Sleepy Tired

Sleepy tired
Worry wakes me in the night
Toss turn
Feeling no sleep
As anguish plays on my sleepless stage
In a darkness with no saving light.

Maybe in the morning
All will be clear
A path opening up, a way from here to there
But tonight greeted with only so many questions
Keeping me sleepy tired
In a dim, dark hopeless night.

All Of Me

June 10, 2021
All of Me ~ Photo by Patrice

Let no man see the turmoil
Boiling inside of me 
Let it be something to handle 
Not take control
Of all of me 

Joy and gratitude
Are the ones I want to see 
For they will take me 
On a journey full of happiness  
Just for me.

Holding On

June 9, 2021
Holding On ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding down and very still 
As the world moves round 
Round 
Revolving forever 
Never still. 

Will I fall off
Or
Hold on 
Grasping threads
Of what’s to come?

Hardly know
Just holding on

Together

Together we’ll be 
Together we’ll stay
For the earth is wondrous 
Creating love 
Each
And everyday. 

Let no man pull us apart 
Let no one fear nor cry 
For together we’ll be 
Forever
Far past the day we die.

Write

June 4, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Write
What you need to.

Write
What you feel too
Doesn’t matter if it
Never sees daylight
Only known on pages
Of a book closed tight.

Write
Let it out
Let it be recorded on
The slate that makes you be
What you’ve become
You see.

The Best I’ve Ever Been

June 3, 2021
The Best I’ve Ever Been ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

 

I know I haven’t been 
The best you’ve ever seen 
I’ve tried, I tried 
But after all the manoeuvring 
It hasn’t happened 
It hasn’t come to be. 

I haven’t seen my way 
And settled with 
The acknowledgement that
I’ll be the best of me 
The best I can 
The best I’ve ever been
Today.

Feel The Anger

June 2, 2021

Feel the anger 
The pressure baring down 
Grasp the lighter, redeeming saviour 
Hold him close
Move to higher ground. 

Let no one’s hatred, anger find you 
For you have a buffer, 
A wall of love all around 
You are safe
No more pressure baring down.

Nothing To Say

June 1, 2021
Trout Drawing ~ Illustration by Patrice

Nothing to say not in any way 
All has been said
Then left to be 
Easy to live with or diving down 
Into pure agony. 

Nothing can stop all these
Bad thoughts 
But you can replace them
With something pleasant 
Making your face into a huge smiley.

No, nothing to say
Not this morning, this evening
Not today.

Yesterday

Teck, in Remembrance

When I think
Of all the things
That have disappeared
Gone away
Happened yesterday
My heart joins forces
With my soul
To help me understand
Why it all had to go away

Yesterday.

Feel The Presence

May 27, 2021
Feel The Presence ~ Photo by Patrice

Feel the presence 
feel the rays of sunshine 
happiness and gratitude 
infiltrate each waking moment 
everyday. 

Breathe it in 
wash away
dirty anger not needed
not felt nor experienced 
no, not in any way. 
~ Patrice
