bein’

is that all there is
have you given everythin’ you got
if this is it
all there is
and there ain’t anymore
why you not pushin’
mind
body
spirit
all the way
what ya doin’
I’ve been waitin’ here
for you
always
to stop bein’ you
and start
bein’

aren’t I worth an effort
you certainly are
glimmers be there
though you hide ’em as best ya can
I know you
I know you
I wish you was inside me now
man, the things we would do
could do
together
don’t ya know
I’d never hurt you
never
I get you
need you so bad
to understand
c’mon

better getta move on
time to steel those wobblin’ guts
have I given’ it my all
man up, AM (insert your initials here)
what the hell
ya waitin’ for
hurry up
before you
and yer words
fade away
to nuttin’
washed-out-selfie
don’t usually post my face but I liked fading the image away with the words-thank you

  1. Beautiful work AnnMarie! Well be still my beating heart words can’tbegin to describe how beautiful and young you look in your picture. AnnMarie= Super duper model. I had a good day today my new med works well and I have been watching movies taking it easy. Good news my wrestling buddy Julia who I thought moved on from our friendship returned to be buddies with me again. I think she was just dealing with some stuff. Excited for football tom. AnnMarie=Number One! woo hoo!

  2. The clarion call, for sure.
    Another voice-strong piece, AM (I’ll bet you could write plays too, superb dialogue being just one of the many tools in your writing bag). I like this a lot, not only for how it’s written but also for what it says.
    Heed the call, Miss.
    P.S. Lovely photo. Now that has “book jacket” written all over it. 🙂

    • alas, another one of those “unsure how it will read” pieces for me
      obviously, I wanted the reader thinking in one direction and then realize oh, it’s me who I must meld with:)
      I went a bit overboard with the language and had to pull it back in a few fathoms
      thank you for your words here,DS
      am:)
      as far as the photo -lol, the more I fade my face, the more I like my pic;)

      • I got that meld twist there, AM. I think it’s great how you can step back and read your own work so objectively. You have a good eye (you also paint/draw great eyes; must be something about “eyes” with you ;)). Re: photo – no need for you to fade; you gots to shine lady! 🙂
