Seeking, Seeing Frustration

Seeking, seeing frustration hurt
Haunting me
Move to the left, turn to the right
Nothing works, not tonight
Maybe tomorrow the sun will shine
Clouds escape to a happier time
Taking me with them on a path fluffy white
Filled with joy gentle and kind
No regrets
For I’m in that happier time.

In The Morning

In the morning
The sun does rise
Spreading warmth, beauty
Across the skies.

Mine to behold
Mine to see
Mine to be part of
Forever, into eternity.

The Feeder Hangs

The feeder hangs
Quiet and discreet
Waiting for company
To enjoy her treats.

No bad or evil thoughts
Does she convey
Feeding all who happen
To pass her way.

Filled up or near empty
She stands quietly there
Holding something
She lives to share.

Never Understood

Never understood
How you could walk away
Never turning round
To even say
A kind goodbye

Never understood.

Can’t figure out why
Why it made me cry
Wish with all my heart
I too
Could leave and maybe die

Never understood.

Not now in that awful moment
Moved on and found
The world a lovely place
Full of treasures, beauty, grace
Making all that heartache
Pass away

That, I understand.

But in brief moments
Of some days
I think of you
And still

Can never really understand.

I Sit Here Wishing

I sit here wishing
What is
Could not be.

Hoping life
Would be a little gentler
Take pity on me.

Trusting it
Will get better
So all can be happy.

Doesn’t matter
What I wish
Cause life is what it will be.

Seeing The Scars

Seeing the scars
Coated over
Feeling, festering
Oozing beneath
The anger welling up
To soldier on
Inspire of what
Lies under underneath.

Outside Is Cloudy

Outside is cloudy
Barring, marring
My way
Help is at hand
But I can’t reach it
Something blocks
The way
Turning, trying hard
To make my way
To the destination
I know is here, is mine
I’m sure today
Just have to move
Push those clouds
