    If only for food and survival, I break these stones here, now, It is in shame, that I am working, For much more does it allow. I slave here in Virginia, The one I love, in Cavan. Not only for my stomach, But also for sanity’s clan. These stones will form a church, That is of the Catho...

    Happy Birthday, dear child. You didn’t live long. I held you in my arms And then you were gone. Conceived in perfection An angel you were. For my hearts sadness, Your kiss was the cure. In that brief moment, I witnessed perfection! You, my baby love, Were an instant addiction. B...

    I saw you through the glass; It was muddy with sea slime. I saw your shape, your shadow, And wanted you for mine. Your edges, were so smooth and black, Your silhouette so perfect. My mind, it learned to trace your shape, I was an instant addict. It took a lick, a cough, a sputter, To ...

    Try and try and try again, to find the piece that fits. For hours and hours and hours on end, Your heart wont let you quit. After time you get fed up, And grab a random piece, You push the edges in that spot, And when it fits you cease. But still the picture doesn’t match, The edges...

    Come here, let me shoot you. Let me shoot you with a potion. A potion that will Wash away this Film. This Film blinding the Truth. The Truth, my love, which only few can see. War is raging around us. A Spiritual War, with Angels and Demons. A fight, slaying the Wrong for what is Right. This...

    Storms a howling On the coast Dark as hell, Yet ebbing . On the fence Sits Mistle Thrush A speckled breast And gray. Lesser buff Than sister Song, But none the less A fighter. Sings for wind And sings for rain, Sings for snow And thunder. Mistle Thrush Will strong perfor...

    Lavender in our pillows And castles in the sky Candles in the windows While Mommy hummed nearby. Visions of my childhood Now dance before my face The test of time withstood, So that nothing can abase. Oh how I miss those summer days, Of lying in the green, Of Irelands natural display...

    As I grew up in Carlow, Oh, so many things made me The person that dear mother needed me to be. The year was 1920 And I was a little child, My mommy said my brother Hung, because he was so wild. “He always was a strong one,” she said to me, with tears. “Is freedom really worth it...

    Welcome, welcome, ever welcome, To Armagh, the ‘country of bandits’. Where ma is Catholic, and da is not, And neither have their wits… Eighteen hour-- days of 55, Make for long time contemplation-- Of days of old and times long past And war brewing in Dublin. I like to go to Camlai...

    I’ve seen all there is to see Of County Antrim’s history. From La Girona off Lacada To the Troubles at Ballymoney. Some twenty-four ships sank, Spanish blood were of the crew, Cry in terror, though they might, With the waves, could not, they argue But forgotten it was not No, rememb...

    I feel so drained. Every moment of this life is bogged down with expectations, Choices, useless knowledge, endless rambling. STOP! Be quiet, wont you? You’re sucking the life from my bones With your waste-of-time-classes. I stare out the window and Cringe as time passes. I’d learn more wi...

    Ones spirit’s often heavy, With a body. My soul! it did not choose This humble cage. It’s parts were thrown at random into one. A nose from ma, an ear from da But nothing of my own. I had no means to voice What hair I wanted. Or weather sweet or Not, my smile should be. My spir...

    To Laugh A moment where I can escape the trials of this world. Where I can numb my mind. My body’s favored defense mechanism. A way of loosing all thoughts. A way to forget the pain. Yet, a way to remember. When in doubt, laugh. To cry A moment where I can escape the trials of this wor...

    Sitting on the fence with you, Is not a walk in the park. It's not going to see a movie, It's not kissing in the dark. Sitting on the fence with you, Is like insulting me to my face. Telling me I'm not good enough, Then putting me in 'my place'. Instead of sitting on the fence, How abou...
