week 419 ~ blues walkin’ like a woman

with 3 comments

me-419blues walkin’ like a woman
slowly down a crooked road
doin’ what’s right what she can

finishing what she began
eyes never blink her oats sowed
blues walkin’ like a woman

once upon a time she ran
staggered to carry the load
doin’ what’s right what she can

her mind stuffed with contraband
anger ready to explode
blues walkin’ like a woman

owning her path an urban
gypsy with dignity stowed
doin’ what’s right what she can

to ignore the proffered plan
to get back what she’s been owed
doin’ what’s right what she can
blues walkin’ like a woman

me 362strings attached
more loose ends
overmatched
strings attached
dreams unlatched
as hope bends
strings attached
more loose ends

week 269 ~ swimming through solitary darkness

with 2 comments

me2269swimming through solitary darkness
in limbo where I shouldn’t belong
knocked overboard and under duress
swimming through solitary darkness
mistakes compound that I can’t address
caught in a spiral of words gone wrong
swimming through solitary darkness
in limbo where I shouldn’t belong
