MOMMY'S ADDICTIONPage 5 of 106    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
Daddy? Where is Mommy?
Why doesn't she call?
Daddy? where is Mommy?
she never visits us at all.

Daddy wipes away the tears,
Then tries his best to explain,
What drugs have done to Mommy,
But can't take away the pain.

How to mend the breaking hearts,
of the children he loves so much,
And try to justify the Mother's love,
who now is out of touch.

The harm is never ending,
The tears are stains that last,
The pillows a silent witness,
of Mommy's addictive past.

The children stand by Daddy,
as they said their last goodbye,
Mommy didn't make it out,
She didn't have to die!

Based on a true story of someone who committed suicide when she couldn't give it up.

Just be,
silent and still,
feel the depth,
Warm the chill.

take all in stride,
yet be who you are,
Look to the heavens,
find your own star.

Admire
the fire,
or the mouse
in the house,
be a bug
in the rug,
be a cat
with a hat,
forget how
to meow!

I am the reincarnation
of Ichabod Crane,
A little bit slow,
and a little insane.

I ride a horse backwards,
and dress upside down,
sometimes a devil,
and sometimes a clown.

I'm lanky and clumsy,
with knuckles that drag,
A nose like a carrot,
and cheekbones that sag.

Not long to go
before I shut down
for the summer,
go play in the sun,
and drive round
in my Hummer,
go out on the links,
and play a few rounds,
mmmm don't I like,
how that sounds,
but maybe I'll be back
when the fall arrives here,
just not so sure
it's not quite clear,
have to wait and see.

Alas, let me hear with my eyes,
for my ears grow old of sight,
Let me touch with my heart,
as my hands they grow tight.

Alas! the truth falls on deaf ears,
Even in sight, your blindness grows,
lay your claim with the learned,
all the while your virtue shows.

Go on! Place your hand on your heart!
Yet, you stop! What do you fear?
Afraid it might not be there?

Go on! Open your eyes! they're open you say?
Then why is it you still cannot see
beyond yourself? It's only me.

Go on! Reach out and take my hand,
I feel your touch, yet apart,
in it, there is no heart!

Spoken words
in a waste land,
just like the sun,
falling on deafness,
Recoiling, like the cobra,
then striking out,
Attacking the presence
that threatens that
which you do not
understand.
Ignorance
is bliss!

Summer

Like the song says:

Bring on those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.....

BBQ's, golf, picnics and ball,
Beaches and hiking,
and trips to the mall,
sitting outside on a warm summers eve,
reading and watching, and sipping ice tea.
Visiting family and friends when I can,
Taking my girls without having a plan,
driving around through the country side,
Finding a horse to take for a ride,
But late at night, just watch for my star,
sitting outside strummin my guitar.

Hi wicked...thanks for the visit. The summer is coming and lots to do.

Every Sunday is family day,
me and the girls go out to play,
Ferry cross the harbor, waterfront tour,
Then off to the gardens, much to explore.

Band at the bandstand playing their jazz,
Artists and crafters with a little pizzazz,
Then off to the canteen for ice cream delights,
that ends our day without any fights.

Lazily lounging in emerald green grass,
Toasting the summer raising a glass,
Searching the ground for clover of four,
Spending time with the one I adore.

The warmth of the sun upon our skin,
equalling the warmth that comes from within,
We lay there together, just sharing a day,
Lazily teasing, it's our time to play.

Good morning sweety....summer is coming! Not far away now.

Coated in oils,
to bring on a tan,
bare to essentials,
laying in sand,
feeling the sun,
upon my back,
just don't get the sand,
down in yer crack!

Thanks again Anna....love the write. Summer is definitely here, and I am loving it.

In the heat of the night,
when the moon is just right,
I can see in your eyes,
the heaven in the skies.

The windows of your soul,
the heart you have stole,
The love that we share,
so precious and rare.

COLD
Posted: 6/2/2007 5:46:57 PM
Blood stains,
wet and cold,
on gold.

Pooling close,
wounds raw,
yet to thaw.

Ice cold,
Shot dead,
thru the head.

Love,
Divine comedy,
the mule's apocalypse,
infinite fantasy
of dreamers,
illusion,
paradox
of hearts
in a
wasteland.

Search the streams,
in dreams,
in pools,
cesspools
of human
disintegration,
waste of dissatisfaction,
toxic souls,
floating in the endless
swamp of obsession,
looking for
completeness.

The long road,
twisting, winding
through streets,
sideroads of pain,
lashed to the masts
of battered pasts,
souls bruised,
abused,
tortured minds,
crippled view
of reality,
locked in
it's own abyss
of darkness.

Nails can stimulate,
subtle caresses,
down your back,
find the itch,
perhaps a snack.
Then we'll see
what else can be,
arranged.

Sleep, dream reality,
blood stained glass,
stages of fear cast,
Falling, falling again,
over and over,
in blackness,
through windows
crashing to the next
shattering, waking,
or am I?
here or there.

SOUND
Posted: 6/3/2007 7:29:13 PM
Cascading audibles,
a silent ear,
hears .

White noise static,
filling space,
erase.

Waves of silence,
increasing,
ceasing.

Falling tones,
transform
sound.
