What a wonderful work of written art! Have you heard of writing.com? I would leave a link but it is not permitted in the team forums. If you find your way over there, my name is purpleiris.

I wrote about 50 songs between my lyrics and my husband wrote the music part. I lost them in Nashville, when on holidays. Many of the songs are sung by various famous singers. I left the music at a recording studio down there. I moved a lot after my husband died in a car accident. If someone from the recording studio, had tried to reach me, it would have been impossible to locate me. I am so proud our songs, hit the # 1 music charts back in the 90's. Money would have been nice but even nicer, is to hear our songs being sung and that they helped these beginning artist/singers on there road to fame.

I wrote this on a dare. I told a friend I couldn't truly call myself an Irish poet until I wrote a pub song. He dared me to write it and sing it for him for St. Patrick's Day -- which I did! I hope you enjoy it. It may be history's first feminist pub song.

The Drunkard's Wife (Melody: Drunken Nights)

My man came home on Monday night, as drunk as he could be,
And as he came in through the door this he said to me:
I've gone and torn my favorite shirt; I've ripped the sleeve right through.
Be a dear and get your needle, love, and fix it up like new.
You left me here alone, I said, while you were on your spree;
Get your mending from your bottle, then, for you'll have none from me.

My man came home on Tuesday night, as drunk as he could be,
And as he came in through the door this he said to me:
I'm near to death from hunger, love, it's now the end of day.
So please fetch me my supper, dear, before I faint away
You left me here alone, I said, while you were on your spree;
Get your supper from your bottle, then, for you'll have none from me.

My man came home on Wednesday night, as drunk as he could be,
And as he came in through the door this he said to me:
I've quite run out of money, love, to buy the lads a round.
So please go fetch your purse for me and let me have a pound.
You left me here alone, I said, while you were on your spree;
Get your money from your bottle, then, for you'll have none from me.

My man came home on Thursday night, as drunk as he could be,
And as he came in through the door this he said to me:
I'm in the mood for love tonight, so come to bed, dear wife
And give the love that you have vowed you'd give me all your life.
You left me here alone, I said, "while you were on your spree;
Get your loving from your bottle, then, for you'll have none from me.

My man came home on Friday night, as drunk as he could be,
At least I think that's what he did; I was not there to see.
For I've run off to Donegal as fast as I could run
And at my side is my true love, our neighbor Rory Dunn.
When he left me alone each night to have his drunken spree,
I'll bet he never thought I'd find a better man than he.

Thought I'd post some of my own writing in here. I write a lot of poetry or rather used to but I don't have much time for it lately...

Here goes nothing:

Looking to be found

She rolled the dice in search of fortune
Abused her vice in search of fame
She stole their eyes in search of beauty
And cracked her whip the wild to tame

Her fingers bled to find a tune
Her heart grew cold in search of love
She lost herself seeking approval
And sought the answers from above

Her eyes turned grey pursuing truth
Her limbs grew tired chasing inspiration
In search of wisdom she lost youth
She gave herself to find creation

She spent her life in search of the profound
But mostly, she was looking to be found


"I'm not fat! I'm just big-boned!" ;-)

SILENT DREAM

I wake up in my silent dream
and think that I am just a beam
I see my shadow on the wall
please hold me tight so I won't fall
My shadow moves inside my dream
I hold my breath so I won't scream
The beating of my heart is loud
I seem to be outside a crowd
I raise my hand and touch your cheek
and then I'm in another week

A MOMENT IN TIME
What is time? is it just a moment when time slips past,
or just my thoughts thinking of future time,
is time nothing at all, only in my mind,
it could even be you and me, or just only me,
is time just the loneliness that I feel,
is it my ceaseless tears
or is it me in a room full of faces
with just my thoughts of time past,
present and sadness
is it when you can't let go of the past,
because it is the present
perhaps it's the tears in your eyes
so you can't see the future
or is it despair that I feel in my sadness,
I ask myself what is despair?
is it the empty feeling inside me of no existence,
I'm just a moment of time slipping past me out of reach,
even if you could reach out and take this moment,
your despair won't let you
your sadness holds you back
and your loneliness keeps you lonely
so time just fades into my tears
and all I am is silent fears,
just a moment in time

THE ONLY ONE
Am I the child that I can see
Or am I all things that is me
Am I the sky without the stars
Or am I the lid without the jars
Am I the thorn without the rose
Or am I just the worn out clothes
Am I the dark without the light
Or am I the fear of Friday night
Am I the wet upon my bed
Or am I the torment in my head
Am I the stones around the gate
Or am I the love without the hate
Am I the sweet without the heart
Or am I the ache when we must part
Am I the kiss without the touch
Or am I the love that is so much
Am I the fear that all has gone
Because I am just the only one.

PASSING BY

My thoughts are calling to my mind
Soon you will leave all this behind
My sadness struggles in my despair
Telling me that I'm not there
I hide in the centre of my sorrow
And very soon it will be tomorrow
The days are swiftly passing by
As I sit here alone and cry
I think of things that might have been
But now I'm just inside my dream

THE TIDE

I often think that you're a stream
Flowing on the edge of the sea
I can feel your gentle ripples
running along inside of me
I hear you say come here my love
And we will sing our song
But just as I reach out my hand
The tide comes in and you are gone

LOVE IS emoticon

Love is a feeling deep inside
Love is something you should not hide
Love is one where there is two
Love is knowing just what to do
Love is deep inside my soul
Love is a story yet to be told
Love is a heartbeat that I can hear
Love is the touch of you so near
Love is the dream that's in my sleep
Love is the tears when I must weep
Love is you and love is me
Love is one day just wait and see.

TEAR DROP emoticon

Sometimes I feel like I'm a sponge
floating in the sea
Then someone comes along
and takes a squeeze at me
Every time they touch me
some pieces fall away
I think one day very soon
you all will hear me say
No more floating in the sea
as there is nothing left of me
I'm just a tear drop on the shore
You can not touch me any more

LOST
Am I lost and don't know where
or am I just a silent care
Am I just a broken heart
or am I here so far apart
Am I sad and want to cry
or am I just time passing by
Am I loving thoughts of you
or am I dreams that will come true
Am I just so full of tears
or am I all my silent fears

DARKNESS
The darkness in my mind
Reaches in touching my soul
Salty tears swallowed whole
Moments when I can't see me
always wanting to be free
Desolation reaching out
Silent screams there is no doubt
Confusion all around me calling
Silent tears always falling

BLACKNESS

Descending into my dreams
My pounding heart screams
Thoughts of loneliness fear and sorrow
Fills my heart with no tomorrow
Blackness so dark I cannot see
Thinking soon I will be free
Memories always the same
Hearing you call out my name

emoticon THE SANDS OF TIME emoticon

Am I a whisper in the breeze
or am I a nest up in the trees
Am I a bird without it's wings
or am I a Nightingale when she sings
Am I the moon without the beam
or am I just a silent scream
Am I the storm without the rain
or am I the bed where I have lain
Am I the night without the fear
or am I the things that I hold dear
Am I the rainbow with all it's colours
or am I a cross for all the others
I wish that they would let me be
as I will never let them see
That I am just the sands of time
Running out in every line

TEARS
Can you hear me crying
Inside these four stone walls
Could you catch my teardrops
Just before they fall
Would you place your hand
Gently on my cheek
And say to me I love you
There is no need to weep

Yes Polly I write all my own thank you
==================

SECRET PLACE

There is a corner in my mind
I call my secret place
In it I place all the things
That I just cannot face
When I lay awake at night
And sleep won't come for me
I wonder will you be the one
That wants to set me free
I'll empty out my secret place
And fill it full of love
Then all the things I can erase
That I have stored above

Tattered Covers emoticon

Sometimes I feel like I'm a book
With torn and tattered covers
Someone takes me out to read
And then I'm passed to others
They never seem to turn the pages
So they will never see
All the heartache that I feel
Inside the real me
So next time that you take me out
Don't give me to another
Make sure that you read inside
Don't judge me by the cover
