Flashback Friday Poetry: Peaceful Desert

the sky was dark as the moon shined
bringing only a whisper across the desert

the sand was calm as the wind lay silent
the cacti kept a watchful eye on each other

the earth was quiet with no creature roaming
clouds crept by as if to mystify

i wish my mind could follow the pattern
and hush itself with the dreamy desert

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Echoes

the Noises are encompassing
They surround me everywhere i go
some are Roaring; some are a Whisper
making me Shake or Calming my nerves
lifting my Spirits; breaking my Resolve
i hear Them as i sleep
They are never away
the Sounds of my Demons
Nightmares as i wake

Tuesday Poetry: Man Up

I fight to keep myself strong
but years of wear and tear break through
as I sob on your shoulder.  Feeling like
the smallest ounce of a man
who has nothing left but excuses
and a negative attitude that
drive you away from me,
as more tears form and roll
down my face.  It was easier
when I was small because I knew so few
things about the world and could
throw away my feelings as ignorance.
Perhaps this was bad, preventing me
from actually learning to cope with
everything thrown in my path.
I didn’t know you then but I
like to think we would have been friends,
playing and exploring together.
Pulsating positive vibes to each
other, helping one another grow
and mature into strong, independent,
capable adults.  Can we help each other
now before we spiral into chaos?
