Question:

Have you ever mourned someone who is still very much alive?

Remembrance

In the end we all become stories.

That doesn’t mean that the stories are true.

It doesn’t mean that the stories accurately reflect you.

And when the last person that knew you dies your story fades…

Until the last person that they shared pieces of you with then dies

And so on until your story evaporates into the ether.

 

I remember you

but through rose-colored glasses

you, only better

and with my last breath

I hope someone remembers

a much better me

Beautiful Friend

 

I could —

But there is Death to remember,

Jim’s beautiful friend,

there is the pain to remember

the pretty red thoughts of steel on skin

and the stinging bite as you slide flesh under blade

~

I could —

But there is a time for everything

and maybe my bones need not be ground to dust just yet

or maybe there is time left to dream

~

I am a butterfly in chains,

black booted, bereaved, all in sinner’s black

~

There is a time and place for everything

oh why is it so damn difficult

this business of love and Death

and oh what a mess

Easter

chocolate bunny

sits atop a basket of brightly hued plastic grass

surrounded by a sprinkling of jelly beans

and colorfully dyed hard boiled eggs

an Easter basket

 

*though for me its all about the chocolate!

oh, you do not hop

your ears, they do not listen

poor Easter bunny

your nose does not twitch

sadly you are not fuzzy

poor Easter bunny

yummy chocolate

ears will be the first to go

poor Easter bunny!

when all hope is gone

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay

the pain in your heart

seeps out of your eyes

and while you still long for freedom

you’ve long ago lost the will to fight

slowly, you’ve succumbed to your demons

now, into the abyss you take flight

with wings far too tattered to fly

you knowingly, willingly depart

and as you fall to your enviable death

only the stillness

bears witness

as you take your last breath.
