Troubles April 30, 2014

can we leave our troubles behind?

we’ll cleave them into minuscule pieces

then toss them, one at a time, into the breeze

allow the wind to waft them all away

like colorful confetti in a hometown parade

never to worry us again

never to be seen again

never again.

Life.

live, laugh, enjoy

love, trust, respect

lose, cry, sorrow

hurt, broken, lonely

grow, remember, live

Life.

I’m drowning in my own blood~

it pulses through my veins

boiling, bubbling, tumbling

from fingertip to toes.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood~

it covers me

it fills my greedy lungs and steals

my final breath.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood~

my eyes wide open

I watch until the very end

my last view is crimson.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood.

Make me promises

of better days to come

I need to believe

there is still hope.

Make me promises

even if they are lies

of love yet found

and smiles yet seen.

Make me promises

of a future worth living

speak of beauty

I’ve yet to see.

Make me promises

that forever you’ll stay

holding me close

whispering new promises.

 

 

Snow Limerick

There once was a snow storm in the south

It hit us like a punch in the mouth

We bought milk and bread

then hunkered down in bed

awaiting the thaw of the south.

Majestic

softly falling snow

colors the landscape with white

erasing all flaws.

Where Were You, When I died? February 1, 2014

Where were you, when I died?

Watching the game

with your hand deep in a bag of chips

licking the bits from your fingertips?

Where were you, when I died?

Driving to work

mind drifting and problem-solving

as you dart in between the cars?

Where were you, when I died?

You were right here

beside me, looking past with glazed eyes

as I crumbled.

You were right here

and you never even noticed.
