for everywoman


do you see my face,
i am just like you,
with dreams that i
work for and wish
come true.
but when i get home,
the aspirations,
are replaced by terror
and perspiration.
sometimes it's a word,
or nothing that i say.
he turns for no reason
and this will not go away.
if i seem very distant
or inside my own head,
i have covered my bruises
but fear that soon i will
be dead.
i am one of many, lost
in this cycle of fear.
is there somebody out there
who cares or is willing
to hear.

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
