A kind of free verse piece
Rebecca worked in a bookstore in a small town, that’s often how her days were spent. She chose that career as more than just a way to pay for the rent, or gas to get around. She adored books.
She’d say they were some of her truest loves in every sense you could possibly think of.
Anyone who knew her would say she was more than a bit obsessed, some might even think it unhealthy, something needing to be seriously addressed.
She read voraciously, everything from full novels to poetry.
She wanted to be a writer too from an early age.
She felt sometimes that other aspects of life could be mundane, she sometimes felt trapped like a caught animal in a cage, but when she’d write, or when she’d read, or help another avid reader find the books they need that’s when she felt the most free.

America was founded on
the principle of limited government
That set up was deliberate
These days though many have forgotten it
& they think we need the government
to babysit our every move, doesn’t it
make you sick to your stomach?
I cannot support that nonsense

Oh the world keeps changing
Day to day it seems
some new tech is all the rage
I still find it a little strange
Things are so quick paced
It’s hard keeping up with everything
Kind of a free verse poem I wrote earlier
She was married in a small town,
all her friends around,
at the reception she was laughing,
dancing til they shut it down
Her wedding was beautiful,
even though, it was nothing fancy
She told her husband:
“Oh I don’t need much
as long as we have faith & I’ve got your love,
recent lyrics/poetry I wrote
I’d take a bullet for the ones I love
I’d give them anything they need
from my last morsel of bread,
to my last breath,
if they needed it to breathe,
even the very heart that beats in me
To me this is one of the best descriptions ever
of what love is like:
Like there’s a thirsty man in a desert thinking he may die
but then out of nowhere, what does he find?
An oasis running through a forgotten paradise
& that sweet oasis truly saves his life
