I SIT A WHILE

I SIT A WHILE
I sit awhile in this great outdoors
Breathing in the air
So clear
So clean
So fresh
I think of you whilst sitting here
Wondering how you are
It is great to be in the great outdoors
A time to relax
A time to calm down
To unwind
And let it all go
A time to reflect of the wonders
And miracles
That happens in our lives
Especially at this present moment in time
And be forever eternally grateful
For all the good
The kindness
And
Friendships bring
To each and everyone
Blissful to be out in the great outdoors

I WONT ABIDE

I WONT ABIDE
These feelings inside
They’ve torn me apart
Right to this heart
I was there by your side
A constant companion
A lover
A friend
To the bitter end
You were so wrapped up inside
With all that you denied
You rebuffed
You said you had had enough
You spurned
You turned
Said that I repulsed!
The anger
So you persist in being wrapped
Warped in your mind
Your mind full of games
Where you believe you gain
 You’re blinded, blinkered
With your own tortuous
Repugnant
Stagnant
Virtuousness
Righteousness
Yet you remain blameless
Shameless
Of the pitfalls
That befalls
Others in your realm
Over and over again
Where you believe
This is your gain!
Psychologically
And oh so methodically
But I left your side
And here the new story begins

I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN


I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN
My thoughts are jumbled, mumbled
I thought I had it all!
The happiness, ridden of all sadness
But then and now
My life is still full of sadness
I miss the tenderest of touches
I miss the softest of embraces
I miss the silly banter
I miss the candor
But do I?
Miss your candor
Your sincerity went blowing in the wind
Along with your openness
An openness to hold hands
An openness so that our lips met
Right there out in the open
Two lovers, two friends
Where there was no pretense
Now that the seasons have changed
The fa├žade and charades are over
You made me believe
And then you go and leave
But one thing remains
I still love you!
And nothing remains the same
Except for this hollowness
And here I sit wondering if you know
How it really, really feels to be left alone
How it really, really feels to feel this cold
How it really, really feels to be not held
Time is my enemy
Time is eternal
Time is not here!
Time keeps running away from me
My thoughts and feelings scattered
Scattered like the autumns leaves
Floating into the endless ether
It’s like you live in a world where you never listen!
A world full of your own glisten
Glitz and glamour
Minus the honesty, integrity and veracity
Time and seasons change
And I hope that you will too
For the next lady in your life
Not giving her any trouble and strife
