sobriety overrated!!Page 7 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Been combin' through these threads
'till my head be snarled dreds
Time to pause, reset the meter
Prime two paws, respect the reader

It's a cozy place, Scars: few bullet-holes 'n shrapnel
But I like the ambiance: siren-light theatre

It's late on my end
Time to wend
Time to mend.

Howdy folks, 'n g'night all.

heat not working but heart's just fine
Posted: 11/25/2006 1:21:26 PM
it always is
a conundrum
someone here
surely can help

why the different
spellings of one word
grey gray gres gris
sighing here
on this an unusually
grey day in this desert too
tim you aren't alone
surely you know this too

i'm here listening
to the the
infect me
with your love
watching cigarette smoke
unfurling and winding
straight to my sharper image
ionizers taking it in inhaling
all that i don't
the residual smoke
eaten by machines
quietly efficiently
they are hungry machines
far more hungry
than i this afternoon
for i am content

sipping firstly
earl grey green tea
then moved on to
malibu spiced rum
with cranberry juice
yes i know it's early
but tastes just fine

he called smiling
i could hear in his voice
thinking of his beautiful teeth
just to say hello
i was on the phone
complaining again
heat still not working
after 3 service calls
this week alone
so i sit here
tapping
reading
feeling
sipping
comforted
by cyber truth
and kindred
cozy am i
even without
comfort of heat
too cold to venture out
to buy logs
for the fireplace
when monday comes
the guys at work
will fill my trunk
with plenty of cut wood
to warm my hearth

and tonight
there is a little
sweet puffy parrot
who needs
human attention
i know a sweet one
he adores woman
and i am a woman
so we get along fine

and likely there
i will be
after a long tub soak
smelling the steam
of an iron
not in my hand
spoilt me
he likes ironing
and has asked
what i need
pressed
oh how
i love bartering

the intruder never screams but tiptoes
Posted: 11/25/2006 4:14:07 PM
ahh it's not always been
good and warm and kind
but now a few just wanna
like a cat plays with a rat
killing it blindly enjoying
the scent of it's kill
mess with my green tea
and my benzodiazepine mind

they want to share stuff
some better left understated
like the memory of that hook
on the bedroom ceiling
long ago twisted and reeling
chained as like memory
best left in past because
some of us know it's where
we are now that's reality
and more sincere just what i feel

with an i'm really sorry
i dared to open myself
posting such drivel
yet just sharp enough to
make one think of retching
isn't that more fetching
my scars are part of my inside
and part of my insight
just as true as the fact that
my ink is part of my outside
as part of the shield that i wear
you see not everyone wants
to remember and stray
back into darkness
it is with much hard and not easy work
that i have crossed a very long line
spanning many years of pain and time
with pride i hold myself higher than ever
i used to as i wasn't raised right
shh no one wants to revisit scars of abuse
victim no more to come a very long path
with grace i bow out and without rancor i'll stay
but just one thing before i take leave
i bid you happier days ahead of these now as
everyone deserves to be wherever they choose

ink closed his account
i know not if he
has phoenixed
under a new name
has a new game
or has decided
to leave us
hanging here
for eternity
