Copper

A penny for my thoughts?

Give me a pen and a paper

And I’ll take you on a journey

Past the contrasting black ink

On the white-as-snow page

And show you the mechanics

Of my brain. Here my thoughts

Are carried away on

Post-it notes of their own

Until they’re pieced together

Like separate pieces of the same puzzle,

A bigger idea made from

Several smaller ones

Placed out for very few to read.

Give me a penny, if you wish,

But I guarantee

It’s more than what you bargained for. 

Are You the One for Me?

Would you-

Follow me to the end of the Earth

Where no one else will know our names?

Listen to my every word

And hold on to it like a cherished friend?

Join me for my smallest whims

Even if they require more than they’re worth?

Hold my hand through thick and thin

And be there for me when I fall?

Trust in me and believe

I would never lead you astray.

Help me act out my hopes and dreams

And celebrate our success.

Love me like there’s no tomorrow

And hope today never ends.

But even if you would,

Would I do the same for you?

Stepford Smile

Perfect pearly periodontals

Plastered on a fresh-faced full frontal

With ruby red luscious lips

And a gallant gaze that never slips.

 

Powdered cherub-chiseled cheeks

And long slender legs that go on for weeks

Hold together this petite plastered shell

And a bosom that creates thoughts from Hell.

 

She’s a molding of God’s greatest creation

The epitome of human perfection-

But you must be careful, do not break her!

For she’s hollow within, she has no center.

Journey

I’ll let my thoughts

Take me on a journey

With no expectations

So they will not disappoint.

They’ll come to me

When I least expect it

And lift me up

So high

That buildings

Cannot contain my spirits.

They’ll take me to new places

With enough spare time to explore-

A forest

That houses my memories,

An ocean

That holds my heart,

A mountain

That captures my soul-

Allowing me to find myself.

But when I least expect it

They’ll drop me

And I’ll tumble

And fall

All the way back to earth

With a rough landing

In reality.
