A little this – a little that!

Today my twin sister and I are finally making time to write some poetry together! I’ll post some of it up here. Tell us what you think! Oh, and happy belated Easter! I hope you all had a great one.



In anticipation

A child’s recreation to count to ten

Ready or not, searching for friends who are


What’s desperately needed

Frenzied calls aren’t heeded by the missing keys

Please, I’ve got to be somewhere, why’d they have to be


Timid creature in it’s home

A somersault and a lock pick

Alarm is tripped soon the culprit’s

With its shapes and figures swallowed by fog, now


Behind a pane of glass

Ever clearer exterior, while self-worth is


From view were all the answers

Like a growing cancer, deceit pries on the fearful

Get an earful, but it’s all too late, the truth’s been
