Lost Child

Lost child-
Your innocence was taken
By a man who spit on your soul.
The damage was done,
You couldn’t even run
From the fear that swallowed you whole.
You cry in the night
And by day hide your fright
From the people who know not the truth
Your dreams were forsaken
By the act that had taken
The purity of your youth

Lost child-
You are consumed with the pain
Caused by acts of long ago.
You were left to live,
And learn to forgive,
But how can you let it go?
As you make your way
Through the reality of the day
And the dreams that flood your sleep,
What hides behind
The shadows of your mind
Comes out at night to creep.

Age 27

The Fog

Break through the barriers that surround your soul
Try to find answers to truths untold
Off on a tangent of emotional noise
You failed to make a rational choice
Crimson and clover and purple haze
You’ve found yourself in an endless maze
You reach out for things beyond your grasp
The fog thickens and the piper laughs
Wicked laughter penetrates your ears
Drums pound and heighten your fears
The dark knight will swallow you whole
And spit out the dreams that exist in your soul

Age 27


Cry for these people who,
In all of their confusion
And turmoil, agony and pain,
Sit, lonely, on a rock.
What a thought filled rock.
Hundred year old dreams.
Ninety-thousand schemes.
Why do you cry,
Little girl?
Would you like some candy,
Little girl?
Mommy wouldn’t mind,
Little girl.
Don’t look back.
The cars and busses and
trains and planes
Are rushing by.
Why do you cry?
Put him in the rubber room.
Can you see a purple frog?
Filth and grime.
Are we all mimes?
Painted smiles.
Painted tears.
Cover all your emotion, man!
Live behind your disguise.
But I can see your eyes
And hear your cries.
Flies buzz and fly.
Oh my!
What confusion.
Look around.
What is found?
You are Alone!

Age 27

Desires Are Forbidden Here

There are places I go in my mind
Where fantasies seem so real at times.
What I hunger for is very clear
But desires are forbidden here.
Monsters of madness
Darken my dream.
People I encounter
Are not as they seem.
I wear a painted smile
In a land of no tears.
I search for my courage
In a land of no fears.
The things that I want
Are the things I can’t obtain.
I reach out to touch them,
But they move further away.
Running blind, I go nowhere;
My destination is not revealed.
Looking behind, I see nothing
But the darkness on my heels.
I am lost and alone
In a world of no tears,
Forsaken and benumbed
In a world of no fears.

Age 27

3AM – Matchbox 20

This seems very appropriate for me right now

She says it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She’s always worried about things like that
She says it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it’s raining
And she screams and her voice is straining


She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She’s got a little bit of something, God it’s better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she’s got it all
She swears the moon don’t hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it’s raining
And she screams and her voice is straining


She believes that life is made up of all that you’re used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it’s stopped raining


Scorpions Concert – San Diego CA

Well, it has been a hell of a four years and I haven’t been to any concerts until now.  I got married, had a baby, overcame the biggest challenge of my life, and now, am pregnant with my second child.  Mark got tickets to the Scorpions and it is so nice to go to a concert with him.  Of course, I am pregnant, so I can’t drink, but someday my child will be able to brag that he was at a Scorpions concert before he was even born!  That’s pretty cool!  The concert was fantastic and Mark and I couldn’t have been happier.

Holiday – Scorpions

This is one of Mark’s favorite songs and we went to the Scorpions concert tonight.  I am pregnant, so this will be the theme song for my child.

Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday
Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday

Exchange the cold days for the sun
A good time and fun
Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday

Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday
Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday

Exchange your troubles for some love
Wherever you are
Let me take you far away
Youd like a holiday

Longing for the sun you will come
To the island without name
Longing for the sun be welcome
On the island many miles away from home
Be welcome on the island without name
Longing for the sun you will come
To the island many miles away from home

Eyes Wide Open

Wake up in the light of a new day.
Listen to what the world has to say.
Dreams fade
Reality blooms
Is one different
From the other?
Day turns to night.
Night turns to day.
Darkness is so bright sometimes.
You want to turn away
But where can you go?
What can you say?
Who is really listening
In the darkness of the day?

Age 25

Man In The Box – Alice In Chains

This song will forever be etched in my mind as a reminder of my wedding and it always makes me smile.  The lyrics are short, but the song is long and it is the amazing beat of the song that really does it.

Im the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Wont you come and save me, save me

Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now youve sewn them shut

Im the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in shit
Wont you come and save me, save me

Guns N Roses Concert – Phoenix AZ

I am living down in Yuma now, but Mark and I and a couple of Mark’s friends, all took a drive up to Phoenix for this concert.  It was great, except Axel Rose was throwing some kind of temper tantrum and threatening not to do the show.  He finally decided to do the show, but it started way late.  There were tons of girls in the crowd sitting on their guys shoulders with their tops off, so I decided to show off my chest too.  That was fun.  I got a Guns N Roses G-String and we all got pretty trashed.  Fun times!!
