The Way The World Goes

February 8, 2018

Shiloh ~ Pencil Art by Patrice

Haven’t told my heart the way the world goes
Haven’t said the words that no one else does know
Won’t even tease the strings
That connect her to my sauntering toes
Nor let her ears, my lips know
Just how the world goes.

Ever Wonder Why?

February 1, 2018

Ever wonder why?
Ever think things happen
On a line
You can’t deny?

Ever wonder why
Answers come
But don’t seem to be
The ones asked
Or seen technically?

Ever wonder, wonder why?

Taking A Break

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Taking a break
Going to wait til I feel
My thoughts are revived.

Will think of you still
But just not writing until
I feel an inspiring thought.

My Journey Is Special

December 20, 2017


Fawn ~ Illustration by PatriceMy journey is special
I am elite
No one else walks, talks
Or looks like me.

My heart skips a beat
When I look in the mirror
For there someone exceptional
Is looking at me.

No one in this world
This story or be
The exact same example
The same human being.

I am special
I am me.

Death Is Overpowering Me

December 19, 2017

Lone Dog – Art by Patrice

Death is overpowering me
Coming, telling me
What to do, where to go
Where to be.

Death is walking beside me
Holding gently, telling me
Souls who go don’t leave
They too, are alongside me.

Death is breathing life inside me
My time will come but not now
Go live a life full of love
Fun and beauty.

This death tells me.

Things happen at a
No one knows the road to go
Down a path
With all sorts of things
For the sun to show
Filled with glamour unsurpassed by
Yes, I’m watching
