Posted: 23 Jul 2017 00:18

I want to eat at your house. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/eat.gif" alt="eat">

Freshly caught (by my better half and son) wheat fish (Sea trout) grilled with garlic butter and dill and lemons. (It was a successful day of fishing.)
Olve oil and rosemary seasoned thinly sliced roasted yellow potatoes
Fresh grown tomatoes from our garden, sliced and broiled with salt, pepper, Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese.
Baguette made from scratch by son

Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries with whipped cream for dessert.

My bed is lonely
Insomnia is a bitch
But things could be worse

My mate waits for me
Ready to welcome me back
When sleep comes for me

Something I wrote when I couldn't sleep, of course. It was awhile ago but insomnia still plagues me. At least some nights I am productive.

I am rather annoyed at all of my family at the moment. They can fend for themselves for dinner.

Of course, it's just too bad we can't have it down at Ocracoke. But I am sure we could manage something resembling intelligible here.

Uh, huh. And that book would be? ;)

I'm sorry I hadn't seen this before now. The book I was rereading was Shirley Jackson's The Haunting Hill House.

Gillian and the Three Mole Stories

Mole Story One I can't recall when I first realized I had a mole under my arm. It was located in the center of my armpit. Early grade school is my best guess. For the most part, I was blissfully unaware of its presence. Doctors had assured my Mother that it was harmless and there was no need to remove it. It was in third grade that my awareness of it became more pronounced. In those...

Chemistry is a thief More than once it has tried to addle my brain Now it threatens my sight Chemistry is a friend Trying to help in the war The fight to regain my steps Not sure for how long or how brief Chemistry is a curse Will I recover and still See colors, hues, and light For now, I feel only grief Chemistry to battle is my plan A familiar fight but now involving my sight Time...

We Always Go On

You used to worship and love all parts of me, do you still? Easy to do when things were tight firm and new Staring in my mirror, I see So many scars, flaws, surely you do too? Approaching from behind a kiss placed at the base of my neck Shh, stop, now's not the time I feel your lips travel and taste their way down to a scar on my arm Lingering, I try to pull away from you Hands turn me...

Scars to Tattoos

I no longer need to make marks on me A professional who tattoos has set me free When certain thoughts return and intrude back into my life for reasons unknown I try to quiet them appease, silence the poison but I am unable to stop or cope I wear a myriad of scars Self-inflicted not that long ago Shocking and saddening myself family and friends at a time when I was so very low The...

Memories Fade

Was there a time you were not here with me Looking back I can not see All there was is now Time our only enemy The clock counts down Days rush by Each moment felt A touch, a whisper Are more special now Years pass quickly Faster as we both age Can we please slow down Memories will fade Even now some slip Quietly away each day Fix your gentle Touch upon my body Face and all over my soul...

Take My Hand Again

You should be able to see When I am struggling to be Cold winds howl and shake It's harder now for me to wake This year you've turned blind Leaving me to flounder in my mind Years gone past you've held my hand Don't leave me alone in this wasteland Back and forth, up an down, good and bad I can't have taken all that you had Reach for me before I fall into the abyss I'll try and catch...

We Remember

When I am ashes upon the shelf Will you remember me When you feel your skin tingle Will you remember me When you sense a breath in your ear Will you remember me When you see my toothbrush by the sink Will you remember me When you see my pictures Will you remember me I saw your name written in a book And I remembered I inhaled the scent from your clothes And I remembered ...

Welcome Back

Fall's returned to give me it's lift My sanity, energy and outlook Returned, I am up early, life is a gift Smiles, I work, exercise, even cook Summer's heat zapped my soul Slowly I eroded and lost control Functioning became my only role I felt that slip, I fell into my hole Leaves rustle gently down as they rain Their sounds soothe, to still me My mind is settled, I feel no pain...

Noises In My Head

Sounds in my mind Real or just pathology My family tries to be kind Patience wears thin in summer heat Bed is my refuge where I find peace No need to talk, interact or eat Sleep I slip into and refuse to wake Episodes that repeat, I'm sick of now I'll rise and pretend, for my family's sake A tunnel with no end, just curves and cracks Worth fighting for, my life, this time not sure how...

Three Days of Hell/Help

Please stop crying, you're scaring us now. I really am trying but some days I feel like dying. Please stop laughing that's even more frightening to us. Great, now I can can add guilt to my messy mind, what a plus. Cry, laugh, stop, start make sure you repeat. I don't want to leave, just need a place to safely retreat. No, it's not stopping and I give in. We return to the place I've been...
