Stick Your Neck Out

One bead at a time

Necklaces are created

Someone will wear them

To add dazzle to a gown

Or simply dress up sweaters

Oven Lovin’

Butter blended with

Vanilla and some sugar

A delicious start

To a variety of

Cookies and cakes to enjoy

Got herself a pup

Brought him to his brand-new home

She’ll call him Brody

A handsome Cocker Spaniel

He’ll teach her all about love

mattress master

When sleep calls to you

Pillows won’t muffle the sound

Best you just give in

Change into your nighttime clothes

Wrap yourself in the blankets

emancipation declaration

If it’s memory

Holding precious hearts hostage

It’s about the past

Once we embrace moving on

We can set hostage hearts free
