Why She Stays

Poem By Beatrice Preti

My neighbour's big tree is just beside my fences
And has a lot of leaves
During, ah..when the wind blows
I love to keep my yard clear of leaves
I am done with all the trees I planted
Because they produce so much leaves, I cut them one by one
Away with all the trees I love
God says love your neighbour as thyself
Also love your enemies
Love the unlovables
Like God, love is good
God I pray teach me how to handle love..

Subway Love

Your love is like a subway
I wait here for my turn
And only underground
Will my love for you be returned

Blood Red

The Devil’s nails are sharp, blood red
She cuts your soul: if you scream, you’re dead
She rips you to shreds, but you bear the pain
Because you have too much to lose, and nothing to gain

She Is

She is the lantern, lighting the way
She is dawn's blush, the first light of day
She is the strength carved into a stone
She is the warmth that runs through my bones

Hummingbird Girl

She's a hummingbird girl, with her heart on her wings
As she flitters and floats amongst bishops and kings
She feeds upon nectar from life's sweetest flowers
Oblivious to her strength, her kindness, and power

To My Mother, With Love

As long as you love me, I don't need a man
To hug me at nights, or to hold my hand
I won't gawk at the gossip, or read magazines
To glimpse Harry Styles with his new beauty queen

Pawn-Shop Girl

Pawn-shop girl
Sell your heart for gold
Flaunt your wares, but be quick!
They won't want you when you're old
