Write

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.

We Keep Secrets

April 30, 2021

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

We keep secrets
We hold them tight
Never exposed
To see the morning light.

We keep secrets
Silent, secretive
They speak not a word
Sometimes to the grave
They’re carried, never heard.

We keep secrets
Untold secrets
We grasp them tight
Feeling the burden
The weight not light.

No One Told

March 2, 2021

No One Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one told, no one said
the secrets hidden deep
beneath my childhood bed.

Monsters and thoughts
so deep
didn’t make sense
to a little child trying to sleep.

Only my mother and father
could keep
those things below
my mattress and my sheets.

Letting me just spend the night
counting sheep.

Thinking About, Remembering When

March 1, 2021

Thinking about
remembering when
life was easy
and
very different

Was then just a step
I tread upon
to reach the sky
and
beyond?

Did I obtained
my desires
or
should I sit back,
sit down
and
begin again?

Courting Life, Fleeing Death

February 24, 2021

Courting Life, Fleeing Death ~ Illustration by Patrice

Courting life, fleeing death
Time passes
Taking no regard for
The rest.

Holding close, pushing aside
All things
I love, despise.

In tomorrow
The world may change
Leaving everything
Just the same.

Heaven Helps And Holds Me Close

Heaven Helps And Holds Me Close ~ Illustration by Patrice

Heaven helps
Holds me close

Doors open
Others close

Life goes on
Changing most

Where I least expect it.

Together

Together ~ Illustration by PatriceWe may not be together
but we won’t be far apart
and
together we’ll be again
when this misery does depart.
