Terror Holds My Heart

March 25, 2020

Terror
holds my heart
Still waiting
for the worst
To subside.

And my mind
Knows
The world
Of innocence
Will not grow
It’ll hide.

Only fear
Anger
Uncontrolled
Hate
Coupled with
Mistrust
If
we’re not careful
These
Will dominate.

My terror shows
I can not hide
These feelings
I feel
I describe.

Today Is A Sad Day For Me

March 28, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Today is a sad day for me
Today was the day I knew in my heart
My mom was dying.

Nothing, nothing I could do
Or say would stop it
This I knew in my heart
But not my head.

Anguish, fear, frightened
Looking for the answer
That would save her
Keep her here with me
Sadly, not to be.

Not once did I think
That maybe she had had enough
And wished to go
Oh no.

When I look back on this day
I see it was all about me
My feelings, my hurt
My need to have her here with me.

I said Goodbye that day
While deep inside, my heart knew
My head refused
Believing we’d have more, more happy days.

That inner voice, my heart
It knew
It knows the future and has lived the past.

She passed
She passed the next day
My mom, she…

Anger Frustration, Darkness And Fear

July 22, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Anger frustration
Darkness and fear.

They dwell here.

A moment ago
I drove them out
Back they came
Right back here.

Freedom to lose them
Freedom to be happy
Without anger, frustration
Darkness and fear.

No one to blame
No one to fear.

Muster the courage
Step out of the darkness
Step there to the place
We hold dear.

No anger, frustration
Darkness or fear.

Sudden Clouds

July 15, 2015

Thunder Clouds ~ Photo by Patrice

Sudden clouds
Come crashing down
Throwing thunder, lighting
All around.

Not to rest, no respite
Chaos, fear just surround
Bringing dread
The only feeling to be found.

Over soon
To see the light
Feel the sprinkle washing hope
Throughout the night.

No more quaking
No more fear
Only soothing trickle
Cleansing clear.

Today Is A Sad Day For Me

Seriously laughing, ridiculously crying
Moving thru the atmosphere.
There is no denying this is where
I have no fear.  ~ Patrice

Some Sometimes Fear

February 19, 2013

Some sometimes
Fear the best
There within
The rhyme.

I don’t know
What it’s all about
All I know I need to shout
That that’s hidden
Deep within the rhyme.
