I Am A Woman StereotypedI Am A Woman Stereotyped
I am covered as marble
White liquid forming steel
Around my body it tightens
Clinging to every curve of fragile form
I am a woman
Silenced by the stone
Colorless without label
Invisible is my home
I am a woman
Statue they whisper
As the goddesses of old
More beautiful than Aphrodite, a work of art
I am a woman
Choked by the brick
Waters melted thick
Pouring down my throat
Take my place they shout defiling me so
Be what I am...
What they "think" I should be
I am a woman... Stereotyped
Tomorrow Might BeTomorrow might be the day when my face hits the gravel of the parking lot
Dark stones calling for me, anxious to see my demise
Though I walk along the pavements with my toes swollen in anguish
Still I have not fallen
Desperately the pebbles call to me
Leaving a spot open near the neighboring fence
Close enough to haunt me of my peril and far enough to tease me with a home.
Either way I felt the poverty dripping in the sweat from my face.
Garbage! I smell garbage!
Beaten by the sun 100 degrees and still I burn
Hotter and hotter, still
My flesh peels and I burn
Tears escape my heart
Windows letting fear flow
Anger.. I'm not strong enough to feel
Fear... Has become my reality
A knock will come
A phone will ring
Thirst cannot be quenched
My stomach will scream for nourishment
My ribs will protrude from my flesh
My body will collapse in weakness
Tomorrow... Tomorrow might be the day.

MermanHe who basks within the deep
Hiding from his lover who tenderly weeps.
Her heart shredding, tears drop upon the lake
They drift silently beneath seeking your face.
Your eyes pierce the abyss
Yearning for her gentle lips, longing your beloved's kiss
How can I ever call to her when I am no normal man?
How can we be together if I am the sea and she is the land?
The disgrace of a myth sulks in his despair, dreading his ancient song he swims hoping to disappear.
The waters speak sending ripples to the bank
Serenading his love...
The song of a lonely Merman.
