For Him and My Sanity by b. Malin

Is this the End? And do I Care? Is this the End? I know "YOU" don't think it's Fair. But if I stay, will things Change? Will you Grow? Will you take my hand and journey forth into unknown land? And leave that Shadow of a Man-Child behind? He will hold you back....and you will lose me Forever.

I know that you don't want to Lose me. I really think that you Care, So why are you so "Out There?" So out of Touch With Reality. I just don't think that it's Fair.

I'm so Tired of the Fights, the Angry Words, and our Tears, That Slowly, ever so Slowly are growing with the years. A Man can Change....But "Little Boys" don't have to. It's Your Call.


Sometimes by b. Malin

Sometimes you are my Sunshine. Sometimes you are my Tears. Sometimes you are my Lover. And sometimes you are my Fears.

Sometimes we walk hand in hand, So in Love, so in Love! And Sometimes, those same hands, Shove and Shove.


My Own Enemy by b. Malin

You are destroying me, I want to cry out! Each day a little of me dies. Sometimes I feel so worthless, that I wonder, Did I ever have dreams of my own?

I am young, but never carefree, Now I want to be carefree...But I don't know how. Is it too late to learn? God, I hope not!

Time be good to me. Don't etch new lines of unhappiness and sorrow into my face for all the world to see. For I share these thoughts with no one. But who am I really fooling? Only me, only me.


A Happy b. Malin

Only you can built a mountain. Only you can swim the Sea. Only you can catch your Rainbows, and bring them home to me.

These pieces were kind of exploring a bad relationship...I put it as "I" but it's a combination of a lot of women I've befriended through the years. But thanks so much for commenting....Thanks for following.

Very nice. The words you used in conjunction with each other to convey your thoughts and emotions were perfectly combined. I loved these. My fave is "Sometimes".

Thank you Ladyface. "Sometimes" is done by men and women in relationships. It can be the "mind" as well as the "hands" that shove. Of course it's wrong.

Powerfully written and deep. I remember relationships that felt like this, long ago and far behind, thankfully.
