My Heart Aches

July 28, 2021
My Heart Aches ~ Illustration by Patrice

My heart aches, my soul cries 
For the loves  
I’ve lost
And 
Live no more. 

The time came they must depart 
Leaving anguish
Loss 
In my broken heart. 

Someday I know I’ll see again 
Those I loved
I lost 
They’ll be with me forever
Forever once again.

Delicately Said

Delicately said
The words come out
Saying things
Leaving no doubt.

There is a God
He lives right here
His breath is felt
He’s very near.

Words said
Heal a broken heart
Like falling rain
Never to be lost again.

A Tear Drop

A tear drop
Runs down my cheek
Taking with it all I cherish
All I seek.

A tear wells up
Clouding my eyes
So they can’t see
The pain devouring me.

A tear drops quietly
On lips unable to cry
Any words that fit
These feelings I dispise.

A tear falls
Down my cheek
Landing on my broken heart
Whose pain won’t go away.

A tear flows down
Taking with it all love
All joy
I hoped I’d found.

I feel
A tear running down.

Human Kind

October 28, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

A child watches helplessly
As a hunter shoots her pet crow.
What part of that is Human Kind?

A teen is beaten about the head
Until she falls to the ground.
Kicked until she stands.
It then starts over again.
What part of that is Human Kind?

A young woman pleads
For her dog’s life
A rifle is pointed at her head
And she is told
‘Stop crying or I’ll shoot you too”.
What part of that is Human Kind?

Human Kind
Is when a police officer
Could have given a ticket
Towed the truck.
But instead
Leads you out of the dark
From lost back onto the right road.
That is Human Kind.

Human Kind
Is when four young men stop
To give a ride and support
To two young girls
One sobbing, stranded
Somewhere in the mountains
After being kicked out for refusing.
That is Human Kind.

Human Kind

Feel Comfort In Your Heart

February 7, 2014

Feel comfort in your heart
Feel the gentle rolling start
Tumbling from your head
Putting love in your heart.

See it linger
Going pass your throat
Moving quietly down
To a waiting heart.

Always remember
Smouldering love
Will not smother
It will open up and mend
A broken heart.

Feel the comfort, love
Seeping into your heart
Feel it traveling
Throughout the world
With your soul connected
Always
To a loving, gentle heart.
~ Patrice

Human Kind

A child watches helplessly
As a hunter shoots her pet crow.

Human Kind
Is when a friend
Wraps their arms around you
As you scream in anguish
Because a loved one has died.
That is Human Kind.

Human Kind
Is when a gentle soul
Helps you pick up the pieces
Of your broken heart
And put it back together.
That is Human Kind.

Be Human Kind.
