My Poisonous Teddy Bear

Poem By Lily Vasquez

I find you
broken, beaten, defeated
Why?
I haven't the slightest idea
As we spend time together
I grow to know little things about you
You are MY teddy bear
complete with gashes in the stuffing
that one eye
and to top it all off
no stitches that beautiful smile
Immediately I try to fix you
Patch up your gashes
Give you two eyes
Stitch on that heart catching smile
Then?
You come to life
and slowly tear apart everything
I have done to fix you
I am momentarily hurt
Knowing that my hard work was in vain
But now I see that you are poison
Bad for me
Good to me
I will try to fix you again
To watch you destroy yourself
Like McDonald's
I'm lovin' it

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

Jealousy

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

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
