Today Or Yesterday

June 8, 2018

No makeup on today
Or yesterday
Skin festering, itching burning
Hives have made their way
Onto my face, my neck
Above my heart
Everywhere it seems
Gasping for some respite
Scratched raw
Went seeking help
Not once but twice

The world has turned again
For today
I have my peace, my rest
Skin reduced to normal
Not like yesterday
On rising this morning, today
No more itching
Like yesterday.

Stolen From My Heart

May 15, 2018

RIP Brave Barking Dog ~ Photo by Patrice

Stolen from my heart
A sense of love
Got away.

Burdened with such
Array of emotions
Can’t hold back
Hold at bay.

Smouldering anger
Burning things precious
Held dear
Stolen, forgotten
Got away.
~ Patrice
