No Sugar

Sickness sucks the sugar off
Tongues tied to thoughts of tomorrow
If the ingredients don't add up
I search for a cup to borrow
Lost souls left in a breezless meadow
Waiting for a seed to sprout
Can't you hear my shout
Languished and left in peace
Gripping ghosts of past deceased
Sticking the sick with crosses denied 
Why do I      anymore       try

It's the after Christmas cold that you're catching from the lot of Christmas kisses and hugs. :( Hope you'll feel better, Tim. Hugs!

I feel sadness along with the sickness...Sugar sweetness turned sour...Oh lets hope for some Honey to replace sugar gone...Tomorrow is a better day.

One of these days you will learn about all of those germs on shopping carts. Get well soon, friend. Chicken soup and shnapps.

A sad but well written poem Tim. It sounds like you are tired as well. I can understand the feelings you portray in this.
