Never Ever

Ugh, another fake smile. Lies all over social media. It’s great you have six pack abs because you took a “break” from everything.

I think “I’ll never look like that” so why be upset. Then the gross feelings come about from the 3 helpings of penne and sauce I just shoveled in.

Oh well, another day another carb I guess.

But, I got outside today and drank some coffee so it wasn’t half that bad lol.

Enjoy your life the way you want and I will remind myself to do the same.

Empty

A hungry stomach that food won’t fill

Smiles with-out teeth and always going uphill

Does the sun come out with the shades always closed

Glass is very empty there’s never a half full

Blank walls a staring, no stories to be told

Come closer she whispers, and fret not my friend

The sun is always shining

With that glass in your hand.

Roses In The Light

December 1st

Warm and muggy rain

Night-light on the house

Shines on fading blooms

Of pinkish hues

Death comes soon

And the bloom is no more

Stuck on a Boat

A gull flew over and with a feather, dropped a note on a little boat. It said:

“Dear Sailor, the oars are filthy on that little dingy, not even the surf can clean up that dirt. You left your mast up and overstressed the hull, dumb thinking the ocean will always be at a lull.”

Check In 2

I probably need to do more of these since I go on “stealth mode” so frequently.

I would like to say that I’ve been at a loss for words but that’s not entirely true. Putting them into complete thoughts to convey a point is where I am really having difficulty as of late.

I usually get a picture in my head or take a picture of something in real life, but the motivation is not there.

So, to get the ball re-rolling, I just checked back in with this short post.

Thanks for indulging meπŸ˜‰

Trees

Some days all you have is a view of the trees at sunset or sunrise. The rest of the day is filled with sickness and broken sleep maybe some food in between.

But everyday the trees breathe. As do we. The lucky ones I guess.

There is a sunrise and a sunset which the trees always see.

And all we have is a view of the trees.

Parking Tickets

I can’t wait for you, Not right now at least.

I’m double-parked and too broke to pay the parking ticket.

It’s not a boot but a lead weight they’ll tie to my car.

Use another road or find a city street but don’t leave that trouble for me.

We Don’t Owe

No more calls

No more late nights

It’s just a fog in my head

My eyes swollen and burning

My chest is long and empty

No hunger, no yearning

No one owed us anything in this life

Not even a goodbye

Come And Go

You’ve only just gotten here

don’t leave so soon.

Rushing in

Always

Leaving me too soon.

I thought the universe heard me.

When you messaged me

My wanting and wishing had came through.

Nope not this time just like the times before.

You are shutting everything off

Everything down

No offense to me

It’s conveniently never about me.

We tug

we war

You come. You go.

Poe House

Baltimore, Maryland

An impromptu trip.

I was going to England, but the universe had different plans for my trip. Well, Wow Airlines had different plans because they went bankrupt a couples days before I left. 😑 flights cancelled, all aircraft grounded and I’m chilling at BWI Airport.

So when in Baltimore, go see Poe. Just don’t go when there’s a baseball game. Traffic was horrendous. It was a tiny house on the corner of a north Amity street with narrow stairs and darkened rooms. A short self guided tour with local macabre art on display through the house.

It was a good treat to see as I tried making the best out of my trip.

Keep Coming Back

Why is it

Once so many days have passed,

The sun comes up

And I’m here

At last.

All the work was done

To outgrow the thoughts of you,

Yet once again at last

My heart belongs to you.

Beale Street

Memphis Tennessee.
