Patti ~ Illustration by Patrice

Memories are with me
I wish had died

Memories of an existance
I think of and cry

No memories of happiness
Or pleasure survive

Remember memories
That took me out

Of the memories
That just make me sigh

Memories, my memories
That make me cry.

The Way The World Goes

February 8, 2018

Shiloh ~ Pencil Art by Patrice

Haven’t told my heart the way the world goes
Haven’t said the words that no one else does know
Won’t even tease the strings
That connect her to my sauntering toes
Nor let her ears, my lips know
Just how the world goes.

Then It Happened

February 7, 2018

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Then it happened going far from away
To the depths of happiness
Making my year, my day.

Holding on with joyous gladness
Heading thru the mired deep
Coming out in the other happiness
Feeling pleasure ever so sweet.

When I Think Of What Has Come

February 5, 2018

Love and Tenderness ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

When I think of what has come
What has gone
My heart breaks from holding on
To a life that has already gone
A life that now has succumb to being
Just a shell of that that’s been
No more laughter
No joyous lightly radiating beam.

Sit in silence quietly
Wait for death to take hold of me
Wrap it’s deathly arms enveloping
Taking me to a place with maybe
Some of that old ecstasy
But til then I’ll wait and see
Think of what has come
And what’s to be.

Ever Wonder Why?

February 1, 2018

ackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Ever wonder why?
Ever think things happen
On a line
You can’t deny?

Ever wonder why
Answers come
But don’t seem to be
The ones asked
Or seen technically?

Ever wonder, wonder why?

Taking A Break

January 15, 2018

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Taking a break
Going to wait til I feel
My thoughts are revived.

Will think of you still
But just not writing until
I feel an inspiring thought.

Pull Me To The Centre

January 10, 2018

Kaos ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Pull me to the centre
Stand in front of me
Protect me from whatever comes
To inflict harm on me.
