Father

Poem By Missy Lynn

Dancing embers of your cigarette tip
Burn a hole in my heart, for your gone.
The lingering melodies of the soft lullabies
You sang, haunt my soul, and chill me to the bone
The demure sparkle in your unforgettable eyes
So eloquently soothed my distempered infant spirit
The curls of your hair that fascinated me
Years ago. Are now like orange flames. Burning,
Upon my memory in a wild fiery fury.
Burning, against a sky of
Stale cold, blood colored, death.
Your memory, like fire
Consumes my soul, lives in me

Remember little jack sprat
Remember three little pigs
Remember all those fairy tales
That seemed so real to us a kids

The calm of night is rustled
By gentle voices upon the breath of wind
The stillness that covers crackled under
The feet of evening’s bitterest gust

Trust Is

Trust is
A light that shines in your eyes
Bright and flickering
As a candle in the breeze

A Doofus Is Killing My Frienship

Do you know the feeling
That it is to lose a friend?
To have someone so close
Shatched away?

Out reach out stretched hand
Mercifully clinging to life
Do not let it slip

Feminism

Sweat beads down my face
90 degrees Toiling over fire
I never complained in this
(I cook, I clean)
