Terrible Things

Terrible things have happened 
Terrible things 
Terrible things live

We must live
Not to harbour 
Those terrible things.

Not hear, feel 
Those awful 
Terrible things.

I Am Feeling Down

September 29, 2020

I Am Feeling Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I am feeling down and all alone
Feel my heart beat a lonesome tone
Crying, standing in the wake
Of not where I want to be.

Hoping the mists of sadness
Will disappear, leaving behind
A world bright and clear
Full of anticipation, happiness
Not this awful, nagging fear and sadness.

Unholy Being Resting Near Me

Unholy being
Resting near me

Teeth long like daggers
Smile sinister scaring me
Breath hisses spewing forth
Nasty, nasty.

I will brace myself
I will be optimistic
Lead my life as if
I don’t feel, hear, smell
This awful, awful entity.

Ten Thousand Things

April 3, 2017

Flying Stingray ~ Photo by Patrice



When I sleep and rest my eyes
My mind she thinks
Ten thousand things
Sometimes waking dragons
And awful, horrible, terrible things
Or she rests in peace
Delving into more magic things
Flying high with no restraints
Unencumbered by earthful ties
She soars, she dares
She climbs the stairs
Into a world
Where there are no cares
There tonight
Maybe I will dwell
No one knows nor can tell
I only hope the night will pass
Giving me in sleep a chance
To dream
Another wondrous
Ten thousand things.

Tortured Thoughts

November 2, 2016

Pale Bodies ~ Photo by Patrice

Tortured thoughts
Ricochet thru my mind
Leaving harrowing things harbouring
Those that I don’t like to find.

Why have they come?
Why won’t they go?

I need not believe in their anger
I need not tow all this piled up
This awful collection of
Tortured thoughts.
