Farewell London
No words to speak,
no words to write.
I bid farewell,
to London tonight !

The city of joy,
the city of dreams,
my time with you,
is up it seems !

You have given me experiences,
never to forget.
In all my life,
the best ones yet !

A bunch of Wild flowers
Far away she began to drift 
to the distant land of hers
When reality seemed to ruin everything
she went to that place
The last safe place she calls
"Where everything is not justified by what you see and smell"

Burdens
Take this pain from me
Hold it for just a minute
A moment i can be free
My life it does inhibit

Something you can't keep
The pain is just too great
Feel how it cuts deep
My burden, yes it's my fate

Another soul it would break

Clackers
White crisp shirts
The clackers make their way to
The central
Sea salt is in the air
Frown lines and stress lines
Upon canvases of many
Wooden benches
To rest your heavy heart
Red blisters
Warm conversations
To ease the ache
The Achilles heel
In this big central
The lone white swan
Hiding near

Oh Very Young
I see a house that’s quiet
And she sits there alone
Her hands hold patterned pieces
Of cloth she has sewn

Blocks from boy’s printed shirt tails
And girl’s soft flowered silk
Mixed and matched together
To make each child a quilt

Too seldom these precious moments pass
She...Read More

Premium Member PAIN




Wet as rain
Touch grips pain
Once again


Time feels slow
As hurt grows
Hollow show


That and this
Hit and miss
Crumples ease


In a daze
A harsh maze
Anxious face


Loss flings art
Pain now starts
Heavy heart


Odd this poise
Flings hurt voice
Abducts choice


Not in vain
Bear with pain
Yet again

Premium Member The Ecstasy of Storms
There are no intervening years. 
That is only an illusion. 
The mind goes where it will, 
	unrestrained. 
We bless and we scorn, 
But it all returns to us again,
	unnoticed. 

Music might reveal a certain nakedness-- 
A vision perhaps, 
But illusion...Read More

The Young Lady
There was a young lady,
That could not even to afford shoes;
She had eight children'
And thought "what should I do?"

The young lady had problems-to just speak of 3'
Addiction, Mental Health, anti-social personality.
To do what was right, did not come easy to...Read More

Rain

The rain can tell you so much
It holds comfort

Hope and loneliness

Loving the gloomy look outside as a child

My Home
A small town looks a dot on the map.
It was my own big little world.
Giggles of children playing together 
weaved a rosary of music and merriment.
A safe place greeted me when I came back
with people who cried when I cried,...Read More

Premium Member My Heart in Prison
The ugly prison was dark and dank.
Solitary cells lined up on each side.
I paced up and down the corridor
Saw each prisoner his face hide.

I knew them all, for I put them there,
Uncle John who stole half my earnings,
My teacher who...Read More

Premium Member A Bird in a Gilded Cage
I was condemned 
from the first day I saw you.
Bewitched, enamored for ever
by your inexplicable beauty.
Little did I know
where you were to lead me.
I was a slave to Eros,
a fickle love 
god aided by his snide piper Pan.
You brought me...Read More

Kneeling
"You know that feeling,
When you are kneeling

Saying prayers,
To that God who cares

For something that your really want,
Hopeful in Him your confidant 

To calm your anxiety,
By rewarding your piety

And lighten your heavy heart,
From blessings prayers impart 

To know that all will...Read More

On the Edge
Lost in your own thoughts
While you stand still on the edge
Unmindful of what surrounds
In silence you wait
The sky almost overcast
None seems to be forthcoming

Watching from afar
Distance standing between us
Your image instilled on me
With a heavy heart
In the wind I will...Read More

"You shall not chase my gloom away!
There's such a charm in melancholy."
(Samuel Rogers, 1814)

Silence....too much eloquent a silence, 
Lately, filled up these nights and days.

Premium Member Yet As You Grieve

You miss them more than cards can say
and think of them throughout the day.
Yet memories fond will bring a smile,
giving sadness chase awhile.

Material things that they may leave
are cherished tokens as you grieve.
Yet keepsakes sometimes can't replace
caressing of your loved...Read More

one day
I write
with heavy heart
my words
laden down
with pain

broken heart
healing
so slowly
takes time

maybe soon
hurt goes
smile again

good times

Premium Member Apologetic Heart
Apologetic heart
Cannot sleep
Or swallow

Feeling sad
Kicking memory of idiocy
Self-angry

Heavy heart
Too sad to cry
Mirror glares as I practice my lines

Will you answer your door?
Would I?
I over-guess myself, feeling dejected.

Sorry and sad.  Depressed.
I have to try.
Dressing quickly. Love propels me.
