The Jar

Standard

Expectation
Frustration
Rage
Dismay
My emotions broke the jar
In the air, everything in the air
They rain like confetti
They snow like firework
I implode; I explode
Tears and foam; champ and shivers
And he holds me, he holds me steady
He soothes me, he pats me like a kitty

The Adjustment

Standard

Love is letting go
Simply agree, no is a no
Love is giving up control
What we had goes on yes I know

The Orchid Girl

Standard

I stroll along her face with my thumb
I feel
I touch
Her eyes
So delicate
Her face
Never fades
I can no longer hear her voice
I close the door
I clear my mind
No, all I can hear is still
The drizzling rain
Her hair does not move a bit
But I fear she’d feel chilly in such wind
I hold her close
Next to my heart
I lower my head
And again try to have some sleep

The Hostess

Standard

Come inside
Welcome to my mess
Make yourself home
You know I never know best
Stroll across
Tiptoe through
Enter the core
Recover my soul
But don’t
If you can’t make it to the end
Don’t
Even
Knock
