#139 Runaway

I hide in the darkness And hide from the light If I can’t run, then I gotta hide I’m a runaway If I wanna live Then I can’t be found I hide in their blindness I hide in plain sight If i don’t hide then I gotta fight It’s the secret of espionage Being a […]

#138 Don’t Look Back

Everyone has a secret A cross they have to bare Everyone has a dream They want but just won’t dare Everyone has a sorrow Or a joy that doesn’t last Anyone with a future Has a past. So take up your cross And follow me home The prize is right there Bright, shining like the […]

Safe In His Arms Again

Lanie was clearly going through some sort of mental breakdown. And oh, was it something to behold. The violent dance of death was beautiful. Terrifying. And strangely intimate. Jealousy prodded Ben, in the same place where she’d poked her stick into his belly. It wasn’t that he wanted to be in Jake’s place right then. But just to share that closeness with her. To have her attention fully on him, acutely aware of every inch of his body and every move he made. Jake and Lanie seemed to read each other’s minds.

#142 Where you Go

There is nowhere you can fall That I will not save you, bring you back If you are lost, I will overturn every rock Search Heaven and hell Walk every mile of the earth To find you, bring you back I will guard you, bless you, keep you No matter how dark, no matter how […]

#135 Back to Haunt You

My first love, now shot and dying And I buried her in the park I left my shovel on her grave. Things are never over Just because you say it’s over And she has to come back for me. Oh, how she haunts me All the unfinished business All buried with her, too She leaves […]

#134 An Old Soul

He wants to be just like his father An artist, like his father is He writes beautiful songs and poetry Because his father did He is kind and soft and heart broken He loves the art of life Too bad for his future kids Too bad for his future wife. There the similarities end And […]

#132 At Last, the Goodbye

We’re going back to the way things were Before the nightmare started It’s over now, we’re waking up And we are broken hearted So back you go to where you came Pack your bags and go away You’ll never be back Because of the past, you can’t stay All the pain of all the years […]

#127 One of Those Things

Some things never lose their power over you Like sweet red win A love gone right A love gone wrong Something someone said Something you should have done I can’t help but replay those words I should never had known you said Or those words I should never have thought you meant I’m glad to […]

#129 Race Against Time

We’re all lined up at the starting line Coach has got his starting watch The whistle blows, we all take off Hoping this time we can beat the clock The last one through is this slow, short girl Puffing around the track No matter how fast the rest of us run This girl always holds […]

#128 Mirror Image

I’m frustrated, you’re frustrated I’m tired of it – so are you We both feel unwanted, we both want to leave We both feel we’ve done our best We’ve had it up to here We can’t take it anymore We both feel right, and the other must be wrong I want to say it, but […]

Toeing the Line

#strongwomen #writer #author #entrepreneur #blog #blogger #canadian #alberta #chapter #romance #drama #novel Nurse Wallstead put her hands on her broad hips, a deep scowl on her face. “Chief! I don’t want his breathing to get any more aggravated. Can you two have it out later?” Lanie slammed the drawer. “Fine. I’ll leave. But you had […]

#121 Hallways `

I’m scared to walk the halls alone In case I might see you there I’m scared to know what you’re thinking Because I’m just alone. I know I can’t avoid you It’s like you’re everywhere But maybe what I need to do Is just keep walking These lonely halls alone. #strongwomen #writer #author #entrepreneur #blog […]

#118 Speak Up

Her eyes will never smile Her eyes will never be bright Her hands are too worn to be beautiful Her words too soft to be heard Someone has taken taken away her voice What can she possibly do? Everyone tells her to speak, speak up Which sucks away more of her words The harder she […]

#117 The Parody

There’s never any light In her musty room You’ve betrayed me three too times And three times crossed yourself You think that you’re the king of the world The sight of you makes me feel empty Your words make you think You are speaking to me But you speak to an image in your mind […]

Guest Post – Grounding

by Francisca Nyachoto #strongwomen #writer #author #entrepreneur #blog #blogger #canadian #alberta #poetry The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word ‘grounding ‘ is the Earth…connection to the earth, connection to nature, stability, tranquillity, peace and a perfect stillness. Living in the times we are, the pandemic has left many people […]

#116 Pen to Paper

Random words I throw together All tied up with a broken tether They have no meaning that I can see I have no idea what they will be. They sound cool, so I write them down I like the way they feel and sound Then ten years later I understand The words that tumbled from […]

The Good Place vs The Bible

Hi. So. I just finished watching The Good Place for the second time. It only took three days, wow. I’m thinking of making it some sort of yearly tradition or something, because I love this show so much. It’s a world I really enjoy being in, intellectually speaking. It would be a horror show in […]

#109 Another Day

What’s the point of talking when you think that I’m a fake? What’s the point in compliments that you refuse to take? How can I be happy when the sky is cold and grey? How can I be happy when I’m so sad today? What’s the point in honesty when this world is a lie? […]

#104 The BC Fires

Smoke like mist hanging low on the ground Smoke like clouds in the sky A blurry reflection, beyond recognition The world is burning down The trees on the far shore are dancing The trees on the near shore are black The lake in the middle is so, so pale Everything’s covered in smoke Houses so […]

#104 Clock Watchers

We come from a long line of clock watchers Who try to put time in a frame Watching the sun cross the sky A sundial! The need to put time in our hands We try to control time, possess it It’s a force with no feeling, no form Just another irresistible power Slipping right through […]

#103 Scars of a Broken Soldier

Living in the trenches waiting for my next command Blood runs like little rivers down my arms and hands Friends lay broken,, lying in blood, the last thing they will see They fought they died, they gave their lives, because they believed. As a duty to my country, I must fight until I drop It […]

#102 Dancer

Dancer, dancer Twirl me faster Dip me lower hold me longer Make me fly, let me fall Catch me before I reach the ground Dancer, dancer Catch your breath, love Let your heart rely on mine Dancer, dancer, Hold me closer Let’s walk on the wild side Dancer, dancer Whisper softer Tell me all your […]

#101 Gallop to freedom

I’m running, running running. The sun is on my face I’m running, running, running, the wind is in my mane I’m stopping, breathing, seeking. The clover was so sweet I’m going, going, going. There’s not enough to eat I’m hiding, shaking, searching. There’s fear in the air They’re coming, coming, coming. I smell them everywhere […]

#97 Nobody Knows

“What more can we do for her? Do you think she can be saved?” “I don’t know, but one things for sure I’ve never seen someone so brave.” “What if we try something different? Maybe new meds, or a shrink?” “No, that won’t do any good. Radiation’s next, I think.” Nobody knows I’m not sleeping. […]

#95 Live to Die

Does no one care that I’m sitting here IN desperate, hopeless pain? Will my pleas go on forever Unheard, ignored, in vain? When will people hear me sob And see the tears I cry How long will I have to live Before I’m allowed to die? How long before I can succumb To the emptiness […]

#94 Let Go

When you say or do something That makes me mad I tell myself to let it go When you yell and make threats And I want to yell back I take a moment to compose myself Sometimes Even when something Is worth fighting over I know it’s not worth the fight Of course it isn’t […]

#93 Breaking Chains

They strung me along using sleight of hand Pulling me back up when I couldn’t stand But what am I to do when the torture ends When I break the chains and I’m free again? I wandered the path like an empty ghost Hovered at the edge, didn’t get too close Then along you came […]

#92 What Depths of Love

Through hell and high water And through the darkness and night I will love you to the end of the world When the storm closes in And the waves crash on the shore My love will be the shining light That leads you back home And even when the music ends And I can no […]

#89 Blink

They’re not joking when they say Life clicks by at the blink of your eye One moment you’ll be getting your wings And the next, you’ll know how to fly. So believe me when I tell you this It’s not just a cliche Nothing stays the same in life From day to changing day Though […]

#87 Save the Last Dance

A girl’s first dance Is the best day of her life New dress, new shoes An entire new look. The music makes you want to move But you don’t quite know how After a while though, you’ll get in the mood And no one will be able to stop you. You get up the courage […]

#79 Rendezvous

When not another small tear is shed Not another drop of blood bled Not a another heart or soul broken Not a harsh or cruel word spoken When the world is as it was when It was new, when it began That’s when I’ll be with you again I love you, and miss you. See […]

#75 Let There Be Light

In the beginning Before there was you My life was a dark abyss Of empty nothingness. And God said, “Let there be light!” And there was light. And that was the first day Of the rest of my life. So let us live And never die As the sun rises IN the east Let there […]
