Red Coat E-mail
Written by Janine Colon   

Dark streets are in your vision
Your red coat keeps rustling in the wind
The rain pours and pulls you in
Just as you are about to give in and drown in the everlasting pour,
A light beckons in the corner
Your arms battle the water
You escape the flood
Your walk becomes a run
Run run run
The sun rises
It's a new day

They would slay the dragons and win our hearts.
Climb every step needed
To get to the top.
To be able to see your hair dance and your face glow.

everything reminds me of you
but nothing compares

I Confess E-mail

I'm a mess, I confess that I'd be nothing without you.
It's my worst fear.
 
The nightmare that makes me shake.
I wake up in sweat and tears.
Look at reality and pray its not real.
I take a deep breath and feel in my chest the love that I was so scared to feel.
