My Heart Aches

March 31, 2022
My Heart Aches

My heart aches
my soul cries 
for a time
of clear innocence 
a time that time
has taken 
to the past 

No more to feel 
to bask
in rays of light
hearted laughs 

Sadness overwhelms 
hurt
seems to last 
til no more tears left 
to sob
crying for the now
distance past.

Conspiracy

June 18, 2019

Deer at the deck ~ Photo by Patrice

Conspiracy comes and flows
Taking breath
Out of control
No one knows who to trust
Where safe lives
Or
Whether the world
As we know it
Will turn to dust.

Conspiracy shows
She has no mercy
Reigning ruthlessly
Laughing at despair
Smirking
At courtesy.

Conspiracy destroys
Undermines
The beauty of innocence
And
Tenderness becomes
An unimaginable crime.
~ Patrice
