Gone

Overcome by your...
shivering cold rancid breath
Death lies beside me

Pieces

A heart divided
Hurt knows no bounds anymore
Only time will tell

Remorse

As life fleets us by,
We can only reminisce:
About lost chances.

Best Mother in Law

she lived far away 
the phone to communicate
first question asked


always check weather
then how are you doing now
a happy response


want her back again
two weeks for pleasure visit
wished for us again

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

Alzheimer's Parody



her mask unchanging
rippling reality stints
despair’s fiery pits

sanity tilted
crust layered with razor blades
echo touched voices

opposites control
revolving kaleidoscope
serene destruction

sketchy shadow paths
Alzheimer’s parody stains
fog filled memories

An explosive mind
Death-filled actions without heart
The day the world found out


Dedicated to all of the victims

Tombstone - Like The Four Horsemen

they walked along
weathered, carrying their guns;
like the four horsemen…

down to the O.K.
guns blazing, bullets flying;
smoke clears, the strong stand…

What price ecstasy?

Pill at the club door
You dance tonight; never more
Another mourned life ~

Silent friendship


a dear friend
hiding now
behind glass

silently
not talking
loud and clear

mysteries
building walls
between hearts

it takes two
to speak out
the matter

awaiting
silent storms
passing by

endless faith
living on
in my soul

real insight
if sharing
dual gifts

loneliness
momentum
of today 

a true friend
never dies
in my heart

for better
or for worse
time will tell

Salt and Vinegar

He was somewhat enamored,
with salt and vinegar
he chipped away his health

Irish emigrate again

children emigrate

as Ireland’s cubs journey down

old ancestral paths
