Promise

That word…

so simple…

Seven little letters…

yet…when broken

will turn worlds upside down…

lives inside out…

AND

destroys all Trust

Do not say it…

if you cannot keep it..

A Promise

Is This Love?

You say you

Love Me

Yet, love is

Not…

Controlling…

Confining…

Manipulative…

Abusive…

Why do I respond

to the sound of your

voice…

My body betrays

my mind

Lust…the

Worst of all

Emotions

Causing damage that

goes unseen…

But…never unfelt

I care for You…

Desire You…

But, can

NEVER

Love You…

Not this kind of

Love…

This control…

This jealousy…

I can only

Tolerate my

Existence with

You

White Shoulders

Growing up…

My Mother never

wore perfume

A family friend

always wore…

White Shoulders

To this day…

When I catch the

smallest whiff of that scent

I immediately

go back to my childhood

and a feeling of

Elegance

Someone Else

Someone Else

We all travel this World

Looking…

Searching…

Seeking

Wanting…

something just out of

our Reach

We may not

be aware of this

need…

but, it is

Ever Present

Giving us the

courage…

desire…

to go forward

As if to say…

“I was meant to be someone else”*

until we…if luck would have it…

actually look our

true self in the eye

AND

say, “Ah…there you are after all!”

Night Sky

Sitting outside enjoying

an amazing Summer

Sunset…

something in the North West

sky catches my eye

A quick flash…

And then it is gone

Did I really see something?

There it is again…

this time more

North than West

moving at what

seems a rapid pace

Gone again…

full dark is setting

in now and the stars are

slowly showing their faces

There…due North

This time a triangle of

shining silver disks…

lights?

Dipping…diving…leaving

a trail of sparkling stars

and then with a twist…

gone…again

News reports the

following day

indicate multiple sightings

of something unusual

in the night

Sky

This poem is from several experiences over the years.  Sightings all over the state of Texas describing exactly the same bright lights or disks.  To me they appeared to be shining mirrors hanging in the sky and would simple turn to the right and disappear leaving total blackness in their wake…only to appear again seconds later in another position.  UFOs…

Free-For-All

Free-For-All

Life throws all sorts of

things at us

when we least

expect them

One minute our lives

are smooth and easy

And

The next instant

An all out

balls-to-the wall

free-for-all

No wonder most of us

are stressed…

confused

AND

just crazy

Deep breath…

On foot…

then the next

Get on with

the Day

Take life as

it is

Tackle it head-on

AND

Survive!

MERCY

I know you believe you

are trying to apologize

However…

Begging has never

become you

Wanting forgiveness

can be difficult

Forgiveness…

like Trust

must be earned

Begging for

Mercy

will never happen

Until the beginning

of Trust

can be learned

Expectations

Expectations

You have too many

Conditions

to many lies

The Web Tightens

I will not be

Defined

by your Terms

Your conditions

Or

Your unrealistic

Expectations

I am my own

Person…

Wise…

Intelligent…

Opinionated…

Your Ego gets

in the way

of Anything…

Everything…

in my Regard

You are Not

what you think

you are

Your projection

is rapidly

Becoming more

Pathetic

Destroy that Worshiped

Shrine

I’ll Try Again Later

I’ll Try AGain Later

Like two ships passing

in the night

You were there…

I was not

We tried so hard

to make things right…

to make things work…

two ships

We kept missing

one another

I was always late…

my job interfering

keeping me confined

Your time was limited

but, never compatible

with mine

Always…

the story of my

Life

Two ships passing

in the night

The right person

at the

wrong time

Me…

Always

To Late

Summer Days

Summer Days

Childhood fun …
Red Rover …
Crack the Whip …
Roller Skating on
Saturday mornings
Living on our bikes …

Carefree Summer days …
Snow-cones and lemonade …
Running barefoot in the sand…
Flip flops when the ground
was too hot …
Swimming until we were
too tired to move
Catching lightening bugs
in a Mason Jar …
Breezy nights on the
sleeping porch …

Oh … the memories
the wonderful friendships
made and kept for
a lifetime

Looking back …
I yearn for a simpler
Time …
when life was uncomplicated
and meaningful …
loving and safe …
No worries or stress …
just LOVE
