The Fairy

The sun hit her long chestnut brown hair highlighting the golden hues.

Her wings glistened in the sunlight as she dried herself and turned. 

She smiled looking at him, with her gaze falling to his eyes.

His sea-blue eyes that made her blush but who was he?

He was in awe of her beauty, of her wings and her eyes.

Her green eyes looking him up and down.

He knew her; he knew her gaze.

It warmed his soul as he stood there wanting to go to her.

Wanting to touch her, to talk to her, but he found he couldn’t speak.

The fairy twirled as she dried the rest of her clothes,

Whirling her wand around her emerald dress.

The man watched her with a yearning smile on his face.

He knew at this moment; the fairy was to be his.

The fairy, however, bowed and vanished before his eyes.

Lord, give me the Strength

So much time in the day.

So much to do and yet so little time.

The hours tick away, and yet so much more to do.

The guilt I feel, when in don’t spend enough time with them.

The guilt I feel, when I need to work.

The guilt I feel, when I am just too tired to move.

Lord, give me the strength to give them the mom they deserve. 

Work and life, but all I wanted was to be a mom.

Feeling lazy and wishing I had more time.

More time to spend with them, more to give them.

The life I didn’t have and the life I want for them.

So much time in the day.

So much to do and yet so little time.

The hours tick away, and yet so much more to do.

The guilt I feel, when in don’t spend enough time with them.

The guilt I feel, when I need to work.

The guilt I feel, when I am just too tired to move.

Lord, give me the strength to give them the mom they deserve.

Biting and Gnawing

Why can’t you be happy?

Why do you delight in others’ misery?

You can’t be happy for your friends?

You can’t stand when they are happy?

The pain of regret will come to bite you.

You will lose out and others will move on.

The cut will deepen as the time passes.

It will gnaw away at you until there is nothing left.

Your flesh will rot away as maggots eat you alive. 

It will fester and scab over, leaving you as horrid as you are now.

Opening again at each new sting.

The sting of pain and regret will eat at you,

gnawing away the new skin and devouring you whole.

The life of one with no happiness and the life of one who is not happy for others.

Is an empty, useless, decrepit life.

Support (A Poem About Supporting Others)

Support I give and rarely receive.

How is it the ones closest to you,

Are the ones who don’t support you?

Strangers give you praise and those you love

Wonder why they should.

Why can’t we praise people and support those we love?

Are we only there to support, when times are rough?

Why are those in your corner, not truly there for you?

When they have so much to give when your cards are down, 

But nothing when you achieve your goals.
