Don’t Tell Me

September 29, 2022
Don't tell me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t tell me 
I must be the same
same as you, not me.

Don’t tell me
my beating heart
doesn’t count.

Don’t tell me 
my thoughts are just lies.

Don’t tell me 
the tears I weep will never
bring back ones lost.

Don’t tell me this
I ask of you
I plead, I cry.

The Essence Of Me

Essence of Me ~ illustration by Patrice

No one can 
will be 
the essence of me. 

Me, alone 
is the only one 
I am. 

Pure with faults 
that’s who 
who I am, I can
will be.

You Haven't Been The One ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

I know 
you haven’t been
the one
to make a difference
in my life.

That can only be
has to be
my purpose
my only purpose
forever, ever be.

Tortured And Sad

Tortured And Sad ~ Illustration by Patrice

Tortured and sad 
struggle to understand 
the world in my world 
beyond the bad. 

See the goodness 
believe and be glad 
for tomorrow 
may be better 
tortured nor sad.

My Guiding Light

My Guiding Light ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

In the midst of the darkest night 
you are my guiding light 

With the bright beam of morning day 
you show me my way 

You give me life 

You save my soul 

I feel you 

You are
my ever present guiding light.

Solely Told Her

Solely Told Her ~ self-illustration by Patrice

told her what 
I think 
no anger, sadness 
did I convey 

Nothing more 
than encouragement 
nothing more 
would I say 

Moving on 
I made a difference 
in herself 
this hour, this day 

nothing else 
did I say.

Happy ~ Illustration by Patrice

Make it happy 
make it be something
you take home 
giving joy and pleasantries. 

No strife or anger 
nor what ever could be 
just happy, happy as can be.

I Have Nothing To Say

I Have Nothing To Say ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

I have nothing to say 

– Today –

Words are none 
mute and quietly nothing 

I may say 
great words of wisdom 
in coming days 

But for now 

– Today – 

I have nothing to say.
