week 613 ~ helpless but

with 2 comments

helpless but
still hoping
one door’s shut
helpless but
ties uncut
lives coping
helpless but
still hoping

week 472 ~ once upon a blameless fear

with one comment

once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real
when the future looms unclear
once upon a blameless fear
we hold tight to all that’s dear
wait for someone else’s deal
once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real

week 469 ~ perhaps I have been misreading the signs

with 2 comments

perhaps I have been misreading the signs
moving too hastily to conclusions
based on circumstances facts anyone’s
guess this mess of misdirection combines
paranoia and anger in a froth
of unknown duration much like whipped cream
that only lasts so long or a bad dream
or a candle that beckons a drunk moth
I flutter helplessly hooked soon to be
burned ripped hopes ride the rage out of my mouth
and I so long to hop a nightmare south
away from this truth or controversy
don’t think don’t talk but remember to breathe
you’ll ride out love’s storm like any disease

week 229 ~ things fall apart

things fall apart
that’s what they do
breaking your heart
things fall apart
can’t push restart
‘til we get through
things fall apart
that’s what they do

week 223 ~ if I were there I’d kiss you

with 4 comments

me.223

if I were there I’d kiss you
right on the top of your head
banish pain and hug you too
so tight there I’m not instead

 right on the top of your head
I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
so tight there I’m not instead
here such a long way it seems

 I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
just a voice on the wire
here such a long way it seems
hoping fate is a liar

just a voice on the wire
those hard words I cannot change
hoping fate is a liar
praying time will rearrange

 those hard words I cannot change
wrap up everything that’s bad
praying time will rearrange
fix the truths that make you sad

wrap up everything that’s bad
banish pain and hug you too
fix the truths that make you sad
if I were there I’d kiss you
