The Tale of The Beautiful Swan and The Ugly Frog

September 22, 2010
The Ugly Frog was hopping one night
Just enjoying his time on his lilly pad
That’s when he saw her
The Beautiful Swan basking in the moonlight
He knew he was ugly, but he had to try
So the Ugly Frog hopped on over beside her
“You are so beautiful, oh Beautiful Swan.
Perhaps you’d like to spend some time with me catching flies?”
With that a bond was formed
And they were side by side at all hours
He made her laugh, she made him smile
But in his Ugly Froggy heart he knew it was doomed
Sure enough, he worked up the courage to speak
He laid it all out on the line you see
He said he loved her, and he always did
And that she made his Ugly Froggy knees weak.
“I feel so ugly next to you.” The Ugly Frog said.
“I’m sorry I had to get that off my Ugly Froggy chest.”
The Beautiful Swan cried, and words began to form
“I could never be with you.” is what she said.
“For I am a Beautiful Swan, and you are an Ugly Frog.
You make me laugh and feel warm inside
But I don’t love you, and I never did.
Please don’t feel bad Ugly Frog..”
The Ugly Frog fought back the tears
He couldn’t let her see how weak he was.
“I do not blame you, oh Beautiful Swan
For why would a Beautiful Swan want to be with an Ugly Frog?”
With that he hopped away, never to be seen again.
The Beautiful Swan now lonely and sad
No one knows what happened to the Ugly Frog
Perhaps he grew tired of wrestling with his heart.

When The Sounds of Crying Were Drowned Out By The Roars of Lions

September 13, 2010

My God, send your angel, shut these mouths of lions around me.

And then I waited.  But no one came.

Just me with the lions.

I am ugly prey.

Look at me the ugly prey.


My God, where is your angel?  I cannot shut these mouths of lions alone.

For I have tried.  And I was mauled

For my actions.

Oh angel please come

Save me from my own lions.


My God, has your angel arrived?  For I fear I cannot

shut these mouths of lions around me.

Perhaps I should tell these lions to open wide.

So that I may crawl inside.

I will allow these lions to consume me.

Oh angel, do not let me be consumed…

When Hope Has Out Stayed Its Welcome

September 9, 2010

Oh my Dear Darkness, how have you been?

It’s been too long I know

But you told me I’d come running back

And you’d evelop me in open arms


So Dear Darkness, does the offer still stand?

You can tell me that you told me so

I let The Light invade my hallways

And I allowed The Hope to choke out my sanity


Oh my Dear Darkness, it’s just you and me now

Just as you told me the outcome would be

Oh don’t you worry, my Dear Darkness

For I know now to never let the light in


Oh Dear Darkness, it’s so cold now

At least I have you to blanket me

Just you and me now, Oh Dear Darkness

And I will never ever leave you.
