I write what I feel…



Post No. 861




Once there was a time

A time no word would rhyme

A time when I died inside

Once there was a time


But it was true what they said

The cog locked, the wheel turned

The sun burned once more in the sky

Once there was a time


Words tripped and fell

My head was too full

As they tried and tried

To climb out of my skull

Once there was a time

And Time

Post No. 854


And Time


And time can be so misunderstood

Whether flying by in the blink of an eye

Or dragging slowly, stretching, extending

Seemingly depending on one’s view

And thyme is of the essence too

Stuffing in a fowl never smelled as good —

The aroma beckoning our hunger pangs

We walk life’s path hand-in-hand with time

Alongside us and our shadow lags behind

Caught Up by Life

Post No. 795

Caught Up by Life


Living in a world of words

Dizzying whizzing as I lie in bed

While they whirl around my head

A carousel, a wishing well

A spelling bee buzzes in and out

Playing catch-me-if-you-can

Can, can, can, all the rage

With dancers on a Paris stage

Memories are all we have

Smoke and mirrors reflecting

Deflecting through the glass

Champagne bubbles while we try

To read the answers in our eyes

But time has been and gone

Too late to question were we right

Or were we wrong…
