Touch my face and talk to me
Of love.
Touch my face
And look in my eyes.
Tell me that you love me
And not that you lust me.
Hold my hands
And put them to your heart.
Let me feel your heart beat fast.

Hope.
Maybe I’ll meet you in heaven.
And I’ll be glad you’re there.
Cause here, we could never
Make it.
Here...
We had no hope.

Why can’t you say what you mean?
Fast...
Why do you have to
Beat around the bush ?
Just let it go!
Say what you mean
And mean what you say...
Bam!!!

And all my secret places.

Dare I hope
That life will smile at me
Once again?
Dare I hope
That I smile and mean it?
Dare I hope
That I can walk in nature
And see its’beauty?
Yes...I think I dare.

I’m a fixer upper
A little used
A little run down
In desperate need of repair.

Sometimes nothing helps.
The candle still burns.
I take another turn,
I try to live yet I fall...
But the candle still burns.
It flickers and blazes
And even though
I might want
The wick to fade...
The candle still burns.

This cup of hopelessness
That I’m drinking
Is bitter
But I can’t stop imbibing
And I must have another.
This time it will be a cup
Of loneliness
And then another cup
Of sadness.
My cup runneth over.

What am I going to do
With my tomorrow ?
The question lingers
Unanswered.
To much time
And no accounting,
To much time
To fill.

The last person who made me
Smile was my grand daughter.
She has giant eyes and tells giant
Tales.
The last person I said I love you to was my son. I don’t see him
Much but we will always have a bond that cannot be broken.
The last time I cried was a couple
Of days ago. My father passed away last month and I haven’t been able to truly mourn him.
The last time I apologized was a while ago. I can’t exactly remember. I do apologize to God mostly for not having patience with my mother although I don’t
Show her that side of me.
The last time I said thank you was yesterday. I say thank you all the time.
The last time I talked to my parents was two months ago before my father passed. I too...

You say, because I can love
And still walk away.

Until I was ghosted.
I thought I was the one
Who was alive
But you took that with you
When you left the way
You did

You took your love away.
You took yourself away
And left a cavern
In my heart
For loss of you.
I know you don’t think of me
Or you wouldn’t have gone
But you walked away.
How does one do that?
Just walk away
And never look back.
I wish I could do that.

Everyone is only borrowed
And you never know
When they are leaving.
Lessons learned at an early age
And I’m afraid to love you
Cause people always leave.
I guess I’m afraid of the pain.

But on my hand
And with this hand

In silence you left me
With unfinished business
I could not address
For you were gone.
In silence you answered me
And the answer was deafening.
In silence you ignored me
As if I didn’t exist
And for you, I didn’t.
In silence my heart mourns
And is left
With a piercing question...
Why?

Time is what I want
To spend with you.
Time is what I don’t have.
Time is what I want to have with you
To shoot the breeze
And just laugh.
Time is what I don’t have.
Time is what I want
To watch your life
To watch you grow
But time is what I don’t have...
Time.

When you finally learn,
When you finally become
Enlightened
You learn that your treasures
Are not built in gold
But in hearts and blood
And the people you love.

Music frees me.
It empties my soul.
It cleans me
And makes me feel whole.
Music inspires me
And moves me.
It’s a joy I can’t control.

When I think of you,
I think of you with love.
When I let go of you,
I feel no hatred and no remorse.
For I loved you and I gave you
My best
But I can no longer be
Your stepping stone.
So I walk away
And leave you to yourself.
And hope when you think of me,
You think of me with love.

I never knew depression
Was worth money.
PTSD pays.
Who knew?
My depression is worth nothing
But this hole in my heart
I can’t climb out of.
But rack up baby.
At least they pay you for the emptiness.
I should of joined the Army
So they could put a price
On my emptiness.

Red is the color of chaos
For me.
Red is the color I see
When I am in a rage with thee.
Red is deception
And confusion.
Red are blood tears I’ve cried
And the pain I feel.
Red is definitely
Not my color.

You are getting closer
But I still can’t touch you.
You are getting closer
Yet so far.
And I taste you
With my eyes.
It’s the closest I can come.
You are forever on my mind,
Love defined.
I think of you
All the time.

I just want to laugh
And mean it.
I just want to hang ten
With you;
Forget about the bad times
And live in this moment.
I just want to let go
And not think.
I just want to feel.
I want to feel good.
And I never want
To come down from my cloud.

Being confined, it took me a long time
To live.
It took me a long time
To be one of you.
So if I seem a little young,
For my age,
It’s only that I’m curious
To finally taste what life is like
And the freedom to reach out
And take a bite.

We used to get together
On the west end,
After work
And just walk
Maybe go to a restaurant.
Those days were full of hope.
Never thought the climb
Would be over.
Never thought we’d reach
That apex.
And then, we’d drink till we were
Drunk.
And make drunk love.
It was raw and at least true.
Decades gone by
And we made it.
It’s so true that phrase ...
It’s lonely at the top.

It just takes a single moment,
A look...
Stopped in time.
I look at those moments
And I remember
Our beautiful times
So sublime.

When I look at you
I see the beauty that you were.
Eyes green like the Bermuda sea,
Raven hair and a smile
That reached your soul.
I loved it when you sang to me
Before I slept.
When I look at you
I see the beauty that you were
In all the lines in your face now
And in the dim of your eyes...
It was your soul all the time.

An ode to my mother.
