Poem, “Skinny girl & cigarettes”

“Skinny girl & cigarettes”

“Now I get to take a walk

Smoke a cigarette

Four months in the hospital

Feel the air

The snow is coming

I’m just a dreamer


Where will I go next?

Beautiful sadness

I always was that skinny girl

Boyish and strong minded

Who will I befriend?

The coming year

Calling me

  for something

There’s life in homelessness

Temporary home

Relapsing on my anorexia

Chocolates and cigarettes

Colas & love

Heart on my sleeve

Remembering those boys

That I follow

  like home.

Lost little girl.

I’m just a dreamer


Stars in the sky

Remembering radio days

Pouring out my heart to you

Love in my heart

Fear in my eyes

Save me Jesus.

Where am I to go?

Who am I to trust?

Beautiful trust

When you find a beautiful love.

Chasing those boys back home

In my heart

In my heart.

Skinny girl and cigarettes.

Find a way home.

Find a way home.

Mom, let me come home.”

“It’s been so long” lyrics

“It’s been so long since we’ve been together It’s been so long, it breaks my heart. It’s been so long since we’ve been together I feel like I’ve been falling apart. Oh, when will you come back to me?
