Fresh
I’m thankful. 
For this brutally honest
raw
painful
buMp in the road.
I am happier than I’ve ever been.
Freed from your poisonous nature. 
Feeling joy again. New.
Fresh, like a start.
Healing, for the heart....Read More

Maybe it’s a good thing in the long run
You’re the water that shines beneath the sun

Don’t you want to know more?
You’re begging...Read More

You're a priceless treasure
Anxiety and depression have spiraled out of control
Life's punches have certainly taken their toll

Another bump in the road 
Another dream dreamt
Another goal accomplished

Getting ready to go on a trip to Arizona...packing up extra
The car is moving and we are doing our thing
I'm sitting in the back of the caravan, waiting for mama

Waiting patiently - improving -

Waves of sadness wash over me like the tide.
We had a love so bright, and now I’m empty inside.

Worry not, it's a minor bump in the road
Happens rarely, must stay near the commode
Won't bore you details
Just a bit off the rails
Be back just as soon I feel better and reload

A bump in the road
What's the cost
Cat has my tongue 
Confidence lost
Punctured lung

Unstable worm
On a dying leaf

I'm qualified
But afraid of the blade
Being denied

I sell myself short
Of talents acquired
A deadly sport
Self worth retired

Before long, the...Read More

The Navy Seals absorbed the brunt

on rooftop stand, machine gun stunt,
a grim attack,...Read More

There's often bumps in the road
Eventually they tend to sort themselves out
But sometimes it's a heavier load

Feelings run deep, they cut like a knife
Small differences complicate things
We're misunderstood, we overreact
Send out arrows and slings

If only...Read More

Sharing a room with my sister 
David was plastered over each and every wall
It's a wonder she'd never got a paper cut or blister
From all the posters she did lovingly install.

Walking like a shadow
I thought you were one of a kind,
one to take me single-handedly like the blind.
You always talk to me with that nice smile,
