  • The Sisterhood
Taking no I - O - U's these thoughts too precious
I am laughing “Life is short” my new premise
I’m dancing heart passion so spontaneous [last syllable to be pronounced ‘iss’]
Not looking for wonderland I’m not Alice
I’m dancing without you with no-oh malice
You & me swingin’ from stars in Las Vegas
While singin’ to Elvis just outta Memphis
Heart on my sleeve you’re attached to my wris-t
Seeing us listening to Johnny Mathis
And one big one coming to you in Texas
I’m playing an inside straight right to the ace
Playing your song dang-double-dang that’s a hiss
And I’m movin’ from this to my own A-List
Baking your favorite pie that no crust bliss
Floating on a barge tugboats havin’ a tryst
My walks lonely, heart awakening, fast & brisk
I cry easy emerged from this chrysalis
Steppin’ outta loss & memory’s abyss
Oh your heart heats mine like a slow-burn furnace
:) Hang on I’m going behind a tree to piss :)
And like an artist I'll paint you, a Matisse
Wadin’ in the river I sing I got this
You were a prince after that one-time frog kiss
I’ll spin & grin & give my heart a new twist
I’m walking in the sunlight outta this mist
I’m walking in the sunlight out of this mist
Walking in the sunlight from our memory’s mist
And from my heart I’ll send you a daily kiss
And that way I will have tomorrow’s bliss
And that way I will find tomorrow’s bliss
Let’s have some fun ~ And get off this train of remorse ~ Of course that’s a horse ~ Now ~ Not a cow
Moo said the shoe to the fence post ~ I’ll climb you right up ~ And how
Conversation only goes so far ~ Especially when you’re a chicken with no tar ~ Now ~ On your feathers that is ~ Oh my is that a cow ?
There’s gotta be some energy up ~ How do ya like my new pup ~ Now
If life was any shorter ~ I’d get a new sandbox, lunch & pail – now
Well] I didn’t know this was over ~ [Well] I cried when you took the last cover – now
Don’t put off till tomorrow what can make you smile today ~ It is not a sure thing another day is on its way
Takin’ a leap with these dance-sing feet, so you can see life is short, watch me / The ‘feat’ is landing on my ‘feet’, see, you & me, one more time, hey-that’s- ?-a rhyme
Kissin’ frogs last chance to redeem / Life is too short is my retort
It aint too late to walk away from heaven’s gate [whisper] “for now" / Still got some livin’ to do those angels ridin’ ‘side me now too
I know I’m never gonna change your mind ~ In the end ~ There is no end ~ Only the choice ~ To mend or not to mend ~ & In the end I know… I’m never gonna change your mind
My vision is not your vision ~ My take not yours ~ Our time was hours & ours ~ My vision is not yours ~ It’s ours ~ Hours whiling away the time & the rhyme ~ It is time for us to reconcile ~ And while away ~ More of those hours ~ Ours … & it doesn’t matter ~ If I’m never gonna change your mind ~ It’s kinda fine ~ Doin’ this agin’ ~ It doesn’t matter if…
“Hey” ~ Eliminate what does not work ~ Make this moment great ~ It doesn’t matter if I’m never gonna change your mind ~ I’ve changed mine ~ (whisper) “>You’veyour< mind!
'Why'nd-ing up? ~ I know it sounds crazy ~ To think of moving on ~ 'Cause You can always change your mind see ~ 'Cause you're never going to change your mind 'bout always being able to change your mind ~ Time to unwind ~ Want this lemon rind ~ I mean rhyme ~ ?
(whisper: "I find") There’s always choices / But I can convince you / To change your-mind / I find the kind of-refrain / You-gain I-gain / Can both be-the-same / ‘Cause-in-the-end ~ We can both change our mind / (whisper: "I find...")
“I know you’re not gonna change your mind ~ We’ve been sealed, delivered and signed” <(last credit :) ~ Have fun! Folks... xx me)
“I know you’re not gonna change your mind ~ Wanna have a beer and unwind?” :)
“I know I’m not gonna change my mind ~ This love affair is too much grind”
"“I know I’m NEVER gonna change my mind ~ Forever’s never been so kind”" :)
Well, I know you'll never change your mind ~ Your heart's encased in a lemon rind
(got a few credits left) Lyric: "Well, I know I'll never change my mind ~ You shouldn'a said that about my behind"

:) Am retiring :) till come out of retirement :) but will enjoy poking around seeing what surfaces on here. It's been a blast from the get-go & my very first encounter with Hookist when 'Sisterhood' was the team-of-songwriters' heading up the write. Best to all of you!!! It has been a blast encountering you too! New journeys beckon! For now!!! 'Hugs 'n Luv", Frank
And we saw the end before it came ~ Like a Jewel-Fish Shining-Star ~ Lighting sky bringing us home
The days were numbered on our calendar and...
Too bad we loved before... but...
Mark the date standin' on an orange crate
Yet, our song ended before it began
There's no use in sighin' crying' or tryin'
Where's the rhyme in times gone by
Dippity-Doo Dippity-Doo Skinnying with You
Squirrels scratching plums 'n robins digging worms
Synapse glass taps no more traps only claps
Found our thrill in a strawberry patch ~ My goodness how they did scratch
Burnin' a tire shreddin' rubber
Elpaso wall rising blasts shaking ground
But damn ~ It's time ~ for 'nother ~ whirl
It aint bein' slack it's time ~ girl
Sat on your tack left it in ~ girl
Missing you sew stitch in time ~ girl
'Cept that last one where we missed ~ girl
Not on your life or mine or... girl
Blizzard bones in your backpack girl
Like your curl an oyster pearl girl
Blizzard stuck in a freeze frame girl
Whirling _ swirl twirls_in my heart_girl
You packed_and took_your moose rack_girl
Or the_ Way You_Quack In the_ Sack-Girl
Left your_ locket_on the bed_girl
Your knack_ To Be_My Train Track_Girl
Your knack_ To Be_My Big Mac_Girl <[LOL...Laughter not part of the lyric but heck, it could be after :) ]
You're tacked_ so tight_ to my heart _ girl
"That one you'd slowly unfurl ~ girl" [to follow Clay's video's chorus suggestion re: to follow 'One kiss I'd take back girl'
Thinking of you what do I do
I remember the other half / of that laugh and how it sounded
After that last night with-with you / That one sock I lost became two
Picture Perfect
You Bin PhotoShopped Grin
"Hi" Weren't So High"

The Way We Weren't [LOL]
Half and half again is all I / have left bereft I am still me
“There’s no going back from here. Flowing forward on a tear”
Stuck on you I found the glue didn’t stick to you
If we must end in con-‘verse ?’-ation ~ I’ll be ‘The Poet’ & rhyme one last time
I once was your side dish, then your full course meal ~ You loved me & left me with the same zeal
You once were a side dish, then a full course meal ~ I loved you & left you with the same zeal
Happy, Sad, Bitter, I cannot decide ~ My feelings I just cannot hide
THERE’S NO GOING BACK FROM HERE ~ GOING FORWARD ON A TEAR
Learning to love with you ~ Helps me now move on too ~
The day I met you I knew ~ We were thru a new door ~ Loving more until we were thru ~ And grateful for all we did do ~ Learning to be more ~ True in all we do ~ After our love ~ Once so true
HYPE IS THE ARTIST’S FALL FROM GRACE & I FELL FROM YOU & THIS RACE ~ SAVING FACE, GRACE, YOUR NAME-TRACE, IN MY MEMORY ~ SEE-BEE-FREE
Loving you made me more/opened many a new door
I'll love you till you're long in the tooth / Even in Superman's red phone booth / Oh you can't dance / You just got implants!
But then each kiss'd be bored bliss / And we'd be fallen into the abyss
But I'd surely miss a night or two / Boo-hoo Boo-hoo you're eating' my shoe
If true love truly exists / It doesn't matter if I go fish / Perch, pickerel, bass or chub / We've got lottsa room in the tub
If I was a cuddly bear and you a bare bear we'd surely go on another tear
Now it's mourning oops morning / Let's see what the stork did bring in its carry-on thing
If cats climbed more trees and bees buzzed more hives I couldn't feel more alive
This would be more fun ~ If a kiss wasn't so much bliss ~ And just a beginning to more of this ~ What's that?
You're hunred & three & I'm ninety-three / You're someone so rare Who Doesn't Care
Never again to miss you bathed always in this bliss
One last time agin' and agin' ~ Thanks for lettin' me in
Bridgin' ridges with my feelins'/ Wondering what kinda cards you're dealin'
What's that book you readin' grinnin'? / After divorce then what?!?!?!
This began with a kiss like this ~ DANG how did I miss
Kissin' cousins got nothin' on us ~ Listen to 'em cuss-cuss
Once read a book about this ~ Did we end 'thout a kiss
It's hot gave you all I got / Now I'm getting' off this cot
Some kind o' love song this could be / But it's real not for eternity
OOPS one more river to cross / Is that your boyfriend Ross
There's one more river to cross / And a bridge back to you
Life without hurt is no gain / Let it rain let it rain
It's the day after the day now ~ What'll we do what'll we do ow!
If glue sticks us together / Yuck-ee let's just not part
Did the math one plus one is two / Hey that is me and you
I know this moment must end / So let's to our hearts tend
There is no best way to say / You've shown me a new way
You're my uni-corn my hair's-shorn / This has been organic so-so shamanic
Coffee Tea-or Me-Hey Hey / You-can have-all three!-I-say
Mmmm world's not moving' so fast / Want some breakfast?
Reminiscing & Missing Yesterday / Hearts alone & showing the way
I believe in miracles 'N / Two wheeled bicycles
The poet in me wants to be with you / The man in me just is
Precious jewels sparkle and shine / We glow within just fine
Is that my sock or your foot's-talk / Wiggle a toe just to show
Now we're outta bed breaking bread / Think I lost my best sock
No way we can always be this / Kiss after kiss we'll miss
This bridge 'tween you and me / Is there now for all, see
Our bus aint leavin' today, hey / When it does come with me
There aint no formula / We're math benign, just us
IF THIS COULD LAST FOREVER I'D / ROUGH EVRY SEA TO BE TOGETHER
Your eyes shine / Back to mine
Beside you / Now so true
Breathing you / Into me [rhymes = 'brea'th-'ee-i'ng 'me' and 'you' in'to'
Be-cause you / Love so true
Time dances free / When we're we
'Cause you're my/Heart filled sigh
Your heart, head/And body...
No more waitin' you're my...
Shakin' & bakin' (with)
All night 'n all day... 'with'
You're everything a man dreams of ~ You're country lovin' from above
I believe you when you say to me / There is no other way for us to be
Someone so rare ~ A look from you ~ And I know I ~ Love you too ~
Someone so rare ~ Your hair so fair ~ My heart is there ~ For-you to wear
Someone so rare ~ Dances through my mind ~ You're the biggest jewel ~ I'll ever find
Someone so rare ~ Do I dare ~ Pay the fare ~ 'For' Someone so rare
There-is no end ~ Only 'nother begin
[[To Bah-Dah-Dum Bah-dah-dum pattern requested for pre-chorus leading into chorus requested starting with 'Someone so rare'. Hyphen denotes on one beat i.e. on a bah or a dah or a dum ]] Pre-Chorus submission: You're-Always On-My Mind / Where Did-I Find [into 'Someone so rare' starting line as discussed in video]
Blossoms rise in the sun arcing like heaven’s lamps on our road/You’re my one-and-only your heart’s glisten has risen & showed
Blossoms rise in the sun like heaven's lamps on our love-road/You're my one-and-only your heart's glisten has risen & showed
And knowing this she is free / to be her no matter... see
And now her song/We're gonna sing/Bringing to light/Her everything
The ways of the days ahead seem clear/Nothing to fear but an unloved tear
And it will this I-do-know "Hey", It all will-be-all-right this I say
Title: TAKING TO THE HIGHWAY
But her oh so softly sung song / Doesn't make what she did less wrong / Forgiving aint easy but it sets me free ~ Her too can't she just see ~
The layers in the song, your song ~ Are all wrong, that's why I am moving along
Why does forgiveness assume acceptance ~ It is not happenstance I no longer listen to your song ~ or want to watch you dance ~ Song and dance that it is ~ No longer makin' it my biz ~
But there is something wrong with forgiveness if it leaves me tied to you / So I think I'll say shoo to you and stop tying the same old shoe
A SONG ABOUT FORGIVENESS A song about forgiveness lets me hear your voice ~ I forgive you ~ Setting me free ~ It's time to rejoice ~ It doesn't mean I will be with you ~ It means I hear your song ~ & dance & know I took that chance ~ And know what you did was wrong ~ You cheated on me ~ Now I see ~ It had nothing to do with me ~ [from FRANK! the poet ? June 2, 2018]
Walking through fear I hold you dear / I wipe 'your' eye and dry 'my' tear
This soft song we begin to sing really can bring / Us together again, pain all forgiven, dragons slain
But I hear it loud in my heart / There's no room for a brand new start
[Bridge] When life dances you a new tune ~ You sail the moon's swoon ~ 'N get, beget, new love soon ~ Your ship has sailed ~ I have wailed ~ I forgive you more ~ Day-by-Day-I-Say ~ But this day is mine ~ Singing free now again ~ Is my refrain ~ [Repeat chorus line: "" We all get hurt, while we’re learnin’ to live / We all have to cry while we learn to forgive ""] ***
But she's sung that song before ~ I've already opened a new door
It's a song I've heard before, without refrain or gain / I need a new chorus, a new line, mine, to be fine, read the sign
Now it's time for my new life to begin / A tear wets my cheek, rolls offa my chin
You set me free you gotta believe / I don't feel you tugging at my heart's sleeve
I'm walking free with no more sorrow / Today is yesterday's bright tomorrow
What you did cannot ever be okay / My own light shines for me today
I am giving up on a love like this ~ Your droopy-eyed bliss I want to miss
If forgiveness was gift I'd open it today I don't know how to say I'm walkin' away
Forgiving you is not saying what you did was okay It is saying I'm going to play without you from today There is no answer, no easy way, to walk without you from today, but I'm a-going to, no more do I love you
The how of how to forgive is to live and let live & to you this also you must give
Days without end let my heart's break mend, you see, I say I forgive you, but it's me I set free
I may not be yours 'n you may not be mine, but this forgiveness is working' jus' fine
Havin' a fine fun weekend aint your kinda day ~ But hey-hey I'll do forgiveness only my way
Tomorrow is yesterday's today, when forgiveness is todays showing the way
Singing the song of freedom on lost highways' dreams of yesterday being better than today
Forgiving is for-living, free of the pain, the hold back, you caused, I let you cause, now we know we both have flaws [ LOL ]
The day before the day after is the time to reconcile-forgive-and-live, not-after-the-day-after, I wanna live-to-forgive, &-be-forgiven, that's-what-some-call livin'....
The light cries under skies crying too when we live to forgive but not ourselves retake
The road to redemption is not forgiving others, it's the pathway home to your self
Forgivin' aint easy, It's part of livin', I aint believin' Until all is forgivin'
Wandered afar, blamed the road, I was on remote, one click away, I wanted to play... "with you"
FORGIVE & LIVE THE SAGE SAYS TO ME, BUT WHAT IF IT'S ME I HAVE TO FORGIVE TO LIVE
Living for today, I find my way, to tomorrow's forgiveness... nothing less I say
When the beginning is over and the end is near there is nothing to fear
When poets rise to the occasion, there is nothing to forgive, only moments to live
There is no way to begin anew unless you forgive what has been done to you
Forgiveness is the answer in the silence of my heart, when all I want is a brand new start
There aint no shortcuts no bridges to cross, I've burnt them behind me so I know where I'm lost
Forgiveness is easy, when I ride into the sun/ and evrything's undone, when I ride into that sun
Rocking away the hours, wandering roads under my wheels, anything goes and I've stopped making deals
Memries fly past please stay, You call to me my heart / free I'm sailin', till somewhere stops calling me [*Memries making memories 2 syllables]
Life goes on that's all I ever seek, to-live to-be as-me strong-or meek that's gon-na be my lucky streak [note:hyphenated to be one beat]
BRIDGE: "The Last Line in this song ~ Can't be wrong ~ We dance in the Light ~ Now ~ Our Haiti Light ~ Oh what a sight ~ We are ~ We will go far ~ Following our star ~ Rise up ~ Rise up ~ Rise up"
Our sight unrelinquished ~ We feel our might ~ Seeing our light ~ Again ~ The pain-refrain ~ Not ours ~ Ever again
Riding the wind of time/ Bringing back life's rhyme
( Sorry for the upper case text in my most recent sub. Here it is again in lower case, with revisions, as well. Best 2U ~ Frank ) Sing on the wings of a dove ~ Bringing light ‘n love ~ Ringing our hearts in destiny-sing ~ You and me and our light it brings
SING ON THE WING OF A DOVE ~ BRINGING-ING LIGHT-N-LOVE ~ RING-ING-IN THE-HEART-OF-DEST-INY-SING ~ YOU & ME & OUR ~ LIGHT
Play awhile in the sun now / Again and again we release our pain
Oh what a sight now / And how we reign rain
Wandering suns free / to me to you ~ us
Sun drenched earth begins / sins wandering free
Ashes wain from our pain / Broken no more we gain / Arise arise arise / Vain sighs no more... we rise
The beginning of ends/ star-hearts our so-oul's pleas / Singing sea-sounds break waves/ healing new grounds we take
Rising we are bright lights / Healing our ravaged hearts/ Our crushed lives we reclaim / Never again the same ~ [Whisper or be creative in wee break: Phoenix Rising/ Phoenix Rising/ Sing/ Phoenix Rising ]
And yes the tick of time / brings us all home again / unbroken arrows grace sand / as we walk hand in hand
Rising we are bright lights / Healing our ravaged hearts/ Our crushed lives we reclaim / Never again the same ~ [Whisper or be creative in wee break: Phoenix Rising/ Phoenix Rising/ Sing/ Phoenix Rising ]
And yes the tick of time / brings us all home again / unbroken arrows grace sand / as we walk hand in hand
SING ON THE WING OF A DOVE ~ BRINGING-ING LIGHT-N-LOVE ~ RING-ING-IN THE-HEART-OF-DEST-INY-SING ~ YOU & ME & HAITI ~ LIGHT
