The Light

October 3, 2022
The Light ~ Photo by Brent

There before me stands 
the light 

The one that’ll be
my guiding light 
to a world
I know exists

Where I’ll be
oblivious to heartache
melancholy thoughts
and pain. 

Plus, other things
I can’t explain. 

See me drench
myself in this light
Feel its warmth, beauty
and
unsurpassed delight.

Don’t Tell Me

September 29, 2022
Don't tell me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t tell me 
I must be the same
same as you, not me.

Don’t tell me
my beating heart
doesn’t count.

Don’t tell me 
my thoughts are just lies.

Don’t tell me 
the tears I weep will never
bring back ones lost.

Don’t tell me this
I ask of you
I plead, I cry.

Can I Be Vain

September 28, 2022
Can I Be Vain ~ Photo by Patrice

Can
I be vain? 

Laugh
and
show distain
for that
which I don’t appreciate? 

Would I be judged
and
found to be a shallow
miserable entity? 

Can
I afford to be?

Can’t See

September 1, 2022
Can't See ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t see where I’m going 
nor
where I’ve been 
the road is rough 
too many bends 
for me.

Will I come
out to the open? 

See the path before me 
gently sloping
to a valley full of fun  
no sadness nor depression 
so deep. 

Hopefully 
this is what I’ll see
will be.

No More

August 9, 2022
No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
Can no one say. 

No more to hear 
To see. 

No more will be suffice 
To carry us through this day 
This night. 

No more to feel
What wasn’t felt
Yesterday. 

No more 
Will there be
A difference between us. 

No more you, no more me
No more.

Some Days

November 14, 2018

Wood Violets ~ Photo by Patrice

Some days are sad
In remembering the past
The heartache and anguish
Seems to last and last.

You know yeas have passed
You know all have moved on
Yet still some days are hard
The sadness seems to go
On and on.
~ Patrice
