The very topic is inclusive of the word,

Knowing that we are all passing away,

My dear friend told me I was a good mom today. 
I went into the bathroom and tears sprang to my eyes.

Fear of Acceptance

The queen called her jester, 
and requested a joke! 
He had nothing to say, 
He just sat there, 
as he had already choked. 

Nonsense was delivered, 
to the king of the land…
to the shock and surprise 
of every...Read More

Shorty was a little dog, 
Curly was too. 
They played every day, 
until there was nothing else to do. 

Rolling on the grass, 
digging up the garden, 
chasing butterflies
and frogs near the pond. 

The days are full, 
of everything...Read More

Love me enough to make me long for you
I want to crave for you
Make me feel like I really need no other

At least a hug
Or even just a...Read More

I hope you know 
What we meant to me 
More than any seed I could ever sow

I hope you understand
The impact you had on me
A little undeserved, better than I planned

I hope in time your stars align
And they come closer...Read More

My neighbour’s addicted to Twitter
He’ll tweet when he’s doing a ‘sitter’
When he squats for a dump
He tweets more than Don Trump
No wonder his wife feels so bitter

The whole world knows what Fred is doing
He’s tweeting whilst weeing and poohing
Is nothing...Read More

Hate's got its benefits
Each party going their seperate way
Where partly knowing their's is best
means others can't consway

When all is lost to each and all
for coming back together
for what was lost to righteousness
when each was sure to plether

So my girlfriend is getting married,
And this time round,charm did not fall on my side,
She found a new fresh rib after accusing mine of costochondritis,
She now has a Bentley owner thanks to her insatiable appetite for heavy guzzlers.

Spoken whispers as we walk hand in hand along the shore	
Motion of the waves crashing is hypnotic and refreshing
Emotion expressed by your gestures leave me wanting more

You're such a beautiful creation
Unique among all creatures
Your brilliancy is unhidden
Voice like that of the angels
Smiles like attractive cheese

Sparkling like the galaxies
Always lost when stare at your lips

I Learnt To Control My Emotions
I used to get moved by your every word
I thought you meant everything you said
The disappointments were evident
For on you I was so dependent 
Then I learned to control my emotions

Her hair is snow-white, 
but it was not always so. 
It was black, like the night. 
It was deep in color, 
near as dark as shadow, 
but not that of the moon...
facing out. 

She was warm, but now...Read More

The reality is that I love men. 
They are perfect, just as they are. 
Not always doing as they are supposed to do. 
Not paying attention to fears that are false.

Have you ever noticed? 
When you sit your hands upon the keys. 
If you close your eyes, 
just right...
not too tight, no peeking, but still
they move all on their own. 
They hear things we have yet to listen too....Read More

You don’t see me. 
I see you, every day. 
I am afraid to say hello. 
You may say good-bye.

The basket of castoffs is full. 
No one can wear clothes, torn and stained. 
Holes and rips that show use. 
The scissors cut them like butter, 
sharp and straight and curved and cornered. 
Blocks, strips, and flowers,

Long fine hair,

I am slipping. 
Not slowly but faster than expected. 
I wanted it to go better. 
I made a plan and have a goal. 
It has not worked out.

Crying, sighing, and not dying.
