Betrayal Hurt And Lies

Betrayal, Hurt, Lies
Your betrayal hurt when I needed you in the time of need,
They say looks are deceiving; well your look did deceive,
Your lies were hurtful but I got the last laugh,
You think you’re hurting me, please, you’re in my past
Your lies cut deep wounds like a butcher knife,
Hurts worst in my trials and tribulation when I needed you in my life,
Your heart it hurt but God will judge,
I refuse to do so; I’ll just leave it to the man above
While you laughed I cried now it vice versa,
You thought I was sick but look who’s looking for a cure,
You turned your back and hurt me with words,
And thought you could take my life, you got the nerves,
My will to say is you had the laugh once upon a time,
Something you should know the future is mine, …

Does Heaven Have A Number

Does heaven have a phone number?
Mommy went to heaven,
but I need her here today.
My tummy hurts and I fell down;
I need her right away.

Operator, can you tell me
how to find her in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part?
I don’t know where to look.

I think my daddy needs her too,
at night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes,
but I really don’t know why.

Maybe if I call her,
she will hurry home to me.
Is heaven very far away?
Is it across the sea?

She’s been gone a long, long time-
she needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her.
I simply don’t know how.

Help me find the number, please.
Is it listed under “heaven”?
I can’t read these big, big words;
I am only seven.

I’m sorry, operator,
I didn’t mean to make you cry.
Is your tummy hurting too–
or is there something in your eye?

If I call my church
maybe they will know.
Mommy said when we need help
that’s where we should go.

I found the number to my church
tacked up on the wall.
Thank you, operator
I’ll give them a call.…

My Love For You

You never stay mad at me, no matter what I do,
That’s one of the reasons why I’m in love with you.
Even though there’s those days that really suck,
I’m still here cause of mom and a little bit of luck.
When there’s those times I can’t stop crying,
I remember it was because of me lying.
The day you said you were done,
I never expected to lose my number one.
Hurting you was the worst thing I could do,
I’m sorry for everything bad I did to you.
My heart breaks a little every day,
I hope to have you back by the month of May.
Remember the saying true love never ends,
Well I love you more than just as my friend.
As of right now all I can do is wait,
And hope that someday you’ll be my mate.
The love that I have will always be true,
Please don’t give up hope, whatever you do.
You know you will always love me,
In your arms is where I should be.
You’re loving, sweet, and will always care,
Finding anyone like you is very rare.
If someday you decide to come back to me,
Everything between us will be better, you will see.
Whatever you ask me to do,
Remember I’m doing it cause I love you!

I Remember

I remember.
I remember everything.
What feelings and words beg to forget,
I remember.
When I remember, it rains,
Pouring out of the windows of my face.
When I remember, I’m there.
He hit me hard across my face,
My cheek stung.
His hands shook my shoulders,
My head shook back and forth,
Like a rag doll.
He punched my stomach.
I couldn’t breath.
But that’s not what happened.
That’s what it felt like.
He left no scar,
No injury,
No outward bruising.
I was safe,
Miles away from imminent danger and him,
But his presence was here,
Hiding behind the screen from which he drew his power.
I read the words.
My eyes burned,
Searing the white hot words on to memory.
I suffer,
Because I remember.
Because I am careful,
I let no one too close.
I am alone,
But I am safe.
So I remember.

The Paper Boat

I once have had a leaf of note
And made a change by cut and fold;
It paved me way to cross the route,
The sea of myth where waves have rolled.

I’m captain of my own accord,
I carry on my hopes aboard;
I’ll never stop and this I pledge
Until I reach the ocean’s edge.

I sailed along the blowing wind
Against the rushing, flowing stream;
So clueless where my ship will end
Cause reaching sea is but a dream.

My voyage reached a thousand miles
To search the mystic dreamer’s isles;
But neither boat nor paper plane
Will stand so still when comes the rain.

Must I regret when I’m on brink—
Of stepping unto heaven’s shore?
The boat I made from dream will sink
If I just knew, I’ll sail no more.
