Subway Love

Poem By Beatrice Preti

Your love is like a subway
I wait here for my turn
And only underground
Will my love for you be returned
You hide me from the light
Our life is in the dark
But I can't live without you
I'd die if we should part
So I wait at the station
For you to come my way
And then you take me places
Where I can never stay
Because the rides are short
I'm a stranger there, I know
So when we reach the end of the line
I catch another train back home
And it carries me to safety
To the boring, routine life
But I remember your journey
The way you loved me through the night
And when I get back home
I go back up the stairs
Back to the world of light
Dull people everywhere
And there I'll stay until
You finally come back
And then your subway love will take me
Racing down the track
And you'll stay with me until
We've reached the end of the line
And though you'll move on without me
I'll be ready for you, next time

Blood Red

The Devil’s nails are sharp, blood red
She cuts your soul: if you scream, you’re dead
She rips you to shreds, but you bear the pain
Because you have too much to lose, and nothing to gain

She Is

She is the lantern, lighting the way
She is dawn's blush, the first light of day
She is the strength carved into a stone
She is the warmth that runs through my bones

Hummingbird Girl

She's a hummingbird girl, with her heart on her wings
As she flitters and floats amongst bishops and kings
She feeds upon nectar from life's sweetest flowers
Oblivious to her strength, her kindness, and power

To My Mother, With Love

As long as you love me, I don't need a man
To hug me at nights, or to hold my hand
I won't gawk at the gossip, or read magazines
To glimpse Harry Styles with his new beauty queen

Pawn-Shop Girl

Pawn-shop girl
Sell your heart for gold
Flaunt your wares, but be quick!
They won't want you when you're old
