You came

You came along when I felt life
had dealt me a bad hand.
You then made a life full of aces.

This is one of many I have in black spirals.
I will try to share more of these.

The Lesson

How many times will I have it happen
to me where I get knocked down
by the same enemy again and again.

Only to say I won’t have that happen to me
but here I sit feeling like someone has
torn my to pieces.

They must enjoy seeing me bleed and suffer.
I really think they get off to it. How sick is that.
I have to finally learn the lesson  before
its to late for me.
If those that hurt me have to deal with the
same pain then so be it.

I don’t make the rules anymore.

Raindrops

Raindrops hit the metal patio cover
first slow, then  so fast
it sounds as if marbles are being dumped
from a jar.
Slows and then nothing at all.

Another wave gains strength as the storm
moves forward again.

Just as my emotions start with a tear
running down my cheek, then a rush
like a river while my heartbeats as the thunder.

A moments pause it seems to be, until the
wave of heartache rolls through again.

Looking in the Mirror

Looking in the mirror
I see a stranger staring
back at me.

The person looks like someone I
thought I once knew.

A ghost of the past or future.
An ending that only the powers
to be know for sure.

They are judge, jury and executioner.

His Words

His words set her on fire like never before.

Better have a fire extinguisher, no damn it
you better have several fire trucks-  available
when they finally meet.

Face to Face

Body to Body

Flame to Flame

I’m having trouble

I’m having trouble wrapping my arms
around anything/everything right now-

I have all these paths laying out
in front of me, looking inviting,
with lots of possibilities.

But I seem to be spinning my wheels
and burning rubber and not getting anywhere.
I’m getting more restless and frustrated
the more I look at them.

I’m not getting the answers
I need to find my way.
I have lost my map!
