Agonizing, Difficult Regret

October 8, 2015

Agonizing, difficult regret

Struggling to understand

Just what I did to regret

For no soft heart opens up

Or holds me close

Only solitude, loneliness

Are at my command.

Life of near and far away

Feels trodden upon

No joy to lift me up

No smile that helps me stand

Only agonizing, difficult regret

Struggling to understand.

Gone Into The Wonder

October 7, 2015

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

Gone into the wonder of the moment
Delving into the presence I feel
No heart beats just a moment
No heart can repeal
The sound lost from the moment
It’s just a wonderful wonder of a moment
Allowing me to feel.

When I Die

When I die and go to bed
Let me lie and not instead
Listen to the world around
Singing happy, coursing songs.

Let me not beneath the soul
Hear a call of some callous foe
Let me think of not just dread
When I die and go to bed

Nothing Really Happens

October 1, 2015

Nothing really happens until I decide to live the life given
No one else is responsible for anything of mine
My part must be played
Paramount above everything.

Last used Oct. 1/15

Look to yourself
Look within, inside
Answers are there
Waiting to be tried.

My eyes cry
They cry and I don’t know why.
