Someone©

I thought we would be together forever

but when the days turned into nights without you

I knew then that you were no longer mine

Promises of love

Promises of family

Ten years later

And all I have is a broken heart

With no children filling the voids you left behind

So I visit the lawyer

And One year later I’m out there again

Hoping to find someone who will

See how much I need him

Someone who can live happy and carefree

Someone who knows when to leave work behind

Someone who loves kids and making sand castles and volcanoes

Without questioning why

Someone who doesn’t make promises he knows he won’t keep

Someone who loves me just the way I am

and isn’t trying to “tame me”

Someone to grow old with

Someone who wants a forever love

How I wish you could have been my “someone”

There’s A Nightmare Under My Pillow©

When you lay your head down to sleep

You close your eyes

And

There’s a smile on your face

As you head off to dream land

But under my pillow I’m not so lucky

Because every time I lay my head down

I close my eyes

And try as hard as I can

To head off to my dream land

But there are no sweet dreams for me

Because, There’s a nightmare under my pillow

And it won’t go away

I turn right

I turn left

I move up

I move down

I open my eyes

I close my eyes

It doesn’t seem to matter

My nightmare is there when I close my eyes

It’s there when I open them

And Now I dread the night-time

Because I know it’s never going to get any better

My Nightmare must be a punishment

For what, I don’t know

I know I have to spend some time

Working it out or I’ll never be able

to lay my head upon my pillow

Close my eyes

and

Sleep

Oh how I long to visit my long-lost dream land

Maybe it’s just my pillow

Next time

Maybe, I’ll just borrow yours

Extinction©

My bones

My skin

My face

My head

My heart

My inner self

My outer self

My body

My Mind

It all belongs to me

It’s all a part of me

It all makes me whole

It all makes me empty

It all makes me happy

It all makes me sad

It all makes me think

It all helps me decide

My thoughts are mixed

My thoughts are uncertain

Sometimes they make me go back to the beginning

So I then can become certain

Certain of my beginning

Certain of my task

Certain of my foes

Certain of my allies

With all in place I’m ready, set, go…

Out into the world

With all that I have

All that I know

And all I intend to do

Look out world because I’ve begun

To turn to you and set you straight

The time has come to change this place

This place we call our home

Times are changing

Just like we do through the years

But now we must give this place

we call home a facelift

We must clean …

our air so we can breathe

We must clean ….

our water so we can drink

We must preserve …

what is good,

what is healthy

what is in danger

In danger of extinction

our birds

all of our food sources

our bodies

our selves

Give back to mother nature

All you have taken

Now she needs you as she has helped you

Help her before it becomes too late

We’re on a path

A path to extinction

Things can end faster than they began

Adam and Eve, Eve and Adam

No matter the name

No matter the forbidden fruit

Where there’s a beginning

There’s always and ending

We can only extend the time before our extinction

So make your choices

Choices control us

Choices change us

Choices lead us

Choices need us

Choices believe in us

The Quest©

Tattered and torn my heart lays in wait

Waiting for this pain to be lifted

The struggle is overbearing

It sucks the life out my very being

I know I’m not perfect and

I may not be as sophisticated as all the others

But I learn fast and I’m easy-going

I’d do anything to please those worth pleasing

I’d climb any mountain to get to where I am needed

I don’t ask for much and need very little

I hope for the best and hope that you’ll say yes

Yes to my quest to have you as mine so that we can live happily until the end of time

Your husband may always be your Mr. Right,

But you will forever be his Mrs. Right all the time.

Without you, he may lose direction, then need reflection

finding only regret for he did not listen when you were talking.

 Be gentle, forgiving, patient and understanding. Mr. Right will always be grateful.

Love will be forever binding”© Felina Silver Robinson

What Face Should I Wear Today©

Sometimes I wake up sad and blue

I don’t want to wear a sad face

Because I don’t want to face questions

I’m not ready to answer

Sometimes I wake up and I’m on top of the world

But I’m not sure if I should wear my happy face

Because every time I do

It seems to bring bad luck

And something always happens to take my smile away

Sometimes I wake up angry

Because throughout the night

All I heard were noises

Even when the sun just begins to peak

The neighbors dog is waking up the neighborhood with its barking

But putting on my angry face

Just wouldn’t be the way to start any day

So maybe, just maybe,

I have to keep on my serious face

because I can switch from face to face as needed

Love Hurts©

When your partner doesn’t hear you

Not because they can’t
But because they won’t
When you know you deserve better
 But end up with what you see
Is what you get
You are the glue that holds everything together
If you’re not doing it
Nothing will get done
If you’re not buying it
You don’t get what you need
Forget about what you want
When he’s angry
He lashes out at everyone
Especially you
His apologies are few and far in-between
When they do come
They are lacking sincerity and remorse
You try to disguise your pain
But it gets harder each time
As time goes on you become nothing
But a hardened shell
Your own family finds you hard to recognize
No longer do you wear the smile they became so accustomed to seeing
This time your heart seems uncertain if
It can forgive
If it wants to forgive
If it will forgive
Love
Alone
Isn’t the answer to what is broken
In your love
Sometimes
Love just hurts
Sometimes
Hard choices must come about
Sometimes
In the end
Love may just not be worth it
