LC, the Lonesome Cowgirl

LC, the lonesome cowgirl
She’s kinda deranged
LC, the lonesome cowgirl
She’s really pretty… strange

LC’s got herself a gig
For Independence Day
She’ll have you squealing like a pig
If you let her get her way

LC needs to write more words
And practise her geetar
Just three more lines (mostly absurd)
Is all she needs thus far

She’ll make you laugh, she’ll make you cry
She’ll have you shake with fear
But still you’ll love her all the while
She’s weird, but most sincere

She’ll sing her tale of tragedy
Regale you with her truth
Her dark and honest travesty
Is sure to raise the roof

LC, the lonesome cowgirl
Lost her horse or found a rope
She’s coming to a place near you
But is she ready? Nope!

What I Did For Me

I’m trying to see how my lyrics work as standalone poetry, but I can’t help but sing them, so I’ll leave it for you to decide.

This is something I wrote from a ‘dirge’ I was sent from my friend, Paul, with the recorded sing at the end.

~~~~~~

You took my heart and threw it down the stairs
Right after me
You took my soul and left without a care
I could not see what you did to me

You took my eyes and blinded me with lust
Now I can see
You took my lips and filled them with mistrust
I could not speak, and you left me weak

You can take my heart and you can throw it away
But I’m still growing stronger every day
And I don’t need you to stand by me
You’re so much weaker than I thought you’d be
You’re just a bully and I was your prey
But now I’m growing stronger every day
You can take your pain and your life’s disarray
‘Cos I’m not a toy for you to play with
You can’t make me blow like a chain reactor
Now I’ve found the way to my true character
F*ck you boy, I’m happier on my own
Now my life ain’t like a f*ckin’ combat zone

I took my mind and sought something profound
Something for me
I took my soul, I turned my life around
Now all can see, what I did for me

NaPoWriMo: Day Nine

Day 9. Not inspired by randomly generated words. A friend uploaded a song called Nobody Loves You, so I’ve used the title for inspiration for my tanka instead.

1024x1024

Nobody loves you
Your appeal is wearing thin
Shrug off your shackles
Till you’re free to seek within
Be the change you need to be

The Song can be heard here: Nobody Loves You – Andrew Russe
