Dusty Coins

I’ve paved my path with gold, but the path lead to deception,
I filled my heart with love, but my heart ended up breaking,
I built my castle with all I had, but it crumbled under my tears,
I pressed on with all my hope, but I’m tired after all these years,
Like a vine on a trellis I’ll keep climbing even when things look bleak,
Like a dusty coin I’ll keep shining and one day I’ll find my peace.

A Quiet Plea

You are worth more than I diamond ring
You are my blessing as well as my sin
Please protect my heart and my mind
These are the rarest of all tender finds
When things are foggy and simply unclear
Please be my light and shoo all my fears
The happiness I see when I look in your eyes
I see that it’s you… You are my prize


Who would have thought that you’d ever exist
You looked at me once and fulfilled my wish
You did not judge and you made me smile
I haven’t felt like that in awhile

The only request that you had of me
Was to give you my heart openly
It feels like I’m walking the clouds of my dreams
When everything may not be what it seems

You came to me with truth in all that you do
But all that I really wanted is you

A Captured Mind

It happens so fast
You cannot help who you love
It may have been one
Or all those above

Something so strong
It could tear out your heart
It cuts through you like butter
And you fall apart

Beyond the strings
Of distance and time
You’re drawn like a magnet
They’ve captured your mind

You wear your armour
Made of your smiles
The attraction you feel
Is more than just “mild”

You long to hold them
And be by their side
They’re just out of your reach
So your emotions you hide


I’ll retreat into my slumber
While thoughts run through my mind
Some things I’m bound to forget
Some things I’ll leave behind

The darkness destroys all light
As the quiet loudly grows
My eyes and ears deceive me
Making life a glorious show

Looking forward may be a mystery
Causing me to stop and wonder
Many things still go unanswered
So I’ll retreat into my slumber

Halloween around the corner!

I’m sure we are all surrounded by the aromas of pumpkin spice, the smells of new plastic from the Halloween wigs and the sounds of spooky cackling throughout the stores and malls.  Halloween is less than a week away and there is so much preparation that needs to be done.

I will be hosting a children’s party this Halloween, my 2 nephews will be sleeping over for the first time so in total I will have 7 boys in my house!  Aaahh!  I have a dinner menu in mind complete with baked decorated treats and I also have some games lined up.

I still haven’t decided what I will be dressing up as, but I have a couple ideas I’m working on.

We opened our new radio show, Talk Loud Radio, last night and it really got me in the mood for Halloween.  It was a great show and we had a lot of fun!  Working a show isn’t the easiest with a lot of preparation behind the scenes, glitches when one goes live, etc.  but if you have a great cohost, you can really enjoy being creative and expressive.

Halloween Special Show:
Hope you are all enjoying this Fall season so far! 🙂


The Test

When you are away and
I feel all alone

I carry you with me
Where ever I go

I’ll wait for you
Through all sleepless nights

The sadness hidden
and emptiness I fight

You’re out of my hands and
Far from my grasp

I cling to the moments
We shared in our past

Until we unite and
We finally embrace

I’ll keep living life
With a smile on my face

There is no guarantee and
My trust issue is tested

I think of your promise
My heart is invested

I don’t have to wonder
What my future will be

I just drift off to dream and
It’s you who I see

When my work is done

My chai is iced
My frap is slushed
My cookie is huge
I’m in a rush

My dog’s going blind
He bumps into walls
He still runs the show
When it comes to bone brawls

It’s a quiet morning
Except for the crickets
Chirping morning, noon, nite
Just to get dem digits

The house is still calm
No movements around
I sip my drink smiling
At the lack of all sounds

My trusty pup by my side
With paper and pen
I write about life and
All the places I went

My final chapter
Looks pretty sweet
I’ll meet beautiful people
During all my retreats

I’ll find my freedom
In the big fluffy clouds
No one to tell me
What is not allowed

My last hurrah will bring
Happy tears to my eyes
I’ll be at ease and
In comfort, I’ll smile

I’ll look back on my triumphs
Feeling joyous and pleased
My life’s work will be done
Then forever I’ll sleep

In a nutshell

My hair is messy and
Completely unkempt

My nail polish is chipped and
I overspend

I laugh whenever
There’s stress going on

I make up words to
My favourite songs

I watch my favourite movies
At least 20 times each

I need a stool because
I’m too short to reach

I do my best work
With a paper and pen

My favourite number is
Lucky number “7”

I’m a little chaotic but,
I don’t plan to change

Most people I meet
Think that I’m strange

I love to eat and
I eat a lot!

That’s me in a nutshell
accept me or not

Having a Day…

When the pan’s too hot and
I burn my eggs
I get a knife and the butter, but
I’m all outta bread

I pour a cup of coffee, but
the milk is all gone
I look out the window
as a dog shits on my lawn

I wear a nice dress then
I trip and I fall
I text while I’m walking
right into a wall

I’m in a rush but
I’ve gotta get gas
A stranger stares as I scream,

I text my friends
and no one replies
I’ve lost the count
of all of my sighs

Sign says the slush machine is
“Broken” today…
and I just KNOW there’s a bill
I forgot to pay

I take a shower but
I’m outta shampoo
and hey..wouldn’t you know
I’m outta conditioner too

I hide under my pillow and
try to sleep
then 5 minutes later my phone
starts to beep

I open my texts and prepare
what I will say
to a simple question of
“How was your day?”

My friends and I text all our
troubles away
And how we can’t wait for
a nice long vacay.
