small victory

hands to little.. but that's where it's supposed to go,
this one has tough skin, and veins that don't show.
i hope she doesn't feel too much pain,
as some of her blood i need to drain.
managed to get it on my first try,
 quite amazingly, she didn't cry.
wrapped her back up, returned her to mommy,
smile on my face... a small victory.

Something's gotta give

I've got the dreamer's disease, it has brought upon me some dis-ease.
Giving up so much for the chase, now some things have fallen out of place.
Would I have done it any differently? Honestly, quite unlikely.
I have taken much for granted, now I feel that I'm surrounded
by the many 'what-if's in my life, creating this internal strife.
Letting each day pass without much meaning, inside my heart is yearning,
for a sign.... and there it was.

Lies, I don't take well to.
Twice, I must be a saint.
Trice, I must be insane... Perhaps some lidocaine, or prilocaine, through the vein...

Snap out of it.....

pick me up, put me down,
whatever he's doing is making me frown.
what's that bright light in my eyes?
gonna shut them, you'd better not pry.
 coo coo coo, peek-a-boo, oh no i made a poo.
suddenly....whoa i'm falling!
better try to grab something...
 is it time for feeding yet?
i'm sucking but nothing's coming out.
who's this fella messing around?
i want my sleep so put me down.
