Haunted Sleep

Poem By Lizz Lodwick

As I try to go to sleep,
I hear music.
I hear music.
It takes away my comfort,
brings back fear.
For the music,
from a haunted soul,
comes out at night to play.
It scares the living daylights,
from my lighted eyes with ways.
I still hear the music,
it comes out at night to play.
It scares me,
and it wares me.
It will never go away.

Someday I will close the window.
Forget everything that's outside.
Sing a happy tune,
and feel a little better.

A Poor Girl

Oh, woe is me.
Trapped in the frugal life of a poor girl.
A mendicant to the rich snobs.
Strictured in a house, filled with palid dust.

Anorexic Storm

Sound of thunder filling your ears,
but for a different reason.
No storm of wind or rain.
Just hunger clouding your thoughts and brain.


I talk to you all the time,
and tell you all my secrets.
What I tell you is top secret.
No one will ever know.

A Quiet Life

A quiet life.
A life of fear.
Encroaching doom,
it kept me here.


Perfect is overrated.
Looks are too.
But since when has the prince ever looked at you?
