Pretend

Sometimes I pretend I was someone else

To escape this reality for a while.

I could be an astronaut

A pilot

Or an actress playing these parts.

I could be the hero

Or the villain

The one saving the dragon

Or the dragon itself.

I pretend, to keep sane

Ditch The Ball

He asked,

“Why aren’t you going to the ball?”

I answered,

“I don’t want to wear something I hate

Just to impress people I don’t like.”

That’s it,

That’s all

Yes, I’m ditching the ball.

I Took My Time

I walked the same road that others took

They were all moving too fast

I picked up my pace and I stumbled

No one helped or extended a hand

I was low

And so I decided

To take my own step

My own pace

My own time

Dreamy Dreams

Hold me

Kiss me

Don’t ever let go

If dreams were made to last forever

Let this one go on

Sure Real

Eyes of blue that penetrate the very core of your soul

A smile that intensifies each time you see it

And my heart flutters like butterflies on first flight

That voice, angelic and soft and calm

Makes you wonder if he’s real or just a dream within a dream

I could never fathom how someone this real, could be unreal all at the same time

Identity

I wondered who I am

If I’m defined as to who I’ll be

Or who I really am

Do they see?

See the real me?

Or do they judge me by the peers that I am with

I feel misunderstood often

I even misunderstand myself

I need to find myself

And they need to stop labelling me

Self Absorbed

Walk on air

Care for no one but yourself

This is about you and you alone

Take care of your own

He And I, A Movie

If my life was a movie

Would him and I end up happy?

Pollute

I look around and see smog

Dirt, dirty

I can hardly breathe

Air!

Fresh air! But where?

What have we done?

My Decision

I loved and lost

Better to have lost than not, as they say

And now I wander

Choosing the path not many would take

But I take it as I go

And that is that

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
