Poem By Keri Jopplin

Sweet dreams and memories of days long gone; .
Remembering my life and loves gone wrong.
I can't go back there's so much to replace,
My dreams become reality that's hard to face.

A secret so horrid that sacrificed my youth;
No-one wants to hear or believe my truth.
Most never ask or stare in disbelief;
Just listening and caring is such a relief.

Maybe I was born to be plain white trash,
To be taken for granted and burned to ash.
A survivor of Incest but still victimized by all;
So many to name and so few to call.

Should I start over, renew my life again?
Move to a new town? Look for a new friend?
To know her before a picture of perfection
Look in a mirror now I see another reflection;

I ask her to speak she remembers his lies,
She wants to tell all but then only she cries.

Snow Whispers

She dances upon snow gone lost in her dreams,
Wiggles turn to giggles as she makes angel wings.
Wishing upon stars under beams of the moon,
She hums her favorite, a lost & forgotton tune;


Do I dare approach passion with loaded gun?
Hoping to hear your heart, to taste your tongue?

Be fair I say, hearts mercies are tender, unfeigned.

Happy Birthday Momma

I think of you often a hundred times a day,
To the Lord I ask, for my momma I pray;
No more suffering in Heaven you lay,
You would have been older sixty-two today.

Thank You

Thank you for the good times,
And days you fill with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories;
And for feelings I'll always treasure.

Cupid's Arrow

You''ve unlocked my heart and kept the key;
I'm unable to breath, unable to flee.
You've showed me love, gave my heart a home
Grateful to you, I'm no longer alone
