That Girl

I could never be that girl

The one who looks good in a tight dress

The one who is confident and charming

The one who stands out in a crowd.
I’m the one who’s quiet 

The one who’s happy to be on the sidelines

The one who questions her confidence 

The one who prefers to stay hidden

The Past

I wanted you but you didn’t

I wanted to hope but I couldn’t

I wanted love but lost it

You broke my heart.
I took the leap but you stayed behind

I gave my heart but you were unkind

I was hurt

But you didn’t care.
I was all that but that was before

Because now I have moved on.

Tears For Aleppo

I worry of what to wear

Yet there is a side in the world, somewhere 

Where they worry for their lives.
I listen to music,

They listen to bombings

Nowhere is safe

My heart breaks.
I watch the news

They watch their loved ones die

For them I cry

And pray for their sake.
I  shed tears and share a prayer

For Aleppo

Romance by Edgar Allan Poe

​Romance, who loves to nod and sing

With drowsy head and folded wing

Among the green leaves as they shake

Far down within some shadowy lake,

To me a painted paroquet

Hath been—most familiar bird—

Taught me my alphabet to say,

To lisp my very earliest word

While in the wild wood I did lie,

A child—with a most knowing eye.
Of late, eternal condor years

So shake the very Heaven on high

With tumult as they thunder by,

I have no time for idle cares

Through gazing on the unquiet sky;

And when an hour with calmer wings

Its down upon my spirit flings,

That little time with lyre and rhyme

To while away—forbidden things—

My heart would feel to be a crime

Unless it trembled with the strings.
