I’d Rather Be…

I’d rather be
listening to your voice,
than drying my tears.

I’d rather be…
hearing your life stories from you,
than others sharing for you.

I’d rather be…
holding your hand
than carrying your casket.

You’d rather be…
flying planes in the valley
than watching us weep.

I'd Rather Be Flying

Grasp

Their she stood
forsaken.

No words left to grasp.

As she said farewell,
to the unexpected.

Time moves forward,
as the wound heals.


Bare with me folks, as I begin my road to recovery.

Roots

Amoungst the shadows of summer,
young lovers whisper atop of
the old oak tree.

As the leaves sing with gleeful
colors of yellow and red,
they depart in their wake.

Who once were young lovers yearning —
for that moment of faded love
and sweet harmony echos within
the old oak tree roots.

No Man’s Land

A good friend of mine who is a graphic design artist, we decided to collaborate on this piece, I’d write and he would design the piece. This was to commemorate Earth.  Let me know what you think.

Opaque

Dark as the night sky,
her mind was full
of hard times.

A mask adorned those times,
expressing cheerful days
with a slight southern chime.

Eager to help you all the time,
never demanding for a return
only a ‘thank you’ will satisfy.

The world sees an opaque mask,
while she faces a larger battle.

Acceptance

She brushed the dust off
their portrait from 1987.
Side by side they stood
smiling on their wedding day.
They brought three children
into the world wrapped in care.
She refused to accept that
their love had died years ago.
Along the way she lost herself,
living to only see her children grow.
Now its her time to be herself once more,
finally accepting the dreadful truth.
