Soon As You Say Yes

Fallen Angels

I think you should wear your hair down
Like I asked you
Braids are pretty but you can braid your hair back up
When I’m done
Hours upon hours of words
I want everything
That you heard
Whether we’re just souls
Or mates
We don’t need a bed
To relate
There’s a shower
With running water
I just wanna relate
Take over my body
So you can get the same feeling
Take over your body
So you’re willing
To ease my pain
Pleasure and hurt
Spin on the same cycle
I be listening to songs
Thinking of you
Thinking of this

So I can look back later
And reminisce
If I’m looking back
Then I know
We already did all of this
You get it?
I’m planning nights with you

Back Into The Woods She Went, by Donna Matthews

Go Dog Go Café

Featured Image - Woods Watercolor Painting and Photoshop editing by Donna Matthews

little red riding hood
knew all the stories
had even met the big bad wolf
but afraid she refused to live
back into the woods she went
she saw her grandma
she heard the birds

she laid in the winter sun
home again
her day well spent

A Best Friend is Better Than a Diamond

Written in Blue Mercury

If I found a really big beautifully cut diamond,
I would break it in 2 and give you half.
Of course, it would then be worthless,
but we could share this worthlessness together as best friends.
True friends because our friendship was so powerful
that we felt compelled to destroy an incredibly valuable diamond
breaking it in half rendering it worthless to prove our friendship.
When we could have just sold the thing and had a ton of money
and then been incredibly good friends with a ton of money.
Seriously, I don’t know why we’re friends.
You’re always talking me into these crazy things.
Do I even know you?
I love you.
Give me a hug.
You are my best friend.
Get off me you weirdo!
No! You can’t borrow my toothbrush.
