Mundane Labor

Wake up,
use the bathroom.

Open the blinds,
feed the cat — meow.

Clean the dishes,
take the trash out.

Get dressed for work,
pack a lunch.

Leave for work,
at 7 a.m.

Get home,
change clothes
leave for the gym.

Exercise,
go back home.

Shower,
Cook dinner.

Eat,
Do laundry.

Watch TV OR
scroll endlessly on
social media.

Set alarm,
charge phone,
lights out.

Repeat.

143.

There they met for the first time.

She knew he was about to change her world.

Alone they talked, smiled, laughed –

Without a care.

There he picked her up –

For once she wasn’t scared.

She gave him her 143 that day,

He wept happiness –

Something he lost a long time ago.

They met at a park and have loved ever since.

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

Weep

The day earth fell,
it was gloomy.

Those dreadful words
I detested came true.

News slipped between
the mountain ridges.

I wept like a willow tree,
leaving water everywhere.

Time to piece together,
the man you were.


In the days coming, I’m sure I’ll write more but for now this poem will suffice. Friday night, my biological father passed away. Four days before my 24th birthday.

Commemoratory

Time withered away
our hurtful memories.
Leaving behind your
joyous smile.

Here I sit without you
as I await the night.

Like sand in the wind,
my dreams vanish.
Leaving me empty
handed.

The day will return
when you’re beside me
once more in paradise.

Love

Those dainty words
twirl and dance
between my eyes.

I’ll say it today,
I’ll say it tomorrow,
I love – you.

Sweaty palms, speedy heart,
unable to calm the storm
as you glide towards me.

Your smile grows wide,
melting my heart.

The world sits in
silence, now’s my chance.

I……I…..I love…..
I love you!
