Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

unsuperstitious

13 September 2013

unsuperstitious

 

my black cat never crossed my path

it knew better,

 

with glee I stomped on sidewalk cracks

so watch your back

 

I sought ladders and ran under

still I wonder

 

I used to break a new mirror

each seven years

 

salt shakers were always spilled too

it didn’t prove

 

nothing ever happened to me

Friday thirteenth

 

superstitions still make me smile

once in awhile

 

I disregard the unexplained

I’m not afraid

 

I doubt that that will ever change

but life is strange

speak of love

03 September 2013

speak of love

 

some hearts can speak of love they’ve known, of love

that’s yet to be,

 

some hearts can speak of love that is, of love

that’s still alive

 

some hearts can speak of love almost, of love

that was just dreamed

 

some hearts can’t speak of love at all, of love

that was denied

 

some hearts do all of this and more, for love

is poetry.

convertible

20 August 2013

 

convertible

 

I wish I possessed a convertible,

a life I mean

 

I want to put the top down, feel the breeze

and free my soul

 

turn up the radio and sing along

drive just to drive

 

enjoy the view, the sun’s warmth on my face

the openness

 

if it rains, I can cover up again

and hide inside

 

yes, if only life were convertible

just imagine

parting thought

07 July 2013

 

 

parting thought

 

 

I could wish you well on your way to Hell

as my farewell,

 

I should be upset, and full of regrets

we even met

 

I should speak my mind, be mean, and unkind,

but not this time.

 

I have never been one for bitter ends

or poison pens;

 

so I’ll just let go, accept it, although

why I don’t know.

 

It’s better this way, to just walk away

nothing to say.

resembling

07 July 2013

 

resembling

 

I do not see,

but someone insists so adamantly,

 

you remind me,

you know, of that famous celebrity

 

not exactly,

but close enough that you could almost be

 

you must agree

there is a certain similarity

 

personally,

I think the resemblance is uncanny

 

names escape me,

but I guess you know who it is I mean

 

and probably,

you’ve heard this a million times already

 

yes, stop it, please,

it’s hard enough sometimes resembling me.

Eventually

18 June 2013

Eventually

 

Don’t pity me,

I blame no one else for this tragedy.

 

Yes, sure I grieve,

so much has been lost which can’t be retrieved.

 

Somehow I’ll learn

to accept that which cannot be returned

 

and once I do,

I’ll rediscover the power to choose.
