I wonder
Why heartbreak has to be.

Fingers Trudge

September 29, 2021
Fingers Trudge ~ Illustration by Patrice

Fingers trudge
across the page 
feeling
the paper’s texture 
smooth
hardly any grain. 

Will the pen 
fill the lines
printed
on this page 
or
will it be vacant 
unused
crumpled
thrown away? 

Fingers hesitate
and then 
pick up trusty pen
and say 
words that fill this page 
with all they want
need
to say.

My Heart Aches

September 27, 2021
My Heart Aches ~ Illustration by Patrice

My heart aches 

Surrounded by people 
who think me stupid 

My heart aches 

For these people have judged
convicted me of dumb behaviour 

My heart aches  

At the moment I see no alternative 
it must be true 
I have no saving grace, no saviour 

My heart aches

Why have I come?
Where will I go?

Answers here
But
Do they show
The world I’ll live in
Places I’ll go
Feelings I’ll feel?

Answers
I will or will not know.

Powerful Feelings

Last used Aug. 11/21

Powerful feelings
potent times 
Master the transition from ordinary 
To the perfect time.

No Writing

August 9, 2021

No writing this morning 
no words to be said 
everything left on my pillow 
the words, they slipped 
right out of my head.

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.

Write

June 4, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Write
What you need to.

Write
What you feel too
Doesn’t matter if it
Never sees daylight
Only known on pages
Of a book closed tight.

Write
Let it out
Let it be recorded on
The slate that makes you be
What you’ve become
You see.

Delicately
I embrace thee

Softly
I caress thee

While with my whole heart

I unconditionally
Love thee.

Feelings Are Hard To Decipher

May 13, 2021

Feelings are hard to decipher 
anger, hurt, happiness or joy 
what are they trying to say? 

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll know 
I’ll have answers 
not known, understood
today.
