Jealousy

Poem By Lily Vasquez

I'm up
Seeing what I now see
It makes me wish I was fast asleep
I could close my eyes
But that doesn't make it go away
It's sitting right in front of me
Their happiness makes me queasy
But I'm pretty sure it won't last long
I'll give it a month
No. A week.

Keep It Movin'

The hands on the clock
They never stop turning
And us, as people
We never stop learning

Second Thoughts

I'm up
Seeing what I now see
It makes me wish I was fast asleep
I could close my eyes

My Poisonous Teddy Bear

I find you
broken, beaten, defeated
Why?
I haven't the slightest idea

Queen

I am a queen
Sans the glitz
and the glam
Sans the subjects

Mother

A woman like you
People always ask for
A person who not only opens
But guides you through the door
