Nothing but a Fable

Happily ever after doesn’t exist.

Not when people like you also exist.

I bought myself a new suit of armor so you don’t drive another knife in my back.

I told the vendor to hold the stallion because human legs were never for aesthetic purposes.

 

I wanted to walk the face of the Earth with you using my own.

We would’ve walked more than a thousand miles together to chase the sun and avoid the night.

And I never needed to worry about my tired legs.

They built up a tolerance from walking in the coastal sand and helping me keep up with dirty dishes.

 

I told you about my demons and how quickly I am to care when I’m shown an act of kindness.

Mother always lectured me that no matter how small they may be, they are never in vain.

But there is such a thing as being too kind. There is such a thing as temptation.

The best of us cave in once, twice, or maybe more than that when we write in our diaries.

 

You were like such a book to me and I trusted you, but never did I expect that you’d defile my soul

By persuading me to partake in activities that I would never in my right mind do.

I should have recalled the fable of a girl who trusted a poltergeist that haunted a similar diary.

Had I not flee the moment I saw your true character, I would have joined her in death.

 

Looking back, I understand that diaries are the keys to starting fires and turning innocents into fugitives.

You can try with all your might to pry my mouth open to get me to spill any more beans

But my lips are staying sealed because I know who you really are and I finally learned my lesson.

You never exposed me. You only leaked a chapter that was part of a book you never read.

 

So why bother showing it to you knowing that my real friends and family will be endangered as well?

I know that a deluded man gambled away so much ammo to the vipers that he became a trainwreck.

I swear on my recurring nightmares that any answers to your questions will be used against me.

Truth and justice is a concept invented by people and after all, people do make mistakes.

 

God bless the right to remain silent.

Because even the condemned understand that its value supersedes a vault of gold

That the draconian blackjack dealers steal from the poor that desire to play with them.

Where was Robin Hood when I needed him most?

 

Flash forward to a single year and I’m now twenty-five with an art degree in hand.

I’ve spent all that time studying my ass off and avoiding the vipers that plague my past.

I was with my true friends who never give a shit about your deceit when I realized I never needed you.

Preparing for financial exams under the tutelage of a bright mathematician was like you never existed.

 

So the next time you see me, I won’t grovel on the pavement begging you to take me back.

Instead, I’ll look the other way and French kiss my new admirer in front of you.

Just to let you know that I changed for the better and you missed out on the life we could’ve had.

I am fortunate to understand that your absence last summer turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

 

I dare you to call me an idiot again!

I dare you to call me a chicken!

I dare you to say that I’m going down

While you hide behind the blackjack dealers that love you for show!

 

There’s always someone out there willing to give you a taste of your own medicine anyway.

How did it feel when even Discordia didn’t want anything to do with you?

Was it salty and sour like your attitude and your deceit?

Cavities caused by the consumption of these candies are a pain for dentists to fill.

 

And just like that, you disappeared from the face of the Earth again. Hopefully, for good this time.

You can erase your identity from the world, but you cannot erase the marks your venom left behind.

You may still be on my mind from time to time, but I don’t see you in a virtuous light anymore.

You are nothing but a fable.

Miss your smiles

 

 

                              miss your smiles                              

 

you both were the lite of my life and i chrished every moment to start 

your love matched your compassionate and oh so  gentle caring heart

and i think I would give up all I holds dear and walk a thousand miles 

just to see your shining smile light up the room god I do miss your smile 

you made me see the beauty in life just by being you and giving me your love

sometimes i can feel the vsadness in my soul when think about you in heaven above

and sometimes i feel  pride in my heart when i tell storys about both of you

but mostly I know that i was the luckiest daughter in the world smiling all the while

and how I wish incould talk to you once more to tell you that i miss your smile 

your smile and joy went a long way in making me feel like a happy and blessed daughter

and the memories of you both I will  hold close to myself that will always matter

 to see you again would mean more joy then i have ever felt and will never go out of style

but as I looks up to the heavens above i whisper i love you both and i sure do miss your smiles.

you both were the lite of his life and he chrished every moment he had

your beauty matched your compassionate and oh so  gentle caring dad 

and i think your dad would give up all he holds dear and walk a thousand miles 

just to see your shining smile light up the room god he does miss your smile 

you made him see the beauty in life just by being you and giving him your love

sometimes i can see the sadness in his eyes when he talks about you in heaven above

and sometimes i see pride in there depths when he tells me storys about both of you

but mostly he tells me that he was the luckyest father who ever lived smiling all the while

and how he wishes he could talk to you once more to tell you that he misses your smile 

your smile and joy went a long way in making him feel like a happy and blessed father

and the memories of you both he holds close to himself that will always matter

 to see you again would mean more joy then he has ever felt and will never go out of style

but as he looks up to the heavens above he whispers i love you both and i sure do miss your smiles.

Mysterious Smile

She sits at the corner,


Next to the window,


Whenever I look at her,


Her cheeks glow!


 

The glow does appear,


Because of her superb smile,


The smile that removes fear,


And spreads love worthwhile!



Her smile is magic!

 

Seeing it I feel ecstatic!

I was thinking of you today 2015

i was thinking of you today 2015

 

 

i was thinking of you today and missing the smile you held for me to see

 

the way you always held me when i cried was worth its wieght in gold to me

 

i was thinking of you today and thinking of all those times you gave me courage

 

you've told me of those days gone by and those memories of a timeless age

 

i was thinking of you today and my mind went back to when you went away

 

god took you from my life too soon and i begged for him to let you stay

 

i was thinking of you today and thought of all the sacrafices that you've made

 

one for your country and one for the lord and one for us that would never fade

 

i was thinking of you today and remembered the endless love you gave

 

and i wish i could hold you once again the love you gave us is what i crave

 

i was thinking of you today and know in heaven you'll never go away

 

lately im missing you so much that it had me thinking of you today

*I Need You*

March-15-2001 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins

There is a freedom in your arms 
That carries me through 
Your love, Your kisses, Your charm 
I need you

To take away the pain 
When I'm down 
To take away the tears when i cry 
To take away my frown 
To help bring me up when i feel like to die

I need you 
Like the rain 
That replenishes the earth 
Like a lovers touch takes away the pain 
When the sun 
Keeps the skies above blue 
I need you 
You know how to make me smile 
You know how to have fun

I need you 
You know how to treat me 
Deep down inside i see your true 
You set my uncertainties free 
In your eyes i know this you knew

Your touch gives me strength 
And heals my broken heart 
To keep your love i'll go to any length 
Because God knows we are not meant to part

Smile lines :)

There it is,

your infectious laugh!

catching me off guard and pulling me into light

smiling glints of warm in your eyes

every slight, every insult lashed upon my grace

forgotten,  melted away,

lost in that throaty yet light warm chuckle,

oozing charm and charisma every time 

I am lost in your joy, 

hug me close and make me feel alive and real

kiss my love with your soul 

wrap me in your happiness 

its the only kind I live for...

 

 

hugss 

xo

And She Smiles

I can’t take off my eyes,


Whenever I see her,


Before me here and there,


Just then I feel as if I touched the skies.


 

She is a moving deity,


Of beauty and grace,


Belonging to the place,


Known as Greek mythology.


 

Happiness does embrace me,


Whenever I think of her being lonely.
