LAST CHANCE

Tell me please
This isn’t my
Last gasp…
Right?
I’m not ready
To give up

The fight

Life falling short
Did I ask too much
Or was I in the
Wrong time?
Often thinking
Born too early…

Or too late?

Take a number
Please hold
For the next
Available
Representative
It can’t be the
Sum of life…
I want more
And I want

It NOW!

SMITTEN

C’mere, Baby
Have no fear
You know
I love you…
I love you
Dearly

You know
I was smitten
From the start
You touched
My soul…
I gave my heart

Don’t need to
Spell out all
I want with you
But for starters
C’mere, Baby…
I want to kiss you

 

BORN AGAIN

You tell me
You’ve been
Born again…
But I don’t
Understand

Why should
I believe you
Even if you
Say you can…
So answer

Was there
Something
About your
First birth?
Do you hold it
Against your
Mother?
Maybe you
Should sue…

You make it
Seem ’twas
Necessary
But you did it
By choice

Just between
You and me…
I think it’s all
A bunch of noise…
Keep it to yourself

IN MY DEFENSE

In my defense
I don’t need
To justify my
Feelings…
They’re
Very real
Very raw

 

I also
Needn’t
Apologize
To one who
Wronged me
When I only
Sacrificed

 

My dreams
All became
Secondary
To insatiable
Demands…for
Things I could
Barely bear

 

Now I seek
Restitution…
I can’t reclaim
Times and dreams
Gone by…kaput
By I claim my
Independence

 

My mind now free
Of that
Which binds
It’s in my
Attitude…
Here you see
The signs
 

I AM MAD…IN A GOOD WAY

I am mad…
In a good way
Insane…
That’s not
In dispute
I hardly have
The time left
Or by the day
For such a
Pursuit as
Writing…

 

The trouble is
I have much
To say…too much?
Bottled up
Too long
It needs
A way out
To release
The toxins
As well as
The wishes
For where
I wish to be
For the
Duration

 

Life has
Limitations
Time perhaps
The most so…
And pressing…
Look out…
Here it comes…
The dam’s now
Broken…and all
I can hope…
Your humanity
And mine
Can spend
Some time
Together
While we

I NEVER SAID GOODBYE

She was the first…
I was sure she’d be
My one and only
I was smitten…
She was not…
Or so it seems

I didn’t want
To say goodbye
She filled my dreams
For what seemed
Forever and more…
Why was it so?

Perhaps I’ll
Never know…
It’s too late to ask
I held on tight…
Perhaps too long
And I never said
“Goodbye”

LONELY

How can you
Be lonely?
They’d ask…
A long
Relationship
Makes no
Guarantee
That it’s
Beneficial
To both…
There is no
Life with
One so
Narcissistic
They see
Only a
Self image
In any picture…
It’s distorted
And twisted
No room
For another
They’ll take
You as the
Prisoner…
Make you
Hate yourself…
The only
Solution…
RUN!
You can’t
Hide
 

HIDEOUTS AND SWAN SONGS

Pulling the covers
Over my head
They won’t see me…
Will they think
I’ve gone or dead?
Finding still
The wonderful
Solitude it brings
Hiding away from
Unpleasant things

Those who bring me down
Won’t see me around
Don’t I wish it was
Not still thus…
But running away?
Still haven’t…even
To this day…
Maybe it’s finally time
It’s not right right here
And will never be

Arrivederci!

DOODLING IN MY MIND

This artist
Doesn’t doodle
And he rarely draws
He never kept
A sketchbook
A journal seems
Redundant…
Ideas shuttle
Through his mind
Waking him as
Now at times…
Breaking with
Tradition not
A problem
Nor going
Against
The flow
It’s the process…

When untidy
Scraps of paper
Flutter from
His pockets
His thoughts
Will be seen
By others’ eyes…
You’ll be
In the know…
Or you wait
To see his
Masterpiece
(He hopes)
His fully formed
Ideas revealed
I don’t doodle, but…
When I must, I draw
In my mind

HIT OR MYTH?

They always
Tell us to
Beware of
Alligators
In the sewers
Gang cars
With no lights
Spider eggs
In bubble gum
Contaminated
Halloween sweets
And spontaneous
Human combustion
So say urban myths…
Some thrive on
Things to scare
Themselves…
Aren’t you glad
You don’t believe

& Aren’t you glad
You didn’t get
Mama Cass’
Ham sandwich?
