I Know The Difference

June 3, 2019

Martin River Morning ~ Photo by Patrice

I know the difference
Between frozen and tropical land
I know light is not dark
And dark is not light.

I know the difference
Between morning and evening light
The difference is obvious
They are not alike.

But the in-between is hazy
Not easy to read
A conundrum it seems
For not darkness nor light.

Lighting Strikes A Hummingbird

Lighting strikes a hummingbird
As she sits, sleeping in the night.

Thunder crashes
Wind wails
Rain weeps.

No right is done
When tragedy screams thru
A dark, unforgiving night.

When tragedy screams thru
A dark, unforgiving night.

Deep In A Wretched Chasm Of Despair

October 18, 2013

Deep in a wretched chasm of despair
Struggling, struggling to get out
Out of there
Fallen down a well of no repair
Intimidating, dark down there.

Feel the walls
Feel their strength
They’ll help you climb back up
Into a life of freedom
Happiness, no despair.

Don’t dwell way down
Way down there
In that chasm, that well
Filled with hell
Way down there.

Bring yourself up, out
Feel the rays spreading out
Warming, bringing joy
Happiness all about
No pain.

No heartache there about
As we bask in the warmth
Of the sun, knowing
We’ll never fall back down
into that dark chasm
We’ll never, ever fall
ever at all.

My Heart Sends The Word

My heart sends the word
To those that want to be
Free and deep dark
In the sea of cordial ecstasy.

The focus is bright as day turns into dark, dark night.

I Struggle Here Today

September 20, 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I struggle here today
In a deep and dark moody way
Anger wells up within
Stepping on a smiling grin
Bringing frustration to the fore
Please go away
Be here never, no more.

Nothing more to say
Try to shift my mood away
From darkness, anger
And all that stuff
To where the sun shines
Clear, oh so bright
And I can be an endearing part
Of whatever hits my aching heart.
