Do I

February 2, 2023
Do I ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Do I do it 
Or
Leave it alone?

The question is asked
And
I know 
The decision to be made
The answer given 
Is
My choice
My choice alone.

Which way
Will I go 
Which one will I leave
Leave
All alone?

I Haven’t Been

January 30, 2023
I Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t been
As close as I should have been
It seems life has dealt me
a heavy load
A load I think I need to carry. 

Please, if you could
Let me see where 
I can lay down
All that isn’t necessary. 

Giving me
The time, the space
To be the one
You need, I need to be
For an blessed eternity.

Secretly

January 26, 2023
Secretly ~ Illustration by Patrice

Secretly
I say the words needed to see
The goodness in bad
The needs needed
To be
Loved and lovingly.

Secretly
I say these words
With
Clarity.

In The Bowels Of Remorse

January 17, 2023
In The Bowels Of Remorse ~ Illustration by Patrice

In the bowels of remorse 
heartbreak
and
deep unrelenting
sadness 

Will strive
to come out
attempt to be happy
and
sane

Till that day
I’ll hear that sweet 
sad 
melancholy reframe

Playing
playing over and over 
and
over
over again.

No More To Say

January 10, 2023
No More To Say ~ Watercolour by Patrice

No More
To Say 
No more
To do
Going forward
Just
We two.

Loving
Every minute
Laughing
All the time
We will do it 
Just
Give us
A little more time.

Soldiers Soldier

December 13, 2022

Soldiers soldier ~ Illustration by Patrice

Soldiers soldier,
lovers love 
Peace, tranquillity
come to those that soldier on
with love

Make me not
one
that believes
not in love

Make me a soldier
in that army conquering
hatred, prejudice
giving only 
unconditional love.

Lick Your Wounds

November 28, 2022
Lick Your Wounds ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Lick your wounds
Forget your ego
Dust that battered self off
While looking
To the future

See what’s best for you 
Feel no regrets
Lose no sleep wondering why
What happened
Happened

Don’t go deep inside self-pity
Know this was a message
Sent 
To keep you well
Moving forward 

Not
Skipping a single
Beat.

Fortunately For Me ~ Painting by Patrice

Fortunately for me 

Life
Brings changes
Things
I need to see, to be

Fortunately for me.

Once Again

November 10, 2022
Once Again ~ illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Once again I write
What I see
What I’m to hear as the words
Begin to be.

Sometimes so great
Sometimes just grim
But all those words need
Need to be written.

Spoken in text
To those that need them
Those to who
They were meant to be given.

No One Else

October 26, 2022
No One Else ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one else 
no one will be just the same
cause as you may know
or can see
we’re all unique
never not the same
not the same as
you and me.
