Notes

She left on a bad note. Actually a few notes after that.

And between us sat a side note, or was it a note that was sad.

I missed her on a high note. And many notes after that.

She leaves me without a note. Just the impression where one sat.

Guardian Angel

I once saw a guardian angel. She was pushing a cart down the street with everything she owned in it. Her head was down and long was her hair.

I walked up to her and asked where she was going. Why was her view only on the ground below.

She said she had no job to do. No one believed or cared anymore.

She let her head and hair fall to the floor because she was being ignored. And so she was walking as I had found her, until she was needed once more.

I watched as she walked away and felt no dismay.

Before me a guardian angel shone onto the floor and struggled to not be ignored.

Eyes

I could see it in your eyes. A little hidden light as it dies. Holding hands, I’m holding you. I’ve decided to see this through. Shining light, die tonight. Fingers gripped so tight. Steely resolve leaves a mystery unsolved. A feeling of satisfaction just right.

Painted Smiles

Painted smiles. Come paint me now.

Evenly painted, spreading trowel.

Painting happiness, paint me a smile.

A perfect smile to last awhile.

Painting me, let me paint you.

Let me show you what is seen by few.

Painted perfection. Are we perfect yet?

Painting in the outlines others set.

Heart

How do I write this so that you can understand it? And worm my words into your heart.

What is their meaning and where do I take it? Finally carrying words past the start.

Now that I’ve started, I can’t stop myself. As meaning grows from a decision done.

With my resolve you’ll understand me. Pen as clear as the rising sun.
