Fools

It's just another day
that's no different from any other.
A day of being told to shut the flip up
so now what do I say?

I'm sitting here believing it's true
that I surround myself with jerks.
Well, I am so sick of all of them
and my mind screams, "Screw you!"

The things that I take the time to explain
fall on closed ears and are never heard.
I'm just a stupid, ugly nobody
who cares that you cause me such pain?

But, you are so special, spoiled and cute
and of course everyone knows it.
Everyone bows to the King on his throne
so who am I to dispute?

I'm OK for now for I'm put in my place
downstairs all alone.
I love it here for it's all mine
and I do not have to show my face.

Peace and quiet, sweet solitude
away from simple minded and immature fools.
If only I could just walk away from this
I'd have a much better attitude.

Happy Birthday Karen
Tho' this one we won't be sharin'
Tryin' to go on but lookin' back
Score one for that medical quack
In your glow can no longer bask
Why, was your job done need to ask
Must have been, you'd leave nothing unfinished
Memories, thoughts, love will never be diminished
Our time was short, we made up for lost
Got first prize when together we were tossed
Dark days and storms no need to fret
Just not ready to let you go quite yet

Thank you for your thread - The title says you know what the writing is about

Many long years my life awaited you
At last you entered and I bid adieu
To emptiness wandering and lonely heart
Too soon for me fate shot its dart
Is there a moral a lesson a plan
That took you from this happy man
Not good to whine and say poor me
Or wonder why it couldn't be
Pondering things small minds can't know
Grateful am I you helped me grow

Time for me to share a poem written to me by my wonderful boyfriend that I met here at POF. He is not a poet by any means so this was truly a treat for me when I found this hidden in my jacket pocket.

Tattooed Angel

With every watchful step I take,
you help me find my way.
This bond we have that will not break,
grows stronger every day.

You've welcomed me with open arms,
acceptance, love and grace.
A gentle touch, the sweetest kiss,
a smile upon your face.

I agree, Om! It inspired me to write one for him. Here it is...

Evermore

Thank you for the surprise,
love wrapped in romantic disguise.
Thank you for the smile this morning,
given with a tasteful warning.
Thank you for the loyalty and trust,
to make this bond grow, it is a must.
Thank you for kind words, warmth and touch,
sweet kisses of honey, bear hugs and such.
Thank you for finally opening the door,
allowing me in for evermore.

Thanks Om!


One

Hold me oh so tight,
Squeezing with all your might.

Feel my breath, warm upon your skin,
My heart thumping from deep within.

Cast away all worry and stress,
Focus only on my gentle caress.

Listen to my whispers of love and care,
A symphony of words floating on air.

Open your arms and hold me close,
Together we stand as the wind blows.

No Answer

A visit from my boss today,
A smile on his face,
He delivered with grace,
A message of dismay.

The words, "I'm dying,"
Dropped like a bomb,
Visions of Mom,
"Please, no crying."

One more time,
Terminal cancer,
Left with no answer,
A good man in his prime.


God Bless my boss Bruce and his family.

Dream On, a 3 A.M. Musing

I've dreamed many dreams that never came true,
I've seen them vanish at dawn.
But I've realized enough of my dreams, thank God,
To make me want to dream on.

I've prayed many prayers, when no answers came,
Though I waited so patient and long,
But answers came to enough of my prayers
To make me keep praying on.

I've trusted many a friend who failed
And left me to weep alone,
But I've found enough of my friends to be true
To make me keep trusting on.

I've sown many seeds that fell by the way
For the birds to feed upon,
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on.

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain
And gone many days without song,
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To enjoy living on.

In November of 84 I wrote this for my daughter who was a cancer patient. She is now doing fine we are living with side effects of thearpy but having a great time enjoying life. I must agree writing is thearpy.

MISTY

She's just a child
Just a tiny little girl
That lays in a bed with rails on either side,
and stares into a world all her own.

There are no tears,
no smiles
And her eyes look like that
of the time between midnight and dawn

Clouded with fear and pain
non-understanding.

The eyes that stare from within
this frail, bony body that soon will be four,
Can tell you of more pains than
the deaths of ten thousand men.

And then I ask myself again
of this stranger that lays before me and calls me Mommy.

Lord,
Is not this the child that lay in my womb?
Is not this the child that I lifted to me to feed from my breast?
Is not this the child that could put a smile upon the saddest of men?
Is not this the child that always wore a smile of joy on her chubby little face?
Is not this the child that would talk till you thought she'd never stop?
Is not this the child that joy and happiness and good health surrounded?

Then tell me Lord
Why is this child...My child,
So distraught,
Lifeless,
And full of fear?

Laying here
her tiny hands not able to grip,
And nothing by mouth due to the sores on her lips,
make her weigh that of a child not long out of my womb.

Now tell me Lord
Is not this the child you gave to me?
I plead now Lord
Let her stay with me.

I wrote this from future mothers to be to the fathers of their expected children:



NO ONE DEFINES THE TASKS OF PARENTS AND WHAT COMES WITH BEING A FATHER
MOST DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, THEY FIGURE WHY BOTHER

IM HOPING THAT THIS POEM, WILL WAKE YOU UP TO SEE
THAT RAISING OUR KIDS IS HARD, AND SHOULDN’T BE ALL ON ME

OR YOU’LL CONTINUE TO THINK THIS WAY,MAYBE I WILL STAY STUCK IN LOVE
IN TURN YOU WILL BE ASTONISHED, THAT PUSH HAS COME TO SHOVE

KARMA IS REAL AND I HEARD AND IT ALSO COMES IN TWO’S.
SO MAKE A CHOICE NOW DADDY…BEFORE SOMEONE FILLS YOUR SHOES

YOU WOULD NEVER HEAR THE CRIES OF MY HEART
MY EMOTIONS RUN RAMPID, MY SOULS TEARING APART

BEING ALONE PREGNANT, IS NOT THE MOST OF THIS PAIN
OUR CHILD DESERVES A CHANCE, HE COMES INNOCENT LIKE THE RAIN

ARGUMENTS ARE NOT HEALTHY, NEITHER IS PASSING BLAME
WE NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS SELFISHNESS NOW AND NARROW DOWN A NAME.

FOR OUR BABY WILL BE HERE SOON, THAT IS TRUTH 4 YOU.
SO BE THE MAN YOU SAID YOU WERE AND BE A REAL
FATHER TOO.

I CAN FORGIVE THE PAIN YOU CAUSED, FOR IT’S THE BEST FOR OUR CHILD
BUT AS LONG AS IT IS A THING OF THE PAST AND YOUR
DONE WITH RUNNING WILD

THE STREET HAS NOTHING FOR YOU AND TRUST THAT WE NEED YOU MORE
IM NOT SAYING YOU HAVE TO, BUT ITS BEST AND THAT IS FOR SURE

This one is opposite....from an expected father to the pregnant woman


MANY STORIES ARE TOLD, ABOUT A WOMAN TRING TO PULL IT
BUT NOW I MUST SAY CONGRATS TO YOU, YES IM BITING THE BULLET

SO YOUR SAYING IM THE FATHER, ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT
TOGETHER

AND OPTING TO GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE , REGARDLESS OF THE STORMY WEATHER

I CANNOT SPEAK ON FACTS THAT YOU DO OR DON’T BELIEVE
BUT WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT THERE IS NO WAY I WILL LEAVE?

PLEASE KNOW GIRL, THAT I WILL NOT SUFFER FOR LIFE
AND HAVING THIS CHILD IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU CLOSER
TO BEING MY WIFE

I WILL DO WHATS BEST IN TERMS OF RAISING THE SEED
TEACHING, LOVING AND TRYING TO PROVIDE
EVERYTHING THEY NEED

YOU DO THE SAME AND IT SHOULD WORK OUT FOR THE BEST
DON’T TRY TO USE HIM TO GET TO ME LIKE WHAT I HEAR BOUT THE REST

She Whispers

Never talks aloud
She wonders
She discusses
curiously
She Whispers
The words
You never hear
but
You Know
Inside you know
Outside you feel
She Whispers
and
You lean in
To hear
She Whispers
With no lips
She Whispers
Never talks aloud
She Whispers
and
You know

So good to see everyone stopping in and sharing their writings! What a great start to my day!

Tree299 - Misty deeply touched me and brought tears to my eyes. Whispers - very mysterious and personal. Loved them both. Please feel free to drop in anytime.

Separated44 - Keep on playing and doing what you do! Thanks for dropping in!

Yeahidid - Poems that any mother and father can truly relate to. Beautiful. Stop in again sometime!

Devilishous - God Bless you and your Mom and family. I know what you are going through and if you ever want to talk, please send me a message. I look forward to reading some of your poems!


I don't have anything myself to post today but wanted to share that I'm working on one. I was getting ready for work the other day and while looking in the mirror, I did not see myself but a reflection of my mother. It was both frightening and breathtaking at the same time. I'm in the process of putting the awesome circumstance into a poem. This one seems to be a little difficult because I cannot quite grasp the feelings and jot them down. Work in progress - Gotta love it!

Flesh and Blood

Splashing cold water upon my mug,
Glancing up into the mirror.
A ghostly reflection staring back at me,
My body slammed with a slug.

Beautiful eyes and soft blonde hair,
A radiant smile that melted my heart.
I wanted to scream and shout for joy,
But, alas, I did not dare.

As water slowly dripped over my cheeks,
Tiny rivers flowing so smoothly.
Artificial tears mingling with authenticity,
Through two souls bound, she speaks.

This is not only what you want to see,
We are flesh and blood.
Mother and daughter,
You Are Me!
