No One

August 4, 2022
No One ~ Photo by Patrice

No one 
No one goes down the road
I need to go
no one sees the things I see
no 
no one does

no one feels
the pain 
the shame I can’t conceal
I’m sure
no one does

But up above, surrounding me
is a presence that I know
I feel, I see
holds,
embraces me

Guiding me throughout
this perilous journey
like no one else ever does
no one
no one does.

Quietly

Quietly I lay 
waiting for the sky 
to take away 
all the hurt, pain 
I experienced 
yesterday 

Quietly, quietly I lay.

Happiness

August 18, 2020

Happiness ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
the last of heartbreak or the door
to
Happiness

Sadness, pain frolic on the path
tripping all attempts at prosperity
with
Happiness

They stand there laughing hard
mocking attempts at joy
and
Happiness

Take a breath, a deep sigh
all this will pass and once again
you’ll bask in the pleasures
of
Exquisite Happiness.

A Tear Drop

February 9, 2018

A tear drop
Runs down my cheek
Taking with it all I cherish
All I seek.

A tear wells up
Clouding my eyes
So they can’t see
The pain devouring me.

A tear drops quietly
On lips unable to cry
Any words that fit
These feelings I dispise.

A tear falls
Down my cheek
Landing on my broken heart
Whose pain won’t go away.

A tear flows down
Taking with it all love
All joy
I hoped I’d found.

I feel
A tear running down.

Soldiers March

August 15, 2017

Fox Hounds on Parade - Photo by Patrice

Soldiers march
Feet hitting the ground
Sending thunder, fear
That does resound
In a heart filled in ache
Pity and pain
All those things not needed
But
Unfortunately
Part of the refrain.

I Close My Eyes Just To Feel My Heart

November 11, 2016

Dedicated to those that served and gave all

 

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Dedicated to Sue, who has lost her beloved horse, Yorkie.
Our thoughts are with you.

I close my eyes just to feel my heart
Feel the pain
Please make it to depart
Lost to all never more to be
The call I loved and adored from thee.

Feel the sadness reign
Beginning down the path
Of no gladness, ecstasy
Only sadden, weeping pain.

You have gone, lost to me
Remorse is not the word
I need or want to see
Tears once of joy shattered
Left, gone no more to employ
Only rivers long, tragic and so deep
Flowing with overwhelming sadness
Do they weep.

Brought down to my knees
Blows of anguish
Anger
Morose disbelief.

Truly thought you’d live forever
Now know is never going to be
Love you ever
Ever please believe
Wanted never
You to leave me never
Ever leave me never please.

Now gone I oh so…

Sadness Comes And Goes

October 14, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sadness comes
and goes
Strive to feel
The pain
Then let it go.

No use to dwell
And ponder
Just see it
And let it go.

It makes you
No less
It makes you
No more.

It just makes you
The one to love
For evermore.

Tortured Souls Hear The Pain

January 15, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Tortured souls hear the pain
Nothing in it, all in vain
Climbing out, out from pain
Crucial not to be flushed
Down the drain.

Melody running in my head
Ponder what I really dread
Muster forth the power said
Rock all that fuels
This in my head.

Sometimes

October 13, 2015

Trumpet Flower - Photo by Patrice

Sometimes the world will cry
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes the rain will wash away
The hurt, the anger and the pain
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes I need to say
I’ll cry but only for today
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes

Three Years Ago Tomorrow

February 27, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

MontyThree years ago tomorrow,
Monty died today.
I Feel the sadness and the pain
Just like it was yesterday.

He stayed with us a little longer
Not for himself, but to help make us stronger,
To be able to accept that final day.
Three years ago tomorrow,
When Monty died today.

To cherish and remember
All that was good and dear.
About Monty,
who three years ago tomorrow
Died today.

The last day of February,
The 29th to be exact
Which tomorrow isn’t there
So, three years ago tomorrow,
Monty died today.
