23 of 27: I Did.

I did
Everything
Plus so much more
There was only one set
Sandy Footprints
All mine

You were not there
No shoulder to cry on
No arms to hold me
No arms carrying me
Nothing felt
No caring love

My legs are
Burning tired
My arms so weak
Lifting anything is
An impossibility

My lungs
Gasping for air
My heart
Aches with saddness
My vision
Blurry fatigued

My mind
Wonders
What I ever did
To deserve
Such wicked punishment

I'm a good girl
Doing my level best
Showing kindness as much
As humanly able

I have given
More compassion
Than I've ever
Eexperienced myself

I have no shame
Doing my best
In such wicked conditions
The shame is God's alone

Where was God
Clear path not shown
Safe path hidden
No shield or sword
To protect me

The beasts attacked
Relentlessly
The plagues and vermin
Taking their toll
Repeatedly

I never went to
The House of the Rising Sun
Drinks few and
Far in-between
I never smoked
Until damage was already done
Now I beg that Cannabis
Heal My wounds

My greatest fault
Swearing
Yelling
In vain
To keep the beasts
Off me
The plagues
Out of me

Now I lay
Scared and
Scarred

My brain
So damaged
I can no longer
Determine
Reality from illusion
Afraid
Sanity is all gone

God promised it was
All okay
God promised
He was on my side

Then why do I
Feel like a
Woman
Raped, beaten,
And scorned
God forsaken
Alone and wounded

22 of 27: Smell

He smells
So good
Like musky forests
On sunny days

Cologne on
Fresh skin
Delightful to
Olfactory nerves

Too close for comfort
Senses blurr
Cheeks flush
Loins afire
Distraction is
Quite the understatement

Desire to touch
'Tis forbidden
Lumps in throats
Hard to clear

Better to hide
Nay run in fear
It's only desired
Because it's forbidden
Least they say

It's not forbidden
By my paradigm
Only by theirs
Only by ones' choice
Leveled on me

Yet maybe there's an
Alternate
He's not the only one
Alive, attractive, or
Smelling so damn good.

I'm ready for my
Alternatives
I'm ready to explore
Other options

I'm ready for
Surprise and delights
Especially to
My olfactory nerves

19 of 27: Your Magic

Believe in yourself
Thoughts take shape
Feelings becoming
Tangible evidence
Dreams emerge
Like figures clearing
Heavy fog
Threatening to envelope
Misty ├ęthers
Of minds' wanderings
Only focused belief
Can overcome
Producing desires' gifts
Solidifying visions
Fantasied tangents
Becoming tactile substance
Enjoyable material
Made real by
Meditative notions
Simply because of
Focused repetition
Your Magic
Landen in
Your mind
Believe in yourself
I do

11 of 27: Keep Jumping

Tiny legs
Bounce bounce
Look ma 'm jumpin'
Sweetest smile
Grins
Ear to ear
Curly locks
Bounce bounce
Wheee
Gasp
Giggle
Gasp
Two tiny feet
Up
Down
All around
So fast
A blurr
To see
Happy
Wobbles
Round and round
Faster
Faster
Don't slow down
Stop
Breathe
Bedtime
See
Battery pulled
Power down
Calm wiggles
Settle
Down
Snuggles soothe
Binky squeaks
Time for
A good
Long
Snooze
