No One

No One ~ Photo by Patrice

No one 
No one goes down the road
I need to go
no one sees the things I see
no one does

no one feels
the pain 
the shame I can’t conceal
I’m sure
no one does

But up above, surrounding me
is a presence that I know
I feel, I see
embraces me

Guiding me throughout
this perilous journey
like no one else ever does
no one
no one does.

You Couldn’t Be

You Couldn't Be ~ Photo by Patrice

You couldn’t be 
what I needed 
wanted you to be. 

No matter
how hard you tried 
you couldn’t be. 

You couldn’t be 
all that I needed 
desired you to be. 

I see you couldn’t be 
you couldn’t be.

In The Heart

In the heart of my distress
I find an ark of happiness
Ferrys me to a life
In heaven’s image
No heartache, nor strife
In my dreams I seek, I see
This hallowed place I saw
I seek.

Tortured Are The Souls

Pale Bodies ~ Photo by Patrice

Tortured are the souls
I see
Writhing in pure agony.

No remorse can be seen
Only furious anger

Big Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Nobody said I had to know
Nobody knew whether
I needed to go
To a place so true
Where the sky is a radiant blue
The grass beneath soft, tender feet
Welcomes all
And holds them safe
Need not go to another place.

Nobody knew
Nor did they say
What would happen in a place
So full of beauty, dignity
And quiet grace
That I know, I’ll live, I’ll see today.

I Live In The Past

February 12, 2019

Model T on the hill ~ Photo by Patrice

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.


Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived

Only Thru The Looking Glass

January 7, 2019

Looking Thru the Looking Glass ~ Selfie

Only thru the looking glass
Can I see what resides
Resides inside of me.

Only thru the looking glass
Will I be able
Able to be free.

Only thru the looking glass
Can I really
Really be me.

I Learn Many Things

August 22, 2018

Tree Roots at Eugina Falls ~ Photo by Patrice

I learn many things
I see many times
The world as it turns

My heart knows a reason
To decline
The advances of the destructive
Filled with misery kind.

It comes from within
This loving gift coming from
The divine.

Hearing Nothing

July 19, 2018

Rocking Horse ~ Photo by Patrice

Hearing nothing, feeling all
How can I be in love
With nothing, nothing at all?

 With words I wander in my mind
Imaging scenarios, images of all kinds
Maybe won’t come to pass
Maybe will last and last.

Doesn’t matter
For I see, I feel
While hearing nothing
Nothing not at all.

Every Morning

Whales Tail Beach in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

Every morning I open my book
The words given to me.

Every morning I think about living
Free with courtesy.

Every morning I see
A different morning
I make it to be.
