*natural Causes*

Poem By Alien Girl

I awoke last night
To the sound of crickets
And birds, which was strange
The kitchen faucet was dripping
And the cat pawed along the hall
I heard the baby sigh softly
And a car door shut

I turned towards you
You were still
In the dark I didn't see the blankets rise with your breath
I heard no air escape from your mouth
I heard no air brought in

I contemplated reaching my hand
To shake
Or stir
But only lay there
Waiting for a sign

Then there it was
A small breath

Between you and me
If you can keep a secret that is
I was disappointed

*rock Bottom*

I will have to hit the bottom
So I can push off and swim to the top
I will have to let myself fall so far
To see where I really stand with you

*cry Wolf*

I need you to know
That I’m not all talk anymore
I’ve stopped crying wolf
I’m waking out that door

*fortunate One*

They say that I am a fortunate one
The fortunate daughter of a poor mans son
That dwells in the city of angels unseen
Living in luxuries you’d never believe


There are rules
That we need to follow
Left follows right
Day follows night

*you Stood Above His Body*

You stood above his body
And made a promise then
To him
To me
