Cruel Words


Barbed comments; from a beloved one

Can pierce to the heart of ones heart

Leaving no safety net too fall on

As its structure is ripped apart


They dim the light that brightly shone

Carried swift in a poisoned dart

Barbed comments; from a beloved one

Can pierce to the heart of ones heart


Knifed edged tongue spars derision

Words erupt in dramatic art

Rhetoric remarks sting and smart

Cutting right down to splintered bone

Barbed comments; from a beloved one

Can pierce to the heart of ones heart

Believe in Self Belief


Take a risk and leave the shadows

With vibrant clothes that sing out loud

Be yourself in rhythmic echoes

Emerge with strength, discard the shroud.


Draw your breath as the music grows

Play your cards, to the captive crowd

Take a risk and leave the shadows

With vibrant clothes that sing out loud.


Hail! The gift of melodic vows

With which we are richly endowed

Blow the whistle silvery proud

Hear the applause, embrace the bows

Take a risk and leave the shadows

With vibrant clothes that sing out loud.

One day I'll fall in love

Rondel Supreme


One day I'll fall in love

With another, than myself

Be like finding a treasure trove

Oh such joy, oh such wealth


Along the road of pleasure I drove

Encountering a friendly elf

One day I'll fall in love

With another, than myself


My untangled web I wove

Cautiously and with stealth

This could be good for my health

Must be an omen, that white dove

One day I'll fall in love

With another, than myself

My Guiding Light

(Rondel Supreme)


I walk towards my guiding light

Which shines a path of golden glow

It leads my soul through blackest night

And steers me through times of sorrow


When I stay true, it shines so bright

And when I stray, it dips down low

I walk towards my guiding light

Which shines a path of golden glow


The choice is clear, for wrong or right

I always reap just what I sow

And where I am is where I go

Love can achieve far more than might

I walk towards my guiding light

Which shines a path of golden glow
