The Fall

September 27, 2012 at 4:27 am (Friendship and Relationships)

Things fell to pieces
Desperate days and nights
We fell apart
With words and fights

I said hateful words
You did too
Lie after lie
Wondering if anything was true

Silence Wasn’t Golden

November 29, 2011 at 11:34 pm (Friendship and Relationships)

The autumn leaves fell silently down from the huge oak trees as the wind whispered about. The air was cold, crisp and welcoming winter to arrive. I was walking to a friends house whom had invited me over for hot cocoa. I had about four more blocks to go. It was a nice walk , so I had no reason not to save gas and exercise. I felt good in my new blue jeans and tan coat with my red warm scarf. I hadn’t bothered to pull my hair back so it hung down off my shoulders freely in auburn natural curls. I enjoyed the quiet walk alone, but as the sky grew darker I became paranoid that I was being followed. I stopped and stood, pretending to glance up at the sky, and then did a slight turn around and looked behind me. I felt foolish, and childish. No monster was stalking me. I continued along and thought about my work which was required for tomorrow. I was a house keeper and maid for an elderly couple who lived up in a mansion. Perhaps that was exaggerated a bit, but it was a fine house. Large but not to large that made you feel hopelessly small. The Bendtsons are such a sweet couple, quite generous with my paycheck too. Today, when I gathered my things about to head home for the evenings Mr. Bendtson gave me me an extra tip.

“ You sure do know how to make this place shine Ms. Jennifer. Treat yourself to something nice.” Mr. Bendtson had said in his gruff but sincere voice.

“Well thank you, but its unnecessary, really, I get my paycheck this weekend.” I laughed and pulled my hat on over my ears.

“If you don’t accept my gift now, I’ll have to write it in along with your check. Either way your going to have it. Me and Edna really appreciate such a kind , sweet, and honest house keeper. “ He said handing me a 100 dollar bill.

I took it and placed it into my wallet and then tucked my wallet into my purse. “ Mr. Bendtson you are a generous man, and a stubborn one too if I may say so. Have a nice evening.” I smiled and he nodded and winked as I opened the door and closed it.

I hadn’t realized how far I had walked until I was a house past my lovely friends house. I thoughts had distracted me. I turned around and reached her side walk that led up to her pouch. The light was on for me since it was reasonably dark and getting darker as the evening went by. I rapped twice on the door knocker which was beige and designed with metal flowers that curled around it. I never stopped to observe that detail until now. The doorknob was jolting. I soon saw a familiar face.

“ Jennifer! Come in, come in. Its a bit chilly now huh?” she said sounding a bit flustered. I nodded and stepped in and closed the door behind me.

“Yes, it is a bit I suppose, how about that hot chocolate or tea?” I said smiling. We turned a corner into the kitchen. Madeline’s kitchen was filled with a wonderful aroma. Warm freshly baked cookies. I took a seat at her oval table for six. I watched as Madeline opened her oven and pulled out the pan with her panda bear mitts. The cookies looked delicious. I rubbed my eyes and pushed my hair out of my face.

“Oh these cookies look yummy , do they not? Oh, the kettles on with hot water, the cocoa is somewhere in the cabinet to my right. Do you mind, I’ll get the cookies onto a plate if you will fix us some cocoa.” she said while she searched for a spatula. I got up and found the cocoa. I saw two mugs sitting on the counter. They were clean so I scoped 3 scoops of cocoa into them and poured in the hot water. Madeline handed me a spoon without me having to ask. I stirred them.

“ So, how is your job doing? The Bendtsons right?” she twisted her hair up and used a tie on her wrist to tie her long blond hair up.

“Oh its a blessing, working for them. They really are a neat couple. I feel closer to them then I do my own parents.” I brought the mugs over to the table as she placed the cookies down too.

“That’s wonderful. How are your parents doing anyhow? Have you contacted them recently?” she looked into my eyes as I looked away. I lied,” Yes I spoke to them yesterday, they’re doing just fine.” Madeline moaned as she took one bite from the warm cookie.

“Oh , Jen, you have to try one. “ she motioned to the plate. I reached for one and took a bite. A incredible burst of sweetness melted in my mouth. They were better than any I ever tasted.

You saw thru me

August 19, 2011 at 3:23 am (Friendship and Relationships)

Blink of an eye

and touch of your hand,

you saw thru me,

you could understand.

A small hug,

but the meaning was big,

you saw thru me,

no more pretend gig.

I could not pretend,

or fake a smile,

you saw thru me

there is no denial.

I thought I could hide,

and create a new me,

but of course,

you saw thru me.

Break me or make me

August 11, 2011 at 11:08 pm (Friendship and Relationships)

You tore me down

or built me up,

but you never made your mind

completely up.

Im tired of your changes

and not ever knowing,

either jump the fence

or ill be going.

Your brain was wack

and your actions were out of hand,

either you be a jerk ,

or be my man.

I was sick of the games

and your uncalled for yelling,

 i said listen up now , but i was done,

your games were no longer compelling.

You called yourself ‘the man”

but you acted like a little boy,

if you were here now,

id break you like a cheap plastic toy.

Brake me or make me,

just make up your mind,

im tired of having to get you out,

of every single bind.

Can’t You See I Care?

August 10, 2011 at 4:29 am (Friendship and Relationships)

My gosh, isn’t it obvious?

I care about you-

I know you say it’s not my job,

but I still do-

 

For crying out loud,

Why can’t I care about you?

Is it because you’re to proud?

To let me prove what’s true?

You make this difficult,

extremely hard on me-

Im looking out for your best interests,

cant you even try to see?

Cannot Defend

July 17, 2011 at 3:05 am (Friendship and Relationships)

Bruise on my leg

cut on my cheek

I cannot defend

for I am to weak.

A blow to my head

a kick to my shin,

I cannot defend

I would never win.

Your eyes burn

deep into my mind

your trying to seek my weak spot

or any advantage you can find.

He who cares

sees my pain

he wants to protect me

from your sick twisted game.

You say im worthless

and I deserve what I get

but he says I’m perfect

and he’s not through fighting for me yet.

For my life and happiness

he makes a stand

to always protect me

from your abusive hand.

no trace of you…

July 15, 2011 at 2:49 am (Friendship and Relationships)

I look at the surrounding,

this place where we met,

its completely astounding,

i faintly remember but yet…

I can almost feel you,

sitting by this tree,

and when the words were few,

the kiss came instantly…

The feeling is so strong,

the memories flood back,

when we were together nothing was wrong,

but now- its the opposite of that…

You left me,

wandering without a hope in this place,

wishing you back in my arms,

but you left no trace…

This is a sad ending,

I thought we were real,

you were just pretending,

so my vulnerable heart you could steal…

Not even a goodbye,

just a moment of ending bliss,

a rose thrown away and left to die,

this pain caused by a beautiful first kiss…

Beautiful

June 18, 2011 at 2:09 am (Friendship and Relationships)

Softly spoken, the wind speaks to the water

rippling off into unique waves

crashing and colliding

splashing at ease.

The trees whisper

and shake their leaves

creating a musical purformance

just for you.

The sun-bright as ever

occasionaly clouds passing by

but mostly baby blue

fills the sky.

Birds chirping

all singing their own tune

the air is sweetly scented

like the winds own purfume.
