I was just laid off after twenty years;
Put out to pasture and facing my fears.

Nowhere to sleep, nowhere to roam.

And let myself feel every fall...Read More

Premium Member Lost Maybe for the Best
I must accept the message, “You lost,”
I suppose in the nick of time.
The glow that I carried with hope
Has dulled, the sun gone away to hide.

Now that life is without you,
Days of illusions and dreams gone away,
I am gathered, kneaded...Read More

Paradise in your eyes

I was love's emissary...
on a mission from God,
love letters were written ...
but, in the desert were lost,

A broken compass to guide me...
but, hidden in the sand,
Thirsty desire compels me...
as, hope slipped through my hands

Bridge
