The Day I Said Goodbye

It is "bama pi" not goodbye.

The day I said goodbye My life crashed I felt worthless I felt trashed. The day I said goodbye I prayed for the truth You kept your mask You hid from me the sooth. The day I said goodbye I lost my faith I no longer knew you It was like you're a wraith. Th...

Blind faith once left me feeling in a dark place, A place I have known too well. A shattered, empty vessel that had been left, In the place where once joy lived. Every time I heard your voice Or saw your smiling face, The lump in my throat told me the tru...

Silence

A winter dream…

6:30 winter morn, Snow keeps falling. Eva dreams in worlds far away, Sweet little worlds made for silence. Not talk, not heartache, Young heart for love. Every thawing heart plays a theme Into eyes while they’re still blind. She took a step, Outside an in...

I I was enamored by a dream that illuminated my mind and body, my heart and soul filled with peaceful joy; for I remember wanting to remain in my slumber of delight, envisioning the Star of the Sea and Glowing Furnace of Charity. And in my dream the fair...

It's Only Just A Dream

Poetry fulfills our dreams

It's only just a dream, but may we share? Imagine all the peace that we might find When finally we free ourselves from life. Forgo the dance of destiny for now, Releasing all our cares from heart and soul. One never really understands the truth That opens...

Long Game

I am returning to my animal nature.

My neighbors, I imagine, know me as that guy who stands in the middle of the street for no apparent reason. Is he okay? they probably wonder. Perhaps someone should call 911 Okay. It’s a little embarrassing, but I’ll take the hit Trees block our windows;...

Future Perfect

Motherhood changes your perspective forever.

Anxious minutes pass as I awaited the results of the tests. My mind flirting with all the possibilities. Am I or am I not? My heart starting beating again when the doctor confirmed what I already knew. I was pregnant. Again. Not the first time I had heard...

If I Should Win The Lottery

Money can’t buy you happiness

If I should win the lottery, it would be a dream come true. Imagine all those millions, I know exactly what I’ll do? Posing with a giant cheque, you’d see me on the news. I’d hold a champagne reception, before going on a cruise. I’d buy a house that’s big...

I am running Running as fast as I can Heart pounding, lungs burning Scurrying through the undergrowth Frantically dodging and stepping I am frightened Oh, so frightened For they are close now So close Seeking me out But then Then there is a second A breat...

I think I get caught up in others To avoid my own reflection. When self-doubt and depression smothers I’m called for decompression. I think I get caught up while they swim in despair While tears fall steady and slow And not all moments should be shared Wh...

Breathe in peace, that’s what they say, to reduce anxiety, better yet, take a holiday. Imagine a white sandy beach, oh, I've done that before. Closing my eyes, all I see is a door. Daring myself to open it, greeted by Munch’s Scream. Why is stress like a...

Fingernails diving deep, into the flannel green. Picking up the puzzle piece, the one we’ve never seen. Feeling the rough edges, cardboard corrugated. The colors and shapes match, much anticipated. Adjoining touch, press. Angles instantly click. The image...

Spirit Of Someone

Another diary entry…

Yet another scribbled entry in this diary of lies, Paralysed, in this pseudo world of one. Whispers, whispers of near-naked misunderstandings, Sometimes hard to breathe through invisible tears. Safe, warm worlds under cold silken sheets equals, Dream. Cur...
