
not to be happy
so in my body and mind misery
I still find heart happiness
yes quite the dichotomy I know it eh?
:) but I am still smiling on the inside
cause my heart is eating chocolate pie
my heart is writing prose
my heart enjoys the birds outside
my heart is full~

reality hits be in the face full force and leaves
its not on holiday for it will be back shortly
to inspire rather creative warning devices
of putting my hands in the way of the blow

as my bank account scream why why why
while my car is in need of repair again
and Im letting it give up its worn ghost
in the hunt through a plethora of vehicles

im in luck cause this is the best time to buy
everyone wishes to reduce their inventory
cute well dressed young salesman know
good credit when it walks around the place

but as every good thrifty girl has intuition
I did my homework first and car fax is a friend
actually knowing what Im looking for is a plus
then I will make them work for their commision

my poor feet are cold into this fine day
as I snuggle in bed with much in mind,
my tongue over load spills out words I say
as this brain struggles for right ones to find,

my hands are ice even to my own touch
as I warm them with hot tea in my cup,
my window brings in light maybe too much
as the pets all say good morning what's sup,

time to take a hot bath I thoughts do screams
for I am far too chilly to sit here,
time to get a move on the sunshine beams
for its the time to get into a faster gear...

Happy Sunday Y'all~ have a blessed day

just another Sunday withers like the leaves
takes away the sunshine darkness thieves
night fell upon us but I did not hear it call
standing in my yard in the middle of fall

might those stars champagne serve me a glass
of broken wishes that will come true at last
in a crystal flute to clink a toast to the living
before we all eat too much on Thanksgiving

maybe I do remember counting the twinkles
underneath the blanket of my wrinkles
dreams did not die but changed their mind
through the struggles of life are hard to find

so I wish tonight out loud in memories of old
upon those lights glowing brightly bold
my heart is still filled with childhood love
pouring silent girl crushes in thoughts above

yanno shopping for a new car is a total pain in the booty
do all these car salesmen think Im a complete idiot?
when other dealers have advertised prices online
which includes major sites that sell cars for the public

why on earth would they think I would pay more?

for their flipping convenience or commission? really now...
they can all kiss my grits as they say in the south
I would rather the drive two hours each way to save
the three to four grand they are trying to steal from me

the New York in me revealed it's rainbow of glory!

as I have a list of dealers with these much lower prices
printed out in all their Im not getting screwed truths
ready to rock any sales person that actually want to sell a car
cause I will walk out and they will lose a sale

too many other dealerships and someone will sell me a car

4:30 am in NC and tired of people trying to sock it to me
time to get up being I know what I want and how much I will spend
and drive to larger dealers in the area with my printed list
cause there are six within 30 miles of each other with the two cars I like

and the two hour drive is worth seeing who will give me the best price

its between the Jeep Compass 4x4 or the Hyundai Kona AWD
and we know which SUV retains its value better
and which has the better car warranty and gas mileage
so it comes down to who wants my money more

sometimes I can really have an odd sense of humor
which few can understand while I bust a gut
because they know not what they are even saying
nor why I would reply in a manner some find strange

so Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ
please grant me the strength to keep my mouth shut
to laugh on the inside and not on the outside
and to forgive me when I just cant do it~

Yup. Been there and done that.

In my travels, I have come across fellow Christians who do not take humor well. Never understood that. We were made in His image, so what makes some think God does not like a good joke Himself?

I do believe our Father in heaven has a great sense of humor, its among the many wonderful things about him.
Its people that choose not to see his lighter side~

I am the happy new owner of a Jeep Compass Sport 4X4, with a $2000 savings after shopping around. This savings also included the extended warranty, which wasn't in the price at other dealers. :) I did good~

happy happy happy

written riding the subway in NYC during the holidays of 2017

tonight I ride the machinery of the deep
and roar upon pollution's paradise
hidden among the peaked old towers
that glitter all that isn't gold or nice

stack one stack a thousand again
the lack of silence is an insane bleep
jam full letting all the stale air out
like bags of frozen people that creep

when all I want is a fresh clean breath
of compassionate dignity to thrive
inside this tin rattling lit up cage
for the scan of a Metro Card in this dive

and I wonder what everyone is doing
indifferent anonymity is the schizophrenia
electrical blizkrieg thieves of personality
swallowed by suicidal concrete dementia~

We went for a ride in the new Jeep to Wrightsville Beach
it was a bit chilly yesterday in the bright ocean breeze
but a rather relaxing nice afternoon in the sunshine
as my youngest and I strolled along the shoreline
trying hard not to get our shoes wet flirting with the tide
while the wind would randomly whip through our hair

and there they were just swimming along peacefully
maybe four or five glorious leaping local dolphins
playing in the glimmers of hopeful sudden discovery
like they were there just for us to marvel over in happiness
cause its been a long time since we have seen any there
reminding us that God has a special way of sharing his creations

and all we have to do is pay attention...
